"i kickflipped onto the rail, grinded to the end, backflipped, cured all the worlds diseases, and still found myself 600 points shy"

i pissed myself laughing when i heard this.

Great review, totaly on board with you, keep it up.

Great review, although Skate 2 isn't something I was ever interested it, at least it confirms my suspection Skate 2 is mainly for people who enjoy skating in their daily life.

"sixaxis to wave your willy around" brilliant

Its was just pure unadulterated genius.

Powerman88:
Wednesday at noon is the highlight of my week. I do not know if that's a complement for Yahtzee or a statement on how sad my life is.

I have mixed feelings about Wednesdays now, as as much as I love the video, the thread its in always annoys, in that three/four people make an account just so they can get the first post, and are subsequently banned. Its small and trivial, but to quote Peter Griffin, it really grinds my gears.

damn, he had venom to spare this week.

noiyce!

No intro... very strange. Don't really care about the game, though -- but the review was still amusing as usual.

Also looks like there's six people up for the banhammer this week :)

(And I finally found out what local time these get posted... usually I'm not even awake this early in the morning.)

Yahtzee is a little confused. Skate 2 is pretty US Centric and thus from a country with NO free health care.

...which I guess goes to show exactly how retarded American skaters are.

wheres the intro?? it felt more like a statement review rather that a ZP one =(

Ah, fantastic! ZP hasn't been this funny for a while, glad to see Yahtzee is back on form!

I busted a gut i laughed so hard

I almost smacked my gob when I saw Yahtzee reviewing a skating game...

I'm still wondering if Yahtzee will ever review Mother 3.

Still, this was an entertaining review. I never was that interested in skateboarding.

I seriously hope the intro comes back... Preferably the old ones. Also, why do I hear police sirens in the backround?!

That review was probably 100 times more entertaining than the game.

I love wednsdays!

i liked the game alot and i was thinking this week will be killzone2 maybe :S

What was the siren at the beginning? :P
Anyway, nice review, thats all there is to say...

nice work on the review. thought the ep was backwards with no intro, or some comment about not having it at the end

No, no, clearly they pay it with the social security they get for the brain damage they've sustained.

very nice. button combinations are so, so............ah hell i'll just say it, fucking retarded. i don't want to remember a button combo to do a certain action, i just want to push one button and get it done so i can relate to Yahtzee's point on the combos

Don't read the comments then, it's a waste of time anyway in most cases and if Yahtzee is smart he will get his ego caressed by the number of page impressions rather then countless "Yeah, best video evar but the last 1000 were better you sellout" me2 posts. Picking the shiny informative pearls out of that sewage isn't worth ruining your day unless you are bored.

I wasn't expecting a review about Skate 2 but it was good none the less.

Thank god there wasn't an intro.

Also, this was one of the best ZP's in a long time, Good work!

Witty as always. Yahtzee should try to reveiw TRAPT. Since he seemingly tolerates old games that haven't hit the spotlight and bring something new. I can honestly say i have never played a game like trapt in my life. Except trapt.

oh yeah. i like the lack of intro.

Finally!!! Been waiting a long time for a new ZP. Keep it up!!

What happened to the opening?! I love the opening!

NoMoreSanity:
So Yahtzee is stuck on GGaHT too...

I thought i was the only one, that means i'm not as bad as i thought i was

On topic - funny as always

no intro music? was a good review though lol

Cant go wrong with Yahtzee xD Another great vid :P

Personally I missed the intro at the start - we just jumped right into the review - the first half of it was a bit lame ... don't know why it was just strange without it - but the second half of it was great and was enjoyable as always!

Wonderful as always. As someone who is good at skateboarding games, I can tell you it took me forever to get it down right, and I only did it because all I had was MoH and Tony Hawk Underground until I learned how to buy my own games.

The mention of Spelunking made me wish that this was a review of Spelunky but he kept on talking about some sort of roller blading game or something.

Black Ice:
"Do a late cockslap."

On a serious note, I've never seen him talk so little about the game he's reviewing... which is fine, since I watch it for the humor, but I felt like only 1.5 of those 4 minutes was actually about Skate 2.

to be quite frank, I don't think you can ramble on about the mechanics of a skating game for 4 1/2 minutes if you don't know the first thing about skating. Was a little surprised at his review *cough cough* choice, since its not exactly a game I would figure a large amount of people caring about.

Also skating games are notoriously boring *ducks behind sh*t shield*

LMFAO LMFAO
this was pure funny

"oh and there's a 2 because there was another one before it"

and how come there's no intro ?

Lovely review!

But I still can't see how Skate 2 is any different than the Tony Hawks series...?!
