I wonder when Ben will learn that sometimes you just have to bail on a level and run for the stairs. Monsters that multiply faster than you can kill them is certainly one of those moments, being blinded at the same time doubly so.

It was good of Genji-Gloves to quit when they realised nobody was watching and go back up to the surface to start again.

The best part of this video is when Ben bragged about not holding down any keys last run and then immediately held down a key.

The best Rogue fact is that Yendor is just Rodney spelled backwards.

Editing to say Vinny's drunk voice sounds suspiciously like Johnny V after a week of E3.

Ben keeps giving monsters free hits by insisting to not move diagonally.

Well, at least we got to hear the story of Rogue. Shame how it ended, of course.

I thought Vinny was doing that off the top of his head for a minute there.

Do we know what he was reading from?

@numaroth: I imagine it's something that was written in opening of the original manual, certainly a major trend for games of the era.

And perhaps Ben heard it on the podcast he referenced, but so far I don't think they've addressed the NAME of the Amulet of Yendor in any of the Going Rogue episodes. "Yendor" is "Rodney" spelled backwards.

Ah, the joys of drinking unknown potions midcombat. Once again, I’d like to stress that only 2 of the potion types are healing, and the other like 10 are negative status effects or minor benefits that will not save you midcombat.

I love this series so much. A part of me is sad, however, we will never get a feature in which Vinny and Ben try 13 runs in Dungeons of Dredmor

IIRC that's also the default if you leave the player name blank.

There was a moment at the beginning where I thought the entire episode was going to be an epilogue. But I’m grateful for the fart jalopy this turned out to be.
