HURR DURR SHE'S HOT LAWL!

Is that the reaction you wanted?

Falseprophet:
What, no Quistis?

Fun video, though. The woman has mastered hammerspace.

Seconded, on both counts.

Nightfalke:
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.

This right here. All I did while watching this was go "okay, so they slapped a blonde in too much make up, low tops and a skirt to act like she knows about games."

Reading off a script and just working as eye candy and making bad bad jokes. This is ultimately just fan service (gordon freeman as hottest glasses in a place filled with valve fans?...hmmm)

And tune in next week where we play the drinking game - do a shot everytime she pulls something out her clevage yay!

Sadly, I can't be suckered in by an attractive girl in a skirt with a dumb countdown. Sorry Escapist, I'll sick with Extra Credits.

I am...quite surprised. Definitely did not expect something like this from an Escapist show.

I've watched the video for a second time, and I noticed she's right about Freeman, I mean, just look at this big motherfucker

those glasses say "I saved the world twice, I have an MIT title, and I can kick your ass back and forth any day of the week, and I'm smart enough to know it"

(okay, I just went full retard there =P)

Is the Escapist so sort of ideas that it's resorting to 'top whatever of whatever' - a format that requires no intellectual argument and is so individualistic?

This week's was technically the top 3 sexist characters with sunglasses and the top 2 with regular glasses.

Also, The presenter needs to stop waving her hands about while she's talking too. It sounded like she was just reading blandly from a script.

Petty mini-rant over.

Valve fanboy pandering and the short skirt and tight top made me slightly uneasy. I mean I realise its likely sexist or whatever, but I can't take you seriously when you're dressed like that :P

Also, Gordon at the top? Seriously? Those aren't even sexy nerd glasses! Those are square frame "I have a degree in theoretical physics" specs.

Although this series will be comprised mostly of her opinions, I think that this has potential. I found this to be pretty funny at certain parts, and she actually knows her stuff, which surprised me since her appearance (admittedly) made me think she was just a dumb blond... what? It's true! Not my fault stereotypes have ruled my life!

Anyway, keep up the videos! I'll be sure to watch them.

EDIT: One thing that disappointed me was that nobody from Persona 4 was mentioned.

Look at this badass motherfucker!

YUUUUUUUUSSSSSS!!!! Gordon Freeman!!! Physicist in a freaking power suit with a crowbar and a gravity gun!

AC10:

I do feel a bit stereotyped by putting her in a tight fitting shirt and really short skirt though. Yes she's attractive, but that's not why I plan on watching this show and I feel somewhat insulted they think the Escapist won't enjoy game discussion if it doesn't have a hot girl dressed in a somewhat provocative fashion.

Sure it's not absolutely necessary, but it sure helps :D

OT: Great video! Very funny and entertaining. And yeah, Lisa, you're gorgeous. Wear more skirts :D

Zechnophobe:
So, I do not know this Lisa Person, but so far my thoughts:

Kathleen Devere - Real deal, obvious nerd, not over the top, seems like someone who I could relate to in real life.
Rebecca Mayes - Real deal, obvious nerd, slightly different type than I am, but I could imagine her being in my friend circle
Lisa Folies - Not sure if she's just reading a script someone else gave her.

I've noticed a few people saying this about her and I was actually curious enough about her 'cred' to make a quick wikipedia jump. It seems that outside of acting(not just All that, but doing a number of things that definitely fall into the nerdy category) she started up her own gaming website that does reviews and other videos and such.

She may be cute(the outfit and things like pulling stuff out of her cleavage are definitely meant to draw attention to that) and really playing up the blonde stereotype angle in this video, but I think she's the real deal behind it.

I mean come on, according to the credits her cats name is samus!

I think Otacon should have been on this list :P

I mean look:

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.

Wait. wait. WAIT WAIT.

A new show that's funny, with a charming (yeah, yeah, and beautiful) lead who's not only self-deprecating, but has a Han & Chewie shirt, likes eyeglasses on heroes AND cats?

Yeah. I'm just gonna go ahead and declare this the best show on the site. Sorry, Extra Credits, your smart and funny observations on gaming and the human condition have been bumped.

Ok, the show was alright, but Lisa is a bit stale on the dialogue.

If you want people to take you seriously, drop the stupid quirky attitude that every attractive woman always puts on infront of the camera, and start showing more real enthusiasm about what you're talking about. As of now, it's like you're reading it off of a teleprompter.

