Nice. I liked the special presentation of the unskippable guy. It was funny to see him doing the rant.

X-Blades should sell well in Brasil. We all prefer butts over breasts here.

Kill a imp today.

Just gonna throw this out there, but you CAN switch to specific unit groups. All you gotta do is select all units and press the right trigger.

Best Zp angry reviewers:
3rd - Graham
2nd - ZP
1st - weird demon thing

He always goes out on a great joke...

Imp.

This was amazing all the way through. And X-Blades looks like such garbage.

Damn, both crossovers were hilarious, but good job to Graham, I enjoyed it about as much as the Halo Wars review.

I actually liked Graham's part, I thought it was neat he lived up to his side of the challenge.

I also thorougly enjoyed the Brandon Crisp joke, that was well placed.

Overall, it was an enjoyable review.

Halo wars seemed like a really convenient target. I'd like to see dawn of war 2, which I think is half decent, probably because traditional RTS games allienate me.

Anyway for the record Unskippible are lame and unfunny, Ben's appearance actually made it watchable. And their attempt at ZP just came across as trying way to har to be like yahtzee.

hold on.

"THEY ACTUALLY GET PAID FOR THAT CGI COMMENTARY NONSENCE?"

Unskippable guy was an excellent parody of Yahtzee. He did Yahtzee much better than Yahtzee did him.

WHAT
ARBITRARY
SILLINESS

Great as always. The new guy at the start didn't do too bad, and I liked the end bit with the demons.

Unskippable was great, Yahtzee's top shelf as usual.
Nice reviews, I had many lulz.

Dear God this was freaking hilarious.

I woke people up in the house laughing and almost threw up laughing.

The "Clicking on pricks" and "Timer bullshit" bits were the funniest thing Ive ever heard.

Massive kudos.

What I really like about Yahtzee`s latest reviews is that he has essentially gone back to his roots. Some of his reviews did not really qualify as "reviews" since they seemed to exist purely for the sake of humour. However, these last episodes he has gone back to actually reviewing the games and adding some humour into it.

Now, if we could just convince him to start putting different songs into the beginnings and ends of his reviews again...

i liked halo wars and i thought that the start was REALLY REALLY REALLY................good

good review one of the best ones you have did

I didn't get the part at the beginning? Some annoying guy trying to be Yahtzee and failing?

Also, he mentioned Battle Royale! So does yahtzee read manga, or what?

I didn't mind Halo Wars. It wasn't bad...then again it wasn't great

Wasn't that the point of him doing a ZP style review?

The Unskippable guy was an April Fools Joke, I suggest some of you check your calenders eh?

Both guys did a good job, the Skip guy did a good parody up to where he "Ran out" of things to say.

Oh god, that was just as good as last weeks punchline. That just made my pretty miserable day. Thinks, Good Sir Yahtzee. And you too, Unskippable Guy #1

I keep watching that scene about the mission at the end, and love it. Still laughing hard. Although I could ahve told you an RTS on a console was a dumb idea since I was a toddler. YOu want a good RTS it's called SUPREME COMMANDER. The poor game doesn't get enough respect because of games like Starcraft. GOd damn idiots, there are better things out there and just cause the game was good back then doesn't mean it is now. FUCK! Sry about that I just hate people like that. Oh yeah Go Pony Jam!

I thought this was an excellent review, i havent laughed at one in a while (well two or three weeks but before that a while) so i really enjoyed this one.

I love your video and has not hated or not liked one of them

WOOO! i was one of those annoying dipshits who bugged him into doing an RTS!!

I ANNOYED YAHTZEE!! LIFE IS COMPLETE!!!

if you want a "good" RTS, try some of EA's new C&C titles - RA3 is actually pretty immersive, despite the annoying back-up general you're forced to have - but game-killing tank spam is virtually unusable, so you're forced to be smart with the game, which is where the fun of RTS play comes from, creatively smacking down the objective.. in that regard, the dawn of war franchise delivers big-time..

also, both of the petroglyph titles are pretty good, even though one of them is a star wars game and the other has a dodgy interface..

lastly, one word: starcraft.... two!

SupCom is about macromanagement, as opposed to micro.. it appeals to a different kind of gamer, one who likes tank spam.. yeah, i think yahtzee would live it..

It's true, patience is a virtue in RTS games and the average twitchy Halo fan won't have the patience to play Halo Wars. And as a veteran of playing an RTS based around the third-person shooter Army Men: Sarge's Army back on the N64, consoles, much like they are with FPS games, are at a severe disadvantage when it comes to playability of RTS games. Benig able to scroll over multiple targets, more accurate targeting of priority targts, they're much easier on PCs than they are on consoles.

Also, tanks are always going to be harder to maneuver than ground troops, as all ground troops are. It's easier to move around a battalion of 15 random man-children with assault rifles than it is 5 tanks capable of sending you to the moon. It follows the classic Rock-Paper-Scissors ideal of units. The fast unit defeats the long-range unit, the long-range unit defeats the powerful unit, the powerful unit defeats the fast unit.

As for X-Blades, it didn't look appealing in any way, as any game where the box art depicts a slutty woman in some semi-erotic pose is (I'd rather focus on the action of the game, not some piece of pixellated flab) not a good selling point, and 99 times out of 100 is not worth buying the game.

Finally, on the actual review, excellent as usual, Yahtzee.

Graham at the beginning was pretty funny.

This was arguably one of the best ZP videos

Wow. Kudos to Graham. That was pretty damn good. I've only watched one other spin-off of Yahtzee that was ever any good. Guess this makes two.

Gods, I lost it after the 'Pedigree Chum' bit. And yes, RTS games do suck sweaty ass. I've yet to see one that, with the exception of a poorly-implemented escort mission here and there, doesn't devolve into a poorly-balanced war of attrition eventually. I recall back in the days of Command & Conquer: Red Alert 2, victory in 90% of the game came down to exactly how fast you could build helicopter pads.

Just for the record, the mission he is talking about is Shield World. The reason that there is a timer in the first place is that there are forerunner devices pulling down the Spirit of Fire. When the timer reaches 0, there is no chance for the Spirit of Fire to escape and inevitably crashes.

I found the review to be funny, but he didn't play the game. He didn't even look at the cinematic which explained everything quite easily. If you are unable to deduce the above from the cinematic you need to jump out of a fast moving vehicle to only be hit another vehicle or possibly a cow.

yeah ur right there. Sry my mind is somewhat wrapped around an exam i have tomorrow so I guess I wasn't looking at it completely. But hey i like the concept of the unlimited resources (well sort of) which I believe you wee kind of getting at, yet that game can be real hard...admit it

The Unskippable guys were hilarious!

4 straights was good too.

You know Yahtzee I thought you would like to play as a god, I mean that's just me

NOTE: you know this is the 5th time I have watch this and the un skippable today.
AND THAT ENDING STILL MAKES ME LAUGH SO HARD I LOVE IT. A screw you if you think other wise...that is all

halo sucks

Vanguard_Ex:
Does anyone know what Yahtzee says after he says 'they're always played by losers'?

He's says - "NO! End sentence! Begin anew!"

Ah right. Thank you :D

best ZP yet,
and speaking of twitching, inadequate dog-fuckers, here's George Carlin saying it back then and nobody trusted him enough to cause a white riot and reclaim the planet from the corporations.
