Happy Unprofessional Fridays

Fantastic thumbnail. Jeff's face looks like it's trying to curl into itself.

Proof = 2 x %

40% alc/vol = 80 proof, 70% alc/vol = 140 proof.

Bitter Jeff FACE!

That thumbnail.......

Can Jeff smell Dan's beard all the way from there?

Posted by spiketail

Quality alcohol + @danryckert = Exactly what you expect. Mr. Ryckert, you are a monster. And it is always entertaining to watch or hear. Thank you!

A toast to unprofessionalism.

@bonechompski: What is the point of 'proof' when then % is just as easy to use?

Hookers is most definitely not Scotch. It's whiskey and has infected the bay area with it's off brand terrible shit for the last year or two at least. There was an article just this year, I believe from NYT that described these new house labels buying cheap whiskey from the corporation distilleries couldn't sell, only to re-bottle it and label it as some sort of "indie" small place. That's why whenever you buy whiskey from these places it tastes different. It's just bottom rung whiskey in a hispter bottle/label.

Hookers is one of those places or, at the very least, terrible at what they make called Whiskey.

WOW NBS street vol 2! Dan is the master at sending me on huge nostalgia trips!

Bookers is not 70 proof. It is 125 proof. It is also amazing

I really enjoyed the ColecoVision segment. Never really played one growing up since I had an Atari 2600, but it looks like it has some alright stuff (for the time). It's always fun listening to the guys talk about the "good old days" of gaming.

Halo 5 multiplayer looks awesome. Would like to try some of that. Hope the campaign is great, which is what I'm looking forward to the most.

Wow. Dan's beard is truly outrageous.

An overture is an instrumental introduction to an opera. Many films copied the idea.

Man EA Sports BIG was the best.

Wow, I loved NBA street 2, maybe my favorite sports game ever.

To ensure that the rum had not been watered down, it was "proved" by dousing gunpowder with it and then testing to see if the gunpowder would ignite.

Okay.

Rorie would play a viola.

Posted by Alex_Carrillo

I can't listen to Jeff or Dan speak about food or drinks because they are absolutely the worst human beings on the planet in regards to that stuff. Their palate never evolved passed middle school.

I want to throw things at them.

I'm sitting here with a screwdriver, watching UPF, *shocked* that @drewbert isn't into Belgian white/weiss beers. They're probably the kind of beer I can most easily tolerate, and also....well just look at Drew! Doesn't he seem like a guy who would enjoy a weiss beer? Maybe while wearing some sort of hat?

Street Vol. 2 is ONE OF THE BEST GAMES EVER MADE. I am confident in saying with all humility, that in my prime I was untouchable in that damn game.

YOU COULD HAVE A TEAM COMPOSED ENTIRELY OF MICHAEL JORDANS. '85 Super Dunking "I still wear my cool gold chain while playing" Jordan (with hair), 96' Jordan IN HIS PRIME, and '03 Wizards master 3-point shooter Jordan: AMAZING.

Great soundtrack, incredible gameplay, awesome roster of current and classic players, and so much style.

You could also play as Nelly and the entire St. Lunatics...which was the most early 2000's thing ever.

Also, that Pete Rock & CL Smooth "T.R.O.Y." title song is the best title screen song ever.

DAN. COAL IS NOT CHARCOAL. THEY ARE DIFFERENT THINGS.

70 proof isn't shit I'm sorry.

Posted by stealydan

I have exactly the opposite taste in beer as Drew. My favorites are wheats, blondes, and Hefeweizens. I also love fruity stuff like an Abita Purple Haze or a Shock Top raspberry.

The opposite end of the spectrum, like a Guinness, can also be great.

I am with Jeff though, IPAs are the absolute worst.

Posted by ripelivejam

i've been drinkin almost nothing but Shocktops lately. i'm terrible with beers though. would be nice to be an expert on something, but every goddamn thing has so much fucking minutae to it.

So did Dan murder a hitchhiker?

Edited by RavenStorm

Along with the Halo 5 reveal, I loved how the old ColecoVision games reminded me of VVVVVV, a great game that I recently played which has aesthetics and difficulty that are inspired by those old school 80's games that I never had the chance to play when they came out. I also really liked Jeff's exclamation and look of total frustration and hatred directed towards the character of Evil Otto, a surprisingly scary and unstoppable force of nature that we only caught a brief glimpse of in tonight's video.

"Evil Otto is a real motherfucker" Quote from Jeff.

Great UPF guys!

70 proof isn't shit I'm sorry.

I assume they were mixing up proof and percentage because he says 40 proof whiskey and thats just not a thing

Edited by ripelivejam

also 2:20 to wrestling reference (i think?)

holy fuck this drives me to drink.

Posted by Alsharrad

it's so unprofessional, it's posted by no one!

I am glad someone at 343 finally corrected the placement of there chross-hair. I still dont want to play a halo but its one more video game injustice finally corrected.

"this is so gross" -Dan Ryckert, 2014

Posted by Camelizer

@nonesun: Including both the actual % and the proof together actually has no meaning anymore. Proof used to be used as the indicator of % but now labels generally include the precise % so the continued use of stating an alcohols proof is mainly historical/tradition rather than necessary. Federal regulations only require that the % be included on the label. Proof doesn't indicate anything more than the %.

Posted by KDR_11k

70 proof? IIRC that translates to 35% ABV? That's like the lower end for liquor here. How's that too much?

NBA STREET VOLUME 2!!

ALL HAIL DAN RYCKERT!

Grimbergen Optimo Bruno. Now there is a goddamn beer.

HAHA! Yes. Drew not liking Hoegarden style beers is my favourite thing.

I went to San Francisco a few years ago and tried to get drunk on beer. It was impossible. Why does alcohol free beer exist when your actual beer is basically already 99% of the way there? I also couldn't find Irish Cider even when I went inside a bar that was purported to be Irish.

Edit: Is Dan -trying- to look like the main character from The Crew?

Posted by NathanXplosion

NBA Street Vol. 2 is one of my favorite games of all time. It broke my heart when EA got rid of the BIG brand.

Posted by DirkaMan

love how much drew flips the fuck out about mics being to loud when its not a big deal at all

Posted by ripelivejam

jeff's disdain throughout is a thing to behold.

Posted by andrewf87462

Well I hope one of Rorie's bosses doesn't watch this.

I have lived in California and various cities in Europe and I can attest to how terrible Americans are at drinking.

'03 Wizards master 3-point shooter Jordan: AMAZING.

Wait, what? No. Jordan is the greatest of all time, but outside shooting was probably the weakest part of his game in all eras -- but especially the Wizards years. He only took like 100 3s across both season with them, and made only 24% of them. Was that at least partially due to his mostly AWFUL teammates doing nothing at all to space the floor for him? Sure. But the only year you could claim he was a 'master' 3-point shooter is in that magical 96 season, when he shot 43% over around 250 attempts.

Who knew I'd ever get a chance to nerd out about the NBA on Giant Bomb?

Man what a bummer that halo 5 looks like a shitty COD knock off now.

What a fucking waste of 10+ years and so much money building a unique franchise.

Might as well be a DLC add on for COD at this point.

Jeff's gin face returns!!

Posted by fisk0

Even with that $60 price tag, I really want that Colecovision machine. That WWII air combat game looked hella rad.

Also, I really liked the look of Halo 5. Too many FPSes don't model the player character at all, this didn't only do that, but had the player character cast shadows on the gun. That looked incredibly fucking great.
