    On the bright side... These guys (I don't know the names of the lab rats.) won't be earth's line of defense... right? And we won't be fighting the alien armada with nerf guns... right?

    Looks like I found the U.S contingency plan for an Alien Invasion

    This as follows

    1. Surrender Chicago as apparently no on wants it

    2. Raid the Nerf Weapons Factory for supplies and weapons as they the best in the world

    3. Hire the Achievement Hunters and maybe Brownman/Ray, to man our final hope

    4. Find out that Gus is leading the Invasion

    5. Expect the Mad King to take over the Alien Invasion and his betrayal of humanity

    6. Achieve Human victory in Australia

      Fuck Chicago, give them the Jersey Shore! The entire world would be better off without it.

    This show is so awesome.

    I have an idea for immersion.

    Explosive barrels and propan tanks.

    let's see what damage can be done to these things (pistol, shot gun, automatic) and what it takes to really blow them up (incendiary ammo? borderlands!!!!)


    • Daniel908Jk FIRST Member Star(s) Indication of membership status - One star is a FIRST member, two stars is Double Gold

      Not only does that sound really expensive, but also really really dangerous! Never the less I would enjoy watching it as well. Great suggestion!

    • Andioeast

      1 year ago

      well fuel is pretty cheap right now.

      but I agree about the dangers.

      Propan tanks have a huge blast radius, even the little camping ones (I would not go after one with less than a sniper rifle).

      Since they are in the US they could probably find a shooting range or a desert to pull that stunt of.

    • nihilistic-nobody FIRST Member Star(s) Indication of membership status - One star is a FIRST member, two stars is Double Gold

      I'm positive the Mythbusters already tested that one. You basically need a high caliber weapon to pierce the thick metal. Either that or a mini gun

    Hey Burnie, Gavin is better at intro's. Leave them to him from now on. BTW Gus you looked so GAY in your mother ship costume.

    • She_Noob087 FIRST Member Star(s) Indication of membership status - One star is a FIRST member, two stars is Double Gold RWBY Loving Gamer

      1 year ago

      Okay,

      1. Burnie was awesome at the intros.

      2. The reason Gavin is doing them now is he's Creative Director of Rooster Teeth as of about a week ago.
      3. You're clearly an immature 12-year-old if you use the word "gay" like that.
      4. Fuck off, nowhere cares about your irrelevant opinion, kid.

      Burnie was probably busy at the time of filming I guess. Anyways, I think that they're both great at doing the intro!

    Oh, man! I can't wait until RTX Canada.


    I wonder what type of Immersion game they will play there. Hopefully something Canadian. Like Assassin's Creed, I guess. That's made in Canada. They could have the 2 lab rats try to kill each other while hiding among NPCs and stuff. Or they could just do something like the Metal Gear Solid one, but AC themed. Or they could do like a parkour race. Maybe have a section where they have to climb up a fake building that's really just a rock climbing wall in disguise and then do a leap of faith off the top into a pile of hay. Or you know, one of those big stunt airbag things instead so they don't die.

      Or they run and hide from Barb, who's armed with a paintball gun. It's her home turf, after all.

    i think they could have done it if they picked a gun that wasn't so shitty. the rampage would have been a good choice.

    Too bad they used the Nerf Doominator. That's arguably one of the most unwieldy blasters they make. Either way, good episode!

    Ryan would betray earth at the last second.

    • FirenautPhx FIRST Member Star(s) Indication of membership status - One star is a FIRST member, two stars is Double Gold Phoenician

      1 year ago

      And betray Gus to become Mad King and rule the space invaders. It's full circle.


      Also this is already much better than Pixels.

    I wonder, did they picked the Nerf Doominator because it's already green or because it is totally useless?

    I'm a little annoyed that Ryan and Michael were sabotaged by faulty hardware. They would have been in way better shape if they had a gun that worked.

      A slingshot and a waterbaloon? Heck an improvised blowgun and the nerf darts would have been more efficient XD
