Yo!

Edit: Woo! Questing! Finally. Nope, laggy Australian internet. Oh well, next time.

I remember seeing this game several months ago and it looked neat. Disembodied guns: a good way to start a morning.

Oh, and here's an idea: Put this in Deus Ex! and add Geo-Mod! and have Rift support! and have a custom controller that's actually a real gun! See, see that's the twist. That's the true secret of Mind Tech. Real Gun Stuff.

Disembodied gun. Go!

This game needs a PDF.

You might also know Wolfire Games as the guys (guy?) responsible for the Humble Indie Bundle.

Loving these quick looks of the weird games Patrick discovers.

Posted by MrGtD

Patrick and Drew make an oddly fantastic team.

I'm not gonna complain about more content, but as they say at the start of the video this is pretty much scraping the bottom of the barrel. Makes me think it might be time to come up with a new feature to fill these dull times.

I believe you can get this if you Pre-order Overgrowth which is most definitely still in development.

Would be a nice time for a new endurance run, would get me to subscribe again....Just saying.

Slow game news day? Quick Look any(every)thing!

Need more Drew on Quick Looks!

@ICantBeStopped: A bigger problem is that even when it's not a video with Patrick you instead get comments that say "Yay! No Patrick!", so yeah, there seem to be no way of winning this fight (it polutes EVERYTHING) without getting rough with the commenters that just troll and are plain obnoxious witht his crap.

EDIT: Oh and for the sake of actually talking about the game. This look neat and makes me think about all stupid talk about "murder simulators" that media likes to call videogames.

This looks cool.

Wasn't there a HL2 civil war mod with active musket reloading?

I enjoy learning about these experimental games. I'm sure great things will keep coming out of gamejams. I see potential in more intricate systems but the structure around it also needs to be in place. I'll stick with active reload for now.

Edited by guanophobic

Interesting choice, releasing this right after Alex's article about gun violence..

Edited by ExplodeMode

For as simple as a lot of this looks, this game seems really violent to me. I guess it's how methodical the use of the gun is and how quickly you just drop.

It's like it's going out of it's way to show you how unrealistic other shooters are, while all you control is just a floating gun, not even rendering a hand. Weird.

Posted by AssInAss

This has the most unique and intense experience in a shooter when you're running from a bot, doing all the checks for your gun, frantically missing the buttons on your keyboard, and trying to reload just in time to get in a position where you can fire back. And I love manually reloading every single bullet:

There are is no mod community for Receiver it seems. I tried looking in their forums but it only has a mod that fixes some small errors and a multiplayer project in early stages of development. Nothing else though. If anyone knows a place to get mods for it, I'd love to know. The game is neat though but really needs some better enemies, it's no fun to shoot a turret.

You just want this gun in Sub Rosa. We all know you, Zag.

TELL ME ABOUT THE MIND KILL

Edited by Sin4profit

4:30 "no idea which ones have been fired" I can't really tell, but i think it shows the pin strike in the primer to show which bullet has been fired. If not, that would be more realistic.

5:40 ...yeah, it's subtle but when Patrick opens the cylinder you can see one bullet has been spent.

Endurance Run Xenoblade

I applaud Patrick. He's the hardest working guy in the business.

Posted by ZagZagovich

@Rolyatkcinmai: If only. But the only thing I want from this is to shoot fools. Maybe some more guns too, why not.

You should watch the whole QL ;)

There are wonderful hectic moments of action-reloads to be had in this wicked game which is a mega-minimalist Dark Souls with guns. The world of Receiver after you listen to the tapes turns out to be pretty freaking dark, it produces adrenaline better than any single-player game I've played this generation, if you want proper scares in your games this will provide.
 
(How the hell did he survive Solid Snaking past that turret room..)
 
 
 
And this game costs $4.99 and is purchased via humble bundle: http://www.wolfire.com/receiver
 
 
 
 
 
and that HTO putz should go become a victim of guncrime, just look what he caused, of course we'll talk about it we're as tired of it as we're tired of hearing that games kill people. They don't. Dumb motherfuckers are why we kill people.

Twenty-eight days, six hours, 42 minutes, 12 seconds. That is when the world will end.

Kinda ok game not much to say,

Posted by ReaganStein

You guys sure do quick look an awful lot of games the week after they are discussed on idle thumbs...

Posted by Muzhik

Cool to see Drew doing a quick look.

Posted by Superfriend

Huh, this game looks pretty cool! Not sure about the part where they basically charge you for a tech demo, but it does look like it has a lot of potential.

Just don´t show it to the MAN, cause they will ban everything!!

Edited by SirOptimusPrime

Drew + Patrick sounds like a potent combo.

OH This is from the insane people that made Lugaru. It all makes sense again.

Wrong, you can use the clean bullets as ammo too

Erm, no you are wrong. You can absolutely fire the "golden" bullets. They do more damage.

Edit: Sorry, simkas was faster.

Yep, they do more damage and everything

Edited by simkas

Also, I don't think Patrick mentioned this, but if you tap W you can also run and the more times you tap it the faster you run.

I want the guns in Day-Z to handle like this.

If love to see CoD get this and just freak out all the 7 year olds

Posted by HedinnWeis

Overgrowth is still in development...

Posted by dr_mantas

Guys, guys.

The FTB button? It stands for Fade To Black.

Posted by Geurge

Yes! Receiver, love this game, really wish it had more content.

This is definitely a game that Drew would love and it would be amazing to have him play it on an Unprofessional Friday after he's played it a lot and knows the ins and outs of it.

18:15 ah ha! there it is. Leave it to dead eye Drew to crack that case.

So in watching this game it reminds me of what motion controls could achieve. Something like the Razer Hydra would be perfect for this as it takes the hyper reality approach one step further in having to line up your sights.

Jurassic Park: Trespasser tried to do something like that way before it made any sense which made the controls really cumbersome. I think it did a decent job of maintaining tension in a game that also included guns.
