hmmmm...

;)

So the kit that Roger used to kill himself was one of the ones that was sold in knives r' us, which surprisingly was the only thing on that list that wasn't actually a blade, and the person beth was going to marry was one of the russians?

Nmil-ek:
Personaly I dont see what the big deal is.

Lmao that didn't take long to become an avatar, nice!

TheMaddestHatter:

Oh, I quite agree with you, I rather enjoyed the episode myself. But everyone who thinks that by expressing disdain they will somehow shame the creators or shut down the show is tragically mis-informed. They enjoy, in fact, they feed upon the hatred and outrage, and I applaud them for it. There is nothing more entertaining than vexing your detractors, eh?

That's clearly the case here. I'm pretty confident that the people behind GameDogs have already rubbed the paint off their F5 keys while refreshing the page, mockingly laughing with maniacal glee as they go through post and post of "How could you" and "How dare you" and "I'll never watch this show again", with the occasional closet furry elaborating on how hurtful and offensive this episode was, while quietly whimpering to their collection of stuffed toys how yiffing in their vixen fursuit will never be the same again.

On the other hand we have our selection of adolescent Hannibal-wannabes who won't admit that they didn't finish the supper mom brought thanks to Beth's dangling eye, but still comment on how AWESUM the animated blood and gore was.

The creators don't have to be ashamed. Maybe the complaints don't matter, but if the offended people ACTUALLY stop watching Game Dogs, their hits will go down and The Escapist will pull the show because of the small number of watchers.

The moral of the story, boys and girls, is if you were truly offended by this episode, STOP WATCHING!!! Don't click on the next episode to find out if this one was cannon, or if the creators were just kidding. Don't watch the next one to see if they are still "this bad". Watch ENN a few extra times instead. Then Game Dogs will be gone.

Okay, i was watching this series from the first episode on, and i registrated on the escapist ONLY to coment this episode:

IT WAS GREAT !

Now get (as bloody as possible) rid of chet, bring in more characters like the russians, and you got a good point to start over.

Beth was just annoying, roger was a whiny looser. And chet....oh my god...just kill this idiot.

And please, please.....in the name of anything you belive in, don't make it a "it was just a dream" episode.

To every single person whining about insensitivity: You are the reason they did this. It was created, specifically, to piss you off. By whining, you are encouraging them. You cannot change their minds. You cannot win. That is all.

I disagree. This is the first episode that I enjoyed this much, not only for it's extreme/shock novelty value. Also because it's obvious the authors had something very specific in mind and aren't afraid to experiment with the medium.

The quite bland and uninspired writing and storyline developments always kept me from enjoying the show. This is certainly a very promising trick, although the authors should keep in mind that this kind of stuff is only a surprise as long as it's unexpected. I expect to see an episode where one of the Ruskies dismembers some redshirt for an arbitrary reason, interwoven with clever, if sadistic one-liners. Something more direct and snarky than bond one-liners but not primitive, as in dead baby comedy primitive.

Because if Paranormal Activity 2 is filled with fried chicken jokes and comments about cotten fields the entire african-american audience will obviously love it.

Offending your audience does not get you viewers. The people who make Game Dogs aren't in it to shock and offend people, they're in it to make people laugh. And congrats for being one of those who did. But to people like me who have had loved ones hang themselves, this is pretty fucking far from funny.

LMAO i love it "stfu bethany .. stop saying the word sigh when u sigh" XD keep it up GAME DOGS rule !

Wait, so it was a tie?

That was dark, are all characters dying now, one by one?

PaintyFace:
I cant shake the feeling that they are trying to appeal more to the humor of 13 years olds coming from other sites like 4chan (more than likely brought over by ZP, nothing agaisnt ZP specifically but still) who get a giggle out of watching gorey tasteless shit like that, even by the criteria of dark humor it wasn't funny, there was no timing or tact whatsoever, if someone likes slapstick comedy u dont just cut to someone getting punched in the face, u set up some kind of obserd task or controdictory setting anything to add to the 'humor' aspect, this show went from 'dull but having its moments' to '4chan piece of shit' in one episode, clean up your act or drop the show, because this kind of spectical attracts the flovar of people that this site is better off without

I've been feeling this for a while, and it's why I don't post anymore (I never posted much, but now I don't at all). I've been on this site for two years, which means I spent a time on this website as a 12 year old, and some of my posts for still better thought out than some of the new ones. I much prefered this website when it was less popular.

