Mortal Kombat X moves forward with a snappier version of the previous game's fighting and some cool new characters, but the story and other features around the edges feel a bit rough in spots.
The ways that Axiom Verge resembles Metroid help set up and drive home the ways that Axiom Verge is most definitely not Metroid.
Hotline Miami's thrillingly brutal gameplay is stretched to the point of breaking in this aesthetically pleasing, but otherwise disappointing sequel.

Jeff and Vinny see how well WWE'13 replicates core facets of pro wrestling, like ghosts and time travel.

Let's get ready to rumble!
It wasn't here, then it was.
I expect to laugh at this quick look. I'll be back in an hour with my results.
Ghosts can't eat, words of wisdom right there man, really hits home.
Jeff is Giant Bomb's resident wrestling expert.
...this is going to be a fun QL.
THE FUCK is that screencap?
The graphics in this game still look like they belong on ps2. Early ps2.
I already lost it at the thumbnail. This is going to be great!
Is this WWE: Deadly Premonition or something? This should be a hell of a Quick Look.
EDIT: Alright, seeing the Road Dogg come out brings back some memories. I may pick this up thanks to the great work they've done with the roster. Have to say I'm still not a fan of that damn pin system - played WWE '11 and although you can kind of mash out of it, I found trying to use the timing system just led to too many moments like Jeff's first match where you're pinned for the 3-count fall way before you should be.
EDIT2: Do you smell what I'm cooking? It's time travel. Fan-tastic.
I suplexed a dude in Halo last night. It was pretty great.
Expectations for this quick look went through the roof after seeing that thumbnail.
WELP this is going to be amazing.
they actually censor ass in road doggs entrance? wtf actually happened to the wwe my god
Watching Vinny try to guess who the guys on the roster are is hilarious. "Is that the guy that does the X on his crotch?"
WWE 13 is an awesome, awesome wrestling game. Just wanted to get that in before Jeff shits all over everything.
Grand Master Sexay? Jesus Christ
Yeah it really is. I haven't really watched WWE in about 10 years, but this game is great. You can completely ignore all the shitty new guys if you want.
im a ghostiet
This should be great. Just look at that thumbnail!
Wait a minute... Who are all these random dudes in shorts and hair?
THIS is a REAL roster
The story creator is the GREATEST! I feel like it was what Peter Molyneux wanted The Movies to be.

I like the Dynasty Warriors style games, you guys.... I feel for you.
I really want an "Edit Universe" button.
I adore Vinny's lack of knowledge <3
"Wait so THIS guy does the X-Chop on the crotch right?"
Ah man this is amazing. They should make one of these games that is all about creating the story scenes but has no actual wrestling in it.
Oh god the story editing stuff is hilarious.
Ghost Problems is the best story ever written.
Jeff does a wonderful job every year of making these games look completely terrible. Though I'd love an extended 'story editor' video feature...That shit is too funny, every time!
I am really disappointed and frustrated with this years game. The wrestling is so so good this year yet there are still countless idiosyncratic design choices, bugs, unnecessary limitations and weird presentation omissions.
You even see it in this video, ladders and chairs don't make sounds in a TLC match even though they do in other matches. The physics are completely off this time, couple years ago they were just right, last year they were too heavy and this year too loose and erratic, more than ever before. And that's just the beginning.
Yukes Don't Care.
Somebody finish the Time Travel story in Community Creations!
I haven't laughed my ass off that hard in a long time. That ghost story was so damn funny.
Well that was like the thing ever. I look forward to the wwe quicklook every year.
I want a weekly feature where Jeff views more stories because fuck buying this game.
With a preview image like that, how can anyone NOT watch this?
It's kind of gross that Yukes has been recycling this same game every year since those "Attitude" era wrestlers were the active roster.
That was fucking awesome. I might actually get this game now!
Funniest quick look ever
"he puts his ass on people, but he's not Mr. Ass"
I actually have a tension headache from all the laughing this past hour. I didn't know that was possible until now.
Explaining wrestling to people who don't follow wrestling pretty much always ensures high comedy.
"He puts his ass on people, but he's not Mr. Ass."
EDIT: "Somebody went to fucking DeviantArt and said ... I will give you $35 if you can draw me Mike Tyson ..."
Ghost Problems needs to be a WWE storyline now!
By the way Jeff, The Rock's traps arent that big.... they are bigger!
I completely lost it near the end when I saw Kharma with the internet championship. What a great QL
The guy that made the ghost problems story is actually a fan of the site.
The Rock is a looper!!
Lawler: "He's got wood."
"Got to wake up! The future has changed." Fan-tas-tic brothers.
lol Time traveling scenario would be awesome.Only ideas like Jeff's could save wrestling entertainment.
Use your keyboard!
