[=OMFGCata=] is a Website/YouTube channel focused on gaming (more specifically, LetsPlay). Founded by [[UnfortunateNames Jesse Cox]], [=OMFGCata=] (aka OMFG Gaming) has become a center of comedic [[LetsPlay Let's Plays]] that has attracted quite a strong fan base. While Jesse originally started his channel by posting videos focused on ''[[WorldofWarcraft World of Warcraft: Cataclysm]]'' ([[CaptainObvious hence the title of the YouTube channel]]), he has since branched out into other games such as ''{{Minecraft}}'' and ''Videogame/{{Terraria}}''. Since the channel was founded, several other members have joined the [=OMFGCata=] team, including [[TheSmartGuy Pride]] (aka TheSmokingGamer), [[TheFaceless Blondie]], [[GamerGirl the Co-Dependent Girls (Aevynne, Trish, and Chiib)]], {{Cloudcuckoolander}} {{Crendor}} and the [[FiveManBand regular builders]] of the Minecraft RPG Makers series. Needless to say, HilarityEnsues. A member of TheGameStation, and frequent collaborator with fellow members TotalBiscuit and occasionally the {{Yogscast}}. You can find his Website/YouTube channel [[http://www.youtube.com/jessecox here]]. ---- !!Tropes that apply to OMFG Cata: * AccidentalPervert: While explaining why he has pinkish sheets on his bed, one of the reasons he gives is "so that [girls] don't suspect that I'm a ''sexual predator''," which is immediately followed up with "WAIT NO- WAIT, I- ...umm, ignore that. Ignore that." * ApologeticAttacker: Especially when he hits an enemy in the "crotchular area." * ArchEnemy: Declares himself to be one with Creator/HuskyStarcraft, whom he interacted with for one of the first times on video in the second TheGameStation podcast. Husky's reaction? [[https://twitter.com/#!/JesseCox/status/163438598908166146 He's cool with it]]. * ArtifactTitle: See NonIndicativeName. * AscendedExtra: ** It took a few episodes before Thomas (aka Omzit, aka [[MemeticMutation Cookie Monster]]) got a speaking role in the RPG Maker's Series. ** Pride also started off as a guest host before joining the team. * AscendedFanboy: The character Genji in ''{{VideoGame/Awesomenauts}}'' was voiced by Jesse, and the character's backstory is basically Jesse's Giant Space Butterfly RunningGag. * AssholeVictim: Jesse's attitude towards the kids in ''VideoGame/{{Fahrenheit}}'s'' flashback sequence. He constantly calls them "Little asshole kids." * AttentionDeficitOohShiny: Combined with Jesse's KleptomaniacHero playing style causes quite a bit of distraction. ** Brought up to eleven in his Skyrim LetsPlay, where Jesse insists on following every fox he sees for no particular reason even though he acknowledges that they almost always lead him into trouble, especially the white ones. * AwesomeMcCoolName: [[VideoGame/{{Terraria}} DJ Jazzy Worm Jeff]]. Also, Frankenstein Joe and his many [[WordSaladTitle album names]]. * BerserkButton: ** "SO MANY FREAKING SQUARES!" ** And for Meeuwes: [[MistakenNationality "Danish....DANISH!?!?!"]] ** Lest we forget the infamous blow up during a Gamestation Podcast during discussion of the morality of day-one DLC: "HOW THE FUCK DO YOU KNOW THAT, YOU COCKGOBLIN!!" ** There's been more than a few times in which Jessie and TB have gotten into more than a heated debate about difficulty in games. Though it seems to have died down lately because TB has came out against NintendoHard difficulty, it hit its peak when TB announced that he was done playing WoW due to nerfing of dungeons, which Jessie made a counter video to (which never mentioned TB by name though many could suspect that since TB was the elephant in the room during the debate, Jessie was mainly targeting him with the video). ** VideoGame/FinalFantasyXIII seems to be one. Especially Lightning Returns, which sent him on a 10 minute rant. ** He vehemently rails against anything that Damon Lindelof is involved in, mostly regarding the way he handles story endings. * BlackComedy: Dead Necromorph Baby Comedy in Jesse's [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=I6pVhwrJJpg Taking Care of Babies PSA]]. --> "How many times in life are you going to hear someone say 'I'm gonna stomp this baby.'" * BlondeBrunetteRedhead: Male Version. The 6th Podcast has Jesse, [[TheCynicalBrit TB]] and [[{{Yogscast}} Simon]] respectively, [[BadassBeard Badass Beards]] and all. * BuffySpeak: Jesse sometimes veers into this when he gets excited. -->'''Jesse:''' Oh! Oh! That was like ''what's-his-face'' in that ''movie''! Where he does the ''thing'' to the ''guy''!... ''{{Troy}}'', that's the movie. * CatchPhrase: See the bottom of this page. ** "[[MadLibsCatchPhrase X]] in yo' face!" ** "Hey-o." ** [[AntiHero "Bad Dovahkiin!"]] ** [[VideoGame/DukeNukemForever "HYUP!"]] ** "Savin' the day the VideoGame/{{McPixel}} way!" *** "Well that just happened..." ** "[[{{Dishonored}} Aaaand...Q!!!]]" *** "And E!!!" ** [[ChivalryMedievalWarfare "FALRAK IS A DOOB!"]] ** "Bwap!"- Used while shooting people with a sniper rifle in ''VideoGame/FarCry3'' and ''VideoGame/BioShockInfinite,'' or the Force Gun in ''VideoGame/DeadSpace2'' ** [[VideoGame/BioShockInfinite "Take that, Devil!"]] * ChainmailBikini: While trying to [[VideoGame/GameDevTycoon name a Fantasy/Adventure game]], he settles on "Ladies in Tiny metal". -->'''Jesse:''' *laughs* I imagine you know what I was going for there, but, like, their armor--*continues cracking up* * CouchGag: The end of every ''VideoGame/SaintsRowTheThird'' video has Jesse and/or Crendor trying to rap (with varying levels of success). * CuckoolanderCommentator: Especially when paired up with more serious players like [[TheCynicalBrit TotalBiscuit]]. * CulturalTranslation: In the fourth episode of TheGameStation Podcast, Jesse, [[TotalBiscuit and]] [[WebVideo/PressHeartToContinue friends]] conclude that Canada either has ultra-violent or super-stereotypically-nice versions of games. * DeadpanSnarker: ** "Lizzie" (Derkeethus) is described in this way in the ''Skyrim'' playthrough, often keeping a straight