[[caption-width-right:142:"We are not your ordinary band of Let's Players."]]

''[[http://www.youtube.com/user/TheEastCoastFour The East Coast Four]]'' is a collaborative group of Let's Players on [=YouTube=] comprised of {{LetsPlay/MageCaptainGilshanks}}, [[http://www.youtube.com/user/Fieryredhair08 Fieryredhair08]], [[http://www.youtube.com/user/korafoya Korafoya]], and {{LetsPlay/ChaosSinfulRose}}, [[{{Exactly What It Says on the Tin}} who all live on the east coast]] of the United States. Gilshanks is in charge of editing and uploading the videos. They always update on Mondays and Fridays with approximately 30 minute videos.

Their first race, ''VideoGame/SuperMarioWorld'', began on March 25, 2013. The race ended on April 26, 2013, with [[spoiler:Chaos]] as the winner.

Their second race was in ''VideoGame/MegamanX2'', which began on April 29, 2013. It ended on May 6, 2013, with [[spoiler:Chaos]] as the winner.

Their third race, was in ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaALinkToThePast''. In this race, they split up into two teams, [[WesternAnimation/AvatarTheLastAirbender Team Avatar]] (Kora and Gilshanks) and Team Fiery Chaos ([[CaptainObvious Fiery]] [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin and Chaos]]) and was later changed to [[WesternAnimation/AvatarTheLastAirbender The Fire Nation]] by Gilshanks. For the first half of the game, Kora and Chaos will be playing, with Gilshanks and Fiery switching in halfway through. It ended on June 14, 2013, with [[spoiler:Gilshanks and Kora : Team Avatar]] as the winners.

After over 6 months of hiatus, the team returned with a Mario Kart Wii Round Robin Tournament, which began on January 17, 2014 with special guest Super Xenark. The official standings of the tournament are as follows:
* [[spoiler: 1st: Chaos]]
* [[spoiler: 2nd: Kora]]
* [[spoiler: 3rd: Fiery]]
* [[spoiler: 4th: S. Xenark]]
* [[spoiler: 5th: Gilshanks]]

Their current project is a ''VideoGame/SuperMarioBros3'' race with 3 different booby traps and Super Mario 3D World, which is their first co-operative LP.

!!Their Let's Play videos have provided examples of:
[[foldercontrol]]

[[folder:General]]
* AnvilOnHead: Starting with the A Link to the Past Race, an anvil is dropped on a member's screen when another member takes the lead.
* BattleCouple: If Gilshanks and Fiery are on the same team, they qualify as this.
* ButtMonkey: If Gilshanks ever insults someone, it's probably Fiery.
** Kora towards Part 8 of the Super Mario World race.
* FirstNameBasis: Originally averted, but later played straight starting in the later parts of Super Mario World. Later, subverted when they start referring to each other by their screen names again. Now played 50/50 with both first names and screen names being used.
* FiveManBand:
** TheLeader: Gilshanks
** TheLancer: Fiery
** TheSmartGuy: Chaos
** TheChick: Kora
* LargeHam: '''MAAAAAGE CAPTAIN GILSHANKS!'''
* NoIndoorVoice: Fiery is the most guilty of this in the Super Mario World race. It was so bad that she apologized for it and vowed to take it down a notch in later videos.
** Gilshanks in episode 5 of A Link To the Past, and to a slightly lesser extent, episode 8 of Super Mario World.
* RunningGag: Starting in Super Mario World, Fiery is apparently Gilshanks' mother, which becomes weird when the two started dating in real life.
** Korafoya is actually the [[WesternAnimation/TheLegendOfKorra Avatar]] neglecting his duties.
* ScreenShake: Done to a member's screen when they rage during a race.
* ShoutOut: All four members have a habit of referencing [[LetsPlay/{{Versus}} Josh Jepson and AttackingTucans's own race Let's Plays.]]
* ThatsWhatSheSaid: When dealing with a group of 3 guys and 1 girl, it's bound to happen. Gilshanks rarely passes up an opportunity to point an instance out.
* TheSmurfettePrinciple: Fiery's the only girl in the group.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Super Mario World]]
* ActuallyPrettyFunny: Fiery's response to Gilshanks' suggesting that they clone her and make her race a game agianst herself. They wouldn't even finish the race due to constant rage against each other.

* AndThatsTerrible: Gilshanks claims that he will eat a cat if it bothers him in Part 5. While Kora says he could see Gilshanks doing that, Chaos just laughs and says, "That's horrible."

