Okay, I’m not going to link to these guys each and every time they put one up, but this one got some laughs out of me:

This is the last time I’ll just repost Unskippable. Unless there is another one where I just can’t resist. Or if I forget I made that promise. Or I can’t think of anything else to post. Or if I just feel like it.

    I’m still chuckling over
    NPC: “What was that?!”
    all, in unison: “An explosion.”

  2. Shinjin says:

    The last of these I didn’t care much for, but this one I liked.

    “Wait a minute. Where did I leave the moon…”

  3. SolkaTruesilver says:


    In video games, everybody really has feet of steel. Not to forget the legs..

  4. Factoid says:

    “Only in anime can someone be backlit…at night”

    That’s where I lost it.

  5. Thirith says:

    I’d say this is definitely the best since that Lost Planet one that got them the gig. The last two were very hit and miss.

  6. vdeogmer says:

    That’s funny, I actually didn’t care for this one as much as the other three. It still had its moments, but it didn’t leave me absolutely overcome with laughter. Just looking forward to the next one!

  7. Will says:

    I hope they get around to the Xenosaga intro cinematic, but I don’t think they’d have the endurance.

  8. nilus says:

    I have found them all funny in verying degrees. I think the first one(not the preview one) was my favorite. But this one was also pretty funny. I hope these guys keep up the good work

  9. Eric says:

    The only time I laughed: “I’ll get you next time Gadget.”

  10. Wil K. says:

    Still amazing. This is how I’ll be getting my weekly MST3K fix for a good long while, I hope.

  11. Zukhramm says:

    I found this really boring… for the first 30 seconds. I’ll have to watch the other ones now.

    At least you’re consistent ;).

  13. Galen says:

    Lol, that was pretty funny. Sort of. Ah well it was worth 7 minutes of my life at least. I need to go find more escapist videos now…

  14. vdgmprgrmr says:

    Unskippable is totally good enough to warrant reposting.

    (For a while, after too long it gets repetitive, but so far, I’d say you’re fine.)

  15. John Darque says:

    i lawled when he said “I’ll get you next time Gadget!”

  16. Neil Polenske says:

    The Dead Rising one was as bad as the previous Eternal Sonata was awesome. This lands in the middle, but definitely closer to ES than DR. And yeah, the ‘Dr. Claw’ got me hurtin too!

  17. Kevin says:

    “Why did I take the stairs?”


    Okay, back to brooding now.

  18. Josh says:

    “This looks like a fun game to play. Maybe we could do that… sometime.”

    FFVII’s unskippable angst-scenes dropped that game from 9 to 8/10 for me. Most annoying. I believe I merely played it through three times as a result.

  19. Harvey says:

    Personally, I say NEVER hesitate to repost Unskippable, or anything else you think is good. Because you never know who might stumble by here – you get new and random-Google-search readers every day. If they stop here looking for something else, they might stumble upon your Unskippable post and have their day made just a little bit better.

    ALWAYS post things that make you happy.

  20. K says:

    The original English voice-over is a disaster, I’m happy they spoke over most of it. It annoyed me to no end in FFX, and I have not played any FF title with voices since then for that reason. Why can’t we chose voices from the Japanese original and subtitle them? Like with ALL DVDs?

  21. Ravens_cry says:

    Well, not everyone likes subtitles. I do, because I love the sound of languages,the ebb and flow of other tongues, but other people may find them distracting from the action on screen.

  22. ryanlb says:

    Yes, I didn’t care for the last two either, but this one was quite funny.

  23. Grudgeal says:


    Shamus, I don’t know how much you know about the Let’s Play phenomenon, but seeing this movie reminds me that there’s a Let’s Play in progress being made about Dirge of Cerberus right now; I think it’s still on the SomethingAwful forums if you sniff around the first two pages. Anyway, it has every last one of the game’s movies in horrible, horrible detail, complete with sarcastic comments by the play-ee who clearly isn’t enjoying the sensation.

    Just thought I’d mention it.

  24. Raine says:

    Thats Paul and Gram’s site. Vary funny stuff!
    try it

  25. Volatar says:

    I do love this stuff. This was the best one so far in my opinion.

    “Only in anime can someone be backlit…at night”

    That had me rolling.
