Sheesh.

Look, it's fine if you want to dumb down the vocabulary for the irate fanboys you're hoping to attract from Digg, just don't ask your contributors to dumb down the opinions too. kthxbye!

I believe it was Orwell who said "Never use a long word where a short one will do." There's wisdom there. Accessibility is important.

I thought it was bloody funny as reviews go.

Of course this review was going to be contentious; it's a review of Halo 3. It's aggressively put, but the point behind what he's saying is right: 'It's Run of the Mill'

The main problem is that Halo 3 is good, but not special. Its multiplayer should not need to 'compensate' in any way for a lacklustre campaign, because they should work brilliantly together. It's also not especially inspired - I have seen a lot of Bioshock comparisons, indeed by Yahtzee but also by Halo fans absolutely tearing it to pieces unnecessarily. I think the best comment was the one about it being a well told story but not having a game attached to it, leaving me with the distinct impression that said poster clearly hadn't played the game.

I suppose I just don't see what the fuss is about. It's a good shooter, but not of the stratospheric heights of brilliance you'd expect judging by the media attention lavished upon it. I think it's unfair to belittle the integrity of a reviewer (I refer to Russ, the reviewer in question) simply because he had a different opinion. As if somehow perceiving the game in a different way is some sort of crime. I know Bioshock has its detractors, and to be honest Yahtzee's review of it made me laugh, because the endless respawning and dying did drive me crazy as did the other irritating niggles. I never said it was a perfect game and is untouchable, it's just a fresher game than Halo 3, and tries something genuinely new. Admittedly it doesn't always succeed in its objectives, but there's a hell of a lot of game in there, rich in its atmosphere and depth. Halo 3's atmosphere is OK, but I can't say it feels that inspired - I noticed the comments in other threads about it being Hard SF in the manner of Asimov, but it hasn't got anything approaching the level of depth as his works of fiction. No, Bioshock doesn't have multiplayer either, but does it NEED to have multiplayer? As a result, I can't score them against each other in that respect. I hope none of that sounded immature - I don't like getting snarky and bitchy, and sincerely hope I struck the right tone - but I wanted to put across what I wanted to say in a rational way that avoids flame broiling.

Anyway, let's not get into the PC/Console thing. You play one, the other, or both. Let's not make this unpleasant.

I know the internet is a good place to be a jerk because there is usually no risk of suffering any consequences (i.e., bloody nose), but there's really no need for the idiot comment. I was kind of jerky myself, but I usually refrain from calling people names unless I'm REALLY ANGRY.

Anyway, are you talking about some supposed irony of me blasting such a thing as the existence of a Console vs. PC war? Please elaborate. I'm curious. And don't worry, I have tissues handy.

You comment on Yahtzee seeming to come in towards the end and then start bashing the movie, but meanwhile you just learned of the Console vs PC FPS 'war' and immediately decide that all participants are shut in losers that need to 'get out more'. You did the exact same thing you suggested Yahtzee did.

There's also the fact that if you had indeed gotten out more, you'd have met people from both 'sides' of the 'war' and realized it much sooner, unless you're one of those types that keeps their gaming hobby a secret in hopes their friends don't cast them out.

Garfgarog:
If you consider scale to begin with, given the setting of Rapture, you couldn't exactly expect epic gunfights at every corner.

Wow, because pretty much every corner I turned had some masked lass with a gun pointing at me or a rocket turret just sitting there for the hell of it.

In that regard of filling it's slot of 'ravished city wasteland' I think it's definitely got enough excitement in it's battles, especially on Hard when Big Daddies stop being a joke and start becoming rape on legs for the unprepared.

Hard? They're piss easy on any difficulty. Run, shoot, die, respawn, run, shoot, die, respawn, run, shoot, di- you get the picture. And yes, I LOVED the design and style of the game; at heart I just wish everything was Art Deco and going out in public with suspenders over your shirt and a trillby on your noggin wasn't laughed at... but again atmosphere and a great tale of socio-economic horror under the sea just don't make up for piss poor gameplay!