Lol,

love the profile picture with beth's mangled head.

As for my two cents.... meh, i enjoyed the humour and the bizarrness of it because it was not what i was expecting.

Roger's suicide i thought was a bit harsh though, im not going to stop watching cause of it though

im curious about the 4 clues though

That was just poor story telling on the creators part. Not that it was offensive or too gory, that dos not bother me.

Its when you shovel out crap that you expect us to like it. That shows a lack of understanding of the people who watch your show, in away, makes me think that your opinion of your viewers is rather low as well.

OR your tiring to do what "Ctrl, Alt, Delete" did and wanting drama to start up in the comments,

Case in point:
http://www.escapistmagazine.com/videos/view/zero-punctuation/108-Webcomics

Either way, It's fail.

you are heartless, you know that?

The dangling eye was hypnotic yet relaxing
Right now the creator of Game Dogs are saying
"Wow, they thought this was a real episode. Halloween is right around the corner we got to kill some one."

Oh BTW press Alt-F4 for candy Ha Ha Ha!!!

I'm scared for life now. Thanks for that.

This was by far, the worst thing to ever be put on the Escapist ever. You have this little comedy about dogs making video games, and then you do this. Please for the love of God, never do ANYTHING like this again.

Jeronus:

I read your wall of text and one piece of information stood out in particular. You watched every episode of the series despite hating it and I bet you left a comment about how bad it was every time. You sir, are a troll. An intelligent one, but a troll nonetheless. I like this show and therefore watch it. You obviously hate this show and watch it only to post your displeasure about it. That makes you a TROLL. What forces push you to do this because I don't understand your position. You watch every week therefore supporting the show and then leave a post about how it should be canceled. It is like sleeping with someone you have no attraction to then beat the shit out them for being ugly. Do yourself...NO, do the both of us a favor and STOP WATCHING. You want this show to disappear stop watching and ignore it. If it doesn't disappear, ignore it and accept the fact that some people here actually like this series. I don't force myself through I hit it with my axe every week. I watched half of the first episode and never clicked on it ever again. Get the point!

If you did two seconds worth of research, in fact if you looked to the side of the page for one second, you would see that my grand total post count (before this reply) was 2. 2 posts, that's it. You can even go to my page and click on the link to the other post and see that it's about D+A. I think I'm entitled to state my opinion once, and that sir is what I did. Thank you for reading, and don't waste your time with a reply.

My sincerest apologies for my hasty reply and this will be the last time I bother you so please try to respond to my final question to the best of your abilities. Why did you watch every episode of Game Dogs? It is obvious that you hate this show to no end and yet you have watched it long past the point any normal person would have. Game Dogs is deep into season 2 territory and you still keep watching it despite hating every aspect of the show. As I said before this is my final message to you, there won't be a response no matter how you respond. Answer at your own discretion.

Calatar:

Ultratwinkie:

exactly. most of the people on the escapist are practically hate-filled. the escapist, in a sense its basically Illium from mass effect since its no better than Omega (4chan).

What a tortured metaphor...

Yeah, that made no sense at all.

play mass effect 2 and makes a lot more sense.

Ok. I just join in this site and like to say some words about this.

When you made a game where you deside what character to kill off for the game dogs the show, I gave it a try. I watched few of the episodes and got a better idea what to pick, so I choosed Chet, who seemed the least important or make unresponsible actions on the list, otherwise i would of pick the small dog with a tie on.

I was abit disapointed of the result but i didenn't mind what you go for, however this episode disturbed me

so you gone for beth of one of the main characters, so be it, but why do it in a way so half heartedly and cold on your own creation? you could of done it alittle more nicer then picking a careless way. otherwise it would be done a nicer way or transport one of them off screen one without death. if you really going to kill off a character( wich i perfer you don't) you would give meaningfull but moving ending to it, even if this is apost to be a comady show.

I know i'm thinking alittle too deep on this for a but this comady or not, was not plesent for.

i'm sure your doing a very good work on making this, what i will respect to. but i'll leve you this. "what ever you make, meaningfull or intertaining, funny or not, in the end you should respect your creations, no matter how loude thay may or may not be"

Thank you for reading and my great apolages if I may acted overheaded on this.

That was just uncomfortable. It was like trying to be Pulp Fiction but failing so hard. That episode was just... all kinds of wrong.

