Oh man this alone would make me want to get a Kinect. This was brilliant.
Tim Schaeffer, you are a genius! Also, really cool too.
That's the most entertaining Quick Look I've seen lately.
I wont a kinect only for this.
I want MOOOOORE. They should TNT this shite.
Best video I've seen on here in a while, that was awesome.
Tim Schaefer has put out the coolest games since he became a dad.
i totally had passed on watching this video and the game wasnt even on my radar until i decided to watch it. SOLD. i bought the game on a second tab through the XBLA site before the video even finished. smart marketing to targeted audiences WORKS. also my gf will finally play a kinect game with me and not get self-conscious or annoyed by broken tracking 4 minutes in? MOAR UFF DIS PLEEZ.
I was very disappointed when I bought this game, ran to the ball pit and saw no giant bombs or will balls. :C
I had to watch this again it's that good.
Fuck every game that isn't this game.
@Duffyside: Chat room exploded when the Will Smith balls fell, great moment.
All I could say during this was "YES YES YES YES" with the biggest smile on my face. This should be great while heavily inebriated.
I like Tim Schaefer. I like Giant Bomb. I like Tim Schaefer on Giant Bomb.
Fuck every Kinect game that isn't this game.
This so makes me want to get a xbox
That's quite weird game thingy. If I had kinect, I would get this.
Double Fine are the best.
I am seriously going to need to try this with the kids at the kindergarten were I work.
This comes out on my birthday! I now know what were doing at my party :D definite day 1 buy for me.
well, time to go buy a kinnect.
So...do Kinects work with trampolines?
Yawn. I doubt anyone here would give a shit about this mildy-interactive screen-saver compilation if T.S.'s name wasn't attached on it and he didn't provide GB with an in-person demo...
Disappointed by the reaction to the Will Smith balls. I came here just to watch it after seeing ILM. Guess they were all-laughed-out.
Man Tim sorta' looks like a smaller version of Ryan.
It's wierding me out.
I know right? I was thinking that during the whole video.
Can I get the Will Smith expansion in the retail game?
I keep rewatching this for the acid dance party.
THis actually kinda makes me want a kinect.
Patrick is just the worst. The worst.
I now have a reason to buy Kinect. Thank you Double Fine.
For some reason Schaffer always looks like he's creeped out by every word in an English thesaurus. I'm sure he was baited into coming by the alcohol. Looks like a fun time for all.
Patrick as a hot dog was pretty awesome, as was the Giant Bomb ball pit.
So freakin' awesome :)
Yep. Double Fine just solved it. Kinect can only reach its potential if developers make games specifically to utilize the sorts of things that Kinect inherently does well -even if those things were in no way originally intended by Microsoft-, rather than trying to force it to kinda sorta half work at mimicking controller based gameplay styles with motion control.
This is what Kinect games should be.
10 bucks? 18 of these for just 10 bucks??
I was just about to complain that they weren't making the obvious Terminator reference, and BOOM, there it is.
From all the descriptions, I didn't imagine it would actually be this fun.
Tim is a combination of rorie and Ryan.
I love how Double Fine makes a tech demo and people go crazy over it.
HURR YEAH IF IT'S ON KINECT IT MUST NOT BE FUN AT ALL
You and I both know that if something like this came from a small unknown company people would trash it to no end. Whether Kinect is fun or not has nothing to do with it, I don't know how you managed to conclude that from my comment.
It's been stated by other users previously in the thread: Nobody except Double Fine would make a game like this and come at it with such a brazen attitude towards the shortcomings of the hardware they're developing on, such a degree of self-awareness and their standard lack of seriousness towards their product. I hold no real love for anything Double Fine, but this looks interesting at least, and they're coming at it on a price point that sounds right with the perfect mentality that this is not a game, this is a set of activities.
And they managed to drag a laugh out of me with a simple achievement name, so, there's that.
I HATE DANCING!
I always thought that I would have to live the rest of my life in sadness and rejection. But now I can dance without having to dance??!!
TECHNOLOGY, HERE TO IMPROVE LIVES!
Tim Schaeffer looks like Ryan with less facial hair.
Also, I'm the editor of most of the TV commercials they made fun of at the beginning :P
That means you must die.
TOO MANY BALLS.
you know im not that impressed with the Kennett stuff some of its ok but this now this looks innovative and a hell of a lot of fun...
If there was ever something that was absolutely necessary wherever alcohol is possibly involved...
I just really wanna cry at how awesome this shit is. Just goes to show that Tim Schafer is still one of the greatest minds in video games today.
Totally lost it at the Will balls, HAHA!
God, is it just me or does Tim really look like a muppet?
I really started noticing that after the Sesame Street game.
This is one of the best Quick Looks /ever/.
I WANT LAVA ON MY APARTMENT FLOOR
