As cool as this would be, It's not going to happen. If it does, I'll post nudes.

By focusing on a new flavor of the month game every episode. DoA, halo, CoD4, rockband etc....$20 says GTA will be in the next episode.
And for the out of place addition of 'hip' elements to the show(sudden fascination with raps, introduction of the "ethnic" character)

On top of that, it's about gamers. Popular games are bound to show up. It was like that in the early days with Zero Hour, Counter Strike and World of Warcraft as well. Although Zero Hour had been in there since the beginning, CS:S and WoW came in later, together with the "new characters".

I get a lot of positive responses, which I didn't expect. Maybe it's because I live in Montana and everyone is braindead when it comes to games and computers so when I tell them I'm in a "Gamer Army" they think I'm a fucking genius.

And my friends will always say shit like "Yep...he's...good at games." People go fucking hysterical. I don't know what the hell it is. They think it is the neatest thing ever. Especially older folks, haha.

You're the kind of person who sticks his nose in the air when that band they have liked for so long finally gets a record deal and "sells out" aren't you?

Considering the show was made for the CNC community before anyone ever thought it would be a series, obviously the first couple episodes were about CNC.

And then what happens? Oh shit here comes FPS_doug. Better not pander to that damn mainstream FPS community, cause no one has ever heard of Counter-Strike before. Oh no! Not Dave! A hip ethnic character!

Oh great now they are making songs! World of Warcraft!? I will never watch PP again, pandering to that damn WoW crowd and riding its success to get more viewers! SHAMELESS! And now there is a female character!? Way to bring in even more viewers! And what the hell is this? It has a STORY now!?

Oh god no! Dave is playing yet ANOTHER game? STREET FIGHTER!? NOOOOOOOOO!

PP has been changing, evolving, and adding new types of material and games in every fucking episode since "about episode 3" when you started watching but now you start bitching about it?

lol chill the fuck out yo. Don't get all butthurt if I don't enjoy the show as much as I used to. And stop taking everything I said out of context.

A lot of people feel the same way I do. I know 3 rl friends and several old time community members who even stopped watching the episodes altogether for the same reasons. The show has changed...and some of us who fell in love with the old PP don't necessarily have the same dedication to this new direction.

Sorry it just blew my mind that someone would say something so stupid.

And yeah, I didn't take anything you said out of context so I don't know what you are going on about there.

I agree that the show has changed. But it has been changing since episode 1. Maybe "evolved" or "progressed" might be better words to describe what happened in the "history of Pure Pwnage". Of course they needed to 'change' the show's setup and everything in order to keep the show running and the fans happy; you can't build 16 episodes around test footage of a pro talking about how he pwns noobs in Zero Hour. (Which was, essentially, how the show started.) It stopped being about that in episode 2, when the concept of girlies was announced (not to mention Dave, the "ethnic" character). Episode 3 derailed further, with (wtf? FPS? Thaznotzerohour!) Doug. Episode 4: woah, teh_masterer? Episode 6: WoW. So the introduction of new characters and games is nothing new.

But you are essentially right. The show did get more fancy, now having premieres and longer episodes and more new games and stuff like that. It's mostly a dream come true for two guys, making a huge successful show from what started out as some test footage. I think it's good that the show now has a budget to lean on. It gives much more interesting stuff and far more possibilities in terms of story, locations, games etcetera.
