It's every bit as hilarious as it sounds, and then some.
- For Dungeons & Dragons, Doug and Rob start off with dueling Profion impressions, then Rob soon drops it while Doug declares he's going to keep it up for the entire commentary. And that's just what he does, with Rob occasionally expressing disbelief that he's still doing it, and even though before it's halfway done he's completely run out of material and is just talking as himself with a weird voice. Then they recount the disagreement they had over whether there should be a Doctor Who reference for Tom Baker's appearance, and Rob can't believe he's having a serious discussion with that voice.

- The entire sequence with the flying snake in the Blues Brothers game. "DAH! Oh, hey. DAAAAUGH! DAMMIT!"
Critic: What the hell is this thing anyway? (reading instruction manual) "Snake: A friendly creature, you can jump on its back and control it." (looks up) Does that thing look remotely friendly to you?!?
- Then the snake somehow nudges Elwood off the edge of the platform, which leads to the Critic's Rage Breaking Point ("...He pushed me. He fucking pushed me!

"Oh, concert over?! I'LL SAY IT IS!!!"

[at this point, he’s drowned out by the voice over the loudspeaker]Loudspeaker: Mr. Howard, your toast just came out of the oven. Repeat: your toast just came out of the oven. [during this, the President is mouthing where the explosion occurred and used exaggerated hand movements to indicate than something went “Boom!”.
