The staff playing really short games, like an hour or so long. Like Beat em' ups, shoot em' ups, or other games with similar lengths. I did enjoy that semi-ER that was Bad Dudes, it'd be great to have more stuff like that. It'd also be a good way to shed light on beat em' ups that have not been as popular like a Final Fight or Streets of Rage like game such as Undercover Cops or Violent Storm.  
 
I know what you're saying: "What the FUCK do you mean daily?" I mean , like once a week maybe? And have each episode be hosted by a different team. Hopefully my dream team - Ryan Davis and Matthew Rorie - will do an episode. After being so disappointed by he last ER (Patrick Klementia ruined it.) it seems like a good idea to make up for those sad fans.  Also, if Patrick Klementia and Patt Sessler are apart of one episode, I'm not watching. 
 
What are your thoughts?

You mean like Random PC Game? Or Load Our Last Save?

I don't think you understand the purpose of an endurance run.

#4 Posted by FluxWaveZ (19382 posts) -

Yeah, that's not an Endurance Run.

I like them playing long games and getting attached to characters. Watching them play a 3 hour beat 'em up once a week with nothing visually interesting to watch would get boring.

I don't think it would get boring if the right people are doing the episode. The Chrono Trigger ER was boring because of you know who...........

I don't know who. Which person didn't know where to go when they'd already gone there in the previous episode?

#8 Edited by believer258 (12176 posts) -

I thought his name was Patrick Klepek?

And what's so wrong with him? Maybe I'm just not picky or something, but there's no one on the Giantbomb staff that I strongly dislike.

Also, your idea is horrible as far as I'm concerned. An Endurance Run is supposed to last for a while, otherwise there's not much of an endurance aspect to it. What you're talking about is better delegated to a Quick Look, though the games in those are not actually meant to be beaten.

Honestly, I'd most like to see an Endurance Run of a game that's more a cult classic and the staff haven't ever played before. Kind of like the games done thus far, they do those kind for a good reason.

Even if it was the dream team that is Vinny and Jeff, I wouldn't even be watching them play the game since A: it has no story and B: you are doing the same combo attack.

Not to mention that actually playing a beat 'em up for long periods of time can get super boring from the repetition, so even our hosts moral will drop causing them not to be entertaining.

I think a lot of the entertainment that comes from an ER is from them absorbing the story and meeting new characters.

Become a premium member. Vinny and Dave's Random PC Game feature is one of my favorite thing on the site, and it's pretty much exactly what you're asking for.

#13 Posted by Dagbiker (6978 posts) -

There also arnt enough short games for a daily endurance run. Also no. Also your Idea is bad.

Fuck you and your subtle insult to Patrick. Patrick is easily one of the best parts of this site, and you are an idiot if you think other wise.

#17 Edited by VisariLoyalist (3000 posts) -

not like this...

edit: Patt Sessler?! Are you serious... It's Matt Kessler. I'm now proceeding to reject you as a person.

#18 Posted by SSully (4315 posts) -

@Dagbiker: I definitely didn't see that coming!

#19 Posted by The_LMFAO_Guy (192 posts) -
I'm sticking by my idea because it's a good one. You can't stop me, I'm bulletproof!
 
@Video_Game_King:  
It's not about following the samething that you see in every ER, it's about quality. And That man's quality sucks.
 
@SSully
Well it seems like you and your defense force have bad taste. I hope your Klementia taste sour!  
 
@Landon:
 I don't believe you. If my wishes were to happen, you'd be there on day one getting naked and yelling "hooray!"

#24 Posted by JasonR86 (9723 posts) -

I think it would make more sense for a shorter game. Maybe 10-20 hour long episodes.

Wow, you really do have magic! 
 
You know what, fuck it, have it be a spin-off of the ER called what you named it. If a spin-off of TANG can happen - WU-TANG - then this can happen.

I disagree with literally everything you've so far said here, @The_LMFAO_Guy. Also, don't you dare start suggesting Endurance Runs already. It's been a week.

Also, flagging this for excessive badmouthing of Patrick because this topic you've created already seems more geared toward dissing Patrick and his fans than anything else.

Well it hasn't been a week for me as I didn't watch the ER after the first few minutes of the first episode. As I said, it was disappointing.
 
Opinions are opinions, cowboy. I don't like that guy so get use to it. And nobodies badmouthing me? HA! Isn't that hypocritical?  
#29 Posted by Pezen (1667 posts) -

I am starting to get why the staff is (or seems) tired of the ER nonsense from the community.

What does Jesus have to do with anything?

In the past this word "Jesus" appended to the end of a sentence or question was often used by Christians as a way of asking the higher power of their belief system to assist them during a time of great frustration or hardship. Using the name of Jesus Christ in such a manner is currently somewhat common in North America, certain parts of Europe and possibly Australia, this is most likely due to the predominantly Christian history of the countries. I believe Mr.Violence was just expressing his (or possibly her - but lets be serious) disdain for some of the opinions found in this discussion but it would be incorrect of us to assume that Mr.Violence is religious as many Christian practices have also become a cultural item.

How can you judge the entire ER by the first few minutes of the first episode? Me thinks that your hate for Patrick is a little much...

i think you might wanna use the words endurance run very carefully since this can tick of alot of people, even if your really not talking about it in the sense... fuck it i cant articulate it in a way that makes sense right now

and keep this in mind im not saying this to be an asshole but if you want more content there is chance that if you get what you want it will end up being quantity instead of quality.
just go back and watch some of the how to build a bomb or some of the old endurance runs there is 280+ episodes that will shut you up for a few months

#35 Posted by Gringus (67 posts) -

If you're going to rag on Patrick at least do so in a constructive way. Otherwise there's absolutely no point other than bloating your self worth, which really has to be minuscule if you have to resort to hating on people and in the end just makes you look like a dick.

Now your idea I like, but not as an endurance run. As others have pointed out, that would go against the purpose of an endurance run. I do think it would be cool to see a series that would be like endurance run in the fact that they would beat the game, but games that are very short.

#36 Posted by rjayb89 (7728 posts) -

Tetris would be perfect for this!

#37 Posted by MethodMan008 (820 posts) -

I don't think you understand what an endurance run is.

Also, how do you really feel about Patrick?

Honestly, it seems he is in a majority of quick looks and other features now a days.. If you cant stand Patrick there are plenty of other gaming sites out there.

#38 Posted by MordeaniisChaos (5730 posts) -

If it doesn't come on the side, I send it back.

Seriously, what a tool. Assholes alike you are why the Happy Hour died. "OH I DON'T LIKE THIS ONE BIT OF CONTENT so fuck it".

Also I don't think I'd enjoy that much, mostly just because the genre would get stale and boring about instantly. And why did you say daily if you meant weekly?

#39 Posted by HatKing (6104 posts) -

Patrick is a Jurassic Park fan. You make bad suggestions and half-assed insults toward people you don't really know.

Patrick wins.

He's all over a bunch of QLs, so I know enough. I don't like him.

These e-white knight fruitcakes fapping over Klepek are just pathetic, GTFO and go party with him at The Castro instead of having homo-erotic wet dreams about him.

@S0ndor: But they are made up of countries with a history of Christianity and that is clearly what he meant in that post.

I think you should be a little easier on Patrick. He may not be goofy lovable fun like some of the other staff members, but he's a man to you know, he goes pee pee standing up.

I have a zero-tolerance policy when it comes to people referring to continents as countries.
