Machinima have become insane latley....you know Ross Scott the guy who did the Civil Protection and Freemans Mind stuff on their...he had to leave because of their ridiculous contracts with them.

They became to big for there own good and set partnerships with people witch is less money they should go get same good commentators and hire them for work like the yogscast and achievement hunter.

Question:

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

CraigUK1344d ago

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

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.

MonkeyNinja1345d ago

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.

animegamingnerd1344d ago

seananners was the reason why i bought minecraft and even knew about in the first place but i can't speak for everyone

hazelamy1344d 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.

WillGuitarGuy1344d ago

iHasCupquake and Tobuscus are partnered with Machinima...so...

hazelamy1344d ago

they are?
i never knew that.

but still, asking for payment is just not cool.

rajman1345d ago

I regret joining them last year!!!
