Vinny should always be on lighthouse duty.

This quick look rocked. Make me want to buy this game.

Pretty shitty all of the sim related quick looks and video content is basically just a joke that you put little effort into

I understand the sentiment, but I actually find their approach to simulation QLs helpful in showing what the games have to offer - especially, as Drew said, for the layman. I've bought Rise of Flight, Euro Truck Simulator 2 and now this as a result of their quick looks. Doesn't hurt that the content happens to be hilarious too.

I find it problematic when they approach a game uninformed and still criticise it, but that's not how Drew or Vinny roll.

Ahahahahaha. Oh man. Quick Looks with Vinny never fail to make me laugh. This is awesome.

This is one of the most hilarious GB videos I've witnessed. First 5 minutes had me laughing out loud in the library. Well done, crew.

This seems like a game I would never, ever, want to play myself but at the same time I totally would watch more of others fumbling around with it.

ah, the EVE syndrome

Of course Vinny has to be the explosive specialist.

i dunno, pretty disappointed by this quick look. Was kinda interested in this game, but thanks to Vinny, I'll probably never know... :(

You can check out the coverage over at Gamespot if you like. Drew mentioned it in the Quick Look. They'll give you a better impression of the current Alpha.

(and remember that they might do a serious-ish Quick Look once ARMA 3 is actually released.)

Vinny, I love you so fucking much.

@neckbear: Oh whatever, man. I'm all about the antics and still think the video is hilarious but I don't think taking five minutes to go over shit like settings and controls is too much to ask before recording an hour long video about one of the highest selling things on steam right now.

I know of the gamespot coverage, thanks. It's just that usually, the giantbombers are right in between super silly and really informative: I LOVE them for that!

This time they failed in my opinion; no biggie, but calling people that wanna get some real information names like @neckbear is just weak sauce.

C'mon guys, even Drew sounds a tad dissappointed and Patrick at some point calls Vinny a child 'thats thrashing out' or sth; so they notice Anti-Vinny too...

I think if you look at the history of alpha and beta Quick Looks, they tend toward being sillier than usual. I mean, the game is still quite rough. Look for something funny yet informative when it actually releases.

So, while it stinks that you were disappointed in the Quick Look, it was actually better than I expected. I look forward to something more informative down the road, but for what it is, it's something I quite enjoyed. :)

I love the ARMA series but for all of the wrong reasons. This is why the Quick-Look sold me on purchasing it. I remember flying hundreds of feet into the air while driving a jeep over a pile of rocks in Operation Flashpoint. Ever since then, I've always loved these games and how buggy they can be. Occasionally, I like getting serious and playing the missions the right way but mostly I play them exactly like Vinny in this Quick-Look.

Awesome Quick-Look guys, I would love to see you guys playing ARMA3 as a secondary game on a future TnT!

Edited by MachoFantastico

I loved Operation Flashpoint (one of my all time favorite PC games) and the Arma games are great, but for all the wrong reasons usually. Flawed to no end but a lot of fun.

Hearing Ryan panicking when Drew was flying the helicopter made me really want to see/hear Ryan's reaction during him or someone else playing War Thunder.

Can't help but agree, but this is Giant Bomb in a sim here. Expect zero effort and you won't be disappointed.

that doesn't really make sense. Is the giant bomb quick look of the alpha the only source you have of any information at all on arma 3? Are you incapable of searching for the name of the game or viewing other content regarding it? It is 100% true that giant bomb will never cover this game ever again, and has never given this game any other coverage. And they never will.

I agree, its unfortunate the only source of information on this game at all anywhere is entertaining and not exhaustive.

I actually do. As a subscriber Im genuinely interested in good and funny coverage of video games. Now I love fudgin around. That's video games! :D

But what rubbed me the wrong way is that Vinny - after 20 minutes of working against Drew, who was well prepared (as always), doesn't come around and realises that he's doing a job here.

A job that I help fund. Of course there are others who are fine with that type of attitude, thats ok by me, but I can't be the only one.

And @riboflavin; i know that its not the only source for information; cmon. But its the source that I trust and pay for; and i feel let down.

Edited by PlaydohCutter

This was very funny.

This quick look was incredible, Vinny was just hilarious!

Posted by MasterWGS

I can't understand anyone not absolutely loving Vinny in this. He's why Quick Looks of sim games like this should happen. There's plenty of footage of these games being played seriously on the internet - look elsewhere if you want a really insightful breakdown of a game like this.

