Braid

Yahtzee takes on Braid, the long-awaited indie darling finally available on Xbox Live.

Watch Video

Awesomeness, great video, I blame me too for all teh crappy games that are out now.

Great video, i have Yahtzee added on xbox live and i saw his implaying this title, somehow i knew this would be next :) Go Yahtzee

I totally called this. My friend was positive it was gonna be a Too Human review.
Who's the boom king?

Great review Yahtzee!

Hahah! another great job!

"Master Chief Novelty Condoms"

Forget the clever t-shirt, you have a much MUCH better product to get out there and sell and get rich off of.

I love how people comment on a video that hasn't been up long enough for them to even start watching it. STFU and watch before you comment.

Extremely good as usual :D

Hmmm, good story criticism for once, I was shocked.

Now to wait for the inevitable sequel that waters down everything we loved about the first one, while trying to add unnecessary new mechanics that make us ache for the Braid of yester-year.

brilliant as usual

This is gonna start a tornado from the teabaggers, but I think it's his best one so far.

Pure amazingness, filled to the brim with creamy truth. I'm gonna shut up now, because I realize how creepy that sounded.

Funny stuff, love Braid and honestly the price tag was worth it. Loved the rant you did at the start of your video.. Certainly now among my top ZPs.

Thanks much for the heads up on a game I might otherwise have missed seeing completely.

Very funny, though it ultimately said extremely little about the game.

Well my name being Adrian that scared the shit out of me haha

My sentiments exactly. :D

I greatly enjoyed the demo, short as it was. I'm sure I'll get around to downloading this game when I get paid. I don't think $15 is too much for a game that is this fun, but it is more than I have to spend on a game right now.

Excellent work Yahtzee! I wonder if the story and gameplay ever get seperation anxiety?

Given it's similarity to Portal, I expected(hoped) this would be reviewed at one point

great as usual, so I may have to pick this up next time I get some points to fiddle with.

Brilliant!

Big LOL @ "nice beaches tax"

This review felt a little short but whatever. good job yahtzee

good review, return to form with the jokes, as some have been a bit weak recently. Rant was quality!

Great little double-entendre snuck in there:

"and then it's back to text boxes which leave me confused and unsatisfied, which incidentally is how my girlfriend feels most nights and I refuse to accept that it's just because I'm THICK."

I lol'd.

Is this the first gaming-related website you've perused since the game came out or something? You can't throw a brick without someone gushing over the game.

To answer Yahtzee's nitpick.
The reason some doors do not open, you'll notice it's only in the "Time and Place" world, is because you're approaching the door from the right (walking left towards it).
If you recall, walking left reverses the flow of time. For the same reason that jumping left on top of a goomba doesn't kill it, walking left with a key into a door doesn't open it. The game's rules of cause and effect require that time be flowing forward.

I agree that this particular mechanic was a little tedious and ultimately added very little to the gameplay, but it was far from an arbitrary mechanic, it served to illustrate one of the consequences of that particular time manipulation theme.

When shitier games cost three times the price of braid, I don't understand how you can complain.

So what type of tax do we pay at fucking UK? Too much rain? Uglier women? Oh fuck, we are just being robbed then!

having the nicest beaches tax, classic!

Now i just need to find a reason why us brits pay twice as much as the americans, our beaches are brown.

I was eating corn flakes when I watched this... and well.. let's just say that half the bowl came out of my nose :S This was BRILLIANT pretty good! Maybe because yahtzee has some points of view that are similar to mine. Well, only 7 days till the next episode ^^

Not a bad review, though I was somewhat disappointed that he tried to garner so much negativity when he admitted that he actually liked the game. If he liked it so much, why focus on the nitpicking?

Ripping a bad game is hilarious, but bitching about nitpicks is just annoying. Just like the Portal review, it's okay to say, "Finally, a game that did something right."

I love how people get bitter that they weren't one of the first people to post.

We pay the 'Bitch to the banks' tax. And we like it! Now bow!
