why can't you live next to me?

I actually found the video really entertaining :)

I'm a gay guy with many female friends, so I actually liked seeing Lisa with her own show. As for the "OMG, SOMEONE WITH TITS HAS A SHOW!", seriously?
Well, when most of our shows are all voiced entirely by men (ZP, Doraleous, Unskippable, Unforgotten Realms) or almost the whole cast is male, why not have some girl-run shows?

And as for her "ditzy-blonde" thing everyone is saying, no. You haven't even begun to SEE ditzy if you think she is.
I once had a 30 minute discussion on a bus with a girl, explaining the difference between an engineer and a scientist. And I still don't think she understood. (She wasn't a random, she was a friend of a friend)
Lisa actually seems pretty smart. If anything, she's just playing it. (Especially the part about "I totally think glasses, like, make you look smarter")

Well, I'm so far pleased with the show, made me laugh, and it mentioned Gordon Freeman. Also, crowbar rampage was oddly hilarious...probably because that's the crap I'd do XD.

I look forward to the next episode!

Zomg, this is "All That"

That was actually really good. The jokes were actually funny because they were pulled off so well... like many others, I wasn't expecting much but was really pleasantly surprised.

I'll be keeping up with the series!

Was thinking about it, since you are hawt and you love video games, you could make a porn website cosplaying video games characters instead. You would make more cash and have more fun, no doubt. :P

I feel like I was just eye raped by a very horny cathulu.

Although I watched the entire thing, I can only feel as if I am being portrayed as a steriotypical basement dweller. Clearly this is the target audience they are trying to capture. Either that or the horny teenager.

This Lisa is more then likely a nice person, but I can't help but get the feeling that she's a complete idiot and that she's just reading a script and not delivering her honest opinion. Clearly she is not a true gamer, more a fan girl being waved at us like a peice of cooked stake to a hungery dog. Geez thanks for demeaning and also reinforcing the steriotypes we are trying so hard to break.

Perhaps they are trying to appeal to the female gamers out there with the topic. Because thats clearly not a topic that many males would find interesting. Although I can see its quite obvious why most would watch it. But really even most female gamers have a bit more intelligence then to be interested in who wears the sexiest glasses.

I can't believe such tripe would even surface from the untarnished name that "was" the Escapist. It kind of seems as if the group is selling out by using this video.

Peice of advice to the editor;

If you want to stay cool and want to change the way people view gamers or gaming. Don't use a conflicting video segments.

When we have quality videos like extra credits, ZP, ENN and loading ready run or even movie bob. Who all show a purpose, a statement or a message. Then you use this dribble of a video that clearly mocks the community with its meat wavery. You should be ashamed of your self.

Well she knows her audience.

Cool, new series and it didn't suck! Catch you next time with more of your top fives.

Also, I laughed my ass off at the people getting banned for, well, being morons :P

Fuck yeah Freeman!

Yeah, good series, look forward to more. Some people are complaining about the whole OMGHAWT!1 thing but it's not that bad, however, a longer skirt can be nice, or jeans.

Too much brightness... Can't see any of her facial features....

This was awful.

One minute was more than enough suffering for me.

QCX:
-snip-

I don't believe that. It's published by the Escapist and the Escapist know their people. I doubt they'd let that slide if they truly believed that was what was happening.

Also, stop bitching about the topic not being heavy enough for you. It's just for fun. Not every video series has to have an in-depth analysis of the moral, cultural and socil implications of gaming as a medium.

hail the fucking crowbar!!!!

looks like my cat...if she was skinner

Meh. I'm going to give you the benefit of the doubt and assume you are actually a gamer. So stop pulling things out of your bra and wear something longer than 3 inches please. It makes you look like one of those bimbos companies hire just to have tits near their products

Casimir_Effect:
Freeman fakes the glasses!
Think about it, why aren't the frames visible on the screen? Why do they never get splattered? He only wears them for photoshoots.
I bet he doesn't even have a degree in physics!

SHUT YOUR WHORE MOUTH. YOU SHUT IT RIGHT NOW.
Just... just shut up!
It's a lie!
:(

s0m3th1ng:
There was a cat? I didn't notice it from my retinas being seared by your whiteness.
Stop filming on the surface of the sun?

Yeah, I noticed this too. She needs to put on some kind of makeup or something, because clearly the lights she uses while filming flush out her skin tone.
As for the video itself, I enjoyed a few of the jokes, and Lisa seemed to be aware what parts were lamer and played with it. But the list itself was very boring. I think it was a bad choice of subject.
Also, please wear something longer over your legs. You were wearing jeans before. That skirt is incredibly distracting.

