They still exist? The instant they left here they just kinda vanished from my care meter, and Unskippable soon replaced them. Which is awesome.
Pretty much this, I've watched some of their episodes since but I haven't shaken the feeling of betrayal after I contributed along with countless other Escapists, then they left this site for no reason (the Escapist backed down, paid them and said they could keep the money). Plus I felt the show went downhill while it was here as they ran out of good topics to talk about.JochemDude said:Nope, they get like over 100k for Allison surgery and right after that they complain about not getting money and say "Well we're keeping all this money, but we're gonna bail now so fuck you". Could be interesting to watch no doubt, be I'm not doing that on principle.
Yeah, those two episodes where James had some sort of public therapy session really put me off as well. Sorry James, but I'm really not interested in watching you blubber about your feelings on YouTube.Comrade_Beric said:After a massive out pour of support back when the schism first happened, I have noticed a gradual drop-off of people mentioning the show. I'm curious to know if this is because people have simply stopped talking about it, or have people actually stopped watching EC?
Personally, I watched the show religiously every week when they were here and I did follow them to Youtube, but I got massively turned off of the show when James hijacked two whole episodes to talk about how he used to play games so much that he didn't function as a human being. The humor was gone, the intelligence was gone, the whole show had become a forum for James to lecture us about how terrible games had been for him... I have not watched a single episode since. What about you guys? Are you still watching the show or did you lose interest?
(Here's hoping for a poll that doesn't get eaten [Edit: huzzah!])
Oh, wow, one mistake, and a minor one at that. At the end of the day, the only difference between the FPS and TPS sub-genres is that one shows your weapon on the screen and the other shows your character. Otherwise they can play pretty much the same.Von Strimmer said:Yes its informative in the same way that Gears is a first person shooter (quote).
A high-pitched voice does not make it whiny, nor the video series preachy.Von Strimmer said:In my opinion it is very preachy what with the whiny voices and that god awful games ruined my life James episode.
I like the Jimquisition series, but it's hardly anywhere near as informative or thoughtful as Extra Credits, and there have been several occasions when he's too blinded by his own biases to realize that he's spewing nonsense through our speakers.Von Strimmer said:Nothing wrong with Jim he is just as informative as extra credits (burn) only more humorous about it. Seriously though its a goddamn 5-10 minute internet show, at the end of the day who the fuck cares. There are many more pressing issues than declaring undying fealty and loyalty to an internet show...
In my opinion
