@xymox: I really enjoyed the Deadly Premonition ER, at least the VJ one. I like to see weird, perhaps even bad games, partly because I'd never play them myself. Not to mention all the fun there is to be had from watching Vinny/Jeff/Ryan/Brad/Patrick laugh at all the stupid crazyness in a game such as Deadly Premonition.
But yes, this is also enjoyable.

Posted by Xymox

this is a really good endurance run so far, a lot more enjoyable and way less painful to watch than deadly prem. It's nice that the game still holds up even after watching HCBailys let's play.

So... did they artificially insert the black-and-white background? It reminds me a lot of how XBLA will insert borders to some old games, which is why I ask.

Yeah. They did the same thing for Persona, I think, except on the sides to compensate for the 4:3 formatting of the PS2.

They should have done the PS1 version ... that way they'd get the anime cutscenes too. Ah well

I disagree. It has cut-scenes but every time a battle started there was a load time unlike the SNES version here which is obviously almost instant.

Patrick, big ups for the Crossfire reference. That game had one of the most badass toy commercials from my youth.

Patrick, shut the fuck up about learning bass. You don't casually play those basslines, unless you consider horrible intonation good enough.

@Peewi: lol i screamed at my screen too :S

Since this being an RPG, them aimlessly wondering around here is somewhat beneficial due to the EXP unlikein DP... but fucking Agent Honors, yo!

It's not a proper Endurance Run without the guys becoming horribly lost by missing what should have been obvious.

Yeah, it's a feature! I facepalmed many a time but ERs are entertaining, so no big deal. I always wanted to see how someone who wasn't obsessively completionist like me would play this game.
 
Things they missed so far (that I can recall) :
Naga Bromide in the cathedral hideout, in the room with three chests (it's the mirror). IIRC some old man with a naga fetish buys it
Took a long time to realize that you find Barle in the same place she disappeared
Brog's comments if he meets Marle
Brog can heal.
Also many Millennial Fair actions (ER 1) that can positively affect the upcoming story section, but that's player choice & consequence

It's got really serious loading issues with battle and menus. FF6 for the PS did as well.

Yep, tried to replay the PS1 version, and holy mother of god. 10-15 seconds of black screen when getting into menus, going through a screen, or anything that requires a load. Bleh.

It's pretty weird, but It's got to be a problem with the port they did. Even if you rip them to an ISO and try to play it on a PC, they're still pretty long, even though there's no seek time.

I remember getting lost at this point my first time in the game. Took a while of random bumbling to advance the plot.

Posted by Spaceyoghurt

@jozzy: You really should pick it up, it's a true gem. I'm even considering getting a DS so that I can play it on a handheld, even though I have beaten it loads of times.

"Game, I don't know how to feel. Put on some music... Am I... am I terrified?"

*contemplative, slightly sad music starts to play*

"...Thank you."

heh. Fantastic job, Mr. Klepek. This Endurance Run is getting good. :)

I yelled at them to go back to the castle for so long and had Patrick's EXACT reaction when Ryan found the passage on the right in the Canyon.

Posted by Bubbly

Well I guess it wouldn't be an Endurance Run without all these people raging in the comments about how the crew can't immediately figure something out. I don't know if you guys know this, but everyone gets stuck at certain points in video games. It can be the result of something small like accidentally missing an important piece of dialogue or not being able to find a somewhat hidden area transition, but it happens to everyone. There have been countless times throughout my life where I didn't know where to go or what to do in a game, and when I finally found out I would facepalm. This is something that happens to everybody and you all know it.
 
There is also the aspect of them constantly talking too each other which can ruin their focus on the game. There are certain games I don't like to play with a friend right beside me as it can be very easy to lose focus on the game and miss something because of small talk. Well I guess it doesn't matter. No one is gonna read my comment and people will just rage the next time something like this happens. Well I can take some solace in the fact that I will be enjoying this while numerous people will be raging. Keep on truckin' guys.

HEY PATRICK, if I tab out some of this, will you actually learn it?  If you say yes, it's a sacred bond.
 
Apologies for caps, but it was either that or post an attention-getting picture.

Man, I think Giant Bomb might be the largest community of pro gamers on the internet. Never before have I seen so many people who never die or get lost in video games before.

I totally didn't see that canyon thing during the cutscene either because I wasn't really paying attention. So, I guess I'm a dumb retard like Ryan and Patrick.

Bilkman is right. You people need to stop being so critical because this is just entertainment after all...

Make that four of us. I definitely wandered around this area a bunch when I played the game on the DS.

Posted by Dark_Lord_Spam

Well, no one can ever complain about Ryan and Patrick having played this game before again.

Posted by Forum_User

It drives me nuts when Ryan does stuff like not even look at "Brog's" abilties to see that he has a healing skill.

The commentary with Ryan and Patrick are more bordering on the 'technical' side of things, with saying things about the music and how this game still holds up. I was hoping for a bit more crazy or zany talk from them related to the storyline or dialogue, which is pretty absurd.

Posted by Purkinje

I got pretty far in this game, but never beat it. This really makes me want to play it again!

I love how the comments for the last episode were all about how they shouldn't be playing this game for the ER because Pattrick had already played it, and there were no surprises or discoveries, and the comments for this episode are all about how they have no idea what they are doing and that they suck at games.

There's a difference between not knowing the specific mechanics of a game and learning intuitively vs. Not knowing simple RPG tropes of the genre like READING THE STORY DIALOGUE.

I just don't get how Ryan can read pretty much every pointless bit of NPC trash dialogue in detail but skip through the important, story-progressing dialogue scenes without reading.

Posted by advkow

Ouch...this is why you have to pay attention guys! When they say 'where did she disappear?' then GO TO WHERE SHE DISAPPEARED FROM!!! :p

Posted by MasturbatingestBear

Oh man, so the trial should happen tomorrow. This is going to be great. I can't wait to see if they break out or wait the time limit, or even if they explore the dungeon at all, because you don't need to if you wait the time. Also will they save the guillotined shop owner? Only time will tell.

Posted by Einherjan

This is how I was when I first played the game.

Edited by Kosayn

I remember having to redo that forest a few times more than was strictly necessary back when I first played Chrono Trigger. This is the down side of watching someone's first experience with a game. Just skip ahead!

Also... practitioning. Love it.

I think this game has the greatest battle music of all-time. I start involuntarily bobbing my head every time I hear it.
