Todays review was pretty funny, it's definatly going to piss off a lot of people. Does anyone else think that next weeks video will be another hate mail responce, similar to the one he made for Brawl?

Also, what does everyone think of the Zero Punctuation t-shirts?

He is not the one adding the adverts onto the video. I believe that The Escapist is the one responsible for doing it, since the ads rotate, and has been applied to his older videos, and every other video submitted to the site.

On the other hand, quite frankly, I really have not used much of anything else when it comes to equipment in the MGS series, besides the tranquilizer. Hell, when I was watching a couple of my friends play, they only used the tranquilizer to sneak around.

And Yahtzee continues to wonderfully expand my vocabulary. "Lady-spunk." Brilliant...and disgusting.

You have a point. I guarrentee that so many Metal Gear Solid fans will be freaking out at Yahtzee for insulting such a popular series. It seems like he has a nack at putting down games that is generally loved by everyone else.

For anyone who is curious, this weeks video will be a rant about web comics. I saw a preview of it on TV, what I saw was pretty funny.

Wow, he's gonna have some great material for that, then.
I assume he's going to point out that 73% of them are about video games.

Actually, the review is only on web comics. He makes fun of the fact that all you have to do is relate games to real life in order to make "humour". He also makes fun of CAD for the miscaridge comic.

CAD's forums is going to be on a massive lockdown when Buckley sees this. When his beloved comic is made fun of (for plagiarism, copypasta, etc.,) people point it out on his forums, and a mass banning starts.

CAD is a horrible web comic I'm surprised at how so many people even enjoy it, I can't wait to see Yahtzee ramble on horribly about a stupid comic.

The forums (well, the CAD-related board at least) over at CAD are absolutely dire. They all seem to love the comic more than he does, I mean, just go check out the (massive) thread on the miscarriage comic. Every now and then people went in and said "I wasn't such a big fan of this comic" or whatever, and they'd get jumped on with people claiming they have no soul or whatever.

For what? Stating an opinion about a certain game?

3... 2... 1... and here we go.

He spent a lot of time making fun of Ctrl+Alt+Del, for the "miscarriage" comic, Buckley's ego, the stupid character and smart character, etc.

In the meantime, I wonder how it's going at his forums...

I guess this relates back to the Brawl review responces. If they like CAD, then they shouldn't care what Yahtzee thinks, unless there's some doubt in the back of their head that they're not enjoying themselves as much as they thought they were.

Yahtzee seems more and more to being only concerned with the viewing figures his videos gets rather than legitimately reviewing those thing.....that we play.

Oh yeah video games, obviously apart from which newest 10/10 release is coming out that week. The CAD bashing is just another example of something that's been done to death, but for someone like him who just slates whatever popular game's out at the moment and await the tide of internet 'intellectuals' to agree with him I don't see how he's in a position to judge anyone.

What does everyone think of the series new look? I think it looks pretty cool, but the old look had more personality.

So, he nitpicked at everything awful about LEGO Indy, but he still had fun with it?

Well, perfect waste of around 4 minutes.

I guess the lack of a mention means that Colorforms are a strictly American toy. Which is a pity, I'd love to see a Colorforms Stargate.

Doesn't he comment on that in "Mailbag Showdown"?

"Yes, I do nitpick at every flaw of a game, but then again I'm a critic, if It'd be weird if I didn't."

"I could have balls put in my mouth and that would have made me a hooker, or an activision employee. But I'm not so I'm a critic"

They're rubbish.

One of the highlights of the week would be seeing how the songs he chose tied in to the game and his general feelings when playing it.

They're gone now.

Age of Conan this week

Thought this episode was one of his weaker ones.
He spent too much time harping on the stereotypes of MMOs and the people who play them.
I mean, it's funny the first few times but now it's getting really really old.
