why is this Xbox only?  They are only getting half the possible profit they could make if they did it for both...
Microsoft is publishing. It's just business.

Looks fun, can't wait to test out those salute mechanics! Haha

why does the giantbomb staff seem like they would drop to their knees and service double fine if they asked.  this game doesn't look great, and all their other games weren't that great.  i couldn't even really finish watching the quick look i was so bored with it.
It could just be that most other people think that Double Fine's games are really good.

For those who have not seen it...the release date was announced a few days ago... June 22nd.

Double Fine should've made Front Mission Evolved.

I was rolling at he saluting convo. lol

Posted by Kordesh

This needs to be released, purchased, and in my x-box, right now. I was so hoping there would be a release date at the end of that )=.

The regiment update screen at the end of the match says "Challenge Complet".

Can't watch this now because of the Pyramid music, have to go watch the Pyramid QL instead.

I had to laugh every time he did that salute.
 
I hope they don't add more, that is so strange and funny.

I usually dread QLEXs bexcause they're so awkward and business-like with the whole "we can't talk shit about the weird shit in this game because we might offend this dude".
 
But goddamn, that was great. Enjoyed it more than pretty much any QL this year.

@RazielCuts: It does exist here as such slang. 
  
 
Great QLex. The game's shaping to be really cool. Yay, Double Fine! (where can I get some DF dollars, though)
*salute* x100

Oh my jesus christ, this is one of the best quick looks on the site. Brad Muir is my hero.
 
 
Game is looking really awesome. Will definitely be buying it.

Looks pretty awesome, great QL.

@FoxMulder: Well not a single game has been sold on psn in the last 4 weeks go figure, that and PSN sales are way less then xbox live
Posted by kojip

I want to buy this game.  Is 6/22 more or less accurate (as reported by Wikipedia)?   
 
Also... I want to like Patrick because I like his news coverage.  However, he is rapidly getting on my nerves in these quick looks.  He is mildly better than Kessler.  Maybe it's his age or mine but the humor is sophomoric and I just can't take it compared to the ultra dry and crass irony I've come to expect from Ryan, Vinny, and Jeff. 
 
Anywho, I love the new doublefine products and so does anybody know when I can expect this one?

Posted by OneManX

I still dont get the hate for Patrick... what is he exactly saying or doing? because everytime they do something he seems to be able to flow and hold his own with the others, he seems laid back and knowledgeable about video games.

This was a great Quick Look.  Them messing around is what makes quick looks so fun.  They even managed to actually inform me about the game in the process as well.  A good time was had.

Posted by Rekt_Hed

Ok you guys sold me on this :) shut up and take my money!

Posted by Dylabaloo

Best Quick Look in awhile, might have to pick this up; seems like it would be really fun with other players. 

Posted by Soapy86
Best Quick Look in quite some time. The game looks fucking awesome to boot! Also, this wonderful saluting technology needs to make its way into other multiplayer games ASAP!
Posted by l3reak

I'd buy a PC/Steam release of this in an instant. Looks fantastic. Love the art style.

Posted by rmanthorp

I was actually laughing so much!

Fuck! Xbox only. I hate you Double Fine bastards! Take my money assholes.

Posted by BlaineKodos

It took 23 minutes to get to actual gameplay of Trenched, and I don't feel a single second of it was wasted. It says a lot to me when people can enjoy themselves that much before it even actually starts.

Posted by SammyB123

double fine is great at making quirky, highly original games

Posted by Swordfish9

Oh I get it, so this game is like a tower defense game, except with players piloting the mechs.

Posted by TommyH

Man, this is the game i have been looking for... Mech Warrior style customization + Tower Defense + Co-op and it looks super tight to boot? You can count me in!
Also, awesome QL overall!

Posted by Ferros

This will be the first Double Fine downloadable game I'll get. Love the customisation, the combat looks interesting enough and analog saluting will be the gameplay innovation of 2011.

Posted by PenguinDust

Looks pretty good.  I'm interested.  Funny QLEX, too.

Great game coming.

I wish the quicklooks were, you know, a bit quicker.

Because a lot of people really do like Double Fine's games?

  Analog salutes are the thing that sold me on this game.

I agree. Patrick has definitely been holding his own here at GB if you ask me. 
 
and this was a great QL, worth the time. For some reason i love every "failed" interview with Brad Muir. his personality is a breath of fresh air, i feel like most people don't have enjoyable to watch interviews. 
Posted by Jefflarz

I get it now, Trenched is a game about love. Thank you Mr. Muir, you've showed me the light.
 
This was the most quick look of twenty eleven, nice work Ryan, Patwick and of course Brad Muir. I love you all.

One of the best QL EX in a while

-The environments are hideous, it looks like an up-res'd 90s game. 
 
-The robots are a bust. Their animations are so disappointing. Aside from looking like they're missing half their frames, they don't convey any sense of scale or mechanization whatsoever. The models are super bland, interchangeable, and forgettable. Likewise for enemy design.
 
-Gameplay-wise, I played more subtle and challenging TD over twelve years ago, in mods for the original Starcraft. All the customization looks like a red herring. I suspect that it will merely provide the illusion of choice to conceal that the game is just a crappy trial-and-error puzzle. Also, those customization menus are fucked. Undersized, ugly, and they have about 3 layers of redundant nesting.  
 
There is some neat stuff to the world concept. Too late to make a good game out of it, but it could make for an original animated series. Disappointing to reach that verdict on yet another Double Fine game.

@avantegardener: I disagree- take your time and show me everything the game has to offer.  You can stop watching whenever you want.

Dear lord 25 min before they actually start doing something fun. Come on GB get it togeather, we don't wach QLs for menus (or mech designs even).
Really? I do. I love when they mess around in the game. It was hilarious when they were messing around with the salutes.
Posted by Tesla

Double Fine do the best QLEX's.

Edited by Supercancer
@Jumanji: In Double Fine's defense, Brad did state that the game still had some work left, so this may not be the final product. (I might be mistaken about this, though.)
 
Anyway, I think this game looks pretty good. I love the customization options you can make to the trenches, and creating a huge behemoth of a mech looks fun as hell. One thing I hope to see are some levels with just overwhelming amounts of enemies coming at you from all directions, not just a few linear paths that the enemies take.

happy to be able to fast forward... But i didnt! Thats funny as shit! Thx DF. O7

I don't know about you guys, but saluting seems to be where it's at.
 
All games in 2012 will feature saluting.
Posted by Alphazero

Looks awesome. Reminds me a bit of Monday Night Combat, but manlier and salutier.

Love to see you do any better.

Looks awesome, can't wait to see more. Brad Muir is also awesome, just such an nice dude.

This is nuts. Jeff, Ryan, Vinny and Brad don't program games. By your standard they should just shut the whole website down. QUICK! EVERYONE STOP POSTING, NOW, OR TAKLULAS WILL GET DYSPEPTIC!
