meh, didnt find it funny myself...valid points though, Yahtzee doesn't seem to get UGC, the point is that there WILL be an extortianite amount of sh*t, but saturated with brilliance

Saturated isn't really the right word. Maybe... lightly dabbed with the corner of a handkerchief? I really like the idea of letting people create their own stuff, but I also agree heartily with him here. To me, though, the best part wouldn't be making other people see your stuff, it would be sharing with friends or keeping it for yourself.

All in all, though, I think this may have been the least reviewy of his reviews yet. I felt very empty about the result, even though I laughed. I don't feel like I know a single thing more about the game that I didn't know already. However, I loved the fake-out with googly-eye-ass-face. It makes you think for just that brief minute that he completely ignored the idea of do-it-yourself stuff in the game.

I was just wondering why he never brought up user made content even though he mentioned it in another review, but then after I was traumatized by the...dancing... "OH FUCK SORRY." I lol'd pretty hard.

I disagree with his stance on it a tiny bit, because that game is so goddamn cute and the ability to create levels made me actually wish I had a PS3, although I do know what he means by a river of bad designs to wade through. It's like on a website where you give people the ability to create their own avatars; some will be beautiful blends of color and themes that make your eyes fall out to lovingly make out with the screen, but for every one of those people there will be 10,000 more users who just slap on the starter items and expect a boatload of compliments.

Great review. Game looks terrible, I'd rather play a game that involves controlling Yahtzee's googly eyed ass with a DDR pad.

GREAT review, really. Getting better & better.

I didn't find this review quite as funny as some of the other ones - I guess the heat is getting to Yahtzee's brain just like it is to mine. Yeah, the heat sucks. Not badly made up for, but still kinda poor - for Yahtzee. The eyed boxers was a serious wtf moment, but the ranting seems to be Yahtzee's usual. He notes himself that he doesn't feel inspired to say much about the game and finds it difficult because it's hot, so I just hope he gets his aircon fixed before the next release.

This review took a while to actually get into the review.

I have to say that I'm really shocked at the review, it was still funny but I guess this is what happens when you are grasping at straws looking to say something about the game but when there is little to nothing to say.

First time posting and I'm coming onto a ZP forum, I must be insane. A hilarious and biting review, as always. The point about user-created content was a good one. I think developers of games like LBP are thinking that all gamers are like me: ie, obsessive-compulsives with considerable creativity but no work ethic, who have so much fun fooling around with creating their own levels/characters/enemies etc. that it never enters their heads to "sully" the beautiful creations with juvenile humor. But most gamers, after the novelty wears off-about 30 seconds in some cases, I should think-will jump right into abusing the UCC feature in any and all ways possible.

More and more I think Yahtzee actually is a disappointment to his parents, he cracks more jokes about him with various men than most people would be comfortable with (Filipino boys this time)

Great, more nightmare fuel. Just what I needed.

Good stuff, lol'd heartily. Would watch again.

How come he sometimes doesn't make fun of the big things to make fun of: then again sometimes he likes the horrible things that should be made fun of: like grass-cutting minigames.

I thought LBP was pretty average too which is why I thought the ZP review would be hilarious; not equally average.

I hope he knows we don't count on him to give us relevant and informative reviews (at least I haven't since his No More Heroes review); we just want him to be funny.

I'd like to think that was Yahtzee's bum with the googly eyes on it, because it would explain a lot about his personality. I think I would be pretty cynical if I had eyes growing out of my bum. Think of the things you'd see! Not to mention the pain of sitting down.

Anyway, the review was average, if a bit dodgy. Yahtzee reminded me of the lovable dog with the shrapnel it its brain, running back and forth between pleasing the faithful fanbase and throwing a mediocre game through the wringer. He seems to be caring a bit more about the feelings of the viewers, and I guess that's alright, but I think I prefer the reviews in which he was so offensive and off-the-wall that he could make you laugh while you wanted to punch him in the dick.

I want underwear like that... Seriously, who do I have to kill to get some?

Well, aside from Yahtzee's ass calling me after the video was over and whispering "Seven days", I enjoyed this review.

I think maybe he actually liked LBP a little, but he's got a point. There really isn't much you can say about it. He didn't have much to work with.

Yet another game, Yahtzee just can't admit is GOOD

Great review, took me along time to see it though. I tried to watch it at 5 and couldn't get it to load until now. Still it was worth it, hilarious as usual. Can't wait for next weeks video.

A sub-par review today, i never have had the urge to pick up LBP as i'm not much of a platformer gamer but then again i didn't think i'd like psychonauts so maybe i'll give it a shot.....when i get a PS3....so i won't happen never mind

Was it just me or did Yahtzee's eyes seem different this week?

It must be that living in Australia is starting to rub off on him, (unless it was some subtle joke I didn't get).

StarryXNights:
Today's episode contained more bile than usual and didn't include such fast conversation. Personally I think Yahtzee has finally lost the plot, which is not necessarily a bad thing.

Thats not quite fair, do you how how hot it is in Austraila at the moment? I have family over there and its hell in the city, up wake up shower then 5 mins later you will be dripping Its so hot they've been having power cuts.

