I'm probably gonna be the first in about a bajillionth comment requests but...when are you getting round to heavy rain?Just curious.AND NO REPLY TELLING ME THAT I'M A HEAVY RAIN FANBOY.

Your a Heavy Rain fanboy. Just had to say it.

Onyx Oblivion:

Oh...yeah. Let them rise out of MEDIOCRE FPS LAND!

Oh, come on. How can you say such a thing? Did you even play the game? I haven't played the new AvP, but the original AvP for the PC is awesome. I signed up to Steam only to be able to play it again.
The marine campaign is nerve-rattling. I actually had to stop playing it the first few times, because it would freak me out too much. The Alien is all about speed and quick kills whereas the Predator campaign is about stealth and snipering. I'm hard pressed to remember a FPS that was as interesting, atmospheric and that had as much variety as AvP.
But I guess it also depends on your expectations. AvP is not a "typical" shooter and it may be lacking a bit in the feel and mechanics, but it delivers in alot of different areas.

There both aliens.... lol

great as always.

Humans are tasty.... yum yum

Except you couldn't have possibly watched the whole thing...jesus christ you're thick.

From someone who actually watched the whole thing, this is the best Yahtzee's done in a long time. And fucking hilarious too.

Really? I felt that he was talking considerably slower in this video but that could be just me :S It felt weird to me because the jokes felt like they were taking longer than usual to be gotten to.

Fantastic review. Found myself agreeing with basically everything he said.
I personally disliked the game quite a bit, apart from the Alien missions however.

Solid as usual Yahtzee. As a fan of the franchises though I have no doubt I'll eventually buy it. Probably not at full price though.

Great review. The criticisms were funny, legit, and liked the end analysis. Felt like the "oldschool" Yahtzeeh for lack of a better term.

Great Review

Sylocat:
Am I the only one who doesn't want Yahtzee to review Heavy Rain? It's a brilliant game, but the gameplay definitely doesn't seem like his cup of tea.

I was thinking this myself. Why ask him to review a game that's all quick time events when you KNOW he and quick time events don't talk anymore?

I know you mean well, guys, but some relationships just weren't meant to be. Stop trying to get them back together. Just let QTE and Yahtzee get on with their lives.

This review lacked something :( Can't say what YET, but I might come up with it during the day.

But creative as always.

I believe the proper response is YOU ARE A HEAVY RAIN FANBOY!

But I have no need for the Caps Lock. If you yell, people can safely ignore you. If you whisper, people want to listen.

I haven't even played the game (except for the demo)I just wondered that was all.Story is very important to yatzhee so I just wanted to know what the internets most harsh critic thought of the story of heavy rain.

God damn it, why can't there be a worldwide announcement that tells everyone exactly what colour sarcasm/irony is? Then we could all just use that as the font colour when we're being sarcastic/ironic.

This made me hungry for a chip sandwich.

What is a chip sandwich?

fried potato strips between 2 slices of bread.

hmm...sounds interesting, tho I'm not sure I'd like it (how are the potato strips prepared?)
haha but I def want some fish and chips...yummm so hungry

wait...ahem

I've never really been well-versed with Aliens and Predators and Aliens versus Predators...

need to go watch Predator now ><

If only I could use a special sarcasm font color in real life, that would make social encounters a lot less awkward on my part...

Campaigns = rubbish, multiplayer = epic.

Batman losing his moral compass and tried to french kiss an angle grinder. LMAO.

AvP ceased to be interesting a long time ago.

Funny the game he described at the end as "Predator campaign, 6 hours longer, with titan combat from a third person perspective, and with AI that can tie it's fucking shoelaces" is pretty much the description of Predator: Concrete Jungle which came out for PS2 and XBOX (yes the first one) back in 05. It wasn't the best game but if you are a fan of predator it was pretty good.

Fortunately, You don't have to. You can alter the tone of your voice to imply sarcasm that would be picked up by all but the thickest of humanoids.

Wait, did this quote tree just come full circle?

Alien Vs Predator is just a rough concept. I mean, it isn't bad for survival horror gameplay as a human, but the aliens spend nearly the entire time being the threat and very rarely does the game surprise you with something you didn't see in the movies, while the rest of the time established happenings from the series are treated like they're brand new.

But ranting about the game itself aside, the review was pretty solid. Pointed out essentially all the problems with the series. Makes me wonder why some circles were hyping the game so much, aside from the fanboys of course.

I honestly don't see why people can't decide by themselves whether or not to buy a game (this, or any other) everyone is different and been a critic Yahtzee is merely here to add his own suggestion and personal opinion, as well as entertainment.
Buy the game or not just quit asking him to give out scores or the ol' "buy tis shit nao or you suck" because time and again he's made it evidently clear that it's not for him to decide such a controversial subject when it comes to personal entertainment.
Now go have a wank you fanboys.

rockoffanddie:
great video, but was anyone else expecting heavy rain, or was it just me?

I think Yahtzee's still in denial about its existence since he can't believe the universe has taken his "nothing-but-quicktime"-based game idea seriously.

Usually it either takes a while for the game to come out where he lives/ it doesn't come out at all where he lives.. Or he is just playing through it still, you silly fanboy you!!!!

Sorry had too.. :3

Meh, this wasn't as good as the last few episodes.
The Dante's Inferno review was so freaking funny...

TraumaHound:

Daystar Clarion:
Dribbles and Joey Crab-face. Hilarious.

Yeah, I'm gonna be thinking this when I'm playing AvP. :D

The one thing I suspected would suffer was the storyline(s) as it's tough enough in the videogame world to get a good story. AvP needs 3, so it would stand to suspect each would be roughly 1/3 the quality of a full-game's story.

*shrug* I'm still gonna play it, though. Can't wait to watch Dribbles bite the heads off of unsuspecting Marines. :)

As Blizzard shows with Starcraft it is possible to pull off three strong stories as it does with the Protoss, Zerg, and Terrans. In a kind of weird way Starcraft is akin to a AvP set up though the Protoss aren't as hunt happy as the Predator and the Zerg make up for the fact their troops go down so fast by making them by the train load. The Terrans have a little civil war early on in the series and then find other things to shoot at--namely the Protoss and Zerg.

I think Zero mpunctuation is going downhill. It seems bland nowa'days and can't pinpoint exactly why.

I find myself wanting to encourage Yahtzee to review Final Fantasy XIII when/if he can, mainly because I know how much he hates JRPGs and I know that the primary draw of Zero Punctuation is watching him suffer.

Is anyone else possibly behind me on this?

The video hasn't changed my opinions of AvP. After playing the demo I was pretty sure that if I ever did get it, it would be after favourable reviews from my friends who have bought it and if there were enough of us to form a sizeable squad in MP and if it was less than 25. I have better games to play at the moment...and I've just got FF13, so that's going to last a few months anyway.

Oh and for those wondering, Yahtzee has said on his Twitter that he'll be doing Heavy Rain next week.

Keepitclean:

Perhaps you are getting too accustomed to his "face".

This video in particular was hard to tell if he liked it or not. So I guess it's a rant then?

Cheap shot taking on a game that's already crap..? Meh.

*sigh* The original Alien is still the best. The movie, I mean. When it was scientists, not soldiers, the franchise was at its peak.

Twas a great game imo. I mean, the campaigns were nothing like the first 2 games, and the controls were a bit confusing at first... but I do love the predator trophey kills =D

Hmm maybe I should get Arkham Asylem, see what thats like.

I wouldn't declare it bad without playing it. I got AvP Classic 2000 off of Steam.
