I repeat: endurance run!! 

Posted by jubatron

Wow, I need a computer and some money so I can get this.  Also, I'd like to add my voice to the "Brad, slow down" chorus.

Posted by Zaph
@Vager: That last comment you made was classic. I love how Brad's death notoriety has gone intergalactic.

Anyone know at what times the guys are playing?

Okay, this video convinced me to try this 7GB bad boy out. But only for the weekend, I'm not into the mmo thing.

Posted by PapaLazarou

That guy is so easy to beat u noobs.

Posted by WindowColours

Im not sure if this works on Windows 7, but you guys can always plug in extra keyborads so that dave and vinny can help too. As long as the keys don't match they can help too. I used to do this to play Typing of the dead with my friends who couldn't type well when they come over.

Edited by Adziboy

It's super mega annoying how Dave and Vinny are trying to be subtle about the SLOW DOWN BRAD IN COMBAT SO YOU CAN ACTUALLY WIN and he refuses, so Vinny and Dave are practically telling him to slow down and he still doesn't... 
 
Just finished watching it all and Brad definitely made up for not slowing down. 
 
Also, lol @ "Brad didn't die, amazing".

That battle with the big ship was somewhat painful to watch. Brad is kind of bad at games.

Posted by Berkut

Man, that last fight was awesome!  :)

Posted by Yummylee

I am writing love letters to these videos, so awesome. And christ that first larger freighter ship or whatever, fuckin intense. 
 
Whats more...TWINS BASIL!!

Would this be great live?

This is making me want to preorder this just to play the beta.......must.....resist.......buying.....impulse.....aaahhhhhhhhhhhh!!!

We tried to take down a group of Klingons today; failed miserably at that.

I get the feeling I'm going to have to repeat this for the whole serie: 
Guys you do more damage if you AIM by pressing C!
 
And don't forget  to roll if your shield gets low.

LOL Brad made that fight with battleship way harder then it should have being :)  Still, the result that counts!

Posted by Sharpshooter

I want a beta key so bad now, but I know there are none and that sucks harder than vacuum.

Endurance run ftw! Right!? ...right?

Oh man, I couldn't not sign up for the Beta after watching these. Currently downloading the client.
 
*sigh*, only 7-9 hours left until finished.
 
Edit: The ending was great, especially Vager's comment.

EPIC

@atomic_dumpling: Sweet, thanks.
Posted by MrKlorox

I guess the video is popular because it won't download faster than just a few KBPS.

Posted by Mezmero

Freakin' amazing!  These videos of the beta just keep getting better and better.  I'm actually impressed how much Star Trek reverence this game has.  These 3 make an awesome group for this series as well.  I'm actually impressed that Dave really does know his Star Trek lore across the board series-wise.  Even if his references dont get precise I always catch what he's talking about having watched most of the series' myself.  Along with Vinny's humor and Brad's threshold for survival, this really is the dream team of this Star Trek mini-series.  For the glory of Sea-Biscuitonia!
Edited by DRE7777

Its very frustrating to watch brad play, sometimes I just want to rip the mouse and keyboard away from brads hands haha 
 
Although I have to say, that battle was totally epic

@Kaigan: Thanks a lot, man! Never would've found that otherwise. Now I can properly waste my weekend.

I don't know if it has been mentioned, but you can switch between hand-to-hand or your rifle by pressing "Z" or clicking the button on the far left of your action bar.

Star Trek KOTOR? I'd play that! "
Hell yeah.
Posted by Evilsbane

The main thing that is wrong with this game is I have no idea what in the hell leveling up does, I don't know where to focus my skill points it is really confusing, not as bad as Eve though Jesus that game makes me cringe and its not from a lack of playing games nothing makes any sense!

@ThePhilatron: Dunno what the policy is with links, but since I'm such a great guy, I'm willing to go through purgatory just for you.

After spending some time with this game, it seems pretty alright. My only complaints are the ship controls are really wonky. The ship combat looks awesome but actual firing your weapons and trying to maneuver is really tough. The ground combat is much better if a tad simple. But that's probably because I only have a couple skills so far. On the contrary though, all the menus and stats are extremely complicated and seem very inaccessible. Most of time in Star Trek Online was similar to all my time with Eve Online where I'm just saying "WHAT DOES ANY OF THIS MEAN?!" Obviously, this is something that will get better with time but one of the most important things about MMOs, as World of Warcraft has proven, is accessibility and I feel that STO might alienate some people.
 
Overall, though, I'm liking it. The shooting feels fun, especially for a MMO. And its got a very action-y feel which is especially welcome with MMOs. Cryptic also did a great job of nailing the Star Trek vibe. I doubt I'll be playing after the beta but for a game that I thought looked real bad, it was a pleasant surprise.

Brad isn't good at games. 
 
But I still love him.

Posted by Myrmidon

I love this series. It's a rollercoaster of emotion - from Brad driving way too fast, to watching comrades die before your glassy fish-like eyes. Such beautiful despair.

Vager's comment at the end was epic.

@MAST: For the record, it was hounding me to update the drivers (not that they're more than a few months out of date, since I did a re-install with windows 7). I did that last night, haven't run the game since. I also haven't tweaked any visual settings, just whatever it detected or defaulted to. Maybe I'm just used to MW2 on the xbox locked at 60fps now...
Posted by Lind_L_Taylor

So far this game looks pretty damn good. I might have to fork over another $200 for a permanent account.

Posted by dagas

I thought the game was hard so I hoped to get some tips from here, but I'm sad to say Brad plays even worse than I do. How do they expect someone to be able to fight 20 battleships alone (that happened to me once).

That's really weird. It should run just fine for you on that setup. I have a significantly less powerful system then what you have, and mine runs just fine.
Posted by MattQ

Dudes need to turn up the volume on your recordings, I can barely hear you speak.

Posted by Mechanized

Can't wait to see the next one. I keep playing along with the videos, either a few quests ahead or behind.
