Phillip Burnell (born: April 6, 1982 (1982-04-06) [age 36]), better known online as DSPGaming, DarksydePhil, or DSP for short, is an active member of the LP community on YouTube, which he joined in 2008. He used to have a signed contract with Machinima, until March 2017. He posts up raw, unedited playthroughs. His vlog channel is THEKINGOFHATEVLOGS. He used a channel for edited reviews and montages called KOGaming that went mostly defunct in 2017 after views and profit dropped significantly, but became his temporary primary channel for testing if ads would come on on newly published videos in July 2018 due to having a problem with AdSense on his main channel, DSPGaming., which would later be resolved the following month in August 2018, and monetization was restored on DSPGaming, allowing Phil to return and resume his video game playthroughs on the channel.
Phil calls himself a "former pro fighting game competitor", and even placed 4th for Super Street Fighter II Turbo in the 2005 EVO tournament. He has the nickname The King of Hate from this period. Many people believe this is because he enjoys constantly hating on other people and/or video games, but Phil insists that the real reason is because he had differing opinions that were radically different from mainstream ones, in which a lot of his opinions were subject to controversy, albeit using the infamy that many people induct upon him as a way of fueling himself.
Phil says that he is "different than other YouTubers" and he doesn't mind that he isn't as big as some other YouTubers. Phil is known for the large amount of negativity that surrounds him on YouTube; this "negativity movement" began in 2012. In addition, he is known to not be very good at playing certain video games, a statement that he himself has admitted previously. He calls what he does on YouTube a "business". His two main inspirations for making videos online are 'The Angry Video Game Nerd' and 'The Nostalgia Critic'. Phil says that he doesn't care what other YouTubers say about him, but at times he has made videos where he addressed certain YouTubers who called him out. Phil also claims that he hasn't changed since he started posting up videos on YouTube, and that he doesn't watch other YouTuber's content. Phil is known for his classic playthroughs such as Heavy Rain and Fallout 3, during the early days of people playing and uploading gameplay for YouTube. His laugh, humor and style of commentary are famous (or infamous) things about him and his content.
Phil has a serious back injury (a severely herniated disc) that has plagued him from around late 2007 to the present day. He manages this by not driving for long periods of time and by not doing heavy lifting.
Phil lived with his parents until 2004 and then again from 2007 to 2009. In 2009, he moved into a condo in Connecticut, and lived there until 2014. In June 2014, he and his, at the time, girlfriend Leanna (A.K.A. Panda Lee) moved to Renton, Washington, but he and Leanna broke up in late April 2017 after a few weeks of being engaged, and she moved out. Phil now has a new girlfriend named Kat that he started dating in the summer of 2017, but she currently does not live with him.
Phiil posted up videos on YouTube originally just for fun from 2008 to 2010, and didn't expect it to become his full-time job at that time. He made YouTube his full-time job in late 2010, after being laid off from Helicopter Support, Inc. in Trumbull, CT. His original YouTube channel "darksydephil" lost its AdSense partnership in late 2010; he then moved his content to blip.tv, but due to a number of users submitting complaints to the blip.tv staff regarding Phil's anti-Semitic jokes during the Dead Space 2 demo, he was banned. He got signed with Machinima in 2011. From 2011-2012, Phil was involved in stopping bills against gaming, such as SOPA. He got his contract with Machinima renegotiated in late 2012 and began making less money than he was at the time he got partnered, and he made changes to his content. He recorded his gameplay from 2008-early 2013 by pointing an HD camera at his TV screen, and around spring of 2013, Phil started to direct capture his gameplay. Phil then started recording gameplay in 1080p and 60 FPS in 2014 when he bought a new PC, replacing his other one that was built for him.
Phil then announced a new channel for 2016 as part of a 'three pronged plan' (gaming/vlogs/edited content) to move forward. He opened his new channel called KOGaming in early 2016, where he would do his game reviews and edited content, so those who do not subscribe to him out of fear of getting their inbox flooded or those who lack the time to watch his entire playthroughs can enjoy his content.
Phil was caught masturbating live on pre-stream with facecam on May 1, 2016 before he was going to stream gameplay of the Nioh Alpha Demo. He claims that he didn't know that the camera was on. Ever since that pre-stream went live, he gained more viewers and subscribers; however, many YouTubers now make jokes about him masturbating, and the negativity seems to have gotten worse. Other big YouTube channels have covered this incident, such as ReviewTechUSA and DramaAlert. Phil addressed the situation directly in a pre-stream video the following day. Phil will bring up the incident every once in awhile. A video where Phil bashed the game Homefront: Revolution went viral online (including on 4chan) and now has close to 1 million views. He also got thousands of new subscribers on his KOGaming channel.
