Both poems were great, but I'd like to see Yahtzee's written down. The rhyme scheme, if it was regular, was very difficult to follow. I thought it was a limerick at first, like his Wolfenstein review, but now I'm not so sure.
I concur. It was hilarious, to be sure, but it was hard making sense of the rhyming scheme.

Jim killed it though (as we say in the streets).

While both were good, I liked Yahtzee's more. Jim had more structure, but it was the asymmetry of Yahtzee's rhyme that did it for me. So...

WHO WON? WHO'S NEXT? YOU DECIDE!


EEEEPIIIC RAP BATTLES OF HISTORY!!!!


And I reckon Yahtzee's asymmetric style was cool, but Jim had the passion and the force.


Also fuck always-on DRM.

Am I the only one who thinks poetry is stupid and the escapist must be getting desperate?

Yeah probably, this was an awesome idea.


Also this article should have had a poll asking who won =D

Is it just me, or does Yahtzee have that absolutely bat shit crazy gleam in his eyes on multiple occasions in this?

Oh. My . God.


I've had an Account for Months now, and I haven't posted a single thing on the Forums. Always silent, watching.

But this. This! When i Read that Jim and Yahtzee are both in the same show AND THEY ARE DOING POETRY i was screaming like a little girl!

This. Was . Epic.
Welcome to the forums. :)

OT: This is fantastic. I figured I'd give it a go after Jim tweeted about all the praise. I'm glad to see I wasn't led astray. :)

I was choking back tears by the end of that magnificent performance. All music and art is nothing to me now, as we have reached the peak.

...Unless there are more episodes.

Now I have a whole new reason to look forward to Wednesdays.

This was definitely neat. Keep it going.

I would love to see Jim and Yahtzee coordinate so the video could look like they are reading at each other, exchanging lines. Maybe as a special episode or something.

I listened to Yahtzee twice because something sounded off. I don't know what beat Yahtzee was hitting/trying to hit. I didn't get it, but that's probably me not understanding that style.

Hoping for more!

At first I was pretty impresses by what Yahtzee was doing, but by the end of Jim's segment it felt like it was just beating a point that I've already heard a hundred times before. If they can keep up original material for this it will be good I think.

Great stuff. I didn't actually expect to like it but I ended up enjoying it a lot. More please!

That was certainly interesting. I feel like Yahtzee had the more clever poem. It wasn't until about halfway through it that I realized it was about the PS4. The Diablo 3/DRM bit just seems a little stale.

I thought Yahtzee's rhyme scheme was pretty clear, ABAB CDCD etc..., much like a sonnet. Jim's just had couplets which we are all more familiar with from rap or Dr. Seuss.

I wonder where this series is going to go. I'm intrigued either way.

Yahtzee takes the cake for having the most expressive(psychotic) eyes. Jim, your poetry is sound, but something is lacking... Maybe I just have a bro-crush on Yahtzee's psycho-eyes... Or jealousy masked by compliments and praise...

Well, that was...unexpected. Cool, but unexpected. Yahtzee, if you could just keep your head straight we'd have a new hit on our hands.

After the Escapist Expo last year, I found myself thinking that Yahtzee and Jim had a surprisingly good chemistry. I almost wish they lived closer together, so they could interact in the video, but hell, I still really enjoyed this. Yahtzee's PS4 metaphor was great, and Jim's scathing indictment of always-online requirements was top-notch, as always. I'll be interested to see where this goes. Can't wait for next Wednesday. :D
