The lights are on
Biart's Deep Black series is now on Xbox Live. Jeff Cork, Jason Oestreicher, and I dove into it hoping for intense underwater action. What we got instead was monotonous pop-and-shoot gunplay. Odds are you'll have more fun jumping around in a puddle than batting robot fish in this game. After this video concluded, I continued the journey, and found the next hour of gameplay to be just as uneventful and uninspired. Let's hope Biart doesn't make the same mistakes with Diving: Jurassic Monsters.

these are awesome, test chamber is easily as good as replay, you should get dan in on one of these, or all of them -.-
More Test Chamber is always a good thing. The game didn't look too bad.
Ok only watched half of this, game just look stale after awhile. Love all the Test Chambers you guys are putting out.
Reiner I'm loving test chamber. You've aleady influenced a few purchase decisions. Thanks man!
looks like this game coulda been a contendah
Really liking the Test Chamber! Thanks Reiner! It was the tipping point for me purchasing The Witcher 2! This one, while interesting......not so much. Only underwater game I've played is FEEDING FRENZY (with my five year old daughter)! You know, that way she knows how life works. lol
Best part of the video: When the plasma torch guy got knifed in the top of the head.
Looks like a pretty vanilla TPSer...I would love a really good underwater based game...
Cool. I saw this game on Steam and wondered about it, so I'm glad to see SOMEONE take a look at it. Giantbomb has been slacking with the Quick Looks lately, ever since they partnered up with Gamespot.
This looks like something I would enjoy. Did anyone play hydrophobia? That had a lot of underwater related stuff and was pretty fun.
I think test chamber should have Dan as co-host.....always.
Not surprising a game I've never heard of is less than spectacular.
What is surprising, however, is how long it took you guys to get passed that motion sensor that TURNS OFF when you shoot it. I thought that one was pretty simple, but Jeff was determined to destroy it.
I expected SO much more water.
Nice episode of test chamber. This game doesn't look half bad, a little bland, but overall pretty good. I might check it out.
oooh! this game seems boring! aside from that, the underwater segments look cool, and i like the mecha fish.
Reiner is gonna be so sad when Diving: Jurassic Monsters is horrible.
