Just watched an entire season in one sitting. I'm not from Canada so I had to torrent it -.-, and to be honest the only reason I did so was to convince myself there is no way that they'll do something better than the (IMO) downfallish second season of the web series.
Boy was I wrong. Although I felt Doug was too extreme (unrealistic) on occasions, and some other minor complains, this was AWESOME. I really hope they do come back for the second season.
In comparison to the web series - I like October more than Tagi (the chemistry between her and Jeremy seems much more real and believeable to me), I don't miss the micro battles, I do miss the masterer.
And to add something to this post so it's not just a random review - I see some people are wondering where this fits in the context of the web series. I think it doesn't. It's a reboot, and all the references to the web series are there just for the fans, and it's really cool to hear a joke or two that you know were there specifically for you, and not for the "regular" people
I wonder, how does PP portrait gamers in "regular" people's eyes?
After Y2K, the end of the world had become a cliché. But who was I to talk, a brooding underdog avenger alone against an empire of evil, out to right a grave injustice? Everything was subjective. There were only personal apocalypses. Nothing is a cliché when it's happening to you.
