Nooooooooooo!

I want Zone of the Enders

chung smuggler

Retro ENN FTW. This might just be my favorite episode, something about it makes me like it more than the others. Quality stuff.

Oh my god! The satire! It burns!!!!!11!!1@$$%#1!%I_love_kittens_$%1!!!

Somehow I think Funk got the part solely because he was the only one with a blizzard hat on hand.

TAKE IT OFF GRAHAM!!!

Take it alllllllllll off... :)

Grahav:
Ah, freesom of speech. Being white in Brazil ... means that I can't speak like Chris Rock else I go to jail.

Thank god where I can liberate my vile biles...

Can white Brazilians call people chuwero?

Also "Vile Biles" would be an excellent name for a rock band.

Best ENN... ever!

The Rumble Kinect bit had me in stitches. Seriously, I'm still crying manly tears of laughter here.
The Kojima roast and the layers of hate speech were excellent as well.

MowDownJoe:
It's amazing how much one Penny Arcade comic has entrenched itself in gamer culture...

John Gabriel's Greater Internet Fuckwad Theory is an important part of modern psychological studies across the world, you chun-smuggler

I think so, since there is no implicit thing against the black, indians, gays and the people from northeast of Brazil in this word. These are the most sensitive when it comes to hate speech here (never call anyone "paraíba" or "criolo" around here, it is the same as the n word).

In the other hand, nobody here knows that word so a explanation would be needed to make people feel offended and that cuts the offensive potential of swearing.

As for "Vile Biles"; permission granted to be used.

One of the best ENN's you've ever put together! :D Absolutely hilarious!

Loved the repeated mockery of Kajima as well as 70s Graham, and 40's Graham, no doubt the current Graham's father and grandfather respectively... :P

The whole RealID thing is really old. I don't know when this was taped, but for those who are curious: http://blue.mmo-champion.com/t/25968987278/regarding-real-names-in-forums.

It's basically been revoked 6 days ago, on the 9th. On a side-note, LOVED the Hideo Kojima Jokes!

Kathleen. How do respond to the accusations that you are in fact a hypocrite?

Kevitto:
The whole RealID thing is really old.

I don't think 5 days (the video came out on the 14th) is "really old", but regardless, the video does say that it's been revoked.

Hahah, thats great! My favorite was the joke with the older ENN's.

Twas a noble attempt to get Kathleen nude on ENN.

Next week we will be broadcasting from an active volcano. Tune in!

W00T!

Kojima flashback bit was very very full of win.

I couldn't believe that people were complaining about lack of rumble on Kinect, anyway. The joke almost writes itself.

I love the hate speech thing. Won't someone pleeeease think of the hate speech?

Real ID seems a bizarre thing anyway. While I wouldn't want to be required to sign up to a site or service like this without an option of keeping myself anonymous, I'm evidently in the minority. Looking at my friends on facebook, there are people who will post everything short of when and where they go to the bathroom. It seems people will voluntarily give their freedom away, but the second someone tries to take it...BOOM

Also, I pity those freedomless countries like Canada.

If we lose online anonymity, untold hate speech may be lost.

Watch Video

Next time, please report live from the inside of an active volcano. Plzktnxhairflip.

God, I love bigotry, and racism. I'll burn Blizzard to the ground before I let them ruin it for all of America!

Also, somebody get a volcano for Kathleen to stand in.

If only America was like Australia which has banned hatespeech, videogames and censors the internet for all its citizens, you know like how China bans WoW.

Its terrible that we have a bill of rights that won't allow the U.S. to pass similar laws.
Its too bad because if we did the government could make sure I am never exposed to any word, image or idea that might offend me in any way.

This is probably the classiest and funniest of all ENN reports (and that is a tough thing to accomplish). One of the crown jewels.
Fantastic.

Damn, she will not take her clothes off? ;D
That "music reference"... good lord, I was laughing my head off... the roof... xD

Second half brought a lot of laughs.

LOL
like the 60's version

While I still have my internet anonymity, I will praise Kathleen's cleavage.

Which still loses to Graham's beard. That beard is GLORIOUS.
