  • 06/02/17--12:26: Mike Matei
  • About

    Mike Matei serves as the executive producer for CinemaMassarce, the website of The Angry Video Game Nerd, and helps write, edit, and star in the channel’s videos. He has grown into a somewhat infamous figure online for his low-quality sketches and interactions with fans.

    History

    Matei started Cinemamassacre’s YouTube channel in 2006,[1] where it was originally called “JamesNintendoNerd.” After assisting with and starring in several AVGN videos, Matei began to make his own content for the channel. On January 24th, 2011, he uploaded his first solo video for Cinemamassacre, “How to Jump Over the Flagpole on stage 1-1 in Super Mario Bros,” gaining over 1.2 million views (shown below). In 2015, he began livestreaming video games and uploading the videos to YouTube.[2]

    Brown Bricks

    On May 11th, 2012, Matei uploaded “Minecraft with Gadget,” a video in which he and an animated version of Inspector Gadget, voiced by Matei, reviewed the IOS port of Minecraft. In the video, Inspector Gadget has trouble pronouncing the name of the game, eventually calling it “Minecrap.” He repeated the name several times during the video, eventually repeating “I love to build brown bricks with mine crap.” This spawned the Brown Bricks meme. Due to the negative response to the video, it was taken down (Mirror shown below). The video was quickly mocked and parodied online shortly after its release, and Matei has worked to delete all reuploads of the video.



    In late 2016 and early 2017, multiple renditions of the infamous video started appearing on YouTube. The meme’s sudden resurgence in popularity may be due to it’s frequent use in media surrounding Iris animator Chris O’Neil (Oney) who can often be heard quoting or referencing it. It became a popular meme amongst of the channel’s fans. In May of 2017, Siivagunner began referencing the clip in their videos. On May 14th, they uploaded “Main Theme – Inspector Gadget: Mad Robots Invasion,” gaining over 19,000 views (shown below, left). On May 17th, they uploaded a parody of the Angry Video Game Nerd intro using the clip (shown below, right).



    Mike Matei Has a Huge Dick

    In late 2014, a persistent rumor started appearing in comments on Cinemamassacre videos that Matei has a large penis. Fans gleaned as much from pictures of Matei where the bulge in his pants appears quite large (examples shown below). One of the earlier known references to the size of Matei’s penis comes from a Tumblr[4] post dated September 22nd, 2014.



    The rumor was addressed in a thread on /r/OutOfTheLoop[3] on December 12th, 2014 and has been covered in TV Tropes[2] and Encyclopedia Dramatica[5] in their pages on Matei. In late 2015, Matei tweeted out a picture of his penis next to measuring tape to answer a question to someone asking how large his dick was. He said “10 inches.” The picture has since been deleted but a screenshot of the tweet was posted to /tv/ on November 5th, 2015.[7]

    /r/CinemaMassacre Drama

    Matei is a moderator at /r/CinemaMassacre. On May 30th, 2017, he made a post titled “Shedding Some Light”[8] about his moderating practices, which others in the subreddit took issue with, after conversations between moderators about Matei were leaked to the subreddit. Matei was known for banning anyone who made reference to the Brown Bricks video or referencing his penis, and he attempted to explain this in his post. Other moderators of the subreddit were angered by this, Mattophobia,[6] recommended the removal of Matei from the channel altogether for his unapologetic and harsh moderating policies. The entire fiasco was covered by two /r/OutOfTheLoop[9][10] posts and a post on /r/SubredditDrama.[11]

    Criticism

    Matei has grown infamous for his poor comedy and alleged poor character. During their playthrough of Sonic ’06, Game Grumps went on an extended riff about Matei’s simple style of comedy (shown below).



    Matei has also been criticized for being unfunny and arrogant by Encyclopedia Dramatica.[5] Commenters on /r/Cinemamassacre have also spoken negatively about Matei’s character. In response to his “Shedding Some Light” post, user digitaldebaser wrote of Matei, “He was rude, he was degrading, and he made me question if James was anything like him. It hurt as a fan.”

  • About

    Far Cry is a series of first person shooter video games known for the expansive, open world environments that allow for more interactive gameplay.

    History

    Released on March 23rd, 2004 for PC, the original Far Cry followed ex Special Forces operator named Jack Carver in search of a missing journalist he was escorting across a mysterious set of islands. The game sold more than 730,000 copies within four months of release and led to five spin-offs, including Far Cry Instincts (2005), Far Cry Instincts: Evolution (2006), Far Cry Instincts: Predator (2006), Far Cry Vengance (2006), and Paradise Lost(2007).[1]

    Ubisoft released Far Cry 2 on October 23rd, 2008 without the help of the original game’s developer, Crytek.[2] The game took place in Central Africa with a goal of assassinating a ruthless arms dealer.

