Hey guys, I'd thought it'd be cool for us to have a thread to showcase some of the content Dan and Jason have been a part of in the past. To be honest, I never really patronized Game Informer, so I have a relatively small amount of knowledge about these guys. I'd love to see some of the best videos, articles, and anything else that these two have had to offer! I'll start off with one video I saw on a different thread of Dan interviewing Peter Molyneux, and my personal favorite Dan Ryckert appearance, the world record attempt he was involved in a few years ago.
Jason hosted Dan and a bunch of other GI folks to stream a weekend 11-hour playthrough of Ride to Hell:Retribution at his lake house. It was amazing. At one point they called the writer of the game.
Alas, it is no longer on Game Informer's Twitch Page.
I would say that the 2014 Super Replay Challenge was hosted by Jason O. and is worth viewing for his quirky game challenge picks. (Unable to post video from my locale)
@sen0r_awes0me: Yeah, Jason did a great job with the Replay Showdown this year. Here's the first episode featuring Mount Your Friends, note the fantastic editing (watch it on Youtube and the other episodes show up in the right column)
And oh god, that Ride to Hell stream. Believe it was supposed to end at 11 per Reiner, but went waaaaay too late. Drunk Kim was a highlight.
The Dragon's Dogma Test Chamber they did was one of the first that I watched and pretty much endeared Dan to me immediately:
The 2012 holiday special of Replay wherein they played that terrible Grinch game is pretty excellent:
And though it's no longer listed under their past broadcasts on Twitch, I was able to stumble onto a link to the Ride to Hell marathon archive...
The videos of Dan's Dad being forced to play various video games are all pretty great.
If you want to see Dan annoy another human being into insanity, then the Ninja Gaiden Super Replay is pretty good.
@quid_pro_bono: Seeing "smashed" and "Guinness" I totally thought it was a "drinking Guinness while playing video games" record, but the actual video is pretty good, too. That ending is fantastic, showing the gross NOS shit with "plenty of hot chicks inside." Eugh. I wonder how Dan will feel about joining Giant Bomb's next Extra Life stream.
So people are posting a lot of videos but if you guys want a whole lot more of Jason along with some of his friends check out the Interactive Distractions Podcast . There were a few years where Jason was off the main roster of regulars but as current plans stand he will still be doing that show while working at Giant Bomb at least for time being. So check it out! Some of the old podcasts as well as their Mass Effect spoiler episodes are really great.
