Full disclosure: I am creating a photodocumentary on these guys so this comment is not totally neutral, but I thought this Quick Look really didn't do the game justice. Were you both hungover?

It felt like maybe you did this QL at the end of a long day and just wanted to get it in the can and go home, because I know Ryan has played the first JD before and knows how to play, but seemed to be playing really, really badly like he'd never played it before.

I'm not saying the points you brought up were unfair, but you played the very early tutorial levels, had a quick go at the harder deleted scene ones, gave up immediately, then mocked the into vid for the multiplayer and didn't even play it!

Bit of a poor show, guys.

Like I said, full disclosure and possibly a spot of bias, and I don't think the comments you made were unfair at all, I just felt like the demoing of it is grossly unrepresentative of what the game actually has to offer.

It's like playing street fighter and just throwing a couple of fireballs, playing a single round, going "eh" and then calling it a Quick Look.

Sorry if that seems a bit sour: I'm a massive bomber fan and eat up the content on this site, as well as the bombcast, and have done for a few years now. Just thought I'd stick my oar in because this particular game means something to me :)

EDIT: I should ass that maybe it's a fault of the game's design in terms of approachability and whether it's effective enough in communicating to you what lies beyond the levels that familiarise you with the controls. I'm not saying I'm absolutely right to criticise this QL. It's just that it feels unfair to me.

This just makes me want to go and get the new Trials Evolution DLC. I love me some Trials.

I am not loving this art style. Well, not loving the gameplay itself, but that art style is the biggest drawback for me.

I just rented timed cop, you were the bad guy in Timed Cop!

I don't think I need any Joe Danger in my life right now but maybe some other time.

@McRibs: they need monies duder

I got burned buying the first Joe Danger on the recommendation of the Bomb Squad, so I'm going to pass here, even though it looks more interesting than the first game.

Anyone remember the Stuntman games? I remember liking the prospect of these kind of games but i've never liked trial and error in gaming. I prefer games that if I know the mechanics, I shouldnt have to tell the future to be able to complete them without dying/failing first. That and my memory sucks.

I live in Korea, so maybe this is just a crazy international servers thingy.... but why are there now commercials in front of quick looks?

Posted by RVonE

Man, thanks for reminding me of Motocross Maniacs! Your Joe Danger Quick Looks always reminded me of some game I couldn't quite remember and now I know which game that was. I must have spent a couple of hundred hours playing that game when I was young.

@EricSmith: What a terrible, terrible joke. In fact, I believe I must qualify it as a "joke."

The quotation marks denote my snide derision for it, you see.

This looks...boring. Think I'll pass.

Don't know what to think of this game after watching this. Loved the first game but this seems to got away from what I loved about it. Might just check it out on PS3 because of all the bonus content

Posted by mabber36

@ParadoxEngine: each level has it's own name, as do each chapter

Posted by mabber36

should've waited for the ps3 version, so you could take a look at the new content

at this point, people have already made up their minds about whether to get this game or not

Posted by ParadoxEngine

Why is the first set of levels called Joe vs Volcano at the beginning but called The Temple of Boom at the end? Did I miss something?

Wow I remember seeing a headline like 'Joe Danger: The Movie in development" or something similar. I never read the story, so I assumed they were making an actual movie based on the game.

Same here. I was really confused when I saw the Quick Look link, wondering why they would have a Quick Look for a movie.

Yea, I feel like that's a mistake on the part of the developers. You don't give your title a misleading name under any circumstances; especially if you're a niche title. The average person won't "get it".

Now, Joe Danger 2: The Movie: The game. That would have been amusing at least.

To think they were making an actual movie based on a PSN game is quite the leap if you ask me. :P

Is Giant Bomb using new hosting servers or something? I never ever used to buffer and now it happens all the time.

Getting the same thing for days now...

Also, does the game seem simpler and more on rails than the first one?

I like it when even Jeff tells Ryan to just play the game and get out of the menu.

I love a Jeff and Ryan quicklook, but I was still chuckling at that myself.

The video player will sometimes assume you want 720p video even if (like me) you have the quality set to low. Just double check the quality selection at the bottom right, next to the fullscreen button.

Ever since they switched to the CBS player I have had to buffer. But even then, 720p isn't of great quality. I just download all the videos I want to watch, now. My Giant Bomb folder is about 500 gigs.

Edit* Make that 525gb and I haven't renamed and added any videos from the last two weeks.

I 100% Joe Danger 2: The Movie and it lacks most of the greatness of the original. I'm especially pissed that they're just giving the PS3 version "10 hours" of extra content. I beat everything and got every medal in 7 hours so I'll be interested in what they are going to consider 10 hours of content.

Also not sure what Ryan was talking about with being penalized for thrusting. Thrusting is like using a wheelie on the ground vehicles it is used to keep a combo going which is super easy on a jetpack since you can be using the combo buttons all the time while in the air.

Talk about on-raiils Stuntman. In 2D, this seems like a really boring game. As long as you press the appropriate button when instructed, it's in the bag. Yay gaming! ...:/

Is that off-brand Jethro Tull they're playing during the Multiplayer introduction film?

Posted by chose

Still looks fun, but moving further away from Excitebike wasn't the best call imo.

Played it, its alright

I never played the first Joe Danger but I love this one. I may go back and play the original since everyone is saying it's better.

Posted by Generiko

man, Ryan is not good at this game.

Posted by Vitor

Never played either game but man, it sure does look nice, both technically and artistically. Very charming.

The first seconds of quicklooks have been great lately.

I want a new Stuntman game... I really loved the second one.

Lights, camera, dissatisfaction.

Edited by BlackLagoon

Apparently the new content is the original PS3 Joe Danger 1 game prototype levels, which they ended up scrapping because they were so hard barely anyone could complete them.

Are those pink Audrey II's from Little Shop of Horror in the back ground of the cop stage?

I must say that "The Movie" is one of the sweetest subtitles a title can have.

Tell that to Street Fighter.

Disappointed in this game, even though I got it for free. Not feeling it. It doesn't give you clear enough feedback on when you need to jump or duck, so it can feel a little cheap at times.

How did you get it free?
