SPIDER WIZARDS!

Four minutes in,

Brad: "Yeah... this thing isn't much of a game."

*checks how much time is left on the video*

....51 minutes?

The Wolverine part made me want to play Bulletstorm again. It's arguably Blum's finest moment.

The superhero thing looked like a simplified version of Freedom Force.

This looks terrible.

Wait...idk how many units are sitting in a warehouse, how the fuck do you loose that much money on this. Give me million dollars and ill go buy a bunch of Etch-a-sketches and figure out how to hook it up to a computer, and sell them.

Not only that, but who the fuck in their right mind would think this thing would sell well?

As a digital artist who uses a real tablet every day I find even the concept of this thing hilariously dumb.

Same here. This thing looks very much like no more than a kids toy, not functional for anything outside of silly fun (which is okay).

But yea, tossing this on the 360/PS3 was obviously a pretty terrible decision, not to mention it was already a late release after the Wii version. Not sure why they expected lightning to strike twice and sell a million copies again, it's sad that hundreds of people who weren't even involved in the decision lost their jobs.

Great quicklook though, always love the off-color ones that aren't your run of the mill AAA game.

It sold over a million copies on the Wii, and has about 10 compatible games. So probably that, I guess. I feel like they should have known that the 360/PS3 wouldn't have been so interested, especially if they didn't offer some semblance of being a good drawing tablet.

+1 Brad for Myrtle Beach reference.

The X 5 thing was hilarious. Oh Vinny.

I came for the THQ jokes.

*Watches quick look and Ryan makes references to Danny Bilson's cat*

I'm happy.

33:33 - Vinny singing a modified Picture Pages theme? Cosby is gonna be pissed.

Diablo? Really? I totally got a Freedom Force vibe from it.

I did too, but only because of the the point-and-click + superheroes + destructible objects in the environment. Mechanically, it has almost nothing in common with it, and I doubt it was a major source of inspiration, given that MSHS is meant for children who are like 10 and under, and probably weren't even born when Freedom Force came out.

Today we learn that Ryan doesn't know how to spell very well.

"Topic starts with CA..."

"Claus, Comics, Comic Books, Correctional Facility... Cowboys?"

I'm going to give him the benefit of the doubt and assume that he thought the clue was Things That Start With "Co"/"C". On the other hand, your hypothesis is supported by Ryan pronouncing words incorrectly sometimes, only some of which are intentional.

This is a sign of the times to come for the WiiU tablet. So much crappy art shovelware.

Vinny is the greatest artist.

Posted by TopCat88

Vinny spewing out guesses at light speed is my favourite GiantBomb moment. It's certainly the most I have ever laughed. When I played Pictionary last, it was never that intense.

Well, at least I have a new avatar

If someone made Win/Mac drivers for the tablet they would shift so many, as cheap wacom alternatives

@redelectric: I have to admit that I still want that damn pen too! Hahaha!

While watching this I noticed that Wolverine's voice actor sounded a hell of a lot like Spyro in the old PS1 games, so I imdb'd it and found out that Wolverine is actually voiced by Steve Blum, but Tom Kenny (Spyro 2 & 3) actually voices Iron Man and MODOK (and Captain America). Really weird.

Posted by Xbox420

Vinny is incredible. Is there anything he can't do?

Edited by iamthejuggler

A lesson in drawing that tells you to use short sketchy lines on top of each other? That's terrible advice.

If anyone is interested in a great drawing program for the DS check out Colors. http://www.naughtynathan.co.uk/?page_id=482

Vinny would be the best person ever to play Pictionary with.

Brad's asking for a Photoshop alternative for the people? That's why God invented GIMP.

i thought xp-pen and kanvus already filled that role...

Pictonary for TNT

Posted by Deusoma

On the one hand, it genuinely sucks that THQ took such a beating on this thing, and I sincerely hope they can recover from it and continue to make good games.
 
On the other hand, I can't help but feel this is some kind of karma after they made Red Faction Armageddon by ignoring everything that made Guerrilla great , and trying to tap into some kind of nostalgia factor for the original Red Faction that does not actually exist. Then, when the game inevitably bombed, they blamed the franchise itself, not the quality of the product or the development direction, and put an unfortunate end to it. 
 
I still have faith in THQ; Saints Row The Third is amazing and I'm really looking forward to Darksiders II, but I can't help but wonder if such blatant franchise mismanagement was a one-off fluke, or if it could happen to those series as well.

Preach on Brad. Paint Shop Pro is still my preferred image editor. GIMP can do all the same things, but it's not remotely user friendly.

I could give or take the uDraw tablet but you guys should make Pictionary a regular feature, maybe during TNT? Loved the Cards Against Humanity TNTs.

Hearing them talk about how they think the Avengers movie is going to suck was funny.
