Ryan, you've got to stop rushing Brad through the game. 
 
How are we supposed to enjoy all the weird quirkiness if you two can't sit around for a few minutes and read random descriptions?

You can watch VeeJay for that. I rather enjoy seeing the complete disinterest Brad and Ryan show towards the game.

I  think Brad really likes this game.

This game is utterly insane and nothing makes the slightest bit of sense (especially the fortunetelling coffee). "Please, just call me by my name. It's what everyone calls me." 
 
Chain-smoking, coffee obsessed, mental split-personality protagonist established? Check.

My feeling's exactly.   
 
If you go in with a bad mood it doesn't make for good viewing. 
 
Take a note from Ryan Brad;)

Come on Ryan and Brad, explore more, you keep skipping stuff.
 
And remember, mock everything.

Twin Peaks? pffft, Twin Endurance Runs!...yeah i got nothing, but still!
 
i love watching both of these. But yeah, i do appreciate BR's quicker pace, but they do keep missing small things, hopefully this will create a big difference in versions depending on how this game plays out.

Slowly, but surely, we will begin to see Brad lose his mind.  He will begin to rave about this game, and how brilliant and amazing it is.  This will end with him giving the game a 6/5 rating, and then leaving Giantbomb to create a website devoted entirely to him stalking the game's creator in hopes of a sequel.  Ryan will then start to come to work in a suit and tie everyday and insist that people call him "York...that's what everyone calls me." as he flashes a fake badge that he made himself every few minutes.  Thus is the power of Deadly Premonition's pure insanity.  God help us all.

Old news, brah.  What else did you think the FK in the coffee meant?
Posted by glitznglam_style

Deadly Premonition is so odd and quirky. Love it. Swery 65 is the next Suda 51. This game reminds me so much of Suda's older games like Michigan and Flower, Sun and Rain.

Geez Brad. You could be a little more excited to play this game. Embrace the madness, don't fight it!

I like brad, but he has the least patience of anyone in t he GB crew and when he doesnt like games he really hates on them. Just check out the shenmue quicklook and some of the other DC retrospective videos. He was really hating on shenmue, saying that he was glad that it was terrible because for years he thought he had been missing out by not playing it back in the day. You can tell he feel physically uncomfortable playing a game he feels is bad for extended periods of time.

This game is one giant wtf.

I enjoy seeing the commentary similarities between the two ERs.

Posted by Tuffty

I've just looked into my coffee...
 
...And I predict this ER is going to be awesome.

TEAM BR 
Where you at?

Edited by Spiritof

Deputy Emily Wyatt creepily resembles Naomi Watts. Maybe on 'Mulholland Drive' purpose?
 
EDIT: I was also considering buying this game, until I watched the first ER ep. Then I watched the second, with the breath holding zombie, the weird old lady, and the trippy soundtrack. Now I'm back to wanting to buy it again.

Posted by antivanti

Is it just me or does the music when they're at the table sound a lot like some tune from Super Mario World just a bit slower? 

Posted by RNiemeijer

So this really is happening, man

Posted by Lelcar

Yeah, Brad does need to lighten up a bit. Team VJ's episode 2 was so good, but this one... not so much. I just hope team BR gets more humorous and less negative in future episodes. I'm sure they'll be talking about both their experiences with Deadly Premonition on tonight's Bombcast though.

DUDE! I totally see the F K!

Posted by ZmillA

yeah im DEFINITELY sticking with team jeff and vinny

Posted by PseudoCynic

As far as I can tell the player is Zach and when York is holding his head he's talking to you, but that's my impression only a few hours into the game.

QQ run

Posted by glitznglam_style

I agree. The B-R team is far too negative. V-J is winning so far.
Posted by Sanj

I understand Brad's feelings. This game sucks, it's hard to be excited for a game that sucks.
Posted by Jayzilla

I feel for Brad. Just watching these is hard, even after 5 minutes. Having to play through that convoluted mess, and then take comments like some of you are posting would lead me to acts of violence. If this game were alcohol, it would be Gin. We all know how bad Gin is.

Any game where you can shave gets an A+ in my book.

@Ham08:  With what's coming up in the game, stick with it.
 
The funnys will  being soons :)
Posted by HatKing

Something about that whole scene with Polly really worked.  I am getting a weird sort of "The Shining" vibe from this game.  I might have to buy this.

@Jayzilla:  Having already seen some of the early footage of this game without any commentary, I can tell you that the negativity is probably why you're not enjoying this. If Brad wasn't so dismissive about the game it would make for a better endurance run. First time I saw the hotel cutscene I was laughing my head off but seeing it here  just made me feel uncomfortable due to the tense atmosphere and Brad's comments.

 I love this stuff. I was about to leave for class and I saw that this was up... f[ee]p class.    

Posted by TurboMan

Much better than R&B's first episode... wish Brad would stop making "this game is bad" jokes, we get it, just accept it for what it is and have fun with it. 
 
Can someone please direct me to an mp3 of the whistly music at the end? That was perfect.

Posted by thejamster

its great how he wakes up and already has a cigarette and lighter in his hands 

Posted by BRINKTheMovieMyFavoriteMovie

You guys are freaking out way too much about Brad's attitude about the game. It's a fucking shitty game, of course you're going to point out when it's bad (which is often). Why are you so defensive of it anyway? Do you have some personal investment in its success?

Posted by ch3burashka

I am interested to see whether or not these two ER's will have any effect on the sales of DP. Persona 4 was an excellent game which didn't need more promotion to sell - Deadly Premonition, on the other hand, could benefit.

Posted by Hairydutchman

I'm loving both ERuns, but Brad shouldnt be so negative. Enjoy it man!

Problem: Deadly Premonition is the greatest game of the generation, which means your premise is false.
Posted by Artanas

Brad is fine, you guys complain too much. Anyway, what's up with York never opening up his badge case, just shows the cover.  Hilarious.

Posted by JackSukeru

I gotta say I enjoy seeing the difference in play styles for the 2 ERs.

@Ham08: Oh man it's the exact opposite for me. This game is so goddamn terrible that it's actually fun to watch. It could also be a work of genius. Who knows though.

@Zaccheus: I'm not saying anything about the quality of the game in this comment, but Jim Sterling is a forum troll masquerading as a journalist.

I agree with brad, this game sucks.

No, it's just his negativity makes these less fun to watch, whereas Vinnie and Jeff's so far have been much more fun. Brad gives the impression that he seriously does not want to be playing this, and it shows, Vinnie and Jeff (and Ryan) have a much more so bad it's good vibe about them. Come on Brad, have some fun, don't take it so seriously.

OH YEA!!!

Posted by mrcraggle

Is this game some reverse engineered RE? So many things looks like it. The text and button icrons, the end of level progress, the tank like controls and the foot planted shooting.

Posted by HistoryInRust

I love the Brad and Ryan segments, not gonna lie.
