Default The Game Grumps Thread

Title says all.

For those who don't know, Game Grumps is a YouTube video series that started in July 2012 that features Arin Hanson ( also known by his internet name of Egoraptor, of Sequilitis and Awesome Series fame) along with Jon Jafari ( Creator of the JonTron series of videos). It was announced when they had posted videos on their respective channels announcing the series ( also noting that it would not affect their main channels), where they both play games and joke around while playing them. The first games they played were the Super Nintendo games, Kirby Super Star, Zelda A Link To The Past and Mega Man 7. But later started to play other games such as Goof Troop ( SNES), Pokemon Emerald ( GBA), Secret of Mana ( SNES) and also plan to play the Nintendo 64 game, Conker's Bad Fur Day. The series has gained internet fame coming in at over 7 million video vews, 100,000 subscribers and multiple recurring jokes. The series has been documented as on official meme on the Know Your Meme website.

Many of the popular quotes include
" Pause Balls"
" Seven Asses"
" I got Ice hair"
" Bump butts with him!"
" This games boopin"
" This is the boopinest game I've ever played"
and many more.

If you look at the Goof Troop SNES Wikipedia edit history, you will see people editing the page to put in stuff like " This game is mostly known for being simultaneously the boopinest and co-opinest game ever" someone even put Jontron and Egoraptor as the games composers. Someone put Gabe Newell as the programmer, but I don't know what that was for. It actually got locked due to vandalism. People even put seven asses all over the Mega Man 7 page, but that didn't get locked....... yet.

Anyway, Gyorg Lopez.

I'm happy they made more people aware of Goof Troop.
That game is crazy fun.

I like JonTron.
I like Egoraptor.

When I saw them create the Game Grumps series, I jumped on it! So far, I watched a bit of LttP and Mega Man 7, and I watched more of Kirby Super Star and Goof Troops.

The series is funny, but I missed a couple of episodes so far. I should watch them.

One of my favorite quotes is from Goof Troop - The Treasure Room - Part 11 at 8:30 in to the video.

Jon: Susie is our pet goose.
Ego ( Suzie): HAANGK.
Jon: Oh Hey Suzie!
Ego: HaaanGK.
Jon: Susie you're sounding a bit horse, JUST KIDDING, you're a goose!
Ego: hhhhaangk.
Jon: That's like the sickest goose in history.

Yeah, it's really funny! I showed it to my sister and we had a good laugh, then we started watching their Pokemon Emerald LP. Man, it's one of the bests so far. Here's one of the best parts of episode 1... (language + Game Grumps spoiler)

My favorite playthrough was Goof Troop. It actually got me to buy a Model 2 SNES and the game itself yesterday.

I'd love it if Jon made videos beyond Game Grumps, but at least these don't suck.

There Emerald playthrough is still the best thing ever. Jon:"F-YEAH GEORGE LOPEZ LEVELED UP! I get this series now!"

Added after 13 minutes:

and then Jontron uploads a new video! Yay

it's okay, jon already does a good enough job of sharing his awful opinions in these videos~ heehee

and right now i'm really thinking that they need to put another co-op action game into the rotation. that's been their best material thus far, and i'm not sure why they're not doing it

I'm starting to think that they've peaked some how. Megaman 7 looks like a fun game to play, but not so much to watch. Nothing will beat the hilarity of Goof Troop. A game with multiplayer would be a step back in the right direction.

I kind of want that to happen too since Jon openly stated that Banjo Kazooie is one of his favorite games of all time. It would certainly lead to one massive and hilarious argument

I love Egoraptor. I love Jontron. But they need to realize them playing a game and talking about the game and making random jokes will not automatically be comedy gold. I like the episodes of Game Grumps where they're playing co-op games together and commenting on the gameplay and such instead of Ego/Jon playing the game and the other person going "REMEMBER THIS GAG IN GIRL-CHAN IN PARADISE WASN'T THAT FUNNY HAHAHAHAH"

But it's true. That part Egoraptor said about the Monkey telling him he can't reach him was ******ed.

