FreddieW Says ENDO Is Hardcore About Guns

On twitter referring to how we often tear him a new one when it comes to the details in his videos:


Sure I’ve wrote some pretty harsh posts (as seen in his link) about how he “fell off” in the past, but I’ve also praised him plenty of times.  It sounds nit-picky but in every hobby people are going to criticize something they see that isn’t correct.  Freddiew is a smart guy, and it’s obvious by the tweets that he’s not bothered by what any of us have said… and his reasons are exactly what I thought they would be.

Real guns vs video games:


Makes sense.

And in criticism of my “Freddiew isn’t making videos like he used to” type statement, @JonPaula commented and Freddiew replied:

Which is also fair… I definitely would have sneered that “all his videos are the exact same”, I’m predictable like that.

Freddiew also touched on addyyoon’s comment about the non stop gun clicking noises:

At the end of the day I hope Freddiew and I can still be internet bros.  We both toil toward the common goal of entertaining the masses, and we both obviously share common interests.

You can find Freddiew on YouTube, and on Twitter.  Make sure and follow @Gunblog (that’s me, ENDO) on twitter as well.

Thoughts?

I also was a bit harsh with freddiie. Ive been subscribed to him for alot longer than i have been on this site (which oddly enough isnt very long). I enjoy his videos. Hitman interested me more than some of his previous stuff (VGHS mostly). I re watched hitman and RC chase and thought they were awesome, so for my “not good since Sand Castle NINJA (actually called Sand Castle Sensei)” i was mistaken. Army of two was cool, loved the dialogue. Old school vs new school was amazing too for the effects and “videography” (i am also subscribed to his second channel which is the behind the scenes. he shows how they get certain shots and sometimes shows an effect and the evolution of a scene from raw, pre-vfx film to finished products).

Freddie (and brandon, et al.) keep up the great work. Watching your videos have inspired me to become a better photographer and videographer.

Definitely impressive for Freddie to actually read what people have to say about his work. Even more so due to the fact that this site is probably a bit outside of his normal crowd. I wouldn’t be too surprised to hear that he frequents video game sites, but kudos for branching out.

In the firearm community, most people expect their comment to go completely unheard by the person they’re talking about. In the rare cases that the comments are received, the usual response is one of hostility or ivory tower BS. People usually end up turning up the fires when commenting because of this. We’re a community that’s driven by content. Being an ass to the people who make the content only makes it less likely for that person to continue to make new content and also makes new people less likely to put their work out there. Why would they if everyone is going to curse them and their mom?

Maybe we’ll learn to be a bit more polite when giving criticism. You never know when the person on the other end is really listening. Big thumbs up to Freddie.

Oh, damn, didn’t think my comment would get noticed haha. Don’t get me “Wong,” I love Freddie and his crew and think their vids are great. I just love guns so much that I have a big stick up my ass when something isn’t portrayed correctly or terminology is misused (actually writing research paper on that for school). Fight on and let’s go shooting sometime, Freddiew!

Freddie, your videos are appreciated and they vary enough to give us the general genre you normally stick with. Just because ENDO Mike is overly sarcastic and largely douchey, don’t let it represent the rest of your viewers who frequent ENDO. Seriously, he’s harsh on everyone, it’s just how he is and it’s something we all get over because he still does put up good finds constantly, ie., Buck Yeager videos and the deserved scorn and harshness given him.

My only complaint is I wish he would integrate more of the realism we all complain about as to separate himself more from the source of his inspiration. I still see his videos as, “oh it’s the guy who copied Metal Gear,” as opposed to, “oh, it’s a new Freddie video.” On the other hand, FPS Russia, love him or hate him, is pretty distinctive.

Let’s face it, “clicky sounds,” reminds us about x-ray proof Glocks a la Die Hard 2.

If you want to watch Asians play with toys, watch Freddie’s videos. If you want to watch some Asians running some guns, watch Cut You Down.

You know I specifically said the same thing he did. The clicky sounds are part of hollywood. It’s art, that’s just how it has to be.
