Before this QL, I'd never even heard of this. Thank goodness GB has a wiki!

Aaaw a Quick Look EX. 
Oh well, I can survive some "This game is awesome" talk from a developer who worked on the game. 
I remember liking Darwinia and Miltiwinia a lot at some point. I wonder why I stopped playing

Wow.......I hate games like this.  Thanks for the QL...I'll definitely pass on this one.

Played the original on Steam, and it was excellent. Nice to see it resurface on Live..

I remember trying a Darwinia demo a long while ago for the PC, and it never really hooked me. This does look interesting, though, especially Multiwinia.
 
If it weren't for Introversion tiring of their older titles, I'd be hoping for a XBLA version of DEFCON. That was a pretty chaotic game in multiplayer, too, despite some continental imbalances and the ease of ganging up to win a game.

@ZeForgotten:
Actually, they were quite humble and pleasant. Probably the least amount of shilling that I've seen in a QL EX

God I love British people.  These guys seem really nice and a British accent makes me like someone immediately.  Also, never played it before, but I think the game looks awesome... great concept.

I can't think of any games that are like this. Maybe Black&White or Sacrifice, but they are differen. What did you have in mind ?!?!

But it doesn't look to good to me neither.

Five years ago by the way, still has a nice look to it though.  Darwinia was ok, never played Multiwinia but it looks surprisingly good.

Darwinia is great, if you haven't played it yet you owe it to yourself.

I'm getting this on release.
 
Ended up chatting to Introversion at an expo, and they are a really good bunch of guys. Indie but not pretentious

I always thought Darwinia would really benefit from the XBLA scene. Hopefully it will do well.

I always heard about this game... never knew much about it though.  Dude I'm in.  This looks like a lot of goofy fun.

This looks excellent. I was definitely skeptical of what I'd seen before, but this convinced me. Must buy.

I bought this (original not Plus) for $5 on PC sealed, in box, with post and keychain at a discount store about 5 years ago. And I've never gotten past the 4th or 5th level.

These guys were pretty funny but can't say I'm all that interested in the game.

Awesome. I love how they have actual lore and a bit of history to the game. Deep shit for a downloadable game. Amazing art style and looks fun so I'm defs gonna hit this up.

I've always wanted to buy it on Steam, but maybe I'm just going to get it from XBLA.

I got this game on Steam years ago and loved it. Got Multiwinia last year during the Steam sale, but have barely touched it. I'm kind of tempted to get this version too.

How many times did he say "afterlife"? 
 
Wish I had played this, maybe I should get it on Steam.

If "pulling a Brad" is dying in a QL, then "pulling a Ryan" is cutting the QL short when there was more to see... 
  
"I'm callin' it" or "we're out of time" are his go to lines.

Tip of my hat to Ryan for politely listening through all of that Darwinia lore.

This actually looks really interesting. If I had a 360 I'd probably buy it. I'm a PS3 man though.. :(

Ughhh I can't stand the Devs talking about everything.  Just let the game speak for itself and maybe throw in a comment here and there.  Takes 4 minutes just to start the game...
