Cool! This seems interesting.

edit: YES! :D

Here you go: FIRST! :)

Posted by Harkat

I was going to say "SECOND!" but since the first comment was not "FIRST!", I would feel like a dick.

Instead, I'll say that this game looks pretty cool.

Edited by PandaShake

Somehow reminds me of that old game where you possess house furniture to scary people

edit: oh, THIRD!

Posted by GREENragdoll

FOURTH!

The controls look a little imprecise and unresponsive, but I like the concept.

Posted by murisan

Seems really neat. If the price point is good I'll nab it.

Posted by mufflonn123

nice game, a buy for sure

Posted by onan

I really, REALLY hope there isn't an achievement for not killing anyone in the game. I want to blow dudes up, dammit.

Posted by sixpin

This looks pretty good. I'll pick it up during the House Party event.

Posted by Baal_Sagoth

Hehe, awesome how the first kill comes out of fucking nowhere. Seems like a promising game. I like the style, especially our little hero.

given that they're a small company, I doubt he's actually a PR guy...

Posted by Askherserenity

@bobeth: He's not PR but I agree with you completely. What the hell was up with him? He didn't even start off by explaining the game that well. I guess we all can't be a Brad Muir but come on....

Posted by Drazat

Not keen on quick looks were pr guys are there as I feel the giant bomb guys can't talk freely about the game.

Edited by Mahonay

The game looks pretty fun. The guy playing didn't seem that interested in showing many of the features. Also he didn't quite know how to respond to Ryan's frankness/sincerity. He seemed nervous the whole time. It's their first game though, I suppose we should give them a break if they don't quite know how to handle these things.

You kids who respond so positively to 'EX Quick Looks' are only encouraging this garbage.

I know most of you are moron automatons who respond positively to GIANTBOMB ANYTHING OMG SO COOL but that's a different argument.

Giant Bomb, stop posting these bullshit commercials. EX is one of the few things that can ruin your media: this is not what you're good at and this is not why people love you.

IF it's a choice between a EX Quicklook or no quick look at all I'd rather see anything. Not all of us are here to wage a holy war. I'm here to take in some gaming media that GB can be sorta sparse on at times. I saw the game, it has my attention. Rather than automatons, we could make do with less idiot internet warriors raging about the most insignificant issues.

I have to admit that it was a little rough watching this directly after the iron brigade QL: EX. From the chemistry of Brad Muir and GB together to the ackwardness of this.

Posted by Askherserenity

@iodizedjoe: How is this garbage? Have you seen the Iron Brigade quick-look EX? GREAT TIMES. GREAT GAME.

Posted by PhilipDuck

Looks sweet not out till March though i believe which is ME3 months so...

And yeah i felt the awkwardness also, should have watched these in reverse order lol.

I will concede that there is something on this page that can ruin this site. I just don't think it's the QL EX.

Heaven forbid Giant Bomb occasionally give a studio the chance to demonstrate their game and answer questions about it.

I thought it was great. And EX Quicklooks are what legitimize this site beyond all the random review and "record myself playing games" yahoos on youtube. I don't know about everyone else but I enjoyed this quicklook quite a bit because of the actual gameplay I wouldn't have seen otherwise.

And for the people blasting this and praising the other QLEX with Brad Muir on the Trenched DLC, the first 20 minutes or so of that were freaking torture, just watching patrick run around a flight deck doing nothing. This was way better. I don't have any interest in Trenched or the DLC after that Quicklook, while I'm very interested in Warp after this one.

He's definitely new at this, and definitely not prepared for the Giant Bomb style of "let's show off your game and also shoot the shit and fuck around"

Dude's clearly a developer getting used to the PR cycle of talking to people he does know.

Posted by ReddenBlack

This game looks pretty cool, actually. I would like to see more animations for exploding dudes from inside them, but it's an interesting idea for a weapon mechanic.

Edited by I_smell

Weird that I just watched the Iron Brigade Quick Look n they were super excited, but some pretty insane stuff is happening in this and nobody seems to be really notice. This like a Monday morning Quick Look or what?
 
 I think the bouncy squaky dude on a murder rampage is pretty exciting anyway.

Posted by meaninoflife42

Left handed salute DLC forthcoming.

Posted by buckybit

cooldown Duders - don't like it? stop watching.

I like the game mechanics. It looks fresh & interesting.

If you follow game industry for many years, you'd appreciate exactly this kind of game presentation: at the GB-offices, without PR handlers, without the E3-style talking point pitch-sale voice - explained by people who actually make these games.

