Ryan "Ripe apple goes to old guy, it's an age thing" 
 
Brad "You sure about that?" 
 
Really Brad? Really?

Posted by SchwartzChamp

They were probably fucking with us.
 
Also if you think this stuff is annoying you guys should all go back and watch Persona 4 again because BOY HOWDY Vinny makes some bad long-term decisions.

Crazy York!

This is the first time any of the endurance runs have frustrated me, thanks Brad and Ryan!!

You had two golf clubs...

It's like they don't play video games for a living.  BR is the only ER I've had to yell at my computer to tell them to do the obvious thing.  I know it's easy for me being the backseat driver but it's not missing an item or a door, it's knowing your video game logic and that is not something they of all people should forget.

How york doesn't cock the slide on his 9mm is bothering me so much

Posted by devotfeige

Calling it: Vinny's fail today was worse than any of Brad's has been.
 
And that is truly something that Team BR can be proud of!

woohoo!

how is it that they haven't realized when they see the purple cloud, the enemies are dead?

Posted by Jason_E_Sigler

I don't think I'll ever understand how it's possible to complain about voluntarily watching a free video on a website. Thanks for playing, fellas, and next time you see a tree, SHOOT THE MOTHERF***** THING.

What BS.. They've played this chapter before.
 
Reasons:
1. As he was going up the steps he said and the baby is up here.. before they knew.
2. Right after they died from the timer they're like.. let's shoot the apples!
3. They knew the zombie dropped the shotty before they couldve known..
 
This is all noticed within the first 12 minutes.. Will edit later.

I would suck at this game.

@D8K7: 
 
1. They assumed that because the camera showed a cut to the image of the baby, and seeing how they had fully explored their part of the first floor, they naturally assumed the baby had to be on the second floor.
 
I assumed the same thing on my playthrough
 
2. That's......because they suddenly realized how simple the solution was
 
3. You have way too much fate in their memories, they thought the same thing when the zombies in the hospital appeared and they were disappointed  when it turned out to be wrong, and that was long enough ago too forget(especially if you consider their memory spans) 
 
I dunno, I don't think they're lying. Mainly because they really sucked at it the last couple of times they tried too(IE Ryan asking Brad ''how was your weekend?'' on BR-16)

I think they have...they never mention it, but Brad usually stops shooting when he sees that cloud.

I love the way these guys are playing. Partly because it's so entertainingly infuriating, and partly because of the reaction it garners here. :P And of course, it's all very common in the line of ER's... Just look at the whole Naoto protection thing.

@gbrading: 
Where can I see other ERs? Only ones I could find are Persona 4 and DP.

@D8K7:  
they knew she dropped the gun because it played the item drop sound, and they really really want a shotgun
Edited by gbrading
@D8K7:
Well that's it: I was only thinking of the myriad of supposed "mistakes" that were made during Persona 4. :P
Posted by MeruFM

  At first I was somewhat annoyed at how they played. 
But after watching so many episodes of endurance since P4, I had endured enough to reach a Zen state. I just go along with the ride.

" @Enns: Yeah, he did, but it wouldn't have taken him 5 minutes to clear it if he pulled out his shotgun. "
Good point. I was just relieved he didn't eat it before the save.

You had two golf clubs, so you threw away both the almost broken one and the brand new one when you chose to throw away the golf clubs. You only had one mission knife, so now you have just one melee weapon left.

God damn it... watching these with no ability for interaction is often frustrating beyond belief. Their folly could be easily forgiven had they not gone through the same tree puzzle back at the lumber mill. Not to brag, but I'm pretty sure I would have figured it out immediately.
 
You said it, Ryan. Brad as cocky as shit, especially in the light of being caught so many fucking times. Take your time, Brad - let VJ catch up to y'all.
 
I must say, Brad, you handled the basement section very well. My advice would have been to take out a melee weapon, but either way, it turned out all right. By the way, when you hear a 'crystal shatter' like sound, that means you killed the zombie. Don't waste your rounds.

@D8K7:  You're joking, right?  They figured all that stuff out becuase they' have played fucking video games before.  If you're telling me that you didn't see all of that stuff coming too... then I don't know what to say.  The apple puzzle is Survival Horror Game 101 shit.  I was extremely shocked they didn't figure it out the first time.  Apples in picture? Apples in tree?  Hmm what could this possible mean? Duh!  Also, you see the shotgun hit the ground after the zombie dies.  That's what happens when a enemy drops a usuable weapon.  IT'S BEEN HAPPENING THE ENTIRE GAME.  And the baby was obviously upstairs because they saw the old man on the other side of the room, and the other picture was right behind them (Also, the stairs were the only place to go).  The only other picture was upstairs. Anyone who has played video games before should've have been able to put all that together.

