OT: I still don't miss the WWII shooters; I've died enough in little French villages, I'm not inclined to go back any time soon. Here's hoping the industry branches out to different wars. I'd love to play a Napoleonic game where you're a Spanish irregular picking off French supply columns and seeing what it's like to fight a guerrilla war against invaders, rather than the other way around.

Interesting point there, Jim. It does indeed seem like quite a while since we last saw anything World War II. I'm sure all too soon we'll be begging for a break from it again.

I was eagerly anticipating the hilariously dark turn in Yahtzee's poem, and sure enough it came.

You get a streak bonus if you watched a Jimquisition earlier this week and then chain this into A Zero Punctuation later. I've got to grind points for the final boss of the Escapist, Zombie Russ Pits with his polygon attack.

That dark turn, how glorious. It's also about time we finally had Yahtzee and Nazi rhymed in poem form.

From now on, I will adopt Yahtzee's point system in my everyday life, with the added bonus of not being in The Matrix or toiling away in a mine later.

Loved Jim's ending as well.

I feel like I'd get more stuff done and be a better person if that point system existed in real life.

What if I watched Zero Punctuation first? Is my streak ruined? D:

You lose the style execution bonus but your multiplier remains intact. It's all about knowing the combo system. I suggest you spend 300 hours perfecting muscle memory and refreshing pages until you don't scrub out like a casual.

Well we do have Red Orchestra 2; one of my favorite multiplayer games at the moment. It even takes place in the Battle of Stalingrad, which I don't think is covered anywhere else in the game industry except part of the Russian Campaign in the original Call of Duty. Plus they also put out the Rising Storm expansion, which covers the Pacific Front. I don't think that's been covered in this industry since Battlefield 1942!
