There were some really bad audio and video issues during the stream and Drew had to break it up into pieces to archive it. He said the fully archived version should have no problems and intact audio.

Guys...its only 23 mins long! What happened to the rest of the video?

Read above. The livestream had to be reset several times because of audio/video issues.

The pages of people that tell the guys how to beat this boss is going to be SO much fun to read.

Well, this is a pleasant surprise!

Posted by Homeslice

Expect parts 4, 5, etc (or 3B, 3C, etc.) to follow. But for heaven's sake, don't get your hopes up.

Oh man, Vinny really needs to play Castlevania 3 already. Castlevania 3 is to Castlevania 1 as SMB3 is to SMB1. Arguably. Kinda.

Rinse. Repeat. Forever.

Now we can find out what that "big news" actually was.

Edited by HammondofTexas

"We'll be out of here by 2:15" - Vinny

Hahahahahaha! If only they knew!

Vinny gave those Mummys knives, like UH UH UH UH UH.

"You know Caravella likes it sloppy" - Vinny

Damn. 3 hours.

Mostly true. Castlevania 3 was the shit.

For some reason can't get HTML 5 (High or HD) to play. Just frozen at 00:00 / 2:54:40

Finally i can find out what the big news was.

Edit: and what a news it was.

Posted by StoneGut

I'm equally excited and worried that this is 3hrs long :)

Posted by gkhan

Brad said that I'm "really bringing it" for my chat questions. Later he said that I discussion I was having about NES era random number generators was "interesting".

This is literally the greatest accomplishment of my entire life.

Here we go again!

I love how Brad misread my (and pretty much everyone else's) advice, thus making it sound completely fucking stupid.

Well, anyway Dracula seems to have won, so just move on to Simon's Quest. He's already dead there.

Also, do we have confirmation on Jeff encountering the shit bandit on his extended toilet break?

Posted by karmaghost

Oh man, I never got a notification this was starting! I feel like I missed out.

Posted by Vuud

Drac is whack.

Posted by Sarumarine

Just rename it Breaking Giant Bomb guys. It would make this video totally more honest. Haha.

Anyways, I hope that this doesn't just put the breaks on VinnyVania. It would be cool to see you guys move through the other games. I haven't been up on my Castlevania for a long time.

Posted by Veektarius

@sarumarine: Likewise. I'm more interested in a comprehensive/extended look at the series than seeing each of them beaten in full.

Next Castlevania game is going to have the iWatch power-up.

Also glad to see the NES was so forward-thinking to include proprietary Microsoft wireless protocols n'ere conceived, let alone the USB standard not even widely prototyped 'till around a decade later.

Edited by Sammo21

Not really sure why Vinnie keeps going for the holy water when its 100% useless in the dracula fight...also, he reacts poorly to Dracula showing up, he walks through him instead of turning around.

3 hours??

I read everything verbatim. Maybe it was just bad advice.

@zygoatsalami: I kept re-watching that part just for Jeff's smile at the end of it. Made me laugh so hard.

Edited by Fobwashed

I just tried to beat him myself and pretty much got my head bashed in. http://www.twitch.tv/fobwashed/b/524850273 . I was watching them for hours last night just thinking, man... that shit looks like it'd be easy. It ain't. I really ain't.

In closing.

I told you that Vinny can use the boomerang on ground level to get rid of Dracula's projectiles and so wouldn't hit the candles, leaving the one with the holy water in it safe. You said: "Sessh says to use the boomerang because it won't hit the candles. Hm, that seems wrong."

You did correct yourself about the ground level part a few minutes later, though.

I didn't want to be mean or something by the way, I just thought it was funny.

Edited by Strife777

I wasn't there for the stream. You're telling me Brad was me for a while?

Sweet.

Late edit: Sleepy Jeff is distracting. I can't help but watch him struggle to stay awake!

Posted by Mister_V

Well at least it wasn't Brad who fell asleep on a livestream this time.

Posted by MrCHUP0N

SLEEPY JEFF

Posted by Meepasaurus

It's painful because it totally seems doable, but the controls for the game are SO BAD.

Posted by Glottery

Can't blame Jeff dozing off...I really want them to be done with this already and move on to more adventures. Can't personally wait for Super Castlevania!

Edited by Humanity

I loved this clutch moment

Posted by Shoeless

Burning question, who has better bat tech, Caravella or Lang?

Posted by Gyrfal

That moment when Brad finds out about 2nd form projectiles. Jeff's smile. THE BEST!

Posted by Thiago123

Still don't like that they are going with VinnyVania rather than the far superior Castlevella. Just bring on Simon's Quest.

Edited by LoktarOgar

Was this live and did I somehow miss a 3 hour liveshow?

Posted by Nightriff

@loktarogar: It was Live yesterday, little notice as always

Posted by EmuPrime

17 minutes into a 3 hour video:

Vinny: "I don't even want to be here any more."

This is going to be great.

Posted by BaconGames

This really drives home why I think Castlevania is straight up a bad game. The jump is garbage, the stairs are garbage, the enemies can be cheap as hell especially with the player knockack, the bossfights can be cheesed and are frustrating otherwise, and lastly Dracula sucks rocks like a mother.

It's fascinating to review in retrospect and its place in history is cemented but fuck this game.

Just open VinnyVania Part 4 with a youtube video of someone beating Dracula and be like "Way to go Vinny! I guess that wasn't total goddamn bullshit after all. Let's start Simon's Quest."

Let the sweet lie set us free

Posted by hollitz

I'll be interested to see what the GB crew makes of the credits when Vinny finally kills ole' Drac.

In particular who "plays" the monsters.

those are all reasons why its good actually

Edited by SuperJoe

This was my first NES game and it took me months to beat Dracula, not to mention reach the castle, so Vinny's doing pretty well considering it's only his third day playing. His timing is just off, plus an LCD monitor and XBOX d-pad are delaying his reaction times.

Not sure how interesting Simon's Quest will be to watch. It's mostly gonna be Vinny running around lost while the chat screams conflicting information.
