Yay, Metamoq impersonations :D

I know nothing about this, but I'm almost sold based on the video poster frame alone.

Bought it yesterday, beat the Warlock on my first run through the abyss.

Is there a Father-Mother-Grandfather-Grandmother in this game?

We need Jason in on a QL!

Book with white text on black pages. I want one.

Man, the art is this game is amazing. Say what you will about ACE Team, they know good art. This is kinda what I wanted from Child of Light, the 3D character models blend well with the background styles, in Child of Light it's kinda jarring at times but they've nailed it here.

Another musically-inclined skeleton? They're my favorite type of skeletons!

Motoko!

ACE Team are one of my favourite devs, and I got so excited when I first saw this game. Uh, the animation is so beautiful.

Why does no one comment on the alphones mucha art it is so unique

Posted by Yusar

Maybe the shopkeepers do get harder the deeper you are.

@artraider: the name of the style is art nouveau

Yeah, I wanna crack the cardboard with Pizza Pizza: Ontario's #1. Tell 'em the Hitman sent ya.

This game is gorgeous and a ton of fun. The devs have said they will introduce an option to turn friendly fire off in the future, which should be nice.

So you want to fight the shopkeepers so you can capture their soul. They are really powerful to play as.

And the devs have said they made friendly fire mandatory because it would be too easy without it. Just stun locking guys

Technically I'm a musically inclined skeleton

I get a kick listening to Jeff.

He don't like weird shit.

I like this, interested in the back concepts.

This seems like it would be great on Vita. Make it happen Sony/ACE Team!

I love Abe's Odyssey!

I've been having trouble getting my dualshock3 to work with this game on PC using DS3 tool. Anyone else having this issue?

Edited by Sydlanel

I feel this game could be awesome.. but having played a few hours of it..I think it's just OK.. the whole flow of it is too interrupted. And the later stages bring some really infuriating platforming sections that display the glaring control issues...

that said.. I'm kinda hooked to it right now.

More than the direct Rogue legacy association, I'd say that this game is more similar to the binding of Isaac, with the monster closet - modular room thing going.. although of course that's more in concept than in execution.

Anyhow, I'd say it good bang for buck...

Plus it's Chilean, so.. represent

Brad does not care about fallen soldiers and their treasures. At least 2 Chileans get blown past with nary a R3 click.

Posted by HubrisRanger

I think their conversation pretty much nails it: another game in the vein of Rogue Legacy/Spelunky (which I am fine with), but controls more like Smash Brothers. The additional layer of capturing enemy types and then being able to transform into them as a form of extra life is pretty neat as well. Might have to check this one out, thanks for the QL.

Posted by pweidman

Wow this game is gorgeous, wonderful artwork. And the loot plus co-op...daddy like.

Posted by Fitzgerald

This game looks damn good.

Posted by Korolev

This is really interesting, but not the game for me.

Posted by Flavbot

Oh THIS is the new Ace game? Man this has been a confusing ride.

I agree with pretty much all of this - idea's solid, execution is sometimes left wanting (particularly the controls and the actual way your default animations feel -- when not using cancels, you tend to feel unpleasantly unwieldy.) As such, I tend to prefer playing as captures over the actual character.

Also I'm glad that Brad remembered/noticed there's a grab button. It's kinda really useful.

On twitter @brad asked what a good term for the Rogue-likes with some permanence to it. Someone suggested "fauxgue-likes." and I support that idea.

Posted by Igniz12

Game's been on my radar every since they announced that playing as enemies will be a key feature. Dont know why but Im a sucker for those kinda of mechanics and unlike the CV metroidvanias this one is actually way more fleshed out than I would have hoped.

The friendly fire mechanic is kinda gross though, limits co-op combo potential severely. Should have just added damage scaling if they felt it would be too easy to combo things to death in co-op. Eh....not playing this game in co-op myself so it dosent affect me anyway. Bought this during steamsale but now I have to find the time to play it......and I still havent even started Rouge legacy yet :/

Posted by Cagliostro88

Weird...the bauta Brad got from the violinist is the typical mask of the venetian Carnival...no clue why it is in a Art Nouveau-chilean mithology game. Also the forest "rooms" reminded me a lot of the aesthetic of the Trine games

Guess i'm gonna go buy it now

How come we haven't gotten a 3-man Quick Look yet?

Edited by Chicken008

Seems like it controls a lot like Smash Bros., even the special moves on the stick.

Posted by ZzzZombi

Jeff's character's walk reminds me of Dark Souls two hander walk animation. And with robes !

Edited by EternalGamer2

Yeah. Hm. Yeah. Mm. Mm hm. Cool. Yeah. Cool. Hm. Mm. Yeah. Cool. Mm. Hm. Yeah. Yeah. Hm mm. Cool. Yeah.

Come on, Jeff. you are in the game's media, man. Show some interest in articulating your thoughts rather than grunting. There must be at least 30 or 40 times over the course of this video where you go "Hm" and don't follow it up with anything at all. This kind of verbal grunting provides nothing for your viewer at all. I'm not sure there is a way to convey more lethargy and disinterest in discussing games than this type of lazy verbal grunting.

Posted by D_W

Oh wow. The versus mode looks kind of cool too.

Posted by AMyggen

This game looks pretty cool.

Posted by onarum

This game is still at 9,99 at the humble store, for anyone interested

I might get it later today

Posted by Dave_Tacitus

A grunt is worth more than a wink to a blind man...

I'd say it's more Ascendant than Rogue Legacy but still a jolly good little game, particularly after you tune yourself in to the deliberate nature of the combat.

Posted by Xanadu

Wow this game looks awsome

Posted by AlexGBRO

this look great create ql

Posted by panzerghost

Game really does look amazing. How did this one stay off my radar till now?

Posted by mithical

I always enjoyed the Adventure mode in Smash Bros. games.. taking that stuff and spinning into a fully fledged game sounds pretty enticing.

Posted by spilledmilkfactory

This game looks gorgeous and Brad said "Rogue Legacy" a lot, so I was skeptically intrigued. But then Jeff said "basically Smash Bros." and I was sold.

Posted by Loafsmooch

I really like this game. The combat is actually very much like a fighting game. The devs are constantly talking to the players on the steam forums, they are looking at player statistics and will balance the game accordingly. If a lot of people seem to be beating stuff too easily, they will make the game harder. Also, they are gonna add a "nightmare mode". ACE Team is awesome!

Posted by Lemonhead

Wow, Jeff doesn't even attempt to hide his disinterest in this game. Maybe select a different QL partner for Brad on this one?

Posted by Einherjan

Seem to be riffing on the art style of Alphonse Mucha.
