Grats to Vinny, maybe Dan will beat it one day.
It's ok that brownie didn't survive The Run, cause they can just build another one.
nice slide Dan
Good job, Andy!
First try, incredible!
Is this the run???
Congratulations Vinny and Dan, this was a hard one! Please make an encore episode with some of the other route levels and the bonus ending!
I have concocted a back story about this game.
This game takes place in a world where dance has been made illegal. Think of it as a kind of futuristic Footloose. You (or rather, Dan and Vinny) play as the mercenaries of John Lithgow. You are Blade Runner-style figures whose job is to kill off the robots who dare try to defy the law and dance.
Now time to unlock the other endings!
Beaten on the first try, this game looks easy...

Dan's final, clutch move in this Run was hilarious. Great work, guys. I enjoyed this every step of the way. This game is cool.

Dan's reactions every time Vinny was dodging the arm at the end are hilarious!
This is the Run for Vinny. I'm actually 99.9% sure Dan can beat this solo with Brownie. You get tons of extra lives playing solo and Dan has every boss down except the last one (which the strategy is slide, don't just stand there, and then shoot the dick arms, then slide).

Vinny has 1 weapon and Dan thinks he now needs it after needing everything. Also he has a double-jump, walk under things, float fall, and a stand still yo-yo.
Vinny You win the Run
Lol that Dan slide.
Once we're past the dummy it's Rocket Time USA.
This is a good game
Alright then. I stand corrected.
Give Vinny the "A"
Vinny is the Best.
Brownie died for Dan's sins. All praise Vinny's A.
The Salty A Gun.
I was so excited for this episode. Did not disappoint.
@pontoon_yacht: The game definitely has some iconic struts/running.
The "A" salt was great :D
Great way to start the weekend!
Good Job, Vinny!
That was an incredible episode, from the casual beginning to the intensity of the last area (and Dan's reaction to every dick swing).
This is my favorite Contra game and I figured they would be playing this all year. I'm glad they pulled it off, though, and I can safely safe this was my favorite GB series since Beast in the East.
For the bonus endings Vinny should play as easy-mode Brownie.
Edit: Also, Dan, remember that when referencing Rocky it's important to remember that at the end of the movie that, despite getting super close, Rocky didn't beat Apollo.
I'm looking forward to you guys tackling the other paths, or at least climbing the wall to the right of the turrets outside of Noiman's hideout. Am I correct in assuming that any bonus episode(s) will appear in the same feed so people following it will receive notifications?
By the way, Vinny, I only suggested crouching during the final Deadeye Joe battle when he's to your left and only to REDUCE (not eliminate) the risk of him hitting you. If he's on the right, then you have more time to judge the timing of your jump. If he's on your left, then that's much more difficult, and you'd might as well crouch at that point to slightly reduce your hit box size.
In either case, congrats to Vinny for pulling out a victory when I was starting to doubt that you guys would finish the game in this episode. It was refreshing to see Vinny get the final pattern down and emerge victorious. It was also fun to watch Dan nearly jump out of his skin with each of Vinny's dodges.
I CAN'T BELIEVE IT!!!!!!
Dan being extra Dan, dying, having to watch Vinny prove him wrong while he alone beats the boss, and then getting erased from the game was the giant bomb moment of the year.
He was irradiating salt by the end.
Best giantbomb feature.
Well done Vinny, all on your own too!!

On-tilt Dan is my favorite Dan.
Great series! Definitely worth the premium subscription
Glad to hear they're up for more endings as well
This was my favorite TITR thus far, even with the vast number of episodes. Never got boring to me watching them do the same levels, and it was awesome watching them get progressively better each episode.
I'm glad this Run has gone on long enough for me to unironically learn to love the Jungle level's music.
