Hey Tommy, you really ought to consider doing Pat and Ian for defamation. 

Meh, like thousands of Youtubers they are just talking crap about an unreleased console, that kind of thing is endless. Personally I cannot stand Pat and Ian and I think they are a joke but they are entitled to their opinion however wrong or misguided it is. Engaging them further just gives them what they crave, would be a waste of time, effort, resources that would be much better used toward getting the system out and simply proving them wrong. They would LOVE attention like that, far better to just ignore them and just let them and their sheep fans keep doing their own little circle jerk until they are proven wrong. Think about it, Tommy brings on a defamation case, Pat and Ian cry foul and set up a fund for all their sheep fans to cover the cost of their defense and it goes back and forth wasting time money resources on both sides all the while they revel in the attention when all one really needs to do is ignore them and prove them for the idiots they are, that would be a far better outcome.

@BigDumer This post is the funniest thing I've read in a long time!  And even though I'm half asleep (and should really go to bed) and I had to think and process it...And it's from 3 days ago, and I'm 3 pages back...You win the Internet as far as I'm concerned.

 

It's gonna be hard to sleep when I keep laughing myself back into waking consciousness...

Haha, thanks!  I also wonder where the Mom is looking in that photo.  Because it's not at the TV screen and it's not at her husband....

Tommy,

 

just an idea, if a running man statue that also doubles as extra storage for the console would be great. 
 

not sure if this would be feasible but when utilizing the storage it would be cool if the running man was running.

It's getting really hard to keep up with all of these YouTube podcast as they are coming faster than I can consume. I have started to strip them from YouTube and download them to my "podcast" phone so I can listen to them on the road. Makes for great travel entertainment. Also I want to say thanks to all who provide them as I am sure they take a lot more time to plan, record, edit and post than we realize. Thanks guys (and gals). :waving:

 

Oh, and a special thank you to Tommy for all the time he dedicates to YouTube interviews. It's amazing how I can hear him discuss the same things over and over again in different interviews but it always seems fresh, entertaining, exciting and fun! His passion just oozes out of my speakers. 🔊

I ise a app called floating tube. You just start a YouTube video the share it to the floating tube app and then shut the screen off to your phone.  I do this while working.

You're right.

 

Intellivision will release its trailers, its announcements, its digital engagements as it sees fit.  Pat will work in his comments as he likes.  

 

Tommy will no doubt respond in kind, but now is about the time he said Intellivision would be moving into its next awareness phase - some of which might be delayed if the console gets pushed back, but I'm sure there's enough prep work to do for announcements, and less free time to trade jabs with a barking sideshow act.  

 

Is it defamation?  Yeah, it'd pass the legal standard in several states for review if damages could be shown.  May not prosecute, much less likely a win, but they could build if that’s where they wanted to spend resources.  "Imputing that an individual committed a crime". "Imputing that a person is unable or lacks the integrity to perform one's employment duties".. seems familiar.  Maybe more prudent to approach YouTube and its community standards, but even there it’s grey.  But as you state, it'd be a PR headache, an uphill battle and suddenly make Pat the martyr.  Some of you reading this when you come up for air from the YouTube comments may have got a little excited - whoa there, put some ice on it, I don't see that happening.

 

This comes out.  In three months, four, six or eight.  Don't know the timeline with the world upside down, not going to pretend I do.  But when it does, you get get a few hundred let's play videos, people encouraged to film fun moments.  Then there are the communities who have an interest in playing games (and not just congealing for the odd conspiracy theory).  They either have fun with the system and talk about it, or they don't.  If they don't, well, the Amico doesn't have much of a lifespan.  But if they do, if some amount of people are enjoying themselves and promoting this little system, what's the counterargument?  That the system sucks?  The people playing it and loving it are a video suggestion down.  No amount of spam videos are burying that.  That was the narrative with the Switch - the system sucks, it has no games - but people were playing it, having fun, sharing their experience and word of mouth plus advertising set it off.  This ain't the Switch, but it ain't exactly the "Super Footbath" - it'll sell enough to generate it's own narrative on its own terms, and Pat and Ian's weekly narrative.. kinda fizzles away.  I don't see big YouTubers jumping on board.  I don't see more than a modest increase in views or likes per video - they're appeasing that segment of their crowd, and that's that.  An irritant, a thorn in the side, not exactly the baseball bat to the knee.  

 

Intellivision can move on, Tommy will move on (though likely slap back every few insults).. but get to the premieres, to the digital events, to launch, and leave Pat and Ian (and the traveling flea circus) behind.

Tommy said it will shipped a couple days after the FE. That was one of the bonus for the Founders Edition.

Hey guys, I have an Apple 6 plus with iOS 12.4.7 updating now. I tried a couple NFC App downloads. One said my phone didn't have what was needed period (Simply NFC) and another, the 2nd one listed, said I needed at least 13.0. Is there any AFC I can download and use with 12.4.7 to enter the sweepstakes or whatever it's called? 

 

Or was I entered simply by watching the video...probably not, since I assume that's what my RFID cards are for. Must be another way to enter though.

You are already entered if you made a purchase (you should have received an email about how many entries you have). The NFC thing is just for fun to see the sneak preview of the Cloudy Mountain trailer - but is released on YouTube so really no need to do it unless you just want to.

Okay. Thanks. I placed one order for two t-shirts and got one golden ticket. Then e-mailed for a second, because I though I should get two tickets. So, they sent me a second ticket, but the e-mail says I have one entry. Is it one entry per item or per order...thanks!

Email them back and ask for a second entry. The t-shirts were, I believe, per item.

Can I just do a "non-purchase" entry by e-mail still?

I believe the entry period is over, so no. But you are owed a second entry based on having 2 golden tickets.

 

(But I could be wrong about the non-purchase entry... doesn't hurt to try.)

Okay. I e-mailed the kevinS guy mentioned 15 pages back or so about a second entry. Thanks.

Per order I believe.

I purchased 5 items total in 2 separate orders so I received 2 tickets. 👍

Based on the original intellishirt email, it was per t-shirt. I don't know about subsequent merchandise purchases beyond the intellishirt though, those might be different.
