  1. Marty says:

    This is the funniest freakin’ thing I’ve seen in weeks.

  2. MintSkittle says:

    Amazing how a fan-made video can spark renewed interest in a Windows game. I’m gonna go play a few rounds.

  3. AngiePen says:

    Oh, ROFL! That was great! :D


  4. Marmot says:

    Har! I laughed a lot at this one – as Mint said, I think I’m gonna go play a few rounds too :)

  5. Lynx says:

    Saw this a few days earlier. It is quite funny (the yellow-faced man in the clip represent the smiley at the top of the minesweeper panel, BTW, for those who are wondering).

    I’m just wondering if similar movies can be done for, say Solitaire, or Hearts…

  6. Eric the vengeful says:

    They took minesweeper and combined it with a terrible kevin costner movie called “the Gaurdian”. Anything that has to do kevin costner is not funny, and brings down the comedy level to -30. I found a video of people doing punch out from nintendo you should check out their troupe’s name is “Team Adventure” I believe, anyhoo the video was funny.

  7. Eric the vengeful says:

    And the yellow man is tim from the gay shows “tim and erics awesome show” and “tom goes to the mayor” which are currently on adult swim on sunday nights.

  8. Althanis says:

    When I click it, nothing ever happens. boo-hoo!

  9. Qujoe says:

    Yeah, I can’t get this to work either and I can’t find any site that isn’t embedding the CollegeHumor version. Must be really popular right now for some reason…


  10. Gary's Friend Mike's Friend Jim says:

    It’s not being directed by Uwe Boll, is it?

  11. Zukhramm says:


    Haha! It’s second only to the Postal movie.

  12. xbolt says:

    Epic! :D

    Not the dreaded eight…

  13. Phlux says:

    Yeah, when you get the 8, you might as well just randomly pick some other new starting spot and hope that you can come into it from another angle.

  14. Skeeve the Impossible says:

    that was fantastic

  15. Lurker says:

    I think Seamus is tipping his hand – Next up after DMoTR finishes: Minesweeper, the campaign!

    “8?! I hate this campaign…”

  16. Lurker says:

    Actually, it’s Shamus that’s tipping his hand.

    So eager to make a clever comment that I forgot to double check the spelling of important words, like the name of the person running the blog. I’ll go crawl back under this here rock, now…

  17. Vegedus says:

    OMG, so brilliant!

    “Why are you here, soldier?!”
    “I’m here because I’m bored!”
    “Don’t you ever forget that.”

  18. Mordaedil says:

    Can’t wait for the game. I wonder if it’ll be ported to the consoles, like Wii and PS3.

  19. Browncoat says:

    That clock will keep ticking until it reaches 999.
    What happens then?
    Nothing. But you suck.


  20. ArchU says:

    lmfao. Thanks, Shamus, it made my morning XD

  21. Dave says:

    It’s never the first one..

  22. Zaxares says:

    Pure. Awesome.

    I’m almost tempted to play Minesweeper. Almost.

  23. bruce says:

    Excellent. Took a look at Streetfighter – The Later Years on their website. It’s well worth a look too, thought there’s only 3 episodes so far.

  24. Namfoodle says:

    Gotta say, this is brilliant. Man, things sure have changed. When I was in college, film students were useless pretentious bastards – I recall one guy sued another guy because he didn’t like the way he directed his script.

    @Mordaedil: Minesweeper for the Wii would be great, no joke! Get to it with your virtual shovel, soldier!

  25. rjA0zcOQ96 says:

    As an avid minesweeper player (Expert game 139 seconds) I found this incredibly amusing.

  26. lost chauncy says:

    Ditto what Vegedus said – Lol

  27. Davith Bothain says:

    Wow. I was actually playing Minesweeper between page visits here when I stumbled across this. Alas, I strive yet still to get my Expert time under 100 seconds. What’s worse, while I managed to hit 103 in my prime, I’ve long since backslid into the 120-130 range…

    …Yep. I’ve got WAY too much time on my hands.

  28. Clay says:

    I’m here because im bored…

  29. MikeSSJ says:

    That has got to be one of the funniest things I’ve seen in a long time. I guess when I have some more time, I really need to check out that site.