face in the middle of Jesse's silly antics and mentally retorting to Jesse's bad jokes. But he doesn't actually talk outside of "personality". ** Kiskae would like to think of himself as one, making subtle remarks in the chat for anyone with a keen eye during the "RPG Makers" videos and invoking the trope directly with a ShoutOut to this very page. But like Lizzie, he doesn't actually talk, and it's difficult to communicate sarcasm through telepathy and texts. * DespairEventHorizon: [[InvokedTrope Invoked]] in his VideoGame/TheElderScrollsVSkyrim LP when [[spoiler: [[MoralityPet Meeko]] does a HeroicSacrifice to save Jesse, which happened a few episodes after he is betrayed by Lizzie/Derkeethus. This causes Jesse to no longer care about helping the [[JerkAss people of Skyrim]] and to join The Dark Brotherhood and the Thieves' Guild]]. [[RuleOfFunny Naturally]] this is soon PlayedForLaughs. -->'''Jesse:''' Bad Dovakin! ** On the Co-Optional Podcast, when his followers on Twitter were unfollowing him and following Dodger instead. As one person said: Jesse broke. * TheDitz: Jesse. It's bad when even "leading" the RPG Makers, people doubt his intelligence. -->'''Omzit:''' When Jesse knows more than you, there's something wrong. [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_detailpage&v=OCHfniOYl4g#t=644s]]\\ '''Jesse:''' Seriously. * {{Eagleland}}: Frequently invoked and parodied by Jesse. Especially on the RPG Makers. ** In his ''Videogame/{{Terraria}}'' LetsPlay with TotalBiscuit, Jesse infamously devolved into a bombthrowing Texan with PatrioticFervor as he tried to take revenge on him. * EpicFail: In a few games, but mostly throughout the Terraria series. ** For example, every time either TotalBiscuit or Jesse try to kill each other with bombs. They manage to spectacularly fail and only kill themselves each and every time. It would help if they realized that you can't kill people in your own team with explosives, only yourself. ** And finally, [[IdiosyncraticEpisodeNaming every episode of Terraria]] is called "Jesse is bad at _____" ** The finale of Game Dev Tycoon takes this to a [[UpToEleven whole new level]]: [[spoiler: He loses ALL of his money (roughly $5.5 billion) in about two minutes.]] * FantasyCounterpartCulture: The generic "Nordic/Viking" are in the RPG Makers that is meant to emulate... Nordic/Viking culture. With long houses, tribal fishing villages, and the like. * FiveManBand: Sort of... ** TheHero: [[WiseGuy Jesse]]. ** TheLancer: [[OnlySaneMan Mike]]. ** TheBigGuy: Omzit. ** TheSmartGuy: [[TheVoiceless Kiskae]]. ** KidAppealCharacter: Meeuwes. * FunPersonified: Jesse Cox is a RealLife example. * FunnyBackgroundEvent: [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_detailpage&v=_WRsbesEn4k#t=2378s We figured out where Laelette's head went]] after Jesse [[OffWithHisHead cut it off]]: Rolling into a lake during a serious mob uproar. * FunWithAcronyms: The "OMFG" in [=OMFGCata=] is explained as meaning "One Moderately Funny Gamer". ** [=Backronym=] It originally stood for Ohh My Freaking God, [[WorldOfWarcraft Cataclysm!]], it was changed after the Cataclysm Beta was concluded. * GenreSavvy: Almost as soon as he meets [[spoiler: the resistance]] in ''Dishonored'' he predicts they will betray him. Guess what happens in Part 38. ** Displays a fair amount of savvy throughout his play through of ''VideoGame/{{Outlast}}.'' In particular in Part 12, he declares, with fair reason, that the next door will reveal the big twist. The door opens into an area unlike any other in the game so far. * HiddenDepths: Jesse was a Theater ''and History'' major in college, and in fact used to teach history to troubled teenagers. If you were in doubt of his History Major, look [[http://doingitwrongandlovingit.tumblr.com/post/29048225757/i-hate-stupid-people here]]. --> '''[[WebVideo/PressHeartToContinue Dodger]], quoting Jesse regarding the map in her room''': "If there's a country I can't find on a map, it's probably because they've changed their name since I learned about it." ** He has a plaque given to him by his former school district as being rated the best history teacher in it. * HolyShitQuotient: ''MetalGearRisingRevengeance'' is already doing this to him and he's only one part in. Best illustrated at the end of the first Metal Gear RAY boss fight: -->'''Jesse''': ''(As Raiden grabs RAY's blade and ''tosses it into the air'')'' Did I just lift him?! ''DID I JUST LIFT HIM?!'' * IdenticalStranger: A rare RealLife example. It was discussed in [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BZazsebiv78 the 6th podcast]] that Jesse and [[{{Yogscast}} Simon Lane]] are eerily similar in looks. * IdiosyncraticEpisodeNaming: ** All of the ''Videogame/{{Dishonored}}'' videos are titled with a "Dis-" prefix. It culminates in the finale - "DIS is the End". Averted, however, in the DLC, which has no such system. To be fair, by this point, Jesse has exhausted every possibility of "Dis-" prefixes. ** Every episode of ''VideoGame/FarCry3'' is named after an episode of ''Series/{{Lost}}.'' * IDontLikeTheSoundOfThatPlace: Jesse plays with this in ''VideoGame/DiabloIII'', questioning why anyone would want to live in a place called the Fields of Misery. --> '''Jesse as father:''' Come on kids, we're moving to the Fields of Misery!