Wooo! I'm ready to be feared in gauntlet form.

Shit. This has been going on forever. I haven't watched this for a long time (mainly because they're not covering games that I've played), so can somebody explain the criteria that makes them stop a particular game? Do they stop when they're really scared, or when they're not scared anymore, or when they just get a feel for the game? And since I haven't watched this in a while, are these games providing enough content to warrant several hours worth of videos?

Jeeze, you guys really took that dude's threat about beating homeless people to death seriously huh? 
 
Keep em coming, and pleeeze keep doing Condemned because this game really does keep delivering.

@Video_Game_King: There doesn't seem to be a system in place for how long they stick with games, they've just got really attached to Condemned's bum fighting and semen sample taking. I think they intend to beat it, so GB can claim they did an endurance run this year.

The longer they take with each game though, the more Fear Gauntlets there'll be in total. I am okay with this.

It's on YouTube, though, so it's closer to a Let's Play. A decent Let's Play (certainly better than my crappy one), but still a Let's Play. But now that I think about it, more LPs need fighting bums for the semen.

@Video_Game_King:

1) They stop when the game doesn't scare them anymore.

2) I'm still very much enjoying the Condemned episodes. They are great.

The Fear Gauntlet, as Brad Shoemaker would say, rages on! 
 
Another fine episode, gentlemen.  
 
Kessler, never stop being Kessler!

But that would require Ryan and them acknowledging that these exist, which they don't seem to be doing (at least not officially). I bet they've been filming these secretly whilst Ryan has his back turned.

Yeah, the condemned series is awesome. I love them for not stopping and just doing what they want. Can't wait to see the ending of this game.

I'm working on a massive hobo conspiracy theory in which the hobos steal the city's supply of phone books and use them as makeshift body armor.

Posted by CornBREDX

@Video_Game_King: I think they keep playing this one because its really good AND they are getting more hits on it... maybe.

They have never actually said, I'm just guessing.

I never get tired of hearing Kessler eat dead birds.

Love seeing this back on a regular schedule. This should really be on the front page of Giant Bomb.

Posted by AjayRaz

@obscurefan: it is.. kinda. it's on the community spotlight section on the right side i think

Posted by rjayb89

Aw yeah, the only good intern content.

Posted by obscurefan

@AjayRaz: Yeah that's true, but I'd still like to see it right at the top of the page as like the spotlight video, I think it's good enough that it deserves that.

Posted by DexterKid

Kessler needs to get better at playing this, otherwise they wont get much further in this game. From what I remember, it gets a lot harder.

Posted by DiscoDuck8k

Dumpstergeddon begins now! You guys never fail to make me laugh.

Posted by wafflez

I'd like to see them/you guys finish the game. Also, I'd like to see more LoL play. I'm too scared to try LoL but I like watching other people play :D

Posted by Slaker117

Oh man, I was always terrified by those paper cutters as a kid. Seemed like a great way to accidentally cut your fingers off. Seeing it used as a weapon only confirms my childhood suspicion that they crave blood.

Posted by Rhombus_Of_Terror

Thank god you have Steve there to remind Kessler there is something coming for him to his right when he turns left.

Posted by Vexxan

I think Steve might've been born with the ability to sense nearby dead birds. I'm always surprised to hear "Hey, a dead bird down there!".
