I'm loving the guest as a fresh perspective. And I completely agree that Community was the best show for the first two seasons, and about half of season three. I recently rewatched it for the first time since it aired a decade ago and it's so good, it kind of ruined comedies for me because nothing has come close.

OMG, I’m not really familiar with Ron’s work but he’s prob my favourite guest they’ve ever had on. He’s super fun, meshes extremely well with the others and really owns his own takes on the topics. What a great episode (and I’m only midway through it)! Please guest during GOTY Ron! =D

Its so fuckin weird hearing the negative VR tone on this site, this is what VR needs if its to be taken seriously as a viable gaming option. Of course people cant play it now, they dont have VR, because games like this arent a thing. Its gonna look a lot more appealing for me and other without VR when these games get made.

Whoa Ron Funches that's amazing. I was huge into the comedy scene a few years ago, before Ron got into sitcoms, and I loved listening to him. I looked him up recently and wow he lost a lot of weight! I'm super proud of him it looks like he put a crap ton of work into himself.

The only thing I've seen Ron in (besides the occasional commercial) was Powerless and thought he was hilarious in that.

Getem Ron, glad to hear GB called out some on those GOTY choices. I don't mind the choices, everyone is entitled to their own opinions. It's just they path they take to get there that annoys me to high hell. Dan hates a game that everyone else loves so it must be the worst game of the year. :(

As soon as I saw that Ron was a guest the description I knew this was going to be an awseome episode. Beastcast really brings it in regards to guests, and this is on another level. He had a great vibe for the podcast. I really really hope he comes on again, and soon.

Oh hell yeah, Ron Funches! That dude is awes-

Shits all over Outer Wilds.

I HATE RON FUNCHES WE CAN'T BE BOYS NOW!

(Not really he's great but c'mon Ron! Outer Wilds is fucking great!)

Edit: Ugh, Community talk. So depressing. Those first three seasons were magical.

I had no idea who Ron Funches even was before listening to this, but I totally agree with the statement that he should join them for Game of the Year deliberations. Hilarious episode so far.
