I will hold the specialty stream on January 20th, Monday at 3PM PST. YouTube members and Patrons have voted that it will be a game night with friends. You can join the stream and say hello or say nothing and watch in complete silence. Only I will judge you.
We hope you enjoy using it. yiff.party operates on a non-profit basis, and as such, all the server expenses are paid by our users. We don't want to run ads or infect you with crypto miners. We depend on users like you to keep the site running, and to preserve years and terabytes of amazing content—some of which is no longer available from its original creators!
Because of the nature of the site, many users are reluctant to donate. That's OK! yiff.party was created so everyone can enjoy the content we host without any restrictions or paywalls. But if you value the service we provide, and are able to, we—and our users—would be tremendously grateful if you considered making a donation.
So far, approximately $182.48 has been raised out of our target of $280.00. We're about 65% of the way there! Please note: this tracker is updated manually—don't worry if your donation doesn't show up immediately!
yiff.party's server costs are due on the last day of each month. So, we need to meet this goal before 31 January!
At this time, yiff.party can only accept donations in numerous cryptocurrencies. Please select a currency below to display the relevant donation address.
Due to the nature of sites like yiff.party, it is very difficult to find payment processors who will accept clients like us. If we were to accept donations via PayPal, it wouldn't take more than a day for someone to submit an abuse report and get our account frozen. Until a viable way of accepting monetary donations becomes available, cryptocurrency will remain the only option.
There are many resources available on how to purchase crypto. For Bitcoin, check out bitcoin.org's page on buying Bitcoin for a list of methods. For beginner Bitcoin users, yiff.party recommends using an escrow service such as LocalBitcoins.

I have revamped my merchandise to look nicer / include more memes. The links in following streams and videos will be more clear about the inclusion of merch. I will also begin running monthly donation goals to keep myself stable throughout the year financially. This goal is $2000, which pays for everything that can/will occur within a month. Once the goal is reached, a poll will be held between YouTube members and patrons from Patreon on what the specialty stream should be. There could be extra specialty streams in a month depending on how well donations go and what the specialty stream is. The progress of every month will be posted in the community tab on YouTube.
You guys (and YouTube members) will be able to vote on the specialty stream when a goal is met in a private poll.
Hello, everyone. I've been away for a very long time working on this. I hope you all enjoy.

I now have a job with 20th Century Fox working on a virtual production feature film. The project I will be working on will be very intense, consuming a lot of my time. This means that over the Summer, there will be no new videos on my channel. I may make a streaming schedule, but that will be announced when I have a solid fix on my well-being after a week or two of working on this project.
Because of this, I will change the payment plan from monthly to per-video (charging only on big releases, not 'Dinner Time').
I will not give out any details of the project, because I have signed an NDA. I will release a video by the end of this month retelling this information and more when I have all the details together.
It's pretty and atmospheric.
And that's everything positive I had to say about it.

