less news room please

I thought the comments last time were largely in favour of the old format, but yet we're got newsroom again...is there at least going to be some alternating?

Actually.... I like both "ENN news beta" and "ENN news Complete, packaged". Both have unique styles in them... but I'd hate to see one of them being dropped out, I never get why you guys(yes... and girls) would turn such popular vid-project in to a biweekly show, I was hoping that you guys would do the 2 variations side by side; ENN briainstorm, ENN complete, ENN brainstorm, then ENN complete again, EVERY WEEK!(please?) I don't mind if it is the same thing/subject, just one is complete, the other one is at planting phase.... but I'd like to see ENN every week (and I know there is MANY others who would like that too)... sounds like a crunch time request... don't HAVE TO, just personal wish, and I DO KNOW doing 2 shows per week is hard... result/answer from you, I'd take a "no" ok too... if that's the case.

Jbird:
Yes!! More ENN: Phailhaüs Edition!

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

I know that is why I started watching ENN again. Rather It is why I started watching ENNN.

You heard them. They listened to some of the feedback.

dead space 2 ad campaign- suck
dead space 2 demo on 360- freakin awesome

So essentially it's: Dead Space 2, you're Mom doesn't like it, not that she'll actually play it, so essentially this message is rather redundant, as the only people who would buy a game just to spite their Mother isn't old enough to buy this game, my gosh we're stupid, every word we say right now is wasted money.

I wasn't completely sold on the new format last week, but I really enjoyed this episode. And they certainly did get one thing right... Justin Bieber does blow.

It'd be nice to see the original format again, but that Venn at the beginning of the episode makes it worth it. :)

We can only hope.

Doing a spot on Reading Rainbow Reffernce

I remember the episode where Levar took the kids backstage on Star Trek: TNG (I think it included a "Supper Bunny" book). It was a geeks dream come true. But you don't have to take my word for it ...

Horray for the return of the Phailroom, I mean Newsroom.

I second this arguement!

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.

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

Sadly Dragon Age was. Hell just watch the trailers with explosions everywhere and Heavy Metal in the background >_< And this is even worse than that! I do wonder if there's a circle of hell for evil marketers, RUN by the EA marketers.

Kaz Hirai on The Price is Right was just hilarious! Nice joke.

Technically right now they do 2 weekly shows (LRR + Unskippable), plus biweekly ENN. Add on top of that all the bonus content they put up on their website, organizing DB4H months ahead of time, and jobs, family, friends, etc. I think the LRR crew has their hands full. I'd rather see one well done biweekly ENN video than two weekly rushed ENN's. If they are rushing one project, all their projects are going to suffer, plus their personal lives. That's how people get burnt out and quit what they are doing.

Long Live The LRR!

Rated T for teen.

Snip.

Desperately Dying of Dysentery

That was actually really clever. It felt simple and refreshing - like a bottle of Evian.

Soviet Heavy:
Seriously? People are preordering for a thousand bucks?

The worst part about that is if enough people preorder it then the company will probably raise the price over $1000.

Also: "Desperately dying of Dyssentary" lol

While I agree with the thing about good games being somewhat scarce on the Wii, when they are actually good games they ARE GREAT GAMES. Donkey Kong, No More Heroes, Super Mario Bros, Mad World, to name a few.

Also the TRULY TERRIBLE games are only ever really found on the 360 and maybe the PS3.

Sonic Free Riders anyone? Or maybe Mindjack?

Kimarous:
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?

Actually, this format takes more time to film and edit than 'classic' ENN - we only edit together the good stuff - we film a LOT more and then re-do, edit, and cut, cut, cut. It only appears totally 'off the cuff'.

We're not sacrificing ENN for other shows - we're trying to find a format that Escapist viewers want to see.

This is fun but I hope that this isn't all the show is going to be ever again, it would be nice if more episodes like this were mixed in with episodes with the old format.

Baby Tea:
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!

I agree one hundred percent. I had the same reaction.

Best ENN Newsroom episode so far because I'm sure there will be more awesome episodes for the next ENN be it news report or newsroom. I would like to see weekly episodes but I can wait till the 16th for another episode especially if its gonna be as good or greater than this episode.

This episode was hilarious, keep up the great work, ENN!

Did they forget the pic of the day again?

I like this, but I think that it'd be cooler as a "every other time" type of format. It's not really Phailhaus because it's all game related and you lose some of the idiotic things people do, not to mention there's no "pic of the day, day of the day, word of the day," etc.

These are fun and enjoyable, but I also enjoyed the old ENN. Now, if we could get the actual Phaiulhaus here like once a month or so, and then also ENN, that would be AWESOME, but I don't want LRR to die of exhaustion, lol. I particularly enjoyed the Mario fan. My friend has a plate with Mario on it.

This newsroom format is still lame. Also, I spotted jump cuts. Shame on you. Go back to the previous format.

Pure brilliance, loving the newsroom.

I so agree with their commentary on the dead space 2 ads. They're such shit :/

Which is why they are rated S :D

Eh, I liked the ad campaign. It's better than just showing some gameplay with MELO-DRAMATIC NARRATION! like most games do.

Aptspire:
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?

Considering this week's ENN Rejected was a good four minutes long...

I don't think I've laughed so much at a video in some time. That was great. I loved the Dead Space 2 ad counter campaign.
Although I guess that ad campaign is a step up from the Dante's Inferno ad campaign, I hadn't thought of that.

And now that I watched it, I have to wait another two weeks for the next one. Saddest thing about ENN :(

I always liked the first half of the ENN shows (and the after-credits sequence, of course). The editorial bits were usually pretty obnoxious. The newsroom is basically the first half of ENN made into an entire show, which I think is kind of great.

Also, big props for your thoughts on the Dead Space advertising campaign. Said exactly what I was thinking.

I've really enjoyed these two episodes although I hope it doesn't become the standard format - I think it works better as an occasional special.

Please bring back more real ENN. While this sort of format can be interesting, I really think it only maintains that as an occasional break from the regular show. I don't think I enjoy it much as I do the regular newscast format.

Besides, I also really miss the adjective of the week... or fortnight, I guess would be more correct now.

Er... I just had a thought. Are you guys starting to get burned out? I mean, first you switch ENN over to biweekly... and now you're giving us what are basically ENN brainstorming sessions instead of actual ENN. I dunno... it's just a fleeting thought, but I hope it's not the case.

I also hope that I don't sound like I'm coming from a sense of entitlement. I just miss the old format is all.

Anyways, that's my 2c.
