Cloud Strife (Anthony) is having trouble carrying his huge Buster Sword.


Super Smash Bros. Brawl

Fox (Anthony), Snake, Jigglypuff, and Link (Ian) are fighting on a playground set when Fox tells them to stop. He tells the three that they should get off the playground set and do something perductive with their lives. He turns to jump off and remarks that it's only a 4 foot drop. However, as soon as Fox jumps off the playground set, he is KO'd and loses his last stock. Snake tells Link and Jigglypuff that he'd rather stay on, and the other two agree.

Resident Evil 4

Courier text reads "This clip was removed because terrorist jokes aren't funny."


The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim

An old lady is panicking about her cat that is stuck on a street sign. The Dragonborn (Ian) comes in and tells the old lady that he'll take care of it. He uses the Unrelenting Force Shout ("Fus Ro Dah") on the cat, sending it flying. The old lady gasps in horror, but the Dragonborn just says, "Uhh, you're welcome!" and leaves.


Call of Duty Modern Warfare 3

Two soldiers are on the ground, in need of assistance when one of them says that it's no use, because everybody's camping. A third soldier appears and shoots aimlessly, all the while shouting "TAKE THIS YOU C**K SUCKING F***ERS! YOU F***ING D***LETS! YOU CAN'T EVEN PLAY THIS F***ING GAME! HEY, SUCK MY D***! IS ANYBODY OUT THERE? HELLO? MOM, WHERE'S MY ENERGY DRINK? I DON'T WANT THAT SH**! CHOCOLATE MILK IS FOR PUSSIES, MOM!", in a kid's voice, a nod to the stereotype of little children playing Call of Duty. One of the soldiers says he doesn't want to live on this planet anymore.


Duck Hunt

Sergeant Anous arrests two men for hunting without a permit and crossing the line by shooting at a dog jeering at them. However, the said dog pops out of the bushes and laughs. A scared Anous shoots the dog and kills it.

Deleted Scenes


Ian is going to the left and right to catch the ball, coming at him at an incredibly slow speed, but misses it and ends up screaming in frustration.


Ian eats a ball of dough to "see what it tastes like." Anthony starts blinking and Ian stares at Anthony lustfully, licking his lips. The next scene shows Ian devouring Anthony's arm while the latter screams in agony.


Ian admits that video games would be stupid if they were realistic and Anthony remarks that Ian's just never going to take his word for it. Ian admits that he never will before leaving for his rollerblade lessons, struggling to skate out the house. As Ian starts to head for his lessons, he stumbles and accidentally gropes Kitana. Ian tries to explain that it wasn't what it looked like, but Kitana punches Ian in anger and uses her finishing fire breath move to incinerate him.

Alternate Ending
