Get On My Level! - The Lost Levels: Mario is Missing!

A catastrophic gear failure destroyed this episode immediately after it was filmed, leaving us with only this wide angle shot of Ben and Jeff. Spooky!

The Giant Bomb community build levels to try and stump Ben and Dan for their money!

Oct. 22 2019

Cast: Jeff, Ben

Posted by: Jeff

In This Episode:

Mario is Missing!

Episode Notes:

It super sucks that we lost the rest of this footage, but there was still enough here that I figured I'd toss it up for people who want to see some bits of how the sausage was (not) made on this one. We've already had conversations about changes to the backup process for multicam shoots and hopefully this won't happen again. -Jeff

Thanks for posting this. I watch mostly for the conversations anyway, so this still works for me 100%

Something something only real GBers would reconstruct the levels from the sound effects, reactions of the crew (and that Jeff guy), and the video peeking over Ben's shoulder.

At this point in my life, GB could be an audio-only source of content and very little about I consume it would change. Many thanks to Jeff for tossing this up anyway!

If you look at the desk-front display that's showing Ben you can kinda see some of the gameplay from the preview feed in the reflection of the framed GB posted behind him

Weirdest damn episode ever. It made me feel like I was out for dinner and I could clearly overhear the people at the table next to mine have a conversation that I was not part of. Fascinating but also uncomfortable.

@blumlein: All we need is a bunch of money for cloud compute and access to 100,000 other videos of this exact same problem. Then we can augment the videos to turn them into like 10,000,000. At this point we need more than a bunch of money. We can get some venture capital and sell the business in 6 months after failing to make a viable prototype. Easy money. Then we have our initial capital for a crypto IPO and the nerdier of us can start hiring rocket scientists.

For what it's worth, it's really interesting to see something like this from a production standpoint. Granted, that doesn't outweigh the stress the video crew probably went through dealing with the footage loss, but if it's any consolation the result is kinda cool to see, in a weird way.

Mario ain't the only thing missing, Jan and the Gameplay are missing too. Jason needs a vacation he's clearly tired, stressed over his health (I am too, so I know how he feels), and not focused.

Love you, Jason. I hope you start feeling better.

Jeff made Ben play that Ghost Gap level waaay longer than Dan would've and this episode was better for it. Please try to commit longer to levels like that in the future!

Everyday GB skews closer and closer to becoming ~poetic cinema~.

Also, "Get On My Level! - The Lost Levels: Mario is Missing!" is a JRPG ass title scheme if I ever saw one.

This may be too far down into the weeds, but can you describe what actually blew up? Behind the scenes stuff is always interesting to me, and I'm wondering if it was the unlikely but much dreaded double hard drive failure (which happened to me once at work, which is why I have 4 copies of everything important to me), or if something else actually let the magic smoke out.

I'd say that I listen to Giant Bomb videos 70% of the time and actually watch them 30% of the time because you guys put out more content than I can consume and I got shit to do so the banter makes good background noise. My point is that this is like a bonus podcast which is fine by me and if this ever happens again please post it.

Alright for the next episode just do a bunch of mario maker levels with no commentary. For balance. This will definitely go over well.
