Oh god, my sides hurt...

Also, what did that one woman actually say during the Thor bit? Sadly, I couldn't quite make it out.

Thanks for uploading this, but could you change your commercial StarCraft II.
Okay got it, still not buying it. Certainly there has to be a better way for
advertisers to buy ad space here on the Escapist without being clubbed over the
head with their product. It doesn't entice me to buy it, it makes me run in the
opposite direction.

I believe she said, "She never said eating what."

OT: That was glorious and a thing of beauty.

I had to stop it a few times and laugh and from all that talk of flesh lights I feel I must take a shower.

As well as getting something strong to drink because my mind went there.

That may well just be the best thing ever.

Graham's "Pony that's bigger on the inside" had me in tears for so long.

Just bravo to everyone involved with that.

This was pretty much my constant throughout that whole thing.

If I might borrow a line from Mr. Leon Phelps, the Ladies' Man:
"Yeah... uh... by 'dinner' I meant we'd be havin' sex, and by 'movie' I meant we'd be videotaping it."

I'm so sorry...

That was awesome, everybody. I'm sorry I missed it.

You can't imagine the relief I felt when I researched the "man engaged to Twilight Sparkle" thing and discovered that it was all almost certainly the work of a troll. Faith in humanity salvaged.

For the record, my favorite answer out of all of them is still that Gearbox spent the Colonial Marines money on Borderlands 2.

And now I realize why "Russ' departure" podcat had Kane picture... I'm new here, you know. Also, you guys have to do something like that on Escapist Expo 2013, that's awesome.

All of this, right here. Graham, you are my hero. I nearly harmed myself laughing. Laughing that hard with a chest-cold leftover is... well... Graham. I salute you, sir. Well done. I would have died laughing were it not for... well... a small amount of self-control.

That last one was the greatest moment of my internet life. My 2 favourite shows with the dirtiest things in the whole world.

In future, please please please PLEASE, find a way to record the audio from the sound system. The people who do work in the venue will know how to do this. If not, they don't know the venue and should not be taking your money.
This will result in much CLEARER audio and PLEASANT listing pleasure.

Other than that, good effort.
(Please fix this for Pax East/West 2013)

What a shock, Migs complaining about something we've done. First of all, you do realize that PAX isn't our show, and therefore no one is taking 'our' money, right? Secondly, this was an experiment. We've never done video of any of our PAX panels before, so we thought we'd give it a shot this time and see how it went. We're actually pretty pleased with the results, given the number of variables we had to work with.

I'm surprised no one said 'Watch my Little Pony with Thor'. My mind went to the same place as Dan Amrich on the Tali question, truly he is a man of great intellect and wisdom.

Anyway this was extremely funny, looking forward to part 2!

But he is right. Panel was great, but audio/video quality is absolutely horrendous. What did this 'experiment' entail? One camera on a tripod... For a site with outstanding video content this is unacceptable. Take a quick look at TGS PAX Live podcast (http://youtu.be/60nnX_B28s0), and take some pointers...

We've actually never recorded a panel at PAX before (well, not with video, anyway), and this camera is brand new. No, the sound is not ideal, for a variety of reasons (including the room itself) but we thought that having this not-quite-optimal version was better than not having anything at all.

That was hilarious. Do you guys have this thing at the escapist expo?

Now I need to go take a long cleansing shower.
