The face on Chris Slack right before he stepped off the stage before the trailer for Baby Killer was sexcellent. It seemed to say "I'm pretty sure they're not quite getting this. Maybe I should say something else. No. No. I should just get off and let the trailer speak for itself."

The videogame scenes were hilarious.

The baby killing one was a tad to tasteless for me...

But Voiceman was awesome!

What I like about de-rez is that acting yourselvs instead of animating allows less good jokes to be funnier.

I loved this. Bloody brilliance you guys. The Escapist has a good eye for talent.

"I mean if Metal Gear Solid could do it, why not us?"
I was cracking up at that point.

Truly a sexcellent episode. I laughed a lot, voice man certainly looks interesting but loved the 'some people just find assassin games too hard' spin.

Baby Killer wasn't too bad, but it just seems worthless compared to VOICE MAN.
Wouldn't have minded the entire episode to be built around that, actually.

But even then, best De-Rez ever, even if only one half was actually good.

Haha. I loved them both. Great job. Definitely got as much laughing out of me as the Jack Thompson episode.

Loved it, The Baby killer part was a bit funny and made me chuckle but Voice Man was almost better than Jack thompson: The Movie. I loved the end joke.

"Rated S for sexellent"

Hilarious!

Another great job from the dudes at De Rez. The Baby Killer gig was kinda forced, but Voice Man was kickass. Keep on the good work!

"and there's a lot of women in the world... apparently."
This episode made up for the disappointing one last fortnight. I was lmao all the way through.
After the last two episodes though, I was expecting you to say "People like assassin games but they don't like... Assassin's Creed!"

Sexellent - My new favourite word. That word alone qualifies this offering as genius.

I'm Jonesing for both games already, when are they due for release?

HAHAHAHAHAHAH HOLY SHIT!!!!!

Baby Killer "I need some Heroin"
Voice Man "What happend to my voice??? Im gonna kill somebody!"

Keep up the good work, thats some funny shit there.

I will now use the word Sexellent to discribe everything, good or bad.

Oh God...

I really lol'd hard on this one, the shamelessness of developing a game about killing babies and the way he seems so proud about it...

"I need some heroin..."

Now you've made my day de-rez !

I also agree Voice Man seems a killer concept, I want that !

I actually come to The escapist for De-Rez now more than ZP, i mean yeh i like ZP but theres something about De-Rez that reminds me so much of todays typical british humour, i put De-rez up there with Simon Pegg.

I think Chris owes it to himself to at least at the minimum, turn voiceman into a half life 2 mod.

That baby killing part was simply horrible, a little bit too much and not enough at the same time. Too violent to be funny and not violent enough to be parodic. Swing and a miss IMO, or maybe rather a stab and a miss.

Also, I would have missed that "Baby rage meter" if I wouldn't have read the comments in here, it was almost covered by the escapist logo text and black text was definitely wrong color for it, killers black jacket made it unseeable for the most of the time and the silly meter didn't even seem to work.

Voice Man on the other hand was great. The gameplay footage really made it look like a very versatile game, zombies, fighting against other people and the mystery of the stolen voice too. I would like to play that game now, good stories are always nice!

Loved the Voice Man's new voice, I was expecting a really bad dub or something. Narrators voice was also good, better voice talents in this clip than in some real games.

Man, what Chris Slack provokes(laughter and entertainment), the other bad-actors take away. Just get some nice actors or don't Use them, Chris!

Video editing and effects are getting better though.

Not 100% in good taste but it has many good lines in it. Good job and I hope you found that maternity ward.

I understand what/how the characters were saying things and the motivations/devices in this episode. I've also seen a few other episodes of De-Rez, but this, like the others (like Yahtzee's Biggest Fan, the Jack Thompson stints, etc) didn't tickle my fancy. Some observations for your leisure:

The "Baby Killer" installment was dumb and tasteless. I'm not sure if it was meant to be a parody, but it looked like a mutated hybrid of Grand Theft Auto (the gritty, pulse-paced controversy of the subject matter), NARC on PS2 (your 'heroin meter' to do some serious damage), and poorly edited scenes of a slasher film (the slow moving person in dark clothing walking to the slow moving guy with the baby doll). The effects were flashy, yes, but it's so transparent and it did nothing to warrant a gasp or chuckle (from me, anyway)

The "Voice Man" installment had an interesting name and premise (reminds me of a Mega Man Robot Master), but it degenerated into a samey, tripe vengeance story with a guy who wakes up with a scar on his throat with a different voice, and he goes around with a firearm killing 'mentally/physically disabled' zombies. Again, it didn't work, and the "S for Sexcellent" felt cheap and tacked on. But I have an idea for this:

I figured that you would've had a first-person perspective of the camera treading through a dark labyrinth (maybe an apartment, or hell, a church) manipulating the environment with only your voice. You could use your effects to trigger colorful 'noise circles' in which you could activate a door/lever, or it could be saying you need to retrack (camera turns around) to another portion of the place, where you encounter other embodiments of sound (again, with your effects) and fight them by screaming, cursing, or whatever. If you did something like that, and tried to infuse this aspect with humor, I'd probably laugh and crap my pants. Just a suggestion, in case you wish to revisit this concept.

Overall, eh...what can I say, I felt it was average. I've read some other comments here and it seems to be relative to British humor (like Simon Pegg...I watched Hot Fuzz and merely smiled at one or two scenes, but most of it flew over my head; yeah, I admit it, I understand British humor, but it doesn't make me 'LOLZ') The automated audience, however, delivered a tang of nostalgia, like watching a live-broadcasted show from the fifties and sixties, so I thought it was okay.

Best of luck on future installments.

I'm not sure what to think about this. The whole baby killer thing seemed in bad taste yet it was such a perfect depiction of a marketing departments mentality.

I know everyone else liked Voiceman the best, but bugger that, I think there's a niche in gaming for heroin-crazed baby slayers. All it needed was some racism, otherwise it would've been a perfect gaming concept.

Lickin' moi cockney lips in anticipation for its release, I am.

With so many fascinating suggestions on how to improve an (intentionally?) imperfect video, maybe you should have your own little place next to yahtzee in the 'new videos' column.

How you managed to be overlooked despite your evident genius and eye for wit astounds me.

Or rather, it would, had you not revealed yourself to be impervious to dry humour by bagging 'Hot Fuzz'.

Ya bastard.

To Greasemoicockpal...: Your comments humble me. I'm more of a writer and have little to no experience with handling film or comedy. As for me being overlooked, well, that's simple: I don't post here often (I did, however, write two recent reviews: one for Afro Samurai, and one for Mega Man X8, if you'd like to check those out). I'm not sure if advertising about this sort of thing is illegal, but meh, you know. Thanks a bunch, sarcasm or not.
