Olympic video games always sound like the worst.

Top Hole!

WOW!!! It's Vinny and Ryan - my favorite QL combo! This is fantastic! Olivia, can I change my order?

Posted by leejunfan83

I love this game

Posted by Metal_Mills

Probably shitty game + Ryan + Vinny = Great QL material.

Edited by Village_Guy

I will refuse to buy this game unless I can use the bow and arrow to shoot the Queen, oh, and I want to use Big Ben as target practice.

EDIT: Vinny and Ryan talks about how close the guys are standing and running towards the javelin/discus flying through the air, which if you do watch real athletics they do that there too, seems pretty dangerous in my opinion...

In menus until 4:40ish

Yep. The 2012 Olympic Logo really is terrible. Whoever designed it should never be allowed to design anything again.

Wow don't be such a dick, man. With Ryan and Vinny, even the menus are shit fun.

Memo Jetfic is a traditional German name.

Athens 2004 was the first game I really played a lot (I was 8-9...)

I don't disagree that watching them bumble through menus can be amusing, but some people just want to see the gameplay, and this guys post was informative to those people. Go easy.

Wait people actually watch these for the gameplay?

Wow maybe you're right, man. Either way, those people are probably on the wrong site. I can picture them in my mind - those people who just can't wait through a mere 4 minutes of hilarious commentary, who just want to skip forward to see the groundbreaking state of the art gameplay in London 2012 The Official Video Game - by Sega. Taking button mashing and quick time events to a while new level. Ha ! Ha !

If this is anything like Beijing 2008 I'm in for a summer of holes burned into my palms.

Reaction shooting in skeet is always a bad idea.

EDIT: ahaha in the high jump, "What happened what happened?" You pointed the stick straight up three times in a row that's what happened!

Posted by Hockeymask27

I've always liked the Olympic games. Love the shit out of nago 98 as a kid.

Posted by King9999

Track & Field for the NES is a classic.

No patrick = watch the whoooooole thing

Thomas Bense? It's more likely that he's playing this game than participating in the olympics.

I appreciate Ryan and Vinny sport QL's. Not as funny as 'Push the Limit' for example but that was Kinect.

I am impressed by this game though, presentation seems really good. I usually hate it but I almost wish Jeff was there to make fun of those British accents, because I even thought they were annoying/funny myself.

@Grissefar: Those are probably the same people that complained about drink taste tests and DSi Ware releases.

Posted by JoeyRavn

That announcer is incredibly annoying. Not that I would ever buy this game, but it sucks for those who are sincerely interested by it.

Posted by jedge

They totally nailed imitation Coldplay in this game's menu music. Incredible.

Wow. Dick. His dad just died.

Posted by Winsord

This looks fine; I remember having a little fun playing Torino with a couple of friends when it came out. Glad that it's so easy to check up on how to actually do the events.

At least he is a consistent dick

@leejunfan83: I just don't get the hate for the crew. I think they're all great. I guess it's just Gabe's Greater Internet Dickwad Theory in action, because even if someone annoyed me, I wouldn't go out and profess my hate in comments.

Posted by the_fart_wizard

Where's the poetry? Where's the town planning? They've got some real balls calling this an Olympics video game!

@theimmortalbum: I'm no saint but some of the vitriol can be excessive and unwarranted

Posted by Mijati

This game isn't very realistic at all. I mean, look at that weather! The developers obviously didn't come to London to do any research on this game, absolutely shocking. And this is why video games aren't taken seriously...

Posted by Tan

Wait, it's not a kinect game?

Posted by Blind_Evil

This actually looks pretty fun. I don't suppose they have a basketball section?
