The plot thickens and the puzzles cheapen!
Wow… epic, Spoony! You’ve been busy!
So Spoony, tired of those transitions yet? Glad to know that in the future my gym sucks just as bad.
way to go spoony! this is great!
hey spoony, long time fan, first time post…
looks like you’ve been really busy lately with all your reviews, and i’m sure i’m not the only fan that appreciates it!
I appreciated the Bubba Ho-Tep joke, my good sir.
Yes, been waiting soooooo long for this. I love your Ripper vids, Noah.
“Actually they’re not called cartoons, they’re called anime.” Priceless. Good work Spoony!
I wonder if they took the picture of Walken from “The Deer Hunter”, and Photoshopped it to look like an “Emo of the Future”. Great Let’s Play as always Spoon.
XD Lives at stake indead. Great as always
Great continuation of this so called game, Keep riffing the ripper Spoony!
Would you believe I actually got this game because Spoony’s playing it…and enjoy it?
Am I just that sad?
OH GOD THE SUSPENSE!
@ Alan Gain:
Don’t feel bad man, I got SWAT 4 because of Spoony and I love the game to death.
Yeeha, a new piece of epic!
Can’t wait for it to load so I can actually watch it.
Good lord. An Ultima Online reference to Lord British’s death due to a glitch in the game? That’s an obscure reference if ever there was one!
2 Nostalgia Crititc and 1 Nostalgia Chick reference. Getting a little lazy?
Holy Shit! It’s John F Kenedy!
Jny – yeah… this is an affiliated site… go fucking figure.
That’s weird… I rock slider puzzles. Pattern recognition skillz FTW, baby!
Sure are a lot of Nostalgia Critic jokes in this… someone’s a little angry about the web awards thing 9.9
great review as always I love Ripper
Sir I’m right with ya on the slider puzzles thing, those things are truly beyond madness… pure evil. X__X
Wait, wait, wait! Burton and Falconetti invented XBox Live!?
Melvin sure is getting a lot of attention these days ;p
I also thought “Nostalgia Chick” the moment you said it.
Overall great part of a great series! Can hardly wait for more!
I laughed out loud for this one quite a few times. Great Job!
what did he say; you have to wiki grud to grot what it means.. Ha!
beach party cryonics!?
Funny they included Linux terminology in a Windows-only game. Hell, this isn’t even the first time “grep” has popped up in Ripper. The creepy guy from the bar said he’d been “grepping” for a Quentin Model W.A.C. for months (eww). Grep is apparently the Linux “search” program. “Grok” is a Heinlein invention, means “to drink” literally, “to understand, know, and/or fully grasp” abstractly.
Boring mode off, it’s amusing that Detective Walken denied the connection he knew was there all along right at the start of the game. I guess they had to make everybody look like they might be the Ripper, so we can be pleasantly disappointed when it turns out it was only one of them, and not even the same one every time.
Walken as an emo made me lol.
Dis review.. is un-fuckin-believable!
Idk what the first word he said was but the second word he said was “Grokk” from the book A Stranger in a Strangeland. It means to think or understand, but it’ s slightly more complicated then just that, it’s hard to explain without having read the book, wich by all means you should, it’s a very good book
Great Lets Play Spoony the “MCFLY!” line had me in stitches
Great video Spoony! It’s nice to see that gyms will offer public access to club member’s personal information in the future. I guess class action lawsuits will be a thing in the past. Man, what’s up with the NC and NChick jokes. Don’t tell me you’re getting a little testy about the competition.
Why the hell didn’t that webrunner chick just kick Quinlin the hell out? That’s what I would do – I mean, technically the guy committed a breaking and entering so she should’ve told him to get the fuck out!
Fire Farley before his findings in four felonies were finished? What fiends!
Aw Spoony, I’m surprised. Marion feeds you a line like “biggest mistake I’ve ever made in my life”, and no Indy 4 jab? I guess you were trying to avoid the easy joke.
Hm. It was entertaining, but your performance was not that of the “funniest person alive” in this video. Many jokes left an artificial impression on me. It was not bad, I don’t know if I could entertain people, but it wasn’t the relaxed Spoony I know today.
kinda reminds me of FF 8… turns out they all grew up together!
Great video, though not as incredibly awesome as one is used to by now… ;)
I can totally understand why you skipped that slider puzzle. These things suck, especially when there are so many pieces in it…
Had to do one yesterday with like 11 pieces in Black Mirror II… Trial and error rocks. :P
LOL, @ Magnotta during his Flock Of Seagulls phase and Falconetti as Beatnik Nostalgia Critic.
And looking at the flyer puzzle makes me wonder how much of a genius you are Spoony. I would have never fucking guessed how the hell the damn puzzle works!
And what was the point with a big meeting of the Web Runners when all you got to see was Margret Cho with a virtual boy on her head?
