Spoiler Warning: Synergy Part 1

Spoiler Warning


If you’ve ever wondered what Spoiler Warning would look like without my steady hand on the wheel, this is your chance to find out. Last week I told the crew I was sick, and asked them to go on without me. So they decided to act like… well, you’ll see.

The “Part 1” business makes me think that there might be MORE of this idiocy? I don’t know. Maybe that’s just Josh trolling us on another level? I have no idea. If things go to plan then we’ll be returning to Mass Effect 3 in the coming week.

If you really need something more analytic and less spastic, then check out the new Errant Signal, which is on Photorealism.

  1. Varre says:

    My god, that was glorious. I am amazed at how quickly that devolved into ramdon ganking and backstabbing.

  2. The Defenestrator says:

    There needs to be more of this.

  3. Vagrant says:

    Best Spoiler Warning ever. Even better than the Fallout 3 inventory episodes.

  4. Lame Duck says:

    It’s almost like Half-Life 2 wasn’t really built to support multiplayer. Or like it was built explicitly for multiplayer. I can’t quite tell which one it is from this video.

  5. Cody211282 says:

    New rule-If Glitch is in the video, shenanigans will ensue.

  6. Sozac says:

    Can’t wait for Part 2!

  7. Xanyr says:

    I think Chris is the best addition to Spoiler Warning because he can do both insightful commentary and analysis. At the same time he can do random crazy bullshit like this.

  8. Corpital says:

    This is one of the most things I have ever seen in my life.

    Someone should really do a study if people can be genetically coded to be gremlins. Every piece of software touched by the crew touch literally explodes with bugs(in the case of reverse pickpocketing a grenade into a beehive).

  9. X2Eliah says:

    Huh. So. How about them multiplayer in games?

  10. Sumanai (Asimech) says:

    Well, that was 14 minutes of chaos.

    That’s all my brain can produce right now.

  11. LunaticFringe says:

    Judging from Glitch, Josh’s play style seems to be genetic. Or with sheer insanity of this episode, contagious.

  12. Sabrdance (MatthewH) says:

    Yeah… my eyes my eyes? No that doesn’t seem right. What just happened? Getting warmer.



    That sums my feelings well.

  13. Jace911 says:

    This is either Spoiler Warning’s weakest episode or its finest hour. Probably both.

    *gets crushed by falling car*

  14. Deadyawn says:

    That was pretty hilarious but seeing as how its synergy I expected nothing less. Also, Funkorama is the best music becuase it makes me remember three-dog getting blown up.

  15. Eljacko says:

    Okay. There needs to be an official Spoiler Warning server in Synergy that just does THIS the whole time. More than one if necessary. I don’t know what the player limit cap is.

  16. ThomasWa says:

    Only Josh would snipe someone using a saw blade.

  17. swenson says:

    That was the single greatest thing I have ever seen. If they can only do this sort of thing when Shamus isn’t around, then I’m sorry, man, but I have to proclaim you a killjoy. :P

  18. slipshod says:

    Best. SW. Ever.

    Oh, and Josh’s saw blade snipe kill was incredible. Years of practice on other innocent souls, I guess…

  19. Jexter says:

    Unfortunately, trying this with random people online is a great way to get you kicked. Most online Synergy maps just turn into a race to the finish, where the only way to get kills is to run as quickly as you can to keep up with the speedsters at the front of the pack.

  20. LibertarianSDR says:

    “Through there is Ravenholm. We…Don’t go there anymore.”

  21. Daemian Lucifer says:

    Gli makes for a good Shame replacement.

  22. Hoffenbach says:

    For the longest time, the Amnesia episode was my favorite episode of Spoiler Warning. Now, it’s this one. Well done.

  23. crossbraindedfool says:

    When the Kevin MacLeod piece you used for credits in Season 2 started up I started smiling and thought “Elemental Spoiler Warning : Maximum chaos and silliness.”

  24. Alexander The 1st says:

    I propose a drinking game for this series of videos:

    – Take a drink every time someone dies, stacking for multiple deaths at a time.

    – Finish a drink if it’s Josh that dies due to holding a barrel.

    – Take two drinks twice every time someone almost gets progress only for the others to spawn and end up turning it into a bloodbath.

    – Finish a drink every time Campster survives a bloodbath.

    – Take a drink every time Josh survives only to die at the end, and force a total respawn.

    I think that should be enough for me to say that I am not liable for any loss of liver or kidney from this drinking game. Also, not liable for alcohol poisoning. Play this game at your own risk.

    EDIT: In hindsight, perhaps it would be better to simply put it as “Take a drink everytime someone begins speaking.” That should get one fairly drunk. Shame that Campster didn’t speak as much.

  25. Deadfast says:

    OK, this started out pretty funny. But by the time they got to the cars I had problems keeping on my chair. Please let there be more of this!

  26. Cybron says:

    The only episode better than this is the Amnesia one. It harkens back to the Fallout 3 days.

  27. RTBones says:

    That was…deliciously silly and sumptuously chaotic. A perfect example and salubrious sample of a fox in Molotov’s hen house chasing Pavlov’s cat while Heisenburg is uncertain of what to do about it all.

  28. guy says:

    This is the best worst thing ever.

  29. Johan says:

    Enjoyable, but no link to the mod. I’m not saying I can’t google it (found it easily I think), but was it so bad you didn’t really want to give it an audience?

  30. ACman says:

    Shamus, you’re just upset that you missed this.

    And I demand the rest of this series.
