michelhulst:
any suggestions?

Works for me. I'm guessing your video player got corrupted or something. I'm not sure if those error messages belong to Windows Media or Quicktime or what.

[Edit: A quick Google search reveals you're running something called Adobe FlowPlayer, which is one heck of a weird video player, I'm not surprised you're having difficulty running things. I recommend uninstalling it and getting one that's not so proprietary, like Windows Media Player or whatever works for your system.]

[Edit Edit: Then again, it's not a problem with what you've installed at all. My thinking is Adobe FlowPlayer is what the website is using to distribute the video. Chances are you're encountering this error because The Escapist is currently being hit by a lot of traffic to view this video. Wait for awhile and try again.]

Yahtzee is getting so insufferably lazy recently. First that bullshit 'Year In Review' which consisted entirely of 5 minutes of jokes taken out of context and now 'Awards for 2008'? I mean seriously? Yahtzee's recent works, with the exception of his Prince of Persia review, have been nothing but half-assed compilations which mean he doesn't have to do any proper work for that week.

Oh yeah, and I'll have a medium ban, with chips and curry sauce. And a Diet Coke.

Anyone else not getting the video to play?

Huh. It seems the new player won't work for me.

wow didnt see that coming. oh well

Thanks yathzee for spoiling the end for PoP... Yes he did spoil it, because I figured out what will happen by what he said. You have to be thick to not know which person he is talking about and what the prince is trying to do.

Monkfish Acc.:
Huh. It seems the new player won't work for me.

Same here:

200, Stream not found, NetStream.Play.StreamNotFound, clip: '[Clip] '486''

That's the error I get when I try to play the video.

That was pretty funny. But your editing was a little off on this one. Their were a few wierd cuts.

I'm pretty sure what's happening is that the Escapist is currently being hit by a lot of traffic to view this video. Wait for awhile and try again. It plays for me just fine, but then, I already downloaded it and it's in my cache.

Yep, that's the one.

I wish he would just review something I don't like these clip shows, they kinda suck.

I haven't commented on a Yahtzee post in a long time, I stopped myself from defending Mirror's Edge, and Dead Space. I didn't say anything to the "year in review" garbage, but give me a break Ben... one review in 3 weeks?? You really are slipping. Not to mention I had to listen to that godawful nu-metal garbage you have for a theme song not once but like 6 or 7 times.

P.S. Game of the year goes to Valkyria Chronicles imho.

I keep getting an error ""stream not found"" >_<

I want to watch too but the vids down from here aswell:(

also geldonyetitch think thoughts inside the brain... please.

I agree with the praise to Saints Row 2 being the most fun game this year but I still think it's strange he missed some of the biggest releases and reviewed pap I'd never even heard of.

Hmm, wasn't worth it really, was it? Oh, and having FACT in caps for a name isn't really going to convince us that you are, in fact, a fact.

Would you like to explain what you see wrong with Yahtzee's latest web-video thingies? I have time, given the video won't currently load.

That was pretty corny. Especially that thing at the end.

This video not loading for anyone else?

*edit*

Said exact same as above poster, didnt realise it was over multiple pages my bad

In response then, no its not working for me either lol

FACT.50 = Factory Records Catalog #50 (Movement) New Order's first LP after dissolving Joy Division.

It's also my DJ name. The way it appears on the album is indeed 'FACT'

And I did state what my problem is with his current videos. They aren't game reviews. In fact his game reviews for the past 3 months or so have generally been of poor quality. But my biggest problem is his followers. they take his word as bond, and don't even bother to check out some of these games for themselves.

Are you Yahtzee's personal fucking nut-rider or something?

Nope, I just get annoyed at agronant 9 year olds like him, and from the sounds of things, you.

Avida:

Me - seems as if the bandwidth is gone over the top or something.

WTF are you talking about? How do I come off as a 9 year old? First of all how many 9 years olds have the attention span to compose more than a sentence or some retarded "In first Woohoo" bullshit?

dude you were gonna defend the latest one even though you haven't seen it yet, there's nothing wrong with it but that's some blind devotion you got there

"Agronant", eh? Might want to check your spelling next time before making remarks about peoples' age, junior.

Bandwidth over the top, jeez these videos are normally released at 5, i haven't checked if thats the same for this one but surely 2 and 3/4 hours is enough of a cool down period.

I think it's a problem with the video player; none of the older videos are working either.

Well, I was surprised that he didn't make a fuss about how "unbelievable awsome" GTA 4 was. To be quite honest Im thrilled he didn't, cause it would be like saying - I love it cause everyone else does.

And yes, Mirror's Edge was impressive to begin with; but come on! It's like looping the same bloody picture over and over..

No gears of war 2 review - makes me sad, as I thought the game was pretty good. Blood and lag - woopdidu.

Let's just hope 09 has something more to offer than a new loop of sequals..

I wasn't defending the video, I was asking what was wrong with it. "Its not a review" isn't very critic, nor is "Its poor quality". Specifics as to what's wrong with it and them would be nice, like "I feel he's recycling his jokes too much" or "I find his style of humour boring now" rather than "I don't like it! Rubbish!"

I would like to apologize somewhat to FACT.50 though - its when I saw this post that the 9 years old comment came to mind.

Verd, just because someone likes something, doesn't mean they have sexual favours from them - you might work like that, but thats not my business. Also, why is calling me gay considered an insult? You homophobic? Anyway, resorting to swear words on this forum is generally a sign you haven't been here long, or are under the drinking age by a large margin. Or both.

Video is still not working here and I'm starting to think it has nothing to do with the Bandwith and rather with the new player. All the older videos stopped working as well. Anyone here with some technical skills that knows how to fix this weird issue?

Same heare no ZP vids working

Uh-huh. Try getting back to me when spelling simple words like 'arrogant' isn't beyond your capabilities, kiddo. Until then, you're a waste of my time and everybody else's - you're already disliked and riding Yahtzee's balls every few minutes doesn't seem to be helping that much.

The new player is FlowPlayer (http://www.flowplayer.org/) which is normally pretty good, so my guess is that there's some configuration error. Either that or ZP generates such a huge bandwidth hit that they decided to store the video content somewhere a bit too cheap. :-/

Dabamash:
Not bad, but I prefer game reviews. It's quite dissapointing when there isn't a proper review after waiting a week.

mathias53:
Cut out these fucking award shows and clip shows. I came here to see Yahtzee review a video game and thats what i want to bloody see.

Because Yahtzee owes you anything? You pay copious amounts of money to see him every week?

Fanboys grr
