PeanutButterGamer mainly does video game reviews and Top 10s on his channel. He plays a variety of games and is rarely serious when criticizing the games he reviews. His Top 10s mostly consist of comedic montages filled with very random text and effects. His second channel, PBGGameplay, is dedicated to minecraft hardcores, Zelda collection series, Mario Let's Plays and smaller incomplete playthroughs with his friend, Jeff. PBG is known for his good quality editing and random humor.
PBG has an ongoing series of "Hardcore" adventures, where he teams up with 7 close YouTubers and friends to try to beat the game without dying once. So far, they have only succeded three times, JonTron and Barry defeating the enderdragon in Minecraft, Paul and The Completionist killing Diablo in Diablo II, and PBG, Space Hamster, McJones, and Dean killing the Elder Guardians in Minecraft Hardcore #4
- Defeat the enderdragon on Hardcore mode with having as little people possible die
The first Hardcore series was Minecraft with his friend YouTubers JonTron, The Completionist, and Soah186, along with his other friends Dean, Barry, and his brother McJones. They start off with a disadvantage, with The Completionist and Dean having no idea how to play the game. Dean and The Completionist decide to go mining to learn the mechanics of the game.
Shortly The Completionist dies from "AFK", because the first episode was filmed on his birthday, and he had to leave.
Soah died with an unexplained reason, because he was down in the mineshaft alone and only PBG and McJones were recording at the time. Soah later explained that he dug into lava and was not able to escape in time.
Nobody died for a long time afterwards, and that gave them plenty of time to introduce the "Who Needs A Map" joke, which is used whenever somebody says something about a map. They later moved from the forest to the hills, then into a tundra biome. They built a new home in the tundra biome and trekked back to their old house, where they took all of the valuable stuff and abandoned it.
PBG constantly got lost in the tundra afterwards, and when he was alone and lost, he died to an enderman's wrath. Footage shows that he accidentally switched from his sword to his bow in the midst of the chaos, and if he kept his hotbar on the sword, he could have survived. McJones and Dean later find an underwater stronghold, and when they meet up with JonTron and Barry, they open the portal and almost immediately, the enderdragon knocks McJones off of the world, and he dies. After a bitter fight against the enderdragon, JonTron and Barry win, but Dean has his life taken in the midst. As a little celebration, JonTron and Barry have a PVP match afterwards, where Barry strikes down JonTron.
After Soah's death, they began to build graves for the fallen players.
- Escape Chenarus using a helicopter with having as little people as possible die
With everyone quickly failing, this was the shortest season ever, with only three episodes. YouTubers PBG, JonTron, Rubberross, and ProJared along with Dean, McJones, and Barry are in this season. They at first thought it'd be a cool idea if five people spawned at one side of the map, and two others spawned at the other. PBG and Barry had to spawn in Balota, while the others spawned in another location. It took 45 minutes to set up, but once they did, most of the five people were immediately killed by bandits. Everyone decided it was unfair and restarted their recording devices.
Dean came close to PBG and Barry, and they went into a control tower, climbing on to the roof, and escape down a ladder to try and lose the zombies chasing them. In the midst of the screaming that aroused, McJones was shot and killed, but because of the chaos happening, nobody seemed to pay much attention to it, until later JonTron asked "So is Stewart (McJones's first name?) just dead?" PBG and Dean escape, but Barry was attacked by a zombie. He survived, but he lost a lot of blood. However, he patched it up when he got far enough.
JonTron came into Balota at the same time, and met up with PBG and Dean. Barry stayed behind, however. They decided to try and lose zombies chasing them by going into the control tower again. But this time, before they could climb down the ladder, a zombie climbed up the ladder, and PBG, JonTron, and Dean retreated to the other side of the control tower. Dean said that the best way to escape was whichever way the zombie goes, they head the other direction. Ironically, at that moment, another zombie climbed up the ladder and the three were cornered. PBG freaked out and accidentally jumped off the building, broke his legs, and died. Dean escaped, but shortly, JonTron did the same thing as PBG.
Dean ran back to the main road, and saw Barry hiding. They ran toward Chernogorsk, while Rubberross, who was just running around on the coast, and ProJared, who was looting Elektrozavodsk, decided to try to meet up together. Dean and Barry arrived at Chernogorsk, but died shortly to bandits. Rubberross and ProJared found each other on the coast, and ran towards Elektrozavodsk. Rubberross died while looting the city, but ProJared stayed alive until he was murdered.
