What is an Endurance Run? They’re videos of the GiantBomb crew playing a game from beginning to end. They’re also accompanied with commentary of the hilarious and mocking variety.
What is Deadly Premonition? It’s a $25 CAD open ended Japanese survival horror game for the Xbox 360. Some say it’s plain horrible. Some say it’s one of those “it’s so horrible, it’s awesome” games. Some even say it’s better than Heavy Rain (and no isn’t banned; that’s just his awesome tag).
I haven’t played either game yet, but after watching the first couple of episodes of this Endurance Run, I’m inclined to agree with the “it’s so bad, it’s awesome” camp. It looks like an HD PlayStation 2 title, it doesn’t make a lick of sense and yet it is also strangely compelling.
Sounds like the perfect title to do an Endurance Run with.
GiantBomb’s Persona 4 Endurance Run received a lot of praise, but I never got into them since I’ve already played the game they covered. However, this is a brand new game and brand new opportunity to join in on the fun. Only GiantBomb can make a video series of someone else play a game so entertaining.
