Maybe the real Amulet of Yendor is the friends we make along the way.

Sadly I wasn't able to watch it live, but it's been a fun ride. If I were to give a tip, it would be not to rest so close to the room entryway. You'd want to have a lot of space between you and an any enemy that might appear. And I don't know about multiplayer Rogue, but there is a multiplayer version of the classic roguelike Angband, imaginatively called MAngband that's still in active development.

So long Ben, you're going out on a high note!

@summerofblake: Yeah, the most frustrating thing about this player sometimes. At least if it's non-premium I can use Youtube player and it's fine. But then at times it's perfectly flawless, runs at HTML5 auto just fine, full HD, no buffering, etc.

But regarding this episode, we all knew that was going to happen right? The most perfect ending.

Scrubbing through the timeline did not prepare me for H :D H.

@pm_xenos: The real amulet were the hobgoblins we made along the way.

Ben leaving on a high note. O7

But it's VERY funny to me that the practice run is still the one that got the deepest.

A classic! It'd be cool if someone else picked up the torch for Ben and tried to play through either Rogue or another classic roguelike.

"Was there a two-parter?"-- Brad, on the difference between run and episode numbering.

Oh Brad. Oh that's not how this series works.

I think it would be fun if another staff member gave it 13 shots and kept going till it gets beaten or till everyone got their shot.

Turns out, the real amulet was the intros we got along the way.

Thanks so much, Ben. Sad to see you go, but happy for you, starting a new chapter in life ... or, dare I say it, a new run.

Good job, Ben. Like Abby, you went out with a bang, fitting for a website called Giant Bomb.

Centaur is confused, lets wait until it is not confused.

time to goddamn kill the thing when its confused OR completely run away.

Worst thing you could do would be.. .stay around until its not confused anymore, just sitting around waiting it to recover.

playing the game like British rules, i'll just wait untill you catch your breath, take your time centaur sorry about the confusion, lets fight fair.

Was this Ben's going away stream? Dan and Abby got a proper going away stream even Vinny got a 5hr pizza party stream when he left GB West so why didn't Ben get one, little disappointing TBH but anyway good luck Ben.
