We recorded this game a couple of weeks ago. Now here is the final product of that endeavor. The Spoiler Warning all-stars in an eight-player pre-recorded live broadcast of Left 4 Dead 2, versus mode, using Left 4 Dead 1 levels. Here is the final footage, edited together to give you the viewpoints of both teams.
I think we’ve agreed that we’re not doing this again anytime soon. While it makes for hilarious footage, it actually requires a major investment of time to cut together two separate feeds, plus two audio tracks, plus the audio track from the Livestream to fix patches where people were cut off or muted. Also, I don’t know if our friendships can withstand this level of sadistic curb-stomping of team Pro Strat vs. Team Newbie.
This weekend we MAY actually begin our Mass Effect 3 season. The time is right. However, I have it on good authority that certain members of the cast have been saying they will, “Start [my] play-through, probably tomorrow,” for almost a month now. Credulity being in finite supply, I am beginning to doubt this will actually happen. We’ll see.

His problem isn't that he's dumb, the problem is that he bends the world he inhabits.
