This week we play a game about talking shapes and attempt to drive a bus around a fake German city.
If you fancy giving any of the games on this week’s show a go, use the links below and be sure to share your thoughts on them in the comments. Or shoot me an email or a Twitter thing to @dannyodwyer.
Play this week's games:
European Bus Driving Simulator (PC) Buy it here.
That ending was frickin hilarious. Well done guys, quality vid. I was in tears of laughter at the end
Living here in Germany = Good
Being a bus driver = Ehhmm... public transport kinda sucks here, if you wanna make things better I challenge you lol
Methinks you must have inadvertently put the vehicle into reverse at the end of the clip...
bus => sub
With all the things the game does wrong, I find it hilarious that they spent the time to allow vehicles to sink
Finally A game that takes my love of buses and my wish of living in Germany and puts them together. I'm gonna have to buy this ASAP!!!!!!!!!!!
Heh that was good laughed my balls off as they did that whole enter route thing trying just to get the bus to move was too funny
On behalf of Germany, I'd like to apologise. We try to prevent these "sims" from escaping, but one or two will inevitably make it over the fence.
A "Fahrerkarte" is a ID card for drivers of commercial vehicles by the way. Really sloppy work that they didn't both translating it.
@jamyskis Is there anything NOT sloppy about this and the sibling games? I have no idea why they have their fanbase (I'm german), they just fake realism by making everything tedious and annoying and as soon as something moves, everything goes to hell because the underlying systems are just garbage.
@trollkind True and true; I can understand we have a great fanbase for similators here but... THIS?? We have things like "Anno 2070" or "The Settlers" and people rather get this??
And a lot more tittles in this line out there that Americans should be thankful that they will provably never see then (believe me, you are glad most of this games do not make it to NA)
@jamyskis I don't have anything against simulators in general, DCS: A-10C is a good example of them done right.
watching you play European Bus Simulator is probably the funnies thing I've ever seen on Gamespot. Good work.

what a funky fantastic show !!!! thanks ! hahaha!! i don't wanna stereotype the simulation games like this but man anorak or what !!!
That was quite the bus ride, complete with all the chaos of the real experience (minus maybe the part where the bus was driving itself). I'm curious how large the instruction manual for European Bus Simulator is now, getting that bus up and running looked like more of a struggle than completing most puzzle games.
I love this show, Danny you're awesome and you and Johnny do bounce some good comedy off each other too.
Thomas was Alone looks like great fun.
Yo Danny, you think gamespot can make an app that makes randomly generated commentary starring you and Johnny while playing games? That would be AMAZING! With you two, I can play ET or Superman 64 and STILL have fun!
