Last week, everyone was mad at GamesBeat for posting a video of Dean playing Cuphead poorly. This week, it’s PewDiePie’s turn for … worse things. On this week’s episode of the GamesBeat Decides podcast, hosts Jeffrey Grubb and Mike Minotti talk about why PewDiePie is bad, why he keeps doing this, and why other YouTubers are sick of him. As part of the fallout from PewDiePie discussion, the podcast tries to figure out what this means for the future of copyright, DMCA law, and Fair Use protections on YouTube.

On top of that, Mike and Jeff get into some other headlines, like South Park’s difficulty slider giving your character darker skin, Battlegrounds hitting 1 million concurrent players, and Games Done Quick raising $227,000 for Hurricane Harvey relief.

The crew also dives deeper into Metroid: Samus Returns, Mario + Rabbids, and Super Mario 64 Online.

Here’s the full list of discussed games:

  • Mario + Rabbids: Kingdom Battle
  • Super Mario 64 Online
  • GTA Online
  • PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds
  • Metroid: Samus Returns
