The Newsroom: Dead Dragon Distance

Your mom may hate Dead Space 2, but maybe she'll like this! Or not.

Watch Video

I'm getting a 200 stream not found error :(

Hmm...
So the Newsroom is basically the Phailhaus?
Awesome.
Any chance of getting some pics of the day?

Same, I'm trying to access the stream and the HTML4 Plugin isn't working. :(

Yes!! More ENN: Phailhaüs Edition!

And no one correct me, because that is what this will be to me.

Edit: Phun Phact: Iph you want to use the special version of the letter "u", just hold the Alt key and type 129. Enjoy =)

Edit: I can't get over how much that rhino sounds like Paul.

That was highly amusing. Especially the very last bit

I loved this,. I Lol'ed several times. The looks Graham threw at Jeremy were priceless!

Desperately dying of Dyssentary. XD

Also, we totally do need a ratings system with things like "This game is shit."

After seeing this style of ENN being done twice so far, I can say tat this new style is certainly entertaining. I hope to see more ENN like this, but I won't mind if you guys switch back either.

Your Mom Hates Dead Space 2 - Behind the Scenes

Brilliant! In a way, which makes me want to shake my head with disapproval.

Great episode! But again, I love Phailhaus, so....

(Pssst. "Demented".)

Yeah, i prefer the original news cast thing, switch back at least now and then guys :/

I totally agree.
I REALLY hate that Dead Space 2 ad campaign.
My mom never gave a damn about what I played and she still doesn't.
Now actually try to sell the game to me, EA.

The Newsroom format it interesting, and it pays off. I enjoy it for one.
I'm glad someone spoke about the Dead Space 2 ad campaign. Honestly, it feels cheap and shallow. Sure, it's an advertisement, but it's trying to sell an incredibly graphic and violent game to 13 year olds via shock value. Really? Shock value sells games nowadays? When the original Mortal Kombat came out is sold because of shock value, but that was over a decade ago! Well done ENN, keep it up.

It's great to see all of the ENN writers more involved in the actual show!

I love these, even more than the vanilla ENN! Might have to do with that fact that the end of Phailhaüs left a hole in my life. A very strange shaped hole which can only be fill by the ranting of Canadians.

Hope more ENN: Phailhaüs is on it's way.

it's pretty good, except for one thing:
not enough time for all the stuff that happened this week? then how about making one video per week, mmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmh?

@Ensis235: It came out in '92 or '93, so almost 2 decades ago.

I love this format, but I'm also hankering for the standard format. I don't care when, though, really. Still fantastically funny, and it's really nice to get to see everyone pitch their stories. Again I ask, how similar is ENN: Newroom to the actual pre-episode meeting to discuss what will be in that episode? Did you guys essentially just film one of your meetings, adding things for the audience in places, or is it that you had a pre-meeting meeting to meet meeting meet meet?

Seriously? People are preordering for a thousand bucks?

I think this could be the best ep of this show. I wanna see more stuff like this

This, Im 27, why the hell would my mother care what i play after work. Idiots in marketing need to take a better look at the ACTUAL age of the target audence of there games.

Ceiling fans don't actually reduce temperature, they just blow air around. Heat energy isn't really taken out of the room.

I really lol'd at the price is right reference.

What is sad is that this basically proves that they* are marketing to kids. Which the industry has been trying to say isn't what is going on.

*The makers of Deadspace 2... not every video game company. But they all get linked together by people outside of the industry anyway, so it doesn't matter.

So is this going to be ENN from now on?

This format is... okay, but can we get some actual ENN sometime? It's bad enough that you've gone biweekly, but now you give us these "Newsroom" episodes instead of the original show? To this user, they feel more like an unfinished normal episode... the thought process behind it without any major effort put behind it. It's especially worrying when you follow up this episode with "we only have so much time." Are you saying that the ENN show barely has time for a minimalist backstage discussion now? I admit, stuff like Daily Drop can be entertaining at times, but is ENN really getting sacrificed for shows like that?

Awesome episode.
Hands down Paul wins it, though, with his Kingdom Hearts 3D title: Kingdom Hearts 3D: Dun Dun Dun
I honestly laughed out loud. Just awesome.
Whatever the format, I love this show! Keep it up!

From what I heard somewhere a while ago, they did all of the filming for Daily drop over like a week or two period and have just been rolling them out once a day. They had to rent a very expensive high speed camera to shoot with, and they don't have unlimited access to it to actually film every day. So that wouldn't be consuming a huge amount of time for them ( apart from editting)

but they're busy people. they have to write shoot and edit 2-3 other videos a week, as well as make podcasts, and all the other miscellaneous work associated with LRR, as well as probably have some kind of life outside of just doing LRR.

That said, I think it'd be awesome if ENN went back to weekly, and alternated between formal ENN and newsroom every week.

So, i'm assuming that this is just you guys brainstorming and making these jokes up on the spot, which is fine, i rather like it, but if that the case they cant take that long to make, a afternoon in good company, so maybe go back to weekly and make these in between the "real" ENN, or stay bi-weekly and post these for the subscription people, I'm not a member but they seem like they could use some extra videos, and i would definitely jump subscribe if you did.

I thought it was a all right episode, again assuming that its all made up over the course of a couple of hours, but not nearly as good as the "real" ENN (sorry for using that term, but just "ENN" is a little vague and "regular ENN" sounds like something that will help me poo).

As much as I'm enjoying ENN: Phailhaüs edition, it may alienate fewer fans of the 'original' ENN if you do this format, then the original. Alternate episodes.

Or not. I'll be watching either way.

I lol'd like scream Lol'd at "Kingdom Hearts: ...Dum Dum DUM!"
I love you Paul. Also, my mother is now worried. XD

Thank you, Graham, for encapsulating my disgust for the Dead Space 2 ad campaign, where everyone told me I was being an oversensitive jerk for thinking it was an awful idea.

For the most part, you're right. I would say that Mass Effect was not marketed to kids though.

I liked this episode better than the last one. The zoo on the blackboard was a nice touch.
