Back to Reviews

The Escapist (Copyright © 2005-2012 Themis Media) is an online magazine for all things gaming with some content on general entertainment. The site contains a wealth of information including gaming news articles, game reviews, movie reviews, web comics, and more.

The Escapist Magazine played the original host to the popular web series Extra Credits before a payment dispute lost the series to Penny Arcade. With the departure of Extra Credits, the most popular feature of the site is easily the web series Zero Punctuation. Zero Punctuation is a game review show done by the fast talking Aussie, Ben "Yahtzee" Croshaw. Yahtzee's irreverent and often scathing reviews offer both entertainment and insight into recently released titles. For those with more of a taste for cinema, The Escapist offers the web series Escape to the Movies narrated by Bob "Moviebob" Chipman. Moviebob casts a critical eye on films as they come out, spreading his humor generously throughout his videos. The magazine also features a forum for discussion on a variety of topics and posts a weekly podcast covering current events in entertainment.
