Im glad he explained why he used that weird accent in last weeks review in the last 5 seconds of this review lol

cool new video but why are so many people banned for those posts??

They posted their "lolllzlz I LOVE YTAHAZEEE" before they could have even finished watching the actual video. The video was up around noon, lasted 5 minutes and there's people commenting on it by 12:01

*nods and shines hammer*

I've always wondered, is there a competition to see who can ban/suspend the most amount of people on these threads, or do you just take turns?

Naw, it's just whoever gets to the thread first. I just happened to refresh my screen at the right time. We really don't like banning people at all but some people just don't learn until you smash them in the avatar with a glowing banhammer.

@the end; or because one of the voice actors is the same as the one who does Bender on futurama

garghle, he forgot to mention the on-rails shooting gallery feel of the whole ordeal!

hahahaha, chest high walls and the shawshank references were the best. (Edit: Did no one else really get the shawshank reference?)

nothing on how you can't see crap in the game because your character takes up half the screen?

BlueInkAlchemist:
A return to the flippity glombo spletch. Seriously, this feels a lot more like a legitimate review than four minutes of hilarious cynical ragging. I had a feeling he was going to dislike it based solely on the big tough "space marines" in ridiculous suits of powered armor fighting waves of monsters who are monstrously thick, but what I didn't expect were the more subtle gay jokes (in comparison to, say, Army of Two), Freud (FNARR FNARR made me laugh) and Will Smith.

And even if Cliffy B got a big "Fuck You," I'm sure Yahtzee still considers him an extremely sexy man.

Very good, quite funny, will watch again.

Agreed.

Innuendo? In-YOUR-endo!...

Mrs. Saunders: "Oh dear, I see that overfed rooster of yours has fallen over and got a concussion Mr. Gimley! Need some help?"

Mr. Gimley: "Yes Mrs. Sanders, grab my big fat cock and and give it's throbbing head a rub will you?"

Finbar Saunders: "FNARR FNARR".

Keep up the grand work Yahtzee. :D

If I knew he was going to read these posts I would have asked him to review Gears 2 a long time ago, instead of Tomb Raider Underworld that everyone knew has going to suck in the first place, after all, the newer they are the worse they get.

Episodes like this one are perfect examples of why I love Zero Punctuation.

Holy Christ this was funny! My brother couldn't stop laughing at the giant chins part or the half a car bit.

Keep up the good work! Pie we can! Pie we can!

Good review, think I might have to try the game. I'm glad he explained that terrible accent from last week, and hope he never repeats it.

funny (yay my first Zero Punctuation post)

Well Yahtzee, if it makes you feel better,

that was the best zp in a long time

One of my favorites. recently I've felt that Yahtzee has been hit and miss with most of it, but this actually was a review that mentioned the good with the bad and didn't just rape us through one ear and out the other. Assuming Yahtzee even bothers to read these bloody things I would recommend to continue in this vein.

and the Alien = good = bad bit was funny as hell.

Ah yes the most wonderful ai ever, kinda similar to l4d ai

explained? are you really so outright retarded that you need it explained to you? i mean he said if you do not count having a hilarious african accent as a mutation right when he started with the accents that SHOULD (note should meaning that it didnt due to internets crazy amounts of retarded fuckhead. I say DO MORE ACCENTS AND CONFUSE THE MASSES!!!!!

good review, loved the way he spoke about the fail A.I. by the sounds of it it seems like its nearly as retarded as the people who always get temp bans for posting comments before theyve had a chance to watch the video like the 4 or 5 guys on page 1 lol

Hamster at Dawn:
This review reflects my thoughts on the game exactly. Even with all its flaws, Gears of War 2 is an enjoyable game. I personally only play in coop though because, as mentioned, the AI is useless and will sometimes run out and get killed thus forcing you to reload a checkpoint.

Is it difficult to form your own opinions on a game without Yahtzee telling you what to think?

Mighdas:
Well Yahtzee, if it makes you feel better, Dom ends up killing his wife in the end...

Nice, it's called a spoiler. You just have to put "spoiler" at the beginning and "/spoiler" at the end with each enclosed by '[' ']'.

Yes, unlike in any other linear shooter.

Odoylerules360:
the chest-high-walls were glaringly obvious in the first one too.
I like active reloading, even though it is a QTE.

And it's good to see people getting banned for commenting before they watch the video.

It's not really a quick time event. By that standard shooting when an enemy comes out of cover is a quick time event.

Quick time events are generally integral to the progression in the game, for example if you don't press a button at the correct time your character dies.

I think this episode is pretty much everything ZP needs to be; there's no blabby-blabby-bullshit in the beginning and Yahtzee does what he is supposed to do: picks every single bad thing about it and then beats it brutally to death with them (though not as brutally as he could, but we saw what that means in Sonic Unleashed). And the triple-cunted hooker joke was actually quite appropriate, because like CoD4, this is also an extremely popular mainstream shooter which has received tons of praise.

I would have to imagine they were baned for posting pointless twadle. The kinde of genaric comments that are only intended to usurp the coveted "first one to post" award. Who wants to read retarded statements like "loved it", "great", & "watched it". Good for you trained monkeys, but why did you like it or is that to complicated a thought process. I think Yatzee or whoever band those posts was hoping for more intelligent comments then what you find on YouTube, and if so can you realy blame the moderator?

nice. great to see that there are games that Yahtzee even likes. haven't really played it myself but maybe someday...

yup, all the game is is chest high walls...

Hilarious!!!

Fuck man! Spoiler tags, I hadn't reached that yet.

Nope I thought SR was one of those fabled 'gender-neutral' movies (so not just for girls, or is that the joke? <.<)

lol, i dont get it. Its about a man who struggles to survive in prison, so i dont see how thats for girls whatsoever. But the reference goes perfectly with the whole "happy ending" topic that Yahtzee was talking about.

Funny, but I usually have to watch it twice to get most of the jokes, he talks fast man.

Having only played GoW 2 for 2 hours or so, Yahtzee seemed to acknowledge all my views on the game. And as always, it was done with bitter style.
5 tophats for you, sir.

Is it just me or does Yahtzee fail to mention the multiplayer yet again?
I dont really mind but its just that other people babbled on the whole review about "Horde Mode" or what not

btw What the hell was in the background when he said about the "squishy" level?

Epic fails now adays, even more so when GOW PC hit its DRM "expiration date"..... crap designs and games made for casual gamers gotta love modern gaming...

MP is over rated, it should never replace a solid SP experience for a SP based game... .
