Holy crap that was the most anticlimactic yet hilarious ending to that battle.

Edited by Ventilaator

Funny how Brad blames the controls and aiming, yet was totally unable to beat this epically tough hyper-challenging boss encounter with an enemy  WHO SHINES A BRIGHT LIGHT IN YOUR FACE WHEN IT'S ABOUT TO ATTACK.

So are you saying the controls and aiming aren't horribly clunky in this game?

No, I'm saying that I find it hard to imagine up a more straightforward enemy than that.

GUFFAW!

I think one problem is while the game designers want you to do the side quests, everything in the game itself is all about making your time and not being late and do this, so neither Brad nor Ryan think about missing the time and coming back in a day or two to do it. They have been trained to play games where when it tells you to do something you do it.

Have you seen his achievement list? And have you seen the Halo Reach footage? 
Also, you might remember from the old Gamespot days that Brad is known for performing less than optimal when he's on video or when he's talking. 
Your complaining about Brad actually includes the answer to your question: he became a video game journalist and was able to remain in that business because he doesn't lack skill.

That almost turned into Brad's Inferno :D
Posted by fox01313

Surprised that Brad doesn't take his chances killing crates for possible health, like the low crates to walk over.  

 
Tip on the ceiling ghostie, the ghost is solid after it attacks so just use the quick turn (use the reverse facing mode) hit it then & takes a while to kill this way.  Keep running back & forth down the hall, might have to pause a moment for it to go into attack mode. Just don't use the smg as after you hit it 2x there's a dodge move that pops up when it lands on the ground. The dodge is easy to miss when you are there turning that damn enemy into a chain link fence.

He probably did, although this might refer to the fact that they have 900 bullets.

Were is VJ-18.... Does this get posted at a different time now?
Posted by PacManFevaa

I didn't do any side quests when I did this part. All I did was run past her turn around and she was still in her glow hands and grab you animation so I shot her. I think I've only done one or two side quests at all, one was for the infinite 10mm though.

Boom! You beat that bitch.

" What the hell is wrong with you people.    I think it's funny to see ole' B flounder and get worked in the game.  And so what!  That's entertainment!   Don't get all abrasive up in here and start slinging the hate bombs for him, that's just makes you look petulant and it's bad form.  This game is pretty much refined crap except for a little charm so let BR's play simmer a little bit.   You know, because doing some hyper nerd 100% take down everything run is pretty damn boring too so chill. "

Well said. 
However, VJ received the same kind of bullshit comments when they were doing the P4 Endurance Run--that was actually a good game and the guys did well, I think. I guess that's just the nature of our community. There is no escaping the rage.

AWESOME! 

Posted by RagingLion

Wow.  Brad was on 1% hp and was half a second from the wallcreeper's attack animation completing and killing him, when he just got off that second golf club swing and killed her.  I definitely thought that was going to go on for longer than it did.  Well done BR.

I kind of felt that way while playing, but they still spent plenty of time smoking and sleeping though.

No one's saying the controls are great. But if Brad decides to hit her after she's announced her intention to attack, that's not really the game's fault.
Posted by TheJuda

 She really isn't that difficult to kill, it just takes a while with the pistol.  They made it way harder than it needs to be.   You just run, turn, shoot.  Wait for her to fall to the floor, dodge her shot. rinse and repeat.  Pretty easy. Wait till later on when they'll fight like 7 of the wall crawlers in a row.

Oh thank God!!!:O Some of you are getting  inlightened.:D That's what i was trying to tell this people yesterday, but offcorse, almost nobody reads other people's posts, so, it's almost like talking to a wall.
Brad is great at games. I mean, its logical he is. But probably more than a half of the people here don't even try to think normal. They're just stupid and depressed, full of anger and hate, so they write childish things to satisfy their needs. A lot of haters in here. It's fucking horrible.

Indeed no one is saying that the controls are great. But most people who attack Brad also don't acknowledge that the game's combat design is terrible.
More importantly, why are so many people getting so worked up about this?

