Huh, would have thought this would be a premium thing if you wanted to watch it again on GB instead of Justin. Cool.

Inspiring music, the jurassic Park video QL needed this to be better.

I'm really happy this isn't premium too. It seems more and more that whiskey doesn't care much about free members anymore. Just looking at GB, it seems like every other week us premium members get some kind of new video feature, but I can't remember the last time free users got anything new except Farmville which stopped after 2 weeks. Might sound crazy coming from a premium member but I want everyone to enjoy new types of content on GB.

Sweet, it's up at last. Been watching this on twitch yesterday, I saw about 2-3 hours of the early parts live but I'm interested to see the rest. Far enough into the game now that I'm not too worried what I see anyway. And Greg's voice is very soothing while I'm doing work.

@Jason_Bourne: Agreed! Spread the love.

I think the privilege of being able to download every bit of content, the HTML5 mobile site, TNT, HD video and awesome occasional livestreams are more than enough to justify the 5 bucks a month for me personally. And besides, the feeling of supporting such a great site fills my heart with pink butterflies of joy, something manly like that.

I'm already downloading this marathon to watch on my PS3 later, I decided to skip the actual live version because I wanted to play Skyrim without anything spoiling it for me. Go Kasavin!

@Dustpan: I'm guessing it has to do with a hard drive shortage due to recent, unfortunate events in Thailand. In most cases, hard drive prices have skyrocketed, and in some, retailers are limiting purchases per customer. Again, it's just speculation, but the folks over on the Tested podcast mentioned it a few weeks ago.

Whiskey Media videos have always had bad compression in my experience, especially the HD direct downloads; however, I have noticed it's gotten worse lately. Can't really fault them though, since their videos are long and they probably need to cut corners somewhere.

@Jason_Bourne: You're probably right, but non-premium members are not me so I kinda don't care about what happens to them. I want value for my money:p

Anyway, I had started watching this on the bugged-as-hell Justin TV, and I'm so glad this finally got uploaded. Thanks Vinny!

He totally missed that you could use the triggers to go right and customize your character, or maybe he just didn't want to. idk.

Errr... they capture and output in 1280x720 anyway. Not to mention the fact that this is an Xbox game. This is the highest quality this video has ever been.

Yeah the Justin.tv archives definitely have tons of compression artifacting (as would be expected from a web archive) so I'm glad these videos are finally starting to be uploaded here on GB.

This might be me- but the Youtube version of this goes for over 2 hours- but goes black and silent halfway.
