Great timing!

Just starting eating, the perfect time for a video.

Nice

The throttle reminds me of Need for Speed on Wii when you tilt the Wii mote up it goes fast and down is slow. I think that has a nunchuck too.

I'm scared to watch...
 
I've played a good 4 hours of it myself and it is abysmal.

wtf is this game time for a watch

Posted by DonChipotle

The movie was excellent. The game seems to be most not excellent.

Looks like a fun game in concept and style that is generally hampered by the attempt to tack on the Wii style of controls.  I think Brad is on to something about making a flight sim with RPG mechanics though, that'd be awesome.
 
I think the base idea looks good enough though.  Just...seems to have control issues (like most every Wii game).

No thanks.

Always impressed how they manage to ignore everything the game is trying to tell them - although maybe it's part of the quick looks strange attraction...

My thoughts exactly.

Manoeuvre when it fills up auto positions you behind the enemy plane so you can shoot it down, it is done by simply pressing A. I really dislike this game but I'm of opinion that they should at least play through the entire tutorial before doing these quicklooks. At the end of the mission it says 0 TMC kills, that are the kills that you make thanks to that.
 
The flight assist can be turned and should be turned off, it can kill you and will quite often prevent you from going after a enemy.

" Why was he trying to shoot down what appeared to be an ally for half the video? Aren't enemies indicated by the classic "red" colour? "
No they are green. When playing through the game it confused me quite a bit to.

Well as jeff would say ANIME is for JERKS. Well i guess im a JERK.
But still looks ok.

Wow nice job wasting most of your time shooting your ally (clearly in BLUE!!!) rather than looking at your radar and shooting the enemy (clearly in RED!!!)

Nothing conveys the fun of soaring through the air as the name sky crawlers.

I would have thought they'd let Vinny and Jeff handle all anime-related games :-P. I only say Jeff because he didn't seem to mind the anime cutscenes in Persona 4...infact Persona 4 as a whole is extremely anime-like. I'm sure he doesn't watch anime, but i think he's alot more tolerate of it than Ryan... 
 
No matter, t'was an entertaining QL.

Looks like a fun game some people just can't grasp the controls of for some reason. They could have used the classic controller too.

What part are you talking about exactly? Enemies appear in green on the screen and selected target appears as green on the minimap. "
Enemies appear as red on the radar and enemy name is red next to green target, don't know what your point is

Looks like an ok game. Nothing i would buy, but Im sure someone out there is mighty stoked about it.

Posted by Blair

What a nice thing to come home to.  
 
I'm still craving some Set Phasers to Fun, though.

Not much of a flight combat game fan and indifferent to most anime, so aside from me not having a Wii, I'd take a pass regardless.  Speaking of which I'm far from an anime apologist but c'mon Ryan.  You have to admit that when it comes to english dubbing we've come a long way from Speed Racer and so really that cut scene sounded fine.  Know that every time you mock an english voice actor Nolan North sheds a single tear.  Pretty good video, looking forward to more.

Not the best prepared Quick Look i've ever seen

Edited by Scarabus

The Wii will be remembered for all those games with shitty-ass controls that never worked in reality.

Ryan Davis: Best prediction of a "huh?" in 2010 so far.

It's like Top Gun minus all the homoerotic undertones.

Posted by Delta_Ass

I think Ryan hates anime as much as I do.
 
Ryan's awesome.

Posted by Willy105

The game was released last week?
 
What?

Posted by BenderUnit22

Flight combat doesn't make for very entertaining quick looks it seems.

Posted by Hinamotto

The brifing parts reminded me of the briefings parts on Valkyria Chronicles. With the pictures sliding in and the general/major talking in a window...

Posted by Willy105

This Quick Look confirms at least some sort of rehearsal is necessary when doing these shows, or at least make sure everything OK's before starting the show.....

Huge fan of the AC series. Looking forward to this QL!

Posted by buzz_killington

You know it's going to be like Ace Combat because it says "Ace" right in the title.

Posted by ThatFrood

There is only one flight sim, and it is IL 2 Sturmovik.

lol at the eagle.

For those wondering about Brad's question of this being set in real Europe instead of fictional Europe. He's kind of right, The Sky Crawlers actually takes place in alternate history Europe. I'm guessing this is based on the film, since it came out two years ago, but the basic premise is the world is at peace but to satiate the needs of a people used to nothing but warfare private corporations contract pilots to stage dog fights against each other regularly. It could also be based on the original novel series, which I assume shares a similar storyline.
@Hinamotto:
Ya that's exactly what I was thinking watching this.

i`m omly 5 minutes or so into the game, and i am wondering when Ryan is going to get pissed. wouldn`t blame him...

Or not, because it shows what someone might run into just popping the game in.

"Press Z or R twice!" 
 
Anyway, flying planes has never been really easy in video games, adding motion control doesn't inspire me with a lot of confidence. But hey, dogfighting. Pretty cool.

Not quite, the game has a whole tutorial section that they skipped that explains it all. 
 
Still a bad game though.
Posted by Junes

Yo, where my quick looks with Jeff at?

Posted by Ohvee

Yeah, this Quick Look doesn't really represent the game that well. I got it last night and had a ton of fun. The default control scheme definitely takes some time to become comfortable, but it works pretty well.

Actually Sky Crawlers was very well received and received a great deal of hype because of it (the game was out for a while in Japan).

Ah, the classic military "whoop-dee-whoo" tactic
