Everyone has a dream. Here at the Buttbuddz, our dream is to make a successful and revolutionary game console. We’d like to introduce everyone to our very own gaming device…
The Buttbuddz GAMEBUDDZ!
So, what exactly does the GameBuddz play? Just about every game imaginable! The GameBuddz comes pre-loaded with over 3,000 games, to say nothing of the millions of other games compatible with it!
With the GameBuddz, you’ll never need another console again because of how just versatile our console is! (As it supports Atari/Amiga/CDi/Colecovision/Intellivision/Sega /NeoGeo/TurboGrafix-16/Odyssey/3DO/Commodore/Nintendo/And everything in between!)
The Gamebuddz comes with an impressive 16 GB Memory, a multi-language and multi-functional high-quality speaker, as well a built-in audio-and-visual recorder function so you can easily make a let’s play straight from the Gamebuddz itself. (And it can even connect directly to YouTube so you can upload your gaming experiences straight to your subscribers!)
Here’s footage of the Gamebuddz in action; just look at how well it plays PLATYPUS DUCK GAME. The Gamebuddz runs video games so incredibly well, it puts the most high-end gaming computers available to shame!
Of course, we’re not stopping at handhelds. If you’re gonna make consoles, you’ve gotta play with the big boys; that means you also have to make a home-held console, because home is one of the best places to play video games! Version 2 of our video game console will be releasing very soon; it’s much better than the first version, as we’re partnering with Pepsi to make it.
…Introducing, the GAMEBUDDZ PRO-PSI!
The Gamebuddz Pro-Psi is the best home console one could ever dream of owning; with it’s matt black (not to be confused with “matte black”) tunnel empty shell, mirror paint, aircraft-grade plastic frames, and our patented MANY CRYSTAL PEPSI TECHNOLOGY, there’s no reason to choose the Pro-Psi over it’s competition!
Xbox One? The Pro-Psi will make sure it’s an Xbox None. Nintendo Switch? After you get a Pro-Psi, you’ll be tossing it in a ditch. PS4? After buying the Pro-Psi you’ll just buy four more! Even the PC isn’t safe, as the Pro-Psi will make your games run and play as clearly as the Pep Sea itself! (And by extension, making it the most Fish-approved console on the entire market, too!)
To the first person that not only subscribed to us, but also purchased our consoles you just brought tears to our eyes. Tears of joy!
Thank you so much for your support we promise to continue our tech company and evolve it in the gaming world. After all, we’re just a couple of butts with a dream!
Today, NASA had finally confirmed its plans to send satellites into the Pepsi Galaxy. The organization says it’s for researching purposes, as data on the galaxy is still surprisingly scarce.
Discovered over a decade ago on August 4, 2008, the Pepsi Galaxy is noted for all of it’s planets resembling a certain soft drink’s famous logo, as well as having two different orbiting paths for said planets to rotate on.
Of course, this is by no means the first time NASA has acknowledged Pepsi; For starters, NASA has an instrument named after it that they used with a spacecraft that was heading to Pluto. Pepsi itself was no slouch in regards to heading to the stars either, as throughout the 1980s, plenty of advertisements were made, hoping that the soft drink would make it to outer space.
Eventually, NASA and PepsiCo would team up in 1985 and send a can of Pepsi into outer space aboard one of it’s space shuttles, making history for not just space travel, but for the soda industry as well!
With NASA satellites heading towards the Pepsi Galaxy soon, one wonders what they’ll find out there; will there be Pepsi on these planets? Will there be life on them? How about life on the planets that drink Pepsi? Could they even find a Pepsi Universe!?
Overall, everyone here at the Buttbuddz wish NASA the best of luck on their journey to discover the Pepsi Galaxy. Oh, and we also wish for you, the potential subscriber reading this article, to like, comment, and follow us for more amazing Pepsi News!
Smears go by many names; in-betweens, multiples, happy accidents, outline distortions, sakuga, among countless others. However, one thing everyone can agree on is that smears are the little frames in animation that smooth things out, and speed things up. They’re the unsung heroes of cartoons; (usually) undetectable to the untrained eye, while still keeping the other frames in line.
