Screen Tear: Episode 7 - Mass Effect 3 and Skyrim

Strong feelings about Tali, girl-on-girl, and the Mass Effect 3 ending PLUS little kids acting out scenes from Skyrim in their kitchen.

Screen Tear is GameSpot's video game clip show, starring the one and only Carlos Rodela: the man that watches way more silly YouTube videos than is healthy. Previously a Friday show, Screen Tear now hits the Tubes every Wednesday. Each week he brings you the newest, funniest, weirdest, and most entertaining video game clips from the past week and squeezes them all into an easy to digest six-minute show.

In this week's episode it seemed appropriate to celebrate two of everyone's favorite topics lately; Mass Effect 3 and (still!) The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim.

If you want to check out the clips from this episode in their entirety, here are the links.

No worries Carlos, I enjoyed the show. I just build/fix computers for the last 12+ years so I notice those things without looking almost. Keep up the good work.

@CarlosRodela No prob linking it on FB but let me check 1st the FB rules for profanity and boobs. A friend of mine got her account reported and banned twice and she wasn't displaying half of what you can see here. FB is full of stupids though it's ok for family tracking and ex-gf stalking lol. Anyway checking the FB rules part is for real, will let you know asap.

Too bad you can't fail a QTE in Asura's Wrath. Would love to see what would happen if you don't push UP on the R Thumbstick in the bonus item. :)

Ok why do they have to make mass effect an animated orgy. Thats not what the game is "all" about. other than that show rocks, great way to incorperate humor into games!

That grandpa would need a bigger screen, let's start a donation campaign, he deserves it. Bout ME3 I loved the animated videos. The lesbians' complain was ackward though, they looked so different from adult industry lesbians lol. The big boobed girl was odd too, in a different way. Overall great episode, and thx god those kids didn't have to perform fus-ro-dah.

I love this show! Thanks for the ME3 ending reaction videos! I know I'm not the only person who thinks the ending(s) was perfect if not only to illicit this kind of rage and creative responses! Well, played Bioware, well played. Ib4 Hamburger Helper Trololoface

@hickabickabooya in the house! grandpa gamer = rad fo sho. and homer might make an 'actual' appearance shortly. you wait and see. @duke_51 apparently it won't matter if some of it gets spoiled because they're adding something different / ending wise. @hector530 good point. had similar issues with BSG and twin peaks actually

I liked the hitler thing the most, lolz, also if you havn't beat the game, where have you been? I beat it on hardcore in 20 hours (it will take less if you don't want the best endings), you need to use combos other wise the game is way to hard to beat... at least on this difficulty.

Good call on wanting everybody to amp down on the ME3 anger. Also, grampa gamer was awesome (I hope to be just like that when/if I'm that old). Also thought Homer's intro to the bonus item was classic (but him poppin' in more often would be cool)

Man everyone on the internet won't stop about ME3's ending... some of us haven't played it yet! SHUT UP, SHUT UP SHUT UP.

I think Tali is the hottest chick in the Mass Effect series. Something about her sleek build and reverse jointed legs... Grandpa rockin' Skyrim is pure awesome. :)

Lol, lovein me those adult swim references. Good show again. I agree with host, do the gangsta thing for us ;p

" would you ask francis ford coppola to change the ending to godfather?" no because it didnt suck or have huge gaping plot holes the deathstar could fit in with room to spare.

@CarlosRodela yeah the ME3 ending thing is like you said in a previous show "high nerd five". It was nice to see it covered in your show. I tried to joke in the comment of the "big" MF3 ending post on GS and they all hate me now... Looks like the post traumatic shock of ME3 ending is stressed out in the comments a lot. Which feels funny :) Why shouldn't we change the ending of humans life? They are both bad endings.. Don't you have gangsta dealer around a corner in your town, he sell some other cool stuff as well. Maybe a gangsta ending of MS3... man would people pay him big money for such a thing