Otherwise, join us in watching a group of duders have fun with a game.

Edited by Winternet

Oh my god, these first few minutes are great. Vinny is a God among men.

Posted by GenocidalKitten

I just wanted to say that I loved this QL and that I would take this over an informative QL any day of the week.

If you're a paying subscriber then you should know well enough to expect humor from this site. There are a million youtube videos of people playing this thing 100% serious, go watch them, it's a sea of boring ass videos to choose from.

How can you pay for something and then complain when you get exactly what they offer? They aren't shy about their intentions. Stop being naive, you know what this site is.

Quick Look of the year. I'm calling it.

Edited by Cazamalos

I've never laughed so hard at a video on the internet

thanks Vinny

thanks GB

ps: if you are an ARMA fan don't watch this quick look

Posted by fusion42

@xeirus: as i said, they usually strike a perfect balance between information and humor; there is a difference between this quick look and say dead space 3, isn't it?

And it has nothing to do with being 'naive', im a paying customer and im giving feedback. thats it. No big thing, no 'blasphemy' i hope. You clearly didn't read what i wrote.

No, but you act shocked when Vinny acts dumb in a quick look. He's been doing that since before you were born.
I disagree, I think you're being very naive to expect something more out of a alpha build of a game on Giantbomb of all places....

Also, don't use quotes when you're using them on the wrong words, I never said the word blasphemy.
You should just move on with things and try not to take quick looks so seriously... in other words, be more like Vinny.

Edited by ectoplasma

I love Drew Quicklooks. He always has a decent idea of what he wants to show and how to show it.

Posted by fusion42

@xeirus: who said "shocked", i never used the word, and again your reply is not a reply at all: how about talking about me being a "customer" (this is a quote dude) and Vinny doing a "job"? Nope.

You wanna get more posts, or do you wanna engage in a real conversation? The former grows bigger with every 'reply' (not a quote dude; irony). I said, i love Vinny, but this time he overdid it imho. Thats my honest opinion.

So what do you have against people that voice their honest opinion? No critique allowed? Freedom of speech anyone? The way you talk down to me says a LOT about you right now (and that you can't accept different views for instance). Weak.

I didn't use quotes when saying shocked, are you brain dead dude? I feel like you're trying to be clever and make a point about grammar, but it's not going anywhere because you're clueless as hell.

ANYWAYS, You can have you opinions, that's great. I also have an opinion, it's that people who subscribe to a particular type of site shouldn't be so butt-hurt when that site does exactly what they've been doing for years.

But hey man, keep on with your clever quotes and your serious quicklook hopes, I'm sure one day Vinny will be SUPER serious. That's the day I unsubscribe though.

Posted by fusion42

@xeirus: who started worrying about qoutes and misquotes anyway? It was you man. ;)

youre a troll. sorry for taking you seriously. won't happen again.

Edited by mdmac92

@fusion42: I agree. I usually love Vinny in QLs (the Sleepy Dogs content is GOLD), but in this Vinny was actively working against Drew, who was well prepared and trying to give an informative look at the game. I know what GB is all about, and I'm not expecting super serious ARMA (of all things) coverage, but this had little to no value outside of comedy.When I come to a GB quicklook, I expect to see good coverage of games through the humorous lens of the GB crew personalities I know and love.

I get it, I do, the crew is not big on military sims. But is it too much to ask that out of an HOUR Quicklook we get 15-20 mins for Drew to explain some stuff without Vinnie goofing off and screwing it up for him? Again, I love Vinnie (who doesn't), but he went a little overboard on this one.

A friend hooked me up with the "Lite" version, whatever that means. This could be fun though I'll probably be confused as all hell considering I have not played any of the OF and ARMA games.

That means "torrented".

No. Every person who buys the alpha gets a steam 'lite' version to gift to a friend so they can get a taste of the game.

Please never change, Vinny. We love you.

Wow, this is my favorite Quick Look in a long time. I love seeing Vinny be Vinny.

Sneak attack!

Posted by MachoFantastico

To those critical of this Quick Look, this is exactly how it went down for me and a friend. I knew what I was doing (to some degree at least) and my friend was pretty much Vinny. Still, we had fun and the last time I checked video games were meant to be fun.
