...Wow, that is rather awkward. And really doesn't make much sense at all.

It does in the context of the game. The actual name is "Shadow Hearts: Covenant". Go look up some playthroughs, particularly concerning "Pierre and Gerard" if you want context without playing the (imo, interesting) game if you're interested in it.

There's also a Penny Arcade comic about this.
Writer. Game designer.

There are no happy endings, because the story never ends.

Oh sanspants! You stir my love for Shadow Hearts! <3 But yes, the porn hunt was fun, though I dumped those two for Giant Walking Awkward Moment Jaochim. For those unfamiliar, Joachim was a wrestler vampire who sometimes dressed up as a super hero dubbed Le Grand Papilion(main colors were bright purple and pink). And he had a pechant for ripping up scenery and using it as his weapon of choice. He stole a mailbox once and that's not a joke.

Other fun things from SH include Roger Bacon's 3 game running joke of giving you the option to name him, then ripping it away saying 'Ha! You can't rename me! I'm a title character! You look so stupid!' And 'YOU FELL FOR IT AGAIN! Oh you look so dumb!' And the wolf's quest to get better moves leads you to fight Tony, the King of South Street, a wolf with a red and white hat which is a reference to Terry Bogart from Fatal Fury(I squealed at the reference).

Trying to think of others......watching the God of War sex mini games try to top each other? The one where the hookers keep running to join in was borderline ridiculous.

So, I'm playing Morrowind (with Better Bodies mod). This nude Nord asks me to help him track down the witch who robbed him, so we're tramping around the hills trying to find her. Occasional strafing makes a penis pan across my screen, whatever.

Then he gets in a fight with a worm. Nude Nord, punching a worm that's literally between his feet, as it lunges up at him. They keep spinning in a circle together, so I have no idea where their relative hitboxes are, and I'm scared to try to hit it. After about 3 minutes, I finally just shove up against them until the worm starts attacking me and stab it with my spear. The Nord is pressed right against my back, still trying to get at it.

The sex scene at the start of Assassin's Creed 2. I don't know a single person who didn't have someone awkwardly walk into the room at that very moment, myself included.

Borderlands a long time ago, my school friend unlocked explosive fists for Brick. I literally spent an entire 60 seconds seconds just staring at the screen trying to process the fact I had saw his fists just generated hundreds of massive explosions at his will.

Almost my entire first playthrough of Invisible War. Just... I killed plot important characters by accidentally bumping into physics-enabled objects. On at least 5 different occasions. No I'm not kidding you, and it didn't help me not judge it harshly at the time.

You mean Brotherhood? Cause 2 begins with a birth scene.

Also this:



There's a shit ton of awkward moments in Metal Gear Solid 2, and this isn't even the worst.

This is:

Few things are as awkward as running straight into a friendly line of tanks and APCs in Planetside 2 and promptly getting Mufasa'd into the dirt by your own allies because of it.
Likewise few things are as awkward as driving a tank and mowing down one of your fellow TRs because you weren't paying attention, or shooting down a friendly ship because it was too far away to tell if it was friend or foe, and you were damn sure about half a minute prior that it was foe until the kills showed up on your screen...

... Though at the end of the day few things are as funny as all of those things so it's all good.



*EDIT*
And if we're on the topic of MG, what about having someone unfamiliar with MG's humor in the room during one of Johnny Akiba's silly-willy pants-soiling moments?
In fact, those scenes make me feel awkward when I'm alone.

There's a scene where Ezio climbs through a girl's window and you have to press buttons to undress her. This is before he becomes an assassin.

Were they making comments on her appearance? (Sorry, I am bit confused for some reason) Coz, I know that girls like to tease guys with sexy chicks and it gets pretty annoying. Or did you just try to say things quietly or when you think they weren't paying attention and they ended up hearing you anyway?


I did make a slight innuendo. But they seemed to have misheard my comment. In any way, they didn't make any comments, more just waitting for me to say something. If I were with my guy- friends. That'd be our only topic ; her plot.


Ah, I see now.


@ gun21 ~ Isn't there a Metal Gear Solid game where you play as a naked man? (BTW, love your avi XD )

Yeah, 2. And it's hilarious. The entire last leg of MGS2 is the most magnificently trippy mindfuck in gaming.

Most uncomfortable I ever felt during a video game with friends/family was playing Final Fantasy X around my wife. When we got to Luca I just wanted to bury my head in the sand. Tidus stealing a megaphone to smacktalk the other team and then AHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!!

*Shudder*

It's a wonder I'm still allowed to play Final Fantasy at all.

Oh Final Fantasy X. I think I mentioned before how my friends were being obnoxious during Yuna's sending at that city that gets devistated by the tidal wave. They muted the tv and blasted Tenacious D. So while eveyone else got a somber scene of death and mortality, I got Yuna water dancing to The Greatest Song in the World(tribute). It went way too well together and transformed it instantly from sobering to ridiculous.
