Interesting. The song isn't at the end anymore.

Incidentally, after listening to it again (the song, I mean; it's still over at Rebecca Mayes's section), I think it was...okay. The biggest problem with it, to me, is that it lacks polish. Some retakes, maybe a little rewriting, and better background music would've really helped it out.

JaredXE:
Another bloody Kid Icarus too. Can't forget that, Yahtzee.

Another bloody [insert title] was meant to all the games you know will be announced at every E3. Kid Icarus has been absent since 1991 and it's only the third game in the series so it was a small surprise.

hmm i was so sure he would at least mention Portal 2 (super hyped for that game) and deus ex

My god... I actually agreed with
Every.
Single.
Thing.
he said in this rundown. I mean, usually I'll have one or two minor disagreements with Yatzee's reviews; his extremist opinions make sure of that. This time, though, he took every word out of my mouth, right down to his statement about why the movie industry is on a 3-D bender lately. I'm impressed.

no Portal 2 in this episode (that would be to eazy)

Motion controles would be perfect for Heavy Rain. You'd wave your arms to shout "Jason!".

This was a great run down of all the big stuff announced at E3(wish he talked about AC:Brotherhood though) but damn he talks FAST! I know he always talks fast but it sounded like he was talking even faster to get everything in, i had to rewind a few time just to catch some of the jokes.

As always fantastic make me laugh ma head

Why the hell do the first few posts get suspended on his videos, whether they deserve it or not???

Finally someone said what every one is think (or at least what i was thinking) motion controls are shit. They are pointless and work when they want to, which is never. 3d isn't looking to good 2 me either.

I know people who are very excited about E3 and the new Nintendo games coming out, but I am not one of them. I can get why a new twist on the familiar might be fun, but personally I'm sick of sequels. Give me a franchise like God of War that stops with three excellent games, Ratchet and Clank which has a compelling arc and cool new weapons for every game, or Final Fantasy (except for XIII) which reinvents itself. I have no interest in playing sequel after sequel after reboot after sequel.

Very well said, Yahtzee. But no mention of Portal2. I'm most excited about that game.

as soon as he started to whine about motion-facepalming-tv-arm-frailing i couldn't stop laughing!
cause he does have a point - i took me years to stop waving the controller around in an attempt to make the game character do my actions on screen, and then suddenly BAM motion control comes out and i'm like "couldn't you have brought that out, like 15 years ago!!!" when me looking like i'm having a seizer didn't make people look at me funny! - when i wanna play a game, i wanna be comfortable not waving my arms around like i've just spotted a big slimy spider crawling up it to get at my face. and when you play a game, you don't want to get exhausted by it! because you'd have more important things to concern yourself with (which way your ment to go/paying attention to what characters are saying incase it holds clues/do your cheats work propley/balancing a guide on yer knees/stuffing yer face/randomly killing innocent civilians if the most brutal way the game will allow) the if your arm muscles are going cramp painfully from too much jiggling about like an idiot.

blah blah, not enough women, how dare you knock her down. Change your opinion, buddy.

I never said anything bad about Susan Arendt, and I respect people regardless of gender. It's 100% about her bad music.

Change this, k? take your own advice and fuck off. You like Musey? listen to her. We don't want her here.

Lord_Seth:

Hooraay!

My theory of the lack of mention for Portal 2: He's scared. He's found what could be the best game ever for him, and a bad sequel would ruin all that.

That said, OMG, Portal 2's coming out! Yes!

Jackpot:

Nathaniel Formtwister:
Funny, I don't recall ever mentioning Bach or Lady Gaga in what I thought about Rebecca Mayes. Seems like an odd thing to say, considering Mayes is definately a considerable improvement over Gaga (You cannot defend Gaga's "originality" when compared to the only musical gaming critic on the web) and Bach is dead, which puts strain on his current playing abilities some what.

Is it just me who thinks it hypocritical for people to complain that there are not enough female gamers or original webshows on the internet, then when a female game critic who criticises games through the medium of music appears, you find fault in that too.

How about you reconsider your own opinion instead of changing my own?

P.S The style is more "Alternative" than pop as she doesn't have a fixed style other than an acoustic guitar is played a lot, which isn't a pop instrument.

I never said anything bad about Susan Arendt, and I respect people regardless of gender. It's 100% about her bad music.

Change this, k? take your own advice and f*** off. You like Musey? listen to her. We don't want her here.

...Are you complaining about the wrong person? Who the hell is Susan Arendt and what the hell is her relation to either of our complaints? I already get the whole "Don't like Mayes" angle already and fine, they've taken it off the end now which is probably a good idea, as I was depressed when I found out that it wasn't going to be an 8 minute extravaganza.

What I don't like it when someone is complaining because they themselves cannot either read someone else's argument or just read full stop. Go back to under your bridge, troll.

