    Although, I think Arin is the best person to play the game and beat it (maybe).

    This is one game in which it's not Arin's fault.
    That game is freaking evil.

    I don't know why, but when it happens in small doses I think it's hilarious when Arin goes into Focus mode.

    What a terrible ending, haha. I feel bad that Arin suffered through all of that for absolutely no payoff.

    Yeah, that ending was pretty stupid.

    The 3D was pretty neat, if utterly worthless in context to what Arin went through.

    Also, was this posted yet? Because crap! XD

    Another classic Genesis/MD game, another video of the grumps writing it off.

    In some ways, Game Grumps is like those "Teenagers React To X!" videos.

    Yeah I dunno, maybe they're playing it so poorly that I can't tell, but Toejam and Earl looks pretty bad.

    It reminds me a lot of E.T. for the 2600 in terms of gameplay and plot.

    They are playing badly.

    Each present is an item or type of item randomly associated with that type of box. The items have various effects that help you navigate the game, which is also randomly generated. They never opened any presents, nor noticed that the levels are stacked directly on top of one another.

    By modern standards, it's a simplified two-player roguelike. If that description gets any part of you interested, then you'd understand how it was pretty mind-blowing in the early 90s.

    It typically scored 8s and 9s in reviews back near its release.

    I at least understood the stacking levels bit from the video, and the present thing seems neat I guess, but it does seem like the core gameplay is comprised of slowly navigating a featureless wasteland, avoiding equally slow bad guys, and looking for random items.

    Like, I'm sure it was pretty neat conceptually back in the day, but it doesn't exactly look like something which stands the test of time (and I'm not just talking about the aesthetic, which I actually find kind of charming).

    I guess "slow" is the operative word there. And "featureless". I imagine I can't change religions or become blind or experience any of the other crazy complexities that are common in that genre with this game. Maybe that's where the presents come in, I guess.

    Toe jam and earl is roguelike-ish? Well shit, I need to play it(somehow I never have).

    Also, if they're playing Genesis games more regularly, I will be disappointed every day they don't play Gunstar heroes.

    Toejam and Earl is an instruction manual game. It's not intuitive and doesn't have an in game tutorial. It is the worst game for Arin.

    Once you get the idea of what the game is it's much more enjoyable. As a kid I rented it and couldn't figure it out, thought 2 was way better.

    Toe Jam and Earl is a classic in couch co-op in a generation where couch co-op mostly meant bad fighting games, bad racing games or the legendary mario titles. Of course, there were beat 'em ups, too. Multiplayer wasn't as diverse back in those days.

    Oh dude... They need to play Battletech (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/MechWarrior_3050). THAT'S a freakin' co-op game of champions.

    Of course, they'd probably panic, get set on fire, explode, and stop playing. But seriously, somebody send them this game.

    They need to play Futurecop: LAPD for PS1.

    I really want Danny to go back to Punch Out some time soon, that series was a lot of fun, and I never actually beat everyone in title defense myself.

    That was a one-off of a demo (with Jon, at that). This is the full version.

    For all the shit they gave Decap Attack, they totally gave it a fair shake and even admitted to having fun eventually. Honestly, that's all I'd ask for. Having played the game myself, I didn't give it more than a cursory try myself. And it seems clear that ToeJam & Earl they quit because Dan was bored. Again, fair enough. Hopefully they'll continue giving the occasional Genesis game a shot, there's plenty there.

    The first thing I thought of when they brought up dragon farts was that Samurai Jack episode. You know the one.

    Edit: Also, they should totally be playing this on butt mode.

    Stop the channel, hold the steam train. We have to go back and do this right.

    Just walked in the door from SGC. Told my friends I was hoping to run into Jon, and they said he was right behind me. I turn around and he's playing NFL Blitz with Smooth McGroove.

    Only got to see them for a few minutes, I had arrived about 30 minutes before the Normal Boots panel, so he had to run off to get ready. Went and watched him and Jared there. A little kid walked up during the Q&A and said JonTron was way better than everyone else, and they all flipped out. Jon kept yelling, "Take it back, TAKE IT BACK!" Then the kid plugged his own channel with 45 subscribers. Pretty hilarious.

    At one point someone at the mic to talk to them said he'd found a pile of Nintendo Powers in the room, and was using the mic time to ask if anyone had lost them. Everyone was half being polite that he was being considerate, and half sarcastic about it...and then Angry Joe popped up from backstage and said they were his that he'd left after his panel right before that.

    There was also a trivia contest. Apparently PBG was a janitor, and came up with some of the ideas that led to his channel while working. I think he was also homecoming king. The final question was, "Who is literally the worst?" The answer was JonTron (he wrote that question).

    I did get to talk to ProJared about RPGs for a bit after, that was fun. I also saw a Danielle Sexbang.
