3rd time through. Miss ya Ryan

Posted by AlexanderSheen

I have mixed feelings about this ER. In the beginning it was awful and by the end it became kind of great. I don't know man.

Posted by ChrisTaran

And finally finished my 3rd... maybe 4th watch of this excellent ER. Thank you Brad and Ryan.

Posted by Poppy_Persona

Yep just watched this again all the way through. It was lovely to hear Ryan's voice again on a regular basis. What to do now, Chrono Trigger again i guess...?

Posted by kavukavu

We made through this again Ryan, goddamnit this game is weird.

Posted by MooseyMcMan

Just finished watching through this again.

Rest in peace, Ryan.

I can't wait for the inevitable Vinny Drew Dave ER

Posted by kerse

I want to see a 3 person ER next, that would be pretty good I think. Dave would be a good 3rd person, maybe when the sites done being built.

Here's hoping that Jeff will be made into a liar sometime soon as well.

!! Oh man 21:00 Brad actually DOESN'T want the game to be over? For once? :D

Posted by RandomInternetUser

Oh, they're fine. They just talk to ghosts.

@Draxyle: It's going to be a Chrono Trigger ER now. :-)

Oh man. Finally finished BR's run. I had only watched VJ's run because that's who I was more comfortable with after P4, but BR surprised me. They started off hating it so much more than VJ but ended up loving it much more, even though they clearly had a more miserable time with the mechanics than VJ.
 
I hope another Endurance Run is in the works someday soon, definitely the best feature on this site. But how the hell are you going to top Deadly Premonition? Seriously, how? They don't make games like that, ever. I would totally get DP if it were available on the PS3.

Thank you Ryan, Brad, and specially Swery for an amazing ride. Deadly Premonition absolutely redeemed itself for me, and I am shocked that it didn't come up more frequently (not even for best ending) during the 2010 GOTY stuff.

So sad that they aren't doing an Endurance Run this year...

Posted by Devoid

Wait, why did both teams think that that was a bee at the end? It's obviously the ladybug from the opening scene of the game.

Posted by KEITH1437

Its April, time to start a new endurance run.

27:19 Why did those chip munks/squirrels make monkey noises?

@Shtinky: Yeah I watch a lot of his stuff too.Though I like him better back in the day, he had more better moments, now he tries too much.Not bad but he kind of repeats the same thing time and time again.Though the Fallout 3, Batman:Arkham Asylum , Indigo Prophecy, Red Dead Redemption and Heavy Rain were by far the funniest and best ones he has done.

 Please start new ER soon.
 
other let's plays suck.

Team BR rules! Thanks guys.

No it just takes a huge amount of time, they'll do another one when they're ready and don't have much going on.
Posted by Rannos22

Having watched similar "endurance runs" (or let's plays as the internet normally calls them) lately and having rewatched this, I must say I'm stoked for Endurance Run season three.
Nobody plays games and  makes jokes like the GB crew!

Do they need to get the "OK" from the publisher to do a endurance run?
Posted by KiroMatic

now a Brad and Ryan Persona 4 endurance run

Posted by Shtinky

You know, there's loads of stuff like this on youtube if you guys are really jonesing for some endurance runs or "playthroughs" as they're called. Darksydephil has a tonne of them on youtube and they're pretty funny (he's doing AC: brotherhood right now).

Posted by voltan

Finally finished both Deadly Premonition endurance runs. Brad and Ryan ER was my favorite.

Posted by xAbleAssassinx

Anyone notice the squirrels at the beginning make monkey noises?

Posted by Spaceyoghurt

Just finished watching this ER for the second time. Big thanks to you, Brad and Ryan. Just love how your enthusiasm for the game and the story grows as everything is about to unfold. Really looking forward to your next endurance run (yeah, I know, never again, huh?), you two make a great team. So huge props to you guys!

Posted by RagingLion

Just wanted to leave a note that I finally finished the BR DP ER having initially stopped watching both after about 20 episodes and only following through to the conclusion with Vinny and Jeff at the time.  It was fun again the second time round and the finally few episodes still retained their drama.  It made more sense in my head this time through ... especially with the York and Zach stuff.  Don't feel like there's any real loose ends this time.  Deadly Premonition tells a really good story and has an ending to rival games considered generally of a much greater quality than this.

