What? Why are you calling me? I don’t care that there’s a hostage situation at the Quik-Stop. I’m not even supposed to be here today!
Spoony, you rule so much for doing these SWAT videos.
A moment ago, I was like “damn, I’m bored… Let’s check out Spoony’s site…” and then I found these videos and I’m not bored anymore, yay.
Wow, you are posting these quick, i figured you would just be doing these once a week, but already there are three of them in less than 30 minutes, not that i am complaining.
You should just use the shotgun with the beanbags, you can go through the entire mission by just shooting them twice in the chest and handcuffing them.
Oooh, lovely Sam & Max reference.
From the next mission on, I have to say frustration takes a front seat.
Not to be a hardass or anything but you’re not really playing all that efficiently. You’re not using your squad to clear rooms and you’re not using the wand to check rooms and using flash bangs. Course If you played right you it would have as much comedic value. :D
Bah! typo of above post, I meant it wouldn’t have as much comedic value. I fail
Best LP update ever? I have to say, yes!
Also, at the end anyone notice that Noah clicked “restart mission”?
Spoony, dude, I love your stuff, but don’t make me listen to all of “bad boys” in every video. It kills me, and then I have to wait and let it preload for a while to skip it because blip won’t let me skip ahead.
I hope there’s more of SWAT 4 later on tonight. And yes, Spoony taken by surprise in a hostile environment is always comedy gold.
I like this series of videos. I hope you keep on it.
I remember playing the demo for SWAT 3 when it released. The game was really picky about scoring . . .
Is it just me, or does the guy narrating the mission briefing kind of sound like George Clooney?
After each video, I’m a tad happier that Spoony does video reviews, INSTEAD of being a Swat officer.
Great stuff, Spoony.
Keep up the good work.
Lots of Clerks jokes, Spoony, but then again every time you cracked one I had already said it out loud to myself.
Cant wait for part 4.
Just so you know the blood in the toilet was an old guy that found out he had prostate cancer. He had blood in his urine.
It would’ve also been interesting if you gave a funny one-liner after shooting that guy dead in front of the cleaners (in the beginning). I mean he’s already at the wash maybe he can get those blood stains out.
This series is hilarious. I like that you’ve moved out of survival-only games into ones where you can really show some personality through gameplay.
I love the mission objectives at the end: Bring order to chaos…:)
MOAR! No, but sirously that was the most awesome spoony stuff until now. Please Sir, can we have some more? :-D
“Steal me a Dr. Pepper and a Slim Jim, good- OWWWWWW OW OW!” =D
“It’s cold in here… like Hoth Cold. Let’s just make sure, that no matter WHAT we do, we never get locked in the freezer again”
*Sigh* Clerks: The Animated Series, RIP.
How many missions are in this thing? Just keep cranking them out if you can”
Wow, SWAT 4? I loved that game back in the day. Nice to see you playing it Noah! The commentary and end of mission briefings are hilarious!
Good luck on the next missions, you’ll need it. Although it doesn’t really get hard until the A-Bomb….
Oh, and just so you know, sniper kills are ALWAYS marked as authorized use of force, no matter what. The unauthorized use of force was the guy who charged in after you shot the woman. (you can only shoot if they shoot or point at you, a team member, or a hostage.)
Good job spoony. I am digging this series also love the various clerks reference.
This is great. Come home after school to see 3 new videos! Even when afflicted with illness, the Spoony Experiment trudges forward! Kudos, sir!
great videogame stuff. I love these
I have complete confidence in Noah’s policing abilities.
“Oh, I do have a flashlight on my gun!”
I’m really liking this LP Spoony. Not seen any of the SWAT games in action before. Looking forward to seeing the next episode :)
I think i’m one of the only people that got the ” Now,Whatever we do we will never get locked in the freezer again.” thing….Anyway! I love the LP and i hope to see some more!
IF YOU DON’T UNDERSTAND THE FREEZER JOKE ITS FROM CLERKS ( the cartoon series )
Haha, the 9/11 of 7-11. But those were some heavily armed crackheads…keep up the Let’s Plays, maybe you’ll do Rainbow Six next?
lol I loved the clerks animated series reference, I didn’t realize that anybody had seen it
Now I’m thinking I’d like to see an LP of FBI Hostage Rescue, though you probably wouldn’t get past the first stage. XD
How on earth do crackheads with the ambition of robbing 7-11′s get AK’s?
Awesome LPs, keep it up. If you enjoy SWAT, then maybe check up on Rainbow Six?
