I feel so empty missing this.. like, missing freedom even though im not American. I'll just fill it by watching this and Metal Wolf Chaos.

Awesome! i was afraid this wasnt going to make it up tonight. Almost 4 hours man.

Posted by DrZing

@forteexe21 Omg yes, Metal Wolf Chaos, what a game! From Software just doesn't make em like they used to. ;)

I'm really enjoying everything Dan has been in so far!

I guess I came home too late to see it live. Can't wait to watch it now! Thanks for the upload.

Get this dota shit out of my face

It is so good to have Dan on that couch. And after watching Dan and his dad, Jason showed he is top notch. They are both perfect fits.

I've got 1057 hours into dota 2 and I've got 543 wins.

Mo' Dota.

It's great to finally see Dan on the team. He was such a key part of Super Replay's. He seems like the perfect fit to the GB team.

OK I'll just be another dude saying I'm happy with the Dan Ryckert hire. I really like his intensity when playing games and amused by all of his getting to know ya questions. Welcome to GB Dan!

Posted by bushpusherr

It was really cool seeing Dan exposed to all of the GB live show shenanigans that we've all come to take for granted (like the transitions, and replays, etc). I look forward to seeing him react to other mainstays like Windjammers and especially Gang Beasts. Everything is lookin' up!!

I like this Dan chap.
His voice reminds me of a less gravely Will Arnett.

GB Wolfpac has proven to be a couple of great hires. They really accentuate the strengths of GB Hollywood.

Dan is pretty damn awesome, i must admit. Perfect addition to the team!

His enthusiasm actually made this fun to watch, usually i roll my eyes at Jeffs retro game obsession.

Well done for America, duders! http://static.giantbomb.com/uploads/original/9/92448/2605824-2572336-1121187965-25033.png7

Dan adds a much needed new personality to these streams, it's very refreshing.

Posted by TournamentOfHate

@clonedzero: Yeah usually the other guys just play whatever Jeff throws in there but Dan got really into it. Fun listening to their childhood memories in gaming too.

Brad boasting about being a slave to Dota...

999 hours, good god.

Posted by bboymaestro

Does this stream seem extra silky, or is it just me? Damn crisp picture.

Posted by Mister_Snig

It's really weird to hear someone on the couch that doesn't know about Giant Bomb's crazy rabbit holes (eg F1, Dota, Tetris Battle Gaiden). It'll be awesome watching Dan and Justin see all this stuff for the first time :D

Posted by Codicier

Dan sounds very much like Tom Chick to me. Anyone else hear that?

Posted by Insertcoins

To Dan as far as learning a MOBA you should play against bots for awhile before joining an actual match. If you are familiar with raiding in an MMO you wouldn't create a new character then join a raid 5 minutes later and expect to perform well.

I missed both of these :(

Can anyone explain to me what the purpose of the Retron 5 actually is or for whom it is made? It just seems like an expensive and yet wildly inaccurate emulator. Yeah, you get to play your own ROMs so I guess those concerned about legality and such would be into it, but ugh. To me the entire benefit of having real copies of games and older consoles is to have the actual experience of the games, free of any weirdnesses emulation brings into the picture.

Lots of sexual tension in that video. The new guy kept asking Jeff questions, I think he likes him...

You sacrifice accuracy for convenience.

Instead of 5 consoles you have 1, you can use cheats and save states, you can use SNES controller in Genesis games and vice versa, you don't have to deal with getting an SD signal into a modern HDTV which may or may not have composite/rca ports, etc..

I knew the Terrorists wouldn't win! As others have said... 'Merica!

Celebrating July 4th with Japanese video games... just as the Founding Fathers would have wanted.

Posted by TDot

I'm not sure if I like the new cast of this season of Giant Bomb...

Posted by Hyper_Bunny_Meow

Hope they can release the dota stream as another file so could hear the audio too.

Posted by AMyggen

Great stream, welcome to Dan and Jason!

Jeff looks like he has lost weight. Good for him.

Posted by Astrophyle

The Retron 5 sounds like crap, at least over the streams. Contra sounded terrible earlier as well.

Posted by ripelivejam

i think it's kind of funny how brad just said "fuck y'all, i'll play more DOTA"

i'm sure i'm ignorant but didn't they used to have to break like every 2 hours to archive footage? or do they only do that during long ass streams just in the interest of breaking them into more manageable bits? i always thought there was a technical reason they did it.

World Smash Ball is way more exciting than the World Cup

3:11:00 really needs to be a gif of Dan immediately. It rivals Brad's emoticon from the chat.
