Sure wish I could get those 22 minutes of my life back! Oh well.

Try this: Say "Blue Estate" 3 times fast.

I bet you say "Bluest State."

Don't know what they are talking about, this looks cute to me. Hit & miss with the jokes...

Posted by ToasterDylan

Ugh. I thought I was done seeing this game after reviewing it.

Everything about it is turrible. The second main character is only remotely likable.

Tsk, tsk, Danny, ****talking the Saturn. If you have access to a Saturn and you're using it to play 3D games, with a few rare exceptions, you're doing it wrong.

Also, Dan and Jeff are driving me nuts by ignoring all the bright-white-glowy-horribly-out-of-place Good Luck Cats that just scream "SHOOT ME FOR A BONUS!" ;)

That bugged the shit out of me too.

Yeah the cats, and when they couldn't open the door with the wood blocking it. And were blaming it on the game not catching up with them??? Its a shit game but you shouldn't call it out as the game's fault when you miss something OBVIOUS. (I got a "these guy plays games for a living?" feeling - but I assume in the quicklook room it was harder to see the blinking boards?). You missed the joke that he kicked a blocked door and fell back. Wasn't a good joke. But it was obvious.You had to then unblock it. Instead they thought the game was broken... Its tough watching other people play sometimes.
Still they called it like they saw it, game was poor.

Just what we needed, another game with gross transphobic jokes! Ugh.

Man does this ever look boring.

Edited by DannyHibiki

This game looka like a shit.

Edited by TheCheese33

There's a difference between clever offensive humor and "mean" humor. Blazing Saddles is clever offensive humor. Blue Estate is mean humor; all it does is punch down.

And yes, those transphobic jokes are awful. It's not being "politically correct" or "offended to be offended," the jokes are shitty, and all they do is play into the dehumanization of trans men and women. We're living in a climate right now where some geezer on America's Got Talent sings about attacking a trans woman and is applauded by the audience and judges. We're living in a climate where trans women are frequently being attacked in public for simply being themselves, not one pedestrian goes out of their way to help them, and the attackers use a "gay panic" defense to get out of it. Garbage games like this only contribute to the absolutely insane discrimination and violence trans men and women face every day.

When you defend games like this, please consider what you are defending.

I strongly believe that light gun games are totally worthless unless you're playing them with a light gun.

Hilarious.

Dan, you need to learn what nonplussed means. It's been two times that you've used that word incorrectly.

Unfortunately for the sake of communication, "nonplussed" has mutated to the point that it now can mean "calm, unruffled" as well as its traditional "thrown for a loop" definition. Blame it on English being so fluid.

No. We must not yield. There's a perfectly good word already that I'm convinced everyone who misuses "nonplussed" is really searching for: "nonchalant." Leave "nonplussed" alone. And keep "bemused" out of it too. I have chosen this hill die on.

@squidracerx: These kinds of jokes perpetuate the idea that homophobia, transphobia, sexism, racism, rape, stereotypes etc. are not only OK, but funny. They also imply these types of things are not serious matters. Jokes are not free of criticism. Also, if you're cis, you don't get to decide whether it's offensive or not.

That Off-World Interceptor game's cutscenes are actually pretty funny.

Posted by rusalkagirl

Yeah, I was done with this when they said the lady's bra size.

Edited by KoolAid

@squidracerx: FYI, the transphobic joke is not that the fat guy is wearing a bra. The joke is that the character Apple Adams (as in Adam's apple) is implied to be transgendered. She is described as "not a friend, not a girl"

This is considered transphobic because a trans woman would consider herself to be a girl. And to say that they are "really a boy" is considered to be invalidating their identity.

This is usually a big point of contention because most people take the concepts of sex and gender for granted and use them interchangeably, usually because their gender/sex combo is accepted by society and they never have to think about it. But sex and gender are actually different things. Sex is physical and gender is identity. In other words, Male/female is not the same as boy/girl. So a trans women who is born male would still be (and very much wants to be) considered a girl/women.

This game is actually surprisingly fun. Excuse our jaded hosts; they've been in this line of work too long.

I think the fact that people are getting mad about the jokes and people are getting mad at people for getting mad about the jokes is probably what the devs were going for. I personally don't care and the game just seems shit even if I don't find the Apple Adam's thing horribly offensive but I think the devs knew in this day and age that would happen, but hey, any publicity is good publicity. If the game you have to make is some cut and paste arcade rail shooter and you don't have the talent to make it really good, makes sense they went that route

I feel like I have yet to hear Dan speak disparagingly about... anything, really. I guess the day he sees a movie or plays a game and says "huh, this isn't very good" it will be heralded as the worst piece of media of all time.

Just wait until The Walking Dead comes up in conversation on the Bombcast, Dan really hates that game, despite only playing half of the first episode. From what I read too he doesn't think Telltale's adventure games are considered games.

heh. Some funny jokes in this. Also some terrible writing.

Edit: Also why did it disappear from the front page and is showing up as upcoming? Or was it never on there?

This does not seem like a game I would want to play.

"We're doing a Stranglehold."

Granted, Stranglehold is a 'sequel' to Hard Boiled and Hard Boiled did it first, so it's sort of accurate...

Edited by CaptainTiptop

This game actually doesn't have Move support because the devs claim this control scheme is "better."

Oh and I think there's an Xbox One port that uses Kinect? Yeesh.

Whats up with Bruce Willis? Is he just cashing checks at this point? He seems to almost relish acting like he doesnt give a crap in movies these days. If you ever heard Kevin Smith retell the story of what it was like to deal with Willis while making Cop Out, you know that the chances of the next Die Hard (and they are making another one, according to the interwebs), being any good is less than zero.

Dan Ryckert, don't bother with Die Hard 5/A Good Day To Die Hard.It's not Die Hard.

@icantbestopped: Judging by your use of that word you're not very well-versed on how to act like a regular human being.

Edited by HatKing

Man, looks terrible. It's weird how some people support crass humor even when it comes off like it was written by twelve year olds. There's good ways to be dirty and offensive, this isn't it. It stumbles through its jokes and sprays as many half-assed punchlines as the terrible writers can come up with. It's barely ever funny, never clever, and when I accidentally laugh at it, it's at the expense of terrible fucking design. I'm only comfortable being this negative about a game when the designers are so obviously negative people. These guys make being a dick to them easy.

Posted by VooDooPC

I'm getting a strong Shadow Warrior vibe from this game.
