Hmmmm, double post, sorry for that.

Well I don't play DnD but I find it fascinating about how it works and the choices etc. so I find watching people play it strangley entertaining. Also the fact they aren't the stereotypical players adds a new dimension into the mix. I will be following it with curiousity.

These comments are a perfect storm of ignorance and prejudice.

Half the people here wouldn't be happy if the video featured Gary Gygax and Dave Arneson coming down from heaven with the Game of Games on two stone tablets - because its Dnd, and that's "boring".

The other half wouldn't be happy if the video featured Sasha Grey and friends healing the sick and negotiating peace in the Middle East - because they're in porn and therefore fair game for snide comments that assuage sexual frustration.

Yeah, I'm ignorant and prejudice for not liking a boring show, filmed rather poorly. I couldn't give five flying ferret fucks if they are porn stars or not. It's boring, simple as that. Do I like DnD? Yes, love it, one of the best things you can do with friends. Do I want to watch strangers play it? Hell no. I like the irony of you accusing people of being prejudice for not sharing your point of view. It's called an opinion, get over it.

DnD with pornstars... I like it!

DFish:
Oh for crying out loud. I can't see any way that this is not just an attempt to increase traffic figures with the fleeting prospect of seeing naked people.

And yes, I did watch the video until I got bored. Which didn't take long.

This pretty much.

I never thought I'd see Sasha Grey on The Escapist. Though the novelty of that idea didn't last the entire video. I'm guessing the idea is that the internet is full of nerds, and nerds like video games so the two must be combined: Pornstars playing one of the more nerdy games out there on a site for... nerds.

I really hope The Escapist tries to at least get one new decent series. All the new shows have failed to hold my attention so far.

Not bad at all, not particularly funny, but who doesn't want to watch porn stars play D&D? It's mixing two really good things- like cheesecake and bacon.

Watching people play D&D is right up there with watching people play Bocce ball in the list of most boring things a human being can do with their time. The naked appeal(no pun intended) to lust is almost offensive. It's never an unwise move to try and capitalize off the nerd libido, but man, there isn't a more entertaining option out there?

Welcome to The Escapist ;) Don't sweat the nay-sayers, not everything is for everyone. I think you're all on to something here & this could really take off if you do it right.

Wow. You really put a lot of thought into that. Good for you.

Not to be overly rude, but I think the internet adage "Tits or GTFO" applies.

So porn stars and strippers play D&D... poorly... Are we supposed to get our jollies off on this? The fact that they're playing is great, the fact that this is a featured video is somewhat insulting and makes me feel... used...

/shrug, maybe I just don't get it.

Gee, now isn't that a mature and liberal advise. How about going in the opposite direction and "fuck 'em if they like it!"?
Yeah, that sounds good. Makes me feel way more reasonable....

You spelled "Advice" wrong.

Kinda reminds me of the Pajama party thing they had on Roosterteeth via Youtube. They haven't done those in a while but this might be a good replacement.

I'm not very impressed with this to be honest, I prefer Sasha Grey in her other films =D, not sure if thats really her either...

To my fav pornsite with all haste to compare vids!

In all seriousness that was rather (extreamly) boreing.

Coming from a similar adult entertainment background (behind the camera, that is) I find it really amusing that people are shocked, SHOCKED! That adult film actors are (GASP) real people that do real things.

See all you D&D geeks? Hot women play too. There's hope for you after all ;)

People playing D&D already know that actually, it's only the public who has the misconception that only nerds living in the basement of their parents at 30 play it.

And most people on this site are gamers, not the general public.

Ok you obviously read my post but are apparently having trouble comprehending it.

Let me help you. This is what's called an "emoticon" ;) generally used to show emotions to a text statement made on a forum or in a chat. This particular "emoticon" is meant to convey a "tongue in cheek" attitude to show that you shouldn't take what was said too seriously, which you obviously did.

In case you're still confused: "Tongue In Cheek: (adj.) Meant or expressed ironically or facetiously.

And if you're still having trouble: Sarcasm Sar-Casum (n) 1. A cutting, often ironic remark
2. A form of wit that is marked by the use of sarcastic language and is intended to make its victim the butt of contempt or ridicule.
3. The use of sarcasm.

Late Latin sarcasmus, from Greek sarkasmos, from sarkazein, to bite the lips in rage.

If I can be of any further assistance you have but to make another asinine comment.

Oh wait, are you going to need help with "Asinine" too?

It's a new concept at the least. Can't wait to see shat comes next.

Um I don't get it.

well that kinda came out of no where

Rather boring in my opinion, both porn and DnD make me feel a little bit dirty as it is...

I guess horny, lonely DnD players will enjoy this. I don't see what else this could be for...

Artorius:
ookeyy.. i couldn't get past the 1 minute mark...i guess it appeals to some people..
pd:frankie's finger tatoo's look awesome though :D..

