What do you get when you cross an owl and a bungie cord?
 
Your answer lies in the solution to that riddle.

F that. I say Brad plays it so he can get eaten by a lion. Or trampled by an elephant. Or chased and pounced by a cheetah. Point is Brad would no doubt find a funny way to die, even if the game designers didn't intend it. Brad should work in game QA.    :P

Only in the Americas I'm pretty sure. Everywhere else its spelt with a 'k'.

For God's sake people, stop nagging the team about QLs by making pointless threads about them. They'll get around to it and put it up when they have the time.

#13 Edited by blue_meany (3 posts) -
@eroticfishcake: Hey Mate, if they didn't say in the Monday video that'd be up this week I wouldn't be wondering where it is? I'm not 'nagging the team' anyway am I.

Poor Brad, at times I think folks just want the Quick Looks to see if he gets killed.  
 
I actually find Brad's Quick Looks to be some of the most entertaining.

Weird.  I thought it was spelled with a 'k' out of some strange desire for early-to-mid '90s baditude.

Has there ever been a quick look where Brad hasn't died/failed?

How do you die in Afrika, though? You just take pictures. o_o
#20 Posted by WinterSnowblind (7613 posts) -

I think the problem with Afrika is that the appeal is very limited.  I've been playing an English import copy and absolutely love it.  But I know the majority of gamers would find it very dull.

@blue_meany: Okay, fair point then. I jumped the gun and I'm sorry for snapping at you.
#23 Posted by CL60 (16906 posts) -

Still no quick look?

#24 Posted by Jeff (3419 posts) -

The game got pushed back. Can't do the quick look until we can actually get the game. Hoping it ships this week (though I wouldn't be surprised if it slips again).

@Ahmad_Metallic: in german, and many other european languages ( and many more languages in the world ) , they spell Africa with a K ( aswell as America )

Now that we've seen they have it in the office, I'm hoping it's inevitable, I just hope it's sooner rather than later

#29 Posted by Delta_Ass (3255 posts) -

Is Afrika a game about communism? That's what the K's about, right?

#30 Posted by Branthog (7342 posts) -

I totally want to see a quick look of this (or better, an Endurance Run!). I actually just bought Afrika. I probably won't play it any time soon, but I have a feeling that this game will be like most decent Nintendo DS games. That is, you'll hear about it and think "I might buy that some day, but not right now" and by the time you get around to it, it's out of print and so few were sold that you can never find it used and you'll have to pay $100+ for it.
 
So, I'm buying it now while it's only $50, just in case.

Come on Bomb, we know that you have the game so wheres our Afika quick look!
I thought it would be a weekend quick look....

Why would you guys do that? Is there no C is the Norwegian language?

Yea there is but the K for us in this case is the same sound as the C is for you.

And putting a C there in Norwegian would make it..... 

Please don't make me remember grammar, I'm done with school. I bet there is some other Norwegian guy here who can explain it a lot better that I ever could, seeing as I'm more comfortable writing English than Norwegian.

On the plus side the people who care about marking time between things could use the time he posted and the time when the video gets posted to figure out how long it takes to render a video.

Oh Karmum, you will be surprised at the tricks in Afrika.
#45 Posted by TheHBK (5463 posts) -

Did you not see the arrival video?  That was the quick look.  Hahaha, no really, i would love to see it.  I sometimes dont get why these guys buy the games they do, what kind of money do they make?  Because they seem to buy games all the time, expensive music bundles, and this is in addition to all the games they get from publishers.  But seriously, Jeff bought Afrika?  What the fuck?

I know for a fact the game is in the Giantbomb offices.
 
The first PS3 game I ever thought was interesting deserves a look!!!!
