What's up guys and gals!? Been a while since our last SMASHERS Special, and with the holidays fast approaching, there's no better time! Family get togethers are always a great reminder of why we often live so far apart, and what better way to celebrate than to talk about our biggest pet peeves... in gaming! EXAMPLES: -I hate forced tutorials. Any game that features an unskippable boring tutorial automatically is garbage. I'm not gonna put up with it or play it beyond that! - The Nintendo platforms 'Accept' and 'Decline' buttons are reversed compared to the Playstation and Xbox. It's so annoying trying to reorient myself to a game when switching platforms constantly. - INVASIVE Microtransactions, need I say more? - The political landscape of gaming, etc... Feel free to use any of the above examples if those are your biggest pet peeves, or, better yet, come up with your own! It can be ANYTHING - in game, or in dealing with the game industry in general. Gaming Pet Peeves knows no bounds! ***IMPORTANT*** If you plan on participating, make sure to comment below saying so, and also what your BIGGEST Gaming Pet Peeve is, so that others will not duplicate yours unnecessarily. Duplications are fine, as long as it REALLY is something so annoying to you that you just HAVE to talk about it, but variety in these videos is the spice of life! Submission Details/Fine print: Make a video of yourself to be featured on an upcoming Smash JT SMASHER episode! - Patreon Privilege ($5+ tiers) - Priority given during my editing process, placing you close to the beginning of the video - To be fair to other submissions, TRY YOUR BEST to keep it under 1 minute, giving a BRIEF explanation of the pet peeve and why it annoys you so damn much! - Upload via YouTube as "unlisted", without background music & Email the link to: info@smashjt.com - IMPORTANT: Attach a .png logo of your channel in that email so that I can use it in the video when introducing your clip - Feel free to overlay footage of exactly what you're describing (if applicable) - Deadline MONDAY 11/19/18 (10 days from publishing this post - So that I can edit together and publish the video for Thanksgiving Day!) - Be loose & have FUN with this! This is a chance to express yourself for an audience that may not know you. Be UNIQUE! Looking forward to the submissions! Cheers, ~Smash

What's your favorite glitch/bug in a game that was unintended by the developer, but actually ended up IMPROVING the overall fun of the game for you? This one may be tough INITIALLY, but I bet if you think about it you can come up with something pretty unique! For example: What I'm going to do: Legend of Zelda: Link's Awakening (GB). Pressing select to pull up the map while transitioning screens will warp Link, allowing him to explore the world (and places never meant to be seen) way before he picks up the items to traverse. Here's a video of what I'm talking about: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=t8Vh-pZzIis Fine print: Make a video clip of yourself to be featured on an upcoming Smash JT video as a SMASHER! - Upload via YouTube as unlisted, without background music - ANY game for ANY platform is eligible - Keep it under 1 minute, giving a BRIEF explanation of what makes the glitch so cool - email the link to: info@smashjt.com - Attach a .png logo of your channel if you'd like it displayed in the thumbnail - Feel free to overlay footage of exactly what you're describing, if you're able to - Deadline 6/14/18 (TWO WEEKS FROM THIS POST) - Be loose, have FUN with this!! Be UNIQUE :-) Thanks - looking forward to your submissions! Let me know in the comments if you plan on participating! ~Smash

similar to the topic posted by Disc Cart in the "Everything Else" Forum where he asks what makes you click away from a video, I wanted to start a convesation here on what makes you actually click ON a video. Do you always click on videos from specific creators? or does it matter the topic? -'d if the topic matters, what are your favorite topics that get covered? Reviews? Rants? Predictions? Speculation? Comedy? The Thumbnail!? Im interested to hear your thoughts! personally, I try to watch every video from every channel I follow, but sometimes life gets busy, or everyone uploads the same day, or everyone is covering the same topic... so I dont always end up watching everything i normally would like to. what about you? How do you prioritize watching?

Shameless self promotion, but the reason for the topic (so... details): Video Link: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fi-08ZVqbAI Blog Post: https://www.smashjt.com/blog/youtube-vs-amazon What are your thoughts on YouTube vs. Amazon in the battle for views? From the perspective of being a creator, I constantly wonder about the future plans of Amazon, and where they'll be in 5-10 years compared to the future of where the YouTube platform will find itself. As it stands at this moment, Amazon has multiple barriers to entry, such as the paid Prime subscription service, the region locked viewing ability, a convoluted upload approval system, etc.; but many issues they face can be fixed fairly quickly if Amazon decides to shift their focus to the Amazon Prime Video platform. Because of the problems that Google's YouTube has been plagued with over recent years (favoritism, demonetization, broken algorithms, lack of support, etc.), many large creators are searching for a better platform to utilize. Once again, leaving small creators to pick up the pieces. Personally, I hope that YouTube gets their crap together and starts treating their creators like human beings instead of numbers and dollar signs. It'd be a shame (and a real pain in the butt) to have to start all over building a new audience on another platform from scratch, but hopefully fans travel over as well. Anything can happen, though. There was a time when I thought that Myspace would never lose out to any other social network... I'd love to hear from you guys on what you're thinking about all of this!

Anyone want a free steam code? I got a bunch for tons of games I know I'll never get around to playing. Let me know if you want one, and what type of game you're looking for. Cheers, -Smash
