Not exactly anything major but we've all p-much grown with this channel so thought that alone justified this thread.
Sad for the content itself, but if the company goes away then, honestly, good riddance
Was anyone really watching Machinima by the end? I swear it just casually rolled off the cliff around 2013 and people didn't even care.
Has anything of worthwhile been lost video wise?
I don't think so.
Most of the big names from the early days of Machinima.com split with them years ago when they first started going to shit and reuploaded their stuff on their own channels.
Arby and the Chief is basically gone though unless someone else backed them up - But Machinima purged that series well before this point.
I never liked machinima, and every once in a while their logo would be watermarked on something that didn't belong to them.
Some god tier Super Best Friends videos from there early days.
I'm surprised it took this long for them to make an exit. I remember some years ago they stopped paying there partners.
They're nothing but thieves without honor among rogues
rest in piss
Uh, false alarm? I just checked the channel and it's still got a lot of videos.
Also a mirror of the Deus Ex recut with the Machinima watermark is pointless, there's a remade version of it in HD without the Machinima taint.
I don't see any outside of Liked videos.
WarnerMedia-Owned Machinima To Become Part Of AT&T’s Otter Media
Does this have anything to do with it?
Glad I downloaded all of that stuff a couple months ago. Really the only machinima content I ever watched.
AT&T is launching a streaming service this year.
oh my god lol its going to get WORSE
Jon CJG has every original ANTC (no LA series) episode backed up in his channel, he's also making a new season.
I just watched Counter-strike For Kids again earlier today.
"This video is unavailable."
Didn't accursed farms have content on Machinima, or did he get it all back?
Fuck, this isn't good.
Yeah there's some stuff that's going, but really only the really really good stuff like Counter Strike For Kids and Deus Ex: The Recut will. I know for a fact there's a ton of other Machinima series that weren't as good or well remembered but are going to go down and aren't going to be back, stuff like the series this song is from that I can't even remember the name of now that Machinima's dead.
Fuck the people that did this. Machinima as an artform has been struggling since the platform stopped giving a shit about making them, and now they just 95% of all the old shit as well.
AFAIK after Ross cut ties with Machinima he uploaded all of his old content on his own channel.
Nice! But looks like other videos wont be saved, looks like Machinima fisting our arseholes one last time.
Chuggaaconroy's Let's Play series from Mother 3 is now missing the climactic episode because of this. The description of the preceding video leads to a dead link.
Machinima is an odd pointin youtube history. On one hand, they are the eternal bean-counter, the middle-man in the agreement between content creators and youtube as a corporate entity. On the other hand, they were they only major gateway for youtube video game based content creators to make money in some capacity from their creations.
Bit nowadays? When monetizing a youtube channel is a button press away? What's the point? It's no wonder they collapsed. I'm surprised it didn't happen sooner.
At least all of those YouTubers I watch who did videos for Machinima saved their content on their own channels, like Brote, mans1ay3r, Ross Scott, Xanatos - probably missing someone, but you get the idea. As for Machinima itself, fuck them. Too many reasons to list why, as you're well aware.
Inside gaming is essentially funhaus and has been operating like that for years now(bless rooster teeth)
One thing I'll really miss now is BrySi's old stuff up there and og inside gaming (there's an archive of this BTW thank fuck.
This is actually a really sad fucking event but deserved because nobody wanted to deal with the blatant copy right and refusing to credit songs and artists as Laurence explained briefly from his side(Speculation but inside man).
Their History of videgames was a pers.fav. Granted, a few google searches would’ve gotten me to the same conclusion, but I still found them short, informative, yet sweet.
that was it though. Rest was SHIT
This shit got uplaoded 11 years ago
They deleted all of my stuff without notice. I really don't understand why but I lost one huge icebreaker for dating now.
Huh, I can only think of this one Halo 3 action video that was basically this big battle on High Ground with music, and Master Chief jumps in at the end... at least I think it was Machinima’s.