They did it for shock value, to get noticed. I've never really liked Game Dogs, but I always watched all the way through, and gave it due consideration. It's still a lot better than Rebecca Mayes and I Hit It With My Axe, so I kept watching. Now, I really regret doing so.

The Escapist wants to allow this sort of **** on the site? Fine. That's not my call. But I'm sure as hell not going to buy any of their merchandise anymore, and I'm certainly not going to watch Game Dogs ever again.

I thought this site was better than this, and that's all I have to say.

It seems I'm not the only one who had a hard time laughing at that.

Don't get me wrong: Gore has its place in the world, even in comedy. Game Dogs has never been that place. There Will Be Brawl was dark, gritty - I expected gore. Not in this show. In Zero Punctuation, I can take jokes about people jerking off with a baby's face. That show is cynical, and I go into it expecting that kind of thing. Game Dogs is not dark and cynical - it's always been lighthearted and tame to me. I've enjoyed it quite a lot in the past, despite what some people are saying.

Not sure if I'll be able to anymore.

Erm...sorry, still not seeing the big connection here.

That makes a lot of sense, and I guess it applies to me too. Gore doesn't bother me in the slightest, but Game Dogs has always been so...well, like you said, light-hearted and fun. And then this gets thrown in, and it was just a complete 180 from everything else the series has done. Maybe if there was some gore from the beginning, this wouldn't have seemed so bad. But it's been about dogs making video games, and that's pretty darn friendly. And now, we have dogs being run over, mangled, and hung...out of nowhere. Takes "shock value" to something else entirely.

geier:

And please, please.....in the name of anything you belive in, don't make it a "it was just a dream" episode.

+1, please oh please no dream episode.

I really enjoyed this episode. It shows how severely unhinged Bob is.

Also, Beth's dangling eye was fun.

I'm sorry I watched that. It was very foul.

i liked thoughts too characters and why did you show us the dead body!! and why dident you kill chet dam when i left it chet was in the lead

Seriously Game Dogs producers? Why? I've loved this series for a while and then... Yeah. Thanks for screwing it over. The series had some great ideas and humour and now its just, well, annoying me. Get back to the good stuff please, I don't care if this gives you some sick pleasure, just don't turn away the people who used to really enjoy the show.

Ok... Um, my friend's dog just got ran over yesterday.... And BEFORE I get flamed for this, hear me.
I thought that I wasn't going to be able to find it funny... (although I did snort in shocked amusement when I noticed it was Bethany that got slapped by the car)

Then, and I don't know how you did it... you made it fucking hilarious. I've never been big on Game Dogs, but you guys have really decided to go nuts and that's made season 2 very strong compared to the very shakey season 1.

The inter sibling bickering was hilarious "It's not rocket science, Bob!"
"Shut your fucking mouth!!" :P

And playing Hip to be Square while Bob screams all of Bethany's iniquities (no doubt gleaned from we Forum creatures) "Try getting a reservation in Dorcia now, you stupid bastard" was actually a stroke of genius.

I don't know what you were smoking when you came up with this, but I highly recommend you keep on doing it- this was dark, messy and fucking hilarious.

Like Metalocalypse or Apocalypse Lane.

EDIT 2:

Hi, I'm back with something critical.

The hanging eye... stopped being funny after 10 seconds. That was just plain horrible
Less of that, and you're on to something good, I think.

I'm really taken aback at the giant leap in quality. Well done, you deserve a pat on the head and a scratch behind the ears for this one.

And yes, I've been one of the main (or at least most vocal) critics of this show in the past.

EDIT:

Poor Roger... I kinda feel bad now that I shot him and Bethany so much in The Hand of Fate :P

Thats all well and good, but can we kill the rest of them now? I mean the show should've never been released from the beginning. You ruined the only good character (Bob, back in series 1) and killed off the only other good character (Betheny)...

Christ could this show get any shittier.

I was fine with the gore, hell I LIKED the gore...

But could you please just kill off this horrible show already?

Arawn.Chernobog:

They just did how many hints do they need to point out.

That was so fucked up I don't even know where to begin. I have do idea what this show is going to become now but I have a feeling its going to be great.

If Chet is then killed next episode, this show has gone from 'shit' to 'shit that killed off everyone I hate'.

*EDIT* What was with the 'A Furwork Orange' tag? I don't see how this has anything to do with A Clockwork Orange.

Makes perfect sense to me. Roger had the hots for Bethany (hint as per last ep), Bethany is run over, giving Roger no reason to live. A rough, bloody and effective segue.
