The Escapist need us more than we need them. Without us they dont exist. So no, they dont owe us anything, but it does well to keep your customers happy, even if those customers only pay with there time.

Um if you haven't noticed the Escapist is probably generating income from the ads and online store. You argument is firmly rooted in the Ass-like (Ass as in the animal, not the body part) mentality to commerce. The Escapist doesn't need to focus on entertaining YOU when its pretty clear that while a few disgruntled readers leave, more people will come to replace them. This is the internet, theres always somebody stumbling on to a website for the first time.

Also democracy isn't the right to complain, its the right to the illusion of contributing to society.

EDIT:

NezumiiroKitsune:

WTF? If the don't exist without us than that would mean they owe us for paying attention, you've contradicted your first two sentences in the opening of the third.

Okay then you win, heres a deflated baloon and 2 off your next armpit hair cut. I dont care, I know democracy doesnt work, but it entitles us the right to complain, even if no one listens. I wish I could make Red Dragon buffer, dammit I hate Youku.

Ad companies wont pay the escapist piddley squat if theres no one to click the links, and Yahtzee makes up a sizeable proportion of there ranking figures. Not really making a point there, but he does, I think the escapist rankings went up by 3,000,000 visitors when they enlisted Yahtzee. If I can get the figures again I'll post them. Since, he's brought many more into the fold. I now personally enjoy The Escpaist for multiple things, and many of my other favourite webtoons are on here. So, I've forgotten where I was going with this, oh right yes thats the ticket, I just going to enlighten you futher, hurrah, by saying I dont think anyone has left because of this. Us leaving was just an theoretical scenario, totally hypthetical. I think it was in response to erm... something about them not owing us something? Probably. Anyway have a fantastic evening, I'm going to go cry into a salty sponge of syringes, I really hate Youku. However I finally have got Silence of the Lambs to buffer :D Yay, off.

The man speaks the truth. Dizzy fucking ROCKS!

I love this show.

And as a consolation prize for such over-dramaticsm I bestow upon you sudden aviation via an elevating foot to the gluteus maximus.
Further more on what interpretation of democracy are you basing this off?
French, Ancient Greek, American, British or Australian?

Well of course no ones left, if someone was that offended to leave they would've at least dumped a post calling us all crazy madmen for paying even the slightest attention to this site. Also the correct term whether your British, American or Canadian is Hypothetical.

I was quite upset when I saw this, but I figured I'd live.

Even so, it was a long week.

Re-run! Weak!

Leave the poor beggar alone. Yahzee needs a week off just like the rest of us. Give him chance to regain his bile and then he'll be back.

this is a repeat. A REPEAT!! its dated too.

I just came here to check if other people had noticed this was a repeat and obviously most peopl did. no big deal , theres a new one out now =D
But i did have one other thing to say

Eyclonus:

... yadeh yadeh yadeh blah blah blah. the word you were looking for is "asinine". you not knowing that word seems to show exactly how "Ass-like" you are, along with the obvious point of you being a massive prick.

FlameMasterAxel:
10 bucks that if they had just skipped, you would all be bitching just the same.

You owe me 10 bucks.

What the hell is this? An encore presentation of an episode that is stored on the web is like eating a 32 oz steak then waiting 24 hours and watching it hit he toilet then EATING IT AGAIN! Double U Tee Eff! ZP you have your shit together. I like your mash up of words and phrases so next time you decide to DVDA your audience at least ask us if we want a reach around.

I figured it would have been easier to post one of his Youtube vids then to post a rerun.

Eyclonus:

Now that's just poor. Try to remember that the second you result to personal attacks you lose the argument (and yes, the above is a personal attack, as insulting his spelling is also an insult to his intelligence). If you can't enter into a debate without resulting to base insults then you're just plain childish.

But onto the main point: Yahtzee reposting old stuff (and I don't particularly care whether it is him or his editor that made the choice) is out of order. The very least he could have done is given us a half minute video of him saying, in his usual comical way, that he wasn't going to post anything. That'd have stilled the flames and still served the same purpose.

Whilst I appreciate your point that some people just recently stumbling upon the site won't have seen this video, it's a totally null point. That's the whole reason that all of Yahtzee's stuff is archived; so if indeed a new person finds this page, he/she can go look at the old stuff if he/she chooses to.

