Dave Perry - GamesAnimal TV

So hes back ! Bit of controversy which is cool. What do people think ?

Think having an extra youtube channel to watch is good, obviously not much in the first one but looking forward to the main content episodes coming up. As for the 'controversy' at the end - jesus ! Bit OTT

yeah its 'old skool' sexism etc but i wasnt offended. Wasnt fussed by it at all, in the old days it might have been great but one quick google search later and i can find p0rn ! (Not like the old days finding some magazine in a wood in the 90's !). But some of the online comments about that in the show are just embarassing

Looking forward to seeing future episodes

No controversy here, he knew exactly what he was doing, as it's probably gained more PR than 'Dave Perry Returns' as a headline.

He hired some models, they got paid for the job they were doing, what's the problem?

Next episode, Mankini Men on Metroidvanias ;)

I only hope he's as well informed now as he was then. He was possibly the best games presenter there's been, along with Violet Berlin and Aleks Krotoski. Dominik Diamond might have been funny, but he didn't have the depth of knowledge and passion that Dave did. I can't think of anyone else who comes close to those.

I think he may have to do the Mario 64 thing just to get it out of the way though, that needs to be left in the past. One minor incident has been blown out of proportion.

Well, Eurogamer certainly took the bait. :lol:

Seriously, if people want to watch girls jiggling their boobs while playing games there are about four million streamers on Twitch to choose from. It's not big or clever, but it sells.

Meanwhile, I'm sure he's got some interesting insider stories to tell, so bring that part of it on.

Think it’s was a genius move. Because of the end ‘song’ he’s got tons of PR

But looking forward to the first proper show

It’s like Mary Whitehorse all over again reading some of the reactions
