He's like 10 times worse than DarksydePhil (from YouTube) is at MGS, lol.

Oh man, I just started this and I'm already excited to see Drew die a bunch. Finally, someone other than Brad that sucks at a game! :P

Alright guys. I think we've discovered the actual reason Dan Ryckert dislikes anime. Patlabor is to blame.

Seriously though, he should really check out Patlabor 2: The Movie. If he likes the crazy political/military based drama that the MGS series has then that movie should be right up his alley.

So the clips were from Patlabor? I should check it out sometime. And I thought that Dan may like Ghost in the Shell because it has a mix of military, politics, and philosophy that's somewhat similar to MGS.

Nah. But if you show someone mecha with "POLICE" painted on it, Patlabor is going to jump to mind before anything else.

I see Breaking Drew has continued. I can't wait for the inevitable super cut off all his deaths.

Edited by shockmamba

Ah this series is amazing! I really hope Drew ends up playing all of MGS :D

If I know Kojima, those clips were probably from his previous game Policenauts. Has anyone here played that, or his other game Snatcher?

EDIT: Spoilers for later games, but was Dr Clark retconned to be a female, or was the use of "he" a mistranslation here?

I don't care what Dan says MGS is anime

"Are you an otaku too?"

"She's got a very cute behind."

This is a bad game. Makes for a great video series though.

I had soooooo many problems with this fight the first time I played the game. I think that's pretty normal. Took me at least this long.

1:23:45 Never forget.

I like these guys together so much. This thing alone justifies Dan's hiring and then some.

I mean, who could enunciate "NU-CU-LAR" so beautifully other than him, Dubya and Homer Simpson?

Edited by Oddballs

Codec Dan and Drew is a nice touch.

This series is getting better and better!

Loving the face-cam footage and the green tint.

Dan/Drew is my new favourite duo.

Edited by extragingerbrew

Drew: first and foremost I am really enjoying watching you play. However it would be super beneficial for you to become more comfortable and proficient with controlling Snake. You must be able to sneak up behind a solider, stop , and choke him out. Do you know you can lean up against a surface and have Snake hit the wall. making a sound that alerts the guard(s) to investigate that particular spot. This tactic is useful in getting around guards or drawing them to where you want to choke them out. You should try and use first person view mode more often to see your options. Also try practicing using the laser sight on the SOCOM. It will auto track a moving target. Did you find the silencer yet? Is Dan allowing you to practice maybe on the first section of the game? Maybe try several attempts to choke out guards, use chaff grenades, choke out and move enemies. Your confidence and enjoyment will make the game more fun if you can control Snake with ease. Really enjoying this series!

Great episode, Drew is so unlucky!

I always found it easier to aim Nikita Missles with the First Person View mode.

Can't wait for 0005.

I love that out of all the people, Drew, the audience, it's Dan thats literally having the most fun.

SEEING DAN WINCE FROM WANTING TO SAY STUFF IS AMAZING. CODEC CAM IS THE BEST INVENTION.

That scene is indeed from Policenauts. I used to have it a while back - basically a point-and-click adventure with lots of cutscenes, some shooting, and a big debt to Lethal Weapon and Blade Runner if I remember right. It was actually pretty good and very detailed.

I barely knew Japanese but I know it involved pharmaceutical companies and basically having to kill all your former partners after waking from a coma. Also, Meryl appears in it, and apparently the Policenauts/Snatcher universe is not the same as MGS, but the little robot in Snatcher shows up as Metal Gear Mk.2 in MGS4...Actually, I think that's what it was called in Snatcher!

My copy was stolen later...I wish they'd re-release it.

Posted by Echozs

"it's just like one of my Japanese animes". What a perfect line.

Posted by Sarumarine

This is still fantastic. I think this is the first time I've seen Drew lose it on camera. Haha. Hang in there Solid Scanlon! It's not over yet!

Posted by ZedsDeadBaby

This is just the best thing going right now. Thanks for the codec/face cams. <3

This is fucking gold LOL

Dan pissing himself. Oh god i love this.