The smears featured in today’s article have been given to us from the courtesy of the Nobaddy Institute of Fine Animation; only the finest of screencaps (handpicked from the institute’s collection by Nobaddy himself) are going to be shown.
However, what makes this a “blind review” is that there was no context given for any of these smears! After all, the truest form of reviewing is having absolutely no context whatsoever; that way, you remain completely unbiased as you watch/read/play whatever you’re reviewing!
These smears aren’t going to review themselves, though, so we should probably get started already…
SMEAR 1# Kaboom!
You know how sometimes in cartoons, characters explode? Well, in this smear, the poor toon has been blown to smithereens; poor guy… Don’t worry about him too much though; he’ll be back to normal in about 24 frames or so.
9/10: A classic smear.
SMEAR #2: Delicious!
Wait, this isn’t a smear… It’s a long-distance anime cook-out! Just look at those long-distance anime patties cooking on all of those grills; they’re even grilling the buns! The buns! It’s almost like these generic anime background characters are supposed to stay still so we can focus on the food…
Not Applicable/10: Nice purple table, though.
SMEAR #3: It’s all smear!
I can’t even tell who this is anymore; Is this supposed to be Sailor Moon? Bart Simpson? Lisa Simpson? Well, whomever it is, they’ve accomplished the highest form of smear; becoming completely unrecognizable. It’s completely amazing! They’ve become the SMEAR MASTER, the one with the smears and living embodiment the smear itself.
∞/100: Truly Majestic.
Sadly, we were given only three smears to work with; however, they were all very, very good smears. Would we blindly review smears again? Yeah, sure, let’s do it.
(And remember to subscribe to the Buttbuddz and send us more smears if you guys want to see another blind review!)
Board Game Online, the board game that is online, is a time-honored tradition within the Buttbuddz; it’s a sample of many game nights and the catalyst of many of our civil wars. Nowadays, there’s enough rounds of Board Game Online being played that it could arguably be considered a competitive sport around here. (Or perhaps more specifically, a competitive e-sport!)
With every rematch after rematch (after, of course, another rematch), the competitive BGO scene blossoms more and more as a result. As the competition grows more heated, players are figuring out ways to make their rounds more fair, fun, and free from any bullshittery. (E.g. The Hungriest Games.) These sweaty tryhards will do whatever they can to be the victor of Board Game Online!
As the competitive scene grows and the (re)matches grow more intense, the unofficially-official competitive BGO community is already proposing some ground rules for future rounds of Board Game Online. They are as follows:
#1: All Items
Yes, all items. Every single item in the game. Even the sucky ones.
Normally in competitive gaming, items usually get banned; however, they’re a crucial part of the Board Game Online experience. Why would anyone want to ban them if they’re so pivotal to the game-play? After all, items are one of the hugest strategical elements in BGO!
#2: Assassins Only
“Sprint, kill, and sprint some more!” —Specialized Adventuring! Description
A class dedicated to sprinting, killing, and speed boosts gained by killing is the only true way to play competitive Board Game Online; After all, you’re trying to get to the finish line, right? By having everyone play as assassins, not only are you giving everyone a good class to play as, you’re also making everything more fair, as everyone has the same abilities.
Now, you might be asking, “dual-typings are allowed right?” Nah. It’s just assassins; otherwise we’d have cheaters such as assassin-necromancers or assassin-saboteurs running around, and that would completely defeat the point of banning all classes but assassin. (That, and you can’t dual-type the same class; sadly, that means no “The Ultimate Assassin”/assassin-assassins.)
#3: Final Destination
Had the competitive BGO scene come up with seven more rules, we might have a perfectly good top ten on our hands! (Let’s be real, though; they’re eventually gonna come up with seven more anyways… All we have to do is wait.)
As for the future of Buttbuddz BGO matches, nobody really knows for certain how things will turn out in the long run; Board Game Online is still being updated to this day. Will there be sweatier tryhards? Will there be a specific game-mode designated for competitive play? Will there be diss tracks written by the competitive community? …We just don’t know!
However, speculation has already started to arise among the players, as people are making educated guesses about the future of competitive BGO. In fact, let’s read one of them!
