As we all know, Youtube’s supply of such things is expansive. There are more Let’s Plays and reviews and such than you could shake your ‘nads at. It’s like a festival of shit (and ‘zany personalities’), and everyone’s invited.

Meet HotPepperGaming. Since mid-July, these wacky funsters have been torturing their guests with the following simple, twofold concept:
