Russel is back! also, very little emotions on the soldiers' faces :O

Oh, this disappoints me. The video was funny to be sure, but I love this game and this kind of made it look bad.

"My eyes are burning" says the soldier with goggles on his helmet...

I also can't tell the difference between these generic American soldiers. It shouldn't matter even if soldier was a race as they have guns. People who have guns do not need defending!

Nice to see Russel is still around. Too bad there wasn't a crowsplosion!

Great episode, you guys really keep making me laugh.

"This gritty reboot of the Care Bears is not what I expected."

And then, I died laughing. Damn it all.

It's interesting that on the inverse, the Russians have no problem making games about defeats in war. There was a Russian RTS/3PS hybrid a while back that focused pre-Stalingrad WWII. I made a mental note to track that game down about two years ago, and have since forgotten the title. (Apologies if this is a little rambling.)

That wouldn't be Men of War you're thinking of, would it? That game did have a pretty cool campaign, if the voice acting was pretty ridiculous at times...(Russians sounding more French sometimes than Russian..)

Heh, 5:10 I thought "instant burial" and a second later they made the same joke. :-)

Aren't cutscenes supposed to actually tell you what is going on? Other than that, another great episode.

If you'd played the previous 2 games you'd know what was going on, and it is really a requirement if you wanna understand anything in Hells Highway. I'd recommend all3 BIB games as they are all good, though the 3rd one is a tad unnecessary.

HH has a nice twist at the end though.

I like this one a whole lot, a lot of things that made me laugh. Russel, the goggles comment, the thing about them all looking alike (I thought the same thing), screaming smoke...

That cutscene itself seems to make no sense though.

Ok, that made absolutely no sense.

It was a bad cutscene but this wasn't funny at all.

Lol, I hope that silver plated gun at least proved useful at some point in the game. Great commentary ^~^!

It was funny, but kind of unfair to the game itself, I mean yes they were in Eindhoven, but one of their team was lost inside the city, he shouted stand in the door because that's the procedure and your not really allowed to skip it, they all look the same because they are all white males between the ages of 16-35 wearing the same clothes and he sits down instead of going on because he is suffering from ptsd, which is one of the things I like about this game, the PC is not some all knowing elite supersoldier, but someone with very real limitations.

All of the events in the jumps are explained either in this game or the previous two. It would probably be better to think of this as a mid game cutscene rather than an intro.

Oh and the goggles on the helmet, how the hell did I not see that when I was playiing the game?!

That was difficult to understand what was happening in the show. Thankfully, when the game first came out, I was tempted to try it out. However, after seeing these cutscenes, I can gladly say that I saved myself a few bucks.

Also, when they showed us the kid and the pistol, I was reminded of Starcraft 2's easter egg "iPistol". (And did that pistol really say the title of the game engraved into it? That's just... weird)

Burail Detail... damn that's morbid.

Then, again, I thought the same thing in the movie Red Dawn when the chick with the nose let herself get caught by the Russians while lying on a grenade.

Amerikanski For The Win!

'its backwards for them right'. One of your best lines XD

Blue-State:

Antidamacus:
Swing and a miss

What were they swinging AT?
Also, Graham and Paul might want to watch Band of Brothers sometime: Market Garden WAS pretty brutal. Thanks a bunch Montgomery!

Which was about Nijmegen/Arnhem and not Eindhoven. Completely different battle.

DrMcCoy:
Naw, the goggles do nothing.

For a first post, that was pretty damn good I must say.

At 1:05, at least we know why they are jumping out of the planes.

That was so confusing XD wth was happening when and where?

Lol'd at the 'My eyes are burning' 'Maybe you should put on the GOGGLES that are on your helmet!'

Funny episode. It's also weird seeing what looks like a good game here. I mean, the cutscene itself is a confused mess, but not many shooters go into flashbacks of family history for the protagonists. So, is this like a famous series? 'Cause I've never heard of it.

Bone up on your history sometime, the WHOLE THING was a COMPLETE FAILURE!
If there were any movies about Nijmegen/Arnhem i'd recommend them.

SCREAMING EAGLES FTW!

that cutscence made no sense.

Great ep, except for the pronunciation of Eindhoven. Good effort though;)

Also, I strongly advise against shooting smoke. Just don't, okay...

...maybe. I'm genuinely not sure, and I kind of suspect it was Faces of War, another game by the same developer, but... that could be it.

Really funny but that intro was really Akward.

What the hell was going on in that cutscene? I saw someone ready to jump out of a plane, about 4 people dying and someone finding a silver gun and I still don't know anyone's name. That was weird.

they used cutscenes from all over the game not just one spot this time

ot: overall (maybe its just because i liked this game) i thought the cutscenes werent bad, thus eliminating the point of making fun of them, and also i didnt like the fact you guys used like 10 of them just all over the place

PEOPLE THIS WASNT 1 CUTSCENE IT WAS MANY PUT TOGETHER

they should have said that at the end...

baauuularu..headwound..unnawara

I have no idea what was going on in that cutscene. I mean seriously, it jumped around and were those D&D numbers outside the locations/dates? I mean I swear a saw a +5 in there. What does that even mean?! But lol great episode, I agree that I don't know who any of those people were.

Oh, and I have to ask because it's three pages and I'm late for work. Did ya'll go back in time to the 1920's and then broadcast your commentary on a radio? I thought at first that it was done that way on purpose or something. Then as it went on I wasn't sure that Graham wasn't just yelling at the microphone from really far away.

I missed Russel jokes. Nice to see them back. :-)
The 3X modifier joke was funny, too.

As for the whole thing itself... Guys, this wasn't your best, but I don't blame you. You didn't have a whole lot to work with. It's not good, but it's not bad. It's more of just "What?"

Dear GOD that was terrifying! 0.0 My name IS Matthew and I AM broke!

This comments section is very biased towards this game. Personally i loved it, and i loved this episode, i lol'd at the "Stand in the door!" part.

Made me laugh alot.

"Bros in Arms before Hoes in Arms'

THIS WAS THE WORST CUT SCENE EVER.
Capslock definitely needed.

I'd play Hoes in Arms. Can't be worth than this.
