Maan....  While it WAS an epic run....  I kinda wish maybe I had just gone to sleep now that I could have watched most of it after :)

You guys don't really should not care about the last two hours.
 
At that point, they had all been up waaaaay too long, and just played their games with less and less enthusasim, clearly strugleing to stay awake at all.
 
I mean, it might be entertaining in a Sadistic way, but trust me, all the best stuff is in this one.

Man it's a shame we didn't get to see the killscreen live, but still it was an epic experience, all the hype and excitement when they started playing to the end where they and most of us were drop dead tired hoping it would end soon.
 
Judging by when it went down I think Ryan did the right think by calling it off, otherwise we would have watched for like 15 hours.

This needs to be restated.  The last few hours were just brutal and kind of boring.  There were just LONG periods of silence as Ryan was playing Mech Assault 2 as everyone started dropping like flies.  This has the AWESOME beginnings of the Dave and Vinny Project (future #1 band in the world), and that's all you need.

I love this site, you guy's are awesome, It's sad that it is 2:58AM on sat morning and I am watching this great send off that I couldn't because I was at work, but I just gotta say this, 
I don't regret it at all, 
 
Thanks guy's, you rock.

Since this stream only goes up to 4 hours, what happened in the last 2 hours? did it just continue like what it is now? now being Vinny being legend and playing guitar, (You say goodbye, I say Halo) (3:55) Drew is getting angry, (He's blue, he is your enemy, I KNOW!) 
 
Every endgame these guy's do Vinny needs that guitar, it makes it so brilliant.

Jesus christ, the sound of emptiness right after they got kicked, went on for a couple minutes, felt like a small part of me just was missing, weird.   
 
So, This is it.

IMO, Halo 2's maps are better than 3's; especially the larger ones.

@Bionicicide: Not to burst your bubble, and I may be wrong about this, but I don't think that was the end of Live.  I think that was just EA shutting down their support.  I say this because, Ryan tried going back and playing Burnout 3 during the live stream, and he couldn't play online.  They then returned to playing Microsoft games for another couple hours before giving up.  I still don't know when Live actually shut down.
