i knew he was talking about himself on there

Its a wonder he didn't mention how communistic it feels some time. "Use your hammer of the proletariat and smash the overlord's bourgeoisie housing!"

phoenixbeast:
Loved it...Totally agree with the last point...If its supposed to be like Guerrilla warfare, they totally messed that up...

What? You don't think that Guerrilla fighters rip off their shirts and sprint towards the enemy as soon as they see one, Rambo style in real life? It's all good, though: If you get hurt, just chill behind a wall for a few seconds and you'll be as good as new!

In the original Russian version, there's a mission where you have to escort Stalin to the Mars colony to lead the revolution after he returns to earth for a second time, Jesus style.

well im not reading through eight pages to find out if its already been disscussed but who got the Spiders from Mars reference in the little text after the credits?

I enjoyed it, but did anyone else feel it was a bit short? or perhaps it's just sleep deprivation sending me nuts :D

actually I think it is just the sleep deprivation. :)

I thought it was a bit short but maybe when your only positive reason to get outta bed ona wednesday is "OMFG NEW ZP TODAY YESSS!!" then all his new vid's seem a bit short lol

eitherway short or not loved it, love 'em all, Yahtzee will forever remain the king

Side note: Is is just me or does it seem you can go on any give ZP thread and theres always at lest 2 or 3 people getting banned/suspened/warnings?

I think it was mainly the last crack, with the chimpanzee warfare, it just made the end feel a bit abrupt :/ though I do agree, ZP is the highlight of my average Wednesday, and a 4-5 minute video is a bit, not sure how to put it, but you get what Im saying :) and yes, always the first 3 posts are along the lines of "first" and banned. though in fairness my post was just that primitive part of my brain wanting first page, but I tried to at least put something relevant :D

lol yeh it's natural instinct to want something on the first page...the common "rock star" gene that makes humans thrive for people to pay attention to what they have to say and when half of the people who read boards read the first few comments and then leave well it makes you want to be one of those "first few"
but yeh i understand to have quality he needs time but how awsome would it be if his revewis were daily? I know its almost impossible but still i'd be awsome.
and yeh all the people who say "first" get banned but half the ones i go on there are always like 3 or 4 people banned for flamming and being negative about yahtzee or insulting people. it's like there are a bunch of sparks and yahtzee's reveiws (intentionaly or not) seems to drop gasoline all over them lol

Yahtzee is definatly picking more on the Bowie Humour; the "neutral" joke in the last one with Bowie's face and the least bit concerning spiders from Mars :D Someone's discovering classic music :]

Oh yeah, and the review was pretty great as well - I felt the same about the first Red Faction :[

Akai Shizuku:
In the Red Faction games, do you happen to play on the side of socialist forces? That's what I've read...

You happen to play on the side of a "Red Faction" whose symbol is deliberately close to the old hammer and scythe and whose stated aim is to free themselves from the (imperialist) yoke of the (capitalist) Earth oppressors.
So it's not technically about socialism, but it's deliberately working off the modern pop culture understanding of socialist revolution, probably because players 'get it' a lot quicker than if you had a Green Faction. Sometimes I dislike the parallels and it feels eery when every single non-EDF Martian colonist is secretly a member of the Red Faction. I'm not even joking. If you take a car the driver will say something like "Hurry Mason, I'll hold the EDF off." And any civilian might draw a previously invisible gun from their backs if you trip the 'wanted level' of the game.
So it's not socialist but it uses socialist trappings to get people on the same page - and to be a bit edgy.

That's alright. I'm a communist, so it's all good to me.

Ouch ouch ouch RF1 was a good game despite the random corridors that went down hill fast

...like halo(H2/RF2 watered down for noobs and had lulzy weapons like poorly done dual wielding, H3/RF3 is just a crappy lulz fest that's more fun online where they seemed to have bothered to develop it more...).

Yahtzee your becoming more mediocre shill by the month!

I actually liked the first 2 red faction games. This one sucks though. It's a blatant rip off of the Saints Row games.

Another great Zero Punctuation :D
Back to being a dick in games that wants you to be a hero :) As for the plot it sounds like this game doesn't have much to offer Oo

the hap:

I've said it before and I'll say it again. You can't rip off your own games.