Phil has announced that he wants to implement changes for 2017. He released another business update video, and he is still nervous about the future. He also downgraded his gaming videos from 1080p 60fps to 720p 60fps. Also on KOGaming, Phil has decided to accept edited videos from his viewers, calling it a "Community submission". He also uploaded the very first officially approved "This Is How You Don't Play" video on KOGaming, but it was taken down later. He plans to release other videos like this in the future. Phil also changed his schedule, streaming an hour earlier each day and decided to try and take certain days off with his then-girlfriend Leanna.
In April of 2017, Phil proposed to Leanna and she reportedly accepted it, but in May of 2017, Phil and Leanna broke up and she moved out. In November that same year, he confirmed he was in another relationship.
In February 2018, Phil introduced his new girlfriend, Kat.
In July 2018, Phil's main channel DSPGaming became demonetized due to a problem with AdSense, forcing him to move and continue his playthroughs on KOGaming, which was the channel he used for edited reviews and montages, but became largely dormant in 2017 due to low views and income. However, on August 7, 2018, monetization was restored on DSPGaming, and Phil has since then moved back and resumed his video game playthroughs on the channel, with Phil stating that now all future uploads will now be in a longer format.
DarksydePhil's Various Channels
DSPGaming – (active, the primary channel Phil uses mainly for his video game playthroughs, fighting game videos and coverage, and is the successor channel to DarksydePhil, his original YouTube channel that he used in the beginning of his YouTube career. However, in July 2018, activity on the channel was temporarily put on hiatus due to it having a problem with AdSense on the channel, causing the channel to be demonetized, and no longer generating revenue on his videos. Phil would temporarily move all of his ongoing video game playthroughs to KOGaming during this time. However, monetization was restored to the channel on August 7, 2018, and Phil has since then returned to the channel, resuming his video game playthroughs on it, in which the videos will now be uploaded in a longer format)
THEKINGOFHATEVLOGS – (active, secondary channel, used for all of his vlogs, including Ask the King, E3 Coverage, updates, trips, and other such vlogs)
KOGaming - (active, Phil initially used this channel to upload edited reviews and montages. However, the channel became dormant in 2017 due to low views leading to low income, but in July 2018, was temporarily used as Phil's primary channel for his video game playthroughs, testing if ads would come on on newly published videos due to having a problem with AdSense on his main channel, DSPGaming, which caused the channel to become demonetized, thus losing the ability to generate income on the videos uploaded on the channel. Monetization was later restored on DSPGaming on August 7, 2018, and Phil has since then moved back to DSPGaming to resume his video game playthroughs on the channel)
DarksydePhil – (defunct, original primary channel used by Phil in the beginning of his YouTube career, but has been replaced by DSPGaming, and acts as an archive channel for videos uploaded from 2008-2010)
DSPStreetFighter – (defunct, formerly used for fighting game gameplay and coverage. Last video uploaded to the channel was the last part of DSP's Tekken Tag Tournament 2 fan appreciation before all future fighting game coverage was moved to DSPGaming)
THEKINGOFHATEHD – (defunct, previous vlogging channel, replaced by TheKingOfHateVlogs, and all of the videos on the channel have been deleted)
DarksydePhilFFXIII - (defunct, used to record the Final Fantasy XIII playthrough, but the channel has been deleted)
RedDeadDSP – (defunct, used to record the Red Dead Redemption playthrough/multiplayer, Undead Nightmare DLC playthrough and L.A. Noire playthrough, but the channel has been deleted. However, Phil did second playthroughs on both Red Dead Redemption and Undead Nightmare in June–July 2017 via Xbox One backwards compatibility minus the multiplayer and on the remaster of L.A. Noire in December 2017)

Also, Phil was playing the game on Easy Mode, even adding much outrage to fans that he couldn't beat the game on that difficulty setting.

Phil will occasionally do mini reviews of games that are much smaller unworthy of official hateful truth reviews, or if he returns to a game and has altered opinions of it. Phil considers them unworthy of receiving scores, so he doesn't score them at all.

Does Resident Evil 7 NEED the PSVR? A Head-To-Head Analysis
Phil started a short series called Project 7 on his old channel, DarksydePhil. It only lasted a for a few videos. In 2011, he surprised his fans by telling them he was bringing Project 7 back. In January 2012, Project 7 was published to YouTube. The cast for the show was Phil (as himself), John Rambo, Howard, and OJ (Other John) as misc. characters, and members of the YouTube channel Respect the Pact. Respect the Pact filmed and edited the show, and added all special effects and post-production. The music for the show was played by the video game metal/rock bands: Year 200X and Armcannon.
