    Escape to the Movies: Interstellar - Doesn't Live Up To Its Own Name

    I had a hunch this movie was bad. I'm tempted to see it just because I love Nolan's IMAX work but eh, I can probably do without. I've enjoyed most of Nolan's films but I've only made it a point to own the first two Batman's, Memento and The Prestige. Top that off with the fact I can't stand...

    Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. Review - Episode 6: F.Z.Z.T.

    I've been back and forth on this series. Its been a fairly lackluster series so far and I've hated Fitz and Simmons. I was convinced those characters couldn't act. This episode changed my mind on that and made me love all of these characters. Previously I mainly watched for Coulsen and May...

    It Never Ends

    First off I just want to say Movie Bob, you've been added to my short list of critics whose opinion whether I agree or disagree almost never fails to promote thought and cause me to look up vocabulary. I've been trying to make myself complement the writers I enjoy more often. With that...

    Jimquisition: Changing A Game's Ending And Destroying Art

    I like when I agree with you. Other things you could bring up are remixes or more specifically electronic music singles. They often come with a radio edit, original, and extended version in addition to entirely different mixes. I think people tend to forget that when a piece of art is...

    Escapist Podcast: Bonus: Mass Effect 3 With Spoilers Part 2

    Honestly the DLC without some extra ending bit would have to be EXTREMELY compelling for me to purchase it. If the next DLC is just hey we made up a new character that you can play through the game again with I don't think I'll buy. Also the Final Hours of Portal 2 iPad app has a full page...

    Jimquisition: Fighting The 'Problem' Of Used Games

    Again you're rallying against the publishers but the dev's are the ones paying the price for used games. The simple fact is we don't all the games that sell millions of games. The system you're suggesting gives way to a mob rules system where only the most popular survive. I should...

    Jimquisition: Used Games Have A Right To Exist

    Where to start on this? There are a lot of points made that ignore specifics aspects of the industry. While I would never want any individual rights infringed upon, I would also encourage people to support the developers they like by purchasing their wares new. Simple math shows what...

    American Box Art Sucks

    I live in Oklahoma and box art is probably the most disappointing thing to me ever. This in turn makes me want to ignore the rest of the world since they get such better box art. I bet the government really controls the marketing division of America to get us not to pay attention while they...

    Don't Use the Word "Gamer"

    I'm commenting on this again because I've decided I was mostly wrong in my reply. Gamer is a restrictive term and its silly to limit our lives in scope to one word.

    Don't Use the Word "Gamer"

    This is really an odd post. I always look to Extra Punctuation for something closer to what is actually Yahtzee's real opinions on things but this really just feels like a half baked thought. Granted coming up with multiple thought provoking paragraphs or shock-jock rants on the gaming world...

    Role-Playing Games

    Its really hard to consider the "let's pretend" aspect of table top role playing when addressing video games. Especially since any video game is simply giving you predetermined paths. Even games like Dragon Age and any of the Bethesda's are all predetermined so its a bit silly to rag on RPG's...

    Uncharted 2

    Funny, every single game Yahtzee mentioned that he believes has a unique storyline I found to be quite generic storyline wise. I'm not saying I didn't enjoy some of those games, but overall I found the situations and progression of story in those games incredibly typical. On top of this EVERY...