Posted by Y2JBone

Amazing episode guys! The addition of the cameras is a great touch too.

Posted by Edmundus

@xel: Clark's gender was retconned, yes.

Love this series of videos! made me dig out my original copy of Metal Gear Solid from storage

Posted by joelalfaro

This is the STUPIDIEST game ever. I really liked mgs2 and 3 but seeing this.. wow! Love these videos guys, keeep em coming!

Posted by ELpork

Fallin in love with this content. Dan and Drew work well together, and am looking forward to more!


Also, I watched this on my Wii U... I... It's the most use I've gotten out of it in a while...

Posted by Murdoc_

Eh, I didn't want to see the duders, its distracting.

Posted by Oddballs

I'm only part way through the episode, and if they don't figure it out I'm sure someone else has already commented about this, but to get Nastasha's weapon talk you need to have the weapon equipped before you call her.

Posted by FoxMulder

I wasn't too keen on Dan the first couple weeks he started at GB, but this series is really making me like this guy!

Posted by CharlesAlanRatliff

Oh, man.

Posted by CustomOtto

I'm glad they put a camera on Dan so I could see all the ridiculous faces he makes during this.

Posted by hmoney001

Zero Drew Thirty!

This is to good. #anime

Posted by kawiji

At the end (when Drew got to the last phase before the electric shield) I was just shouting "CHAFF GRENADES!" at the screen.

Posted by antime

Drew, don't listen to Dan's lies, you absolutely want to use the analog controls.

Let's back that statement up a minute. You're comparing Drew's performance against DSP. Drew gets his hands on this once every couple of days. Even so, he appears to be enjoying the game, appreciating the nuance of it, the story (crazy as it is) and usually blaming himself for any mistakes he makes.

By comparison to DSP, well, it's not quite the same is it? It's not the same when DSP constantly blamed the game for his own faults (he fought Sniper Wolf multiple times without ANY Diazepam and moaned the whole way through that the boss fight was too hard and the camera and controls were awful...) and, let's not forget, he had already played MGS 2 & 3 prior to his playthrough of MGS1, so he had about a good 15+ hrs of experience on what a MGS game is before going into it and yet still sucked at it. That's also without mentioning him bitching about the dialogue, talking over cutscenes and thus not knowing what to do or where to go, looking up his stream chat to hold his hand the whole way through the game and the racist jokes when Mei Ling was on.

What I'm trying to say is, Drew's playthrough is infinitely more enjoyable to watch and in a way, more charming because of any setbacks he has. DSP's just a manchild who you wanted to punch through the screen.

OF COURSE DAN RYCKERT HAD DRINKS IN HIS HOUSE WITH A RUSSIAN MOBSTER WHO REGALED DAN WITH STORIES ABOUT HIS KILLS. OF COURSE HE DID.

just another Tuesday in Casa de Ryckert. The best part was his dad moved into that house after him.

Yea hearing that didn't actually surprise me that much.

Oh gawd I love Dan.

That was awesome!

The comedic timing and all.

Posted by Sessh

I'm glad you finally added in video of yourself, because the reactions are just great.

Still really loving this series.

Posted by NeoCalypso

I'm seriously hoping even if they don't keep going right away that they do the entire series.

Edited by pyromagnestir

This series has become Breaking Drew.

Posted by Grillbar

@danryckert people have properly said it already but the thing with Nastasha, as far as i can remember you have to equip the weapon you want her to give you info about

Huh, did they miss the thermal goggles? That really helps in this fight.

I was thinking the same thing.

Yeah, Drew currently doesn't have the Thermal Goggles. He didn't pick them up the first time in the Tank Hangar. Which he naturally wouldn't know about. But he might have found it if he wasn't on camera and took his time to explore though.

I may be wrong but I think you can only get the thermal goggles in the tank hanger if you take the top duct into the building, otherwise the door is permanently closed and is level 4.
