C-C-C-C-COMBO BREAKER

Is this some sort of Cookie Clicker sequel?

ULTRAAAA, COOOOMMMM-

Wait, what the hell is this?

I need an adult.

Are you going for a swim?

I was already disliking what I was seeing, specially because the main character is called struggles, and that is stupid, but then the word "noobtastic" came on the screen and that sealed the deal on me never touching this thing.

I also talk to fanny packs all the time, in fact I'd plant my face into my fanny pack when I'm talking to it.

Always put your passport and some money in your fanny pack

Giant Beast repping hard for Combos.

Posted by Kevino13

I looooooove the pretzel and cheese Combos. But they're so hard to find where I'm at. Walmart doesn't have them (unless they're hidden somewhere), so I have to go to K-Mart and hope they're in stock.

This quick look is just kind of a huge bummer.

This looks like an iPhone game. I don't know why but that art style and the three star system always makes me thing that this was an IPhone game first.

Posted by civid

This looks like a crappy, unresponsive Iphone port. Alex's amazing 'urgh' described it perfectly

When are they going to do Quick Looks of not shit games?

Edited by Rhystard

It might just be me but there seems to be some kind of audio crackle? Dunno whether it's the game or not but its super weird!

This is your last chance. After this, there is no turning back. You take the blue pill - the story ends, you wake up in your bed and believe whatever you want to believe. You take the red pill - you stay in Wonderland and I show you how deep the rabbit-hole goes:

I find the name "Struggles" pretty funny, but yeah, everything else about this just seems kind of bad.

Posted by Jayxeno

This game seems really slow...

Posted by Gaff

Wow, Vinny is such a fiend for Combos! Right?!

And if you could understand that terrible pun then you may have a hunch who the intended audience is, with words like "noob", "scrub", "Struggle" etc. Not to mention that the whole UI aesthetic reminds me of Marvel vs Capcom 3.

Anyway, ignoring the fact that Alex can't find the normal attack button and keeps hitting the Smash button, the combat and platforming looks real floaty and weightless.

They JUST did a Quick Look yesterday of Vinny's favorite game of the entire year.

Is this Frog Fractions 2?

I could never figure out Super Metroid's wall jump, so I always stopped playing when I got to that part.

Posted by cbarnes86

Isn't that how you did wall jumps in Super Metroid?

Posted by JoshyLee

I guess it's nice to have Vinny there to balance out Alex's unrelenting "over-it-ness" about everything.

Super Comboman seems like I could get burned out just playing the demo. I'd rather spend my $15 on things that are pizza flavored...

The guy saying Noobtastic and Scrubtacular is the announcer from Skullgirls

Edited by SaturdayNightSpecials

That's how I always try to do triangle jumps at first, until I realize I'm not supposed to. So I can understand why they did it that way, but they should have probably gone with the industry standard triangle jump protocol to avoid confusion.

They also probably shouldn't have made the video game equivalent of a bad webcomic, but maybe they realized that too late.

Posted by Daneian

Isn't direction pad away from wall + jump what Super Metroid used?

This looks like a super shitty Guacamelee.

One of my big pet peeves that's been showing up more and more lately, "Press ____ to skip cutscene". If I really must skip a cutscene, I'll figure it out myself, and why would you sell yourself so short to give your audience the invitation to skip something that was probably very time consuming and expensive to produce? (and what seems to be the best thing about this game, from the look of it)

And that is some serious programmer art in the UI prompts.

I think "Devil May Care" is my least favorite phrase in all of the English language and the only place I hear it is from Brad and Alex on GB. I wonder why that is, it's strange.

Edited by ArjanN

The game is actually pretty fun, you basically have to play it like a fighting game though, Alex really is kinda just button-mashing and doing the smash attack over and over.

Edited by Rotnac

Of all the Adult Swim games out so far, this one seems to be the most tame and disappointing of the bunch which is highly unfortunate.

Yeah, I won't say this game is good as I haven't played it, but it seemed like he wasn't enjoying the combat because he was unwilling to play it as the game intends.

Just like in the Abyss Odyssey QL, Brad's dislike of the combat seemed to stem not from the quality of the mechanics themselves, but that he didn't want to play it like it was created to be played.

Folks complain about boring button-mashy platformers, but these 2 titles with unique fighting game elements are dismissed... because you can't play them like boring button-mashy platformers

Posted by BluPotato

Seems a little too clunky and loose controlling to accomplish what they are aiming for with this.

yeah man im usually not one to comment on Alex but his attitude really is just in your face as you say "over-it-ness" it can kind of be grating. But how else are we going to get our Vinny fix.

So his brother's name is Biscuit and he likes to eat cookies? I really hope they "localize" a version for the UK and change nothing other than swap words so that he has a brother named Cookie that likes biscuits.

@joshwent: Brad disliked Abyss Odyssey? The QL was pretty positive....

Yeah, but I'd say reluctantly positive. He showed the tutorial list of moves, but never really seemed to be engaging with them like a fighting game. Which struck me as odd considering how he's a pretty big Street Fighter and MK fan.

I love Combos but I also know they're terrible and only ever get them on road trips when I stop at a gas station

Posted by wemibelec90

Combos are terrible. I'll take Ritz Bits for my non-great gas station food.
