Assuming they get the normal ending this could very well be the last week we get to watch Jeff 'n Vinny play P4. How do you guys feel about that? Sad? Happy? Relieved? 
 
Also a new ED is probably impending. You guys got any ideas what it might be? Would you guys prefer a new or bigger team, or Jeff and Vinny again? 
 
DISCUSS. NOW.

There probably won't be a new ER for a while, they said as much in the PAX bombcast.

#3 Posted by Dany (8018 posts) -

They are going to get the true ending, not an if they can do it. It is just a matter how 'dumb' will they act to pretend they got the true ending.

#4 Posted by Diamond (8678 posts) -

You don't think they're going to go for the true true ending?

#5 Posted by TheMustacheHero (6649 posts) -

Yep, looks like it...They said there would be a long break in between starting a new endurance run and this one ending...

#6 Edited by Fallen189 (5298 posts) -

I hope it is. So people will finally talk about something else.
 
Furthermore, why do people seem to assume they're going to do another one?

They said that there would be a break before they would do the next endurance run..Therefore, whatever game it is, there will most likely be another endurance run. Besides, what else are they going to replace the ER with? That's like 90 hours worth of content they have to make up if they decide to drop the ERs.

It aint over till its over folks.

It will NEVER! end. They will finish and then miss doing it, so they start New Game+, then finally after doing Yukkio's castle again they'll get tried of the game and stop the ER.

Because it's an easy way to generate lots of content and it has been stated that the ER is Giant Bomb's most popular feature. Not to mention that Vinny and Jeff seem to genuinely have a lot of fun doing it. So I think it's pretty safe that they will eventually do another one.
#11 Posted by ajamafalous (12308 posts) -

I assume they'll go for the true ending. And, as has been mentioned, they said they'd take a (well deserved) break before starting a new ER on the PAX Bombcast.

I see them taking a break during the holiday season and early 2010 and using that free time to review the glut of games and whatnot
#13 Posted by Gunner612 (4390 posts) -

What could they possibly do an endurance run on next? there arent too many games that are as long as persona 4 that have come out recently.

#14 Posted by FrankCanada97 (4187 posts) -

It might end on episode 150. I see Episode 150 as the Christmas Event, then going on to the end cinematic and rolling the credits to music.

#15 Posted by chandoo (260 posts) -
@Gunner: Honestly the best solution would be an open-poll.
#16 Posted by amino (170 posts) -
@FrankCanada97: 
 
I bet it ends on episode 149.This week should be the last.
#17 Posted by gakon (2008 posts) -

I wonder if cost plays a factor in it.  Ninety hours is a lot of video content to host.  Maybe they want to cool down on the daily, often lengthy video feature for a while.

#18 Posted by Hailinel (25787 posts) -

I think that they'll end up going for the true ending.  On the other hand, the fight against the normal ending final boss really is just around the corner, but I don't know if they'll be able to take it out on the first try.  It has a really nasty attack that is pretty much a guaranteed instant kill if you aren't guarding.

#19 Posted by p4ddym1607 (1061 posts) -

To be honest I was never too sure what Endurance Run was about until recently.

#20 Posted by D_W (1360 posts) -

I think it'll be hard to find another game that lives up to Persona 4 in wackiness and interesting story. I wouldn't be surprised if they went for another Altus game or even just waited for Persona 5. But I'm guessing we'll be seeing at least a 6 month wait inbetween regardless.

I would like to see a Mass Effect ER

If they somehow get to the true ending; this is what exactly happened.

I disagree.  They should do whatever game they want to do next, the fans should not have any say in it.  That's how it happened with Perosna 4 and MxO and that's how it should continue.

You mean the April Fool's list that has some middleware for rendering trees quickly and in large numbers as it's top candidate?
 
I assume at this point they're pretty much destined to go for the true ending and will have been told to look for it, so it's probably going to keep going past 150. They definitely could use a break after that though, Christmas is gonna be busy as ever, plus it'll be hard to find a game with as much charm and length as P4.
#24 Posted by Griddler (3374 posts) -
@FlipperDesert: yes that one
#25 Posted by trophyhunter (6040 posts) -

nahh last month really

#26 Posted by Vect (210 posts) -

Well, it's a great run. Hope that they try something equally interesting as Persona 4.

#28 Posted by ryanwho (12012 posts) -

I think they're tired of the game, and they already read that the normal ending is better, so they'll go for the ending that ends it quicker. It would suck if they succumbed to the whims of the response whiners, that would just validated them.@FluxWaveZ said:

I agree. Im not at all interested in watching people play a game they're not enjoying because a bunch of retarded Kingdom hearts fans mobbed the voting polls. Not interested in Jeff sighing deeply for 30 minutes at a time. No thanks.
#29 Posted by GHT (172 posts) -

I think they should play persona 3 portable.
 
that should give atlus time to make persona 5.
 
that's right, only persona games.

