What I don't get is why people whine about be insulted by the comedians THEY WATCH. If you don't like him, don't watch him, and really don't say you got offended by a comedian on his turf. The only reason it's okay for Yahtzee to be so offensive, even to specific groups, is because he doesn't hide the jokes when the joked about come around. If you can't tell a joke in one place, you can't tell it anywhere.

Too bad about those people who got banned, but as usual, a great five minutes of fun.

Random point I know, but that was a Fiat Punto... not a Bravo.

Yeah I'm a car geek but Yahtzee hardly ever mentions cars, so I might as well jump on his wrong words XD

Loved the Dune reference anyway :)

This one was pretty good, but in some points it was quite difficult to understand what he was saying (I mean even more difficult than usual). I've never understood the point of skating or games about it either.

Bad Yahtzee!
Go review some of the games anybody actually cares about. And please review them and don't just dissolve our ears in a bubble of babble next time

'Twas funny though. Even if i missed the intro and it lacked a review.

Good to know that theres another skater game on the market to keep them from faceplanting into my car. thx yahtzee

How about changing the forum system so it auto-bans posters during the first so many minutes as set by a moderator. Don't show the posts so there's no satisfaction. However, put the posts into a "review queue" and if they're legitimate posts, unban the posters and the comments post normally.

Can someone tell me what he says at "a kid in a ____ play"?

The review was "If your a skater/skater fanboy, you'll like it. If not, probably not"

he sure as hell added alot of acid into this review that's for sure.

jazzar:
Added venom today? Also no intro.

I like how Yahtzee's getting back into his old comedic ways, I've laughed a lot more at his 4 or 5 more recent reviews. Nice one!

Agreed, that one had me laughing like old times.

How come whenever people comment, the first people who made the 3-7 comments always get probation or get banned?

It's usually because they respond before it was humanly possible for them to have watched the entire video. You'll see comments on a 5-minute long video a minute or two after people can start watching it. And sometimes you'll see the above combined with the usual "1st post!" comments and nothing else.

Just my take on the situation, though.

Yeah, the moderators here don't take kindly to that.

Anyway, this is one of the best reviews I have seen in awhile. Good show.

I actually thought this was one of the easiest control schemes in any game I've ever played. It's pretty common sense. Yeah just a few of the specific tricks are a little hard to nail with precise joystick movements, but everything else is spot on.

skateboarding games are kinda of like having sex with a retarded monkey. fun at first but after a while it becomes very painfull and may cause you to catch aids!! A lovely review, once again my my favriote hat wearing pom. :)

Call me old fashioned, but the only skate game I was ever into was Skate or Die. I can't get into skate boarding at all. This was definitely funny.

definitely funny. Will rent this one since I am not that into skating games.

LesIsMore:
Not a bad review, but certainly weaker than last week - though part of that is because I'd never play this game for two reasons, 1) it's a skating game and 2) it's on the Playstation 3.

It's...on the 360 as well. Yahtzee just seems to be getting more PS3 versions of console games than 360 versions.

From a person who had no idea what a pop shuvit was when going to play Skate 1, I actually learned quite a bit about skateboarding and the culture that goes along with it. Rob Dyrdek is now one of my favorite celebrities, because he's funny, generous, and he grew up 5 minutes from where I did. (and designed and funded one of the first ever skate plazas in his hometown)

Now I can at least describe to you the basic idea behind tricks and recognize a few skateboarding people if I happen to see highlights on TV (fairly recently Danny Way had a nasty-looking wipeout on a megaramp which was covered on basically every sports segment).

So basically, I kind of agree with Yahtzee on some of his points, but mostly he was an ignorant asshole who saw the game was more difficult to learn than average and didn't feel like reading the DAMN DICTIONARY OF TERMS THE GAME PROVIDES IN THE TRICK LIST. Personally, as a skateboarding noob/wannabe, I found it very enlightening.

In advance...double post, sry.

Anyway, definitely try it. I wasn't into skating games at all, and my friend talked me into playing Skate 1. I got hooked really fast. It's absolutely nothing like Tony Hawk, where you press one button to jump and another to grind at 50 mph. Tony Hawk fell out of vogue when they progressively made the challenges even more ridiculous (like jumping over the Empire State Building or something). In Skate, doing a kickflip, grinding for a few seconds on the curb, and kickflipping off of it makes you feel like a damned rockstar. It's the simple stuff.

sucked

I have to admit that this review just helped me decide not to get this game.

i skate and maybe thatīs the reason didīnt laugh as much as i normally do watching zp. i am not offended or so, but the truth is that every skating game so far came up with all that "yo, dude, extreme, sick!!!" bullshit, except the old thrasher game on psone(not that much at least...). and although i really like the game i can understand that many people think its too difficult. yeah right, being a skater actually really helps understanding the controls better. the best thing about skate 2(as well as in skate.) is when you have mastered the controls and you cruise around the city and do what you want, but if you are no skateboarder yourself and/or you donīt wanna wait til you learn all the controls properly, chances are you have no interest in something like building spots or exploring the city at all. but personally, i am always bummed about how they always characterize skateboarding in games because all these games make skaters look like retards in general with all that cliché-shit and stupid slang-speech.its just annoying to skaters as well as non-skaters. but who cares, anyway...

thatīs like a start for a bad stand-up comedy. "you know bananas? i donīt get these bananas. why do people eat bananas? they are so fucking yellow! and they are curved, too! and they eat it! how crazy is that?!" (followed by little applaus from some people who either didnīt listen because it was so boring but follow the duty of applausing to almost everything you say to them or are so old, senile, stoned, etc. that they are unable to follow anything the guy in front of the brickwall(?) said but give him applause due to good maneurs).

i donīt know why i did that, sorry. iīm just angry because of women.

It's called caving, not spelunking!

I'm guessing immersion is sometimes a bad thing. Oh well better dust off THPS3 at some point because it is a good skating game where you don't need to press six buttons at the same time just to move and the arcade like objective based gameplay wasn't bad and 1000 pts is not hard to get.

I downloaded the demo, and found the controls to be a lot more intuitive than, say, Tony Hawk. Here, to grind you have to land on a ledge a certain way by maneuvering it there, instead of just pressing triangle. I kinda liked that better, but this could be a case of not seeing the horrors of the full game here.

Skate 2 is fun, but I do agree about the learning curve, which has kept the game on the shelf a bit more than I wished. Put enough time into the game and it's quite rewarding but unfortunately during this economic downturn I don't have the free time I use to.

"Lookit yon wheelie board man!" Is now my favorite ZP line.

MaxTheReaper:
Oh god. Tea tray.
I giggled. Nice reference to Uncharted with the white supremacy bit.

EDIT: Also the opening was gone. Dun dun dun.

And hell, I laughed more at this review than the last six or so, so good job.

Speaking of which, what in the name of the great space goat was with the child molestation game?

I...er...dunno?
What child molestation game?

In the beginning, I heard a police siren. Strange.

If you listen to the review with headphones you can hear sirens in the background while he's talking.
