Uh.........Riiiiiiiiiiiiiiight.

So did you guys just give up or what?

It wasn't offensive, it wasn't funny, it was just......weird.

Wooohoo! Awesome! It made me giggle.

PaintyFace:
I certainly have doubts now about whether I want to be associated with a site that produces something like this.

And yet, it has Extra Credits.
They want their writing and community to be eloquent, and then they have all these crude humor shows.
The Escapist never ceases to confuse me.

best episode yet.

Karloff:

George Palmer:
interesting.... people havent seemed to found the 4 clues yet.

edit: my bad. One of them has been found.

Mmmm. I think most are too busy looking at the shark Game Dogs just jumped to worry about clues, TBH.

Clues? I am getting curious... damn it, is this a ploy for you guys to make me to watch the entire series?

Perhaps they want diversity?

Deeleted:
Why kill Beth? Chet is by far the most annoying one.

Exactly! I quite agree.

And Roger is the 2nd most annoying, but I like him though.

That's it, I'm calling it. This is the worst animated show to ever hit the Escapist (non-animated was I Hit it With my Axe, but that's another story).

Seriously, are you so desperate for ratings that you're going to have a flash game to decide what the next plot point is, and then just do a shock episode to get people talking? Don't answer that, you already did. Congratulations, you hacks, you got me talking: this is the worst show ever to hit the Escapist. You have no sense of comic pacing or interesting dialogue (a killer in a show that is 90% dialogue), and the best attempt at "drama" you've come up with so far is the sort of over-the-top shock-site bullshit I would expect from 4chan, not a website I actually have some damn respect for.

The sooner this show gets taken down, the happier I'll be, and believe me, after this episode, your show's days are numbered.

Yeah. Thumbs down, Russ. Thumbs way, way down.

I'm hoping this is just some sort of a prank the creators are playing on us. Because seriously, when you think about it, this was completely arbitrary - the whole thing. There was NO NEED of getting rid of any characters in the series. They played their roles well, were likeable and presented different social/character types.

So yeah, if this is in fact what's happening, it seems completely random and unnecessary.

I agree. Unless the series is over, it didn't actually achieve anything (I only really found the arguing over the law to be amusing).

That be lame for it to be over, they didn't have a dream episode where they are all in the apocalypse lane universe or anything :(

So this show started out with 3 dogs making video games, now you kill off two of them. Congratulations for understanding your original plot sucked, but this is a piss poor way of turning the show around.

I though only 1 character was supposed to die. What`s the deal with Bethany and Roger dying

"sobbing, puts gun to head" WHY YOU BASTERDS!! BANG...

Ok, you can jump out now with the joking... any time now. Come on, please?

George Palmer:
interesting.... people havent seemed to found the 4 clues yet.

interesting... this show still sucks, and this episode is still offensive and horrible

better be non canon

You don't know how happy you made me by killing both off. I laughed out loud this entire episode. THANK YOU!

Noone has a gun to your head forcing you to watch this show. If you don't like it move along with your day. If I hated something like LRR I wouldn't watch the videos or go trolling thier forums.

... OK this was needlessly morbid. Although I would have thought more people would actually enjoy the morbidity of this episode.

This element aside, it was a genuinely funny episode in my book. Favorite comeback: "What about other times?" XD

That was . . . bad.

It started off well with the new character and all that, and the dialogue was funny. And, I can see where you were trying to desensitize us and make it seem too over-the-top to be shocking. It kinda worked after a minute of Beth sitting in the back, but that attack was just too shocking and graphic. Not funny.

So, the whole selling knives thing (especially ones called the "Hobo Elimnator") is okay but the minute someone is actually killed thats too far. This show has shocking this season, so if you don't like it, don't watch.

Who mentioned the knives? I didn't. It was meant for comedic effect, and did it very well. This is a comedy, and while gratuitous cartoon gore can be funny when done to a certain degree, they missed it with this episode.

And telling me not to watch it is kind ass-backward. I do like the show, I just didn't like this episode.

Sorry for mentioning past episode, but I was merely trying to point at the humor on this show is now bordering on what some would call sick. Thats why I'm why you complained about the episode, and I told you to stop watching if you don't like it because this is pretty much how this series is going. DUH!

I was ok with the episode for the most part untill Rodger committed suicide (I only just noticed it).

Come on people lighten up ^^. It was a dark episode in a really light hearted comedy, how can you not find that juxtaposition funny. And even if you didn't so what? Every series has a few episodes that are not to your taste this is hardly the crime against art and humanity that it's made up to be. Thirdly: it's hip to be square ^^

4chan has made me immune to this kind of snuff/ruff... Didn't even flinch...

American psycho reference was damn funny though.

First I just want to say that I've been watching all sorts of videos on The Escapist and surveyed the forums from a distance. So far, I've really enjoyed the intellectual debate and general quality of the site's features. I previously watched all of the preceding Game Dogs episodes and thought it was an alright show, chuckle-worthy most of the time, but truly funny during the Woofcraft wedding and Knives episode. However, this video has forced me to register to share my opinion.

