Between this and PB Winterbottom, these QLEX things are doing wonders for indie devs. Keep it up!

I haven't had the ability to watch videos or listen to audio in like 3 months so I'm way behind on my Giant Bomb stuff, someone explain the QLEX thing for me!

@Hamz: A dev comes by and they do a quicklook with the dev playing.

The only other use of EX that I can think of is in the Street Fighter EX series of games. Maybe there's some correlation. I got nothing though. Maybe it stands for "extra" since they have an extra person there showing off the game?

Wasn't really sold on this particular QLEX, although the art design did look really cool.  Giant Bomb should really go out and get more indie developers to do Quick Looks for their games.

@Hamz: It stands for exclusive

I wish they would have showed how the game played vs other people. Melee based competitive games are usually no fun at all. It reminded me of a super-stylized version of FFA Swords in Halo 2.

Did they mention a date for the XBLA version? 'Cause i'm super interested in this, especially the gravity aspect.

I don't watch the EX quicklooks. I find that they suck.

Even if they doesn't have any plans for a 360 version it looks like almost any PC could run it. The maps are mostly untextured boxes.

@Hamz: The Legendary Quick Look was an EX version I think . . . and my guess is Extended, since the dev is walking you through the game, but also telling you stuff you wouldn't ordinarily know off hand. 
 
*edit* 
 
Sorry, just went to watch a couple minutes of the 'Demo.'  (it's not a quick look per se, but I think it's the forerunner of the QL's..)   
 
And it's awful.  God awful.  So awful.