Also, stop pulling things out of your breasts. "Hi I'm beautiful and I like video games" is not going to appeal to us.

Between this, and fucking pornstars playing D&D, I feel really, really insulted by the Escapist's choice in programming.

Why are we having this series?

Whatever, toplists are always something to watch or read when bored so I guess that's ok.

"Hi there. I'm a woman. But even though I'm super attractive, I also game. I know, crazy right? I'm going to pull some stuff out of my cleavage now and talk about how glasses are sexy because geeks wear glasses and this will make them think I actually want to fuck them. Oh shit, is this meant to be funny? Better attempt some humour!"

Congratulations, you're one step above I Hit It With My Axe.

o dear... the angry cat was by far the best thing in that. didnt realise the escapist needed to use the old "sex sells" routine to get people to watch videos...

I like her :)

Okay honest truth? I admit I was a little turned off by Lisa on first impression, probably because of the perkiness and sexy outfit, although I'm not above admitting I appreciated the look. Like some of the previous posters said, I have adverse reactions to the pretty girls who are fed lines about gaming in order to keep my attention. But towards the end of the video I was becoming amused. Maybe just trying to start off with a bang so we'll pay attention for the first few videos? Then again the topic of this video was about 'sexy glasses' so the outfit definitely helped fit the motif.

I went ahead and looked up ya'lls other stuff on YouTube and I liked it. So I'll a few more. :) Is the kitty going to be in the outro next time?

What does it help, exactly?
The slow death of the escapist?

Oh great, another gamer GURL. Come on Escapist, the notion of females playing video games lost its novelty after I left middle school. Don't insult my intelligence by putting some hot girl in front of a camera and expecting me to drool all over her. If you expect me to take this seriously then she needs to put out some Rebecca Mayes quality stuff, before I just write her off.

Honestly, everyone needs to get off their high horses. Yes it's a pointless video with some eye candy. That's what it is, take it at face value. God forbid a woman be portrayed on the escapist in anything other than sweats and a ponytail.

^this^

That was quite good acctualy, glad I gave this a chance.

Although Duke at the back? naaaaaah

Interesting video, I think I'll enjoy this.

And I was surprised by the end, I did not notice that sexy skirt throughout the video. It made you almost more adorable than the cat. Almost...

Interesting...

Still, why do they say ass and bitch but beep the word fuck? Does this really make sense in some twisted way or was it just to reduce the amount of different swear words to one less than the actual?

For a few moments I thought her cat was named Shamus, that sounded weird yet awesome but when I rewind it turned out to be Samus. :(

Nice episode, and a sneaky way to get on out good side with Gordon Freeman as number 1. If anything, Escapists love him and Valve. March 2010 - never forget!

Edit: and why is everyone taking her cleavage as a mortal insult? It's not there because Escapist is full of "nerds". When putting a video anywhere on the internet it's common sense that a sexy girl would make it more interesting for part of the audience and make them come back, or at least hold the attention for a few minutes.

Also - yay 666th post! I feel like I should add something evil but I can't think of anything at the moment.

Casimir_Effect:

I bet he doesn't even have a degree in physics!

Lies! He knows his physics like he knows what his body looks like (oh wait)! He can use bricks to create a seesaw effect.

MIT EDUCATED.

Seemed pretty lazy.
It's kind of funny - what she did for the intro and outro - but it just seemed a bit like last night she was like "Oh shit, I don't have an intro or outro", then set up some cameras and asked her room mates.
Obviously I don't actually think that's what she did but she didn't seem to bother much.
Other than the detail there I'll just say that first impressions are terrible:
An attractive girl talking about her opinion on shit nobody really cares about. This isn't even a comedy series, it's a discussion/review series by the looks of it, and it is not even close to the standard of the Escapist.
Zero Punctuation
Escape to the Movies
The Big Picture
Extra Credits
Ringing any bells?

Well, this was...new.
Although i like senseless "top X" videos and this was quite fun indeed in a random way, it did make me wonder...
And I'm not gonna end that sentence.

When you said "let's be honest", I turned off the sound. Other than that it was 'aight. Also stop commenting on her looks guys. Just pretend it's some regualar person up there dressed in a full body suit talking about games

Actually, the way you pronounce 'Fan' it means the devil and is the swedish swearword of choice.
Similar in use to the english 'fuck'

Example:

I enjoyed that.

For a lot of reason.

Two of them you happened to be using as a prop closet.
