"I didn't think they had pool in Europe"

Let's add this to the Dan Ryckert wiki page of quotes

A Jeff & Dan Quick Look? Don't mind if I do.

Dan would die of shock if he went in a British pub and noticed they almost ALL have pool tables in them.

losing by scratching on the 8-ball actually isn't in the rules unless you sink the 8 like jeff did

Pool Nation is my personal choice for pool simulation video games. This looks pretty similar though.

As if Dan needed an excuse to throw in wrestling references XD the game did all the hard work for him.

Like the Mario Party Party video, the video is going weirdly out of sync on HTML5 settings, and there's weird smearing every now and again.

I don't get any of that.

edit: Scratch that, I saw the smearing once. Not the sync issue though.

I know they said it a lot in the quick look but...that camera man. Might buy this thing right now if I could get some kind of tilt view to see what the hell is going on after the shot.

Got the smear a few times but wasn't paying enough attention to notice sync issues. I totally believe it though.

I don't know how they don't understand that the double o sound is "OO" and not "uh". It's insane.

It's time for another episode of "In what way is Dan Ryckert grossly ignorant of the world outside of America!"

Also!

Today's episode features guest star Jeff "snucker" Gerstmann.

They're pronouncing it like it rhymes with Booker or cooker or looker, which seems like a reasonable assumption to me. It's hardly insane, even if it's not proper.

Yeah I got that going on as well, oddly refreshing seems to make it go back in sync

It's the standard American / Canadian pronunciation.

BTW, how many people pronounce "book" or "look" with an "oo" sound? Now that's insane.

It was a design decision not to include a top-down view, they were really going for the 'realistic' approach:

"Since our new pool game is very much focused on the “Pure” part of the title, we’ve gotten rid of the artificial features and mechanics such as a power bar and top-down views to create a more authentic game for both beginners and masters alike."

The idea of 9 ball is that you are good at pool. Therefore you run the table and any mistake could give up the whole game. That's why pros play almost exclusively 9 ball. It's the best game.

I like how Dan loves all activities when they involve beer.

I also like how Dan knows nothing of Europe and calls everything British when he doesn't understand certain words.

A true American if there ever was one!

@aegon: People from certain areas of England do.
English is so variable in how words are pronounced that there's really not any reason to expect any particular collection of letters to be standard.

Snookering is just a fancy term for blocking someone else's straight line shot.

Wait...This looks EXACTLY like Pool Nation...Like...Waaaay too much like it.

Except with better physics, fuck Pool Nation and it's tables. Like playing on velcro.

Snooker isn't what european people play, snooker is what people who get bored with pool play. I was semi decent at pool back in the day. Not good, but I could keep up with friends and had a decent grasp on the game..
Then I tried snooker.. If you like pool and have the chance, give it a go, you'll feel like the biggest noob ever. It's like playing pool on a table that seems 4x the size, and your cue is thin as a tooth pick, and the balls are smaller........

If you're not great at it, snooker is horrible. Most europeans play pool. In norway there was actually a lot of people playing Carambole or whatever the hell the no-holes pool is called. That's actually really fun, and the rules are easy. It's all just snookering and fucking your oponent over.

I used to play pool 3-5 times a week a decade ago.

This may me and some friends decided to play again, I'd not played in 8 years or so. Only table available was the snooker table, so we had a go. Pretty sure it took almost 2 hours to clear the table once. It was pretty embarrassing.
