@MormonWarrior: Dude, 'Splosion Man was fun. Their own games haven't looked very fun, but 'Splosion Man was a ton of fun, single-player and co-op.

This looks rather poor..........twisted pixel should just get a job writing jokes for other people's games

I would have to agree...everything they've made is middling at best and shoddy at worst. It's funny stuff...or at least crazy, which I can get behind, but Splosion Man was a bad platformer (Ms. Splosion Man was worse), The Maw was pre-crazy Twisted Pixel and was a mildly okay little adventury title, Comic Jumper was HORRENDOUS but very funny and the Gunstringer is also really bad but has funny stuff, especially Wavy Tube Man.

I would argue that DoubleFine is the same way most of the time. Quirky, funny games with great writing and horrible gameplay (Brutal Legend, Psychonauts, etc.)

Funny. For a second there I thought you weren't kidding.

Funny. For a second there I didn't think I thought I wasn't sure what you meant?

@Rahf: Yes, that's why I said there's not much they can do for the video. It was just an observation.

@Rox360: It's in the interest of the audience to not show too much of the game. The length of Quick Looks reflect that quite well.

"Our editors provide commentary as they play through 20 minutes or more of uninterrupted gameplay." Uh-huh. I guess there's not much they can do for the video, but this makes the site's definition of a quick look feel dishonest!

Really dude? Some quick looks are > 60 min. They make the length req they feel it takes to show the content.

You want them to add a clause like "We reserve the right to make quick looks less than 20 min in length"

I don't, I was just pointing it out. Before that line was there, no one had any idea what a "quick look" was even supposed to mean. But now it apparently means 20+ minutes. I just found it interesting, is all.

I gotta say, as a huge fan of Gunstringer, this looks pretty bland.

The Altitude Quick Look was shorter. Dave started playing and everyone was like "What is this" "This sucks" "This is boring".

Which is fucked up because Altitude is awesome.

Yeah, altitude IS awesome. I think they made up for it though cause it was basically the only game they talked about on the christmas/e-mail bombcast. I've logged 1000+ hours into that game haha (and been top 10 in its ladder/ competed in multiple community tourneys... I kinda like Altitude)

Yeah, that Quick Look still holds the record for Quick Look where everyone sitting in on it was completely against it from the start, for seemingly no logical reason. Everyone just hated it.

Totally impossible for them to think this is OK/whatever, right?

Now this is one quick look! The introductory text was funny, but the rest of the DLC just looks like some shooting gallery stuff. Then again, it's cheap enough to the point where, if you have the regular game, you should just go ahead and buy it anyway.
