I had a feeling that I/we would hear from Paul Ryan (Owner, PR-manager and review-code manager for Brash Games) in the near future, because his the kind of person that can’t change his wicked ways. So when I published my most recent update about Brash Games (which I did on the 7th of May this year), I just knew that it was simply a matter of time before Ryan would try to rebrand Brash Games and kick-off a new site. Well, sadly enough, I was right. You see, late last night I found out (thanks Just Lyle!) that Ryan is trying to transfer everything (as in posts, reviews and so on) from the Brash Games site to his new site (gamescan.co.uk, aka “Bonus Stage”, as seen in the picture down below).
In other words, it seems like Ryan’s goal is to start a new Brash Games-like site under a brand-new name and flag (I guess that Ryan haven’t heard of the old saying “it doesn’t matter if you put on make-up on a pig, it’s still a pig underneath all that make up”…). You know, I wouldn’t really call that a cleaver move, because Ryan and Brash Games have pissed off so many people as of lately. My point would be that it isn’t exactly like the Internet will forget about what Brash Games and Ryan have done in the past (especially not the Ex-Brash Games writers who have been treated really badly by Ryan). That’s also why I’m glad that people like KiriothTV took his time to call out Paul Ryan on his past and present wickedness:
“I’m not linking either of his garbage fire websites. Just know that Paul Ryan is trying to move away from Brash with Game Scan or Bonus Stage… nah. I don’t think so, do you?” – KiriothTV
And let’s be honest here. I hardly doubt that Paul Ryan will change his ways with his new site, in the matter of fact. I’ve been told that Ryan is once again removing people’s names from their reviews on Brash Games. However, this time his doing so via the gamescan.co.uk site…So it’s “business as usual” again (as Ryan would have put it), but under a different name and brand. So be sure to memorize “Game Scan” and “Bonus Stage”. As it could come in handy if you ever run into any freelance writers who’re looking for a job, because then you could warn them about Paul Ryan’s past with Brash Games. Other than that, I’m quite certain that Ryan will end up in legal trouble sooner or later. As he just keeps on pushing his luck even though plenty of Gaming sites and Youtuber’s have exposed him and Brash Games in the past.
So just sit back in your favorite chair, grab some popcorn and enjoy the show called “Paul Ryan is trying to bury Brash Games and start a new Brash Games-like site”, because it’s going to be one hell of a ride for sure.
And with that said, what’s your take on this matter? Let us know your thoughts in the comment section down below!
