GamesRadar is proud to announce the launch of sister siteGloob.tv (opens in new tab), the end-all-be-all of Internet video sites. So what's the big deal? Well, YouTube's great and all, but you can end up wasting a lot of time sorting through amazingly (or not so amazingly) crapalicious "Give me that two minutes of my life back" detritus passed off as "user-generated entertainment." Usually to get an idea if something is worth watching, you have to hold your nose and dip into the user comments, which inevitably shake your faith in human civilization to its core with all the hate spewing from smoking keyboards.
Friends, face that daunting task no more! Gloob.tv does all the work for you, throwing out the trash and finding the best videos from YouTube, StupidVideos, TMZ.com, and anywhere else their video bloodhounds can sniff them out. The latest and weirdest are laid out in a pleasing list that's easy to peruse, and eachvideo has official commentary in a couple of concise paragraphs. This way you can get a quick idea if the clip is something you'll be chuckling about or shaking your head at. Of course, you can also write your own comments as well, and post video responses.
The site's official angle says it all: "Result: Instant Garbage-Free Video Community."
Here's a few of our favorites from today, both funny and simply weird:
Bai Ling Hi-jacks the Dancefloor (opens in new tab)
Chocolate Reign (opens in new tab)
It’s Feline a Little Cramped in Here (opens in new tab)
The Crotch Shot Machine Game Show (opens in new tab)
The School of Pick-Up Artists (opens in new tab)
Once you get an idea of how it works, why not put forth some gaming-related videos?