    Four years later, Far Cry 3 was released on November 29th, 2012. The game followed several American tourists besieged by pirates in the pacific. A spin-off, Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon followed the game on April 30th, 2013.

    Far Cry 4 was released on November 18th, 2014 and takes place in fictional Himalayan country, allowing players to explore the mountains, forests, and villages of the region.

    Far Cry 5

    On May 26th, 2017, Ubisoft announced Far Cry 5, which, for the first time, brought players to America. Set in Hope County, Montana, the game pits players in a violent war against a cult who seeks to take over the area.[4] The game is set for a released date of February 27th, 2018.

    That day, Ubisoft released the first trailer for the game. WIthin 12 hours, the video (shown below) has been viewed 440,000. The trailer was also posted to the subreddits /r/gaming,[5] /r/pcgaming and /r/xboxone,[7] where it received more than 1,000 points each, respectively, in the first 12 hours.



    The initial announcement also included several character videos, detailing some of the members of the resistance of Hope County. The trailer for the character Nick Rye (shown below, left) received more than 111,000 views in under 12 hours. The trailer for Pastor Jerome Jeffries (shown below, right) received more than 118,000 views in under 12 hours.



    Online Presence

    As of May 2017, the official Far Cry Facebook[16] page currently has more than 2.6 million likes and 2.6 million followers and the official Twitter account, @farcrygame,[17] has more than 294,000 followers.

    Reception

    The main entries in the series have generally fared well with critics and players. The first Far Cry game scored 89% on Metacritic,[3] while its successors have generally scored in that range, between 85% and 90%.

    Far Cry 5 Antagonist

    On May 26th, 2017, people discussed the game’s new locale and villains, commenting that this would be the first time a Far Cry game took place in America. Some on Twitter discussed Ubisoft’s decision to make rural Americans the antagonist in the game. That day, Twitter user @Spacekatgal[8] wrote, “I played and enjoyed Far Cry when it had unsettling right-wing themes, and I’ll play this one too. But, wow, they really went there.” Another user, @patrickklepek[9] tweeted, “I don’t know anything about Far Cry 5, but a game about white identity and extreme nationalism would be awfully appropriate in 2017.”



    Twitter published a Moments page[11] to document the reaction to the announcement. Several news outlets covered the announcement as well, including Polygon,[10] Kotaku,[12] Forbes[13] and more

    That day, Redditor wolfram[14] posted a photo of himself made to look like the antagonist from Far Cry 5 in the thread “I didn’t realize I was cast as the villain for Far Cry 5.” The post (shown below) received more than 50,000 points (60% upvoted) and 2,200 comments.



    White Genocide Controversy

    That day, more reactions to the trailer, particularly its use of a white, Christian cult as the antagonist, caused some online to call the game a “white genocide simulator.” An anonymous 4chan user created the thread “Far Cry ‘White Genocide Simulator 5’” and wrote “From a purely business standpoint, I don’t understand what their strategy is here. In my experience most gamers are white and seem to be more right-leaning than left. How does alienating the majority of their prospective buyer base seem like a good idea? Do they honestly think this will sell well, or are they just doing it anyway because it’s ‘the right narrative?’”[18] The thread received more than 575 replies before archiving.

    Since the trailer’s release, an online petition on the website Change.org[19] started, asking Ubisoft to “Cancel Far Cry 5.” The author of the petition writes, “Enough is enough UbiSoft. We’ve sat through your multicultural lectures and your preachy games aimed at degenerates and miscegenators. We’ve tolerated it in the name of gameplay design and innovation. But no more! Far Cry 5 is an insult to your fanbase, the Americans who make up the majority of your customers, and it’s time you woke up to that fact. Change this, or cancel it.” As of May 30th, the petition has more than 680 signatures, roughly 300 short of its goal.

    However, many have wondered if this is a real controversy or an example of Poe’s Law, in which the controversy itself is a satire. Redditor FindMeTheTruth[20] posted about the petition in the /r/KotakuInAction subreddit under the thread “SJW’s have been faking outrage by ‘white supremacists’, possibly Ubisoft themselves as Ghostbusters tier marketing, for the upcoming Far Cry game. Problem is that they forgot to word things so it doesn’t sound like them (includes blaming Gamergate for attacking gamers).” The post received more than 1,000 points (77% upvoted) and 150 comments.

    Twitter users have also said that they were skeptical as to whether this was an actual outrage or not.



    Fandom

    On August 22nd, 2016, the /r/farcry[15] subreddit launched. In nine months, it has gained more than 12,800 subscribers.
