Honey badger strapped to a Catherin wheel? Someone make this happen.

GamemasterAnthony:
Yahtzee, really...I am VERY disappointed in you. The Other M characterization dead horse has been stripped of it's skin by now.

In fact, I'm calling a new rule. Anyone who talks about Other M's characterizations in ANY light are now required to watch this video before commenting further.

No, I'd say that Other M deserves every ounce of venom it receives.

Chatney:
I think it's immature to equate something so trivial as a video game with real discrimination.

I'm not equating anything. There are many different forms of discrimination. Not all of them are equivalent, but they're all quite real, I can assure you.

Gamers are like any other group of people, but it's also immature to make a blanket statement and say that everyone who utters something sexist is automatically a sexist person when it's far more likely that they're just idiots reaching for vile crap to spew.

I don't think you quite understand what the word "immature" means. Besides, why should the two situations you've described be in any way mutually exclusive? Most people who spew misogynistic slurs are both misogynists and idiots looking to say the most hateful, ugly thing they can think of. The same goes for racist and homophobic slurs.

Jerkules:

Chatney:
It's disappointing to see even Yahtzee fall in line behind the "video games are sexist"-crowd. Then again, he did the same thing with the "RE5 is racist"-people. Video games and gamers still have a lot of growing up to do.

Mean old PC brigade ruining your day?

While "video games are sexist" makes no sense as a universal claim, the industry clearly has issues with sexism and, to a lesser extent, racism. If you can't (or more likely won't) see that, you're the one that has some growing up to do.

"Everyone who disagrees with me is immature and needs to grow up".

Yeah that definitely sounds mature. [/sarcasm]

I've replayed it many times (have like 95% of trophies) and still want to replay it. If Afterburner Climax was a slasher, it'd be like this...
Really, it all depends on how much you are into score, leaderboards and slashers. Although initially it's really wonky, until you upgrade your combos.

Edit: you're doing the zombie baseball game wrong. 90% of time I complete it without Nick taking a single hit. It's not intuitive though, it's easy to start doing wrong stuff and screw up.
Tip: 1. Never leave ammo spawn, stand there and never leave firing mode (L2).
2. Reload often (square button Yahtzee! explains a lot really... Reload the fudjing Chainsaw Blaster manually with square button while aiming!) and pay attention to zombie spawn pattern which is 100% fixed and predictable.

Jerkules:

I've decided to not waste my time with you.

Oh, the irony!

That would imply that your time is valuable, which I personally doubt. But, uh, do what you feel bruh.

Thank you for proving my initial point.

Now, have a nice day, fellas.

I thought you'd decided not to waste your time with me. Couldn't resist the urge to get the last word in, could you?

Eh, I'm still gonna pick up the game, despite reviews. In the end, it boils down to personal appeal anyway.

/shrug

Yes it really is quite sad that a brain dead high school cheerleader could be considered progessive as far as women in video games are concerned.

Yeah, that "quiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiirkyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy" moment pretty much sums up my feelings for this game perfectly. Still, might be cool. It definetly looks fun and "quiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiirkyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy", but I still want to try Shadows of the Damned first.

SirBryghtside:
Great as always, the last line had me in stitches XD Totally agree with you on the sexism issue, you put it better than I ever could.

In fact, I'm calling a new rule. Anyone who talks about Other M's characterizations in ANY light are now required to watch this video before commenting further.

What Bob completely fails to understand in that video is that the character would be awful even if it wasn't Samus. The fact that it is is just insult to injury, and it's a DAMN big insult.

Out of interest - have you played Other M?

I have, actually...and it's actually a pretty good game from a gameplay perspective. From where I stand, it seems it only got a bad rap because of the story.

Fuck you #1: It is a ninja gaiden style control scheme played with those annoying arrow keys that No More Heroes regulated to camera control duty. That simply cannot be considered good by any kind of objective judgmental scape.

Fuck you #2: Pointing the wiimote at the screen to use missiles. Do I even need to say anything else?

Fuck you #3: It did not play like a Metroid game. It played like God of War/Ninja Gaiden/Bayonetta/Devil May Cry. Metroid is about exploration and oppressive crushing atmosphere, similar to Silent Hill in design terms really, whereas Other M was a linear and hamstringed. A Metroid game without MetroidVania is not a Metroid game (PS: if you're such a Bob fantard you even try to bring up Metroid Prime,you automatically lose all credibility)

Fuck you #4: Even if you could argue that the gameplay wasn't shit balls on a stick, which some stupid people seem to think they can, the story was such a horrible abortion of basic story telling and utter rape of a pre-established character the gameplay could have revolutionized the fucking industry (spoiler: it didn't, it was actually a huge step backwards in that regard) and it would still be a horrible fucking game.

That "bad rap" is totally deserved, cuz fucking your girlfriend can be the most amazing experience ever, but everyone else is gonna say she's a shit lay because she likes to hide razor blades in her vagina. Yes I think that is a totally fair comparison and is only intentionally offense for shock value to prove a point by using extremes!

Xman490:
In Minecraft, there is a reason to "really, really need rotting meat". Rotten flesh and other meats heal pet wolves and make them mate.
Maybe it's the same thing with game developers coming together.

You don't really need rotting meat to make game developers mate. Cheap booze works as well if not better.

The worst of Suda 51 > the best of any military fps ever.

Dunno if Yahtzee actually had fun with it or not but I still like playing this time to time.

It has Zombies... Damn I hate the fact that people have been wearing the undead thin! I wish I didn't feel the need to sigh every time one of them pops out at me in a sewer grate or something because I like the scary appeal they once held. Now the end of the world by zombies is just as boring as morning coffee.

Pff, haters gonna hate on Lollipop Chainsaw. Personally, it's the most fun I've had with my Xbox 360 yet.

Huh. I'm gonna agree with Yahtzee on this one. Juliet is definitely a better female protagonist in terms of outfit and personality than most others, but there's room for improvement. Besides, are you guys faulting Suda51 for being different? I welcome different to break the monotony of the other AAA titles!

Mr.Pandah:

ChaosDragoness:
I've seen some gameplay of this game on the youtube channel of my favorite game commentator, and I have to say that I'll take a pass on this one. It might be QUIIIIIRKY, but it's just too repetitive for my taste.

Is it Robbaz? I love Robbaz haha also this game seems way too repetitive for me to consider.

Haha, yes, it's Robbaz. He's one of the best, if not, the best commentator on Youtube. And yeah, slicing heads off zombies in here looks like it eould get boring after not even a half hour.

Eh, I like it. Controls are a little clunky and Juliet's a fucking lunatic, but it's a fun little game after a hard days' work.

To Croshaw: you are such a hypocrite!

I'm sick of the fact that you act like some Catholic Priest, telling us the wrongs of how women were treated horribly, and sucking the fun out of everything. You even manage to complain that women were being treated badly in Ico and Shadow of the Colossus! A simple story about a "boy protecting a girl" and you made it into something offensive.

But then you become a hypocrite, and treat women like crap or like some-kind of sex objects. Which is weird, because I'm sure your more into men (see Dragon Age 2.... for a start).

No, I didn't like Other M, the gameplay looked boring, and I'm not sure how to feel about Samus Aran's characterization, but when you wave your finger about some great evil that was done (like you always do), I just want to defend Other M from the giant bully that is you. Maybe Other M was meant as a prequel. Maybe they thought the idea was good on paper.

You have not seen anything yet. Korval has a blog that covers the cutsceens of metroid other m that everyone should see.
