Edited by TournamentOfHate

Danny is working for the wrong site.

"We haven't even started talking about Leg Before Wicket."

"Is that like Bros. before Hoes?"

A friend of mine in highschool tried to explain how this game worked once.....

Wooooo Danny

Edited by AMyggen

Okay, this looks to be a dream lineup. Let's go!

Posted by MachoFantastico

Oh my lordy... It's Danny (who should totally be on Giant Bomb all the time by the way)... just sayin!

Edited by Dietomaha

Oh man. As someone who knows absolutely nothing about cricket, this is absolutely hilarious.

Edited by parentalcon

Yeah!! More Danny! Always awsome to hear from this guy. Now it's only a matter of time until he will be a part of Giant Bomb...hopefully.

I requested for the gb sports team to do a quick look of this yesterday, looks like my prayers were answered.

Posted by MattyFTM

When codemasters used to develop these games they were pretty good. But this just looks awful. Completely broken.

DANNY!!!!

Irish taking over this office son!

Edited by LackingSaint

Danny is definitely my number one pick if GB ever brought in a new dude. Yes, even more than Jeff Green.

I knew from the moment I saw this yesterday in the Coming Soon box that I was going to love it, and then you guys bring in a ringer at the last minute anyway. Giant Bomb Sports Team 4 LIFE.

I've been loving the Gamespot video content since Danny arrived in the US recently.

But this is the real reason I was so hyped for his arrival. Giant Bomb x O'Dwyer 2014.

EDIT: Maaaan this is a terrible cricket game. Brian Lara Cricket is still the best version I've seen, although some around 2003-5 were alright too if I remember correctly. Cricket is still the most fun sport to explain to people though; this video is a perfect example of why.

Oh, and for reference: you can't be given out LBW if the ball bounces on the leg-side of the wicket (the half of the pitch, lengthwise, that the batsman is standing in). ALSO... they won't give an LBW out unless the bowling team appeal. Because... cricket rules are ridiculous. But making you press a button for that is kinda dumb.

Danny o'donnell :D

First Danny appearance in a QL ? Hopefully far from the last.

(also, I bet it's a really weird experience for him)

"I like how you've got the Irishman to explain cricket" Exactly my thoughts. Would have loved Justin Calvert and Danny both on this!

What a season... what a season.

Edit: What the fuck is this sport? Jesus, I thought baseball was complicated.

Edited by Saladxaxsis

oh this will be good

My Aussie friend tried to explain cricket to me during the summer ashes, completely gone out my head now. Danny, ya gotta help me

Posted by rachelepithet

Holy shit, if that's Cricket, then what's the one where you take a bat and putt golf but instead of into a hole, through a little gate?

Corr blimey prawn barbie, that's not a knife............

I got nothin, honest.

Posted by krlayne

This game really makes the game of cricket look so bad. It is actually a fun game to play. Like any other sport it has its peculiarities and nuances but overall it is quite good.

Edited by thainatos

Hell of a ride, Jeff. Hell of a ride, Vinny.

Posted by xtafxfoulfellow

Stoked that Danny tranferred to San Fran! Hopefully, we'll see (hear) more of him on Giant Bomb.

That's Croquet.

Don't worry, I totally mix them up too.

Instant classic right here!

Posted by CandleJakk

This game has the worst Davild 'Bumble' Lloyd impersonator ever.

Only 10 minutes in and this is one of my favorite quick looks of the year.

Isn't that where you make little tea cosies out of yarn?

I'm only partially joking...

Edited by face15

As an Australian who doesn't really like cricket but has somehow picked up a rough understanding of how it works; this is the funniest thing in the world. Even Danny has a very tentative grasp on the rules of the game.
