I love the Dan-Brad dynamic that's been evolving since Mario Party. Anyone saying he's being mean to Brad aren't paying attention to the parts where Brad laughs hysterically and plays to the heel persona even more.

A godzilla game that you can kill miis in?! That might be the game that would push me to buy a WiiU.

This seems like a nice game to play with friends and I would love more Brad and Dan duos for Quick Looks

Dan is not allowed to tell the Wii U he is an adult until he eats with real plates and silverware

"Hey Brad, how are you at bowling?"

"I'm not the worst. Now, what IS bowling?"

Seems like this version lost a bunch of the charm of the original, despite the added features.

Edit: Not just bowling. Team Brad period! Brad pulled a Brad by persevering and winning in the end!

@shakeitbaby: I'm not convinced Dan isn't some kind of test-tube clone experiment. How do you go 30 years without knowing you should shave with shaving cream?! Or water?!

The more I learn about Dan, the more I think "WHO IS THIS PERSON?!"

Why is the quick look jingle panned slightly to the left?

The game audio as well, weird.

More torture for Brad! I hope this weekend he's enjoying a nice break. Bet he's on a Dota 2 marathon right now :)

#1. Stop trying to do that > stuff on Giant Bomb

#2. The green screen video is flipped around. Look at Dan's shirt.

Yeah, they didn't seem to realise that you could practice your swing by swinging without pressing A. That way you can see how far it's going to go and everything.

No achievement popped for hitting the flagpole! Nintendo really are too stubborn for their own good.

Do I need Motion Plus for this game? Or can I get by with my regular Wiimotes?

@decko5: yeah you need motion plus. They redesigned all the games to work with that.

Awesome! The inclusion of Dan will lead to some Giantbomb wrestling-like storylines. It all started with that 50 round Mario Party game.. it will lead to DEATH!

Brad and Dan should've read the screen prompt in boxing that said they could use two motion controllers OR a motion controller with the nunchuk, not just make assumptions and go in total confusion mode.

They are also both right handed but stood on the side of the ball where a left handed person would swing.

I think the picture-in-picture is mirrored in all their videos for some reason. Look at Dan's shirt and how they hold the remote in their "left" hand. It always weirds me out in Kinect quick looks when they move the opposite direction of their in-game character.

It's to make their positions match the split screen stuff in Kinect games, that way the player on the left will match who's standing on the left, even if their movements are reversed.

That was awesome guys. I know they may not all fun to play but all the sports were fun to watch.

You guys need to start having a weekly Dan vs Brad challenge.

They didn't calibrate with B on each swing, which makes a world of difference on the accuracy. The golf game is amazing to play when you're drunk as hell but some of the later holes/courses are hard.

This quick look got hilarious towards the end. Multiplayer games involving Dan Ryckert are the best videos.

Better question, how does Brad Shoemaker, an American man in his 30s not know the basic rules to bowling??? He doesn't know what a spare is? Has he never went out with his colleagues/friends/coworkers bowling in his whole life?? Seems odd to me! He also didn't know what a Bogey was which is also odd to me because that means he's never played any Tiger Woods game or Wii Sports or Golden Tee etc!! Just seems nuts to me someone could have that limited knowlege of basic sports rules.

So Brad doesn't call himself a bad bowling player...but he doesn't know what a spare is. Okay.

So is releasing a new Super Mario World each year with negligible differences but they still score in the 90's because it just keeps being a great game no matter how many times you buy it.

That's usually how I explain real bowling to people. Just bring your arm back with the ball, then forward when you're ready to do the let go thing.
