Also, that shirt is ridiculously cute. :)

Longer episodes with more stuff?

But otherwise awesome! I might have to pick this up as I have someone in mind who's totally into this stuff.

Good job helping consumerism Escapist crew. (not sarcastic)

Or could there be a specific link to the product? Some...people would like to avoid amazon the same way they avoid taxes. :p

I looked quite a bit for a direct link to buy it on Headcase's site, but they're pretty much just a design firm that makes really awesome stuff (those "Owner's Guide" books are also made by them).

Here's a B&N link to purchase, if you really don't want to use Amazon. :)

Would it work by having links to sites at the bottom of the video, like what they have on the bottom of reviews?

Funny story, a friend was using this very Tarot Deck at our last game night.
The artwork is very nicely done, good concept and execution on the theme.

Have a couple of beers, wait for that point in the night where another game of Catan is too much like hard work, and have a bit of a laugh at others and your own expense.
So, yeh, thumbs up.

Also looking forward to more of these.

This was different. I don't object to the short length, it's a quick "pop" of info. I'll be watching future episodes.

I didn't expect that you would be responding to posts, Ashley, but since you are I'll just come out and guess aloud that I'm not the first to mention that you have a notable (but in a good way) resemblance to Megan Fox.

I remember when people used to say that I resembled Patrick Swayze. [footnote]That was a long, long time ago in a lifetime far, far away, of course.[/footnote]


Ah, the good old days!

That's a first! I'm very upset now that I wasn't cast in TMNT instead. I can yell "LOOK OUT RAPHAEL," too!

Great, because consumerism is what gaming culture needs more of. This kind of webisode reminds me of telemarketing in an eerie way.

Enjoyed it- seems like an easy way for me to grab birthday and Christmas present for other people! Whooo for laziness! Could do with being a bit longer but i suppose if the only criticism is 'i want more' then that's not a bad thing :D.

Anyhoo goodjob !

That wasn't cringe-worthy, well done! I kid. I probably won't buy this stuff, but it will be neat to see all the quirky things that are being sold around the web, if that's what this.

Welcome to The Escapist Ashley Esqueda. Since you don't seem to be carrying the same crowd of prejudiced jerks that follow smosh games around I think you will be quite a welcome addition to this website. I look forward to next week's episode.

The shirt was cooler than the product I was trying to be sold...

I wish I was kidding.
Though wouldn't it be cool if this episode was longer and had more stuff on it... Like... What adverts do but longer and explained more about them?

Oh gosh...

Meh, I don't mind it personally as long as I get to see some creative and geeky stuff. If I don't feel like being advertised to I just wont watch.

Needs to be longer with more stuff.

Meh, I didn't object to the show per se. Just not impressed with waiting a week to see one product I could probably find in some online catalog. Nothing wrong with it, just not gonna watch each week for one product.

G4 is still around?

Man that was a sinking ship 3 weeks after they fired wil wheaton, sorry 3 weeks after the very strongly urged him to quit. They caught a gasp of air with the tech TV acquisition but ever since they made attack of the show and said "look 12 year old boys, we have boobs and things that are kinda Japanese you like boobs and Japanese things right? tell your parents to buy our advertisers crap... please." I havent watched.



Ashley, the show was ehhh, I think maybe two items would be better and some sound. It wasnt bad, I look forward to seeing what adaptations you make as you continue, good luck.

Huh, I actually have the Zombie Tarot deck. It is good, really good as I am fascinated by tarot decks, but if I had one complaint it is that the cards feel a little flimsy, so I am almost afraid to use them that much.

People told me that when I worked as an usher (doorman) at a movie theater (longer ago than I prefer to remember). But I'm wary about the internet and I don't have many pictures of myself.

But Isaiah Mustafa? I'm saying this as a straight, white guy--hubba hubba. :D

The more I think about it the more I think this is something the escapist doesn't have and could use. Since this product has absolutely no interest to me what-so-ever it was difficult to get into it, but I look forward to new and interesting posts in the future.

That was the hottest looking zombie I've ever seen, also a great T Shirt. Not sure if it was the sound quality or something, but I think Ashley needs more time to get her personality across in the videos.

The Tarot deck looks interesting too.

Hooray! More new Thursday content! And with a host who's not a white dude with a 'tude! DIVERSITY! WOO! :D

Welcome on board Ashley. Happy to be sharing the Thursdays with you. It'll be nice to be able to send angry No Right Answer viewers your way and just say, "No no, go watch Ashley and be happy now."

I've got three myself for similar reasons. (Actually first was a gift because I loved snarking at the TV tarot/psychic commercials that came in the wake of Miss Cleo. Someone got me one after a comment I made about knowing more about how tarot symbolism works than the so-called "masters" did.)

Agreed. I actually know someone who would LOVE those tarot cards! I definitely would love to see a few more things an episode, but other than that, I love the idea. Great job!

I've got the zombie one, the Dishonoured one, though it is really made for some rubbish game you are meant to be able to play with it, a proper set and a mini set. It is a fascinating idea, though I wouldn't call myself a believer in it.

Why would people be angry about No Right Answer? The name of the show describes the problem already you can't get mad about that :D Besides that more thursday content is always good.

Not bad so far, but it could do with more content for a weekly show.

Between this and that top 5 thing, it's like the escapist has been taken over by Spike TV.

I think the Escapist has hit on a winning format. Any joker can make a video about their opinion of a triple-A game that's getting a huge marketing push at the moment, but finding obscure products that site users would like and reviewing them with actual footage of the product in use, that takes this beyond simple entertainment and providing a service for us. If you keep reviewing products in just the right niche (easily available over the internet but not promoted enough yet to be well-known) then this could be a Big Thing.

Though I propose for your April Fool's episode you review a pair of Adidas Neo shoes.

It would be nice if this ended up being a space for in depth reviews of board games and card games. I don't really feel like it will though.

Do you have the Edward Gorey one? It's set up so that your future is certain to be bleak, or at least uncomfortable.

Do you have anything particular in mind? I'm happy to check out pretty much anything that's fun and cool. I don't know how in depth it would be, since The Wishlist is made to be kind of a little bite of a product, but I actually do really love board games and would love to get into tabletop more.

To my knowledge, people mostly just talk about the show or the game especially.
Not dissing the comics, just the comics are only mentioned when people compare certain events/characters to the show or game provided.
I have read some (but not all) of the comic -- it's an expensive habit, that comic series!
I played the game, and it was actually my Game of the Year for mobile when I was writing for G4.
I also watch the TV show and enjoy it very much. But I hate Andrea. A lot.

Well, the best board game I've ever played is Betrayal at the House on the Hill. It plays like a gothic horror tabletop adventure without needing a GM and is a new experience every time you play. However, if someone else were to purchase it, I'd want to warn them that it takes a decent amount of time and needs a large group of people playing to really be fun. So if you do include board and card games, I think it is important to mention the pros and the cons, so people know what they're getting in to.

Best of luck with the series!

Duly noted in my list o' things~

I have a card game in the works, so as soon as I can work out the production on it (how to shoot the cards and a game in session), I'll start looking closely at board games and more tabletop stuff.



You guys are awesome! I've already gotten messages with suggestions, and they're so different and cool. Really looking forward to seeing what YOU guys turn up as the show goes on. Because really, it's about finding things you guys and gals will enjoy.
