I watch you before I watch Zero Punctuation!

Because your released earlier.

Great as always, and that Kinect thing made my ribs explode. I should really go see a doctor.

Calumon: Graham's beard looks fuzzy. I wanna rub it!

I was quite surprised when you mentioned that I watched Zero Punctuation before this. How the hell did you know?!

I'm glad I'm not the only one.

Anyways: I liked these E3 Bytes.
Too bad that they're over...

Two things mainly;

I LOVE the jab at Zero Punctuation, regarding rabid fanboys who really only flock to The Escapist for more Yahtzee and then bugger off elsewhere.. Or just watch other stuff blindly.

Secondly, Graham's Peter Molyneux accent is... Mind-numbingly awesome. Too good to just be a fake accent... Is Graham secretly Peter Molyneux..?

MILOS FOR EVERYONE~!

I too thought Graham's Molyneux impersonation was awesome!

I do actually watch ZP first, but only because it's the bookmark above ENN in my favourites...

Oh my god he nailed my fantasy of growing an army of children to take over the world!
Regardless it's sad to see the bytes go (for this year), but then you can't make clips of something that's not even happening... right?

Keep up the good work, then I may change my usual wednesday schedule of first random tab opened, first watched to actually pick one of the open tabs and see them in any given order.

It's shame its the last one but good things don't last forever

Your milo credits idea sounds amazing; I want a fable 3 mod for that.

ENN comes onto the escapist first ∴ I watch it first. Also, it's better.

So Graham, when are you going to record for us an escalating crazy promise fight between Peter Molynowayicanspellthat and Billy Mayes? Because you do both of those impersonations WAY too well.

For the love of God, someone else sponsor an Escapist Vidoe. If I have to watch that mouth breathing Canadian shill SlimJims like a wusst Canada version of Randy Savage in front of every single video next week, I am going to invade Canada and pay them back for Edge, justin Bieber and Nickelbacl. Especially fucking Nickelback.

I will support the Call of Duty Good Morning Vietnam plan on one condition. When the game detects excessive cursing and/or voices cracking they are automatically muted and all the kid/griefer can hear would be Robin Williams screaming back at them, but not in the funny way.

This was a good short series, in formative and entertaining. I hope you guys do something similar for PAX and Gen Con, maybe have Moviebob do a guest shot as the correspondent who talks about the "Thor" previews.

If you don't like the videos, why are you watching them? And then posting here?

He seems actually to have a problem with some ambiguously referenced commercial that runs in front of the video.

Anyway, I am totally busted on watching ZP first. But in truth, it was Yahtzee that brought me to Escapist, so I'm sure the ENN news crew understands that you hafta dance with who brung ya.

OMG, you are reading my mind! watching ZP before ENN
i actually do it in that order because i'm saving the best for last :)

i'm guessing they came up with the joke by looking at viewing statistics.

The "child" sensing thing worries me a little. I mean, at first glance it seems an alright enough idea, it could, for example, be used for parental controls and scaling back difficulty..

However, I'm concerned that it won't actually be detecting children, rather looking for say, people with skeletal systems that are not as developed as the average adult. The problem is that while children do fit into that category, it isn't exclusive to children.

It seems like such an easy choice from a PR stance for MS to use this child sensing tech to lock out Kinect Video chat and M/T rated games, vocal parent groups would never speak against to a company doing once again their jobs for them.

However, if the system is unable to tell the difference between a child and someone who is afflicted with dwarfism then you're going to end up with people who can't use these features or play these games because the sensor thinks they are 4 rather than 40, which will come with its own fun brand of press backlash.

I don't have a set watching period actually. I usually come here and go "oh yeah!" and watch whatever I think of first :p.

That being said, I like the idea of planing Milo in the ground and having the little Milos battle for your amusement. Thats a game I'd buy :p

How did they know I watch ZP first?!

It's mostly just because the ZP button is waaaaay up here, and the EEN button is waaaaaaay down there though.

No no, I watch you before Zero Punctuation, though it is mainly because I like to save ZP for last, like a delicious dessert, but that's not to say you aren't a tasty pizza.

Anyway, a slightly smaller, but still delicious pizza today.

I look forward to flayling around for the better part of next year.

Two minutes of my time that I'll never get back. Thank Gosh goodness for Zero Punctuation on Wednesday! That's not all I watch, tho...the weekly articles are usually worth a look, Experienced points is always an interesting read, too.

It's sort of like the recurring gamer joke that Kevin Siembieda and Steve Jackson might be the same person. They actually look fairly similar (or did at one point).

I personally got the most chuckles out of the child sensor and the pedobear referance.

Though honestly, it did make me wonder if this is going to cause a lawsuit. If this somehow locks out content by detecting children or something, and actually functions, what is going to happen when little people (like dwarves and midgets) want to play video games?

Ironically there have been special interest law suits over less.

I can see it now, Bridget Powers sues because the system claims she's lying about her age and is not ready for adult content and to learn about sex. :p

... and don't pretend you don't know who Bridget Powers is.

I used to be said fanboy, but I have seen the light, and now I know that ZP is just the most awesome thing on a sight filled with awesome things =P

True! And exactly what I was going to say...

Calumon said:

Also true! Although I'm not entirely sure I want to rub it...

And I was pleasantly surprised by Mr. Stark's stereotypical english accent/Molyneux voice. It worked!

Hmm... quoting Jack and Calumon separately - a new game for the escapist?

I just love where they added in the part about Zero Punctuation. I wait until the end of the day to go on the Escapist, and that is usually what I do. My favorite jokes are the ones that point out things that are true. That's why I watch you guys and Yahtzee.

It kind of reminds me of this thing SNL did. Alec Baldwin was addressing the audience and he said, "distinguished guests, audience members, and all of you watching at home tonight or more realistically on your computer Monday morning." I laughed like crazy because that was exactly what I was doing.

Anyway, I love the work you do. Loading Ready Run, ENN and the Unskippables are one of the reasons I keep coming back to the Escapist. You guys are awsome. I look forward to next week's stuff.

I watch ZP first because you guys are always funny. ZP can be hit or miss sometimes.

That way, I always end my video watching with a laugh.
