The Arms Race

Postby Matt » 19 Jul 2010, 08:29

While Graham tries to fix a real problem, James and Matt are locked in mortal idiocy.

This is the best video in a very long time. Actual LOL's. Much love. :D

Though, I think Tim's arsenal would beat Paul's.

The beet was a stroke of masterful genius.

Whilst I realise it was getting absurd once Matt unleashed that Nerf longshot concoction, James' endgame guns were impractical at best.

The Raider is semi-automatic, so he'd have maybe one shot in it before having to drop his other gun in order to re-cock it.

Matt meanwhile has about 20 rounds in his Vulcan while only needing to press a button. James would have gone down.

But then Paul would just upgrade his arsenal, and I don't think Tim's can go much further.

This. . . was a masterpiece. I was laughing through pretty much the whole thing. I'd say Graham and Paul tie for most awesome performance in this series.

Wow.

The question is how Paul would upgrade Dartageddon.

The most obvious manner I think would be to up the number of missile darts, but presently they're a one-shot deal, game-ending though they may be. Paul needs something to buy him time to reload the missiles or to serve as light suppression until he can ensure a hit with them. Possible four networked Vulcan machine guns (two on each side) with a flipswitch firing method and substantial munitions reserve.

FYI - The creepy doll that Graham gets scared of is a real stuffy I made based on a character I drew in a comic long ago:

Although... would anyone want their own creepydoll? Made of felt? Maybe we could auction one off for Desert Bus?

So, I have to ask. Did you shoot bits of that a loooong time ago, or did they let you back in to shoot in moonbase mk II?

Fantastic episode! In particular, the Jeremy burn was hilarious; it also implies Graham would drop Kathleen before Jeremy, double burn I guess.

There should be a CrapShot where the doll fights the cardboard head infection from Episode 19.

I loved this video, because not only was it a long-awaited return to Hustle (my personal favorite), but it also felt to me like a return to form.

And I got to recognize all those guns. Heehee.

Loved it, guys!

Woo! commodoreHUSTLE!

I think maybe the word Matt was looking for was unimate. Using a very loose definition of the word "word" of course.

I lost my shit to the Vanilla Ice bit. I think the strength of that bit was the escalation of it: "haha, Vanillium Ice.", "Hah! Paul rapping.", "BEET?!?!", and then "I lolled forever".

Dammit how did Paul figure out my past time of interpreting rap lyrics literally? Straight for the heart, you're shooting!

Paul's rap interpretation scene definitely ranks among my favourite LRR moments EVER. Quite possibly at the very top.

This is possibly the funniest thing I've seen on a screen for some time now. Graham's freaked out acting with the creepy doll and figurine seem a bit to real. Is everything ok at home Graham, has Kathleen been creeping you out again?
I'm going to go ahead and say this now, best commodore Hustle yet.
