Oh so it's the Patrick show now? On Patrickbomb?

PatrickBomb.com. Your source for player agency and intricate gameplay systems.

Ostensibly the best thing ever!

Yeah, but there's a certain narrative dissonance going on here.
It's a really clever premise. I'm a fan of the concept, but not so much the execution.

One could almost call it Dark Soulsian in it's approach to the action loops.

It has similarities to ZombiU in it's usage of animation priority. This has to stop before we all go fucking insane.

The connective tissue between all the gameplay systems is interesting.

And isn't Buttrock an interesting way to distinguish characters?
The design doc is clearly inspired by other games in the genre, weaving the fiction and the narrative to create a specific story thread.

Part of this game's charm is that it's endearing.

Oh snap, I didn't realize I already had this game from the Royale bundle it was in. I don't think it even got parsed when I got it, too focused on Shattered Horizon! But now I'm gonna go pull this back and see what happens!

I dug deep into this last night and had a blast! If there is a bear or spiders in the cave, how do you kill them? Can't shoot, so I end up running around till I get bored and eventually let my character get killed. Seasoned SAWA players, please help!

Xbox Live Indie is where I originally found Cthulhu Saves the World, one of my favorite games of all time, so to honor that, I will buy this there. Cause this looks like an AMAZING time.

Edit: I have purchased and played for a couple of hours. Time travel is NOT the weirdest thing in it by a longshot, and it has already surpassed my expectations.

I hate to say it, but I wish QL's would have a "narrated by" label on them. So we could avoid or look for QL teams that people enjoy.

Or just a tag that says "Vinny" or "Not Vinny". (Actually I like everybody but I have to show my love for my fellow paisano).

Bought and played the game. A-mazing. Chased a unicorn, was slaughtered by a dragon, killed some bears and died because of boulders. And I only made it to the great plains! So much more to see and do and get utterly murdered by. Worth every doll... every penny of said dollar.

Why is Patrick in every single Quick Look now? What's going on here? Is it actually "Patrick Klepek's Giant Bomb"?

They are doing it to specifically spite you.

He bought Giant Bomb....this game seems awesome.

@Mars_Cleric: They do, but they won't. I guess they think they're really going to change something if they shed big ol baby tears in every single comment section.

Funny part is that the people that work for and run the site are the ones playing games, posting videos, writing stories, and reaching a fairly large audience. On the other side you have people who just cry about it on a daily basis like their non-ownership of the site is going to influence anything. Pretty easy to see who won.

Close, they are probably doing it to spite all of the same people who always complain about Patrick, to which I say good if it drives those non stop Patrick haters away.

No, I just go straight to the comments section now without watching the videos to see what all the others who agree with me have to say about him, before it gets censored and removed, which it does and they do.

There is also an offensively absurd amount of sexism that makes it clear they didn't know what they were doing.

Sorry Patrick, I love ya, but you do make this kind of easy lol.

Jesus, people. It's alright if you don't like Patrick but keep it to yourself instead of posting it in every QL he's in and talk about the game instead of how you dislike him.