\\ '''As kids:''' Yay!! * IJustShotMarvinInTheFace: Meeuwes during their Payday: The Heist series. * InnocentInnuendo: Jesse drops them on occasions. * InsistentTerminology: ** He keeps calling Ghostz_eu 'Comrade Creeper' when his avatar is essentially a communist ''slime''. Ghostz used to correct him before but now has given up. He still refers to Lewis' avatar, the same but in a lab coat, as "Dr. Slime", and upon the FridgeLogic being pointed out to him in an episode, it's become evident that he's continuing to do it [[ItAmusedMe to prompt]] [[RunningGag angry buttclenches]] [[ItAmusedMe from many of the viewers]]. ** He also calls [[Videogame/TheElderScrollsVSkyrim Derkeethus]] "Lizzie", due to his [[LizardFolk apperance]]. * KleptomaniacHero: Much to the [[RunningGag butt-clenching]] of fans and friends alike (either for too much of this or too little), Jesse plays his characters this way. See his LetsPlay of ''VideoGame/DeusExHumanRevolution'', ''TheWitcher2'', ''[[Videogame/{{Rage}} RAGE]]'', ''Skyrim'', ''{{Dishonored}}''... actually, see any playthrough with a looting system. * LargeHam: After all, he is [[WorldofWarcraft CRIMNOX THE SORCERER!]] ** And [[GunsOfIcarusOnline SKY CAPTAIN MAXIMILLIAN VALENTINE!]] [[DepartmentOfRedundancyDepartment CAPTAIN OF THE SKY!]] * ManOfAThousandVoices: Jesse is actually a professional voice actor (having around 4 notable voice personas with the rest being a mashup from them or movie references). * MisplacedNationalism: Invoked and parodied by the crew (especially the RPG Makers), because of how there's just as many Europeans as Americans working together. Even though they're all good friends having fun, there's very likely to be some mention of another country followed by pointing and laughing. Especially [[ButtMonkey Denmark]] and [[{{Eagleland}} America]]. * MissingEpisode: The three lost ''Videogame/{{Terraria}}'' videos. All of them had the videos lost (the second and third by accidental deletion on TB's part) but the audio saved, and TB has released the second and third lost episodes (meant to be before episode 32) as an [[http://www.cynicalbrit.com/audio/terraria_lostepisodes.mp3 audio podcast]]. The first one, meant to be before episode 13, has not been released, according to TB the audio is so corrupted it's irrepairable. * NationalStereotypes: ** Numerous are played with. Especially prominent in the RPG Makers series, where half the on-screen cast is from America and an increasing majority are from mainland Europe: they ''will'' jibe on stereotypes, such as Omzit demanding that Jesse "give him his money" because of America's debt. ** Jesse in return has an exaggerated "Durka durka"-type voice impression of Sweden, Holland, Finland, and ''even Germany''. ** Also includes self-lampooning, such as Mike's legendary ironic phrase "Trust us, we're Americans." * NonIndicativeName: While [=OMFGCata=] obviously stood for "OMFG + [[VideoGame/WorldOfWarcraft Cataclysm]]", the channel has since expanded into general gaming content, though ''VideoGame/WorldOfWarcraft'' content is still prominent. As Jesse has posted on his FAQ on top of the channel box, [=OMFGCata=] stands solely for ''VideoGame/WorldOfWarcraft'' in the same way that TotalHalibut is about fishing. It has now been extended to, as of the second Game Station Podcast, "One Moderately Funny Gamer Constantly Annoying Those Around." * OlderThanTheyLook: ** Jesse is, unbelievably enough, a 30 year old man who still keeps in step with teenagers today on internet fads. Lampshaded by TotalBiscuit, who is 27 and ''still'' more mature than Jesse, in their ''Videogame/{{Terraria}}'' LetsPlay. ** Further Lampshaded in the 6th Podcast, when Jesse comments that TB sounds like an old man reminiscing on the old days of online play, TB snarks that among he, Jesse [[spoiler:and [[{{Yogscast}} Simon]] together]], he's the youngest male there. ** Jesse has started transcending into ManChild territory with the 8th podcast, when he showcased a video by Lucahjan that contained nothing but testicle jokes, and TB starts questioning his maturity. --> '''TagLine''': Jesse Cox, he's hip to the kids! * OneOfUs: He refers to RealIsBrown in the first episode of his OmikronTheNomadSoul LP. * OnlySaneMan: ''Jesse himself'' acts as this, surprisingly, when put together with Clint Hackleman from Myndflame, [[GenkiGirl Chiib]] and [[{{Cloudcuckoolander}} Trish]] from [[GamerGirl Co-Dependent]], [[MyFriendsAndZoidberg and]] [[WiseGuy Crendor]], although he occasionally slips back into his usual quirky self. Footage [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uq9pL46MlCs here]] and [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_i-i7jpIh6U here]] cements it. * PatrioticFervour: Briefly becomes a patriotic, bomb-throwing Texan in his Terraria series. * RunningGag: ** Can you hit a lick on some brick and go ham on it? ** Meeuwes has diamonds on his neck, bitch. Seen mostly in his Minecraft skin. ** ''Danish?!'' ** Omzit and his supposed diet of shark balls. ** Cloud [=McLongfoot=]. ** [[FanWank '"Oooh! My butthole is so clenched with anger!"']] [[invoked]] ** Jesse's and TotalBiscuit's ineptitude with explosives in their ''Videogame/{{Terraria}}'' LetsPlay. ** Jesse constantly falling to his death in ''Videogame/{{Terraria}}''. Especially after TB got a Lucky Horseshoe that he had earlier promised to give to Jesse to ''prevent'' such occurances. ** When he was doing videos of the [[VideoGame/WorldOfWarcraft Worgen starting zone]] in the Cataclysm beta, any mention or meeting with [[BadassNormal Darius Crowley]] is accompanied by a clip of "[[Music/OzzyOsbourne MISTER CROOOOOOOOWWLEY]]" *bum bum bum* Later on, in any number of different videos on a variety of games, Jesse would break out a verbal "MISTER CROOOOOOOOWWLEY! BUM BUM BUM!" whenever the name "Crowley" makes an appearance. ** "Oh, Garlic! I can use that for crafting!" ** His playthrough of ''VideoGame/DeadSpace'' had him jumping in fright whenever the other two crew members contacted him, eventually driving him to scream "STOP DOING THAT!" at one of them when it happened for the umpteenth time. * RuleThirtyFourCreatorReactions: Jesse knows there is Rule 34 about him and TB, and his response: Write more and add tentacles and ''{{Warcraft}}'' females. TB's response, meanwhile, is a FlatWhat and declaration of losing the will to live (more-so than usual with Jesse). * ScreamsLikeALittleGirl: Jesse in his ''VideoGame/AmnesiaTheDarkDescent'' LetsPlay, starting at part 20. * SeinfeldianConversation: Basically the whole ''VideoGame/{{Terraria}}'' series with [=TB=], and a significant