We've found these levels, we might as well finish them!
Can we break Brad Shoemaker's will and send him packing? We put him up against some difficult video games to find out.

What other game besides Mario will Brad play this time
These are always some of my favourite streams on the site. A third of the way through this one now and there have already been so many good moments. Also, Jan’s camera switching is so on point in this one and there are so many moments of good comedic timing - Jan, you rule. Love y’all.
This game is bad and not fun. Brad should just play Zelda 2 the next time. He can switch to SMB2j when he gets bored.
Here, we're just seein' the same stuff over 'n' over - due to poor design, not really Brad. I know Brad throwing his head against a wall is part of the series, but with the other titles, there's an actual challenge to be overcome, not kitchen-sink kaizo bullshit - success depends on strategizing & reflexes, challenges that it's satisfying to see someone tackle & solve, not simple luck & repetition.
There's so much more fun in the City Connection & Gradius segments. Like, wow. An actual game on screen.

I love all these old games being played on the site. Persevere and continue the NES play throughs.

@brad You're too pensive, man. You just gotta give in and go with the flow. Don't stop for nothin'.
Talking about who Danny Devito should play in the Nintendo movie and Detective Pikachu didn't even cross anyone's mind. So disappointed.
We want a 2 hour stream of Jeff playing City Connection. The people, they demand it!
Brad’s unwillingness to flow makes it harder on himself. A lot of these levels were not designed for Mario to stop.
Ben how dare you besmirch Marisa Tomei.
Also you always go under Bowser, it’s science!
I would be really curious to find out what the development story was for this game. It is vindictive toward the player in a way Mario games simply aren't.
Earthworm Jim was never good
who the fuck is out here saying Paper Mario isn't Mario? I will fight them
brad really plays the most conservatively cautious version of mario bros i've ever seen, haha
i didn't think there was any way to play super mario bros but to be holding down the run button the entire time

I personally had a lot of fun with that game when I was a kid, but I bet it would be a less than fun experience nowadays...
This is a horror game. But no seriously, they need to make a new 2D Mario that has the production values and sensibility of 3D World and Odyssey, two masterpieces in my opinion. I'd even take (a joke made at the time of NSMB2 on 3DS) a so-called New Super Mario USA...that could be amazing – and especially fix some of the things I found sort of boring about it (adding suits/power-ups of games like SMB3 and beyond.)

I think they are really making a mistake playing the NES version instead of the All Stars version, considering the requirements for unlocking the extra levels are much more steep in the NES than All Stars version.

Some super player plays throughout.
I believe in Brad, IBIB all day. But not sure if Brad always believes in himself.

Brad was breaking real soon into this one - I tuned out after a while so I hope he wasn’t a complete wreck by the 2 hr mark!
I hope with 2020 Jeff and gang will completely stop streaming old NES games and exclusively play original Xbox titles. Give us that Jet Set Radio Future playthrough the people deserve Jeff!
Sweet! I just watched the first episode tonight and was happy to see the second one was already here! Good luck Brad!
Once you realize that a well designed Mario level is basically a rhythm game it becomes a lot easier.
Brad I believe in you.
Brad cannot be broken.

If it's possible, @janman should have a counter for when he beats a level so we get a win/death ratio at the end.

Ho boy, this is a harrowing feature. I was on the edge of my seat for some of the later high stakes platforming. It's a nice fit for Breaking bad, I think.
I'd love for them to give some love to Zelda 2 at some point, I like that game a bunch. Not sure if it fits the Breaking Brad label though.
@jeff Don't preheat your oven for frozen pizza, preheating is for suckers.
Unfortunately, this Danish actor is dead but he would have made an excellent Wario.
Holy shit the City Connection run over a cat noise is the sound LaserTime used on its youtube channel!
thank you Brad, I've had a rough week and watching you suffer through this game made me smile.
I think some people in this thread are too accustomed to seeing this game through speedruns and don't understand what it's like to play it when you haven't dedicated a good chunk of your life to it.
Brad found a fairly easy to get invisible block 1up in 4-1 then completely ignored it?

This video inspired me to fan cast a live action Mario movie and here it is don't at me:
Mario: Daryl SabaraLuigi: Larry ThomasBowser: Dwayne The Rock JohnsonPeach: Starr AndrewsWario: Danny DeVitoWaluigi: Johnny KnoxvilleYoshi (Voice): Jack McBrayer
Gotta say, I wish we’d stop switching games in the feature. I enjoy the persistence about Breaking Brad and I just lose all momentum when Brad just quits to play 5 minutes of another game. I’m finding it super annoying. If you don’t want to play this game, maybe let’s just not play it?
I know I’m nitpicking, but the point is that it’s hard. I’m gonna watch no matter what because I love everything GB. Just thought I’d voice what’s bothering me about the feature.
@benpack If you wanna watch original Dragon Ball but you're afraid it'll drag too much, fans have re-edited the original DB series to be cut the filler stuff and make the pacing more similar to the manga. I think they even go as far to call it "Dragon Ball Kai"? Search for it, it's a really good way to re-visit it, and the episodes are available in both Japanese dub with English subs and English dub
The sync way off on this for anyone else?

I'm getting a Kegel workout watching this.
Everytime I see the classic nintendo games America has it bums me out, I wan't those in Europe too!
Someone knows the brand of flavored water that Jeff is drinking? They always drink that stuff and I don't remember seeing a similar logo here in Canada.
I didn't realize how much I needed a show where Ben and Jeff do Aftershow level shenanigans with a backing track of Brad getting mad at Mario.

Please, Ridley Me This needs to happen. No bias here.
I think you might be conflating Mario with Wario, Ben.

Its driving me nuts that Brad never climbed up that vine...
The sync way off on this for anyone else?
Every video in that studio lately has been out of sync. Bombcast has been fine though.
