Giant Bomb Learns How to be a Bancho

They use the word "Bancho" quite a bit

  
  
As if I wasn't excited enough about Kenka Bancho: Badass Rumble, Giant Bomb had to rub it in our faces that they are well on their way to being most badass badass of all time. If you saw Atlus' offical trailer and found yourself wanting to know more, feel free to check out Giant Bombs excessively long and expansive coverage of the game.
 
RPG elements, quick time insult contests, and awesome eye lasers... what else does a game need? Though, the entire video long all I could think about was Cromartie High School, an underrated comedy about high schoolers focused on being badasses.

The game has an interesting premise but, it looks like it can get repetitive really fast.

43 mins! I guess they enjoyed it! :P I am going to have to watch it later because I do love Vinny and Jeff's commentary on games.

That was nice. Also how did GB get a copy of this game, it be only out in November. Are they that close to Atlus now?

@Agent_Lost: They most likely just got a preview build from Atlus.

wow, i can't believe i watched that all. Looks like fun!

@Agent_Lost: Plus, they're a video game site. I mean, we are an anime site... so we get anime a good deal before it comes out....
 
Unfortunately so does everyone else, they're called fan subs.
