Was there a Quick Look of The Lost and the Damned...?

#1 Posted by Ockman (217 posts) -

So, obviously, I'm looking through the site, and looking through all GTAIV videos, and I don't see one, but I feel like I remember seeing a Quick Look of The Lost and the Damned done on this site. It's driving me nuts, because I can remember watching someone play the opening parts of the game...do some of the slow driving on the motorcycles with the gang early in the game, and that's it. I remember dudes talking over the footage, and I keep thinking that it was Ryan that did it too...
yet I look and look on here, and I don't see that they've done a quick look of the game. Am I going crazy? I've never owned it, I never knew anyone who bought it, and since giantbomb started, this has been my one and only favorite video game website, so I can't imagine seeing something else on another website. 
Am I completely off, or was there a quick look when it came out, but for some reason got taken down? I really wanted to check it out again, because I'm thinking about picking up one of the DLC expansions, and I just always like to check with giantbomb before I make any commitments.

I dont' recall one.
They did a GTA4 QL back in the day, but I don't think they've done one since.
And there's also not one on the GTA4 page.

Yeah, there definitely was one. I vividly remember Ryan really liking Billy's voice and they said "BROTHERHOOD" in a comical fashion over and over.

I do recall there being a Quick Look for TLAD. I remember Ryan getting blown away by a barrel after shooting it and making a crack about barrels finally being able to explode with the download.

Wow I totally missed that, but then I thought I'd seen every quick look.
I stand corrected.

Okay, mystery kind of solved. Here is a link to a news story that featured the quicklook. I vaguely recalled watching it within a news article and indeed it was. However, the video was not working for me but it does prove it did indeed exist. For some reason it was never put with the other Quicklook videos.

Ah yes... that 70's filter.

It may have been taken done due to having a copyrighted song in the video.  That's my guess.

Sure about that? If so, it's also not there anymore.

They must have taken them down for some reason. Because I know that they did have QL's for both GTAIV and the Lost and Damned.

The GTA IV quicklook was not ever a video on the site, it was a live broadcast they did on Justin.tv. This was super early on and don't think it was ever posted again. I only saw part of it.

the lost and damned quick look was originally like 20 minutes, got pulled and put back up with a 9 minute video, then got pulled forever, im guessing rockstar complained about something
all of this happened within a couple of hours if i remember
dont ask me why or how i remember all this so vividly...

they did a couple hour live playthrough of the beginning of the game on justin tv or something like that but not an official quick look i dont think
although that one definitely was what the quick look idea spawned from

As a few latter posters said, it was on Justin.tv, pretty sure they done it live, though I never actually watched it, it's still on there I think, if you can find the GB channel, it'll be in the archive.

@Ineedaname: Ok, I just wanted to be sure what you were talking about. As NickL says, that wasn't actually a Quick Look.

@Kamasama: Technically I suppose it wasn't.
Sorry for the confusion, please forgive me.

I found the param page in the source code but there isnt a listing there anymore so I cant find the link to the video (I was hoping to find the link which means i could check if it was still there). I wish they would put it back up even in a edited form with the infringing part removed or at least explain why they removed it.

I looked for it but can't find any
