Vinny, never stop caring!!! Keep the Endurance Run alive!

If we all close our eyes real tight and make a wish, magic will happen and ep 50 will work and the ER will continue!

Posted by Suicrat

Why do people keep posting stuff about save slots? The VIDEO got corrupted, not the save file!


Also, for hell's sakes, it's time to buy GB teeshirts, people! If Vinny's putting in to get this episode online, the fans ought to as well!

He said "a little dicey", meaning risky.

Vinny! We Believe in you!

The Endurance Run was a fantastic unique idea from GB, hopefully after 10 weeks you decide to continue on. Thanks to all involved anyway!

Posted by Aion

If threy had used more than one save slot, they could've replayed the 45 minutes or so they put into episode 50. Because they saved over the file they loaded, they can't do that now. That's why people have said they should've used multiple save slots.

Because they could have just refilmed for the 2 hours instead of spending 12 trying to recover the corrupted file

Man, one of the most entertaining parts of my day is this ER. Please don't tell me it ends here.

Posted by Sarumarine

Well, if that's how it goes... congrats for outliving the endurance run. You beat it! In more ways than one! Heh.

Anyways, whatever happens, it was a good show and always entertaining. Funky Student and Fox know what's up. If we get to see more of it, that's cool too.

The guy screaming was a warning to you guys that something bad was going to happen in the not too distant future. You should have took heed of his warning.

In all seriousness though, don't fret over this too much. Your users have got your back.

Posted by JJOR64

Awesome video but, I hope you guys will make it to the end of the game.

" Because they could have just refilmed for the 2 hours instead of spending 12 trying to recover the corrupted file"

They would have saved as they finished meaning they saved over the whole ep50 parts.

Posted by Nasar7

Is it just me or is Drew always wearing the same shirt? Not trying to call you out man, just saying... Also, we appreciate all the hard work that goes into these runs and hope you are able to recover the file.

Good God I hope it gets fixed.

""Long videos...a little pricey".  Do they need to pay to play this and video it?"
The longer the video file is, the higher the chance of it being corrupted / broken / things going wrong. So the price is high as for a longer Endurance Run episode you also increase the chance of losing the file.

You guys are awesome and you cant stop the endurance run....I really want to know who the culprit is and weirdly enough I have  grown fond of  these characters and it would be sad not to see if Funky has another riddle or if Charlie gets it on with Chie eventually...you could just record the camping trip without commentary if you dont want to go through that again or just go on with episode 51. But one thing is clear, the madness of Persona 4 cant end!!!

But that's not how this shit works. You can't have them just play the same thing over again. What are they going to do, try and hit the same jokes as they already did a second time?

Right, which is why people are calling for multiple save files so they could reload the one before the filmming
Posted by Thievius

I think they're messing with us again.  Like they did when they were about to air the Yukiko boss fight and alluded to it being "all over" in their podcast.

But if they aren't, and they really can't get the video fixed, and it's all over, it was a good run.

Posted by SpunkyHePanda

Even if they had multiple save slots and went back to record it again, all of the spontaneity would be lost. They would already know what's going to happen because they just saw it.

Posted by Dolphin_Butter

Kind of odd to see people with very low post counts in this thread. I suppose these videos reach a wider audience than I thought!

Posted by viklanderviking

Im so bummed about this...

Posted by Suicrat

You can't just re-do a segment of the game that's as long as it sounds it was without it feeling forced or contrived. I think making them re-do this chunk of the game over would push them closer to canceling the Endurance Run than the corruption of the video would.

I BELIEVE IN YOU VINNY!  WORK YOUR VIDEO MAGIC!

Whilst this is intensely depressing, it does make things all the more epic.

Posted by Dion

This sucks, I'm amazed with how much effort you put into all episodes. Keep it up GB!

Posted by LordAndrew

No, people were suggesting separate saves in case the save file goes corrupt. This is a problem with the video file going corrupt, something that most viewers never even considered.

Posted by EmptyQuarter

Vinny has his dock on the right of his screen like me!

Posted by dibiase77

I really hope you guys continue with Persona 4!!!

...

I'm buying a shirt.

... :)

Are you continuing with Persona 4 yet!?

Posted by The_Patriarch

Damn guys. Hope you get it working!

I like the sound of you going thru to the very end if you didnt stop after 2 weeks, so even if episode 50 is lost forever, I hope you continue on from wherever you are now.

Dion: Hello, brother. It's good to know another has joined the Aionic Order. With Eion, the clan now has 3 members.

Posted by shadowwolf9

Noooo! You must save it!

I really want to see how you guys react to the camp out.

Edited by Inertia

It's just amazing that they're ready to go to such lengths to get this to us. Shows how much they really care! Guys if you are going to give it to someone to get it fixed i'm prepared to donate. I'm sure quite a few other people will do the same!



Posted by Kraznor

I wish they'd get the episodes back down to twenty minutes or so. That I can handle every day. 50 minutes? Not so much.

Edited by Ben_H

"...the nearly 30 gig movie file got corrupted somehow in a transfer between Drew and Vinny's machines."

That happens to me all the time with my portable external hard drive and between my desktop and laptop when I compressed all my music to to transfer.  Always make a copy of the file before you do that so if the connection gets interrupted and jacks the file you still will have it.  OR break it into smaller pieces so if you lose one it isn't as big of a deal.

Edited by Media_Master

I hope it gets fixed soon

o yeah, 47min is a loooooonnnnnnnggggg time...

cut it to 30min or less

Not a "maccodity" either?  (Now that's a great user name... and makes me wonder if GB killed the Endurance Run with a broken lawn chair.) 

Posted by Cirdain

Dude.. you guys are Giant Bomb surly nothing can go wrong?

Posted by TehPickle

Oh god! This is terrible!

When I saw the "behind the scenes" video I thought "oooooh interesting." Little did I know of the grim portents it contained.

Aion: I wasn't aware these guys were making money by showing this? At the same time, I'm quite sure Atlus would be thrilled to discover how many of us have actually bought the game after viewing these. Hell, I bought it and dragged my dusty PS2 out of the wardrobe specially. I'm pretty damn sure I'm not the only one...

@Kraznor  @Media_Master

You guys may want them shorter (which is madness), but I'd like to see them longer!

2 hour epics, come on guys! EVERY DAY!

Posted by KnifeySpoony

Ah, that's tragic. Poor Vinny, I hope there's some way to salvage this.

Off topic note, it was awesome seeing Jeff walking around my old neighborhood (I used to live in Sausalito) I knew exactly where they were haha.

Posted by PowerSerj

The Ryan whispering part of this episode is the greatest piece in moving-picture form to come out of this site.

Posted by Suicrat

I just bought an XXL mummy teeshirt! A freeloader am I no longer! Now it's everyone else's turn. Giantbomb could turn this video corruption problem into record profits!

Posted by TehPickle

Oh and also....

I'd happily make a donation to get that file fixed!