Am I the only one who didn't notice the new song at all? Or maybe it was changed since this is the first I've seen the new vid. [shrugs]

Anyway, I agree with most others about the whole motion controller thing. I'm beginning to think that it's a response to get people moving more and stop turning people into stereotypical gamers (you know, the ones who are overweight if not straight up obese with really bad acne and have really weird voice tones and/or speech patterns).

Just a theory though.

Well lets hope that the Motion Control is a fad and just kinda...leaves...now.

Love the puberty analogy. I might save that one for later use.

is there nothing that can please yahtzee other then silent hill 2?

Sorry, but sometimes motion controls work. I remember when I first started playing Mario Kart Wii with just the GCN controller. Then I switched to the nunchuck combination and a whole new level of fun opened up. Performing wheelies, tricks, and reducing the effects of POW blocks became so much easier when I started using that combination with motion controls.

And there's never anything wrong with another BLOODY Zelda, Metroid, whatever. There... really isn't. It's not like the games are the same. First-person shooters are more like each other than Zelda games are. Eh, maybe an exaggeration, but so is most of what Yahtzee has to say about Nintendo.

motion control can be great for pornos. I can see that happening real soon. No really with all the features that are coming out for "motion Control" It won't be long until they make some really graphic m rated game for it.

I'm also sure taht there will be other indrustrities taht would be intrested in this type of techology hince the porn indrustry

Even fans who only come here for Yahtzee's stuff probably knew >> about it, since he twittered about it.

You can research all you want about leeching - leeching still is leeching, even though one might categorise it as "officially endorsed connection leveraging". But yeah, now you know how someone may respond to an event such as this; someone who visits The Escapist for Zero Punctuation and for Zero Puctuation only, ever since the series started; who doesn't keep up with The Escapist from A to Z on a daily basis; someone who doesn't Twitter or Facebook because there are other video games to play; and who certainly isn't interested in someone else's Facebooking or Twittering.

But heck, consider my personal opinion a part of this promotion's research results: some people might not appreciate this whole connection leveraging. Are they outliers on the bell curve? 5th percentile? Good times.

Peace.

He forgot to mention how idiotic Sony was with its constant montages and pushing of a 3-D that is expensive as heck.

Didn't Sony already make a full body motion thing? Remember, the Eyetoy and the Playstation Eye?

Fuck off, Yahtzee, you old bastard. Your spoiler alert AFTER you say the spoiler wasn't funny.

I'm currently reading that book for the first time.

QFT.

It's not like Nintendo making these games stops developers from making completely new games. More importantly, a sequel CAN be a completely new game - what's wrong with using the same old characters? Nintendo has never made a 3D Kid Icarus, and no one can deny the vast differences between 2D and 3D Marios, or (to a somewhat lesser extent) Zeldas. And when Nintendo shoehorns Mario into a sports game, it's not like it makes the game worse - it just makes it sell better. In fact, sometimes it makes the games better. Would Smash Bros have been the game it is today if it didn't use familiar characters? Nintendo have come up with plenty of new IPs over the years, but people like to ignore that.

People just need to find a reason to hate on fun games.

CapnJack:

People just need to find a reason to hate...

Fixed.

okay, time to make america's army 3 for the kinect. i will love seeing people having to jump around and pretend shoot in a videogame simulation of basic training. should be really funny when they have to do the obstacle course. jump! climb up on this ledge! shoot these guys! throw a grenade through this window!

or MW2-"HEALTH REGEN! QUICK, JUMP BEHIND THE COUCH! GAIN HEALTH IF THE CAMERA CAN'T SEE YOU!"

i guess i support motion controls-mainly because other people using them amuses me.
personally, i'll stick to my pc gaming keyboard and mouse (the perfect input IMHO)

Yahtzee, you f'n nailed it on this one. I agree with your state of the industry completely. I share your disgust of the motion control fetish! And this is coming from a Wii owner, I feel dirty.

Oh lord, my sworn enemy- the shoddy-as-all-hell 3D dice from GIS. How could you bring yourself to using that in a ZP?

Zero Ponctuation is funny and have a brillhant format, but even when Yahtzee says something relevant it's hard to take it seriously. Even when he enjoys a game he just says somethink like "i admit it's fun" in 5 seconds and expends the other 5 minutes looking for each little bad detail in it. I think he hates games more than Jack Thompson! And talk about tendentious! Gee... I'll always come back for the laughs but the contend... he could try to become a real critic and not the Comic Book Guy (Simpsons) of games for a change.

On the 3DS I have to say all of Nintendos launch titles sound great the graphics look badass and the third party titles are a bit exciting looking for some,also 3D slider helps the 3DS prove it has more than a 3D gimmick because if you can do everything on it without 3D it's more of an option. Also everyone and thier grandma who was at E3 seems to say it works. And that's saying more than 3D TVs

Is it wrong that i laughed hysterically at the John Wayne Gacy joke?

Thank you, I needed a laugh today and catching up on episodes of Zero Punctuation like this one had me laughing hard.

DevilWolf47:

Nope! That was best joke in the whole thing.