I think you've both missed the point of what being a journalist is. His ability to handle a controller doesn't so much affect his ability to report the state of the games industry nor his writing in general. I've heard plenty of journalists admit to being terrible at certain genres or games in general on podcasts (though I can't name any off the top of my head, sorry).

The endurance run is back on track!!!
Also there is a shotgun dropped in the next room.
Yes Brad is good at games. He is just bad at talking while playing them, which is why it's so funny when he dies.

I usually don't say anything but Brad....seriously it's your own fault SHE FUCKING GLOWS how clear do you want shit to be.

Posted by ashbash

At last! Man, I would have gave up on here. Well done Brad for enduring for this endurance run!

Yeah, I also got the impression that Vinny or Jeff probably spilled the beans on that one. Or maybe Brad just overheard one of the VJ play sessions?
 
I kind of liked the direction this was going: VJ doing sidequests and just sailing through the game slowly with ease while BR rushed ahead while facing difficult opposition at every turn. It created an interesting dichotomy of two ways to play Deadly Premonition.

I don't think I missed the point at all. If you look closely, I am merely pointing out that Brad has the skills to be a video game journalist--which is the same as what you are pointing out. Aside from that, I'm also pointing out that Brad is actually good as playing games. 
Edited by Bratcher_Lev

Normally I prefer to watch VJ first, but after the end of the last BR I REALLY want to  see how they do this. Then again, I am posting this BEFORE I watch it, so for all I know it's 20 more minutes of them totally biting it over and over and over (you know. . . like last episode).
 EDIT: 1:06 First thing Brad does is get fisted to death . . . Niiice.
 B: What have we got to lose? R: TIME   B:I'm truly shocked at the number of friends on my friends list who are playing this game, have you noticed that?   R: NO

Can somebody explain to me the rules of the endurance run? Are you not allowed to load a previous save.

Posted by Monkeyman04
@SlickWillyJJ:  There is one save and one save only throughout the ER.

I think Brad knowing about the existence of the infinite SMG is probably due to the shitloads of comments on the last video where people were screaming for him to get it, insulting him and questioning his career because he didn't pick up a non-essential item in a budget game they were kind enough to subject themselves to for our entertainment. Probably had something to do with that.

Nah, looking through the comments I'm pretty sure most people just want him to understand basic game mechanics
 
Like shooting barrels makes them explode(took them 4 hours)

Brad must be playing Alan Wake  
 
Glad they got past this part and i hope they get the infinte sub machine gun soon
Posted by NuDimon

Triumph!  I lol'ed sooooo hard on that kill. XD

Posted by SuperJoe

When Brad is nervous he becomes talkative, but he doesn't play well while talking so he ends up dying.  Repeatedly dying causes him to be more nervous.  It's a vicious cycle.

Posted by CornBREDX

Yay! You did it! I knew you could although I didnt realize the melee weapons did that much damage to her. Pretty cool. Good job guys! WOOO! The BR ER rages on!
Posted by Kefkaesque

I am in shock.
 
That victory was really, really stupid. A hundred bullets to the face? Fine. A couple of whacks with a golf club? Insta-death.
 
 God the combat in this game is terrible looking. If you're gonna rip off RE4, you could at least do it properly.

Melee weapons>guns in this game. This was established in episode 1.
 
Their downside is that they have low durability.
 
I don't see how that's ''terrible''. The combat isn't the best ever,  but its not completely awful either. Its mediocre.
 
And fuck the infinite SMG I hope they get the infinite Magnum and the  guitar ! I  found those 2 weapons to be more then sufficient for 90% of the enemies in this game.

Man, I'm sure DP is a janky game, but also that it's not quite as janky as Ryan and especially Brad make it out to be.

Edited by InFamous91

Great Job Brad...lmao wow shooting won't do it, but hitting her twice with a golf club will do.
