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.

"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,

Regardless of anything else, why the do you want your name to be FuckYouDad? Do you always use FuckYouDad as a screename? Or do you have some bizarre reasoning, that it will make you a more feared and venerated voice of reason?

I loved this one particularly, the bad guy dropping his laundry and chasing the character with a monster truck.

I liked the accent shifts, but it got rather dull towards the end... like Far Cry 2.

FUCK YOU STEPHEN

Sorry, but that bit was awesome.

I didn't really find this one funny. The one exception being the part where the rabbit got it's entire body bitten off XD.

Can't wait for Gears of War 2 next week =D

Glad to hear I saved my $50 for something that was actually fun (Read: 2 Castlevanias for the DS). Then again, I am a bit biased towards Vampire slaughtering over going to Africa to do missions for crazies.

I did not like the accent. The rest of the review was funny and what I have come to expect from ZP. The accent was funny the first time it was used, but unlike other ZP running gags it got tire some. I could not understand what was being said and rewound the review several times to make sure I heard right. IMO Yahtzee should stick to talking clearly and dropping visual gags.

Good review.

I'm probably about as far as Yahtzee is in the game. I can't play it for more than an hour or two at a time because it's so repetitive. The open world to explore is there, but there really isn't any reason to explore it. It's not like Fallout 3 where you can find useful items or weapons. All you can find in Far Cry 2 are the diamonds you can use to unlock weapons, but you can get more diamonds faster by just doing the repetitive missions.

Eh, I'll probably finish it eventually. Oh, and the every-single-AI-in-the-game-trying-to-kill-you-on-sight-for-no-reason-at-all thing gets really annoying really fast...

Pyronox:
Seems like Yahtzee can't really make up his mind on this one. I'll pick it up anyway cause I've been looking for a realistic shooter for a looooooong time now.

This si not a realsitic shooter- you can do mcuh better. If your a Pc gamer then pick up stalker - if your not then i dont know of any on 360.

I loved the accent. Afican seemed to be the only one missing from the game.

Excellent review here - and an automatic win for Zordon reference to give us a little cherished nostalgia and likely inspire a few new avatars. I do think the accent wasn't used to the best effect though, schizophrenically hopping around at the second half of the review.

Lot of good gaming points here - I've been swayed by how utterly pretty FarCry 2, but in my limited experience I agree with the discouraging lack of narrative working for both sides provides. I'll stick with Fallout 3 I believe.

So how many people want to bet on next week being a brief mention of Gears of War 2?

Not really, I haven't chosen this name anywhere else. I like to spread my names around. It's more a parody of the angry suburban adolescent rebelling against his family. I think it's more fun than "SpagettiPants89".

More importantly, does it matter? Also, do you have any reason for naming yourself "Mousecoloured fox"?

These 'reviews' get worse and worse every week.

lol in no way shape or form is that accent Australian. Much like that intollerable little boy in the simpsons episode where they go to Australia.
Aussies is Aussies, makes my ears bleed hearing immitations.

(Written to the people who commented he sounded Australian.)

BlueInkAlchemist:
This is more of the blurghedy blurgh blurgh that some people said was missing from last week's ZP. It feels more like a review and less like a decent into cheap laughs about body parts.

Indeed - though to be fair, he boldfacedly said in the last review that there wasn't much point in talking about the gameplay since it's the exact same as every other Tomb Raider game.

i laughed REAL HARD AT THE BEAR GRYLS PART ?

Look elsewhere. This isn't one of them.

Good review. I never liked cry engine games, and it would appear that Far Cry 2 would infuriate me even more than the other two.

The accent is mildly annoying and I hope he goes back. I could barely understand him in some parts of the review...

I remember having issues with Far Cry 2 about the time i was waiting for the pub to open, on the dilemma of whether my laziness would allow me to drive all the way back to the hut to sleep and speed up time, or just wait it out.

My sentiments exactly, although, Yahtzee is a bit more eloquent than I am, and much more talented with the South African accent.

Is it me, or is his voice a bit off this time?

Great vid as ever, i loved his blisteringly awfull south african accent

also am i the only person on this forum who actually DOES like Far Cry 2 ?

whats with the university badge?

Damn it's like he is working of a hitlist, he mentioned Farcry, Tombraider and Gears in his 2008 review and he is wrapping the year up. Be expecting Gears of war 2 next week.

good enough but what the hell was the meaning of saying "E" instead of "A" during the whole episode?

I didnt really laugh at the the so called "review" but it was still entertaining and worth my time.

Very funny. I loved the "Hey I did your laundry and baked you a cake" bit.

*sigh* nobody ever gets the more 'subtle' jokes.
Perhaps next time you would be well advised Ben to just post a big
"I AM PUTTING ON AN ACCENT TO MOCK THE ONES IN THE GAME"
sign down the bottom of the review, as it seems tis the only way that
these jokes actually hit home.

I loved it! I mean, where I come from, accents change by the street and how you sound makes a difference in how the people across the street (or the sidewalk) react to you.

Gears of War next? I mean, he already bumped off Tomb Raider. How many more did he miss this past month?

Sucks that we have to wait until December 2nd for God of War III....and Zero Punc review.

Hehe, clever, he quoted apocalypse now - which is also boring.

Zordon + "Fuck You Stripey Hooorse" = Win. Loved the accent, am I the only one who could hear the aussie kid of the episode of the simpsons? "Et waz en imergency call from the dreenege commission in spreenfield"

Loved the review, though I thought the engine Far Cry 2 runs on is called Dunia...I remember there was a feature on it in Game Informer, and that was one of the standout details in it.
Other than that little nitpick, great job.

What the hell is wrong with his voice? It sounds like he had been eating only peanut butter for the past 2 days and had inflated his lips.

In this episode, Yahtzee is apparently trying to make us glad he doesn't have an even more inscrutable accent.

Did anyone else here a police siren in the background?

Keep the Micheal Atkinson jokes coming!

lol

Schiggy:

No ur not the only one, makes my ears bleed listening to that dam kid..Worst immitation ever!
