"They are brothers in arms." "I would hit you, but that's pretty accurate."

I turned to my friend while we were watching it and said it just before it was said in the video. Still funny.

I'm sorry you guys had to try to make this funny. To all the people who mailed them to do this game, please do not ever suggest another game again. PLEASE.

As unskippable it's hillarious, but as a game itself must be unbearable.
Next week next game.

I have birthday today, and so that's for a wonderful birthday present XD

Nice CSI Miami reference. I expected The Who to start playing.

How many cutscenes are in this game again? I mean, Christ.

Well, there are five Unskippable Metal Gear Solid episodes, each roughly 7 minutes long, so that's 35 minutes.

Now since this is Act 1 of 5, that means that there are roughly 175 minutes (3 hours) worth of cutscenes in Metal Gear Solid 4.

"Who's crapping their pants now?"
"they're brothers in arms"

Sigh, too bad this is the last of MGS4 cutscenes.

Plus you have to hit three buttons to fire your gun!

No you bloody well don't! It's L1 to aim, R1 to fire. Triangle, when pressed, not held, takes you into first person mode, which isn't actually necessary

Yahtzeee lied!!!!

P.S.
You still are hitting three button because holding L1 sends you into aim mode but you have to wiggle the stick, also known as L3 (or was it R3 I haven't played it for a while) to actually aim and then R1 to fire. It's not difficult but feels too much like Resident Evil to me.

Since when was an analogue stick a button? Nobody complains that you have to press three "buttons" to aim down the sights in a COD game, so why bitch about it in MGS4?

SINCE BECAUSE HE SAID SO! good episode too bad this month is over.

GrahamS:
HEY EVERYONE:
You gonna be at PAX? Cause we are!
We have a panel too. The "LoadingReadyRun Panel" on Sunday, at Noon.

Come say hi!

That was just mean. Pax sold out minutes before you made this post.

...T.T...

There's actually 90 minutes in the Act I alone. We didn't show all of them.

Never played the MGS series, but enjoyed the month long antics about it's latest movie.

Actually, what I most enjoyed about this month was poking fun at scenes that weren't just at the start of the game. I know the start is where the better cutscenes usually take place, but I still think you'd be able to do some midpoints, or even endings, to games with a spoiler warning for those that will complain.

Oh give me a break, there were quite a few good lines from this month and quite a bit of poking fun at MGS which is always fun.

Dude, if ONLY there was just 3 hours of cutscenes in MGS4 as the total run of cutscenes (not including many codec conversations) is about the same length as the running time of entire season 4 of Lost, only get this... it is even MORE convoluted and hard to follow.

I recommend MGS3: Subsistence if any MGS game, or if you don't mind the retro graphics, MGS 1, there's also MGS: Twin Snakes which is a remake of MGS1 with better graphics on gamecube. Can't vouch for it's quality though.

You can very neatly avoid both MGS2 and MGS4 (which I believe are the weakest in the series) as those two games plots tie into each other a lot but not so much with MGS1 or MGS3. MGS1 and MGS3 go together well, tell a very different and much more (for Kojima at least) down to earth story.

I can't believe there wasn't a single Resident Evil 4 reference in there. When I saw those guys going crazy, I was certain a few Las Plagas would pop out.

(Was the audio on the opening and closing a lot louder than in the actual thing for anyone else?)

Five episodes... and only act one? Is there a world record for most/longest cutscenes?

"Now I'll make like what I just did to everyone's bowls and... evacuate!"

kinda sad metal gear month is over

kinda glad too

...i'm "gl-sad" about it

Well, that was interesting. But it's probably a good thing to move onto a different game, since this wasn't quite as funny as the others.

I liked a few of the lines, but overall, I eagerly await what you guys do next week.

That was definitely the best out of the five

These 5 videos have effectively prevented me from ever playing that game. Ever. Thank you guys for saving me from that um... game? movie?

gr8 as vid again now about this panel where is it

"Was that a whale or the Cloverfield monster?"

"Give! Back! My furby!"

Haha, ah, fun stuff.

I'm afraid it's less the ammount of scenes but their sheer length! X_X

The Unicorn Theatre. It's all on the PAX schedule.

LOL this was a really good one.