If you really considered scale you'd have enjoyed Bioshock, but it seems kind of clear that you enjoy insipid boomfests more. :]

I did enjoy Bioshock; that is Bioshock potential novel and Bioshock the potential movie. And I completed Bioshock the game in near enough two sittings... but the gameplay, the weight of objects in the world and the manner in which you're able to interact and "play" with enemies didn't even meet up to System Shock 2's somewhat antique offering.

And can you stop trying to fraking insinuate that I'm some slack jawed "college frat boy" [that's what the Yanks call them isn't it?] who can only enjoy something if it has tits and or guns and explosions. For a man who hadn't even heard of the Elite series until I posted about it a few minutes ago you're remarkably stuck up about video game culture.

No, the difference is that my point is valid. Bashing a movie only after seeing the last third is ignorant. You are exaggerating my stance for dramatic effect. "Shut in losers" is a bit much. If you are an active participant in a Console vs. PC war, getting away from video games for a bit may do you some good, no?

niktu:
Seems like this Yahtzee guy is one of those "it's cool to be contrarian" types. It's like he's walked into the last third of a movie and then blasts the plot and storyline. Yeah, that's a fair and balanced review.

And I had no idea there was actually a FPS console vs. PC war. That's hilarious! You people need to get out more.

To be fair, I've played the first 2 and there isn't really a plot to begin with. Oh wait, there tries to be, but it gets stuck like a broken record and repeats the same bit for 2 hours so that the story actually lasts more than 15 minutes.

Halo is pretty and a decent FPS for consoles. There is a reason the PC version has done dismally compared to other FPS games on the market, and it's because its frankly just not as good as people want it to be. The only way my friends and I managed to make the first Halo any fun at all was to completely remove the FPS elements of it and try to run each other over with jeeps in blood gulch. Halo 2 was a yawn fest extension of the first game. I'm not quite sure where the love of the series comes from but hey, to each their own.

I've liked plenty of 'over-hyped' games in my time and don't really feel it necessary to beat up a game just because others all seem to love it. Usually there are reasons everybody else loves a game, it's just that in this case I can't find it.

ccesarano:
Then again, I'm likely guilty of similar things since people on Wii60.com had serious issue with my rating Metroid Prime 3: Corruption an 81/100. Then again, I wouldn't have minded them dumbing Metroid down if the combat was actually worth more of a damn.

No no no no no.

You do not spend a whole post calling someone pretentious before then revealing that you work for a site that combines Xbox360 and Wii systems into one website in some kind of ploy against Sony. To even pretend that Microsoft and Nintendo are allied and not out for each other's necks is as ignorant as calling adventure gamers "pretentious."

That aside, I remember when Escapist threads weren't full of flames, flamebait and the kind of argument fallacies that would make Soviet Russia get a hard-on.

Garfgarog:

ccesarano:
the one aspect of the gaming market that matters: consoles.

No, and you can't even hope to justify that. Wrong opinion is wrong.

You're right. Handhelds have been proving incredibly profitable, more so than the GameBoy ever was now that the DS is on the scene.

Look, I know PC gamers love to think that the computer gaming platform is number one, but the fact of the matter is back when the first Civilization came out it was named Game of the Year on PC and a best seller while, at best, strategy game of the year on Super Nintendo. However, the game sold around the same number of units on both, despite being a PC game best seller.

Now you can argue all you like about whether console gamers are more stupid or not and I could care less if you swear by the "keyboard and mouse is better" argument because I could care less. I grew up with console games because I had a shitty computer, and getting the Playstation was cheaper than upgrading the computer for the latest and greatest. This is still a fact today, and as long as it is consoles will sell more than PC games. The PC has as few real exclusives coming out that are worth playing as the damn PS3 does.

Once again, though, I'd say it's better to see a game like Bioshock coming to the 360 even if it was "dumbed down" by excluding an inventory screen (I'd say the Vita-Chambers are a result of the same mentality as Prey and have nothing to do with "console 'tards"). You introduce a more intelligent form of game to the audience and suddenly they may start saying "Hm, how come more games can't have well thought out stories and gameplay as Bioshock?". Viola, you now have a larger market to appeal to and can start making console games smarter.

