It's always weird hearing the giantbomb guys talk about movies, because you just kinda assume that all geeks are the same. But when you hear a good movie podcast like the /filmcast or the untitled movie cast here, the bombcast guys are just not playing on the same level when it comes to staying up on movies and vice versa.

(the only exception i can think of was Ryan (Always gonna miss that dude))

Quid pro quo: how up are the podcasts you listed on videogames?

@sixpin: I have to disagree with you and agree with Brad because District 9 is fantastic. I went to the theatre having no expectations and was blown away. One of the best original sci-fi films I've ever seen.

Possibly worst game of the year.

it's basically the vice versa. devindra on the /filmcast played the last of us recently. I can't remember the last time before that that a game was mentioned.

Jeff Bridges.

In a video game.

The company that made this calls themselves 'Old School Games' and makes the worst kind of modern game imaginable? I'm actually insulted that they call themselves that. This is garbage.

Never let Vinny play a 30+ minute quick look with super high mouse sensitivity ever again. Because oh my that was getting into headache territory there. Loved the QL but I couldn't physically concentrate at it for very long.

Found a comic book that was basically just a series of two page teasers for other comic books. Except all of them read like crass movie pitches rather than actually plotted stories. On the last pages...Oblivion. More than the sterile soulessness of the trailers, that kept me away from that film.

It sounds like GB got a new video intern. This is what happens when Drew is gone. :(

So X-Men Origins: Wolverine confirmed GOTY?

Also, this game has ghost problems.

How is "Ghost Problems" not a concept on the wiki?

@jeff should use "Do you like dildos?" in his next radio spot. With Saints Row 4 coming out soon it will even be relevant.

I thought at the start, "Hey this is God Mode, isn't it?"

Turns out I was right. More right than I could have anticipated.

EDIT: Seriously, though, if any of you are looking for a third-person horde mode with objectives and haven't played Mass Effect 3's multiplayer, that game is still fantastic. It handles incredibly well, and they've added a wealth of new content for free since release (more than doubled the number of player classes, plus a bunch of new maps and some tougher enemies). I started playing it this year and have put in 160+ hours so far. I highly recommend it.

Jeff Bridges IS in the game, but what about ze multiplayer?

Starting from latest comments, I was already worried there wouldn't be one like this. Thank you.

That aside, dissapointed by this. Was hoping for the usual movie-tie-in garbage, with bad design, bad cut-scenes and actros, who kinda sound like Jeff Bridges and Ryan Renolds.

I don't know which two eyes to shoot you between.

Did @vinny just say he liked Wolverine Origins?

God damn it Vinnyyyyyyyyyy. It's the worst X-Men-related film ever made!

Try First Class instead.

X-Men Origins: Wolverine is dumb as hell. Dammit Vinny!

Posted by Crickut

Dildos.

Edited by fazzle

I guess it makes sense that this game is just a re-skin of another one, since the movie looks like just a re-skin of Men in Black

Posted by Matterless

Brad doesn't understand Wolverine at all.

Crapp.

The beginning of this video is everything that makes GB better than the rest of the net.

Edited by AV_Gamer

The game is just as bad as they claim the movie is.

At some point I just moved this video over to another tab and pretended it was the alternate universe GB movie podcast. That Elysium movie does look like it could be pretty alright! District 9 was pretty fantastic, so I'll give Blomkamp the benefit of the doubt.

And Vinny...sometimes it's okay to not like a game :)

@kkotd said:

Wait, Jeff didn't like the Wolverine Origins game? That was one of the best movie-tie in games ever released... And good movie-tie in games are few and far between.

Okay, good to know that I'm not crazy. I thought that game was pretty awesome as well.

Yeah, it was definitely a rushed game, but the combat was incredibly satisfying, in a way that only Warhammer 40,000: Space Marine could also reach, the Easter Eggs were nothing if not charming and it actually gave the movie a better name because of it. It was one of the few games that were far superior to its movie counter-part and came out nearly at the same time.

I know this is off topic, but would love to see you guys do a quick look of The Last of Us Multi player.

They did that a month ago for Thursday Night Throwdown. Check it out there.

Edited by cthomer5000

vinny may be able to handle the extremely sensitive controls, but I can't. it's like the worst shaky-cam movie ever.

yeah, i personally found this unwatchable. had to stop after about 3 minutes of gameplay. Bummer, i wanted to laugh along with them!

Posted by Vod_Crack

Yeah, this game feels and plays a bit like God Mode but God Mode had heart. It also wasn't just a shitty horde mode, it had actual levels you blasted through. Yeah, bit of a God Mode apologist.

Posted by Battezu

This game is just too boring to watch. I'm sorry.

Posted by Dan_CiTi

Yeah, i feel like they have done what Brad mentioned (reskin or generally appropriate an existing game with a movie license on top of it) plenty of times back in the day, but I could be mistaken.

Why is no one being more specific? 3:54 Is your start point. Enjoy everyone!

The Universal Soldier game was a reskin of Super Turrican, I know that one for sure.

But I've heard a lot of stories going the other way, where Japanese licences games had their licenced properties reskinned out of the game, along with some whitewashing for good measure, and sold in the west as original IPs. This was really, really common in the NES and SMS era.