Here's my full review on this game (as taken from the community tab):
I have been playing Resident Evil games for over a decade. I was hooked on RE4 for the GameCube, played RE1 for the Nintendo DS, then followed every entry onward with either PC emulation or PC ports. I'm incredibly fond of this franchise and its tropes, both narratively and mechanically. So when I looked at the difficulty settings for Resident Evil 2 Remake, I scoffed at the idea of shooting my way through Raccoon Police Department without ink ribbons. “Autosaves [on Standard]?” No way. “For Hardcore Fans of the Series?” Sounds like it was made for me. I selected it and hoped for what I had felt upon playing Resident Evil 1's remake – the same, but more.
This game is not that.
It is different, yet less.
Before I get into the downfalls of the gameplay itself, I want to address the elephant in the room that somehow nobody is talking about. There is no Scenario B. In the 1998 original, Scenario B was a somewhat different route for the characters you picked. An armory that was looted in the A Scenario would be empty in B. Devices activated that weakened enemies in A would strengthen them in B. Bosses would evolve in the B scenario after taking damage in the A scenario. Not only that, but paths would change as well. Side characters' fates would change depending on who you played first, leading to four different campaigns for players to experience. In the 2019 remake, it all has been scuffed to who doesn't get Marvin and who gets a sidearm that messes up ammo drops. You do not even get to run from the cop car to the RPD in the B Scenario – a first sign of many that corners were cut. Notes in the B Scenario disclosing vital character information were cutscenes in the 98 original, delivering plot in an engaging manner. Ada's exposition stroll about Umbrella in the 2019 remake [ Kendo's Gun Shop to the Sewers ] is delivered throughout the 1998 original from characters in conflict. In fact, most plot points from the 98 original are shotgunned into the game so that the game itself can commence. This method of storytelling in the remake somehow dis-includes the entirety of Resident Evil 1's story line – forgoing all information about the S.T.A.R.S. team, the mansion, Raccoon Forest, and the cover up that threatened their lives. Imagine if the film Aliens did not discuss the Nostromo, its crew, or even include the survivor Ripley. We would still have marines blast the hell out of xenomorphs on LV426, but the informed audience would wonder what the hell happened to the prior entry. Capcom couldn't even get the canonical story correct, as it is confirmed knowledge that Claire A, Leon B is the route intended for the official story line of Resident Evil. A story line not even delivered in the remake.
But a game doesn't need the best story ever to be a great game. Doom 93 is still captivating from its first level to its last thanks to amazing game design.
The same cannot be said about RE2 2019's gameplay. On Hardcore, every enemy hits as hard as the next, which makes every encounter frustrating. Zombies can now kill a player in two bites, just as much as a licker can, just as much as Birkin in his final stage can. Damage becomes a meaningless variable to gauge a monster's power when the player is reduced to tissue paper. The weapons are also equally useless. Leaks have shown that damage delivered to the body is always non-specific, which means headshots hit just as hard as arm or leg shots. The chance to crit-hit a head is pointless when leg shots make a zombie almost entirely harmless. On a base level, when a zombie in your game is best defeated by shooting its legs, you are either re-inventing the genre from the ground up, or failed to deliver the expectations of your game's franchise (and the genre as a whole.) Shotguns which have always been the powerhouse of Resident Evil 2 are now useless as zombies can shrug off blasts at random. Advanced enemies will not even notice the shotgun blasting into them as they charge through high-velocity lead obliterating their flesh. The adaptive difficulty in this game creates a sense of constant unreliability as your performance dictates the amount of damage you deliver to enemies. This is incredibly frustrating for me, but it isn't for others. Regardless, the guns in the 98 version put the remake's to shame, as a fully upgraded shotgun can destroy halls of zombies. It was incredibly satisfying – something that should have been passed on from the original to the remake.
A complaint can be made that I want the game to be easier – or that I should play on Standard. However, I like a challenge. I like to feel overwhelmed by forces beyond my ammo count. Standard suffers from being far too easy, as you stockpile more ammo than the original RE2 gave its player – not to mention the ability to save whenever. Hardcore allows zombies to take more lead in their brains in mass than the actual brains that are being destroyed. It feels moronic to be unloading shot after shot into a human skull with no affect taking place. This wouldn't be hard to fix. Add more enemies. The city is completely infected, after all. Take away some of the ammo. Give players a greater sense of conservation. And of course, make guns feel great. The act of using your weapons in a Resident Evil game should feel like a solution. The puzzle to a hallway full of zombies is a shotgun blast that knocks them to their feet. And of course, get rid of the insane magnetism that this game has. Time after time, I have been pulled into an attack that I was nowhere close to. It was so aggravating to be on an adjacent angle from a zombie's grab, only to be sucked into an animation and bitten. Lower the detection range of grabs. It is ridiculous.
A hope that I had was that the Ghost Survivors DLC would patch up the missing story elements in a neat fashion that Resident Evil 7 had done for its DLC. Unfortunately, we got a horribly scored, remixed version of Hunk's escape mode. After going through each available mission and seeing that Capcom was steadfast in their current vision for the franchise, I quickly dropped the game. I wanted to love this game. I love the franchise and have loved it since I was a kid.
My opinion is that Resident Evil 2 Remake is a poor game, but you can observe that there is less sophistication in the 2019 version than the original game that came out over two decades ago on hardware laughable compared to modern smartphones. Graphically, it is great. Everything else was executed by either cutting corners, ignoring the source material, or forgoing an enjoyable experience for a 'scary' one.
It's at noon in pacific standard time and stuff. So, uh, okay cool.
Also new vid out soon, 99% done. Expect yelling and jazz.
As according to the polls.
unless they change
I'm aware some of you don't watch the streams due to taste or timing, so here's what will happen by the end of this month. I have two videos planned for a 30th release (yes, this month). One is a gameplay video of Dead Space and Jedi Academy, and another is a video essay on effective horror film methodology. As always, there is a Google Hangout on the last Saturday of this month at noon, which is the 29th. My Shanghai short film is in post production, the feature length script will be pitched in the following weeks, and 20th Century Fox is in contact with me about an internship, but nothing is concrete yet.
Let me know if you guys have any questions or concerns, as I would rather address something I'm unaware of than have to give a broadside response to possible inquiries.
Here is a video telling you this, and that I will be livestreaming to Twitch now. You can find this here: https://www.twitch.tv/neocran1um
Also, there's an hour long Resident Evil Randomizer video set for a Halloween to Early November release.
I am trying not to panic.
The $600 Patreon Goal was reached and a robot was summoned. Only Nine-Volt batteries and general discomfort stand in his way.

