Random Encounter - Painkiller

Danny kills pain the only way he knows how: circle strafing with a stake gun. (Game suggested by viewer Geon106)

I loved Painkiller because of the cool weapons ideas it had (I bet Danny doesn't know he can mix the two attacks of the melee weapon by holding main attack and throwing the blade with secondary) and also the great map design. Every area was unique and frantically fun!

I named my rival in Pokemon after a word I learned watching Random Encounter.

"Rival Pleb wants to fight!"

"So this game doesn't really have realistic physics, but what it does have is a LOT OF physics."

I approve.

She's naked 'cus that's Eve. You know, wife of Adam =P

The first people didn't wear clothes.

Anywho, a lot of the mythos in this seems to partially based on maybe Catholicism or something.

All I know is, I will never forget how terrible this game was at release. The game was broken; it wouldn't run (would crash afte rthe opening video). I remember having to wait a week or something to get it working. I even bought the game twice, thinking the first one was damaged haha

Loved the game once it was working, though.

Play Terarria or GTA IV. There was a sweet game called normality as well which I loved....maybe a bit of Abel odyssey/exodus too?

As much as I enjoyed dabbling with this game back in the day, I always found it *incredibly* difficult to play due to the motion sickness it induced, and the video brings it all back [up] again. :|

They should have christened it Kinetosis.

I remember the awesome "Hitman: Codename 47" cloth physics -- walking through drapes, curtains and stuff. Never did play PainKiller though.

The boss fights are frickin' amazing; here are some new game suggestions: Wild Arms 3 [2002] and Kingdom Hearts [2002].

@Danny Absolutely love the show man. Would be great if you did one of the old Resident Evil titles, my favorite was always Resident Evil 3: Nemesis.

Honestly, for a long time I only watched reviews here on gamespot and never cared about the "side" programs. But you and Johnny - Feedbackula is awesome - are insanely funny, and your shows are some of my favourite on the web. So i guess UK ftw? :) (and no, i'm not from the uk)

P.s What about monkey island for next episode?

@Dark_December I second that! Can't believe IO dropped freedom fighters 2 to develop Kane and Lynch. C'mon, really? That game instead of a freedom fighters sequel?

@_Judas_ I also remember those. However I do believe it was in "Hitman 2", not "Hitman: Codename 47" as Danny states in the video.

@Logixyz @_Judas_ You might be right. I often mix and confuse those two Hitman-games together. Great games, though :)

@wavelength121 @crazylooser2003 i remember spending a lot of time figuring them out... I remember one where u had to jump while standing on a board, and then use the laser puller on the board to get shot up into the air
