Also from what I've seen while playing this is that the lockon is kinda wonky, I've played through part of day 1 after the prologue & found that by not using the lockon it seems to work easier on getting headshots. Try out the hotel desk or convenience store for fishing gear & remember that the red missions advance the story but you have time to get to them.   
 
Admittedly after playing through as much as I've done on the game, it has it's own brand of quirky endearing charm to it & recommended.

i loved the polly scene. it seems almost like the weird sound levels and overload of information is on purpose, like it's purposely weird and aimless. I prefer to think of it that way lol

Edited by D34dM4n

so twin peaks it hurts. from the scenery to the music to the Cooper nature of York/Zack and the TERRIBLE look of everyone. still its kinda awesome. does anyone else think the whistling music in the cafeteria sound kind of like Super Mario music?

Posted by EndlessMike

What's up with the music at the hotel with the old lady? Sounded like Super Mario World.

Kind of hope Brad gets over the graphics and starts to warm up to this wonderful game. A LOT of sarcasm coming from him thus far.

No, it's because what people like about the endurance run is that it's fun. It's like MS3K in that you take the bad parts of a game and poke fun of it. Brad just isn't giving it a chance and his commentary is just him being a downer. 30 minutes is hardly enough time to call it shitty. Graphics aren't everything, and I just wish Brad would just try and stay open minded.

I literally lol'd after he smiled at around 24:55 in the ER-02.  Hilarious...

I thought of it like that also. The music got louder at the perfect moments, too much so for it to be coincidnce. The developers know what they are doing and I love every second of it. Love this game.

I must admit, I don't understand the praise for this game. Weirdness is no substitute for quality. How is Brad wrong for knocking it? I'm not defending him, I just don't understand the constant stream of people defending the game. Anybody who says the game is "good" or "well made" clearly does not play enough games. Even as a video game, it's hardly unique - the only thing it has going for it is the fact that it's mind-blowingly bizarre and messed up. Even beyond my personal preferences, I feel like I can justly say that Deadly Premonition is awful.

The trick is starting with BR and then watching VJ. That way it gets better instead of worse.

Brad is better at the game than Vinny but this game sucks.... CAN'T WAIT FOR MORE ENDURANCE RUN

No he is giving it a chance, it's just pretty obvious you and some other people are biased in favor of the game for some bizarre reason, which is hilarious because you people have picked this horrible game of all the games out there to protect like it was your defenseless child or something. And if you think graphics are the only problem with the game.........um.

Come on, Brad, you're in entirely the wrong mindset. This isn't a Quick Look where you're forced to play a shitty game for twenty minutes and then forget about it forever, you're going to be playing this entire shitty game. So try to have some fun with it, eh?

Posted by Sarumarine

I wasn't sure about this game until the hotel scenes. Now I'm totally on board. This game is the best kind of crazy.

The point of these videos is for them to be entertaining, and BR went into this game full well knowing what they had to do. One could argue that they are just meant for the players to "endure" because it's the "endurance run", but by that logic they can just endure the game silently, and then nobody would watch it because it's boring. They make it into a video for Giantbomb fans for a reason, and that's for it to be entertaining. For some, I'm sure it's entertaining to see Brad kill himself to continue playing this game, but for most, it seems, it's annoying.

Man, "BE NICE BRAD" comments are about a hundred times more annoying than Brad's actual commentary. If the game is so good, then they should eventually reach that point where the game is amazing, right? So, the negative comments will stop then. He's playing the game like anyone else would. You people already know what it is that is so great about the game.
 
He even said at the end, "I'm beginning to think this could be the work of a post-modern genius". So, just shut up, wait, and let them play the damn game.
 
 
I can't believe the Endurance Run complainers are already out in full force in episode 2.

I assure you  we're not complaining because of some personal investment in the game.
 
Most people are complaining because its incredibly obnoxious to keep hearing someone repeat the same joke 9 time in a single video. Even though I like this game, I can totally see where Brad is coming from when he says he dislikes it.  Its  just......dude, we get it.
 
Besides he said the game sucked like.....5 seconds into the first video, and he admitted he had didn't know anything about it. I guess that part does annoy me. But for the most part is just about the repetitiveness.