“It’s Hoth cold”
Awesome Clerks cartoon reference! I didn’t think anyone else watched that thing. Also, why are we walking like this?
Damn you Jim Walls and your obsession with procedure!!! Where’s Sonny Bonds when you need him?
Really good stuff spoony, I laughed my ass off :P
Just use the space key to give them quick orders. The space key is not only used for the “fall in” command. Watch bottom right corner and see the quick command change in different circumstances.
Like when you want to cuff someone, just point and press the space key. Or when you want to breach a door, etc. The game is much less tedious this way.
Dude, loved the Clerks references. Brilliant.
Hah, sucks to be USian, when any idiot next door can legally get an AK, what a dumb country.
Hey, guys, when is the next school shooting gonna start ? I dont wanna miss my weekly good show.
Spoony’s so awesome. Even while sick with a miserable cold, with no script prepared, he still manages to provide hilarious game commentary. I could watch dozens of these Swat 4 videos.
If i recall, you can access a small cam in the upper right or left corner to track your teams. (pg dn, home, end – that neighborhood of buttons) I remember playing SWAT 4 co-op and keeping track of my friend, making sure he was actually covering me.
Best gun for the early missions would be the pepper gun, as you can pepper anybody without penalty. Kind of removes the challenge though – until you run into the hockey mask guys.
Crackheads armed with AK-47′s? These dudes got some serious connections :D
Oh man, the fourth mission. (Some of it in the intro video) Big building, lots of guys with guns willing to shoot, lots of civilians, two floors, has it all.
Hahahahaha nice Clerks reference
Funny stuff. Can’t wait to see more…
Was he even supposed to be there?
Yes! You finally got to use the sniper!
Never thought I’d hear a Clerks: Animated Series reference these days. I still think you got hosed with that deduction – bitch had a gun after all.
Well played, Spoony… well played. Hope you’re able to get through the next one without blowing a gasket.
None of the bliptv videos are working for me for some reason, they were fine a few days ago, but now ive come on and they have just stopped working. Anyone have any ideas?
Wow those guys were just ridiculous. I would be pissed if you were right and they did mark off more than one penalty for unauthorized use of deadly force. The guys shot directly at you! I’m actually debating if the sniper kill was the penalty shot or the guy you shot in the knee on reflex. I’m leaning towards the knee shot since he didn’t pose more of a threat than the guy with the AK. I’ve played this game a few years ago and I can tell ya that you play so much differently. I’m sure your strategy was way better because you could think faster than some computer but I was almost entirely computer dependent. I wouldn’t go through a door without my team clearing it first. I guess that makes me somewhat of a coward but I thought it was the easiest way to survive so. I didn’t even know about the snipers! Taking shots with them must be pretty exciting!
Some good laughs in this one. Nicely done.
You got 1 “unauthorised use of deadly force” for shooting the guy in the white T-shirt who gave up. Good cop my ass…..lol. Remember, snipers are absolved from the rules. You can snipe as many people as you want with no consequences. It’s their God-given right to shoot people on sight. However, only you and shoot people if they squeeze off a shot at your head, even more so when they have a pump-action shotgun. There is no single word to describe how brutal and unforgiving this game is. But if I had to choose, “satanic” would come close.
Actually the guy in the white shirt who “gave up” was an active, hostile target. YouTube’s video encoding makes it a little hard to see, but it’s actually very common for perps in SWAT 4 to initially throw their hands in the air, fake a surrender, and then spin around and fire.
In that room, there was a guy aiming at a hostage, and the guy in white faked his surrender. I took out the guy holding the hostage at gunpoint, the white-shirt fired at me, and I gunned him down. Clean shoot.
I can’t get over how addictive these are. I thought the SWAT 4 thing was a one shot deal and I loved the first one. Glad to see you are continuing. These are awesome!
I would love Spoony to be the policeman that saves me from a hostage thing… I can imagine him just shooting everyone in the face who is holding a gun then yelling, “It was a clean shot!”. Then we go off to the sunset together… wait what? You need to use one of your charges…. to blow a door open…. I think explosions would make people surrender….
This game reminds me of the older Rainbow Six games where you had to command like a 6 man squad an do these sorts of things. I tried the newer Rainbow Six Vegas 2 game though an its nothing like that anymore its more of a shooter. Like Mass Effect only in the present day lol. Anyway I think spoony should be using his squad to do all the dirty work. When I played these games that’s how I would do it. Just faster an safer.
