Unskippable: Hybrid Heaven

The shower scene (that made little to no sense D=) reminded me of Heavy Rain. Right in the beginning.

I was "Lalalala... Take a shower and... Hellooooooo Ethan's cute bottom *beams*"

For a moment I was uncomfortable because my mom was with me when I was playing this part, but then she was "Damn, isn't he going to turn so we can see frontal?"

My mom rocks <3

Ive had pants that tight. They were burned and forgotten.

Why this N64 game? Was it because it was the only one with an opening FMV long enough for this? Star Fox 64 was way funnier.

I remember this game... I loved it. The plot is just the most hilarious yet awesome I've ever indulged in. In case anyone isn't aware, you play a member of the secret service who is disguised as a human-alien hybrid and must stop the hybrids and their monster-like army from taking over the world using a clone of the US president while at the same time making sure you meet up with your girlfriend as promised. It's like six different sci-fi and action game plots rolled into one. The gameplay was also interesting since it featured a mix of a fighting game with RPG elements, and it really wasn't that bad. The naked scene still bugs pretty much everyone though, and the graphics clearly haven't aged well. Ah well, rose-tinted glasses and whatnot.

It didn't occur to me until the post credits caption but the naked guy reminded me of Pauly D from Jersey Shore.

...and I'm slightly ashamed to admit that.

This game occupies a special place in my heart... upon a shrine of pure hate. Y'see, I had an N64 back in the day, and I rented this game on a whim. I battled my way through nonsensical scenes and difficult-to-win fights, then after six tries finally brought down the last boss... only to have the game freeze immediately after. I reset the game to find out it had WIPED MY CONTROLLER PAK. I had saves from six or seven games on there, including all the secret levels in Doom 64! Grr.

A few months later, I re-rented it (I'm such a masochist) and played through it again while using an empty Pak. Beat the last boss and watched the ending scenes. Really, I hadn't been missing much, but you should've heard the victorious expletives I growled at the cartridge afterwards.

they made me lose the game this sucks

Sweet! Hybrid Heaven!

This game was a blast to play!

Unfortunately, as you have all seen, it was not a blast to watch. The plot was Konami's take on a combination of the alien body-snatcher conspiracy cliche and the superpowered-amnesiac-action-hero cliche. Complete with wrasslin' combo tree! That's right, as you leveled up in the game, you could do bigger and better combos, but instead of doing a Virtua Fighter button mash, you did each move one at a time and the action would pause mid-crunch for you to choose between suplex and knee-to-the-tenders.

... seriously, it's more fun than I make it sound, once you get a couple hours in.

firemark:
Still amazing as always! Keep up the good work! It makes my Mondays suck less.

Hurr Durr Derp:
Running out of recent(ish) games to make fun of? :P

Does it matter?

I'm still waiting for them to make fun of HAVEN: call of the king. its not confusing,but it DOES make you want to murder adorable creatures in response to watchin it.

also godawful VA...

I almost thought this was a PS1 game. Thank god for Google.
What made me laugh more was when he moved a couple of feet further after he slipped off the elevator.

Calhoun347:
One thing they DIDN'T seem to comment on was that Purple-suit was looking DOWN at Alien-man's Junk the entire time.

I noticed that. Still, cut purple suit a break. I'm sure it was rather distracting.

Hahaha... I love it when you guys riff an old(er)-school game. Great episode.

My step-brother loved that game. I never played it though.

IanBrazen:
like how many times are you gonna say "and so Kratos cast himself from the highest mountain in Greece"

Every time a scene has someone stoically throwing themselves off a cliff.
We do it to point out how often it's used as a cliché. Just like crows, and first-person cameras being knocked out.

Anyway, sorry we're not batting 1000 for you anymore.

I understand but I can see the joke coming a mile away, but I guess sometimes you got to do the obvious joke.

But don't feel bad If im not lovin it like I used to, like I said I don't know why I don't find you guys as funny as I used to.
The obvious jokes are only a small part, so It mite just be me.

I still love the other stuff you guys do, and everyone else seems to still love unskippable, so don't let my discouraging post bother you.
Im still a big fan.

