Phillip "Phil" Burnell (Born April 1982), known on YouTube as DarksydePhil, or DSP for short, is an active member of the LP community on YouTube, which he joined in 2008, and Twitch.tv, which he joined in 2013.

He plays games on a variety of platforms including the PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, Xbox 360, Xbox One, Wii U, and the PC. He also owns a PlayStation 2, mainly used for retro-replays (rarely). A fan donated a Nintendo Wii to Phil, which he used to make Wii game playthroughs. Around August 2011, Phil bought the Nintendo 3DS. On February 22, 2012, Phil bought the PlayStation Vita. On November 18, 2012, Phil bought the Nintendo Wii U. On November 15, 2013, Phil bought the PlayStation 4 and the Xbox One on November 22, 2013. On July 11, 2014, he recieved his brand new, up-to-date Gaming PC (Cyperpower PC Custom Rig) after his previous Gaming PC was heavily outdated and was filled with many problems. He regularly films playthroughs of games on all systems except for handhelds, for which he does not have the means to capture footage, with the exception of the Nintendo 3DS, in which he now has the means via capture card to capture footage directly from the system.

Phil is known to voice his opinions about games and other subjects. As well as doing playthroughs of games, he is a former pro-Super Street Fighter II Turbo player, and he has won and placed high in several EVO tournament events in the past. He used to attend tournaments whenever he could and film/uploads matches from the events; he no longer does so. In June 2012, Phil and his friend John Rambo attended E3; since then, Phil has covered the event from home.

Phil lived in his parents house 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 of 2014, he and his girlfriend, Leanna (A.K.A. Panda Lee), moved to Seattle, Washington.

About DarksydePhil

Over the course of his YouTube career, Phil has had 7 (2 currently active) channels on YouTube. These channels are:

  1. DSPGaming - Main channel (active, primary channel used mainly for his video game playthroughs and fighting game videos)
  2. THEKINGOFHATEVLOGS - (active, secondary channel, used for Hateful Truth review videos, updates, trips, and vlogs)
  3. DarksydePhilFFXIII - (inactive, used to record the Final Fantasy XIII playthrough)
  4. THEKINGOFHATEHD - (inactive, replaced by TheKingOfHateVlogs)
  5. DarksydePhil - (inactive, original channel that he used since the very start of his YouTube career back in 2008, until it was constantly suspended and was almost on the verge of being banned. Channel is now mainly used as a archive channel for his older videos)
  6. DSPStreetFighter - (inactive, formerly used for fighting game gameplay. Replaced by DSPGaming. Last video uploaded to the channel was the last part of DSP's Tekken Tag Tournament 2 fan appreciation)
  7. RedDeadDSP - (inactive, used to record the Red Dead Redemption playthrough/multiplayer + Undead Nightmare DLC playthrough and L.A. Noire playthrough)

Phil also has a twitter account called: @TheyCallMeDSP

Phil owns the "Smark Guys" series, where he and co-host John Rambo talk about WWE events and other wrestling related news. The series was temporarily given to John's YouTube channel, JohnRamboPresents, but was eventually migrated to Phil's full-time vlogging channel THEKINGOFHATEVLOGS. It is also live streamed on Twitch.tv at DSP's channel, DarksydePhil.

DarksydePhil was laid off from his former job (a desk job at Helicopter Support, Inc. in Trumbull, CT) in 2010. Afterwards, he tried to obtain a job as a YouTube partner and succeeded. Unfortunately, his adsense account was banned on his first attempt being partnered due to "fraudulent ad clicking activity," so he decided to move over to blip.tv, a rival video streaming site to YouTube. However Darksydephil's Blip.tv account was banned, forcing him to return to YouTube in early 2011. He currently has a job on YouTube full-time, while working with Machinima, with his three partnered channels: DSPGaming, THEKINGOFHATEVLOGS and DSPStreetFighter (defunct). He also live streams daily on Twitch.tv at his Darksydephil channel.

Project 7

Project 7 has been officially abandoned and no more episodes will air.

Phil started a short series called Project 7 on his old channel, DarksydePhil. It only lasted a for a few videos. He later in late 2011 surprised his fans, by telling them he was bringing the show Project 7 back, and later at a Project 7/ DarksydePhil panel at a convention, he screened it for a select few. It recieved positive feedback. The show's comedy was made up of inside jokes for long time fans, and jokes based on video games that many know and love. As of January 2012, Project 7 had begun on YouTube. The cast for the show is Phil (as himself), John Rambo, Howard, 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, as of late 2012 the series was indefinitely suspended as Respect the Pact had a shift in priorities and were unable to continue filming/editing the series. With DSP's move to Seattle, Washington, it appears the series is officially canceled.

Weekly Video Series

This is a list of video games in which Phil does on a weekly basis.

  • Ultra Street Fighter IV Online Multiplayer (On Hiatus)
  • Tomadachi Life (NIntendo 3DS) (On Hiatus)

Current playthroughs

This is a list of the current playthroughs that Phil is currently doing. NOTE: Whenever he concludes a game, move the title of the game to either the "Completed Playthroughs" or "Incompleted Playthroughs" sections to how he ended the playthrough. Examples would include that on the title of the final part of a playthrough, Phil would simply put: (Final) then some positive or negative comment summarizing his overall experience with the game. Or, if he declares that he cannot continue a game due to certain cicrumstances, the title would probably say on the final part of the playthrough: (Final, fuck this) or some other negative comment.