No, he absolutely does not. Both teams routinely keep shooting the zombies until they clip through the floor. I think Vinny might be aware of it, there were a few early VJ episodes where they just stood there and watched a zombie's extremely lengthy "preparing to fall down and die" animation, but now they hurry things along with that one extra bullet.
Posted by MadaRenrut

what's up with these back to back 20 minute endurance runs??! 

Posted by fallen_elite

Is it just me or did Brad get substantially better at playing the game in this video? Nice job Brad.

Posted by PeeBix

Huh... I remember you only getting 360 bullets from the toolbox... not 900. But i could be wrong.

The raincoat killer looked kind of like the town gravedigger in the profiling this time.
Edited by EthanielRain

Brad: "Guess what?"
Ryan, with a sense of deep yet subdued rage: "You're gonna get fucking caught by this guy is guess what."
 
Made me laugh :)  I think Ryan's going to take some vacation days after this ER is over.

After this and how long it took them to figure out to shoot the apples, I'm convinced that Brad does not actually play video games.
Posted by niyoko

This is enjoyable, but it is like watching my little sister play games...I have to ALWAYS tell her the obvious. "Shotgun! Shotgun! USE THE GODDAMN SHOTGUN!!"  


"Turn around! TURN AROUnD!!   ...now you're dead!"

Posted by Jeremy_x

at least now i know what happens when the timer runs out: even creepier smiling York.  
 
Ryan must have a hell of a patience with Brad.
Posted by Zalasta

Hate being a backseat driver on these endurance runs, but...in close quarter combat where the zombies are on top of each other, shotgun is the perfect weapon to use due to the splash damage it causes.  Not really sure why they didn't make better use of it.
 
And the "hitting the painting with golf club" suggestion was ridiculous.  Really?

Posted by Capum15

"Guess what."
"You're gonna get fuckin' caught by this guy is 'guess what'."
*grabbed*
"Okay, now guess what."
"You're gonna get caught again?"
 
"Not into getting stabbed?"
"I knew she was kinky but damn."
 
You guys are awesome. Time to go watch VJ.

"Gotta establish a defensive position" (runs into zombie)

Posted by El_Duderino

brad isn't bad at the game he's just bad at using anything but the pistol.  Did you see how he handled that room of zombies towards the end.
 
love the endurance run. keep it up

Posted by takua108

I'm not one to complain about others playing video games "incorrectly," but to me, shooting the apples off the tree was the first thing I thought of.

i dont like this idea at all

WHAT DO WE DOOO THIS GAME IS UNFAIR AND CONFUSINGGGGGGG 
 
I'm not saying that these guys need to be experts at all games (as Jeff says, he is adequate at Halo while general consumers are way better and that's okay), but Jesus Christ.  It's depressing and makes me question the viewpoints of Giant Bomb when its owners and operators and REVIEWERS cannot digest vidja-gamin' 101.  Like I said, they don't have to be perfect, but to be professionals they should be exponentially better than this Endurance Run has shown. 
 
Dunno yet about Ryan, but at least with Brad I'll be taking all his reviews and opinions with a new truckload of salt.  Games have not only skillful mastery of shooting/fighting/whatever (which Brad has shown to lack), but also logic puzzles.  Sometimes logic is stuff like "Reload your gun when you are low on ammo", or "Shoot at the tree when you see the tree in the cutscene and have experienced basically the same thing before."  If you lack one or the other or both then it's definitely easy to question why someone became a game critic in the first place.  There's a difference between general consumers, like most of us commenting, providing no real videos or output, having made no official company and website.  When a specialized website in a specialized profession can't pull their shit together, things are looking grim.

[sarcasm] Way to drop two golf clubs guys. Way to understand the mechanics of the game you've been playing. [/sarcasm]


Also the puzzle was infuriating. In both this ER and the other one, but this one is even more egregious. 

Posted by Sharpless

How do they not recognize infinite-spawn points? I mean, I can understand sitting through two waves, maybe even three, before realizing what's up, but I'm pretty sure they stayed in the same room happily plugging away at four or five waves of zombies that kept spawning from the exact same location. 
 
Come on, guys. You're veterans, here. Check yo' heads. SMG ammo doesn't grow on hand-trees.

cinematic showing paitings with apples.
 
interact with all pedestals in front of painting with apples.
 
cinematic of tree cutting to each apple on it.
 
WHAT DO WE DO?!?!

I don't know if anyone should see this but, I'd rather just watch the ER than care about the quest anyday.

@TadThuggish:  They don't have to be the best; one of the greatest times in GB videos are when things go wrong, but they shouldn't be genre blind.
