Counter Monkey – What’s an Anti-Paladin?

Ahhhh, god fucking damn it, why the hell does he keep doing these. I literally have no clue what the hell he's talking about, it's like totally random, I bet you he's making this up all on the spot after taking a look at the book. Well, that's what you would think if you couldn't make sense of Spoony's rambling. But if you are insane like me, then you'd understand that Spoony does know what he's talking about. Wut? What insanity is this? Complementing Noah the Jew himself? Yes, but whatever it's just another Counter Monkey video and you know what to expect based on the title of the video. Watch or don't watch, and be sure to make sure Spoony hears all your problems on his Twitter or his Patreon account. Whatever, I'm out of here, later.

  1. its a load of nonsense as well. I dont know that much about d&d but even in baldurs gate there are paladins of different orders, some have pretty radical views that make em evil depending on what your point of view is.
    and yeah the death knight is basically the anti paladin anyways

    1. "I dont know that much about d&d "

      There's your problem. Because he's not talking about Baldur's Gate or any other Bioware crap :P

  3. Erm... so Spoony has been recently re-uploading some of his older stuff that either got taken down or used to be on blip and I get all that. But why the fuck is he re-uploading what's already on his channel? Example:

    Ultima 9: Ascension (Finale): https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ym6PBz7tKO4
    Ultima 9: Ascension (Part 3): https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RoSNjYjy4Ek

    I see no reason for this upload but to milk views out of things he did years ago. It's just baffling to me, because Spoony is a smart guy and I'm sure he would check what videos are already on the page and which aren't.

  4. It's nearly a month since Spoony did this. i wonder if he's finally dead.

    1. I certainly hope not. The guy's got talent, the problem is that he hasn't seemed to have pushed the limits of his creativity for a good long time. His last movie review? February. And I honestly get the sense that after July last year, he just started to lose the motivation to post content, but felt he absolutely had to in order to justify the amount of money he was getting from Patreon. And that money has been dying down after the long stretch of Wrestle Wrestle (which lost its appeal when he seemed in legitimate pain just watching Raw back in December of last year) and Counter Monkey (which became rambly to the point that it feels like he's filling up time).

      Considering how much he talks on Twitter, the fact that he turned off any sort of discussion on his own site, and how little he actually says, I wouldn't be surprised if he's trying to hide even more personal problems. And that is just making his audience more antsy, which is not improving things in the least.

    2. he has no personal problems, anyone falling for those excuses is retarded. Him and april are buying all sorts of crap and laughing behind your back.

    3. Sure, it's certainly possible he's got no current problems and is just getting complacent, but he's got a history of having problems. A heart condition that makes caffeine potentially lethal, specifically. But even at my most forgiving, going 'this' long without much if any content that would require research or thought put into it is a little much.

      Delete
    4. So you actually believe all the bullshit he tells you ok xd
      He doesnt have a heart condition, he isnt bipolar, he probably doesnt even use meds besides the ones his shrink prescribe

      Delete
    5. You do realize that if he has a shrink that prescribes medication, that means he has problems of some kind, right? And I'm not saying his previously established problems are what's causing this long delay in material. I'm mostly just hoping, really, since that would imply that when he gets healthier his content will go back to its previous quality. If not, then it's a damn shame that one of the best video reviewers on the net self-destructed like this.

    6. nope shrinks will prescribe anyone who visits some kind of drugs, do your research. Half the psychological terms like adhd, bipolar, autism change every year while its just interference from poison in the water and food and radio / wifi frequencies messing us up. Its all a scam and spoony is an idiot for falling for it just so he can use it as an excuse.

      Delete
    7. I wish he would either just quit or get going again. If his personal problems are stopping him from making new content, then he should probably wrap it up and get a job where he leaves the house and has contact with other people and sunlight. Would probably do him some good.

      Delete
    8. Agreed. Either quit video reviews as a profession and get out of the house or pull himself together and start pumping out content with some thought behind it. As is, it feels like he's been half-assing it for far too long, and frankly seeing 'less' content would be less painful than seeing so much of this kind of content.

  5. Spoony may have problems, but he and April make themselves feel better spending all the money you idiots give them.

  6. Spoony, can go fuck himself. Worthless piece of shit. No good content for three years.

  7. and after a month he uploads another one of those retarded 5 hour lets plays of a game nobody gives a fuck about. Who in Yahs name even watches these? even those vids say like 30k views, are there 30k completely braindead people in america or wtf??
    I wonder what happened to Miles, we were told he would sometimes come over for a movie review or at least do it by skype but of course nothing... Miles should just quit his police job and make a reviewing site that blasts spoony from the internet

    2. Really? Could you post a link?

    4. I went to Shadocon and his panel etc and it was actually a lot of fun. He's not a bad guy. He was funny, warm, and engaging. He treated his fans with respect, and made the whole thing about us and the experience. He was also upfront and honest with us about his lack of reviews and content. I also got to talk with him a little, and I've got to say...he's legit. It's not an act and he DOES appreciate and want his fans. I know, I know. Bring forth your hate. I'm an ass etc etc

    5. I wish someone had filmed something from his panel and uploaded it. Wish I could've been there.

    1. Im banned from his forums for telling the pedos/furries and mylittlepony creeps there that they have a problem lol. Spoony rather wants sickos on his forums that normal people so could you summarize what its about?

