Also, Guys might want to watch Band of Brothers sometime: Market Garden WAS pretty brutal. Thanks a bunch Montgomery!
he was overrated as a general. he got lucky at el-alamein, as rommel had barely any reinforcements, due to the invasion of russia
he wasnt bad, but here in england he is very highly regarded
he messed up in holland, but any mission could have messed up anywhere. and theoretically, had it worked, the war would have been a year shorter. but if you go into "if it had worked..." we could be here for hours. best to just leave the past where it is
Let me just say

What the hell was going on in that cutscene? I saw someone ready to jump out of a plane, about 4 people dying and someone finding a silver gun and I still don't know anyone's name. That was weird.
It's basically a summary of the previous two games.
Not a very good summery because I didn't understand any of it. Well except that it was WWII (again), shit was being blown up, and some guys were passing a silver gun around. And I was able to figure out The Prestige and it jumped around just about as much.

Hooray for Russel! Everybody loves Russel.
On a side note, did anyone else notice the 'R' on that one guy's helmet? I think he's secretly working for Team Rocket.

Holy shit; the guy who's screaming about screaming is the same actor from Haze.

And good grief, this game looks ugly. Its as if each soldier needed to be hit with the ugly-stick before shipping out.

If that cutscene was supposed to explain ANYTHING about the game, it failed...I don't even know what happened...Funny though

World War II has been played longer than it was actually fought and I think it is time to let it end.

My sister bought me this game and Halo Wars for Christmas.

She is no longer allowed to buy me games I have not directly specified that I want.

I have problems following some Unskippable episodes because I find myself trying to understand what's going on in the cutscene. I had no problem here, because this cutscene was incomprehensible.

Nice delivery on, "Maybe you should put on the goggles that are on your helmet."

Good to hear I was not the only one thinking there was something wrong with their mics.

Aside from that, good episode.

Wait, Brothers in Arms is about the same battle that Watership Down was based on? Fuck. Now I might actually have to play it.

You've never heard of Operation Market Garden?

Hmm... I thought that was one of the more famous ones...
Probably more in Britain than in the States, since it was an operation involving British and Polish soldiers, but not US ones.

Graham sounded worryingly pleased at the idea of a secret love affair in the squad...

If you're going to jump out of an airplane in it, shouldn't your helmet have a chin strap or some means of staying on your head so it doesn't fly off in the first three seconds of drop?

Also found myself thinking during the "yelling in the smoke" scene- given the orders you guys were given, aren't you about to be mowed down by friendly fire? Well, at least you're not yelling in German, I guess...

somewhere over normandy is about as specific as you can get with the airborne battalions. Read up on your history you find that almost no one was where they were supposed to be mostly cause no one knew where they were. also i don't know, spoofing a world war 2 game especially the airborne guys just seems in bad taste to me.

dunno seems a rare miss to me...

Funny episode and finally something from Russel again. Haven't heard anything from that guy in a long time.

The video material was really broken up and it was hard to follow. Of course you could blame that on Gearbox. I will have to "blame" Paul and Graham for being really funny this week.

Seriously, who cares about this stuff in a WWII fps? Do we really need a big incomprehensible story with characters we don't care about when we aren't shooting at Nazis?

Graham's "mmmm" at the end really made it for me. XD

This looks like a really strange movie to start a game with...

Just what I was thinking. But in G&P's defense that cutscene alone was lame beyond belief. I don't think the game really did justice to what we did over there. Though that may not have been its point. Don't know, not gonna get the game to find out.
