    Zero Punctuation: Doom

    The heavy assault rifle's alt fire (or at least, the only one that matters) when fully upgraded is a rapid-fire missile launcher. It kills single demons, it clears crowds, it takes down big guys, it is usable in all situations. I probably used that more than any other weapon in the game.

    Zero Punctuation: Doom

    It's a... sequel... ish. Sort of. Kinda. I think someone elsewhere described it as "I picture one night the guys at ID were sitting around a table during a night of drinking, and one of them blearily raised his head from his drunken stupor and said "Guys... EVERYTHING'S CANON." ...and they went...

    Zero Punctuation: Ratchet & Clank

    ...I saw the gun that had tits and was on fire. Okay, compared to the discussions, coming here and saying that feels a bit pointless, but it's one of my favorite call-backs that I don't think he's used much, if at all, that I had to say something. Oh wait, I'll agree with this. I was...

    Zero Punctuation: Assassin's Creed: Chronicles

    Ubisoft should just bring back Prince of Persia instead of running Ass Creed further into the ground. ...Yeah, that's all I have to say. I liked the PoP games better than any of the Ass Creed games, so... yeah.

    Zero Punctuation: Yoshi's Woolly World - Cartoon Velociraptor

    Oh ye gods, Yahtzee, now you've done it. You had to ask about the name of Yoshi and the name of the species. Do you have ANY idea how many fanboys will now be emailing you to show off that they actually read the news story a year ago where someone read a 20-year-old strategy guide that revealed...

    Unskippable: Marlow Briggs and the Mask of Death - Villain Stereotype Checklist

    I have never even heard of this game, but the title does not sound like A-list material.

    Unskippable: Drakengard 3 - Oh God, There's So Much Blood

    ...What an odd-looking game.

    Zero Punctuation: Assassin's Creed: Unity - From Pirates to Paris

    I find it mildly amusing that the escapist played an ad for this very game right before the video itself, when I came in here to watch it. In truth, I abandoned that Assassin's Creed series after 3, as that was when I realized that, whatever story the creator(s?) may have had in mind back...

    Unskippable: Asura's Wrath, Part 3 - Exercising the Right to Bare Arms

    Are you sure actual gameplay wasn't already happening? Maybe the entire game is made up of cutscenes with quicktime events.

    Unskippable: Pandora's Tower - Are We Sure This Isn't Resident Evil?

    Ok, so you made me look this up just to verify that it was possible to get a "happy" ending out of this game. And it is, so... good. Sometimes games like this are "You can choose between a bad ending that totally screws over the world, a bad ending that just screws over your two characters, a...

    Unskippable: Amazing Spider-Man 2 - AKA Peter's Unhealthy Quest for Revenge

    People know enough about radiation now to know it doesn't work that way. Fortunately, along came genetic engineering, which is a new "magic that can do anything," so they're all set by just replacing a few words.

    Unskippable: Kingdom Hearts Re: Chain of Memories - Thank God for Subtitles

    I'm sorry, I still don't see why anyone would think that putting Disney characters into a JRPG would ever be a good idea.

    Unskippable: Kingdom Hearts: Final Mix - There's a Metaphor In Here Somewhere...

    Personally I'm wondering what drugs whoever wrote that intro cutscene was on.

    Unskippable: The Witch and the Hundred Knight, Part 2 - Apparently He's a Pokemon

    Oh, from what I've read about the story, the Swamp Witch has plenty of other very good reasons for having turned into an antisocial ***** over the years, beyond just having been sealed in her swamp for over a century.

    Unskippable: Farming Simulator 15 and More E3 2014 Trailers!

    ...Why DID the trailer for Farming Simulator have the most dramatic music out of all the trailers? Prior to E3 someone should have lined up all the trailers and played them back to back, and then told the makers of all the horror games and world-saving games and what-have-you "guys, seriously...
