Oh Gods, has it really been 9 years since the Bombastica?

I don't think I'm ready to watch this one today.

Apparently Bot Colony is still active and as of May 5th 2021 just posted an updated about being implemented in the current Unreal Engine.

I think this is fair comment because they actually are doing that. But I think they can do that because Kingdom Hearts is the least important part of the video.

Seconding this.

This thing differs from Metal Gear Scanlon in that Jan doesn't have the same investment in showcasing Metal Gear as Dan, and that should be clear from them ducking out KH1 so quickly.

I feel sorry for the folks coming in here hoping for something more earnest, but it's most just a vehicle.

In 2021 how do people feel about the 'Kaine thing', and I don't mean the outfit?

Having seen this one through, I think the quality of the storytelling falls off as it goes along, this Quick Look is some of the strongest content on offer.

Which is a shame, there's a good concept in here but I don't feel the pay off was satisfying.

We've lost a lot of experience we had at making these types of games over the last 15-20 years. The nicest thing I can say about Two Point is that it's such a true successor to Theme Hospital is that it made no effort to fix the originals flaws.

For anyone who isn't aware the the original EG was made by Elixir Studios - who also put out Republic the Revolution - before it closed down. The founder of Elixir went onto a new project called "Deep Mind" you may have heard of it. Now he runs the AI division at Google.

For another disappointing return to late 90s Management Games, maybe look at Starbase Startopia, with the original Startopia being another game put out by former Bullfrog devs - with EG coming from Bullfrog via Lionhead.

@c_toc: I forget if Alex has done any Harmonix QLs? I suspect he'd see it as a conflict of interests.

@bisonhero: Id argue this was my response to Octodad too, but there's less of a dexterity ceiling here

There's something about a video where Jeff misses the chance to bring up Lombaxes ... feels like a missed opportunity.

Little Bot Cerny over here wants to know why noone liked his game.