You do not spend a whole post calling someone pretentious before then revealing that you work for a site that combines Xbox360 and Wii systems into one website in some kind of ploy against Sony. To even pretend that Microsoft and Nintendo are allied and not out for each other's necks is as ignorant as calling adventure gamers "pretentious."

I seem to run into this issue a lot.

The whole idea behind Wii60, at least for the CURRENT staff, as the old staff has run along to do other things, maybe even create SDF, was that we felt Microsoft and Nintendo were taking the gaming industry in the right direction. Microsoft has shown that, while obviously in it for money, they DO care about games. The introduction of Xbox Live and the evolution of it has given much for gamers to love, and even something as stupid as Achievements has proved to add replay value to a game. Hell, it's why I'm even bothering finding the skulls in Halo 3. The Wii, meanwhile, shows a different method in control and represents an idea a lot of developers have forgotten: games aren't about graphics, but about fun. I could go into a further discussion into the impacts of the two companies, but I won't.

Basically, Wii60 is meant to support both MS and Nintendo because of the direction they are pushing the industry: progress. I've hated Sony for a long time, but I'm actually excited that one of my roommates wants a PS3 because of Warhawk.

The site is not about pretending MS and Nintendo are in bed with each other (though I'm sure some of our community wish it), it's about what the companies are doing with the industry.

Or that's at least how I justify writing news and reviews for it. Nonetheless, I'll be leaving for greener pastures eventually.

Straw Man? Can you provide the sources? And can you also explain why you make the assumption that a strategy game that has came out on PC and NES will have the same quality over both platforms? You dismiss the keyboard and mouse argument, fair enough, but in this case it is necessary to incorporate that factor.

such focussed efforts to irritate fanboys

There hasn't been any backlash yet... they must all still be in bed.

Or in their 245th consecutive hour playing Halo 3 multiplayer.

That's fine. You have an informed opinion. And what do you guys expect story wise from an alien shooter? It's mainly about shooting stuff.

First, let's all do the derailment dance! *dances a fine Irish jig*

While I cannot prove everyone used it, the mouse for the SNES had already been released by then, as it came with Mario Paint and individually. I don't recall if you could also get it package with Civilization, but memory recalls both a small box and a gigantic box. Unfortunately, for sales numbers I have no physical proof. Even the Wikipedia page lacks any such numbers, and I have never been able to find them in the past.

Ah Finally a reviewer that isn't suck up Microsoft's ass and sees how boring and plain Halo 3 really is.

He should have at least played the multiplayer, even to just rip on the morons who you come across on Live and the daft things that people do. This was still great, but ripping on the single-player to a multiplayer focused game is kind of like, well, what were you expecting?

Great review. AGAIN. And very accurate from what I hear, although I'm yet to buy it. I may buy it when it goes down to budget price level.

There's a metric shittonne of plot; it just isn't all put out on display. Halo's storyline [a nice mish-mash of original writing, Star Hammer, the Culture series, Aliens, Christian and Norse mythologies] is layered. You can play the games and skip every cutscene and still know what to do. You can watch the cutscenes and listen to the in-game dialogue and have a better understanding. You can hunt down every last clue and piece of information in the game, and then mix that with the novels, graphic novels, action figure biographies and the ARGs and get a greater idea of what's going on still...

But the game never forces it on you. It's integral in understanding WHY events are unfolding as they are in the games, but it's not integral in having fun within it.

http://halostory.bungie.org/ <- we've spent the last eight years or so working on that.

But then again, the game -WAS- basically marketed on the Campaign mode. "Finish The Fight" and "End Of The Epic Journey" is saying that the Campaign is going to be great. They should have just said "Blow Up Your Friends With Lots Of New Sh*t!".

Also; Love all your vids, Yahtzee. Keep'em up!

Cool, thanks for posting that. I've always thought the Halo story was good as far as alien shooters go. Most games put about as much time into story as pornos do.

I was more at issue with your comparison of best game for either platform, and the vague and not exactly solid reasoning behind it. However, as you say, we don't want to slip further off the tracks, so I won't bother saying any more on the issue or the issue of Wii60.

I found this review to be excellent. It was funny, charasmatic, and it was nice for it to be about a recently released game. The Bloom complaints particularly put me into fits of the giggles.