Good Vid Spoony, keep it up
And bad news for Margaret cho, that 7th Calvary never arrived.
May her troops never be forgotten
Goldilocks by the throat? What goddamn game was nostaligia chick playing?!
Oh, god… you DID NOT just bust a line from “Bubba Ho-Tep”, did you?!
Poor Ozzie Davis. Great actor, but would do ANYTHING… even cheezy FMV games.
And you killed me with the “Back to the Future” bit, too. “MAKKUFURAII!! READO MY FAXU! YOU FAIYAD!”
Great work, Spoony.
Agreed with a few of the others, not your best, but I get the feeling that Ripper doesn’t write itself as well as Phantasmagoria did.
I watch these half for the Spoony One and half for Wolf,
(I am such a chick :P )
You don’t know how satisfying it was to hear you shout “FUCK SLIDER PUZZLES”.
The Ripper is awesome.
I love the fake games mentioned President Satan, Virtual Twister (real Twister is so… much fun in real life), Hip hop Mafia, and Streptococcus.
I hate Slider puzzles. For me this was the funniest Ripper yet.
I thought Nostalgia Chick at first too, so I see why you said it, you reference everything else why not the TWGTG partners, don’t know what some peoples problem with them are.
You don’t look like walken you do look like the villian from quantum of solace a bit though.
keep up the good work.
Bush administration jokes are still funny?
I wonder if people were still joking about Grant during the Hayes administration.
I wonder if there was any relevance to the web runners using former British Prime Ministers as handles? Wonder if anyone else besides me was sad enough to notice…
…wait. Falconetti also goes by the name Falcon Eddie. So all arguments about the sementics of his names are invalid because its BOTH? Jesus christ game.
Also, to the people wondering what game Nostalga Chick is playing, she said it was General Custors something or other. Assuming there was no indians named Goldilocks, she was playing on the native side, and was strangling one of them. Guess Nostalga Chick does need to choke a bitch.
Lol, young Vince Magnotta looks like Christopher Lambert auditioning for Gay Mad Max, The Musical!!1 ^^
I’m glad to know I’m not the only one who hates slider puzzles. I have never understood what I should do in them to get them right. Usually when I try to solve one, after half an hour I give up and play something that doesn’t have them.
Great and funny once again Spoony.
@LaZodiac: The “Goldilocks” thing was probably referring to Custer himself. He was blond, and he was referred to as “Long Hair” by the indians he dealt with.
Oh man, as an anime fan you have no idea how hard I laughed at that “they’re not called cartoons!” joke. I can’t count the number of heated debates I’ve seen on forums over the semantics of cartoons, animation, and anime. I mean, it all comes down to how you choose to define the terms, but no, who needs to agree on definitions when you can just get pissed and flame each other? Much appreciated jab there, my friend. :)
I’m really loving these videos. I’m getting this odd feeling that a prequel with the lives of the Webrunners would have been a hundred times more interesting than this game. Sex, lies, betrayal, and President Satan! Who could ask for more?
I didn’t know Alex Roivas was a Web Runner!
That one Web Runner looks a little like Rosie O’Donnell…well that is to say if Rosie O’Donnell had all of her ugly removed.
Damn why can’t I find that clip on youtube?
“First question, which one are you, Alliance of Horde?”
That made me laugh so hard.
so the plot thickens, didn’t even know you had a plot.
which Lord British the game persona or the actual guy behind the crappy Ultima game??? Oh, well either way is good i guess. I honestly can’t see why those games are some of your favorites and yet you had this huge huge rant on FF8, honestly I’d choose FF8 over Ultima Exodus or Ultima 4 any day.
Awesome vid Spoony
This story would be more interesting if Magnotti was actually in love with Falconetti. It would add new depths to the falsified charges, the inter-personal tension, and their hyper-masculinity.
Ok, ok, it would lend itself to some more jokes as well.
hey, this is part 2 act 2? wheres part 1?
Now i hope Nostalgia Critic see this video and does a video with jokes about spoony being in it , so the Nostalgia Critic can get pay back
“…SO FUCK YOUR CARTOONS!” “actually there not called cartoons…there called anime….’ “SHUT UP!”
Realizing you married the wrong person: 5 min
Filing the divorce papers: 6 months
Trying to forget: 15 years
Not being around Falconetti: Priceless
Renee Stein looks just like Alex from Eternal Darkness.
When he took her virtual reality glases off that one girl really looked exactly like the nostalgia chick! I thought she looked like her way before you said anything spoony.
I love your Ripper episodes
I just looked up Ripper on Wikipedia and noticed the spelling of the main characters surname changes like every sentence on there.
Notice that none of the Web-Runners actually play the same games.
Scratch that. I didn’t realize they were saying “Games AUTHORED.”
