Pretty sure Valve is just going to delete Greenlight and apologize for it. I wouldn’t even be upset if they did. I would completely understand at this point.
This… can’t be real.
If they wanted to donate to Child’s Play (where the Greenlight fee goes) then why don’t they just donate to Child’s Play without wasting their time making a Greenlight page? If their submissions are so blatantly bullshit they should be forced to pay the fee every time rather than the 1 time per account or better yet just ban them. Greenlight will likely never rise above all the garbage but they can at least try to stem the tide.
Jim, you international terrorist, you can’t use that footage of John Oliver here! That’s stealing! To the re-education camp with you.
John Oliver dating sim confirmed?
This just confirms how nothing will come from greenlight… don’t prove me wrong just accept my statement! I’m too right to be wrong! Look at this!!
and its gone
This is actually on steam greenlight? Seriously man?
well…even steam where fast on putting a ‘copyright beat-down’ on that
I MEAN COME ON
its already gone
Just you wait, Jim. When this actually turns out to be the best game ever, you’ll be so sorry.
I think this guy might be on your side, Jim.
what the fuck.
Is this the real life, or is this just fantasy?
I saw Ender’s Game the movie on Steam once. not Greenlight…Steam proper.
Is this Frog Fractions 2?
oh and BTW the description is just about wow. its basically listing all the expansions that wow have from the burning crusade to legion. WTF…. why is this piece of news description for anything?
“The best game of the world is coming”
Well, technically – I mean, I wouldn’t say he’s wrong. The best game that humanity will ever produce probably hasn’t been developed yet. We’ve got the whole long future ahead of us, and games are generally getting better all the time – I’d say that whatever the ‘best game ever’ is, it’s probably going to exist at some point in the future.
He’s not necessarily saying that this game is the best game in the world. Only that the best game in the world… is coming. Someday.
Greenlight page for the “game” got taken down.
MY WORLDS ARE COLLIDING!
Dat Black Ops reference tho.
Dogs don’t like hugs? :(
You know what? In all the time I’ve watched you, Jim, I never thought I’d hear your thoughts on John Oliver… At least that came out of this.
This game looks interesting. I’m looking forward to early access.
Damn, when I got the notification on my phone (no thumbnail to know it was a greenlight video) I was hoping it meant that somehow John Oliver had become wise to the ContentID gridlock system and would expose contentID bullshit on his show. Instead, it’s this cocking mess. What even is going on here? At first with a title like nvgame and just random trailer I thought maybe it was some dev testing placeholder we weren’t meant to find, but the chinese description and chrome screenshots just make it mind boggling.
…if I had to guess? This might be someone that’s still getting a feel for the interface using placeholder images and video, and accidentally his “publish”. Only rational possibility I can think of.
Test post, please ignore.
Hope it has microtransactions!
nvgame ?= not videogame
I love that show!
the description is just stuff about wow release dates I think. I can’t be fucked to try and read it, but one things for sure… that’s a hundred bucks flushed down the drain.
I said people are spamming Greenlight with shit.
Is Steam Greenlight becoming the new youtube? I mean there are Videos, descriptions and comments! perfect right? Maybe I’ll upload some dank food-challange tomorrow and at the end….I don’t know…ask for subscribers.
This seems like a great new way to host pirated video content. I look forward to seeing the next episode of GoT uploaded as a trailer for nvgame2.
And so, like YT was first a dating site, now Steam Greenlight will become a video hosting website.
greenlight never ceases to amaze
This video got ad claimed Jim
Still better than most shit on greenlight.
I once streamed porn with steam braadcast, not even banned XD
Someone wasted $100 on this. Wow.
I’m going to record myself speaking in tongues and put that over a clip from Pirates of the Caribbean. I’ll post it on steam greenlight under the name JFSSplaysw/oballs_v2. My studios name will be Joseph, yep just Joseph. And the Icon for the game will be a picture of the hairs growing out of my toe.
