I have no idea how you can take Sasha Grey playing D&D and make it dull and boring. I could watch Sasha Grey watching paint dry... but I couldn't bring myself to watch this all the way through. I mean, even she looks bored.

This may all just come down to the DM being dull. I am pretty sure the show would have been a hell of a lot more interesting if they had started killing people at the inn or grabbing them by the throat with claws like the players wanted to do, instead of the show being 5 and a half minutes of the DM saying "No no you cant do that, no. No. No you can't."

Two words for the DM... Rail Road...

Can anyone else say Choo choo?

'when did strippers and porn stars get so ugly..and boring?

LOL so true are they actual pornstars because pornstars usually look good they just look like sum easy goth/rock/indie chicks

A lot of make up, lighting and camera angles goes into porn. Also the costumes help. Sasha looks great on camera.

The link is PG...

Zak Sabbath. You have some great talent at that table going to waste. Learn to DM out of the box, let your players explore and interact with the game world, not just run along the beaten path you are trying to force them down.

I'm a bit late to the party, but I'll throw my two cents in.

I like it, I think the quality has gone up since last week, mostly due to editing.I think the girls are interesting, I like the "D&D Documentary" feel of it.

The only thing that really irks me is the fact that the hook to the show is "This video stars women who have sex for money. And a hairdresser."

It says to me: "Hey, we heard gamers were perverts, so we made this, lol."

But I'm actually enjoying it, so perhaps I was a tad hasty. It's like a bite-size chunk of D&D humor.

the whole thing just screams. 'LOOK AT ME... IM INTERESTING, I SWEAR TO GOD IM INTERESTING!'

sooo boring.
i thought id give it annother try. afterall pilot episodes are rarely a good gauge of the show itself.
but this is just as boring as the last.

I find it funny how the last time I saw Sasha Grey, she had multiple wangs grinding multiple orifices. It's a little weird to see someone who spends more screen time fucking people to be sitting around and playing D&D.

Listening to the banter Ive nostalgia'd very hard :D

'Were gonna have to find out about that whole werewolf issue' :D

Despite the detractors keep up the good work.

Hmmm

You're a bit on the all over the place and lacking focus front. It felt kind of sporadic, like I was wondering when things were going to start happening, and then bam, something would pop up, then bam gone before anything actually happened. It was like a jumble of random clips mostly with that one segment that was organized.

Was funny seeing some of the conversations though, I mean, lol, I've had players having those same conversations, same arguements over "oh well I just want to murder them and own the inn".
Literally, had a guy, just wanted to kill the Inn keepers and take it, kindly little non descript NPCs that had never hurt anybody.

Like to see more of Satine, she's the one I find interesting cause she gives the impression of being a vet at dungeon crawls.

GAMEDOGS wasn't cheap laughs? Wasn't a gimmick?

If it wastes your time, there are plenty of *other* hings you can watch on THE ESCAPIST that will likely not bother you the same way. If you honestly think they're programing this to insult you, I think you're taking it all a little too seriously. Give it a little time - Zak himself has said that it doesn't really kick into gear until around episode 5 anyway.

If you think people are only watching this because they want to see tits, well, I really think you're wrong.

You're missing the point. There are other things to watch, but watching other videos doesn't change the fact that this show is rather insultingly simple: tits and video games. Also, although Gamedogs has a gimmick (they're dogs...playing games), it's not personally insulting the viewer; it's just something that the creator did to try and stand out of the crowd. This show...the reason why it's insulting is because the basic premise of it is a bunch of porn star girls playing DND...that aren't very interesting. Therefore, we are lead to believe that Escapist assumes we'll love it because it has girls with huge tits in it.

Also, maybe you should go back and read the comments...several Escapees have actually outright said "I'm only watching this because of their tits."

I'm not missing the point - I'm just disagreeing with it. You're ASSUMING that The Escapist is assuming that. That's not something they've ever said.

Also, rather than passive aggressively assuming that I don't know what other people have said ("maybe you should" is the intro to EVERY passive aggressive statement), you could look at the fact that the "Escapees" in question are looking to a pretty stupid place to see tits when there is an abundance of a lot MORE easily available breast shots online, and ignore what they said about that as well.

Just admit that you're taking personal offense to something that wasn't intended to offend you. The fact that you're feeling offended by it doesn't invalidate the video, and I'm not invalidating your offense (I'm just not agreeing with it), but it certainly calls into question why you contine to watch it when it does offend you. There's nothing wrong with this that your ignoring it won't solve for you.

