    Seems like awesome flavor, but really awkward controls, and also why was the sound randomly on and off? Steam says "early access". Which I guess is marketing speak for "we'll take your money even though it's not really finished and still buggy."

    I think the audio issues were related to the Twitch stream. When they were recording this episode there was no game audio getting through to the stream audience, so I imagine the audio loss was during an attempt to correct that. I've put about 25 hours into this game and have never experienced any audio bugs or crashes.

    Oh man the people that made Castle Crashers decided to make Gladius and they can't take my money fast enough.

    They also made Battleblock Theater, which leads into this game in a weird kind've way.
    If you want to know why the Bear crashes into the world, you need to watch the ending of Battleblock Theater.

    Then you will know. Not understand, just know.

    There's a thread in the youtube comments suggesting that the audio is actually from a second playthrough (that Josh did, presumably) because "I wanted you guys to at least get the cool story bits at the very least."

    That said, the stream never got audio at all, and based on said thread, I assume the recording/file didn't get audio either. I'm curious if they did a second First 15 that day since they cancelled the stream after Pit People due to technical issues.

    Wow, I have to say that I'd decided to pass on this game due to my perceived understanding of the game mechanics. I'm much more into X-com style cover-based ranged tactics rather than most tactical that just have you marching guys out to wail on other guys with no real cover. But watching this makes me WAY more interested (really glad they spliced in that story audio). I may skip Early Access but I'll definitely wishlist it so I can follow it.

    Does anyone know what headphones they are wearing in this?

    Yes, I did play through that section of the game again for the audio, they did not do a second First 15 that day because the equipment basically freaked out on me and I spent the rest of the day fixing it.
    As for the headphones they are Trekz Titanium by Aftershokz and they are bone conduction headphones. With how much we rep them I can't believe we don't have a sponsorship yet.

    Just want to say how much I appreciated that. I really made the First 15 work. I don't think it would have otherwise. You did a great job of it, considering I didn't even guess at how you'd spliced it in until I saw people commenting here.

    Seriously. It gets asked so much. It's almost like they could pay for the entire First 15 with a little blurb at the end that simply says "The answer to your question is Trekz Titanium by Aftershokz".
