I don't think he's a troll but I do get the occasional feeling that certain ticks in a game effect him more than a lot of other people, friends and reviewers alike. But the way he destroyed those brawl fanboys I think everyones a little scared to actually say anything or point it out


Mushroomn. 6 years later it's kind of a dumbass name. Sorry about that

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...

Buckley didn't want to lose users so he went on about how everyone has their own opinion. Yahtzee was pretty on the ball with this, even cyanide and happiness made fun of the miscarriage comice

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.

They're rubbish.

He's trying to look professional for doing doodles and speaking fast. But I suppose he had his say at the end of the credits.

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.

DO NOT WANT.

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.

Soul Calibur 4

This one seriously bothers me. Yes, the story is complex and weird and a lot of the extra gametypes are gimmicky, but those are the only legitimate complaints.

The core gameplay is still extremely fun, smooth, and deep. The characters all play drastically differently, with exception to the obvious clone characters (Sophita / Cassandra), but even they are pretty distinct.

You can get away with spamming attacks or trying to throw over and over again against the computer or new players, but it really doesn't work against someone who knows what they're doing. There's a new system in place to punish overly defense players, there's guard impacts, you can CANCEL grabs, there's unguardable attacks and guard breaking attacks and the game's based around short combos rather than long combinations of button presses.

So many combos can lead into other potential combos (but nothing is unavoidable) or set you up in different stances and there's moves that you can choose to purposefully delay to throw your opponent off guard. It's my favorite fighting game series, and he basically says it's shit because you can beat the AI with cheap tactics.

He's done this with other games, but this review really bothers me the most.

I don't know, did this irk anyone else or am I just a tottalley reatarded fanboie?

probably a little extra love for soul calibur is whats buggin ya. U just gotta remember that that's what yahtzee does is he picks at games through a perspective of a casual button mashing gamer.

Braid

I guess you could consider this one of his positive reviews. He honestly dosn't spend a lot of time talkign about the game, but rather about the game industry itself.

I don't like you Yahtzee.

You go on talking about how video games are becoming like the film industry but then you say you're all upset because the ending of the game is open to interpretation. What do you want, Yahtzee? Tell me.

I wouldn't be surprised if ignored the glitches and actually looked at the fun aspects of the game.
Also where did you hear this info?
