We’re not usually ones to report drama concerning competitors. There was a great bit a drama over the weekend stemming from Spunkify’s, MMOHut’s former editor-in-chief, expose on Reddit. We here at MMOBomb support Spunkify’s actions, and his stance against choosing advertising over content.

So, with much pleasure, we’re happy to announce that Spunkify will be joining the team here at MMOBomb as the US Editor. He will be providing the same community driven content, and will be actively involved within the community. Glad to have you onboard, Spunkify!

For the newcomers don´t forget to register in our site and follow us on social networks like Youtube or Facebook.

Spunk, you're a hypocritical sellout. This site has more ads than mmohut. I thought you were indie. Now that you're in charge here prove that you respect us and remove the ads. I believe Omer and that you lied.

Just read through all the drama on reddit and must say I'm shocked at the way they treated you spunkify.

I've been a long time watcher of yours and omers vids on mmohut and now it's come to this.. I'm actually pretty frequent on onrpg forums aswell but after all this I think i'll just come here to mmobomb for all my forum and f2p gaming review needs.

All the best with your new job.. Atleast mmobomb are a passionate gaming group with a clue.

This is why although I read reviews, I'm highly skeptical of them, as more often than not, they are extremely biased (and usually paid for). I prefer videos even though they're not perfect (since they're nearly always first impressions only). It's pretty much only user reviews you can trust these days, and even then you have to look out for the geniune reviews and differentiate them from fanboy ones or pure hate.

Well anyway, wish you luck Spunkify on mmobomb.com :)

Jonas 10 years ago
sucks for mmobomb - 'hey spunk, can we get that video by today?' "Oh yeah, just let me finish playing this game for most part of the day then I'll actually work for, say 10minutes? - also do you mind if i say im working from home, but im actually out shopping - also, do you mind if i disagree with everything you just said and rant about things that dont make any sense?" 'okay yeah cool no problem thanks spunk.'

Nosferat 10 years ago
Damn, now I have to stick around to see in what direction mmobomb will go on.

I was for the most part "leaving" meaning I did come and check new games and stuff every 5-6 days or so, but I lost total interest in the site since the direction it felt that as the days, weeks, months went by to be more of a corporate run business, then like "For Gamers, By Gamers" like the razer motto.

In a more shorter description, it felt that the direction is the same one mmohut followed(only it wasn't so bad)

It's saddening to watch the gaming community being destroyed by the one sided corporate mind who only wants profits and nothing else. A corporation unlike a human being, does not feel, does not care or share any kind of passions, it's a pyramid of the most greedy,selfish people you can find, some of them especially those on top of the pyramid , can easily be considered as sociopaths. No feelings for others, no remorse, no care in the world just the $ sign in their eyes and their only real pursuit in life , making money for the sake of money.

Corporate business always ruins stuff, just look at giants like EA, it's like a shark, it's constantly hungry, constantly needs to feed and it leaves only death and destruction behind. Just ask Bioware how they feel now after some time under EA :) How they like their new masters, the ones that pushed them to rush dragon age 2, rush Mass Effect 3, the main purpose it had that crappy ending and we had to wait months and months for a DLC to at least partially fix the problem.


Anyway, welcome Spunkify, we wish you all the best in the world.

Great to Have you here Spunkify. To think that yesterday I was watching the latest episode of F2P Cast and one user mention competition between MMOHut and MMOBomb and today I dont see MMOHut existing anymore without Spunkify or Omer.

Vieric 10 years ago
nice guys, hope he finds more happiness here. and heres my thoughts, posted elsewhere but ill put em here too.

I'm going to be totally honest here, I never really liked Spunkify much (nothing personal!) however, I think that was due to me feeling as though he "replaced" Omer for a long time, now that I've seen just what went down and how he handled it without caving in, I have a newfound respect for him. Sorry for not giving you a chance till now, it was foolish of me, I'll be watching with interest and hoping all works out well for you. I would also like to thank you for clearing up all the questions I've been asking myself about MMOhut for the past while now, I've known something up was since remo stopped doing first looks, seems I wasn't totally full of it. Just know that you did the right thing, and every one of us thanks you for it, you've definitely proven yourself in my eyes.

Hey there Spunkify!

I have been watching MMOHUT for a year now and I didn't like you at first when you first started. But I started to like your reviews and your humor. I'm glad that you are in a better, more respected community. You deserve to be here and i'm sure that MMOBOMB is glad to have you.

I've been using MMOBomb and Massively for information on games more then MMOhut recently, I suppose its finally time to take MMOhut off my favorites.

I'm really glad spunkify is here, and I stand by my previous comment, but I just wanted to remind all the newcomers that there's a lot of talent already here too, make sure you don't overlook them! this place isn't just "MMOHut 2" and honestly, I'd hate to see it become that. The comments I've seen seem to be of folks wanting exactly that. I ask you please be reasonable, and give the older guys a chance.

Thank you.

Batman,

I don't think that Omer will join for the mmobomb anytime soon, because he is stuck doing first look videos since its part of his contract after he sold mmohut.

I think Omer is busy working on something special, because we haven't heard about what he is being doing, expect weekly recaps.

bad1one 10 years ago
got to throw my 2 cents in there , see Inflictious, got in a good point ,yes i read most of them , and srry to hear omar is selling out to bigger bis , in this day and age ,its hard not to ,things do cost $. but like inf. said i had my doubts about spunk ,but he seems to know about mmo,s alot ,and vids ,comm so sits well with me ,and i hope ,most sites dont sell out ,and hope comm. can help out site they like if something is wrong ,just ask people for help ,believe me they will ,if not with $ maybe time ,equip. something ,and people will surprise you. lol ,gl spunk ,your going to need it ,we a wild bunch who will tell you when wrong , :>)

Hi Spunkify, ive been following you advice about unsub. the mmohut channel , and i only have one thing to say. Mmohut was one of my first pure gaming-channels i did subscribe to , but when i see what the mmohut community have become. I decided to follow you into the new community here at mmobomb and i hope i dont regret. Make shure to make alot of great gaming content and i look forward to see more from you :3

PS: please make Omer start at mmobomb too. it would have been great! :)

Spunkify,
Welcome to MMObomb!

For along time i was at mmohut, damn near every day.

The very first time i went to watch a you tube video had had to watch a 30 second tide commercial.. I was pissed. There was not even the 5 second skip ad option.

Left a small remark, and never went back.( They had lost me forever)

But thing's happen for a reason, Around my first day here was the Very first F2P cast.
Watched this site grow and change alot over the past 7 months or so, But one thing that has NEVER changed here....

How much MMObomb care's and interacts with thier community!

No F2P game site has ever remotely come close in this way.

Hope you Enjoy your stay, And again Welcome.

I found MMOhut when it was in Omer's hands but since the change it went really downhill... Recently I haven't even been close to the site due it haven't got any news I haven't heard of and has really fallen back. Now I understand why.

I did checked OnRPG every once in a while but I don't quite really like them either... poor site design and ads in your face on the main page too. Meh...

I'm pretty glad MMObomb picked up Spunkify.
