The art style looks very good and the guys behind the game seem to have a nice sense of humor and good ideas for the gameplay. If it plays well and has enough variety in the activities De blob 2 ccould be very good (didn't play the 1st one).

Don't like the game designers in on quick-looks (too much like infomercials).

From what they said, all the mechanical improvements to the game sounds fantastic, and this is shaping up to be much better than the first one, which I liked.
 
Also symbols might help for the color blind....or shapes.

Loved De Blob on Wii. I'll be sure and get this when it hits 360. Getting achievements for playing De Blob sounds like a win-win.

Is 'de Blob' pronounced as 'the Blob', like it's an article? If so, then it's written the way we dutch people write 'the'.

The original was a bitch to play with the waggle
Good to see a checkpoint system, since I took over an hour on the original's first level (playing OCD style)

That's because it's based on a Dutch student project, from the de Blob page: " de Blob is based on the PC game of the same name, designed by nine students studying Game Design & Development at Utrecht University’s School of the Arts in the Netherlands."

Usually I agree, but  I think these guys did really well. They took everything in jest and were pretty funny at times.

Could this game really be banned if it did reference/suggest graffiti?

Come on, guys! Of course they have to promote their product. QLs are a perfect opportunity to do that. As long as it isn't too overt, I'm perfectly okay with it.

Ah, de Blob. I never beat you, mostly because each level took me over an hour at a time to play (I wanted to do everything my first time through) but I effing love you. 
 
EDIT: Dear God. This looks just like the Wii one in terms of graphics. It was gorgeous on the Wii, but wow.

I just think that quick looks are better when they are an unbiased act of discovery rather than being talked through by an expert who tries to put a positive spin on every aspect of their product. I mean this guy seemed alright and is certainly no worse than any other game designer doing one of these QL's but they obviously always try to make their game sound like the best game ever made.

That Aussie bloke was pretty damn cool as far as Quick-look EX guests have been.
 
His digs at colourblind people comparing them to creationists saying that they just don't want to accept the colours that are there was pretty fucking hilarious.

Pretty sure that's how it works. Remember Jet Grind Radio and JSRF? They had an unskippable "yo dudes, graffiti is illegal, PLEASE don't do it a'ight?" screen that hung around for a solid five seconds before the game would start up. I bet, without that disclaimer, some jerk could accuse the games of encouraging illegal activity or whatever. I don't know... Who knows how the world works these days?
 
Anyway, good quick look! First game fascinated me, but I never really understood it, and never bothered finding out what it was because, hey, I didn't have a system that could play it. But now I know what it's about, I know some more about the dudes making it, and it genuinely looks like fun! You know a game hits a right note when you watch someone play it and find yourself imagining what you would've done differently.
 
That turquoise tree was the hottest thing I've ever seen. More of that color, please!
