I was about to say I need to get more used to Ben before I can appreciate these types of videos, but then I remembered he's been Giant Bomb staff for like two years, so maybe it's just how it is.

BEN AND JAN DREAM TEAM

Does anyone else think the setting in this looks more varied and aesthetically pleasing than actual PUBG?

yesyesyesyes. As much as I'd like to watch a Ben Jan endurance run of some sort, this is the other type of stream I'd like to see from these good boiz.

EDIT: oh and yeah, definitely show your faces folks. I always prefer streams like that, but honestly not sure if I'm the minority or not.

Maybe instead of persistently showing faces during the whole stream, show them periodically for reactions. I like Jan's style of adding different overlays (shoutouts to Mmmmmike) depending on context, whether as goofs or to help convey something in-game. Anyway I'm really into the concept of this series even though I've never played a single battle royale game and really don't care about them at all.

@grace_omega: Yep. From my outside perspective, this looks jankier, but also more interestingly designed.

Wow this is such an unashamed copy, but it seems to have some unique charms in some of their tertiary choices like the cigar you can see in first person and high jump boots.

Fair enough that it started as an April fools joke, but considering how similar to Battlegrounds it is in style and structure I don't see it lasting, Totally Accurate Battle Simulator was a more interesting and fun take on it.

Anyway I enjoy your co-op shenanigans! Idk what to suggest but I'm excited for the next one. Live shows of this ilk would be cool too, I initially thought this was gonna be live.

I actually hope they don't get more people in because Jan and Ben together is gold. No need to put more people in this mix.

Me too, until half an hour before it was due, I thought there was a random Sunday live show on the schedule.

I'm gonna echo the "I am glad other people enjoy this". I like the Ben+Jan brand of humor well enough..in doses about half the length of a typical ben's lens. In the kind of levels that other people (Brad, Jeff, Jason) will typically shut down and move past after its worn its welcome out (for me).

A full length feature of this is like an SNL skit turned into a full show. I'll laugh at the initial 5 minute bit, i'll roll my eyes and change the channel for the weekly hour long comedy. Or..maybe its the lack of a 'straight man' , I dunno.

Still, it seems to really tickle the fancy of plenty of people as stated, so good for it. Also A+ effort on that intro.

Fantastic intro, stopped watching after that when I realised the game was a battle Royale. Looking forward to the next episode!
