I'm watching these UPFs from newest to oldest and it's good to see Ryan again. I can't wait to see more of his contributions and his hear his infectious laugh as I continue to go further in the backlog. His legacy lives on.

I didn't realize the ps3 could play ps1 games off disk. I mean it makes sense, I have a few ps1 classics digitally (symphony of the night, Blood omen). Just didn't think about ~physical media~. No reason the emulator can't also read from the disk though. Works on PC.

Also classic brad being pretty dumb and bad at games. Good stuff.

That makes it so much weirder now that they're selling PS2 Classics on PSN, which runs on any PS3, when PS3's made after the first year supposedly aren't capable of running PS2 games off discs.

I would be willing to pay Sony money, or even a separate subscription fee for the PS2 emulator so I could play my PS2 discs on my PS3 without having to repurchase the specific games from PSN.

I wish Ryan was leaving.

I understand it's easy to say something like this and I understand he wasn't really in this episode but wishing for someone to leave any major community (especially when they are the co-founder) is messed up. He not only helped build giantbomb but added a lot of himself to it. I hope you regret posting this but don't let it haunt you.

Uhhhh.. Awkward......

Spycraft was amazing holy shit, perfect type of so-bad-it's-good game for this show. Vinny and Jeff were hilarious.

Kind of sad that Ryan was kind of MIA in the last few of these shows that he was in, as that's why I went back to watch these as I hadn't yet. Seemed like he didn't want to really be there and he kept disappearing, feels like maybe they should just scale this show back a bit time wise so they guys don't get too bored like that, maybe just a hour and a half would be plenty. Also, Rorie needs to not try to force convo so much and try so hard, "the chat" is not some glorious bastion of whitty comments and poignant questions that needs to be referenced every 2 minutes.. try every 30 minutes maybe, sorry but internet chat rooms are just not suited to being referenced on shows more than once in a blue moon.

Patrick will be missed.

I love Warpath, played it a lot with my brother back in the day.

By the way @patrickklepek, the music in that game was composed by LOST composer Michael Giacchino!

Wish they played some more Oddworld. Oddyssey and Exoddus were amazing games.

I was dying looking at his face. That was so funny on its own, and then his reaction made it perfect.

Was Brad's inability to play video games AT ALL extra annoying to anyone in this episode? Drove me insane and I don't usually care.

I like how Rorie got in "Internet Adult Film Database" without anyone noticing.

It was the perfect getaway.

Oh gosh these guys really don't recall how to play Oddworld at all, huh? Man that's frustrating. The GameSpeak is available from the very start.

I remember buying Abe's Oddysee some years back because I loved Exoddus but I ended up regretting the purchase and got rid of it. The lack of the quick save function was a deal breaker for me and it wasn't as creative and fun up front. Also, they seem almost completely unrelated from a story perspective. I wasn't missing anything. Maybe the new remake will be better.

@rorie You inclusion on the show has been getting better and better! I was kinda skeptical the first 4 episodes or so since it seemed like if there was silence for even a second you immediately asked a question. Each episode seemed like the GB crew playing a game while you asked non-stop random ass questions. A few times you somewhat blatantly interrupted one of the GB crew with another question as they answered a question you asked not too long before.

It was rocky at first, but you've been getting better! I'm sure anyone away from video content like you were since you left Screened would be a bit rusty! This episode in particular shows improvement!

Glad to have you back on a site I like, and miss the old Screened! I left that site after you did and it seems to be the right choice. They haven't reviewed a movie in what looks like over two months!

I could care less if the crew is good at playing video games, since they're so damn entertaining regardless.

Also, Rorie is doing a great job.

Finally, a positive post in this comment thread. Thanks sir.

Bye Patrick. Also, Rorie and those dog moments were great. Lastly, that fish-eye camera should see more action in shows.

So much nostalgia. I got Spycraft with some PC as a kid. I remember the FMV weirded me out a lot because all the actors are so awful and they constantly stared at the camera.

The whole one in the chest, one in the throat thing scared the hell out of me as well.

Thanks, as always, to the Giant Bomb crew for brightening up a weekend that wouldn't have been otherwise. Patrick, good luck with your move back to Chicago, I'm looking forward to seeing what you come up with. There's a reason so many of us love this site.

Man, I would love to see a technical breakdown of how they got Windows 98 working. I tried it maybe a year ago, but neither Virtual Box nor VMWare supported it, and my searches for success stories in this area were unsuccessful.

I guess I'll say it. I truly regret Patrick splitting to Chicago and not physically being there with the other guys. I was leery of Pat a bit at first. But in time I could put aside the point whether I thought him wrong on some issue or that as a personality he was irritating me. So what, generally he could be funny as hell, and contributed well. Patrick especially proved something to me when he broke his collarbone. I'm glad it did not seriously inhibit him the use of one of his hands at the time. But he did not allow it to keep him down.

At any rate without meaning anything negative by this, but I hope for the best in the shift and nature his contributions, now that the dynamic has changed.

I'm seriously going to miss Patrick. He's been one of the best reasons to come to the sight for a long time now.