He just plays too much Megaman X and hates 3D games.

He also doesn't like DKC, so **** his opinions. ;_;

dude it's just because they haven't been reading the text in, like, any game

anyone who knows how ego feels about games can tell you that banjo kazooie is absolutely not a game he would like

that combined with the fact that jon is super scared about ego not liking it makes them playing it on the show a recipe for disaster

they should either play games they both like or games neither of them have played

I don't know about you, but I would love seeing them get into an argument while playing.

nah i dunno if it'd even be a funny joking thing

jon clearly REALLY likes banjo kazooie and it's just not the kind of game ego likes, yet jon wants to hear ego's opinion on it

but still, i'd have to wait and see

i do have to agree that ego's being a bit more critical on the game than he has to be already (and i say that as someone who thinks that banjo kazooie has some glaring design flaws), but that may partly be due to how much jon is raving over it and telling ego about what parts are awesome

jon should really just let ego play if he's so intent on having him try it

edit: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gKYLKUoVohI

oh hey good back to kirby

...

wtf did ego just say donkey kong country has no challenge

Great! ... er, It could be, I guess. New Super Mario Bros. Wii isn't exactly a game I'd want to watch someone play, regardless of how fun these people are. The video wasn't as boopin' as I had hoped.

I like how they've spent the entire playthrough explaining why it sucks.
Also, they need to stop their Mana one. Mana is a fun game but it's boring as **** to watch.

The New Super Mario Bros. Wii video was awful. It was mostly them bashing the game for not having the magic the older games had. If they're going to do that, why not actually play the older games that they would enjoy? The game isn't that fun to watch in the first place.

Loving Game Grumps VS.

I'm ashamed of myself for not posting on this topic any sooner... But I think now's the time, because JonTron is leaving Game Grumps!



What's with Jon's hair?!

Also, wait, are you for serious, Jon isn't going to be part of Game Grumps anymore? I can't believe this! I mean, Game Grumps without JonTron... It's hardly Game Grumps... He and Arin make the perfect duo, I don't even...

...Also, who's this new guy? Maybe I'll get to know him like I get to know JonTron. After all, I never even heard of JonTron before Game Grumps, and now I think he's pretty hilarious! So I'll give this new guy a shot, in the first of the episodes featuring him, Mike Tyson's Punch-Out!!



...DAMMIT, the intro doesn't sound right without Jon! :'( (it doesn't even look right, like it's animated weird)

...Though I have to admit, he really made a first impact, burping in his very first appearance... Got, Jon would always get upset with Arin, burping on the show. Then again, he farts a lot, sometimes directly into the mike... DAMMIT, I miss him too much already!

Eh, it was fun while it lasted.

Haven't watched the new video yet, but evidently the new guy is a lot like Ego? Don't think that'll work quite as well from a comedic standpoint. I'm getting a hunch, though, that perhaps from the start Arin wanted the show to be more about analyzing games, and perhaps that's what he's going for now. If that's what's going on, I'd be down.

edit: the more important issue at hand is the implications this has for the vgcw anyways

Well let's be honest, Game Grumps was getting crappy anyway. I watched the one video with the new guy and it wasn't that bad though, but eh. Jontron videos are much more funnier IMHO.

I was actually just on another forum, and the guy there said he doesn't watch Game Grumps anymore, mostly because Jon and Arin kept inserting their opinions on games and doing an incredibly poor job justifying them. He said that Arin's by far the worst offender of this, particular since he doesn't act NEARLY as competent as he does in his Sequelitis videos (in his Mega Man X video, he says gamers are not dumb enough to need to be told what to do through tutorials, yet he's constantly confused about games when he skips them; plus, he implies in that same video that a gamer's first instinct when playing a game is to try all the buttons, yet they never even thought to push X while playing Milky Way Wishes in Kirby Super Star).

