Game Grumps/Steam Train Thread

6,012 posts in this topic

Game Grumps gets more subscribers in a week than most people will get in their entire lives, and their view counts are only going up each Youtube report (just Googling it quick).  It's just a Let's Play channel, if you want to know why they're discontinuing some of their "shows", it's probably because they have a massive amount of available footage to edit and they're just getting a little bored of them.  There's such a thing as changing up a Youtube channel, you know.

Interestingly enough, Ross has been doing his own Let's Play of Sun/Moon with his wife Commander Holly on her channel, and apparently they've already arrived at the first Team Skull battle (according to Ross' retweets anyways, I haven't watched it). Meanwhile, Arin and Ross are still fucking around somewhere on Route 1, and they're like 16 episodes in.

I told myself I'd stop watching around the 15th episode, but I think I'm done with it now.

I feel like there's kind of a limit you reach for watching Arin and Dan having 10+ episodes of just fucking around. And when they're stuck at a part and have to do it repeatedly you're just like "yeah okay nvm" because it gets boring.

I don't want to sound like I hate the Grumps or anything because I don't, they're still an important interest of mine, but the direction they're going in just isn't working for me. Even though I dislike Ross, there are still a lot of old Steam Train episodes that I like, especially when he played with Dan. But without Steam Train or Grumpcade I don't really care for what "new" thing they're planning...

How often do you guys rewatch playthroughs? I actually rewatch a lot of older playthroughs that Jon's in, but there aren't a whole lot of Arin and Danny playthroughs that I feel have a lot of rewatchability (idk if that's a word, but you know what i mean lol). I like the Goonies 2 playthrough, and watching highlights of playthroughs like Kirby's Epic Yarn and some of the Mario games, but not much else. Old Steam Train episodes with Danny and Ross are still good to watch too, like all the Sierra games and whatnot.

I'm rewatching A Link to the Past with Arin and Dan right now, and I was watching FireRed a while back too. I don't go back to a lot of Jon episodes for some reason.

There are a few episodes I revisit from time to time, mostly Tired Grumps/Sleep Train. I also like the Jon-era Godzilla and TMNT fighters and that one episode of Megaman 7 where they choke on compressed air.

As a general statement, Arin + Dan oughta do more prior research on games they're playing blind.

Their Goof Troop playthrough is perfect, definitely my favorite GG series ever. Their Donkey Kong Country episodes are good too, other than the fact that Jon has such a huge nostalgia boner for them, which gets a bit annoying (for me anyway). Their Mario Party episodes are a real hoot as well.

I rewatch the old Jon era Grumps frequently. Goof Troop is up there, but I think Zombies Ate My Neighbors is my favorite series. The chaotic nature of that game barely gives them a chance to catch their breath and the commentary is hilarious for it. Their Mario Party series are by far the best VS videos, so many good moments in all the games, I'll never forget that chin bit in the Mario Party 2 Revengeance finale. Sonic 06 is also a really good series still, there might be some dull episodes but it has some of the most classic moments. I rewatch a few Dan era videos, but not nearly as much as I do Jon episodes, a lot of the early Dan one-offs like Dennis the Menace and Pac Attack are gold.

Yeah, there are a lot of good Dan one-offs, like Mickey Mousecapade. I like when they play obscure games that neither of them know anything about because it provides for a really fun experience. My favorite Jon episode was the fucking Mary Kate and Ashley Sweet Sixteen or whatever, which I like to rewatch often

Is this really what's going to become of the middle slot? At least with Steam Train and Grumpcade there was a sense of variety.

It's interesting to hear Arin talk about the game, but he really has to stop that voice he uses for every female character.

I've hated Arin's "girl" voice for years. Like... That's the kind of voice you do as a joke. A particularly obnoxious one. But he does it for every female character, as if they actually sound like that.

Arin-only episodes aren't even a part of the middle slot, just one of the two daily episodes now. So it's great if you like Arin, but if not.... ehhh... Why wouldn't he play Chrono Trigger with Danny though? Or if they want an RPG, go back to Secret of Mana? Danny can't possibly be that busy with music and stuff, unless it's like, personal/family stuff keeping him busy for some reason, who the hell knows. Guess we'll get more stuff in the middle slot eventually, but until then, the channel's gonna be pretty dry.

Anywho, back to reminiscings of the Jon-era, Dead Space 3 will forever be one of the channel's greatest one-offs.

It's not a one-off but the Nickelodeon GUTS Vrs. series will forever be burned into my memory because at one point Arin gets legitimately furious at Jon and Jon is fucking terrified. You can even hear him chuck his controller down in rage. Man, that era was something else.
