Brad: Quick Look Start to Death Time

Pull'n a Brad

A list of Brad's longest, quickest, and everything in between, "Start to Death" times during official Giant bomb video game Quick Looks (only!).

"Start to Death" is defined as the time elapsed between the start of the Quick Look, and Brad dying, regardless of the method.

Readers are reminded that, "it's tougher to play and talk at the same time, than you think."

Of course, this list is on-going and will likely change as Brad continues to do Quick Looks, but for now it should be comprehensive. To be fair, as well, there are a number of Quick Looks that Brad does not die in... but they are, of course, ignored.

Also, in the case of games with multiple Quick looks, the first Quick look, even if for a Demo, is the one that counts.

This is the original Quick Look Start to Death list, but it seems to have started a trend since it's inception.

Probably a bit of over-kill, but credit should be given where credit is due, right?

RJPelonia did go back to watch every Quicklook video to collect the data for his lists. So, you can find links to other GB members' STD's (unfortunate acronym isn't it?) on HIS LISTS PAGE.

List Retired

As of March 7th 2012. This list has been officially retired.

After setting a new record on his 100th QL Start to Death Record. Brad has been officially released of his curse... or at least the recording of it. This is partially because the list has become a little too large to easily manage, but mostly because the joke has, unfortunately, seemed to have played itself out.

Thank you, Brad, as they say, for the memories.

I think you forgot Catherine. Brad played a bit of that, right?

@Video_Game_King:  Not as far as I can tell... Pretty sure it's Vinny for the lion's share of that QL.
Posted by Video_Game_King
Really? I thought he took over near the end.

@Video_Game_King: I might be mistaken, so if you can find the point where they switch... i'd be happy to post it. But i gave it a watch and didn't catch it (if it exists)

Brad blows himself up in the Red Faction: Battlegrounds Quicklook at 7:04

EDIT:  Never mind, looks like you got it already.

Is it possible to add the Cargo Quick Look? While Brad's playing the entire time, he never dies. How does that even work?

Posted by Mustard

brad has escaped death a number of times already.

No death, not on the list.

New one for the list:

Crysis (XBLA): 18:18

After spending a good minute nervously slinking around in armor mode and spending most of the quicklook to this point in stealth mode, he decides to take the fight to the enemy, 3 of which had spotted him as he ducked around a corner. "Maybe I should just go balls out here." as he dashes back into combat.

*pop pop pop*

"Ugh, or I could just die."

Vinny: "You've gotta put armor on if you're gonna shoot all those guys."

I am very impressed with this list. Great detail and funny as hell.

Posted by Mustard

One more death, and this list get's the "Martin Luther would be Proud" quest!

Posted by Mustard

Quest unlocked!

Posted by SpaceGandhi

Should Brad's "death" in the UDraw marble-rolling mini game be added to this list? If so it occurred at 10:48 in the QL.

Awesome list!

Posted by Mustard

@SpaceGandhi: oooo, good catch. I watched this, but didn't really consider it at the time.

@Mustard: 22 seconds to Brad death in Nexius. NEW RECORD!!!

Posted by Sarumarine

It's a great list. And I admire how long you've kept up with it. Thanks for the inventory! Heh.

Posted by dodgyc

Brad just broke the record again today. 00:19 to death on the Hybrid Beta Quick Look...

Edited by HatKing

Wait. Why the fuck is Crysis 2 on this list? Brad isn't even controlling that Quick Look.

EDIT: Never mind. /duh

Posted by cooljammer00

The Crysis 2 death is not 38 seconds into the video...there really should be a timestamp.

Posted by Mustard

@cooljammer00: It is... it was for the demo, recorded earlier.

Posted by HighPriest

Wow, I can't believe it's been a full year since this list reached completion.

So many memories.

Edited by gbrading

Time to add Alien Spidy to this list... 56 seconds. Makes it into the Top 5.

Edit: Whoops, didn't read about the list retiring. :(