- Defeat the normal mode with having as little people as possible die
Everyone stayed alive much longer than DayZ, but this was still a relatively short series. PBG played along with JonTron, Paul from the YouTube show "Continue?", SpaceHamster, Dean, McJones, and Barry. Barry died from a monster attack, and Paul died shorly afterwards, although he was alone and nobody really knows what happened.
After heading back to base. They continue to go mining for items, and while Dean and McJones mine in one shaft some ways away from the house, PBG, JonTron, and SpaceHamster mine under the house, coincidentally in the shape of an SMG. Realizing McJones and Dean are nearby, they dig towards them, but as soon as they are withing sight, McJones steps on a pressure plate, and the two of them get crushed under a boulder trap.
JonTron is the next to die, ironically, because he was the most careless, constantly jumping off builidngs for fun, running around wildlife and killing monsters for fun, even throwing bombs and grenades inside the house. He died carelessly to a demon eye. (and there was much rejoicing)
After JonTron's death, PBG and SpaceHamster realize that they're the only ones left and they haven't even challenged the first boss, the Eye of Cthulhu. They stride to make it there, and do. They do a good job with its first form, firing flaming arrows and using ironskin potions on themselves, but they couldn't survive the lunges of the second form. SpaceHamster evades death by warping back to the house, but do to his limited manuverability inside, the eyeball kills him. PBG is left alone and low on health, and dies screaming "I HAVE ONE HEART!! I HAVE ONE HEART!! IT'S AN EYEBALL!! IT'S AN EYEBALL!! AARRRRGGGH!"
Minecraft HC #2
- Defeat the Wither with having as little people as possible die
PBG decides to go back to Minecraft because Mojang added a new boss, called the Wither. He arrives at the scene with NintendoCapriSun (NCS), ProJared, Kyrak the Poet, Dean, McJones, and Barry. Unfortunately, Kyrak's internet connection was unstable, and a lot of the time he wasn't even playing the game, but just trying to rejoin the server and get his internet connection back. McJones tells everyone to move to the desert nearby and build a house there. Everyone but Barry leaves their spawn, a forest. Barry stays because he is mining some stone and coal in a ravine nearby, but then gets lagged out and has single-digit frames.
At night, a skeleton fires at him, and Barry is still unable to move. ProJared tries to save him, but quickly runs back after being reduced to low health. Barry is able to get a barricade going until his game crashes. At daylight, Barry's game returns to normal, and some of the members head to the ravine to rescue him.
Dean and PBG later discover a jungle temple, but they decide not to go in just yet when McJones shouts "There's bombs in there!" They decide to come back later. However, Dean doesn't get to return, because he later dies to a skeleton, trying to defend the house. But that didn't stop him from almost saying the first "Who Needs A Map?" joke of the season (NCS beat him to it, however). McJones and a few others head to the temple, and they find some enchanting books and redstone.
Kyrak still had lag issues, and eventually, it became so horrible that he texted PBG that he just couldn't make it back on. PBG texted back, "Try to relog, we want to sacrifice you." After some time, Kyrak did make it back on, and then because he was too laggy to do anything, PBG hosted a "Kyrak sacrifice" and "accidentally" murdered him. At this point they decide to make a graveyard, and they think it'd be cool if they wrote some poetry on Kyrak's tombstone. PBG and ProJared try to get a haiku going, but PBG just leaves his tombstone marked:
Kyrak the Poet
He died because
And on the back he inscribed:
It definitely wasn't PBG
They all mine diamonds and eventually they find an obsidian-filled ravine. They mine in there, and Barry had a close call when he ran around trying to kill a bat but accidentally stared at an enderman while doing so. ProJared also had a close call when greed overtook him and he fought creepers and skeletons to the point where he was at 1 1/2 hearts while trying to obtain iron. They all made it to the nether and they almost died when they spawned on a small platform and had to build a bridge while a ghast was attacking. However, they are unable to find the wither skulls needed for the Wither construction, and decide to come back later.
Later, in the overworld, PBG's game freezes, and a creeper comes behind him. ProJared tries to warn him, but PBG can't move and also thinks he's joking. ProJared runs to try and strike down the creeper, but it explodes, PBG's game crashes, and ProJared dies.
