DVD Bonus Features[]

The DVD contained several other videos not seen on the site.

Behind MGB[]

Ben discusses the behind the scenes of Metal Gear Ben. This was the first time that Ben has made an episonic series. It took from April 2009 and ended in May 2010 to finish it, and it took so long because Metal Gear Ben had to be made alongside regular ScrewAttack work. Ben discusses that the original script was much more dark, and featured three Corey's. The villains were dark and serious in the original script. The only character who maintained the "accidental badass" traits was Ben's character. Almost the entire first draft was thrown out except for the first episode.

Ben discusses James' role as Mega Mantis. Ben really wanted James in the series, but since James lives so far away, the original scripts didn't have James in them. Ben compliments James on his wonderful performance considering he did the entire thing on his own.

Episode 0 was Angels idea. His name was Granite, and he is called this, as everyone used to compare him to The Rock. The episode was never finished. When Nathan came down, Ben decided to allow Nathan to fill the role instead and made it up as they went along. It is one of Ben's favorite episodes.

Jake, Ben's brother made the special effects such as the apple that hit Ben, Destin's gun twirling, the LOLaser, and the ROFLcopter. Ben discusses the three g1's who made the music for the series, and the artwork for the opening. The music and art needed to be similar to the Metal Gear series, but also gaming in general. Ben received around 400 submissions for the musical pieces. He tried to use as many as possible. A lot of actors, and several major characters were all g1s.

There was no black tape either. Chad improvises using some tape and a sharpie. To make sure the sharpie ink dries, Chad gets a dryer to dry the sword.

Step 2: Sharpie this bitch.

Step 3: Dry this bitch.