@iodizedjoe: Get your priorities straight man. Stop being angry at something that doesn't mean anything in the end. Control yourself.

Fuck off ya damn hippie. Giant Bomb isn't just about Giant Bomb. Don't like it? Then go to Giant Bomb where I can talk mess at you some more.

Posted by mortal_sb

game seems neat and the dude will get the hang of doing game demonstrations. and yeah, he definitely wasn't expecting a laid back atmosphere like this.

I'm going to express my opinion of your complaint by responding with this: YOUR FACE IS GARBAGE.
Posted by Osaladin

You guys over analyze too much, just sit back and enjoy.

The game looks pretty good by the way.

Posted by DeF

what's going on in the comments here!?

almost makes me not wanna post at all ...

regardless of what some of you duders are arguing about, I didn't think this particular QL EX was very effective at showing off the game. the person playing just ran through it, making everything appear very easy and the puzzles simplistic (especially since some of that was supposedly "later in the game").

having Brad or Ryan play this with the dev guy answering questions would probably have been better in the end, especially in regards to showing off the puzzles.

as it stands now, the game does not look very exciting to me. they should do a proper QL once it's out.

Posted by tactis

This game looks cool, $10 seems like a good price for it, I will wait for the review to see if it has enough content. Oh and I dont know what people's problems are with Quick Look EXs, they are usually great, keep doing them!

Posted by Askherserenity

No one has a problem with the EX Quicklooks except that guy that hates life. Most people are just commenting how the developer should have done a better job at showing off this neat game. It's probably his first time and he just has to get the hang of it some.

Posted by Tireyo

This looks disgusting. I'm not appealed or impressed.

Posted by kpaadet

@onan: Thank you, finally someone I can agree with, the Iron Brigade QLEX was awful and not funny at all. This while the developer sounded nervous atleast showed alot of gameplay in a short amount of time.

Actually, I've noticed that just about every time they do a Quick Look EX, the Bomb Squad do the usual media thing of being pure positive about the game they're being shown because they don't want to be rude. I come to these videos mostly because they're funny, yes, but I'm more interested in seeing the Squad's take on a game than I am in just seeing gameplay or how the game works. After all, I come to Giant Bomb because for the most part I agree with their opinions, so when they feel like they can't share those opinions, I don't really see the point.

Hmm, what's that around 6:20? Gettin a little touchy bout our traversaly, eh?

Shame I have to wait til March to play this.

I don't even have to read the comments to know that people will make a bigger deal out of the "tone" in this quick look than it really is.

Posted by nyv

Since it is a small company and they have just ended the development he must have had spent his last month or so in crunch time, sleeping 3 hours a day all week long. Thus your tiredness and not so great PResness. The game looks fine and original in a way.

Posted by JBrighty

too short damn it ! i wanted to see more after that

Posted by Tsuchikage

The developer seemed pretty upset when Ryan brought up the fact that all the levels are about getting from point A to point B, which wasn't even a criticism. Lighten up a bit!

Warp seems decent. I don't think it's going to be a great game, but there's nothing wrong with it, either.

This guy's great. What the hell are you people talking about?

Did it ever cross your mind that perhaps people respond positively to it because they like it? Maybe it helps if you stop thinking about QLEXes as quick looks and more like guided preview coverage, because that's usually what they are. It's a chance to get an early look at a game before it's available to anyone else, and in the event that a quick video isn't enough to convey what it's about, it's also a chance to have the game explained in more detail than would normally be possible. It's informative. Usually much more so than a normal quick look. So quit yer yapping - we want these things to keep happening.

Looks like poop.

Posted by iodizedjoe

Two things:

1. EX Quick Looks are not Giant Bomb Quick Looks. Deusoma's post nailed it:

"Actually, I've noticed that just about every time they do a Quick Look EX, the Bomb Squad do the usual media thing of being pure positive about the game they're being shown because they don't want to be rude. I come to these videos mostly because they're funny, yes, but I'm more interested in seeing the Squad's take on a game than I am in just seeing gameplay or how the game works. After all, I come to Giant Bomb because for the most part I agree with their opinions, so when they feel like they can't share those opinions, I don't really see the point."

1a. EX is commercialism. Goes without saying that's what we come here to avoid. From a site built on conversation, fun, honesty, from a site that would not even fucking exist if Jeff couldn't admit hey Kane and Lynch is shit, these waves of EX make no sense.

2. If the comment sections of EX's aren't criticizing either the game or the EX itself -- not criticism as in negative, as in intelligently discussing the actual game or this kind of presentation of it -- you have failed.