NCS goes exploring, but runs off the map McJones gave him. PBG claims they spent a few hours just looking for NCS, but they cut off the gameplay so people weren't bored to death. After a good amount of time, McJones finds NCS and attempts to bring him home, but just before he gets there, he falls into a pond in the forest along with a spider. He gets cornered and dies due to his lack of experience in survival mode. Everyone groaned at the fact that he was just a hundred blocks from the house but didn't make it, along with corny "sad" music from Super Mario RPG.
Eventually, PBG, McJones, and Barry stock up on food, enchant their gear, and make new weapons so they can try and kill more wither skeletons to kill so they can get wither skulls. After hours of gameplay, they kill numerous skeletons, but only find one skull. It gets chaotic when pigmen are provoked. PBG couldn't take it, and died, when he got cornered into a wall McJones built to block the mobs off. McJones died shortly afterwards. Barry becomes lonely and talks to the sword Dean wielded when he died. He got bored with talking to Dean, so he took the nether skull and named it Jeffrey. He talked to it for a while until he was attacked and killed, thus ending the series.
Diablo 2 Hardcore
- Defeat Diablo with having as little people as possible die
In the Diablo 2 Hardcore, PBG played alongside Rubberross, Paul from the YouTube show "Continue?", The Completionist, Dean, McJones, and Barry. In the first act, Rubberross had many close calls, and eventually his life was claimed before he even made it to Act II. After that episode, for some unknown reason, the show was postponed for about a month, but it came back. In episode 5, PBG sang a song that talked about two things: Him missing Rubberross, and Apologizing to his fans for the lack of Hardcore episodes.
All the rest of the cast made it to Act II, but Barry died almost immediately to a large group of monsters in the Lut Gholein sewers The rest of Act II continued mostly uneventfully, and the remaining 5 made it to Act III.
Act III went fine at first, with the group running around the jungle killing things, and going to the arachnid lair instead of the spider cavern. PBG almost died, apparently even dying on Jirard's screen. They took the Spider Cavern with little trouble, but shortly afterwards, Dean perished to a fire breathing Flayer Shaman, taking his "Skellybros" with him. The rest survived right up to the end of Act III, when PBG died in the Durance of Hate. The three survivors killed Mephisto and headed to Act IV.
In Act IV, they all survived right up until the final challenge before Diablo, when they got completely overwhelmed by enemies. Jirard used a Scroll of Town Portal and him and Paul rushed inside. McJones however did not and perished. The two survivors eventually made it back and killed all the enemies, then killed Diablo himself, simply by running away through a town portal whenever they got close to death.
Minecraft HC #3
- Defeat the Wither with having as little people as possible die
PBG and his friends decided to redo the Minecraft hardcore because last time they were unsuccessful at killing the Wither. This time PBG was with JonTron, Shane from DidYouKnowGaming?, Smooth McGroove, ProJared, McJones, and Dean. This was the first official hardcore series that did not have Barry.
PBG and the others set up a house in no time, and in a few hours, JonTron had made a lavafall in it for decoration. Everyone but JonTron and PBG pretty much resented it, but PBG proclaimed "I am declaring myself the captain, and I say this is okay!" Pretty soon, though, the house caught on fire and they had to get rid of the lavafall.
Slowly, everyone started to die out. Dean died from a creeper explosion right after he asked for people to protect him. JonTron went exploring with some other people, and he was hit with poison by a witch. He ran away with only one heart, but a skeleton came out of nowhere and from instinct, he hit it. And it shot his face. ProJared was hit with a creeper explosion in the night as well.
Soon, only PBG, Shane, Smooth McGroove, and McJones were left. They were the only four to go into the nether. While exploring, PBG and McJones decided to set up a little base by digging into netherrack. While digging out a cave, McJones hit lava, and they panicked, attempting to bail from their small base, which unfortunately had a narrow enterance. They both caught on fire, and McJones got trapped in and died. Shortly after, PBG died from his burn damage.
Shane and SmoothMcGroove were left. They started hunting for skeletons but when zombie pigmen started to infest the fortress, it became clear that they had to clear the area for skeletons to spawn. It was a big mistake. The pigmen went beserk and eventually took down Shane and Smooth McGoove.