The hostility counter i bullshit. They basically have to be aiming at you long enough for you get a look at the bullet down-barrel. But when in doubt, just let your team members pop them. Apparently they know instinctively when a perp is thinking a violent thought (very handy when working as a S.W.A.T. officer). The white t-shirt monkey was the one. Just wait till you play the Stetchkov Syndicate Xpansion. They surrender, drop their weapon, and when you turn around to yell at somebody else, they draw their back-up weapon and shoot you in the back of the head.
You get hit by “unauthorized use of deadly force” when you shoot someone without demanding that they drop their weapon first. It was the guy who popped up right after the woman shot you that caused you to take that penalty, if I remember the game right.
I failed that mission like 10 times because the main suspect, the women IIRC, always was hiding somewhere with her Shotgun and took me down from behind! That fucking bitch!
What was that handgun the last suspect had? It looked like a large automatic (inb4 any silly spamming of “DEAGLE”).
AKs tend to be cheap, since it was designed to be a mass-produced weapon issued to poorly-trained conscripts during the Great Patriotic War. So it’s not entirely unlikely that some drug addict managed to get his hands on one. The design (makes it easy and cheap to manufacture than other, more modern firearms (which happens to be why it’s easier to operate and maintain, too). Accuracy, reliability and durability, however, often depend upon the tolerances/clearances, the materials used in construction, and the ammunition. That weapon was most likely procured from the black market. Shipped from which third-world hellhole? That’s anybody’s guess.
Now, if it was a crackhead armed with a firearm of HK manufacture (G36, MP5, UMP,…or even a G3) …THEN I’d be somewhat startled and freaked. For various reasons. Even moreso if it were a P90 or a similar Personal Defense Weapon. A Steyr AUG would be downright outlandish (>3000 USD per unit? Ouch!). Then again…there’s allegedly a cheaper American-made clone…
I love your videos and reviews. I look forward to seeing more! Sorry if I sound pretentious. I just enjoy firearms…too bad we Americans probably won’t have our 2nd Amendment rights for too much longer…
Oh dear, I geeked out so much as the Clerks animated series reff XD
Love the reviews, they’re so easy to watch and laugh at!
I love the website and I played SWAT 4 but played under my own rules that no-one can get hurt and I can only move on if I get 100% pass rate everytime. Was so hard playing like that.
I really want to make a good website and blog like this one, connected to you tube video’s. Any idea’s or tips?
“AAAAAHHH, SODA MONSTER!!!”
“The weeds of crime bear bitter fruit, you old hag!!”
Hahaha, awesome Clerks. reference, Spoony!
Not to self do not interupt armed robbers during fun time in the break room. It makes them testy and trigger happy
“Ak-47 found at the scene was later seen in 5 different insurgencies.”
First of all – great review Spoony! MOAR! ;)
As for SWAT 4 – for me it’s a great game. Post raven shield&Athena sword R6 games are too arcade for me – swat 4 was totally opposite to the R6 lockdown at this time (AFIAR the game has this “new breathtaking” system which allow you to renew your HP just for standind!). In fact, I hate almost all new shooters – who came with the idea that life will increase if you stand still for a while? It’s stupid and childish. Getting a medic kit is kinda old, but you can compromise with a medic (a person) or food etc.. (like in GTA series). And for some games (swat4, r6) been able to restore your life is just WRONG.
And if you want something really hard go for ARMA – nothing can’t beat that grunt feelling this game have :).
Wow thanks, Spoony! I didn’t even KNOW you could shoot with the sniper. I just thought it was there so you could look at it for the lolz. You probably noticed this too, about how your SWAT character is pretty slow running, and even worse when damaged. If your legs are shot, your basically playing at a snail’s pace, which is realistic, but not very fun.
If you decide to do any more reviews of further missions, you’ll probably hate the disco level. If you do continue the SWAT reviews, please at least do my favorite: the bank level. It’s got so many hostages and bankrobbers that it’s a freakin’ fiesta.
I can’t wait to see the Cult Mission and the Bank Mission (Or was it a big jeweller…hm that with the armored tough guys). The last one mentioned made me stop playing this game because I kept dying constantly. The cult mission was the most intense, in my opinion. With the graves and stuff in the base ment. I think it was the fifth mission so hopefully I don’t have to wait so long. Awesome site Spoony.
It’s like Hoth cold in that freezer. Ya know if it were a TV show it would just turn into another clip show.
Lmao. Clerks references. Knew as soon as I heard the Hoth joke.
when I played this mission i went in with a paintball gun and brought em all back alive, i remember i had like 3 guys hold up in one of the bathrooms. xD anyways great video as always
Hey Spooney you know what you said made no sense whats so ever
“He’s limping because i shot him in the arm”
it would make sense if shot him in the leg to make him limp around.
