Yahtzee reviews House Flipper and FAR: Lone Sails

Watch Video

Now I want steaks.

I also almost wanted House Flipper, but I still have the ability to play Skyrim.

Oh for fucks sake Yahtz, just review Halo already and talk about how it has the ire of suck, and yet single-handedly sold a console with several million copies. We Halo fans might actually have some nostalgia to keep us from the noose with what 343 did to the franchise, and I'm not looking forward to no.6.

Fun Fact: Combat evolved was tacked on to the game by Microsoft because, "Halo, didn't sound enough like a shooter".

Yay! The comment section works again!
House Flipper sounds strangely addicting, and the second one sounds pretentious.

There has been another Halo game recently? I didn't know that.

I thought he'd review Detroit: Become Human this week. It came out recently, and is still a Big title, for lack of a proper term.

Judging by Yahtzee's comments, could it be that the Steam Popular New Releases is actually working as a curator for interesting new releases? I mean he didn't hate or dismiss the titles, he just had some creative suggestions for improvements.

On the other hand he also said something about "of the titles this was the one I kept coming back to", meaning he probably tried some other titles and these were the ones he had the most to say about.

Its been a long time since I hadn't heard of the game reviewed by ZP! Woohoo!

"Thank you for your assessment, Yahtzee, now please supply an explanation and apology for reviewing House Motherfucking Flipper!"

I love that Yahtzee is envisioning his own audience response, now. Sincerely. That was hilarious.

Well, I do love how he can intertwine two reviews and make it both funny and seamless (in a cynical hodgepodge manner).

But yah, Summer...

I can't imagine what kind of person would actually want to play a game called "House Flipper."

I wish I'd seen this before buying Wizard of Legend. Or maybe done more research.

I was expecting a sort of magical brawler-beat 'em up. What I got was a suuuper punishingly hard twitch reflex roguelite. :s It's not bad, it's just not at all what I wanted or was expecting. I sympathize with Yatzee throwing it in the bin in the episode.

Also, I bang on about it all the time, but I'm still surprised he skipped the second Styx game. It's a fantastic stealth game. :s

Maybe they thought it was a game about The Hulk.

Yahtzee's taste in games continues to baffle me. I'll take an indie-itis game that Yahtzee hates like Far: Lone Bollocks over shithouse "hardcore" RPGs that he enjoys like Dark Souls (which the experience of playing is the equivalent of having my bollocks ripped off) anyday.

There are (presumably) people who play "Bus Driving Simulator", which is a real game I can buy on steam. For reasons.

You know, as opposed to going out and riding a real bus for less money and actually going somewhere.

Please, tell me where I can go out and pay money to drive a real bus.

Well now I can finally understand House Flipper. Can't say I feel more inclined to buy it though...

Hopefully the AAA market holds off releases a bit longer so we can get a review of that Raft game that just came out.

We got you sorted, sir!

If you?re running that low on games to write about so soon, maybe you try at looking some of the 2018 releases from these last six months that you completely skipped? Just an idea.

/me offers Detroit Become Human on a scarficial alter.

He could always do composite reviews on series he's played more or less through if he's bored. Kinda like Honest Game Trailers will occasionally just do a video on a series instead of a game.

It does really feel like Yathzee is getting tired of this job and he's doing it for the paycheck at this point. I'm trying to remember the last time it felt like he was really into any of his reviews.

Both of those sound good. Thank you.

It's the joys of handyman work without the stench and back pain. The feel of knowing how it feels to be the ones fleecing homeowners with hardware installation when millenials are struggling to even make rent in a basement thanks to the condo market flooded with foreign buyers who never live there. It is that sweet joy in being able to buy your own house and actually moving in and doing things your way.

Also the same guys who made Car Mechanic Simulator as well. The Poles haven't been gobbled up by soulless devs and have the luxury of an industry with robust game dev engines that lets them go the full gamut of game ideas and none of the responsibility of dealing with a pitiless executive board.

Weird how we weren't able to comment on the last two ZP videos.

I think Yahtzee should catch on some games from previous years he hasn't touched yet like Rainbow Six Siege and COD WW2.

I love Wizard of Legend. I guess this means no episode for it though lol.

So $15 for no challenge "gameplay" in a 3 hours long "game" is your cup of tea? Paint drying simulator, I have one more victim for you.