Brad = Mr. Negative. haha

Posted by Jrinswand

I'm absolutely in agreement with Brad about this game being absolutely fucking terrible, but that doesn't make listening to his endless bitching any easier. It's not even that he's being sarcastic, though he is doing that as well. He is just bitching.
 
I've gotta say, though, that I don't understand why everybody wanted them to do an Endurance Run of a terrible game in the first place. Persona 4 is at least a great game. I'd much rather watch them play a great game for 40+ hours (80+ if you watch both ERs) than one that sucks.

Indeed.  David Lynch as well for them so blatantly stealing from TWIN PEAKS, the greatest show ever made.
 
Well... the first season is, at least.
 
Actually, watching this terrible game almost makes me want to go back and pop TWIN PEAKS in again. It's been a few years since I watched it.

The contrast between VJ and BR is showing.
 
The ER to me is a VJ product. It's sort of like if Jeff started doing TANG with Ryan. Meh.
 
Brad and Ryan are simply not fun to listen to. The heavy negativity and general disinterest from Brad is killing it for me.

this is something of extreme beauty..

Edited by RoadCrewWorker

Guys, everybody give Brad a fucking break, he just suffered through FF13 and still has shell shock. Every cutscene triggers a PTSD flashback for him.

No wonder he has a low tolerance for crap right now. (It's still a bit sad to hear the pain in his every sigh.)


Then again some people enjoy seeing the player suffer, so i guess different folks different strokes.

Brad and Ryan won't last much longer.

Posted by lolak47

brad's  constant moaning and bitching is annoying, i know its not a very good game but just play for fun,
the others seem to be giving it a chance and finding it amusing.

The game is awful, but it's so obvious to the viewer that it really doesn't need to be mentioned more then once or twice. The game is has some good qualities (quirky protagonist) and funny cut scenes. Persona 4's game play wasn't great either, so just learn to deal with it D:

Brad gives the impression that he seriously does not want to be playing this

I don't think that's merely an impression. If his whining continues through the next few episodes, they should throw him out and go for VJR. Ryan can draw from his Twin Peaks knowledge, at least. There is no rule saying it should be two people, right?

Ryan: "A first aid kit, good. Unfortunately, I don't think you can use that when a guy AXES YOU TO DEATH."

Bitching about somebody bitching. Give Brad a break, the game is terrible and if you dont want to watch it you dont have to. I personally loved this episode and I love the fact they are doing an ER of this game, it was hilarious and I plan on watching the next episode tomorrow.
Posted by Jon93

Yo Brad, we get it you don't like the game. Please stop letting us know every other sentence.

Posted by Karkarov

I enjoy the contract.  the VJ run is obviously going from more of a story based, RPG gamer type of mindset where as BR is more about the twitch gamer type of play where you just want to find the next thing to shoot.  It sucks the gameplay looks so dicey because the story at least at this point seems to have a decent japanese horror vibe to it.
 
Either way Brad is fine, it isnt like he is putting a gun to your head and saying watch it or die.  If you don't like what he has to say during the run then just don't watch it.

Posted by nail1080

I love Brad's view on this game...do you know why? Because he's not a robot and like all the GB guys he offers his own unique perspective on things and a variety in perspectives is a great thing especially since it's only 4 guys you want to keep things as diverse and fresh as possible. And for the dudes hating on Brad, well you can just watch the VJ run...no big deal.... but don't be so harsh on the guy for speaking his mind please because we love his mind and he is a legend.

Edited by BirthWild

I think this game is great, and I'm liking brad and ryan. 
 
keep truckin guys. 
 
PLAY THE GAME AND WE WILL ALL WIN!
 
although I agree it is a little annoying to constantly hear brad excited for the endurance run to be over. It was nice once, he's probably not even joking. baaaaw.

Posted by Tuggah

I must be in the minority, because I am loving Brad's negativity.

Yeah, I keep thinking that a couple days from now there will only be VJ.
Edited by PirateNeal

I dont know what people are talking about, but i completely  love the fact that Brad is being forced to play a game he hates. Its such a differnt pace from VJ's run, and im sure Brad will have will somewhat of a change of heart when the story gets completely  ridicules; Even if he does not I'm sure i will be equally  amused. Ryan and Jeff are both great as well, i like how they sometimes point out the same things and make somewhat similar jokes(friends for so long i guess).  so for every one bitching about Brad's dislike of the game STFU!

Lol, people hating on Brad, great.