I will admit, I think things went downhill around the time they started playing games people sent them, as opposed to games they've played and know about, or can figure out relatively easily. That doesn't mean there hasn't been any good playthroughs since then, I really enjoyed Chulip and Super Star Wars, but, you know, I guess you take the bad with the good.

watched the ode to jon and just started punchout

i like the new guy! he recognizes that cyborg 003 is a total ****.

and although jon's yelling has led to some funny moments, it's kinda nice to have... jokes, i guess. so yeah. i like it so far.

edit: okay not so keen on this whole "putting another show on the channel" thing tho

Yeah, losing JonTron was enough, but introducing a WHOLE NEW SHOW as soon as he leaves? This is just too much to take in!

Err yeah. That may have been something to not immediately show while we are still getting used to the new guy...
EDIT:I mean fair enough if this doesn't conflict with the regular vids, but considering one of the cast of the new show is the new guy on GG, and assuming Barry is still the editor, it might start to conflict if the new show takes as much popularity as the old one...

I'm seeing people saying that people who said they wanted JonTron to make more of his own videos and are now unsubscribing from GameGrumps are hypocrites. I'm not exactly sure what's hypocritical about that. If they're mostly fans of Jon, of course they'd unsub after he leaves. It doesn't mean that they're upset that Jon is making more of his own videos instead of more GameGrumps.

Hey guys, this video was on RubberRoss's YouTube channel:



...So apparently, JonTron was still mean to be part of the Game Grumps when this was filmed... What happened?!

Oh lawd, it's like they just stabbed the viewers, then just took a piss on their bleeding body. This just went from sad to friggen hilarious in one day.

Well done, Game Grumps, well friggen done.

eh, stuff like this happens a lot with internet shows.

People should try to give the new guy a chance but I feel like the Game Grumps name shouldn't have been kept if the duo isn't the same.

I feel bad, the new show probably was planned a while ago and just came out at a very bad time. People don't even know if it is any good yet and immediately it is getting torn to pieces.

That new hotline miami episode is probably the worst grump related thing ever

To make things worse, the framerate is really low and they were using the gamepad

According to this, which MIGHT be true, but I'm not sure:

Found this on the Grump Facebook page. Guy in red has a job at Rodeo Arcade listed in his profile. Rodeo Arcade is the place that does their shirts, obviously this can't be verified 100%. : gamegrumps

Jon may have left, not ONLY to focus more on JonTron episodes, but also to move closer to his girlfriend, who apparently made an animated Game Grumps short.

If word gets out, they're going to blame Jon's new girlfriend, and start being dicks because of it. I'd LIKE to think people are better then that, but come on, this is the Game Grumps fandom we're talking about.

At least they finished Sonic 06 together... Looking forward to that ending!

...Wait, if Jon's moving... Is Barry going with him? He's Jon's roommate... But then again, if he's just a roommate, that doesn't mean he HAS to go everywhere with Jon? Still, it's weird, he got into Game Grumps and became their editor BECAUSE of Jon... Such a strange situation this is...

I'm pretty sure she did two of them. But I guess she deleted the other one.

Barry confirmed that there will be no more Sonic '06 on Twitter. Or at least with Jon. Which means the rumor of them finishing it is false. Which would mean that the rumor of Jon moving to New York also may not be true. Which makes this whole situation even more unexplainable. It just seems weird for Jon to leave without some kind of finale. And the last few videos uploaded with Jon don't really hint at him leaving at all. So, it seems really strange that they wouldn't try to put some kind of "final Jon episode" or something up before announcing he would leave. Especially if he might not actually be moving and will still be around.

I think the "Jon final episode" is the Pacific Rim one coming up.

...But that really, absolutely sucks to hear. I mean, Jon was the one who insisted that they finish it. All that work, all those hours, LITERAL hours of playing that game, and they're not going to finish it?!

Edit: Could you post the original Tweet, so I can see it for myself?

it's not like it's impossible for jon to go back to la and visit arin. to be honest, i'd be surprised if he didn't visit him some day and they just sit down and finish sonic.

also i'm betting that thing about moving to new york with his girlfriend is true. just seems to make the most sense given what we know

I read somewhere that Sonic is already done its just that all of the episodes haven't been put up but are recorded.