I wish someone had made Guerrilla warfare game. Crysis engine seems wasted without one :( If you combine the stealth and murder aspects of the first Riddick game(on it's first release) and then put that into the Crysis engine, I'd think that would be a satisfactory Guerrilla game. If it had a plot and you were a young counter-revolutionary/paramilitary/drug runner is South America somewhere, killing Federales with nothing more than cheap cigars and a tomohawk, I might even be impressed. But if you wore a red bandana it would be lame, because what kind of idiot intends stealth and dresses inappropriately. Oh wait, Far Cry 1.

Again, Guerrilla warfare is about quick, tactical strikes, such as ambushes and raids. Stealth is not a major aspect of this. RF Guerrilla IS a guerrilla warfare game. Look up the definition if you disagree.

Cool episode and btw where can i find the obama image on 3:19, its awesome.

Though I was hoping to find a hi-res version in here.

Exactly. It's just lazy.

I'll have Yahtzee know that Red Faction 1 was totally cool and if he's so stupid as to play an FPS on a console then he only got himself to blame for hating it. :p

PiCroft:
Call me a freak but I rather liked the first Red Faction.

Your not a freak. The original Red Faction games were great and much better than geurrilla.

Well, FPSes only suck on Playstations. Wait, everything sucks on those. Anyways, I just beat the main story and I rather liked it. Sure, I went homicidaly insane a few times

, but it was fun.

Ahhh vogel the guy I killed and teabagged.....nice.....

If you ask me Saints Row 2 is better then Gurrila........its just more fun..........also I returned this game back after I completed it because it was soo long......but fun while it lasted, the reson I dont like this game is because

1. Gets boring after completing the game.....
2. Its just destruction....it does not focus on anything else
3. Story was ok
4. Characters were boring.....
5. Multiplayer is bad......its like SR2 (The only part I didnt like about SR2 was the multiplayer)

Does anyone have/can anyone get a screenshot of Yahtzee in the wedding dress at 3:56? I'd like it, please...

press "print screen" on your keyboard and paste it into a graphics program of your choice.

Stabby Joe:
Now will people stop asking him to review it!?

Now I'm wondering what the next game in the ZP demand box will be?

As for the game itself, it is very fun, blowing up nearly everything in sight is a very good way to blow off steam. Sure its hard later but of course you also need challenge.

Also I don't get the complaints the world is bland... ITS MARS! It was like one ecosystem, maybe two if theories on it's water are true lol!

I'm not insulting your intelligence but you have no idea what mars may have been like. Nor do I or the games designers

May have been like? Sure is may have had life and it may have had varied landscapes at some point in the last billion years... But the game is set in the FUTURE and we have a good idea what it looks like NOW, which is pretty much like in the game but without the buildings and roads IE humans and in just over 100 years, terraforming its atmosphere is as far as we could only hope to get.

Props for sneaking a Ziggy Stardust reference in at the last line.

"less guerrilla and more chimpanzee"

Five minutes straight of laughing.

Red Faction Guerilla is awesome, but it lags so incredibly much on my shit computer. So I plan to get a ps3 and then the game.
And then make a lot of mayhem.

You might want to check the date before posting, you just bumped an old thread.

Well yeah. I just wanted to comment on this video since this game interests me. Even though its an old thread.

I like in his review how he complains that you cant blow up enough stuff in the first game then complains that you can too easily do it in this game. Whats to expect from a reviewer that says they hate the game before they even try it. I love the show an all but I dont take game buying tips from him lol

spiders from mars. nice bowie reference. :)

Picked this game up on the cheap.
Been playing it pretty heavily. Much more fun than boring ass GTA.

I love how you go blow up someone's building and suddenly a bunch of civies pull out guns and join in the fight. Suddenly there's a large scale battle and buildings are getting smashed and it's great fun.

Just been replaying this game recently, and:

RF: Guerrilla > Just Cause 2

Seriously, there's a lot more interesting stuff to do in this game. JC2 has an awesome map and a grappling hook, but after it's pretty much just finding crates and blowing up buildings. At least Guerrilla got that last part down.

Also, it's a lot more fun to play second time round, as you know how things are going to play out more, allowing more tactics.

^^FACTS

Recently played this one, even wrote a review about it, bit thats beside the point. i agree that the physics are insane with whole building holding on a shoestring an refusing to collapse even after you repeatedly beat that shoestring with your norse might.
what i found as a workable strategy is get 4 or so guerillas let them deal with EDF and then just ignore everything and go on destroying your building. worked for the whole game really.
