I am so confused. Thank you for taking one for the team. I'll pass on this game.
Since when do you decide who can use a story as an inspiration? Don't be such a dickAlissaX70 said:I'm glad he mention how this game was NOTHING RELATED TO JOURNEY TO THE WEST!!
Anyone wanna tell me why Western culture has this fascination with that story?
Leave that story to Damon Albarn, Ninja Theory...

Dude, you don't have to buy it if you don't like. It is a DLC... which means free to buy, but not necessary. It is just an add-on to the game, nothing else. Why is this so hard to understand for some people?Kserijaro said:And come to think of it Fail Ninja Theory is making new DMC
Maybe, but not everyone likes Fallout.qdr said:Oh, and by the way, nobody gives a flying duck about this game anyways, since FALLOUT came out like TWO weeks ago.
Both of you, Theolos and you, are wrong. He is not a real reviewer therefore his reviews have no weight. A real reviewer take a look at both sides of the object and does not rant only about the negative point with curse words. This trent of Angry reviewers totally blinded people and stop them to think about the subject, because they think that they are right, which is wrong, because, like I mentioned before, their reviews have no weight. If you want a REAL reaview, read it in the magazines or on trustfully websides, which take it seriously to inform people about games. But to say that Yahtzee as like the Nostalgic Critic or Spoony is a real critic is more than silly and shows that you have no idear about the definition of a reviewer.GrinningManiac said:Theolos88 had a good point: Yhatzee sometimes mentions good things, but his goal is not to critique but to lampoon for comedic effect, so sometimes you get the feeling he's trying to tell you the game's good without actually outright saying it.
How about you stop with the cynicism and the "I'm So Witty" attitude? I'm really sick of that around here. It's spoiling the enjoyability of the forums
He's just mad because Yahtzee decided not to review Fallout: New Vegas this week (not that I wasn't hoping he would, too, but I'm not going to get mad about it. Instead, I'll just hope he'll do it the week after ^.^).GroundBreakah572 said:
There was also No More Heroes 1, Saint's Row 2, and a few others. But mostly he just does critiques on games, not reviews.tyriless said:I starting to have an issue with Yahtzee and his criticism. He recommends nothing. I am all for him verbally dressing down the excesses of this industry but a critic tends to recommend something now and then. Now, I am not asking for him to go easy, but for Christ sake, he needs to find something he likes. The last game I remember him recommending was Bioshock and that came out years ago. Even in that case, he said something along the lines that, it didn't suck too bad so it must be GAME OF THE YEAR. Without any positives recommendation, his reviews tend to be less criticism and more observational humor. There is no purpose beyond his humor if he can't, once in a while, stake his rep on a game that he thinks is actually good. No flames please, or personal attacks. I am just looking for other thoughts on this issue.
Let me refer you to the "Mailbag Showdown" video as to why Yahtzee doesn't do a scoring system.Theolos88 said:It's hard to tell a good game from a bad one with Yahtzee... I understand, that its not the goal in these ranting reviews, but maybe some kind of shitometer would be appropriate to tell is the game worth buying or not? For instance other reviews of C:LoS made me quite confident i wanna play it. And watching Yahtzee's episode about it i can really tell no difference in the attitude in comparison to this one.

Unfortunately, a very, very similar game to Yahtzee's idea has been made, albeit horrible. It's even a shooter, but instead of Yahtzee's idea, you sling-shot food into the mouth of various animals. Terrible execution.Fronzel said:Actually a game really loosely based on Noah's Ark might be interesting.
Ahhh i remember playing that one. lolValiance said:bladeleaper said:That Noah's Ark game sounds awesome! lolUnfortunately, a very, very similar game to Yahtzee's idea has been made, albeit horrible.

It's a lot worse than it sounds, and I know it doesn't sound that good.
Skip to 13:20 in this [http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LkNvQYiM6bw] video for a quick review on it that sums up how much balls it sucks about as well as I could.
It could be pretty cool if Fronzel's idea became a game, even if only as backstory as to "why this game takes place so far away from earth" or something.
Anyway, great video by Yahtzee, laughed out loud in so many sections especially the "Well let's just forget about Journey to the West, because the developers did!"
