God  Brad she only switches walls win you follow her with the flashlight .
 
Edit:   bloody hell you have for 5 weeks Vinny knows how to play way don't you. 
 In fact  I demand that Ryan play this game from now on and you shod never play a video game ever again.

well now i'm convinced that ryan hates brad

Posted by Milkman

I am so glad that Brad died during the wall lady because I don't think I could have survived watching that place twice in one day. The infinite shotgun is not worth that. NOTHING IS!
 
Also, man, that lunch music was kicking!

"Why is it closed?"
 Errrr.. because the owner and chef is in jail right now?

I'm not sure I've ever seen such a mixed bag of a game. Seriously, one minute you're watching an entertaining cutscene about psychotic townsfolk, the next minute you're going through unbelievably tedious and clunky side missions. Good lord.

Posted by Henrikhoe

Oh god, i just watched again, and i seriously wanted to tear out my har a million times. Okay, we know brad is not good at games, but i dont get the meaning behind all the things he does. I mean his strategy, what is he thinking. 
 
And all he does if he dies is blame the game. Dont blame the game brad, thats low. I followed all your episodes, and on some you are on a really high note, u seem like enjoying the game, and then when u face enemies and switch weapon when they are 2 feet away from you. U cant blame the game for that. 
 
Seriously Brad. What the f are u thinking.  
 
Im just following VJ for now on. Im going balled for all the hair i pulled.

 Lol at the youtube-esque comments about Brad. Brad's comically bad video game skills along with Ryan's quick wit is what gives this endurance run its personality. Video games aren't always serious business kids. And to cut Brad some slack, it seems like it would be quite a challenge to play this game after playing something that actually controls well.

I hope they end up doing that letter quest. It's pretty quick and easy with a decent reward.

Surprised they couldn't figure out how to drive through the gate right away. I am pretty sure they have blasted through these gates during the racing minigame.

Unfortunately, I'm losing interest in BR's run and find myself doing that a little as well.

" You know what is worse than Brad's skills at DP? You guys complaining about it as if he owes it to you to be awesome at this game. But hey, if your cheetos-encrusted fingers are compelled to type hate onto the internets because you have nothing better to do, go for it! It just puzzles me as to what your motives are. "

my motive is to see better gameplay, and progression. very simple. whats your motive for making fun of people who give a fuck about the endurance run at giant bomb? fuck off guy. "
If you want those things ... then why not just play the game? You'd safely meet your objectives that way. (although you could suck who knows) Listen, at the end of the day I don't think they are making these videos to show off their skills, nor do I think they make them with the intent on getting feedback on said skills. It's called an endurance run for a reason guys. You go through ups and downs... and yes ruts. But hey, your luxury as a viewer is pretty rad. You could... you know, skip ahead through tedious spots, or even skip episodes completely! or... even not watch at all!

Pulled a Brad.

@shoddyrobot: 
Or he can bring up the problems he has with the ER, and the staff can improve upon it if they decide to. Which is the point of these comment sections.   
 
Feedback.
 
No one is asking for a fucking speedrun. Jesus.
Posted by Konanda

Man listening to Brad make excuses as to why he sucks at games gets annoying.

Posted by OneManX

Do people understand they they play the game for like 30-40 mins a day? 
 
And it's obvious that they a re not looking for any FAQ or hints, seeing as they are just stumbling across side missions. They are playing the game to have fun.

@MatthewB92:  OMG I KNOW RIGHT
Posted by mithical

Am I the only one who noticed that Brad handled the first few rooms WAY better than Vinny? Brad is a lot worse with the wallcrawlers though.. he seemed to be developing an instinct to run from dangerous situations instead of standing there and getting mouth-fisted, strangled, shot, grabbed, etc., but then when the wallcrawler switches walls right next to him, he refuses to book it.

Posted by suprAwesome

I am positive next endurance run they are gonna pull straws to see who plays with Brad. 
 
Love ya Brad but watching you play this game is one of the most challenging things ever.
 
My hat goes off to Ryan though and his awe-inspiring patience.

There was nothing terrible about this episode, internet breeds haters.

Posted by Beforet

These videos are getting kind of frustrating. And it's not because Brad is bad at the game: that's half the reason I'm watching these. But what's ruining the BR series for me is Brad's damn attitude. His constant bitching does nothing but bring everything down. Especially when he's blaming the game every time he messes up.
 
The swearing is also annoying, but I guess I'm not one to talk.

Posted by Scooper

Ok I'm gunna stick with the VJ ER instead now and leave this one for another time. The constant bitching in this just makes a bad situation even worse and it's just annoying to listen to.

