Be Loud, Be Proud, You're Allowed In These New Escapist Shirts

Escapist Store

Show your gaming chops with some new merchandise added to The Escapist Store.

If all your gaming t-shirts are getting a little worse for wear because of how much you use them, it may be time to expand the collection a bit.

In case you haven't visited the store in awhile, we have some usual Zero Punctuation goodies, but we have also added two new t-shirts to the mix: One featuring the ZP imp wanting to teach you a lesson, and the other heralding the glories of being a PC owner. Both sell for $20.

Of course, to go along with all the t-shirts, we also have a coffee mug and a bumper sticker, and even a hoodie if you live someplace where it is drafty or cold.

So check out the store, and let it be known you are a gamer.

What, just the two? I mean, that's nice and all, but you might want to set up some kind of competition to get really good designs rolling in.

A while ago I'd have been sorely tempted, particularly by the "PC master race" one, which is very me.

Not too long ago, though, in two separate incidents, gamer friends of mine peeked over my shoulder and asked whether The Escapist had gone "a bit weird", or something to that effect. It came in the wake of the controversy, you know the one. I didn't really have a response, other than that I'd been a member since before all that kerfuffle.

I generally like The Escapist. I also like wearing stuff to boost my nerd-cred (because I take ego-boosts where I can get them!). Now, my friends didn't make a thing of it, nothing like that. It's just that if I'm plumping for something like a gaming shirt, I wouldn't want it to have that any baggage attached. I'm not saying this as a condemnation of the website or anything; it's just a shame controversial stuff like that has this effect.

This isn't a rant, and it isn't aimed at anyone. Just musing aloud.

I think I'd rather wear a shirt made of actual spiders.

We are working on those, but early tests indicate a severe decrease in returning customers.

I laughed. :D

Though I wished the "Press X to not die" shirt would come back. I really liked that one and missed out.
