Seriously? Walls that talk and explaining combat mechanics to a child? I'm bad enough without a game talking down to me. :(

Lovin the tactical lens flare

But that bit with the kid and the darkness just seemed... creepy. Inordinately so...

I have to say, props to them for giving a combat tutorial in a new way, but did it have to be to a small child?

Also, you know the interrogators are going:
"Aw man, I brought all these torture devices for nothing."
"...You wanna torture him anyway?"

Oh yeah, funny video too :p

I went into this video fully expecting a Mike Patton/darkness joke, and was not disappointed.

Enjoyable video. I liked Graham's tripod bit, and Paul's line about the sitting duck.
Just call me Dylan. It's easier to pronounce.

Ah man, there should have been at least ONE interrogation scene. But the first one was quite a ways in.

Anyway, this one seemed really quick to me. I don't know if it was the game or you guys, but either way, I found it funny.

Damn those uppity walls and their condescension.

Very funny, although i'd have liked more.

I came here to say this. And now I have the Friendly Giant theme in my head.

Ridiculous cutscenes/tutorials, good Unskippable.

Bear in mind, though, that text in the bottom left-hand corner of the screen is partially obscured by the Escapist overlay; I was confused by the "location unknown" joke until I watched it the second time around.

Yeah, we forget about that sometimes.
