Jeff Gerstmann's Persona 4 Cell Phone Noise

#1 Edited by Qodot (105 posts) -

I remember seeing a video - I'm fairly sure it was a Quick Look, and if not, I'm almost certain it was a Thursday Night Throwdown - where Jeff and someone else (Ryan?) were sitting on the couch in black and white. At some point, Jeff's cell phone rang with some sort of sound from Persona 4. Jeff commented that he had set his timer for something and he needed to go do something. He left, and I believe he was replaced by someone else (Vinny? Or perhaps Vinny was there, and Jeff was replaced by Ryan?).

It may have had something to do with his car - I want to say he needed to put more quarters in a parking meter, but that seems kind of iffy.
It may have been Reach Out to the Truth, or perhaps Alone (the theme that plays at home starting around November), though I'm not too sure on this part. It might have been the "Pi pi pi pi pi!" ringtone, but that doesn't feel right. 
 
I believe that it was a video which was posted somewhere in the months of February to May. I'm more sure that it was somewhere from January up to now. 
 
Does anyone remember what video this was? 
 
 
EDIT: It has been found! http://www.justin.tv/giantbomb/b/282244513 at 27:20. Glory to Animathias!

I remember that and I'm pretty sure it was an endurance run episode and Jeff had to move his car and Ryan took his place for a bit.  May be wrong though.  No clue which episode even if it was the Endurance Run.

I remember this episode. It was none of the ones posted in here; it was the Junes theme from the soundtrack.

That scene sounds like the Nuts and Bolts TNT. Where Jeff leaves and VInny comes in for a few minutes.

I'm not sure about this. I'm almost certain it was a black and white video of Jeff sitting on a couch with someone else, and the ER just shows the TV screen...

I'll check that out. Thanks a bunch!

@Qodot:  I must be thinking of something else then.

I don't know what you're talking about but I do have these soundbites from the game.

Oh man. That Chie one is great. Always makes me wonder what made the voice actress think that sounded normal. She says it in a way like...she's pointing at something.

Yeah that sounds right to me.

@xobballox: I think you're thinking of the Deadly Premonition ER when Vinny was driving the car around in the race event and Jeff needed to go move his car, so Ryan sat in, but wouldn't look at the screen.

I only watched the DP ER once.
That sounds really, really close. I'll go take a look... does anyone know the episode? It was pretty early on, right?

Unfortunately not. Happens about 6:30 into this video, and no Persona noise:

I know what your talking about because Jeff totally had a ring tone from Persona 4 and had to leave but I can't name it.

Urgh. I'll check out that DiRT 3 TNT, I suppose.
#23 Posted by Qodot (105 posts) -

A quick skim through the DiRT 3 TNT seems to indicate that Ryan and Will Smith are the only ones in the TNT. Darn...
  
Anyone have any other ideas as to where this is from? 

If not, I guess I might just brute force skim all the Quick Looks or something like that. I'll keep you guys updated.

I thought it was from a Bombcast. Don't remember which episode at all, though.

#25 Posted by Getz (2986 posts) -

hahaha, at this point you guys are trying hard just for closure's sake. When you think about it, is it worth checking every single video to find?

To be fair, is there any way of saying 'Aha. Is this our chance?' in a natural fashion? 
Actually, is there any natural way of saying 'Aha' generally.

This is how I remember it as well.
#28 Posted by Qodot (105 posts) -
 I've mostly eliminated all of the Thursday Night Throwdowns on the archive page by skimming through them or based on other factors (e.g. Jeff is not listed as being on the couch). 
 
I'll start looking through Quick Looks for likely candidates.

I don't listen to Bombcasts very much, so I don't think it was from one of them...

Yes it is. MY LIFE FOR JEFF'S PERSONA RINGTONE!

Found it. It was during the Game Room "Happy Birthday" hour before the Crysis 2 TNT. I loaded it up when I got home from work to have something on while eating, and when his alarm went off I thought immediately of this thread. :D

It's at 27:20.

Edit: Thought I should add that I have this same exact one and most of the other songs from the soundtrack edited into ring tones (the ones I think lend themselves well to a short clip.) If anyone wants a copy, just PM me.

Yes.
 
And guys, it was in the prelude where he played weird arcade games for half an hour before TNT.

No clue, but I would like to see this now. (I think we just made some sort of meme.)

Indeed. My insatiable desire to watch a grown man play the worst games ever has finally paid off.

QFT. Animathias and Mutha3 will both go down in history. I have no clue how that will happen, but I would like to see it now.
