QUICK LOOK 
No swasticas?
Posted by Trision

The quick looks of this week were all stuffed into today.

Edited by MarkWahlberg

Because the Irish are well known for their spider-like abilities.  
 
But any game that has you light a cigarette every few minutes or so, just like they do in old movies (see For a Few Dollars More) has to be good.

Kickass looking game

Climbing animation is a downer

EX just tells me they don't trust the bomb crew to play the game on their own. EX might as well say "red flag".

Looks alright.
 
Though World War II games are played OUT.

Woot! I still want this ^-^

@ryanwho: We actually played it immediately after we were done recording, but figured we'd take advantage of our guests by having them play and talk about it, all interviewy-style. 
 
@chstupid: We almost mentioned the no swastikas thing, but forgot. The full version of the game will have them in regions where they are allowed. They've been showing this version off because they've been taking it around the world and didn't want to deal with two separate builds.

gerstmanns irish?!?!?!
 
Now that I think about it, that seems right...

Posted by IshimuraD

That definitely got me interested in a game I didn't think of much before.
I just hope they fix up some of the animation stuff; I noticed some jerky, hyper animations, and the when the character models talk, you can really see the distinct points that the animation in the face starts and stops.
A bit of polish and I think it can be great.

Animations look a lil loose and flimsy, but otherwise it looks surprisingly fun. 
And hurrah! european release before US?? O.O

I don't know why don't more developers get rid of the constant over the shoulder camera in action/adventures like inFamous did. This is not a shooter, and I will be spending more time traversing than shooting, so just leave the reticle to one of the shoulder buttons.

Haven't been paying too much attention to this game but after seeing this it definitely looks quite interesting & liking the amount of options that are in the game as well as the black/white/red look of the nazi filled areas until you kick enough nazi butt to free that area.

Blowing up Zeppelins? Dude, bitchin'.

Edited by CashBailey

This game looks quite good. 

Just as long as it isn't complete crap like VELVET ASSASSIN

I suppose gerstman is kind Irish sounding

huh thats wierd, they tottaly censored the swastika

Collected contraband list if anyone wants to go wild with linking Objects. Though essentially it seems to be "named money", rather than modeled items, so maybe not?
coffee, champagne, music box, prophylactic kits, gold watch, banned book, perfume, chocolate bars, carton of cigarettes, cigars

Looks AWESOME.

Posted by Wildfire570

That game looked cooler than I initially thought. I thought it was going to be a hardcore stealth game to me for some odd reason but its good to know that there is still a good amount of stealth in it.

Posted by kollay

A nice take on a milked genre.

Posted by Sticky_Pennies

Looks fantastic. It's a unique WW2 game!

Posted by Doubt

Very assassins creed/GTA

Posted by cheeriokilla

You have to see between the lies... Pandemic has let me down one too many times, the only decent game I played was Battlefront... Then Battlefront 2, Mercenaries 2 and the LOTR ones were a big overhyped fiasco, so no, I'm not taking my risk with this one. 
 
It amazes me that Pandemic at one point merged with Bioware before both being bought by EA. Why would Bioware do such a thing, they have such a high standard

Posted by Ineedaname

Hmm I'm not sure how long that will last, 10 hours of that, I think I'd get bored, I know it's only a demo so I hope there's alot more to it.

Posted by Bald3rdash

That quick look got me really excited for this game that I wrote off long ago.  Thanks guys!

He was joking, I believe. The surname Gerstmann seems to be of either German, Austrian or Hungarian heritage. Though that doesn't stop Jeff from being part Irish, he'd probably has some blood from central Europe.

Im buying it

Ehhh, mediocre.  Animations look way too quick and choppy.  Sean moves about three times as fast as he should.

why no swastikas? I know that it is the symbol that the nazis used, but if you look up what they actually mean, they represent something good. So technically if you say no swastikas then you are censoring a symbol that was meant to be good, rather than what people instantly think when they see one today.

All these QL's are awesome but I miss me some TANG!!

Posted by captain_clayman

those climbing animations look okay, but when he's climbing down, they look backwards 0.o

Posted by JoelTGM

ahh that looks like a good game!

Posted by RadixNegative2

wow this looks really good

Posted by MasterChiefLopez

I thought this game was gonna be a little more original.  Seems to steal ideas from a bunch a games that have recently came out.  Like Assassins Creed, Infamous, and GTA.  I doubt I'll get this now.

Posted by HT101

Nice demo there.  The game looks pretty good.  Definitely keeping my eye on it.

Posted by MordeaniisChaos

Clipping like a MOTHERFUCKER. 
 
Please don't make climbing mechanics if you aren't going to take the time to animate in such a way that the player's knee isn't ENTIRELY IN a wall or something. 
 
Other then a few meh clipping bits, this looks GREAT though. Really looking forward to checkin this out. I particularly like the idea of softening up targets in the open world before the missions.

I know what you mean. I've re-watched all of them in recent weeks. Pity Uwe Boll hasn't desecrated more franchises.
Posted by HatKing

The last trailer I saw of this game had me questioning it a bit, but now I see what it is.  Doesn't look as good as I thought it was going to be back when I first heard of it but it still looks pretty good.
Posted by Nfinit_Vylence

I have to say that this completely deflated any hopes I had for the game.
It's not in any way what it was billed; it's Mercenaries with better filters.

Posted by MeatSim

Looking good, I am suprised a sandbox WW2 game hasn't really been attempted till now.  

Posted by wrecks

Looks like potentially Pandemics best game to date. Then again, Mercs2 looked badass before it was released. Fingers crossed.

Posted by DystopiaX
@Godlyawesomeguy: they're actually illegal to be displayed in some countries, like Germany (for obvious reasons), so it's more than them not wanting to offend, they'd be breaking laws. 
 
Anyway, I have to say this game wasn't on my radar until now, with it's December release i think i'll pick this up for christmas, along with either God of war collection, ODST, or assassin's creed.
Posted by Kinggi

Game looks pretty impressive. If they can pull off the open world stuff well and keep things fun it could be a hit.  Ill probably get it.

Posted by troy333

Great quicklook. Just got Dragon Age Origins, next up AC2, then I'll end with The Saboteur. First day purchase for me. Thanks again for the quicklook.
Posted by MadExponent

I'm actually really interested in the game.  Super amazed.

Posted by Artemis_D
@Godlyawesomeguy:  In this particular game it wouldn't mean anything good.  Also, it's outlawed in Germany, so they CAN'T put the symbol in that build, even if they wanted to.
