Glad to see something different, not that LiS was bad or anything.
YES! YES! YES!
Oh God.....Alex, Vinny and Austin have no idea what they're getting into.

Man, the chat servers, the video, everything broke down this morning. Giant Bomb can't handle on-camera Bakalar.

Ok, I'm happy with this.
@lachrymoses: LiS is becoming a playdate

Is this Bakalar's first on-screen appearance here on GB?
I'm already loving this.
An excellent video showcasing Vinny, Alex, and Jeff2 watching some porn together
This title probably has the best/worst gay character in gaming history.
Phantasmagoria always delivers.
Oh boy, you're all in for a rough ride.
And the chat wasn't expecting that.
I felt so sorry for the guy I quit watching, will peek back in on it this evening.
The sex scene started while I was still in Typography, and I had to casually drag my InDesign window over the stream and hope no one behind me noticed.
Thanks, Giant Bomb!

Sad to have missed this live.
this is like the worst episode of the x-files mixed with the worst indulgences of 90s FMV. i really hope they keep playing, it's not very long and there is so much bad silly garbage
i also want to see them react to the amazing climax!- a terrible looking nonsensical alien puzzle
This continues to not be Crusader Kings.
It sounded pretty clear at the end of this stream that they don't have any immediate plans to continue it, they said they wanted to (probably justifiably) make Choose Our Own Adventure more of a "different thing every week" series rather than basically committing to one full game playthrough after another.
That said, this was one of the most entertaining things I've ever seen on this site.
Yes, thank you for quick upload Vinny!
Honestly I hope they don't play past episode 3 of LiS.
It just ends up super disappointing.
Oh god, I watched a full playthrough of this game something like 7 years ago so I'm excited to see the gang's reactions to this thing. It's really stupid.

I heard that, Curtis.
Did they end up putting a mosaic over the sex-scene or not?
I lost it at 1:28:00 when Jeff said, "Wait a minute...Blob!"

How can they miss the fact that TWO different directions arrow are on that other side of the room....dolts.
I really hope they continue this but I know they probably won't. All the best stuff I can remember is after where they left off.

I agree. This one took a little while to get going but I now want to see where exactly it's going to.
This is, perhaps, the problem with this concept.
Like if you play a game once..in a format where you give the audience the chance to have you play it again; The vast majority are gonna go "woho I liked that do it again!" The number of voices in the room will only go down as people who don't care for the series don't show up and..
Like LIS I don't really care for, I've yet to finish even the first video of this series, but this? I'd absolutely take more of this.
Then again, if they had only played say, half-way through Until Dawn, or Contradiction(bad typo) then that would have sucked. I think that certain games (like ones that are more then 2 or 3 episodes to complete) make for poor Gbeast full-plays. At least in a format like this. Pulled out as their own thing, a different feature altogether, is of course a different matter.
I'm not sure how far they have gotten in LIS, as I've no idea how long each episode is but..if a full commitment to finishing that game puts us at, what, mid January, or February?, before they get to another game? Well..I guess I'll get too it at some point. If it happens to be a shorter game then, well, we run into the same problem eventually with whatever game they choose to play.

Memories of when TheSpoonyone played this on youtube. Until he turned into an asshole and went crazy.
@bladededge: So they played 2 episodes out of 5 of LiS and decided to push that series to GBE playdate.
The original idea of this feature was to play a different game each time and pushing interesting series to GBE playdates should help with the original intent of this series.
Then again, i could see a lot of people voting for Phantasmagoria again. It's up to Giant Beast to decide if they want to play more of this, pass it to the playdate feature or just play something else.
@bladededge: LiS episodes are something like 2 to 2 and a half hours each unless you hunt for everything.
I'm here just to see how they've censored the boobies.
EDIT: They did not!
Oh man I just finished watching Vinny and Dave play through the first one yesterday! This is going to be awesome!
So that's what Bakalar looks like!
Bringing sexy Backalar
The last time I saw this was when I watched Spoony's playthrough. Time to see this game again.
Honestly I hope they don't play past episode 3 of LiS.
This reminds me of Load or Last Saves int the best sort of way.
Oh this is what Jeff looks like o.o Why does he not look like I imagined :p (whys he so cute)
IM SORRY THAT WAS INAPPROPRIATE
Also can someone link me to the voting thread thingy, I really cant find it D:
Holy shit, I just re-re-re-re-rewatched Vinny and Dave's playthrough of the first game a couple of days ago. THIS MAKES ME SO FUCKING HAPPY
Green cubicles, purple walls, and blue carpeting? Good heavens.
FUCK! I missed this live cause I assumed they'd continue with Life is Strange and I'm not caught up!
I remember hearing about this game, i don't remember playing it... Good memories!

Phantasmagoria 2 is a magical sort of terrible. I wouldn't mind them picking it back up, but I appreciate the idea of doing a new game every week.
Jeff does not look like how I imagined!
Wait, there was a second Phantasmagoria and GB is just now doing a video of it? For shame...
Mmm, it's just what I wanted...