  • Tales of Xillia 2
  • FIFA 15
  • Super Smash Bros. (Nintendo 3DS)
  • Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic (Currently on hiatus due to Phil being unable to capture footage of the game on PC with his current capture software. He will consider re-playing the game in the future through the Xbox version, emulated on the Xbox 360. However, if he were to do so, he will have to start the game completely over from scratch.)

Commentary style

Darksydephil's style of comentary is brought on by his honest (yet at times controversial as well as highly ignorant and lacking in common sense) opinions and thoughts on a situation in a game that he's playing. He will speak aloud with his strong viewpoints and usually appeal to his fans and new viewers alike. He is well known for making jokes based off of the characters, the story, the music, and events within the game he is playing. Sometimes he will have a duel commentary with his friends (e.g John Rambo, Howard, PandaLee, etc.). He and his friends will sometimes talk about recent events inside and outside a video games and will both poke fun (bash) at the game in general, which also appeals to his fans. 

Problems and criticism

Phil has a lower back injury, in which the disc between his L4/L5 vertebrae is severely herniated. He can't stand up for too long, can't be too physical, and can't sit in a certain position for too long. DSP has had several copyright issues on YouTube. He had copyright strikes on games such as God of War III and Legends of Wrestlemania, and most notably, GTA IV: The Lost and the Damned. Due to copyright strikes, DSP's original channel Darksydephil was temporarily shut down, which caused him to create a new channel named DSPGaming. However, the copyright strikes were proven to be false and actually submitted by game publishers from Ubisoft. As of today, DSP has not had any major copyright issues since becoming partnered with Machinima in 2011.

DSP was laid off from his office job of 5 years in September 2010 due to the bad economy. He has been a Machinima partner on YouTube since early 2011 and has been doing video-on-demand full time as his occupation since then. He first pursued Google Adsense, but was kicked out of it when he received notice from Google that they suspected "fraudulent ad clicking activity" during the period of November-December of 2010. After this, DSP migrated his videos over to another video sharing website named blip.tv, but was subsequently banned from there as well (see below for full explanation). But since 2011 has been partnered with Machinima and is currently a Managed Partner. As of March 2013 Phil also regularly streams on his Twitch.tv channel, Darksydephil, and is currently partnered with the website; as of yet, no issues have arisen with his live streaming. 

Due to DSP's controversial style of commentary & raw gameplay during his playthroughs, and for complaining about the game not working, or game bugs, when at times the issues are his own fault, he has been strongly criticized. However, DSP has attributed this to his comedic persona and has referenced doing similar things since his competitive Street Fighter days in arcades during the 1990's, where he blamed the controls for his losses.

There was also the matter of the controversy surrounding his removal from blip.tv for racist remarks that he made during his Dead Space 2 Demo playthrough, in which he roleplays Issac Clarke (the lead protagonist) as the "last remaining Nazi" and refers to the Necromorphs (the game's enemies) as the "Jews". He alludes to dismembering, curb stomping and throwing the "Jews" into the oven for the good of the universe, remarking the horrors of the Holocaust during World War II. However, upon further research it was found that he was simply imitating a well-known Nazi character from the popular Howard Stern show, and that it was actually a group of known detractors who submitted complaints to blip.tv staff to have his channel taken down for the jokes. Afterwards, these parties celebrated publicly on his forums for their malicious conduct. Overall, things turned out well as he was partnered on YouTube with Machinima.

Since being parodied/criticized by the group "Retsupurae" in early 2013, common opinion on YouTube has turned against DSP. Some gamers feel that his unedited, raw playthrough videos are "not the proper way to create entertaining content." This has led to a movement of "This is How You Don't Play" montages that use DSP's content as a way to ridicule Phil and his video gaming fails. In addition, hundreds of videos showcasing Phil's various comments and actions have run rampant on the internet. DSP claims that these montages have become a "bandwagon movement" of negativity against him, and that they have concretely hurt his business. 

However, thanks to a large loyal following of fans, DSP continues to make a living off of YouTube and Twitch.tv despite all of the negativity thrown against him.

Friends

John Rambo

John Rambo in Project 7

When Phil lived in Connecticut, when he wanted to play a game co-op or for live commentary, he would most of the time ask John Rambo to join him. They are good friends and always have fun when playing together. John also plays Super Street Fighter II Turbo at pro level and won a slot to represent USA at the Super Battle Opera. He had also beaten Phil in the second round of the SBO qualifiers, making it John's first time at beating Phil in a tournament.

He met Phil around 2005, particularly during Evo 2005, where Phil had placed 4th in the finals in the Super Street Fighter II Turbo tournament, and being the only American player on the top list of finalists, while the top 3 were Japanese players.

John went to Japan on September 9, 2010 for the Super Battle Opera Tournament, which was held on the 19th of September. He, like Phil, has a YouTube channel named "JohnRamboPresents," where he weekly does a podcast names "John Rambo Presents: The Show" w/his co-host and longtime friend, OJ.
