This sounds interesting.  Although I'm not sure if I'll ever get around to giving this a whirl.

I thought Brad was playing the whole time until he flat out said he didn't... I knew something was wrong. Brad dies all the time. And why haven't i heard of "Ask me anything", it looks just the same as "Quick looks", except that they dont play.

Hmmmmm, seems like the same concept as The Crossing. That cancelled Source game in which the enemies in the "single player" would be actual people playing against you.  
 
Anyone remember that game?

Is Emilio Estevez confirmed at this point? 
 
EDIT Oh man after watching that I kind of wish I didn't...it looks mad generic. Is giantbomb trying to get into square-enix's good graces so when the real stuff comes out?

They've only done like... 3 including this. And that's exactly what they are. In the past it has been footage of them playing where they could capture, but were not in an environment where commentary was possible, usually on the show floor or a press event. Not having watched this, I dunno what they did here.

So this is a pretty cool idea but the actual shooting/targeting looks kinda shoddy. This game is definitely on my radar now though.

Seems like a really standard third person shooter, but at the same time... it all looks kinda janky.

The multiplayer aspect seems interesting, nice to see games break away from just having team deathmatch and ctf.

@artofwar420: Yeah I remember that. Seemed interesting but it kinda just up and died.

Seems like it's similar to what The Crossing was endeavoring to be.

@Wes899: Looks those peeps are working on something else now. Hope to hear something good from them in the future.

Gameplay seems interesting, but the AI and look of the whole thing are both terrible...
 
EDIT: Scratch that. Gameplay seems generic as hell. The moving around to different players was done by BC2 on the consoles and the MP/SP thing has been done in many games, such as L4D.

love the way that giantbomb strives to make up awesome video titles and also tries to quasi copyright them :P

So it's like counter-ops from Perfect Dark, except instead of automatically spawning you as a different enemy, you have to go look around for one...that sounds like it could get kind of tedious.

AMA means they have recorded footage they are watching.  Quick Looks they actually play.

Doesn't look like a full price game to me, but not also not so bad. Will there be some LA Noire coverage in the future, which I would much rather prefer to this. That would be totally awesome.

Why? Did you actually read what the bot said? It's hilarious.

I'm kinda torn on this. On a top-level game design perspective, the idea of a single-player/co-op campaign being a series of broken up multiplayer matches has some merit, but the question becomes how many people are going to be playing the campaign two week after the game comes out? Is it short enough to have people who enjoy playing that side of things to keep going back to that, or after the initial release are you going to have a wasteland of people wanting to play Bad Guys and no one up for playing the campaign again.
 
As far as "shooting-dudes-in-the-face" goes, it seems fine enough. Kinda loose in some spots, but it doesn't seem broken. Plus the whole Geist/Messiah possess other people mechanic should get more use, especially when it adds the extra element of cybernetic monkeys.

Looks a lot like that Ghost in the Shell game for PS2. I kind of wanted to play it recently but coulnt find a disk. this might be alright but the shooting seems very unimpactful.

Jeff not only delivered a good pun, but got the Pixies stuck in my head.
 
Edit: And by good I mean terrible.
Edit 2: And by pun I mean loose wordplay.

Psi-Ops meets Demon's Souls? Looks fun. Nothing innovative, but certainly fun.