I was just watching John Oliver
I still have a question, where are the RPG elements?
must be part of the Five Year Plan
Maybe this is another test of Greenlight.
Well at least something PLAYS …
At least the Content ID system on Greenlight isn’t Youtube’s
It costs 100 dollars to do this shit but ey, u got on Greenlight nonsense with Jim Sterling
I would’ve loved to see the page in question but apparently (but not surprising) it was taken down.
Greenlight has become a parody of itself.
I feel like, after reading the page, some horrible monstrosity is going creep out of a portal from the darkest trench of the blackest hell, and eat my soul as well as my cats.
okay, genuinely confused….
yeah….ill stick to console gaming
$100 well spent.
Someone finally invented the ungame.
Once again,I’d be convinced some people must think Greenlight is video sharing site…if it wasn’t for the werid “screenshots” I guess the truth is Greenlight really is just this awful now.
i bet this person wanted to further show how ANYTHING can be uploaded to Steam
So is this like Dark Souls?
I was thinking of comparing this to VTO Doy, but at least VTO Doy seemed to be an actual game, mind-boggling or otherwise.
this looks like an arg or something
…and its gone from Steam
These are dark times we live in.
Of course you like John Oliver, how else would you know what *the current year* is…
Somebody spent 100$ to do this. Wow.
So… is this some way of circumventing Net restrictions to view Last Week Tonight? Is Steam not blacklisted in China or something? This really seems like a bafflingly complex bootstrap job.
Are we gonna get any Uncharted 4 gameplay?
Clap, clap, clap. Well done with curation Valve. Thankfully I’ve been moving over to GOG.
Is this just some kind of new spambot? There propably is a way they could give you a virus through steam.
now removed from greenlight, and it looks like the c2engine account is heading that way
OMG hhahaha the description is the World of Warcraft description in Simplified Chinese hahhaa
The funniest part though is how the guy who wrote the first comment in Chinese saying that “Did you know that you can change the visibility to “Private” on Greenlight?” Still not sure what this dev is trying to achieve, I’m all for them trying to prove how full of holes Greenlight is however.
Funny thing about this is you’re the one that’ll get copyright struck for showing that footage.
Did the person putting it on steam greenlight even know what steam greenlight is and what he’s doing?
The “Developer” did post a comment saying “This was just a test to see how to upload a game to Greenlight.”
I am pretty sure this was just testing Steam greenlight productivity. Doesn’t seem to be working.
Did they do this to avoid censorship somehow? Video distribution by steam ?
The internet has become sentient and is now posting crap on greenlight.
This has to be the ‘developer’ proving some kind of point, like how anything can get on Greenlight regardless of quality or even if it’s a game. I refuse to believe this is unironic.
I seriously wouldn’t even be surprised if this gets through greenlight.
Two British expatriates who live in America and are popular entertainment personalities–are Jim Sterling and John Oliver actually the same person?
Last Week tonight is region locked on youtube, maybe this is meant to be a way to get around it?
Or maybe Last Week Tonight are going to do a story on Steam/Greenlight?
The author took it down, such a shame.
Loved the Black Ops Reference
soon Steam Greenlight is going to be a haven for video piracy.
It is probably placeholder that some guy did not set to private. (The first Chinese reply basically means “do you not know Greenlight can be set to hidden?”)
Every time something like this happens I just want to meet and talk with the person responsible. How is this person actually in real life and why did this happen and what sparked the idea?
It’s as if they meant to upload game footage and screenshots but borked it so completely that they passed it off as intentional out of embarrassment. There’s a reason why simply adding a number to a generic file name is a bad idea.
I say we all upvote this to rub the toxic waste dump that is steam greenlight in Valve’s faces.
Someone wanted to be featured on Jim Sterling’s Steam Greenlight series.
And now… this
this baffling at best
Well, if someone from China uploaded it, then no wonder. Their minds are often… rather unique, shall we say.
