"Kill 40 priests and you win!" -- Brad Shoemaker

Posted by Asmundergunderson

So would this be a tower offense game then? 0_o

Posted by BeachThunder

There's this little game that's based on a biblical story, you may have heard of it.

It's oddly fitting that it seems no one can agree on how to pronounce "Bable".

Good sir, I salute you for your observation. I never would have caught that.

Yeah, but that little game deviates from the source material. Just a bit. A tiny bit, really.

Well, that was a waste of everyone's time. Please QL Krater.

You must be new around here. Welcome to Giant Bomb! Sadly, the editorial team picks the games they want to QL themselves, it's not by user request, but it's still a wonderful website, and I'm sure you'll have a lovely time here. :-)

They are not mispronouncing Babel... It is technically pronounced as Ba-ble similar to how people pronounce Babylon.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Babylon

The original (Hebrew in this case) pronunciation is bābel. Not babble, not ba-ble. It's the same way in Swedish, which is why I noticed it. English seldom matches the "correct" pronunciation of other languages, in my experience.

I don't want to blow anyone's mind or anything, but Brad doesn't seem very good at this game.

tower defense but take the strategy out of the game

Ryan, Greece stole that font from mesopotamia's ancient language. Which was just lines like that.

I thought that this QL would seem short and sweet, being under 15 minutes. 5 minutes in, I started zoning out. I forced myself to watch the rest of it, but man, this game looks brain numbing.

Brad thinking Iraq (Mesopotamia) and Greece are not far away from each other both physically and culturally was pretty sad.

Even in the modern world they are fairly close to each other. Socially the ancient Greeks spawned from the Minoan civilization, which had close ties to the Akkadians, who were the progenitors of the Babylonians.

This is literally what I remember reading in the Bible. Did anybody notice that if you rearrange the world "Brad" you get "God?" Blew my mind, man.

Wait.

This game seems boring as shit.

This game is not looking good.

Posted by ZmillA

lots of blasphemy in this QL

Posted by Veektarius

This doesn't look like any more of a game than when I was 10 and imported cities into Simcity 2000 so I could destroy them in the city editor.

Posted by thaneofcawdor

Credenza.

Posted by agoaj

Finally, a tower offence game!

Posted by radioactivez0r

Don't you sort of feel like an asshole playing this? Killing a bunch of little guys working as a team to build something amazing. Also it looks insanely dull.

Posted by eccentrix

I've never heard it as Baybel.

Edited by gakushya

just hit the "confound language" button

Posted by clush

I think it's kind of ironic that, now that the world is finally coming back around to some sort of lingua franca (ie. English), people will always be fighting over how 'Babel' is pronounced. Well played, God :)

I read that as Bagel Rising and had my hunger-fuelled hopes dashed upon the jagged rocks of reality.

I would play that game. And download the schmear DLC straight away.

Posted by White

I guess they've finally made a true Tower Defense game.

Posted by vhold

I get the feeling that the Beta testing process of this game consisted entirely of "Is this a game?"  "Yes.. I suppose but..."  "Great! Ship it!"

Thanks for the condescending welcome!
 
Fortunately I'm not new here, and will continue to love the site despite your best effort.
 
PS.
 I did say "please".

@huser: He was talking about the mainstream anime style used in Tera, though yeah even then there are differences especially in character design. But it definitely shares a huge influence.

I think they just saved a lot of people money, and time is money, therefore you are .. wrong on the internet

Sure. I didn't mean to completely throw Brad under the bus (I mean Vinny asked the question in the first place), just that to residents of Korea and Japan, suggesting ANY significant parity/synonymy might be grounds to get slugged in the neck. And thus, subtle nuance in a sociohistorical context might not be in the purview of our correspondent from the Cackalacks, ie calling Brad out about not knowing the vast distance culturally and geographically between Babylon and Greece is probably not really a fruitful endeavor.

Aw c'mon, show us the Kinect even if you don't wanna. Half of the entertainment of these Quick Looks is found in your suffering. Delicious, delicious suffering.
