Uh, guys, if you were watching the intro demo you would have noticed that you can just jump the baseball slide from the first robot.

Dan was just off this episode..."he swoops four times right?" while moving all the way to the right of the screen while Vinny is on the left.

Not sure about the switch to Ray, he's definitely weaker than Sheena. Ray seems only better for Noiman just because Vinny doesn't have to worry on the helecopter bit but if he had Sheena and her homing laser it'd be the same thing.

And Vinny said he wasn't feeling it at the start of this episode? Whatever he was feeling, he needs to bottle that shit, they'll be done in no time.

Dan seems to have some real issues reading the patterns of that jumping stomp boss that he just has to work out. The key to the ostrich like thing is stay closeish.

I can't be the only one who had to rewind the death multiple times. Not to see the death itself again, but to carefully study everyone's faces.

Abby goes from high anticipation, disappointment to pure raging joy in a matter of seconds. It's one of the most amazing Giant Bomb moments ever. While I think the way Jan's death played out was funnier in terms of the steps (waking up, walking through Ben's piss etc. as well as the fact it was the first), this one was three episodes in the making and the release was incredible.

I'm really not sure we will get anything that amazing in this series again, but damn I can't wait to see them try.

Had this on last night in the background and a video with Ryan popped which reminded me how great he was.

Would be cool if there was a way for live streams and latest content to interrupt these streams or (in the case of latest content) queue up after the video that is playing.

@comradesolar: Haha, beautiful. I still have to catch up on the Waypoint X-Com stream but it's great so far.

Ah nice they beat the halfway boss finally.

Seriously how long is this game?

This is demoralizing lol

Looking at a guide, they're going the D route which seems the best route...it's just the longest. They got up to the second last level...

So I just read a guide and it looks like they're pretty much on the path of ending D which is the best ending...but also the hardest.

With that in mind, I think we should set up a pool as to how many episodes this will be...

@wobblysnake: I can't decide if this is part of the entertainment or not but they really should write down the next thing they planned to do since they all have awful memories and terrible sense of direction.

@nmckee503: nope, you don't even need to duck. And with their concentrated fire power the rocks won't even touch them... makes me wonder if they could farm lives that way actually.

Vinny spoke about doing this after someone showed him an image in the comments, they just haven't done it, probably because Vinny doesn't use shot 2, but more likely they've just forgot.

Yeah, I've been wondering why they haven't been doing that instead.

Even more bizarre is the fact that they'll often take the right wall, but they'll use the ceiling to get over to the left side of the boss as it's dangling on the ceiling, seemingly unaware that it just makes more sense to say on the right side.

Anyway, Dan and/or Vinny, I provided detailed information about the Deadeye Joe battle in the comments for Part 10, but I'll summarize them here:

Phase 1: Your shots cause the boss to rotate. When it's about to shoot, stop shooting it to make its shots more predictable.

Phase 2: Pay attention to the boss' tip to get a rough idea as to which way its laser will travel. Each time it rolls up and down the incline, the way the tip is pointing changes.

Phase 3: STOP SHOOTING WHEN IT'S ABOUT TO SHOOT. It's mindblowing that you two don't notice this, but the laser comes OUT OF THE BOSS, and the boss only moves left and right if you're shooting it. If the boss is ERRATICALLY MOVING LEFT AND RIGHT as you're shooting it, then it may be a good idea to STOP SHOOTING THE BOSS. When the boss is shooting, just focus on dodging by using the ceiling and floor to stay ahead of the laser.

It seems like they're a couple of episodes ahead so even if they are reading (really handy) comments like this one, they aren't likely to be applied until a couple more episodes from now.

It does kind of astonish me that they haven't noticed the laser comes from the direction of the eye in phase 2 though, that seems like pretty basic stuff.