EDIT: looking back at my post I think I came off a little bit harsher than I meant too.
I know how it feels when people say something you worked hard on sucks, so sorry for coming off like that.

Oh man, Hybrid Heaven. The memories. I remember renting that game before I had a memory card. It didn't save to the cartridge so I just replayed the beginning three times.

It was weird because it had a realistic RPG-like battle system, in which you could throw hooks and straights and grabs and stuff, but you were using these to fight strange lizardmen and octopus beast things. Well, it was weird because of lot of things, including this.

I'd love to see more cutscenes from the bottom of the chest. I loved the FFV 'special' episode.

bahahahah WHAT!? I was JUST discussing this game a week ago and nobody could remember the damn game. Unskippable I love you for this.

I normally don't watch 'Unskippable', but this one attracted me because I actually rather liked this game. Interesting to see it here, but it WAS one of the few N64 games to have a fully cinematic opening cutscene with voice acting, so why not? Hybrid Heaven was a unique game and a lot better than this cutscene makes it look (although for its time this cutscene was HUGELY impressive on the N64) and I wish they'd put it back on the Virtual Console.

Man... You guys seem to pick the goofiest games. I've never even heard of this one, but seriously! The naked alien guy we've been following gets shot, then dissapears, and now this new indian guy is the main character? IT DON'T MAKE SENSE. And that woman doesn't even flinch... Well done lads. You've found yet another horribly weird cutscene. You should be proud.

Well actually, it DOES make sense in the long run, the game is a sort of mystery/conspiriacy/action/horror mix.

Valate:
Wait so the president of Russia wants a random guy who dies 3 minutes later to escort the president? And there's this chick who has some unknown connection to the random guy? But he isn't the main character because he gets shot and dissapears? Okay I''m thoroughly confused.

The guy in purple obviously wasn't the President of Russia. He was standing behind the American president presumably because he's a presidential aide or something. The chick is Johnny's girlfriend, who left the message on his phone. I have NO idea what she was doing on that train platform at that particular time.

The 'I can speak her language' gag was hilarious. Excellent work.

Blue-State:
Why are they doing a game that is over ten years old?

I think the better question is:

Why not?

What made me laugh more was when he moved a couple of feet further after he slipped off the elevator.

I noticed that too :P he fell off, then the camera changed angles and he was (what looked like to me) several feet higher than we he started falling.

and we thought the N64 was awesome. I guess some games just don't stand the test of time.

Ocarina of Time, Starfox 64 and Super Mario 64 are all timeless. Sure they don't look that amazing, but they aren't ugly, even by today's standards.

God I hated everything about this game, hooorible.

There was at least 2 different scenes where the suit was giving virtua fighter a purple nurple and not 1 single mention of it? We will blame it on E3 fever this time but don't let it happen again.

you guys should do dragon quest 8. I've been playing that game when my friends were over and the other day, I started a new game and we were making some hilarious jokes during the opening cutscene

lolll "they are getting married" and "gee I wonder which one's supposed to be the Russian president"...gosh less than a minute into the video and I've already laughed out loud (in a public area too)

and it only keeps going hahahaha

Oh, how I do love this goofy, goofy, Goofy game. I actually really enjoyed the battle system and had gotten most of the way through when My bro sold the N64 for the original Max Payne. Great episode by the way.

nice episode

Haha, that was amazing XD I've never heard of it but it looks like it makes no sense!

The cracks about him moving at the pace of a RE zombie got a healthy chuckle out of me. If anything, I think the zombies might move faster than this guy.

wtf.
i know that games old, but man. those are some horrible graphics.

I remember playing this as a kid. Awesome video! I lold IRL

Well, that was... weird.

On the upside, hugging things out seems to end up with far less dead bodies than usual.

Man, when I fall I always land on my feet-butt too!

I kept wanting to tell that russian President "Hey, eyes up here buddy."

also, hooray for old games!

Xsist:
Haha :P The future 10 years ago ^^ Was odd to see how bad the graphics where back then. I remember them being super realistic!

I know. Had the same thought. I just might get my N64 from storage and see how realistic graphics it really had ;-)
