Breaking Brad and a Quick Look all in one!

Posted by jasius

Great Quick Look, brad playing mediocre as always! "Its not as easy as it looks" oh brad the world really is hard on you sometimes isn't it?

I'll definitely skip this one, something I don't want to mess with, all the timing nonsense and such.

Posted by rockhopper78

Never heard of this game before, but I'm definitely intrigued. Looking forward to the release.

Posted by Vigorousjammer

man, MAN... EVERYTHING ABOUT THIS GAME LOOKS INCREDIBLE.

Posted by Cyrisaurus

Man, Brad's attitude really gets on my nerves sometimes. Just play this for fun, it's ok if you make mistakes and die.

He acts like he's defusing a fucking bomb.

Posted by Jack_Lafayette

Welp, I do believe I've been convinced to buy this game when it comes out.

Wasn't Adam Boyes working on this at some point?

Posted by Dan_CiTi

When will he be in a fighting game?

Posted by Patman99

This looks great. I wasn't too hopeful when I first saw the trailer but seeing it in motion has swayed my point of view.

Posted by ajamafalous

This game looks really neat. I'll definitely pick it up on Steam at some point.

Posted by AssInAss

That's a really cool-looking boss.

@paulunga: I think the current generation isn't as patient as older gamers. I am speaking more to them.

Posted by Islaja

I like the music.

Posted by SuperJoe

It's a reverse tractor beam.

Posted by Viking_Funeral

A 2D platformer based around the tractor beam mechanics from Portal?

I'll give it another look when it's more polished, but right now nothing about it stands out.

Posted by Pudge

This game looks amazing. Also, I love that this is "Pulling a Brad: The Quicklook"

I dig the music. reminds me of pink lady lemonade.

Totally Pid Totally Party!

Posted by seannao

I wasn't very interested in this game at first, but hearing the music and seeing it played... Some of the odd things like the MOTHBLOX.. haha.. Looks entertaining enough! Jump in. Go forward.. Kinda Osmos sorta chilled back feel, even though both games as games are completely different.

Posted by Cloneslayer

WOW, my whole opinion on Brad's skills has been changed.

Posted by bhhawks78

I hate to be that guy, but for me indie puzzle platformers are even more overplayed than modern military shooters.

Posted by Arlecchino

@Cloneslayer: I don't know why I believed you.

Posted by benspyda

Looks cool, not my type of game, but the mechanics look solid. Rayman Origins has made me realise I'm probably not that cut out for intense platformers anymore.

Posted by Thoseposers

watched ten seconds of the game and already determined that i hate the mechanics of it. Definite pass.

100% agreed

Posted by impartialgecko

I am IN. This game looks fantastic. Even without the Rearmed pedigree behind it the game looks tight.

Posted by Jeric

Gotta love a platformer that combines tough, fun mechanics with capable enemies that aren't afraid to kick your teeth in.

Posted by Indiana_Jenkins

I wasn't really feeling this when the trailer was debuted. After this Quick Look, I'm kind of interested. As long as it remains challenging.

Posted by McGhee

Love the graphics in this game. Almost looks like stop motion animation, like moving painted blocks.

Edited by handlas

I assume this is Xbox only? Seeing how it looks awesome and all. Want it on my PS3.

Posted by TheHT

Sold!

Posted by Flubagalub

@handlas: They said it would be on PC, Xbox and PS3.

Posted by a_beluga_whale

Love how they complained on the bombcast this week about having to watch the SAME AD OVER AND OVER on Hulu before you can watch a video.

Here I am trying to catch up on some quicklooks and every one is preceded by THE SAME FUCKING AD.

Might wanna look into that guys.

Edited by Kosayn

Brad showcasing some skills in this quick look.

It's definitely neat seeing a video game before all the usual necessary bullshit is put in. I can see why it needs like, some threadbare explanation of why the kid can throw gravity beams. And a plot intro with a macguffin to give you a reason to get through the stages. Also, I'm a little curious why constellations are the currency.

That beam and jump interaction is so versatile. It leans heavily towards execution over puzzle solving, which I guess is a lot like Bionic Commando.

Reminds me of how Rainbow Islands was not really the same kind of game as Bubble Bobble, but still shared some gameplay with it.

Posted by LucidDreams117

Wow. Look pretty awesome. But at the same time hard as hell! Great art style too. Loving it.

Posted by uber_skedy

looks good, I'm sold.

I have never once encountered an AD when watching a video on this site, whether I have an active subscription or not. How come you get ads and I dont?

I do have ad-blocker, but I assume almost everyone uses it. :/

Posted by Drebin_893

That was a really good Quick Look.

Posted by dropabombonit

So much Brad pulling in this quick look

Same, i remember when dead island was being promoted and getting annoyed to the point of not watching videos when they showed the same promo over and over, but chromes ad block fixed that problem and once I got a premium subscription the problem went away completely. It is def worth the five bucks a month if you are going to be taking in the content as regularly as I do.

Posted by JackSukeru

Bionic Commando Rearmed 2 was a good game, and it was cool that you could play all of it without jumping despite that they added it in.

I wasn't interested in this after I saw the reveal but I'm warming up to it.

Puzzle platformers have a lot more variety than military shooters. The reason why shooters (specifically military) are overplayed to me is because the variety between individual shooters is not a lot, whereas for platformers I often feel like I am playing a different game. Not saying everyone should think this way though. Everyone has their own entertainment preference and there are plenty of people that can tell me how "different" one shooter is from another.

I have never seen an advertisement before a Giantbomb video and I do not use an ad blocker on the site. Are you in a different country than the USA? I am not sure why you would see advertisements but I wouldn't.

Posted by ChrisTaran

Looks pretty sweet. Need to wishlist this on Steam!

Edited by mefipulate

jeff how DARE you misunderrepresent my <2d platformer game> by showing a SMIDGEON of content in a video less than an hour and not play the game RIGHT

HOW DARE YOU

Posted by jpmcosta

I love how the hero is blue and IS affected by the gravity. One of a kind?

Posted by a_beluga_whale

@Lurkero: I have no idea why I'm getting ads, but it's still happening! I watch quick looks several times a week and have never had it happen before. It's the same AXE ad (Susan fucking Glenn over and over!) before every single quick look video. I even went back into the archives and I'm getting the same ad playing in the video player. Is it possibly a new addition for non-premium folks? I've never had to watch an ad here before though...

At any rate, just thought it was kind of hilarious/annoying given the guys talking in the podcast this week about how much Hulu sucks b/c of repetitive ads, and then the very same day I listen to the podcast the exact same thing is happening to me here. It can't just be me can it? I'm using firefox, I live in NY and have never once seen a video ad on the site before yesterday.

Brad says around 6:30, "I'm a little paranoid."

Ah! But you see, Brad, your block is not paranoia. Your mental malady, so to speak, when it comes to trying things in games, is avoidance. You assume that something will not work without fully thinking out the problem or with a pessimistic view as to a potential solution's viability. It is at this point that you make the leap in logic to deciding the solution in question will not work. But you don't test. You don't try. You fear failure so much it clouds your judgement. You inflate the potential loss associated with failure despite the fact that most games, especially modern ones, are designed specifically for the player to rest easy in trying things as sanction for a failure is usually only a matter of seconds or at worst a handful of minutes of progress lost.

:D

Posted by a_beluga_whale
@Lurkero: Quick follow-up:  I switched to Safari (which I generally don't like at all) and the ads are gone.  So it was something particular to Firefox even though I have a flash blocker and an ad blocker.  Either way, now I can watch quick looks without being sold AXE every 20 minutes.

It does look flat but it is in the same style as Team Fortress 2.