#30 Posted by chandoo (260 posts) -

The reason i'm suggesting an open poll is because the P4 endurance run was something unexpected, but now everyone knows there's going to be another one, and no matter what game they choose they're going to piss off a certain number of people anyway for not choosing a game of their liking.
 
So the most feasable thing is to either have a poll, or those guys completely shun the forums and do what they please.

I predict the latter.
 
No matter what happens, people are going to be pissed, so it will be easier for them to just discuss it amongst themselves and do what they want. That's what happened with this Endurance Run and look at the result.

brad and ryan play a Team ICO game. you heard it here first!

#33 Posted by chandoo (260 posts) -

Naah, Endurance run just screams for a lengthy RPG, both Ico and Shadow are very small games.

They should do what they please.  Any site with a big enough audience will piss off people no matter what they do.  If they make a review for a game that a lot of people don't agree with, many will be frustrated and some will not care or agree.  The contrary also applies.  Imagine if fans decided on every major decision for a video gaming based website; that site would not last long.  I'm sure if they had done a previous ER before Persona 4, and after that ER they chose Persona 4 many people would have been annoyed and would have wondered why the hell they chose that type of game.
#35 Posted by PenguinDust (12730 posts) -

They're going to take a break for a while, maybe a month or so, then they'll play something that they are interested in and that they think would make a good ER.  People will watch and the game will sell well for a while creating all new fans to the franchise.  
 
I still want the mini-ER of Incredible Crisis to happen.

#36 Posted by Carlos1408 (1571 posts) -

It was said in the PAX bombcast that they'd take a break for a while before doing another ED. When they do start a new one it would be cool if it was like Brad and Ryan, of course I'd still love it if it stayed as Jeff and Vinny, but it would be an interesting change. :D

#37 Posted by ShaneDev (1702 posts) -

I hope they do something else i was never fond of the ER

This is what I think, too.  As soon as this wraps up in a week (and I think they'll be done next Friday if they go for the true ending, which they will), they'll call it a day until January or so and then spring the next Endurance Run on us in the lull period before all the early 2010 stuff comes out (and I'm going to bet it won't be Persona PSP since I think that will just get a review).  It would be cool if they did some a short Endurance Run in between of something like Incredible Crisis, though. :)
#39 Posted by skippyscissors (393 posts) -

Whatever they play, I will watch. And that's all that matters.

#40 Posted by endaround (2233 posts) -

The problem is that there are very few games that haev P4's blend of non-combat and combat.  Most JRPGs follow the Town--->Dungeon--->Cutscene--->Boss Battle--->New Town format.  That can make for boring video.  Action games don't leave much time for any real discussion.  SRPGs are way too grindy.  Baldur's Gate and the first two Fallouts wuld work except the game has to come from a publisher who won't issue a C&D letter after one week and Interplay is a rights holder and not much else right now.

#41 Posted by Zabant (1326 posts) -

don't look for a new ED until next year.
 
i'm guessing one endurance run a year.

#42 Posted by chandoo (260 posts) -

How's about Endurance Run marathon, playing through FF1-12 in anticipation for 13 ? :p

#43 Posted by Bartman3010 (482 posts) -

I still nominate Grim Fandango.

#44 Posted by Kohe321 (3567 posts) -

They deserve the break, and it gives them time to find a new game worthy of the ER stamp. I can't wait to see what the next one is, whenever they decide to start again.

#45 Posted by Creamypies (4156 posts) -
@ShaneDev: Well that ain't gonna happen. The ER is the most popular thing on the site, they can hardly abandon it after one game.
#46 Posted by ShaneDev (1702 posts) -
@creamypies:  I mean i hope they do someting else before they go back to another ER 
#47 Edited by Bartman3010 (482 posts) -

Actually, would it be wrong of me to suggest Sonic Adventure? It'd be funny to see the person playing just lose their shit when something doesnt work right. Plus with Sonic Adventure, anything can and will go wrong.
 
Also, bad acting and storytelling! Its a fantastic formula!
 
Or not...
 
Edit: I changed my mind. Shenmue should be top candidate.

#48 Posted by Drebin_893 (2991 posts) -

This won't be the last week of the Endurance Run.

#49 Posted by Shiftshaper (334 posts) -

Oh come on. how obvious is it by now that they want to end this thing at 150? Friday's gonna be the day.
#50 Posted by CitizenKane (10677 posts) -

I'll wait until it actually ends to start wondering how I feel about it.
 
They said that there won't be another Endurance Run for a while, and THAT makes me sad.  :(
