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?

His new theme song is shit.

That is all.


I've been refurbished and reissued, prepackaged and precooked, decontaminated and deloused, but I still smell, sound, look and feel like shit.

New to the video game forums?

Yeah it was at least fun to see which song he would choose go with the game, but now the opening is just as boring as the rest of his 'review'. He should've quit while he was ahead long ago.

It was alright, but it was pretty predictable, I think we all know by now that he's going to rip it to shreads.

It's weird.

When I pointed out the exact same flaws about BC: R as Yahtzee did, except a month earlier on Youtube, everybody jumped down my throat and said I was a no-skills motherfucker and felt the need to insult my sexuality and whatnot.

Now, looking at the comment page, it seems everybody is agreeing with him.

Wat.

My jaw dropped when he did Castle Crashers. But he did seem to like it except for a few bad points which he exaggerated (like usual).

It's cool that he reviewed Castle Crashers, but he barely even spent a lot of time talking about it. It would have been cooler to see him do an entire video about it, but I guess it's not possible if there isn't a lot to talk about.

While yes, he has pointed out some problems with CC that i am aware of (such as losing sight of your character in big fights and the vertical plane bit,) it's like he ran out of things to say for that game from that point on.

You know, everybody is entitled to an opinion. I can respect that, and everybody should. However, when you say something as blatantly wrong as "Mario Sunshine was better than Mario 64" you really don't have an excuse

I mean, I guess Twilight Princess is arguable. I think that the game is a sack of balls, but I guess that it had a different crowd to appeal to than OOT. A crowd that needs to be force-fed heart containers even though they're fighting one-hit-kill baddies all the time

Anyway

Easily my least favorite ZP, and it's not because I disagree with him. It's just that the review seemed like it was trying to be one-sided in a discussion where there really are no sides

Whereas newer games absolutely do have the potential to be greater than those of yesterday, he neglects to mention that they often, quite simply, aren't. It's not because they're older, it's just because they're better, in the same way that a sequel often does not live up to the first game

This review seemed riddled with ignorance, and that disappointed me. Maybe it's because he's a PC gamer by heart, and by all means, that's understandable. But really, there's the general consensus, those who disagree, and little acrimony between the two groups, with the occasional retarded fourteen year old thrown in

In short - it really wasn't that funny, and I disagree with what he said, but it's not going to stop be from watching his videos every week. Seriously. This guy's fucking hilarious

I really liked Mario Sunshine.

More so than I did Mario 64.

So sue me.

Nostalgia clouds your brain.

Take it from a person who played Mario 64 for the first time about 10 years after it was released.

Mario 64 is a pretty okay game.

Because I haven't seen any legitimate reasons why Mario 64 is better than Mario Galaxy.
