    Lived in the WNY area most of my life, this is just one of these episodes which hit us every 10 years or so. We will be back in business pretty quickly and most people won't be too effected except those who over-exert and suffer cardio/vascular problems. By far the worst such event here occurred here in Jan. 1977 where the drifts covered the tops of telephone poles.

    I was born and raised in Buffalo......was in the blizzard of 77....the amount of snow dumped in this storm is crazy ! Prayers for safety!

    I guess that no one remembers the Blizzard of 77... over 8 feet of snow fell in about 24 hours and combined with high winds to make drifts of up to 40 feet. I lived in a 3rd floor apartment, and the snow was just short of our balcony. In many cases it reached up to rooftops. The wind pounded the snow into the engine compartment of my brand-new car, and it wouldn't start until we dug out the snow. Cars that pulled off the roads were literally buried, and it took weeks to find and dig them out.
    Hope you all fare better this time, but never underestimate the snow in Buffalo!

    It’s interesting from an engineering perspective, because in Minnesota (my home state), you’ll never really see a thick snow covered roof on a house. They are all designed to be taller and steeper so the snow falls off when it gets too heavy. I suppose they don’t build them like that out near the coasts because it normally isn’t necessary. Crazy how much a few feet of snow can weigh, let alone six…

    I hope everyone stays as safe as possible there. I was a student at Buffalo State College in 2002-2004 and I remember the snow we got those winters and being mad we still had to go to class, lol. I’ve never seen anything like this. I live in Fl now so I have to deal with tropical storms and hurricanes every once in awhile. God bless you guys. Buffalo has a special place in my ❤.

    This was actually a really fun list to watch. I definitely agree that movement in these types of games is one of the most important and impactful aspects that most people sort of overlook.

    It's a way of life here. I live in Oswego my whole life, and nasty winters are a cost of living here. We've been fortunate for too long with mild winters. Now it's like the winters I remember when I was a child. Extreme wind chills and massive amounts of snow. This is nothing new or surprising for us. We make due, clear out the snow, and go on with life. But investing in a snowblower and snowmobile are highly recommended. Stay safe and warm to all my fellow snowbelters.

    This story is genuinely so heart wrenching as an only kid with a single dad. The relationship between a father and a daughter is unique and special, and I know my dad isn't

    Born and raised just across the lake from there up in the mountains and when I was young (almost 3/4 of a century ago now) this was not that uncommon! When we got hit by storms like this in my area you'd wake up several times a night to check your roofs and if the snow was building up too much you'd get up there and shovel it off then go down and shovel a fresh path to the doors enough you could get out if you wanted too.. This is why if you look at MOST older homes the outside doors almost always swung in!

    When I was a kid we used to build snow forts with tunnels running underneath. A great place to play. ☃⛄
  • Something that I appreciate about Mark is how he focuses so much on other projects/his daily life, but when he sits down to play a game like this you can tell that he still really cares about being serious about it--since he cares about us. It also shows that he really loves what he does, which is so much easier to watch than someone who is just throwing out half-assed content to hit the deadlines. We appreciate both your hustle and staying true to what's important, Mark.

    I'm happy that you are not only covering this but also will be donating and then helping to fund counter sueing Billy.
    I've been watching Karl for years now, he's great! Not only good content but seemingly a very good, humble human being. :-)

    one of the best thing about dude is that he never takes credit for himself when he achieves something. He always respect us the audience and his team, and he is polite in all his video's we congratulate ourselves on this achievementvh 8-)

    As a fellow cat owner and lover, I find it touching how you honored Bobes.Cute logo too! Congratulations on 10k subs! Your lineups helped me climb and I'm close to Diamond. :'(

    I love how he can never disappoint us with his content

    A note to add, When Brok dies and we see Sindri at Tyr's temple, we can see that Sindri is working with his hands rather than the gloves we've come to know him wearing. I think this is an homage to the first game when Atreus asks why Brok is blue, Sindri replies that it's because Brok didn't wear gloves. Sindri is honoring Brok's way of craftmanship, and working the way Brok preferred to remember him.

    I love how Markiplier went from an awkward, shy nerdy guy to an awkward, shy nerdy guy that's hot enough to make steel boil. He didn't let his glow up affect his personality outside of maybe being a tad more confident. Dude is a beacon of positivity and integrity. :-P

    Wow, years ago I helped clear the roof of a split level home, after which you could step from roof to packed snow. Then we had to find a spot to slide down to the drive. Our area didn't have snow plows, they had huge snow blowers on the front of dump trucks that blew the snow up to 40 feet between houses.

    Now this is literally the perfect chance to say, “when I was your age, I had to travel through 77’’ of snow.”

    I was rolling on the floor the entire episode: the bad anvil pun, the quick cut from copper mining to Tango's farm, Scar, the LOLcat discovery, everything! Such a blast. ;-)