According to some other GameStation(where Jontron and Game Grumps are both partnered under) employees, the reason why Jontron left GG is a personal matter that probably won't be stated.

So yeah it is probably the girlfriend thing.

Barry's tweet: https://twitter.com/razzadoop/status/350468325710643200
A message from Jon's girlfriend:

And it still seems odd that it'd go from one day with the videos ending with Jon saying "next time on Game Grumps" and the next, him suddenly leaving. And regardless of the quality of Steam Train, I still don't think it should be uploaded to the Grump channel.

That really is something they should have handled better. I really want to know what the mindset was when all of this happen. I'm sure they must have known people would be upset about Jon leaving, but do you think they might have anticipated this kind of backlash?

BTW, thanks for posting those.

As much as I want Jon to focus more and more on his show, I will miss the amazing chemistry between Jon and Arin.

Hopefully, the new Game Grump will be great.

Danny's alright. But half the time, he's just responding to Arin by saying "yeah totally" and screaming "eat a dick".

That was essentially Jon last I checked, so he's doing pretty good as a replacement

I think he can be pretty funny on his own. He's made a storm of great jokes and one-liners in just a couple episodes, and even made Arin seriously crack up for the first time in ages. Really looking forward to what games they play next.

Thing is, his "yeah totally"s and his generally passive behaviour kinda take the punch out of Grumps. Jon was never afraid to get into arguments with Arin even when they were first starting out, and I think that made them more interesting to watch because their volatile friendship felt so much more believable. Danny and Arin are a little too polite with each other, like it's as if every video is the first time they met. Now that may be exaggerating a little, but that's the overall vibe I get from New Grumps.

But who knows, maybe that ice will be broken once they play a co-op or competitive game. The show started to grow the beard when Jon and Arin played Goof Troop; that could happen again once Dan and Arin play a similar game together.

I have to admit, I really enjoyed seeing Danny beat Super Mario Bros. 2. It's nice to see the Grumps actually COMPLETE a game for once.

I also enjoyed the Karate Kid episode. Like DAMN, Danny has skills beyond belief! ...No doubt it's just one of the 5 games he's good at, but still, isn't it nice to see someone on Game Grumps actually be GOOD at the game they claim to be good at?

Not really. That was half the fun of Game Grumps. There are plenty of other channels out there with people who are actually good at games.

Fine, maybe 'arguments' wasn't the right word, but Jon and Arin definitely shared a more volatile relationship. Even in ALttP you can hear them fling a few light-hearted insults at each other, whereas Ego and Dan always seem to be trying their hardest to not bug each other. The lack of snarkiness between them really makes their interactions that much less interesting.

Well, if the comments section is anything to go by, one of the biggest pet peeves of the fanbase, myself included, is when they claim to be good at games and end up sucking big time. Even worse is when they skip over tutorials and hints and get lost and confused, and end up blaming the game for not being obvious enough about what you're supposed to do.

So this is a nice change of pace, though I'm sure it's only a matter of time until we see Danny play a game he's never played before and starts to suck as well.

Jontron will be on the gamestation podcast soon

dunno when though, and the episodes are weekly, so "soon" could mean a month, but Jon will be on that. Don't expect anything about him leaving GameGrumps though apparently, but this is something.

Why don't they go back to making their original videos as well? They even addressed this in one of their commercials for Game Grumps merch. Game Grumps can be funny and interesting, but I really wish that they would go back to their original channels and upload some videos. Game Grumps can still happen, yes, but I personally don't think we need three Game Grumps episodes every night and not get a single video from either JonTron or Eggraptor in months.

Although JonTron as a guest on the Gamestation podcast must be a good sign. Hopefully we'll hear a little bit of the old JonTron. But if Game Grumps is all JonTron and Eggraptor are going to do, I'll be fine with the way it's turning out. It's a mediocre to pretty funny gaming show.

