It has now become part of my Halloween tradition that I go back each year and watch all of the Fear Gauntlet. Man I miss this.

Hope you make a part 2!

That is my current plan. However, with the current speed of the Fear Gauntlet (1-2 episodes per week) it could take a very, very long time.

Great video, duder. I think the Fear Gauntlet has risen to the point of being just as entertaining as the traditional Giant Bomb video features, and your video shows a lot of the reasons why.

Though I am a little sad that there was no inclusion of Rosa knowing where the library was.

Thanks!

You're not the first person to note the missing "library clip". I must admit that I have no idea what you're all referring to, and I'm sorry to have missed a golden moment.

If anyone can point me to the video where the line is spoken, I'll be sure to have it included in the next installment.

It's a running joke that starts in the 2nd or 3rd video of Condemned, I think. It's one of the first times Rosa starts talking to you. Her name is a common Hispanic name, and apparently the only thing Kessler remembered from taking Spanish in school was "¿Dónde está la biblioteca?" (Where is the library?), which he says. Pretty funny for anybody who learned Spanish or French in elementary school.

There are a bunch of later moments where Kessler keeps mentioning that Rosa "won't tell him where the library is" and things like that, though I could understand you missing them because if you don't remember the initial joke, it just sounds like Kessler making no sense. And then eventually Kessler's stupid running joke is vindicated when Rosa actually asks you to come meet her at the city library, making that an unpredictably hilarious moment.

I'm glad you included Steve's freak-out over the red chair in Condemned: Criminal Origins. That shit was hilarious.

OH-OHMYGOD.

Its funny it took me awhile to realize that the steve in this video was internet steve. Matt you could tell a mile away, for a sec I thought Drew was there too lol.

The Bee Gees moment was probably the most hilarious in Fear Gauntlet. This video series is awesome!

Posted by RedEyesBlueBunny

this is just about perfect. very nicely done :D

Inclusion of the Bee Gees, genius. nice Job.

Posted by RelentlessKnight

I was going to give the fear gauntlet another chance but fuck man, kessler is fucking annoying... thanks for giving me a heachache man!

Posted by TheGreatGuero

Awesome. While I've enjoyed the Fear Gauntlet, it's just too long for me to watch more than a few minutes here and there, so I really appreciate your effort in doing this. I'm totally watching this tonight after work. Speaking of that, gotta go!

Posted by Deusx

That was pretty awesome dude thanks so much I had fun watching this. I will put it on my G+ for everyone to see.

Posted by Romination

The "2, 3 days old" montage was great.

The parts where you put in the extra stuff, like the Bee Gees part and the flashback, were the best.

Posted by Red12b

bee gee sequence was the best thing

As far as editing goes: I personally would have done more jump cuts than fade outs, but I loved the comp overall.

I agree, the fade outs felt a little weird.

Other than that, nice video. I really liked the soda compilation at the end.

Posted by obscurefan

I think you did a great job man, like with the flashback joke and the inspector gadget song, great little jokes that fit in there well.

Posted by PrivateIronTFU

Kessler is definitely the funniest staff member on Giant Bomb.

You made me remember that spaz out in Castlevainia 64. That was great.

I love this series.

You forgot about "I've been working on a railroad, all the live long DIE!", but otherwise it was great.

I agree. Still, great video! Love that you ended on the soda machine commentary.

Posted by Klarion18

Great Job! The axe throwing and memories of said axe throwing were my favourite parts.

Posted by Fragonard

Awesome. Can't wait for more of these.

Posted by jakob187

Excellent video indeed! Now I wanna go back and watch the Condemned Fear Gauntlet all over again!

Posted by Krenor

great video

Posted by Jeffsekai

That was awesome, great work dude.

Posted by Make_Me_Mad

Just now saw this, and it's amazing. Fear Gauntlet has been fantastic so far... although I think you missed an opportunity to throw in a last second scare at the end of the soda montage. I was anticipating it the whole time for no payoff!

Posted by SuperWristBands

That was great. I haven't seen more than the first-ish episodes of the Condemned Fear Gauntlet but I am totally gonna check them out now. Also, I love the mix of scares with comedy because I never knew which was going to happen. The part where the corpse was being pulled along the ceiling scared the shit out of me! I yelled as loud as Matt and Steve!

Posted by buzz_clik

That was put together excellently.

Those mannequin men really are from the Bee Gees. Great video!

Posted by chrismafuchris

The part with the fake drinks went on too long, but otherwise great work!

Posted by KillyDarko

Great stuff, man! Good job :)

Posted by cyraxible

This is great stuff.

Perhaps for part 2 you could mine all those time Matt tried to style and failed terribly.

Posted by TMThomsen

@TurboMan: Thanks! No secret I was highly inspired by your "Best of Giant Bomb Quick Looks" series.

Posted by dudeglove

@TurboMan: Never change, Derek.

Posted by TurboMan

@TMThomsen: Good job! I'm glad that someone else did this, because I've been getting a few requests to do it myself and I was way behind on Fear Gauntlets!

All of the condemned stuff looks fun, I'm curious to see how long the fear gauntlet goes on.

Been looking forward to something to do a Turboman-esque thing of these vids.

I love you, Benjamin.

I could really go for some diet squish.

Thanks for all the feedback!

Nice editing , but how come no "mind invasion"? D:

It's hard to decide what should be included in a compilation like this. Not every clip is equally funny or interesting, and I left out some of the clips that I was too unsure about. The "mind entering scene" was one of those, as well as "the sliding body" and countless clips from Resident Evil.

Perhaps some of them will find their spot somewhere in part 2.

Posted by probablytuna

Excellent video duder and yes, the Fear Gauntlet series has become one of my favourite Giant Bomb content.

Edited by Nentisys

Nice vid!

Although I think my favorite "joke" of the Fear Gauntlet were those library references.

Matt and Steve, official ambassadors of fictional sodas.

Posted by ArbitraryWater

This has made me decide to actually watch Fear Gauntlet again, because I fell off after they finished doing Resident Evil.
