David Parrish, frustrated by the protracted legal battle over the California video game law, has jumped into the YouTube debate fray with this video...

Hahaha, wow. I have a clone.

If anyone has any doubts, and actually cares, feel free to send the YouTube account this video is hosted on (username is wizardmon5), and I will let you know, via that, that it's me.

*gasp!* There's two of them!

I don't know who the guy above me is, but this is the real David Parrish here. Thanks for noticing me, GP, and thanks to those who agreed with me here in the compliments. And thanks to the guy pretending to be me...I'm flattered.

Excellent question. Keep them coming!

Hey, would you look at that, I made it onto GamePolitics. Nifty.

Also, as someone said, that 30-second time limit is a bit irritating. My original take was one minute and twenty seconds, in which I quoted the judge (where he said the evidence against video games was lacking), but I had to cut that, among other things, out of the final take.

In any case, thanks for whatever compliments I recieved here.

And if anyone thinks I should revise the video (keeping in mind I only have thirty seconds), let me know and I'd be happy to re-submit an altered version. I'll check back here for replies.

@Jack

I only have one thing to say about that:

DO IT.

Nice one Jack,

I want to hear a question from GamerDad, and i want to see him wear a tie!

Thank you Unruly. I'll have to do more research. I want the biggest number I can get to show enough significance.


On a side note heres the question I plan to ask....

Hi my name is (to be revealed) and I work in the field of Subtance Abuse Recovery.

And my name is (to be reavealed) , I'm a substitue teacher with a Bachelor's Degree in Psychology. We both reside in (to be revealed) , CA.

Many unnesscery video game bills across America have been shot down by the judcial system. So far America's tax payers have dished out $(millions) in legal fees for bills deemed unconstitutional. If elected President what will you do to prevent such trivial events in Judcial system from occuring?

That's actually an excellent question, and it applies to any frivolous bill that wouldn't survive it's day in court.

Of course I expect an equally frivolous answer about bipartisanship or "working smarter" or something, but that's normal.

@Jack

I just did a quick addition of what costs I could find through a rather un-thorough search of the GP archives, and it totals around $1.3million.

The breakdown is as follows -
Illinois - c. $1m for both industry reimbursement and state legal fees
Michigan - $182,349 in industry reimbursement alone
Louisiana - $92,000 in industry reimbursement alone

And that's without the California law getting tacked on there, and with two of those states just showing the reimbursement fees and not their own. I'd assume that the state legal fees would follow the Illinois example and be right around equal to the industry costs, so its probably closer to $1.5-1.6m without Cali in the mix.

This is almost dead-on...

It needs bit of refinement. PHOENIXZERO above said it already, change time to tax payer dollars, and like Jack above asked, find out the exact dollar amount or get a really good estimate.

Are you allowed to submit more than one or revise the one you've submitted?

@ PHOENIXZERO


Do you know the total exactly we've wasted in America? I'm just curious because I'm considering making a video as well.

I didn't know Nebraska had a norfolk

@Raum
"Turtle Jumped On At Zoo, Mario To Blame"

I love that headline. :)

I also agree. We need a second page, as there are going to be a lot of submissions. You can't deny the power of the free t-shirt. ;)

Instead of the wasting time thing, it would have probably been better to mention the wasting of millions of tax payer dollars. Still, much better than the other ones, shame they limit people to 30 seconds since it's hard to ask a real, good question with as many facets as this issue has without at least being able to go into some detail, if just so politicians have a harder time spinning it.

Unfortunately, I don't see CNN taking any of these questions as they're likely to go with some bad/stupid softball questions like they did for the democrats or probably worse since there's such "love" for Republicans outside Fox News the stupidity of the questions asked in previous Q&As.

I can't bring myself to call these or any of these things "debates" seeing as candidates not only get a lot of time to prepare, they don't even really debate anything.

No offense intended GP, but we've gotten 5 videos for candidates up on the front page already, are we going to be seeing more as the next few months go by? Shouldn't we give them their own seperate page and leave the front page forstuff like; 'In UAE, GTA San Andreas Survives Despite Government Ban', 'California 2005 Video Game Law Ruled Unconstitutional' or 'Turtle Jumped On At Zoo, Mario To Blame'?

nice simple and too the point,very unzippish :P

Kick-ass video, in my opinion.

As a side-note, I have the poster right behind his head. Matrix Reloaded, great movie, best car scene in history ever.

Anyone ever use this email account program before? Just curious, I'm looking for software that will mass create email accounts.

MattsworknameI feel ups should have a hard line expiration date. if a company doesn't use them for ten years they have to put it on the market or make it open source05/27/2015 - 11:34pm
MechaCrashPride does play a factor. If you sell an IP to someone, and they make a ton of money off it, it makes you look like a tool: why didn't YOU make that money? Better to sit on it than be embarassed that way.05/27/2015 - 10:58pm
ZippyDSMleeAS far as I understand it the suits think sitting on a an IP till the time is right is more profitable than tradeing it around.....hevean forbit soemone use soemthing to make money with....05/27/2015 - 9:58pm
Andrew EisenOh, there's also the Facebook page.05/27/2015 - 4:29pm
hidannikOkay :( Guess I'll just have to YouTube it when I've caught up on all the other podcasts.05/27/2015 - 4:13pm
Andrew EisenI honestly don't know. The show is on my YouTube channel and we promote it here on the site every week.05/27/2015 - 4:11pm
hidannikIs there nothing a podcast app can key on?\05/27/2015 - 4:09pm
Andrew EisenYeah, we lost Libsyn quite some time ago. As such, no RSS or iTunes. We're working on finding a new (and cost effective) home but it's been really slow going.05/27/2015 - 4:07pm
hidannikThe last one on that feed was Feb 905/27/2015 - 4:05pm
hidannikThe feed is at superpac.libsyn.com05/27/2015 - 4:05pm
hidannikI ask because it hasn't shown up in my PocketCasts feed in a while. (I'm currently a month behind)05/27/2015 - 4:02pm
E. Zachary KnightAE, Loved your mom as the guest on your 30 Days of Netflix series. She is one interesting lady.05/27/2015 - 3:47pm
E. Zachary Knighthidannik, If you mean on iTunes, we are working to get it back up there soon. Otherwise, the show must go on. We record live every Saturday at 8pm Central05/27/2015 - 3:47pm
Andrew Eisenhidannik - The podcast will continue this weekend and every weekend after for the foreseeable future. What makes you ask?05/27/2015 - 3:29pm
Matthew WilsonI say no it isnt, but it depends on the reason for not selling it. were the pressured to not sell it. aka target au, or did they chose not to on their own aka gog with hatred.05/27/2015 - 3:28pm
hidannikIs there no more podcast?05/27/2015 - 3:26pm
E. Zachary KnightHere is another thought exercise. How would you feel if game developers traded in IP? http://gamasutra.com/blogs/JorgeMunoz/20150520/243471/Why_dont_developers_buysell_intellectual_property_much_like_other_assets.php05/27/2015 - 3:24pm
