I was expecting Drew or Patrick for this game for some reason.

But yeah, I saw this game a couple weeks ago and it seemed pretty freaking rad.

This looks the kind of game I'd play while listening to Cascadian black metal and getting massively stoned. Since I don't want to do either, no thanks.

tis akin to a nihilistic proteus..

I'm down... I guess.

Eidolon is indeed a Greek concept for an apparition or an idol, and I think it was Walt Whitman who brought it to "modern" literature...

Yes, listening to Vinny still fills me with glee. And also, I actually loved Alex here too... NYC Bomb is my kind of bomb.

Eidolons is a Walt Whitman poem. Thats what the poems during loading are :P

That was probably the most relaxing ending to a QL ever. He was slowly dying, but you didn't feel sad for him...you felt happy that he was going to a better place. He was ready to die and he didn't want it any other way.

Every time I see the word Eidolon, which is not very often to be fair, I get confused and think of Eiledon by Big Country.

I was waiting for someone to tell me what this game actually is.

MOTHUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUU!

I'd ask Vinny to narrate my life but I'm afraid it's not even remotely interesting enough to subject him to that.

I'm dying Vinny.

Alex a lone wolf lost in a forest, wounded, running in a circles and eating all the mushrooms. Makes you think...

Instead of awful lumberjack shirt rock, I was getting Richard Thompson on the Grizzly Man soundtrack.

Bought the game yesterday and it's Proteus with teeth although the more I play it I think I prefer Proteus *without* teeth.

Man, I love all this new GBNY content and the chemistry between Alex and Vinny. Their videos have become my favorite thing. I also think Dan Ryckert kinda sucks...but he's also kind of amazing...yeah, I love that guy too. He's a great addition, I think.

These are great times to be a GB fan. Interesting game by the way, I might mess around with it for a while.

Hey Vinny I laughed.

I'm not too far into the quick look but if there is an actual progression to this rather than sort of just wandering, I'm definitely interested. I'm always for obtuse objectives.

Yea Hyperion is the shit! That book is the equivalent of Zardoz in terms of bizzare sci-fi.

I had to do a double-take on what you had written. For a split second I thought it read as "Cardassian black metal" which sounds hilarious.

This is the sort of thing I could chill playing, say on a rainy Sunday morning. Hopefully I'll remember when I have the time.

Seems like something I could get into if I ever stop playing Don't Starve and don't move to The Forest instead.

Man, it feels like an age since we last had a Vinny QL. Aren't they having to move into a new office already or something? If so then it's no surprise why the GBEAST content output has dropped a little lately.

@yummylee: We haven't moved again yet, but we did have to rejigger a bunch of our studio around after equipment (finally!) started showing up. Vinny's been hard at work getting all that set-up, and I think we're pretty close to done.

Awesome! And just to be safe I didn't mean to sound as if I'm insinuating any sort of laziness on your part, as if anything I'd say it's been mighty impressive at how much stuff you've both been able to record given the circumstances.

Anywhoo I look forward to when you guys are again in a more comfortable position to start churning out more QLs, as you two have quickly shot up to becoming my favourite QL duo.

...I was commenting in regards to how they were basically uploading a QL a day, not to mention a few live-streams, weeks back.
