Zero Punctuation: Super Smash Bros. Brawl

I think Jiggly is a waste of space BUT he/she/it (I don't know my pokemon) is quite fun to play with. Mainly because of his/her/its taunts and his/her/its prediliction for shouting "PUFF" when bashing someone.

For the casual gamer, he/she/it's next to worthless against someone better, except as a fun character to play with. I'm told though that if you take the time to master him/her/it, there are some incredibly powerful moves at your disposal if you use them correctly. Apprantly the move where Jiggly falls asleep is hugely powerful. I've never managed to pull it off though.

I'm sad to say this is the first Zero Punctuation review I didn't enjoy. not because I feel the need to defend my Wii purchase, I'm well aware the modest white obelisk has been gathering dust since a week after Resident Evil 4 was released on it and I got tired of rescuing the president's daughter on a jetski - a scenario I never imagined would grow tiresome before performing it but twice.

Sadly, the review swayed further from vitriolic mockery of the games flaws and more to what I feel was rather unnecessary hatred for the game, the console, fans of the game and people who visit the Escapist once a week to hear some well-connected words they can then proceed to abuse verbatim until the next pussy-slurping installment. I felt as though I was some sort of bottom-feeding, scum-sucking waste of human life for daring to click the play button and can't help but feel offended by this unwarranted assault even though I fall squarely outside the target area of this verbal bombardment.

then dont watch the review you twat! Why in gods name does people like you even bother to write a reply? you surely most have known that Yatzee would not curl up in loveball with this game so how can you be offended, seriously!
Do you watch comedy shows and complain about them making fun of stuff...
some people are just beond help and comprehension!

BTW enjoyed the review =D

Two things, Jarnis.

1) Kermi had to watch the review to find out that it was going to be vitriolic and filled with unnesecerry criticism so you saying "don't watch the review you twat!" is an argument which is nonsensical as well as being overly agressive and petulant.

2) Yahtzee is popular because we are here. We the fans. That includes trolls like your good self. He was not made popular by mindless ranting about subjects with no real relevance, he was made popular by making humerous observations about games shortcomings that other reviewers often felt the need to ignore. When he strays from this form, as he may or may not have done in his SSB review, we have every right to say "er, hang on a minute..."

You have to stop the patronizing my friend. It's obvious we all come here because we LIKE Yahtzee's reviews, but, and this is because he is HUMAN after all, he is not ALWAYS right. In fact I often find him to be wrong in a lot of things; it's because of his sense of humor that we just laugh at these "mistakes", but these "mistakes" will be pointed out by some every once in a while and no matter how big of a fan you are (very big one I imagine, telling by how you lashed out at our fellow escapist member) you have to take it like the rest of us.

I was watching this with my brother, and when you described THAT GUY, he just starts loudly saying my name. I have to admit, I'm a Nintendo fanboy, as well as THAT GUY, and you pretty much nailed it. :P

MaraN88:
How can you defend jiggely ?? havent played brawl yet but jiggely sucked in melee.. The only good thing that fluff ball could do was to fall asleap next to someone, which was only possible to do in multiplayer since nobody cared what the fluff ball did.. Kirby kicks fluffballs ass!! Rant rant rant, rant rant.. RANT..... rant.

I can't beleive I'm doing this....
Jigglypuffs not just a one trick pony, when used correctly, Rollout delivers a killer blow that knocks them flying fast sideways, meaning they really have no hope at all. But yeah, next to Kirby, its nothing. Hell, nothing really measures up to the dark pink dude, in the original, in melee and in Brawl (an unavoidable Final Smash that gives yourecovery and weapons? hello?).

48 more....oh, and Jigglypuff rules. Not my favorite, but she can be effective if you learn how to use her.

At least you dont have any Wii-mote failing like you did in Zack & Wiki review ;P Keep up the great work ranting out the points that game companies always overlook, as for Mario, your right on how nintendo uses him too much. Ha I havent really played a mario game since the originals on teh super nintendo.

On that subject, I was quite suprised that SSB didn't have any wiimote gestures but considering how much of a disaster they were in Mortal Kombat: Armageddon, that's probably a good thing.

Ack, I don't think this is gonna make 1000. 45 to go and his next review should come up shortish. I dunno, maybe we'll get a late influx...

Don't worry Gremlin, I'll help.

Me too.

You can easily dodge out of it if you know the timing. And it only yields items if items go into the pot to begin with.

Yahtzee had better review GTA 4 this week.

Nah, impossible, GTA only reached the stores yesterday or so, it's not enough time to try out a game and prepare a review.

Wow. Posts per review jumped from around 200 to nearly 1000 in one week. Did ZP get some new promotion or something?

Y'know, I've thought about it for a long time now. I think I like vanilla ice cream more than chocolate. It's much more versatile and you can really change it to suit your needs.

Speaking as a fighting game enthusiast, a nintendo fanboy, and a competitive Smash player:

You're absolutely fucking right. At least about Ess Ess Bee Bee. You would think that Snake, a big part of marketing for the game, would at least be playable a first, right? Wrong, and that pisses me off. But at least 15 quick matches on Shadow Moses rectifies that. Sonic's a story for another day.

But I concur with other posters that there was too much hate and not enough funny. Smash hasn't always been about button-mashing (surprise, motherfucker), but this game was engineered that way.

