yet anough great review Yahtzee

it's cool to see your face in this one, you should do that more

Not that it hasn't been said already but, as usual you have a made a friggin' sweet review! Thankee :3

Yay for getting to see Yahtzee.
Don't act like you're not a little bit gay for him.
I actually went to pick up some games right after christmas and the clerk was saying he loved Uncharted. I said I'd only heard negative things about it and he was like; "Shut it, blackey".
Well he didn't say that, but he gave me a look that said as much.
Either way, I didn't think the game was going to be ground breaking.
Once again, super glad to see Yahtzee.
I lurves me some Yahtzee.

Great review as always, looking forward to more.

Dude I thought you were, like, 50.

I have not much against quick time events, but I completely agree that you have to be ready for them. Fahrenheit mentioned the word "get ready" before every event, but I like the way they did it in resident evil 4 much better since then you actually get to see whats going on and don't feel like you're playing dance mania with a controller.

Anyway, great review.

The live camera Yahtzee part was unspected but somehow entertaining.
I don't know how people didn't realize that Uncharted: Drake's Fortune was a massive rip-off. I, by just looking at the gameplay demo, realized that it at least ripped-off Prince of Persia and Tomb Raider. But, I didn't thought of Indiana Jones at the time so the game actually rips-off pretty much everything.

It's just like Crysis only in a bigger scale: The protagonist is in a squad of millitary specialists, who go to another country to slaughter another race. It kinda rymes with Predator, specially when the dead guy hanging in tree appears, plus the whole alien threat thing.

He may have the deliciously fresh-faced appearance of a 20-something Aussie, but in his heart, he posesses all the malign, cantankerous hatred of a gin-addled, 74-year-old mother in law.

Registered first and foremost to tell you, Yahtzee that you're hot. :)

That said, long time watcher, awesome review as per usual.

I've been waiting to see if Yahtzee could maintain the chewy goodness that are his reviews. So often you'll find someone who is talented, funny...and a flash in the pan. The writing becomes old and stale as jokes are recycled, and it falls into the pattern of insipid sameness.

What's the reverse of jumping the shark? Where a show or other medium hits the sweet spot? Well, maybe we should call it YAHTZEE! because I think he's hit it. The reviews aren't just great, they continue to be great and deliver.

Wednesday mornings are becoming my favorite day of the week.

Oh Yahtzee. You're just waiting for the swarm of fangirls (specifically this image) to claw your man tits until they're red raw, aren't you?

Mmmm.... wednesday dose of awesome.

Thanks, Y!

NOOOO WAAAAAAAAAYYYYYYYYYYYY!

Yahtzee makes an appearance on video. That was awsome... but where was the hat? :P

Yahtzee makes us (me) happy once more!

YAY! Best ZP yet imo

Loved the "press X to ot die thing" in the video

lol @ the crack regarding Joss Whedon...
Joss Whedon is awesome though

That is the funniest thing. EVER.

ROFLES, I SEES YAHTZEE!!!!!!!!

Errrrr, so a honky killing a bunch of zombie Hatians is fine, but killing all the other races isn't?

"Press X not to dodge"

LOL! Excellent one!

But RE5 isn't racist.

Uhh, are all those calling Yahtzee "hot" and stuff like that girls or are we just very open about our sexuality?

On ontopi - funny and interesting review as always. Spoiling is usually, well, not very nice, but the British old man thingy is quite obvious from even a short trailer.And anyway - who said you're nice and friendly? :P (It feels kinda weird to address something to somebody who might never actually read it ^^)

I'm guessing most of us calling Yahtzee hot are girls, as there is still this "anti-gay" stigma, last I checked.

I could tell that's exactly what the game was going to be like from the commercials. I'm sad I wasn't wrong.

also: you have a silly mustache

That was fun to see Yahtzee talk in person. Accent + geeky cuteness = teh hawtness.

Oh, and fun review, too. :D

oops double

lol christian slater straight to video... sooo true.

John Q. Johnnycake Christ of planet Mars!

They should post a sign next to the link of the video: "Streaming Digital Black-out"

that was good stuff. Is this a precedent for seeing more of Yhatzee in his reviews I wonder? Hope he wears his hat next time he makes an entry into his own review...or a fez

lol i first saw one of ur reviews on g4 when they showed it on xplay i was laughing non stop keep coming up with more great reviews cannot wait for the next one

Sure, and neither is Uncharted. I'm just wondering why he makes a point if it here. Personally, I think race in general is just stupid. Geographic ancestry? Who gives a shit?

Sorry Yahtzee, but I canīt understand most of your criticism.
Nearly everything you complained about could also be said for CoD4.

Racism? Well, Russians and Arabs. Plus, what to do, the game isnīt set in Europe, but in South-America
Quicktime-Events? Check (Dogs, grr)
Lack of Innovations? Check
Predictable Story? Check.
Super-Precise Enemys? Check.

I think you overdraw the Gameīs Weaknesses, you didnīt said anything good about it.

my 2 cents.

if you keep moaning at every game with quick time events your going to end up moaning at every ga.. ah you moan at every game regardless but still just expect them all the time and never be surprised by them

And the final proof of Yahtzee's tiresome, idiotic, pointless PC brainwashing. Racism my ass.

Hey, Yahtzee, here's a question for you: how can you have the unmitigated gall to try to call out games for being predictable and repetitive when you just repeat the SAME LAME SCHTICK EVERY GODDAMN WEEK?

Yahtzee is pessimistic and rags on the games he reviews? Shock and horror!

On QTEs: I haven't played many games that use them lately, but do they all tend to kill you when you miss one? The main reason I could tolerate the ones in Berserk and Shenmue was because you were penalized for missing a button press - lose life, start a fight at a disadvantage, take the long way around, etc. - but it didn't force a reset.

BattleSnake:

Ummm....that's kind of the POINT of his reviews. The only two exceptions to this are Portal and Psychonauts. If you want praise flowing out of the ass for a game, go read one of the billion and a half 10/10 perfect score reviews given away like candy by the major game sites.
