Escapist News Network: Natal Scandal

well done only 7 days to next espisode

Great episode again guys, and I'm rather interested on the FF 1&2 for the iPhone

Why did Kathleen use lipstick from the blood of her vanquished enemies?

Whatever kool-aid you escapists are sipping, I want some. ZP and ENN were great this week. Some really sharp stuff in the top stories.

I hope Final fantasy 7 never gets remade. The original was the best, a remake would just fuck it up.

So here's my question...

The Escapist has recently been insisting that they try to maintain a policy of hosting pg-13 equivalent content, as made evident by their insistence upon censoring profanity in some of it's series. Am I the only one who has a hard time buying that the depiction of milo taking part in an orgy wasn't exactly appropriate for a thirteen year old child? Perhaps only the kings of the Escapist (Graham, Paul, and Mr. Croshaw) are permitted such creative freedoms.

On topic though, great episode with many lolz to be had. Honestly in my opinion though, the attractive blonde in the Natal demos should have been arrested long before Milo. Her conversations with the lad had more than a hint of pedophilia in my opinion.

I'm not sure! I watched the video and went "yikes!" - it doesn't help that I'm almost as pale as Kratos anyhow. Everyone can be sure that particular shade of lipstick will not be coming back. Yetch.

IronGoldenEagle:
Awful as always, like your Unskippable

Wonderful! If you hate this, be sure to watch Loading Ready Run, I think you will also find those videos to be to your disliking! :)

Kathleen, I dig your glasses miss. +5 points to you.

Yeah, I'm thinking the orgy picture might be a bit off considering the general image The Escapist tries to present.

... that has been becoming more and more "trying to steal the title of the most horrible community away from GameFaqs", but still.

Even if the parody news weren't good it on its own (which it is), random one-line references like the SotN line would make ENN worth checking each week. Even picked one of the less memey lines from that scene... yeah, memey is totally a word.

Since when?

Yahtzee swears his head off...
Doomsday arcade contains heavy violence and serious swearing too (though that's just Australia. XD)

Moviebob - Swearing.
Apocalypse lane - sex references, violence, swearing.

...
And there's plenty more stuff in the video archives, or for that matter in the articles themselves...

The only thing I can imagine he's referring to is that obnoxious episode of Moviebob with all the bleeping.

What did you dislike about this, or, for that matter, Unskippable?

Eudaemonian:

Also that one bleep in the penultimate episode of TWBB. Considering the amount of violence in the episode after, however, I guess it wasn't permanent.

Oh god that line was tortured. Other than that poor line, "What a swell job you have done! That's just peachy!"

YES! The Halo 5 joke form your movie about halo that I cannot remember the name of at the moment because i'm too lazy to visit the loadingreadyrun website and by golly this is the longest and most gramatically errorous sentence I have ever made.

I want my final fantasy VII remake and also include VII as well

I love Blitzball in Final Fantasy X

Hileict:
I've gotta say, nicely delivered feature story, Jer! Milo had it coming!

Also, even though I'm a fan of and quite enjoy my share of Final Fantasy games.. The Last Story. Really, Mr. Sakaguchi? First, you split from SE's downfall, start Mistwalker, both awesome moves.. But then Blue Dragon and Lost Odyssey? Although I personally don't mind the sidestory deep in Lost Odyssey and how the dream sequences are written, still doesn't make me -want- to play it much.. Thesaurus looks like the new must-have game-naming device. Such an interesting concept.

As for Final Fantasy, they've re-released and re-re-released Final Fantasy 1&2 already. NES -> DS -> PSP.. Now the iPhone? That's just stupid. FF7 really is the only FF game that needs a proper remake. 8 and 9 were graphically better anyway and Crisis Core: FFVII on PSP is a perfect way to have an action-RPG. Maybe it was Zack that did it, but that game was much more fun with the music remixes and nicely pieced together prequel storyline.

VIII may have been summon-heavy, but it was a terrible, terrible game. The only thing I even care to like about it is the Ragnarok airship that COULDN'T GO BACK TO SPACE!? and maybe Esthar, which was an awesome futuristic city.

I mean, seriously.. FFVII could be a BRILLIANT game as a remake simply from the much more immersive story compared to its predecessors (arguably FFVI though, maybe?), but really, add the overall gameplay and rather entertaining cutscenes from how Crisis Core looked and it may be pretty damn awesome.

Either way, awesome ENN this week!

Just cause no one else brought you in for this, 4, 5 and 6 deserve and need a full 3D remake more than 7, mainly because the only thing they'd do is add voices and make it clearer, if they remade 4, 5 and 6 on the ps3, it'd probably be much cooler

Loved the Castlevania reference at the end. Good show as usual. Always a highlight of my week.

Nice Halo 5 reference! I almost spit my water. I should stop drinking water when I watch funny things.

Vohn_exel:

But anyway, what was the cookie joke at the end?

when you give blood you get a cookie and some juice afterward.

You obviously don't know what you're talking about. Did you forget to mention that FFVII has had ZERO remakes, whereas FF4, 5 and 6 have ALL been remade 2-3 times!

Original SNES -> PSone (in America and Japan, they WERE FMV-style games!) -> DS, etc.

They've HAD remakes. VII has desperately needed one yet Crisis Core has certainly lessened the wait time, because it's quite fun.

Mah boobies, what have you done with them? Give them BACK!

"Master Chief and friends"
BEST.
REFERENCE.
EVER.

All my low cut and titillating (ha ha! puns!) were in the wash.

Sounds like a good idea, thankfully I can refrain from laughing while I drink stuff.

Dear escapist i have planted a bom in your building and unless you Significantly up Kathleens dressing budget, it will go off!

As always, premium content at an amazing price.

I dig your ideas and want to subscribe to your newsletter.

*Sniped!*(reported) Problem solved.

That milo section of the report creeped me out as much as the first time I saw the video about project natal and got introduced to milo. I still would want a Natal due to the possibility of it being like the movie Gamer.

Yes 4 has had a remake on DS but 5 and 6 have been re released, by that logic 7 has indeed been remade on PC and Ps3 already but you weren't expecting me to a) understand english and b) actually know my stuff.
My point was that they could remake not re release 4, 5 and 6 and improve on them much more than they could 7 because that would only get a graphical boost whereas the SNES titles would get a completely new 3D world and tons of little details that couldn't have been included the first time around.

<3 to the LRR crew and the good stuff they keep putting out. (would the Lady Kathleen put the cat ears on in a future episode if i ask nicely? please...pretty please? *grovel*)

I can't wait until Master Chief Superstar Adventures in Dreamland gets released through Games on Demand. Pity we have to wait till 2015.

I seriously approve this! +1 vote from me : )

Another great episdoe guys and girls, i'm enjoying Matt Wiggin's appearance as the "Industry Expert" more and more! Definitely seems to be getting into his stride. Blackcurrant and lime slushies sound bloomin incredible! Was that a concept you came up with or do you actually have those in Canada? Also Guildford is 20 minutes down the road from me! (My new claim to internet fame)