However, the series was indefinitely suspended as Respect the Pact had a shift in priorities and were unable to continue filming/editing the series. After Phil's move to Renton, Washington, it appeared as if the series was officially canceled, but Phil announced that he would bring back Project 7, although it will require a lot of work.
Unfortunately, he announced again that Project 7 would be indefinitely postponed. Also, with Phil's severed ties and bad blood with both former friends John Rambo and Howard, chances for Project 7 to ever be resumed is dead in the water.
Cooking with the King/Poorly Cooking with the King
Cooking with the King, sometimes called Poorly Cooking with the King, is an occasional show which showcases Phil cooking specific meals or dishes on camera; the title of each episode, Cooking with the King or Poorly Cooking with the King, is ultimately determined by how well the dish ends up when it's done, if it's any good or not. This series started back on September 7, 2010, and ran until November 14, 2010, on his original vlogging channel, THEKINGOFHATEHD. The series was temporarily shut down due to time restraints/disinterest in not only himself, but also his fans, but was revived on January 2, 2014 on his new vlogging channel, THEKINGOFHATEVLOGS, and is still ongoing, but has no set dates on when new episodes will be released.

DSP Tries It
DSP Tries It is a series that Phil started on October 4, 2010, on his original vlogging channel, THEKINGOFHATEHD. It was started with the intention of branching out and reviewing new or uncommon food products, but he would occasionally review gaming accessories as well, but not very often. The show ran until December 10, 2010, but was revived on his DSPGaming channel on January 30, 2012, was shut down again May 14, 2012, but was revived again on his new vlogging channel, THEKINGOFHATEVLOGS, on December 31, 2012, and is still ongoing. He rates everything he tries from 1-5, contrary to games, which is 1-10. The three main things he judges on food are taste, presentation, and nutritional value. DSP has covered food from restaurants such as McDonalds, Burger King, Arby's, Subway, Pizza Hut, Papa Johns, Dominos, Dairy Queen, Wendy's, KFC, and Jack in the Box, among others.

Smark Guys was Phil's pro wrestling commentary show which he did with his former friend John Rambo back when Phil lived in Connecticut. The show lasted from October 9, 2010 to May 31, 2014, consisting of 131 episodes. In this show, Phil and John would express their opinions and feelings on pro wrestling shows and pay per views, such as WWE Raw and SmackDown, as well as covering the events of what happened during those wrestling shows/pay per views in the week they aired, as both of them always grew up watching wrestling when they were younger. Each episode would often times elapse an hour long or more, due to how deep they would go into their thoughts on each show. Smark Guys started on October 9, 2010, on Phil's original vlogging channel, THEKINGOFHATEHD. When that channel discontinued, he continued the show on his DSPGaming channel, and then continued it on his new vlogging channel, THEKINGOFHATEVLOGS. The show aired its final episode, Ep. 131 on May 31, 2014, and the show ended, as in June 2014, Phil moved out of his Condo in Connecticut to Renton, Washington. Due to distance issues, Phil's Skype issues, and John having real life stuff to do, they unfortunately had to abandon Smark Guys. Although Phil has made no official announcement to drop the series permanently, he has in fact stated that the show could return in the future, but most of his fans consider it to be dead at this point, or, at the very least, on an indefinite hiatus, especially with Phil and John no longer being friends, Smark Guys is most likely never going to return.

The show remained in its beta phase until December 19, 2013; after that he finally worked out all of the kinks in his podcast, and he changed the show to the official Hate Live Podcast, which ended at the end of 2015 going into 2016.

Ask The King
Ask The King is the name of Phil's monthly Questions & Answers video series, in which he answers fan questions that asked on the KingofHate.com forums, on Twitter, and on Facebook. The series started back on November 11, 2010, on his previous vlogging channel, THEKINGOFHATEHD. After that channel became an archive the series was moved to DSPGaming, and it was then moved to THEKINGOFHATEVLOGS after the new vlogging channel was created. The series was previously called DSP's Inbox, in which he'd answer questions sent to his email; before that, however, he had a short series called Friend Request Ridicule, in which he'd go on Xbox Live and make fun of the comments that those giving him friend requests left, due to him constantly telling people not to send him friend requests. After deciding that he didn't want to be that big of an asshole to his fans anymore he transformed that into DSP's Inbox, and that was eventually transformed into Ask The King, which is what his fans, both new and longtime fans alike, know it as today. He uploads new episodes, usually, the final Thursday of every month, and usually has 3-4 parts during each session.
