nintendo should have kept the n64 but anyway the fact theres no killzone 2 review thats just sad

Hammith:
Greatly enjoyed the stab at Killzone 2. I'm so tired of all these games that happen in the 'future' and then have one gun that seems like it'd be from the future. Why isn't there a game yet where you start with a lightning gun, which is the least awesome gun?

Bah! Bah I say! Less realism, more fun!

well there is a gun in killzone 2 that shoots lighting :D

At around the phrase "The most open-minded prostitute" the humor reached critical mass and attained self-sustaining fusion reaction. At least that's when I started laughing uncontrollably so hard I had to watch the thing again. And a few times more for good measure.

Maybe now people who say ZP isn't as good as it used to be will hush. . . this may be the funniest review yet.

I never played a pure slasher before. I guess if I ever felt the need to, this is what I would try.

Very funny, mabye next time you'll do mad world, if not... well I guess thats not up to me...

haha, i remember terrible translations from back in the day. the girl screaming "don't come!" used to get the prepubescent me giggling so hard.

That was Time Crisis.

funny that you made this review and i just happened to be watching REC five minutes before i saw it, talk about bizare coincidences

+1 for the matrix
actualy concidering how many games contain zombies on the current releases it wasnt realy unexpected

o well whatever

wow, you have way to much time on your hands lol

shoots lighting? So... it's a lightbulb?

A 360 with tits and the PS3 as Ving Rhames, best metaphor ever.

I sense incoming Killzone 2 fanboy flames. Hit the deck!

*20 pyros with back burners come out of no where and set JohnWood on fire, as the take of their masks, it is revealed they are robots, with the Nintendo logo, engraved in their robotic heads. Literal, Nintendo Bots*

cutekittenkyti:
Yahtzee needs games starting with I,K,Q and V....yes I went through the entire list...
also he has like 15 games starting with the letter S
and do games starting with "the" count as T's or as the letter the second word starts with???
either way he still needs I K Q and V

I= ICO
K = klanoa :p
Q = Q*Bert
im lost for V though

Lightning WITH infinite ammo!!!

Nah, fanboys aren't going to run to defend the game, even with the copious amounts of xbox fanboys attempting to provoke them to do so. We like the game, and that's all that really matters. It's got plenty of good reviews behind it, it doesn't really matter that the one gaming critic who hates every game save for a select few released 10 years ago decided he didn't like it. In fact, it's not even a surprise, attempting to defend it would be like trying to defend your asian girlfriend against your racist grandfather who served in nam.

I think Yahtzee should do an Animal Crossing: City Folk review at some point. That game has a massive fanbase that, in my opinion, doesn't deserve in the slightest.

quickpaw:
Well that was blatantly yet another anti Nintendo rant. God Yahtzee is such a fanboy.

Edit: Well I've clearly kicked a wasps nest here.

I didn't know you could get anti-fanboy fanboys lol. I think he just very annoyed with the crap that nintendo keeps churning out relying purely on the customers nostalgia.

I loved that one - too funny and too true...

That one was pretty good, I like the first half, especially characterizing the consoles as zombie survivors.

okay call me a fanboy but killzone 2 deserves a full review not just 2 sentances wich by the looks of it only reviewed the traliers and where did he get germans from i mean guys with glowing red gogles and breading gas masks germans?? ok sure it was made by germans but theres noting to do with germans at all!!! and another thing the setting is 2152 or sumtaing along those lines + the only thing it has the same as gears is the colour wich it is better then with the lighting effets and i could go on more but the bottem line is
i want killzone 2 review!!!!!!!

Euh.... fail? the Killzone franchise is made in the Netherlands by Dutch people. Netherlands =/= Germany. Dutch =/= German.

The rest I agree. It deserves a full review. Even though the setting has been done a hundred times, it's better then Resistance and it's equally fun as GoW IMHO.

Duh:

oh god yh
2bf i think my aversion stopped me from finding it :P

Ico could be one. That's all I got

Pretty good review, not that I will play that game but i think i get the idea

That was brilliant. I say skip Killzone 2. In all that game had nothing special about it and was average to the point of boredom. House on the other hand was brilliant in pure spectacle. While mind-numbingly easy its just something I like having on the shelf for laughs. I was so charmed by it not taking itself seriously. It was almost refreshing in this sea of serious business games that are completely unrealistic.

Bravo Yahtzee, I had a good laugh at this one.

good one yahtzee
also HA! my console has TITS! (suck it PS3)!

"WE BAKED YOU A TYRE CAKE!"

awesome line even though I thought the video was review-heavy and lacked as much comedy as I would have liked

By the way anyone know how to get a hold of "The Typing of the Dead"?

I'm pretty sure it's available on GameTap. I'd check their site, but their search function doesn't seem to be working for me at the moment. I had the bright idea of checking wikipedia, but there isn't a complete list of everything there (which makes sense since you could just go to the GameTap site itself and search for it... if their search function was working :\)

EDIT: Ha, found it! It was listed under the "Premium Action" category:

http://www.gametap.com/video-games/premium/action?page=2

I disagree about killzone 2, while it was kind of cliched and the weapons were all just rehashes of modern day weapons, it was a lot of fun. It is a lot like gears of war, but thats not necessarily a bad thing, it does kind of have an artistic feel to it occasionally.

Well that was blatantly yet another anti Nintendo rant. God Yahtzee is such a fanboy.

I guess he's decided on a fixed quotient every month. Drama whoring does bring in more site traffic after all.

He's already quadrupled the escapist's traffic. Is that not enough?

Well, he's already appointed himself as the champion of Nintendo hatedom, he has to keep up the image.

For someone who spends half his time yammering on about how he doesn't care what anyone else thinks, he sure seems obsessed with retaining his fanbase...

Well i dont belive that he cares about what people are saying, but it is possible the his paycheck grows for each person he beings to the site. So if he appeals to the fan base then he should logicly get apyed more.

Im not saying thats it, but it could explain it.

Bravo, this review seemed to have that gene'se qua the some of his later reviews have been missing.

It was charming, not blatantly hatefull, and just seem to have this general air of fun. I susppect he might have actully enjoyed doing crating the review, it seem to have this very natural flow to it.

Hey! I might be able to get some use out of my Wii instead of keeping it in the closet, while my 360 hogs up the television...

Nintendo haven't made a good console since the Nintendo 64.

The Wii would like to have a word with you. http://www.metacritic.com/games/wii/scores/

OMFG, You actually believe these scores?

Funny that I agree Mario Galaxy is the best to come onto the Wii, but most of the others were shocking and I would cut that score in half and cut it again!

hahahehe
