What’s up everybody, I’m MattyG and this is the Kinda Funny Community Thread. This is a thread for Kinda Funny
There's a lot to Kinda Funny though, so let's unpack it a bit for the uninitated.
What exactly is Kinda Funny?
Kinda Funny is a Youtube channel run by five close friends where they discuss news, games, politics, wings, sex, you name it (well, four of them do. The fifth one stands behind the camera and occasionally bumps it). There’s something for everyone!
Who are these friends?
Greg Miller - @GameOverGreggy - The Host
Colin Moriarty - @notaxation - The Pride of Long Island
Nick Scarpino - @Nick_Scarpino - The Producer/Seducer
Tim Gettys - @TimGettys - The Pure One
Kevin - @KindaFunnyKevin - ?
They seem like pretty cool dudes! So how many shows do they have?
Quite a few actually!
The GameOverGreggy Show: On the GameOverGreggy Show, the four friends gather around the table and each bring one topic with them. One by one, they discuss their topic, often going off the rails and ending up discussing something not related to the original topic in any way. It’s great.
A Conversation With Colin: One of the first shows the guys started, this one is exactly what it sounds like - a conversation (with Colin, of course). Sometimes Colin says crazy stuff, so every week, Greg reaches into the random topic pile, pulls one out, tosses it at him, and they talk it out for our enjoyment.
Oreo Oration: Do you like Oreos? Good, Greg does too. Oreo Oration is like a video game review, but for Oreos, complete with twist tests, dunk tests, McElroy Moments, and maybe some snide comments on the side. Sometimes Greg even loses his mind.
Kinda Funny Reacts: Sometimes something big happens and you just have to hear what the guys think of it. Good news, Kinda Funny Reacts gives you exactly that! So when Fox finally gives the X-Men rights back to Marvel, or Half-Life 3 pulls a Beyoncé, or Hell freezes over, you know where to go!
Kinda Funny Unboxings: Ever wanted to buy a $900 replica scythe based on Death’s from Darksiders 2, but don’t have $900 to just spend all willy-nilly on a replica scyth? Well with this show, you can purchase vicariously through the guys!
Follow the Liter: Master Bartender Erick Castro walks us through making some of the best craft cocktails out there, so you can make them for yourself! You're never going to get an orange peel twist as perfect as his though, so don't even bother trying.
The Kinda Funny Gamescast: It’s not all just random topics and tangents though! In the Gamescast, the guys return to their roots to discuss anything and everything relating to the industry. Think of it as the GameOverGreggy Show, but with video games!
Kinda Funny Plays: For 15 minutes a day, you can watch the guys play all kinds of different games. From Smash Bros to #IDARB to Tiny Toon Adventures, they play it all!
Greg and Colin Live: This one's a little different. Instead of doing a pre-recorded show on Youtube, Greg and Colin Live is a daily show on Twitch where the guys are chillin' out, maxin, relaxin' all cool, and talking about... well, stuff! Tune in at 11 AM PST Monday through Friday!
Other Twitch stuff: Greg and Colin Live isn't the only thing the guys do on Twitch though! Sometimes they stream games, drunkenly talk about Spider-Man, or have MegaRan perform!
This all sounds great, but where can I see this stuff?
You can watch on their Youtube Channels, Kinda Funny and Kinda Funny Games, but if you support the guys on either of their Patreon pages you can get episodes early and maybe even some exclusive content! Also, be sure to follow the guys on Twitter at the handles posted above, and @KindaFunnyVids.
Cool! Now, are there any rules I have to follow in this thread?
There's currently only two rules that we ask you follow;
1) don't come in here and badmouth anybody. Not the Kinda Funny guys, not other Gaffers, not Willem Dafoe, nobody. We're all friends here, and this thread is meant to be a place for friends to have fun.
And 2) if you back the Patreon page and get episodes early, please put any discussion in spoiler tags as some people may want to watch the content without prior knowledge of it.
And what if I want to play some games with other Kinda Funny Community members? Will we all ever play games with each other?
Absolutely! I want to eventually get the Kinda Funny Community Thread to a point where discussion is always happening, where everyone knows each other, and where we all play games with each other. Since we're starting out kinda small, this may take some time, but I think it can be done. Until then, I'll be compiling the info of anyone who wants to be involved in a Google Spreadsheet to make it easier for you guys to get in touch with each other, plan gaming sessions, whatever. Once we get enough people, however, I'd like to start planning larger, community-wide multiplayer sessions. Can you imagine a GTA Online lobby full of Kinda Funny Community members?!
Don't see your name in the spreadsheet? PM me your info or post it in the thread! Be sure to use this format (to make it easier when transferring to the spreadsheet):
Platforms- New WhateverPlatformsYouHave 4 One GTX 9000 Vita XL
Steam- SampleID (link to your Steam Community Profile)
So have fun, everyone! Get to discussing, watching, connecting, and above all... BEYOND!
NOTE: This is just a base OP, I plan on expanding upon it soon. I also plan to make a new post in the thread every day (separate from my conversations with you guys!) with links to the videos of the day, just in case you guys forget. Keep an eye out for updates, and if you have any suggestions feel free to leave them in here, Tweet me @MattyG_Gaf, or PM them to me!
