Somehow I missed all the stuff about Yahtzee being in the thing and his voice totally caught me off guard. It was awesome.

AWESOME! My two favorite things on Escapist join forces to make two mega-zords!...err...episodes. I'm going to be anticipating Wednesday very much.

That was pretty awesome, it turned watching any cutscene from any Star Ocean game into an enjoyable romp for all the fanbase.

So does the calling out of Yahtzee mean Paul and/or Graham will be somehow involved with the next Zero Punctuation? Or was that just good-natured ribbing?

Speaking of which, how did you collaborate with Yahtzee exactly? I was under the impression you're significant distances apart.

They talked on Skype at least, and they either recorded him talking over that, or once they had the script worked out they recorded their parts separately and put them together in post.

The miracles of the internet.

I will indeed be making an appearance in ZP on Wednesday.
What form that takes, is a surprise!

When that chick pointed at the camera I would have shouted "Objection!" Then again I've been wanting to shout objection at any chance I've gotten since I've been playing Ace Attorney games for the last month.

Excellent crossover, is it bad that the best parts were before and after the actual discussion of the video? Either way, it was fun. Looking forward to Wednesday's ZP.

That was pretty cool! Although, I thought Yahtzee didn't pull off the deadpan thing as well as Graham and Paul, so I'm expecting you guys to be similarily out of your depth on wednesday. But you are clearly genii so I may be surprised.

Awesome!

I was initially very concerned that it didn't go up at noon, but it was well worth the wait.

Can't wait for Wednesday.

Now I'm really looking forward to a ZP for the first time in a few months :): it used to be the highlight of my week in a geeky sense, but then Doomsday Arcade overtook it in terms of specialness.

Really can't wait to see how this collaboration will work out!

That would be so meta it's nigh-unbelievable...




But we do know from Game Damage that Yahtzee has access to a decent-quality video camera and can perform from a given script...

That was an amazing episode of Unskippable but I am slightly confused by something and I am hoping either Graham or someone else could clear it up for me. Is only Graham going to be in ZP episode on Wednesday or is Paul going to be there also? Either way this weeks episode of ZP will be awesome.

While have Yahtzee in it was awesome I do not think it flowed as well other Unskippables. Chalk it up to cross pacific collaboration.

As if things aren't funny enough with just Graham & Paul, adding Yahtzee just sent the video's awesome content up by like a million. That was just GREAT!

(Can't wait to see Graham on ZP!! :D)

Yahtzee has a sweet hat as we all know, if you close your eyes and just listen, you can hear it whisper on the wind.

Its awesome that you guys are doing a crossover! Unskippable is at its funniest when you take on characters and interact, which this one lacked. That cutscene was pretty bland, though.
