I'd play that... if it was a Final Fantasy.
I want a Pinkie launcher.

You don't want to do a Let's Play on a game that doesn't work.

The majority of a LP of this game would be load screens. Literally, more than half the game is load screens, and blank ones at that.

Good god this game is awful. After the sheer terror of the people who did the other LP of this, I decided to buy the game myself because I'm a horrible person. 11% of the game is loading, the other 89% is creepy slash fic and broken gameplay.

Ugh. Sonic has gotten to a point where his personality alone is just annoying.

The whole thing summed up right at the start: "Alright, now back to this Final Fantasy game"

That is all that needs to be said.

It looks like a halfway decent Final Fantasy/Generic JRPG game.

...and then Sonic with his ONE-EYE-TWO-PUPILS shows up.

that was really weird. Why make a game that looks for all the world like a generic JRPG, then have sonic come in and completely break the aesthetic. Madness.

Sonic broke the aesthetic? I don't think so. Robotnik totally broke it.

I really wish they hadn't switched to the Japanese name. You know why they used to call him Robotnik in the English versions? Because it wasn't fucking stupid, that's why.

in the old comics there was this storyline about how he used to be dr kintobor before an accident turned him into dr robotnik. dr namgge doesn't quite have the same ring to it, let alone being borderline unpronounceable!

Quite possibly one of the finest Unskippable's I've seen yet. Bravo. Also, quite possibly one of the most horrible cutscenes I've ever seen on this show, despite the fact that its production values and voice acting far exceeded most of the other things you've shown.

I'm way late to the party on this thread, but I just caught this Unskippable and I think it's one of the best I've seen. I would've never guessed that Sonic the Hedgehog could put together a cutscene extensive enough for Unskippable and then have it so masterfully lambasted. Kudos, Graham and Paul.
