Sorry about that, I guess I forgot how to BB code.

It's like Elwood found the most attractive woman he knows and was like "Hey, make a video for me about vidya games?"

The system is crowd sourced, so users can put whatever ratings they feel are justified.

Quote from: Wikipedia
The rating tool has received favorable reviews in the press, sometimes with mildly critical remarks. Some people vent more harsh criticism, saying the system is too susceptible to faulty results caused by targeted, malicious efforts of biased users. The company claims the system is extremely difficult to abuse and says that attempts usually get noticed.

So the YourWorld website may not have any issues at all (at least it's not on fire any more...), but the WoT users are certainly having a field day with it.

I was wondering if it was his wife. But you know, honestly I would have thought that producing a video with decent lighting and sound quality would have been totally beyond this guy's means.

Any journalism student can put a camera on a tripod and point it at a neutral wall color.

But how many journalism students would want to combine a dragon, bear, human, and elf?

Face it, the man's a genius.

I was actually thinking that maybe a young kid did that, and I was going to say, hey guys, you're being a bit harsh, it's horrible, but the art's pretty good for a middle school kid or something.

Then I noticed that the guy's Kickstarter blurb says he's a senior in college, and just... ow.

ETA:
I have a friend I've kind of lost contact with that I bet would think this is hilarious. He's a good guy, but he went to college for graphic design and it was one of those cases where he really, REALLY needed somebody to tell him that he's not cut out for it. Aside from being immature and unoriginal, his art was just... it never really progressed beyond the kind of stuff you'd imagine a semi-talented middle or high-schooler making. Which is sad, because he was really nice - he just never got the dose of reality he needed. But, he works for Apple now, and apparently loves it (heh), so I suppose it ended up okay.