Added after 6 minutes:

500 posts hooray!

Jon posted a new video on his super secret other channel.

And never mind, it's private.

Hey you want more Game Grumps with Jon?

Well here's a Pacific Rim promotion they did with some other members of TheGameStation/Polaris



EDIT:And Jontron will be on TheGameStation podcast this week and will be on the same channel listed about Friday.

Today is the one-year anniversary if the Game Grumps...

Wow... It's so weird... I never would have thought that one year ago, I'd find something I'd watch ever day without fail... There have definitely been some changes along the way... Shame JonTron couldn't have stayed on this long... It feels so strange, too, I remember when I first started watching this stuff... It was such a blast. It still is in a way...

Way to go, Game Grumps. Keep grumping on for another year and more!

I watched a few of their series back when they started the channel last year. They were funny enough to make me subscribe, but I haven't really paid attention to them until Jon left. That sort of reignited my interest in the show, and now I watch an episode or two each day whenever I feel like laying back and watching two grown men suck at video games.

I only watched Sonic 06 with Jon. Been watching much more of them now that he was replaced. Not that I don't like Jon, his Jontron videos are great, but him and Arin just don't mix well for me honestly.

I've pretty much watched on and off since the start because I liked Egoraptor, and I think they're generally pretty funny. I've liked the direction they've been going lately as well, and Arin and Danny have good chemistry. In general, it's something I watch in bursts.

Is anyone else slightly frustrated watching the Super Mario Sunshine playthrough? The recent episode was pretty good, IMO, though I'm constantly annoyed, since a lot of the solutions feel really obvious to me, since I've played it a million times (though admittedly it's been a long time since I last played it). It also annoys me how Arin will make fun of arrows and pointing out what you're supposed to do, even though honestly, I think he needs those.

Also, I just want to add, I freaking love Steam Train, and I love Ross!

Only saw a few episodes. I need to get back into them for the episodes I did see were hilarious.

I haven't watched Game Grumps that much recently (mostly due to me being busy with other stuff, I've missed a ton of stuff from March to June as well). But the recent episodes I've seen are gold. Dennis the Menace's Mr. Wilson rap was amazing. And the Kirby's Epic Yarn playthrough just has this charm to it (shame to see it's been put on hold for now).

So someone just posted this on a Game Grumps topic on another forum I go to:



I think it might of had to do with the latest Trine 2 Steam Train episode, though I'm not sure if they were referring to exactly that. I assumed such because... well, I wasn't really paying attention myself, but a lot of people hated it, saying that they just kept doing the same thing, expecting different results.

Indeed, this seems a lot like how the Grumps (though mostly Arin and formerly Jon) do stuff. You know, at least I can understand Danny not being all that good at video games, since he admitted to only being good at, like, five of them, and I didn't take him as being an experienced gamer. And I just plane can't bring myself to hate Ross, since Danny and Arin crap on him all the time (as I like to call it, the Dr. Zoidberg Syndrome). Arin and Jon, on the other hand, primarily focus on video games with what they do, Jon with his video reviews, and Arin with his animations and "Sequelitis" videos. So it makes it all the more jarring to see them suck as badly as they typically do.

So there's yet ANOTHER spin-off on Polaris, this one starring Barry and Suzy, called "Table Flip", where they'll be playing tabletop games. The first game they're playing, along with Arin, Danny, and Ross, is "Cards Against Humanity:

Part 1:

Part 2:
http://www.polarisgo.com/video/MRIAS.../latest/page/0

Part 3:
http://www.polarisgo.com/video/JRYoN.../latest/page/0

Oh my gosh, this is hilarious! :lol:

How did Game Grumps go through 20 10 minute episodes of pokemon emerald and barely get past the 2nd gym?

Because they had even less focus then they do now. Somehow, I get the impression that JonTron was holding them back. Or maybe it would have been the same regardless; they did say that Suzy was brought on to manage and schedule what they would do and when they'd do it. I have to admit, if there IS one thing I like about new Game Grumps, it's that they're actually striving to finish their games!