A majority of fighting games are fun and not button-mashing based. Some are button-combo-mashing like Marvel Vs Capcom 2 (Fucking Cable), whereas some are just absolute filth, like Dead Or Alive, whose only selling point seems to be breasts big enough to poke someone in the eye half a world away.

The history of Smash went as such:
Nintendo decided to play around with a multiplayer fighting game, unique from other fighters.

Then Nintendo saw how well the game was received (not just by fanboys)and proceeded to make a new one and improve on some game mechanics.

Then Nintendo shat on people who normally played fighters and turned it into a button-mashing fanboy-fest.

For the most part, spot on, good job, can't wait to troll people with the video.

No, just mocked a few fanboys.

For those that don't know, he released a review of God of War PSP. He got back on track with his humorously cinic observations, but at the end of the video, he put the text "BRAWL STILL SHIT".

Yup, either he didn't play the game, or he's one of the greatest trolls on Earth.

That's a lot to quote. First of all, you're clearly not a Nintendo fanboy, you're just saying that in the desperate hope that it will make your opinion sound more convincing. Which it doesn't. Second, we're now in the (relatively speaking) intellectual part of the forum, where the people with loud opinions, short attention spans and irrational logic have already gotten bored of saying that something is good or bad without a valid point. Which leads me nicely to my third point: how exactly has SSBB "shat" on fighting game players? Back it up with some reasoning, if you've got any. How have the controls for fighting differed? And no, slight modifications like the removal of wavedashing or the adding of tripping don't count.

AND FURTHERMORE, in case you're not already bored to tears reading this post, the reason most fighting games are button-mashers is BECAUSE they rely on combinations, something Smash Bros has been able to avoid, hence its popularity with non-fighting game players. In my experience with other fighting "combination" games, as you described them, whenever I learned the combinations to a particular character, I'd still lose to a random button masher, and I always stood a very good chance when I knew nothing, say for instance, oh I don't know...MARVEL Vs. CAPCOM, maybe?

The Randomness in brawl stems mostly from the other point Yahtzee brings up, that being the "clusterfuck" behind a veil of smoke, and how brawl has more stuff that explodes this time around.

And now my fingers hurt from typing, which, blitzy, I blame entirely on you.

Actually, I think he did it for fun, to see the reaction. After all, he DOES claim to be have a hatred for other humans, right? (Chuckling).

PISSED AT YAHTZEE!!!!!

yahtzee is quite honestly a twat...
well alright maybe hes alright but that doesn't annoy me....
alll that annoys me is that the EGOTISTICAL PESSIMISTIC f**k has stolen all my friends as all they seem to do sit at home and slowly melt thier minds as they wait for the next yahtzee video. not only that but when i do find people to go out with all they do is repeat yahtzee lines until i have to beat them to death with the leg of another yahtzee fanboy...

and about the whole "ooohhh no boo hoo ...you have to unlock game characters" shit that everybody talks about...if you didnt then you would have no goal, the game would be shit... it would be about as much fun as playing with a toaster...
...
...
...
...in a swimming pool
maybe im getting carried away i've said i like yahtzees videos and i would have nothing against them if anyone who saw them would instantly be addicted and take them litterally, which in turn would end video games as all of them apart from about 3 wouldn't exist..."OH NO" people would scream as they realise the only thing yahtzee could now review is the latest democratic debate.
...OH WAIT nobody would really care as your all so addicted to these videos you would watch a video of him critisising his own shit!!!
...dont worry if that ever happens im sure ther'll be lines of people lining up to destroy every democratic system on the earth untill we all end up in anarchy and some crazed fan comes to find me and hunt me down...too bad he watches all of these videos so much i doubt that he would have moved in the last 3 months and therefore would be easier to beat in a fight than a pig and butcher tag team...

basiclly my message is...YAHTZEE GREAT VIDEO
...everybody else stop trying to fuck him up the arse everytime he turns round to tell someone else to stop it.

p.s im fully aware that tomoro ill log on to see how many angry pm's i have and quite frankly wont be suprised when i see the sign for infinity jumping up and down on my screen faster than you when you see a new yahtzee video.

So...guv...do you suffer from bipolar or what? You created an account to recreate the first page of comments here on the 28th? Thanks...

wow its been under a minuite..........
i watch the videos i dont read thru about 900 pages of comments to see if what i was going to right has already written...

that would make me as bad as you...yes you!!!
THE BOY SITTING IN HIS CHAIR HUGGING HIS YAHTZEE DOLLS WHILE STARING AT HIS PILE OF DAILY YAHTZEE FANMAIL HE HAS TO SEND OFF.
p.s you can take downn the yahtzee shrine you have because HES NOT A GOD!!!!!

But...you replied just as fast...

And it's hard not to see (even if by accident) the first page of comments, before skipping to the last.

I smell hypocrisy.

He IS a God!
He reviews games for EVERY gaming system and does not favour one over the other.
I haven't found another reviewer like that.
And the hottest thing about it is the fact he tries to talk about how bad they are.
That's right.
I said it was hot.

...
Awesome review!

he does favour one under the rest...
everytime he reviews a wii game he just compares anyone playing it to and 8 year old shouts about how much you have to move, then says crap game id rather play with shite...
p.s... congratulations you're defending yahtzee on an internet forum and are now officially a fan boy
