I think it's ironic that The Fall has the same "your suit powers are not authorized" mechanic as Metroid: Other M, except they justify it soooooooooooooo much better in The Fall. In that yes, of course an AI without free will has to abide by these specific rules that you can't override a lockout on a suit power unless the threat level to the pilot is objectively very high (though how the suit calculates this is kinda glossed over).

Conversely, the idea that Samus would ever agree to disable like 90% of her suit powers to avoid accidentally blowing up a civilian or allied soldier, is pants-on-head retarded and no person would ever agree to be forced to walk around with most of their shit completely inoperable.

Art style reminds me strongly of The Swapper. Looks very neat.

I bought this game because of this quicklook, and this game is incredible. Get it. Also, even if there were no more epsiodes, the game there is great and easily worth the price of admission. Get this game.

Looks cool. I'll be throwing it on my Steam wishlist and get to it once I wrap up the thirty or so games sitting in my library waiting to be played once I finish building my new PC.

Bought this game after watching this, and DAMN it is good... But... There are a few cases of awful adventure game logic here, and on top of that, it took me about an hour of wandering around before I caved and looked up a walkthrough, only to realise that I'd experienced a game breaking bug that was preventing me from continuing and I had to validate my Steam files to continue.

ARID's v/o artist is named Alison Kumar according to the credits. Couldn't find out much more about her, but she did a fantastic job.

Game is seriously worth playing. The story is fantastic and subtle in ways that most video game stories aren't. Ends on a really cool reveal too.

Is it just me, or is the main robot character the same voice actor as EVA from C&C... aka the single greatest install program in the history of man kind.

GBeast is making GB SF look lazy. Was pretty skeptical of the move but I'm loving it!

That's kinda what I was thinking. It's crazy to me that this two person team is putting out more content than the five dudes in SF. I feel like last week they were on point but this week have kinda fallen off. Not quite sure what's going on over there.

They gotta take care of business-stuff.

Really love this game. Bought it immediately after seeing it on Worth Playing. I think the ending's great too, so yeah, everyone should play this.

Between Bot Colony, Mega Man 2, and The Fall, Giant Bomb East has spent the majority of the week fighting robots. I approve.

Well, someone has to stop Skynet, and who better to do that, than Vinny and Alex?

The ARID's voice reminds me of someone... A.I. from StarCraft, maybe? I can't place it... Anway, this game looks amazing.

The terran A.I in StarCraft had a similar voice, yeah. S.H.O.D.A.N. in System Shock and EVA in the original Command & Conquer did too though.

I don't like when people rip off Limbo, but this is still really interesting. I wish there was a space sim attached to it.

I fail to see how this is "ripping off" Limbo in any way, shape, or form.

I like how it's got something similar to the Three Laws of Robotics, that control your behavior and you must work around.

Rare is the game that I turn off the Qlook because I want to experience it all myself. This game looks brilliant, love the story concepts, the characterization of the AIs, perfect AI voice acting (Peter Dinklage take note) and atmosphere.

This is the, what, fifth or sixth game that GB has convinced me to buy via a Quick look. This game is really interesting. Controls are clunky, but the setting and the writing make up for it.

I beat this game a few weeks ago. I bought it on a whim from the Steam Summer Sale and ended up really enjoying it. It is really good.

Not really. It was a bit of a rhetorical question, actually. It just bums me out, because I've discovered some pretty neat shit through that Worth Playing feature.

There is an alarming number of people here who seem to think this game hasn't already been covered in a previous video on the site. Does no one watch Patrick's video content or something?

The danger mechanic sounded interesting, but that exchange between the AI and ninjaman just sold me on the game. Great presentation of an interesting concept.

Not gonna watch the rest of this.

I really want to play it, but if it's gonna be episodic I might just wait for all of them to come out at some point. I dunno I'm really impatient too lol. Hmm... ;/

I just hope this isn't one of those games that starts off soooo promising, but turns batshit crazy or up its own ass by the end.

edit: Fuck, that's an amazing gunshot effect. 2014's Swapper just got bought. Hope it isn't too long 'til the next episodes.

Remember the part where everyone else got all freaked out about Vinny leaving San Francisco?

All I can say is LOLZ

yea its actually pretty funny looking back, continue to say that this NYC initiative, and hiring Dan is the best moves the site has done in the last year.

FYI, The Fall appears to use a simplified version of the cover/shooter system in Gemini Rue (also an adventure game).

I'll probably get The Fall when all the episodes are released - the story seems really interesting.