- Get Team 1 and Team B/2 together with having as little people as possible die
- Defeat a giant with having as little people as possible die.
Note: There was an error with the team names because they did not go over names the day they started the hardcore series, so some people were referring the teams as "Team 1 and Team 2", while others said "Team A and Team B". Most people say "Team 1" after McJones' famous quote "Team 1 likes touching themselves," while some people say "Team 2" or "Team B" as a joke.
MineZ is a Minecraft-server-based game based off of DayZ. The one that PBG used was the one on shotbow.net, and its official interactive map and wiki can be found at minezmap.com. The wiki itself is at http://minezwiki.net/wiki/Home:Main_Page. Based on the incredible amount of skill and luck needed, and the fact that it is an awesome server that he loves, PBG decided to base MineZ hardcore off of here.
Nobody except PBG (gold rank) and McJones (silver rank) is a donator, so everyone technically spawns in 41 different spawn places. Thankfully, they manage to round up the players towards 2 different spawn areas, with team 1 consisting of PBG, SpaceHamster, Brutalmoose, and Barry spawning in the desert (near spawn 12/13?) and team B/2 consisting of McJones, Dean, and ProJared spawning in the forest (most likely spawned in 25, 26 or 27).
Team 1's goal was to get out of the desert while raiding the ruins in the area, head to Portsmouth for a quick pit stop, and then head into the snow via Ridgevale and meet up with Team 2 there. Team 2, however, would stop at Huntsgrove for gear and then take the trek to Ridgevale.
The season began with Team 1 in the desert near the shorline. PBG, Brutalmoose, Barry and Jeff(SpaceHamster) show off their skins in a brief introduction and refill their water bottles before heading East to Portsmouth. On the way, the Team makes a quick detour into a desert castle, which PBG assures no zombies are in. As PBG climbs up to the second floor for supplies, two zombies rush down swiftly from the stairs and attack PBG. The zombies, being much faster and stronger than regular Minecraft zombies, quickly injure PBG and cause him to bleed, but the team rushes up and defeats the zombies quickly.
PBG patches himself up and the team collects the little loot left in the fortification, then leave. They decide to stay off the main path and climb a sand dune to reach the Bazaar, where they manage to get some food and drink from a pool of fresh water. The team gets ready to head off again.
Meanwhile, McJones, Dean and Jared meet up outside the city of Romero and begin heading West. They turn North and trek a pretty long distance, stopping at a farmhouse for scavenging and water. Thy have their first encounters with the Infected, meeting two outside the farmhouse. They sneak towards the zombies, but Dean gets to close and is attacked. The others spring to action and try to save Dean, McJones managing to take one down. The second one repeatedly dodges their swings with its speed until it runs into a tree and is slain by McJones. They move to Huntsgrove and manage to pick up a ton of supplies, including a ridiculous amounts of medical ointment. Soon, the team is fully equipped with healing equipment.
McJones decides against staying too long in Huntsgrove but when they find a hoe, McJones decides to return to the farmhouse to harvest the crops. While the move out, a humongous group of Infected ambushes them, and the three are briefly overwhelmed, but McJones and Jared quickly fight off the zombies. However, Dean is bitten in the chaos and becomes infected, slowly dieing. They run into a player at the farmhouse., who's white leather armour briefly confuses Jared and Dean into thinking that it's iron, and stay a distance away, but McJones realises the truth and they chase him away. Gathering what they can, McJones quickly leaves for Ridgevale, as they try to keep Dean alive with healing since they lacked antibiotics or antidote.
Shortly afterwards, Team 1 arrived in Ridgevale, prompting initial panic from Team 2/B as all they saw was four players heading towards them. PBG revealed he had an antidote, and there was a small riot as everyone tried working out who had the antidote, all while Dean sat there with half a heart. And the Antidote. After that fuss, the now-united group headed in the direction McJones thought Paluster was in, but after they ended up at a castle, he realized his mistake. Not much of significance occurred in the series until the group reached Sirius.
