Goes to show that competetive/cooperative games just work the best for these kinds of segments. Always a fun watch. Part of it comes from Dan's glee and excitement whenever he has the chance to beat someone in something of course.

I really wish i could make my own character in this game. Geralt is so generic to me.

And his voice sounds like every other character in games these days. Dark. Gruffy. GENERIC!

They're telling a story. AFAIK the voice has been the same all the way since the Witcher: EE

Exactly. I can only recommend the books, they're actually excellent. The previous games have done a really good job of portraying the character. They obviously took some liberties here and there but that is necessary since they don't follow the books though this one is closest to them. Ciri is the other major character in the books, she's great and I'm really looking forward to seeing what they do with her especially since she is playable as well. I do enjoy creating my own character but this is not the place for it.

It's crazy how absolutely awesome this was. Vinny is not only super funny with Alex being the perfect wingman, but he's actually really good at the game! I know I still don't have the parry's down that well for whatever reason and Vinny was always a tank player so his performance is really impressive. For a little bit it looked like he was going to actually take Father G down on his first try!

Yeah him and Alex make a really good duo. Most of the content I watch these days is by GBeast. Always thought Alex should be in more video content and this and the quicklooks just prove it to me.

I wish Vinny didn't feel under pressure to skip through basically all of the dialogue. I actually think it's making my enjoyment of this Quick Look worse, not better.

Agreed. I know he's doing it for the quicklook but it's an adventure game. Things are slow, it doesn't help if you jump around like crazy. Just show a slice or two of the game without rushing. Less is more in this case I feel.

Can't they just let Handsome Jack die? Was really bummed when he showed up.

I agree with you but if anyone can make that character work it's Telltale. The first episode was really good, I'd argue the best first episode they've done so far but they really do take too long to release them. Still, I'm looking forward to it.

I can confirm that this works pretty much flawlessly. Didn't have the problems Vinny had during the TD sequence either.

The shading and higher detail on the characters look great, though I really wish they had gone with a completely new art-style again with V :S Especially with all the super-hyper-arcade-delux-editions they have been releasing since the first rendition of IV. It just feels like a gen-jump re-release.

I know V will feature tweaks, new balance and perhaps new systems on ultra/supers ect, but as a casual/normal consumer of fighting games, I'd like a bigger jump in style, especially when going to a new generation.

I think they need to stick with this style. They super colorful characters and backgrounds with exaggerated proportions have always been a part of Street Fighter so I don't see how changing styles would help the franchise. This is just the natural jump from what we got last gen, and it's supposed to be.

Yeah I agree with that. There are quite a few fighters with different art styles available so I'm happy that they keep improving upon the core SF4 style. It looks great and I like what they did with the hit and special move effects.

I know you're all excited and all but... what if that cat is an asshole?

Most cats are.

Yo that looks awesome.
