    MovieBob leaving The Escapist

    I don't know, that's still insulting a LARGE facet of a community. And considering how radical Bob is in his beliefs, especially how easily he throws around the douchebag and dudebro label, it's a little worrying how MANY people he's insulting.

    MovieBob leaving The Escapist

    What's the qualifier for being a "gamer"? Do the "dudebros" play video games? Yes Do "gamers" play video games? Yes Then I'm tempted to say they're gamers and there's nothing wrong with what they do. What is wrong is how the gaming community shuts out certain franchises as being...

    MovieBob leaving The Escapist

    Good. I'm tired of hearing how horrible middle America is and how women are oppressed violently by the patriarchy. I'm tired of hearing about how everyone who disagrees with him is a boorish asshole who hates blacks/women/minorities. I'm tired of hearing him arguing about how modern gaming is a...

    Best conspiracy theory.....

    My favorite one was one I heard from my boss a month or two back. Never ceases to make me laugh. "Heath Ledger was assassinated. I have friends in the film industry, and a lot of them talk about the Jewish majority that runs Hollywood, sometimes jokingly, sometimes not. Cause all that money...

    Escape to the Movies: Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles - Kids Deserved Better Than This

    I think you're overthinking the rape analogy Bob. That's Tumblr-tier levels of overthinking. Mikey's adoration of April was innocent, mostly trying to serenade her and dumb stuff like that, which wouldn't seem out of place in a kid's cartoon. Speaking as a fan of the original Turtles, they...

    Tumblr Convention "Disaster" Unfolds at Illinois' DashCon

    No, we're going to indulge in them all we like because Tumblr and its userbase deserves to be mocked.

    Poll: Kill La Kill; a story of sexual empowerment?

    I know I'm late to the discussion of this show, but I have a personal rule that I don't watch a show until it's finished its airtime so I can make sure it doesn't vanish up its own butthole halfway through and walk away from the experience with a bad taste in my mouth. Especially after I broke...

    Who is the biggest Bad Ass?

    Here's the problem... When a human-sized character takes on a being that's three times the size of a planet, it's so insane that I can't get a real sense of investment. It's unreal. A man or woman who can take on something so utterly massive and so absurdly powerful destroys any sense of...

    Pope Francis Describes Internet as "A Gift From God"

    I'll reply to this in order, because it's a Friday night and Skyrim is being a pain.

    4chan. The happiest place on Earth

    Well, Escapist, I've found it. After years of searching, I've found a website where I can truly be at home. A board for every mood, a community of people who are simultaneously hateful and loving, toxic and dynamic, behaving like absolute idiots and yet possessing a glimmering self-awareness. Of...

    Pope Francis Describes Internet as "A Gift From God"

    Hey look, a condescending, holier-than-thou keyboard warrior made a joke that doesn't even apply to this fucking Pope because, hey, all people in an organization are the same, right? And he made this statement on the internet! He seems like such a fun guy to be around!
