Unskippable: Splinter Cell: Conviction

Indeed - creepiest combat tutorial ever.

"My dad's Michael Ironside!" was priceless, right along with all that stuff about his mom.

"Ooh i'm flashing back 20 years ago when I was Max Payne"
i lol'd

LiquidGrape:
Why is it that Fisher looks younger and younger for each game?
Makes absolutely no sense whatsoever.

He looks like he's part of a different canon to Double Agent.

I hope they thought through that 74 hours part

Sam: You think you can take me? Go ahead on...

Probably the funniest episode I've seen these guys put out. The last comment had me in stitches for the first time watching Unskippable. Good work.

Ok speaking as a Maltese citizen, I would just like to say that a waiter would NEVER give you a phone and earpiece just because someone called, they would just shout ''ISMA!!! Inti Sam Fisher?'' and destorying any semblance of subteltly you had. Accurately depicting the brutish and abrasive manner my countrymen act is vital to the games authenticity. Also most are complete xenophobic racists and the waiter would of most likely spat in the earpiece just to spite Sams American ass.
Yes maltese people are that bad.

The malta tourism board is just gonna love me for this XD

Damn I'd actually love to play this game but I refuse to buy any more Ubisoft games as long as they use this fucked up DRM.

Well done, cataclysmically humorous, as always.

wait, what was that in the corner...was that...a "skip" button?

Wait, how are we getting the video if the location is unknown? I am pretty sure you need a return address.

The walls can speak, and they never shut up.

This is probably the best video I've seen in a long while. On a side-note, I couldn't really get into the Splinter Cell games. Hearing Darkseid's voice from a character who's the good guy didn't sit well with me.

hahaha is that seriously how they teach you the killing mechanics? xD awesome, I still need to play this game

"that is unless it's either a) necessary or b) awesome"
^that about sums up video game civilians lol

"my dad's michael ironside" LOL
loved that one too, imagine that voice telling you goodnight haha

Metcarfre:
Loving the Friendly Giant reference. Ah, CBC children's programming. So good.

Glad someone caught that one.
Probably one of our most obscure references.

That poor child, she will be scarred for life :D

Oh sweet, Splinter Cell! Did you guys have fun staeylthing sum gaurdz?

Another funny episode.

I've never actually played the Splinter Cell games... is Michael Ironside's voice typical of the character? Because that voice and that character model really don't fit together. Not at all. Not even slightly.

(IMDB says yes. Wow, that's some weird casting. Or weird modeling.)

"Malta's a country!"
"Shut up!"

"I wish I had a tactical lens flare."

Great episode guys and yes, Sam does sound like my grandpa.

Hurr Durr Derp:
Another Unskippable that's not really unskippable. :P

your ruining the fun

on topic: fantastic episode and the ending bit with his daughter is really creepy

hahaha, the final joke was amazing! they did the tutorial in a new and interesting way but when it comes down to it it is a little insulting. keep up the good work!

I only beat the game yesterday. I didn't find this that satisfying.

Hurr Durr Derp:
Another Unskippable that's not really unskippable. :P

I was wondering if anyone else saw that too. XD

Wow. That comes only second to Fallout 3, in which they teach you combat mechanics WHILE you're a child.

And walls. Seriously. Used to be all you let them do was hold up the roof, and maybe a painting or two. Then you hand them a little extra responsibility, maybe ask them to display a tutorial or two, and they get all full of themselves.

"I'm flashing back to 20 years ago, when I was Max Payne." All it needed was sorrowful violin music and it would've been DEAD ON.

The Opening scene seemed boring with out their commentary.

MeXR:
"Ooh i'm flashing back 20 years ago when I was Max Payne"
i lol'd

That was definitely laugh-worthy.

Maybe it's just me and knowing the fact that the kid dies, but the echo-effect in that dark room with her seemed kind of creepy. And the writing on the walls did not help.

"save his weeney son" - nice stab at Heavy Rain there ;)

"Wow we really thought we had to torture you more to get this information!"

lolz good job again!

Both modeling and mixing of the audio (unless it is made worse due to recording for the clip)

When he is facing at an obscure angle away from the camera at distance or changing distance/angles from the camera their is no attempt to alter the audio, it seems to be playing his audio track like the camera is zoomed in square on his face. The character looking mid thirties does not help.

Ha, awesome. I do prefer the darkness when it's played by Mike Patton as well.

"Boy, walls are getting really uppity in this game," had me laughing. I'm kinda surprised about how they got to this so quickly.

Also, let me say that I do kinda like Sam Fisher but that whole part wear he's explaining how the darkness is great to his daughter, kinda creepy.

LiquidGrape:

He has that Benjamin Button disease.

I don't know, I think that whole combat tutorial and the "writing on the wall" thing is pretty damn immersive, despite it being just a little weird. :P

Also, love the Mike Patton joke. :D :D

Great episode: the concept of Michael Ironside tucking a child into bed is easily the most frightening thing I could possibly imagine. She would be sleeping there peacefully and BAM! he Scans her brains and her head explodes. And he would LAUGH about it. Michael Ironside is the scariest human being on the planet... next to Willem Dafoe.

The wall text reminded a lot of Zombieland and the rules of the world/game. Although the talking walls in this game really were kind of uppity and demanding... :D

Nice video guys. "Yeah Fishers mom makes great pie" :) Fisher is weird teaching his daughter about darkness being good. Creeepy dad with greepy writing walls. Is fisher on acid or something because he sees all those texts on the walls? :P I would have bought conviction if like any of the games in this spinter cell series would work properly. :/
