Why the **** have we not gotten a QL of this ?

Seriously. Just check out that shit.

This is simply too amazing. I'm tempted to snag a copy on eBay after seeing this trailer. AMAZING.

edit: damn, I forgot. The Wii is not region-free.

Because it came out in 2008. That's about it.

It was never released in North America.

...Yep.

Giant Bomb launched in 2008. The game came out in October of that year.

Yeah, damn the Wii for not being region-free. Although this has not stopped Ryan from importing that naughty Wii game from Germany; the one in which you smack other people's butt with the Wiimote. Although, true, this was in the very early days of Giant Bomb. They did not have the setup that they had years later.

sigh. I want to play this game. Badly.

I was hoping someone was still releasing Wii games. I like how this game has terrorists, volcanoes, tsunamis and a freaking asteroid all one game.

@NegativeCero: I know, right !? This is directly up Ryan's alley.

#8 Posted by dungbootle (2458 posts) -

@AuthenticM: What I mean is they don't really have time to QL anything other than recent releases. If they do anything with older games it's always stuff from a decade ago or older.

I have had this game for ages and yet it sits there on the shelf, never touched. Perhaps I should break it out and give it a go?

I gotta say I ususally hate these threads but my god that looks INCREDIBLE!

#11 Posted by Sackmanjones (4785 posts) -

The last 5 seconds of the video was my face the whole time while watching

I've seen dirt-cheap copies of this game in stores so many times but never bought it since I heard it wasn't good. Now I regret it.

We obviously need to lobby for a Quick Look Throwback, at the very least.

The game looks like shit, but I could see some awesome moments coming from the crew (or anyone with a good sense of humor) playing it through its entirety. A live stream of them playing through this would be crazy. Also, I'm pretty sure the president pooped his pants at the end.

Because you censored a curse word.

@BlastProcessing: Them's the rules.

Ha! I recognize that main character, some guy here has a picture of him as an avatar.

@AuthenticM:

Make it region free via the Twilight hack, if you've never updated one.

That was a Playstation Move game.

That guy looks like he didn't ask for this.

#24 Posted by JerichoBlyth (1044 posts) -

By far the greatest trailer for a videogame I have ever seen lol

#25 Posted by Sarumarine (2293 posts) -

I first heard about this game through the "Two Best Friends Play" YouTube series. And I have to say, from what I saw, I think it would be great if Giant Bomb drummed up some excuse to take a look at it.

#26 Posted by Sean2206 (264 posts) -

I got it when it came out and in my opinion the game is pretty good, not anything amazing but I genuinely enjoyed it beyond its silly craziness which is also awesome. Damn after watching the trailer I really want to go replay it now. Such a good, fun, silly game.

If I understand correctly, this game is about some dude trying to rescue a girl in the middle of the 2012 and deep impact movies while there's a nuclear threat agains the US. Oh japan, you so crazy

@thebunnyhunter: If I were to guess, he doesn't, hence the massive tidal wave that engulfs the city.
