Question:

Why is it called Machinima ? What does the word actually mean? and why not just use the English word = to it ?

I'm pretty sure its just a mash up of the words machine and cinema.

What?... this is just... ugh god.

So is this supposed to be an actual article or what? Clicked the link and it takes you to Reddit with something about Nintendo and Youtube :/

EDIT:Oh wait up, it's in the comment section.

@MonkeyBootey

I could do I suppose, but seeing as I've read it in the comment section now there doesn't seem much point.

Or you could just click on "credit url" underneath "Read Full Story"

TechnicianTed, n4g approvers have previously flagged a number of my articles (similar in nature) for putting Pixel Enemy as a source. I'm a writer for PE. This time, to be on the safe side, I put reddit as source as that's where I got my info from, and credited Pixel Enemy. Still got flagged. Too late to edit it now, I'm afraid.

i'd say Yogscast did more for Minecraft than machinima.

then there are the independent youtubers, is that a word?
like CaptainSparklez, MinecraftWB, Wonderment, CupQuake.
even Tobuscus's videos were a a bigger factor in prompting me to buy the game than anything machinima put out.

don't get me wrong, they put out some good stuff, and they have no doubt helped the game a bit, but asking the game's creator for money for promoting it, is beyond ludicrous.

I don't know… the seananners let's play was pretty popular.
animegamingnerd  +   651d ago
seananners was the reason why i bought minecraft and even knew about in the first place but i can't speak for everyone
hazelamy  +   650d ago
i've never actually watched any of his videos, i should probably check them out some time.

i don't know why i've never watched them before, i've heard a lot of good things about his videos.
WillGuitarGuy  +   651d ago
iHasCupquake and Tobuscus are partnered with Machinima...so...
hazelamy  +   650d ago
they are?
i never knew that.

but still, asking for payment is just not cool.
rajman  +   651d ago
I regret joining them last year!!!

Whats a Machinima never heard of it?
LtSkittles  +   651d ago
Machinima is like Red Vs Blue, Then a company started up, took the name Machinima, and made it a place for people to put up other content. LPer's and Commentaries over games, have become popular on this channel.

Like others have stated there are better choices, like Rooster Teeth/Achievement Hunter, or like Yogscast.
e-p-ayeaH  +   651d ago
i started watching machinima because they had some pretty fun MGO/cod4 videos but that was pretty much it.

Yeah, I haven't watched a Machinima video in forever, I watch more let's plays.`

You know im kinda scared for the gaming Industry, When we get to this point where People like, Yogscast. Because im going to assume it was one of them. It's ignorant and selfish when the gamers think they need to get paid to play games? are you fucking kidding me? This has to be a joke, Because if it isnt its only going to get worse, Untill someday we get to the point of no return.

IMO Machinma is overraterd anyways? i mean people like Tobuscus get Money for singing about food and ruin Great game trailers with his anoyying voice. next thing you know game trailers will be by Tobuscus, Is that what you want?

On a side Note, Google should have never let them become this big, Youtube was never about making money it was about shareing your Opinons with others, and coming together as something everyone can share, Guess that cant happen either, Point being google needs to stop machinmas NOW, before its to late.
