Thanks for the QL, this has been getting mediocre reviews but I was interested in seeing gameplay

Posted by JakePike218

Looks very interesting!

Posted by Humanity

The presentation is amazing but the gameplay seems underwhelming.

Muffley Strategic Command. Nice. President Muffley is a character from Dr. Strangelove. Style on the frontend looks amazing but the gameplay is lacking a bit.

This game looks awesome!

This looks pretty awesome, wasn't banking on it being this interesting, but I seem to be pleasantly wrong.

Edited by LarryDavis

I've been interested in this for a while but waited to see how it actually plays. Looks like that gambit paid off!

e: If Dan was there he would point out how the sound after stealth headshotting is the same sound as when items pop out of bodies in Metal Gear.

"All of that for $350 bucks... SPY SHIT!!!!" - My favorite quote from Giant Bomb in quite awhile... I'm still laughing. The delivery was awesome.

i think tf2 kind of cornered the market on that kind of music/video, but whatever

Edited by falling_fast

i bit my lip when jeff walked right past that one cabinet. in games like this i'm pretty ocd about picking up everything

edit: on the other hand, i can get behind jeff's TAKE OUT FUCKING EVERYONE method of playing stealth games. that's how i play them, anyway. although if i can i try to go nonlethal

I like the look and style, but this doesn't seem very interesting to play. Sort of like a super-simplified Mark of the Ninja. Randomizing the levels was probably a smart design decision, at least.

Posted by IronScimitar

Parts of it remind me of Killer 7. That alone is worth a buy for me.

I really like the way this looks. No PC version yet?

Weird, this is getting middling reviews all over, and people seem to agree. But I went from knowing nothing about the game to wanting to buy it in the space of this QL. S'pose I'll do some research first in case it's especially light on content or something, but I like the look of the core gameplay a lot.

Man, the mission menu music from CounterSpy has the same cues as the TMNT live-action movie soundtrack, and that is weird. Cool looking game indeed. I like that your health and ammo are pretty important, and don't automatically refill at the end of every mission, but I agree with Brad in that dropping dudes right and left isn't really that sneaky. I hope it comes out on a platform I own soon.

SPY SHIT

Great presentation, a bit bare mechanically.

And DEFCON 1 is the worst. #RememberWOPR

Posted by Ohvee

Being able to aim while in cover actually reminds me of Metroid: Other M.

Edited by PLWolf

Have this preloaded on my Vita and PS4. Vita version should unlock on the way to work and then PS4 version tonight.

@brad

DEFCON 1 is so bad, it means a nuclear war is about to happen.

DEFCON 1 has never happened. DEFCON 2 has happened though, during the Cuban Missile Crisis.

It's often misused in fiction, so it's understandable to think it's the other way around.

I guess someone likes to run.

Posted by bboymaestro

@gbrading haha yep. President Merkin Muffley, named after a wig for your thunder down under.

Posted by vikingdeath1

Probably not gonna get a Tales of Xillia 2 quicklook today (or Ever) are we?

That's fine, this game looks interesting.

Edited by Existence

Visually striking, but seems to lack in gameplay.

Edited by goreyfantod

The style of this game is No One Lives Forever all the way.

Posted by elko84

Might give this a try

This seems like a not as good version of Mark of the Ninja.

Posted by Devil240Z

Doesn't look very good. But I haven't liked really any of these new age indie platformers.

Posted by AMyggen

I absolutely love the look of this game, but the gameplay looks a bit basic.

Keep in mind reviews are often bullshit, rushed and incompatible with the actual experience anybody is going to have with the game. Heck, the version of this game reviewers played wasn't even the release version. Which is pretty evocative of the problems with critique in this industry. Websites care about hits, not sturdy information, so they get the earliest version possible and play the game as quickly as possible.

This game might not be great, sure. But I think things like Quick Looks are actually a much better representation of a player experience than a review shoveled out by somebody being paid to be efficient, not accurate.

I was sold on this game until I saw their Russian posters and signs. How hard is it to proof read this shit nowadays? Go to some Russian reddit or find an expat, crowd source the fuck out of your foreign language script. This offends me, it really does. Unless of course it's done on purpose which is highly doubtful.

Edited by ThatOneDudeNick

Preordered this because I wanted the $3 for buying this and Hohokum together. Doesn't make sense, but it seemed like a good idea. Totally forgot it was out today!

@lovecraft_bro Pretty sure it's on purpose.

1. Jeff knows running is too noisy
2. Jeff's constant running alerts every single enemy
3. Jeff doesn't understand what happened

I'm not finding anything out a future PC release... guess I'll have to dust off the PS3...

Really into everything about this game,

This looks like a good vita game. Might have to pick this up.

Posted by chilibean_3

There are a lot of cool things going on here. Though I'm not sure the part were you actually play the game is one of them.

Posted by forteexe21

I like that Brad says its easy to find everything and yet miss a couple of cabinets to loot. Gameplay also reminds me of Metroid Other M which im not sure is good or not.

I like this games style and the premise seems cool. I'm gonna give this a go.

Brad wasn't playing breh, cool your jets.

Posted by TheVGamer

As a "connoisseur" of stealth games, I really don't like 2D stealth games. Putting a stealth game onto a 2D realm is too constraining, multiple routes aspect of the stealth genre has to be severely downplayed and the AI has to be dumbed down even more in response. What's left is an unsatisfying and hollow experience where the pretender of a stealth game asks me to pretend it's a stealth game as well. Even Mark of the ninja, the pinnacle of 2D stealth games, I found to be underwhelming and unsatisfying.

I do like the artstyle though, that cheesy spy artstyle never gets old.

I know but he could have still mentioned it to Jeff. If they didn't skip the cabinets, they may have had enough for the persuasion darts. Not really shouting/angry at them, just an observation. If I was, there would be a lot more caps and exclamation marks.

You don't get money from kills, @brad and @jeff. You only get money from intel pickups. You can be well on money without killing everyone.
