York has a sub machine gun.  Raincoat killer has an axe.  Shoot him in the face - case closed.

If Brad and Ryan get this worked up over the zombies of Deadly Premonitions then they should do an Endurance Run of a Resident Evil game, oh wait, Ryan can't play those games in the dark.

I knew that the story would get good, and now that brad is using something other than that damn 9mm the combat is a little more bearable to watch!

"What a hell... 
 
Even Becky has been killed." 
 
My reaction to that scene was almost exactly the same as Brad and Ryan's.  I can't wait until they see the end of the next chapter.  It makes what just happened positively tame by comparison!

Every time an endurance runner shoots a destructable item instead of meleeing it, a Giant Bomb community member cries.

I don't get it, what is wrong with this statement? He's not saying "What the Hell", he's saying "this is such a hellish place".

Actually, they didn't really try to stop him. I think they were all a bit scared and confused, with a convulsing half-dead woman in front of them, so I don't really blame George.

Damn, I must say that along with Brad and Ryan this game has me hooked. I wanted to spoil it for myself last week but I'm really glad I didn't. Shit is getting good.

I get the impression that sometimes when brad is aiming, like when he is looking to change from free aim to lock on on a zombie doing the limbo, he is actually physically looking down at the controller to see which button to press. The pause is way too long if he knew where the buttons were and could just press them.

For all of its seemingly poor design that was actually a really intense moment.

I've been seeing its true colours as a sub-par game since the first episode, but I will admit that I found myself wondering during this episode what the game would be like if it had been developed by competent designers. It's actually a shame that a genuinely good story like this one got stuck in a game with awful voice acting and crappy gameplay.

Becky whilst on the verge of dying didn't move while York was there but then she started struggling when Thomas tried to cut it and George seemed pretty adamant about cutting the wire even when York said not to.

@Deusoma:  The vo for the main characters is pretty good, actually. The minor characters are pretty bad, but that's par for the course for a video game.

I found Brad and Ryan ripping on George's mess up to be pretty hilarious. But I'm right with them, this episode is genuinely intriguing. But then, I kinda like the weirdness of the game in general. Rough patches aside (namely, whenever you actually have to shoot things), it seems interesting.

That was the best part of the episode for me. Thomas hurling, way to end the chapter in style.

@Deusoma: You know, it might sound kind of stupid, but maybe it is sometimes a good thing that we don't get every story delivered in a triple-A, rewarding-all-the-time, super overproduced fashion. Of course, if you pay for the experience you want the best kind of experience, and I understand that. But maybe our artificial experiences have become too artificial and perfect (every single time) lately ... bla. 
 
Oh, and to add one more thing: the voice acting in this game is well above average. York, especially, has a very good voice that almost never seems to over- or underact. What utterly destroys that, though, is the awful lip synching, which is probably hand tailored for the japanese version.

I'm glad it was developed by access games - people who were genuinely putting their souls in it, all those triple AAA titles(with millions behind it) are so similar. 
here we have something totally unique, unlike anything out there with its own charm. 
voice acting is actually more competent than multi million productions(hi heavy rain!).
and gameplay is solid, but you didn't play it so I leave it at that. 
and people who will actually finish it/ see endurance run will fondly remember it, unlike "triple AAA" titles with forgettable story and characters.
success!

@Princess_Isabela: 
You're kidding, right? You are not literally saying that you believe the fact that this game is not an AAA title is a good thing? 
 
I don't mean to be a dick, really, but be reasonable; you have to admit, for example, that if Access Games had the same budget for Deadly Premonition that Bungie Studios had for Halo 3, Deadly Premonition would be vastly improved. The idea that being big in the industry hurts a title is silly.

Shit has just got real. It's amazing how this game varies in attitude - one moment you're having happy fun times at the diner, then there's a brutal FUCKING murder happening on a Saw level the next.

Had Access Games operate with bigger budget at hand, it would have made it more refined and polished, sure. 
But if you'd give this project to anyone else(any big studio with unlimited funds), this wouldn't be the game it is.
Just don't say Access Games aren't capable developers, that's just ignorance. 
Given sales of this game, I'd say we should expect more goodness from them(with higher production values). 
I have right now Dragon Age Origins, Mass Effect 2, God of War 3 still to finish, yet I'm still hooked on Deadly Premonition(going through the side quests), because it's genuinely captivating(tons of things to do) and has one of the best stories/memorable cast in Video Games we've seen in a long time.
