The lights are on
When Dan first told me that he was planning an attempt to claim the Guinness world record for longest fighting game marathon I knew that we needed to set up a live stream so that fans could follow along and interact with the Game Informer crew that consisted of Dan Ryckert, Jeff Cork, Tim Turi, and Ben Reeves. But at a certain point I got the itch to do a little bit more. As a fan of Smash Bros. and stupid stunts in general, I thought that it would be a good idea to utilize our two HD cameras and capture some of the insanity on tape so that I could cut together a quick highlight reel. Well, much like the history of Volition video, things quickly spiraled out of control. Hundreds of gigabytes of footage later I realized that I had a full documentary on my hands. I apologize that it took so long (the attempt occurred in March) but I hope that you enjoy this all-encompassing look at what happens when four video game magazine editors attempt to break a Guinness world record by playing Super Smash Bros. Brawl for over 27 consecutive hours.
Note: The video contains some harsh language.

Awesome. Wasn't expecting it till at least tomorrow. Now I can watch it before I go to work tonight. If it decides to load........hmmmmmmm.
One of you guys should play Deus Ex from Human Revolution to Invisible War with also doing the side missions for the next GM :)
That documentary is pure gold. Nice choice of music. And that mac and cheese pizza looks too delicious. And the struggle with saying Free for All. And the very last part XD.
Totally worth the wait!
