JSW:
The black guy survived longer than anyone in Night of the Living Dead, and that was the original zombie movie.

(And the only good one, other than the comedies.)

the first dawn of the dead was good and so was day of the dead.
also dead set was awesome and is free to watch on 4od :)

GrinningManiac:
We WILL have a party

and it will be off the hizzim

...What the hell is a hizzim, anyhow?

"Off the Hizook", as in snoop dogg's rendition of "Off the Hook".

Desert bus wont last
why? Nov 22 is the MTG Pro tournament finals. thus you cant exactly get a good turn out on day 3

You guys are a wee bit late, but nonetheless, I liked this.

"Someone's still alive." "Oh boy! Let's kill them."

That made my chuckle.

"Merry Christmas" "Really? That's the one-liner you've been saving all this time?"

That bit made me laugh out loud.

i was hopeing you guys would do a left 4 dead one! XD cant beleive it took you guys so long! :P

"Oh fine sergeant buzzkill, it's just a three-way now"

Good job you guys!

I figured it fit well after the [PROTOTYPE] comment.

Best one in a while I personally loved the "Its just an crying emo girl."

great episode, but i was a bit surprised to find out that you guys thought it was a terrible game, ive heard people say it got old fast and such, but terrible? thats a first.

Melancholy_Ocelot:
Desert Bus is the one game I'd let Jack Thomsen crush under his boot heel.

I just want to hear Mr.Thompson's argument for getting rid of it. I'm sure he can connect it with some shooting or other.

I've been waiting forever for you guys to do Left 4 Dead. Awesome. I always did think that the hunters looked like Alex too... though none of my friends ever played prototype so I couldn't tell anyone. Yey for me not being the only one to notice!

Awesome as usual, guys.

I don't think they said it was terrible, the girl said "run like hell" and they called that a terrible game

Jim Grim:
"Merry christmas." Just what?

It doesn't even look close to christmas in the cutscene either...

Heh, love the traffic report. Nearly spit out my food.

I dunno. Was it really unskippable? I'm sure you could have found batteries from somewhere and swapped them into the controller.

Besides, how are you going to play the game afterwards, if the controller's broken?

That is what Im talking about right there. Great job

Rock 'n' Soul:
I'm just going to go ahead and come to terms with the fact that I'm probably one of few that laughed at the "West Side Story" reference.

Dont worry, I did too

Whats the double bus thing everyone keeps talking about?

FINALLY

Someone agrees that the Hunter looks exactly like Alex Mercer

Whenever I said that Prototype was a game about a particularly angry hunter from L4D with a grudge against helicopters, I just got flamed by fanboys =(

Now I have backup. Thanks, Unskippable

*cries*
yeaaaah, after 1 year of L4D, we pretty much know what that means :P

The flat delivery of some lines is utterly perfect. Like "Let's leave her to her poetry." For example, the best line by far in the Final Fantasy opening was "But no, you chose the flightless bird because, and I quote, 'It looked fancy.'"

They've turned dry delivery into an art form.

I loved the Kool-aid man joke AND the comparison to Alex Mercer.

My question is, when will you riff a Castlevania game? I've noted two references to the franchise thus far in your other videos. I will keep hoping!

I always love references to previous episodes, so the "Run Like Hell" part had me laughing pretty hard. :)

What a fast-paced opening to a game, in which we learn not much. Simple enough premise. Also, never heard of Desert Bus, or Child's Play! I am intrigued and think this is an awesome cause.

And off to Desertbus.org I go!

...iiiin about 5 minutes. I have to make a detour at Restaurant City.

I gotta say, these are seriously less funny when the movie being mocked was actually done well. First Borderlands, now Left 4 Dead... it'd be like if MST3K decided to do a show on Citizen Kane. Sure the rabid fans of the show will insist it was the "best yet", but anyone with taste will wonder if they're running out of ideas and/or movies.

Well good and bad is subjective, but I'd say this is not a new thing. I personally thought the opining cinematic of Onimusha 3 was awesome. and that was a long time ago. I don't think the actual quality of the scene in question makes it's mockery less funny.

And you may or may not know that the MS3TK crew always wanted to do other movies but couldn't get the rights to them. Now a days they do the rifftracks thing, which goes around the copyright laws by not actually featuring the movie (it's audio you have to play over the movie).

Okay, so this was great and all, but...

aren't you supposed to bash BAD cutscenes? I've always thought that this one was pretty epic.

samsonguy920:
They might very well have done L4D today since 2 comes out tomorrow

Funny story, that was totally, and completely, unplanned.
I didn't even realize until you said it. Heck, I thought L4D2 was coming out Q1 next year.

Wow, go us for being timely!

It may still, as of this posting, PC version of L4D2 is 1 hour and 10 minutes overdue for release. But no surprise since Valve pulled the same last minute fixing with the early release demo. Go figure. At least now we have something to feed our L4D cravings in the meantime. Thank you Graham! And Paul, I hope you were able to forgive Graham for not hitting the skip button. :D

They should've planted some plants around, that'd would've stopped those zombies. ...esp if they had some of those Cob Launchers, those things can devastate a shit load of zombies, slow reload time though.

...anyway, I don't think this was one of the better episodes, but still good for a chuckle or two.
BTW, what is this DesertBus thing?

Obviously I disagree. It's not the goodness or badness of the scene that makes it funny.
I understand that if you like the scene (as I do, with Borderlands, and this one) then you might think that we're "making fun of it" and get upset or irritated, but we're not.
Making some good-natured ribs, maybe, but are we saying its bad? No.

And the MST3K guys recently did Casablanca on Rifftrax. Casablanca is a fantastic film, but it still made a hilarious Rifftrax.

As an aside, there's no way we could be running out of games, any time soon.

This is actually one of the best intro's I've ever seen. Isn't it the job of Unskippable to "[make] fun of bad game cinematics so you don't have to"? These really aren't all that fun when the intro being voiced is actually good.

Although Im not old enough,I can appreciate the joke because I've heard about WSS from my parents.

I have been known to tussle with the boys from Unskippable a lot, but I have to agree with Graham 100% here.

When someone riffs an older bad movie, it can take its toll on the viewer. I mean I remember watching Hamlet from MST3K, and dont get me wrong it had some hilarious lines; but just having to sit through two hours of it sucked, no matter who was riffing it.

When you Riff a good movie, video game, or whatever It can be alot easier to get into simply because your not watching some horrible piece of cinema. Like for example when Unskippable did "Dead Rising". The Cut scene itself is interesting, I remember playing the game when it first came out and loving the story and the cut scenes to it, so when the riffed it It was just taking a great cut scene and making it better.

Also, apparently alot of people on here think that riffing is an easy gig. I ask all of you to go ahead and try a riff on your own, and then come back here with the results. Me and my friend recently riffed "Hard Boiled" by John Woo (BTW Can you Unskippable guys do "Stranglehold" please?), and it was tough to riff! The perfect analogy for it, is people who say Hockey is a talentless sport, but have never ice skated in their entire life.

You never know how hard it is to riff, until you've been out on the ice.
