This game needs some GB crew attention

Hey friends,

Zero Escape: Virtue's Last Reward comes out this week, and I didn't hear any mention of it on I Love Mondays. This game just really seems like a perfect fit for Giant Bomb and its audience, as it is doing something really different both story wise and mechanically. I'd love to see this game Quick Looked, and therefore discussed on the podcast, not for purchasing advice (I know I want it..) but just because GB is where I come for discussion of important things happening in games today, and knowledge of this game seems like it would be relevant. I know the GB crew keep an ear to whats going on in the forums... so, anyone else in to this?

signed.

They probably would have known about it if the subtitle stayed as good people die

They do not pay attention to Vita games.

My mind is exploding at the fact that you'd think that this game seems like a perfect fit for GB and its audience.

It also comes out for the 3DS

Sounds like a Patrick venture, PM him and ask, he seems like he is always receptive to PM's.

It's also a 3DS game (probably more so, in that it is the successor to a DS game). I think I made my point above as to why it would matter to GB users, but I'd cite the community's championing of Persona 4 to try and keep your mind from exploding too much.

I heard good things about the first, I would love to see a quick look of this, wish they would do more 3ds ones in general.

#8 Edited by FluxWaveZ (19388 posts) -

@Abendlaender: @evanbower: That's right, it's a 3DS game too!

But Persona 4 has practically nothing in common with Good People Die (@Animasta, which I agree should have remained the title; much more compelling). Look at GB's reception to 999, Hotel Dusk, the Professor Layton games (a bit more popular, but they center more around puzzles than the rest), the Ace Attorney series or any other text based, handheld game. Do you really think those are the kinds of games that people care about on Giant Bomb? Because the popularity of the titles I've cited demonstrate quite the contrary.

999 wasn't covered, which is why a forum where I argue that they should cover it exists. Other than that, I don't see your argument. Layton games are consistently covered and enjoyed by the staff members, Hotel Dusk came out before Giant Bomb was a thing, and even the Ace Attorney Wii Ware release was Quick Looked.

Quick Look it!

#12 Posted by FluxWaveZ (19388 posts) -

@evanbower: Oh, so you really just mean covered in a Quick Look? I thought you were talking about its appeal to the audience of this website. If all you mean is a video of the game, well, I wouldn't count it out. It comes out tomorrow and it doesn't seem like they'll Quick Look it this week, but maybe they'll bother doing one eventually.

#13 Posted by BlackLagoon (1460 posts) -

Ryan's into the Saw and Cube movies as I recall, and I expect Patrick is too... The franchise's similarity to those should appeal to them I would think.

#14 Posted by ESREVER (2698 posts) -

As much as I'm going to love this game, it doesn't lend itself well to the Quick Look format. I'm pretty sure Patrick knows about 999 and likes it. The only coverage I could ask for is maybe a review of it or just talking about it or something. Its not a game you would want to see footage of in a Quick Look style because that will just ruin parts of the game. Heavily based on story and the only gameplay to be had are escape the room puzzles. It would probably make for a horrible QL in all honesty.

#15 Posted by FluxWaveZ (19388 posts) -

@ESREVER: I don't think a Quick Look of, say, the demo's "Escape" segment would spoil anything. It could, however, be real boring, especially if they get confused and don't know how to solve the puzzle.

#16 Posted by ESREVER (2698 posts) -

@FluxWaveZ: You're right about the demo bit. That probably wouldn't be a problem in terms of spoiling anything. Like you said though, that would just be torturous to watch.

#17 Posted by Bocam (3828 posts) -

Well the game has a cold open that leads directly into a puzzle. It would make a good QL

#18 Posted by Animasta (14727 posts) -

Also Patrick totally said maybe when someone asked him on twitter a while back

Except when they play through the entire game on camera, twice, simultaneously.

#22 Posted by BlackLagoon (1460 posts) -

@ESREVER: I don't see how this is that different from the quick looks they've done for adventure games. Heck, they even did one for the DS detective game that had a similar structure, trying to remember the name...

#24 Posted by Jimi (1126 posts) -

Not sure if it would fit a quick look. If it's anything like the first the parts where you actually play the game are very good puzzles but the real appeal is the hours of text you read. Would love for a review though, Patrick seems like the best fit.

Jeff claims they're gonna Quick Look everything and this is a video game so I guess it will be Quick Looked.

I was actually gonna say "Final Fantasy VII". You know, tiers in terms of publicity. Mario's high tier (everybody's heard of him), Legacy of Kain's mid-tier (pretty much only gamers know what this is), Nanatsu Kaze no Shima Monogatari's low tier (only I've heard of it).

I now want to play your creepy furry game

I believe you're thinking of Again. If they Quick Look VLR, they'd probably have to choose an area that would show the puzzle aspects, as well as the dialog but it can't be too spoilery.

Dragon's Dogma was a great game that Patrick enjoyed. While flawed the game shows promise and with a possible sequel some of the issues hopefully will be fixed.

Tossing my interested vote into the pile.

#38 Posted by JZ (2120 posts) -

999-2 hell yeah Also it's a 3ds game too

#39 Posted by newmarcom (297 posts) -

I'd love to see a quick look but I wouldn't watch it until I finish a playthrough.

#40 Edited by AndrewB (7691 posts) -

Ehhhh whatever, it's probably not a game that would Quick Look well. Kinda as boring as I'd find watching someone else play a Professor Layton game (which seems like it's coming this week as well).

Even though I'd love for it to get some attention. If it's as quality as 999 was (and I feel like this game is looking actually *better* in every way), it deserves it.

Also, voiced Clover!

#41 Posted by supamon (1334 posts) -

Quick look it! The first one was a pretty special gem.

#42 Posted by aurahack (2289 posts) -

You have me stumped on how this would be a perfect fit for the GB crew.

#43 Posted by AndrewB (7691 posts) -

@aurahack: I haven't even heard a peep out of the people I'd expect to be all over it, like Brad or Vinny.

#44 Posted by FluxWaveZ (19388 posts) -

@AndrewB: But why would you expect them to be into this kind of game? Maybe Vinny, but even then I wouldn't really see him being into this.

Patrick's the only one I could see being interested in VLR.

Because Brad likes Layton. Yeah, okay, there are differences, but the core gameplay is puzzle-solving. And Vinny just seems to like all of the "obscure" stuff I like. Obviously I was wrong.

They have mention several times before about how they don't have the equipment to do QL for Vita games.

They've mentioned in this thread that this game is also a 3DS followup to a DS game.

#48 Posted by aurahack (2289 posts) -

@AndrewB: I don't see how either of them, or anyone else on the staff, would be into an niche, mid-tier looking J-Adventure game for the Vita.

And 3DS, sorry. Not that it really makes that much of a difference, amidst all the actual important games coming out right now. :|
