Don Bradman should appear regularly on GB's videos. Either to nod or shake his head when the Bombcrews say something.

Oh, and in case someone hasn't explained it yet: If you get out without scoring any runs, it's called a duck, and is signified with an actual image of a duck (cartoon or otherwise); if you get out on your first ball faced, it's a golden duck.

The quick look we've all been waiting for.

YOU LIL' RIPPA!

Posted by Quantical

Awesome quick look, thanks. Might buy this on Steam at some point.

@stevemax: Bloody oath it was. I was actually in bed and just thought I'd grab the iPad to check in on Giant Bomb before going to sleep; I'm so hopped up after that I think I'll be up for a little while longer now.

The next Madden game needs to have the same title screen but with virtual John Madden.

The various grunting and other noises Dan makes while playing games is really starting to bother me...

Edited by ThunderStorm101

Best QL ive seen in ages, especially as someone who plays this game and it is genuinally fantastic and probably the best cricket game ever released. But boy was this hilarious

Posted by druv

It actually looks like a really competent game!

Edited by Humanity

You can tell the defeat in Danny's voice where all the funny European jokes have started to loop around for the millionth time.

Sometimes it's the most unnecessary features that become the most entertaining.

"...700mph. Give-or-take."

Best line in the whole video.

This game actually looks good, unlike the Ashes Cricket game that came out last year.

They could use DOA boob tech for his double chin and jowls.

"You can't, like, wiggle something to make the release go faster?"

"There's a joke in there..."

#TeamDan&Danny

Every goddamn Cricket game is golden Quick Look material :D

Danny- " You can't wiggle something to make the release go faster?"

Dan-(Quietly) "There's a joke in there."

I spit root beer on my keyboard laughing.Well done gentleman, well done.

I love that somehow KFCs domination of cricket advertising has even managed to make it's way in to this game. Also, as someone who understands cricket, watching this was so very painful, but so very funny. Jeff having no idea how the hitting was working, Dan not realising he has to place the ball, and that he can move where it bounces, brilliant. It oddly got my patriotic side going when they were making fun of cricket though, which is odd, seeing as how I find it really boring (kinda like baseball), and how this is easily the most entertaining that cricket has ever been.

Haven't laughed so much in a quicklook for a while.

Posted by Kitnighty

Long Night.

The entirety of Bot Colony.

And the first five minutes of this.

Quick Looks are on a goddamn roll lately.

A baseball fan like Jeff making fun of cricket is amusing in the same way as a Fox News anchor making fun of other Western countries health care systems.

Best quick look ever.

Posted by Ghost_Cat

Now I know I have to get this game for the sole purpose of the Don-Bradman-be-Bossin' simulator.

If only they could get someone who actually understood cricket, and would explain to Jeff why he is swinging wrong (trying to hit on the off-side for an on-side ball) this QL would not be so frustrating. I know ppl are enjoying this, but I can only watch so many deliveries without anything actually happening.

Posted by PatODay

I want to buy this game simply to manipulate Don Bradman's head.

Posted by Sterling

I will now be buying this game.

Posted by Rich666

Best title screen ever. Outstanding quick look.

Edited by JamesM

In case anyone actually cares, the reason cricket bowlers take a run-up is that they're not allowed to bend their arm when delivering the ball. That's the difference between bowling and pitching (or just throwing). And it's also pretty much the full extent of my knowledge of cricket.

Posted by Lyfeforce

Dear lord, this is one of the best things ever on this site.

Edited by NoelVeiga

I get it now.

Dan was hired solely to be a laugh track for Jeff.

Good call. Totally worth it.

Those two alone make me ponder video of the year, or even the entire site, although I might still feel the title belongs to Euro Truck Simulator 2.

Hot damn Jeff, dropping a Young Ones reference. You don't know what British places are called, but you know what's important.

Posted by extragingerbrew

As an American I can say this on good authority "I have no fucking idea what is going on with this damn game". But I sure laughed my ass off at this quick look. Danny can you please make a "How to play Cricket" instructional video for us Americans, that would be great thanks...

Edited by MATATAT

The only thing I know about cricket is that I used to play it in primary school when I lived in Australia and I don't know if anyone knew what they were doing.

If tonight's UPF doesn't look like this, I'm going to be very upset.

Wickets? Oh you mean the sticks.

GEORGE: Fine. Steal the battery. Now, all right, here is the Frogger. This is the front door, and this is the outlet.

SLIPPERY PETE: What's that?

GEORGE: The outlet?

SLIPPERY PETE: Mm-hmm.

GEORGE: That's where the electricity comes out.

SLIPPERT PETE: Oh, you mean the holes.
