NINTENDO NOOOOOO!

Forget him. He's lost!

LMFAO, funny review

"nintendo NOOOOOOOOOOOO"

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

Unless he gets an import copy at GAME TRADERS ROBINA like he did with Brawl, don't count on it. MadWorld just released over here in America yesterday and it doesn't hit Australian retailers for another 2 weeks. It'll be a while before he touches on MadWorld. I'm hoping he'll review Deadly Creatures though. I'd like to hear what he has to say on it, especially since it's another good game on the Wii and a pretty unique one at that.

no its a gun that shoots lightbulbs. those CFL's hurt like hell XP

Hey I had the exact same idea for a weapon one time. It's like we're on the same wavelength or something.

Falseprophet:
Wow, three good ZPs in a row! Has the golden age returned?

assuming that everyone has invididual tastes in what they want from ZP and that most people praise them anyway, could it be safe to say it never really ended?

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!

You're both high for A.) thinking that scores have anything to do with how good a system is. and B.) for thinking that scores aren't believable. As if it's a God or something. Although, you could disagree with them, but that's another story. Oh yeah and C.) for thinking that your opinions matter so much as to be able to deem a system "good" or "bad".

Haha,"Gears of World War 2." That whole bit made me laugh really hard =].

Great review, mademe chuckle. I love my copy of Overkill, though it has possibly one of the most disturbing endings of a game. Ever.

How the hell Overkill got past the NIMF or Daily Mail without causing any fuss is beyond me (unlike Madworld Ruins Wii's Family Friendly Image)

UncleScar:
As a Glaswegian, I approve of the heroin comment

Ditto! Mainly coz it's accurate.

I liked the Wii/Zombie analogy. Pretty much the high point of the review for me.

Also, waiting for the impending Killzone 2 slaughter.

HAHA......Good Stuff.
I'm glad he gave a rip on Killzone 2 makes me feel better about having no intention to play it.

House of the Dead just isn't the same without an arcade booth and plastic brightly-coloured guns.

RELOAD

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

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

Yes because that cartridge-based, low-poly spewing, crippled texture-mapping Silicon Graphics-designed gray box is clearly superior to the Gamecube and Wii combined. *SARCASM*

The Nintendo 64's hardware limitations and small storage medium caused it to miss out on many, MANY good franchises that found a home on the PlayStation. Sure, it had it's gems, but most were all first or second-party titles. Just like with the Wii Motion Control Upgrade, Nintendo was really dodgy and secretive about certain aspects of the N64 development kits with their third-party licensees. Consequently, the N64 did have the last of the good Pro-Wrestling games, that being WWF No Mercy.

And the Gamecube did everything right except for the childish marketing they slapped on it and their choice to ignore Online Play except for certain SEGA titles. They remedied the bad marketing later, but it was too far into the system's life to turn it around at that point. The system was, however, blessed with the final and best iteration of Gauntlet: Dark Legacy which is insanely fun with friends (not to mention epic in scale).

Personally, I consider the NES and SNES superior to the N64 as they were industry juggernauts in their time and trumpeted a literal sea of amazing titles. None of them compare, of course, to the godliness that is the Commodore 64 so they can all bow in reverence at it's 5.25" Floppy feet.

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

And in Quake 4

And Quake 1

And Painkiller

And Unreal Tournament 2003/2004

Well this video has been a poor quilty video. Yahtzee seems to be getting ether lazy or her becoming the EA version of critics in whichs his fame has gotting so be he feels he can just push shit out and think we will take it lieing down. I really that I was watching some shit video with Yahtzee voice just dubbed in. Very poor quilty then again all 2009 videos seem to be on this poor quilty level. I not even sure why I come back here each week. Seems the comidy master has drown in the waves if endless bad game. For every good game there is 20 bad one he has to review. Now I have to only hope the comidy will return one day. As of now Yahtzee seems to be wanting to review more and rant then the Yahtzee we all grow to love.

DoomBlackDragon:

I honestly doubt you'd be missed.

Anyway, great review (again (as always)), but honestly, I can't bring myself to buy the game. The idea of owning a HOTD game... :shudder: I'd ever be able to look at my face in the mirror again. :)

OK, OK, I get it, everyone! My bad for trying to defend Nintendo. THEY SUCK! There, happy? Can I please not get any more flak over supporting a console and games I happen to like? PLEASE FORGIVE ME for having my own opinions. Won't happen again.

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

Retrospective reviews of Ico, KKND and one of Vigilante 8: Arcade, perhaps?

