    In his defence, he said prior to their game that he had only played it once, and all he managed to do that time was shoot himself in the foot.

    Fallon quickly found the DD44 Dostovei, while all Brosnan managed to do was aimlessly run around chopping things with his hand while picking up body armour.

    It didn't take long for the Tonight Show host to hunt down his Irish guest and begin shooting him.