The year is 20XX. Everyone plays Assassin at levels of perfection comparable to BGO being somehow set on auto-pilot. Because of this, the winner of a match depends solely on joining priority, which means if you made the game, you automatically win. The Board Game Online metagame has evolved to ridiculous levels due to it being the only remaining factor to decide matches.
Doesn’t the future look great? In the meantime though, competitive Board Game Online is only just starting to begin; things might not turn out exactly like the prediction says, but we, the staff of Butt With A Blog promises to keep up with competitive BGO news updates as they come out!

What’s up, GAMERS!? Today, we’re gonna review a video game, and that video game is Splasher!
Splasher is a side-scrolling action platformer and hydraulics simulator made by the similarly-named-to-the-game studio Splashteam. Also, this game was created by some of the people behind Rayman Origins, so you’re likely already familiar with Splashteam, although you just weren’t aware of it!
The story of Splasher takes place at Inkorp, a corporation that lives up to its name by making ink/paint/art liquids. At beginning of opening cut-scene, the player is treated to a tour of the factory, from its output of potato-based ink to the backroom containing Inkorp’s huge amount of custodians. (Which are referred to as “Splashers” within the game’s sales page descriptions.)
However, things are not what they seem at the workplace, as one custodian (and main character of the game), “Young Hero” discovers that Inkorp has been performing experiments on its employees.
“Young Hero” and the player even get to witness one of these experiments, in which one of the Splashers ends up… Well…
Horrified by what he just witnessed, our hero goes off to save any and all remaining coworkers, who are scattered across many of the game’s levels. Armed with a paint cannon, water, and two different kinds of ink, he is also in pursuit of Inkorp’s boss -the brute responsible for the experiments mentioned earlier- to make sure that his crime does not pay.
Of course, one of the reasons we play video games is for the gameplay, and Splasher delivers; the controls are nice and floaty, yet still fairly quick, and the properties of the inks are a highlight of the game. The red ink lets the player stick to surfaces they wouldn’t normally be able to, the yellow ink lets the player bounce around and reach new heights, and the water is for pretty much everything else.
If this all sounds fun to you, that’s because it is; The inks are very fun to use, even when you don’t have them unlocked, as the design of the earlier levels take advantage of its properties in a way that is still exciting and fun to play with. (And makes you all the more excited when you actually get them!)
Aside from it’s main “play through the game normally” mode, the game also has a bunch of speedrunning options, so if you’re into speedruns, time-attacks and stuff like that, these modes will probably something you’ll enjoy.
To put it simply, Splasher is an excellent video game worth plenty of Pepsi cans. If Splashteam ever needs to put in a fourth liquid, perhaps they should consider adding Pepsi?
Simple visuals that look nice, yet still detailed enough to do Inkorp and its employees justice visually.
The ink mechanics are an absolute blast to use!
Game’s levels are challenging, yet still very fun.
I’m not really sure if this can be considered much of a “coke”, but on lower-end gaming setups Splasher‘s a bit slower and floatier. While it’s still very, very, very playable on them, I wouldn’t recommend speedrunning it on a toaster. (Especially if you’re trying to get the world record!)
Splasher‘s available for not only the PC, but the PS4 and Nintendo Switch, and you likely own at least one of those so you have no excuse not to get this game. Have fun gaming, gamers!
Over the two years the Buttbuddz have existed, many YouTube videos have been made, and many subscribers have been gained. To celebrate our channel’s 2nd Anniversary, we’ll be holding the first ever BUDDZCon!
Yes, you read that correctly; BUDDZCon is our very own YouTube convention (located in Buttsburgh) that’s exclusively about the Buttbuddz, the best channel on the entire site. It will run from March 4th through March 4th (which was picked because it’s the release date of the hit video game Pepsiman), and it’s one party you will not want to miss!
To start off your BUDDZCon experience, everyone will have to attend the opening ceremony, in which Mr. Buttbuddz goes over the growth of our channel, and congratulates everyone for helping us get as far as we have. After all, without you -the subscribers and content-creators alike- The Buttbuddz would not be here today!
