  • Finn Bazz

    I love new Skyrim players taking on giants and watching them get introduced to the Nord Space Program.

  • Collin Skone

    My rule for Bethesda games: If it prevents me from progressing in the game, it's a glitch. Otherwise, it's a feature.

  • David AE Levy

    no more science videos?! :*(

  • Random Pessimist

    I already miss the swear-y version of austin

  • The Game Theorists

    13:45 AUSTIN! I'm so excited to start working with you on the channel! Welcome to the team! And thanks to the Shoddycast crew for letting you hop on over! You guys ROCK!

  • Phoenix Artice

    Is this a bug or a feature?Bethesda: "Yes."

  • Jackson Harris

    I had to write a letter to one of my teachers as a mid year exam and the second I typed the word dear, all of Austin's videos simultaneously played in my head

  • Bob Johnson

    Your character can easily be launched by a giant while carrying 300 or more pounds, meaning that plus his body weight is launched into the air by the giant

  • Eric Mater

    What would it take to double jump? It could be just a force hard enough to compress air enough to act as a solid or is there no posable way? Would you need wings or other forces to do this? A game to look at could be sonic just to make things easyer becouse of his speed.

  • Ken Frazier

    So, in other words, getting hit by the Giants really... Hertz.

  • chase minick

    can we get the science behind Titanfall 2 titan drops? would love to see it :D

  • The Sweez

    Hears loud noiseA giant just killed someone in China.

  • Triforce Hub

    I love that you can use a skyrim giant to power the DeLorean

  • Jimbo McGringus

    I mean, not to mention that giant would have to weigh god knows how much in order to survive the impact he created seamingly unscathed...

  • Per Dilling

    Am I the only one who assumed that it was the giant hitting you so hard you bounced off of the ground, and not them hitting the ground, that flung you upwards?Not that it necessarily makes it more realistic, but wouldn't it require less force to bounce an object of a hard surface than send waves through it?Maybe it would even change the outcome! ...Just a thought... =)

  • A Stock Photo Of Spaghetti

    I'm here to break your theory:Wouldn't the club break if it was hit on the ground that hard

  • KomRade493

    I guess this channel is dead?

  • Clunk 42

    The giants throwing you in the air actually isn't a glitch. If you type psb into the console command and then go through all the spells, you can find the spell giants sometimes cast after killing people.

  • Dylan Baer

    Onetime, I watched a giant beat the shit out of a frost dragon. The giant killed it in 7 or 8 hits

  • Jerry C

    Gotta say that you should have stayed on Shoddycast. You made way more videos while you were focused on this channel and they were a hell of a lot more entertaining


    Wouldn't the average weight be around 90 kilograms because of your inventory?

  • SonOfMyths73

    The giants haven't taken over Tamriel because, quite frankly, they are a peaceful race who don't attack without provocation and are content to live out their live with their mammoths and painted cows from the locals without EVER sending anybody up into the stratosphere.

  • GriffenGamingYT


  • The Golden Mantis

    Ok, I am NEVER going to a giant camp. EVER

  • Eduardo González

    Imagine they make a reference to ShoddyCast in a Elder Scrolls game in the futureShoddorCost as a character, a scientist nord who talks and writes lots of letters to the main character. Make it happen, Bethesda

  • dmg19111

    This was a glitch that Bethesda was going to patch in Skyrim Special Edition but the community stopped them so it became a feature.The same happened with the wall plate glitch that allows you to go through walls.Skyrim community, you are amazing!

  • Neo2266

    So if i wanna fly... i just have to make a plane crash right next to me, and i should wear earplugs

  • RocksHaveFeelings 2

    They should have done giant trebuchets instead. It is the superior seige weapon

  • britipinojeff

    I hope you eventually just replace MatPat on the Game theorists. Your videos are much more entertaining than his

  • Viking the Mad

    This shit is like Game Theory before it went to shit.I love this math.

  • Bluecave Gaming

    Actually the science for the Giants Slam makes no sense whats so ever! Everyone should know that in Skyrim you take fall damage, but you are already dead when the Giant strikes. Not to mention that you bleed when the Giant strikes, and your limbs should be decapitated from your body! You didn't even look at what material the Giants are using to kill your character! - Austin's Science Ruiner

  • DrRocketman 779

    Holy that's a shock wave...

  • Kevin O'Neal

    So Austin, how does it feel to be the most intelligent person on The Game Theorists?

  • LordBaneThePlayer

    This is just basing it of a glitch.

