Great little double-entendre snuck in there:

"and then it's back to text boxes which leave me confused and unsatisfied, which incidentally is how my girlfriend feels most nights and I refuse to accept that it's just because I'm THICK."

I lol'd.

Thanks much for the heads up on a game I might otherwise have missed seeing completely.
Is this the first gaming-related website you've perused since the game came out or something? You can't throw a brick without someone gushing over the game.

To answer Yahtzee's nitpick.
The reason some doors do not open, you'll notice it's only in the "Time and Place" world, is because you're approaching the door from the right (walking left towards it).
If you recall, walking left reverses the flow of time. For the same reason that jumping left on top of a goomba doesn't kill it, walking left with a key into a door doesn't open it. The game's rules of cause and effect require that time be flowing forward.

I agree that this particular mechanic was a little tedious and ultimately added very little to the gameplay, but it was far from an arbitrary mechanic, it served to illustrate one of the consequences of that particular time manipulation theme.

When shitier games cost three times the price of braid, I don't understand how you can complain.

I was eating corn flakes when I watched this... and well.. let's just say that half the bowl came out of my nose :S This was BRILLIANT pretty good! Maybe because yahtzee has some points of view that are similar to mine. Well, only 7 days till the next episode ^^

Not a bad review, though I was somewhat disappointed that he tried to garner so much negativity when he admitted that he actually liked the game. If he liked it so much, why focus on the nitpicking?

Ripping a bad game is hilarious, but bitching about nitpicks is just annoying. Just like the Portal review, it's okay to say, "Finally, a game that did something right."

I love how people comment on a video that hasn't been up long enough for them to even start watching it. STFU and watch before you comment.
I love how people get bitter that they weren't one of the first people to post.

We pay the '***** to the banks' tax. And we like it! Now bow!

Nice, earlier than usual! I've been trying to support the more independant game makers these days since they are the ones that are going to bring EA down. Anyways, I'm still wondering when/if your going to reply to this

Before any of you ZP enthusiasts go onto there and shout at people, remember this is a parody and therefor a joke. :) Anyways, great review Yahtzee, its good to see you bashing the fancy graphics! :D

If either 360 or ps3(fairly sure its coming to psn soonish) had paypal for online buying I could actually play this game. Ah well guess I'll go back to my generic shooters.

Funny stuff as always. Got in more originality than the few previous ones. Symphatise with hate of americans. (I'm not a terrorist, I'm european)
I think these more "intelligent" (I could never say it without quotes) reviews.

Well it's nice to hear he has a girlfriend. But I don't own a consle so I can only watch this video for entertainment value, which is alright I guess. He hasn't reviewed a Pc game for about 6 weeks me thinks...
