Magna Carta 2

An evil king takes over, and only a lazy kid can save the day.

Watch Video

A Korean RPG? Nice change of pace.

That's right. This is a KRPG.

Man you guys sure do a lot of JRPGs. Maybe it's becuase their design/ Stories/ pretense/ pomp is so easy to take the piss out of?

(edit; Indeed KRPG would be more fitting!)

How can you guys make LRR, Unskippable and ENN all in one week, and still make up all of these awesome jokes?
It just doesn't make sense!

"Well, we'd be going a lot faster if we didn't go into dramatic slow motion every two seconds"
See?
AWESOME!

"I poke you! Well, I poke you!"
AWESOME!

It's unnatural, it is.

How did we go from civil war to idealic island?

Once again they have Johnny Young Bosch as the voice of a main character. I also heard Steve jay Blum and I think Crispin freeman as well

I would so tap the Princess now because she's 18yrs

I love the resonances of fate reference

Man, the punishment for slacking on that island is harsh, (the punishment is DEATH!!!!) great episode as always,

PS it was awesome the count's name was Alex, as that's my name

That was indeed a pointy city.

KOREAN? I wondered why it was so easy to understand.
Oh wait, no it wasn't!

lmao, the end was hilarious

"Its a Trap!"

Nice one, but can you please hold back on the J/KRPG's for a bit? I know it is easy Riffability, but can't you please do something else for a while? It has felt like a JRPG every other week for a while now. How about some bad FPS's cutscenes? Or how about the Zelda CD-i games (you know you have to do those eventially).

It's a trap!

So, am I the only one who thinks that Graham and Paul spliced together two completely unrelated games and claimed they were Magna Carta 2?

see they are actually all time travelers from the year 20xx, escaping from a horrible war between a robot and an evil mastermind. Comedy is just their way of dealing with the situation.

Speaking as a British person, I'm also rather puzzled as to why this is called Magna Carta. I know RPG titles don't typically make a lot of sense, but this is a particularly weird choice.

Another good ep, Graham and Paul. And you're right:
Imaginary calendars should not have existing names of months!
Paul said it best when it instead should be "a long time ago in a galaxy far, far away".

If they let him drown the game would have been so much shorter.
The first Unskippable I've waited up for and it was worth it!

I just want to point out that you said J/KRPG. And that is exactly what this cutscene felt like. A Joke RPG.

Good job guys. I laughed this time around compared to last week.

KAME HAME HOTPOCKET!

"Ill poke you!"
"No Ill poke you!"

Loved this episode.

It's not a Magna Carta if some guy can just take it away without fear of revolt of the nobles, clergy and peasants. Just like they are not rights if someone can take them away(like George Bush jr. and the Patriot Act)

Trusy ol' Ackbar system

I must say I really like the girl at the end. She actually knows that the protagonist is a clueless git, and she treats him accordingly.

Your takedowns of JRPGs or KRPGs or whatever are the best. :D

Yay more Asian RPGs! Too bad none of the Wild Arms games have a Voice acting opening, love to see it on here.

you do realize that Zelda is a JRPG right?

Not really. It is japanese, but it is only an RPG under the barest of criteria. If zelda is an RPG than almost every action game is an RPG (God of war, prince of persia, ninja Giden, devil may cry, ext), and at that point the distinction becomes pointless.

As for the actual video: I am so confused. Unless their is a bunch of stuff that you cut out of that one I would be so lost if I played that game. Who are those people and what do they have to do with anything.

And I am kind of surprised you didn't make the comment that despite being based in a fictional land with fictional people the game is named after a very real document that was the preciser of constitutional government, how does that make sense. Damn those Japanese and just using whatever English words that they think sound good.

"Is he alive?"
"Do we care?"

Epic good sirs.

Considering the Zelda CD-I games were made by Phillips (a Dutch company) and were pretty much platformers, no I didn't realise that, as that realisation would have been incorrect.

"Shienzu..."
"Gesundheit."

Wow, that are some strange names. Well, except for Alex of course. But hey, sometimes the best writers get fed up with making up names.

all praise aside, am i the only one who noticed that the characters all suffered from a severe case of shrunken head?? bloody ridiculous is what it is

During the "KAME HAME HOT POCKET!" I was eating a hot pocket!

Creepy.

Judo died, and the game continued with a more interesting protagonist...

BALTHIER!! Because Balthier is superior to ALL protagonists! Yay!

I was more amused by their perfectly normal case of shrunken attire.

so they hired all the voice actors from the bleach english dubs? zaraki, ichigo, yoruichi?

I am desperately hoping for a major plot twist where the main character was crippled from the fall and the game is about filing a lawsuit and getting that girl arrested. It will probably end with the main character sitting in his wheelchair, watching her get executed with his one good eye and then killing himself to stop his pointless existence.
Now THAT'S a game that I would play.