Travel Vlogs/Other Special Vlogs
Whenever Phil does any major traveling he records vlog-style videos of them and uploads them to YouTube. He has done this almost since he started YouTube, so he has travel vlogs on his original darksydephil channel, on his THEKINGOFHATEHD channel, on his DSPGaming channel, and now on his THEKINGOFHATEVLOGS channel. These vlogs include when he goes on vacation, when he goes to a gaming convention, as well as when he moved crom CT to Washingtom State/traveled their before he moved to check out the area. Other than travel vlogs he also does Christmas Tree lighting vlogs every year and posts them up on YouTube, too.
Back on his old darksydephil channel, Phil was known to have done some movie reviews. They weren't very many, and he since hasn't done any of them on any of his other channels. He's said that he could revive the series in the future but has yet to for two reasons; one, he rarely ever goes to the theater to see movies anymore, and two, he would need the time for the reviews.

Hardcore Gaming Season Giveaways
The "hardcore gaming season giveaway" was a series of videos that Phil made annually every "hardcore gaming season", as Phil calls it (the time period of around September to December of the year, when big budget games are released). In this former giveaway series, in an attempt to give back to the most loyal members of his fanbase, during the busiest time for gaming in the year, he gave one game a week away to a fan of his. He started by making the introduction video, and the week after is when he starts giving away games. He made a new thread each week on his website, TheKingofHate.com, and those who want to enter have to make a post in that thread; it doesn't matter what you post, and he shows off what he's giving away before you have to post, so it's not a mystery. He then puts the total number of posts, minus his own of course, into the random number generator at Random.org, so that the winner is completely random and completely fair. If someone doesn't respond to their win, he'll choose a different winner in the same video he showcases the next item. Phil is willing to ship all over the world, but he warns that some games he gives away are region locked, meaning you can only play them in certain countries specific consoles. Phil started this series during the fall of 2012, and has done one every single year since; however, he stopped as of 2015, because shipping costs were getting too high.

Release Day Unboxing
Release Day Unboxing was a series Phil started back in 2012 which consisted of a vlog of him unboxing all games that he bought on release day and showing off every single thing in them; he would then upload the video to his channel, before he began the playthrough. These videos were posted on his DSPGaming channel from January 31, 2012 until November 20, 2012, and then on his THEKINGOFHATEVLOGS channel from December 4, 2012 until May 20, 2014, when he shut the show down due to collectors editions not being as great as they used to be. This series was meant to be replaced by a series called Game Day, which he has yet to start.
Game Day was a proposed series that Phil was to begin, having talked about it many times wanting to start. It is meant to replace Release Day Unboxing, where he would talk about a game he's about to a playthrough of on the release day before the playthrough begins. However, in 2016, Phil announced that he doesn't see Game Day happening because he doesn't tend to buy anymore physical copies of games.
YouTube Parody Series
Phil announced in 2015 that he wanted to make a series where he would parody YouTube. However, not much information on the series has been released since it's original announcement.

The Worst Game I've EVER Played: Homefront: The Revolution (PS4)
Many on YouTube have become very critical of Phil because of his actions and/or decisions, for a number of reasons. Some people also don't like DSP for his attitude and/or his personality. He has been called a "hypocrite", "asshole", "elitist", "liar", "manchild", and "idiot" numerous times by not just his detractors but by bigger youtubers, smaller youtubers, actors, and videogame journalists. Even companies such as Achievement Hunter have laughed at DSP. Some people have also called him "the cancer of gaming". DSPGaming was named the worst gaming channel on YouTube by NFKRZ.
When his views began to decrease, he said it was because his critics discouraged newcomers from watching his videos.
After getting SWATed, though both fans and critics were outraged by what happened, he claimed that the perpetrator was inspired by his critics to commit what he called "attempted murder" and encouraged his fans to find videos criticizing him and make a comment about how it, supposedly, nearly got him killed.
After getting a copyright strike against his main channel, he compared the situation to having a gun put to his head, and blamed his critics for what happened.
DSP said that he "could have been stabbed and if he survived, it would be less damaging" than what the detractors did to him in the summer of 2015 with the false copyright strikes and how they supposingly messed with his business. Even though DSP himself deleted the videos that caused him to lower in YouTube's search rank, not the detractors.
