Cool, I'm really liking the music and style.
Quick Look EX: Greed Corp
" Looks kind of cool, I'm not one for console rts though. Maybe try it on on the PC. "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.
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.
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.
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.
