Don't listen to the haters. They're just angry that they missed all the inside jokes. And honestly, if you read the Escapist, you should have gotten 70% of the jokes.

Anyway. I laughed jovially. Bravo!

Hmmm, not really feeling this one if I'm honest... American sense of humour maybe? I dunno...

Pretty funny. I am appoint
Please Russ can we have some more?

Certainly different from what we've had on the site before. Good luck guys.

Awesome Pilot! I saw it when the film fest came around. I'm really excited for this show! :) Keep up the good work and welcome to the Escapist!

You need a closing theme pronto. Otherwise, great show. I thought this was an even better pilot than Game Damage, Yahtzee's similar but unfortunately failed experiment.

I was wondering when any of this past year's winners were going to start producing their series'. I'm glad this one pulled through, it was certainly my favourite from the film fest.

Keep it up!

All right! Another awesome weekly show, I hope!

Really good for a pilot. Can't wait to see what else these guys have in store.

I must admit, I'm not terribly impressed with what I've seen. The deliveries seem clunky and awkward, and the comedy itself seems weak and not very funny. The show may have some potential if they improve their material and delivery. I'll watch it a few more weeks, but I won't hold my breath.

Sorry, but the show had difficulty holding my attention. It just didn't interest me...though the song at 4:25, I think, caught my attention. Was that from Persona 3?

Epic, the trials guy is awesome WOOOOOO!

Also what is that song that the guy is listening too on his iPod, i have heard it before god dammit!

That was pretty funny, good job.

I wasn't feeling it, but I'll watch more at least. It's better than porn star DND though.

First sketch was funny, the rest were a bit meh. Cooking Mama transitions were pretty good.

Advice: shorter sketches, but more of them. Keeps the energy up, and makes people forget about the jokes that fall flat.

I think this has potential, if they can sort out their intial hiccups. Like how most of them can't act, especially the dude from the 'hard drive full' sketch. If they work on it, I could see myself chuckling more, there were a few moments the were laughworthy.

Not bad, will keep an eye on this

Heh, it's the music from Portal. Not Still Alive, but the one that plays during the game

How could you not delete Borderlands?

I would have done if Claptrap showed up like that. :P

Great show can't wait untill the next episode.

This is terrible...

More British Humour less American Slapstick

Interesting to see the amount of diversity in response...

Was ok.
The Cooking Mama ones were kind of funny...the rest was mediocre. I smiled once I think. I'll probably still watch though, see if it gets better.

Also, was the shaky camera on purpose?

Thanks man, now i can stop destroying my brain trying to remember XD

That was pretty funny and not too bad, yet has potential and there is always room for improvement to be better.

Well, at least, it is 10000000X BETTER THAN GAME DOGS!

This is extremely funny and really well made. I hope that it gets made into a series.

Not quite great, but not quite bad, either. This could either be a diamond in the rough, or it'll be the next Video Game Theater for Escapist. Worth keeping an eye on it while the jury is out.

Hey! Game Dogs wasn't that- well... okay. Maybe it was.

honestly, I thought Lara would make a comment about tits to not get deleted

While this had its funny moments, I feel that (I'm gonna sound like an ass for saying this) everything that was done here was only done better in the Game Damage pilot (and no, not just because Yahtzee was in it). I know that Game Damage is quite unrelated, but I'm just using it as an example to compare this with. Even though Game Damage (in its pilot episode) wasn't a show entirely dedicated to skits, it did feature some skits, and I felt that they were executed slightly better than what I've seen here; same style of humour, but just funnier.

Don't get me wrong, I like what I've seen here, but perhaps it's necessary to examine other game-themed/related skits and figure out what exactly made them great.

All that aside, this pilot isn't bad - it isn't even sub-par - so perhaps it just needs to be given some time to find its feet.

more

huh?

A few chuckles.

Fan Damn Tastic!!!

Cristian Capatana:
What's with all the anime crap? Totally out of place.

Well done, you completely missed the point of that joke.

Not feeling the humour. I guess I'll give it a try for the first few episodes.

jack583:
i have no idea what i just saw.
but i want to see more!

This pretty much sums me up to. I laughed, but at what I'm just not sure.