That weirdness is exactly the appeal for me.

AvauntVanguard:
Gimmick.

Freebird.:
Well that was impressive. Game Dogs turned me away in three episodes. This show did it in two. It may be the most boring thing I've ever seen.

Ah, Game Dogs lost me at 5.

Game Dogs got me at about 1.5. I might give it another go later though. I've never played DnD so maybe I don't get it, but to be honest I cannot see why this is on here. If they weren't pornstars then this would never have been commissioned.

This arrives as Doomsday Arcade leaves... lucky I like the news and forum otherwise I'd be leaving.

1. I wasn't aware that "EVERY passive aggressive statement" begins with "maybe you should". Thanks for introducing me to that rule that you just made up. I'd say I'm being pretty straightforward about my complaints.
2. I wasn't aware that something had to be INTENDED to offend me in order for it to be offensive. So yes, I've said this several times (although apparently you didn't hear it), I DO take personal offense. And I do feel that my REASONS for being offended invalidate the video...being I'm offended that Escapist would think something this boring would be entertaining to us.
3. I don't continue to watch it. The third episode was my last attempt to give it a shot.
4. Can't we just stop this argument? Neither of us are going to change our minds. I don't like the show. For some reason, you do. You can keep watching it. I certainly won't.

mechanixis:
I really want to like this, guys, but it's shaping up to be "stupid, unattractive, and fairly self-important women squabble for five minutes, the show."

That sums it up PERFECTLY

Why aren't there any good new shows this year? Has the Escapist run out of awesome new concepts like "Unskippable"?

Satine Phoenix:

magnuslion:
a group of fairly good looking women with one of the shittiest DM's in known history. wtf, escapist? you can't be this desperate for content. seriously, his total DMing skills amount to "there's a city over there" "she has a mask thing on a stick" and my favorite, his one npc that sounds like it has throat cancer. I think this is kind of insulting to female gamers, as all of them are strippers, etc. Is that the only way for female gamers get on camera? if they only happen to be "adult entertainers" ?

so, not watching this again.

Actually, Mr Magnuslion, I'm a Comic Book Illustrator who happened to strip and do porn for a couple of years of my life. The Idea of the show is that girls like to play D&D too... Even Porn Stars and Strippers and Hairdressers. Maybe you'd like to watch a show that has all Female Paralegals playing D&D? Either people like watching other people Play Dungeons and Dragons or they don't. Personally I love watching people play D&D and listening to various D&D pod casts. Its not for everyone and we know this. If you didn't like the idea in the first place, why would you watch it? The TV show the Bachelor doesn't interest me at all but I don't go on the Bachelor's forums going on and on about how much it sucks. Why would any one waste their time commenting on a show that they wouldn't watch no matter who was cast in it?

yet interestingly enough, you being a comic book illustrator was not part of the show or mentioned in any way that i recall. what was highlighted over and over was that most of you were in the "adult" industry. I'm not judging you, its not my place and im sure as hell not perfect. I found it a bit insulting that Frankie ((Franky?)) was the only girl at the table apparently not related to that other industry. My point was that it seemed like a rather blatant attempt to pull viewers in based not on the show, but on your past relation to adult film. That is an advertising gimmick, and one i find irritating. I might watch a show that had a better DM, or was not predicated on that particular gimmick. I am well aware that girls like D&D too. I have three girls in my regular gaming group, and they are better players than my three guys. I commented, because forums are for opinions. If i was trolling, I would have said something stupid, like "Fake and gay", and moved on. But i usually try my best not to troll or be a dick. I was stating what I have actually felt. I am not attacking your personal likes and dislikes, I am stating my own. Your comparison to "The Bachelor" is irrelevant, because I am on the escapist almost every day. I watched a few episodes, got irritated with your dm's lackluster performance, and said my peace. I didn't spam, troll, or otherwise do anything beyond state my opinion and move on.

If it didnt jump around so much it would at least be a little immersive.

as a video editor and a player of DND myself, I can see the issue with compressing a 3 to 4 hour game session into a 6 minute movie. That and also on the realization that its boring to sit on the outside of the game and watch the whole damn thing. That being said, I'm giving this the benefit to where the editor will eventually find a rhythm and a style suited for what they are trying to do here.

0.o so that's D&D...with porn stars. Not even the presence of porn stars made this game interesting. Even without them, christ that looks boring. How has that game lasted this long???

I notice that the baddies have British accents :P
