Tell me this is not top 5 material.

Agreed, but maybe it works better as a showcase of Dante's awesomeness.

My cousin has that bike, it is pretty damn awesome.
(He makes mad amounts of money doing animation, he won an Oscar)
I also dislike the amount of make-up Lisa wears, I cannot look at her.

Lovin the Scrubs reference. Also, good show, you make my tuesdays brighter

Why is it that the second nerds see a pretty girl talking about video games, they freak out and do everything they can to discredit her based off of her words or appearance? I know I have lady issues myself, but what's all of your guy's (or gal's) problem? See for example, Jessica Chobot, Morgan Webb, Olivia Munn, Rinry Game Game, or that chick from Hey Ash Whatcha Playing.

Don't be afraid. Those women are just in your computer. They can't really hurt you.

I don't like the first three ladies on your list. G4 *shudders* is an abomination, as is IGN. At least here at the escapist they have a little dignity when reviewing games. I honestly wish the Escapist would hire Mrs. Foiles to write actual articles, she's actually got some interesting stuff to say.
The last two I'm neutral as I didn't know of their existence until a few minutes ago.

I agree! Them damn walking people ruining all my fun when i try to reach top speed with my car...And don't get me going on the cops either...

OT: Damn, That was some ridiculous vehicles.

Goddamit...I had a feeling that UFO could be flown...Now I don't own SR2. Eh.

I've been seeing these videos lying around the escapist for a few weeks. Ignored them thinking that they would be nothing more than shallow nerd bait. Using an obviously attractive yet totally insipid figure head to reel in the views. Hoping people would be drawn by the initial hook of an attractive nerd girl and forgive the otherwise vapid content.

Seems I was correct.

Count me out of this one. It's no better than that 'I'm a pornstar and I play board games!' series that had a few horny teens gripped some months ago.

Seriously dude? Yes it's not going to inspire some deep intellectual topics & start you off on a voyage of self discovery, but does everything have to? I find it a nice dose of nostalgia rather than the usual reviewers who forget about everything before 2004. I think you're just giving the classic knee-jerk reaction of an attractive girl talking about games, therefore you have to hate it to portray some pseudo-intellectual image of yourself. If you don't find any value in it, fair enough, but sometimes things can be entertaining without having to be challenging etc.

I think if she wore some pants, like, half of the people whining about these videos would shut up.

When I read the title my first thought was the boss battles from Earthworm Jim 3D. He surfs around a liquid covered arena on the belly of a pig that shoots missiles out of it's ass. The pig of course squeals every time you jump or speed up. Not that great a game on the whole but man I liked those parts.

On second thought, I guess the pig is a mount, not a vehicle.

I'm sorry Miss. Foiles, but you just can't seem to find your voice on this site. Not that I'm siding with the "you're so pretty, you can't be nerdy" crowd, but there's just not a lot holding this show together.

If you make a Top 5/10 show, it had better be really unique and catchy or else it'll get shallowed up by the thousands of competitors.

Donkey lady, thought it wasn't deliberated.

If she likes motorcycles so much, she should have gone with the Lightcycle. I only know it from some flash games on the internet, and the TRON Legacy game probably came out after she made this video, but it would've been nice.

Dunno about that Ducati, but this is the bike I want to own.

Hurray for Scrubs music!

How come all of the guys who make videos don't appear in them, they just have graphics?

It's almost as if this was a cheap attempt to pander to the lowest common denominator, but I'm sure its not that, I'm sure this chick really is totally into motorbikes and totally got all the references in this video, yeah that sounds likely.

I am only going to disagree with this part. While this series seems vapid , the aforementioned pornstar show was actually entertaining because they were playing an interesting and humorous game of D&D and they just happened to be in the adult film industry. Those girls were just playing their normal game, they were just being taped during those sessions.

-assholeness removed-

To be honest, people just don't like being pandered to. And thats what alot of people see this as.

Aww, I liked the assholeness. It just seems like any time any woman talks vidja games, there's lots of people who see it as pandering. "She can't play video games! She's too pretty!" with the hidden subtext being "I justify being single and alone because I clearly cannot share common interests with a lady I'd want to copulate with." Again, I'm probably just projecting my own insecurities here.

