So apparently this is a thing:

And confirmed by Archon:



What are your thoughts on TotalBiscuit becoming an Escapist contributor? Do you think he'll be a worthy contributor? What will he talk about? Will he be a worthy replacement for MovieBob? Let me know your thoughts Escapists.

I haven't seen Total Biscuit in years, but that's very good for him.

I believe this is definitely a good hiring decision. For both Mr. Biscuit and for the Escapist.

I'll give him a watch, depending on what he does.

If this is still legit tomorrow, then yeah, it'll be pretty neat I guess.

But really? I think it's just an April Fool's Joke.

God dame it, this is great news, but on the other hand this is April 1st.

I don't even....

EDIT: If it's fake and a prank, then Archon and TB are going a little far [http://www.escapistmagazine.com/tag/view/totalbiscuit]. Makes sense that today would be the day to announce it given it's the first of the month, but if true it's the worst month to do it.

Oh look, I just made a thread about April Fools jokes that feel like a kick in the gut.

If this turns out to be another one....

I'd be happy if this was true, but I don't see how it could be. Doesn't Biscuit make more on his own than the escapist could pay him? Not like he needs any exposure with his numbers.

That would be like Channel Awesome hiring Red Letter Media.

Close one though, you almost had me there. I can imagine this one maybe being a bit too salty for some people

Okay, people need to stop delivering news on April Fools' Day because I literally cannot tell what's a joke and what isn't.

From here on, all news shall be postponed until April 2nd. So say I, random internet poster.

That's the catch, TB is too caustic for the Escapist's new no negativity approach. Should have tipped people off right there.

Yeah...I'm leaning towards April fool's joke.

And if it is not. Eh, I don't really care. I'm just not a fan of Total Biscuit.
Weird though that TB is working here and his BBF Jim used to be a part of this site too.

Edit:
Also is he a MovieBob replacement or a Jim Sterling replacement? Because I'm leaning on the latter.

Wouldn't be surprised if he posted in the thread just to say what's going on. That would actually be pretty cool. Today seems like a pretty interesting day for the site. New ZP, new subforum, apparently new content. I had gotten a PM by a community member that pitched something that the site was flooded by new content in March, so apparently there will be another flood for April? *shrugs*
