Vinny: Quick Look Start to Death Time


 Power outages have no effect on
 Power outages have no effect on "pullin' a Brad."
Ya know, Brad isn't the only one who " pulls a Brad" during Quick Looks, and we give him a lot of flak for it. Inspired by Mustard's amazing list, I decided to compile lists for all the other Giant Bombers "Start to Death" times in Quick Looks, this one being for Vinny!

"Start to Death" is defined as the time elapsed between the start of the Quick Look, and Vinny dying, regardless of the method. Occasionally, there will be two times listed, the reason being written in the description for the game. Also, I kept track of not only the time of death, but also the Death Count to list how many times they died during the Quick Look.

I hope you enjoy reading it as much as I had fun putting it all together! And remember, "It's tougher to play and talk at the same time, than you think."

    Death Count - 9<p>

    vinny, as the PTX-40A, got Shinshoryuken'd the hell out of him by Jeff, as Ryu. And all the while, Vinny kept his upbeat attitude. Also, Jeff raised his handicap all the way up at the beginning of the Quick Look. Which meant he cheated.

    Vinny did turn around. ...For some reason. But we did it. We've found the weakness of the Kinect:<br>

    Backs.

  • Start to Death - 8:30<br>

    Cause - Zombies. And deciding to close the distance with himself and the zombies<br>

  • Start to Death - 12:25<br>

    Cause - Ryan<br>

    What I learned from this Quick Look: Brad and Vinny aren't that familiar with the Donkey Kong franchise and they shouldn't play co-op games with each other.

  • Start to Death - 19:38<br>

  • Start to Death - 21:14<br>

    Cause - He froze and got shot<br>

    Death Count - 1<p>

    I'm finding the usual cause of death I've been typing is "got shot".

    If only Vinny had a beard. Or a hammer. Or a bearded hammer.

    Danger, Vinny Caravella. Danger.

  • Start to Death - 55:52<br>

    Cause - Uh... he died<br>

    Death Count - 1<p>

    They went all split-screen and Vinny was behind a rock. He died, but I don't know by what.