* BerserkButton: Because Gilshanks is watching his gameplay through his capture card, he rages anytime his screensaver comes on his computer during Part 1.
* ButtMonkey: Kora is this in Part 8.

* DoesThisRemindYouOfAnything: Chaos mentions "cock" in Part 5. Gilshanks then says, "[[{{InsistentTerminology}} Loshi]], you're too slippery," and Fiery also says that he is slippery. Chaos' response: Um...
* TheDrunkenSailor: Not so much a sailor as the ship itself thanks to Chaos' hearing in Part 7.
* EverythingsBetterWithDinosaurs: Brought up by Gilshanks in Part 2 when discussing Loshi.
-->'''Gilshanks:''' We'll sell Loshi. It's like lotion but adorable. * beat* And it comes in dinosaur!
* FanNickname: After Gilshanks misspoke while saying Yoshi in Part 2, all members almost always refer to Yoshi as "Loshi" in-universe
* {{Foreshadowing}}: Gilshanks mentions how hard he finds unlocking Soda Lake to be in Part 3. You can't even imagine how hard of a time he has with [[{{ThatOneLevel}} the level where you unlock it.]]
** Lampshaded with an achievement in-episode.
* IHatePastMe: This is almost the entirety of Part 6, where their commentary is post-commentated.
* LaserGuidedKarma: Kora is just so ecstatic that he has a Blue Yoshi in Part 8... aaaaaaaand it's gone.
* MadeInCountryX: According to Chaos in Part 8, Banzai Bills are made in America.

* NauseaFuel: Gilshanks considers "sucking shit" to this in-universe in the Finale.
* OverlyLongGag: Kora's "AHNOLD" voice in Part 7. He does it for over SEVEN minutes.
* PerfectlyCromulentWord: Chaos gives us "multi-doucheical" in Part 3, apparently describing something that exhibits multiple forms of douchebaggery.

* ScreamsLikeALittleGirl: Most of the time done by Chaos during the race.

* StupidStatementDanceMix: Gilshanks does this in the Finale to Fiery's phrase, "pouchy pooched-out lips."
* TemptingFate: Done by Gilshanks in Part 2. He says he's, "amazed he still has his cape." He then loses it eight seconds later.
* ThatOneLevel: Gilshanks considers Valley Ghost House's secret exit to be his in-universe.
* WithLyrics: Chaos does this to the Castle/Fortress Theme in Part 5.
* WordSaladLyrics: Gilshanks attempted to sing "Chocolate Rain" in Part 7. Everything didn't go as expected.
* YesNoAnswerInterpretation: Done in Part 2 with Loshi.
-->'''Fiery:''' Gilshanks, I could totally take that somewhere.\\
* beat*\\
'''Fiery:''' Loshi: a new brand! Get yours today!\\
'''Kora:''' Are we gonna, like, market Loshis now?\\
'''Fiery:''' GODDAMMIT!\\
'''Kora:''' I think that's a yes.

* CallBack: Loshi is referenced in an achievement in Part 1 after Kora's vehicle is destroyed.
* ClassClown: Kora can't imagine how Chaos' children would be like in Part 1. Chaos speculates that there would be nothing but [[{{LampshadeHanging}} complete gibberish]].
* DudeNotFunny: In-universe, pretty much the reaction to Kora making reference of Alzheimer's in the Finale.

* FindOutNextTime: At the end of Part 1, Gilshanks humorously leaves us with "Thank you guys for watching! Be sure to watch the next one, too!" *cue laughing*
* HypocriticalHumor: Gilshanks tells Kora in Part 2 that, "It's just a game, dude. Calm down," after Gilshanks spent much of the previous part yelling at the game.
** Lampshaded by Fiery when she said, "Says you. Gilshanks, I don't even want to hear that bullshit come out of your mouth."
* MoodWhiplash: These lines concerning kittens in Part 2, which is immediately lampshaded by Chaos.
-->'''Fiery''': Don't be mean to the kitty, or I will come to your house, and I will hurt you.\\
'''Gilshanks''': Don't be mean to the kitty, or I will '''FUCK YOU UP IN YOUR NIGHTMARES.'''
* TakeThat: In Part 1, Gilshanks compares the beetle enemies in Flame Stag's stage to New Jersey driver, 'cause they're both in the way.

'''Fiery''': Oh oh, coming from the Italian himself.\\

[[/folder]]

[[folder:Super Mario 3D World]]
