I was thinking of buying Dead Rising, I've got a felling I will. The begining part was awesome, and I'm glad to see that Moviebob is back! He really hated Twilight, I mean really, really hated it!

Absolutely awesome. Russ and Jeff have a brilliant comedy duo dynamic, Moviebob was spot-on with Twilight.

I'm not sold on Dead Rising Wii, to be honest. Part of what made the original 360 game so awesome was the veritable horde of zombies surrounding you, and from what we've seen here there aren't nearly that many on screen at any one moment. A shame, really - if they'd been able to keep the graphics (and amount of enemies) on the level of the 360 game PLUS adding the Wii functionality, that'd have had a ton of potential.

Again the Jeff beating up Russ formula works to a tee only this time... Zombies and Chainsaws, fuckin eh! And that Moviebob review was awesome! Mostly because it articulated my thoughts about Twilight considerably better than I could.

That skit wasn't that funny, but watching Russ getting injured may have been for the good times!

Loved every little bit of it... great job this week.

Absolutely nothing bad to say.

Very nice. I loved the Moviebob section. I couldn't stop laughing about the picture with the count from Sesame Street.

Man...I met a girl who saw Twilight twelve times in a row the day it came out. Literally. I was as shocked as you are. I've never seen the film but he summed the girl up fairly well.

He's finally reviewing Prince of Persia.

I always find it weird how for some reason people say "Dead Rising could only have been done this gen" and now its being done on the Wii with no noticable cutbacks.

In other News, Yahtzee needs to write Joss a letter.

And when the fuck is he gonna review LittleBigPlanet?

MovieBob=AwesomeBob.

dead rising, cool
movie bob, awesome!!!

bring betsy back for the next episode!!

The opening was priceless. "It's not hitting, it's messy!"

meh not a big fan of these things, I watch it to get some Dead Rising info but first I have to sit threw a couple minutes of a not funny zombie skit then I don't get much info (I'm guessing its just Dead rising for the Wii but I don't even know) and then get a ZP clip and a movie review. These things seem like an excuse to do a video which end up being 2 minutes of game info spliced with any other video you can cram in there to take up time. My 2 cent

And the running gag continues at the start of each Escapist show. Also I do not think dead rising on the wii looks to be great because although you have the wiimote it just seems pasted on because when you do get swarmed doing a 180 to blast the zombies behind ya does not seem possible.

Also Moviebob's review of Twilight was really interesting. I did not expect him to go that far with a movie on this site. Also I was shocked when Twilight was just compared to movies like Grease or Rebel without a cause because that is so true that when you thought they were being new you have so many movies that have done that before.

Thanks, MovieBob, that was cathartic. Really.
Nothing else matters.

I liked chasing Russ around with a chainsaw :)

Awesome. Especially the intro.

Hey, it's nice to see that MovieBob is finally getting some love on these forums. Great show from beginning to end.

I hate the WII with a passion. Wasting developers time. Its just a cash cow. Developers do not develops games on this consol because they love game. They do it because they love cash.

/spit

Dead rising is a great game btw. But this portage wasnt necessary at all.

This was awesome enough that I would watch it again. And I will.

Great to have moviebob back. I missed his reviews the last few weeks and really hope he'll be a regular contributor from now on.

I got roped into seeing twilight and I can say there were only two things I found barely tolerable. The scenes of the vampire family and they dynamics between them was kind of interesting in that it actually felt distinct from the town and the rest of the characters, at least until the baseball scene which was possible the most moronic thing ever filmed. The other was Edi Gathegi playing Laurent, easily the strongest character in the movie and I wish he had more than three scenes. The rest of the time I probably spent more time checking my watch than looking at the screen.

What really got me was with the vampire family and Laurent we could see that there were actually vampires out there who were doing vampire stuff, but they stayed focused on the hideous excuse for a romance story. That's like going to the Stanley cup finals and spending the whole time interviewing the popcorn vendor. Everything Bob said was right on the money. I like a good bad movie every now and then (excuse the oxymoron) but this is just unforgivable.

Yah take the urinary infection, it'll hurt less.

Who wouldn't?

I'd be more inclined to like Moviebob if he ever made contact with us as a user, and didn't try to remain aloof. Nobody can really do that without coming off as a prick.

I hate to be this guy again, so I apologize now, but he did thank us... on his youtube account, in a video there. Obviously, that does little for anyone who only sees his stuff here, but he did make a nice little "Thanks to all my fans" thing at then end of one of his vids. Plus, some self promotion in the beginning.

Y'know, you're entirely correct about that. Hi there :)

Just remember, when people innevitably get sick of me hanging around, you had to ask ;)

That was actually funny :P

I loved it! Also, Twilight can sparkle in hell for all I care. Good job, MovieBob ;)

People haven't got sick of me after being on here for 11 months, and I'm as close to a one note guy as you can get without failing the turing test.

MovieBob, try and get them to get The Game Overthinker too. And what's the deal? Are they gonna make you a weekly feature?

Yay Moviebob! I'm a great fan, and this episode just again shows me why.

Keep up the good work!

Wow, that was bad. Enticed by some more info on Dead Rising, I thought I'd give this video a gander. To my credit I stomached the dreadful opening for a minute and a half until I skipped forward to the 'exclusive interview'. Now, I may not be a reporter on games or otherwise, but a couple minutes of footage of a guy sitting on a couch killing some zombies does not strike me as anything that could possibly be construed as an interview. The Zero Punctuation teaser seemed a bit pointless as well, what with the video coming out in its entirety the very next day. I couldn't even press on for the movie review, as while the reviewer seems to make relevant points from other reviews of his that I've seen it just isn't possible for me to shake the suspicion that the presentation is trying to ape Yahtzee's image-dependent delivery but without any of the stylish flair. (I realize I'm totally asking for it if it happens that this fellow's been doing his thing since before Benjamin Yahtzee Godzilla Croshaw, but I'm willing to take that gamble.) In summation, I quite like MovieBob, love The Escapist, but still feel dissapointed and like I was led on by the promise of an 'interview' concerning a game I may want. Based on my opinions I will most likely be avoiding 'The Escapist Show' in the future.

my friend took her daughter to see twilight, she has no clue what was going on, because in the cinema the entire audience (entirely composed of 12 year olds) screamed whenever the main character was on screen.

Dead Rising Wii... Couldn't they have at least tried to mask the fact that they're making it with the RE4 engine? I mean, it just looks like a mod. He even moves like Leon, for crying out loud. They haven't even bothered to change the aiming cursor! It's just silly.

- Twilight and all the books/movies are nothing but Mary Sue Emo Soft-Core Porn. *headdesk* The books are poorly written at best so why this made it into movie form makes no sense. Its all about the cha-ching in the end.

- Dead Rising was a fun game, although rather flawed in many aspects. Now they are trying to cash in on the Wii crowd? Pathetic. I bet if you put Hanna Montana in place of all the zombies it'd sell ten times better.
