dis gon be good

Posted by SirOptimusPrime

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

Posted by ShakeItBaby

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?"

@siroptimusprime: If anything I feel Brad acts very dismissively towards Dan...

Edited by LevelUpAdrian

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

That golf didn't seem great, but I'm guessing they were just bad at it!

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?!"

Edited by StarErik

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

The game audio as well, weird.

@bluefroman: GB has always mirrored the green screen stuff, I think?

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.

Anyone know why the wii cursor is practically seizure-inducing?

Posted by decko5

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

Posted by ninkendo

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

Posted by Spender

Wii Sports holds up. I want to play this now.

Too many studio lights maybe.

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.

I love how they don't a fucking clue what this thing actually is, but neither do I. Maybe I should pick this up...

Posted by ajroo

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.

Posted by mortal_sb

Dan has probably the most generic taste in rock music that there is.

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.

Posted by AcidBrandon18

Baseball looked pretty cool. I wonder if the WiiU would have done better if this was packed in?

Posted by ChalkCharmer

Think I'm gonna set up my Wii U and get this.. then bring some fools over and play drunk tennis.

I absolutely hate Miis. They're hideous and dumb and they need to be updated.

Posted by Lausebub

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.

*generic personal comment/judgement about Dan Ryckert*

( Great QL guys ;) )

Posted by tophernav

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

Asking $45 for this is kind of insulting.

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.

Posted by elko84

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.