DSP moved his content to blip.tv in 2010, but he was banned for anti-Semitic remarks that he made during his Dead Space 2 Demo playthrough. In the videos, he roleplays Issac Clarke (the lead protagonist) as the "last remaining Nazi" and refers to the Necromorphs (the enemies) as the "Jews", whose "greed" caused them to become monsters. Rather than apologizing, Phil instead blamed a "troll" who reported the video, claiming it was done out of jealousy. More recently, Phil has advanced the excuse that he was simply using a "well-known" character from the Howard Stern show, although no can recall such an event on Stern. And while he claims that he has apologized (again, which no one can recall seeing), Phil also stated that it's something only a small group of people care about and that they need to get over it.
Starting in March 2013, Phil regularly streamed on his Twitch.tv channel, and was partnered with the website. After Twitch staff told Phil in November 2014 to reduce his streaming rate, Phil quit the site and started streaming on YouTube, resorting to a primitive IRC chat client, as well as short-changing his paying Twitch subscribers, many of whom were outraged. Several people went on thekingofhate.com and trashed it with nasty images and destroyed the website altogether. Many accused Phil of not caring about the viewers anymore and attacked him with negativity. The whole stituation was described by DSP as a "mess". It took several months before the website was up and running again with a new look, and people had to get used to the YouTube livestreaming.
Phil's sportsmanship has also been heavily criticized. As mentioned above, Phil trash talks his opponents. If he wins, Phil will boast how his victory came from skill. If he loses, he will blame lag, his controller, the character he is playing as, the character he is playing against, the actual player he is playing against, or the performance/connection/netcode of the game. He often accuses other players of watching his stream and counter picking or performing so called "online combos" and after losing will insult his opponent telling them to "go die in a fire" and calling them "a waste of human life". He also claims there to be something used against him called a "lag pattern", which doesn't even exist.
In addition to the problems with Phil's commentary style cited above, Phil often does a very poor job of understanding the controls and mechanics of the games he plays. He sometimes will complain about the framerate in some games, or bash a game for the framerate alone. Often, when a tutorial is offered, Phil replies with "shut the fuck up" and skips it, only to repeatedly make mistakes later, and he blames the game developers for not properly explaining the mechanics. Phil constantly complains about the game not working, or game bugs/glitches, when at times the issues are his own fault, and he rarely ever admits his own faults. He often complains about button lag, his game not registering his commands, or his inputs being dropped, when there appears to be nothing wrong of the sort, and viewers joke and call it a "haunted controller." Phil claims this is his "comedic persona" and that he could be good at games if he wanted to. This comes into direct contrast when he claims to have no gimmick and is the "realest person" on YouTube. He has over the years contradicted himself on whether or not he is actually good at playing games. Viewers have noted that Phil needs glasses, because he often states things that he witnessed in the game that are incorrect, but he was only seen wearing a pair in 2014 and hasn't used them again.
Phil has also been criticized for his behavior and responses on his own forums. He is known for disregarding and breaking forum rules. Many forum users and moderators have complained and even flagged Phil's posts to which Phil responds with an insult laden message and even once wrote "I cannot break the rules. I am the rules".
In early 2015, Phil decided to open a Patreon page, which he has admitted is a donation based service. Even though he had stated numerous times in the past he would never do so and making fun of Angry Joe for his page. Ever since, people on YouTube have accused Phil of only caring about views, money and Patreon.
In addition to groups which Phil calls his "detractors", he also has had back and forth disputes with other well-known YouTubers as well.
TotalBiscuit: In 2012, when Phil gave the video game Journey a much worse review than the majority of the critical acclaim given by others, Phil called out TotalBiscuit for having a differing opinion, as the latter had declared his Game of the Year for 2012. In more recent years when Phil was subjected to mass criticism, TotalBiscuit accused Phil of name dropping him in an effort to seem like he was a respected associate of his. Furthermore, when asked about Phil and his recent behavior in response to the negativity surrounding him, TotalBiscuit expressed his dislike for Phil's attitude and content, citing his reputation of pinning blame on everything and everyone else but himself when it comes to his video game playthroughs. He also stated that although he doesn't like seeing people getting harassed online, he feels that Phil has brought that harassment on himself due to the premise of his content, in which he acts like a "court jester that doesn't want to be taken seriously". Phil responds by calling him an "elitist" and says TotalBiscuit never of his videos for feeling this way.
