Aside from Dan and Jeff's occasional "who can be more closed-minded?" battles (which Dan seems to win consistently), I enjoy their chemistry. Perhaps it's because they have the exact same interests...

@megatronicles: No, I just found that, between the video samples he supplied and the occasional DotA-moments, he contributed to my enjoyment about as much as Jeff and Dan yell over fighting games or grumble about the Retron errors. I can understand DotA haters disliking it, but as someone who enjoys watching the game as much as most other titles, I was consistently enjoying most parts of this episode.

@megatronicles: Personally I found he supplied half of the entertainment value of the whole episode.

that Sanrio match around 3:13:00 was amazing!

@jdp83: It wasn't the Retron's fault, it was whatever system they put it through that made it sound like shit. It sounds like your video when I play Sonic 2 on my Retron, and the rings sound right too.

I like this Dan chap.

His voice reminds me of a less gravely Will Arnett.

Dammit, I can't unhear it.

"Come on!"

Yeah, Jeff was right about the audio. On top of the output sounding like crap / being distorted, the Retron 5 seems to be pulling the wrong instrumentation for the Genesis audio.

Here's how the emerald zone levels should sound in Sonic 2.

I could watch Jeff and Jason play 4star SSF all day.

edit: I would pay to watch Jeff and Dan play competitive multiplayer every day.

YES. Watching those two go at it in SSF was amazing.

Enjoyed the stream. One thing I noticed is that Brad who normally won't last an hour into a live stream before running off to what I assume is a bio break (take that Jeff) stayed at that computer playing DOTA for almost 4 hours.

He has a catheter strapped on. I think Valve sells them.

Is there a catheter page in the compendium?

I have to agree with Dan's sentiments on DOTA. I enjoy watching it, but every time i try and get in there to learn characters/how DOTA stuff works, I get chastised and treated like shit by their community.

I had the opposite with League, actually, and can hold my own in that game. It just sucks, because DOTA looks fun but it's not exactly a good time learning a game when your team is pissed cause you didn't play your role 100% perfect.

Fun fact, Blue Moon is "Belgian style beer" and bottled in the US! So it was actually an all-American beer drinking stream after all.

@poser: This video also perfectly encapsulates how multiplayer gaming has changed over the years.

So another person on the team who's just gonna make fun of Dota then? So Jeff hired another Jeff then? oh dear. that's not good. He needed to hire another Brad. In this video Jeff makes a comment about how all anyone is playing anymore is Minecraft, League of Legends and Dota. Wouldn't you want someone who is clued in on these games? (Forgive me if he is clued in on Minecraft. I'm behind on the podcast, maybe he does fill a gap in the roster)

Someone making fun of Dota is funny for only so long. Jeff needs to realise that his grumpy old man streak is starting to get the better of him and is starting to wear thin.

In spite of the Dota thing, Dan seems like a cool dude.

I for one welcome more MOBA hate. I can't stand them myself. it's cool if people like them, but I just don't get it.

I would cry if I had to suffer through TWO people carrying on endlessly about whatever worthless virtual piece of junk they won in some dull DOTA match. It's like listening to people discuss their fantasy football team. There's no shortage of sources through which to scratch that dull itch.

@tinygrasshopper: You are wrong the reasons you point out are exactly the reason Dan is great. I say this as a man who was fairly into LoL and dabbled in DOTA but, for reals the whole Brad portion of the stream was only good when Jeff and Dan took the shit out of it.

@slay3r1583: I would rather watch a video called "Street Fightin' With Jeff and Dan" where for 30-60 mins Jeff and Dan go on the street and fight one another.

Hot damn! Dan brings that unabashed enthusiasm that Vinny had. Genuine laughter, all smiles, likes to talk. Fantastic! I'm really happy that he's a permanent part of the team now.

Some posts in this comment section make it seem like some of you guys have never interacted with another human being before. Think about what you post even if it's just out of "concern" or whatever bullshit excuse you want to use. Jesus...

@klumzee: I loved Deception. it revitalized my love for Ermac. Also, Puzzle Kombat was goofy fun.

I already knew Dan would fit in great from the PowerBombcast, but this stream really confirmed it. Jeff and Dan pair up great.

@ithmoliar: @jeff As a heads up, Vinny and Alex had weird sound issues with the retron 5 as well, but only when going through capture hardware. I've messed with a retron 5 hooked into a TV, and Sonic 2 sounded way different than it did on the stream.

This is what Brad looked like before E-Sports took his soul. We have to help him!

I would like to propose a new video series: "Street Fightin' with Jeff and Jason". It would be 30 to 60 minute videos of Jeff and Jason fighting each other in various fighting games for various systems.

Also while I enjoyed Dan's reaction to and enthusiasm for the TriCaster shenanigans I feel that him trying to summon them was maybe overstepping his bounds a little.

@murdoc_: Shit son why don't we get you to play LoL and Brad to play Dota. You'll both be seated facing one another and this can be the final test to see which is the best Lords Management game

@danryckert you punch tigers in the face in yakuza 2 for the ps2, speaking of um, punching felines in the face. if you want more of punching felines in the face in videogames, maybe check that out :]

also watching this top gun play makes me nostalgic for freespace 2, a real man's flight combat game in which you can totally do barrel rolls
