Why are we not provided with a download link for this video?

I've always loved having hard copies to watch offline.

It has to get uploaded to a separate place for downloading and for iTunes, and that could take a bit longer since the video was uploaded from Seattle. Hang in there!

Your videos are always so educational! I never knew that an ass ton was actually smaller than a metric ton. :)

Seriously, great job guys. I really liked the way the change-up in audio quality between the music/narration and the interviewees really nailed the feel of that style of documentary. Did that require deliberate effort on your part, or was it just a natural consequence of the way you filmed it?

Does the lack of a download link relate to the lack of a feed update? As in, I didn't even realize there was an update til just now because iTunes didn't find any new feed content.

And I just realized that I should definitely be checking the website more often.

Finally, GO YAHTZEE!

Oh, interesting side note. There has been a confirmed case of H1N1 at PAX, according to their Twitter. Several attendees have been showing symptoms. Might be a good time to wash those hands...

I liked the general atmosphere of the video, it was funny without being the gaggy type of humor.

Also, I think that Yahtzee did a superb impression of that one older English man who is the usual one to narrate videos on nature, David Attenborough.

Why is everyone so shocked? It's not like Greedo is piloting the Millennium Falcon.

It's a game reviewer/comedian guest starring on a video about games written by a comedy group who he is on good terms with and has worked with before.

Edit:
I mean it is cool and all, just not unbelievable. Now, they get Patrick Stewart, I'll shit my pants.

Yeah and then pull what Bethesda did and kill him off in the first few minutes of the video.

Agreed. (Well, not about Alex.. I heard Kelly with a ridiculous accent.) Yahtzee talking slowly reminds me of "King O' Delorean" from "Kingdom O' Magic."
His voice just isn't as strained as the King's.

Very well done video. I didn't even realize it was Yahtzee until I saw other people's surprise in this thread. Obviously I'm blind.

Biggest laugh was definitely the whiteboard, although I was kind of disappointed "ten shitloads" wasn't a measure of game wildlife.
