TheFace:

I'm sure if there was an optional 20 minute install for 360 games a lot of you would do it to cut down on in-game loading. I know I would.

You mean like the ability to copy the entire game to your hard drive and play it from there? Like, you know, you can do on the Xbox.

And doesn't take 20 minutes.

(and coca cola is better than pepsi, as long as it's made with real sugar, not that corn syrup shite)

He seemed to be much nicer on this game than he is on others for some reason... hmmm

Another great review, also, I to hate Pepsi .

Well I can't say it was good but I can say that

LOADING.......

I think I can add another video onto my list of favorites. Best one since Halo Wars, I'd say!

John Sterling, if your reading this, then please stick you head in a beehive!

Don't be so hard on it, Yahtzee.
All Capcom wanted was a Pepsi!
And you wouldn't give it to them!
All Capcom wanted was a Pepsi! Just one Pepsi!
And you wouldn't give it to them! Just a Pepsi!

Okay Yahtzee, by that same token, I can be petty too. And I say if you're judging a game by something as fucking stupid as Pepsi ads, then I'm judging you by your bullshit complaints about bad Wii controls in good Wii games. Yes I'm still not over the control complaints in the MadWorld review. Give me another week and I will be.

Oh my God... someone didn't take Duke Nukem Forever seriously did they? Pick your nose button? Walk by moving the controller up and down and left and right?

*sigh*

Aaaanyway, back to the review. Aren't certain boss encounters that require the latch on in certain places and certain times in a cinematic manner technically *gulp* quick time events?

No! They're on drugs!

I thought Yahtzee was very forgiving on this one. Any game that punishes exploration with a horrible radioactive death is the lowest of the low in a long line of shitty linear games. Arbitrary weapon or ability upgrades at some later point always annoy me greatly. If you were a great hero of the past why hold them off? Was the bionic commando thinking of other things while in prison? Did he not fondly remember the days of enemy slapping? Why not present the range of goodies like you're batman heading off to a mission, hype it up at the start, oh look at all you can do, and then let you loose.

I can understand Yaytzee's dislike of Pepsi and product placement. Throwing things like that in are evidence they were not most interested in making a great game, slight evidence of prostitution and time spent crawling to satisfy a company so they can briefly open the wallet of cash to improve their miserable lives.

Er...trust me, the MadWorld review pissed me off, too, but he was serious then. I'm pretty sure he was just using Pepsi endorsements as a tongue-in-cheek way of getting off the fence (kinda like the "small quicktime event" in Gears of War 2).

Looks like I chose the wrong week to a drink Pepsi and watch Zero Punctuation together...

Let's see...ripping crappy games is fun, because fan boys cry when you rip halo and guitar hero...John Sterling I have no comment other than 'you dummy', and Coke tastes like what your parents room used to smell like the morning after that night when they were making those funny noises that kept you up....('disgusting' for those of you focused more on content than meaning)
Here's the kicker tho. Who says that Ben actually drinks Coke?
meahdun rilly geevash it d'oh.

btw, awsomest post evr: this guy.

I was hoping for inFamous, but this is good too.

Perhaps it isn't product placement as much as it is a premonition. In the future, there is only Pepsi and Capcom.

OMG Yahtzee Pepsi is an abomination!!!! I'm glad there are folks out there that feel the same way!!

This will be a one time post. I wrote the email, and so everyone knows is was complete sarcasm. I would have thought that was clear, but guess none of you get real sarcasm online unless you put a gay little lol with it. I still think it was pretty sweet that you people think someone could watch that review and seriously think that game was real.

I had to look up what the twist was after watching this review. I wish I hadn't. Not because I've spoiled the game for myself, but because it was so painfully stupid that I had to read it from three different sources before I finally believed it. Now my brain hurts because of a game I didn't play and never wanted to.

To all of you who are making fun of the guy who wrote that email, need I remind you what half of the posts in the Duke Nukem Forever thread were? "I didn't realize he was joking until -insert joke from the video-." and "Did he seriously play the game?" Just read that thread if you don't believe me. I'd love to go through and compile a list of everyone who admitted to not catching on to the joke last week but are laughing at this Sterling guy this week.

My friend has a dog named Pepsi, a friendly sheltie that will carry your bag for you.

Its not that I didn't get it, I was just being a sarcastic smart ass. I think he understood that from the email. Sadly none of you seem to get it, which makes me wonder why you even watch his reviews since they are completely full of sarcasm

Angrier than usual.

If I ever have the chance I would like to know just how effective in game ads really are. I mean do people really buy something just becuase they saw an ad for it somewhere? Or is it merely a mindshare thing and letting the public know you still exist?

All i know is that I made a point to shoot every ad out of spite.

and hookers don't wear armor unless their at E3

that made me laugh

10 great