NO, really?! Wow, you’re smart, emran! It’s not as if he said it specifically to point out the absurdity of it or anything, clearly he honestly believed a person getting shot in the arm is valid cause for them to limp. Thanks, emran, for enlightening us all!
Being shot in the shoulder made Dr. Watson limp you know.
she is a psycho bitch, if you get her down and arrest her she start screaming at the top of her lungs all kinds of swears and stuff, after i got her down i hit her with pepper spray, a tazer, a sting, CS,AND a flashbang xD
Ummm….can’t you like….ask for authorization to use deadly force?
This has been bugging me for a long time. WHY do all of Spoony’s men look like black guys with Hitler mustaches?
Man. I’ve been trying this mission probably ten times, trying to get a perfect score. Just now I got 99 (I missed a gun…) and gave up.
funny “clerks” hint at the end – I hope Dante’s alright!
@Trocadero: I made the 100 points, it’s rather easy once you’re familiar with the controls.
And remember: safety first!
spoony will you be my friend?
HA! I really want to play this game.
“You lost sight of him since you shoot him in the back of the neck, ding-bat!”“Who dropped a bloody deuce?”“This is my own personal bloody christmas”“The guy had an AK47. I regret nothing”
Dude, I live in Maryland and in Baltimore someone offered to sell me an AK-47, 3 clips and a bayonet, offered to sell it to me for $300, no joke
Dude, I live in Maryland and in Baltimore someone offered to sell me an AK-47, 3 clips and a bayonet, offered to sell it to me for $300, no joke
Odd, I didn’t realize AK-47s took clips. Are you sure it wasn’t an SKS?
Yeah, no, I’m being sarcastic. Magazines. Clips. They’re different things. Use the right word.
I’m sure he’s very sorry he’s not as well versed in illegal firearm terminology as you. Most of us don’t sit around and jerk off to issues of Guns and Ammo so you’ll have to forgive a lack of knowledge.
Surprizingly SWAT 3 was in many ways superior. I used to play that game all the time, I enjoyed it because it did something different in FPS genre and the term tactical shooter was on it’s way. It was so satisfing to check out the room, come in from every door and clear the room perfectly. And the only way to use deadly force is to fire back and don’t start shooting.
Both a clerks reference and a Clerks Cartoon reference. Fuck yes. Love it
6:32 … … …Is he de-Is he freak-Is he-*stammers incoherently/angrily*…Well yes, Spoony, he IS dead. This perp is no more. He’s expired. He’s gone to meet his maker. He’s off the twig! He’s kicked the bucket! He’s fraking snuffed it! He’s shuffled off this mortal coil, run down the curtain and joined the fraking choir invisible! THIS…IS AN EX-PERP!
…Sorry, always wanted to do that. lol
Loved the Clerks reference right at the end there!
Never saw the cartoon, I add.
“The 9-11 at 7-11″ :)
So I guess the point of the game is to wonder through and pretty much tase everybody? Yeah, because that’s what real police do.
I’m not sure, but I think the ending captions where meant as a commentary on the unreasonable expectations some people put on police officers (as are the stiff penalties for lethal force in the game itself) I might be wrong, but that’s what I think.
Loved the Clerks reverences, hilarious as always Spoony.
This is what would have happened if the alternate ending to ‘Clerks’ had just kept going.
Bunch’a savages in this town.
Shift your way an inch to the left. LEFT!
I love the old Spoony. Hopefully he stops dicking around and feeling sorry for himself and starts releasing more videos soon!
I totally agree. I don’t know if he’s back working but I hope he comes back to form soon. Too much of this Counter Monkey bullshit and no reviews.
Counter Monkey bullshit?
Fuck you dude, CM’s awesome.
I love the Clerks references in this. <3
We really need more of these.. REALLY.
This was the GOLDEN age of The Spoony Experiment.
Huh… Maybe I am used to our own vanilla Hungarian police force, but… I don’t recall that police have to handcuff EVERYONE at a scene of crime. Especially the OBVIOUS hostages. This game is really odd. “Oh thank you officer for saving me from those crackheads… hey, why are you putting handcuffs on me?!?” :D
It’s a safety precaution, you don’t always know who is dangerous and who isn’t, plus securing the civilians means they can’t suddenly try and get up and end up running into gun fire or become hostages again. The bad guys in these games are sometimes a bit more obvious but if you’ve got a SWAT unit going into a location where people were drinking and it got out of hand, you have no way of knowing who’s ready to just throw down even if they appear compliant.