After the ceremony, you’re free to explore the convention center, and all of the fun events we have set up. Like panels? We’ve got plenty of them! Featured panels you’ll be looking forward to include (but aren’t limited to):
How To Make A Buttbuddz Top Ten
In this panel, you’ll get to witness the live creation of a Top Ten video, a staple of the Buttbuddz channel. One lucky audience member will have their suggestion for the Top Ten come to life, so be sure to bring in your best ideas!
Mr. Blobby’s Philosophy of Life
His philosophy of life will steer us through; There’s nothing in the world he cannot do, so that’s why Mr. Blobby is hosting his own panel; He knows he’ll show the world a thing or two!
The philosophical musings of John Blyth Barrymore are performed live for the first time, as he spends an hour discussing the significance of the Pipe Strip, a classic work of art among many Buttbuddz fans. (We promise, we won’t get a copyright claim for having him and the soundtrack of “Kundan” here.)
Anime Containment Panel
It was really hard to plan for BUDDZCon this year, and some of that was because the staff got into a heated argument over whether anime should be banned or not; This is the solution to that problem. …Honestly, we’re not sure what to actually do with this panel; you guys can discuss Moomin or something in it, we guess.
Another fun, popular BUDDZCon activity is gaming, and naturally -like any gaming convention- we’ve got some video games set up for everyone to enjoy! Catch our gaming events to have lots of fun, and maybe even help make a Buttbuddz “Let’s Play” or two!
1:00 to 1:30 PM: let’s play a video game. 2:00 to 3:00 PM: Tower Unite Mini-Golf Tournament. 3:00 PM to 7:00 PM: Break Time. (Go take a nap, watch some shows, do whatever. Just don’t play any games.) 7:00 to 7:55 PM: wacky_races_v2 Race-Off. (All participants will randomly to teams RED/”Subscribe” and BLU/”Pepsi”) 8:00 PM to The Very End of BUDDZCon: Live “Let’s Play” Recording: Pepsiman. (Which will eventually be posted on the Buttbuddz channel.)
Aside from panels and gaming, we’re also using the theater for Donkey Kong Country marathons and showing off the best of the Buttbuddz videos from the past two years, so you can check that out if you want.
Of course, all of these fun activities sound great, but there’s still one important question you’re about ready to ask us: How do I get into BUDDZCon anyways?
Well, aspiring guests, that’s why we have all sorts of tickets for all kinds of subscribers! From our budget “viewer” tickets, to our high-end “creator” type, there’s a ticket for anyone’s needs. (We also accept ticket payment in Buttcoin.)
“Hey Buttbuddz, what’s that Meet-and Greet Lottery you guys just mentioned?” Yeah, we’ll let you guys know about that, so don’t you worry about that.
Anyways, we hope that everybody attends BUDDZCon this year, and celebrates the 2nd Anniversay of the Buttbuddz with us! And remember to like, comment, and subscribe when you get there!
On the day of November 3rd, everyone’s favorite lasagna-eater decided to do something nobody would have ever expected him to do; Garfield dabbed on his haters!
“As we all know, Mondays are my haters; It made sense to dab on them,” Garfield explained in his signature thought bubbles. “What can I say? Fridays bring out the boogie in me.”
The only thing more shocking than the dabbing itself is the revelation that Garfield considers Fridays to be the opposite of Mondays: Does this mean that Fridays are the Anti-Mondays!? (Not that anyone disagrees with that… For many people, Friday is more or less the beginning of the weekend; Monday isn’t.)
When asked about what shocking and topical plans Garfield has planned next, the cat isn’t currently sure. Rumor has it that he might dab while using a fidget spinner, but only time will tell how Garfield will surprise and shock us again.
Remember Game Review #1: Kirby: Squeak Squad, one of our first ever articles on the blog? Of course you don’t; The quality of articles didn’t get to “memorable” levels until about two days later. (So memorably, in fact, that we can still feel the waves of the Pretty Cure Content Flood of Summer 2017 to this day; At this point, we might as well give Cure Marine her own pillar/merge it with the Sailor Moon one…)
So what separates that simple, humble review of a Kirby game from our many great articles after it? Well, what if we told you it was an awkward, early article that suffered from being rushed? Sure, the game-play part of the review turned out okay, but the critical research failures within the review were about the game’s LORE.