Hum, this was probaly one of the worst ZP's, over all not funny and it just didnt make much sense, its based more of a stereotypical view of LBP rather then the experience you get from playing it. I mean saying that gamers will instantly abuse any form of content they can make themselfs isnt a problem LBP has ever suffered from, you'll be hard streched to find obscene levels, saying that you're forced to search through all the crap to find decent levels is also stereotypical BS because the highest rated most played levels are the ones that are put straight to the top, the search system also works perfectly, and saying that the mods delete anything they dont like is also wrong, again based of a stupid stereotype LBP has, the true being that mods only check levels flaged by other users, LBP is full of copywrite breaking stuff thats been there for ages, they havnt been reported by users so they havnt been taken down, simple as.

Its really easy to see when Yahtzee simpley dosnt play the games he's 'reviewing' fully, he should probaly actually try every part of a game instead of squirting out random crap he's heard around the web.

Not his usual quality. Though at the same time I did like the sight seeing underpants.

Wow, I was sure he would givethis one the worst review ever, but It came preety good.

I had heard moderately good things about LBP before nothing that made me go WOW I need to get a PS3 so I can play that! This was more of that really.

Emmitt_Nervend:
I wonder if that was Yahtzee's ass shaking.

Wouldn't put it past Yahtzee to shake his own ass at us.

A great review, I found Little Big Planet enormously entertaining, for the simple reason that it's really funny to fuck people over, especially on that snowboard level: I would slap everyone else off when we got going, and they would hit the electrified platforms...

At this point, I really wonder why people bother posting their thoughts when the most they could have watched of the review is 2 minutes. You people know Yahtzee will lob the ban hammer at you, so what's the point?

Grenbyron:

Maybe he was serious that his AC is busted.

In recent weeks I've started to resent Yahtzee's reviews. I know he isn't a legitimate reviewer and he just shits on games for shits & giggles. But at least try and get it right once in a while man.

Even I was skeptical at first about LBP. Until my brother bought it for me for Christmas. So I popped it in and thought "Well, it's got good reviews...maybe it'll be good". I cannot stop playing this game. It is the most fun I've ever had with a game since Portal. Part of it is it's aesthetic. It's refreshing to have a good game these days that doesn't require you horribly mutilate your enemies to death (*cough* Gears of War 2 *cough*). Yeah it isn't "3D" and the jumping sucks, but still that's nothing a patch can't fix, and hardly enough of a reason for someone to declare a game "bad".

And I'm willing to bet money that Yahtzee didn't actually PLAY any of the custom levels. Sure we're not PROFESSIONALS at designing levels. But you know what, there are some DAMN GOOD custom levels out there, and your rationale for not trying them is "not done by a professional".

Honestly, these videos have gone from funny to angry video game nerd 2.0 to social recluse. Your videos have become hollow. We're all waiting for the point as to why you declare a game good or bad, but you just say whether Game X is good or bad, and then the video is over. And it isn't just LBP, you did it last week with Gears of War 2 as well.

PAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA *breath* HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!!
Awesome review, and hell-funny arse dance :D
That bit at the end made me think of 1213 with the bispectical dude.
All in all a great review :D
I still don't think I'll be buying the game though.

can any body say fanboy attack put red ring of death on this review(hes from the g4 tv, the feed blog)he would attack this review with blind rage with a container of pudding

I think this is one of the best ones I've seen :).

Especially considering the googly eyed boxers part, that was pretty priceless.

Likewise he said absolutely everything that could be said about LBP without being redundant which is the big issue with gaming reviews these days, they try to fill out a magazine page with a review and just end up saying the same thing 6 different ways."

"The Level Design was Amazing."
"Likewise it had amazing level design."
"They designed amazing levels."
"Amazing Levels were Designed for this game."

It gets tedious and I like that he evades that through most of his reviews by having genuinely new things to say.

Am I the only one that can look at someone elses honest opinion of a game and not get angsty? I like LBP too but what he said is still pretty spot on.

I mean on any given day you can find 6 dozen LBP versions of 9/11, mario level rehashes, and the likes. It's not a bad thing, but it is good. Likewise I don't think he ever said it was bad, in fact he used a smiley face sun quite a few times.

Likewise these responses are pretty stereotypical anywhere that dares not speak about LBP like its the next messiah.

Yes it was a good game, in fact its probably one of the only legitimate reasons to own a PS3, but still it isn't the greatest thing ever.

As I said before I haven't been to hard stretched finding 9/11 levels which are about as obscene as things get for me. (Joking about the deaths of what...two thousand + people?)

Plus again he gave the game a great review, he just nailed the User Generated Content.

My interwebs doesn't play the 0 punctuation vids on the day there uploaded.

Halp!

FANBOY ATTACK HIDE YATZEE TO THE GARRAGE MADE OF PUDDING

Somehow it wasn't as good as it usually is.
Or I just like LBP so much I was on a defensive state all during the review...

Not too fond of the review itself, but that ass shaking bit and the ending made up for it.

I actually didn't laugh at this one. I was a bit lolz at the googly eyed pants but after a bit it looked stupid. And the game wasn't the best. Maybe i would try it on a friends PS3 but i wouldn't get it for myself.

Am I the only person in the world that looks at LBP and does not see a gift from the heavens sent down to save the PS3?

I don't know, I just can't get my mind wrapped around how user-designed levels and cutesy mascots makes for the gaming equivalent of ambrosia.

Maybe it's just my hyper-intelligent train of thought that sees simplicity as a cop-out and would much rather my gaming experience be one of broad characterization and story-telling with some fun action and humor balancing it out.

Or maybe I'm just jaded that this is another step towards more balance-beam bullcrap.

O.o ...I...I don't know if I want to scrub that intermission from my mind or not...so disturbing and entertaining at the same time.
