Definitely anime

Dan has outgrown his childish ways, no time for children games!

Now I have the captain planet song stuck in my head.

Oh Platinum. The streak comes to an end.

Honestly would have prefered Dan to run this QL solo and make up his own story.

Anime Vice has really gone downhill you guys...

Who cares. Its a good show with clever writing, interesting characters, and fantastic action. Even though its targeted for kids, it can sometimes be really dark. It can also be really stupid/funny.

But the game is awful.

Captain Planet. He's a hero. Gonna take pollution down to zero... Goddammit! It is stuck in me head now D:

This game is the perfect starter for Bayonetta 2. I'm more than happy to support Korra and Activision making weird decisions like this - no matter the scores. So far it feels great.

More Jason Looks, please.

Posted by ArsenalFan

Dan's description of watching Nickelodeon is hilarious. More of that please.

Posted by TimmiT

Seems like Jason doesn't know that you can charge up your moves in this game, which is a pretty important thing you need to do if you actually want to do damage outside of doing counters.

Thats a bummer, I was really excited for this game.

You know what, forget it.

I work in an industy with tradesman, i've spent a long time dealing with men pretending to be macho for the sake of not being seen as "nerds" or "dorks" by their peers.

I can smell it on you a mile away Dan, give it a rest. It's sad and it's arrogant. Your on a freaking video games website, your in it as much up to your eyeballs as every one else.

I'm about your age, I'm happily married, I work in a difficult field for tough guys. I think Avatar the last airbender is cool.

Calm down, he's just messing.

Posted by BeachThunder

Oh shit, that ending XD

Posted by BuddyleeR

@rowr: it's a big shtick that Dan has going, I wouldn't get too worked up about it. I think he would completely agree with you.

Posted by robatw

Jason, you are really good at doing Quicklooks. Seriously, keep up the good work!

Posted by Jb

Hey guys, isn't Dan's whole "Cartoon are for kids and I'm an adult" shtick Hi-La-Rious? Almost as funny as his constant wrestling references!

It's almost like the guy he's working for now said that anime is for jerks.

Best ending to a Quick look since Drew played Vinny and Ryan out with some sweet dubstep in that Dark Eye video.

Edited by Chicken008

Bad end. :(

No way dude, if you are annoyed by this constant bring down of your hobbies/interests, speak up loud.

Posted by MEATBALL

Jason is pretty dry, (and I mostly watch Quick Looks for the entertainment value), but man, he did a damn fine job showing this game off and explaining how it works and how he feels about it whilst playing.

The core combat here looks fun...it's just a shame that it sounds like there are a bunch of enemies that are shitty to fight.

Pretty funny ending. :P

Wow, that ending.

@danryckert: Bending = Nanomachines. The Pain from MGS3? He's a Bee Bender.

Posted by CairnsyTheBeard

Hog Wild!

Edited by AlKusanagi

Oh that ending.

I think this is actually perfectly tied into Korra. It's probably a dream she's having between Books 3 and 4, where she's at her lowest and so full of pain and self-loathing that she's forcing herself to suffer, therefore the game is totally meta!

Posted by Hassun

@d4rksh33p: He has gone a bit too far in the past on certain subjects, but people getting worked up about such a minor jab is really pushing it. Imagine if Dan Ryckert would throw a tantrum every time someone would say anything negative about his hobbies like pro-wrestling.

People's personal hobbies are perfectly fine and someone else making jokes about them or even straight up not liking them really shouldn't be able to get any real fan so worked up about it.

And this is coming from the person who called Dan out on his tweets about the football world cup.

As someone that bought this, I can officially say that I bought way worse PSN/XBLA games that were $15.

Posted by irishalwaystaken

Alright I was on board with Jason until he said that DmC was his favourite one. Nothing has 180'd my opinion of someone so fast.

Posted by Hippie_Genocide

I'm confused. I hear A. Stryker telling me how bad it is, but my eyes keep telling how good it is.

Posted by BabyChooChoo

This game doesn't seem....good. I can't say I'm personally disappointed since I'm not a huge Korra fan (outside of season 3 and 4, I actually think the show is preeeetty bad) and I don't think Platinum is above making a bad game, but wow...

Now, I'm just like extra happy Bayo2 comes out this week.

Also, yeah, the ending to this QL is great haha

Edit - Giantbomb is one of the few places i can go to celebrate my hobby without people attempting to belittle over their own insecurites. Sorry Dan it's wearing thin.

I think it's hilarious. Your response makes it doubly so.

Well fucking whatever, maybe i'm getting trolled.

If I can't tell the difference does it even matter?

I guess it's hilarious somehow, i'm not catching the humour i guess.

Your response is exactly why Dan's shtick is so funny.

Come on, Dan's tough manly USA shtick is about as serious as Jeff's hatred of Yoshi.

This guy isn't throwing a tantrum. He is speaking up about his discomfort with how his interests are portrayed. Which is exactly what he should do.

@robbparris: Yeh..funny.

Almost as funny as dedicating an entire personality to a one line joke.

Hey, I like some anime stuff too. But the anime fans who are super defensive about their hobby are amusing to poke fun at, in the same way CoD dude-bros are. It's not malicious, it's light-hearted humor perhaps you just need to lighten up a bit?

Posted by noizy

I would have loved this to happen in the intro: after Jason tells Dan "this is anime", hard cut. Then the QL is Jeff and Jason, because Dan didn't want anything to do with anime.

Yup.

Thanks to Jason for being so indepth.

@jb: It's as funny as him dismissing the Lord of the Rings movies/books as stupid fantasy crap. A great addition to the site.
