Sorry Jim, I can't afford the premium pack. I guess I won't have a very impressive dungeon.

I'm going for 100% completion in Minecraft - think of the dungeon I'll be able to build at the end.

I guess 100 gamerscore didn't sweeten the deal for Yahtzee doing everything. I wish I could afford the best edition as well, Jim.

Bah you won't be getting any of my money, I keep it close to my heart!

And here I thought that Jim had spent all his bile in the review he gave of the game. I guess there's always more fury when a great game's legacy is tarnished.

Why would I pay that many Euros when I only had to pay a few bucks to get the game from GOG? Oh, right, because I'm a gamer, and clearly we're idiots with a lot of money.

Sorry, but meh.

I couldn't stand Jim's echo. I'll admit I like his written review though.

I can't wait until someone at EA goes "In hindsight, maybe that wasn't the best decision..."

It'll take years and ruthless reshuffling around EA Mythic, but I'm sure it'll happen.

Ooh... no. That is a shockingly naive benefit-of-the-doubt you're handing out. What'll actually, more likely, happen is that:

10: The current CEO will finally be fired and be given a severance package filled with more money than the city of Flint, Michigan will see in a year.
20: The next CEO, in a press conference, will lump up every bad business decision EA makes as only failing because of the incompetence of the former CEO.
30: The now-current CEO will continue said business practices, taking them to new depths of greed.
40: Go to 10.

So Yahtzee's poem was about the futility of achievement, in video games and life? But Jim, your poem was just awesome! I first thought by your mask you were inspired by MovieBob's "The Devil You Know" videos. Then you got to the end and revealed we can't do much Dungeon Keeping without paying more! If I find out they did the same thing to the newest Evil Genius game, I'll be pissed!

I feel like they name these after Jim's whenever they can because they don't know if the next time it'll be batshit insane.

I'd love to say this is depressingly cynical, and it probably is, but it does feel like it's a little more germane with the truth of the situation...

Even though an ending most predictable.
What has happened to the keeper unforgivable!
May we hope the War for the Overworld makes claim of those so despicable!

Hardest choice yet, but Jim takes the crown for pure cheek (although he was quite hard to understand).

Jims social commentary spot on as always

But dungeon keeper was released in 1999 And noone wants to play games that are more than 2 years old

P.S. actually Dungeon keeper does actually play quite poorly on new hardware. the first one does not even load and second one has horrible menu lag (anything to do with text will cuase you lag). but despair not, there is a mod called KeeperFX that makes it run on W7 64 bit flawlessly (the first dungeon keeper).

Yahtzee made some real poetry this week; like you'd find in a poetry class.

Man EA has to do something to be the 3 time running " Worst company in the world"

Really though you go through tons and tons of stuff to "Improve" Your image and then Back to back Battlefield 4 " No one in play testing had any problem with save files getting deleted" and this to get back down into the dirt.
