This sounds like the worst fucking game ever!

This game allows you to cheat, right?

It's $2.99 a pop doping microtransactions.

As somebody who has done some lower Cat racing, and follows pro cycling, watching this was painful. Hilarious, but painful.

@jedo: If you are looking for a biking simulator you should check out MTBFreeride.

Drew played it on an Unprofessional Friday awhile back, it's a lot of fun. Rift and Hydra support are planned, multiplayer as well. It's still in development, make sure to find the framerate cap option, it behaves strangely above 60fps.

I just watched an hour of Tour de France 2014 so I guess I'm loving the Alex/Vinny dynamic.

As someone who grew up with bicycling geek parents, the detail they go into with this is actually pretty impressive. The gameplay just looks dull.

Edited by Zeik

The first thing I thought of when the game mentioned "attacking" was Full Throttle. I am so happy Vinny eventually got around to making a dumb joke about it.

Posted by Tortoise

Can you hook it up to an exercise bike and pedal in virtual reality? I bet there'd be a market for that kind of shit.

Posted by cooljammer00

Yeah, @vinny, using the phrase "Hey, when do you get off?"...I knew where that story was going before @alex, and apparently you, did.

This looks like the most boring game in the world.

I worry I'm going to get exhausted from just watching this video.

Posted by LiquidPrince

I can't believe I watched all of that...

Posted by BaconBuTTy

@vinny and @alex quicklooks have been a joy so far. I love GiantBEAST.

Thanks chaps!

How come no ones tires have spokes in this game? It's all carbon fiber wheels

Posted by John1912

Holy shit! Just saw this is a PS4 title, and fucking annual?! Who buys this shit? I was thinking this was prob PC only, and while it has the licence for Tour de France this looks about as quality as Farm Simulator.

Huh, that thing with the sticks opening up menus that kept happening to @vinny, must be a common issue on Dual shock 3 controllers - it started happening with one of mine a couple of months ago, seems like something is short circuiting so that certain directions on the sticks suddenly correspond to face buttons. When playing Battlefield 4 and Defiance I'd suddenly start throwing grenades and open up menus when trying to aim or do melee attacks. Sometimes the controller would get crazy in the XMB just randomly scrolling around and starting apps.

I'm not a fan of using youtube videos to fix things or explain problems with hardware, but this video was my saving grace a few months back when I noticed in GTA5 I would randomly eject from a car and other anomalies

Watching this makes me want to play Eurotruck Simulator 2.

2 Vinny Quick looks in 2 days, new content thru Monday??? God Bless Vinny Caravella and GBEAST!!!

"this guy is falling behind and i'm not cool with that."

"kick him off the team."

Great quick look you guys. =)

Edited by beef_melody

I feel like the developers really missed a trick not allowing an incredible chain reaction of collisions.

edit: Vinny "when do you get off?" story was priceless.

Posted by Wholemeal

I can't believe I watched an hour of two people riding a bicycle. But somehow @vinny and @alex made it entertaining.

Posted by fisk0

@kmg90: Thanks! I bought one of those BF4 controllers when that happened since most of the games I still play on my PS3 can either be reconfigured to use L2/R2 instead of L1/R1 for shooting or aren't shooters, but I still have the misbehaving controller, so I may look into fixing that one.

The lack of collisions between bikers was disappointing. Thanks for the QL Alex and Vinny.

Just because something is not for you doesn't mean it's bad. I'm sure there are plenty of people that enjoy games like this. Taste has nothing to with quality.

Nah, this game is objectively awful.

@2headedninja:

Amigo, mon ami, you needn't be so harsh with our friend here. This game bears certain traits which appear, as we say in the business, shitty. I'm sure some people enjoy the series, as it continues to exist, but it does appear, to me and many others, to be quite dull.

Also, the visuals are lackluster, the lack of collision makes the game look cheap (as it probably is), and all you do is fucking ride a bike for an entire hour (maybe that's what cycling enthusiasts look for in a game).

He has reasons to claim shit. He didn't say, "Well looks like I wouldn't enjoy this game, so it must be shit." He instead compared it to Farming Simulator, a game widely considered to be of poor quality, whether you enjoy farming or not.

Posted by DeadpanCakes

Yup... that certainly was an hour of people biking.

Also: Biiiiicycle! Biiiiicycle!

Posted by eccentrix

This seems like a cool game. Is it a shame that there's no online?

Edited by TheMadMan007

Man.... This seems like a "interesting" game to play for about 5-10 mins at most. I fear that all these types of games are going to cause another video game crash. I can see this selling for maybe $10-15, but I doubt that this will sell at full retail price all that much.

"You didn't make any friends today; your attitude will encourage your opponents to attack."

One of the great truths hidden in Tour de France 2014 the video game.

Posted by Twisted

That story Vinny told towards the end about inadvertently trying to hook up with another lady is hilarious.

"Supplements."

Posted by Unsupervised

Great first episode of Tour de Beast, the new podcast where Vinny and Alex shoot the shit while losing an hour long bike race.

Posted by thainatos

Alex and Vinny is a great matchup. Really great to get more Alex content.

One minute in and this is already casually racist.

Th-the maillot jaune has been sullied! ;~;

I'm impressed how accurately this game has managed to capture the tedious boredom that is 97% of bicycle tour racing. I got way in to watching it when Lance "Vance Dance" Armstrong was cheating the shit out of the whole thing for years and came to realize that the winner is the guy who can do consistently well on the climbs and time trials, and basically just putz around for the rest of it in the middle of the pack. The broadcasts are regularly just tuning in to see that the race leader is way in back talking to his fucking team car or drinking a soda or something and nothing happens FOR THREE WEEKS.

I'm so glad Vinny is doing Quicklooks again...

Casually flirty Vinny

@porgesdavid: must've lost your train of thought like dusty.

Edited by TheMasterDS

New Yorkers describing their summer as hot seems ridiculous. Let me check what temperatures they're describing as hot. From what I can tell looking at weather apps many of their highs are lower than DFW's temperatures at midnight. Now THAT'S hot.

Mind you we have fantastic AC in Texas so it's cool.

Worth it for Vinny's awkward story. At least that's what I'm gonna keep telling myself.
