First of all I want to say: Thank you! For all of your incredible messages of support and encouragement. We know you’ve been wondering if EP and ROTR were coming back. We are! On Monday!
We’ve had to trim our television production and focus on just making one new half hour a day instead of two for the time being. Reviews will continue to be a big part of EP Daily so you’ll be able to watch the best of what we produce in one new show every day.
This new season of EP represents a new beginning for our company and our properties. We’re excited to get going! We’re looking forward to enjoying all of the awesome videogames, movies, TV shows, comics, collectibles, events and more that 2015 has in store for us with you. Thank you for watching!

So Reviews on the Run has been folded into EP Daily? Darn. Never watched EP as I don’t like to learn about a product before I get to experience it, but will watch the review segments.
On second thought, just sink.
That’s harsh. If you don’t have anything good to say don’t say anything at all.
If my original comment wasn’t deleted for using a PG-13 swear word then you’d see that I was actually showing sympathy toward EP for having to slim down the show.
I blame the continuous crap-churning industry for putting the middle man (EP) in a choke hold. I actually really enjoyed both EP shows. My hate is mostly aimed at the big 4 (Activision, Take-Two, EA, & Ubisoft) who have all the power & money in the world to change this industry for the better, but instead they decide to suck out it’s blood and release identical annual cookie-cutter games, get voted “Worst Company In America”, and warp the entire industry into a coin-operated pay-to-play microtransaction DLC fest. My hate for that will never die.
No more ROTR? Would it ever be possible to turn that into a web only segment?
Glad to see that it’s back if only in bite-sized form! I have a week of episodes to catch up on now, so let’s get busy…
