This game is of a high calibur.

Hell yeah! Let me hear the cry of those dead-battery VMUs!

Am I a monster for thinking SC4 is still the best of the series? I never had as much fun with any of the others as I did that one and I've played 100s of hours of all of them.

Yep.

Wow I never realized how good Dan is in fighting games.

Man, I guess Jason doesn't really play video games?

I finally realized who Dan reminds me of.

Duck.

I've never played this one, but I LOVED Soul Calibur II back in the day.

@kapelan: Honestly, I felt that way up until Dan got out of his "competitive asshole" mode around the halfway point. It's clear he's not that guy, he just knows how to be that guy when he wants to.

@punkycrisps: He's obviously doing it just to annoy Jason.

I'm 90 seconds in and Dan has just started talking directly to Jason, but he's looking off-screen to his left, away from Jason, and Jason in turn has looked away off-screen to his right and it's the only thing I can focus on now, despite the amount of Lizardman.

I'm going to be cursing for not swapping them around for the rest of this video.

Great Jason moment @ 21:20

Jesus, Dan is like the King of All Scamps.

SC is the most marshy game there is, doesn't earn that Dan is great at fighting he's now and Jason sucks

Edited by GLOK1132

Some one please get a GIF of Dan at 27:35. I had to pause the video due to laughing.

Ooh. What a nice surprise.

Yeah, I don't think that I could ever be "gaming buds" with Dan. He's way too hyper and annoying, which is odd because I don't get that vibe from him in any other context.

Like Jason, I don't get much out of fighting games by mashing buttons with characters that I don't know how to play. It's more fun to know what the hell you're doing.

Played the hell out of this entire series, although it took me awhile to pick up SC1 on the Dreamcast (I didn't realize that it was a home version of a random arcade game that I played once or twice and thought was super awesome). It bummed me out that Soul Calibur 5 had to cut so many corners to make its release date. Seems like that turned a lot of people off to the game, but what they left in there is pretty fantastic. Ultimately, I didn't have a problem with them sacrificing all of that standard extra Soul Calibur stuff in order to focus on the core fighting.

This is fucking great.

Ivy is fully clothed too, weird.

^ this. I feel like he does keep it up for a bit too long. But its still clear he just likes to fuck with Jason. Seeing as you know, theyve been friends for years and years now..

Finished! Great video, I used to play 8 vs. 8 team battle in Tekken against my friends, ahhh fun times.

MonHun 4 lyfe, foo.

This team-up is always the best.

Edited by StraightGrizzly

Soul Calibur is so fun. Soul Calibur 2 was the height of the series for me, however I have so many great memories of playing Soul Edge in the arcade.

Posted by masterpaperlink

what? Ivy used to be cool?

Posted by Tussler

8v8 all random, the true test of skill.

Holds up so well. Kinda depressed having watched the latest Tekken 7 trailer before watching this. Had high hopes for this new generation of 3D fighters, but seems all we get it is a resolution bumb and a puppyload of screenshake.

Edited by chu52

I think we need a Bombastica of Blitz with Jeff and Dan so his smug dumb face is rubbed in it.

For the record I love you Dan, and I have multiple signed books of yours. BUT YOU ARE AN INCORRIGIBLE RASCAL sometimes

Edited by ToTheNines

LIZARD MAN!

wait, Ivy used to actually have clothes on? what the fuck..

Posted by metalliccookies

7 minutes in and I'm out

Posted by juhoz

Another thing I can agree Dan with. Fuck Rock and his stupid god damn axe/mace.

Yeah, when this game came out it was crazy to have so much content in a fighting game. I had so much fun with this stupid thing, really a great game.

Edited by Jayxeno

I imagine Dan practiced before filming this, he seems like he can't stand losing :P

Also, some day we'll turn on the news and see that Jason has murdered Dan. Jason will tell everyone that he had to do it to save humanity and no one will believe him--but he'll be right.

Edited by m1k3

Never played the first Soulcaliber, but I do enjoy the Jason and Dan duo. Really fun to watch.

Posted by hollitz

Might be the fighting game I've had the most fun with. There was just so much to do.

Depends what you're looking for in an SC game. SC4 had the best customisation but was a terrible competitive game (albeit, not as awful as SC3 for console). SC2 and SC3 probably have the most extensive and enjoyable singleplayer while SC5 ultimately has the most refined and competitive gameplay but has a disappointing roster.

Why does Dan sound like Zoidberg when playing Seungmina?

Edited by TJK

This video was really good. Probably one of the best things to come out of GB in awhile. There's something to Jason and Dan's chemistry

@straightgrizzly: gonna have to agree. and Link will always be the best character in the Soul Calibur series.

This video is amazing.