Does everybody realise that there is in fact a reasonable amount of gameplay time in this game? Not to mention lots of replay value, if you want to get all the special items and weapons.

I loved the part about how to avoid your fate Snake had to fulfill his destiny.

Brilliant stuff

I like how the comic relief (The one with the ski mask) was the only one not effected by the mind attack.

Though he probably didn't have much of a mind/brain to being with.

Still, pray to whatever religion you believe in that there will NEVER be another fan-requested Unskippable again. Get some rest G&P, you both need and deserve it.

I could see you were starting to run out of material for this but some of the jokes here were solid gold. Brothers in Arms? Genius.

Don't let it put you off MGS3 at least, it has lot of cutscenes but no where near as long and much more entertaining too, not to mention the gameplay is way more original while MGS4's boss fight are derivative and overall very meh, MGS3 has some of the most epic boss fights in recent gaming history.

ssgt splatter:

Well....... If you skip the all the cutscenes and play the game really well like a speed run you can complete it in 5 hours.

but add casual playing and the cutscenes and then it goes up to about 15 hours.

So yes there are alot of cutscenes but does that make it bad ?

i realise which is why I still play it. (Imense replay value)

I can see where you are going, but having played MGS1 over and over as a kid, I would have played MGS4 just for the fact that it let me revisit Shadow Moses again, and made it feel terribly, terribly nostalgic.

Hmm... having played MGS4, in my opinion it is not a very good reunion, going back to... wait... you have heard of spoiler tags haven't you? I added them in for you. So people are anal about spoilers, not me, but I don't want any trouble.

If I had my way, considering all the other ridiculous and honestly badly thought out things that happened in MGS4 and MGS2 as well, I would prefer it if the overarching story was retconed to end with the end of MGS1 as Snake rides off into the sunset with Meryl (or Otakon)... and Liquid STAYS dead.

MGS3 is so under-rated. I don't know why, maybe people just don't like the idea of such a high tech series being set in the 1960's but I'm telling you, it works so well.

Yes, yes it does. The Fear still pisses me off to this day.

Valdsator:

Your long rant has nothing to so do with the fact that the aiming hardly differs from COD. In COD it's L1 to ironsight R1 to fire, In MGS L1 to aim, R1 to fire, triangle is to ironsight. Pressing one extra button never bugged me throughout the whole game, and if really gets to you that much, then you should probably just play something else.

And with the fact that MGS also has a unique and awesome CQC system, running and gunning wasn't exactly the main point of the game (of course, still possible and easily done). So complaining about one more button to go into ironsights, which really isn't necessary because the normal aiming is just fine, is silly.

Also, what's with all the people complaining about the cutscenes? There's tons of good game inside MGS. It's not like every other second another cutscenes pops up. Lots of games do random cutscenes that don't really matter at all, like the camera pans to something of some importance (when you could easily find it yourself) and then simply brings you back into the game. Last time I checked, MGS doesn't have any of those. If there's a cutscene, it's important, or has something good to show.

That's really just 360 fanboy dogma. The way they cope with another console having an exclusive title that's actually good is to attempt to undermine it by making up rumors and slandering it all over the internet. Most of them have never even played it, as the thought of touching another console is blasphemy. There are alot of cutscenes, yes, but there is alot more gameplay than cutscene. As I said earlier, the ratio is more 3 to 1 gameplay to cutscene. Not to mention... alot of the cutscenes are really cool, what's with everyone's hate for cutscenes anyway? I remember when cutscenes were the absolute coolest thing ever. In fact that's one of the reasons Blizzard was so popular back in the 90s, because they had amazing cutscenes (and of course great games to support them).

Seriously, do you think a game IGN gave a 10.0 to is really a bad game?

I actually think you have that backwards. As much as I admire Graham and Paul (and I do) I don't think these videos did the game justice, nor their comedic ability. There just wasn't the same synergy they normally have when they tackle b-list jrpgs and the like.

This month was boring. Metal Gear solid really ain't unskippable material because it isn't ridiculiusly stupid enough, so they didn't have much to work with.

I haven't played 3 yet. I loved the first two but I was told by a couple of my friends to skip 3, that it wasn't as good. If it really is good, I'll pick it up when I get my PS2 back.
