I thought Ashens was the level headed one of the lot, but if he gave that dimwit that amount of money to piss away on a risky vanity project, he’s an utter moron like the rest of them, and not the intelligent level headed man I assumed him to be. I used to support Ashens for many years, but I’m starting to realize, looking at this with the fan lenses off, I always believe that a birds of a feather flock together so he’s probably just as shady as the lot he associates with, but he’s just smart about keeping his daft bullshit offline. Does he ever keep offline too! His patreon is a fucking joke as he’s never in there creating engagement or extra content for his paying fanbase. He just reuploads youtube videos a few days after he posts them live to youtube, and we all know how little that is as he goes months without posting anything. Yet his patreon is supposed to have all this extra content that he raves happens in there in his intro page. Pathetic! I can’t believe I’m admitting to logical people here that I was giving this donkey dick my monthly hard earned pounds for a few years for youtube videos I could have watched on youtube for free and far earlier than seeing them in patreon. I guess I’m no more a fool with my money than he is for handing over ten thousand pounds to that tofu brained Peter.

Ok. Maybe he’s just half the idiot I assume. It’s probably why he never breaths a word of Barcadia only vaguely when someone brings it up to him. I would be embarrassed to be associated with that place and Peter and his kind as well. I’m still done with giving him money. He obviously don’t need my money if he can easily piss away 10k to a fool like Peter and can’t be arsed to produce anything for the money. Thanks George. Good luck with the book mate!

Not sure if it’s a case of Ashens is getting boring or the fact there’s not as much funny junk in poundshops now, but I don’t enjoy the videos anywhere near as much as I used to. As soon as the Patreon appeared it seemed like the quality dipped, perhaps having a Patreon means they start making content to meet a schedule and keep people engaged rather than waiting for something really amusing to appear.

There was a lot of talk at the time that the 25k was going to prop up S&D. I was skeptical at the time about that, and since S&D accounts are now public domain on Companies House, I think I was correct.

Where? I can only see the filing for early 2023 which is before the Barcadia crowdfunder.

Blimey, you’re quite right – for some reason I thought the Kickstarter was in 2022 (didn’t take long to go to pot).

Oh well, another year to wait for that to be revealed then.

Yep, we’ve got to wait until April at the earliest and probably months after that given they seemed to have filed their tax return way after April.

Slice and Dice have £95k due >1 year. Who knows what that is, but it could well be a loan within their capacity to repay. Time will tell.
It doesn’t look like a £25k donation would make enough of a difference to concoct such a scam.

£95k is a lot of startup costs. Did they buy a lease or something?

This reminds me of those idiot people who try and open a restaurant. They sink everything they have into it, then re mortgage the house, then get family to invest. In the end it fails owing a ton of money and people lose everything. Because they ignored all the advice, and did not take an hour to do some research. It is hardly ever a case of “if you build it they will come any more”

I would not have given 20p, let alone 20 grand.

This is all YouTube’s fault! The algorithm turned them all into filthy skuzzers.
There was nothing they could have done.

The internet has nothing to do with the failure of a real brick and mortar business or lack of real human customers due to the ill advised 7 basic Ps of Marketing. Nor running a business based on your GSCE you got from Cromer Academy and your parents funding your arcade addiction on Cromer pier in the 1990s.

That’s a new one. Price, Product, Place, Promotion, People and Processes Physical Evidence. Not to name drop but Retro Replay appears to have mastered all 7. Enough to have parents during the holidays bonding over their nostalgia with their cool kids newfound 80s, 90s retro trending. Although the recent closures in The Mall Vegan and an Anime/Sci-Fi store, suggests The Mall is actually charging Units on rent now.

Things are only going to get worse. I watched an update video from the 8-bit Dork where he’s going on about how his revenue from Youtube is 10% of what it was. These people are all going to turn on each other as money from Patreon becomes essential.

Ashens, Daz or is it Persil? And now a bloody Minotaur? Is this a role playing game?

Well at least now we know why he started up the Patreon. You do wonder if they all borrow money off each other.

He sold his “new” megadrive for £600 on Ebay despite it clearly not having the preverbial hymen of the original outer retail cellophane or a price tag sticker from an old retail store intact. His other items were……..he didn’t have any. Plus a cryptic tweet another shareholder went bust meaning he was financially ruined. Slice and Dice or some other grifter?

He’d sold an Atari Falcon recently, but the money from that won’t last long.
