I think it's time for Dan to be demoted to the minors. Call up Abby!

They were so ashamed how fast they died they left 4 mins of black screen on the end of the video so it would have a longer display time

Just try the old way! I think you can get into the rhythm. I think it's possible.

@danfess: They should collect the orbs, but instead of an animal, Dan transforms into Abby.

Dan secretly loves Altered Beast and keeps throwing so he can keep playing.

It's the only plausible explanation.

Do the orbs ever disappear? They(Dan) chase them as if they're gonna go away, taking dumb risks.

Easily my favorite episode so far.

This is the first time I've ever seen Dan experience shame.

It's not Dan's fault, those holes can be tricky the first time you play through the game.

There wasn't supposed to be a run today anyway, so this doesn't count.

Also, Vinny was right: the game cheated and gave only one set of wolves on the second loop in Stage 3, then three sets of wolves on the third loop.

ETA: On the part where Dan's falling, I'm finding that it's better to jump to the third, rightmost ledge as soon as you can and let the wolves come to you. You avoid a lot of possible enemy collisions/falling that way.

Wow, what a trip. You've fallen to padding episodes now, huh? This series has been trailing downward, but that's no reason to descend to this level. I hope you guys understand the gravity of this decision and reconsider your hole approach.

The fact that your collision box is wider when falling backwards from being hit, and then immediately narrows back down when you stand up has cost them a LOT of lives, over the course of this series.

Check out that collision detection gorn at 6:16.

Did you know the javelins from Anthem were inspired by animal forms in Altered Beasts?

I had to switch this video to HTML5 from Progressive to get it to play. Not sure why. Weird.

Daylight Savings Time is like pennies: no one gives a shit until someone talks about taking it away. Then suddenly our civilization will crumble in flames if we never again Spring Ahead.

I predicted on Friday that they'd beat it within the next week... I may have been too optimistic.

That said, loving this series, keep at it! Onward to better things!

I love the padded runtime to throw us off of their sudden poor showmanship. I also love how much they haaaaate this terrible game. I also ALSO love that this could go on longer than Hard Corps.

Bring in an Altered Beast pro, hide him under the desk, and pretend Dan is suddenly playing flawlessly.

I've had a ton of issue since this new video stuff they've been doing. The most reliable thing about Giant Bomb is great content in a shitty player.
