30 seconds in and I can tell this is gonna be good.

When Dan was told he could look at the control layout he sounded surprised, as if he didn't know such a thing existed. He really doesn't play a lot of games does he.

5 minutes in, and I hope they never leave the start screen.

DJ Ryckert is on the case. And this time it is all cricket.

Yeah man, Dan doesn't play many games, you're so right.

Love a sports QL, even when they're dissing the great game of Australia's Cricket.

Well, this promises to be a quality look at one of my nation's top sporting pastimes. If there's not a dodgy mangling of our accent I'll be sorely disappointed. Or, failing that, a mention of *spit* Foster's.

Nah, he just forget things....a lot.

I'm almost glad I don't find absolutely everything as hilarious as Dan. I mean I'm surprised he hasn't killed himself laughing so hard all the time.

"I like the idea of Australia." Dan Rykert 2014

If I die of laughter I blame it on this quick look.

On the other hand, the speed at which he picks things up is... eerie.

This was hilarious.

Edited by James_Hayward

arghh....15 mins in...

I updated the game wiki yesterday with the controls as I thought that the whole bowling and batting thing would likely be hard to figure out without instruction... It is sort of entertaining listening to Jeff go nuts though... (sorry Jeff)

This Quick Look had it all: laughs, spills, and dramatic sports finisher thrills.

the spoils of the last week or so has reaffirmed that GB is in a good direction,

Vinny doing his thing,

O'Dwyer being the awesome dude he is,

Dan, being a child, but in the best way possible,

This QL was gold, all the way through.

Yay Giant Bomb

Don Bradman is actually short for Dovahkiin Bradman.

That opening was fucking priceless

Dunno about that. He seems to know a lot about certain types of games (console platformers, etc.) We just need to get him into a wider range of gaming.

Posted by hustlerlt

So I did some research about Don Bradman and apparently he's the best sportsman of all time. He's better than Pele, Ty Cobb and Michael Jordan. Well, that's the case according to Wikipedia, and it is always right. Also, there's a guy named Sourav Ganguly, who's nicknames are The Warrior Prince and The God of the Off Side. Cricket is weird.

15:30 - Danny: "You can't like wiggle something to make the release go faster?" Dan: "There's a joke" ROFL

Edit: Maybe that's what the "rub ball" button is for? I also need to remember not to drink while watching. Just snorted coffee through my nose at "He's eaten all the chicken."

Posted by Mistzero

It's funny Jeff chose Kolkata Knight Riderss as a joke because they won their league championship last season.

Oh I don't just mean gaming. I used to follow him when he was at GI, his memory can be something else.

Haven't laughed this hard in a while!

Oh, shit...I can't...can't take it...too fucking funny! Please, PLEASE, don't put @Jeff, @DanRyckert and @DannyODwyer in the same room again! I'll die of laughter...

Legendary Quick Look.

Edited by buzz_clik

Even though he's not playing well, Dan's run rate is 6.28 at one point. Pretty respectable, all things considered.

Also, you can tell this is Australian cricket made by an Australian software company because they use the correct wickets/runs format for the score. I find this very satisfying.

The Ashes are just well done chicken.

Edited by LarryDavis

I am 80% sure Dan is a 13 year old that somehow became fully grown overnight, ala Big. And I love it.

Also this game probably has the best start screen since Riddick.

Posted by James_Hayward

holy shit - that was probably one of my all time favorite quick looks.

It'll probably never happen but I really want to see this again on UPF sometime.

Don Bradman Simulator 2014

Posted by Shtinky

QLOTY, and Jeff and Dan were actually enjoying the game by the end.

Posted by Supraluminal

I have to take a break at minute 4 to let my sides recover. Let me just say, while I don't know who decided to put time and money into making the start screen a Don Bradman marionette simulator, or why they thought it was a good idea at the time... I feel like their choice has been vindicated.