This I hope Windwanker is back soon. I guess They took a break like they did with Epic Yarn but came back to it.

On a side note we need more Grumpcasts!

I watch them from time to time. If they play a game I am interested in o may start watching. I watched the whole Sonic the Hedgehog playthrough, which was hilarious for example.
I really am glad that jontron left as I really liked his work when being alone and I believe the Gamegrumps held him back. I believe the same for egoraptor but in a smaller degree.
I like the new formation. Danny and Aarin are pretty funny and enjoy series like Mario sunshine and kirbys epic yarn.

I love Jontron. He is so funny. He hasn't recovered since the gamegrumps though. He still takes a lot of time to make videos.

He said that over a year ago. Hell, it's almost 2 years at this rate. But that aside...



Oh my God... could it be? Will the legacy of ****, I, Soon?, and GeorgLopez live on?! Regardless, they should at LEAST get two badges in this playthrough.

...Also, the names aren't QUITE as funny in this one, other then "I never".

That's a little unfair given that they've only given out 3 names, one of which was a misspelling.

That's true... and we didn't even get "Soon?" until the second episode of Pokemon Emerald... Still, I think JonTron's brand of naming is a lot more surreal and funny then Danny's.

I really liked their recent PunchOut series and I cannot wait for them to come back to it.
I kinda like the Shadow of the Colossus. They are really funny in this one.

yes, I prefer Jon's videos that Gamegrumps videos with Jon in them.
I also liked some of Egoraptor's videos a lot but he ain't returning. He teased a new Sequelitis video though...

He teased that sequelitis at MAGfest 2013 as well. I wouldn't be counting on that as a "coming soon" type deal.

Arin's been talking about doing a new Sequelitis since around the time Game Grumps started.

New Table Flip

It's Game Grumps playing cards against humanity again, but with with a "random" player which is just picking a card from the deck and submitting it with everyone else.

Someone put up a demo for a Game Grumps fangame they're working on. Just one world with four levels and a boss in the demo. Had some fun with it, and I really like the music. Can't wait to see the final game.

Disney buys Maker Studios

What does this mean for Game Grumps? Well they work for Polaris which is a part of Maker Studios.

Game Grumps is now owned by Disney.

Akiraru is best girl. I was honestly worried for a while that they weren't going to finish the "game".

So, it seems like they might be done with FireRed because they lost so much footage.

I made some thumbnails of games they might have played if Jon stayed a bit longer (I do still like Dan though):

Normal Boots people. I know we'll never see Jon ever but I hope they have PBG on at some point.

It's not a big deal to me. Actually, it opened new funny opportunities to them (like giving it a name and some sort of personality in the SMB series). People who got legitimately upset about it probably forgot that Game Grumps has been an entertainment business since its beginning.

I like the Next Episode button tho. I started SMB when they were at 4 episodes, and I just clicked that thing at the end of each episode, when the "TV" turned off.

So this episode happened:



And just in case any of you have a Nintendo 3DS or Wii U and thus have a Miiverse account:

https://miiverse.nintendo.net/posts/...AADRUqGL0VI3Ug



Edit: Comic-Con Q & A:

http://www.maker.tv/video/IcyEzGcAHV...ries/comic-con

So they have something "really special" planned in regards to Guest Grumps... dang, that's exciting!

Like, it sucks that the only Guest Grumps done is with Grant Kirkhope, they really should do more... though considering Jon isn't there anymore, will they do a different intro tune? I was thinking when they commented having Weird Al on Game Grumps during their playthrough of DecapAttack (and they said their people are in talks with Weird Al's people in having him guest star on GG as well as Ninja Sex Party), Weird Al could do an accordion rendition of the intro! ...And I totally think it's possible for him to be on Game Grumps, since he guest stars in a bunch of other stuff like crazy!

Also, Pictionary, freaking hilarious stuff! Especially when Ross and Arin kept drawing pictures of each other! XD
