I love their frustration at losing the race after Vinny kept killing his forward momentum by doing sideways car checks, haha.

one thing that can be a little bit of a pain is the icons on the mini map don't always show you where you exactly need to go for example when Vinny wanted to do Karaoke he went to the icon but it doesn't show that you have to be inside the club and he had gone past it, a few other icons for stuff are like that it's more a general location.

Those arrows in the world telling you where to turn, I think they first appeared in SR The 3rd, are the best thing to improve open world games in a while. Not constantly staring at the mini map makes driving in these games way more enjoyable. I hope Rockstar borrows it for GTA V.

I have it on my PC with all the visual settings maxed out and it looks absolutely amazing. One of the best looking games this year so far, bar none.

I had no idea what this game was, but I'm definitely picking this up next pay day based on how fun it was just watching Vinny play.

lindness, you could learn to counter in this game as enemies will do a little "I'm about to attack you!" animation. I know people with much worse color-blindness than mine that use tactics such as these on other games that use color coding for gameplay.

I am pretty sure this is how color blindness works.

I would continue paying premium money for a feature called "Vinny's Sandbox." Just put Vinny in some open world for an hour and let him be.

Great ending! It's hilarious that Vinny has a problem with running people over, but has no problem savaging an innocent woman's head against a door until one or the other breaks

One of the best Quick Looks of the year and not because it was funny (it was) but because it was very informative. Vinny should head Quick Looks more often.

Vinny should helm everything, especially gravity defying modes of transit.

No sleepy dogs in the game or passed out pandas...what the hell? Game looks decent between the crazy of Saints Row3 & GTA. Definitely loved the end with what felt like an outtake/blooper reel of the quick look & hope that more of that gets into future quick looks. Was curious about the game but after seeing this I'll definitely get it (yes through gamefly, which I actually like using though I try to limit myself to a game per week before sending it back so thankfully not as bad as Vinny).

The main dude in this game reminds me of Sean Coonce. Especially with the track pants.

Forget bows, 2012 is turning out to be the year of surprisingly great games.

I'm going to risk everything by suggesting ALL Quick Looks should have similar endings!

(I know how hard that would be for games that don't allow such madness.)

Fucking hell... it depresses me just how inferior my PS3 copy is. The frame-rate in particular can barely hang on during cutscenes ='(

Also I totally recognise those hacking ''blop'' noises from Human Revolution.

A very surprising game to sneak up on during a relatively dry month for games. Pretty decent PC port from what I can see, wonder how it compares to the kind of stylistic choices made in the Chinatown Wars. The developer also deserves much kudos to see this project through despite a very rough state of game development in Vancouver.

I'm glad Brad pointed out the weird disconnect between Vinny's love of slamming people's faces into things but not running them over.

There seems to be a lot of polarizing opinions about this game. I might wait for the steam sale. I'm not completely sold, yet.
