A clip show?! A bastard clip show! What the hell! Everyone else works at Christmas you lazy bugger! Wonderful, I get a possible badge as compensation! Sweet Imperator, Escapist, at least don't insult us

For 2009 first try Call of Duty world at war. I will admit I was a fanboy of the CoD series but that recently died due to "noobish" multiplayer gameplay on CoD4, and CoD WaW hasent made me feel any better. But a neat little mini game included in it, Nazi Zombie, had me and 3 friends up till 6 in the morening haveing a sexy party made up of beer, pizza, and mutilateing goose steping zombies. I highly doubt you will like the main game(considering its almost exactly like 4 exculdeing useing tanks)but unfortunatly you have to go throught the main quest to even get to zombies but its totaly worth it.

Yahtzee takes time out of his life to please you lot. He has taken one single break this entire year, if I'm not mistaken.
He deserves one for Christmas.
Jeeze, you guys didn't bitch this much when they re-released Console Rundown.

Maybe he tried to review the new penny arcade for the ps3,
or just understood that there is nothing wrong with valkyria chronicles and he doesn't have time to play a different game.

its christmas
he's tierd
lay off, especially hypocites who are calling him lazy

Void(null):
That was almost as bad as Game Damage.

Whoa whoa. Let's not get ahead of ourselves. It was only almost as bad as Game Damage if you count murdering one person as almost as bad as the holocaust.

Game Damage was biblically bad.

Looks like somebody got lazy. Those jokes were even less funny after being taken out of context.

good for you take the holidays off is what i say you pleese us all year with your brillent mind but at least spend a little time peparing a intro (you could have worked in some good insults about clipshows) but still at least you included all the funny bits

jamesc:
Methinks he's embarresed to admit that he likes prince of persia...

PoP Trilogy was one of his favorite series and SoT was in his top 10, i doubt he is embarrassed to like it you twat

I didn't expect Yahtzee to make anything for Christmas, so i'm totally happy with my shiny new badge.

I would have much preferred a message that says "Hell no, Im not spending my vacation to review games" it wouldn't have wasted 4 min of my life...and I might have laughed.

If I'm not mistaken, he styles himself as a professional games reviewer and columnist. It's his job. If he - or the Escapist - didn't want to work, fine, I don't want to work Christmas Eve either, but a clip show is downright insulting.

Oh, and incidentally, I very much doubt that Yahtzee is doing this review lark out of charity, regardless of anything else

The first time a clip show has been funny since the simpsons put all the songs together in one episode.

Okay, this is fun. I am stumped on number 17 though... Hm. Time to watch the videos yet again.

Dammit I thought you meant a real badge. Never mind then.

The Sorrow:

That was exactly what I was going to mention. Most likely this "clip show" was put together by another staffer at The Escapist, judging by the "non-standard" credits. In the same way, the re-release of Console Rundown likely would've featured the same (copyrighted) music as the original, even if Yahtzee had started using the custom intro sequence by then.

I'm guessing Yahtzee was not involved in this in any way; either he's on the beach sipping a cool drink, or he's in bed with that cold that's been plaguing the world for the past couple weeks. I hope it's the first, and I won't begrudge him either way.

Meh. I was hoping he'd do something for the holidays, but alas, it's the holidays; yahtzee can do what he wants. Though if I were in his position I'd definitively do something special. Ah well.

EDIT: Dammit, beaten. But I agree with what was said a few posts above. This does seem like an Escapist produced rather than a Yahtzee produced thing. not that Yahtzee isn't entitled to time off - he is. It's just certainly not a year in review, and while the quotes aren't too bad, some of them are far less funny being out of context. In fact, it'd have been better to have had something saying 'Yahtzee is off this week'.

Hey can I have a hint on number one?

I'm actually astounded at the amount of bloody whinging going on in this forum? I wasn't expecting anything? Its f*ckin christmas guys!

Let the man have a break, its time to spend with your families, he'll be back next week!

Jesus...

I honestly wasn't expecting a clip show.

Somebody had better things to do than make videos for Christmas Eve:D.

Except it's not Christmas eve where he is is it? It's bloody Christmas day and still everyone is whining like little girls because it's not a great review. Where's the Christmas spirit eh? Bah.

mmm what a wonderful year it has been.

Fuck it, considering everything else he's given us weekly we can't really complain for this one instance, can we? Besides, Yahtzee has a christmas and family too.

Epic win.

Very nice review of previous reviews, and happy holidays everyone

I totally agree with you ( even if its christmas day for Yahtzee )

Yahtzee just wants to go home and have cake ( sorry couldn't resist saying )

happy holidays everyone

That was lazy but it's chrismas so I don't really blame you.

ok first game damge was good if you wern't expecting ZP again which most people seem to have (i listen to AG podcasts so i knew what it was)
also stop fucking moaning you idiots i wasnt even expecting anything today anyone that was is a selfish prick

im not saying i found the clip show amazing but hell its better than i was expecting so good lord give the guy a break.

hmm... would of preferd mabey a round up of all the games of the year wer he say wich game was the best story or combat and overall best game and so on u know like an award video/ceremony

oh and for people sayin the its chrismas day not chrismas eve just remember differnt timezones so it is chrismas eve in euopr and U.S.A

Excuse me if this gets me banned, id rather have this post deleted than that.

Sod off to all the "this was dumb", "this was boring!" people, Yahtzee has produced awesome reviews all year round, many of which have had me in stitches. The guy has produced a review every single week for a year, excuse him for wanting a single bloody week off. Hands up all those who want to work christmas........yeah I though so.

To Yahtzee, thanks for a great year of reviews, here is to a great 2009, and hopefully one in which you will find more than "2 or 3" games satisfying

Merry xmas buddy and a happy new year.

Didn't expect Yahtzee to produce anything this week at all so I guess the slide show was good.

Merry Christmas, Hanukkah, or whatever holiday you celebrate where you guys are!

well you guys might not of liekd it but i did, sure he didnt review nothing but it felt good to see some of his funnyest lines and such, i enjoyed it, all of the funniest things he said all in one show

Yay now I finally have a badge that makes me feel above others. Also, I was waiting for this all week and I am very disappointed in you, Yahtzee. Hopefully next week will be very awesome.