I wasn't the only one for 1 minute? Maybe 40 seconds here..

Suppose I get a pilot episode of my newest show on the front page of The Escapist. It's a group of veterans from the first gulf war playing foursquare. The camera is shaky, the scenes are all poorly lit, every last bit of dialog is insipid and unfunny. Furthermore, nobody can relate to it, aside from the fact that back in the day, maybe they used to play foursquare. It's impossible to enjoy in even an ironic fashion, because there's no substance to pretend to enjoy in a hipster-esque act of self-parody.

It gets widely panned in the comments section. By your logic, the reasons for this are as follows:

A) Half of the viewers are liberal, communist, anti-American pinko queers that weren't macho enough to get into the military, and so they are bitter and resentful towards the heroes engaging in the noble sport of foursquare.

B) The other half of the viewers just straight-up hate foursquare, because they're bad at it. It wouldn't matter if it was played with laser fences dividing the four squares and a hamster-ball full of nitroglycerin instead of a rubber bouncy-ball, it's foursquare, and that's "boring". It doesn't matter that there's really no way to make watching people play foursquare interesting, it's their fault for not liking the premise I picked out.

However, reality dictates that nobody liked it because the cinematography was shit, the premise was crap, it was unengaging, and the "stars" of the film were clearly just an overt ploy to get the Call of Duty fanboys to rush in and drool over those lucky enough to have held an M-16 in real life. In spite of this, I refuse to accept the fact that nobody can see me for the apparent genius and mastermind that I am, and make a sockpuppet account to defend my ill-conceived creation in the comments section.

wow, did not expect to see porn(stars) on The Escapist. I am a fan of pornography but not Dungeon and Dragons. To me this is like watching Slayer filling out their tax returns. I'm like "wow, Kerry King is having a relaxed chat", but I'm also like "wow, this is some boring ass shit".

Satine Phoenix:
Thanks everyone for watching!
Weather you love it or it's just not your thing, we really appreciate you all watching our show. It's really fun for us to share these moments with you. There's an Interview that posted on http://io9.com today that explains the series better.
Thanks again,
Satine

I don't know about everyone else but I had fun. The part when you were listing what films you'd been in was pretty funny.

I'm not gonna say who but one person in your group wasn't having much fun.

Well, I'm not a huge fan of DnD, but for me, this could be a gateway to more enjoyable content...

WTF?!

I really dont get it.

I guess its tits or gtfo ?

I see what your saying, but I think I can explain the flawed premise with maths.

the percentage of viewers who like porn is around 70% (℮)
the percentage of viewers who like Dungeon and Dragons 10% (℮)

Now I don't know about ya'll, if I had a bunch of pornstars in a room then I would not be playing Dungeon and Dragons with them. In reality, if I had a bunch of anybodies in a room then I would not be playing Dungeon and Dragons.

I am guessing the principle of the series is expressed thusly:
(.)(.) + nerds = $

Now if I was running the joint then I would get the lovely ladies, throw them in a room with Yahtzee and film what happens. Give them a task to do such as play guitar hero or something you know, fun? I think Yahtzee could handle it. Or perhaps get them to discuss the geopolitical situation or take a quiz. Something topical.

I dunno, I'm just rambling here. But get them talking about SOMETHING. How about a music review video? Isn't any of that on the site. Just argh, anything but nerd games. Seems so contrived, even though I'm sure that one of them was telling the truth when she said she had been playing for years. Having said all that I would watch a video of them discussing Star Trek. So I can sympathise with the .7 x .1 crossover group that really do enjoy the concept.

I don't really understand where this came from. The people aren't that interesting either, and if people aren't interesting in a video like that, the video is boring. If somebody asked me if I wanted to watch pornstars and strippers playing D&D I'd say no.

Well...I'll keep watching to see if it improves...but so far it screams of a gimmick. Sort of in a "OMG PORN STARS PLAYING DND THEY'RE SO HAWT *drool*" kind of way. Which is probably going to be amusing for about...3 episodes. If they're lucky.

This would of been so much better if it was a Vampire/WoD LARP group!

wait... a D&D game were hot girls make up the group.... did the large heydron collider explode and suck me into opposite world?

still this is awsome. Take that people who say that D&D players are hopeless nerds who will die virgins :D

I was hoping for some actual playing, like how Penny-Arcade had their D&D sessions recorded. Just, let the players play. Don't try and get them to talk to the camera, if anything discourage it. If you want to use the reality show method of interjecting afterward thoughts every few seconds that's fine.

"cuz it's a DEMON, duh." i lol'd

but anyway. dont exactly know what im sposed to take from this.....kinda was like...whuh?
but yeah, kinda interesting. adult entertainers though? didnt see that coming
