I'd say quickest Endurance Run, but Vinny just beat that horror game yesterday by accident and I'm not sure how long it took to beat Bad Dudes.

Can't wait for episode 2.

Also Dan looks so much younger without his beard, he should keep it off.

...this is kind of a sign that Metal Gear Scanlon should come back.

Yeah, I'd thought of Endurance Run too, but figured it wouldn't count since he only fought the last boss. It's almost more of a, "Load Our Last Save".

People forget how much easier most NES games are when you hook an original system to a CRT. Every form of emulation adds some lag, and every HDTV adds more.

I never noticed that Tyson blinks to let you know which way he's going to punch.

Watching Dan go full on wizard mode in that last round gave me flashbacks to the moment when Brad beat Mile High Club during the Big Live Live Show. Truly GB is home to legendary heroes.
