What I would like to see in this game when released or in a sequel is stuff going on in the background to distract you, makes it a little harder I think!
for the love of god danny, pls play devil may cry 3 dantes awakening. watching you play the first game was hilarious, mostly because that game wasn't very hard, it's the third game in the series that's challenging. i think watching play DMC 3 would be great. thank you.
danny is the best thing on gamespot. I love this man like a broter who i want to hug and lock in my basement.....and dress up....and.....love.....0_0
"Aquaria" never got the attention it deserves. Maybe you want to play that on the show? It's a wonderful little castlevania type underwater shooter "rpg" adventure hybrid.
One of the best indie titles I ever played.
Hey Danny, I'd like to suggest a game for the show, it's a free indie title by the name of "A Mother's Inferno", the game is an extremely symbolic first person horror acid trip game, it's quite short, but thought provoking.
I enjoyed it a little but a neat idea...other video game suggestions are: Ristar  and Space Harrier .
Danny's laughs are the best part of this. I will have to check this game out, looks fun and good for some live-streaming.
I hate games that grade on time. I like being able to take my time and appreciate the game and hate being forced into rushing through a level.
Oh my god.. I couldn't stop laughing the first guard he punches 100+ times in the face - seriously I got tears in my eyes.
Yes! That looks pretty cool!
Indie devs bring all the innovation.
It's just sad that the AAA game makers don't dare to come up with concepts like this. Just imagine what we could have.
I must admit, the game does look pretty cool... at first glance it looked really dull but the mechanics and personal touches by the maker really make it shine. Unfortunately this did not make for my favorite RE. Nothing was wrong with anything, I guess I am just a little twisted in that I enjoy RE more when you play a HORRIBLE game. Maybe you could start another show called "Redemptive Encounter" where you play notoriously bad games, trying...looking for... creating ways to make them decent. WAIT... Gamespot should hire me to do that! Hello Gamespot gods (I think Kevin VanOrd might be one), I would totally take the job to come up with Gamespot shows, though I don't have a cool accent, I can make one up if it gets me the job. Oh and Danny... SUPER HIGH IMPACT (snes version)!!!
@FreedomPrime Woah. I was with you up to the whole locking up in a basement and dressing up. lmao
@FreedomPrime weird i feel the same
@Saketume you Sir are absolutely correct, one the best games I have ever played, from the indie spectrum a definitive must, even bough the OST...
I know what you mean. I'd agree with you most of the time but then sometimes I find myself loving it like with the challenge levels in Bionic Commando: Rearmed.
Note though that those are only rated on time upon completion and nothing else.
It's when I have to sacrifice loot and other things it gets annoying for me.
@crazylooser2003 Somehow you saying that reminded me of another game "Creatures 2". Looking back, I have no idea why I ever played that game. Which going through nostalgia also reminds me of another game I played called Journeyman Project Turbo
@crazylooser2003 I completely forgot about that game! Man that game was great :D
EDIT: It was made by Relic. Never knew!
@crazylooser2003 Man, that game was my childhood. I was just thinking about it a couple weeks ago. Yes please do a Random encounter for Impossible Creatures, that would be really awesome.
Why? That would be super boring to watch