Here's what you guys have voted for overall. The HAL Stream will be on Saturday, the 18th, at noon, pacific standard time. On this stream, I will dress up in full costume as my rendition of HAL and play the patron-voted game, Deus Ex: Human Revolution. The stream will last for about three hours, then however much longer I can withstand the Los Angeles heat.
Or the embarrassment.
I asked you guys how I should reformat the Patreon page, and you voted for a monthly charge with the same output of videos. The change has been made this morning, which means on September 1st, you will be charged regardless if a video is released or not. This means two things.
1.) I am still working hard on my videos. That has not changed.
2.) Living off campus in Los Angeles will be less scary since I now have a dependable payday.
If you guys have concerns about this and want a revote, please let me know in the comments below. The HAL Stream will happen before the end of this month (if nothing breaks (which it always does.))
Thanks once again for your support.
A pro 049, some banter, and free CSGO skins for nobody.

From now on, all WAV packs can be accessed with this link. The new WAV Pack from the 'mother!' riff has been uploaded alongside the pre-existing WAV Packs.
Also, the Google Hangout is tomorrow at Noon, PST.
People have been asking a long time for Sandal, Boot, Boris, BT, and many others. Now, they're all available for non-commercial use for any patron.
This has taken so long for me to do because I am afraid of having my work re-published under someone else's alias. If that comes to be an issue, I will take down the link and it will once again be reserved for my streams alone. So please, use these for only personal use or with accreditation and without monetization.

* mother! Directed by Darren Aronofsky, performances by Jennifer Lawrence and Javier Bardem, Paramount Pictures, 2017.
* Tina Turner. "The Best (Edit)." Simply the Best, 1989.
This was a very strange edit for me to do. Discarding all the intense VFX and caption work, I had no clue how to make a cohesive summation for the events that unfold in the film. The confusion that the film possesses is the biggest reason for the duration of this video. This may lead to the video being taken down entirely and an even shorter, more confusing rendition being released. If everything goes well, this will be made public by Friday at noon, pacific standard time. The charge will be made at that time as well.
Please let me know in the comments how you guys feel about the riff.
The WAV adventure continues.
Thank you all for your support and happy holidays.
And don't forget about the Google Hangout on the 30th, also at noon in Pacific Standard Time.
We'll be back to the last Saturdays of each month at Noon, PST, starting with the 30th.
Hey guys, I pushed back the Google Hangout to the first Saturday of December because I need to focus on essays at the moment. The 2nd is a better date for me because it's not too close to any of my finals.
It will still be at noon, pacific standard time.
and then some.

On a serious note, regarding the cuts to this riff if anyone noticed...
Some of you might be asking where all the racist jokes went, and I can only say that I got rid of them due to valid concerns. The first being Snake didn't want to be affiliated with a video that openly uses the term "nigger" as a joke. The second being paranoia from Snake over whether "Young Gook," regardless of translation error or not, would be held as a joke or a racial statement. The third being from me; my concern about my education.
When I make these videos, I rewatch my edits over and over and over, seeing what does and doesn't work. The original cuts seen within the streams are the ones I was initially comfortable with. I was ready to argue each clip, from innocent to shocking, as a comedic gesture in its entirety rather than something hate-related. However, in this day and age, your honest word isn't enough to take on the behemoth of glamorized drama. The feeding frenzy of a population to take someone and rip them apart. Even a miscall leads to people being fired, stalked, and worse. I'm currently attending one of the most restrictive universities to get admitted to for film making. I had to ask myself is this video worth the risk of my education?
As a take-it-or-leave-it figure, I left it out.
Just a reminder. Every last Saturday at the end of every month. 12PM PST, 3PM EST, 8PM for weird people.
With the final edits in place, here's the official public cut for Tim is a Fat, Delicious Man. Once again, thanks for your patronage.
Also, in case you haven't joined the streams, I have a Discord now.
I need to fix a patron's name and change Dorrito to Dorito.
Any other fixes that you guys see fit, please let me know before midnight.
From the Marble Hornets Riff.
