Beamrider is good stuff. I can still play that game and have a good time.

Obscure reference, but the broken avatars remind me of the Junji Ito story, the Earthbound. 

I'm not really into manga in general, but goddamn is Junji Ito is awesome. He can take some of the silliest concepts and make them genuinely creepy and unnerving. Gyo might be the perfect example of that.

Atari 2600 Centipede. I had so much fun with that game back in the glory days. Sure, it looked crap compared to the arcade version but it was awesome in it's own way and worked exactly as intended. Also seeing a glimps of the Oink! cabinet in the showcase game room brought back good memories.

It's true, I am an idiot.  I own every release.

Game Room wouldn't be so bad if they didn't keep releasing shitty games nobody cares about. Some new consoles and better pricing would make game room a lot more reasonable.

would totally get halo 2600

@DarkbeatDK: 
 
Actually it was the New Yorker. Not that it matters - it's just old people with impotent rage at a changing world trying to show people that they are relevant in some way.
 
And it seems to have worked: all us GiantBomb fans now know just how relevant the New Yorker is to today's youth!

@Aarny:  but then we won't have hilarious quicklooks

You don't need to keep buying these Jeff. :P

Posted by PenguinDust

Jeff put more thought into playing 3D-Tic-Tac-Toe than the game makers put into making the game.  Wow, I can't believe anyone (not in the games press) would pay for this game.  People should enjoy Gameroom now because I doubt it will make it to the next system.

Now there's a box quote!

poor jeff

Posted by GrendelPr1me

When the most entertaining part of the video (besides Jeff and Brad of course) is the downloading screen, Game Room is in a little bit of trouble.

Posted by Peanut

Get some real arcade games in there, assholes. I really love Game Room, the concept of building your own virtual arcade, but god DAMN. I own something like 12 arcade machines, which is probably more than a lot of people, but the constant release of absolutely SHIT Atari/Intellivision games is killing it. I guess companies don't want to put "real" arcade games in Game Room when they can potentially sell the exact same thing on XBLA for $10 or $5 instead of $3.

Another great quote for the New York Times!

Yeah..... Game Room could have really been awesome. As stupid as it sounds, I won't buy this because the game room hardware hasn't been updated, they need newer consoles, and I hate that you can't actually walk your avatar around the Arcade.
Posted by durden77

I love these so much. I wish the best for game room, I haven't bought anything in a while. If Microsoft didn't treat it like an unwanted step-child and support it a little more it would probably be doing better.

Posted by KillaMaStA

I dont know if its worth 25 dollars or whatever jeff pays just to make these videos, as clearly theres nothing coming out that anyone cares about.

Posted by xxMarkIt8Dudexx

I love Beamrider. They spent more time on that lame ass 3D tic tac toe!

Posted by TwoLines

50 people played these game? Is that correct?
Is that really what has become of Game Room?
Shame. Damn shame.

Posted by sixghost

The gameroom quick look series is the TRUE endurance run.

Posted by Baal_Sagoth

The graphical style of Thin Ice looks very attractive and I'm into the gameplay anyway. 
Watching that little penguin fella valiantly marching on to sink his enemies just makes me happy somehow!

Posted by Daftasabat

Jeff is keeping Game Room alive!!

Posted by Bouke

Pretty sure there was an F for Fuel at the second dude...
Posted by Hourai

More crap games. Won't be much longer until Game Room is completely dead. 

Posted by Brendan

These videos are a true Endurance Run.  It sounds bad, but I enjoy listening to Jeff slowly get more depressed by having to do these videos every week.  It's an amusing journey to watch.
Posted by ReleaseTheAnts

 There was a purple thing up there with an F in it for like the 2nd half of the commuter demo    

Posted by tyty

I really don't know why i watch these anymore. i hardly care. but i like to watch...

Posted by Addfwyn

I wonder if they keep pushing all these things out just because Jeff keeps buying them. 
 
"We're selling these game packs to at least one person!  Someone out there likes them!"

Posted by Zeninnnnnnnn

Oh god. Two broken avatars immediately. Hahahhaah. Could not get any better.

Posted by MegaGoat

Final Fight SNES censorship in the US was great
They changed the names Damnd and Sodom to Thrasher and Katana respectively
They changed Poison and Roxy to Billy and Sid
They didn't change the doors in the first area of the game that say DICK in big letters on them

beamrider got shortchanged

Posted by gakon

"They should put out Halo 2600 on Game Room for free."
 
"Do you think they're that generous?"
 
(pause)
 
I think releasing multiple versions of a game (like Centipede, Millipede, Centipede 2600) would be fine if they did it all at once, because then they're at least being more up-front about it, and a little more nice.
 
Of course, when the release schedule is only five games a week, putting out multiples of the same thing would be a bummer...

Posted by CaptainTightPants

So when do they start releasing the games that were the reason everyone was excited for this.

Posted by NickLott

It's okay Jeff, please stop buying all of the these games. The freeplay demo will suffice for purposes of the Quick Look.

Posted by SpacePenguin

MAhN, you know who good giant bomb is?! , ill tell yeh, F'in amezin!!!!!

Posted by Pop

That game with the space ship really looked very well for atari 2600.

Posted by Rhombus_Of_Terror

oh man the graphics of the ship in centipede.... MIND BLOWING!

Posted by Sneaky_Gopher

Game Room has become a real letdown. There's nothing social about it, and the games are ok at best.

Posted by deadbynature

I still enjoy Jeff's reminiscing of old games while he plays them in these vids.

Wrong! It would literally kill me. I would die!