portion of the ''[[VideoGame/SaintsRowTheThird Saints Row]]'' series with Crendor. Ironically, Jesse claims these are his pet peeve when watching gameplay videos, since he thinks the game should be the focus instead of just a background for whatever you feel like talking about. * SelfDeprecation: The 6th podcast (a.k.a. the one with [[{{Yogscast}} Simon]]), Jesse wholeheartedly declares that that episode was his 'last day on the internet', himself as 'the American Simon', and that [to Simon] ''"I'll never be better than you!!"'' [[spoiler:[[BlatantLies Oh, come on, you know he's lying]]!]] * SerialEscalation: ** Just look at the progress that has been made in the [[{{Minecraft}} RPG Makers series.]] ** Jesse intends to do everything there is to do in Skyrim. His response to those who doubt him? ''Bitch, please, I'm doing everything.'' * ShockAndAwe: If there's a skill/spell in a game that lets you use lightning, most likely Jesse will be using it. And he ''will'' say [[StarWars UNLIMITED! POWAAAAH!]] * ShoutOut: Mentions that [[Franchise/ANightmareOnElmStreet Freddy]], [[Franchise/FridayThe13th Jason]], ''both'' Franchise/{{Alien}} and Franchise/{{Predator}}, and even the sharks that ate SamuelLJackson in ''Film/DeepBlueSea'' can climb ladders when the Co-Dependent girls ask what monsters can in his ''VideoGame/AmnesiaTheDarkDescent'' LetsPlay, part 20. * ShownTheirWork: Jesse knows quite a bit of American history while playing ''VideoGame/BioShockInfinite''. He notes that the "Battle of Wounded Knee" was really a massacre of innocent families, and is able to name a great deal of presidents when he encounters the Patriot Heavy Hitters. ** Worth noting he knows these things having been a history teacher in the past. * SoreLoser: Jesse does NOT take defeat well. He has stated many times that the primary reason he refuses to play competitive games is because it stresses him beyond tolerable levels and that losing, especially in front of [[FanDumb an audience,]] makes him incredibly depressed. * SpaceX: Used in the description for his [[Franchise/DeadSpace Dead Space series]], and occasionally used for some of the enemies in the game. The first game features "space babies" and "space butt" prominently, and [[VideoGame/DeadSpace2 the sequel]] adds "space raptors". ** Let's not forget the great [[SeriesMascot Space Butterfly]]. May its wings flap eternally, as it dreams the world we live in. * SpecialGuest: ** In the "Eye of the Creeper" video, [=SlyFoxHound=] (from Machinima Realm) drops by to offer Jesse some advice on {{Minecraft}}. And also to blow up his shanty. Later, Sly pops in on an RPG Makers Minisode, only to get shot at by arrows as the crew test out their newly trapped puzzles. ** The {{Yogscast}} did as well for one episode, also trying to give Jesse {{Minecraft}} advice. * StalkerWithACrush: Towards FeliciaDay. Leads to a CrowningMomentOfFunny when they meet on the 27th Game Station podcast. * StraightManAndWiseGuy: Jesse manages to be both sides of this with different people - he plays the wise guy to TotalBiscuit's straight man, but also plays the straight man to Crendor's wise guy. Lampshaded in the 17th podcast with all three people mentioned above as guests. -->'''TB (Inquiring about Jesse and Crendor's Saint's Row LP):''' Who gets to play the incompetent one and who gets to be the douchebag?\\ '''Jesse:''' Oh, oh! I'm ''you!'' ''I'm '''YOU'''!''\\ '''TB:''' Oh.\\ '''Jesse:''' I dunno how it happened, I became ''you''!\\ '''TB:''' This is how the pyramid works... * StupidStatementDanceMix: His UFO Commander song, which was made by splicing a bunch of voice clips from his Game Dev Tycoon playthrough and setting it to very catchy music. * SummonBiggerFish: Tries to invoke this in his and TotalBiscuit's Terraria playthrough, in which he attracts the attention of a Wyvern and tries to make it kill TB. [[EvilIsNotAToy It doesn't work.]] * TakeAThirdOption: {{Invoked}} [[Awesome/OMFGCata brilliantly]] at the climax of ''VideoGame/DeusExHumanRevolution'''s ''The Missing Link'' DLC: When presented the final choice of diverting gas to save [[spoiler:the scientist or the prisoners]], Jesse reasons out that one could simply [[spoiler:shoot the gas-dispersal method]] after wandering around brainstorming. * TemptingFate: ** Lewiscollom (Dr. Slime) declared a Youtube-wide challenge that someone make a StupidStatementDanceMix of an [[MotorMouth inexplicably fast]] sentence that Jesse made. [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7U1aUt7kd8M Here is the result in Dubstep.]] ** [[VideoGame/DeadSpace "No, I'm pretty sure the game's gonna be nice to me.]] [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-aP0BX17imw&t=2m54s I don't think it's gonna be a dick and, like, pull anything crazy on me here."]] ** [[FarCry3 This game has gone to Crazy Town.]] [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KyD8ayZq4k0&t=6m25s If there was a river-shark here, I'll have seen it all.]] * ThisIsGonnaSuck: Pretty much defines Jesse's attitude to playing ''VideoGame/DeadSpace.'' ** After the first big jump scare in the introduction movie. --> "'''OH SHIT!''' ''*Hysterical laughter*'' Ohhhh, fudge. ''*Laughs*'' Ohhh my god, are you kidding me? You guys suck, I hope you understand that." * TooDumbToLive: In ''VideoGame/AmnesiaTheDarkDescent'' part 22, Jesse tries to ''climb inside of'' and ''close the doors'' of an iron maiden. And then he tries to do it again so that he could read the text that appears upon clicking on the thing normally. Not 5 minutes later, he tries to jump inside of a brass bull. Lampshaded by the Co-Dependent girls on both occasions. * TookALevelInJerkass: [[PlayedForLaughs After drinking way too much Irn Bru!]] that was sent from a fan in [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=T2Wdrr5ALnU the 39th The Game Station Podcast]]. #worsejesse ** Also during [[WebVideo/PressHeartToContinue Dodger's]] 12 hour live-stream where Jesse declared war