Quicklook!?!?

They really need to do a quicklook. I'm playing this right now and loving it. It's very funny and the action is great.  Big Bo is a shoe in for "character I'd most like to party with" this year.

Jeff said he has a hard time finding it at retailers, but they'll do one once they get it. Amazon also doesn't do release date delivery for it, what gives? It's arriving next week for me :/

@Shun_Akiyama: Same here. I work at Wal-mart and while we didn't get TONS of copies we did get enough that seems like you should be able to just waltz in and nab it.

having a ton of fun with this game and think its deserving of more attention. hopefully GB ends up making a quick look for it.

A quicklook right about now would be very useful. I am very curious about the mp especially. Maybe a TNT if it's any good too.

This game is f'n awesome! and the ending is so good, plus they steal the new movie trope and have a ending after the credits! this game definately deserves more coverage, for god sakes gamespot doesnt even have a review for it...lame

I'm wondering if it was a limited run because of Sega worrying about low sales. That said, I've heard some good things and I look forward to a quicklook whenever it happens.

binary domain will probably be the game i play after ME3, seems interesting enough to give it a shot.

But I'm sure we'll get a Mass Effect 3 quicklook, a game that you already know if you are or not going to buy when it comes out. But a game like Binary Domain that people are curious about? =(

I would've liked to see a Quick Look, to at least give the game some exposure. This seems one of those games that is pretty good, but nobody is playing it.

We did get our obscure/unknown PC games worth this week with Vinny, Dave and Drew being the only ones in the office, but it would've been nice to see BD in a Quick Look.

Isn't that pretty much SEGA's MO for every title that is the least bit interesting? Silently sneak the games onto a few shelves and wonder why their daring investment didn't pay off? ^^

Jeffrey said that it most likely won't happen.

I hope they talk about it in the future bombcasts, though.

I do hope we do get a quick look of it since Binary Domain is pretty much an unknown quantity to most people. Even if it's a late quick look I'm sure it will be helpful and informative since the game will mostly fly under the radar with Mass Effect 3 in the horizon.

They're seriously not doing a quick look for it...? That sucks. This is a game that could really benefit from it.

Yeah, Jeff confirmed on Formspring that the QL probably isn't happening

That's an really weak excuse from Jeff.. He can't check at a different store, than those he usually checks? Or, say.. Just order the game online?

So... has Jeff not heard of Amazon or something? That's a pretty BS excuse.

I couldn't care less if the quick look's late. It's better than no QL at all, especially for this particular game. Make it happen, GB! Your audience respectfully requests it!

...seriously, please.

WOW easy there buddy, it's just one game.

Well you can cancel you your subscription if you want, but I'm really happy with all the content and I'm definitely not going to stop my support for the best game site, heck one of my favorite sites actually, just because of one game.

Somehow I don't think it's a big priority for them right now (i.e. GDC coming up, Mass Effect 3 review, etc). Also, they'll probably do a quick look of it eventually since we've seen plenty of situations where the crew does a quick look several weeks after a game comes out.

Yeah I'm sorry Jeff, but that's a pretty lame excuse. I'm sure you guys got GDC to worry about so I guess I don't blame you, but it'd be pretty shitty if you guys just completely ignore this game because you couldn't get a copy before GDC happened, especially when it's got some internet buzz around it and people would like to know about it. I mean FFS, Red Dead Redemption at least got a Quick Look...

I'm guessing they did it too late, and now have to wait for it to get through editing before posting it. It'll probably be up next week.

That was a runner up for GOTY though

RDR got a review, but it was never posted b/c Brad couldn't finish in time (they got the game late or something)

But I doubt BD is gonna get some love running smack into Mass Effect 3 and Street Fighter x Tekken.

The demo convinced me to buy it, I like shooting me some robots and the characters seem entertaining. Weirdly I'll end up playing this before ME3.

Adding my voice to the "I really would like to see a quick look of this game" pile. Yes, even if it's late - better than never.

Yeah, a quicklook would be nice. I'll often go back and look up old quicklooks when I find a cheap game I'm not familiar with... I kinda find having a comprehensive catalog of them more valuable than the reviews.
