This PR dude reading his inane prepared statements is already lowering my interest in this game 5 minutes in, and I finished the first one.

Quick Look EX's are the worst.

One of the best Quick Looks ever was with Trenched

just depends who's doing them.

This looks like more Shank from where I am in the video. I did not like Shank at all, I would go so far as to say Shank is the worst gaming experiences I had this generation.

Shank 2?? Really???

You play WoW.

I was really looking forward to Shank, but in the end, the game was so shallow and ordinary. So far, this looks like more of the same.
Posted by Maajin

The one thing Shank was missing was online co-op. So instead of doing that, no co-op at all? Great.

I will be so happy when they stop running the Dead Island ad before videos.

Edited by A_Dog

So, they re-worked the controls, and re-did the art to make it look and play the same?

Brilliant question dodge at 2:00...

I'm not sure who asked for this.

The horde mode looks neat though.

Environments are more interactive.... like in this one part of the level, in this one fight. -_-

@Phonics: Depends on who's doing them. The DoubleFine ones are great, The El Shaddai one was pretty funny. It's just that, very few game devs are really great at promotion, that's why most development houses have PR guys.

Watched 3 minutes and couldn't watch anymore, this is the exact wrong way for developers to present themselves in a Quick Look EX and it's painful to watch.

He did not dodge the question, listen closely. He answered positively, they had to staff up.

"The combat system from the last one was really great, everyone really enjoyed it" 
 
I'm assuming they're referring strictly to everyone who really enjoyed it and not all the people who found it a mediocre mashathon?

They might actually be nervous. I remember GB's reception to the final version of Shank 1 was less than pleasant.
Posted by Tennmuerti

Damn I still love those brutal animations.

Posted by AaronChance

Instead of listening to their fans, they probably should have listened to the people who played the demo for five minutes and never touched the game again. This doesn't look like it solves any of the problems I had with the original.

Posted by csl316

Turns out I really want this.

Posted by ElixirBronze

The atmosphere among the the quick lookers is so tense it will make serious cat green... except for when patrick breaks the ice here and there.

Posted by Rayeth

The art looks like Thrid Strike it's so fluid. Still not too into this kind of game, but GOD DAMN it looks good.

Yup. This is why I often dislike Quick Look EX-es. They're gold when it's Johnny V or John Drake or Brad from Double Fine or someone else the guys are friends with. But this stuff is just painfully awkward.

Posted by dvorak

The only Quick Look EX's I've liked are the Double Fines ones. For the most part the rest of them are just too awkward to enjoy.

Posted by UltimAXE

I'm really not a fan of these kinds of PR spun previews for games. Yeah, that's just the way the industry typically is, but I come to GB for the more candid answers and discussions.

Beyond that, Shank 1 was fun, but I ultimately became bored and shelved it. I get the feeling that Shank 2 will be a very similar experience.

Posted by JohnRabbit

it's always interesting to see when developers/publishers come in with a canned presentation for their game and it directly conflicts with the candor and inquisitiveness of the giant bomb crew.

and by interesting i mean cringe-worthy and eye-roll inducing.

I suppose but it was in such a weird way, he used the question to boast about new features in the game. I don't know, I just found it noticeable.

Adblock

Posted by darkvare

i relly dislike shanks artstyle the weird animation really puts me off

Posted by cikame

First one was a great but flawed game, seems like they've made the combat more tactile and hey, who doesn't love a good wave based survival mode.

Will check this one out.

Posted by h0lgr

The art somehow looks worse than Shank 1.

Very jarring, the transition between art styles.

Stuff like the explosive barrels look scrawny and have a very hand-drawn feel, and that's fine, but not when you mix it with other stuff that looks way cleaner like the characters and the fire which have a comic book cleanliness to them.

Also, the developers themselves seem extremely uninterested to show how awesome their game is and seem to have no passion at all for this kind of stuff. It may not be true, but that doesn't matter when this is what's presented, right?

Posted by NDN_Shadow

Will play if they fix the animation priority in the previous game. Dying because I'm locked in an animation is not fun....

Posted by Commisar123

Bye firetruck

Posted by WiqidBritt

@FunExplosions: I don't mind that it's an ad, what I mind is that it's 300x louder than the video I want to watch

Posted by smitty86

Brad: "Hey Patrick, they're making a new Shank."

Patrick: "Oh No!!!!!!"

Posted by bybeach

I do not like any of the QL-EX's, including doublefine. I look at them as a necc. evil, but from the very first one I saw and percieved the change of behavior on the part of the staff..never liked them. Especially if they seem partial to the dev.

Posted by Napalm

This makes me want to play the shit out of Shank. I loved Shank.

@WiqidBritt: I'd suggest you either install or try browsers with Ad Block Plus on them. I and others have raised this issue already many times but God forbid they would do anything to improve the user experience for the majority of their members.

Posted by The_Nubster

I don't like this. It doesn't look at all like a graphic novel, it looks like a flash game.