It's the long-time fans that stick to a contributor when times get rough and keep those viewing figures up. If Yahtzee annoys us, then we'll leave. If we leave then his advertising stops. If his advertising stops he goes out of business. The nature of new viewers is that, unlike loyal fans, their view of Yahtzee's material as a whole is easily influenced. When they've stumbled upon him they'll look back at all his old material (as I myself remember doing when I found this site a few months back). If they see that he repeats stuff, they too will leave. In order to maintain an air of respectability Yahtzee's new viewers would have to exceed the number of leaving viewers. If he provides a poor service then that condition will not be met.

Violince and tits. I have a 360 because it has the best games. awsome reviews

Yea 360 just feels like what a console should be. Great Online support albeit that most f the time its little kids who sound hopped up on crystal meth sugar. The control is simple like back in the day and its not a effing gimmick with motion controls like that piss system wii.

Very nice installment, like always. Although I must point out that blue ray is actually 10 times better then a regular DVD, and Sony’s PS3 blue ray player is the top of the line in the market today. If you have a high definition TV, you can tell there is an immense difference.

Thanks for helping me decide which console to get. :D

I was just flipping through all your reviews and saw this one...and when you got to the quantum mechanics joke, I nearly shit myself. I'm a physics major, and I think I may have been one of the few people to get the joke "and then the waveform collapsed." Heh, I laughed so hard I was crying.

Three of my friends own a 360, two own a Wii and I own a PS3. My 360 mates have all had to send their consoles away for repair within the first year and two of them have sent it away AGAIN recently.

My Wii friends played the console for a week and lied to everyone that it's awsome and eventually admitted it was the only console they could afford and then completly fucking destroyed it with a sledgehammer realising they only had to save up a bit more to buy a REAL console.

Then this leaves my PS3, I've had it since it came out I havn't had one problem! And I afforded it because I WORK. Could be luck or maybe this proves which console is more reliable for the money...

Army of darkness is a bad exsample for a blue ray dvd. Since it was made before DVD's it was only up converted not refilmed.

if you can find a current Blue ray dvd that just came out you would find that they have a bigger contrast ratio and colors. Mostly you are right the biggest differnce is the resolution.

But the true HD differnce is in the 16:9, lol yep you have four times more pixels going left two right and three times more pixels going up and down, (woot)

But I am a cheepo and don't think it is worth paying $60 dollars for movies that wern't filmed with HD cameras.

I thought the Wii was a terrible idea, "They're bringing back the Nintendo Power Glove??" No matter what console exclusive games comes out to any console, I can still get them, legally or otherwise, on a PC. While console players fork over $500-$1000 for each new console, I can play the same PC for years & years & just buy one or two $150 graphics cards & a nice $50 backlit keyboard.

Where do you live that you have to pay $60 for blu-ray movies?

USA just released Blue ray DVDs cost $60

Dude, I live in the US also and I just bough Tropic Thunder on Blue ray and payed $30.

at least we have violence and tits, lmfao!!!! xD

I'll stick with PC & ports & $15 DVDs, though my old Sega Genesis & VHS are good enough too.

Not to suck up or anything but, so freakin true. :)

UnaidedCoder:
Awesome installment, however one little detail: there is a Mario game on Wii, Super Paper Mario.

That's because he already made this video he just re released it

Fantastic reviewish thing!However, has anyone else noticed that this was done before?

Epic... just epic... I have the PS3, so... epic.

Yahtzee: The main difference with DVD and Blu-Ray is the data capacity. DVD gives about 9GB, and Blu-Ray can give up to 50GB

To think this is 3 years old...and Still it makes me Chuckle.
Way to go Yhatzee ^_^

360 for me. I've RROD and i still hold true. It's the controller; none other comes close.

I think PS3 will win eventually with Blu-ray, 3D games, and the playstation name.
Really though, i don't care what you like, whatever works for your sexy fingers.

Love watching the old episodes :)

Yea I'd like to get a Wii, but theres too many of those retarded attachments for it, I can't imagine fucking buying all those things just so I can play the few good games on it better.
