Important Game of the Week: Bangai-O Spirits

New video of Bangai-O Spirits cements its place as the most important retail release of the week.

  


Bangai-O Spirits is probably the most important retail release hitting store shelves this week... though to be honest, it's a slim week, so there isn't much competition. Is there even anything else out this week? Maybe the release of Bionic Commando Rearmed scared everyone else off.

Regardless of all that, this brief video on how the game allows you to exchange levels with friends is fantastic. Well-acted, well-edited... I love it to death--and I'm guessing you will, too.

Glasses guy is STOKED to receive Bangai-O levels! Also? Heart wipes!

Note to self:
Start using iPod headphones as stylus when using iPod Touch.

That has to be the best acting I have seen in years....NOT!!!!

I beat this game a few weeks back not knowing there was more to it than the 30minute story, due to it being in Japanese and all.

I've seen at least a few people repeat Ryan's much wanted desire to be able to scream at the  DS and have awesome levels come out of it. I don't think it'll work :(

The editing and acting is on par with the infamous puberty video we all watched in 5th grade.

I just died a little inside.

I know nothing about this game, but i still want to try it, Ryans idea of shouting levels to the ds is too tempting to pass up  even tough it probably won't work. Modems are hard to mimic.

Part of my humanity just got up and walked away.

I am compelled to buy this game because the sexy Asian lady told me to.

HOT ASIAN CHICKS NOT INCLUDED!

That was just rational enough for me to believe it was a legitimate awfully done video, thus making it DELICIOUS.

She should use her big girl voice.

This reminds me of a tim and eric skit, with the training video quality and scene changes along with the top notch acting. I didn't know videos like this existed anymore outside of the comedy shows that make fun of them.

Fantastic!

so, um... if I just make a note tune in an audio editing program, can i make that into a level?
how many different pitches can there possibly be?!?!

Posted by zoozilla

I'm totally looking forward to seeing what the developers think when every member of Giant Bomb picks up the game the day it releases.

Whoa, gotta ride the volume on this video. The video volume is varying like crazy.

That's, like, alot of Vs.

dude that trailer screams late night paid television, but it makes it rock

Posted by icoangel

haha cute

Posted by ahoodedfigure

Is this a professional vid?  *laughs* I love it.

Oy.  Now that I'm not giggling any more, I have to say, I wonder what audience they thought they were talking to.  I felt like this was some DS-oriented version of Barney and Friends.

Go!

There were bunnies poring out of their mouths and puppies popping out from their asses. So cute!!

Epic.

Posted by TMThomsen

That was so bad that it's hilarious. And what about noise? I highly doubt you will receive the exact same level as the host.
