@Aegon: I understand - it's a video game. Nothing is real. I am a dude. I don't care about 'male' video game characters smashing each others faces. I grew up with that.

Hitting 'women' - for me as a guy - adds a new 'quality' to it. It is disturbing. I am way less comfortable with that. And - again - the way Vinny does it, without hesitation, and everybody in the comments enjoys it, as it seems.

I used to debate video game hating elderly people "this is not real. It is a virtual fantasy" - yet, the older I get, the less I can stomach maybe.

And then, there's this "American culture" = violence is fine. These game mechanics cater to a certain sociopath behavior, many seem to fantasize about?

@buckybit: I think it was maybe violence against NPCs, it just happened that they were women. Come on, NPCs don't have feelings!

That ending is too good.

Jesus christ, this quick look, and the outtakes at the end.

Vinny, you are a merciless monster.

Why did Vinny had such a hard time with the combat? when the guy glows red just press Y or whatever counter just like in Batman Arkham.

Color blind.

Same reason he had trouble with the green signal stuff.

Really? I'm color blind as well but bright red colors are pretty distinguishable but I know it varies from people and I've had the similar issues with other games, at first I thought it was because he said the combat was dificult.

It definitely does vary. I have pretty low red/green color-blindness and it doesn't really affect me all that much in day-to-day life. I've been playing a lot of this game and can definitely tell when to counter. Vinny's may be more severe, or maybe he just wasn't on-point and was missing counters for reasons unrelated to color-blindness. Both are a possibility.

e: Even with severe color-blindness, 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.

Ok. Just finished watching the QL. This violence against women in video games ... I am not down with that.

I obviously don't like fun. But more disturbingly - the way Vinny enjoys it and does it randomly, without hesitation.

I know, it's a video game. But, man ... that is ... not ... my ... thing.

But violence against men is your thing?

Oh man the Vinny screwing around montage at the end is the best thing.

The magic of Giant Bomb, a Quick Look sells me on a game that wasn't really on my radar.

Vinny QL, Vinny brilliant ending.

Him dragging the NPCs around reminded me of the how funny that animation is in Prototype.

Haha, fucking great! You play this like I would Vinny, so much carnage.

Posted by Curious_George

Oh man, when Vinny ran over the poor flare girl I lost it. Fantastic quick look guys.

Whatever happened to 60fps videos for premium members? I can’t imagine the game was only running at 30 on a 6970.

And there’s been a few games recently where someone in the office has commented on how much better a game looks on PC compared to consoles—why not 1080p footage as well, rather than downscaling to 720p?

I didn't know that Vinny played loose in open world games. Or at least this game.

Hope it's better on PC. The 360 version runs god damn awful! Terrible framerate, especially while driving.

"We're going to karaoke, you're going to have fun!" Oh, this was a great quick look, and the game seems like it's got enough side stuff to vary it up. Wish the combat was a bit more fluid though.

Posted by Ares42

"He pre-ordered" amazing =D

Posted by antivanti

Looks pretty nice. Only thing I don't care for is the car physics.. why do open world games always seem to have crappy physics. If you've ever actually driven a car this kind of arcade physics makes driving really unintuitive..

Edited by PlayPaul

I love how Vinny mentions he doesn't like the fact you can drive over pedestrians after a long sequence of him draggin an innocent bystander over the street to bash his head into a wall. Oh Vinny.. you is crazy. Great Quick Look.

Edited by Draxyle

Fantastic quicklook. I feel like I'm sorta "over" these kind of open world driving games, but it's still nice to see some great stabs at it.

And the main character donning the Rico outfit is patently ridiculous. I love it.

"They seem to have gone above and beyond."

No, Brad. Those are supposed to be normal options.

For pure PC games sure, but when the games are just ported to the PC it aint that common to see options like that. Darksiders II is an perfect example.

Got this game on day 1 and I can say I'm having a lot of fun with it. I'm so glad Squenix rescued this game and I hope they get rewarded for it, although I have a nagging feeling this game will probably go down as a sleeper.

Posted by AndrewBeardsley

I really like how Vinny is leading this quick look. He's a good "host" and explains the game well.

Bravo Vinny

Dark Vinny.... this is the most evil timeline

Posted by Askherserenity

This has to be the funniest quick look ever. Oh my god. I love you, Vinny.

While I could see it getting boring, that hacking mini game is my new favourite hacking section of any game ever.

Great Quick Look

Posted by supamon

As a chinese it still weirds me out that the game has a literal "face" meter. I mean, what does a "face" meter even mean in a gaming context??

Posted by JYoung

This quick look was oh so funny!