Don't know a Q one though.

EDIT: Quake! How could I forget Quake!

If you click the link to Yahtzee's site under the vid, there's a well thought-out dissertation on why Yahtzee isn't reviewing SF4, Killzone 2 or Resistance 2. In response to that dissertation:

Review Flower, Mr. Croshaw. Or play it, at least. You're obviously suffering from a dearth of artsy, incomprehensible titles.

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.

Well aren't you mature. Starting the argument by insulting me. Anyone how can you Blame Nintendo for the games on its console, that's like blaming a plane crash owing to pilot error on Boeing.

I find it highly entertaining that the folks of the escapist seem to believe that an opinion can be wrong.

I think he just doesn't like Nintendo, if every time somebody doesn't like something we call them a fanboy then what does the word mean?

I have no problem with him disliking Nintendo, what annoys me is the fact that every single chance he gets he insults Nintendo while complimenting the other two consoles. It happens consistently throughout his videos.

I found that funny, the best part is when he became all soppy and was like "Wouldn't have it any other way".

But that's mainly cos my lover had said the same to me 30 minutes prior on the phone.

Good review.....No really this actually said a bit about the game itself.........nice...

Another great one, Yahtzee! :)

I knew Yahtzee would hate Killzone 2. It's colors are not bright at all, he doesn't care for multiplayer, and all you do is "kill" people in a war "zone". I'm glad he had fun with Overkill. I wonder if we'll see a MadWorld review.

I loved how he jumps into a Review about Killzone out of no where and Shuts it down.

Eagle Est1986:
wtf? Bit early isn't it? Still, two games I've wanted to see. Disappointed that he's not doing a full review of Killzone 2, surely if it's as bad as he makes out, there's plenty of material for him there? Anyways, this makes me want Overkill, I think I might buy it for my best mate, cheer him up after getting dumped.

He didn't say it was bad, he said its story was bad. The way he talked about Killzone 2, it was like he actually enjoyed it, but he hated the story. I think he's spot on with that. Horrible story, fantastic game.

That was a truly brilliant review, something I haven't said in these comments for a while. The amount of bile, sarcasm and actual seriousness was put together wonderfully. Great job.

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

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!!!!!!!

If you can't see the similarities between the Helghast and the Nazi Sturmtruppen, then you need to go back to school and take History again.

I wasn't insulting you I was making a joke and Nintendo aren't bad they are just in a poor patch at the moment, they need to start making up new stuff thats all. Didn't mean to offend.

Also I mean that yahtzee is a anti-fanboy fanboy

Nintendo fans-er, users are really sensitive...although I was too back when I had a GameCube and my Xbox and PS2 friends mocked me for it (but it actually had enough great games to not pity myself...and then the PS2 got RE4 too)...

Anyways, really liked how he slipped in a quick Killzone 2 review. At first I was like "meh...how you gonna find enough material for a whole video" and there we go, haha.

nathan-dts:
Wow. Your first funny review in months. I agree with the House of the dead stuff disagree about the KillZone stuff.

Gamecube, if anything was better then PS2 in just about everything, graphics power, controller set up (design, wavebird, etc), even the discs Nintendo prevented privacy where PS2 failed. However it never caught on as much, like what is happening with PS3 now. Super Monkey Ball 2, Viewtiful Joe, Metroid Prime series (it STILL looks good for a 2002 game), Pikmin, even RE 4 was released on the GC first and was the best experience visually (they had to add extra content since the PS2 lacked the power to keep up with what RE4 demanded) were just some of the solid titles GC had, the list goes on.

Of course Dreamcast was better then both consoles, but overall I'd say Gamecube would have been the best console in that generation if it wasn't for the pure fandom of the PS2... Sure PS2 had quality games, but it also had a LOT of shovelware like the Wii does have now, I can't even REMEMBER all the crappy PS2 JRPG or car titles I have seen.

The reason why Nintendo turned away from power is because Gamecube was a solid console but just didn't sell. So I find it ironic that Sony fanboys are giving Nintendo crap atm when the exact thing happened years before with the PS2... Sony got a new audience, had a DVD player attached and PS2 sold like hotcakes even though both Dreamcast and Gamecube were better (Gamecube came after PS2 of course, but PS2 still kept selling so much more then the cube, and even then, Dreamcast came before PS2 and it didn't beat it, so hype > release dates).

With that said, yes, Wii does need help. While it is most comparable to what PS2 was in the day, PS2 still had a lot of solid titles while Wii needs more.

this is what happens when you put sega and nintendo together...
