Who would've guessed the sequel to Red Faction: Guerilla would be a Star Wars game?

That's exactly what I thought when I saw the Rancor walk through a building.

lmao they look so silly during the rancor rampage

This is the best thing Greg Proops has ever been in.

@TheHT: With Pax being right around the corner it is hard to tell if they just were feeling a time crunch of getting this out or waiting for Ryan (which might have pushed this until they got back), hopeful that Ryan goes back into this game on video for missing out on this quick look as he did say he would take some part in it.

You know, a downloadable Rampage for Kinect might actually be fun. Good idea Alexis!

Chewbacca gets blasted in the face...

"O my! They're hurting us!"

lmfao

I'm glad you guys aren't buying the "It's for kids!" thing.  Lightsaber on dude was like 17.  It wasn't a kids game until everyone started laughing at it.

Horrible lighting!

EDIT: Okay, they acknowledged the fact that they are working out the kinks. Guess I shouldn't comment without watching the whole video first lol.

I hate everything

Posted by mobbus

It's not GB without a weekly video of Brad being tortured. Although I prefer the Doom II style of torture to whatever this is. When does the torture clause in his contract expire anyway?

Posted by bigsmoke77

The credits are 22 minutes long according to kotaku.

Oh no

Quality Product? Has Patrick played Once Upon a Monster? It is NOT a quality product. And I'm saying that as a huge Double Fine fanboy. 
 
Once Upon a Monster is THE worst built, worst controlling Kinect game to date (barring a few I haven't played I'm sure). It controls so poorly that my son can't even enjoy it. It was so bad I almost couldn't bring myself to buy Happy Action Theatre. Luckily I did anyways because HAT is as awesome as OAAM is bad. 
 
Granted this does look atrocious - possibly even as bad as Once Upon a Monster.

Some mad interlacing going on in this video.

Yeah the "It's for kids" excuse is stupid. When I was a kid I played Mario, Megaman and such games. Just because you are a kid doesn't mean you can't tell the difference between a good and a bad game. However a kid will play a bad game unless he/she has anything better to play. I played several bad Master System games before I found the good ones which was just luck since there were no reviews of Master System games out there and no one had a MS since everyone had a NES, but once I got my hands on some good games I could tell which were bad.

Posted by Draxyle

It's really frustrating that MS backed down from allowing props to be used. It doesn't make sense. "You are the controller" loses all meaning when you can't even have a remotely tactile experience resembling the character that you're controlling. It sounds like something the marketing department pushed through to keep their message on point, at the expense of actual gaming.

But yea, Star Wars is still dumb, film at eleven.

Posted by Beanburritos

This quick look was 40 minutes and 55 seconds too long.

Posted by SleepyDoughnut

This game looks eh, but I think the bigger issue is that the adult population at large is Star Wars'd out.

Its because they stopped giving a fuck about anyone other than kids. Looking at this game, they're basically rehashing the Original Trilogy under the guise of the Prequel trilogy. It makes me sad as someone who started really getting into Star Wars at the tail end of the great Star Wars games era (Jedi Outcast/Jedi Academy and KOTOR/KOTOR II).
Posted by ImmortalSaiyan

I wish they finished out the Dance Part. As someone who does not care about Star Wars I found it funny in a specific way.

Posted by Seroth

I'm disappointed that they ended the dancing segment so quickly. There was lots of potential for hilarity there. They didn't even comment on the dumbass lyrics. :(

Posted by Melos

@connerthekewlkid: You totally glossed over my point. I'm tired of lazy, monetizing exploits passing for quality material, especially by apathetic remarks like "it's just a kid's game."

Posted by Krakn3Dfx

I was hoping Princess in a Battle would be a play on Message in a Bottle.

No sale.

Posted by Nugget

Brad is possibly the worst Kinect player ever...

Not that i'm surprised lol

Yeah, he's in the Quick Look.

Oh no. Oh no, Greg Proops, why? Couldn't you have left that part of your life behind you?

Don't chastise him. HE IS THE SAVING GRACE OF THE WHOLE GAME. The best part is he'll be able to make fun of star wars more on his podcast. I'll have to send him a question about it.

Posted by Kato

What's wrong with the video quality? They look like they're using Interlaced video output.

Go back to HDMI, please. :( The podrace sequence is unwatcheable.

Edited by paulunga

The dancing is exactly the same as in Dance Central. It's kinda hypocritical to critisize it for that part, regardless of whether shitty pop lyrics have been changed or not.

Edit: After watching the whole video, the game looks completely competent to me. It also looks completely uninteresting to me. Either way, I feel like Trick and Bradley are overreacting a bit.

coming next month star trek kinect: electric boogaloo

Posted by SippyCupNINJA

This game makes me sick.

Posted by MocBucket62
@sirdesmond: HELL YES TO THAT STATEMENT! Though I may try one pod race on the Kinect to see how it is, even if it may suck.
Posted by C0V3RT

This quick look succeed in making me dig out my N64 and copy of Episode I pod racer. In short... huge success.

Posted by Godlyawesomeguy

Lightsaber on?

Posted by Wattsiey

DOWNLOAD JEDI KNIGHT ON STEAM!!!

Edited by Pop

I don't know man I find those songs to be pretty funny, there's something about them.

edit: Oh I just remembered, you guys didn't say lightsaber on like in that presentation!

Posted by LLJK_Jasta

Man, I just want a new podracer game. On PC, too, so I can use two HOTAS throttles. I am absolutely serious. XD

Posted by MasterFramer

This game looks like junk... is anyone else getting extremely annoyed by Patrick's condescending criticisms? Like the attitude "this game is so beneath me..." anyone else?

Posted by takkun169

I had a short conversation with myself while watching this.

"Man, the graphics on this look downright awful."

"Well, it is a Wii game."

"Wait... no its not! Its a Kinect game! Its on the fuckin XBOX!"

disgust

Posted by Cazamalos

if next generation consoles drop the cutting edge technology in favor of more gimmicks

i'm out

Posted by Hoshnasi

I remember Pod Racer on some Nintendo console. meh.

Posted by Chadster

In case you were ever unconvinced that any integrity or respect the Star Wars universe once had has been completely and utterly obliterated, I give you Kinect Star Wars.

Protocol Boiiiiiiiiii!

Posted by Peanut

Anyone else kinda tired of the whole "wet blanket" approach? I either want to be informed, laugh, or watch someone get angry during a QL. I don't want to watch people whine and sigh for half an hour.

Posted by BoOzak

I was wondering why Brad was so pissed off, then he mentioned something about having to review this garbage and it all made sense ;p

I'm surprised their bothering to spend that much time with it. Granted it's been a slow couple of weeks, but personally i'd rather watch them play SH HD or DMC HD. These kinect videos are just too demeaning for me to find it funny.. most of the time..

Posted by xxNBxx

Lets face it Star Wars lost its creditability as soon as Han shot second...

Posted by DougQuaid

With the amount of studios that had their hands in this, how does this game turn out looking so... not good?

Posted by hagridore

TERRIBLE graphics aside, this seems fine for young kids. Which Star Wars becomes increasingly devoted to.