EventStatus: In 2014, EventStatus criticized many of Phil's actions and challenged his claims of being a "former pro-fighting game player". EventStatus challenged Phil to a match saying he will give Phil as much time to prepare as the latter wants and the loser will permanently leave all social media. Both fans and critics encouraged Phil to take the challenge but those who did were banned. Phil declined and insulted EvenStatus, saying that this was done as a way to get attention.
AlphaOmegaSin namedropped Phil in a Street Fighter V rant video in 2016, making Phil seemingly a infamous rage-quitter in fighting games. Phil claims this to be completely false, and claims he never raged-quit in his life in fighting games. He first addressed this in a pre-stream video, and he got into a Twitter war with Omega later on. Phil then posted up a video to clear the air.
2013 was a very big year of negativity for Phil, including the birth of "This Is How You Don't Play" videos. As a result of this, he posted up a video titled "Addressing the Negativity" which is one of the most controversial things he ever did, claiming that everything said about him was either slanderous or exaggerated, and that those who "hate" on him do so to "jump on the bandwagon". He said that his negativity on YouTube has now become "online bullying." He also talked about the PC that was built for him in 2011, which is a situation that people bring up when it comes to negativity that surrounds Phil.
For his 2013 Christmas Special, Phil created a video parodying 'How the Grinch Stole Christmas'. With his own written song lyrics, he tells the story of how a jealous Troll, who lives in his grandparents' basement, dedicates his life to hating on Phil and creating This Is How You Don't Play videos. But, just as the Grinch fails to steal Christmas, the Troll fails to stop Phil who continues playing. The Troll represents Phil's detractors, at least how he views them, and their supposed dedication to ending Phil out of jealousy, causing the video to be heavily criticized for its misrepresentation of that group and insults. The video's lyrics have also been criticized. In one segment, he sings "If you said this shit to my face, can you guess what I'd do, Mr. Troll?" and plays a clip of Phil punching a small piece of cardboard. Another segment had the lyrics "If I had the chance to be filthy rich and going back in time to prevent your birth...fill up the DeLorean!"
Phil had also gained notoriety for allegedly having recent parody videos taken down with the help of his Machinima contract. The resulting backlash he received from people on social media caused him to go on a twitter meltdown, hurling numerous profanities at each and everyone involved including Slowbeef and TotalBiscuit, the former of which uploaded a video montage of people parodying Phil's persona while the latter took another stab at Phil via a video comment using the writing style of said persona. As a result of the recent drama, Phil's potential audience took yet another hit.
For several years, Phil had been known to bash the extremely popular game Minecraft and people who enjoy it, even using the phrase "you probably play Minecraft" as an insult, though he never played the game himself until in early 2015, in which through Patreon, the Patrons had voted Phil to play the game he once never even thought of playing.
On September 2016, Phil streamed Banjo Kazooie, a game voted as part of the Patreon Goal. He played it for 4 hours and had help from the Stream Chat. From that moment onwards, he never streamed it online again, and instead played the game offline, with many people finding out he was using a guide to speed through the game and know all the secrets. Some people accused Phil in the comments of parts 9-12 of the playthrough that he was using the stream chat for help. Phil went on a tirade at the beginning of part 16 of the playthough, saying that he wasn't using the stream chat anymore after the first streaming of the game. However, Phil did receive messages from viewers who told him certain things in the game, such as using the gold feather power to defeat ghosts, an ability that Phil never used until it was mentioned to him.
Phil abruptly and acrimoniously ended the playthrough for Persona 3, which was a Patreon's Choice Playthrough, on August 1, 2016, being unable to defeat the final boss. Phil got $1,250 dollars for a playthrough that he didn't end up finishing, which has gone on for several months and ended at 166 parts. Fans and haters alike were both upset at this, especially considering the fact that Phil was playing the game on easy level.
Phil has criticized people who get advanced copies of games before their street date and play them before street date, saying that everyone should get a game and play it at a similar time. However, Phil has gotten games in advance himself, and has broken street date before as well.
In 2017, Phil has decided to approve certain This Is How You Don't Play videos for his KOGaming channel, in a similiar way to accepting Community Submission edited videos for the channel. However, viewers have been critical of this choice, because of how Phil has treated TIHYDP videos in the past and what he has said about the people who have made them before, including saying that such video have supposedly nearly gotten him killed and calling anyone who has created one, mentally ill children.
Phil's former relationship with PandaLee has also become a source of controversy. Not only had fans and former fans objected to her attitude and commentary, but there is controversy over when Phil started dating her. Phil has repeatedly insisted that he only began dating PandaLee after she reached legal age but a number of people who claimed to have known Phil in real life claim that he and PandaLee had been dating long before she reached legal age and had simply kept it it a secret. However, the validity of any of these claims from both parties have yet to be confirmed.
