I don't blame some YouTubers for embellishing their titles or thumbnails a bit. If there's a rumor at least make it look like such. I think Prime and Spawn Wave arent that bad at this. RGT has the overdramatic thumbnails, but I've always liked his gaming recommendations and eShop sale vids. SwitchForce though, yeah... Zach seems like a cool dude but the "Bad news for Nintendo Switch" titles are bad.

The thumbnails too, if you go to the channel, I bet he's still using random fan-made images of custom switch menus in his thumbnails along with "amazing new update!" or something to that effect.

@Joeynator3000 Arlo is great, makes very good Reviews, and takes his time.

Switch Force is one of the worst channels I've ever seen focus on Nintendo news. I absolutely despise the clickbait thumbnails and titles. I hate the guy's content, and he's just the embodiment of everything that's wrong with Nintendo youtubers as of late. SwitchForce was good for about the first year of the system's life, when he still had the full friend circle, but no wonder why the friend circle ended up breaking apart, given the dude is obnoxious as hell.

There were multiple times where the guy put in his thumbnails and video titles that something was 100% happening for sure, when it wasn't the case at all, and it was all baseless speculation using hype to back it up.

The only other Nintendo youtubers I have a huge dislike for are Obe1plays and Beatemups. Obe1 is literally just a hype channel, getting hyped over everything Nintendo announces, despite it either being good or bad.. and then Beatemups is a literal joke.

@Snatcher I just love that he makes me laugh sometimes, like that vacuum cleaner bit caught me off guard, I loved it. xD

@Joeynator3000 He knows how to add jokes at the right times, I would be lying if I said It didn't catch me off guard as well.

@VoidofLight I did like beatemups for a wile, But then the more and more I watched his stuff, its just idk, It felt like he didn't really make his own mind about stuff and just hopped on whatever people were hating or liking at the time. haven't watched him in a wile so.

@Snatcher I just know the guy kept saying Xenoblade 2 was bad, and didn't even get past the first chapter of the game. He tried to prove to people that he had loads of hours in the game, which he did, but he was still at the very beginning so something wasn't adding up.

@VoidofLight I'm pretty 50/50 on the dude, Some stuff I like, some stuff I hate.

@VoidofLight Also, I need to play the xenoblade Series, I really need to do that.

@Snatcher The original one is really great. Can't really speak on X, since I never played it all the way through, and 2 is alright, but it has some hiccups story-wise.

@VoidofLight They sound like really good games.

First game was alright, second game...I'll be honest...I didn't get far.

Look, I like fanservice in games, I'm a perv. But some games really don't need it...and...I was sick of seeing Pyra's giant boobs in my face all the time. lol Yeah, that was the main reason I didn't get far...also annoyed that she got in Smash as well. xD

As for X, it's not bad, but since it was a true open world game, I did lose interest half-way through the game. :c

@Joeynator3000 Pyra was the entire reason I played the game in handheld mode. But yeah, I'm not a big fan of how tropey 2 is in comparison to the original, and how 2 often has hard to read tones.

(Insert creative or cool phrase here.)

Snatcher

@VoidofLight Pyra is kinda the reason I want to play 2, But I think I will go with one 1st since its more story driven it sounds. (Lmao family members around?)

I think fanservice is fine but you need to know when to do it, so if its just Like Fanservice in a very important moment then I can see why it would get annoying.

@Snatcher 1 and 2 are both story-driven, it's just 2 is more tropey until the end, and the tone shift can be jarring at some moments. I'd play 1`before 2 though, given it was the initial order of release.
