Awesome

@The_Moorasaurus: If the beta/trial is any indication: yes.

Always be full motion cut-scenes! Oh, Twisted Pixel.

Mildly sexist, but in good spirit.

So yeah, I'm sold.

Is there a list of how MANY times Brad dies in a QL rather than how soon?

Posted by Aishan
@lead_farmer: If there's not, there should be. 
 
On a related note, I would pay 15 (fifteen) brad bucks to see him play through 'Splosion Man on Hardcore.

Kelly LeBrock was the chick in Weird Science. Awesome movie, awesome reference.

'Splosion Man was my favorite game in 2009, so I can't wait for this game, it's going to be awesome! Also, 55 minutes, daaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaamn.

Dammit Brad, use the fat woman to propel the bomb!

Posted by bybeach

RIGHT ON BRAD!...at 7:00 in. And no lady gaga,no fucking lady gagag...oh thank god! Ms. esplosionman is born her own way

Posted by Wiseblood

Twisted Pixel sure loves them some Total Recall.

Weird Science is 8 years older than me and even I could have named Kelly LeBrock

Posted by jozzy

First one was too hard/frustrating for me to really enjoy it, seems like this one has the same problem times two (at least).

Unreal ain't got nothin on Beard!

I don't know that she's as charming as the original 'Splosion Man, but the game certainly looks better.

Posted by Meyers09

ha brad's ghost data

At 800 points everyone should pick this up day one, at least please try the demo. 'Splosion Man was like the best game on XBLA, from playing the beta this should also be at least well worth 800 points.

I love the original. Still need to finish the last world on multiplayer, but the single player experience was amazing (sans hardcore mode... ouch).

Also, this looks great. I think Brad has some serious Quick Look anxiety. I'm sure he's quite good at games, but I think he psyches himself out on QLs.

Posted by Hockeymask27

I kind of don't like the hard puzzle stops. I prefer the always be sploding of the first world and most of the first game. Still looks awesome however.

Posted by metalsnakezero

I'm sorry but you guys are not good with puzzles. Still it is a nice game.

Not sold. Twisted Pixel are slowy losing me... That dig at Capcom in the game is just fucking stupid. Two wrongs don't make a right eh?

@bybeach: There was Lady Gaga all over the place in that video.

Posted by ImmortalSaiyan

I like the over the top women-ly-ness of the game. I found the first game lacked personality.

Posted by RecallBerserk

Brad is soooooooooooooo fucking terrible at games. He makes barriers that aren't there. He always finds problems based soley on him being confused by the simpliest of game mechanics.

Oh wow, I want that soundtrack.

Posted by Aishan

There is one design decision here that is bothering me with the multiplayer. 
 
In the original, the multiplayer levels often had switches that had to be hit simultaneously by everyone in the game in order to proceed to the next checkpoint; they ensured that the players pulled off the jumps well enough so everyone got through the room in one piece. From this video, and my experience in the beta, they seem to have done away entirely with that aspect. 
 
It's a shame, because I really thought it added to the co-operative nature of the game -- you had to make sure your partner survived and not just yourself.

Well, since they established a precedent by making the soundtrack for the first game available for free on their website, you'll probably get your wish... ;)

Brad doing some Brad.

Hahaha, so cool. :D

Twisted Pixel dropped the ball on the fat lady song. Otherwise this game looks exactly how I expected it too. BUCK WILD.

And Comic Jumper is arguably the worst game to be released on a console ever. That was also the last time those developers will see my money, Never again. Seriously bad :(

Posted by darkjester74

Yessss!  Day 1 purchase for me!  =D

Posted by Oginam

Loved the first one, so buying this is an easy choice. Looks great.

Posted by Suedehead

Nothing like seeing Brad pulling a Brad for 55 minutes.

Posted by ArcadiaExeter

55 mins is not quick.....but it is awesome.

Posted by Zaccheus

Fucking fuck this is not on fucking PSN. Fuck.

Posted by rethla

"I got through this the first time" And brads ghost is still struggling on the first puzzle as he says that :D

Posted by sirdesmond

Game looks both hilarious and awesome, just like the first one. Planning on buying this on day one.

Posted by Soffish

Brad Shoemaker: kicks ass at highly complex and competitive RTS, but can't figure out basic platforming puzzles.

Posted by Xpgamer7

Powered by Beard. Both genius and surprisingly good looking.

I cannot believe you would even suggest comic jumper as the worst game on a console ever?? That is totally crazy, I am guessing you haven't played very many bad games. Comic Jumper wasn't even that bad I personally found it pretty mediocre but the boss fights were fun and though the gameplay was hard there was definitely a lot of skill to it, the main problem is that it didn't really work in a fun way until you leveled all your stats up funny. There was a lot of cool extras and even though the humour was hit and miss it was mostly hit.  
 
It's fair enough to not like Comic Jumper and straight up call it a bad game, that's your opinion... but worst game released on a console ever is ridiculous. If you don't want to buy this that is your choice but if you are a fan of the original 'Splosion Man I feel you will be cheating yourself out of a fun experience at the expense of your anger of a completely different $15 dollar title from an indie developer trying to do something a little different.

Well, after beating it I felt ripped off and I had also kinda felt deceived by the developers. I bought Splosion Man as well, btw (I thought it was okay). Am I going to buy a sequel on the premise of a joke title/character? Not really. Am I going to buy a game on the premise that their last game was the worst thing I have ever played? Nope.  
 
What I find most sad is that I've heard some folks say "it's ok, Comic Jumper is meant to be bad" like it's cool to rip people off because they're being ironic and self-aware and stuff. That's certainly not the impression I was given. It's like they were trying to make a good game with good gameplay, realised it wasn't so great but also didn't know what to do to make it better so altered it to be self-aware of it's own steaming pile of poopy-ness. Here's a tip: THAT'S NOT A GOOD SIGN.