Escapist paid her more then Blistered Thumbs I'm guessing? =P Well grats on your own show anywho... I guess...

..
lol Wtf was this? XD

Interesting...

People bash on MovieBob for being a misogynistic pig, but are cheering when this gets put on the Escapist? I think this series is going to do more to alienate women from gaming culture than any of MovieBob's rants.

Oh riiiiight. She has boobs and a short skirt, therefore all is forgiven.

I'd be more suspicious if the link on the front page had her in sexy poses plastered all over it. However, as of now it's just a grey textured box, which leads me to believe her being gorgeous and dressed somewhat appealingly is more of a side effect of her being attractive and having a particular taste in clothes than a cheap marketing crowd-drawing tool.

Well, the plain grey box has been replaced with a full body shot of her...so there goes THAT theory...

Welcome to the Escapist. I remember you from one cameo from Angry Joe show.

Good start. Looking forward for the next top 5.

What the hell did I just watch?!?

...other than that it was pretty good.

Why use an Enya song as backgrond to Albert Wesker?

That's just not...

I haven't read every comment (400+). Also i don't have any knowledge of Lisas history, perhaps it's a joke amongst her and her fans. But I'm still going to bring this up:

It's not funny when people speak in languages they don't know or master. Especially not when they try to speak Swedish. Please don't try to speak Swedish again. I had to rerun your phrase 3 times to actually get what you were saying. It's embarrassing. Seriously. Also, get some clothes on!

Other than that, good vid!

While I won't dismiss the possibility of her appearance being used as a selling point, I'm kind of astonished by the reaction. It's as if gamers are appalled by a traditionally attractive women, so much so that they've gone far enough to automatically discount her as having no meaningful insight or merit of worth.

I've checked out her gaming site (yes, she runs her own gaming site, with videos and reviews) and there's no denying she's genuinely passionate about the same games everyone here is. Some people are just naturally attractive, but based on her cred I'd say in her case it's less of a crutch and more of an added perk.

Holy shit, that actually was swedish! *looks at my avatar and feel a silly sense of pride*

Didn't know what to expect, but I liked it. It made me laugh. I'll keep watching.

Also, Googling her up brings some hot pics up... Doesn't fell really allright that she gets to be at The Escapist.

The level of mysogyny in these comments is ridiculous, but expected.

That was actually quite entertaining but personally Travis Touchdown > everyone else.

I enjoyed your video a lot, just enough humor and educated analysis

1. If she wasn't as hot, this would have been kinda boring. Too long.

2. The sound sucked. Was she standing in the Great Canyon?

3. Thinking about it: for those characters like Freeman it chould be interesting, if they could loose or break their glasses, so you don't see right.

4. How could those 2 dorks not suggest her to strip? *duh* Isn't that the obvious choice?

[/jk]

Ah well... I'll probably watch the next one anyway... you time-sucking bastards!

Wow, there's a lot of comments on this... which is good from a marketing standpoint - heck I usually don't post anything! Just adding two cents (CAD):
First off, not sure why people are getting so upset about (defendOrs and critics). What exactly made anyone thing the Escapist wouldn't use any method to increase viewership?

I'll whole heartedly admit, given the title alone I wouldn't have watched this video - it honestly sounded as pointless as a politician teaching ethics. The cute girl on the title image piqued my curiosity, as for the video itself... meh. Nothing to get worked up about one way or the other, I agree with others who commented she doesn't seem like any type of gamer but perhaps... later on the episodes will get better (cough).

Will I watch another episode of "Cute girl talks about stuff" ? Meh, it beats cable news.

KITTY!

Fun little show, delivered by an adorable girl with an epic cat. I'm on board. :D

If her first video was something a little less banal than "Top 5 Glasses", I'm not sure we would be having this discussion. But put a pretty girl in front of a green (or blue) screen and have her what looks to be reading a script about fashion in video games... You are bound to get this reaction, no matter her gaming pedigree. I'm not pissed off that she's pretty (good for you girl!)...I'm pissed off that she is just perpetuating the 'gamer' stereotype that ZOMG BEWBS!

If her gaming passion was more prevalent in this video, I'd be cheering her on like everyone else. If she said something more substantial than 'ZOMG Gordan Freeman is so hot', I'd be more interested.

So I'm not discounting her as having no insight because she's sexy, I'm discounting her because she didn't say anything insightful.
