Looks kind of cool, I'm not one for console strategy games though.  Maybe try it on on the PC.

I like what they're doing artistically and musically, but i'm not really into the rts genre. Looks kind of cool though.

To be clear, Greed Corp is not a real-time strategy.  Its a turn-based strategy game.  A TBS is a much better fit on consoles than a RTS, due to not needing to make split second decisions with inferior controls.

There are two things in this world I can't stand. People who are intolerant of other cultures, and the Dutch.

@JamesKond:
GreedCorp is made by a Dutch company. Ofcourse he SOUNDS dutch.
W!Games is situated in Amsterdam, how they get anything constructive done in that city is beyond me though. Just look at Ajax!

I thought that accent sounded familiar. 
 
Thankfully his accent is very decent, I tend to hate typical dutch accents. 
But I guess you're always more critical towards your fellow countrymen. ;)

@XII_Sniper: Yeah. even though some U.K accents sound very similar strangely enough

Looks like a fun game for chilling out with some friends online (or local if it has it). I doubt single player would be as much fun, but I could be wrong. I do love some Civilization Revolution and this might scratch that itch.

@JamesKond: Only cause everyone speaking english in europe base in on English accents, not American ones.

I've gotta admit I dislike the EX quick looks. To me the greatest draw of Quick Looks is getting an unbiased first impression of the game, warts and all. It mirrors what happens in people's actual homes when they bring a game home for the first time and pop it in, so that makes it super useful (to me moreso than a review) to determine if it's something I should buy.
 
Having the developer there does allow you to get some info and depth about the game you might not have been aware of, but it disconnects it from the end-users experience. No normal consumer is going to have the devs sit on down with them and explain the game during the first couple hours, you have to rely on how well the game is made, and how well it guides you through the experience on its own. 
 
Also, listening to you guys rip on the games is a big part of the draw . I completely understand that with the developer there you have to be more diplomatic with your words, but that doesn't make it any more entertaining to watch.

Don't have much to say about this game, but Quick Look EX's make me go "Meh". It's nice that they bring some sort of game reps in to show off stuff, but the game staff usually sound awkward, stiff, and the video itself not very exciting.

There's too few turn-based games on the market today.  Been looking forward to this one :)

I'm surprised by how cool that game looks. When I saw the trailer a few days ago, I had no idea what kind of game it was nor did I really care. But after seeing this, I might actually have to get it. If only I had enough friends that were into this type of game. 
 
I've purchased SO many games I wouldn't have due to these darn Quick Look's by Giantbomb.

Sounds very Dutch to me...I am Dutch, but it really sounds alot like when a Dutchie talks English.

Agreed, though the time they got the dudes in and got smashed on rum was pretty good.
 
All in all, this game doesn't appeal to me in the slightest.  That the dev simply ran through the game without having the GB crew make massive mistakes and Brad dying sort of ruined this QL for me.

I happen to be Dutch and he speaks English really well. 
Better than me, that's for sure. 
Obviously, in his line of work, he has to speak it to a fair extent. 
This game is quite interesting, and that's an unbiased opinion.

@Oceaniax:@Davin:@skrutop: Jeez, would you bunch of ungrateful twerps rather we got no video at all? :P
 
I actually think the game looks alright. I had no idea what was going on for most of it, but it started to make sense near the end.

It would be cool if you could play against people on other platforms - since its turn based, no advantage based on system.

@Binman88: I truly don't want to get into an internet argument, all i'll say is I fail to see how providing feedback on GiantBomb's quicklook format makes us "ungrateful twerps". I have much love for the site, but nothing is perfect.

@Oceaniax: Neither do I, I was kinda joking, hence the ":P". Sure the Quicklook EXs aren't usually as entertaining as the standard QLs, but there's not really a way they could do them differently. They have the chance for the developer to explain parts of their game to us, so why not? It's better than having no video at all.

I liked that Dutch guy. I'm not usually a fan of the "ex"'s, but the Dutch guy was pretty likeable. He was pretty cool.

Being Dutch I hate listening to Dutch accents. Dunno what it is. Cool game though :D