Yeah, that’s right; Kirby: Squeak Squad‘s lore is a lot deeper than it looks, and -like the original article mentions- is not very noticeable in the game, for you see… Everything’s actually in Squeak Squad‘s manga adaptation!
First off, the manga goes over time and time again that Kirby is not evil. For example, -rather than being up everyone over cake- here’s Kirby spreading the wealth of Maxim Tomatoes and Invincible Candies with Dreamland’s residents, making every man a king comparable to the likes of Dedede in the process.
Speaking of King Dedede, Kirby also offers the great king parts of the plot’s strawberry shortcake if he helps look for it; Kirby sure is a straight up honest guy!
For a game commonly nicknamed “Kirby’s Fucking Pissed”, the manga is somehow a lot calmer; Even the “treasure chest that contains the cake/villain” part of the plot is more sugary-sweet than what one would’ve seen in the game!
Of course, we know what you’re really here for; RATS. Don’t worry, they make plenty of appearances throughout the manga adaptation of the game they star in.
Even Kirby himself liked Squeak Squad’s very own rat clan enough to try and join them at one point in the manga!
There still might not be any Escargoon in the game’s manga, but to say that Kirby: Squeak Squad doesn’t have a lot of lore for a Kirby title is simply a mistake; Squeak Squad has as much of a story as any other title, you just have to know where to look for it!
This article was brought to you by Fivebuddz: Buttbuddz-quality freelancing for only $5 of the Buttbuddz budget! (Or, alternatively, over 500 jelly beans.)
September 18th, two days ago, marked our one-and-a-half year anniversary, and we’re still here; We’ve been through a whole lot of good, bad, and completely average times, but most importantly it’s been so long, we’ve MADE OVER 200 VIDEOS together. And now is a crucial time in the Buttbuddz’s lifespan where we decide if we watch it all fade away, or come together like NEVER before.
Introducing BUTTBUDDZ.CLUB, The Buttbuddz’s very own super community, which is much better than a normal, run of the mill Youtube-and-blogging community!
Aside from our already existing Buttbuddz Youtube channel and Butt with a Blog, we’ll be adding a new forum and subreddit to our empire of websites! The forum is of course, Buttbuddz.club, and our subreddit is r/buttbuddz. These two newest additions are active, fun places where you can discuss anything and everything Buttbuddz! (Did we mention they’re also ACTIVE!?)
If you already have a YT channel or blog, you can also merge with us! Yeah, that’s right; If you can prove you own an officially-supported YouTube channel or blog, we’ll support you, whether you want to be a part of us or not!*
(*Gift only applies to select communities such as the late Toontastic, and maybe a few other places.)
We’re also sprouting the first real Buttbuddz streaming network, The ButtTeam. (Located at streams.buttbuddz.club for those of you who want to check it out!)
You’ll be able to join our network of streamers in mere seconds, just as long as you have a Twitch channel, and are willing to have our lovely Buttbuddz logo clearly visible on your stream at all times! Then we’ll add your stream to our official ButtTeam page that consists of multiple Twitch streams going off at once, which is definitely easy for your web browser to handle, and the page itself isn’t a security risk at all!
With our new super community, we expect to enter a new, exciting era of The Buttbuddz! Break through the haze and confusion to see our true potential, and join our Buttbuddz Super Community today! (Or else!)
For as long as there’s been SpeedChat Plus, there’s been Toon Valley. Despite having gone through many names over the years, it’s become an infamous staple of Toontown Online; Whether one has always known it as Nutty River, or Vibrant Valley, everyone can always agree that it’s almost like a state of mind among the game’s player base.
However, with Toontown Rewritten‘s newest 2.0.0 update and the game finally leaving beta, one of the many changes the team made to current build of their Toontown remake was renaming all of the districts again. What was wrong with names like Colorful Canvas, Stencil Steppe, and Acrylic Acres? Those were perfectly fine district names!
A hopefully-intended side effect of renaming the districts was getting rid of the Vibrant Valley residents; Well, it worked. Sort of. They got rid of Vibrant Valley, but they couldn’t get rid of the Vibrant Valley; It’s just been displaced from its home-district once again, now wandering around from Blam Canyon to Zoink Falls in search of its new namesake and home.
