If this doesn't have sweet FMV I'll cry.

A quick quick look?

wat.

Might be getting this eventually. Gunstringer is a fun diversion.

That looks pretty horrible (even with the in-jokes), but then again, I thought the main game looked bad.

If anyone has tried more of this, was that pretty much all this offers?

Reminds me that i need to watch a play through of Wavy Tube Man.

@Methodis:

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.

At least Kinect now breaks before you even get to gameplay.

Shortest quick look ever?

A Bad Dudes reference right off the bat. Yep, interested.

This game looks like total garbage. Not surprised they're not totally shitting all over it, they're friends with the Twisted Pixel guys, right?

Very nearly spit out my drink at "Oh is Mad Dog McDog a FREAKIN' DOG!?"

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.

Objective video game journalism? On MY Giant Bomb?

KInect still sucks ass and TP is dead to me.

It's so good to see Jeff and Ryan doing a quicklook again and not Patrick & Ryan

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

We must fight to the death to reach a consensus!

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.

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)

Doesn't look bad just... not much to it.

@Sogeman: You're too positive man.

Posted by PatPandaHat

This is a pretty long way to go for a Duck Hunt joke. Especially since I'm not seeing a Hogan's Alley reference anywhere.

Posted by LegendaryChopChop

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

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"

This looks rather poor..........twisted pixel should just get a job writing jokes for other people's games because they don't seem keener on humour than gameplay.

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.)

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.
Posted by Rahf

@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.

Posted by Rox360
@Rahf: Yes, that's why I said there's not much they can do for the video. It was just an observation.

There is a serious lack of FMV here.

@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.
