    Watch the first 15 tedious, gross minutes of LocoCycle

    http://www.polygon.com/2013/11/19/51...le-intro-video
    LocoCycle, a game in which a motorcycle drags a man down a highway, using his body as a weapon, intends to be humorous.

    Instead it's a humiliating blemish on the launch of the Xbox One. I don't intend to editorialize the issue too much I'll leave that for Polygon's review but I do want to share the first 15 minutes of the game, a live-action cutscene that is an uncomfortable pile-up of unfunny stereotypes and awkward editing.
    How does **** like this get approved?

    I'm all for being impartial and objective but that was just plain awful.

    I didn't expect much for only a $20:00 game.

    I wouldn't expect that from a free to play title. Charging 20 is robbery.

    Some people will still buy the game. Luckily there are others good titles like KI, Forza, Ryse and DR3.

    My giddy aunt! I didn't even think it was for real at first. I think that might be one of the worst games I've seen in years.

    $20 dollars is a lot for a downloadable title...

    Oh okay he fell off and got hung up and his bike is dragging him. That's a tiny bit better than what I expected. Still looks awful, but at least doesn't have the connotations I imagined.

    Somehow, the XBO has the poorest Twisted Metal like bike game in history AND a bad Panzer Dragoon wannabee FROM THE DESIGNER OF PANZER DRAGOON!!!

    At least Crimson Saga looks okay, this reminds me of MDK2 running on my TNT2 card, truly sad!

    Well, if you consider Minecraft Xbox 360 Edition was only $20 and it's stolen my children hearts and minds, LocoCycle may be a wee bit on the pricey side.

    Crimson Dragon. You must have been thinking about Crimson Gem Saga and got the two crossed up.

    I'm reserving judgement on Crimson Dragon, too. I kind of want to play it just for nostalgia. At first I didn't like the idea you pay for it, it's not free-to-play, but there are in-app purchases. Then I decided, well it's not any different than buying cars and decals for disc-based racing games or character uniforms and gear for disc-based online shooters. I don't balk at buying and playing those. I don't buy the in-app stuff, but I play the games without even thinking about the fact they want me to buy trinkets.