against Dodger. Which led to Crendor, Myndflame, TotalBiscuit, and Husky being casualties of war. Completely PlayedForLaughs but some people took it too seriously. * UnstoppableRage: Seeing the trailer for VideoGame/LightningReturnsFinalFantasyXIII sends him into one during [[http://youtu.be/T2Wdrr5ALnU?t=2h8m22s TGS Podcast #39]] * TheUriahGambit: Jesse attempts one of these in Part 34 of his Terraria Let's Play, luring a Wyvern into combat in an effort to kill TotalBiscuit. This being [[TooDumbToLive Jesse]], however, it backfires, with the Wyvern murdering Jesse twice and wreaking havoc within the duo's base. * VerbalTic: Has a few but the most prominent is "And that's a thing"; other members of Polaris like TotalBiscuit and [[WebVideo/PressHeartToContinue Dodger]] seem to have picked it up from him. * VitriolicBestBuds: ** Jesse with TotalBiscuit. ''Even his video announcing him joining TheGameStation'' mentioned how he hated TB. ** Jesse has a one-sided "love" of Trish. They are genuinely friends though, or so they say... * [[WhyDidItHaveToBeSnakes Why Did It Have To Be]] [[ThreateningShark Sharks]]: ''[[PunctuatedForEmphasis Jesse. HATES. Sharks.]]'' [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?&v=7Eznf_ca8p0#t=100s According to him]], it most likely comes from an incident very early in his childhood, one of the earliest memories he has in fact, where a babysitter plunked him down in front of a movie so she could talk to her boyfriend or something. Said movie was {{Film/Jaws 2}}. * WiseGuy: ** To TotalBiscuit's StraightMan, mostly. ** But also to Creator/HuskyStarcraft's... [[TheUnfunny deadpan void]] [[TheStoic of silence]]. * YourMom: Subverted in the "Clint, Cox, and Crendor Play ''VideoGame/DiabloIII''" video. -->'''Crendor:''' Who're you talking to?\\ '''Jesse:''' Your ''momma''!\\ '''Crendor:''' ...what'd she say?\\ '''Jesse:''' ...she'll be home soon. She loves you. ---- [[AndTheAdventureContinues "And as always...to be continued."]] ----[[Music/OzzyOsbourne MISTER CROOOOOOOOWWLEY]]

''{{Troy}}'', that's the movie. * CatchPhrase: See the bottom of this page. ** "[[MadLibsCatchPhrase X]] in yo' face!" ** "Hey-o." ** [[AntiHero "Bad Dovahkiin!"]] ** [[VideoGame/DukeNukemForever "HYUP!"]] ** "Savin' the day the VideoGame/{{McPixel}} way!" *** "Well that just happened..." ** "[[{{Dishonored}} Aaaand...Q!!!]]" *** "And E!!!" ** [[ChivalryMedievalWarfare "FALRAK IS A DOOB!"]] ** "Bwap!"- Used while shooting people with a sniper rifle in ''VideoGame/FarCry3'' and ''VideoGame/BioShockInfinite,'' or the Force Gun in ''VideoGame/DeadSpace2'' ** [[VideoGame/BioShockInfinite "Take that, Devil!"]] * ChainmailBikini: While trying to [[VideoGame/GameDevTycoon name a Fantasy/Adventure game]], he settles on "Ladies in Tiny metal". -->'''Jesse:''' *laughs* I imagine you know what I was going for there, but, like, their armor--*continues cracking up* * CouchGag: The end of every ''VideoGame/SaintsRowTheThird'' video has Jesse and/or Crendor trying to rap (with varying levels of success). * CuckoolanderCommentator: Especially when paired up with more serious players like [[TheCynicalBrit TotalBiscuit]]. * CulturalTranslation: In the fourth episode of TheGameStation Podcast, Jesse, [[TotalBiscuit and]] [[WebVideo/PressHeartToContinue friends]] conclude that Canada either has ultra-violent or super-stereotypically-nice versions of games. * DeadpanSnarker: ** "Lizzie" (Derkeethus) is described in this way in the ''Skyrim'' playthrough, often keeping a straight face in the middle of Jesse's silly antics and mentally retorting to Jesse's bad jokes. But he doesn't actually talk outside of "personality". ** Kiskae would like to think of himself as one, making subtle remarks in the chat for anyone with a keen eye during the "RPG Makers" videos and invoking the trope directly with a ShoutOut to this very page. But like Lizzie, he doesn't actually talk, and it's difficult to communicate sarcasm through telepathy and texts. * DespairEventHorizon: [[InvokedTrope Invoked]] in his VideoGame/TheElderScrollsVSkyrim LP when [[spoiler: [[MoralityPet Meeko]] does a HeroicSacrifice to save Jesse, which happened a few episodes after he is betrayed by Lizzie/Derkeethus. This causes Jesse to no longer care about helping the [[JerkAss people of Skyrim]] and to join The Dark Brotherhood and the Thieves' Guild]]. [[RuleOfFunny Naturally]] this is soon PlayedForLaughs. -->'''Jesse:''' Bad Dovakin! ** On the Co-Optional Podcast, when his followers on Twitter were unfollowing him and following Dodger instead. As one person said: Jesse broke. * TheDitz: Jesse. It's bad when even "leading" the RPG Makers, people doubt his intelligence. -->'''Omzit:''' When Jesse knows more than you, there's something wrong. [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_detailpage&v=OCHfniOYl4g#t=644s]]\\ '''Jesse:''' Seriously. * {{Eagleland}}: Frequently invoked and parodied by Jesse. Especially on the RPG Makers. ** In his ''Videogame/{{Terraria}}'' LetsPlay with TotalBiscuit, Jesse infamously devolved into a bombthrowing Texan with PatrioticFervor as he tried to take revenge on him. * EpicFail: In a few games, but mostly throughout the Terraria series. ** For example, every time either TotalBiscuit or Jesse try to kill each other with bombs. They manage to spectacularly fail and only kill themselves each and every time. It would help if they realized that you can't kill people in your own team with explosives, only yourself. ** And finally, [[IdiosyncraticEpisodeNaming every episode of Terraria]] is called "Jesse is bad at _____" ** The finale of Game Dev Tycoon takes this to a [[UpToEleven whole new level]]: [[spoiler: He loses ALL of his money (roughly $5.5 billion) in about two minutes.]] * FantasyCounterpartCulture: The generic "Nordic/Viking" are in the RPG Makers that is meant to emulate... Nordic/Viking culture. With long houses, tribal fishing villages, and the like. * FiveManBand: Sort of... ** TheHero: [[WiseGuy Jesse]]. ** TheLancer: [[OnlySaneMan Mike]]. ** TheBigGuy: Omzit. ** TheSmartGuy: [[TheVoiceless Kiskae]]. ** KidAppealCharacter: Meeuwes. * FunPersonified: Jesse Cox is a RealLife example. * FunnyBackgroundEvent: [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_detailpage&v=_WRsbesEn4k#t=2378s We figured out where Laelette's head went]] after Jesse [[OffWithHisHead cut it off]]: Rolling into a lake during a serious mob uproar. * FunWithAcronyms: The "OMFG" in [=OMFGCata=] is explained as meaning "One Moderately Funny Gamer". ** [=Backronym=] It originally stood for Ohh My Freaking God, [[WorldOfWarcraft Cataclysm!]], it was changed after the Cataclysm Beta was concluded. * GenreSavvy: Almost as soon as he meets [[spoiler: the resistance]] in ''Dishonored'' he predicts they will betray him. Guess what happens in Part 38. ** Displays a fair amount of savvy throughout his play through of ''VideoGame/{{Outlast}}.'' In particular in Part 12, he declares, with fair reason, that the next door will reveal the big twist. The door opens into an area unlike any other in the game so far. * HiddenDepths: Jesse was a Theater ''and History'' major in college, and in fact used to teach history to troubled teenagers. If you were in doubt of his History Major, look [[http://doingitwrongandlovingit.tumblr.com/post/29048225757/i-hate-stupid-people here]]. --> '''[[WebVideo/PressHeartToContinue Dodger]], quoting Jesse regarding the map in her room''': "If there's a country I can't find on a map, it's probably because they've changed their name since I learned about it." ** He has a plaque given to him by his former school district as being rated the best history teacher in it. * HolyShitQuotient: ''MetalGearRisingRevengeance'' is already doing this to him and he's only one part in. Best illustrated at the end of the first Metal Gear RAY boss fight: -->'''Jesse''': ''(As Raiden grabs RAY's blade and ''tosses it into the air'')'' Did I just lift him?! ''DID I JUST LIFT HIM?!'' * IdenticalStranger: A rare RealLife example. It was discussed in [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BZazsebiv78 the 6th podcast]] that Jesse and [[{{Yogscast}} Simon Lane]] are eerily similar in looks. * IdiosyncraticEpisodeNaming: ** All of the ''Videogame/{{Dishonored}}'' videos are titled with a "Dis-" prefix. It culminates in the finale - "DIS is the End". Averted, however, in the DLC, which has no such system. To be fair, by this point, Jesse has exhausted every possibility of "Dis-" prefixes. ** Every episode of ''VideoGame/FarCry3'' is named after an episode of ''Series/{{Lost}}.'' * IDontLikeTheSoundOfThatPlace: Jesse plays with this in ''VideoGame/DiabloIII'', questioning why anyone would want to live in a place called the Fields of Misery. --> '''Jesse as father:''' Come on kids, we're moving to the Fields of Misery!\\ '''As kids:''' Yay!! * IJustShotMarvinInTheFace: Meeuwes during their Payday: The Heist series. * InnocentInnuendo: Jesse drops them on occasions. * InsistentTerminology: ** He keeps calling Ghostz_eu 'Comrade Creeper' when his avatar is essentially a communist ''slime''. Ghostz used to correct him before but now has given up. He still refers to Lewis' avatar, the same but in a lab coat, as "Dr. Slime", and upon the FridgeLogic being pointed out to him in an episode, it's become evident that he's continuing to do it [[ItAmusedMe to prompt]] [[RunningGag angry buttclenches]] [[ItAmusedMe from many of the viewers]]. ** He also calls [[Videogame/TheElderScrollsVSkyrim Derkeethus]] "Lizzie", due to his [[LizardFolk apperance]]. * KleptomaniacHero: Much to the [[RunningGag butt-clenching]] of fans and friends alike (either for too much of this or too little), Jesse plays his characters this way. See his LetsPlay of ''VideoGame/DeusExHumanRevolution'', ''TheWitcher2'', ''[[Videogame/{{Rage}} RAGE]]'', ''Skyrim'', ''{{Dishonored}}''... actually, see any playthrough with a looting system. * LargeHam: After all, he is [[WorldofWarcraft CRIMNOX THE SORCERER!]] ** And [[GunsOfIcarusOnline SKY CAPTAIN MAXIMILLIAN VALENTINE!]] [[DepartmentOfRedundancyDepartment CAPTAIN OF THE SKY!]] * ManOfAThousandVoices: Jesse is actually a professional voice actor (having around 4 notable voice personas with the rest being a mashup from them or movie references). * MisplacedNationalism: Invoked and parodied by the crew (especially the RPG Makers), because of how there's just as many Europeans as Americans working together. Even though they're all good friends having fun, there's very likely to be some mention of another country followed by pointing and laughing. Especially [[ButtMonkey Denmark]] and [[{{Eagleland}} America]]. * MissingEpisode: The three lost ''Videogame/{{Terraria}}'' videos. All of them had the videos lost (the second and third by accidental deletion on TB's part) but the audio saved, and TB has released the second and third lost episodes (meant to be before episode 32) as an [[http://www.cynicalbrit.com/audio/terraria_lostepisodes.mp3 audio podcast]]. The first one, meant to be before episode 13, has not been released, according to TB the audio is so corrupted it's irrepairable. * NationalStereotypes: ** Numerous are played with. Especially prominent in the RPG Makers series, where half the on-screen cast is from America and an increasing majority are from mainland Europe: they ''will'' jibe on stereotypes, such as Omzit demanding that Jesse "give him his money" because of America's debt. ** Jesse in return has an exaggerated "Durka durka"-type voice impression of Sweden, Holland, Finland, and ''even Germany''. ** Also includes self-lampooning, such as Mike's legendary ironic phrase "Trust us, we're Americans." * NonIndicativeName: While [=OMFGCata=] obviously stood for "OMFG + [[VideoGame/WorldOfWarcraft Cataclysm]]", the channel has since expanded into general gaming content, though ''VideoGame/WorldOfWarcraft'' content is still prominent. As Jesse has posted on his FAQ on top of the channel box, [=OMFGCata=] stands solely for ''VideoGame/WorldOfWarcraft'' in the same way that TotalHalibut is about fishing. It has now been extended to, as of the second Game Station Podcast, "One Moderately Funny Gamer Constantly Annoying Those Around." * OlderThanTheyLook: ** Jesse is, unbelievably enough, a 30 year old man who still keeps in step with teenagers today on internet fads. Lampshaded by TotalBiscuit, who is 27 and ''still'' more mature than Jesse, in their ''Videogame/{{Terraria}}'' LetsPlay. ** Further Lampshaded in the 6th Podcast, when Jesse comments that TB sounds like an old man reminiscing on the old days of online play, TB snarks that among he, Jesse [[spoiler:and [[{{Yogscast}} Simon]] together]], he's the youngest male there. ** Jesse has started transcending into ManChild territory with the 8th podcast, when he showcased a video by Lucahjan that contained nothing but testicle jokes, and TB starts questioning his maturity. --> '''TagLine''': Jesse Cox, he's hip to the kids! * OneOfUs: He refers to RealIsBrown in the first episode of his OmikronTheNomadSoul LP. * OnlySaneMan: ''Jesse himself'' acts as this, surprisingly, when put together with Clint Hackleman from Myndflame, [[GenkiGirl Chiib]] and [[{{Cloudcuckoolander}} Trish]] from [[GamerGirl Co-Dependent]], [[MyFriendsAndZoidberg and]] [[WiseGuy Crendor]], although he occasionally slips back into his usual quirky self. Footage [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uq9pL46MlCs here]] and [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_i-i7jpIh6U here]] cements it. * PatrioticFervour: Briefly becomes a patriotic, bomb-throwing Texan in his Terraria series. * RunningGag: ** Can you hit a lick on some brick and go ham on it? ** Meeuwes has diamonds on his neck, bitch. Seen mostly in his Minecraft skin. ** ''Danish?!'' ** Omzit and his supposed diet of shark balls. ** Cloud [=McLongfoot=]. ** [[FanWank '"Oooh! My butthole is so clenched with anger!"']] [[invoked]] ** Jesse's and TotalBiscuit's ineptitude with explosives in their ''Videogame/{{Terraria}}'' LetsPlay. ** Jesse constantly falling to his death in ''Videogame/{{Terraria}}''. Especially after TB got a Lucky Horseshoe that he had earlier promised to give to Jesse to ''prevent'' such occurances. ** When he was doing videos of the [[VideoGame/WorldOfWarcraft Worgen starting zone]] in the Cataclysm beta, any mention or meeting with [[BadassNormal Darius Crowley]] is accompanied by a clip of "[[Music/OzzyOsbourne MISTER CROOOOOOOOWWLEY]]" *bum bum bum* Later on, in any number of different videos on a variety of games, Jesse would break out a verbal "MISTER CROOOOOOOOWWLEY! BUM BUM BUM!" whenever the name "Crowley" makes an appearance. ** "Oh, Garlic! I can use that for crafting!" ** His playthrough of ''VideoGame/DeadSpace'' had him jumping in fright whenever the other two crew members contacted him, eventually driving him to scream "STOP DOING THAT!" at one of them when it happened for the umpteenth time. * RuleThirtyFourCreatorReactions: Jesse knows there is Rule 34 about him and TB, and his response: Write more and add tentacles and ''{{Warcraft}}'' females. TB's response, meanwhile, is a FlatWhat and declaration of losing the will to live (more-so than usual with Jesse). * ScreamsLikeALittleGirl: Jesse in his ''VideoGame/AmnesiaTheDarkDescent'' LetsPlay, starting at part 20. * SeinfeldianConversation: Basically the whole ''VideoGame/{{Terraria}}'' series with [=TB=], and a significant portion of the ''[[VideoGame/SaintsRowTheThird Saints Row]]'' series with Crendor. Ironically, Jesse claims these are his pet peeve when watching gameplay videos, since he thinks the game should be the focus instead of just a background for whatever you feel like talking about. * SelfDeprecation: The 6th podcast (a.k.a. the one with [[{{Yogscast}} Simon]]), Jesse wholeheartedly declares that that episode was his 'last day on the internet', himself as 'the American Simon', and that [to Simon] ''"I'll never be better than you!!"'' [[spoiler:[[BlatantLies Oh, come on, you know he's lying]]!]] * SerialEscalation: ** Just look at the progress that has been made in the [[{{Minecraft}} RPG Makers series.]] ** Jesse intends to do everything there is to do in Skyrim. His response to those who doubt him? ''Bitch, please, I'm doing everything.'' * ShockAndAwe: If there's a skill/spell in a game that lets you use lightning, most likely Jesse will be using it. And he ''will'' say [[StarWars UNLIMITED! POWAAAAH!]] * ShoutOut: Mentions that [[Franchise/ANightmareOnElmStreet Freddy]], [[Franchise/FridayThe13th Jason]], ''both'' Franchise/{{Alien}} and Franchise/{{Predator}}, and even the sharks that ate SamuelLJackson in ''Film/DeepBlueSea'' can climb ladders when the Co-Dependent girls ask what monsters can in his ''VideoGame/AmnesiaTheDarkDescent'' LetsPlay, part 20. * ShownTheirWork: Jesse knows quite a bit of American history while playing ''VideoGame/BioShockInfinite''. He notes that the "Battle of Wounded Knee" was really a massacre of innocent families, and is able to name a great deal of presidents when he encounters the Patriot Heavy Hitters. ** Worth noting he knows these things having been a history teacher in the past. * SoreLoser: Jesse does NOT take defeat well. He has stated many times that the primary reason he refuses to play competitive games is because it stresses him beyond tolerable levels and that losing, especially in front of [[FanDumb an audience,]] makes him incredibly depressed. * SpaceX: Used in the description for his [[Franchise/DeadSpace Dead Space series]], and occasionally used for some of the enemies in the game. The first game features "space babies" and "space butt" prominently, and [[VideoGame/DeadSpace2 the sequel]] adds "space raptors". ** Let's not forget the great [[SeriesMascot Space Butterfly]]. May its wings flap eternally, as it dreams the world we live in. * SpecialGuest: ** In the "Eye of the Creeper" video, [=SlyFoxHound=] (from Machinima Realm) drops by to offer Jesse some advice on {{Minecraft}}. And also to blow up his shanty. Later, Sly pops in on an RPG Makers Minisode, only to get shot at by arrows as the crew test out their newly trapped puzzles. ** The {{Yogscast}} did as well for one episode, also trying to give Jesse {{Minecraft}} advice. * StalkerWithACrush: Towards FeliciaDay. Leads to a CrowningMomentOfFunny when they meet on the 27th Game Station podcast. * StraightManAndWiseGuy: Jesse manages to be both sides of this with different people - he plays the wise guy to TotalBiscuit's straight man, but also plays the straight man to Crendor's wise guy. Lampshaded in the 17th podcast with all three people mentioned above as guests. -->'''TB (Inquiring about Jesse and Crendor's Saint's Row LP):''' Who gets to play the incompetent one and who gets to be the douchebag?