I think everyone needs to take a "chill pill", Agree with his comments or not, his flash vids are damned good and only a retarded sea monkey who'd been drinking paint stripper all day would disagree with that...anyway i played halo1 and halo2 THEY WERE OK (I personally preffered no2)but then with a lack of an internet connection for my xbox they would be just that, OK. The halo games were probably the only games worth getting for the first xbox seeing as though munches odysee turned out to be a load of cow vomit.
As for this new installment well i dont have a 360, just doesnt interest me (im stil replaying rome total war NOW THATS A GAME!)so i cant comment on halo 3 but with so much hype that was going on about the game its not suprising that it wasnt able to meet everyones "standards" (there i tried to defend it) anyway keep up the great work yahtzee i look forward to next weeks ramble fest (~ ^^)

Excellent review. You could remove every instance of "Halo 3" from the review, replace it with "Halo", and you'd have essentially my opinion of the first game. Since everything I've heard is that the subsequent games are more of the same, I never felt a desire to play them.

On a mostly unrelated note, is Yahtzee not talking as quickly as he did in his earlier videos?

Also, any chance of getting Zero Punctuation updated Wednesday morning instead of at noon? It seems like a great way to wake up in the morning.

ahh that was a good review Yahtzee, it made me aware of one of the reasons I would currently make a rather crappy critic myself. I can fool myself into thinking really mediocre games are pretty good, rather then see them for what they are, I have a tendency to overlook the bad qualities in a game in favor of it's good ones despite the fact that said bad qualities may be so massive and obvious that they make me want to carve my eyes out with the nearest sharp implement of destruction. That being said I completely agree with everything you had to say about Halo 3 and the franchise as a whole.

I probably wouldn't be able to be nearly so critical since 2 of my brothers have been a fan of the series since they first bought it for their respective Xbox's on day one. It's worth saying that even a hardcore Halo fan like my brother can still find your videos hilarious without getting the slightest bit angry. In short, bravo.

I agree. He is very adept and making clever, very witty video presentations. Not very adept at being unbiased, but I'm assuming that's not the purpose of his vids.

Wow, there are already over 90 comments, and it's still Wednesday. It looks like this review served its purpose.

Despite never having played a Halo game aside from the awful Halo demo for the PC, I enjoyed this review especially after last week's letdown. The closing music sealed the deal. Kudos for "Starship Trooper"! Now I just have to find a way to get that damn tune out of my head.

If you're going to attempt to bash Halo 3 in a humourous way, at least put some humour into it. This just felt like a video version of every internet post about Halo 3. Next time choose a game that every idiot with a keyboard hasn't shit on.

I won't deny that the entire marketing of the game has been insane and perhaps focusing on the wrong stuff.

Still, I haven't played it yet (360 being repaired...yeah yeah) but my mates talk of it with a smile on their face and almost a tear in their eye. Not many games get that kind of passionate love out of people. I'm not sure if I could call a game like that 'average'. It has a dedicated audience that really get an almost religious exhilaration out of it.

Many people here talk of how such-and-such is better, but a games purpose is for it to be fun for the player, and these thousands of die-hard Halo fans seem to be getting a huge amount of enjoyment out of it. I guess that means - so what if other games may be better in whatever way. So many people are loving every minute of Halo 3, and that's the kind of response a videogame is meant to create.

I say credit to Bungie for pulling it off, regardless of whether everyone agrees. I'm looking forwards to playing it nonetheless.

( _ ) sigh

I happen to agree mostly with his thoughts on Halo 3 and would actually love to see him turn his eye to the so-called untouchable titles like the Final Fantasy games or the Metal Gear games. These 2 series of games tend to get a free pass whenever they are released due in large part to them not being western titles I am sure.

Edit: Removed all my previous comments. I swore I wouldn't get bitchy, and am not going to step on my principles. I just wish this wouldn't turn into PC vs. Console Bashing.

Still, the being blown all the way to Narnia bit makes me wet myself :D

Excellent, and FUNNY AS ALL HELL as always.