The seed gave off a gas when it rained and the townspeople become berserk due to the gas, thats why there were zombie monster things.
Posted by InternetDetective

Please start new ER soon. Need endurance run. Need it in my heart and in my life.
 
Either that or a daily BombCast.
 
I have no friends.

Posted by drakesfortune

They better do more endurance runs.  It should be a staple of the site.

Posted by Max_Hydrogen

Finally, I get to watch the final episode BR DP ER. Ryan should work for the Diplomatic Service. Wow, both teams envisioned a Kaysened faced bee, man, you Bombers sure do think a like. Don't be so hesitant: Press the button! 
 
Thanks guys, you gave me something to look forward to everyday. 
 
Tip to all would be game designers: Don't blow your budget on location research!

The Endurance Run is dead! Long live the Endurance Run!

Posted by X19

I have just finished watching both endurance runs and want to thank Giantbomb for doing this Endurance Run. Not owning a 360 myself it was great to watch you guys play Deadly Premonition and listen to your commentary throughout the game. Although the game had some problems, the story and characters really had an impact on me which I don't find very much in games.
 
Hopefully SWERY will start work on a Deadly Premonition 2 for PS3 and 360 some time in the future. Until then I hope I find another game with a good story to fill my free time. 
 
Thanks again Giantbomb really appreciate all the work you put into the site.

Posted by WEKS

I'd like to see both endurance teams return, but with two separate games.

Posted by Beeelow

This endurance run was very entertaining.  I know it's early and you're still recovering but please eat your words and do more.

Posted by darkdragonsoul99

I think all 4 of them should do a endurance run on a 4 player co-op game

Posted by Deusoma

Well, I'll certainly never play this game myself because the storyline was clearly the best part and I've seen that here, thanks to the Bomb Squad, but I will say this:
 
I enjoyed the hell out of the Endurance Run(s), and while I totally assumed going in that it would just be a Let's Play of a shitty game, a la Hamst3r's coverage of I'm Not Alone, it turns out that despite all the crappy gameplay Brad and Vinny had to put up with, Deadly Premonition had a damned good plot, and if SWERY ever puts out a sequel, preferably one with a more ironed out combat system, I'm definitely looking into it. :)

Posted by TaylorPollock

Deadly Premonition--A true work of genius
 
The only way to improve on it was to have the Giant Bomb'rs riffing on it's amazing twists and turns as they played it for us.
 
I loved every minute of both runs.  I really hope that after the guys recuperate from the effort this took that they will recognize they not only provided quality entertainment, they actually moved opinion of a game that was likely to drop out of sight without a trace, and generated huge interest, respect and sales from their efforts.  
 
Pretty huge for something that was "just" an Endurance Run.
 
Thanks for your hard work on this, guys.
 
Well done.

So long and thanks for all the fish.
Posted by nxau

Thank you Brad and Ryan, it's been a pleasure enduring this with you!

Edited by Ghostiet

Thank you, guys and thank you, Deadly Premonition. I'm just sad there wasn't any final card, like in the final episode of the P4 Endurance Run.

" Q: Can games be art? A: Deadly Premonition. "

I'd say this, Mother 3 and Planescape: Torment are games that got real fucking close to literature.
Posted by CitizenKane

An epic journey comes to a close.  Thanks, Brad and Ryan!  It was a great ride!

Posted by Tetraphagia

I definitely never could have made it through this game on my own, so thanks to Vinny, Jeff, Brad, and Ryan for the ER.  The gameplay flaws were pretty awful, but I really did enjoy the story.  So, definitely kudos for that, SWERY.
 
Great ER, and I'm looking forward to another!

Posted by Zlimness

Thanks for the show, Team BR.

Posted by Rox360

And now I've watched both of 'em. I'll say it again, thanks to everyone at Giant Bomb for making this happen, particularly you, Brad. Bless you. And you Ryan for softening the blows for him, and for us.
 
And thanks again to SWERY for creating one of the games I can honestly say will remain somewhere in the back of my mind, probably for many years to come. Your dudes need to work on actually making games, but I'll be damned if the writing and characters in Deadly Premonition didn't charm me blind from very early on, and kept getting better until the very last end where I had to admit that it is, at least parts of it, sheer brilliance.
 
Kick-ass.