Phil's treatment of Leanna has become quite controversial. While many viewers, fans and haters alike, still take issue with her they have also taken issue with how she has been treated under certain circumstances. On one occasion, Leanna was sick and had to stay in bed all day, Phil had her get up and cook him dinner despite her condition. Another time, Leanna had a panic attack and had to go to the Emergency Room in response. Fortunately, her condition was not serious, but Phil was angered by this since he now had to pay the bills for sending her there and publicly said if such thing were to happen again, he would not let her go to the ER. These occasions eventually led to the break-up of Phil and Leanna in May 2017.
On October 21, 2017, while doing a pre-stream Phil was talking about how stressed he was having to keep up his schedule when someone said they had lose their brother and was able to still sleep and cook meals. Phil immediately acused the person of trying to claim they were better than him this lead to him baning them from the stream and he began to insult the person. The day after at the end of a Week in Preview Phil continued to say that it was an attempt to make him look bad and even went as far to say that it was bait and nothing they said was real and called anyone who disagreed with him an idiot. This event has enraged even more people both fans and haters alike.
On November 9, 2017, Phil got enraged at a person on stream who asked why people with different opinions get banned from his chat Phil claimed that it doesn't happen and that anyone who thinks that is an idiot. This incident futher shows how aggressive Phil has become ever since starting on YouTube and since his break up with Leanna as he now easily becomes angry even at innocent questions driving even more people and remaining fans away from him.
In late February 2018, Phil attempted to start a fundraiser stream to help pay off his taxes. However, he received a 24 hour suspension from Twitch, since soliciting bits for financial support is against the site's Terms of Service. He was suspended again a month later for harassment.
In May of 2018, Phil chose to take a day off. However, before he did, he tweeted a rant about Youtubers and streamers getting early copies of State of Decay 2. He said that everyone who gets early copies are "not true gamers", "walking advertisements", and "paid shills" who only do things for attention and money and insinuated that he was vastly superior to all of them. This outraged many Youtubers, streamers, their fans, and even some gaming journalists like Ryan McAffery. The backlash was so immense that Phil was forced to delete the tweet. The tweet in question read as follows:
"Those playing State of Decay 2 a full week early are paid shills. They are walking advertisements, not true gamers, and are doing so soley for a paycheck. I'll be PAYING FOR THE GAME and playing it this Friday just like many of you, and my reactions will be legit as always."
Phil's fans have also become a source of criticism. To counter the rising number of groups exposing or criticizing Phil's actions on the internet, many of his fans have created channels to supposedly expose the actions of those groups, often using similar names. However, the videos posted on said channels are often slanderous and often makes accusations with circumstantial and sometimes no evidence. This has caused at least one channel, DSP World Order, to be terminated due to repeated and severe violations of its terms of service, though another channel with the same name has been created. Other fans, while not creating separate YouTube channels, have gone to videos criticizing DSP and attempted to instigate fights, make similar baseless accusations, and threats of violence. YouTuber AggyPlays once asked Phil to do voice acting for a machinima series she was creating. However, despite accepting the role, she reported that he was difficult to work with. Upon hearing this he accused her of using him to get attention from the "hater" community and his fans soon began to harass her over this. In a separate incident, a fan claimed he had proof that the Sons of Kojima were involved with DSP's swatting; his proof: DSP was swatted on a Wednesday and the Sons of Kojima hold a podcast every Thursday. Attempts to start debates simply resulted in more insults.
End of Friendship With John Rambo & Howard
After Phil moved to Washington, his contact with John Rambo and Howard declined until it stopped entirely. During this time, John Rambo created a Paymeton parody. Many of accused that the parody was directed toward Darksydephil, causing many to wonder what happened between them, but John insisted that, while Darksydephil was a source of inspiration, the parody was aimed at youtubers as a whole who overly relied on Patreon. He also asked that people not make assumptions about events they do not know about and that he rather not talk about what happened to not harm Phil's reputation. Eventually, Phil was asked about it again on an Ask the King episode and said that he has not heard from John or Howard. Phil claimed that he did not know why he has not heard from them and that 'real men' discuss their problems. He said that the only possible thing he could think of was that they were jealous and bitter of his rise in popularity.
John and Howard felt they had no choice but to respond to this and created a video describing everything that happened between them. The original video was flagged and removed by an unknown party though others have re-uploaded it.