Pscht, nice bike, but I like this one better:

500Bhp, 300mph top speed =D

A pretty girl talking about games!
...but it didn't make me laugh. Was that supposed to be funny?

Somehow I completely managed to miss the first two episodes. Guess I'll go have a look around.

I expected the Pandora's Box from Devil May Cry 4 to be on the list
image
and is it just me of is the theme at the end a remix of this song?

image
What ever happened to this thing, anyway?

What about the Deuce in Brutal Legend? Although I guess that was more cool/awesome than ridiculous.

Another fun top 5.I dig Lisa´s style. I never played any of those games except Twisted Metal Black but i can say that the rest seem bizzare enough to make the list.

its called Garry's Mod... nuff said about ridicolous vehicles ;)

Tinq:
I can't believe people watch "I Hit It With My Axe" or "Jersey Shore" but, really, if you're resigned to not like this, find something you do like, instead.

I'm curious. What about "I Hit It With My Axe" did you feel made it unwatchable, if you don't mind me asking?

I don't know what changed, but I actually really liked this one. I watched the first two and found them rather dull (and a tad bit insulting, but that's all been discussed before by dozens of (now banned) members), but hey, I decided to leave the series in peace and not complain about it.
I was bored enough to watch another one even though I wasn't really planning on it, but this one actually entertained me greatly. I don't know, somehow her acting seems less forced or something. The sarcasm she uses comes off as actually funny this time. Guess she just needed to get into it. I'll be looking forward to the next one.

I watched the first two episodes, and she made me laugh at least once or twice. So, yeah! I'll keep watching this. The whole "pretty girl on a vid" aspect just kinda faded out for me by the end of the first episode. She pretty much might not even be there for all I care, as long as the material is good. This third episode didn't really do it for me.

Charming.

argrargleblarg she's a horrible excuse for feminity and is only using her sex because she knows that it will entice the hopeless nerds that make up the escapist.

You guys do realise that making comments like that implies that you are a hopeless shutin nerd who immediately notices such things as a hot chick instead of the video itself? Someone who isn't a hopeless social reject might make note of the fact that yes, she is attractive, but only someone who is convinced every example of femininity is an attempt to trick him will make such a big deal out of it.

As a side note, I love the people who claim to be asexual who come onto videos like this specifically to comment about how little she turns them on. Great, we get it, you don't believe in love or sex or any of that stuff, it hasn't been interesting since the late nineties, you're as pathetic as someone who goes on about sex all the time.

Anywho, I had a point here, there it is.

I like the videos, I like the presenter, I like the topics she's chosen so far, and I hope she will be a member of the Escapist for many years to come.

Now it's just a boring top 5 show. I don't care anymore.

I've got nothing against women reviewing games or being involved in the culture for that matter. In-fact I quite like it.

I didn't like Mayes Muses or whatever she was called. But I didn't complain. Because the fact that she was a women wasn't the crux of her videos. (She just sang purposefully terrible songs about games.) Or Susan Arendt's Video review supplements. I don't have anything against those. And by your logic I should.

What does annoy me about this series is that it all hangs on her being an attractive nerd girl. Would anybody honestly watch this if it was just some dude. Who wasn't attractive?

It's just sexual pandering to the horny school boy demographic.

If nothing else it's degrading.

Wow, the whining is a little ridiculous. Regardless, I think she's got a cute show going (I always love those "top 5" kind of things), and she's interesting too. Sure, she's pretty, but I like how animated she is when she presents her topics. She's not boring to watch.

I'm hoping her show sticks around. I like it. :)

...Why did she ignore the one wheeled motorcycle in pokemon coliseum?

I might trade my springer soft-tail for that ducati if you came as part of the deal, Lisa :D

Personally thought Axel's Armed attached Giant wheels imagemade for a more ridiculous ride than Sweettooths :P shoot you even had a screen shot of the ridiculousness when talking about Sweettooth XD

p.s. I routinely do 70mph on a 40mph road going to work every morning! You can do it too if you come to NYC between 5-6 am get on the RFK (Triborough) Bridge from the Grand Central Parkway! (Note you will be among the slow cars on the road) XD

Understandable. Only example I can really think of is Kathleen from LRR, people don't flip shit there. It comes down to how cultured you want yourself to appear. I think. That or mature. Probably the mature one.
