Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!

    What happens around the 10-12 minute mark is definitely evidence in the "Mike is a bad person sometimes" category.

    With hilarious results.

    LOL! Not exactly a 'pick up and learn to play in 15mins' kinda game, fella's! That was painful to watch, haha! What's not painful to watch are people who have the time to learn the controls... A judgement based on 15mins is not going to be pretty... which it wasn't. Give this game a few sessions to sink in and the gnar will be shredded!

    I actually laughed out loud when Mike had the guy laying on the snow and he started talking about torque. Literally no media in at least a few years have gotten me to actually LOL. I know Mike can be extremely dismissive of these games, but goddamn if it isn't hilarious.

    I hear where you're coming from, but I have to agree with Slortex. I completely lost my shit and was having problems breathing I was laughing so much at Mike's schtick. That's what I come to First 15 for, not for balanced and insightful reviews of videogames. There's plenty of other (actual) reviewers for that kind of thing.

    Oh for sure! Don't get me wong, it provided the lulz haha! I guess this might be exactly the kind of game to play for 'First 15' :biggrin:

    That might seem like a needlessly complicated way to just make your guy stop moving... but as someone who has skied in the past I can state with confidence that it is legitimately that difficult to stop if you don't know how.

    That was brilliant. When Mike said it was an N64 game I thought it a little harsh, until I saw the glitchy ass movement/cutting through ramps.

    Clearly a complex game, like Project Cars, but I enjoy their flailing attempts!

    As soon as it started and you couldn't actually see the board under your feet because it was putting the snow on top, I knew we were in for a treat. This has to be the most sarcastic Mike's ever been about a game haha. Although I still think it's astonishing he couldn't figure out that the ghost was himself demonstrating the technique...

    I laughed so hard at Mike's antics I was afraid I would hurt myself.
