Top 5 with Lisa Foiles: Top 5 Most Ridiculous In-Game Vehicles

Another entertaining video from Lisa. Keep it up. Oh and I like the waves! Do curls next.

I nominate the mecha tengu from RA3 to that list.

You used Scrubs music. You are now my favorite person...of the day.

*yawn* boring. Last one for me.

No Ducati here. Just a Suzuki C50 cruiser.

Also, I'm disappointed this list didn't have the motorcycle from Full Throttle. That thing kicked so much ass. You even get to upgrade it with a hover fan!

This show is confusing me because the girlie nature of it is rather appealing to me. I guess I've reached the manly threshold when it comes to the video game world.

Am I the only one who was expecting to see a clip of Kramer chasing Newman on their runaway rickshaw?

Good work Lisa keep it up! One of my picks would have been Lombardia from Wild Arms 3: A cyborg dragon that you first have to beat in a boss fight, and then can fly you around and shoot missiles is pretty absurd yet awesome at the same time.

I enjoy top 5 lists, and its nice to see some eye candy going through some of the older games from the past which I myself have found interesting too.

My problem with Lisa is that she acts, and sounds, like an actress. I don't know if its the way she presents herself (soooo much like chobot the robot), but she does't seem genuine, and makes me question if she really is the fun loving gamer who has played all these various games which she loves and has enthusiasm for, or if its all just an act.

So its not about her gender, but that she doesn't seem genuine whatsoever

a shoei helmet!!!
i have one as well!
well, it is my second one... due to some unexpected contact ...
anyways... here in germany we have some roads without speedlimits.
so you wont get tickets there... but if you crash ... well...
you know the meaning of the word "prison" right?
it's the same meaning as in german.
(but we do not have death-penalty so... yay!!!)

Reading the comments for her past 3 videos have completely made me lose faith in the Escapist.
I have not seen such a collection of negative sombre people in my life.
I mean even a bloody new forum constitution was passed due to the immense negativity and attacks from the first... ( that probably and a culmination of other similar cases)
A new show that's different comes on and you guys are no better then a bunch of stupid medieval peasants with pitchforks screaming in unison " ITS A WITCH BURN HER"
I enjoyed the first two videos they felt less forced and natural then this one and I cant help to think that's a result of this pathetic slandering.
Didn't your mothers teach you that if you havn't got nothing nice to say dont say anything at all? Positive criticism is what fuels art and what makes things flower. But your PERSONAL OPINIONS generated from some pathetic notion of whats right and wrong, how someone should act or shouldn't act or what someone should WEAR is truly just wow.

It is seriously dissapointing that Schpeltiger is a scooter. I also no longer regret forking out all that money for my Ducati now.

Also love the sad Scrubs music.

Kudos for the sad Scrubs music.

Sennz0r:
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.

Are you Hugh Laurie?

Its a shame adventure games are dead, grim fandango was just toooo awesome.

"..I just wanted it to be a motorcycle"

yea, me too, totally with you there.
I agree on Sweet Tooth too, that image is permanently burned in my mind after playing a few hours of twisted metal.

orc1231515:
i'd say that the leviatan from Unreal Tournament is a lot more ridiculus than that gyro daddy

why not the scorpion buggy with it's retractable razors that cuts deep into crowded areas?

i loved the Bone Wagon btw...

because the leviatan is basicaly an ion canon/fortres on weels, though the scorpion is wicked.

Another enjoyable episode to pass a few minutes, nice work.

jonyboy13:
Same problems as with the two first episodes even though a lot of people asked for atleast slight changes.
Not gonna keep watching but atleast the topic was amusing.
Only joke that was actually funny was the last music at the end and then Lisa ruined that too.
Well, I'll stick with Bob.

These were probably done in a batch (if Suzan Arendt's comments last week are anything to go by), so I seriously doubt it's practical to make changes, however minor to the next video along.

Think about it; If you created 6 videos, even if you're still working on more, you can't really change the ones you've already done. - The earliest opportunity to work in any viewer feedback, is whatever you're working on at the time. (wether that be the 2nd video, or the 30th. It all depends.)

