@csl316: I'm seriously shocked Reiner or Turi never attempted to attack Dan before.

I'm also writing this to say Turi is also great.

Posted by Roundlay

Yes!

Between the EU Hub playing Gang Beasts and now these guys playing Mario Party, I'm totally ready for Jeff to just start playing games with Statsman Bruno.

Tim Turi is one of my favorite video gamesmen. We're talking top 3.

And JeffM got so, so close to losing it during Ninja Gaiden.

Also, I'm clicking through this to see what I'm in for (Overblood). Each time, Jeff is either shaking his head, frowning, or has a hateful, defeated look on his face. As expected!

Anyone have the issue of playing this video in HTML 5 then have the audio go out of sync later in the video? I did refresh and it fixed it, but thought it was weird that it happened.

I'm using the latest FireFox.

Posted by TimesHero

Did the audio fall out of sync about 15 mins in or is it just me?

As much as they hated doing this it made for some really entertaining content. I'm so happy Dan's along for the ride!

Thank you for doing this, guys -- I laughed almost the whole time. :)

@fonzinator: oh no, I know its all for the laughs... I've just got a dark sense of humor. It is excruciating, but fun.

I did think the laughs wore slightly thin for a while there.. but particularly the ending was kinda spectacular. Personally though, I don't know if I could play this game for so long maintaining my sanity... much less with Rycket.

Thats why I said it was fantastic for horrifying reasons.

Laughs did run a but low at the end, but that will probably happen with any 3 hour stream. I think we can both agree that the 9 (in 2015 to be 10) part series needs to happen for real.

I believe this about sums up the stream.

If that evil grin isn't a chat emote by next week...

I paused it at around 10 minutes and saw Jeff and Brad smiling, and Drew's hair was all nice and orderly.

I then skipped it to 2 hours and 40 minutes in, and everyone had exhausted faces with no smiles, and Drew's hair was disheveled and unruly. It was pretty goddamn funny.

So glad Dan is part of GB! His personality brings such an awesome energy to the crew.

Dan is more Mario Party than man now...

Edited by RetroVirus

This was amazing. The minigame when Jeff missed the last jump to win I laughed so hard.

They need to break the world record for the longest Mario Party marathon. It would only have to be two whole matches because no one has ever survived the overwhelming violence that happens halfway through the second match.

Dan is so much win.

Posted by CaptainInvictus

I started liking Dan less and less watching this. He was being a really smug dick too much of the time. I'd definitely stop hanging out with someone if they acted like that playing a friendly game.

You do know that while I'm sure it was enjoyable for him because he's a fun-lovin' guy and all, he was also clearly playing up a heel persona, right?

This is the best Mario party...

About to dig into this monster.

Great idea for premium content!

@coolarman: I made it during the live show and pasted it in the chat.

Glad it got some chuckles!

Edited by Kingpk

Not pictured: Jeff taking a hammer into the GameSpot archive room and destroying all copies of Mario Party and its sequels. Then following Dan to his apartment to destroy his copies to make sure.

You did a great job. Funny shit

Posted by Klarion18

Dan's utter joy and Jeff's utter contempt are so good here.

Posted by BluntTheKing

It really is videos like these that further cement Jeff as a true agent of chaos

Yep, same problem in Chrome, latest version, at around 20 minutes. Refreshing fixed it as well.

Posted by FinalDasa

@sydlanel: If you go back and watch the Fortune Street stream it wasn't too different other than the general contempt towards the game. I seriously doubt anyone would be playing a game they genuinely hated, or at least without realizing the entertainment value of doing so. Dan brings an unabashed enthusiasm to games he enjoys and that over enthusiasm plays well against Brad/Drew's apathy and Jeff's disdain.

So yeah, there's a method to the madness even if it isn't all thought and planned out. It's about putting these dudes into a room, with a game or games, and having fun.

Same thing happened to me on chrome and refreshing did fix it. Not sure what's up with that.

@fobwashed: Thank you for this gif, it is amazing! Still laughing my ass off.

Posted by InsiderGamer

Guess we should be congratulating Dan as the newest addition to the Giant Bomb East crew after this.

(as overheard from chat)

Two words: Fortune Street.

Edited by ChosenOne

Best thing since Fortune Street. Content like this is why I'm subscribed, thoroughly enjoyed it.

Man I love Mario Party.

well, the first few of them anyway.

@csl316: Yeah Dan, Tim and Andrew quickly became some of my favorite duders after watching a few Super Replays.

@wumbo3000:

We could do a Faces of Meth before/after to show the devastating effects of Mario Party.

Dan is a professional Mario Partier; that glove!

Edited by Dezinus

This is the saddest I've seen Jeff. This stream was wonderful.

Giant Bomb After Dark, best Giant Bomb.

Edited by Sbaitso

All these ersatz Mario characters really creep me out. They look like slightly deformed versions of themselves, but there's just something not quite right about them.

A picture is worth a thousand words

Yes

GB can't even handle Heel Dan right now. Thank you, Dan.
