I completely forgot that this game existed.

There are three of these games. Think about that.

Finally, Army of Tiiio!

Spoiler: Alpha is actually Noise.

Diablo 4, guys.

EDIT: I'm waiting until they name the protagonists Thing One and Thing Two, from Dr. Seuss.

A co-op-oriented shooter, from a b-grade franchise, in a southwest setting, with a drug cartel playing the villains? What could possibly go wrong?

And yet games like Mirror's Edge or Shadows of the Damned or Brutal Legend, which are flawed but show promise and reveal a certain ambition, were put into limbo.

On a different note - 5 minutes in, this is a candidate for best QL of 2013.

"What the fuck do we do now?!"

me: "Shoot people?"

Jeff: "shoot people!"

Ryan: "Probably shoot people!"

I actually liked the second Army of Two, this seems like a step in the wrong direction.

SLOW MOTION BREACH SCEEENE, ALL COOL VIDEO GAMES HAVE THEM!

Seems like there have been a bunch of broken videos on GB's youtube account recently, this one cuts off 29 minutes in, just as they are about to start an co-op game.

Posted by DJJoeJoe

@fisk0: I noticed people have issues with longer videos on youtube in general, being specific I mean those Gopher videos for skyrim playthrough stuff, which top out past 40 mins I think. Seems like it's a rare issue for individuals and based on youtube specifically. I'd check that out first.

they guessed like all of the "twists".

Never forget the ARMA 3 quick look.

Let's piss off the few people who still play these fucking games by making Salem the bad guy! This is fucking stupid... These games get worse with every installment! Just stop!

Edited by OGred

@fisk0: now i have to reload the entire video to watch the last ten minutes ;{

Oh yeah, this game exists. Sorry, was too busy playing Bioshock infinite to notice.

Haven't seen any issues with that on Giant Bomb's account until a week or two ago, and they've had some videos well over an hour long previously. The Soda Drinker Pro video in particular was only 6 minutes long, but still cut off after 3 minutes on Youtube.

Why does this game even exist

Posted by hollitz

I bet this game is fine.

Posted by Benny

It's so depressing the way the super obvious plot is revealed and is then commented on by the characters themselves. To me it just confirms that this is very much a 'paying the bills' project that nobody cared to get creative with.

Edited by Krakn3Dfx

Ken Levine is freaking out obviously at the same day release of his game and this.

Did a new Deer Hunter come out, too?

Posted by SlashDance

I would totally buy that on a steam sale. If it was on PC...

At least they see it coming a mile away in-game also.

I'm just annoyed at EA for releasing this game on Bioshock week. What a dumb fucking thing to do, it's a lot easier to scorn this games existence in that game's shadow.

These games have never been aggressively bad, in fact the second game had a good premise that was fucked up by terrible terrible story telling with an insulting ending (the DLC padded out an abrupt story turn at least)

This game is ok, it has a handful of cool moments and some good dialogue but it does feel like a floundering fish right now...It will probably be the last one, EA will most likely kill it for good, hell they've been doing that already.

It's hilarious that they happened to show that "plot twist."

Posted by Shaunage

I love that they haven't even bothered to slap a spoiler warning on the video because, hey, who cares?

Edited by fox01313

Just sad thinking that there's 3 of them. Game would be great with a Jeff/Ryan commentary through the whole thing as the story/dialogue needs something to elevate it beyond being very average from the looks of it. First one seemed to have a bit more definition to it but after seeing this, seems like someone revisiting the same story with less there.

I'd like Jeff to create an announcer pack for Dota 2.

Is it really a "plot twist" when it happens at the start of the game?

So generic. Faceless dudes shoot other faceless dudes.

Just came here to say: YouTube video is broken :(

Also: Goofy big head masks with tiny eyes are goofy.

Posted by Elwoodan

I liked the first one because of the stupid-ass Wu Tang Clan comments and the giant, armored, terrorists. if you get that caught up on the fist-bumps and dudebro stuff, you need to lighten up.

Yeah, missing 8 minutes.

Posted by nomtank

Y'know what? I'd buy this for like $15 maybe.

Posted by Andy_117

I find it incredibly disconcerting that they get told off for not checking that their teammate was actually dead, which turned him into a villain. Then they don't go back to check if that guy that got shot was dead.

I mean, it's not like there's a chance he's alive. I'm not saying that. But after the epiphany that they created their enemy by not checking he was actually dead, I would think they'd be ever so slightly more vigilant about that. Even if the dude was capped point blank in the head. It doesn't hurt to check, guys...! And you just discovered it does hurt to not check...

Finally. A game where you can shoot guys in the desert...


fuck this look boring...

If you care about spoilers, you're going to play the game, so why are you watching a Quick Look?

Edited by SuperSambo

Is the game running at 20fps, or is the video off?

EDIT: It appears that the youtube version for me is running really badly with screen tearing, while the HTML version is running how it should be.

Yes, because everything begins and ends with BioShock 3. Eff off. EA messed up with Syndicate, leaving it to die a silent death among their obnoxious and relentless advertising campaign for Mass Effect 3. Hey, I'd argue Syndicate is a much better game than a messed up Mass Effect thing, but whatever. Opinions!

This is another Army of Two game, which will most likely be bought and played by people who've bought and liked previous Army of Two games (among the dozens). I'm not sure why it matters when it's released, I have at least seen advertising for it, which is more than could be said for Syndicate (a game which a lot of people still wrongly assume is just another generic shooter... um, Army of Two 3 says hi). My point is, obvious numbered sequels and franchise cash-ins have a lot less to worry about than obscure reboots.

Did that guy stab the dude in the throat, then slit his throat?

i call it fucking dumb closing the studio who made this game a month before the game is even released! good thing there will be no more army of two !

But that's not what it's called.

Edited by MaharajaMD

@sooty: Ahh I heard it called that at the end of the video and I just assumed since i'm not buying it anyways.... i've blown out my game budget for the next couple months and my heart belongs to Syndicate for favorite shooter for awhile.

Edited by Cretaceous_Bob

Wow, they made a whole game where you play as the faceless AI morons that follow the important (usually) player controlled characters around. I really don't understand how they could be so determined to make more of these games and yet can't do anything but fuck it up in truly impressive ways.
