I actually like the idea of the "Use X on Y" where x and y depends on which item you have selected. It actually makes you think of what your doing, and prevent mindless clicking. Adventure games are way to simple, I can appreciate a little bit more complexity

Posted by KirkDouglas

This reminds me of Beneath a Steel Sky, one of my fave point n click's in a good way. A warm and fuzzy way.

It's weird how they skip all the dialogue, look for a walkthrough, and then say "I like adventure games."

But this is a different game..

Oooooof a punch to the datapouch.

Posted by xMrSunshine

I really love the artstyle, overall style, voice acting, setting and pretty much everything about it. Too bad I don't like the traditional style pointing & clicking so basically all of the gameplay...

Probably worth a buy during a steam sale or something.

I am loving, just LOVING the Giger-esque art style.

Also, I can't help but think of this:

I hate adventure games, but the premise of this seems so neat I kind of want to check it out.

Vinny said that when he plays it by himself he's going to listen to all the dialogue...they just skipped a bit to get the Quick Look moving along dude.

I sped through the opening sections of this game earlier so that I'd be able to watch this QL without spoiling the puzzles for myself. Prior to playing, I wasn't completely sold on the art style and I wasn't sure if I'd enjoy it, since I've stalled in the middle of playing my last couple of adventure games. So far, though, I'm really liking it. It's not quite at Grim Fandango levels of snappy environment-based dialogue, but it's well capable of raising a smile or two. The main duo are likeable, the art direction gives the world a great feel and the premise is clever. In particular, Horatio's response to seeing the 'endoskeleton' has some cool connotations.

I've only played about 15 minutes of Gemini Rue at this stage, having just started that the other night too, but so far this game has a more compelling opening setup. The voice acting, at least, is much better than it is in GR.

Abe Goldfarb plays another floating adventure game sidekick. I guess it's his niche.

I found it funny Vinny and Brad didn't even consider WRITING IT DOWN.

I wish more games would encourage that, even if its in digital form.

I've played about four hours of the game and there is at least one instance where you need to write down details of a puzzle, so that kind of thing is in here. I'm really enjoying it, but then this is the kind of game I love.

Moving along to what? It's an adventure game. The dialogue and atmosphere is pretty much all there is.

PrimordiA, not PrimordiUM, come on Vinny... multiple times too :(

Leviathon!

Posted by august

The tone of the banter really conflicts with the art and setting in a weird way, but I'll be picking this up just to see where the plot goes.

i think another premium feature should be "adventure time with vinny" (yes not based on the cartoon :p) in which we watch vinny and brad play through these adventure games.

please no more lazy content locked behind a premium subscription.

Hmm.. you don't sound like a satisfied customer. Sucks that you have no choice but to pay for it.

So excited for this game.

This is a breath of fresh air. I'm sold completely on this game, and I'm not usually an adventure game player.

"A Shrine That thing is a Giant Bomb!"

BOOOOOOMMM Drop Mic QL Ovar!

Posted by apglazer

Game is fantastic! Roughly 2 hours in. I did have to check a walk-through a couple times since I was confused on the objective/didn't pixel hunt hard enough, but nothing major. The story is starting to open up and I'm reeeeally into where it's going. I dig Crispy's banter as well, so that's a plus for me :D

In the future snarky people on the internet will be replaced by actual snarky robots.

Logan Cunningham up in this piece!

Edited by BaconGames

I just wish that Logan's voice wasn't so similar to Rucks in Bastion. Unless Logan doesn't have much of a range as a voice actor and/or that's what the devs wanted anyway. Sad because it's the one thing that sticks out to me. The voice of Crispin is also a past Wadjet Eye voice (he was in Gemini Rue at least) but the writing and delivery is fresh enough that I'm loving his character. Haratio just feels too much like it's a Logan in a booth rather than the character. Then again, there were some spots where the character worked just fine so maybe it's a question of getting used to it. That or it's doomed to be an inconsistent experience for me.

Giant Bomb is your number one source for Naked Cartoon Pussy (TM).

Was "bugs and glitches!" just used as an interjection?

Posted by posh

anyone catch the dialogue in the game where he says "giant bomb"? that's in a few games. feels deliberate

I'm not into adventure games but I should at least watch this on YouTube or something. The art really appeals to me. The zany robots, not so much, but the premise is cool. I'd be interested to see where the story goes.

I agree, but to be fair, Rucks' accent was way thicker than Horatio's. They both sound gritty and the general tone of the voice is the same, but then again it does fit the character here and goes well with the dystopiab surroundings. There's some sound design stuff going on, to make him sound robotic I suppose, that's making the voice sound way deeper than it actually is.

I don't think I have the patience for this kind of adventure game anymore.

Posted by Icemael

Reminds me of Beneath a Steel Sky with the brownness and the snarky robot sidekick built by the main character.

Posted by Dark_Lord_Spam

This game seems pretty cool, potentially, but the amount of pixel-hunting in this quick look was savage. I don't know if I should encourage that kind of design with a purchase.

LOGAN!

@Icemael: yeah, looks like an amiga game.

Posted by MrBubbles

i really like adventure games like this and the voices are pretty awesome sounding so i'll get this

Posted by mrcalifonte

Looks like a game id enjoy after playing the walking dead

Posted by floofmania

excellent subheading

Posted by daedelus

I feel like if they are going to make it low rez, they should throw a stylized filter on it like in Lone Survivor, I'd like to play this game but I know without a button to highlight what is clickable I'd miss something that blends in and just get frustrated and stop playing.

Edited by HerbieBug

That is an fantastic art style. Really digging the look of this game.

Too bad I hate point and click adventure games with burning fiery passion.

Posted by ep

I'm sure it's been said before, but who doesn't love a good Brad/Vinny QL?

Posted by Gerhabio

I didn't like how they went through the game like they hated it.

Too many attempts at using the torch.

Oh, well. I still enjoyed the QL.

Posted by billyhoush

Wish this was out on mac cause I'm too lazy to bootcamp.

Posted by Winternet

So let's get this straight: Does Wadjet Eye just make great games?

Posted by ack

I immediately went and bought this game and now I'm up way to late, thanks giant bomb!

Posted by JackSukeru

I'm not super into these point and clickers. The stories can seem pretty fun but they're kind of slow and it always sucks when you get stuck. That said if I were to play another one it would probably be this, I liked Machinarium so I guess I'm into postapocalyptic worlds starring robots.
