Hah, ya'll are so thick. Joke has been stated repeatedly. He's actually punctuating. If he did what everyone EXPECTED for an april fools joke (ie give a terrible game a good review) it wouldn't really be a surprise now would it? I for one say, nice job yahtzee.

Withard:
Putting it in game dogs would be like an in joke since...wait a sec theres a series called game dogs?!?!

Problem with game dogs is its doing "that" humour path. Like VG Cats only animated.

Except VGcats is actually funny. "Gamer Dogs" just looks like a rip off of a comedic video game cartoon for fur fags.

For all those saying, I don't get it. Trust me, you got it. The joke just wasn't funny.

Leave it to Yahtzee to make an April Fools joke that ISN'T FUNNY!

He was talking in a slow paced voice with no swearing. It sounded like a villain from Harry Potter for some reason, but yeah. It would've been a bit funnier, I'm sure, if you were watching game dogs and that just kinda jumped out there. But I don't watch Gamedogs, so I didn't even know about it. I'm glad they put it out where we all can see it, that's great :D

The video was hidden in the middle of an episode of Game Dogs...so the amount of users who may have seen it is somewhat hindered already.

Secondly, the video could be seen as a stark contrast to everything he's ever done.

But most importantly,

HE IS SCREWING WITH OUR HEADS!

He wants to see what we all make of it, and already this topic is seven pages long and full of thoughts and opinions on what the joke is. That is the true joke, perhaps?

Anybody else strangely aroused by this?

A lot of people didn't find this Clip hidden in some of the other Escapist Videos, which kinda means there are some who don't watch the other vids.

I watched this placed in the middle of Game Dogs, which was hysterical given the timing where he just cuts the episode and reads some annoying novel.

Formica Archonis:
LOL! Excellent review as always, Yahtzee. That game really deserved it, I hated it too!

... what? I thought that's what you had to do to make it into the first few pages of a ZP thread.

zing... I'm glad someone else noticed

Additionally, was it wrong that I was aroused by this video [yes], or was that the intention [probably not]?

That was quite a bit of punctuation.

So I read about three pages to see if anyone would say this, but my god, American sense of humour fail. Good English comedy is a little more subtle, but that was still kinda obvious ;)

GunStunt567:
(chuckles) Its amusing how you guys dont get how he's fucking with us.

He read an extract from the "Ode To Melancholy", a distinctly depressing choice on the assumption that his loyal yet brainless fanbase would all watch it with bated breath waiting for some Yahtzee brand venomous hilarity on April Fools.

You got us good, Yahtzee, you twanker

By the way, it's 'Ode On Melancholy', maybe next time you can stop sucking up long enough to get your facts right.

rudolphna:

There's nothing punctuationless about Zero Punctuation in the first place. That would be incomprehensible. It's just fast-paced.

Irony. Irony is all there is to it. Now stop your ludicrous speculation and sleep peacefully in the knowledge that you are all inferior beings in comparison to me.

So I guess it is true, Americans don't understand irony.

I think his previous April Fools joke was better...lol duke nukem forever

Gawd, i've never heard him speaking sooo sssllloooowwwwwwllllyyyy beeeeefffffffffoooooooooorrrrrrre

It's just supposed to be a little absurd, and entirely underwhelming in comparison to his other videos. This is intentional. April Fools doesn't mean "funny joke", it just means something strange or peculiar to make you feel strange or confused, i.e. a false news report, or the opposite of what Yahtzee usually does.

I thought it was great.

The rest of you need to have some chocolate or something and lighten the fuck up.

Where was it hidden? i had no idea :o

duchaked:
wait what? where was this hidden? haha

Part-way through an episode of Game Dogs

Those clever bastards! They hid it in the one place they knew we wouldn't look!

Did it only happen on the 1st of april, no other days? I watched GameDogs 2nd of april...

Now that was the most beautiful April fool joke I have ever seen!

I liked it. It was quite unexpected, (especially during Game Dogs). First I was shocked that Yahtzee was there, then that he was reading SLOW, and then slowly realizing that he was reading erotica. It was fun :D

So cool! Has anyone typed it into Google to say what it's from? Not a recent game, I suppose. loool
Edit: Ode On Melancholy, got it.

What the hell......................................................................................................

Also, Yahtzee, why would you hide it in an episode of game dogs? The announcement ad for it sucked so bad, I refuse to watch the show. Why would you risk association with that show?

I think so, no one seems to have found that clip after April 1. And why doesn't anybody watch Game Dogs? Its a fairly decent show.

Huh??? what the hell was that?

???

That would probably explain why no one found it.


I don't care if I'm a few days late and you've already been well-quoted because, damn it, I laughed.

I still don't get it.

Ok, so the joke is either that Yahtzee is reading a book and talking slowly and pausing, a inside joke from a episdoe of game dogs which I don't watch, or it's both. What is it?

um wtf, erotic novel read by yahtzee

I was expecting that to be a screamer.

I kinda just sat there wondering what was going on.

He was talking slowly...
Ya know... with punctuation?
anyone notice that?

I THINK THE POINT IS THAT HE'S SPEAKING REALLY SLOW, WHEREAS HE NORMALLY SPEAKS REALLY FAST.
Might just be me though.

I was amused, good old British humour

That was incredibly terrifying, actually.