    1. we also are going to need a Mike Matei sucks, I recently started watching Cinnemassacre (yeah late to the party I know) but that MIke is so annoying... He tries to be uber gay (or just is uber gay) and I hate every single comment he makes, I can no longer enjoy any nerd video so I need to vent my hate somewhere lol

      Delete
    2. Matei also ruined the 2015 version of Monster Madness. Cinemassacre is a joke now too, and AVGN is dead.

  12. So I'm an old fan of Spoony and Channel Awesome. I still have a place in my heart for this guy and that website in spite of the fact that Spoony and many of his old friends have revealed themselves to be massive douchebags. It's unfortunate but it's true and they really seem to revel in the muck they drag themselves through, and to be fair as an outsider that's entertaining to watch to if not sad. It's unfortunate that Spoony continues to act like a douche and has now censored comments on his website. Aside from being a shitty thing to do to your fans, without ANY feedback, he's basically a ranting crazy person now that has a website. This episode is a good example.

    I've actually been enjoying Counter Monkey. I understand why a lot of people don't like it. I enjoy it because I am in a position right now, primarily due to work, that I can't roleplay anymore. So I actually enjoy listening to Noah talk about his old games as well as listen Lordkat's roleplaying streams including Spoony's old Deathlok game (The Chronicles Of Wyrmwick is awesome!) They give me roleplaying fix and that's cool.

    But this episode really bothers me. Yeah, he's ranting for thirty minutes about how he can't find anything about anti-paladins. And Spoony is supposed to be someone who knows about Dungeons and Dragons, who has proven over again in countless previous episodes of his various shows that he has a bunch of the books and has at least read or skimmed some of them. And at no point in time in this nonsensical rant does he ever say the word Blackguard. Or if he does I don't remember his saying it. He goes on and on and on about how come you can't find the polar opposite of a paladin in DnD for this reason or for that reason blah blah blah! And it's supposed to be in all black and evil and rides a dark horse and shit. And I'm just like "Yeah, Spoony! It's called a fucking BLACKGUARD!" I don't know if it is in previous additions but it sure as hell is in DND 3.5 in the Dungeon Master's manual. He never acknowledges this fact the entire video aside from hand waving a comment "I think it might be a prestige class in one the later additions" and then he never goes back to that and he just keeps ranting about how he can't find this thing that I knew about the first week I played DND for the first time. And of course he censors comments. Because he's an asshole and if he hadn't everyone and their mother would have shouted him back to the stone age in the comments because this class is common knowledge. Someone mentioned Baldur's Gate in the above comments. You can play blackguards in Neverwinter Nights which came after Baldur's Gate. So aside from the obvious what the fuck is wrong with Spoony? I know he's a douche and a drama queen, has been one for years. I mean aside from that because this is a new level of stupid even for him.

    I think it's great that this blog is here partially because Spoony's being a douche and censoring comments but I think it's also great that communities that call out internet celebrities on their bullshit and finally really getting underway, especially for Channel Awesome alumni. A lot of people affiliated with that site are incredibly thin skinned and even now they have too many white knights defending them. If they are critics then they need to know how to take criticism.

    I will say though I enjoyed his review of The Apocalypse Stone, the Baboon episode, and the miscible episode which I think is just ok. But this one irritates me cus I'm listening to it and all I want to do is ambush this guy at a game store, shove a 3.5 DM's guide in his face, point to the Blackguard and "You're fucking stupid!" and walk away like a boss.

  13. I think the point of this video is he is looking for or want's a class that has very specific powers unique to it that is not just an evil paladin (blackguard) but has tailored made abilities for it and is it's own unique class. But even then he's not very eloquent in explaining that point and he looks dumb for not acknowledging blackguards. I suppose a special class called Anti-paladin could be could but if your looking for special abilities why not just play a Blackguard and deck yourself out with a bunch of evil spells from The Book Of Vile Darkness. That would work for 3.5. I don't know if there's a 5th edition equivalent but I still don't know what the problem is he's having.

  14. You make me feel dirty... how dare you make me post something in defense of Spoony....

    Counter Monkey is one of his oldest series that actually awarded a large portion of his following. Not doing these videos is the same crime he commits not reviewing games and instead doing his stupid ass wrestling series that nobody likes.

    Spoony is supposed to review and talk about nerdy shit. This includes games, movies, boardgames and RPG. I don't see where his wrestling obsession comes into this.

    I read his twitter and it was like 50 tweets in ONE DAY about pointless wrestling SHITE.
