Isn't this series just a stealth Endurance Run?

Posted by GioVANNI

That devil cried.

Edited by 42manZ

@sparkleen: I think the Endurance Run is an every day thing. This is a "when they feel like it" thing, which is fine by me.

Was that "Sign of Chastity" literally just a virgins uterus covered in crystal? that's pretty metal... I suppose.

How are you guys so damn fast? I wish I could render and upload shit that fast, jesus. I've got a 40 minute video I need to render out and compress down to under 2 GB and just the pass to take it to 20-ish is going to take three freakin' hours.

Devil Trigger?

Don't ever Devil Trigger. Doing so would make the game too easy and Brad is hardcore.

It continues!!!

@mordeaniischaos: If you haven't seen it yet, check out How to Make a TNT. I don't understand all the technical wizardry involved, but it sounds like they try to encode all their video on the fly, so it's basically ready to go on the site almost as soon as they're done recording.

Nah, they archive it in a much higher quality and upload it to a server which does the compression and puts it on the site automatically.

I can't wait for them to get to DMC in a few years :p

Hush, they don't need to know that!!

Also, Brad's description of red-eyed allergy Brad just sounds like he popped his own Devil Trigger. Also x2, the first 7 minutes of this are an amazing mess.

Heck yeah, @vinny. Grimm is pretty fantastic.

Also, keep in mind that Grimm's world goes off the idea that non-grimms and non-monster people's minds try to adjust/deny what they're seeing.

Posted by CJduke

Brad needs to take allergy medicine more often, he was cruising through the game.

Posted by sephirm87

Brad: I got a "B," After being away for some time.

Vinny: Welcome to my 11th Grade math class

Vinny is literally the best thing ever.

Keep up the good work guys, i am enjoying the Premo stuff.

Ugh. The underwater level was the worst.

I don't believe they are uploading raw footage though, they have some sort of process that works, either in real time or is run on a machine after the show, as I recall.

Regardless of how they do it, it's not something I can do without investing in a lot of hardware :p

So every 17-20 minutes streaming the streaming video function just eats shit and dies. Fix your shit, GB.

Edited by Draxyle

Never played a DMC before, but if you told me that there was an first-person underwater element to the game, I would have called you crazy.

It's not uncompressed of course. They have a 5GB limit per file for uploading to that server, which is a problem when they go over about 3 hours, maybe less. When that happens (Unprofessional Fridays: 02/01/13) they have to split the file and do uploading manually or they reencode it in the office to fit the upload limit. The whole process takes a looong time (that video appeared 3 days later - they propably tried both ways).

My guess is two hardware h.264 encoders. One portable and that box that's connected to a Mac.

3 hours at 4 Mbps (highest quality available on the site) is 5273 MB. Which would suggest that the file they send there is the same you get for download. Looks like that off-site encoder only makes 3 lower quality files.

Is this roughly correct @drewbert, @vinny ? Do you also archive at higher bitrates localy?

Story time with Brad and Vinny/ Bradley May Cry is an amazing feature and has been absent for far too long.

Giant Bomb is the best website.

It's time for another episode of Brad at Videogames!

Let's see if he's as much of a negative nancy this time.

Edited by beard_of_zeus

Nice job, Brad! Cooking through them levels!

I had actually forgotten about the underwater part in this game as well. I guess my mind blocked out that particular memory.

to an admin - first of these videos is posted under Devil May Cry franchise, whereas second and third are linked to the fist game.

Why do they always do this in a dark room?

Edited by Arrested_Developer

Ugh, this game is lame but this is the only GB video content on the site today!!!!!

Edited by Quarters

The underwater levels in DMC1 suck so bad. Unfortunately, they make an appearance in Lucia's DMC2 campaign, but at least Dante's spared.

Posted by CrashTanuki

I'm glad that they're getting back to the staffer-specific video series, though I'd love to see Vinny's Load Our Last Save series come back so he can finish Freedom Fighters.

Posted by bkbroiler

Holy shit that fight at 22:00. Never have I felt such triumph.

Posted by MattClassic

Oh my god, I completely forgot about the underwater sections in this game. What a weird thing.

Posted by Humanity

Great job Brad you handled those bosses like a pro. You should definitely dope up before playing more often!

Posted by NoelVeiga

So this series started because controversy regarding Brad's review of DMC and him wanting to find out about the original.

We have learned that the original wasn't that hard after all, that the camera is really broken and that we had all collectively agreed to forget that at one point it becomes a crappy six axis FPS.

I'd say mission accomplished. Totally worth it, too. That said, no reason to stop. He's burning through this and there are three more to go. Stealth ER needs to keep on going.

Posted by TheHakku

Loved the Indy reference, Vinny. Well done, Bradley!

Posted by JesusHammer

@noelveiga: It's a lot harder than DmC:Devil May Cry and the camera really isn't that bad if you've played any fixed camera game before. The underwater stuff is about 20 minutes total of the game and isn't really bad, just weird. DMC on Normal is like DmC on Dante Must Die except in DmC you can kill bosses in less than 10 hits on Dante Must Die mode.

Yeah. I really, really liked DmC and I'm a Devil May Cry fan. Everyone has their own opinion of course, but when I saw people saying it was too easy, I kind off figured allot of people were just bashing the game to bash it. DMC has never, ever, been a hard game. Everyone can finish it. It only gets difficult on higher difficulty levels. I guess people think it's 'cool' to be able to finish a game other people can't or don't want to.
