wow... extremely dark and for older viewers for sure... I LOVE IT! I think of all the new shows I like this one the best so far! The twist at the end was unexpected! I nearly jumped from my chair when I saw him/her... *laughs*

[EDIT]:
After a bit of thought... there probably should be a warning for it... M for mature or something.

Ahaha that was so funny. I loved the expression on Mario's face when Luigi walks in on him. The cast is perfect as well. Almost every scene had me laughing my ass off. Is this going to be a regular show now? Please say yes. Also, is this sort of based around Smash Bros? Or just Nintendo in general. Or does it not really matter.

The bit with Kirby was awesome!

It's too slow.
Took 5 minutes to get a small laugh out of me.

I think every time I laughed was primarely down to its original concept. I mean I know the whole show with real people playing video game characters has been done a lot of times but the style of this one just makes it so funny.

This is great! I love the idea!

This is pretty good the scapist has done some good adds for this new year

Wow, that was A LOT better than I thought it'd be! Keep it up!

That was...incredible! So dark, so funny, so awesome! I hope this series becomes a permanent addition to the escapist.

It's obviously not meant to be too funny, it takes on a different side of Nintendo characters that we've never really seen before.

But overall I thought it was very creative and deep. I want to see some more of this!

I thought I'd enjoy a dark Mario style, how wrong I was. Still, it's better than most recent Mario games!

Even though I hated it, at least I respect it for being new and origonal.

This is genius. It's dark, subtle, and funny as hell. I've never seen a web series quiet like this. Please, make this a regular!

I noticed that almost all of the music is actual music from Mario Bros. but retooled to be film noir-style music. Its pretty clever, don't know if I'd watch it regularly though.

I remember seeing this MONTHS ago, and I didn't get a chance to finish it. Glad you guys picked it up! I love this thing!

It's hilarious, but at the same time, I want to know what happens... really caught my attention.

LOVE IT.
"Good evening. Princess"

Class!

This actually surprised me as being interesting. I thought this was just going to be an attempt at humor by going "haha, videogame characters doing things they don't normally do" but I was amused.

Edit: Anyone catch the ringtone was form sonic cd?

All superb quality, not much to add really.. besides this:

Does anyone think that there's too many live-marios out there?

The Kirby part is just great. I love how all the characters are dark.

I'm kinda wondering where all these new series are coming from. Sure, Unskippable won a contest but this and another recent addition, where are they coming from? Maybe the Escapist received a big sack o' cash in the mail (Return Sender: Unknown) and decided to spend it all on buying up videogame series. Or boosting their salaries, whatever.

Main question: why are we seeing so many new videos at once?

Wow, incredible! So subtle, sublime and fantastically written. Great characterisation, the acting was spot on. Everything was just...fantastic.

SSB, because you notice that all the people who were killed were people who were in Melee but not Brawl.

The other recent addition (Doomsday Arcade, right?) tied in the film contest with Unskippable, that's why that's there. This, I have no idea.

That's a fair question. The short answer is I have to justify my existence as Director of Video Content by actually producing video. Kind of a double edged sword, that title.

The long answer is that Unskippable and Doomsday Arcade (AKA "Acradocalypse") were both grand prize winners of our recent Film Festival. Since the Grand Prize was a series contract with The Escapist, we kind of shot ourselves in the foot by telling them they won and had to offer them a contract. Whoops.

Our third new series, There Will be Brawl, has been in the works for some time. We're always on the lookout for exciting new video series to bring to our audience. We have a pretty high standard of quality, which is why we don't launch new video series more often, but we're always looking. We were thrilled to have found Brawl and even more thrilled that the creators were excited about adding their show to our growing lineup of exciting, new video. We hope you enjoy it as much as we do.

For more fruits of this never ending search for new video, watch The Escapist Show every Tuesday to see a new short video each week that may someday become a series.

As for why all of this new video is coming out at once, we scheduled the launch of all three of our newest series for this week specifically to dazzle and awe all of you fine folks. Looks like that worked. Enjoy!

I saw this first episode some time ago (about several months) and couldn't wait until the second episode came. But unfortunately, there were none. How often will this seriers be releasing new episodes?
Still, great show, and surprisingly wellmade.

Absolutely amazing. This has the potential to take the #1 top series spot from Unforgotten Realms (Yes Yahtzee fanboys, Yahtzee sucks now and he isn't #1 on the escapist; his jokes are stale and he hasn't done many visual jokes in ages).

I'm interested in the other new video series, Doomsday Arcade. I think it has great potential but, that's what I said about VGT too and look how that turned out. Anyway, Doomsday Arcade had a mediocre start which I think will become quite good when they get to develop the plot.

I love this series, it is awesome. I think I saw the same video on college humour or something like that. I do love it though, its like a view on Mario for older people.

i ve noticed acting quality has gone up.

As I have stated before the first episode of Unskippable was good. My only concern being that they depend on games having long cutscenes were as every other videos on The Escapist have the freedom of imagination.

Also as I have stated, Doomsday arcade was the only one in my book to have a mediocre first episode but, has the potential to improve when they develop a plot.

There Will Be Brawl had an amazing first episode with a dramatic plot with refrences to how these characters have been milked dry. This has potential to unseat Unforgotten Realms from it's throne.

I'd like to wish all of those involved with any of these videos good luck in thier quest to top The Escapists videos. Russ, nice job and I'm looking to see any future videos.

I like this, it's defiantly unique compared to most things (especially abotu video games) we see these days. I think it's worth my time. Though don't try to go too overboard with any dark effects or story lines or anything. the story seems good but seeing as it's a video game parody try and be gentle with it is all I'm saying.

I completely love the last part.

In short: Great
In long: Grrrrrreeeeeeeeeeeeaaaaaaat

Propably the best fan-made video about SMB/SSB that I have ever seen. I am craving for more mushrooms and more episodes.

that was as dark as it gets, this will be the next great video seris!!!

Quoting for emphasis. Same thougths.

Loved it! Excellent acting and plot there, brilliant parody.
Accents went a little odd now and then but other then that very nicely done.