In Sirius things started alright, the group finding some good weapon and some iron amour. However, things took a turn for the worst when Dean got infected again. The group split up to try and find antidote or antibiotics, but during the search, PBG and McJones got infected as well. PBG and Dean met up in a house for the infected while McJones tried to find his way to them. Then the server rebooted. During this, for whatever reason, Dean's character got reset, so they let him run back to them while the four remaining healthy players continued the search. Eventually, after ProJared started bleeding about 5 times in the space of a few minutes, the team realized they were going to die there, so they made a decision. PBG and McJones decided to stay behind, after some weird suggestions about PBG and McJones' "children" after PBG declared "We will tell our children the story". The team left after waiting for Dean to get there, and proceeded to the Pirate Ship McJones mentioned shortly before they split up. On the way, they stopped a Knoxmoor Inn, where Dean got infected for the third time in a single playthrough. They made it to the Pirate Ship, where they decided to leave Dean behind. Dean later dies in the pirate ship, with a recording letting the audience know that he had apparantly tried to climb the ship's mast when a zombie fell on him. The rest of the group proceeded across a bridge to a gravel land the group decided was the Moon. And the Moon in the sky became Moon B. They found Camp Kharj, where Jared met his end in the form of a Zombie Pigman, which explode in MineZ when you hit them (meaning he died from an explosion again).
The next few episodes were dedicated to the adventures of PBG and McJones as they escaped Sirius and made it to Bazel, which they mistook as the safer Oasis and where McJones met his end. PBG then voyaged, eventually reaching Grayvale, where he eventually killed himself jumping off a ledge while running from a zombie. The last part of the final episode was Brutalmoose, SpaceHamster and Barry fighting the Giant. SpaceHamster fell first, and Brutalmoose and Barry met up for a last supper. They charged the giant, Brutalmoose died, and Barry was left infected, bleeding, and with half a heart. Then the Giant stomp attacked him.
Note: The title for the last episode of MineZ Hardcore "The Last Supper" may be a reference to back when NormalBoots ended and if you went to the website back then it would show a picture of the famous piece of art the last supper where the faces of all the people in the portrait were replaced by all the NormalBoots members.
The deaths have been confirmed to be out of order in this. The correct order with who dies first is: McJones, Dean, Jared, SpaceHamster, Brutalmoose, Barry and the final survivor being PBG.
This season has been well-praised by fans as being the most nerve-wrecking season of hardcore yet.
Minecraft HC 4 and Terraria HC 2 are both out, with MineZ 2 confirmed.
Minecraft HC #4
- Defeat the 3 Elder Guardians with having as little people as possible die
Because PBG and his friends lost to the Wither twice, they decided to scrap that idea for now, instead focussing on the most recent boss: The Elder Guardian(s). Unusually, there were only six people instead of seven participating, who were PBG, SpaceHamster, Caddicarus, Dean, McJones and Barry (Yungtown would have been the 7th person). They spawned on an island, surrounded by several others. Instead of building a normal house, Dean decided on a cave house as it “builds itself”. They mined out a tiny cave and set up base. Just as they got there, it became night-time.
A little later after that, Dean had a close call with a creeper but had only just survived after fighting it off. Later, everyone except from PBG also almost died when SpaceHamster was building stairs, when they encountered a creeper. SpaceHamster placed down a stair in front of everyone and tried to escape, leaving everyone else trapped down there. When everyone started to panic, SpaceHamster jumped down and killed it before it exploded. The crew also got some endorsements from Caddy (his skin being “The Burger King Guy”)
While PBG, Dean and Caddy went cave-diving, SpaceHamster and Barry built a farm on a separate island, with a bridge connecting the two. McJones also built a chair for him to use while fishing. When everyone gathered on the farm later (at night) to plant carrot seeds, they got overwhelmed by monsters there including 3 endermen and a witch. After an epic battle to protect the farm, they managed to fend off the monsters and get back to their home.
A little while later when everyone was mining, SpaceHamster decided to build a ladder to connect a platform to the ground as he was climbing down it, but discovered he couldn't build it over coal, which left him stuck there. After Caddy attempted to climb up the waterfall to save him (he was dissuaded by PBG), Dean built up a cobble platform for him, but as SpaceHamster dropped onto it, it got mined from underneath him and he fell. Luckily, there was a small ledge below that which he landed on, dealing him only 1 and a half hearts of damage.
