At the very begining of the game in the red room, there was a map of the Untited States with little Kaysen dolls on it that matched up with some of the locations in the stories York would tell during the game. Swery foreshadowed the hell outta that shit. VJ-01 about 9 minutes in you can see it.

I've seen this ending several times and it has the same effect on me every time I see it. That's some beautiful storytelling right there.

Damn..... so the sweetest character in the game is raped and impregnated with a parasitic plant? That is some fucked up shit.

oh man i still find it crazy that they pulled the Kaysen was and George was the raincoat killer. Because it just doesn't add up that George would be able to move around in crazy town meanwhile he and Emily hung around outside. Kinda funny thinking back that he first went on to kill the girls in such weird ways then come around again and ACCIDENTLY KILLING THEM. Oh god DP is the best fucked up game ever. 
 
Also emily dying without telling York/Zach that she also saw the zombies... gosh, they need to explain that or i'll cry

So he falls into the basement of the theater, then walks DOWN a thousand steps in an underground citadel and ends up on top of a clock tower.

what a stupid ending(ish). 
 
thank god i could just watch them play and i didn't have to play myself.

GIVE IT UP FOR SWERY!!!!!!WOOOOOOHHH
 
Also, this ending still made more sense then Heavy Rain.
 
EDIT: the reactions and jokes from team VJ were really fucking lame this episode. *sigh* this ER blowed.Not the fault of the game, though.

I enjoyed watching this more than i enjoyed the movie mystic river.

Favorite line of the episode...
 
Jeff: "Switch to an index finger or something. Keep it clackin'!"

Posted by dbz1995

'...George is dead. You have nowhere else to run.'
 
HOLY SHIT ITS BATMAN

I really, really loved the stunned, awkward silence that went on throughout the cutscenes in this video after reaching the community center. 
 
A little disappointing that they didn't continue on to finish the game, as that gives them some time to let it all sink in. I was really looking forward to Jeff and Vinny's commentary while watching the credits roll after a long, long barrage of complete and utter insanity.
 
Also, fuck that running sequence. I beat this game weeks ago and my finger is still tired.

bah what a bad ending so far. That thomas in the clock tower scene was so good, it makes you wonder why the rest of the cutscenes weren't like that :(

WHAT THE FUCK IS THIS GAME??

Posted by Lazyaza

DP had a pretty steady curve of weirdness up until the late game where it seems like the developers just went; "fuck it lets go CRAZY!"
 
Cant wait for the conclusion, this ER has been awesome.

Really, you thought that the scene with Thomas was better than the Zach explanation? Was it because there was no hooks to the face?

What is it with the Endurance Run and creepy raper guys?

So, Zach is David Bowie c. "Modern Love"?
Posted by Besetment

I'm still with Jeff in that they should explain the zombies or it will be really frustrating. HAVE we been shooting civilians all this time, or what? Will they tell us or not?

Because no one likes creepy raper guys. Much easier to shoot in the head.

Some things are best left unanswered. Isn't that right, York?

Started to water-up like crazy... Damn it all.

Posted by Shinri

Also, I like that the zombies and the otherworld stuff is never explained. Just wouldn't be right if they did.

Posted by Tordah

Man, this game got even more messed up towards the end.

Posted by Death_Burnout

First LOST and now this :'(

Posted by SpunkyHePanda

Oh Christ.

Posted by cap123
@IronRinn:  no, i just thought that they spent more time on it. It was well composed and well lit, and thomas was acting like a pyscho when the whole game he had been so passive and weak, so i felt it packed way more punch.
 
The explanation itself was quite cool, but accompanied with ridicoulous boss fights and some silly dialogue it seemed lazy, silly chase scene and some key stuff left unexplained too. (but of course, they've still got time to explain next episode)

Kaysen's first form is a slightly less fat Rufus.

Just pretend that Kojima made this. GOTY.

BOOMER!  
 
And oh man, couldn't you guys just finish it? Watch the last cutscene be like three minutes. The suspense is killing me. 
 
And poor Emily.

Posted by Earthborn

"Are tired already?" 
  
 
YES GAME GO

Ok, I see what you're saying. The boss fights in the game are probably the weakest parts, definitely. I think that, for me at least. the whole Zach reveal/fate of Emily kind of outshines everything ridiculous about the boss fight. I almost went through it in a state of shock. Thomas's final scene probably benefits from the lack of otherworldly craziness, but Zach/Emily is what really stuck with me after the game.
 
Edit: Also, while I realize that they have already finished the run well in advance of me posting this, I really hope they took a little time to talk to some people in Greenvale before ending the game as some of those conversations fill in a few blanks.

York always gets the girls.

Posted by LordAndrew

York's Kaysen revelation was kind of odd. Didn't he already figure that out at the hospital?

What kind of Raincoat Killer walks around town not killing anyone? Harry must have remembered wrong.

"Try not to hurt..." INVESTIGATION FAILURE
You guys are awsome. :D

And... did you somehow manage to change the past by defeating Kaysen? Huh?

Posted by Baggykins

I wanted to see Harry coming in his wheelchair to save Zach, seems to be plausable in this game.

Posted by mutha3

GOTY people.

Posted by PLWolf

That was...interesting. Wouldn't you agree, York?

Posted by EmperorSeth

Shame about the lack of giant dogs.  That was the first place that I saw them, and I just assumed it would be the same for VJ.  Once they finish the game, they should check out that episode of the BR run.  Good work on the boss fight, though!  It's not particularly hard, but that last form can take forever.  The worst thing is if you get on his shoulder for that last shot but you don't get it in time, he regenerates ALL his health!  Totally sucked when it happened to me.

Posted by cap123
@IronRinn:  I definitely liked parts, but overall as an ending i thought the pace suffered a bit when they stuck in bad game bits, (kind of the tale of the whole game though haha) which could have been replaced with a quick cutscene. 
 
I did really like how Zach's character totally changed after they swapped over, into a more sensitive, less cool guy. And Emily's sacrifice was great too. They could have had them right next to each other, followed by whatever happens next, and it would have been way more effective! They could have cut out 2/3 of the boss fight i think, and just have the kaysen doll stage. 
 
But whatever, i will leave my judgement for the final episode!

ho-leee shit.  I want to see replays with shooting Kaysen and yourself.

They're already finished.
 
I can't wait for them both to finish so they can compare their playthroughs and see how much the other missed.
Posted by Pepsiman

You know what's fun? Doing that long quick time sequence on the stairwell while Zack is crippled and has to move slower than a tortoise stuck in molasses. It happened to me the first time I fought Kaysen and lemme tell ya, I had the time of my life trying to beat that sequence with Zack in that state.