I have to say the Runners have a fucking amazing acumen for game development if each one can take credit for a game at the rate of about one a year and the entire group as a whole taking credit for at least 3 a year. Either there were 100 people in the group or in the future the iPhone app is the only form of gaming.
Another great ep, Noah. Really love your rapid-fire ability to keep the jokes coming.
“Shazam! Now I’m on the phone!” LOL, awesome stuff.
That was pretty good, but I guess you’re under a lot of stress lately; you don’t seem as relaxed as usual. I LOVED the Bubba Ho-Tep reference, and yes, fuck slider puzzles.
(At 19:30) MAKE IT STOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOP!!!! MAKE THE USELESS INFORMATION STOOOOOOP!!!!
wow Dr Burton was a hot goth chick
YES Ultima Online reference kickass Spoony.
I could barely tolerate the second part of this one, with the long lists of random titles and other bullshit, Not your fault though Spoony, Hopefully the next part will be more interesting
Another great installment. Never a disappointment. So many quotable stuff from this one too.
It sounded like the computer kept attributing the username “Gay dolphin” to everyone…
And to think I was there for both Lord British and Molten Core. Sigh.
Actually, if you played the game yourself and not just watching someone else doing it, this sequence is one of the greatest points in the whole game, since many information and formerly unknown connections are revreiled.
Bubba Ho-Tep reference? You are a hero sir.
That’s what I was getting out of it as well. In fact I’m pretty sure we encountered one of the other runners before…in a manner of speaking, but I’m not going to give away that in case it’s still spoiler-ish.
am i the only one that noticed the Webb Morgan on the pink paper?
18:43 – OH MY GOD!!! Its Noah Antwiler! From the future!
“Is Jack Quinlain have to choke a bitch” – just killed me…
@9:21 – What, no Smiths joke? Too easy?
spoony love your vids. hope to get your autograph someday.
Girlfriend in a coma??? Smiths…come on! XD
I wonder Magnotta actually thought of his old school look?
Oh I know… It’s un-fucking believable.
Good show my good man….
I don’t know if you’ve noticed this Spoony, but this girl you think is super hot looks somewhat like Quistis from FF8…
Slider puzzles are really easy, apart from the last two pieces which always make you want to kill yourself.
Magnotta joined the Data Fascists? What the hell does that mean?
I’m amazed you didn’t comment on the skin tight pants that Dr. Burton was wearing when power walking.
Haven’t heard from the ripper for quite a while, did he get shy? ._.
When will we see him again? D:
I am in heaven Spoony! I love the Ripper reviews! I love feasting on the Walkeny goodness.
Holy shit… that Renee chick looks a hell of a lot like Alex Roivas.
Spoony was that Victorian England running course possibly a hint or the most obvious red herring in history. THE INTRIGUE! THE SUSPENSE! RIPPER!

Oh god the music
19:55Computer; “Raine Stine, two year member…”
Spoony; “Ohh, I got a two foot member right now! Damn shes hot!”
I know it has been awhile but watch the people on the treadmill while he is making fun of the VR run the Dr does! Cop out! They run forwards..and then THEY RUN BACKWARDS!
Indeed this is getting intense! lol
Nostalgia Chick XD
It means he joined the police.
We care about our history, maaaan! Like, we would be nothing without it, maaaan! All I could think about after that.
… also, in Phantasmagoria 2, we found a Gay version of you… then in this game we found both the Nostalgia Critic AND Chick! … what next, will we find Linkara’s evil twin? ._.; … not that that isn’t cool, though. :P
Tramps like us, baby we were Born to Run. Great taste in music Spoony
Is she exercising in leather pants? o_O
NC should totally do a sketch with him as a beat poet.
Did i hear “whore busters?” at the last guy?
LOL. Did anyone else here that Claire was a member of the HIP HOP MAFIA!?!?
Did that computer bitch say BloodNet 3000? ROFL Yeah.. BloodNet’s an interesting game.. and by interesting, I mean “I have no idea what I’m doing when I play this game” :D
Am I the only one who realized that Web Runner that they showed on the big screen last was the lady who got killed at the beginning of the game, and that the computer said her handle was Salisbury, and that was also what was written on the mug at the beginning of the game that you had to put back together?????
well I thought I had seen some cheep effects in games, but then I saw the woman on the treadmill on the right walk forward a few steps then walk backward a few steps….
What is it with this dude and cute black girls?
I swear, almost this entire cast has been on Law & Order at least once…
Can anybody explain the “replaced my brain with a bag of sand” joke Spoony keeps making about Quinlan’s boss? I assume it’s something to do with a role the actor played, but I don’t really know anything about him.
It’s from Bubba Ho-Tep. Ossie Davis, who plays Quinlan’s boss also played JFK in that movie. Where he claims the CIA “dyed” him black and stuck him in the same nursing home as the real Elvis, as played by Bruce Campbell. You should check it out. It’s an awesome movie. :)
