EDIT - World Tree Vinny, but spectacular call.

Why is Brad in every video, I get that they don't have a lot of staff but every quicklook has been Jeff and Brad so far.... with Vinny sometimes.

@thelegendofmart: umm...well, there aren't a whole lot of other options. Who else are you expecting in Quick Looks?

Probably because Jeff and Brad are the only editors left in the office? Vinny and Brad are video guys, Alexis is an Engineer, and Patrick and Alex are on the East Coast.

Seems neat but seems like it needs more... something... I dunno. Maybe twice the amount of stages or something.

How is 12 bucks too much for a super fun game?

@brad: If you parry an opponents lunge enough times they drop their sword. It feels like it's if you move your sword to the height they are attacking after they have started their lunge, but it's too quick to tell really. You can't drop your sword if you don't lunge, I know that much.

Wow, Nidhogg seems really awesome. Too bad nobody's playing it?

PS: It's $12 on the Humble Store right now. Still a little pricey, though. :/

What an awesome game for a quick look!

I wish I had more opportunities to play this locally since that seems to be where Nidhogg shines. At least they included online play. I'm looking at you, Samurai Gunn!

@thelegendofmart: Drew is on the video production team. Rorie is community support. This isn't Gamespot. Jeff and Brad are the only editors left at the office. This isn't the good old days when there was a herd of interns.

This game was done during a mystery video game tournament for the grand finals of Northwest Majors in 2012, and it was pretty entertaining!

All that Persona 4 paid off.

Glad to see Brad doesn't fail to be a pissy baby, complaining about how the mechanics are failing him rather than him sucking but whatever.

This game looks like it might supply the two or three people I play local video games with/against half an hour of fun each. Having said that, I would like to buy it for two dollars and fifty cents. Fifteen dollars, however? Nope.

Such a fun QL. The game looks great, easily worth the asking price for me if I had People to play this with on local multiplayer.

I would totally play this game online with friends. Local is fun for a reason, but it's not the end all be all. The price is the hardest sell. Looks like a lot of fun, though. I'll have to badger some buddies to get it when it goes on sale.

Vinny's style did sort of annoy me at first, but then I realized that it's sort of the point. On offense your goal is to get to the end, and on defense your goal is to stop that person from doing so. If you've got the arrow, fighting is only a means to an end if you have to do it.
