Watch a video, laugh a little.
Storm Dain Productions is a YouTube channel run by Storm Dain. Initially he made reviews for games on the Wii on a site called Wii.TV, but after his Manhunt 2 video, decided to call them Adventures, as the review had gone too off topic. His videos are humorous in nature and filled with many sketches. He often loses subscribers because of the things he says, such as insulting Rock Band and BioShock, making him a polarizing kinda reviewer.

His videos can be found here.

Provides Examples Of:

  • A Date with Rosie Palms: Storm was able to beat a soda shaking minigame in Mario Party 8 due to having enough practice with the trope.
  • Arch-Nemesis:
    • Miiguel. Whenever mocking him, Storm shows himself in a sombrero saying "Soy el, me whore".
    • Also, the Nyko sensor bar, but he seems to have moved away from that.
  • Author Appeal:
    • BOOBS! He spends a good portion of each God of War game talking about the boobs, and even makes a top five list of the best sex scenes in the games at the end of the adventure.
    • Also, Burnout.
    • Storm also has an admiration towards Princess Peach.
  • Awesome Mc Coolname: Storm Shadow Dain. He has a certificate to prove it.
  • Berserk Button:
    • Storm does not like the idea of people asking for subscriptions or likes in their videos.
    • Requests to adventure a game/series are mainly ignored.
    • Advertisement:
    • Precision games, owing to a bad experience with Blast Corps.
  • Call-Back: A well known quip in his adventures is referencing his quotes from previous adventures, no matter how irrelevant it is to the game he's adventuring.
  • Catchphrase:
    • After ranting about difficulty: "And this creates frustration levels only previously found in [insert game here]".
    • "All sliders to the right!". After renouncing his interest in character customization since playing Oblivion, all character customization is done all sliders to the right. Also applies when the game asks him to set brightness.
      • All sliders to the right didn't work out for him in the Saints Row: The Third adventure. So he made his character on Jimmy from MSI. Yet he somehow ended up with Tommy Wiseau.
    • Advertisement:
    • "And if you disagree, you can blame it on this guy." Usually showing the credits to a game, specifically on a person named or similarly named to Rey Gutierrez
  • Complacent Gaming Syndrome: Invoked. Storm tends to put all sliders to the right in character creation screens, and he only plays as Link on all Super Smash Bros. games.
  • Every Episode Ending: Starting from Bioshock, every adventure ends on a quote detailing his opinion on a game.
  • Fun with Acronyms:
    • GISHAOTYA, "Games I Should Have Adventured On Two Years Ago".
    • Also GISHAOTYAIIWAWROGFTNR, "Games I Should Have Adventured On TEN Years Ago If I Wasn't Already Writing Reviews On Game FAQS That Nobody Read".
  • Happily Married: With Sarah since the adventure with Halo: Reach and Call of Duty: Black Ops, she also appears in his videos.
  • Kill It with Fire: During his Wii U response video, when Activision came up, well...cue Ominous Latin Chanting. And fire.
  • Important Haircut: Bulletstorm, it's a very disturbing game...
  • Loophole Abuse: Future Storm's Adventure with Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 starts off with Future Storm trying to invoke it after Storm previously said he was never playing Call of Duty again (Future Storm didn't say it, it was in regards to past wars, not modern ones, Storm being a liar...), turns out he didn't need to.
  • My Future Self and Me: Storm and Future Storm
  • New Powers as the Plot Demands: Played for Laughs, according to Storm, Future Storm can apparently grow a beard in five seconds.
  • Nostalgia Filter: Discussed and Defied with the Perfect Dark Adventure, claiming that the idea of old video games being better than newer ones is untrue and comes from gamers being older and more critical.
  • "Not Making This Up" Disclaimer: His reason on how he got a Sega Genesis? His neighbor sold Storm the console for ten dollars because he was on debt on Girl Scout Cookies.
  • Off the Rails: Happens more often than you think, it's why their called Adventures.
  • Other Me Annoys Me: The dynamic between Storm and Future Storm.
  • Overly Long Gag: The Doom Adventure, which initially looked to cover the newest Doom at the time turns out to eventually be an Adventure of all of the original Doom's many console ports.
  • Perverse Sexual Lust: From the beginning with Princess Peach.
  • Rage Quit: To the point where he broke a Wii Remote in half to his knee and later throwing an Xbox 360 controller to the edge of his TV, malfunctioning it in the process.
  • Rule of Fun: Storm is a firm believer of this trope. His Kameo: Elements of Power adventure is half of him talking about how all a game really needs to be at the end of the day, is fun.
  • Rule of Funny: According to "Storm's Adventures with Fans", he put eight copies of Super Smash Brothers Brawl on his shelf for this very reason.
  • Running Gag: Standalone adventures have their own running gag. These are persistent:
    • One of his electronics malfunctioning in his adventures, although it's uncommon.
    • Naming somebody as characters from Metal Gear.
    • Emphasizing words by flashing each word on the screen.
    • Any game that has customization features, Storm will just ignore and put all the options sliders to the right.
  • Sarcasm Mode: His adventuring style.
  • Signature Scene: Storm breaking his Wii Remote with his knee.
  • Something Completely Different: ''Cooking with Future Storm'' and Live Boredom.
  • Story Arc: About Future Storm going back in time to give Storm two games that where very cheap in Future Storm's time... and living with him until the Halo: Reach and Call of Duty: Black Ops adventure where Future Storm goes to the past again to torture his past self for a second time.
  • Take That, Audience!: Storm's Adventure with Fans was about him answering repeatedly asked comments in an annoyed manner. He also takes jabs at certain viewers for telling him about certain quirks.
  • Third-Person Person: Storm's video descriptions are written in third-person to invoke professionalism being written by someone better than him.
  • Token Non-Human: Brenda, a sweeping broom.
  • Updated Re-release:
    • His inFAMOUS adventure, which fixes the phrase "did I loose any friends" to "did I lose any friends", something his viewers have been pestering him for a few years.
    • Super Mario Galaxy, after completing the game and found out that he has to play it over with Luigi, Storm decides to redo his adventure again by replacing Mario with Luigi.
