Andrew Eisen's 'Monster Hunter' Wishlist

February 12, 2015 - GamePolitics Staff

Our pal Andrew Eisen is a bit of a dreamer sometimes and a huge mark for the Monster Hunter series from Capcom, so we thought it would be fun to share his "official" Monster Hunter Wishlist. These are the five things he demands (politely asks with a pretty please and some sugar on top) be in the next Monster Hunter game. Check out the video to your left.

Andrew Eisen Video: The *Truth* About Mario Kart 8 Sales?

January 23, 2015 - GamePolitics Staff

Andrew Eisen's latest video illustrates two things: people do not pay attention to the fine print (if they even bother to get to the end of a story where that fine print might be found) and Andrew is in dire need of hair care products - most notably a comb.

In his video Andrew talks about Nintendo's sales number for Mario Kart 8 and how some people accused Nintendo of lying about them in its fiscal year reporting.

You can check out Andrew's latest video to your left. In case you didn't make it to the end of this story, the title is the joke...

Why Andrew Eisen Doesn't Do Reaction Videos

December 15, 2014 - GamePolitics Staff

Our very own Andrew Eisen shows us all why he doesn't do "reaction videos" - you know those videos where people get excited, scared or overwhelmed by something they have watched like a video game, a scary movie, etc.

We will warn you that there is at least one graphic scene in the video that made us squirm a little when we saw it (you'll know it when you see it).

Celebrating 150 Games That Won't Be On The Wii U

September 22, 2014 - GamePolitics Staff

At this point, our friend Andrew Eisen must be looking forward to a game not being on the Wii U so he can add it to his list. What I mean is that once he went past 50 he probably became resigned to the fact that publishers just don't seem to think very highly of Nintendo's capable little home console.

So we thought we should share this video Andrew made celebrating (?) the 150th game that will not be released on the Wii U. Join in on the fun by hitting up his YouTube channel and leaving a comment!

ConsterDon't 'beauty rags' already get plenty of criticism?02/27/2015 - 9:02am
ZippyDSMleeEh still rather subjective… the haters would be better off going after teen and beauty rags and magazines than fiction, fiction follows reality and going after fiction tends to turn into a bullying fest’s… plus its fiction its unrealistic to start with….02/27/2015 - 1:10am
MechaTama31That's a pretty difficult anatomy to break.02/26/2015 - 11:09pm
MechaTama31"the way her animations repeatedly break her anatomy" <-- I'm sorry, but we are talking here about the woman who can roll up into a little ball and live to tell the tale, yes? ;)02/26/2015 - 11:09pm
Andrew EisenAs far as examples that could be culled from female game characters though, that one's pretty mild.02/26/2015 - 9:11pm
Andrew EisenNot as much the heels or the suit in and of themselves but certainly the way her animations repeatedly break her anatomy to show off her lady bits.02/26/2015 - 9:10pm
E. Zachary KnightWell, Samus's heels are certainly impracticable, but I wouldn't really call her Zero suit objectified. I don't really feel that the new Lara Croft is objectified either, but that is my subjective opinion.02/26/2015 - 9:08pm
Andrew EisenTomb Raider: No but we haven't seen much of anything yet. Samus: Yes.02/26/2015 - 9:07pm
ZippyDSMleeWould you call the new tomb raider objectified? WOuld Samus Aran from the new Smash bros be objectified?02/26/2015 - 9:02pm
WonderkarpI'm hoping they put the rest of the comic book ghostbusters in there. Ortiz and Rookie(From GB the game)02/26/2015 - 8:38pm
Wonderkarpghostbusters board game is doing great. getting close too a 3rd extra playable Character. Ron Alexander.02/26/2015 - 8:37pm
Andrew EisenSmurfette is not subjective. If there's more than one female character, it's not Smurfette. Anyway, as with everything on the list, Smurfette is, in and of itself, not necessarily a bad thing.02/26/2015 - 8:32pm
Andrew EisenI think there's 5 women (out of 15, I think) but other than one being a bit more "hippy" than the others, they pretty much all have the same body type. Especially when compaired to the huge variety of male body types.02/26/2015 - 8:31pm
Wonderkarpso I dont see Smurfette as a bad thing. Unless like all your female characters are Smurfette. remember the Smurfs also had Sassette02/26/2015 - 8:29pm
E. Zachary KnightOne good example of the larger issues is one Anita used in the presentation, Blizzard's Overwatch game. There are a dozen men in the game with a dozen body types. But there are only 4 women with 2 body types, but 3 of them have the same one.02/26/2015 - 8:28pm
Wonderkarpthe smurfette thing is subjective to how many female characters you have. Take Sonic for example. You have Amy, who is obvious smurfette, but there's several other female characters now without that. Including the original animated seriescomics with Sally02/26/2015 - 8:28pm
E. Zachary KnightAE. Very true. I think that is where I was going, but it didn't come out right. Jack Harkness is sexy but not objectified. Whereas, a women would have to be objectified in order to be "sexy" in most games.02/26/2015 - 8:26pm
E. Zachary KnightAnd as Andrew pointed out, there is a big difference between a sexualized man, and an idealized man. But for some reason, there is no distinction between women in games. For the most part.02/26/2015 - 8:25pm
Andrew EisenI think one of the issues we run into repeatedly with these conversations is the confusion over "sexy" and "sexually objectified."02/26/2015 - 8:24pm
E. Zachary KnightYet, for some reason, in orde rto have a sexualized women, she must be wearing lingerie or a bikini. Can't women be sexual and still dress for the job at hand?02/26/2015 - 8:24pm