" Brad, I have not played this game but judging from what I've seen please give this a try. 
 
When she's trying to grab you, try to run away just enough, turn around and shoot her. Or if you feel confident, use a melee weapon. It seems like the wall bitch is stuck in a grab animation as well.  As I said I haven't played this game and thanks to these ERs, I just have to watch you guys. Keep it up! "
After seeing how much trouble the first Crawler gave them I PM'd Brad with pretty much this exact strategy.  Wait for her to get close, run past her, quick-turn, then blast her with the shotgun.  I did this on all of the Crawlers in the game (except the first, since you don't get the shotgun until after her) and none of them touched me.   
 
I wasn't a dick about it and I didn't rant about how he was "playing wrong" or "zomg u suk at gamezlol".  Just kept it in the tone of wanting to give helpful advice.  I kinda figured there was little to no chance he'd actually read the PM, as I imagine the staffers get tons of them on a daily basis, but I thought it was worth a shot.  I just hope that he gets the hang of fighting the Crawlers, as there are still several more along the main story's path that he'll have to make it through to finish the game. 
 
I very much enjoyed this game, but you'll never hear me make apologies for the combat.  It is terrible and the Crawlers are by far the worst part.  Just because there's an easy way of beating them doesn't make them suck any less.

Brad, you just need to relax and keep it cool during these endurance runs. Just think of the game as a corny horror movie and have fun with it. That said, your still awsome Brad!
 
Update: Everyone needs to stop bitching about how Brad plays the game. He doesn't have to do this endurance run, but he is for the sake of our entertainment. Gve the guy some credit.

Edited by JoelTGM

uhoh, they're trying that map B as well... lol great
edit:  thank god they got out of that.  Guys don't bother with it, it's an unlimited shotgun but it takes like an hour to get through.

That scene with Emily made this episode.

Why is Brad so bad at games? Vinny had no problem with wall lady..

Where did BR get their fancy radio? I stopped watching these a while ago.

Doesn't sound like Brad's having any fun at all.
Posted by NekuCTR

 I would say something about Brads skills in this, and perhaps all video games, but I think Ryans' mono-tonal cometary throughout half of these videos about says it all.

Ironically, I think today it's solely because of the wall lady. Brad really seemed to cheer up in the whole ER the very moment before they've encountered that fucking mini-boss.

That's because the game is god-damn awful in almost every single way. They aren't REALLY playing it to have fun, they are playing it to entertain us. And I personally am enjoying it :D 
I especially like the little conversation at the start with Ryan explaining that the Radio doesnt REALLY teleport you there, you drive there (technically George drives you there) and it just skips the drive for you. And Brad just sitting there like "It's a magic radio!"
Posted by Tearhead

Why does Brad feel the need to get so close to the zombies?

Posted by JackiJinx

Brad, you'd probably be having a better time if you laughed at yourself a bit more when crap gets painful. That said, I'm glad to see you guys haven't quit yet.

Posted by WindFall259

Kinda actually glad they didn't go through the entire paranormal area. The payoff isn't as exciting as it should be.

Vinny also plays it very safe, which takes so long to kill her.

"Synergy Zach, pure synergy. How can two Endurance Runs end up in the same place even though they came about the spiritual maps at different times. Now that's what I call a bond Zach, a Giantbond." 
 
The infinite shotgun is not worth it and frankly, I don't think Brad could survive the four or five crawlers in there. Now would someone just please go and see Harry! Mysterious capitalist don't like to be kept waiting. 
 
Trying to beat the Crawler with the shovel, that's just ballsy.
 
"What's that Zach? You get nauseous every time you the word 'Shotie'? That reminds me of a case I was working on where communists in the State department were strangled to death by J. Edgar Hoover's panties. That was as sickening as California grammar. What's that? If the lead investigator says he doesn't believe Nick is the perpetrator, then why does he have to stay locked up as the prime suspect, which is a gross violation of his rights? Beat's the duckshit out of me Zach, this game, with its invisible food, just sucks."

Haha, oh Brad. Food scene was funny. Oh Emily.

Thank god they left that tunnel... SOOO BORING. After JV did it, I don't want to see it for a while.

"In case you were wondering he was stuck in his post-shotgun firing animation"
 
No, dude, you fired at the wrong time, missed the zombie, and got grabbed because you need to be penalized for making foolish mistakes.  She.  Cannot.  Be.  Shot.  Unless.  She.  Is.  Glowing.  It's not that fucking hard.
