Dr Disrespect Starting Game Studio

Dr Disrespect, popular streamer, influencer, and president of the Hair Club for Men, is apparently following through on long-running threats to start his own game company. This page outlines the "life changing opportunity" represented by running the new studio:
Dr Disrespect in partnership with BoomTV is taking on the game industry by storm and incubating a new AA/AAA gaming studio that has a unique twist to it. The studio plans to forge a partnership with a select list of mega influencers and then work closely with them to launch their dream gaming title. Those gaming titles will either be incubated and developed OR partner/co develop with existing indie game developers and launched as mega titles.

If you have built and run a gaming studio or publishing arm, understand what it’s like to hire, lead, motivate and support a team of gaming artists, designers and developers, love trying new and upcoming platforms and tech, can talk hours about core gaming loops, meta and are not afraid to dabble in data, then this might be the role for you.

I am pretty sure that anyone who uses “mega influencers”, “dream gaming title”, and “mega titles” in the same paragraph is incapable of creating anything remotely resembling fun. In fact, I would say they are unaware of ‘fun’ as even an abstract concept…
So you don't think it will be a Mega Fun game.

Well, I am sure it will be mega something, they made that clear, but probably not fun.

This all sounds Mega Bad.....
..but you have to have a bit of respect for a guy who got shafted out of a Mega Contract by a Mega Corporation and is trying to recuperate from that in someway.... even if it fails Mega Big .

Flash this just in...

Fading mega influencers band together to form gaming studio for the propose reality series pilot they hope they can pitch to the likes of Netflix etc.

What does a fading aging influencer do when they are no longer the rage? Like so many fading stars of various entertainment genres, realith TV ala Hulk Hogan etc.

Heh seems to be the consensus, he's gonna spend a lot of money to learn rule #1: "Making video games is hard"
Also seemed to be similar concepts on how Law Breakers got made. Made like 300 people briefly real happy and everyone else was all no thanks.

Missed opportunity for Dr. Disrespect to start a DD gaming studio instead of the usual AA/AAA gaming studios. Oh well.

Dr Disrespect is the Two Time Consecutive Blockbuster Video Game Champion (1993-1994). He is known for his iconic 6’8 frame, 37 inch vertical leap, and the Bullet Proof Mullet aka the Black Steel that runs down his spine. His sunglasses are Google Prototype Scopes with built-in LCD LED 1080p 3D Sony technology. His upper lip is adorned by the Ethiopian Poisonous Caterpillar aka Slick Daddy. He rules the Arena with violence, speed, and momentum; and his reign has just begun.

It's a lot easier to comment on games than to make them.

Well at least this can't possibly lose as much money as Curt Schilling's studio, and the games won't likely be near as good as Kingdoms of Amalur, either
