I've been enjoying Die Another Friday, but I do hope the next series involves the whole crew playing something.

Anyone else having an issue playing this on the Roku app? It tells me I need to link my premium account, but it's already linked and I can watch all the other premium videos just fine.

This is a boring series that has gone on way too long. Alexy Quest is 10 times more entertaining because there is a story to follow and interesting characters.

Oh, OK. Thanks. It's cool that you can now put up the video even if parts aren't done.

I too am loving this series, but I'm hoping for something more narrative focused. Like more narrative focused than Mass Effect even. Something with video. Video in full motion.

I hope you all know, Dan, Vinny, Abby, even you Mike Mahardy (sp?) that the ending of this video might be the funniest thing i've ever seen in my whole damn life. People reading these comments please finish this video to the end because it really TRUUULY is worth it!

RE: modern classics - These are the games in Glitchwave's top 50 from this decade:

2. Bloodborne

4. Dark Souls

7. Breath of the Wild

17. Persona 5

18. Witcher 3

23. Super Mario Oddysey

30. Hollow Knight

36. Yakuza 0

43. Portal 2

47. Super Mario Galaxy 2

49. Nier: Automata

More recent games will always have less user ratings and heavier adoption from series fans, but overall a convincing list.

Is it just this level or did the brightness levels on the gameplay get screwed up since the last DAF? I can barely make out anything. Prior videos weren't that dark (even dark levels).

Oh god, the way Dan says "Die Another Friday" after Vinny tells him to be more energetic had me in stitches. I love this series.

This new system where VODs go up immediately but then it takes a 6+ hours for download links to appear doesn't quite work for me :( I realize I'm probably one of the few users that downloads the video in order to watch it but I used to be able to watch streams one or two hours after they'd finished. Now it feels like it can take up to half a day for the download to become available. It's a little bit of a bummer but I understand the fact live shows are now instantly streamable probably benefits the majority of users...

Were they uploading the encoded versions of videos manually before? Because if so, and if this means they hit stop on a stream and leave the office after an afternoon stream (like DAF/UPF) immediately, then this new system is for the best obviously to save them the time! But my knowledge of how this stuff works is like zero so I'm not sure whether that's accurate at all or not.

Watching the pre-show for this I guess I never realized before that Dan and Mike knew each other from way back. It's really astounding how everyone in the videogame coverage side of the industry knows each other or is a friend of someone you know.

Clearly it's all Mike's fault, the only time Dan doesn't make progress is when he's on.

Not trying to be rude or anything but isn't it better if Abby fixes the brightness/gamma instead of Vinny that's on camera. If she doesn't know how, maybe teach her?

Somewhat amusingly, I didn't remember this map the entire time, until they turned the brightness up and all of a sudden I remember it all.

@curufinwe: I like these skill-based series because I can just listen to the banter in the background. I particularly want to hear the Mass Effect story again.

Bret Hart was in the Lonesome Dove TV series in the 90s, not the original miniseries from the 80s with Robert Duvall and Tommy Lee Jones. The miniseries is fantastic and well worth watching for fans of westerns.

im genuinely shocked people can think breath of the wild is the best game of all time. I have so many issues with it and the game itself has several problems.

BOTW as one of the best games of all time? Ok. Sure, it's great but dunno if I'd go that far. THE best?!??!?! Dan you're crazy. It's good, but goddamn, it's just Far Cry with a Zelda skin.

Opinions and to each to own, but BOTW game of all time? Let's get a few years removed before we declare things like that. Also, Bioshock 1 over infinite any day.

I think from just an influential standpoint, Skyrim gets up there on the list. And some may hate it, but Modern Warfare should be considered one of the most influential games ever.

Dan did so well in the first run even after shooting the scientist, then just collapsed and kind of gave up? He seems to do that a lot. Especially noticed it with the Metal Gears.

Lots of opinions here for modern classics! Instead of picking apart their choices (but bioshock infinite really is a bad video game) I’ll nominate Dark Souls because it is incredible to play even 8 years later.