This is without a doubt, one of the worst videos I have ever seen. Randomly killing characters who have been developed during two seasons with little sensitivity or wit surrounding their demise is not at all funny. I'm normally a fan of dark humor, but this was utterly tasteless. The extremely over-the-top violence was not handled in a mature and interesting fashion. It was disgusting and extremely immature. I highly doubt I will continue watching this series if only for the lack of any narrative logic in this episode. For example: why was Bethany crossing that street? There were no buildings around, no other cars, and she had no purpose for being there. In addition, Roger's death by hanging made absolutely no sense; he was quite happy in previous episodes, and suicide is not funny.

Overall, I was disappointed by this episode more than anything else. It was demented, illogical, and very poorly executed.

can all the people who have nothing to say except boo-hoo this show sucks please stop wasting everyone's time in the comments section. i mean the show is it episode 26 and every week it's the same damn comment of you suck, this show sucks, blargh! isn't it just trolling at this point. seriously if you don't like it stop watching it. and for all the people offended and disgusted by this episode...what? your getting bent out of shape because the fictional,cartoon doggies dies...wow. enough's enough jeez.

"Did you know it's illeagal to rape alligators in sweden during fleganfugal" priceless, but really why her, she was one of my favorites, the funniest part was that it wasn't a crime in the first place, odd

somehow I'm not surprised that the female character died... as much as I think more of the other characters deserved it more.... no.. just... no WRONG!!

Well in all honesty this is completely different from what the series has done before, it had light-hearted puns, and a few video game jokes and in one episode they changed it to killing off 2 of the main charcters randomly, with no relation to plot, and doing it in very gruesome ways, saying well here ya go we ran out of ideas so we killed 2 of the characters. Im not saying a show can't be violent and still be funny.But you can't just change in one episode from video game-ish humor to hitting a girl with a car and a guy commiting sucide, this is something id execpt from robot chicken(Im not insulting robot chicken at all im just saying its there type of humor), and remeber when this show used to be about dogs making games. Im not trying to insult the writers or anything but can they look at this and honestly saying this makes sense

I think it's more of this actually.

I find it hilarious that so many people are butthurt over this.

Guys, it's a cartoon. It was the episode where they were going to kill someone off. It's in the description. If you were disturbed by it, you should have stopped watching the moment it happened. But no, you chose to continue watching. Therefore, stfu. Theyre animated dogs for crying out loud. Drawn on a computer program. Given voices by voice actors. This is no worse than almost anything on cartoon network/adult swim.

I honestly thought it was funny. Bethany was fricking annoying. I don't understand why you killed off two characters, but meh. Be interesting to see where it goes from here. Bob is the best.

Wow I never really thought I'd say this but GameDogs and the people who work to make it really have hit rock bottom.

I mean really? I wouldn't be surprised if I saw this kind of thing on youtube written by some juvenile idiot but not here. Who ever thought this would be remotely funny really needs to put down his pen and wonder how the hell he got to where he is today.

I never liked GameDogs but at least you were trying but now? Jesus this is near enough /b/ humour never mind anything else.

Edit: The only part of me that is offended by this is how poorly it was handled and how unfunny it was, I mean good god did you write this during your toilet break?

mento 2425:
I VOTED FOR ROGER!
WHY BETH!
WHY!
:*(

I think it was supposed to be a twist,let the one with the least votes die

I wasn't shocked when Beth got hit, but I was irked. I had assumed the Hand of Fate thing was a joke, because the concept of choosing a character to die by playing a flash game was so obviously, incredibly bad and I assumed the Game Dogs people, who had actually started being funny as of the second season, would realize that. Headless Kevin and Mr. Yee getting shot in the face was funny, because both of them were clearly unharmed, which created a bizarre juxtaposition between the expected effects of the gore and what actually happened. Bob's suddenly going nuts was a good way to turn an uninteresting character into a more entertaining one. The knives episode was probably the funniest Game Dogs ever, because while I never really burst out laughing, I was smiling through nearly the whole thing.

You know what I was expecting? I was expecting this to all just be a dream, or a fantasy, or something. I had kind of assumed, particularly when Bob was beating Beth's not-quite-corpse and ranting on about it, that this was all going to end up being a Take That to a forums community which I assumed was calling for blood, something in the vein of "do you see how incredibly STUPID that would have been? Yes? Okay, good, let's move on." But no, you were actually DEAD SERIOUS when you thought this would be funny. Everything that was actually funny about this episode (the stuff with the lawbook, mostly) could've been done without killing anyone, or by just killing a faceless extra.

And the suicide? Did you consider actually making a joke about that bit? Or somehow actually making your comedy show comedic? Just a thought.

As for "the four clues," if this were any other episode, I'd watch it once or twice more to try and find them. Heck, I watched the knives episode twice just because it was funny. But this episode sucked, everything you've been doing right in season two was probably accidental, and trying to sift through clues to dig up plot points in a series that's likely going to go even further downhill from here will just be a waste of my time.

if there really dead then im not watching anymore
