I bet the mark is some kind of ninja mark.

ok, well, that's it >_> but Shank 2 was released relatively recently...

Posted by Purple_eye

I hope the protagonists name is Mark.

Posted by rmanthorp

@BeachThunder: Haha, I know what you mean though! There is only like 11 guys at Klei as well. Crazy!

This looks pretty awesome.

Can't wait for this.

Ni-ni-ni-ni-ninja!

Mini Ninja's has broken my mind.

Edited by fox01313

Surprised that Jeff forgot the other ninja characteristics, they love to say 'get over here', turn invisible and/or rip someone's head & spine out after shooting them with ice. Does look a lot more interesting in theme & gameplay than Shank so definitely will dive into this one.

I love what I played at PAX and want this game NOOOOOOOOW. Also, PAX People: not cool putting this game way off in some weird corner!

Ugh! EX QLs are the worst. Plus Devs always bring out Brad's inner used car salesman. Only thing worse is when he tries to sell Blizzard games.

Posted by vhold

This is one of the better Quick Look EXs, because instead of just bringing in a salesman spouting off a bunch of selling points, the GiantBomb guys are pointing out design elements, and this guy is talking a bit about the process that led to that.

The hours per dollar thing can be messy, but I think people want to know if a game is longer than two hours if they are being asked to pay $15.

Every time I think I'm done with QLEXs, they pull me back in!

I'd go in a different direction and say... that video game journalists shouldn't be asking that question to the company and presenting the answer as truth.  They should be playing the game, and that information should come from the review.

Constructive stuff. Any thoughts on the game?

This is probably the case for a lot of people, yeah. But it's unfortunate that people think that way sometimes. Journey was only a couple hours long, if you took your time, and I have absolutely no regrets about plunking down $15 for it. It's all about what you get out of it, not about how much time you put in.

Any time I catch myself thinking that $10 or $15 is too much to spend on a game, I just try to put it in perspective with other things that cost me the same amount of money, like seeing a movie at the theater or buying myself lunch at work, and realize that I'm owning the fruit of someone's hard work and creativity for a similar amount.

Never played Shank, but this looks pretty cool. I am glad the stealth genre is still getting some (presumably) good games with this and Hitman.

Posted by eduardopato

Seems nice! But its a shame that is Xbox exclusive :(

Posted by adam1808

I keep wanting to like what Klei does but they've failed to really deliver each time. The fact that they're ditching trying to make Shank good and are taking a shot at something different earns them the benefit of the doubt I reckon.

Posted by DragonNinja789

What? it comes out on my birthday, I am excite!

Edited by WJist

I am TOTALLY that guy in stealth games that wants to sneak by without killing anybody. The last Deus Ex and Splinter Cell games eventually forced me to :/

Posted by geekbot

This looks awesome. It's nice to see a game company really taking the time to make a good stealth game. Looking forward to finding out more. :D

Posted by AssInAss

Oh cool, didn't know they got the Kill Screen magazine creator as the writer.

Whether you like the game or not, you can see the Splinter Cell Conviction influence with the black-and-white to color aesthetic, last known position, and it not being the end of the game when you're spotted which are great features to take away from a not-so-great game. I was grown up on Tenchu on PS1, and seeing developers learn and improve on the accessibility of the genre is great when you'd think this genre would be dead (along with horror where the gameplay isn't as empowering and not conducive to mass market), if we only had the big-budget game market.

@DragonNinja789: Me too duder. I'll be getting this as a little b-day present for myself for sure. Looks really fun.

Posted by SolidOcelot

I skipped out on Shank 2 because it was too similar to the first one. But this game looks fantastic.

Posted by emem

I'd get the PC version, looks fun.

Posted by jesterroyal

I don't want every quick look to be an EX but I will say I've been enjoying all these EXes thoroughly. Throw in a good dev and you get some industry perspective.

Posted by MasterRain

Wow this looks so well made and polished, don't know how fun it is, but it seems perfectly made.

Posted by eloj

Looks cool. For some reason it made me think about Gunpoint (video), but they're not THAT similar in concept.

Posted by Sweep

Game looks badass! Also really agree with what this guy was saying about stealth games being opaque. Definitely interested in this now.

Edited by JamesJeux007

I was already interested, reading Patrick's article about stealth mechanics and stealth games in general, but seeing the game in action now REALLY makes me want to play it. It looks really fun ! I'll probably have to wait for the mandatory "Xbox to Steam" time, like every indie game though. But hey, I can wait :'D

Also, that was a great Quick Look EX ! I mean Nels talked about a lot of development stuff and his thoughts about stealth games in general. That was really interesting !

Posted by JackSukeru

Dev was talky, but mostly non bullshit, I like him.

As for the game I was SOLD, I'm not really into the character artstyle but it animates well and everything else looks so goddarn smooth and well considered. I checked the wiki page during the latter half of the QL and was so relieved when they mentioned that they're considering a PC version.

Posted by charlie_victor_bravo

Luckily art in running game looks better than the screenshot.

Posted by DarkbeatDK

The plural of Ninja is "Ninja"... There's no such thing as Ninjas

Posted by MooseyMcMan

This game looks neat.

Posted by RampageAssassin

Great Quick Look guys ! The game is looking tops and that terror ninja will be my first point of call.

One of many, many things that Ninja have in common with Pokémon.

Posted by D_W

This game looks rad. Hopefully it comes to PC

Posted by Village_Guy

This looks awesome, consider me sold.

We seriously need more stealth games, 2D or 3D.

What about that is fun, if I may ask you or anyone else? Is it just the extra challenge? I always liked sneaking past dudes when it made sense and icing them when that made more sense in stealth games. I loved the stealth combat in Conviction but thought it was not so good in Deus Ex: HR, despite generally liking that game as well.

Posted by Ravelle

Another amazing xbox exlusive game I can't play. :(

Posted by Rafaelfc

game looks dope!

curious to see how it pans out... and hopefully it's a Klei game I can finally get into. I loved the visual style of Shank but could never get into it.
