Off Topic: What's On Your Regular YouTube Watchlist?

Media these days is all about watching what we want to, when we want to. Preferably for free. And in the gaming space, A lot of the "cover everything" outlets (from websites to TV to print) can't compete with the level of depth of specialists on Youtube.

What specialists do you regularly go back to? Both in a gaming sense, and in general. Who makes you laugh, who provides insights, and who's worth watching?

It'll be no surprise I watch a bit of Dark Souls and Bloodborne content. For lore, VaatiVidya is king. EpicNameBro is great too, though has veered a little more towards the Let's Play stuff for my liking. Vageta was great too, back in the day, with stuff like his one-shot boss challenge.

It's just striking, and a little worrying for traditional media I think, that we just don't have anywhere near the time to delve into these games at the same level. Not every gamer needs that level of depth in their content, but if I'm into a game at all, I want to go straight to the person who really knows what they're talking about.

As for non-gaming stuff, La Liga has a Youtube channel now, and is thus one of my regulars. It's finally easy to see some high quality highlights for Barca.

I've been doing some GameMaker stuff, and have found the tutorials of Rm2kdev (another Aussie) very useful.

Actually, going through my list I've realised how bare it is. How about you?

    Scott Manly, KSP!

      Flyyy Safe!

        Sometimes i give my Kerbals Scottish accents as they do things, and say "Hullo!"

          Did you guys notice how Mr Manley has been toning it down? In his recent trip back home, it's like his accent thickened... and the Ayes certainly had it. He was about a kerbalwidth away from a good "Stitch this, Jimmy!"

    Jackfrags

      Been watching Frankieonpcin1080p for ages and JackFrags occasionally, but Jack releases videos more regularly than Frankie.

    a bunch of random game & movie reviewers & some 90s anime channels that put up full movies, bad dubbing & all! :D

    I'm subscribed to stuff on youtube, but without an offline download option I can't really keep up with it all.

      That would be amazing!

        They let you download Play movies/tv shows, so why not extend that to youtube videos and then just make them self delete after 48 hours like the rentals do.

          you can do this with third party apps pretty easily. thats what i do with my Windows phone is just download a bunch of youtube videos over wifi so i can watch them on the train to work in the morning.

      Look up "4K Video Downloader"

        I know there are downloaders, but I want something in the Android youtube app itself.

          You can do this somehow. My cousin downloads a few gigs every night to watch throughout the day. I know this because one time his dad left his smartphone hotspot active and got a big bill.

          Not in the youtube app, but there is an app, I think it's called "tubemate". I haven't used it for a while, but from memory it's pretty good.

    The Gaming Lemon and TypicalGamer are the two gaming channels I follow. CVG is also alright sometimes.

    Mighty Car Mods is the best channel on the Tube though.

    Lots of World of Tanks stuff but I only really watch Foch/Quickybaby and Jingles' content
    World of Warships I can't go past iChase's vids.
    Racespot/Empty Box for my iRacing needs.

      Pretty much my subs list too, if you ad Rooster Teeth and their Lets Play channel and Funhaus.

    - Rooster Teeth/Achievement Hunter's various shows incl. Slow Mo Guys
    - Don Shipley's Phony Navy Seal of the Week (at least up until recently when he started his own pay site to prevent false DMCA takedowns from people he's exposed)
    - GIFs with Sound

    That's about it. I used to watch a few other channels but I don't really watch anything regularly anymore. In a lot of cases I remain subscribed in the hopes they might put up new content at some point.

    did you know gaming

      Oh yeah, me too.

      They're good for introducing other interesting channels too :-)

    TotalBiscuit - general games info and industry commentary.
    Jim Sterling - a good counterbalance to TB's political correctness.
    Yahtzee Croshaw - just recently started watching his Zero Punctuation stuff... I have a lot to catch up on.
    Riff Repeater - Rocksmith DLC previews, so I know what I'm getting into.
    Andrew JRT - Clueless Guardians is usually pretty hilarious.

      I mainlined Zero Punctuation when my wife & son were away.
      all this free game time & I spent it listening to someone whine about games XD

        I keep having to pause it every few minutes so I can recover enough to continue paying attention - I usually get about halfway through a video before I'm cacking myself too much to continue. XD

        I liked him initially but these days he just seems so forced and like he's trying too hard.
