DAMN YOU KESSLER

Steam needs Typing of the Dead.

Matt "OH NO" Kessler

Edited by EuanDewar

I'm always pondering as to the location of G.

Also, should have done Typing of The Dead.

Love this series.

This feels wrong the Interns are making better content than the full time staff (minus Patrick and Alex).

"Typing" was scarier. Glad you didn't plump for Overkill, its deliberate B-Movie humor is (slightly) funnier than than the Engrish in this game and alleviates the SHEER HORROR somewhat.

MediEvil was probably the scariest (and best) game I played when I was little. The Stained Glass Demon scared the crap out of me.

I didn't even know this video series existed! I love me some House of the Dead, although I haven't been able to find a port of the first one anywhere. Oh, and no one seems to know that you can hurt the knight boss by shooting it in the crotch.
 
Also demon sloth monster from the third was the best.

Has Kessler found out about the sabotage yet?

Posted by sirdesmond

I wish all this great intern content got uploaded onto the Giant Bomb video player since YouTube is blocked at my place of business. Now I have to wait until I get home to watch it! What will I do until then because it's much too late in the day on Friday for me to do any actual work?

Posted by TheFreeMan

This was the best one yet. You guys are really doing great - loved the silly voice acting and the wacky banter. Keep it up! 
 
also my best memory of this game is the time my dad quit playing it with me so I dual wielded the guns as both players and it was glorious

Yes. He's super sad.

And More episodes coming soon!

Posted by Yummylee

Really are sticking strong to your assertion of eventually getting to the scary games. Also@MattBodega: YOU HAVE THE POST NUMBER OF THE DEVIL! I find that fitting for it to be in an episode of the Fear Gauntlet, now you must never post again until you've finished this series to keep this awesome combination.

Dawn of the dead (remake) has a sick zombie bus.

Medievil legitimately scared me as a kid too. Though the level that did it for me was "The Slepless Village", atleast that's what I think it was called. It's was surprisingly dark for a childrens game. Those creepy little girls with the axes that tried to kill you... man Medievil was fucked up at times! But I still love it!

Posted by RandomInternetUser

Again, great video.  Bus driver section was gold.

Posted by ModernAlkemie

Really enjoying the segments! Your personalities complement each other well in this format.

I understand the one-offs for some of these games, but I hope you are able to get a few sessions in for some of the games that deserve it and require more investment to get the thrills out of them. Of course, only if you are enjoying playing the game!

Keep up the good work guys!

The Enchanted Earth was freaky as Hell once you awoke the demons.

Your new nickname is LATINO HEAT!

Suffer like G did?! 
 
Oh no Matt Kessler! your body is rebelling!.. again! 
 
Seriously though, this is the best Fear Gauntlet episode yet,

Posted by Steve_Ramirez

@Beforet: That's our last episode, so it'll be in a little while. And games that deserve more time will get just that. Multiple parts even! :)

Posted by SlashDance

Why isn't this on the site ? I think it would belong.

Keep up the great work on all the intern video content, it's good stuff.

Posted by dvdhaus

Really digging all this Intern video content. Plus I just found the Bomb Shelter tab on the User tab. Awesome stuff.

Posted by Make_Me_Mad

I love this, but will feel kind of bad about it if Fatal Frame doesn't get endured.  Along with like, the entire second half of the list... and Silent Hill 3 totally deserves a play!  It's scary AND the graphics still hold up.

Another great show. Looking forward to the next installment.

Posted by JackiJinx

Guys, I like this content, but please only use that intro for the first episode. Doesn't work for the other ones and it's driving me nuts.

Posted by sirdesmond

Finally got to watch this. Loved every minute of it. While I would agree that the game was only mildly unsettling as a child, it's still pretty fun as an adult, although I much prefer Typing (for pure strangeness, if nothing else).

Posted by MEATBALL

Are those zombie LAMPREYS!? That's actually kind of terrifying.

Posted by punkxblaze

Oh my god. This is one of the first times Matt has had me giving a good belly laugh ever. Good job, Mr. Kessler and Internet Steve. "Oh No! Grandpa!"

@ethan: Intern content has been top notch lately and feels very fresh. Please find a way to keep them around after their internships are over.

And the trip continues! Let's get scared.

Thanks dude. Comments like that mean ALOT to us ( we also need negative criticism too of course). But yes, we're working on a plan to keep this intern content flowing. Some things are in the works!

Edited by TwoLines

I really enjoy the intern content guys. Hope there's more coming!

Posted by CrazyBagMan

Loving these! Keep up the awesome vids!
