Funny review as always. I seem to remember a zelda esque game in the psone era called monkey hero that pretty much followed the same story but i may be mistaken
Dynasty warriors doesn't destroy chinese epics. besides those same people make romance of the three kingdoms which is far and leagues more tethered to accuracy. Dynasty warriors is just good fun and taking fair liberties. Ya know something a creator should be given a chance to do?Seqgewehr said:What is up with games trying to destroy Chinese epics? I'm looking at you Dynasty Warriors!
It must be for the same reason that they try to destroy every epic story they get their hands on.
Arkley said:Tearing down other peoples work is still criticism, even if he really is amusing about it. He does reveiw games and what he says does shape the opinion of the veiwer. I certainly would not avoid a game he dismisses ( if I did, I never be able to play anything since Infamous). However, in the past, there was a mix of praise and disdain in his criticism, and now he seems to be in a rut of disliking everything he comes across. Don't get me wrong. I love his rants and delivery. His cynicism and wit bring on a wry smile almost every episode. If it didn't I wouldn't be watching. However, I also would like to know what he enjoys a little more. All I ask is a splash of color to contrast with that dark stain of his soul.tyriless said:do[/i] real reviews, that's not his job and that's not what people watch his videos for. You don't watch these vids if you want an actual opinion of the game, you watch them for a laugh, to hear about all the bad bits of it explained with hilarious vulgar analogies. The real humour comes from knowing that all or most of his criticisms are based on fact. For example; even though I actually really like Enslaved, it's still hilarious to hear him describe the platforming the way he did in this video, because I experienced it myself and thought similar things while still enjoying the game as a whole.
TL;DR: if you want a real review, watch something else, or better yet, demo or rent it and form your own opinion. If you want to laugh at hilarious analogies, watch Yahtzee.
