this was a smart episode. It wasn't overly funny right until the very last 2 seconds, i wonder what would have happened if he didn't cut himself off in the video?

"It belongs in a museum" - To summarize my reaction: rofl, lmao, lol

Nice people aren't lazy Yahtzee!

I see what you did thar. Can't help but think Yahtzee -is- racist because of the subliminal messages and the interrupted "n*****" phrase in the end.

NOT RACIST

DangerousNewb:
Yes yes, Hip Hop aint what it used to be.

nah, it's just as bad. Almost all rap and hip hop is shit. Too bad people are too stupid to realize it (and no I'm not racist, cause if I hated all black music I'd hate blues, bebop, jazz, and a ton of other stuff which I find great)

Sorry, I meant only Alternative Hip Hop and Jazz Rap is good, Fuck Mainstream rappers and Hip Hop artists like 50 Cents :]

once again a good reveiw

*clap*

Not you too, Goddamit, its Mainstream music thats shit. Try looking at Indie Labels and you'd be surprised

Mazty:
Hahahaha really funny, and amazing ending.
50 Cent games suck....Big surprise...
Seriously though, by expanding his view, I thought Yahztee would have meant talking about multiplayer and playing mainstream, big titles, like Resistance 2, or other large titles. AS much as I'm for laughs, it is kind of pointless reviewing a blatant turd of a game.
Good commentary on the rap mindset though.

he already reviewed gears of war 2, so for him reviewing killzone 2/resistance 2/any other generic shooter would be pretty pointless. at least in his way of thinking.

1:29 repeat ad nauseam/comprire
XD

loved the subliminal not racist, great reference to father ted.

I enjoyed the review. Lol at the end, censor-sniping joke. :D

i wasnt aware it was ever good... anywho that review was awesome, not laughed as hard at a ZP for a while now :P nice ending :)

Har har har, I hate when people talk about rap music then wonder why a black kid beats them up... seriously you dont see me going around talking about rock or country or whatever you listin to

well yahtzee is right again so i guess it's not a must buy oh well back to kz2

way to paint a huge bullseye on your forehead for every minority rights group (strangely containing everyone who's NOT in that minority) to shoot at, I'm quite frankly oddly alienated in the way you presented that, it made me sort of angry but the tragic twist is that you're for the most part right... and it would be a better world without minority groups sponsored by everyone who's scared of being called racist homophobic or otherwise words that make them seem unlikable. They keep on whining about the smallest things that you start to think they are just doing it so they keep a paycheck

hsb:
I lol'ed at the ending, funny review, also why did 50 Cent want to make two games about him shooting people? Doesnt he do that enough in his songs..by songs i mean speaking really fast with music in the background xD

You mean lip singing really fast with someone else speaking and music in the background? Seriously a lot of the artists (really stretching the term for a lot of people) lipsing.

Oh the ending (looks around quickly and then starts laughing).

Oh my christ that was bloody brilliant hahahaha

The lazy...

filled with awesome. thanxs

He's been getting better recently, but
That. Was. Classic.

ok well that was an interesting post 1. i dont need to wonder why i got beaten up seeing as i dont get into fights of trivial differences between peoples tastes 2. why would it be "a black kid" last time i looked any music could be enjoyed by anyone quit beeing ignorant 3. feel free to speak yer mind about metal im not insecure enough to be riled by any insults against it and last dont be so sensitive

The lazy nig-

best part of any ZP ever

Mr Garrison did that first, but I still laughed hard.

As a matter of fact, it's from the British sitcom Father Ted.

Which in turn probably drew inspiration for that joke from Blazing Saddles.

"The Sheriff is a Ni"DONG!

It's still funny though, no matter where the original inspiration came from.

GoW2 is a TPS, those other games are FPS'. Saying if he's reviewed one he's reviewed them all is saying if he's reviewed a mainstream game, he's reviewed them all, which just isn't true.

I haven't laughed this hard at a ZP review for a long time. Most of the time I politely chuckle at the clever animations, side-jokes, and ridiculous metaphors but this time I literally fell out of my chair laughing (note: I did not actually fall out of my chair). The final credits snippet was also clever: "Barack Obama probably likes 50 Cent since he's always talking about 'change'". Oh Yahtzee~

That was absolutely hilarious.....ah, music these days.

The ending was pure family guy humor !

Nice. You're quite right about the parts you were serious about. If people just learned to reflect and laugh about themselves occasionally rather than worry whether every little unsavory comment is motivated by racism, the world would be a better place.

I don't know much about 50 Cent, but every piece of media about him leaves an impression on me that it's just a massive childish ego trip. The media has him playing as HIMSELF that supposed to make him look like a hero when he's just a rapper. Sure, Chuck Norris was pretty egotistical with Walker Texas Ranger but at least he was playing a CHARACTER, not as himself, and Chuck Norris is an expert martial artist. Besides, his highly goal oriented attitude and personal code for having faith in others makes him a good role model. What kind of role model 50 Cent trying to convey? Make a bunch of foul mouthed music while showing off you can shoot unarmed people and become rich, highly materialistic snob?

Plus, anyone get the impression that 50 Cent contracted THQ to make these games for only himself and not others to play?

I felt like i was getting lectured...but i loved the subliminal messages.

Like how your hugging a man of a diffrent race (can't say which race it is in fear of being clamed wrong/racist) it does push the point home just that little bit extra.

HAHAHAH OH NO HE DI-INT!!!

that was a great one. :-)

please let there be at least one black person who gets generally offended by this review... PLEASE!!!

it would only make the "Not Racist" subliminal messages in the review all the more funny

i think you mean lip "syncing", but it's all the same difference

AHAHAHAAH you have got to be kidding me! This is going to be such a one sided review. It was obvious and hilarious that after 50 cent the movie the game came out (which was also obvious and hilarious) that they would have to release another one. Problem is, is that the 50 cent fanboy well has run a little dry, however they will find some salvation at the fact that achievement cravers, REVIEWERS looking for an easy review (teehee) and people who just want to laugh and gawk at the game will accompany the fanboy's purchases so maybe this game might actually sell.

Note: I still am looking forward to watching this review because all of your reviews are random, spunky and fun to watch.

Awesome vid. Best in a while
