Someone somewhere is frantically scribbling down notes for a fanfic that has Ben as Vinny's grandpa

I never connected the dots that Rogue-like means there is a Rogue. Time to learn me some history!

Wonderful start by throwing the bow at the enemy instead of firing arrows! I think I'll enjoy this series.

Tried to guess if Vinny just suddenly started playing Assassin's Creed Rogue for a series or if they started Rogue Legacy 2 series for some reason. Rogue being...Rogue was a fun surprise!

Also not sure if this is some odd thing happening just for me, but the audio keeps cutting off at times and I need to skip around the video to get it back.

Oh boy, going back to the classics.

Surely the single most influential game ever released? Though of course Nethack is far better.

This sort of reminds me of the old GB let's plays with Dave, Vinny and others playing old PC rpg's and Dwarf fortress and stuff like that.

Use my username Ben. It is easy to type, and I guess that's important somehow.

A few rules of thumb that would have saved your life:

1) Clear out floors before going deeper since you're missing out on easier xp/items.

2) If more than one monster is hitting you, retreat backwards into a chokepoint where you can fight one at a time.

3) If you have to run away, run into explored areas not new ones.

I didn't know I wanted a premium series consisting of Vinny and Ben playing Rogue but now I'm going to need it every day until Ben wins.
