Wow... that is a pathetic devil... Still, at least he hasn't been demoted to Apple tech support...

What? That guy can't be CEO, he's upper management at best.

Considering all his other minions ended-up, the player character has a better chance on his own. Better order him some Viagra, cuz that is one impotent devil.

Are you paying too much in fire injury damages? Do you accidentally incinerate new employees without meaning to? Would you rather burn off beard stubble rather than shave? Ask your Doctor about "Scorchestra" and if it may be right for you! Scorchestra, for that burninating pain and accidental fire throwing...

Hochtempelberg by the way means "High Temple Mountain" in German and there is no such place anywhere in the world ;)

/edit: And "Tempelberg" alone is the word Germans use for the Temple Mount in Jerusalem, so yay for cheap symbolism.

Wait... he flipped a Kennedy half dollar, but he called the coin "Mr. Dollar"? I'm confused!

Christian/Jewish symbols have to play a role in a game about heave and hell it wouldn't be completed without them.

The only part of this cutscene I like was the coin flip part at the end where is zooms up on "In God we Trust"

And now we need a mittens rock t-shirt.

Or a skit trying to do devil horns but you can't because you're wearing mittens.

Heaven and Hell really must be feeling the GFC pinch. Talk about down-sizing. Though, they'd be more interesting now. All that fire and clouds sounded very boring to me. After all, after you've seen one burning pillar or white cloud bank, you've seen them all.

I'm actually quite interested in this story. The in God we trust part was really interesting.

But I want to see where it goes. If Satan turns out to be the good guy, it's lame, but it doesn't look like it's going that way. So we either have the protagonist getting led further and further down the wrong path till he does something really atrocious, but I don't see that happening so much because they didn't establish anything good now that he'd regret destroying.

So we have antsy confrontations with angels, all trying to reach out to him and he keeps on rejecting him until when it comes to the last coin toss he tears himself free, foils Satan and does a whole lot of good as he's taken up to heaven. Maybe even a 'this was all part of the plan' thing going on. (Not his plan, God's plan). That'd be pretty cool.

Else he's on God's side subverting Satan from the inside. It's got potential but it'd fall flat for me in the end because it makes signing a contract with the opposite number not much of a deal, which would devalue Satan in the story

EDIT: No, doing some research, they went for lame 'Dark Eaville, is on a mission to stop Heaven's agency and bring back the delicate balance between good and evil.' That's even worse than I thought. I mean for one, that name is ridiculously stupid and secondly, who on earth wants to balance good and evil?? That's worse than bringing balance to the force. Oh gee things are really good at the moment, I do wish there was a bit of torturing and soul destorying to balance out this nice time I'm having

I cannot conceive of a single scenario in which someone would see it as a good idea to use those lines about mittens in a video game. The writers of this game must have been on all of the drugs, simultaneously.

usually, these vids make me want to play the game and see just how badly it keeps going.
but this, just makes me want to /facepalm
everything about the cutscene just makes me want to bang my head to a desk

Kirk: What would Satan need with a communicator?

that was awesome, lol devil needed technology... who knew

Just as I thought. Satan is less of an evil dualistic parallel version of God, and more of a lame scammer/ loan shark/ cult leader who makes you think he's more powerful than he actually is.

Did anyone else notice that coin was dated 1984?

Looks like the most, unintentionally hilariously bad game ever made.

aside from the "In God We Trust" on the coin, everything was was pretty poor :/ does not receive a passing grade lol...

Man, these people sure make a lot of unnecessary gestures when they speak.

Also, is it just me, or does Satan seem less "all-powerful god of evil" and more "bumbling businessman"? He admits to his minions being failures, and he lets whats-his-face backsass him all the time. Not proving to be very competent right now, chief.

Why does Elena Zubrov have a girl's first name and a man's last name? Russian requires gender agreement, you see. Also, this last name means "bison", a bison playing the Big Bad Wolf, apparently.

Wow...

Hell is fucking boring.

"I'M NOT IMMUNE TO FIRE!!!"

Heh, what you guys said during the part where Lennox was set on fire was good for a laugh. For me, at least.

But anyway, I never heard of this game before seeing part 1 of this Unskippable. Then I find out the game was over 2 years old and was pretty much hated. How did you happen upon this game to begin with?

"...and mittens. Mittens rock, you should try them."

There must be some way to make that sound less silly, but I can't think of one.

I actually thought he was going to reject the offer after that clearly divine/symbolic message. I'm still really confused why he took the deal, I mean if he was an ex-angel wouldn't he know that the demon/devil guy intends to eventually fuck him over?

I guess he didn't watch Super Natural or something lol

Anyway this is probably the funniest Unskippable in recent memory, but I have the dangling suspicion the show is on the verge of getting canned. Just seems like Graham and Paul don't really wanna do it anymore.

I'm sorry you think so!
For what it's worth, we DO want to do it :)

Considering i finished Castlevania: Lords of Shadow just the other day and found that version of Satan to be lacking this one here is really just weird...

And i guess, "Mittens are cool" is what they were trying to say?

Did they ever state that that guy was the devil, or was it just assumed? Cuz it really seems like he can't be, and if he is he's a pretty poor devil...

WTF sort of lame devil is this?

Well if you guys ever did stop I can't say I would hold it against you. Running the same show for so long must get very tiresome, still glad Unskippable isn't done just yet :D

That's good to hear guys, but you still have yet you match your Dirge of Cerberus episode. IMHO anyway.

If that's all that confuses you, count yourself lucky. Besides, if he flipped a Susan Anthony dollar, he'd be taking advice from a woman!

Couldn't stop thinking "I'll get you next time, Gadget!"

I did the google search. Someone was going to, right?

I found Jagdschloss Granitz:

Inmitten eines großen zusammenhängenden Buchenwaldgebietes im Südosten der Insel Rügen wurde in den Jahren 1837 bis 1846 das Jagdschloss Granitz errichtet. Hier, auf dem Tempelberg wurde der verputzte Backsteinbau von dem Berliner Architekten Johann Gottfried Steinmeyer für Fürst Wilhelm Malte 1. zu Putbus gebaut.

It's on a little bump called Tempelberg, but I wouldn't call it particularly hoch. Link to google map with sea level raised 60m to highlight the higher ground: 54deg 22min 50.5sec north, 13deg 37min 38.6sec east, overlooking a lot of the Baltic so at least the snow's realistic and he'd have good reasons to appreciate the beauty of mittens. "Baltic" is RAF slang for "extremely cold."

Wow, so Satan sucks at charity. Who would have guessed?
