That wasn't as extremes as I was hoping.  
But any QL with Dave is awesome.

Finally a game that lives up to its name and proves once and for all that games are art.

So glad to see Dave back for another QL since that prettyx much always turns out to be fun. You have my gratitude for covering games like this - only GB can deliver stuff like this. 
Even though I'm superficially familiar with those weird-ass vehicle simulators I've never been left so confused  about the damn point of a game. Where the hell were the devs going with this?!?

@sear:  No in a simulator at least extremes weather should be extremes,
The trailer shows some high waves in a storm that look actually pretty nice, but yeah, the lack of damage model is kind of a bummer, as every good simulation should allow you to fail in interesting ways, wondering if you can actually capsize in a storm. The game also seems to try to many things at once, I'd prefer less ships and more detailed simulation then many ships and a lacklustre simulation.
All that said, I really that those type of games still exists, it is nice to see something different from your average cover based shooter every now and then. 
Judging from the Amazon.de reviews the game however seems to suffer from bad case of DRM issue.

The only way this would've been fun, is if you had been drinking Tim Horton's coffee. 
For Vinny: basically EVERYWHERE in Canada, you'll find people drinking Tim's coffee.

It seems like this game would be a lot better if a) the waves were a bit more dramatic, and b) your ship actually had a crew walking around, and you could walk around inside your own ship. 
Just piloting ghost ships around bland environments I can't imagine is very much fun to all but the most hardened ship sim enthusiasts (which I assume is a tiny market).

Better textures would make this more of a simulator. I understand simulators are all about the gameplay experience but when looking inside the boat, everything looks unbelievably bland, especially in this day and age.

It's not Brad's fault the sails catch on fire.

" As much as I enjoy these quick looks, I have to say that it's always a bit unfair when the Giant Bomb guys look at simulators.  It's a very niche market sort of thing and I have to imagine that this game is probably a lot better if you're into the sort of game where you don't spend every minute killing things. "
It may be a niche market thing that only a select few people are into, but this is still awful.

Why oh why can't modern games even implement water physics half as advanced as what WaveRace 64 had in 1996?

If by extremes they mean boring as hell, then yes, it's an accurate title.

I would have been interested in a well done ship simulator. This does not appear to be that, however.

The moment I saw the title of this, the first thought in my head was "Dave Snider's in this, isn't he"

I like how "dumpin'" seems to have become Ryan's catchphrase. "We're trying to find this boat that's dumping... that's dumpin'!"

I bet shipsim.com just got a shit ton of hits.
EDIT: Here's this fucking great blurb from the site:

I love the wiki description for this game. 
Ship Simulator Extremes is a realistic recreation of the task of piloting a ship from point A to point B.

Dave should do a quick look of Silent Hunter or Digital Combat Simulator next (Black Shark or A-10C Warthog)!

For sure, I wuv variety.
And with that DRM, they might have a better game in their pocket that they haven't even thought of yet:
"The honest game consumer sim" in which you have to deal with various annoying DRMs and extremesssituations. Like your internet connection failing with an always online DRM, blizzards server going offline while you want to play starcraft 2 singleplayer, being unable to share a game with your brother or re-installing a game after formatting. Maybe I should write them a letter.