Before I even watched the video, I LAUGHED MY ASS OFF when I saw "Comments [96]" and it hadn't even been a full day yet. I figured a lot of ignorant newbie assholes would flood this topic and attack your credibility, and I was so right.

gc_danny:

Never before seen? Wasn't there a level builder in Timesplitters? And doesn't forge just let you change where various items spawn? Sure, it's a novelty putting a few tanks in High Ground, but the level design is solid enough that most tweaking done seems to be tweaking for tweaking's sake, rather than actual improvement. Sure, it's nice to see a hornet or tank show up in Multiplayer, but the maps really aren't big enough to support them, so what's the point?

My friends made a gametype called "Mongoose NASCAR"

It's one of the most chaotic and plain FUN experiences I've ever had in a videogame, especially a FPS.

Not only do you just change where weapons spawn on the map, you can do items and teleporters, etc. Like I know a guy who's working on a map... based on Valhalla, but removing all the easily accessible weaponry and using items/teleporters/gravlifts to make it a pseudo-platformer in order to get the powerful guns.

Which is just sort of damn cool.

Yo, people want him to make a review on a game and so he makes a review on the game.

So what if he bashes it? You don't have to listen to him; after all there are about what? 20-40-60 other magazines that automatically face plants with 9.0-10.00 [Insert uber title here] ya'll can do read. And when you do, you'll notice a lot of them tend to read about the same.

No game is bloody perfect, different strokes for different folks. But if you want to compare VIA FPS; then pick up Halo 1 for the Xbox AND for the PC. Play them both in retrospec.

FPS on a console HAVE to be dumbed down because controllers are bad for FPS, period. If you play the same Halo game on the PC, you'll notice that legendary somehow feels like normal or even easy mode because the Keyboard allows you to have better control for the GENRE.

Now when I see a review for a game; I'm not going to read it for the plot but I am going to read it for the GAMEPLAY. Because, regardless of what GAME it IS; it's a damn GAME.

Xenosaga series is NOT A GAME tho it PRETENDS. To play Xenosaga, the controls are.... O. Yes, just the circle button because it's an interactive story. Oh yeah and since you barely level up in the bloody thing, it's more of a puzzle than an RPG fight but thats going off topic.

Halo is just another average FPS. Funky Weapons that does odd things, check. Vehicles, check. Dual wielding, check. Too much animation to easily tell what the crap most enemies are doing? Check. Hm, that pretty much covers it.

It's nothing really new, nothing different, it's the same damn game modded to play/look prettier. Just like Bioshock, it's a damn copy of System Shock 2 but it's prettier and easy because you can't even die. HELL, Half Life 2 had the Gravity Gun before the psychic powers which is the same thing. Just played from the hand rather than the gun.

Bioshock is great but the AI is retarded, sometimes I when I play it; it feels like playing Serious Sam. They just kinda mindlessly run at you and the ranged enemies do the same; they come out shoot and hide and it's the western frontier all over again.

I like Yahtzee because he's funny but he points out the flaws well and there are a few things I do not agree with him. And it's ok, because it's HIS opinion. "I think" "I don't care", anything that usually has anything to do with self thought is opinion. And this is what he finds about Halo.

End of story, if you guys want to flame then make sure to bring some burgers; we can have a BBQ. Want to cry?, I do have a pool I need to fill. Etc, etc, etc.

Contrary to what you may believe, having no social skills is not a good thing.

While I agree the single player isn't fan-effing-tastic it's still fun to play with buddies. The real reason to get Halo 3 though is multiplayer. And so if you don't give 2-craps about multiplayer you won't give 2-craps about Halo 3. You saying saying you don't like Halo 3 because you don't give 2-craps about multiplayer is like me saying I don't like BioShock because I don't give 2-craps about plasmids. You're entitled to your opinion obviously. If you don't like multiplayer then you don't like it. I just found it a bit disheartening that you essentially shrugged off multiplayer in a sentence when multiplayer is the meat and potatoes of the game. Oh and if you played Halo 1 you'd know that the last boss was the warthog run at the end.

Anyways, I don't care that you don't like it. I just felt like posting that. I look forward to your future videos. :)

That's good for a banning. Especially if the same hostile sentiment is spread across multiple forum threads.
