    Lol Gavin calls himself the "bullet sponge" when Michael's the only one who took damage that round.

    That was not exactly amazing to be honest... kinda felt like they rushed the brainstorming on this one.

    All seriousness, what happened to immersion? They've kinda been going down hill with the concepts....  :(

    I remember when it was Gus and Geoff, and it actually seemed like they were immersed in the atmosphere. Mind you, I love Team Nice Dynamite.

    Gavin's lips finally matches the size and scale of his nose.

    This one was hard to watch. I get how it's sponsored so it'll be cheesy regardless, but the concept for this was kind of dumb. "Hey, lazily shoot over at this stationary dude, then we'll zipline you over." That's not close to what a "Charge" would be like in real life at all.

      Not to mention that Charge is generally used as a high power opener, followed by melee attacks, a shotgun, or most likely, Nova. Also, even though I get that they had to make it so that they could go down easily, the lack of a "shield/barrier" bothered me more than it should have.....

    Their different reactions though when Burnie said "I'm sure you guys would not have selected each other", Gavin goes "Yeah!" like 'who else would I pick?' And Michael was just shaking his head like 'not in a million fucking years.'

    "Oh that hit me in the mouth," is a complete understatement. Damn man that looks painful as hell.

    It was so fun and cool to have painted the suits for the humans and the guns for everyone, and of course get to see this filmed live (rip Gavin). It looks so good!

    This was great but yeah still not gonan get till it's on special. However from watching this i reckon something like Alien Isolation would be pretty cool to do like ToddKeefe said earlier. I mean Ouch that shot on Gavin! Jon's a pretty good marksman!

    This episode tells me they're running out of ideas. Why test this at all when in the game it's based on technology that, obviously, doesn't exist?

      This tells me that EA called them up and said, "Hey! We want you to do something that we can use to promote the new Mass Effect. How about that whole Immersion nonsense or something?" To which Rooster Teeth replied, "You mean we can film an episode of Immersion and not have to pay for any of it? Sure, we can come up with some reasonable idea related to Mass Effect that might be cool."


      Fast forward to a few weeks later and they have this because what else would they fucking do for a Mass Effect Immersion?

      They've done episodes on zombies before, zombies don't exist either.  They've tested flipping a fictional vehicle from Halo, as well as a course featuring objects as easily breakable as in a video game.  In short, they test things that don't exist all the time...it's a show based entirely around "What if?"

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

      In the first season, they had Geoff and Gus try to run an obstacle course using side scrolling.  The season opener for Season 2 was entirely built around "if you have warm milk and cheese curds while driving full speed around a racing track, what happens?",  This series is built around the objective of "how can we hurt people in such a way that it's still funny" and loosely tie it into video games.

    Am I the only one that think they should re-visit the original immersions which Gus and Geoff did but with Michael and Gavin? I mean, they do have a larger budget and the idea for those tests were amazing! Especially the side scroller one!

      These would make great First Only content since so many non-Firsts have seen the old Immersions and I'm sure would love to see Michael and Gavin run them.

    While the actual test fell a little flat in execution, it was still highly amusing. Props to Gavin for taking that lip shot like a boss.

    This was funny, and I enjoyed it.  I think it should have been just a video though.  It was just too obviously staged for an immersion.

      They're all quite obviously staged...what's the difference between this and the Last of Us set up?  Or the set up with the breaking of objects from Half Life and Zelda etc?  Or the Space Invaders set up?
