Jontron

Recommended Posts

Were people really thinking that Starcade would be replacing regular JonTron episodes?  Like, I figured it was just a mini-event to coincide with the new Star Wars movie, similar to how the Nostalgia Critic has a Star Wars month, a Matrix month, etc.  Not sure where it was ever indicated that he would only do Star Wars things, and it's not like there's even enough Star Wars games to even keep a channel consistently running for more than a year unless he really takes his time.

 

No, not at all. I was just complaining about skits overall, not just JonTron.

I'm glad to see Jon's back on his feet making more videos, especially with the new addition of Starcade.

 

I'm not sure if anyone's brought this up but:

 

Isn't anyone here a bit curious as to what really happened with Game Grumps?

It's pretty easy to find out what really happened to Game Grumps through off-the-record statements. Not that it honestly matters because Grumps at this point has gone on for longer without Jon than it has with it, and Jon and Arin made amends recently.

They did? Was this on reddit?

The thing is, Jon and Arin never had a problem with each other. Polaris were apparently the ones being the problem because they wouldn't let Jon continue his show if he sighed the contact to be with them (he would have to stay on Game Grumps), but quite frankly Arin and Jon have stopped caring about it and still talk about each other, have fun at Magfest etc.Going back to his calling was the best thing for him so he could keep his own show without Polaris taking a share from it and be back home (he said pretty often how much he hated LA).

the amends had all the look of a PR stunt, but sure

I mean yeah.

I know for a fact that Arin is the one who's more interested in starting conversation back up with Jon.

That said I'm not exactly at the liberty to talk about what I know. It's not my place, all I can say is that it's fairly easy to suss out what "happened" if you know where to look.

But again, at this point it's a fairly irrelevant issue to have to dig back up. Jon and Arin have done a good job in forging their own paths without one another and personal indifferences aside, they really have no bearing on current progress of each other. It's all gossip beyond that point that has no influence on the way they work.

 

To put it bluntly they're at the point where they can respect the situation, which is a lot more than what you can say about Greg's disastrous fallout with Jirard over at TOVG and The Completionist.

They did? Was this on reddit?

They took photos together at MAGFest and have shown occasional visible Twitter conversation so basically yes.

Huh, surprisingly short. Must be doing these episodes on a game-by-game basis.

Oh, dammit, I had a feeling Polaris was the the main problem. Considering Jon was already connected to NormalBoots for JonTron, it would've seemed strange if Polaris let him work on a show for another Youtube network.

That weird flying skit with The Magic School Bus or whatever was really lame and almost modern Nostalgia Critic-tier. Everything involving the game itself was really funny, though. All in all, great episode as always.

Did he even touch on the gameplay in that episode?  I feel he spent a lot of time commenting on the cutscene but didn't show us any actual gameplay footage?  Did I miss it?

 

Also, R.I.P. in piece Arnold from the Magic School Bus.

Man, that's a damn good beat. Gonna be on my playlist for forever, now.

 

Jon also made a appearance in the new Songify the News, where he further demonstrates that he should really be some sort of fucking full-time singer by now.

Wow! Schmoyoho and Jontron. I though I'd never see that. You should watch some of their works. I think the most known one is the song "Winning" they made with Charlie Sheen's interview
