My god this game was FRUSTRATING! I died at least 15 times trying to realise what to bloody do about the cop. And playing that girl... jesus couldn't do that in one go.

Wow, never knew an IQ level could drop this low.

I disagree. Clearly, you need to be a genius to realize how stupid other people with different skin colors are by comparison.

Hmmm...You might be on to something.

So racism is your argument. Nice one mate.

How is it racist? It's the common denominator.

That does not make it not racist. Instead of challenging what was said or giving your reasons why you choose to disagree you instead made a pathetic and snide comment. It doesn't impress anyone.

It impressed me quite alot

Never heard about the game, but good review. I cracked up at the part with the leper saying, "Where's the point?" LOL, you make me look forward to Wednesdays.

"-Full of that Japanese style horror you hold in such high esteem, Watashi Wa Baka Da, etc etc"

LOL. At the risk of sounding like a loser. I do enjoy Japanese Horror to American Horror which seems to only consist of gore and jumping out of closets. So watashi wa baka da? Yes I suppose I AM an idiot.

Thank you for being only the second person on this thread to actually put forward valid arguments against me instead of flaming me. However I do resent your generalization which lumps me with leetspeakers and halo fanboys.

By "games everyone knows", one would assume you're referring to something highly mainstream, like Halo. It's entirely possible you agree with Yahtzee that Halo's generally shit, but a criticism of more than one line would have cleared that up immensely. While brevity is the soul of wit, being too brief can lean you towards the dreaded mire of leetspeak, which links me into saying that I'm aware you're not a leetspeaker the way littlerudi08043 is. I did, however, correct your spelling in spacing in the quote above. ;-)

While not going for the sympathy vote I would like to point out that I am dyslexic.

*Sigh* When will he learn? Its not funny unless its major games that everyone knows.

Have you ever considered the possibility that he is "actually reviewing" the games he is playing and not just trying to be funny? The word "review" is in the name of his episodes for a reason. I actually find him to be a better reviewer then many of the big reviewers like IGN or gamespot because he does not call every game made by rockstar the "next big leap" simply because it's made by rockstar. I would take Yahtzee's review over the IGN and gamespot reviews any day of the week (well almost).

Do you do anything but bitch? I swear you were something like the third comment last week saying it was bad.

I don't see why everyone has a panic-attack as soon as he reviews a game that isn't well known by everyone. Do none of Yahtzee's fans have imaginations?

Oh wait, Spyalt you have already answered that for me.

Yes I was. I resent that, I used to be a Yahtzee fan but saw the light and changed.

If you don't like Yahtzee, then why are you even here? Why are you still posting and arguing in this thread?

Just become I am no longer a raving fanboy does not mean I dislike Yahtzee. Don't be so presumptous in future.

Spyalt you are a butthurt, Weeaboo faggot. Quit being an internet tough guy, no one takes your opinions seriously so shut the fuck up. now GTFO my yahtzee board!

Your Yahtzee board? Pah You have only one post mate and the mods will ban you for it shortly anyway.

you are still a butthurt little cry baby, you're done, be gone with you and take your stupid comments with you faggot.

Actually I'm not little I'm over 6 foot tall. *waits for the bannhammer*

Good combination. Immature and pathetic, your family must be so proud.

Strangely enough the commentary about wasted but imaginative mechanics, totalitarian gameplay, utter contempt for characters, and eye gougingly frustrating children resonates in some respect with every japanese designed game I've played this console generation.

Maybe that's just terrible luck on my part but the thoroughness of the crap leads me to believe that good game design in Japan suffered a terribly excrucating death and from this point on the country be quarentined from the rest of the world lest we suffer another SSBB or Lost Odyssey.

Humor, like taste in video games, is subjective. Just because you find the deconstruction of an unknown game to be unamusing because it isn't Halo or something doesn't mean someone else can't see the humor in it. Given that he's a reasonably successful presence and has done so at least partially through comedy, as evidenced by his awards, it seems to me that he would have a better idea than what is generally funny or what is not than either his guttersniping critics or his fanboys, both of whom are likely held in equal contempt. His opinions on fans are well-known, and I think that, like you, he'd appreciate a well-reasoned counter-argument more than a critic saying, in essence, "YOUR NOT FUNNY STFU." Then again, success in and of itself might not be the best barometer. George Lucas is relatively successful, and his recent success was due to him sodomizing his franchises.

Going by popularity and/or visibility, Yahtzee should review Naruto Shippuden Ultimate Ninja Fanboy Fapping Package 4 next.