Meanwhile, I found that bit at the end leaning slightly towards the creepy...

I think you could do weirder in Twisted Metal. Especially Black. Repent!

Tinq:
I feel in the minority. Yes, these videos are more or less a way to just put Lisa on the internet in various outfits, but I think she's funny and charismatic and at least spends her five minutes on topic. I enjoy them without irony and without shame and this one was pretty great in my opinion. 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.

Well said! I was actually pretty repulsed when I Hit it With my Axe aired, but not with the people in it! I was pissed off with how the marketed it- Look! Pornstars and strippers!! You like those!!

Which is true.... but this is a place of culture, damn it! :P Ok, fine... but you know what I mean. I'm sure they all love their DnD, but I just thought it was... weird...

And people give THIS show flack? She's pretty funny, yes, she's attractive too, but it doesn't at all become the focus. I like funny people talking about games and she's obviously played the games she's on about, so what's the harm, guys?

Anyway, good video! Now if you'll excuse me I'm off to ask my bank for a loan so I can buy a vehicle...

An ice-cream van...

Lisa, you have totally eradicated any vestige of crush I may have had on Soleil Moon Frye.

Sweet Tooth is the name of the car, though. Also, Saints Row 2 has a UFO and Gyrocopter? To the Christmas list it goes.

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.

A good double standard: Olivia Munn. Kevin Pereira. It's not "Who gets the most shit?" It's "Who gets shit? Who doesn't?"
Morgan Webb is another good example. Pretty? Oh definitely. Supermodel? No, and she could probably crack a walnut with those mandibles. Still: Pretty = Not a gamer. Blair Butler, aka Girl!Sessler? Definitely a gamer. I guess Ms. Foiles is just that stunning? (Don't ask me)
(And of course Ms. DeVere is from Canada and so she gets a pass from gamers. Then again, technically so is Ms. Webb. I might need to rethink this.)

You... you speak of the fabled Auto-Bahn!! O_o

*goes all dreamy eyed*

Wait a second... I have an EU passport! :D
*jumps in the car, drives to ferry*

Hey, leaping out of flaming vehicles in Saints' Row 2 is half the fun.

"I want to break some laws with you" Pretty sure I did a double-take when I heard that...

piscian:

I'll give her one more before calling it quits.

I totally agree!
Now some would say that it's because she was an actress (if being a NICK kid counts) BUT I say it makes her come across as even more phony.

I don't know how thing work where you're from but where I come from; If the majority of mail or comments are negative... Then it's time to make some major decisions.

Look at "Game Dogs"... It was a much HATED show and barely into the second season, when it was canceled.

Criticism (be it positive or negative) has the ability to be constructive. Hey, I hate it when people bash my works but how else am I going to get any better. The same can be said for anyone or anything.

she is whiter than cocaine

-assholeness removed-

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

Yup, two kinds of vitriol can be spawned in the male nerds who view this: Defensive fear by those who are attracted and don't want to admit it, and indignant at the attempt to be lead around by the balls.

Personally, I really enjoy this series.

Yes. I would also like to break some laws, suddenly.

What is it with women loving motorcycles?

It's like they enjoy that feeling of raw power straddled between their legs.

One of the things that really impresses me about these videos is the range of games: old, new, lots of different platforms, it's nice watching these and knowing that just about anything could pop up.

They're still fairly bland and not terribly funny though, I'm not sure if I'll be watching the next one - I might wait a month or two and come back to see if it's improved.

I lol'd. I thought you were like JD BEFORE the sad music from scrubs started playing. I'm sure there's more ridiculous vehicles, but I can't think of any at the moment :(
and if you tell me where you got that top then I promise* that I will get you that motorbike. I want it so bad. :(

*not a binding commitment

I have a ducati 1098 but somehow I don't believe you want to break any laws with me.

J

Least favorite so far really.

First two were much better in my opinion and I'm still waiting for Lisa's cat to make a comeback.
