Well done, I enjoyed it.
I think that this episode is the gem of your series.

GrahamS:
Halo 3: ODST

Graham and Paul meet a crack team of space pirates military specialists that seem to fall for everything.

Watch Video

Just makes me wonder where the minds of the MST3k cast are all today...

Well obvious ones aside.

What he said during the drop was pretty much everything that was going through my mind when I first played that. Funny that.
But seriously. I thought that was funny, considerably shorter than some previous cutscenes these guys have taken on (given that on average a Halo cutscene lasts about five minutes) but nonetheless it was entertaining. I wonder if they'll ever do a cutscene from Wet.

EDIT: However while this was entertaining, it still isn't the best you've ever done. Right now I'm more of a fan of the Lost Odyssey one and the Onimusha 3 one.

Last line makes the video.

"the capten has turnd on the oh shit we are going to die" funny as hell

Those are two of my favorites, too. Graham and Paul really go to town on the implausible fast-paced sword action scenes.

The "we're going to die sign" gag could easily have fallen flat, but the timing and delivery were dead on. Kudos.

Oh, and for those who missed Desert Bus, it's not only a great effort of philanthropy, it's fun on a stick for the viewer. I'm hoping that there will be another one next year, and you should too.

Okay, am I the only one that is bugged by the weird amount of inflection that Nathan Fillion put on "...find your chairs and get SHHHET for a combat drop." ? I thought that would be prime for a Sean Connery joke right there.

You could use it as a centerpiece...or to hit people in the head with it XD

Ok, this is giving me some serious Quake 2 flashbacks.

"Hey, it's a palindrome!" Obviously YOU watched Square One as a child. XD

How could you not end it with "That was the 5th time I died"?!! It was so obvious!

Still, a funny episode. That animation is crap.

So would this be the 6th time you died?

no that Rookie does live and you have to play as him but during the game you play flashbacks of your other ODSTs

Spoilers!

Oh, and the "Oh shit, we're going to die" button was awesome. Kudos to this Unskippable!

very funny!

Nathan Fillion playing a hardassed veteran is a stretch even on a good day. Maybe it's because the first time I saw him was in Saving Private Ryan.

Can't believe no one has brought this Serenity reference into the discussion:

Mal: This is the captain. We have a little problem with our entry sequence, so we may experience some slight turbulence and then - explode.

canadamus_prime:

Edit: oops, I mean 5th time.

I can't believe they didn't use that line. I was expecting it from the start :(

wow, really good episode, although most are good, this one seemed particularly hilarious

I was about to put that. They should of made that joke. Would of been awesome. When i played it, that is exactly what i thought. I loved the game personally. good to have three of my firefly crew together again in something. Also i found it quite funny that they were placed in the exact same roles as in firefly sorta.

Ha. Awesome.

Hehe!

Yaknow, I wish I could play this game just for the Firefly guys. I mean, Nathan makes me giggle foolishly. I could forgive every problem in the game if only he'd reprise his role as Malcolm Reynolds. :3

Personally, I hope they got some talking time in there, and were like, "lets hound Whedone to get the crew back together again." :) One would hope, anyway.

technically that is spoiler because Bungie them selves told you that was going to happen before the game was released

"What are they going to do? Form a subcommittee to look into covenant related issues?" *laughs*

I always get a kick out the UN jokes. It's quite amusing when a lot of video games view the future UN to be some supranational entity that has the muscle to back up their decisions. Space Command? They have a hodgepodge of treaties that they call their Space Covenant! Are they really going to have a UN Space Command, or is that the futuristic replacement of the Security Council?

"Who was that?"
"Miz Naval Intelligence."
["She hangs out with Major Damage and Heavy Civilian Casualties."]

"What the hell kind of armor was she wearing?"
"I wasn't looking at her gear..."
["...I was looking at her breasts."
"They were covered with her gear."
"I KNOW."]

I have to agree that this is one of the better Unskippables we've seen in a while, the timing was excellent and the above bits had me absolutely in stitches. Especially the blunt, smug way Graham said "breasts."

Best unskippable ever

Hapetiitti:
Wow. I gotta say, that was one of the best ones you guys have made.

I completely agree. And that game's intro lended itself perfectly for it.

- You know the music, time to dance.
- Pass that Dutch!

Best unskippable EVER

ForgottenPr0digy:
"the captain has turned on the oh shit we're going to die button"

that part made me LOL

I love the resident evil 5 joke and UN joke as well

why does ODSTs have weird names?? Romeo,Dutch and O'Brian

Graham and Paul do it again! Now everytime i'm dropping in the pod i'm gonna start laughing.

How do you end up sleeping in a drop pod befor launch?

I'm surprised...knowing how that cutscene ended I was totally expecting
"...and that was the 8th time I died"

They kinda did in the best way they could without copyright infringment.

The next badge from this had better be called "Private Buttercup," or so help me I will pout all day long =P

I love the people talking about the bad animation. These guys are in armor designed to survive a drop from orbit, you are not going to have the best range of motion. I think that is more realistic than the ragdoll movements of other armored soldiers.

And as for the faces, that why they have helmets. It makes animating faces easier. :P

great episode guys

Lol, this is awesome xD
