Ok, it's not quite a "return" per se.. In the following video, Gary Whitta does a guest review for "Hot Pepper Gaming", a YouTube video series in which the host attempts to talk about a particular game after having consumed an extremely hot pepper.

He does fairly well, I have to say.

I'd love to see the Giant Bomb crew make guest appearances on this series.

That is a fantastic idea and I'm all for entertaining review gimmicks.

That's both incredibly dumb and kind of awesome at the same time. Ten thumbs up!

EgoRaptor's review was hilarious... for the first two minutes, then you just feel really bad for him.

#5 Edited by Milkman (17481 posts) -

Brad needs to get on this immediately.

#6 Posted by MX (247 posts) -

Garry is holding up quite well compared to Egoraptor. Great concept and would love to see Brad to do one.

He could do a Hot Pepper review for Brothers: "There won't be 10 peppers better than this Habanero this year."

That was really amazing in some weird voyeuristically sadistic way.

This one is great because it just seems like she's having a mental breakdown.

#10 Posted by MarkWahlberg (4610 posts) -

Wonder if they got the idea from that one video series of women reading classic literature while being... 'vibrated.'

This version is better.

I'm gonna go get me some habanero peppers because I need to know what they're going through.

Do not worry she is just really emotional over the grand theft auto yo!

MAN this is awesome!

I feel dirty for liking this so much. Funny how such a dumb little twist can make reviews interesting for the first time. Though if this catches on it's only a matter of time until the pain progresses until they are just blind folded and randomly kicked in the nuts at some point.

Jesus christ I really felt bad for Arin at the end of that he ate that thing in the WORST way.

She ate a fucking Scotch Bonnet, I'm surprised she was able to function at all.

This is the greatest thing on the internet today.

Which is actually pretty high praise!

I second that. Also Erin is cute. But I kinda feel like watching torture porn, so I feel dirty.

Oh god... The cat... I feel so bad, yet I laugh so much.

#19 Edited by Butano (1805 posts) -

I have a feeling I would be really good at that, considering my love for peppers, but these videos are hilarious!

#20 Posted by JJOR64 (19096 posts) -

He did pretty well.

#21 Posted by l4wd0g (2026 posts) -

Gary didn't even eat the whole pepper.

#22 Posted by AMyggen (3872 posts) -

This is the best! The cat moment in the video with that girl is funny in such an awful way :D

#23 Edited by Pezen (1701 posts) -

I really like those reviews, it's a pretty fun concept. I could probably do that, and not have an extremely funny video though, as I am pretty resilient to spicy things. Granted, some of those are more fun and less informative as the reviewer is barely speaking. But hey, good entertainment!

#24 Posted by ThunderSlash (2029 posts) -

Gary Whitta you so crazy! I wonder if he had to rehearse that.

#25 Edited by Kear (109 posts) -

HAHA, thanks for posting this. I would love to see all the guys from Giantbomb do this.

#26 Posted by Mikemcn (7057 posts) -

It must be a really emotionally impactful game, he's tearing up just talking about it.

#27 Posted by Deusx (1911 posts) -

You guys don't know shit about game reviews

#28 Posted by hanktherapper (391 posts) -

That was entertaining to watch but not practical. I wasn't paying any attention to the review.

#29 Posted by warxsnake (2650 posts) -

GIANTBOMB, you know what to do on friday

#30 Posted by EchoEcho (837 posts) -

Somehow I don't think "practicality" was high on their list when they devised this series.

#31 Posted by mrcraggle (1989 posts) -

Thank you for introducing me to this series. It's interesting to see how different people cope. Gary was able to handle it pretty well aside from the hiccups but Arin aka Egoraptor was barely able to function. I'd be pretty terrible at this seeing how I can't even eat chocolate without getting heartburn.

#32 Posted by ThatOneDudeNick (810 posts) -

Kind of like Spicy Interviews...

#33 Posted by Quarters (1954 posts) -

I think we just found a new wrinkle to add to Breaking Brad.

#34 Posted by CatsAkimbo (650 posts) -

Next let's watch someone take a football to the groin while talking about games.

at 2:27 "But it's fun. It's really fucking fun. *weeping* I want to kill myself"

#36 Posted by DEFE (278 posts) -

Ah, excellent. I remember him mentioning that he was going to do this a while ago. Thank you for providing the link. That was fun.

#37 Posted by CornBREDX (6254 posts) -

That was sadistically great.

You can actually see the point when it hits him, and his face just melts (its at about 30 seconds). I felt kind of bad watching it haha

He's such a good sport.

#38 Posted by McGhee (6075 posts) -

Habenero is no joke. Use to work at a Tex Mex place and sometimes people would gather money to see someone eat one of those. I had a shitty night waiting tables and made an extra $20 doing it. Wasn't worth it, man.

#39 Posted by elpurplemonkey (155 posts) -

This is perfect in all the right ways. I need to see Giant Bomb explore this territory.

Jebus, I couldn't watch that all. Poor dude was barely holding together.

I'd like to think I can handle my spicy foods.. but I've never tried these hell-bound peppers.

#42 Posted by Zaccheus (1809 posts) -

Garry was super cool about it. Great and a bit disappointing at the same time.

#43 Posted by ArbitraryWater (12248 posts) -

Gary held it down pretty well, especially compared to poor Egoraptor.

Also I approve of this dumb concept.

So........I am actually disappointed this does not exist.......yet.

Good lord. You weren't kidding. It's hilarious for the first two minutes, but the rest of the time he looks like he's about to have an honest medical emergency.

#46 Edited by Akyho (1713 posts) -

Ninja Brian is awesome, Ego raptor requested the hottest habanero (to be funny and get the biggest reaction) so its a more concentrated one he got and it shows. I just cant help but laugh at her "NO KITTY! dont drink" my milk!" and "AAAUAAAH!!! sometimes it makes you use the D pad!....I am so mad at this cat right now.

Also for some background on Ninja Brian in a musical form.

There won't be 10 Brad memes better than that one this year.

Or ever.

What a spicy review.

#49 Posted by HellknightLeon (467 posts) -

I don't know what I just watched... Love Garry... but this is an odd bit of content.... eat a pepper and talk.... I better watch MORE of this!!!

#50 Edited by Sayishere (1841 posts) -

Lol, this is amazing, is it bad for me to like seeing him squirm? this is sadistic, and amazing. I wanna play Gone Home again....while eating a pepper!
