That is my new favorite thing they started doing this year. They are tapping into the magic of the persona 4 endurance run in those quicklooks. I hate all sports and I've watched the madden quicklook like five time, because it's so fucking funny. All the other ones are really funny as well, but the madden one is the best. WWE quicklooks are a separate category. I look forward to the new WWE quicklook every year, they are alway amazing.

The wwe quicklook like Christmas comes but once per year.

Yeah man, the sports QLs are amazing. Honestly, if Alex were there to do them, I think the entertainment value would plummit, since he already knows so much about them.

Ever since the SNES stream it felt like something special. I wanted nothing to do with sports QL's here, but hot damn... I was excited to see soccer on the Wii U.

Jeff and Vinny best QL/GB Commentary Team? Probably

makes actually kinda glad they don't have a "sports guy" . This is better.

"I am Pele, if Pele was from space."

A loosely remembered quote from (last?) years soccer quicklook. Always gold.

Just watched it my for the second time last month (first time was in July) and even though I'm currently playing through Golden I kinda want to watch it for a 3rd time, I think I have a problem...

Vinny has always been behind the cameras. He's barely in any live stream videos.

#18 Edited by Nightriff (5148 posts) -

@McGhee: I thought they did a balanced job of him on camera and him behind camera doing crazy shit. I just think if they did the Fortune Street TNT now and replaced him with Brad it would've been fucking brutal and the worst thing. He basically kept it cheerful and funny the whole 3 hours and was comedic gold.

No, Vinny in front of the camera has always been rare. I know, because like you, I've always wanted to see him more. But at the same time, he always finds a way to get his personality to come forward with his crazy use of affects.

He's totally there in spirit. You can always tell when he starts getting bored, because the TNT suddenly goes batshit insane. Hell, I'd say TNT is secretly the Vinny Show.

That reminds me of how glad I am that Alex is on reviews and not Quick Looks anymore. I don't mind his personality or voice or anything, I just find I don't agree with him at all regarding the way he reviews certain middling games (I guess I agree with his scores for super terrible games). So at least now I can just not read his reviews; I don't like skipping QLs. For example, I just couldn't disagree more with his Kirby's Epic Yarn review. Yes, the game's visual style is crazy inventive, probably top 10 for this entire generation. But even that accolade is not enough for me to overlook how PAINFULLY DULL it is to play after about the second world. Kirby games have always moved kinda slow, but it brought it to a new level, plus no power absorbing didn't do the game any favours.

Spookin' with Scoops is the new Question of the Week.

OK, that's harsh, but I wish Patrick would just start doing solo Endurance Runs of horror games since a bunch of them are pretty short. Getting 90 minutes into each game then stopping just feels like a waste of my time.

I think those quick looks become more hilarious when you actually do like sports, or know quite a bit about sports.

I'd be interested to see exactly how long the P4 ER actually was, like the time of all the episodes added together. I know their final in game time was 99:59 (which is amazing considering that game goes over 100), but there were also times they left the game idle when they were recording episodes back to back, so that could have padded the game clock. Also, there were times where they died, so obviously that time wasn't counted on the game clock.

What I am getting at here, is that I think some industrious duder should add all the episode times together and get the final running time.

I think that during some livestream they said that Drew is actually the one that does more crazy shit than Vinny, but we can never know for sure. It's just that whenever something funny happens, everyone always thinks that Vinny did it.

That one was also good because it felt like he actually had focus and wanted to beat it, similar to his enthusiasm with seeing the endings of Clock Tower. I just don't like it when he goes all ADD and only plays a game until he starts to get bored with it, then suddenly plays half an hour of something else. Sure, they can't all be winners, and I don't want him to slog all the way through a Penumbra game if he's not enjoying it, but a bunch of the horror games he has played (Clock Tower, Lone Survivor, Friday the 13th) are actually quite short, and it'd be nice if he would just commit to finishing one of them instead of flitting around constantly.

I do enjoy the hilarity of their sports Quick Looks, but sometimes I just wish they had sports QLs with people who, you know, actually know about sports and sports games.

Same here, wish they got some current information about the teams they were playing as. Jeff literally had no idea that he was playing as the Stanley Cup Champs in the L.A. Kings during the NHL quicklook. 
 
But overall, these sports Quick Looks with Jeff and Vinny have been quite amusing.

What I can't stand is his constant desire to describe what is going on with the game. If he just played them and acted like there wasn't "x" number of people watching, I would be way more interested. Seeing him get scarred and tense is what the feature should be, not who made it and what they were trying to do at this part and blah blah blah blah blah. So unless he talks that way to himself while he plays alone I stand corrected.

I think LTSmash is onto something with having Ryan there. Because almost anyone talking to themselves for 90 minutes is going to seem like an idiot, but I don't think I want the feature to just be silence for minutes at a time, and then occasional shouts from Patrick when something spooks him. But without a copilot, there's no one to talk to or bounce things off of. It's kind of the reason that 99% of Let's Plays are insufferable; most people just cracking jokes to themselves/the invisible audience to fill dead air just sound like complete dolts while they do it.

Also having Ryan there would make up for the fact that it's been like 14 months since they abandoned the Whiskey Media Happy Hour, yet Ryan hasn't done any kind of premium content. I know he MCs the podcast and TNT and sits in on seemingly half the Quick Looks, but c'mon, he couldn't do something?

Agree, the Friday the 13th one is the only one I sat all the way through because Ryan was at least entertaining. I think the silence only works when it is live so we can talk with community about the game while Patrick is just playing, doesn't work as well when it isn't live obviously, still a work in progress. And Ryan in the few RPCG he's done are great. Ripper and Burn Cycle(?) are second only to Phantasmagoria in the Premium Content Hierarchy.