So what’s Toon Valley’s latest incarnation then? Problem is, it’s a lot tougher than normal to find out, as its former populous is currently split up among Toontown’s many districts. Just as quickly as they’ve been displaced, though, they’ve just as quickly narrowed their choices down for their newest home.
First off, they’re not gonna pick a SpeedChat-only district; That would completely defeat the point of being Toon Valley. After all, one can’t make clans or invite people to one’s lousy game show with the default SpeedChat. This means that we know for certain it’s not Boingbury, Gulp Gulch, or Whoosh Rapids; You can’t become Toon Valley if you don’t have the chat system needed for Toon Valley to begin with!
Another clue to figuring out which district would be the newest incarnation of Toon Valley is its color: Blue districts are barren worlds, free from the influence of the Valley, and -luckily for us- make up the majority of the districts. (Because how many people are on Toontown at any given moment, really… Maybe a few thousand at most?)
…As for the one red district that always seems to show up in game, well… There’s a reason it’s considered “full”; It’s currently being used as Toon Valley! Think of as the game doing you a favor by not letting you into, for an example based on the screencap below, Bounceboro, at that very moment.
Another thing to keep in mind is what time you’re playing the game as well; If it’s too early in the morning or too late at night, not a lot of people are going to be online, and as a result, it would be harder for Toon Valley to keep a stable hold on a district; At worst, maybe you’ll just find a small pack of brutes, but you WON’T be finding any massive brute-conventions that end up covering most of Toontown Central.
If -for some unknown reason- you actually want to go to Toon Valley, the afternoon and evening would be your best bets on finding its newest host district. (Do keep in mind that both the game, AND this article are following American time zones, so going in the afternoon/evening might not work for everyone, everywhere.)
With all of that said, you have successfully found the newest incarnation of Toon Valley! …Or, at least in theory, you would have found it; The real question is whether or not it holds up in practice. Yeah, that’s right; We’re gonna go to Toon Valley!
…Oh god, we’re gonna go to Toon Valley.
For our mission, we’re gonna be sending a RAT, a protector of Toontown Central’s streets, to the newest incarnation of Toon Valley.
You see, Rat Jack is already experienced in dealing with Vibrant Toons; He and his boss, Giant Rat, have encountered cats, and even a hacker before! If Jack’s dealt with some of the worst Vibrant Valley had to offer, then surely he can navigate his way through its newest incarnation, right?
…Wait, what do you mean that Bounceboro’s TTC, the only red district in the game at the time, was completely barren!?
We sent another one of our toons, Peony, to the other playgrounds that Rat Jack was unable to cover, and as it turns out… The reason Bounceboro’s been red all day was because of a an all-day beanfest located in Donald’s Dreamland!?
But when all hope seemed lost, it turns out that Toon Valley was in actually Thwackville (a green district) at the time! Rat Jack couldn’t believe it; the Vibrant Valley he knew before was still alive. Perhaps not as alive as it once was, but it certainly was alive.
When Rat Jack returned to the Buttbuddz HQ a second time, he did mention that Thwackville/Vibrant Valley was a little calmer than it would’ve usually been, which he found kind of odd. However, -as mentioned earlier in this article- the removal of the Vibrant Valley district had been causing more than a few issues for its residents. Or perhaps, maybe Rat Jack just showed up during a calmer moment for the reconstructing community, and it was/became FUCKING TERRIBLE before/after his brief visit to the district.
This article, though, is about proving Toon Valley still exists, not about the Toon Valley experience itself. If you’re reading this article, you’re already likely familiar with what the district in its many forms -including its currently-nomadic one- is like; We don’t need to, or even WANT to go over it again.
In conclusion, you can take Vibrant Valley district out of Toontown, but you can’t truly take the Vibrant out of the Valley. Now whether or not Vibrant’s toons will stick with Thwackville, or eventually settle onto another district, only time can answer that… In the meantime though, be careful when going into red and green districts, especially if you’re located in Toontown Central; You’ll never be able to truly know if the district you’re moving to is actually just Toon Valley!
