Last week, we announced a change in format for The Escapist. Rather than packaging a few specific features together each week, we’ll be considering all of our content offerings as part of each week’s issue. That means news, reviews, videos, regular columns and webcomics will all join the feature articles as important parts of each weekly issue. To help kick off this transition, we’re offering a quick look at the types of content we produce each week.
Videos on The Escapist run a wide range, from critical commentary on games and movies, to the latest trailers and news, to entertaining comedy and music series. Click the series banner to see our most popular installment so far this year.
