For people who missed the first hour (and the madness that happened before that), follow this link.

I'm currently busy uploading "the first hour" (parts 1-6), It is low quality but the live stream wasn't much better either.

I was there!  It was a lot of good fun. Reading the community commentary, GB answering questions from the crowd of over 2000 viewers.  In the end, it was really sad to see it go but glad GB was there to document it.

....Dave was both hilarious and scary.  Nudity folks, there was nudity!

What you won't see is the epic chain of 300 people saying "Not like this!" in the last minute. And Dave shirtless...

That was such an amazing night in so many regards. From the pre-show to the countdown, you guys made a bigger deal out of it than even the devs and other players. Thanks for the memories!

EDIT: Almost forgot: If anyone wants to see the first hour and the pre-show shenanigans, you can watch it all on YouTube. Give some big thanks to t2t2 for recording and uploading.

My only concern is that MORE MMOs will now want to close down in order to get some fucking awesome publicity on Giant Bomb.  The developers will want the momentum to start their next doomed project. :-)

i am still wondering what that creepy green fog was with 5 minutes till doomsday. Funny and sad that Ryan chose to die alone, but I still wonder what happened to the dance line and the wall leaners.

I like the low-key-ness of the whole "Wake up Neo" thing. Pretty fitting.

The ending was very anticlimactic, but thanks to the players, it was entertaining. Totally worth staying up all night for this.
