Firestorms erupt all over the world, and our only hope is a frozen guy.

A frozen guy who moves around a lot. I'm amazed Graham and Paul could pull that much funny out of something that bad.

I think I've had that dream too, except substitute a zombie for the praying mantis.

Also, was the "Nay" bit a Simpsons reference?

Please tell me G&P cut half of that cut scene out. It can't be that poor and disjointed?

Oh! Can we start calling Graham and Paul as "the GP"? I want to make that more prolific than "Blue Monday" and definately more than Grathleen.

I don't know for certain, but one of the things they've said before is that they don't edit the cut scene, or pick one from halfway through the game so that it's out of context. They tend to be naturally terrible.

Sometimes they cut out short bits of gameplay or combat training. This just seemed so...vague.

I laughed at the comedy, but I do have to ask: what the FUCK is the object of this game? You can't even get a decent idea on what the game is about in that cutscene. SEGA, you fail.

Sometimes we join a couple scenes together, but no, that's one solid chunk of fail.

Funny video.

They really should have let those people inside. They could have at least lived for a little while. Also, I liked Paul's line about feta cheese.

According to the Internet, this game is actually an RTS, and it reviewed terribly. Sometimes a bad cutscene means a bad game. Not always, but in this case most assuredly.
Just call me Dylan. It's easier to pronounce.

Yeah, it's by the people who make the Total War games, except this was their other studio.

I had just heard about this game about 2 weeks ago, so I knew what it was, and the video I watched DID say it was bad, but I didn't know it was THAT bad.
