I love this series so much <3

I believe that Graham and the Gang (Not a jazz band) are the first to create a second show on the Escapist. And it's bloody sweet!

I want cheap bananas too
...oh, and Graham...You're not Tom Tucker :(

I'm not very well at English, so I have a a problem judging if these news are 100% liable. Are they?

Else it was fun :3

All the stories we read at the desk are based on real news.

So:
- WoW is back online in China
- There is a Wii version of Twilight Scene-It
- EA is not releasing Brutal Legend in Japan because of "no metal culture"
- An iPhone app was ported to the Zune in 12 hours
- SquareEnix and PopCap are making a game together
- Wolfenstein was pulled from Germany because the developers left 1 swastika in the game

Crap, I forgot all about the lunch for Zune owners. Damn it!

This is the least funniest video I have seen on the Escapist...

Still more reliable than CNN.

Hilarious. I think that this is becoming one of my new favorite Escapist shows.

You forgot:

Harmonix is making another Rock Band game

Absolutely brilliant.

Im SOOOOO going to 6 star the meow mix song on Jingles Rock Band when it comes out lolz nicely done guys

slow down! if you make all the episodes more funny than the last, where will you go in the future?

$0.39 a pound!? Where can I get these bananas!?

Also, I can't wait to play as Bill Cosby in Jingles Rock Band. It'll give me an opportunity to perfect my Cosby voice.

Maybe in Brazil if the taxes weren't so DAMN HIGH!

ahahaha

"Have you seen the twilight movies?"

"Yes"

"You lose."

I zune bit got me going too.

It took me exactly three seconds to get the "Imperial Hot" joke. Then I almost choked on my lasagna.

I suppose I'll have to add this to the list of "videos I can't eat food during the viewing of". Then I'll have to fix that terrible grammar the name of the list has.

Until then, I'll dream of rocking out to the Slinky jingle and eating a cheap banana.

That was funny, I like this thang.

This doesn't have enough comments, so I had to make an account. To bestow upon you a well thought out and pertinent suggestion:

MOAR. LIKE. THIS.

I've heard that Japan has a surprisingly large Metal Culture.
Maiden played there for crissakes.

And why does he get two shows? Stop dilluting the humor!

I found it hilarious how many people took the RB:J thing seriously Sean even had to post on his twitter that it was to clear things up.

I think this is a nice experiment, but the talking for extra time is more entertaining then the content between them. So far not entertaining since going with things that no is caring about we get to hear again. Sure it does the same thing as news on TV with video games, but it is still boring. Need to really do more, having things like the Rock Band Jingles was nice, though it has about the same worth as the SNL update. If they could do more then that it be worth watching. So far it has proved it can't.

Why would they need to charge for a jingles rockband? Would the amount of advertising money be insanely high?

Gmano:
insane

Also describes every other aspect of that game.

Hope to see this continue for a long time.

A lot of gaming news is pretty ludicrous when you think about it.

Which is why I guess most people don't think about it.

Dear Germany,

The Nazis existed. They still exist. They're your fault. Suck it up and take responsibility.

Excellent episode.
I'm sure Harmonix will be thrilled that the latest iteration of Rock Band is already being well received ;)

Also, just to point out, there is now an ENN fanclub.

This was very good. And better than last week.

I wish my local news program was anywhere as bootylicious or resplendent as ENN. Good work!

Today I was in the grocery store and I saw 39 cent bananas (8 people died)

This show is awesome! LOVE ENN

It's a good thing Jingles Rock Band is just a joke, or I would have to kill somebody. May you never be 'blessed' with relatives who think singing commercial jingles is funny - I can only imagine how much worse it would be if such a game came to fruition..

*Shudder*

Cool new show

The style of humour isn't exactly unique, but this is the first time I've seen it applied exclusively to this subject matter. I do like the professionalism and quality, though I wouldn't expect anything less from LRR.

Was that a shameless self plug I just spotted?

I normally don't get the jokes about germany. I didn't get last weeks ODST joke and I didn't get the Doomsday Arcarde Joke "Nein, Schnitzel!". I think it's because I'm german and don't really know the preconception you americans have about us. But this time I really laughed about the wolfenstein joke. I hate our government for what they are doing with games. Forbidding every swastika doesn't serve anybody but I don't really care about that. What makes me really angry is that they want to completely forbid all shooters. Not only the distribution but also the creation of them. Bye, bye, Crytech, see you in another land. It's such a shame...

The Great JT:

Well, that's a really stupid statement. Germany is still paying compensation for the war and is so afraid of beeing viewed as the evil Nazis that the government rather forbids anything that could cast a damning light on us.
I'm at the age of 30 and I didn't live during the war. Do you really think I'm responsible for what happend back then? Or any one of the millions of other people who were born after the war? It's like if I'd say you killed all those american indians, go take responsibility for that. Jeah, we still have some Nazis but so has America, hasn't it?

That's why I don't like WWII games. They show a picture of germany that's long gone but many people believe it's still real.

Instead of free it'll cost 50-60 dollars - pretty the same to me XD

Tantalus3D:
I didn't get last weeks ODST joke

The joke was just picking a random European language and making a nonsense phrase that still fit the acronym "ODST". There weren't any jokes being made at Germany's expense, so there's not really anything to get.

Glad you liked the Wolfenstein jokes though!
They also had all the blood taken out of the game, too. Seems silly to me.

No-one important:

Perhaps, but I suppose it's better than a shameful self plug...
