This is a perfect example of what happens when a good idea has its throat cut by sudden critical de-funding. When the money-guys say "fuck it, cut our losses - ship it and move on".

This. For a game that is trying to convey a certain mood, it certainly does a lot to kill that feeling.

Reminds me of watching Brad play Deadly Premonition while Ryan shouts instructions at him :(

I'm going to finish the game today and try to put a review together

Edited by ZmillA

I'm about halfway done with the game and really enjoying it. Playing on survivor my first time through(you still get more than enough supplies as long as you explore).

definitely not a bad game

and as someone who has played most of the game I can tell you that Brad is bad at it. At the point he is in the game he has already been told to keep his gun pointed at guys to hold them up and instead he just starts running around asking what he is supposed to do.

@SSully: Assuming america is about 3000 miles long and you walk at about 3 miles an hour. You can make it!....just need to give up sleeping (and the aforementioned food/water). oh and don't deviate off the path. Never deviate off the path.

According to Google Maps it would only take 40 days to walk across the country

Google Maps doesn't factor in you taking time to search for food and water while also trying to fight for your life from marauders

Sounds like a stellar example of a 3-star game if I'm hearing Brad right. And man, that ending was a huge "fuck you". No one thought to put in a lost-progress warning?

I guess I'm alone on this, but I think it looks fucking awesome. Post-apocalyptic setting with minimalist combat and extremely stringent survival mechanics? Yes please.

I just hope it does well enough to warrant a PC release.

AH, guess you haven't seen this.....

I lost interest, and they lost a sale, the second I saw that post. It's a shame because I was super excited.

I really shouldn't take this personally. It is the internet after all. But I can't help it.

So saying your game looks "fucking awesome" and hoping that it does really well and makes enough money that the developer might one day port it to my preferred platform is "bitching".

Fuck you too, Ubisoft. And an extra special fuck you to Stanislas Mettra. Eat a dick, you douche nozzle.

Xeirus, thanks for pointing out this article to me. It really bummed me out, but at least now I won't waste any of my time waiting for a PC port of this game.

He honestly came across frustrated about his game more than anything. I got the feeling he wasn't very confident in his game . Oh well, I guess that's what happens when 100 different people work on a game.

this is one of the most bland looking games in recent memory for me.

Brad is one cold motherfucker. Remind me not to ever threaten him during the post-apocalypse.

Posted by Evenstar

I think this game look very intresting. I like to climb on thing and it has survival and exploring like horror games but whit out the horror even though I enjoy those games but it is nice to not have the heart in my throat all the time and never know what kind of monster that is around the next corner.

Posted by laserbolts

Sorry you lost your save Brad that sucks. This game looks like crap.

Posted by BonOrbitz

Six years for this? What a bummer... It doesn't look fun.

Posted by Saganomics

So I guess this is pretty much that dogshit Bear Grylls game with post-apocalyptic window dressing?

Looking forward to drinking my own piss in between dishing out QTE fatalities or whatever.

Hey here's a thought, how about instead of watching a quick look here and bitching about Brad or Patrick or Vinny you guys just go over to IGN or gametrailers and watch a trailer. The quick looks are there to show of some of the game and be entertaining and the guys are always entertaining, quit complaining just cause it's the internet and the person can't bitch slap some sense into you.

+1, this could cover about 90% of the bitching on every podcast/quick look

I like a lot of what they're going for. As a fan of some post apocalyptica, I'm definitely interested in seeing how this goes. Stories never matter as much as the atmosphere in PA survival games, and this one looks like it has enough. This made me wonder when Gary Whitta is going to start sitting in on some of these.

Posted by The_Big_Rough

Damn this game looks like crap, who care about them cancelling the PC version.

Posted by Porkellain

This stamina mechanic seems like Shadow of the Colossus' one brought to the extreme. I also recall Brad having a bad time at SotC quick look and people getting mad at him, story is cyclic lol.

Man some of you guys are brutal. I thought Brad's gameplay was fine. It is a puzzle game at points, and it seemed to have ramped up the difficulty right when he started the QL. Takes some time to adjust and try to talk to Vinny at the same time. The game itself seems interesting, not sure it is a must-buy though.

Oh my god, I was sighing so hard at that part they gave up on and went to a different chapter.

I'm trying to figure out, a day after watching his, why it has leaderboards.

I think leaderboards are a requirement for XBLA, like having 200 achievement points.

There was nothing wrong with Brad.

Posted by Elazul

I don't mean to offend anyone with this highly controversial opinion, but this game doesn't look so good.

Posted by shodan2020

Looks pretty good... but I don't know if I would shell out $15 for it.

Posted by inappropriate_touchscreen

This game actually looks neat. $15 seems like a good price just for the novelty I think. Now I wish I hadn't let my brother borrow the 360.

Oh, man, that's brutal. On the bright side this was a great quick look, it gave me a really good idea of what to expect from the game and really piqued my interest. I appreciate your sacrifice, Brad!

Posted by simian

Sort of reminds of the Alone in the Dark remake from a couple years ago. Good ideas, poor implementation.

@docStrangluv: really cool future in this game..

I could care less about how Brad plays a game in a quickook. However, I hope he isn't the one reviewing this game, because it doesn't deserve the low score he's likely to give it just because he doesn't know how to play it. Vinny was polite during this, but I bet he wanted to tell Brad to give him the controller cause he doesn't know what the fuck he's doing

I really like how you said that even when vinny said he missed something as well.

Posted by dropabombonit

This game looks pretty bad, also doesn't help that it came out on the same day PS Plus members can get Journey. Also another small indie game called Mass Effect 3

Posted by GrandMarshal

This game looks interesting. shame Brad wasn't even trying

Why Brad...just why.

I'm actually more jazzed about this than Mass Effect 3.

Yep me too.

Posted by oasisbeyond

Brad is awful, he obviously had to go where he told him to jump... He never tried. Had to hang off ledge and jump left... VOILA... lol. Play some Tomb Raider it helps.

Posted by Stahlbrand

What a terrible save system. Wish this game executed better and with less fugly textures (but memory constraints on XBLA, etc).

Was the beached ship a matte background-type layer, because it didn't look quite 'real' in the game's space.

Posted by SharkMan

poor brad, that save game thing really sucks
