OMG FIRST. Kick that shadow's ass

Posted by ahoodedfigure

Ah, but the die is already cast.

Posted by CoinMatze

So all the clues (podcast, i like mondays, vinny's comment on yesterday's episode) point to this being the series finale. Hopefully, I'm wrong. I need to get me some tissues and a huge pizza. I hope you guys do a spin-off, though it will never be the same.

Posted by Thievius

I want to watch, but I kinda don't want to watch.

I'll really be bummed if this is the last one.

Let it begin!
99% of all things that take significant amounts of in-game time take a two step selection.

It randomizes the inherited abilities!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Gah!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
No!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!- Well- semi no.

I'm happy you folks don't look at FAQs and the like- but for monkeys sake- maybe read the manual when you don't understand something that might be important.

And now I'm watching them buy the TAP soda.
Value Medicine can be very useful- since your entire group will often need to regain health.

Costco Polish Sausages beat hotdogs every time!

Maybe you folks should have checked the weather before you went in...

I told you guys it would only get better from here!!!

Game on Shadow Yukiko!
Most of the Boss Shadows don't have weaknesses/major strengths- they just tend to have lots of HP.
This is a bit weird- as the game teaches you to attempt to take advantage of such things- but my theory is they didn't want to create a situation in which the player- or a significant number of party members can't hit the boss.
Weaknesses and strengths come into play when dealing with the secondary Shadows that accompany bosses. They often have the more creative situation- and many guides recommend to kill them before the boss. I've had success both ways- and a lot of it depends on how much health/SP you have to work with- and how well you can heal your party- either with items or abilities.

And TAP can only be used outside out of battle....
There are SP increase items for in battle- TAP and the like are just cheap solutions for the occasional boost of SP and to make it all the way to the end of a floor or the like.

Victory!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Yes!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Good job gentlemen!!!
And don't scare us like that.
Or actually- do- because it makes good Internet Television.

Rise, all loyal Giantbombers and hurl your challenge to the foe.
You will fight, day or night, rain or snow.
Loyal, strong, and true
Wear the Red and Black.
While we sing, get set to spring.
Come on Giantbombers, it's up to you!

CHORUS:
So Rise and Shout, the Giantbombers are out
Along the the trail to fame and glory.
Rise and shout, our cheers will ring out,
As you unfold your vict'ry story.
On you go to vanquish the foe
For Alma Mater's sons and daughters.
As we join in song, in praise of you, our faith is strong.
We'll raise our colors high in the blue,
And cheer our Giantbombers of giantbomb.com.

Terrible fight song alteration.

They did it. They did it! Hip! Hurray!

Oh so early today thanks :)

Posted early, Sweet.

Posted by Zripwud

EPICCCCC WINNNNN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Posted by BarrenMind

Sweet, sweet victory.  Awesome job guys.

I had no idea Sonic Punch was that powerful.  I've been avoiding those HP draining moves.

Posted by af7lm

good work guys... thought you were goners after chie ran out of sp... way to go

Posted by Thievius

Haha.  That was epic.

Vinny got a little excited. Hahha.

Posted by StormTrooper

i can't even believe how tense i got during that battle.  just from watching.  so weird.

Posted by Mooshu

I was on the edge of my seat.

That was awesome.

Posted by Meltbrain

Hehehe, oh man that was friggin' awesome. I really didn't think you'd pull it off earlier in the battle but damn, that was ace.

Posted by Solarc

Nice job on the big boss, guys. And I'm glad you all are going to continue with this run. This is a fun run and game. Keep up the good work and a word of advice... only go long on the time for a boss fight.

Posted by carlthenimrod

Is it a coincidence that you used a "Sonic Punch" to beat the enemy and your main character is named Charlie?

This is divine intervention.

Posted by ArcticDonkey

So awesome....

Posted by samcotts

Wow, that was fucking epic. Definitely the best episode yet.


But are we nearing the end of this Endurance Run? You guys have confused me. If you were going to end it you would of done right after the battle in this episode, so hopefully that's a sign you guys are OK with going on. Pretty please? I need more Persona 4 Endurance Run after that, that was brilliant.
Posted by Vorbis

Awesome, saved by Sonic Punch.

