    Zero Punctuation: Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes - $40 Demo

    You mean they've thrown out mister "Got-Voice-Acting-Lessons-From-Skeletor"? I remember trying to play MGS3 on the PS2, hearing this tripe: and immediately being so weirded out that I couldn't continue playing it. The fact that I was tripping over...

    Zero Punctuation: System Shock 2

    Oh, hi there, Stallman. SS2 is literally just downloaded onto your harddrive by Steam. If you go to the SteamApps-folder, you can just doubleclick the .exe file and start the game, Steam not being the slightest bit involved. You're spewing shit over something you know nothing about, and that...

    Black Ops 2 Is Like A Rich Jerk

    .. I thought BlOps 2 was okay. But Yahtzee's points are mostly valid. Though I don't really appreciate the notion that one should submit to being fettered by cultural guilt.

    The Assassins and Templars are Idiots

    How about, there's some sort of woman, an ADMINISTRATOR, if you will, who secretly controls both the Assassins, symbolized by the color RED, and the templars, symbolized by the color BLUE.

    Zero Punctuation: Call of Duty: Black Ops 2

    I have a confession to make. I actually don't hate the CoD games. They aren't great, not by a long shot, but I have played every one, and they're so well-made that I always play the next one, even if i know it isn't going to push any envelopes. And Yahtzee, I think you're reading a bit too...

    Zero Punctuation: Assassin's Creed 3

    The reason that I personally didn't like AC3 as much as say, AC1, 2 or Brotherhood, was that the main character was not in the least bit likable. Connor, that is. Haytham was fucking awesome, and should they have made the game about him, I would have found it immensively more satisfying to...

    Zero Punctuation: Prince of Persia: The Forgotten Sands

    Came here to confirm that Roger Ebert is an old tosspot.

    You Are Probably Using Google Chrome to Read This

    The browser inside of Steam is, since about a year or so, running on WebKit, i.e. the same engine as Safari and Chrome. Before that, it used Trident (IE). Anyway, Firefox for life, word out, peace.

    Author Claims Assassin's Creed Set-Up Was His Idea

    Gotta say, the Animus has as much in common with that guys "Link"-thingamabob as the chairs in "The Matrix".

    269: The Pasty White Person Is King

    You know, you don't have to play the games. Crowbarred-in "diversity" is a scourge.

    The Racism Blame Game

    If you're making a game, feel free to use whatever race, gender, age or species you want for the main character. What you absolutely shouldn't do, however, is shoehorn anything in in the name of diversity. That's how absolute dross is born.

    Notch Is Worried He Might Never Top Minecraft

    It's funny, because Minecraft was basically just an infiniminer with the gameplay removed, and rewritten in Java because some men just want to watch the world burn. He got lucky, rather than creative, is what i'm saying.

    Escorts Aren't Free

    I remember that quest. I was so pissed off when i had finished it, i gave the kid to the evil bandits that wanted to molest him, instead of to his father. Serves him right.

    Escorts Aren't Free

    I feel Fallout: New Vegas did NPC support really damn well. They're non-intrusive, they only occasionally get stuck on foot-high walls, and they're genuinely helpful, not least because of the unique perk they give you whilst active. And if you ever screw up and get them killed, they die (in...

    Before There Was Halo

    Sadly, being the best turd for the turdiest console and spawning an entire genre of turds, teaching a generation of gamers to like nothing but steaming turds, doesn't make up for the fact that it was, and still is, a turd. No matter if the controls worked well.
