"I got a 40." YES! Colt 45, I hope, who could resist Billy Dee Williams' malt liquor of choice?

Is it just me, or is does the full screen make the video run slow?

Well, that certainly seemed easier than everyone made it out to be.  Great job, guys, although the Fire Break wasn't necessary.  Break spells will change Str, Nul, Drn, or Rpl to nothing.  Wall spells either bump resistance up one level (Wk to --, -- to Str) or they always bump it up to Str.  I dunno which.

At some point during the fight the boss had Red Wall and Fire Break on it at the same time.  But, one won't erase the other; they just cancel each other out until one goes away.

Also, you guys are in the clear for a while; you have a whole month until the next dungeon opens.

Aw, I didn't want them to find out about the model, I was hoping it'd be the kinda thing where they do a round of the room at the end of the game one last time, then by accident put two models up there.

Ah well, congrats!

lol 


This is probably the first time ever the team was overprepared for Shadow Boss at the end of the dungeon. Nice episode!

Edit: I take that back lol

I'm loving that everybody saying, "They suck and are going to die at least twice on this boss" got pwned. Sure, they made mistakes (misplacing armor and wasting moves with armor break) but they literally made that battle look easy. I have full confidence in Jeff and Vinny moving forward.

Ok guys... either somehitng can be done on the display of video on the website, specifically on the Endurance Run section or you start posting them on Youtube or Vimeo or whatever. I really don't want to get bored and not tune in to each thrilling chapter of the endurance run. Please fix the loading or whatever it is that doesn't let the video charge-up completly. Thanks and best of luck on finishing the game.

In 2009 a high school click was sent into a television by a magic bear for a crime they didn't commit. These men promptly escaped from TV-land to the Inaba underground. Today, still wanted by the government, they survive as soldiers of fortune. If you have a problem, if no one else can help, and if you can find them, maybe you can hire the A-Team.

Man, you kicked his ass. Congrats, gentlemen.

I know this has been said several times already, but... equipping the armor on Kanji? I've watched that part twice now, and it completely baffled me both times. Seriously, I would like to know how that happened.

That was awesome.

OH GOD YOU PUT THE ARMOR ON KANJI!

Hey, I`m with hooligan! I spent 15 minutes screaming and pounding the floor when they didn`t choose the medditeraenian ingredients. Damn! Damn! (sniff..) and of course, SNRK.
 
I`m a Yukiko fan.

 Great episode by the way :) Just hope you guys can get all s links for your team to 10 before the end.

Posted by AkasoFailsOnGiantBomb

Man, you guys sounded like you were in pain near the end there. You know, I can never tell if you actually like this game or not. Wouldn't surprise me if you didn't. It is the Endurance run, after all.

Also, mildly retarded? The hell? I thought you liked Chie! Or... was that sarcasm?

Posted by Zeik

That boss seemed a lot easier on normal. On hard that lightning attack took off like 2/3 of my characters life. :/

"Saaaaaave! Save it! Hey, that's pretty good. Save it!" Ha ha ha!

Posted by toadstule

Wow, they did a very good job beating the boss. Good episode.

Posted by Renegade

I'm surprised only 2 people in the comments caught it, but you put the armor on Kanji Vinny! Oh man, haha.

<3 The Endurance Run

Posted by golguin

Great Episode!  You tore that baby up and showed up all the naysayers :P.

Posted by SinGulaR

84 minutes? I'll have to finish watching this one later. I-TEAM GO!!! :)

Posted by Soviet666

I'm not sure, but i think you put the new armor on Kanji.

They definitely did. I was really hoping they would notice before the boss fight, but apparently they didn't need any extra help.
Edited by Lilarcor

Break spells only lower an enemy's resistance if it's Resist or higher. Mitsuo didn't resist any element, so casting Fire Break on him was unnecessary. But overall you guys did great against one of the tougher bosses in the game.

Also, get used to bosses having two turns, because I believe every dungeon boss for the rest of the game gets multiple turns.

Posted by Origina1Penguin

I'm surprised they didn't take more advantage of the "dirty mind" moments.  I did enjoy the "Get away from the kid, you sick bastard" remark.  "I just shit my pants" was great too.

Posted by AaronP

YOU PUT THE NEW ARMOR ON KANJI VINNY!!!!

Seriously bummed me out in the first minutes, guess Kanji will be a bit tougher now though.

Posted by trimon

Nanakos such a Paula Abdul :b

Posted by hakunin

aww, you should have gone with Asian American.

Posted by Carlos1408

That was great guys, you really are getting tough! AWESOME! Black Frost! YAY-YA!

Posted by Norbington

HEY I DON'T KNOW IF YOU NOTICED BUT YOU PUT THE ARMOR ON KANJI!!!!!!

SERIOUSLY I DON'T KNOW WHY NO ONE HAS MENTIONED IT YET!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

You guys shouldnt be that wasting turns mind charging, you should mind charge everytime you knocked down the baby instead of all outing.  And masakunda is great too, it makes your enemy miss more and makes sure you never miss them.

Duff own in SMT games.

Sarcasm. It's obvious they're having fun with the game, especially making jokes out of cutscenes and things they see.

Also, Jeff has his own save file and playing through that on his own. I don't think he'd do that if he didn't enjoy it.

ROFL!

 "CHILL Out! Haha"

Edited by AkasoFailsOnGiantBomb
@Vect:  Right. They're not enjoying the game, they're enjoying making fun of the game. Like some sort of video game Mystery Science Theater. Which is really weird, considering all the SMT fans they've attracted to the website. You'd think someone would get offended more often.

@FrankCanada97:  Well, yeah, but that's not the impression he gives off during the Endurance Run. Sure, he might enjoy the gameplay, but this is a JRPG. You don't really play those for the gameplay, I find, you play those for the narrative. And making fun of the characters and voice acting every chance you get isn't exactly showing your enjoyment of the narrative very much. Then again, I guess I shouldn't be complaining; otherwise, these wouldn't be as funny, right?

haha, the Kanji with alcohol thing was so random.

@AkasoFailsOnGiantBomb: They enjoy the game plenty. Jeff wrote a little piece about how much he enjoyed it. They said the game was "fantastic" in one of the Bombcasts. They're just having some fun.

they will pull through, their skills have led them this far!

FOR NARNIA!

Man, that boss fight was pretty easy compared to the nightmares in the club.

Put a helmet on her, dont hurt yourself


Brilliant !!!!


Nice one guys, that was a real chuckle-fest

Fantastic is not enough . Did they say Oblivion , Knights Of the Old Republic, Fallout 3 are hunk of garbage in comparison to Persona 4 ?
Posted by SenorDingDong

Nice work on the boss fight.  Made it look too easy. 

You're probably not thinking about it now, but for the next time Chie levels, she's going to get Counterstrike.  Counter and Counterstrike don't stack though, so be sure to ditch Counter.

@Chocobo_Blitzer:
The reason the club was so bad was because they were lacking the skills.  They kept firing light attacks at Teddie making it take forever.  Mind charge, Fire Amp and Agidyne are slightly gamebreaking at this point.  Not too terrible but most personas aren't that powerful.

Damnit. People flipping shit in the Comments section is really annoying. Its for giving a comment, not for spouting your nerd rage. Go start your own Endurance Run if you dont like this one. I doubt anyone will watch it, and that it will just be completely fucking boring.

What Jeff and Vinny do is play a game, having no experience and trying to get through it. Thats why its call ENDURANCE run. They arnt Persona 4 pros and thats whats best about ER.

Either enjoy the show or quit watching. They arnt going to change or listen to any of your shiity comments.
