Might Dark Souls be the new Endurance Run? Mr. Rorie dropped hints on BtsD. I think this game would be great because the community could either help him or fuck him over!

I wouldn't be surprised if now they would never do one of that game because this thread was made. WAY TO GO PAL!

It wouldn't be a normal week for Giant Bomb if we didn't get at least one of these Endurance Run threads.

@MooseyMcMan So I control GB now?! Hooray!

Vinny might do it, but no one else in the staff would be willing to sit in with him. Maybe Patrick, he hasn't been here long enough for me to get a read on how fast he gives up when a game is too difficult.

What part of the Screened podcast made you think Endurance Run? From the sound of it, Rorie is probably going to reviewing Dark Souls. That's it.

#11 Posted by FengShuiGod (1486 posts) -

Everyone, just back away. Nothing to see here. I didn't see the words Endura-well, you know. Let's move on folks.

#12 Posted by Pink_o_mat (203 posts) -
@Milkman Maybe it's just wishful thinking. I think you're right.

If he's just reviewing why did he have to be so vague? Couldn't he just say he was reviewing it?

Every time someone makes an Endurance Run thread, the GB Crew looks at it and goes 'nah'.

Embargoes.

Idk, watching 2 people die 24x in a row before they can pass a gameplay segment that takes barely 6 minutes at regular tempo does not seem particularly fun when youre not in control

#17 Posted by RE_Player1 (7560 posts) -

If I see another endurance run thread I'm going too... Actually I can't do shit. Still these threads are becoming quite annoying.

#18 Posted by SethPhotopoulos (5263 posts) -

Vinny would probably the only one who would do it.

This is the Groundhog Day of Giant Bomb threads.

How could they possibly do an Endurance Run without party chat?!

#21 Posted by onarum (2089 posts) -

The problem with this idea is that if Dark Souls is anything like Demons Souls (which it seems it's pretty much the same thing) it's kinda grindy, in which you sometimes just have to stay slaying the same monsters again and again to get some levels in order to defeat a boss or something, I myself had no problems with this in Demons Souls, I love that game, but not only it doesn't make for very compelling videos but also pretty much all of the GB guys dislike this type of thing so...

#22 Posted by RockinKemosabe (619 posts) -

If they did an endurance run of Dark Souls think about how maddening it'll be. I think they need to choose a title that has more consistent progress built into the structure of the game than watching somebody die over and over and over again.

Well played, Sir. Well played.

"You know what, I don't think I've ever seen one of these threads before. Why don't we have have an endurance run suggestion thread?"-Swoxx.....Seconded, only I want it to just appeal to me and my sub group at GB, so maybe something that has a party of a man, a wizard, and an elf. Dwarves and theives optional, but must have dragons and magik...and robots.

It's probably a review, but who would care about a review? I don't get why they don't do a special live stream instead.

That's what I'm thinking, too. Not that I wouldn't want them to review it, but the notion that they'll do one of those live 1 hour+ quick-looks for it sounds likely.

I certainly hope it won't be an endurance run, since the best part about the P4 ER was the fact that it was a game I'll most likely never play. It's why I skipped over the DP ER entirely, and if it does turn out to be Dark Souls, I'll be avoiding this one, too. Sure, Dark Souls isn't exactly brimming with plot, but the dungeons and enemy bosses I want to witness for myself; it's why I've also been turning a blind-eye to the flurry of streams they've been doing for Dark Souls.

We need more of these threads.

#30 Posted by Make_Me_Mad (3091 posts) -

Next Endurance Run should just be some goddamn pen and paper RPG goodness. Norman Chan DM'ing for maximum sadism.

#31 Posted by SlasherMan (1725 posts) -

No.

The best fits for ERs are games that are obscure enough to have not been played or even heard of by many. Quirkiness is always a plus.

Not once did I have to do that in Demon's Souls.

The thing is, will watching Vinny screw up over and over again be funny? Or will they skip over thiose parts if things get out of hand and just get straight to when you collect your soul.

@Grissefar: They could do a live QL, I hope they will at least make a QL and no excuse about how too many games are coming out, either suck it up and do the work or stop bitching.

Deal with it and stop with your whining.

You know they don't have to cover this game because they don't feel like it needs covering. That's a reason they didn't cover Blaz Blue 2 even though people were in love with that. They aren't being lazy there's just no point. There might be a quick look and there might not.

Come on, you know Vinny's going to want to do something, after his long journey to beat Demon's Souls. Unless he was traumatized or something. But it won't be more than a (not-so) Quick Look. The difference is that they all hate Blaz Blue.

Rorie is terrible at keeping a secret. Yeah, it has to be an endurance run.

True I just didn't like the tone this brat was using.

That's fine. Carry on then.

Because it is. Love Vinny but the ER has gotta be a team effort.

Yeah I guess. Though I'd be perfectly happy with just Vinny and Jeff, and no other team.
#43 Posted by SirPsychoSexy (1329 posts) -

This would be an amazing endurance run, and if it were members only, it would probably push me over the edge

#44 Posted by kingzetta (4307 posts) -
@benpicko: well it would be vinny and rorie 
Jeff would happily kill himself to get out doing that.

You are asking for a lot here. Plus watching people constantly die gets old fast.

Is that what Dark Souls really is? I always figured it was a niche game.

#49 Posted by Duckchow (47 posts) -
#50 Posted by Rhaknar (5939 posts) -

well, NOW it is, the "first" one sold over 1million on just 1 system. The new one is getting a lot more hype, is on both systems, and its still a niche game, but now its niche in the same way Skyrim is niche
