Some of the gems i have found on YouTube recently. Basically a guy playing Counter Strike with a racing wheel as well as a Novint Falcon setup with the controls attached to his pants. The real kicker about this is that its usually better than the crap regular TV spews out. :p

Right, so I guess this is what happens when youtube celebrities, indie game development, and kickstarter all collide. Overambitious goals and missed development milestones led to Yogscast jumping ship on the game they helped kickstart, and decides to partner with another open-world sandbox instead. Failed kickstarter projects like these are an inevitability, but when big youtubers officially support them their failures just become so much uglier. I can't help but feel bad for the developers, but they should have known what they were getting into when they were asked to build a game on the supports of a massive online entertainment PR machine. When you don't deliver and those supports are gone, you're left with basically nothing.

Anyway, I don't really watch too many gaming channels on Youtube but I do dip into Jenna Marbles from time to time. She cracks me up.
Also, Youtube Center let's you download Youtube videos, if that's your thing, but it isn't on the Chrome app extension store and if you try to side-load it Chrome will disable it - solution is to use SRWare Iron, which is Chrome with the Google tracking removed - once you install Iron, just remove the default search engine and homepages and you're good to go. You'll still need to handle your own cookies (sounds rude) but, Jesus, there has to be a balance between paranoia and function.
Edit: checked out that "Worth A Buy" "guy". Found a few funny videos, then hit the "Z" rant where he used "raped" about a million times. Turned me off like a switch.

You can read a bit on how it came about on the Kickstarter page. They've written their pitch as "Yogscast are making a game! Oh, and Winterkewl are going to develop it." That should already have been cause for alarm. It's hard to tell who would eventually be responsible for the game. As for their partnership, here's a quote:
Lewis and Simon can barely manage a simple jumping puzzle - so the Yogscast aren’t going to be doing any actual coding! We aren't programmers or artists but luckily we have close friends at Winterkewl Games who are. They are a team of talented indie developers based in and around Hollywood, California. Their artists and programmers are long-time veterans of film and game companies - working at the highest levels of production. We started concept work and pre-production during our trip to Los Angeles in October 2011, which might help to explain how we ended up visiting Dreamworks in this video:
This will be Winterkewl Games’s first title but after seeing what they have been able to put together for our demo we are sure these are the right guys for the job! In only a few months of part-time development, the game is already looking fantastic.
Winterkewl’s artists, modelers, animators and programmers are partnering with us on this project to create the game our community wants. Whatever we together can imagine they will endeavour to make real. In the game at least! All of the art on this page as well as everything you can see on Yogventures official website - http://www.yognaughts.com - was created by this highly skilled team of artists and programmers!

It does look like Winterkewl were approached but that could just be spin to make it look like a Yogcast idea so it'd appeal to the fans more.
Could be a false positive but Malwarebytes realtime blocked that yognaughts site.
