Dan not knowing Africa was an important warzone in WWII was priceless. Because the Americans wasn't in that part of the war, so who gives a fuck, right? :P

Great first QL from Dan, very entertaining.

That's some pretty serious motion blur when you turn.

I never understood motion blur.

Hates Splinter Cell, but loves Conviction. You'll fit right in with the Giant Bomb crew. Or at least Jeff. Welcome aboard, Dan!

EDIT: Dynamite bit was gold.

@danryckert Popped his cherry!

Coming in hot and heavy with a Riki-Oh reference too. Not bad.

"WWII? IN AFRICA!?"

You have the patience of an angel, @drewbert. Surrounded by these philistines.

Jeff's playing during that multiplayer match was so goddamn terrible.

Edited by JayCee

The future is now.

Also, dynamite drop in there from Drew. Gotta keep dem boys in line, Drewbert.

Yeah, I think hiring Dan was the right call! He fills the Vinny and Ryan void of being a guy with really lewd humor that Jeff can joke around with, so this might very well be the new best quick look pair. :)

Perhaps the balance has been restored.

"Dan and Jeff"....

Just let that sink in.....

DAN AND JEFF

I can't stop laughing at that thumbnail and tagline.

Great first QL for Dan, he's gonna fit right in!

Posted by Fluttercry

@civid: B-but America was in that part of the war. They fought in Tunisia and Algeria

Great Quick Look but fuck me, so much rage so close together. Hating Splinter Cell but liking Conviction, calling Dark Messiah a bad game, not knowing WW2 was also fought in Africa and even calling this games excellent predecessor a bad game. You're lucky I love you guys so much.

Jeff hasn't seen The Story of Ricky? Jesus, he needs to get on that!

Posted by CaLe

Dan is such a natural fit. Really funny as well! Lots to look forward to.

Posted by Anupsis

Wow Dan is awesome! This was hilarious!

Edited by Leadcat

Yay Dan Quick Look!

Also Drew's 'oh my god' was pretty much my reaction too.

Hey New Duder!

Posted by Borp

Really funny Quick Look. Looking forward to the future of Giant Bomb!

Posted by Karkarov

Yes Dan there was some Africa action in WW2 ;p. Not a bad first quick look, fit right in if you ask me. Game itself looks lack luster though.

Posted by Residentrevil2

Awesome! Great video guys! And, welcome aboard Dan!

Dan is such an awesome addition. :D

Oh man, my mind still can't believe Dan is at Giant Bomb. This is fantastic! Can't wait for what Dan and Jason do for the dynamic at GB!

Posted by Anobix

WWII had parts in Africa?

/sigh

Posted by DoomHK

Drew's "Oh my god..." perfectly summarised my thoughts on the whole Africa in WW2 thing.

Posted by VierasTalo

I love Drew's "oh my god" at the Africa-moment.

Posted by TournamentOfHate

Dan, you're supposed to thank Jeff at the end after he thanks you, as is tradition.

Posted by Fredddi43

Old' Cigs66 has joined a party! Good for him!

He doesn't like Splinter Cell either? Balls. I was hoping for some different interest in certain games. Still possible of course, just not a great start.

Posted by ZedsDeadBaby

Dan is the energy this site really needed. I'm so excited about him being here.

Posted by Mechanized

Great QL. Welcome to the family Dan. Also you should totally convince Jeff to watch Riki-Oh.

Edited by CrimsonJester

So Dan and Jeff are pretty much the same person when it comes to games likes and dislikes it seems.

Posted by probablytuna

So excited!

Posted by ArtisanBreads

Ryckert and Jeff worked really well! Funny QL.

Same.

Posted by bloodsoul5

fantastic quick look.

Posted by Echozs

Great quicklook! Dan is a great fit as expected, can't wait for more content.

Edited by C0V3RT

Did Dan call them "nards?" Thanks for the call back to Elementary School!

Posted by Luxus

Great to have you here Dan!

Posted by sccdemir

Dark Messiah was not a bad game. You take that back sir.

Posted by reelife

@reelife: I was a film major and have never seen that movie.

I was a film minor and we HAD to see that movie ;p but again I'm from Sweden not USA so we probably had to see it because Ingrid Bergman was in that film.

Posted by Gantrathor

This seems extremely similar to V2. Nothing wrong with that. I like that game. And it looks like I'll like this.

Edited by Mister_Snig

Woop woop first Dan quick look! He'll do great here!

Edited by cabrit_sans_cor

Dunno if Dan is reading this, but yo Dan - you like Story of Ricky, you're A-OK in my book.

Posted by ConstantineL

RIKI-OH! I like this guy's style.

Posted by Fattony12000

This gone be good.

Posted by Slay3r1583

I'm not familiar with this Ryckert fella outside of the wrestling podcast but I think he is going to work out just fine. Also I forgot just how horrible @jeff is a accents. He should never do them or maybe he should do them all the time. I'm not sure which.

Edited by Max_Cherry

How do you not know about Africa! You don't even need to go to school for that. Just listen to your grandparents' war stories. Seriously!

Posted by Rasmoss

Rommel? The Desert Rats? Tobruk? El-Alamein? Patton?

Otherwise, great quicklook. Wonderful with some new blood.
