Wouldn't have been so bad if they remembered to take a nap.

Good job strategising. Yeah, looks tough and you're in a tricky situation - but can't complain when you're working things out and using game mechanics like this, so good effort. Hope it pulls off for you!
 
Maybe now that you've started using the breath holding, it might be worth using it to bypass certain enemies rather than fighting them, just in the interests of preserving ammo since that's a big part of the problem here? Just a thought.
 
I love watching the endurance run(s) as I like seeing how different people play so I can go "yeah, I wouldn't have done that" or "I'd do that", so it's good to watch your way which is why I'm not going to post advice often. Thought it might be useful this once though

This. 
 
They're in a bad situation and considering the clunky controls Brad is doing great. To all the guys mentioning the side-quest rewards:  this game doesn't really encourage you to do side-quests. Everytime they tried to go free-roaming NPCs were giving them the finger or most (if not all) locations were closed.

YOU STUPID FUCKING ASSHOLES!!! 
 Instead of trying to encourage Brad and help him out, you're fucking bringing him down and spitting on him. You fucking downers!:S

There are SO many items they could have that would make their lives so much easier...
 
I'll bet this game would suddenly seem ten times more appealing if they managed to get the Radio.   Or the Weapon Bag.   Or any of the other infinite ammo weapons.  
 
I really, really hate those crazy Alma clones.  They're not particularly hard to dodge, but they're bags of hit points that can't be hit as often as you'd like due to the invisibility = invincibility.
 
Either way, keep it up fellas.

Can't help but wonder how much better this Endurance Run would be if Ryan just hijacked it. He has the game anyway so he could learn the controls at home then BOOM! Guess what Brad: Secret coup!!!

Just to let you know Brad & anyone else playing DP, the red skies/zombies seem to be like that from midnight to early morning. It's even more amazing when you go driving & not on this mission at this time.

Ah. Love the fact that he spent minutes wasting all that ammo on the obviously infinite spawning zombies.

God, what is with all the moaning about Brad's gameplay? Bitter people, man.

Good tries Brad.   :P

Good tries.  That 360 round infinite machine gun would probably come in handy right about now.  I think Brad lives in crouch a bit too much though.

Heh, poor Brad.  I won't complain about how he did in this episode; the game was genuinely bullshit with the wall lady and Brad definitely was trying harder than normal, so it wasn't all on Brad this time.  Mind you, it's been Brad's poor playing that's gotten him into this fix (no health kits because of carelessness making him take damage and waste what health kits he had in the past, no exploring and trying to find side missions for quest rewards so now his only good weapon is running out of ammo, no going to shops to stock up on things, etc., etc.), but at least now he's doing poorly against an obstacle that it's justifiable to do poorly against.

FINALLY! I have been waiting for Brad to die.

I don't mean to hate on him (he is my state kin - which I find awesome), but I am glad to see him having some trouble. It makes me more interested in a game by knowing it is somewhat challenging. I know he finds it frustrating, but it is a useful skill to have on a review team - to show the difficulty, rather than people cruising through saying, "man, this is a hard game." Plus, I was curious about what it is like to die.

I hope that makes some sense...

The wall-lady looks impossible. Why the hell are you guys hating on Brad instead of blaming the game that spawned such a cheap enemy?

People hating on Brad really need to shut the fuck up. The games design is terrible and the wall lady thing is a terribly designed enemy and because of the poor design he does not stand a fair chance against her because of the things like being stuck in a prolonged reloading animation. He has done fantastic so far, but I dont see people giving him credit for that.

So besides all the hate on Brad for this episode.. 
 
Who the hell "advised" Brad "not to shoot crates" ??? So they're low on health kits and they somehow got "advice" about not shooting crates. Way to go internet. At least they decided to do it anyway and get that health kit.

@Godlyawesomeguy:  yet Vinny did a much better, albeit slower, job of killing them. So based on that he sucks.

"To your left, to your left.". (Brad turn right). "No, the other left."       Priceless.
