At 18:43, did someone just shoot to the rhythm of Shave and a Haircut? That was... random.

Also I'll echo the calls to hire Danny. Hire Jeff Green first, but then hire Danny. :)

Danny being asked to say California (or talk like a "Californian") reminds me when, at PAX East 2011, I asked Danny to say Burnsville, where I'm from, in his lovely Waterford accent. He subsequently asked me to say Waterford, where he's from, in my Minnesota accent.

True story.

There can be no more perfect name for that podcast than Irish Car Bomb. Amazing.

Everything Danny is in always ends up funny. And it is pretty eerie how much like Jeff he seemed in that chair.

I never voice my opinions on who GB should and shouldn't hire. Been listening to Jeff and Vinny express their desire for GB to grow in staff lately, so for once I'll add my voice to the countless duders here and say that Danny would be just perfect on the site as a full time hire. Here's hoping his professional goals and GB's plans align!

One of the best unprofessional friday's in a very long time; its the people that make it not the games that they play.

It's strangely eerie how Danny reacts, quips, and even stares at the camera just like Jeff. There's the Irish accent, but the deadpan and the banter is similar.

It's better

Cannon Fodder did come out on PC as well

EDIT: Speaking of unreadable copy-protection... I seem to recall that Pro Tennis Tour II (a Ubisoft game) which I owned on amiga featured a Maroon Text on Red/Maroon background (paper).

I probably have that around somewhere as I still have the game, somewhere.

Man those opening 15 minutes are super frustrating to watch. I expected better of Drew, even with all the off topic conversation going on. All the game was asking you to do was perform the calculation listed on the screen, 3 / 3.39, for which it even provided a calculator.

I finally got around to watching this. Aside from the handful of times he has shown up on GB videos I'm not too familiar with Mr. O'Dwyer's work. What are a handful of much watch/list to videos/podcasts with him?

I can recommend the GTA Diaries videos on GameSpot. They kind of remind me of Vinny playing an open world game, but these feel kind of scripted (not necessarily in a bad way). That site is kind of a mess, and they'd be much better off letting some of the fantastic personalities over there have more of a presence. As is, it's kind of a slew of gossip articles, sensationalist bullshit, and rumors.

I'd love to see Danny on more UFs.

Now I have a good reason to use my $15 store code. Thanks to the creator of the Windbombers shirt. It is really awesome and can't wait to wear it around.

Vinny should be in charge of live shows more often.

Danny is a the perfect GB personality. His talents are being pretty wasted on a faceless site like GS.

@slay3r1583: Search "Escape from Mount Stupid" and "GameSpot's The Point" on Youtube or their site. Really great stuff. I believe he also does/did weekly playthroughs of games, similar to quicklooks, but for older titles all in a style similar to GB's crew(hints with all of the 'hire'' remarks)

"Random Encounter" is what those Quick Look-like videos are called. He just did one this week for Hatoful Boyfriend(that he mentioned on this UPF and Rorie' Puppy Chat). He's also awesome at editing, his "A Year in the Life of a Gamer" videos are amazing. He also did a great one called "Video Games vs. Depression". Dude is excellent on camera, editing and can even do reviews, total package.

The TRS-80 was a PC line I was fond of as a kid in the 80s. I had the TRS-80 Color Computer ("CoCo") version 2 and later, 3. The O/S was Microsoft BASIC back when M/S was mostly doing ports of BASIC to all kinds of systems. (The CoCo with "Expanded BASIC", I think, had hi-res graphics (like 320x200, crazy hi rez!!!). There were non-CoCo TRS-80s , but they were before my time.

Most Infocom adventure games got ported to CoCo, so as a 10yo kid I got to play some great stuff.

Slightly disappointed that Brad didn't get to the intro movie in Fading Hearts. It's about an hour before cold opening to it. Also that game is terrible! It's total garbage! Don't play it, let alone buy it! But definitely watch this:

I love Danny's appearances on these videos, he definitely brings something special to the table. That said, I've started watching GameSpot stuff again since he moved to the US and been really enjoying their longer streams, there's some cool people over there. So I'd be fine with him staying there for the time being, especially as it sounds like he has something new in the works for GS.

He's definitely always welcome on the GB shores though, of course.
