Why does this video have to end ?!

Posted by mrcraggle

This video is full of so much awesome. Brad starring into my soul, Brad eating chicken, giraffe, ball crushing difficulty of Trials, Patrick piloting an invisible mech and John Drake.

That was great!

I love Giantbomb.

So has Peter Molyneux moved on from dogs and is now focusing on horses? Will this horse revolutionize gaming?

Isn't Wrecketter the game where you play as the anime girl and have your own store?

No you're thinking of Wrecettar.

Jeff gets all the microphones the rest of you get none.

Everything in this looked kinda awesome.

Except Star Wars holy shit that game looks dumb.

The new Halos are being billed as the "Reclaimer" trilogy, for those wondering.

Steel Battalion - early, hands-down winner for worst motion controls of 2012 and beyond.

It seems so weird that it seems like a perfect contender for an "so bad it's good" award. The gameplay footage certainly was better at hyping me up for the game than the weird trailer they put up recently.

Haha, Brad getting frustrated playing Trials. Never gets old!

"why? because blowing up castles is rad"

also that video was awesome, just awesomely cut, awesome cameo's awesome awesomeness.

Edited by I_smell

Brad should be an official flag revealer (de-flagger?). That was hot.

Confirmed: Blowing up castles is rad.

Man, more Covenant? That guy who left 343's desire to bring Halo into "radically different ground," or something to that effect, sounded extremely appealing to me because I imagined Master Chief possibly passing through some wormhole or something and finding himself in medieval or modern times. Obviously, that's quite insane, especially for those who are deeply into the Halo universe but my idea would be cuh-razy.

When they say 'radically different ground', they mean 'radically different SAME ground'. So same game, but tiny bit different. Can anyone seriously tell me any of that was different Halo?

I'm really wondering what Forza Horizon will be. Probably a more arcadey Forza.

Considering MS's favour of showing Kinect titles, I'm going to say it'll be a full Kinect Forza game...basically a sequel to JoyRide only with a name people know.

The footage of Brad playing Trials was hilarious.

These press event videos are always the best, I've said that before and it's still true.

Guys, John Drake looked at us O_____O

I find it rather odd when they discredit Star Wars games as being for kids. Of course they are - Star Wars always was. Even the original movies were made with kid's toy tie-ins explicitly in mind, and that certainly didn't change with the prequels or animated series. The problem kinda is that the people who saw Star Wars in the 70's probably were kids then, but somehow expect the franchise to have matured with them as it has continued strong in the decades since then.

But the core audience has never been the fans of the 70's movie, it always was kids - which is why George Lucas has no problems with updating the old movies to stay relevant with kids today, rather than staying true to the nostalgia of it's old fans.

Fantastic video guys!

Hope to get some from GDC.

XBLA has been the strong point of the Xbox360 for three years now

I liked Jeff's reaction to Brad eating the chicken on a stick.

"Well, great, now you can't review any games that Microsoft publishes for the next 18 months" haha

Posted by Ares42

The star wars dancing... wow, just wow =D

Posted by paulunga

I haven't played Nier but I watched the trailers. The girl in Steel Battalion is totally voiced by the same VA as Kaine, right?

Posted by MrMazz

I hope that what appeared to be teriyaki chicken was worth your journalistic SOUL Brad.

Trials looks fun and dare I say even the kinect

@SuperSambo: Looks about the same height. Maybe 6"3'?

This is a great fucking video. I love you more everyday Giant Bomb

Drew killing it as always with the editing.

I'm Commander Shepard, and GDC is my favorite event of the year.

EDIT: Fuck, this is the showcase. But my point stands.

I thought the xbow 360 was already mostly white?

Besides the trippy intro that made me sleepy, this video was fantastic! Looking forward to their GDC coverage.

No, everyone liked the old Star Wars. Kids just happened to be on that group too. The new Star Wars was supposed to be for everyone as well.....none where meant as movies for children. Unless you think political intrigue, romance and limb mutilation is what children like the most. ( they probably do like the limb mutilation)

They made toys, sure. they made toys for the Alien and Predator movies as well.

The new movies failed to set the same wide net, so they went back to children. It's easier.

Star Wars is not Pokemon.

Posted by goatmilk

Oh man, Brad playing Trials reminded me of how frustrated I got with it. I ended up uninstalling it in the end after getting too many headaches.

Almost everything in this video looks amazingly fun.

I love imagining the person who's come to this site for the first time, watches this video, and wonders why it cut to a tiny giraffe for a split second.

What are you even talking about? I only saw a podracer and there was podracing in the Star Wars game so that fits right? Nothing weird about it.

John Drake, man of the year.

Posted by ZmillA

I will buy a kinect for steel batallion

oh and Dave Lang is awesome

Posted by Fram

Love these event wrap-up videos so much. Giant Bomb at their John-Drake-segueing best.

Like them or not, FromSoftware consistently put out games that are super-committed to their aesthetic and gameplay systems, and I love them for it. Steel Battalion will be in my Xbox on day one.

Speaking of day one, I'm suggesting a release day all-day livestream / Breaking Brad session of Trails Evolution.

Posted by piropeople13

this video is great, even though i didn't really like the games

Posted by mnzy

These videos are the best.

Posted by Tan

These videos are always the best, always looks like everyone involved (even on the editting side) is having a great time.

Posted by GeneralGrey

Absolutely excellent video - informative, entertaining, amusing; all the reasons why I love Giant Bomb. Keep it up guys!

Posted by TruthTellah

heh. The Greg Kasavin impression was spot on. That day still has a warm place in my heart.

Looking forward to the rest of the week! And my heart still goes out to Jeff.
