Great first show...that spider death was both hilarious and painful to watch.

Duder, I knew that. Do you need a curator? I have a degree and initials and everything. ;D


Yea, totally noticed that you mentioned it was from me. It was just that I remembered seeing the gif but not actually making it so I didn't wanna take credit for something I didn't do =P

I don't have them staring at me the whole time. At least not from in front of the TV. I guess it just feels so far from the Giant Bomb style I'm used to on the site.

Clearly you're referring to quick looks and not live shows? Which do exactly that. Or do you want the camera offset by 30 degrees or what?

Live shows I give leeway to for feeling like an evolution of Big Live Live Shows Live, where the studio and everything is a big deal. For Unprofessional Fridays, it makes sense to show everyone hanging out. When I'm watching someone I don't know silently playing a video game from his bedroom, I don't need to see his face the whole time.

That was a unique feeling. I've never played Spelunky before, so when he got to the Olmec fight and blew up the deep hole, I was just sitting there screaming "GO DOWN THE HOLE! I WANT TO KNOW WHAT'S DOWN THERE!"

It was the opposite of how you might feel in a horror movie, the classic "DON'T GO IN THERE, HE'S IN THERE, OH MY GOD," and you know the actions are going to play out on screen the exact same way. But with this, it's like YOU don't know either, and unlike in a horror movie, there's a chance they might actually not go through the door. Highly enjoyable.

Seeing patrick fight olmec was rough. He didnt notice the hole he made wasnt big enough?

God damnit, Patrick! Your strategy was actually pretty clever for droppin' bombs at the end. I can't believe I never thought of doing that. Still, an absolutely soul sucking way to end a personal best. I feel your pain, sir.

Have you ever played Muramasa on the Vita, it's really good. Prob. one of the best looking games I've seen with excellent music and combat, play on Chaos though for the challenge.

Pretty sweet run, Scoops. But goddamn, that shotty / jetpack combo nearly breaks the game.

Well, until you realize that beating Olmec is only the beginning really.

I was kind of excited to watch this until I remembered Patrick uses his webcam in his videos. I don't know why streamers and LPers do that; it's like they have a need to assure us they're still alive. People say it's for seeing reactions or feeling like you're with the person, but when I'm watching TV with someone, I don't have them staring at me the whole time. At least not from in front of the TV. I guess it just feels so far from the Giant Bomb style I'm used to on the site.

I like difficult games but this game... I cannot. I have tried. I did. Spelunky does bad things to my brain. Everything super dangerous + item scarcity + time limitation = me flying into a controller throwing banging head against the wall rage guaranteed within 20 minutes loading up the game. It ruins me for the rest of the day, too. I have never encountered another game that does this to me. I'm usually patient and easy going about games, even very difficult ones.

That was a pretty fantastic run given that he was talking over it the whole time. Oh Brad, I believe you're good at games, but we'll never get to see it in Spelunky or anything else, because you're so self-conscious and/or especially not able to talk and play simultaneously.

If only he had just gone in the hole he created instead of pussing out and messing up bomb throws, he might've done it. Or he could've just sat there for like 20 minutes, waiting for Olmec to make just the right jump to fall in the hole, but that would've made for a boring stream.

Man that was a good run. Wish chat did not get all hissy with Patrick not knowing what to do.

It's something you have to get used to around here, sadly.

I haven't played in a while, but... can't you just open the chests without having to hit them? Action+Up, or something like that?

This was outstanding. You did a great job of explaining your thought process the entire time which is often super hard on a solo gameplay. Can't wait for the next one.

This is great. I could never get into Spelunky, but it's a lot of fun watching you play. And man, Spelunky has some fantastic music.

Oh my god, I've never even reached Olmec before and that was infuriating to watch. You bought this on yourself Scoops, you've gotta use your head out there!

@patrickklepic I don't care what anybody says, that was great fun to watch and I hope you keep it up! I'd really appreciate it if you explained some more detail as to how the game works. Specifically, how,to unlock the guy that "warps" you to other stages. I work 12hr graveyard shifts in the ER and this content is always a great end to my night. Thanks!

Between this and his Dark Souls run yesterday was amazing. Somebody's probably pointed this out but there's a pick axe at the bottom of every(at least most of) snake pit.

Such a great video, spelunky runs are so tense to watch, especially the few times you managed to -just- avoid death by some miraculous means. But the whole time you watch knowing that it will be some minor mistake that causes death, as always, and lo.

The seed in the Temple was exceptionally kind too, giving a nice clear run through with barely any lava and only a couple of the awful crushing blocks. Next time you make it there I can only imagine the horrors...

I also started playing Spelunky recently, I've opened the shortcuts all the way to the Temple but that place is rough when you don't have any upgrades.

I prefer using a dualshock 4 on the PC version. Mainly because I feel like I play better with a d-pad
