Lloyd Kauffman makes me happy, "Wasted youth is far better then a wise and productive old age"

Man, Patrick can turn the silliest video game quick look into "serious business review". This was ripe for Jeff and Vinny to lay some humor over it.

If everything done in those FMV's was done on purpose, they are brilliant. It's like a bad straight to youtube movie, love it! The game-play looks like it could be fun in short bursts. Seems like the kind of game you play to take a break in-between other games. Looking forward to getting it on 360.

I like how it says merican for the USA

Jeff sniffs out corniness all the time, but this game gets a pass??

During the FMV scene in the garage, the Wavy TubeMan Chronicles was playing on the TV in the background.

I didn't expect it to, but LocoCycle has made it to my XBO launch day games. The FMV is too fucking good. I love Twisted Pixel.

This looks like a 360 game not a Xbox One. Looks horrible on every level.

Posted by JimmyPancakes

Well that was depressing.

Twisted Pixel will get shut down this generation, I can feel it. I can't imagine their games make Microsoft money.

Posted by RuthLoose

Wait... does this mean Kotaku will have to give this game a 10 because they have a contributing writer, Lisa Foiles, featured?

Hispanics are only good enough to be car mechanics. Hilarious.

As a Mexican dude I find your accusation really stupid.

Everything is racist if you want it to be!

Seriously, folks?

It's such a shame that the game is so poor when it has such great ideas and grand designs. Plus, it's really ugly for what's supposed to be a "next-gen" game.

I cant finish this. Tom Savini is great though.

SO EDGY, U GUYS JUST DON'T GET IT

edit: wow what a piece of shit, genuinely looks like an original Xbox game running at a higher resolution

I bought Comic Jumper on a whim a few years ago and I will never make a purchase mistake like that again. I really don't care for Twisted Pixel games or humor.

Posted by GrantHeaslip

I'm so thoroughly over this kind of affected, "so bad it's good" ironic humour. Even if the gameplay was good, the humour they've tacked onto it is actively unappealing to me. I think Eurogamer nailed it:

What you're getting for your money feels a little like somebody else's office in-joke: you can sense the well-intentioned laughter, but you can't really join in.

This sucks. All three of the new console launches have sucked. :(

Look at the WiiU a year later; releasing hot titles. This is what PS4/XBONE can aspire to. :P

maybe if they're lucky, this game will sell as many copies as Fret Nice

Scottsburg is a real place. Just a bit of a poke north of Louisville.

Wow. That is cosplay I can get behind.

Serioulsy. Career has not quite gone as expected i guess? He was great on SFU, shame to see him doing this now.

Play the game. Play the game. Play the game with Super Mario 3D World only on the Nintendo Wii U this Holiday Season!

"We are only human" at the end was really funny.

See, shit like this makes me wish Sega still made hardware, if only because TP could have added something along these lines to the bootup as tribute to the definitive FMV system.

Seriously. Best system startup ever.

They hit it once, the bit in the beginning about the toaster.

Okay, about the screw.

A few other parts, also.

This really does look like the worst game end of sentence

There's parody and then there's becoming the thing you're making fun of

Yeah. When I started watching and posted the Sega CD boot-screen vid, I was just funnin. By the time I was done, I was reminded of why FMV games are so shit.

At least there'll be a Let's Play on Youtube within the week and we can see the video without putting up with the shitty "game" part.

The guys have a good point about the whole Spanish gag though. I'm morbidly curious as to how they deal with that in the Spanish dub of the game. Do they make Pablo speak English?

I just realized that by giving you an achievement for making a promise they can track who made and didn't make a promise.

Looks fucking awful.

Badly paced scenes that never end and just get boring remind me of Plan 9.

I would love to see a Spanish-speaking bike with an exasperated Italian mechanic being pulled behind.

That... would actually make more sense, since they wouldn't have to give the guy a new name.

Indeed. That's a lazy attempt at humor.

This looks like hot garbage.

FMV reminds me of Megarace somehow, just as bad

Posted by fisk0

I don't get why they didn't go the Mortal Kombat or Tex Murphy route by making the character in-game a digitized sprite of the same actor who played the mechanic during the FMV cutscenes, the polygonal models looked goddamn awful, and while there could be some issues with the physics not looking right when using sprites instead of polygons ... it's not like they did a good job with that anyway.

Didn't it play a selection of different songs each boot too, or was that region/revision specific? I seem to remember another song.

Region/revision specific. If you're North American and don't remember that music, you might remember this instead.
