The Hunger Games in Minecraft, Hitomi's boobs, Francis reacts to the Mass Effect 3 ending, plus a bonus Zelda moment.
Screen Tear is GameSpot's video game clip show, starring the magnificently chin-bearded Carlos Rodela, the man who watches way more silly YouTube videos than is healthy. Screen Tear hits the Tubes every Wednesday, and each week brings you the newest, funniest, weirdest, and most entertaining video game clips from the past week.
In this week's episode we celebrate the cultural significance of The Hunger Games, watch Internet-sensation Francis react to the Mass Effect 3 ending, ponder Hitomi's boobs, and enjoy a Zelda sex scene.

Hmm I don't know why isn't the show on the first page of GS as it used to be..... or was I missing something? I feel bad that the show doesn't get as much attention as it should. If you would write Mass Effect 3 Alternative ending as the tittle the page would be boomed with comments and views...... Nice episode I hope it wasn't the last one in the history though
@_Judas_ He's right in a lot of ways, I agree, but he doesn't factor in the overpowering factor of consumerism. If you want to boycott a product, like he suggests, and force the producer to change what it makes, you also have to force the consumer to change what they buy instead. People won't just hold onto their money and wait. That money will burn a hole in their pockets. If they can't find an alternative for spending, they will just end up spending it on the same thing over and over again. Consumers must consume. What's the big alternative to Mass Effect in the same genre?
I understand making the show a bit shorter to catch viewers, but I kinda missed the greater variety of clips the extra time allowed. Always great to have somebody point out an awkward moment, cause that just makes it more so. All in All, a great show, though having Homer do some over reactions to games might spice it up. Also, I found the Zelda sex strangely erotic (crickets chipping).
@harkonnen84 @jhonel83 we are also trying out the show shorter for the youtubers who like 2-3min vids. I would like it around 6-10 but we're experimenting. a lot of other shows don't really try new sh$t tho yknow? so we're taking suggestions, mixin it up, and seeing what sticks. I appreciate the honest feedback gamespot users have given us!
what face am I making in that show thumbnail? geesh. and i'm kinda liking all the attention we've (unintentionally) put on 'francis' (boogie2988) and his 'characters'. like i've said, it may be positioned as characters, but it's also just a part of him. you can tell - he prob grew out of that version of himself. *my thoughts