Thankyou for being only the second person on this thread to actually put foward valid arguments against me instead of flaming me. However I do resent your generalization which lumps me with leetspeakers and halo fanboys.

to be frank, you kind of brought that on yourself. if there were more detail on yourself in your post than one subjective opinion and a rhetorical question, we might not see you as a well-rounded gamer with a taste in niche genres.

and in case you wanted to know, i'm not a gamer; i'm a musician who enjoys yahtzee's reviews more for his personality and his take on the world (and himself) than the games, so regardless of how big or how requested the game, i can find some kind of humour in his reviews. so your assumption of who watches these videos and why has just been proven, to an extent, false (and i quote: "Its not funny unless its major games that everyone knows."). personally, i think if you take his personal opinion 100% of the time, or just base everything you play solely on his (or anyone's) word without trying it yourself, then you're looking in the wrong place for information. look how many trolls have left angry posts in all caps screaming about how great the game is. everyone's allowed their opinions, and anyone who doesn't understand "personal taste" is missing the point.

plus this is a good forum. it's got some yahoos, and some trolls, and definitely some misinterpreted posts, but it's a well-knit community for an internet message board

"wotawshi woh bakkah guyjin"

ouch, I cringed a little at the pronunciation there, which I am sure was the point, but still ouch. Unhappily takes me back to the Far Cry 2 review.

Maybe accents and other languages (aside from German, which you seem okay with) are better left to their natives.

Curse you Yahztee for making me google anencephalic. That stuff's gonna give you m******f****ing nightmares...

"oh its no good because ive never heard of the game!"
That is retarded. Just because you havent heard of the game doesnt mean you cant enjoy the review!

oh thank god the righteous Ojay has given his review of a review. rrriiiggghhhttt

And why is that?

i must admit, for a game reviewer who normally makes milk and other things shoot out of my nose at a velocity only steel armoured dinosaurs could survive...that was about as funny as watching mary poppins on dope paint a uniform fence.

If I didn't think it to be above Yahtzee's character to do such a thing (Har har), I would hazard a guess that "Spyalt" is a Yahtzee alt sent here to terrorize and humiliate his fans while at the same time trolling for praise to soothe his mild-mannered-alter-(mega)-ego . I can imagine him enjoying that.

Except there is a bit too much anger there I guess to be Yahtzee... oh well. Yahtzee on drugs?

I'm glad there wasn't a great deal of venom hurled at the sightjacking concept. Any time a designer takes a step out of the box like that, it's good for gaming as a whole (even if the execution of the idea ends up being a useless feature).

Care to prove that I'm biased towards them? No thought not, try harder next time.

Your av is from a Japanese game. Given that neither I nor he know you personally, all we have to go on is how you represent yourself on The Escapist. And you have chosen to represent yourself with something Japanese. Hence, logically, you are fond of them and thus have some bias. QED

Also, why is everyone being so retarded? "You has japanese avatar, you have a dumb nick, you like stuff i don't like, so i will insult your comments" Yahtzee's videos do gather plenty of angry sex-less fanboys and what not, but this is going way over the top.

i got confuse at the end, so did yathzeee liked this game or not? x_X i liked that game

It was an alright review though I do agree with the "this works/no it doesn't!" part, some games have absolutely BS ways to beat the game even though you know your method would work too

OH MY GOD. He used the -same- exact (airsoft) shotgun I did in one of my recent stick figure comics... He googled "shotgun" just like I did!

Hello Spyalt!

No I dont really have a good idea on why your posting in these forums, but Im going to take a good guess (seeing as this is my first post ;D).

While your entitled to your opinion on what you thought Yahtzee's review was like (however biased it might be), you are very negligent towards other peoples comments on this board, especially if they challenge you on your unfounded and clearly confusing remarks. Futhermore, it seems you havent quite grasped the concept on these, and have just replied back with no hint of wit and in a childlike matter which is the equivalent of "Im right, you wrong so nah".

The fact you cant even reply to some of the more intellectual remarks on your "oh so, top notch wit", shows you have no real purpose and havent even grasped the language and intellect in order to form a response to them.

Im guessing your going through a tough point in your life at the moment, but you need another outlet apart from taking it out on people in this forum, (or any forum for that matter). I cannot assume to know what your like in real life but from judging from your post you seem to not be a very nice person and possibly lacking in decent proper social skills. Just face it, your wrong, not everyone has the same tastes but one thing is true though, the only people that deserve to be flamed are people that flame others just for having an opinion.

Peace

the whole point of reviewing an older game is to inform about an older diamond, reviewing an old bad game is pointless

the review was pretty good, the humour was there though it was not as good as some other reviews he has done but all in all I liked it.

Pallindromemordnillap:
Annoying escort quests...the bane of anyone's life

Indeed. And sucky AI makes it worse. Like when the person you're supposed to escort is running ahead, then screaming complaining that someone should've told him about the gigantic monster that almost killed him.

I think he was suggesting that their criticisms are invalid because they are (presumably) otaku-esques who will fiercely defend anything Japanese-made to the death.

Not really racist... generalization, definitely.

Really? So my opinion is invalid because I chose a picture at random from my hard drive to represent myself on an online forum? What does that say about you being a bit to eager to discredit what the other side has to say?

While I may have quick-fired my original post off without coming up with supporting reasons as to what I was saying or really even what I was aiming at (for this, I apologize) I will clarify this now.

I thought the review in and of itself was godawful, mostly because it didn't seem like the Yahtzee I come here every Wednesday to in order to laugh at another one of his videos. The game overall seemed rather stupid, I'm not a huge fan of the whole 'exactly ONE solution to problem x', so I would probably not have enjoyed this game myself. But seeing as how I lack a PS3, I guess that problem is null anyway.

Otaku though, really? I would shoot myself before becoming anything remotely Otakuish.
