It's really hard to figure out whether the game is broken or cricket is happening.

I don't ever want to play a sports game that I have to learn against Dan. He went from fully stupid to utter domination in minutes. Scary.

Plus this game of cricket got super-exciting towards the end. I was on the edge of my seat to see if Jeff would score with those last few hits. Came down to the very last pitch, too - so awesome.

I'm kinda surprised they were allowed to use the Bradman name, considering he is knighted and deceased...

@bipa: besides the word cricket none of that made sense!

This was hilarious. Cannot wait until the next Cricket adventure. Danny better be there, too.

If the batsman gets out for a score of zero, it is referenced as a duck.

That's usually when cricket becomes exciting, lots of sitting around waiting and drinking until the last few balls of the match, unless one side has completely destroyed the other early on.

Just imagine all those "Chicken" advertisements were actually for KFC.

Thanks for the laughs guys... it was hard for me to watch but even I couldn't stop laughing at you taking the piss out of my game!

@computerandy9:

We licensed Sir Donald Bradman from the Bradman foundation.

@bipa KFC are everywhere at cricket games but couldn't get KFC on board so we thought we'd take the piss.... that and our competition's CEO (Ashes 2013) was said to have looked like Colonel Sanders ;)

- YOU BLOODY RIPPA!

Danny to Dan: "Okay... You know what a stick is?"

and

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

Dan: "There's a joke there."

Also, "Bloody Ripper" is Australian slang for "Totally awesome".

Chicken is totally awesome.

You made a great game. I'm really enjoying it.

"You fucking idiot"

Best line I've heard in a QL in a long time

Posted by moondogg

This actually looks like it might be alright, once you have the controls down.

I haven't laughed this hard in ages.

Best opening and ending to a quicklook EVER.

This might be a serious contender for best Quick Look of 2014.

The lack of ability to read is astounding.

@rossatbigant: it actually looks like the first decent cricket game in a long time, nice job

Posted by RossAtBigAnt

Thanks @james_hayward @posh - the GB guys super-human abilities made it look easy but it's quite a difficult game to master :p

Winner winner chicken dinner, for Dan.

And here we go. Getting ready to be insulted in.... 3, 2, 1

He's right though, Bradman was dragon born

Posted by ChanceFurlong

They didn't even get onto the subject of silly point and silly mid off. I love how even Danny couldn't figure out the ducks xD

I grew up playing cricket - this QL is considerably more entertaining than that.

Posted by Oxyrain

Hey @rossatbigant, I just bought the game due to this video and so far batting in the nets is really relaxing.

Also, does the PC version of AFL Live 2012 still work? If so, could you send the Giant Bomb guys a copy?

Posted by MeatSim

This chicken must be the best ever for them to play though a whole game of cricket just to get it.

Posted by Halberdierv2

@hustlerlt: it is weird. but a wonderful kind of weird, if you grew up with it. also, those titles make sense in context. also, this.

Funniest Quick Look in ages!!!

The game itself actually looks really decent ...shame it's a cricket game.

Posted by warpig87

@oxyrain: Batting at the nets with a bowling machine is great. I could literally do that all day

So far today we've had five hours batting from England and already they're nought for nought!

Edited by TinyGrasshopper

Something about Dan's ignorant American schtick bothers me for some reason. It seems more wilful than it should when it's coming from him. Weird, he seems like a cool dude apart from that. You could tell Danny was getting mildly annoyed by it in this video.

Also, the duck is what happens when the batsman (batter) scores no runs (points). a duck = 0 runs. It's as embarassing as getting struck out because you went through all the trouble of coming up to the wicket (the plate) and then failing horribly. That's why it's a sad duck.

one of the all time great quick looks

Wha... What the fuck did I just watch?!

Dan's desire to be the "bad boy of cricket" set me on a path I couldn't get off until this was done.

So here you are, I guess.

Awesomeeee~~

Now we need a version of that chicken ad, but instead it says "Rykert - you bloody ripper"

Why is the Knight Riders logo a Roman soldier?

Edited by Capt_Ventris

I hope their player creator engine can handle Mitchel Johnson's mo.

Edit: Well they certainly modelled his aggro!
Also all the chicken sponsorship boards are there because KFC is one of the big cricket sponsors in Australia. Big Ant were taking the piss with the slogan as the other big chicken chain's (Red Rooster) popular sub is called a "Rippa".

There we go, way too much info on take away chicken in Australia.

so dan's a klassic simpsons fan eh???? more and more he sounds exactly like me (T1 > T3, but i still think T3 was worthwhile)

'You can't... wiggle something to make the release go faster?'

'... there's a joke in there somewhere.'

Classic Dan

This is why it's a bad idea to make games about dead people.

That was one of the funniest quick looks I've seen here. Thank you guys for always making us laugh. Oh man more games that no one can figure out how to play

Posted by xXHesekielXx

You bloody rippers! Ha ha. Haven't laughed so such in a long time. Great QL duders!

Posted by xhaktmtjdnf

No Dan is not crazy, a flight of beers is a real thing. It's just a sampler of different brews and yes it does look like a cricket bat.

Pretty much English cricket in a nutshell.

Not really. If anything it looks like a paddle.

Between this and the Ashes video, I'm pretty sure I totally understand how to play Cricket now. Weird.