Soon, McJones finally gathered enough obsidian and built a Nether Portal. They ventured out and found a Nether Fortress, in which they’d find netherwart and blaze rods. While there, they accidently angered some Zombie Pigmen, leading to a whole horde of them chasing the crew, but they managed to survive and leave the Nether, thinking that they’d got everything. However, when they returned, McJones realised they’d forgotten soul sand for growing the netherwart, so they returned. While in the Nether Fortress, Barry recieved the Wither effect from some Wither Skeletons, which ate up his hearts, and then got attacked by a “Wiggly Squiggly”, one-shotting him and marking the first death of the season. The aggro-ed pigmen then proceeded to attack Caddy and Dean. They escaped AGAIN, and went back AGAIN, only for Caddy to be killed by the pigmen after panicking and hitting one of them. They then went for the others, who narrowly escaped and avoided death, this time with soul sand. When they were back, they built two monuments on “Creeper Island” (named by Caddy, as there was always one lonely creeper on it) for Barry and Caddy, with soul sand placed underneath them, since they died for it.
Later, they sailed off for another land, taking their stuff with them, but had to build a new home because they got lost and couldn’t find their way back. There, they collected more diamonds and made an enchanting table. Dean adopted a horse, who he named Montague, which turned out to be evil when he almost suffocated in a wall trying to get into the house on his horse. While talking about old references, PBG coins the first "Who needs a map?" joke of the season, much to the annoyance of everyone (especially Dean). They gathered up their potions, enchanted armour and weapons, including Caddy the sword, and set out on their boats to find an Ocean Monument. After some searching, PBG eventually found one, much to everyone’s excitement.
The very next episode, they set off with water-breathing potions and night vision potions to fight. They battled hard, but after several near-deaths, they realised they didn’t have enough potions for them to last. They sailed back in disappointment. They later set out AGAIN, with more potions and even though they almost died several times they managed to defeat all 3 guardians. They collected the treasure of the Monument (gold blocks) and sailed back home in triumph. After building two more memorials for their fallen allies, they faced off each other in a PvP battle, with Dean being the victor, SpaceHamster, McJones and PBG killed off (in that order). To end it off, Dean fittingly drowned himself in the sea.
This hardcore has the best ever record of all other series, with 4 survivors, as well as tallying their number of wins up to 3.
PBG has a "Collection Series" in his channel PBG Gameplay, in which he tries to collect all of a specific item or other collectible in a certain game. He finished 3 of these, and one is currently running- the first one, the "Majora's Mask: Mask Collection", in which PBG collected all the Masks in The Legend of Zelda: Majora's Mask", eventually beating the game in order to get the final mask; the second, the "The Elder Scrolls Oblivion - Daedric Collection", in which PBG collected all of the Daedric Artifacts; the third, the "Wind Waker HD Collection Series", in which PBG marked all possible islands in the game on the Map Chart while also reviewing each island and showing everything there is to it; and the one currently running- the "The Elder Scrolls Skyrim - Daedric Collection", a sort of sequel to his first Collection Series, in which PBG tries once again to collect all Daedric Artifacts but this time in the sequel to Oblivion, Skyrim. He also has a collection series of the vault-tec bobbleheads, in Fallout 3.
PBG makes "reviews" of video games, but he doesn't really like the word "review" because it's more of a funny, highly-edited short video of gameplay to him and he just uses the term for lack of a better word. This is clearly the most vital part of his channel and also most of the channel anyways.
The G-Files series talks about weird video games/weird things found in video games/mysteries in video games. It doesn't seem to be currently running anymore, but it has proved to be a dominant PBG series.
To Kill An Avatar
This is an old series during the start of PBG. In this series, he takes a few video games and talks about how it relates to killing innocent people/creatures/things. Some games used include Pokémon, Legend of Zelda (during his Zelda Month), and Mario Party.
PBG loves Zelda and is probably his favorite video game series. In 2011, he introduced Zelda Month during the month the new Zelda game "Skyward Sword" was planned for release (November). During this month, he adds gameplay, reviews, and "Top 10's" to his channel that all relate to Zelda.
In 2012, he decided to have another Zelda Month in November, although the month would not relate to any current plans for the Legend of Zelda game series. Since then, he has continued to upload Zelda videos. In fact, his 2013 Zelda Month ironically lasted over a month because he had so much content he wanted to upload.
On January 25, 2014, www.normalboots.com re-opened consisting of two new members: ProJared and Satchbags Goods.
