I bet it's harder to do things recorded in one shot, in an busy office, only doing it 1/2 hour  at a time. Especially when Brad seems like he'd rather do anything but play this game :P

Is it wrong that I know how to get to the hotel without checking the map, even though I've never played this game...
 
Also, they really should have peeked into Emily's house.

It's a good thing Giantbomb is doing an endurance run of this game. The only enjoyment I get from this game is them making fun of how much junk it is.  I'm sure Ignition loves the endurance run, too.

Good job, in  responding to the arguments I brought up.
 
Yet again you take one superficial statement from my post and harp on it endlessly. You.....seem to have severe reading comprehension issues.
 
I'm still waiting for you to point out when I ever insulted the staff or somehow justify your little hissy fit launched against several of the dissenters. You can say whatever you want, but until you morons came into the frame the commentators were very civilized.
 
EDIT: also, lets stop crapping up the comments.

u so funi 
 
EDIT: Actually, you know what? I was annoyed at the people who went on and on about things Jeff and Vinny should have done in Persona, but here it's different - Brad and Ryan spend almost all of their fucking playtime complaining about things, and then they permanently miss things that can solve some of their problems. It's fucking frustrating.

If you didn't notice, the song when you're talking to the creepy pot lady around 7:00 at her house sounds a LOT like Super Mario World.

Some people have literally made over 10 comments just to argue over someone else playing a video game.  I love this site.
Posted by Spiritof

There's really only about three or four side quests that have actually done much for me so far:
 
1. Collecting the bones and then letting F.K.'s dog take them
2. Buying the map at the Milk Barn
3. Visiting The General at the Junkyard
 
All give weapon and speed bonuses, the rest (so far) seem menial and borderline worthless. I could give a wet fart about collecting all the cards.

Maybe the reason many agree with them is because their opinions are very agreeable? I don't take everything into account, but much of what they say is nice and honest.

I think all the hate is warranted, they are both being fucking idiots when it comes to this game. They haven't learned anything about the game  and or how it works the whole time they have been playing.

Posted by DougJustice

Im getting pretty sick of people hating on this game. It was pretty low-budget, and i think it's quirky as hell and quite endearing. So suck it up. The game isn't gonna magically look or play any better. Learn to love it's weird lovableness.

Keep going Bryan!  We're only at the start of the open-world bit, so I'm sure you'll work out the best way of doing things in the DP world soon enough.  I'm progressing in my understanding of it as you are.

What's up with the broken quoting?

Posted by mutha3
@gunslingerNZ: 
 
 


I would suggest you take some of your 'sage' advice here. Ryan and Brad can indeed do whatever they want when they play DP and should be able to do so without being subject to pages and pages of abuse and criticism from people like yourself. 
 

 ''abuse'? what? when did I ever in these pages insult the staff?
 
I guess figuratively saying commentators are obsessed with them by saying they fellate them....?

 My intention isn't to insult the staff at all. Rather, I just want them to improve their mistakes and make a better viewing experience for us all. Looking at past experiences, they appreciate feedback and have always tried to make improvements. Besides, they're putting these videos out in the public for anyone to watch, if you do that any criticism is fair game.
 
I say people who jump at the throats  of anyone making the slightest dissenting comment hurt discussion faaaar more.
 
 


If they want to play the game by constantly referring to the map, ignoring some of the side quests and spending many many hours under the belief they were being attacked by a horde of bees THEN SO BE IT! The market can decide whether or not that makes for an entertaining watch and most of us believe it does. If it annoys you guys so much then just stop watching, it's simple really any 'idiot' could understand it :)  

 The market should also be able to  voice their displeasure without being jumped at by rabid fanboys. If they just fix a few small things like team VJ did......it would be perfect.
 
Besides, I actually feel team BR is much,much better then they were at the beginning. I'm mostly responding to posts now because people who can't handle dissenting opinions really tick me off.
 
With that I salute all readers of the comment section

Well, you seem to imply that the staff is somehow lying by calling me naive when I stated that they're reason for starting P4 was them wanting to play it. Which is what they said pretty clearly.
 
I don't believe I have ever denied the bolded. As you can see in my previous post:  I(maybe?) misunderstood the guy who was making that original comment. I thought he was  with the  ancient 'THE ENDURANCE RUN SPIRIT MEANS  NOT PAYING ATTENTION TO THE TUTORIALS AND PLAYING THINGS 20 HOURS LONGER THAN YOU SHOULD'' crowd.

Seeing how they conveniently ALWAYS did the exact same thing commentators told them to and relied heavily on tips and fusion combination's from the audience.

"They said this many times but: They needed daily video content, and they wanted to play P4. "
 
This is exactly my point... Why did you bother typing all that other trash. They weren't playing Person 4 just because they couldn't play it at home and work was a convenient place to play it. They were doing it because it was a good way to have regular, entertaining content for the site.
 

 Well, you seem to have reading comprehension issues so I decided to go a bit in depth. Let me try and break this down and simplify this for you:
 
-They had been throwing around the idea for daily content
-They wanted to play P4
-They had no prior idea if it would be a hit with their audience or not
-They decided to do  it anyways because they wanted to play the game
 
This is what they claimed and I'm sorry but, its hard to take your conspiracy nonsense seriously when the staff members have always been upfront about these sorts of things.
 
It also doesn't help your case that they had no possible idea this would catch on at all.
 

So yes the point of the endurance run was to be entertaining for the users. So the guy who you criticised for saying this: " All of you people who think the Endurance run is serious business are missing the fucking point. "   Was 100% correct. "

 
We complainers,as the users, would like Brad and Ryan to stop blowing at this game. And seeing how this Endurance Run was started because of us, the users, its not a good idea to make less entertaining video content because of some vague bullshit ''ER spirit'' so many users like to throw around. 
 
I can't really speak for what his intention was with that post, but that's what I interpreted it as. A lot of users do that same shit in response to every criticism people make. And seeing how people who criticize this want better video: its not much of a stretch to assume that's what he's implying.

 ''Hey guy, maybe you should use the smo-''
 
''SRS BZNISS THE ER SPIRIT IS TO COMPLETLY SUCK AT A GAME AND TAKE 20 HOURS LONGER  TO COMPLETE THEN NORMAL PEOPLE''

And what if I told you that watching them endlessly complain about how much the game sucks as they did for the first couple episodes is not entertaining, and that we've been suggesting they do these things to make the game easier and more fun to watch because maybe then they will have less frustration with the parts they don't like or will be able to get through them quicker and better focus on making witty comments and joking about random things instead of endlessly whining like Brad did all throughout the first week?

" @mutha3: Don't be so naive, sure that's what they say on the podcast and it was a convient excuse to do it 

Um. I think you need to cut back on the conspiracy theorizing, dude.
 
 They've stated plenty of times that if they really didn't want to do it: they would just quit. They've always been up front about things like advertisement and review scores(its what Jeff got presumebly fired for) I think its pretty silly to suspect them of doing such a thing when they really didn't expect the ER to be the hit it is now at all. No one  expected Persona to turn into what it is now.
 
 They said this many times but: They needed daily video content, and they wanted to play P4.
 


 but there's no way they would have kept putting those videos up if it wasn't the entertainment success it was.  So yeah there was a point, it was to entertain the community by playing a funny/quirky game to its completion. "

  
Well, obviously. but that doesn't change the original intent or as some people like to call it 'spirit'. The ER was started as an attempt to play through P4 and it happened to turn into the most popular feature on the site.
 
If it would have fizzled out and nobody would watch them, they would naturally stop doing those vids.This one(like I just said) was put up because people wanted it. There is no ''rule set'' or special motivation involved here.
