Why the hell is he ragging on Myst? That game was awesome (though the subway puzzle in the Selenic age was hair-pullingly frustrating if you didn't know what you were doing).

Well done, you shrewd man.
Though you said you never did play it at the time, it couldn't have been a distraction while your mother was drinking booze....
Overall, I wasted five minutes of my life on a (review of a) game that I never heard of, played on a console I'll never acquire, and don't care about.

that was actually buckets of fun. I've been meaning to try an actual castlevania game (sad, yes I know) might be time to pick one up

Another fantastic review, but I must say I didn't expect you to review a retro game. I expected socom 4 by the opening, but perhaps that is something you can do next week?.

Awesome! I've been playing it recently and am doing the inverted castle at the moment, it's pretty annoying though so I've left it for awhile. Not to mention, you know, Mortal Kombat hasn't left the PS3 since it arrived at my door.

It would be great if Yahtzee could do Mortal Kombat, I'm pretty sure legal-wise he'd be fine. Nobody over here seems to have had any problems with it.

It's safe to say I was not expecting that. In fact, I even prepared a big rant on you not bothering to play any of the multiplayer for Brink...

My afternoon is ruined.

Should just point out that the backwards Dracula thing was originally done by Universal Studios in 'Son of Dracula'... guess what his name was ;)
Good to see another retro going through the ringer I guess.