  • Mjhvhghgv Nhgcnggchgc

    I killed a giant while fighting a dragon the Giant killed the dragon then I killed the Giant with firebolt

  • CentrifugalFacewear

    pretty sure the giant space program is a bug. corpses are generally treated as near-weightless by the system, so whenever any force acts upon them they go along with it (like firing an icicle at a dragon skeleton and it going skating off into the wilderness), while trying to avoid any weird collisions that will clip them into things or into the level geometry. basically you et killed and squished down following the giant's attack, and then the game rubberbands you out of the floor, on top of the giant's force beign applied to your near-weightless body and off you go to visit the stars!

  • Grayson Potter

    A used rage spells on a giant and the giant hit his fellow giant sending him to the stratosphere.

  • Raptor Jesus

    What I learned from this: The giants would be GREAT at baseball.

  • Dante Legendary son of Sparda

    I got a idea for a fallout video...the SCIENCE! behind gen 3 synths in fallout 4...OK LETS DO IT!!!!

  • Jeff Vader

    Video idea, how does the cryolater work in fallout 4.

  • Logan Crabtree

    Do the SCIENCE behind the spy in team fortress 2 pls

  • Bilpliz

    Can you make a THE SCIENCE video on titan fall 2

  • Karzak

    Rip the science on shoddy cast

  • ThatOneBystander

    Dear Austin, Hey! It's me! The anonymous viewer that was just noticed! Today I have a very interesting weapon for you to do your SCIENCE skills on. That weapon is the Sheepinator from Ratchet And Clank 2, 3, and the PS4 remake. This weapon I used to be totally fine with, but after marathoning through all of your SCIENCE vids I couldn't help but notice that this weapon makes LITTLE TO NO SENSE. I mean, for starters, it can turn LITERALLY ANY ENEMY INTO A SHEEP. That includes robots, aliens, tanks, dropships, ANYTHING. Even bosses! So I just wanted to see the science behind that weapon. Sincerely, ThyHard

  • Dai thang tran

    300% more......I thought u said 3 times more than normal sound wave not four times more

  • BossMode 47

    WRONG, WRONG, WRONG!!! The giant crushes your body with the 🔨 he has and your body either gets stuck in the ground or the pressure built up when he picks up the 🔨 makes you shoot up in the air

  • MasterMax


  • Andrew Demetriou

    Dear Austin, I have recently seen a post on Facebook asking about how tough a space marine would have to be to survive a decent to the earth travelling at terminal velocity. The game 'Space Marine' comes to mind when I think about this subject, I was hoping you might be able to help solve this problem by doing a video on it and how the mathematics could work. Please help.sincerely RageFacep.s. I love what you do and I wish I was half as intelligent as you, I've watched many of your videos and love how entertaining they are. I hope you continue to have a long, awesome and joyful career with your channel.

  • bloodrunner ballantyne

    hay ples can you see if the pre sequl (borderlands) butt sallming can it kill some one?

  • Sylnt45

    For the next science video whats the science behind the spirit bomb in Dragon Ball Z? How damn powerfull is it?

  • john li

    giants haven't take over because they are peaceful

  • Bjarkegamer01

    make a THE SCIENCE behind doomfist

  • dayrohan

    Meters? kilograms? It’s hard to follow, without using yards mph .I don’t understand these measurements and why they’re being used.

  • Αναστάσιος Βαρβέρης

    I'm pretty sure you've made a big mistake... I'm no scientist but, you forgot the fact that your character can be way heavier than 75, + imagine if you had a full inventory with the heaviest possible armor..... rekt

  • Stalli111

    Tear slowly rolls down cheek

  • Declan Pearce

    But what about the weight you are carrying and the armour?

  • Lillian Finegold-Sachs

    You say that the only way it could work is by waves, but what if it worked like a see-saw: club hits ground at the right spot, slab of ground tips, unlucky player on end of slab is tossed into the sky. I know you probably have VERY good reasons as to why this is wrong, but being a dumb sophomore, I don't know these reasons. However, I would really like to.

  • Morgan Ward

    Would Project Purity have been successful considering its attachment to an irradiated ocean? If so what would that filter have to look like in order to clean that volume of water? Would that seemingly massive filter actually fit inside the Jefferson Memorial?We're shown through Fallout 4 that the northeastern seaboard saw quite a bit of nuclear activity (makes sense because population centers). In Point Lookout we see the seaboard south of the DC wasteland is heavily irradiated as well; potentially more so than the Commonwealth or DC. So if PP is stuck pulling hundreds of gallons of radioactive water to filter it and redeposit it on irradiated soil, what the fuck we're we doing all that for in the first place? Your Fallout 3 dad is an asshole.
