Seriously, Space Norwegians would be awesome. With longship-shaped vessels? Oh, I so want to see this now.

Call me inpractical, but surely a massive orbital gun that fires microwave beams has no other purpose than to kill people in a heinous way. That scientist may want to go back to the drawing board.

Norway FTW.
we will of course take over a giant space laser in the future xD

It seems that you can never have enough space ships when your in a futuristic setting created by Japanese game designers.

"...we have now achieved recursive spaceships" I had to pause the video I was laughing so hard! Shear awesome sauce! Fantastic job guys; keep it up!

Astalano:
A better space station would be Lenin shaped with laser beams coming out of his eyes.

Definitely, DEFINITELY this.

I also love the quote at the end - "The Russians have complete control of this thing." Really? The Russians have completely control over something that they autonomously designed, built, launched, positioned, and operated from its initial inception to the present moment? Who would have guessed?

I have the perfect music for that, too.

i can't believe i'm just realizing this, but, that wanna god general dude totally ripped that line "come on you apes! you wanna live forever?!" from the movie Starship Troopers!!!
that movie's like sacred ground, you can't quote it in shitty intros.

Poor guy. A super awesome high tech suit and some idiot put his helmet connections on upside down.

So many Paradoxes.

Well

Meh, germans, russians, english. I wish Brazil would be a videogame evil country. Why only Europe can be evil?

Well , that may work , but personally I think that music is too slow for a scene with Space Norwegians, With longship-shaped vessels. Personally some power (and/or heavy) metal, and there need to be a lot of hammers, axes, beards and beer! Now you have to excuse me , I have to start upgrading my old longship into something that would work in space.

Space vikings, they would most likely just hit and run, grabing all the loot and good looking chicks. Well at least for starters, i think Paris was plundered a silly amount of times by vikings, and one time they tried to bribe the vikings. It dident work tho, the vikings grabed the bribe, and looted the city anyway.

So when the game was in production, the bad guys were Chinese, but apparently it was hard for a western audience to grasp the concept of evil, invading space Chinese. I have to wonder if it really matters anyway since the entire game seems to be focused on fighting robots. Also, who were the testers that couldn't comprehend Chinese villains? Honestly, it makes more sense that it is evil aliens or evil cyborgs/robots. I mean, the evil dude in the first part looked way more cybernetic than Russian or Chinese.

Also, why are all the American ships blue? And not even Navy blue, but sky blue. They should all be camouflage colored, sure it doesn't make sense for space, but it's better than sky blue.

I'm going to let you in on a secret. Games and movies don't portray space Norwegians because our government pays good money to prevent it. This is so that when our space age time comes, noone will suspect a thing.

You know I can't help but remember hearing about a role-playing game with Space Finland in it.

laststandman:
Anyone else notice the brief bit of plagiarism this game pulled from Starship Troopers ?

Well that movie took it from Heinlein's book, with which it has little in common, and afaik Heinlein quoted an infantry officer from the WWI with those words, so it is fitting in a way.

O.T.: imho one of the best Unskippable episodes, on par with the initial awesome episodes.

Wow, this game looks crazy xD Nice vid choice guys lol

Haha, man I just watched the "Boosh" video the other day. I was wondering if you still kept saying that to each other.

Also, whenever I see Gruff Robot Guy with his robot arm, I see Captain Drachma from Skies of Arcadia.

You know a game is good when it make Starship Troopers references.

Whatever WWI officer said it, he took it from Frederick the Great. I guess you're right though, it is somewhat fitting.

Y'know, the guys on the Red team (I presume they were the Russians) didn't even look human... They looked more like geth from Mass Effect.

YES!!! DAMNATION WAS TERRIBLE!!!.... oh so terrible

Do any of you know if unskippable has already done an episode of the opening cutscene in Halo; combat evolved? If yes, please direct me to it. If no, should they do one?

CatinHat:
pew pew pew XD

You guys should do voice overs :p

Pew-pew-pew-pew NYOOOWWWWWW...

You know what? Come to think of it, they kinda already have:

Damn right we're gonna come fuck you up in the future. When we run out of oil we'll have to return to a pillage-based economy.

Man, space vikings would be so awesome...
Wait a second... Why does that sound familiar?
*rustling noises*
*breaking glass*
*cat scream*

Oh god... Too human.

It is also now confirmed that if you merely mention Norway in your video, every Norwegian on the site will rush to comment on it.
We just want someone, anyone, to notice us...

I'm so confused!!!
Shouldn't they have prepped the assault boats before they entered the giants space ship in a space ship...
They aren't space russians they are Cosmonauts.

Are simulators are VERY thorough!!!..I love the way he said that

I bet you, their next game will feature Zombie Russian Robots !

Wait, I just realized something... That protagonist looks AND sounds like Solid Snake! He even smokes!

Also, There are so many things happening, and so many questions as to why certain things happen that it's like, why am I even watching this? It makes no sense! How made this, and what were they thinking while making it! Not really mad, just confused and annoyed by it all.

So, who's the voice actor playing the old guy who cut the younger guy's cigarette? He sounds very familiar...

A Japanese TPS as written by John Milius.

Bad guy looks like a transvestite clown (also known as Kefka's Syndrome). Take a shot.
Someone invents a "beneficial" science that can be casually used as a superweapon. Take a shot.
The main gameplay aspect is a single vestigial trait (in this case power sliding) that really isn't that impressive (like Mind Jack, only less philosophical). Take a shot.
Tiny sleek-power armored too-cool-for-this-war Dante-esque smug jerk as the protagonist. Take a shot.
Said protagonist having a wang-waving contest with prototypical brick-shithouse American Space Marine stereotype. Take a shot.

Can I stop yet? My liver is shutting down...

still one of the best episodes :D also went back to play this game again, and it's still a blast at times lol
