what happened man your reviews suck i could pull a better one out of my ass

Then do it. I want to see your anal excretion top Australia's funniest nerd.

force unleashed is the star wars game we been waiting for, a game that make more use of the force then any others

i agree that Bionic commando is a right pile of shite, but Castle crashers is great fun.
funny review as always nazi boy

It was a pretty good review, much better than spore for examp,e - maybe you people are getting bored of his reviews because you've seen them so often - take a 2 months break or something and then watch them, I bet they'd be hilarious again.

Nice review.

NewClassic:

Why do people hate on Wind Waker so much, was it the cel-shading?

i think so.

What an inspiring piece of vitriol. I shall start using the phrase "diminutive cunts" with much haste.

I didn't like it because I found it rediculously easy, the closest I came to dying in that game was when I torn apart after picking on some pigs a little too much.

I also couldnt help that being dropped down in a massive ocean with no clue on where to go was nintendo plan to make more money selling tons of stategy guides.

as for games being to easy now a days, lets go back to a zelda.. here are some bombs you can put them to good use. Oh look over at that wall there that has a giant crack in it that looks like it's made out of construction paper. wink wink...

use to be but not lately

Super Mario 64 > actual Sunshine.

I get what he's saying with twilight princess and sunshine being better than ocarina of time and super mario 64. They are more refined games with better graphics and gameplay elements. However, the reason that ocarina of time and super mario 64 are regarded as better games is due to the fact that when those games came out they were unlike anything else we'd ever seen. They changed things. They were new and different and from that model hundreds of other games were made. It's unfair to judge old games by the standards of today, you to take into account what it was like during the time that it was released.

Bahahahahaha.

I had a ZX Spectrum.

BURN THE COMMODORE OWNING HERETIC!

Didn't think the review was the best, still made me chuckle that is until he said "I think Hitler was right" which made me fall off my chair with laughter (teach me for leaning back on it really).

At this point it's impossible not to notice that Yahtzee contradicts himself every week now. He hates long grinding JRPGs with dialogue but professes to love Earthbound. He hates Super Mario 64 and loves Mario Sunshine, and yet he bitched about Mario Sunshine being a pale copy of Mario 64 that Mario Galaxy did better. He bitches every week that games are too easy, then complains when looking at the older games he professes to love that were frustratingly hard.

Sorry, but the schtick is about dead. The guy's just trolling now - he ran out of material and the only way he can keep putting out a video every week is to just find something else to bitch about regardless of whether he was praising it the week before.

in case you all haven't noticed
Yahtzee was being sarcastic when he said Twilight princess and sunshine were better then OoT and 64...

The hitler comment afterwards was supposed to prove that....

sheesh...

does yahtzee need a sarcasm sign???
apparently

Having loading issues...again :(

mensaap:
well yathzee u obviously haven't played fallout

cause that game still beats every other game anytime, that's made in this day and age! (except maybe team fortress 2)

I would disagree with this, mostly because I preferred Fallout 2 to its prequel, although the first was also good. Best game? Not so much.

Well, that's depressing. Graphically it was stylish and a step in a new direction. Wouldn't say it was for the best, but it was still really nice. Did beautifully on the DS, as well.

tony2077:

You'll have to excuse me for taking some liberties when correcting your grammar, but I tried to stay as true to content as I could.

That being said, this review was rather mundane when compared to some his others, but when referring just to the recent reviews, this one does a pretty clever job of staying on top of the game. Certainly still clever and entertaining, and worth the few minutes it took for me to watch it.

But, if you are persistent in trawling a superior review from your hind-quarters, I might make the suggestion of using spell-check, an editor, and a quick brushing up on your grammar.

Then, go ahead and post it up in the Review section. Take your time, but I'll be waiting for it.

1st:- He said he like Earthbound because it was so different to most JRPG's with a funky storyline and all that.

2nd:- He said Sunshine was better than 64 not that he liked it.

3rd:- And yeah so what. Alot of people do that. I do it all the time.

the only reason everyone thinks Mario 64 and Ocarina of Time are the best in the series is because they're the first 3D entries of the series; it's a very strange phenomenon, another good example is Final Fantasy VII, which is only really a mediocre entry.

i think megaman 9 is next in the extremely difficult, 2 button mashing, live system, retro gaming, nostalgia.

i think hitler was right too. he was demonised, just as arabs r demonised right now.

i want to play the german side of wwii games.

Hey look it's a sarcasm joke flying over all your heads! At least one or two of you are getting it.

I actually beat ye olde bionic commando and was jazzed when I heard about this. I just kind of assumed they would get rid of lives without thinking about it. I am not a kid anymore and can't devote an entire 12 hour streak to playing a game

I liked the review, but respectfully disagree on your opinion of Bionic Commando: Rearmed. It did exactly what a remake should do: added a few new tricks, updated the graphics, but overall kept the gameplay the same. Also, loved the ending, because I agree with it. Well, except for the pro-Nazi statement, obviously.

I like almost any game that is just fun. I can overlook some of the shortcomings if it keeps me interested. I guess I just don't like to nitpick too much. However, I do feel that some of today's newer games are showing a loss when it comes to an understanding of certain concepts. Artifacts are a big issue sometimes since they tend to be thrown at you, and you never feel the need to use them. Stories sometimes feel a bit empty and leave some people behind.

Not all new games are guilty and not all old games are innocent, but the point remains.

It's funny that people don't notice that right away. First I thought that he is serious but the Hitler commment proved it as you said but in the credits he said that he doesn't think that Hitler was right so maybe he was serious (of course he wasn't) with Mario Sunshine and Zelda Twilight Princess. Well who cares?

Finally saw it, wasn't as hillarious as last week for me.

I have a friend who will curse yahtzee because of this (he's addicted to megaman 9 right now)

I never played Bionic Commando when I was a child, but Retronauts made it sound cool so I got it. Mastering the controls took me all of 15 minutes so... The lives system however I agree with. Some levels are pretty fall-heavy (like the last level : /), and it was annoying to have to redo sections I had already mastered.

My biggest complaint is that it's too easy on Normal and too hard on Hard : /

I haven't played Castle Crashers, but those one-pixel-away swings are familiar to me ~~

leave my grammar alone and why would i want to review a game I'd never play xbla is full of pointless garbage and and the point of my post was saying that his reviews have gone down hill

But please don't pull it out of your ass, tony2077. That's just unhygienic.

I am sorry ZP, even though the video was great, you lost the moment you mentioned hitler.

Yahtzee Croshaw:
nostalgia is like stuffing your cheeks with cocain infused marbles in that it makes you say stupid tings.

god... you're some kind of god! Finlay someone gets it! On a side note I did like Ocarina of Time better than Twilight Princess. Probably just being sarcastic when supporting Hitler right after.

tony2077:

Then why not just say "Your reviews have gone down-hill" instead of making elaborate jokes about how they have?

The wife fingering line is fucking gold.

Now we're getting back to the classic, hilarious, hate-filled Yahtzee. Great review. It's great to see that you're not losing your touch.

The Wrath of Arthas is coming... Can't wait!
