@King9999: Also, Persona 4 is all menus.  You can take as much real-world time as you want to decide anything, allowing the two of them to consult each other for every decision they make.

Rushing the end boss definitely tops bufu, that was hilarious.

Aw damn, tomorrow it will be "duder, it's over" for real :(

I'm pretty sure I hit the rush button while facing the boss. You'd still attack, but you wont waste any SP. Its not as bad as it sounds.

lol rushing the last boss.
 
I'm vinny and not only do i cast bufu when i shouldn't, i rush bosses!

I don't know why they're trying to kill this boss. its clear he supports the fight against breast cancer

Actually, it's pretty horrible.  What do you mean?  The only thing rushing does is it makes turns go extra fast and it makes the characters only use their weapons.  And doing that against the final boss, Izanami, is suicide.

I love this game so much!

NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOo it's gonna end soon! Well i can't wait for the next episode then.

Oh man... the Endurance Run is over tomorrow

Tetrakarn affects all allies, and you could have totally broke some of the big robot's elemental strengths. After 150 episodes, you guys still suck at this. I mean, for fucks sake, guys.
 
Also, you fused Mada with no Makakarn or Tetrakarn? Honestly, fuck you guys.

Posted by JoeOE18

Oh wow. I was getting really worried when I noticed how little time was left as they approached the end of the boss. I was concerned it would do some kind of one hit KO and they'd have to start it all over again.

He doesn't just rush any boss. He rushes the last boss of the game!  
When Vinny does something, he goes all out!

I am glad the ER is about over so we are spared more of your eternal wisdom.

FAREWELL, ENDURANCE RUN 
 
YOU WERE A TRUE PATRIOT

Posted by sagarat

For the next endurance run, I cast my vote for:

Shin Megami Tensei: Devil Summoner 2

The Endurance Run ends tomorrow! :(

The End of the Endurance Run also signifies the end of people like him... until the next one.

aahahaha, RUSH! this one's the new bufu folks! shaqfooing amazing!

Posted by lordofultima

It was a good run guys, please continue the endurance run, but select the next game wisely! (aka not another shin megami game unless it's Persona 3).

This has been extremely satisfying so far! I loved that the game acknowledged Izanami being a goddess, I was kinda shocked about the final spell that wiped out the party, even though it was probably scripted, and I just really liked this boss fight ( particularly the design of the second boss-form with all the arms to meddle in human affairs). The commentary was fun & the accidental hitting of triangle-button was just priceless. 
Can't wait to see how it all ends, although I somewhat dread the last episode :(  

@AuthenticM: Morrowind sounds like a good idea for an ER, I love that game & played it relentlessly. It has the serious drawbacks (only as an ER game) of not having much spoken dialoge at all and also not having much of a linear structure.
Actually I think "The Witcher" might be a very good PC-RPG for an ER. It has a structure closer to Persona 4 (as far as not being a sandbox-open-world-game), all the dialoge is being spoken and it has lots of humor and potential to be dicussed or made fun of :)

Damn good work.  Looking forward to the final episode.  Give it everything you've got tomorrow.
Posted by PsychedelicET

GREAT episode!  Can't wait to see what will probably be the stunning conclusion of the Endurance Run tomorrow!!

How about you check your facts before stating how awesome you are?  Tetrakarn and Makarakarn in Persona 4 only affects 1 PERSON.  So stop making yourself look like an idiot.

As epic as this fight is, does anyone else prefer the music in the last boss against the Disco Eyeball? 

Posted by PolyesterPimp

I love how they always realize the mathematics for the damage chie does with and without buffs near the end of the damn episode... Their hilarious ha ha ha!

Posted by championfetus

i hear a "best of" episode is in the works.

Yes, Almighty is far superior to Genesis.  That said, Fog (the music for Izanami's first form) is arguably better.

@Aion: awww, even Aion came out to congratulate Jeff and Vinny, how nice.
 
Looking forward to tomorrow, let's do this shit!

Can't believe I actually catched up. 
But now... I almost don't wanna watch the episode. I mean, seriously. A world without the endurance run?! What's that gonna be like?

DON'T PRESS TRIANGLE

Posted by aurorafiore

Dunno if someone mentioned this before but..
 
It's a waste of a turn to cast Tarukaja on Chie, because it expires in the 2 of her other turns. Matarukaja would be a better deal if you had the MC casting it.
 
Summons to Yomi auto kills anyone with a status ailment.

I like how the girls are the first to come to Charlie's rescue at the end.

@AlKusanagi: Fight Margaret. I DARE you to say the same thing after. I just beat her.
Posted by bigall94

1. The remixed music made me a little emotional. I'd like to meet Shouji Boi and shake his hand.
2. I'm going to miss finishing homework and watching Vinny cast Bufu.
3. Surprisingly easy boss..but I get that if you haven't mastered buffs and healing, then it would be crazy hard.
4. I'm so excited to see how this all wraps up.
So mixed in my emotions...I'm so glad you Jeff and Vinny are finishing this game, but the time we've spent watching them play has been so fun. INVESTIGATION TEAM. GO!

Posted by allhailthetv

They lucked out with Summons to Yomi.  I died on that in my first playthrough.

Posted by brighteye

Talk about worst time to missclick on that triangle button, if you havent invested so much in healing and buffs, that would have been a wipe move.....

All and all ,tnx for making 2009 a better year for us, the endurance run have been wierd, fun and more wierdness but in the end highly enjoyable and it turned out to be the perfect game for a really long run.

We will miss the investigation team.....

Posted by Gamer_152

I really thought this was gonna be the last one and then Jeff and Vinny leave us with an awesome cliffhanger like that. It's not gonna be the same once the Endurance Run is gone but I'm sure the ending will be epic. On a side-note I really like how the final two bosses haven't just been deranged maniacs or characters who are evil for the sake of being evil, they have been characters who actually provide strong justification for why they are doing what they are doing. While I of course think that the reasons they do what they do are fundamentally flawed, they do make some very valid points about the negative aspects of humanity.

This, but also...

Posted by Crushed

They can ditch the investigation team and hit up SEES. The characters might not be as fun or enjoyable as the P4 ones, but they're much crazier in nature.

Edited by AdventNemesis

I can't help but feel disappointed that they never discovered Sraosha's magnificence. He was my favorite.
 
Oh and my estimation for the finale's date was righto. Yippee!

Posted by Mistral

 
Rushing Izanami. Truly the best battle in the entirety of the Endurance Run.

Runner up for this ep:Forgetting the set damage items when they were up against the 100HP robot(thus making the battle take several turns instead of one). I know you never use them, but surely you remember they exist, right? I mean, you keep picking them up!

Edited by watertails

Hay, guise, how much longer is left until the end of P4? I'm tempted to head home on my off hour tomorrow for the finale, assuming it isn't too long.

I might've begun the battle using the Rush command. When it became Yukiko's turn (and my party was hurt pretty bad) I'd always stop it and heal. 
 
Heck, I even had an accessory that gives you all your health back if your HP reaches 0 and the boss never killed me. I salute this 'accidental' rush command. I also kind of wish they'd use it more often...