John and Howard describe how Andre and Paul, childhood friends of Howard, had attended film school and were interested in starting a project. After deciding to bring Phil in on this, this became Project 7. However, the editing and special effects took a great amount of time and effort. Furthermore, Andre finds out he is going to be a father, making it even harder. John suggested to Phil that he pay them for their effort, but Phil said that he had offered to pay Andre and Paul but they turned it down. However, Howard talked to Andre and Paul and discovered that Phil had never offered to pay them and lied to keep the money for himself. In fact, none of the people involved with Project 7 were given any cut. The only person who was paid was John but this was so he could continue to help produce Project 7 since his car broke down and he needed to buy a used one. Howard was particularly irate that Phil then began buying figurines, a BMW, and other luxury items with the money, feeling Phil was making money off the backs of others.
The same was done with the Project 7 T-shirts. They all contributed in the cost of making the T-shirts but Phil made all the revenue and did not offer any of them a percentage.
They talked about how when Scott passed away they informed Phil and asked him to contact them. However, Phil did not respond but created a monetized video on the subject, irritating everyone in their friends group that Phil would try to make money off of the death of another, and most likely marked the final straw in his friendships with them.
Howard recalled that not long before Phil moved to Washington, he called for a final playthrough together. However, Howard had already made plans with his girlfriend. Phil said that if Howard doesn't attend then it solidifies that they are not friends, so Howard had cancel his plans with his girlfriend. However, once Phil moved, Howard had not heard from him. He would send him occasional messages, but Phil wouldn't reply back.
John also talks about several times Phil ended up saying something untrue about him on a video. One incident was: after seeing comments praising John Rambo's performance in Project 7, Phil claimed that it was all his idea. John and Howard both confirmed that Phil actually had nothing to do with those parts and were irate that he would make a video talking about it instead of talking to them. John confronted Phil who apologized. Another incident was when Phil wished to play Mario Party 10 with Leanna, though his viewers wanted it with John. Phil responded by saying John does not like games like Mario Party, causing his viewers to send insulting messages to John Rambo about the subject. John confronted Phil again who apologized. Both John and Howard say that Phil would repeatedly do things they dislike and he would apologize after they confront him but made no effort not to do it again, leading them to no longer associate with him, feeling that attempting to confront him about it would bear no results.
They ended the video saying that they still wish Phil the best but if he takes issue with what was said he should contact them, not make a reply video but text them. Phil was originally going to make a reply video but chose not to, saying that the 'haters' would twist his words.
On October 26, 2017, two years after these events, during an Ask the King segment a question Phil got asked about a moment that really hurt him personally in his life. Phil spoke of two moments: his breakup with Leanna and the end of the friendship between him and John. Phil claims that the response video they made felt like a betrayal to him and he also claimed that John and Howard never told him about anything he did wrong during their time together putting all the blame on them as the reason their friendship fell apart. This has caused outrage among many who feel Phil is lying to save himself. John and Howard have yet to comment on this.
Break up with Leanna
Phil said that in May of 2017, he and Leanna had broken up but said that he would not discuss the details of it. Over time, more information has been made public about what happened as many had claimed that Phil's recent video talking about her panic attack and saying that he would not take her to the hospital again if another incident like this occurs is a possible reason. In a recent Twitter post, Phil said that it was related to finances and so far has been puting the blame all on Leanna herself. A comment made by a YouTube user who claims to have spoken to Leanna said she told them that Phil would not help with chores around the house. She stated that she did all the work while he refused to help and would only play games in some stream's when she came into the room Phil would ignore her and say "i can't hear you i have headphones on." Many people have said that after living together for years Phil only used Leanna as a housekeeper The SOK said Phil only asked her to marry him to keep her around a little longer. She had grown sick of what had become of their relationship and wanted to be with someone who actually appreciated her Phil has also changed the story about their break up saying it happened before the Hospital trip. Many don't believe this as it does not make sense that Phil would be angry about paying for her bill if they were no longer together. Phil has yet to give a comment on these claims.
Many people speculated that Phil suffers from "Narcissistic Personality Disorder", as he never admits to his mistakes and will blame everyone and everything else for his own problems. An example would be the time when he was banned from blip.tv for his remarks about Jews, he immediately claimed that the report was false and the person who reported him did it out of jealousy of his popularity. Ever since then, he always acted in a similar way to anything that has happend to him saying it's because of the people who don't like him and his fall is because of those who made TIHYDP and other videos about him that brought criticism on to him. He also continues to push the narrative that he is superior to everyone else, and that his style of video making is the best way, and everything else is bad.
