Zero Punctuation: Far Cry 2

never once mentioned the AWFUL dialogue

or the constant pains of having to fix you engine as soon as someone leans on it

farcry 2 is a good game but i would have thought these little bits of spunk would have at least been worth a mention

also the accent was funny once then it just started to grate...

beautiful Yahtzee, i liked that one lol :)

I'm amazed that in the whole review he didn't try to bash the overcomplicated mapmaker.

Please don't do that accent again, it gave me terrible flashbacks of Keaun Reeves in Dracula. The Power Rangers refrence was gold by the way.

excellent, the game is not bad but it has nothing fun in it... it's like the ultimate sandbox but devoid of all imagination.
anyways loved the accent-

i agree whole heartedly with this - everything mentioned i have complained about
however he failed to mention that for a decent ammount of money you MUST explore and find collectables and how the whole game has no point since when you're meant to kill said arms dealer he says "oh good you're here, now there isn't much time and i have a job for you" and you are completely unable to go "wait? no just die" you HAVE to help the asshole...and die in the process

What was with the vowels on this one?

Funny AND it's a review! The lumpy headed mercenary bit made me crack up.

Well the review was funny but... I thought there was something wrong with my ears until I understood that he was talking in a different accent :S

I lmao'd at the zebra joke ^-^

I lol'd

I loved this one so much. The accent was a bit odd, but that just means I can justify watching it again sooner than normal.

What is that in the backround at about 2:10? A person screaming and police sirens?

Anyway. Decent review but not really funny.

I think I failed to catch half of the dialogue because I was bewildered by the constant shift in accent. Still good for a laugh though.

Haha, another great review. Kudos of featuring the first power ranger references and Bear Grylls in this review.

Lord almighty. He almost had half a review in there. Talk about story, check. Talk about graphics, check. Talk about the sandbox elements which doesn't quite add up, check. Go off on a rant on how people created content ruins the media? Ok, sure. You have a point. Aaaand... We're done? Did you like it, do you recommend it? What about controls and AI? I'm just gonna assume they're fine and dandy or do you want me to look at other reviews?

How 'bout for your next video you just say "Sure is a game!". With all the songs and hilarious notes it'll add up to one and a half minute.

And don't bother defending him people, I'll probably be banned by the mods for my name. Seems this is a "PG-13"-forum, in some strange twist of irony.

Ya those accent were all over the place, at one point he was south African, then Australian, I think I might have heard some dutch in there too.

Solid review overall. A lot of the problems I had with this game were addressed. Pity too because I liked the first Far Cry and I liked some of the concepts in this one. However, after awhile I lost of track of what I was doing and the A.I. at times seemed real thick. I liked how weapons can jam just like in real life, but it always happened when i was in the middle of a firefight and the map system was one of the dumbest I've ever seen. A hud display would've been nice, but no lets make the map system so broken it breaks up the game play every 10 seconds because you have to look at the map because you have no clue where you are. Props to the power rangers reference and the accents. Do Gears of War 2 next, please pretty please.

Shaves with a machete:
I didn't understand the whole switch of accent he went through in this review, does he have a head cold? Because that has been going around.

Did anyone actually watch the video? /sigh

He did the accent as a mockery of the cheesy South African accent he mentions is in the game. It's like one of the first jokes in the video. Listen to the part where he talks about if there are super mutants in the game.

Hm, well it isn't like him to carry on a joke that lo- oh yeah the boob people who populate the boob planet...

Superb African accent :D

Really enjoyed this one, starting to return to form perhaps?

The accent made the review a bit more funny but still decent.

That may be the thickest I've ever heard Yahtzee's accent get.

Nnnnnno. This is definitely not a PG-13 forum. Throwing around words like "cunt" and "fuck" are absolutely fine, though people will probably think less of you for it. He did mention the AI basically has one goal in mind, and that is to kill you, and only you, but other than that, he really didn't mention it, this is true.
It's an FPS though. The controls are basically always the same.
EDIT: Well, he did say the gunplay was shitty.

Haha, loved the Bear Grylls part.

Great video, the change in accent was a great joke. I agree that games do need some sort of storyline and plot, otherwise they can tend to drag on.

Look forward to next weeks.

"If you contact IT at editor@escapistmag.com and ask for a name change I'll unban you. FuckYouDad is a little too harsh for our site standards. We're kind of a PG-13 site. Keep that in mind when you're posting as well and we're all good.

Let me know if you have any other questions.

Thanks,
Tom"

Wow. ZP has really been picking up lately.

Where did the thick accent come from ;) ?

The accent switches completely ruined it for me; I was constantly disorientated, with a sudden urge to slap a certain Mr. Croshaw for stretching a half-decent joke out over the course of 3 fecking minutes.

Already did that for Fallout 3, albeit before coming back to do it properly... it still counts enough to not bother doing it again.

Can't say I got much funny out of this one, probably something to do with the accent shifting breaking my brain. Or possibly because I don't have any interest in the game. Ah well, next week then.

Good review I didn't like Farcry 2 and thought it was an annoying game I do agree with how good the enviornments were though. The shifting accent was hilarious as well, between the usual and south-african, I thought it was appropriate to the review.

Ok, the accent mide me giggle, but I wonder how Fondant's gonna tike to it?

Excellent review though.

Lawl Yahtzee must've practiced that accent all week

Rockers, and Mods?

Quadrophenia reference? Is Yahtzee a Who fan?

Also good Apocalypse Now allusion at the end.

the way yahtzee said *to choke a basking shark* is now my favorite line of his!

Definitely a Doctor Who fan.
