I hate how Dan never takes the time to research basic information about a game like what it costs. I understand it's a quick look, but that doesn't stop any other members of the team.

I've heard Vinny say "I think it's like... I have no idea what it costs" more times than I can remember.

@shiny_llama: Prepare to be continually surprised by Dan Ryckert. The things he doesn't know are only outshone in incredibleness by the the things it turns out he actually does know.

@brianp: Haha yup. I knew he'd fit right in.

AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA

wow

Now THAT'S how you do a Quick Look. Short, concise, funny, and exciting to watch. This game looks like Japanese ice cream. Eat it too fast and your brain hurts but eat it slowly and you can enjoy all of it's sweetness for a lot longer. Thanks for the video.

That takes some mad skillz.

Sometimes I wonder if Dan has actually reached puberty yet with those weird noises he makes lol

The entire staff rarely does that anymore.

They never did. Always clueless on price. Though I think Jason has been chiming in with the price when the question comes up now and then.

You'd think by now they would make sure to check on how much it costs, what platforms it's going to be on and the release date. There's been times where they knew none of that except the platform they were playing it on for the QL.

This game looks great. Would love to see some speedruns of this.

"I don't want to be tricked by a butt again." - Dan Ryckert

God damnit this QL is pure gold.

Posted by Seeric

I definitely agree with the Jumping Flash comparison since it was the first thing which came to my mind even before it was mentioned in the video. Aside from being similar types of games, they are both very colorful and weird in an entirely nonsensical way; Katamari Damacy tends to have some pretty weird stuff at the end of each game, but the actual objects and living things you encounter along the way are (for the most part) appropriate for the areas they are found in, but are placed in odd situations.

The Dan & Drew pairing is amazing.

Posted by ShaggE

I was half expecting this game to pull an Eversion and suddenly go all dark and violent.

Bought the game based on this QL. Made it maybe halfway through world 2 and this is what every stage feels like. Super crazy, but also very possible and super satisfying.

This game looks rad.

What are you talking about.

Every other member are constantly asking what the cost of the game is.

I'm surprised that you've never noticed this before.

Not being sure what a game costs when for what has been an unintentional running gag/proud Giant Bomb tradition for years.

I would even go as far to say that going into a Quick Look completely dry with no basic information whatsoever is a proud tradition as well.

"I'm gonna be happy for the rest of the day because of this game."

Dan is great, no one else on staff with the possible exception of maybe Drew or Vinny would say something like that.

Edited by xite

A game where you shoot idiots and butts? Probably Dan's GOTY.

This music is created by Jeff's dog.

well this sure looks and sounds very umm... japanese... I guess...

Edited by Moth_Pope

Dan brings such great energy to QL's, this is another great one! His reactions to things are brilliant and so different to the other staff. Also with this and Ghostship Aftermath, Dan and Drew take down butts like pro's now. God help the next ones.

Posted by SpaceRunaway

Wait is this not a Keita Takahashi game? This looks amazing and I need it.

@razatron I was going to ask what site you've been on, but I guess everyone else has done that already.

Posted by InsiderGamer

I have to ask. At the 2:38 mark of this video, when Jason remarks they're looking into the price of the game, Drew re-iterates "Ken's working on it" with a certain intonation.

Do I detect an Apollo 13 film reference when Jim Lovell (Tom Hank's character) reassures his crew that Ken Mattingly is working on their re-entry plan back to Earth?

I bet you it is. Drew used the same tone and everything. I would love some reassurance though.

I like when the people playing the game commentate about in game audio and I can't hear it because the video's mix is terrible.

But you can hear the game audio just fine.

Actually, I've noticed the game audio level in most quick looks has been difficult to hear as of the past couple of months. Even on this one. I definitely dont think it should compete with commentary, but it is not as loud as I'd like... but then again, thas just me. Maybe I'm wrong.

From a UK'er, a purse is a womans wallet, usually larger and pops open with a larger compartment for throwing things inside, might also contain lipstick etc. A purse goes in the handbag which is much larger and may sometimes have a shoulder strap.

A manbag is a handbag for men.

@antihippy: It's about 15-20$ ..... i think? - Every Indie game reviewed.

Finally, this is the Doom sequel I've been waiting for.

THIS MUSIC IS DOPE!

Posted by Thoseposers

Not really feeling the shooting mechanic and this seems far less charming than a katamari or noby noby game but Dan's enthusiasm is fun.

I agree, the audio mix seems weird like i'm not hearing the same music they are, i wasn't hearing the barking or meowing

Edited by Dezinus

It's like the Cloud-to-Butt extension became sentient and made a video game.

Posted by CornBREDX

This is the best game ever made... This is the hardest game ever made...

Dan, you so silly.

I have always found the voices to be mixed too loud in the video content here, and it does seem like it may be getting worse.

I have to run everything through a dynamic range compressor to make out any game audio at all, and not have people shouting in my ears.

Hollllyyyy shit. That looks insane. It's like a speedrunner's wet dream haha.

Koyaanisqatsi, butts, carrots, best QL. Bought the game right after I finished the video :D

Thooooough, no way to rebind jump to mouse 2, how will I survive??? :----(

Posted by LarryDavis

@drewbert Still a lot of compression artifacting on the video... There isn't any on the GBEAST stuff that's going up so I have to assume it's on the West Side end. Please fix in time for next Mario Party Party, thanks.

Posted by beatnik11

6 bucks seems to be a hell of a deal for this game. The art style looks fantastic and it also looks frustrating but fair.

Posted by tildebees

dan calling this the koyaanisqatsi of video games made my day

Posted by Threeblades

味方 = "friend", "ally" or something like "I'm on your side".

敗れた = "I was defeated."

受け流し = "parry".

Posted by BettyFrancis

Oh my god, Dan referencing Koyaanasqatsi and Phillip Glass is the greatest thing. Dan's got a few surprises up his sleeve; a connoisseur of the banal, of the beautiful, everything in between. <3
