Vodpod videos no longer available.

Gaming Today recently highlighted a video series from the excellent video gaming site The Escapist called Unskippable. In it, two guys watch video game trailers and cut-scenes and attempt to provide witty commentary over it. It’s essentially Rifftrax Presents for the gamer crowd. And judging from the few episodes I watched, it has the same hit-or-miss ratio as a Mike-, Bill-, or Kevin-less Rifftrax Presents episode.

Of course, that isn’t to say it’s bad. It’s just not amazing. The clip I embedded above has them taking on a trio of trailers. The first and third are actually pretty funny and reasonably smart. Definitely worth checking out, if your hunger for riffs is insatiable.

  1. I love Unskippable! It is kinda hit and miss but it’s definitely one of the better amateur riffs out there. Also apparently Bill knows of them, he mentions them in an interview with Game Chat (http://www.mst3kinfo.com/?p=3200) so that’s pretty cool.

  2. Unskippable is pretty good stuff, as you say they get a reasonable hit-to-miss ration. You can see their archive here – but if you really want real hilarious game ripping goods then try Zero Punctuation, also at The Escapist, unbelievably funny and savage reviews.
