Graham and Paul go on a space adventure with Yahtzee! See their crossover appearance in Zero Punctuation: Halo Wars.

Vital Statistics

What a strange game, the only way to win is not to play at all.

Date: March 30, 2009

Category: Unskippable

Written And Performed By: Graham Stark and Paul Saunders

Special Guest: Ben "Yahtzee" Croshaw

Synopsis

In an April Fool's Day event, Yahtzee walks into the bathroom and finds Graham and Paul recording Unskippable, so he inserts himself into the proceedings. Yahtzee is less acclimated to the strangeness about in Star Ocean.

Stinger

Using "small straight" in that context doesn't sound very impressive.

My mother is a saint.

Trivia

  • Graham would host a small segment at the start of that week's Zero Punctuation column, complete with his own bearded cartoon avatar. He reviews X-Blades until Yahtzee comes back, kicks him out, and begins his review of Halo Wars. X-Blades would be the next episode of Unskippable, with Halo Wars following at the end of the year.
  • This episode marks the only time a guest host has appeared on Unskippable. At PAX East 2012, Graham revealed that he and Bob "MovieBob" Chipman have discussed a similar crossover with The Big Picture.
  • Yahtzee would later appear in the ENN episodes On Punctuation and ROJO, and contributed his voice to Save Our Games.
  • Other crossovers with Escapist content producers include LeeLee Scaldaferri's contributions to LRR and Graham and Paul's cameo in Doomsday Arcade.
