    What happened to Escape to the Movies and Big Picture?

    I noticed that Escape to the Movies and Big Picture are no longer on the weekly schedule on the front page. What gives? Pleeeeaaase don't tell me that Escapist is cutting MovieBob now too. That would mean that Zero Punctuation is the only reason I'm still coming this heap of ads and click-bait...

    Can't watch videos or edit profile...

    If that's the case then it was certainly nothing I did. I have no browser add ons but I am using Google Chrome and that thing is like a browser addon that came to life. :P At any rate, thanks for the help. I reinstalled Java and it seems to be working now :)

    Cool. Thanks for the heads up. I wanted to quote you but that seems to be disfunctional as well. Also, it seems like this is something affecting the whole site and everyone is having issues so I don't know that I even needed to say anything :)

    Can't watch videos or edit profile...

    Every video I try to watch is broken because the ad never loads. The code for the videos seem to be fine but they just keep waiting for an ad source that never appears. Also I'm unable to do anything with my badges. I guess you're supposed to be able to drag and drop them in your profile? Not...

    Dungeon Keeper 2, thoughts, feelings and HELP!

    Thanks for the heads up. I'll check into that. I was actually getting the same problem you described while playing on my server machine. If I play for more than about an hour on the same map it just dumps me to the desktop, even after saving and loading. It's certainly an odd problem. I play...

    Dungeon Keeper 2, thoughts, feelings and HELP!

    I apologize in advance for my terrible grammar. Years of manual labor with no time for anything but video games and family have taken their toll on my writing skills. So with all this talk about a new Dungeon Keeper game being shat out by Electronic Arts and an epic indie sequel on the way in...

    What the Bieber?

    So I watched the new Yahtzee video and had no issues. But then I went to hit up his review of GTA5 and I had to watch this minute and a half trailer for some Justin Bieber movie. Ok, no biggie. But then I went to watch the review for Arkham Origins, because I was thinking of getting it, and up...

    Are Men Allowed To Be Offended?

    I'm a white, male and I get discriminated against all the time. But it's not because of my race or gender. Usually it's because I have the sheer GALL of being a video game player or because of my love for unusual board games. Every once in a while I treated differently because of my martial arts...

    American Football (NO SOCCER)

    I was born in Philly and even though I've lived in Lancaster County, PA my whole life, Philadelphia still has a special place in my heart. So yeah, totally an Eagles fan.

    A question for PC Gamers. Why all the hostility towards console gamers/gaming?

    Who are you talking about? I know tons of guys who love their "PC" but they sure as hell can't afford to go around buying consoles. I suppose it's different depending on where you live, though. But I'm still trying to save up for a GTX 650 card just so I can play freaking Space Hulk and Natural...

    A question for PC Gamers. Why all the hostility towards console gamers/gaming?

    Speaking as someone who grew up playing games on home computers and as someone who used to program games for home computers, I have no clue. I've seen this as well and it's really just silly. If I had to guess I'd say that it's maybe because of the shift of attention in recent years. Back in the...

    Old Games you remember playing but can't remember the name of.

    Thanks. You seem to have all the answers :)

    Don't let vocal minorties paint a picture of an entire fanbase

    For me it's Halo and Counter-Strike. Also, I think this goes beyond just gaming. I'm a pasty, white, super-nerd of a human being but I'm also a master of several forms of martial arts. I can remember, as a young teen, countless slack-jawed stares from surprised jocks and "cool" kids who thought...

    Old Games you remember playing but can't remember the name of.

    You need to describe the actual gameplay better. It sounds like the game Fate based on your description. Fate has a front end app you have to load to get it running. The same people later made the more popular series of Torchlight.
