"We have a console tard" I prefer the controller to the keyboard and mouse, and I play consoles AND PC,and that somes up most pc gamers. Saying that, most consolers are twats.

NOW for the vid, DE-REZ, the jack thompson movie was great, do something like that!

Struck a nerve did it? Repeat after me: "It is a joke."

They were making fun of themselves ;)

Besides, $3000 for a computer, try closer to $600 if you put it together yourself.

My right eyebrow lifted high past my hairline at the start of this video, raised by the hopes of a Athene (or at least Pure Pwnage) kind of parody on popular gaming groups in the United Kingdom. Unfortunately, I was left very disappointed. My oh-so-curious eyebrow stayed in that position for the duration of the video, and had to be lured down by the smell of mince pies later*. I think I was initially disappointed by the clan guys in this video. They simply defined generic; which is awesome, except the audience of The Escapist is anything but generic. 'What about everyone who watches Zero Punctuation!', I hear you cry. Yes, well some of them may very well fit into the humour that is being forced upon us in this episode of De-Rez, but unfortunately, none of them actually appear to watch the series so such creative outbursts and characterisation is wasted on a crowd which cares little for such sentiments.

TBH, I thought it would take an original angle, like having a group of knights (as implied by the bloody clan name) stop across the land to play computer games with one another to disastrous results. Heck, you'd think you'd at least be able to afford such costumes when you're living in such grand houses and playing on such 'behemoth' machines, eh?

As always, a great concept, but pulled off with all the grace of a swan amputee.

*Look! I made a funny.

Oh great, now escapist is stooping to the low of turning everything into a console war.

I guess if zero punctuation doesn't say it, then it's considered "serious".

I was gonna comment about the video but what's the point? All the console tards are going to come up and say "I'm offended PC sucks CUZ [insert popular myth here]!" - but then go to Yahtzee's topic and say "LOL UR SO FUNNY. 'Console-Tard' LOL, Hilarious!"

I hate when the computer geeks make us ps3ers and the other consoletards cooperate.
Does nobody know there is a war going on.

The video was not as funny as some of the comments. The video used irony to make fun of the PC gamers while praising the console gamers. Can't any of you see that?

This video (while not as good as others) was good. I am wondering though, what more ideas you can use?

That is half-right, not saying it's also "half-wrong" since you (unlike others) know the general idea of the vid. but, instead of "making fun of PC gamers" they are just making fun of the hardcore tournament going PC gamers. (Like Clan Excelsior - yes, they are real)

instead of a "PC vs Console" this was more of a "Gaming as a lifestyle Vs. Gaming as a hobby or fun time killing activity."

I agree, so far every De-Rez has been an 'original idea' (not one idea streeeettttched out into a series). Hopefully De-Rez can keep this series as fresh as it has been so far - thats the beauty of the series - don't know whats coming next! Keep up the brave work, and expect different reactions/views based on your latest idea/concept.

although I don't really want to be dragged into a flame war, can I assume that by posting here you paid for an xbox 360 and a computer?

haha, pwnd dude.
And its a joke guys, calm down. If you like what you're playing then you wont care what other people think about it. Unless your all your just sadomasochists. Why does everything have to be a war nowadays anyway?

And i enjoyed the video too, seems like you guys are running a bit dry though, hope you can keep improving it.

Lol whistleduck. You're the defacto source on this one, did he stuff for the video ahaha. Anyway, this was pretty good, didn't keep me laughing the whole time, but certainly some good chuckles. And yes I am a PC gamer, so we are capable of laughing at ourselves.

was that dude speaking klingon?
It sounded like he was speaking in gamer abbreviations. Originally, I thought the first thing he said was mmorpg. But after listening to it again, I can't tell what he's saying. The second time he spoke I caught what sounded like rofl followed by...something. I have no idea what his last line was. It sounded like he choked on toothpaste to me, lol.

Good video, I'm more console gamer then PC gamer (Do both though) and found the whole "Console Tard" joke funny and not offensive in the any way. Loved the stereotype of PC gamers, very funny. Not laughing the whole time but deffinitly laughing when you made a joke. Also, where can I get that shirt? Chris Slake's(Roosevelt's) shirt, not any of the other shirts. Tell me please.

Why does everyone keep referring to this console war?

My 360, PS3 and PC have been able to peacefully exist in the same room for some time
Maybe my hardware should become the ambassador of their respective platforms to try and bring an end to the bloodshed and stupidity although then I guess you'd all have to find something else to use to segregate the great gaming community

Is it not obvious that the more expensive the "gaming rig" the better the "gaming rig", hence at this moment in time a PC based gaming rig will always be "better" than a console rig.

Also note that since the same game for a PC tends to be cheaper than its console equivalent, the more PC games you have the better !!

Fact !!!

If I acctually had a good grphics card I would be more of a PC gamer. As I was a huge PC gamer when my graphics card was known as top of the range. As for now, I will stick with my PS3.

Then now is the time to upgrade, the mid-range cards preform really well. For $150 you got yourself a Nvidia 9600GT.

Thought it was good, better than the Jack Thompson Vid, but imo it's a bit slow in parts.

Also whats with the Drawn by Pain advert at the end?

I liked it, but doing the same "Spinal Tap"-ish style every week might get a little old after a while.

Keep it fresh! Hurricane fresh!
