Used for Evil.. Rob Banks, Destroy Governments, Create my own country, Reduce biliionaires homes to rubble and generally destroy any stability in world economics.. But I'd leave the poor countries alone cause they got it hard enough already. Arriba La Rasa!!

World domination is just plain silly, I would take that baby and go forth with a mercenary squad or UN and give those countries in need of help, the hand they need in getting shit together!


I would call my Mech, The Tatter Masher!!!

I guess that parking wouldn't be a problem with one as I'd just leave it in the "standing" zone along the curb.

Where was that house graphic from, a game?


Using Titans to end wars, there have been stories about that in the past, there was a movie Robot Jox.  In that movie international disputes were handled by matches between mechs representing countries, rather than by war.  Not quite the same as the ideas proposed by users, but it immediately entered my mind.

Lol, those who wanted to use Titans for good sound like terrorists to me. I mean, holding world leaders hostage... :P Not that I'm against that, but you know.

You missed the most obvious one – saving kittens stuck up trees!!

1. Hanging out and playing with elephants
2. Construction work (possible to build really big things on a whim)
3. Hand-to-hand combat pitfights with betting
4. Space exploration or colonization
5. Trying to solve world conflicts with violence

As Cam pointed out on Reality Check, a Titan wouldn't be too practical on the battlefield, so if I had one, I'd use it to assist in rescue operations and explore environments that are hazardous to humans, definitely for something good and beneficial to mankind.

The Gist keeps getting better and better with every episode! I like the random nature of the show, I can't predict what the next episode is going to be about, but I'm sure that it will be excellent :)

If i was the president of United States, would use a Titan to invade China, and show what's the most powerful.

Realistically I'd just sell my titan to Lockheed & Martin or some other such company for a s***-ton of $ and move to Fiji. But if we're talking whimsy I'd live out some fantasy about being a big-a** Robocop vigilante in some third world country... I'm thinking somewhere in the tropics... like Fiji.


And any chance of an ep. on best/most liked Game Devs.? I was wondering who people would pick. Figure Rockstar, Naughty Dog, Irrational Games... :( , Nintendo? Bioware, Double Fine, Bethesda Maybe, etc.

WORLD DOMINATION!!!!

who needs to be nice when you have a 100+ foot tall semi intelligent robot that you can pilot who's also outfitted with weapons up the ass......not literally of course.....

mwahahahaha, I spit at your puny tanks, I generally laugh at your ineffectual military.....I can shoot your laughable spyplanes out of the sky in one shot same for any planes.....NOW,  I demand......1 billion dollars *puts pinky in mouth*

NO, seriously being a nice guy never got me anywhere lol

My Titan and I would go on tour doing a Young Frankstein-style "Puttin on the Ritz" song and dance routine.

Whatever you do, don't watch Attack of the Titans with your titan buddy. Who knows what ideas it may get...

". . .use your Titan to pick up chicks."  I liked it.


I wish I had a Titan to scare off and terrorize all those bad neighbors I had a few years ago--vigilante justice ala Charles Bronson style.


"Some people say this show is random. . ."


That's not a bad thing. That shouldn't have a negative association attached to it.  People have a desire for consistency, but people need SURPRISE and a change or things become mundane.  The Point, Reality Check can be random~~you never know what's in store.


"Jess' Gist~~Stay tuned 'cause you'll never know what's in store."


Good show.

Enough with the Titanfall articles already. Keep it on IGN, where more than 5% of them care about Brink meets Halo, frag-fest, online-only BS.

im sorry jess but i wouldn't want such an easy to break "titan" i want a gundam. made from gundanium alloy which can only be created in zero G, powerd by a nuke generator. specifically i would want the all powerful gundam winged 0 from gundam wing with an advanced AI battle system that expands the mind of the user allowing them to not just become smarter but even see what's to come. along with a beam saber, 2 shoulder mounted gatling guns, a super thick gundanium shield and a twin blaster rifle powerful enough to destroy space colonies in one shot. titan, ha  you may as well be in a suit made of paper against a gundam.

Jess you should come to Sweden to drive my Toyota GT-86 ;) It's a fantastic car and you should really buy one :) They are not that expensive either!

Either way thanks for a great show. I hope it will last for years!!!

@jaimenm  Saving kittens stuck up trees is a good one.  Rescuing people from burning buildings.

Search and rescue for people after a disaster, e.g. an earthquake, hurricane, tornado, tsunami.

Plus scaring away mean, aggressive dogs that aren't on a leash because the owner is so thoughtless in addition to vigilante-ism.

@crazeon  My favourite car was a Subaru (Subaru Brat), before it got unfortunately destroyed by some drug dealers who were on a high speed get away from the police.

@kingkadett  a lot of people around the world watch Top Gear - its been getting awful the last few years, but still people watch it

@kingkadett  there is top gear USA and Australia as well. i watch the USA version its quite good.

@WhiteTulip1 I agree, it has lost it's greatness but it still is a good show, in my opinion. But the rise in production costs for it means that it probably will meet it's end sooner or later. 

kingkadett

Cool, but then again, they have what, 700 million viewers worldwide... so i probably shouldn't be surprised.

I know they exist, but there is only one real Top Gear. The USA one is ok, but most of the challenges are just copies of what Hamster, Jezza and Captain Slow have done already... Watching Tanner Foust drive tough, thats awesome.

@WhiteTulip1 @SaintsRowLA @AMERICANRIFLE  

It is?  Some places in America can be that way too, unfortunately.  There White who hate blacks, black who hate whites, Mexicans who hate whites and blacks.  I don't give much energy or dignity to it.  


But not everyone is like that.  There are a lot great people who are white, black, Mexican/Latino, Asian, ect.

@AMERICANRIFLE  You can always go to Australia. Nothing is stopping you.  You would appear a bit crazy.
