Doomsday Arcade: Episode 12

Awesome episode. I have always wondered about the chicken/egg conundrum even after applying evolution cause the question arose "If a chicken -1 lays an egg and a chicken comes out is it the chicken egg or the chicken -1 egg?" Finally someone with an answer.

hydroblitz:
i want that musket.

Yeah, that musket definitely needs to be used more often.

Fantastic writing, absolutely brilliant. You guys straddle the fourth wall very well (which just sounds dirty), the continual game references are paced very nicely, and you even mix them up from obvious to esoteric (I nearly fell out of my chair when he said yoghurt instead of cow), and the characters are great in personality and consistency. Add in the hilariously over-the-top acting and some stellar special effects, and you have one of the most professional web original series I've ever seen.

One question, though. I can understand why Nefarious left the two alive, but why did he let Shanks keep his sweet tie? It makes no sense!

The Steven Seagal approach can solve all of lives problems.

Also, I want that tie......

Top work, lads! You make this Aussie proud!

Holy Fuck!
That chicken-egg theory is EXACTLY the same as the one I posted here!
UPSIDE-DOWN AUSSIE KINDRED!

Loving how the Guards look like the Blues Brothers.

"I see this as a passable friendship." Perfect

This show has to have some of the best action i've seen in a web series.
Nice reference to the Fresh Prince guys.
I like how they like to keep going with a joke(the puns) and keep using it until its funny all over again.
Lund and Shanks are better as mindless idiots.

Great reference to Shaquielle O'Neil's awful game Shaq-Fu...and the water and glass effects also rocked...

Great, as usual.

And remember, when in doubt, use the Steven Segal method.

Anachronism:
"Main Screen Turn On". Love it.

Great episode, as always. This is, in my opinion, the Escapist's most consistently entertaining video series, with the possible exception of There Will Be Brawl.

Although, I have to ask, how is Nefarious not dead? Didn't Shanks shoot him?

Shanks only shot him ONCE. That's never enough to kill a real super villain.

"What are you going to do?"
"Something I should have done two weeks ago if only I had time to film and edit it."

YEAH! You guys show that 4th Wall who is boss!

You guys rule. Nothing else to say.

Been watching since the first episode - thought it was funny but a little silly. It's really grown on me since around episode 5 though; and this one was a masterpiece.

Keep up the fuckin' good work.

Great job! Although you kept referencing something I don't know what it is, what. Still awesome.

I love how it shows the beginnings of a punful friendship.

(P.S. Get a new intro, srsly ddes.)

I like their intro. They should at least keep the catchy theme song. Anyways, great prequel to the series, and I can't wait to find out what happens next!

Hoorah! FLCL syle! Guitar blade.

Epic work guys. I always enjoy the cheap puns and the consistently-broken fourth wall.
Although I'm not sure if it's so much "broken" as "smashed, picked up the pieces, and recrafted in the form of plot devices and witty one-liners". XD
Keep the episodes coming. Now I'm just waiting for the Tower of Doom fight vs Mario.

Stunnning (That's an extra n for effort)

N for Effort?

It's that biblical phrase "a tie for a tie"

Great episode, Daggerfall reference was great, the effects were really good loved the slow motion glass break and the explosions with all the drinks.

My personal favourite bit was how well you did the fight scenes with the quick camera switches and the first person view when Shanks was punching nefarious in the face. Keep up the good work

I love this series. But Im glad you brought it away from this ten-year-ago two parter to explain what the hell is going on. Episode 11 was boring, im glad to say I liked this one. cant wait for 13!

I love this series. You guys are funny as hell, and this episode was grand. Cleared up a few things, too.

Why. Aren't. More. People. Watching. This?!?

for what its worth i liked it

This show is made of pure awesome, also that room, is the best room in the entire world ever. The one with the hail to the thief artwork painted on the wall.

good sode, but you guys's sound is a bit off, get one of those boom sticks(or what ever they're called) or some of those little coller clip on mics, so you can hear their voices. Other then that nice sodes! :)

I WANT THE 8-Bit TIE!!!

It just struck me that Mike and Shanks never got rid of the portal gun, what happened to that?

"Well we look like the sort of people that like to party hard...so we must have partied so hard that we forgot...everything."

That one cracked me up real good.

Keep up the good work guys. This is the most underrated web series ever made.

I'm gonna assume that Nefarious on the floor Shanks standing, pointing guns at each other was an intentional shout out to Pulp Fiction Reservoir Dogs?

Another great episode, and as Root pointed out, its gonna be sad when its done.

EDIT: Almost made a shameful mistake.

We totally need a shirt that says "Well, you fight like a yoghurt!"

BardSeed:
w00t! Monkey island reference!

yay I'm not the only one who recognized that

although i only just played the game 1 year ago for the first time, so I guess that doesn't count as much

but all those responses...

i think the best line is in this episode
Nefarious: "you fight like a dairy farmer!"
Shanks: "how appropriate. You fight like a yoghurt!"
(lund face palms himself)

LOL "you fight like a yoghurt"

Actually made me rofl. Great series guys, love it!

General Alexei:
Multiple smashing glass.

That made me laugh.

Is it bad that I noticed they have Pacific Coast (a.k.a. the album cover of Hail to the Thief) on their wall during what is supposed to be the mid-90s, yet it wasn't painted until the 21st century? On the less nerdy side, this means they have good taste.

mmm nefarious. lol.
