Drinking game:

Drink whenever the narrator says: war, changed or control

Also, is it just me or did the first guy killed by the walking leg things get tea-bagged to death?

I'm not quite sure if I understand the concept here.... has war changed?

Ok, guys? I just want to clear something up here, since there seems to be some confusion. Remember war? The killing people in large quantities thing? Yeah, that. It's changed. War, changed. War = changed. Everybody got that? Good. Glad we could get that straight.

Also, in a deliciously meta turn of events, the ad I got while watching this Unskippable was for Metal Gear August on Unskippable.

Excellent moustaches, and great eye acting from Graham! To quote Gir, "I love this show!".

The whole "you have war before breakfast?" bit reminded of an Eddie Izzard routine... not sure if it was meant to...

Anyway, very funny and I hope the rest of the month will be too.

The mustaches probably aren't going to help that much. Looking like Benson Cunningham around an angered Kojima is only asking for trouble. Though it may increase your chases of being helped by the mysterious "KcebmuHnav Nagrom"

At this rate, they'll probably not get through the first chapter.

I always did like how the first guy to go down by the Metal Gears takes a Gekko's knee right to the face. He got gravikneed.

In any case, as much as I would manrape David Hayter if I saw him, I really hated his attempt to make Snake sound older. That entire monologue is nails on a chalkboard.

Geez, I'd be tipsy in the first minute. And, yeah, it did kinda look like a leathal tea-bag.

There was so much win in this one! OMG, I can't even begin to say what my favorite part was. I can't wait for the next four. :)

Well, I'm not sure how this will end, but I like it. Very funny, and hey! The patrons of the Escapist now get to see what graham and Paul look like (mustachioed, that is).
Well, hallo there.

It's really funny reading the comments on the Escapist, and how every third one is "they look different" and "the little guy's voice sounds nothing like what I expected him to look like" or the like.

But yeah, really great video. It wasn't one of the best ones, but I feel like it's warming up, and by the time we get to the fifth installment, there will be so many running gags established that it'll be just amazing.

Also, nice work on not ever mentioning Loading Ready Run, but subtly wearing the t-shirts!

That makes Paul 5'11", so really neither of us are "the little guy".

Jesus Saltpeter Christ, you're 6'4?

So, we've got five episodes of MGS4 - that's about half an hour or so.

That's barely scratching the surface. Especially as I recall at least one individual cutscene lasting about half an hour on it's own.

I was disappointed not to see the minute of in-universe television (advertisements for PMCs, an incredibly awkward interview with Actor David Hayter, etc) that happens between clicking "new game" and the part you showed. Is the ability to change channels is too interactive for Unskippable?


Incidentally, don't play MGS4 if you're a few hours from bed time. "I'll just wait until this cutscene is over and save and go to bed" doesn't really work with a game with such monumental cutscenes as MGS4 (there is one point where there's literally over an hour between two playable segments)

The cutscenes must be that long for a reason... is there anyone here who enjoys them?

Also, Graham hides his mustache...with...a mustache? Genius!

Yessssssss. Another Unskippable! My life has renewed meaning!

No but seriously. If you guys ever become a super hero duo, I think the mustaches will be a requirement.

Also, Paul had some great lines in this one. "Aw maaaaaan" when Snake didn't get to knife a guy... fantastic.
