I legitimately love that the left-wing slander campaign against "serial harasser" Nick Robinson has failed, and that his content continues to go viral.
Nick rules. Good content.
If by "slander campaign" you mean multiple women coming forward about how gross he is and him paying a price for his behavior, then yes.
Oh god...you wear a fedora don't you?
He flirted with legal aged women. What a monster!
tldw: Good Tetris player plays version of Tetris with random firework effects going off in the background, narrator REALLY tries to play it up for more than it is.
As far as I can tell it's a straight up clone/ripoff of Tetrips without the charm of being a free game full of heavy handed drug references and goofy techno MOD music made by demoscene kids in like 1996.
As far as the surrounding drama, I looked into it a bit and I don't see any reason to doubt that he's at least a bit of a sleaze (and has horrible douche hair), but the chats that were actually made public are completely benign, and the person who made them public followed it up with a rant about OMG HE's 26 THAT'S SO OLD that makes her seem pretty awful too, and the commenters defending him on Twitter all seem like edgelord fedora jackoffs, and the whole thing just reinforced my assumption that LIFESTYLE GAMERS are just generally the worst kind of people.
Also calling flow state, which is an actual psychological term with an actual objective meaning, "The Tetris Effect" is dumb as shit.
OTOH Positive Psychology is kind of wack too, so I guess call Flow whatever you want.

This video fuckin' sucks. It was in my recommended feed too and I skimmed it. It sucks!
Its merely a boring ad for a game thats tetris + some extraneous crap, (which in itself is such a pointless travesty as tetris is one of the most elegant computer games ever made.)
Also is the guy making the video involved with the development of the game? why is he doing this?
Not poetv material.
Yeah I forgot to rate it.
What was interesting about this to submit it? There are much better videos of expert Tetris play, and the other 90% of it is some boring tool trying to talk this up as a transcendent experience.
I don't mean to speak for the minority but the reasons I liked this video: I was struck by Jeff's obvious extreme skill and passion while also being essentially a cool normal dude. Second, I'm a huge Rez fan, and I'm excited about anything those guys do.
Never heard of the guy who actually made the video, or his weird women issues. I thought he was boring and talked too much.
