Infernal: Hell's Vengeance Part One

When you used to be an angel, everything sucks. Especially the textures.

Watch Video

First thought that entered my head when reading the description: Is this going to be this year's "Deadly Premonition" on Unskippable?

Just finished watching and can't deny that theory. Maybe not as crazy or B-movie-ish as "Deadly Premonition," but it doesn't look as bad enough that it might be fun to play like "Deadly Premonition."

That game looked terrible just from the scene. Seriously bad on a fundamental level. Eh, more fodder for you guys.

Even if that chick was an angel, I'd still think she was wacked out on coke.

On a side note, I don't think I've seen that much green since the last time I played an original Game Boy.

So... is she an angel for the Church of the Sea Mine?
Who knooooooows...

Infernal? Damn, I remember playing this when it first came out. It had the absolutely worst respawning enemies ever. They respawn right behind you, and the gameplay was kinda meh. But the graphics weren't all that bad. The insane quantity of bloom made everything fairly good looking.

Mr. Lennox, I assume you know who you're talking to?

Bob from accounting? If it's about those weird expense reports, I can explain: hookers don't give receipts outside of Amsterdam...

Wait... Pretend I didn't say that...

Played this back when I used to have Gametap and they offered it on there. A game where you battle the forces of Heaven and Hell...and then promptly don't fight anything except regular guys with guns until the final boss (GUESS WHAT, IT'S SATAN). And you get a few powers that were mostly just to solve puzzles. I just remember finding it really weird that Best Buy near me always seemed to carry it in their PC section for like two years after it came out. I'm guessing they just couldn't sell their stock but you'd think eventually they'd just give up and trash it.

That was great. One of the best Unskippables.

2009? Seriously? This thing came out in 2009 on the Xbox 360 and it looks that bad?
How did they do that?

wow this game looks terrible that scene between the dude in red and that chick was terrible looking. His cellphone looks like it was made of paper

Wow, that's one sequel I never expected to see. I mean, the original was pretty fun and all but it wasn't above mediocrity in any possible way. And I'm pretty sure it doesn't have any noteworthy following nowadays (or like, ever) to warrant a sequel.
Also why on Earth does it have the same graphics as the first game?

Why the hell did he point the gun at him, if she was just going to let him go anyway?

What system is this game for?

*checks*

360?! Seriously?!

I can tell Graham and Paul are going to be heaven a good time with this one.

I don't think it is a sequel, I think it was simply a re-release of the 2007 version with the added subtitle. Maybe they changed something, somewhere, but I've no idea what.

Horrible cutscenes like this really make for an awesome Unskippable episode :D Oh man, that was something else.

So...Satan looks like Laurence Fishburne in a bad suit? I was picturing more of a Don Vito Corleone, personally.

Ah, thank you for this. I think this is the most I've laughed at an unskippable since spider man. Looking forward to the next one!

I expected they would be wearing hazmat suits.

*Hears crappy music in background* Music brought to you by Eyebrows and the Thugs. Smooth jazz: all day, every day.

The subtitles are MUCH easier to read with the new HD capture!

Huzzah!
Good to hear.

My god, what kind of dev made that game? Were they high? That was god damn awful acting, awful lip synching and god damn ugly EVERYTHING!

All in all makes the best Unskippable in recent memory. Good show!

Calumon: ...That title is saying lots of mean things. Why can't people there give hugs? They might need them there!

This is probably one of the best Unskippables in a while, excellent work. You guys are really on your A-game when the game is absolutely terrible.

I thought angels were genderless. My mistake.

That is a sweet ruby backpack he's got there.

Probably can't hold much stuff though.

What's worse was the "Security" tag on the monitor showing the Sea Mine. Are people stealing Sea Mines from churches such a problem in this city? Or are they just being really, really hyper-careful and prepared? And yeesh, that girl (assuming she's a girl) Drop-kicked me straight into Uncanny Valley. Yeesh! So. Damn. Ugly. (shudder)

Telperion:

How did they do that?

It's actually a port of the original x-box version of the game, back then known as just "Infernal". I played it on PC back before the port and i thought it was alright, interesting story, gameplay and atmosphere. Bad things about it include crushingly hard parts in some stages, dodgy controls, and as shown in the video some god awful dialogue and lip syncing.

I'd say track it down and give it shot if you're a fan of third person shooters, if not..... avoid.

I now need this game to add to my "Oh God how bad is that?" collection

My immersion went to hell with a vengeance.

Ha! This was a good Unskippable. I was laughing several times throughout. Great job, guys!

Oh, and thanks for clarifying about the light levels. I was thinking for a bit "Man, their video capture software made this really dark, I can barely see anything in a lot of these scenes" but nope, it's all the game.

I'm looking forward to next week.

Okay, I thought I was looking at something from (at best) the early PS2 days. There is no excuse for graphics that bad in the age of HDTV.

Maybe she's like the CASTs from Phantasy Star Online, and that weird hair-like thing she has is actually a solid piece that's part of her head. Actually, maybe they're all CASTs, that would explain a lot.

I'd never even heard of this game before this. Now I see why. Does that cutscene ever make sense in-game?

I've literally have had people answer phone like that too me. and that's from people i haven't heard from for two years...

pretty good episode, it really is crappy textures