Posted by EmperorSeth

Oh, you guys got so lucky on that one.  Three quick things...
The powers when you fuse are RANDOM!  Gah!  You could just take two minutes and get, say, a Senri with Zio and Red Wall just by canceling the three out and trying again.  Not compelling viewing, admittedly, but still...

Dia is powered by magic and is usually better than medicine.  I mean, you saw how much sp Yosuke had left. 
He should've diaed people every round you were spending medicine on.

Oh, and cure people of Fear immediately.  You know how Chie and Yosuke nearly got killed saving your ass there?  The boss was using a move that instantly kills someone with the fear effect.

Posted by cblackweiu

You guys can't stop this endurance run, it's too big now.  I was a skeptic at first, but now I'm totally hooked.  I get up, turn on my computer (most likely at work) check my email and look for the new Persona 4 video, in that order.  This is like a modern day book serial except in video form and without Dumas or Dickens anywhere to lead you down the right path.

WWWWWOOOOOOOO IT LIVES

Now it's time to meet KANJI!

Posted by Steve_C

Fucking excellent comeback. I love those against the odds rpg victories where you barely scrape through it.

Posted by Shadowsquire

lol wow guys. you sorta suck at the whole boss fighting thing :P but grats at making it through! 


TIP: im pretty sure you have to talk to teddie TWICE before going in to get the items from him.
Posted by Anviltongue

I was cheering you guys on...Vinny's excitement was epic!  Wait until the next dungeon...that's when the game gets uber-crazy (theme-wise).

Oh, and the echo a few folks on here...Personas inherit skills from their parents randomly.  If you don't get the mix you like go back and select the Personas to be fused again.  I was screaming at the screen at that point.

Still, that fight was the most exciting thing I've seen all week!  Good job!

Posted by cipri

GOOD JOBB!!! WOWW LVL 14 PRETTY GOOD Hahah that was epicc

Posted by Dudacles

That was epic.

Posted by Giacomito

this episode was.....



EPIC!

Posted by Cammy

Vinny woke my dog with that last scream, totally worth it!

Edited by RiddleBrother

DUDE. I love this endurance run, but you guys should end it here.
I think that's probably the most "closed" the story is going to be until the end.
Shut it down on a high, guys, and do this with another game, but maybe try it with a shit one. Fantastic 4, anyone?


Posted by delicious_lie

oh man.
i was pumping my fist in celebration when you kicked that bird's ass.
best endurance run ever.
congratulations, fellas.

Posted by MooseHead

Great endurance run! So much drama within this one episode. I might start playing rpgs like Vinny and using only one save slot cause that what's gaming is all about. No more about going back to an old save slot to choose the other decision. This was intense!! I felt like such a backseat gamer yelling at the screen as if this was live and you guys could here me. I was really hoping you guys would pull through. The comments you guys make are also hilarious. Makes gaming much more enjoyable.

Posted by samcotts

RiddleBrother, I couldn't be more against what you're saying. The Endurance Run needs to live after that. I don't care if they end it on a downer, the more episodes the better.

Posted by MrBeabo

The suspense is terrible...I hope it lasts.

Posted by Gearhead

FUCK YEAH!

Posted by endaround

Great job, my only niggling thing is that while in most JRPGs buffs seems like a waste of a trun in Persona they are really powerful.  Lowering a boss defensse for 3 turns basically causes all your attacks to do 40% more damage.  You lowere the boses hit/evasion rate you hit more and evade more attacks. 


You are about to gain a shit load more SLs.  The best thing to do is focus on a few and carry aroudn amtchign persona.  Durign teh day you can stop at the velvet room if you find you don't ahve teh right one but at night you can't so you especailly want those out.

This one was full of suspense, thats the way i like it :D

Posted by Henl3y

Woah amazing, great battle :D

Posted by ahoodedfigure

Posted by Zushi

Man, that was epic! I cheered right along with you guys when you won.
