Another great episode, another great return to form and its great to see Wes doing what Wes does best!!

That being said, I don't really think Kathleen would be more aerodynamic than Graham. Wrong shape. Would be hilarious to see how each fared in a wind tunnel though!

Edit - And before I get called on it, Kathleen is the perfect lady shape, I'm just fairly certain lady shape contains parts that inhibit aerodynamics.

I definitely liked this one. Good timing, and lots of funny. I will, however, say that Kathleen's cleavage was very distracting, especially on the wide shots where the overlay didn't cover it up so much.

Not that that's a BAD thing, necessarily. I loves me some cleavage as much as the next person.

I'm getting ENN flashbacks already.. Oh, The Escapist comments and instant forum rule change! :D

I thoroughly enjoyed this episode. Like, immensely. That may be because Wes Borg is a genius and makes IT SOUND SO FUCKING TRUE OMG WE'RE ALL DOOMED. :O

Ahem.. Uh.. I mean.. Yes.

Oh man, so good. Wes should be in every video.

In fact, you guys need to do a vid with Andy, Brad and Wes. The internet may explode with awesome.

Also loved the dig about the sound quality at the beginning.

Andy, Brad, Wes, Cam and Nate, AKA "Da Krew". It would be awesome.

If they brought back Wes as the conspiracy theorist then we may get more beloved characters :D

I'm... actually going to disagree. I didn't like this week's episode as much as last weeks. Graham's "Is it Oni 2? No it isn't." comment at the beginning had me laughing.

But, to be honest? I thought Wes's rant went on a bit too long. The premise was wonderfully absurd, and funny, but... I would have rather seen more of Graham, Kathleen, Jer, and Paul, especially this early in Checkpoint's run, where we need to establish the characters for the new PA audience, than a guest character like Wes. He was a good 30% of the episode! I think if the rant itself had been shorter, or if more of it had been in interview format with back-and-forth between Jer and Wes, it would have been funnier. But as it stands... it made it seem like Checkpoint was just kind of ancillary, and the episode was mostly about Wes.

Or maybe I just want Jer to have more screentime. >.>

The rest of the episode was en pointe, though.

Oh, and cue the 1000s of comments on the PA forums about how Jer isn't looking at the camera. :x

I totally feel you on wanting more Jer, AD, but I imagine they're trying to find the right story to not only have him take a big role, but also to bring back Ryan Quickbender and various others.

...Though seriously, I'm hoping Matt will be making a return soon, because he just totally fucking sells Ryan Quickbender so god damn well.

We are, at times, at the mercy of the news cycle. "What is Bungie doing?" was by far the most interesting jumping-off-point for a story this week and if we were going to get into conspiracy theories, bringing back Rex Carnegie just made sense. I want myself "established" in the eyes of PA's viewers as much as the next guy (probably more, actually), but I think this made for a better episode ;). Paul and I have no intention of fading into the background.

It worked. I agree it wasn't quite up with last week's, but that's mostly because, c'mon, "Is this a PS3?" was gold. :)

Love the shoutout to the sound issue.

I also think Wes's thing went on a bit too long, but I think it's because you got to the joke too soon, and then it was just more of "Ok, slingshot, I get it..." Then again, I don't know if there was a better way to structure that.

Even given that I still really enjoyed this episode. I do enjoy seeing Wes as a crazy conspiracy theorist.

I also like the "broadcasting this week in THX for a slightly reduced hiss"

Good ep, but I do agree the slingshot thing went on a liiiiitle too long. Only a little though. Otherwise I enjoyed it.

Fair point. Not much happening this week. And, of course, I'm still picking at nits. Still loved the episode. :B Guess I've just got to have more patience and let a few weeks roll buy so that everyone has a chance to get pieces in.

IMPOSSIBLE. As president of the ALWAYS MORE JER club, I clearly hold the monopoly on that extremely specific thing that we are talking about.

Aaand I have no idea what I'm talking about anymore.

I'm trying to work out why I like Checkpoint more than ENN. They seem very similar and yet something seems very appealing about Checkpoint. I guess the subtleties learnt from ENN are being very well applied.

Always nice to see Wes. Funny as ever, not really a lot more to say really.

*Reads previous comments and Ponders* Next DB I'm not going to pay for an Andy/Dale Duet again. I'm going to pay for Andy/Dale/Wes to sing. Maybe find a 4th and get them to form a barbershop quartet of pure awesome...

I guess I would also vote for more Jer. However, I would also vote for more Graham, more Kathleen, more Matt, more Paul... eh, you get the idea.

Guys I love you.
Really funny episode, and I loved the Oni just and the quick stab at the people who were exaggerating the sound problems to epic proportions.
I feel as though that Wes' rant wasn't to bad, I mean it's the feature story, and the point was that Wes was a crazy person, and the stereotype is that the crazy conspirists have longly drawn plans of things that most likely will never happen, like Glenn Beck.
And Kathleen seemed to move the neckline up a bit, so nothing really was to distracting in that department for me, at least...
Though I will say this I want to guess that the PA forumers will be complaining about htis time, is that Jer's eyes are slightly, slightly looking away from the camera,(but some of us here generally know why that is the case) and if they do, a bittersweet win for me.
I'm Ignorant, God...
Sorry I can't do that, it violates my three laws of robotics.

Perhaps it's the conspiracy theorist in me, but I'd like to know who the people to the right in the background as Rex Carnegie is advancing on the camera after the initial white noise cut (is that what you call it?) are supposed to be. Fellow theorists on the run? A pair of bros who are pissing behind the dumpster? Twinks trolling for sex? They were so distracting to me that I wasn't paying attention to half of the rest of the rant.

Good framing stories around it, and I like how it seems like you were able to move the "during credits" banter to the middle of the show.

YAY! Wes returns as conspiracy nut Rex!

I was laughing throughout. Although I've already forgotten the lead-in stories, I know the titles had me laughing.

[Edit:] Just noticed that neither this or the first Checkpoint is appearing in my RSS feeder. Having difficulties with doing that?

As someone who recently broke free of Blizzard's Odin-sleep, I appreciated that segment a lot.

This episode looked cleaner and the features flowed more smoothly than last week's. It was really great!

I Love the new series, and subsequent rebirth of ENN. Its like a phoenix that has been brutally murdered comming back for revenge with a new identity!

However I was sad not to see a Wii vitality sensor segment. I thought you would actualy do it, but no big.