\\ '''Jesse:''' Oh, oh! I'm ''you!'' ''I'm '''YOU'''!''\\ '''TB:''' Oh.\\ '''Jesse:''' I dunno how it happened, I became ''you''!\\ '''TB:''' This is how the pyramid works... * StupidStatementDanceMix: His UFO Commander song, which was made by splicing a bunch of voice clips from his Game Dev Tycoon playthrough and setting it to very catchy music. * SummonBiggerFish: Tries to invoke this in his and TotalBiscuit's Terraria playthrough, in which he attracts the attention of a Wyvern and tries to make it kill TB. [[EvilIsNotAToy It doesn't work.]] * TakeAThirdOption: {{Invoked}} [[Awesome/OMFGCata brilliantly]] at the climax of ''VideoGame/DeusExHumanRevolution'''s ''The Missing Link'' DLC: When presented the final choice of diverting gas to save [[spoiler:the scientist or the prisoners]], Jesse reasons out that one could simply [[spoiler:shoot the gas-dispersal method]] after wandering around brainstorming. * TemptingFate: ** Lewiscollom (Dr. Slime) declared a Youtube-wide challenge that someone make a StupidStatementDanceMix of an [[MotorMouth inexplicably fast]] sentence that Jesse made. [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7U1aUt7kd8M Here is the result in Dubstep.]] ** [[VideoGame/DeadSpace "No, I'm pretty sure the game's gonna be nice to me.]] [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-aP0BX17imw&t=2m54s I don't think it's gonna be a dick and, like, pull anything crazy on me here."]] ** [[FarCry3 This game has gone to Crazy Town.]] [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KyD8ayZq4k0&t=6m25s If there was a river-shark here, I'll have seen it all.]] * ThisIsGonnaSuck: Pretty much defines Jesse's attitude to playing ''VideoGame/DeadSpace.'' ** After the first big jump scare in the introduction movie. --> "'''OH SHIT!''' ''*Hysterical laughter*'' Ohhhh, fudge. ''*Laughs*'' Ohhh my god, are you kidding me? You guys suck, I hope you understand that." * TooDumbToLive: In ''VideoGame/AmnesiaTheDarkDescent'' part 22, Jesse tries to ''climb inside of'' and ''close the doors'' of an iron maiden. And then he tries to do it again so that he could read the text that appears upon clicking on the thing normally. Not 5 minutes later, he tries to jump inside of a brass bull. Lampshaded by the Co-Dependent girls on both occasions. * TookALevelInJerkass: [[PlayedForLaughs After drinking way too much Irn Bru!]] that was sent from a fan in [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=T2Wdrr5ALnU the 39th The Game Station Podcast]]. #worsejesse ** Also during [[WebVideo/PressHeartToContinue Dodger's]] 12 hour live-stream where Jesse declared war against Dodger. Which led to Crendor, Myndflame, TotalBiscuit, and Husky being casualties of war. Completely PlayedForLaughs but some people took it too seriously. * UnstoppableRage: Seeing the trailer for VideoGame/LightningReturnsFinalFantasyXIII sends him into one during [[http://youtu.be/T2Wdrr5ALnU?t=2h8m22s TGS Podcast #39]] * TheUriahGambit: Jesse attempts one of these in Part 34 of his Terraria Let's Play, luring a Wyvern into combat in an effort to kill TotalBiscuit. This being [[TooDumbToLive Jesse]], however, it backfires, with the Wyvern murdering Jesse twice and wreaking havoc within the duo's base. * VerbalTic: Has a few but the most prominent is "And that's a thing"; other members of Polaris like TotalBiscuit and [[WebVideo/PressHeartToContinue Dodger]] seem to have picked it up from him. * VitriolicBestBuds: ** Jesse with TotalBiscuit. ''Even his video announcing him joining TheGameStation'' mentioned how he hated TB. ** Jesse has a one-sided "love" of Trish. They are genuinely friends though, or so they say... * [[WhyDidItHaveToBeSnakes Why Did It Have To Be]] [[ThreateningShark Sharks]]: ''[[PunctuatedForEmphasis Jesse. HATES. Sharks.]]'' [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?&v=7Eznf_ca8p0#t=100s According to him]], it most likely comes from an incident very early in his childhood, one of the earliest memories he has in fact, where a babysitter plunked him down in front of a movie so she could talk to her boyfriend or something. Said movie was {{Film/Jaws 2}}. * WiseGuy: ** To TotalBiscuit's StraightMan, mostly. ** But also to Creator/HuskyStarcraft's... [[TheUnfunny deadpan void]] [[TheStoic of silence]]. * YourMom: Subverted in the "Clint, Cox, and Crendor Play ''VideoGame/DiabloIII''" video. -->'''Crendor:''' Who're you talking to?\\ '''Jesse:''' Your ''momma''!\\ '''Crendor:''' ...what'd she say?\\ '''Jesse:''' ...she'll be home soon. She loves you. ---- [[AndTheAdventureContinues "And as always...to be continued."]] ----[[Music/OzzyOsbourne MISTER CROOOOOOOOWWLEY]][[redirect:Creator.JesseCox]]

Secret of Mana live stream has finished as of 8/17/13. So What Could Have Been is now What Has Been.
* WhatCouldHaveBeen: Years ago Jesse made a big announcement that he was planning to do an LP of SecretOfMana, which he said was one of his favorite games of all time. Never ended up happening. But he has since announced that he is doing a full livestream of hte game on the anniversy of the game
