Loving it but they broke the only rule of the ER and that is there is only one save allowed. What you do you commit to.

@Twinblade34: You are not the only one i think they are funny as shit

This is rad.

And today is the day I close the comments and don't look back. You people complaining are fucking ridiculous.

yup

Edited by Cretaceous_Bob

I do not know why people are complaining. I like the Jeff/Vinny team a lot, but ERs are all about the commentary and Ryan and Patrick both do good commentary. Done.

Also, that Brog shit slayed me. This naming convention is the best.

we need persona 5....

I'll never stop being amazed at people actually thinking a Persona 5 Endurance Run is going to happen eventually. Like seriously. What.

It depends if Giantbomb likes money or not.

Why did i not know you could close the comments before!!! Even if you can just not look at them there's always the 2-3 on top that show anyway!

"I grow so tired of the gossip around here."

I love how sexist they made that comment in the DS version. Something like, "If there's one thing that will never change, it's women and their gossip!"

DAMN WOMEN AND THEIR GOSSIP, WISH THEY'D JUST FOCUS ON MAKING ME SANDWICHES

It is not a spoiler at all though.

Depends on what you qualify as a spoiler. I qualify it as "anything that happends in the future that hasn't been aluded to yet". I dislike it more because it sets a bad precedent, than for what it actually was in this case.

@MasturbatingestBear said:

Patrick clearly isn't remembering too much.

Yeah I said as much in my comment so...I agree, I guess? Some people seem to interpret it as him deliberately playing dumb, but I wonder how many of these people can remember the details of a game they played once, over 10 years ago.

@MasturbatingestBear said:

Also Brog is awesome. Hopefully they call Robo, Brobo.

I thought the same thing, that would be excellent. That or Brobot, "Bro bot" sounds pretty good.

I wanted to chime in and say I'm enjoying this. Fuck the haters.

Posted by StalkingTurnip

Brono, do you like these comments?

*Brono shakes head no*

This Endurance Run is great, guys! I've watched it on my lunch two days in a row now. I don't know why people are complaining. Fellas, these guys don't have to do these Endurance Runs. If you've got a problem with it, then don't watch. Some of us here actually want to enjoy it.

we need a dubstep remix of that battle theme...

Continue the great work guys, I love this!

Haters gunna hate.

Saying "Haters gonna hate" should automatically disqualify anyone from being taken seriously for the rest of their lives.

Posted by Fjordson

Team VJ is starting soon, right? Right?!?

Barokai here is clearly a hater and as we all know he is going to hate.

Posted by N7

There can only be one save during an Endurance Run. You've ruined it all Ryan! You've ruined everything!!!

Posted by MangyForestCat

@Fjordson: I doubt it Bjordson but it sure would be cool. I think next ER will have Team VJ back.

Posted by Noisician

Episode 2 was great. 3 stars.

Tomorrow in Fantasy Land: Team VJ start their epic Dark Souls Endurance Run!

I'm sorry, but I just don't see the potential in this ER.

With Persona 4 and Deadly Premonition, there were countless, unexpected moments that were crazy, epic, and sometimes fucking hilarious. I just don't see moments like that happening in an SNES game.

Also, because this is a well known game, that both Ryan and Patrick have played... it just... takes away the excitement of not knowing what you guys are getting yourselves into, which is what made the other ERs amazing. (Besides Vinny)

I'll stilll give this a chance, though.

i think a frog man jumping out of the ceiling a killing dudes is quirky unexpected

Not when you have seen it before. This has good commentary but game just seems to be wrong for ER. It is popular, well made game but it is linear and and most of us have probably played it, thanks to its multiple releases.

Posted by FoolishChaos

Fuck the haters.

But I'm not sure I agree with this naming convention. Frog is a stupid crazy enough name as it is!

Posted by Oldirtybearon

Man. I've never played JRPGs because I don't have the patience for them. Too much standing around and not enough interaction between player and gameplay. That said, I love his ER. Creepy Uncle Klepek talking about dark passages and playing with frogs is a bizarre highlight for me.

Posted by fantasyfreak07

Oh hey Brog, sweet.

@Canteu said:

Did i just hear him say that this game has "shitty graphics"?

I threw up in my mouth a little.

He was talking about the banners that say "Fire" or "Lightning" on the character screens.

Which are pretty shitty

Multiple save slots!? Blasphemy!

This.

Posted by carlfoster91

@Cyrisaurus: I kind of agree with you. I think Dark Souls would have been a better choice, assuming at least on of the players never played it before but I'll give Brono Trigger a try for sure. But yea, such a well known game that its not as spontaneous and weird. Plus no V.A. in a story heavy game is killing me.

Posted by Benjamimmy

Nice work guys! People complain about the Endurance Run, but just be grateful you're getting one really. I wasn't sure at first, but for me, it's more content on the site that I can watch and I'm happy to do so whilst also finding it entertaining, especially for someone who didn't play Chrono Trigger back in the day. Keep it up Team R.P!

Posted by Nux

Yet another good episode. I look foward to watching more.

Posted by Lionheart377

I'm almost embarrassed to say it, but I've never played this game. I feel like as a JRPG enthusiast, I'm almost required to see what it's all about. Thanks for doing this Endurance Run - I'll now be able to see the game in all its glory and hear some great commentary! Oh, and glad Patrick's on there - been a fan since his G4 days.

Karate Batgoat is the first shirt I'm going to design for this Endurance Run!

Posted by Seraphim84

I knew I was gonna get all twisted inside when the guys would not play the game in exactly the way I've played it the dozen+ times I've done so. But that won't stop me from watching someone play all the way through it all over again.

The Science Hammer is one of the ultimate weapons.

Can't get past patrick, the game isn't very exciting either.

DP ER will never be topped

Ryan has only played a few hours of Chrono Trigger before this run.

When I was little, I thought Frog's fist pump was him bringing up a huge popsicle. Makes him seem 20x friendlier that way.

Posted by Cubic

Why does the Relic Hunter theme play when the frog jumps down? Is he secretly Tia Carrere?

Edited by Beaudacious

I've never complained about content, but Chronno Trigger really was a poor choice guys. I understand the thought behind it, and it was probably a great idea on paper. But its just not cutting it in reality, so I'm out for the count. The rest of you enjoy your endurance run. (Maybe Deadly Premonition just set the bar too high?)

Edit: Commentary also feels extremely forced due to lack of on screen action.(opinion, not fact)

Posted by Scratch

Oh man he used the second save slot. Already making mistakes here.

Never, because it's a Patrick meme!

I guess the only way for me to really enjoy this is to make it my own RPG:

Batrick and Bryan have joined your party.

You yelled 10 "Shut Up Klepek!"s: Your Science Hammer now does 10 HP damage. Next level up: 15 SUKs.

This installment was spoiled in the last episode's comments: You lose 5 MP.

The ER was pre-recorded and might already be completed thereby defeating its episodic presentation and multiple episodes seem to have been recorded in one sitting: Critical hit.

Respond to "What if I don't want to buy anything from that guy?" with "Then don't talk to him asshole!": Revive.

You gained 26 EXP. Level up! You are now Friends with the Dragon (Level 2).

Next Level: Saucepan Man (63 EXP).

I'm working on the table-top version...

Never BlKusanagi because they already have SCIENCE t-shirts at thinkgeek.com and GiantBomb is much more original than that...
