Before the camera pulled out for the still picture I thought it was going to be another of those intros like Zoids that used all still pictures of concept art. I was thinking to myself "What gives? I thought this was a big budget next-gen type game." Some great jokes here though - my favorite being Paul's response to "We need to hit the cartel as hard as we can." "Shouldn't we use guns or something?"

Ugh. I've seen snails that move faster than that cutscene! Does it get any better? Even a teeny tiny bit?

I survived spaMEGAdon and all I got was this lousy signature joke.

Yay! Glad you got it.

I mean, he's called Eddie Guerra... It must be intentional.

I will admit to having to do a double take when I heard the comment. The voices in the game weren't the easiest to understand with that weird echo effect they were using.

Yeah. I mean, that was intentional right? Someone on the sound team thought the dialogue needed that.

It probably wasn't a sound team member but someone higher up. Someone who doesn't understand or care that echo makes it harder to hear what a person is saying. :P
