    Zero Punctuation: Guacamelee 2 and Not Tonight

    Perhaps it's that the current state of the whole political spectrum in the UK is somewhat of a total mess that's almost impossible to follow. Particularly for someone who's now completely disconnected from the country.

    Zero Punctuation: Chasm and This is Police 2

    He did give it a "proper" review, in Extra Punctuation. [] And if you're still obsessing over it, here's a good lesson from the game itself...

    Zero Punctuation: Doki Doki Literature Club

    If the majority of people carried this attitude towards popular media, quoting The Dead Parrot Sketch or anything From the Holy Grail would still result in capital punishment. It's generally sound not engage with the lowest common denominator of a fandom -- people who base all of their...

    Zero Punctuation: Cuphead

    The official reason he moved to US was to live with his significant other. It's worth a note that he originally moved Down Under for the same reason, though certainly not the same person. Yahtzee is a lovelorn romantic like that. Hopefully it all works out in the end.

    Zero Punctuation: Metroid: Samus Returns

    Hm? Isn't he big on Metroidvanias? I believe the original SotN was one of his favorite games and a significant degree of Mv-ness is why he came around to liking the Souls games so much.

    Zero Punctuation: Metroid Prime Federation Force

    Ow, that hurt! I thought that was quality sarcasm :( But let's not get carried away, I don't seek to start a flame war and I respect your opinion in regards to Metroid, as it is presented by Nintendo, being old boot. But I've not made an overt suggestion that other developers have superseded...

    Zero Punctuation: Metroid Prime Federation Force

    Pardon me, I should have used the universal caveat of "allegedly" before making that suggestion. The word "Metroid" allegedly does not exert some sort of magical conspiracy field that makes people go on wild guessing sprees, it's just what allegedly happens when there's a vacuum of information...

    Zero Punctuation: Metroid Prime Federation Force

    Considering how out of touch they are with the established fanbases for their games, it's quite possible. And of course the end result of such a misguided attempt to make people forget about their misstep would be everybody mentioning Other M and Nintendo's mismanagement of the franchise...

    Upgradable Consoles are Just PCs for Peasants

    Lifelong nVidia owner here, and I must admit that while performance-per-watt superiority has long been Green Goblin's unquestionable advantage, AMD is already loading its gun with the silver bullet that goes by the name of Polaris 10 -- a rather impressive architecture that manages to beat the...

    Zero Punctuation: XCOM 2

    Ah the old snaketits kerfuffle. It's as old as the XCOM2 announcement trailer itself: Why? Good marketing. On the part of Firaxis or in-game alien overlords? Both.

    Is it time for feminists to step off our hobby?

    See the problems here are: 1. You did not use a credible source in the first place. What does BBC have to say about femenism in relation to this issue? You used articles that co-opt the the issue of racial relations onto the fight against femenism, just because they are a human rights group...

    Is it time for feminists to step off our hobby?

    Leaning a bit too hard of right-wing publications aren't we? Evil evil immigration and the terrible lefties and so forth and so on? The above articles can be basically paraphrased as: Why aren't feminists attacking those filthy dirty immigrants and their red-toothed colluders? This far...

    Jim & Yahtzee's Rhymedown Spectacular: Taking Gaming Seriously

    It's rather obviously the infamous PewDiePie and DarksydePhil. But I would like to see the train of thought that led you to "Sarkeesian and the SJW". Don't mind me, just going through my Rhymedown backlog.

    Dark Souls II Director "Hasn't Thought About" PS4 or Xbox One Ports

    I was honestly trying to phrase it like a light hearted jab rather than something that could bait you into a confrontation. If I failed on that account, the fool that is I will get what he rightfully deserves for his conceit. It seems like PC would be a good testbed for the latest gen, since...

    Dark Souls II Director "Hasn't Thought About" PS4 or Xbox One Ports

    I'm sorry, do mine eyes deceive me, or are you actually a console enthusiast complaining about how your personal computer colleague have it made, how they get preferential treatment over your personal platform of choice, in the current day and age? I must warn that you may have accidentally...
