Dont give a shit double fine has made some mediocre xbla games and this looks just as mediocre as the rest 

You're crazy!  I might agree with you on Costume Quest, while the art design and the story were all there, the combat lacked depth, and the collectables were easy to find.  I'd still put it a step above mediocrity, personally...  but I could see where you're coming from.

Stacking on the other hand, is AMAZING, great fun to play, great art design, and very funny. How could you call it Mediocre?
Totally excited for Trenched, and anything Double Fine does next.

@Vigorousjammer: I actually largely preferred Costume Quest to Stacking, something about Stacking's movement just really bothered me and I couldn't get into it. Also, the pacing on the cutscenes was troubling. 
 
I haven't watched this QL yet (running out to do some errands,) but I just wanted to comment about how it seems like they can get someone from DoubleFine to show up for a QLEX pretty easily now, which I actually think is pretty cool. It means I'll probably wait for the demo as I really don't care for QLEX's of games I haven't played, but once I've played it I look forward to coming back and watching this.

Seriously though, give them a break, mech games are typically all about customization and gameplay mechanics, it's good to know how deep the customization is all about.

Man. I really wish this was coming out on PSN. I have a 360, but haven't paid for live in like, 2 years. 
 
Leave it to DoubelFine to come up with a reason for me to consider getting XBL again. I'd still rather sit and hope for a PSN release, but if it's being published by Microsoft, I guess that's a no.

What's the best way to reinvent the tower defense genre? Not make your game look like a tower defense game, apparently.

25 minutes of mech porn makes for a boring quick look.  
 
The part where it's a game looks alright, but I'm tired of defending towers.
