      @TheProfessor Hah Nope! The people who are eligible are the nominees I made and grubgun (the guy I tied with) made. I was eligible last month because the last winner Kitt171 nominated me and so it goes. Thanks though. Last time I was eligible was several years ago but I was up against a very popular Youtuber that thrashed me lol. I suspect I wont be up again anytime soon.

      He was one of the detectives in Highlander, and great in Lebowski. Another big loss.

      He was great, R.I.P.

  4. WELL GANG FYI - MUCH to my surprise I was just messaged by Chris aka NovaBug, I TIED for YOUTUBER of the month, which is incredible considering how rarely I upload these days. TO BE CLEAR I TIED with Grubgun which is fine as I totally expected to lose by a landslide but thanks to my begging and all of you who took pity on me and voted I tied, we each got 36 votes :)

      He was great in its a Mad, Mad, Mad, Mad World.

  5. If anyone would be so cool to throw me a vote in youtuber of the month so at least I would have a bit less embarrassment when Grubgun takes it by a landslide I would really appreciate it thanks. Here is link to youtube video, please just post a comment that you vote for MaximumRD

  10. Honestly my first video in a LONG time I have put effort into. Wanted this one to be special for all the classic competing fans . A tour of the U.S.S.

  11. Depending where you are it is April 1st today SO please take everything you read online with the tiniest grain of salt especially on Facebook etc. Honestly if I was not so damn addicted I would sit it out for a couple days as I find the internet really annoying around this time.

      Nothing "Official" will ever be posted from Atari I/O as part of an April Fools prank. There are so many misleading stories and unbelievable scams in classic gaming, it's become quite annoying to weed through the trash. I'd like for Atari I/O announcements to be reliable.

      @DeLorean I do not beleive so, it was brought to attention of the public with terrific viral marketing convincing the studio that fans wanted it and wanted a "proper" Deadpool movie and it worked out for all involved big time.
