Dave, you are killing me.

I'm glad they finally got around to Quick Looking this.

But if it's the Diamond Trust of London, why are they using dollars?

what what of what?

Posted by billmcneal

wow, a UN Inspector

Posted by Humanity

Oh man as much as I love Dave I am just falling asleep watching this.

Posted by kalmis

Really would love to play this, but don't know anyone who'd be interested.

So glad to have Dave doing some quick looks.

Gosh. Glad this finally came out. I remember first hearing about this dude on A Life Well Wasted

Posted by darklink6849

Very few quicklooks make me bored as hell.

This is definitely one of them.

cool music

I guess this strategy game doesn't have enough explosions for some people. I thought it was interesting and it seems like the type of game that might be fun to try to deconstruct the various rules and algorithms the AI uses. Not sure how I feel about such a random element in the game though (or is it really random?)

Posted by Redhorn

I got almost halfway through before the boredom killed me. RIP me

I hope I haven't been put on some kind of watch-list for watching this Quick Look.

This was kind of interesting until I realized Patrick doesn't know how to play.

Glad to see a QL of this, but sadly Patrick should have played a few more games. He seems to totally miss how the diamonds are obtained (you buy them in a sense). He would often send his agents to a zone with diamonds available but give the agents no money to spend on those diamonds. A simple way to understand it is this: You first pay your agents their salary (or bribe the other agents), the next time you can give money to agents it is for them to use to obtain diamonds. If you give them nothing at that point, they will not be able to "buy" anything.

UN Diamond Inspector: Just one of many fairy-tale jobs!

The music is epic. Really nice mix of world music and electronica.

this game is so fucking weird

Posted by semyeotic

there's also no math behind the UN inspector... if you're in the same region, you can BRIBE him to move. so the computer will pay him to move to your areas if you're not trying to do the same.

this game is badass. played a couple games against a buddy and loving it. music is SOOOOOO awesome.

Posted by TheVideoHustler

Holy shit. I will be buying this game right now.

Posted by SamuraiSeppuku

I may have to buy a DS just for this.

Antwerp wins. Always.

It's a huge shame that they didn't put as much effort into the graphics as they did with the music :(

Posted by AWalczak08

OMG that music is terrific.

Edited by Scarabus

It pains me to see he never figured out how to make an interface that didn't involve cramming every single game element into a tiny screen. Dat art and text is tiny.

Posted by randiolo

If it wasn't for Dave or Patrick i would have fallen asleep 2 min in.. this game seems boring as hell..

Posted by DeviTiffany

The music sounds like if Tropico 4 took place in Africa.

Posted by RenegadeDoppelganger

It's difficult to follow what's going on in this video. It feels like when someone tries to explain every rule of a large board game to you before you even play your first turn.

Posted by Abendlaender

This game seems kinda interesting but also a bit boring...

Posted by Slaegar

I wonder how the developer feels now that the 3DS eShop isn't completely terrible compared to the DSiware store. This is quite an interesting little game, but how much of it is through the story behind it. I'll have to watch and see.

Posted by Sless

Fantastic music. Wow. I wish I had someone local to play with, but I think I'll probably pick up the game anyway.

Posted by purspike

The music is complete win.

Edited by bybeach

You got bit by the highest payer. Gots to have deep pockets or access to other means. man just listening to Pat tell me how south it is going while I type this.

Edit, whats with not being able to move the video player to the end? I wanted to hear about where to access the history of this game? Okay, guess it has to be streaming now...getting it that way. Wish there was a quick way to link to Pat's article. sounds buried in time and content... maybe just a date would work here.

Posted by Scooter

I read this as "Diamond Thrust of London". But thanks Patrick and Dave, this was still HAWT!

Posted by smitty86

@bybeach: Just click on the game's wiki link and the link to the article is right at the top. No digging needed

Posted by cbarnes86

This would make for a pretty great iOS game

Posted by falling_fast

this looks really cool

Posted by AcidBrandon18

That music is great.

Posted by ttocs

The story behind the development of this game is fascinating. I love how this game finally came out after the certain doom. I think I might have to pick this up from their website.

I can barely pay attention to Patrick and Dave because the music is so awesome.

Edited by joeshabadoo

Awesome music. Mechanics comprehension fail

Def getting the soundtrack at the very least

Posted by CrimsonJester

Does the game have a moral aspect to it? Weird they would use this as the background and not touch on the deplorable aspects of the diamond trade.

Lovin' the music. :D

Posted by labman

Damn that UN inspector!!

Posted by The_Nubster

Not sure how I feel about that UN Inspector. Seems to cock-block the player at every turn.
