Made of win and brilliance. This is by far the best comedy videogame video-review I have EVER seen. You put the AVGN and his imitators to shame.

I intend to nominate Yahtzee's bottle of cough syrup for an Oscar. Or Emmy. Or whatever ... a husky voice is like +3 to sexy. Not that I'm interested in him in that way or anything, but ... OK, time to go now.

I'm not seeing the article, here, just a description of it and a link to his site. Does this mean I've been judged and found unworthy?

Edit: oh, I see, it's video and I have to disable NoScript. Silly me.

That will also help us score ad impressions and thereby pay our bills and eat and stuff. So I'd kind of encourage you to do that anyway. But yes, it's a video and requires flash and scripts to be enabled. Content can be a harsh mistress.

I'm sorry, I'd really love to comment, but I have to fall down on the floor and laugh until I go into some kind of respiratory distress.

Wait. I'm going to watch it again first. Twing Twang!

The thing I most love about this entry, apart from all the things I picked up already from his brilliant Youtube stuff, was the slap to the face it delivers to absolutely every prentious gimp, on both sides, who I have seen post on the RE5 Racism front.
He seems to have summed up the view that I share pretty neatly.
(And by calling both sides of this debate "pretentious gimps," please feel free to understand that I have not seen every single piece posted on this issue, rather loads of ones that have grains of truth in but miss how what they've spotted fits into the whole thing.)

My household recently acquired one of those infernal machines. I am definitely going to have to investigate. Perhaps with the blinds closed.

NO YOU


I think you misunderstand me. What I meant to imply was:

1) Yahtzee checks the posts to his video
2) Yahtzee sees that it's full of people who registered for the Escapist purely so they could comment on his video
3) Yahtzee is filled with a sense of self-validation and proceeds to prance around Brisbane hugging random passersby while shouting enthusiastic greetings to kittens and small children and Jolly Mr. Sun.
4) Yahtzee takes to wearing shiny bling and driving big red cars while snorting cocaine off naked supermodels.

I don't believe YZ is the real hugging type.. I more picture him sitting in his recliner mouthing off to everyone telling them that he is kind of a big deal..

That however wouldn't suprise me, well maybe minus the cocaine - there would probably be lots of naked super models.

Cordelia, I get the strong impression that you're implying that the average supermodel wouldn't recognize or appreciate a Boris Vallejo or Freud reference! How insulting.

They might very well be intelligent girls. They're smart enough to take a free ride off of the lower-processing centers of the male brain.

Please, don't crush my dreams that out there, somewhere, is a woman who is both beautiful AND brilliant. They exist in books! And in movies! Inspiration had to come from somewhere!

If I may steer the SS Conversation back to "twing twang" for a moment..
I believe (or rather, I read in passing) that it refers to some form of crossbowery that the sidekick uh..does.
'Cause knowledge is power!

Alternatively, it is gratuitous lesbian sex. Yes, the guilt I felt at deposing the male fantasy was too great to bear even 30 seconds after typing this.

Man, over the past year The Escapist has gone from an occasional visit to main gaming-news source for me thanks to the abundance of interesting new content and fresh talent - and it just keeps coming! Keep up the great work, guys (and I absolutely love your reviews, Yahtzee).

Having watched the video (and the ones on YT) for a couple of times -- and laughing myself silly -- I felt compelled to register and heap praise. I've been writing games reviews for 20 years, but this one video just put everything I've ever written to shame. Kudos to you, Mr. Croshaw, and kudos to Escapist for signing your not inconsiderable talent. I shall be checking in on Wednesdays.

Good to see you're still doing the rounds there matey, and a great video (I also note your artistic ability hasn't failed you since the days of Rob Blanc!). Nice to see Australia hasn't taken your accent just yet.

Of course, the really important question is: have you actually played a game of Yahtzee yet, or do you still use the name without being fully educated in its meaning?

Twing-Twang is a "game" that the "Parkinsons Kiss Cat Girl" plays in which she shoots her bow (crossbow) and wins by killing people.

I bought the game just to know what it is.....Though the motion sensing arrows/bolt/everything you can throw is awesome.

BTW, KICK ASS REVIEW. Keep them coming.

Heavenly Sword looks insanely stupid (almost as insane and as stupid as I am *duhurr*) in so many ways.
Unless the comment about lesbian cunnilingus is true...
What?
I have to admit, that I never got through RE:4, because I got so frustrated with the camera angle flaws and not being able to attack while moving. Seriously, WHAT THE F**K is up with that? It's like playing a carnival game except no stuffed monkey.

i dunno, if you actually spend some time trying to figure out the controls to the game it becomes quite fun. its alot like god of war, but with the appeal of a female lead.

Quite funny and very informative for the critically thoughtful gamer.

By the way: as much as I currently despise Capcom with their recent Resident Evil disasters, if they throw out a black comic relief character in Resident Evil 5 whilst taking place in Africa, I'm starting a strike.

This was a great review of the demo

PLEAAAAAAAAASE review the full game. Its got some really fun shit in it, especially that TWING TWANG which I thought at first would destroy the games fun factor completely.. but with a bit of practice its the dogs balls as Yahtzee would say.. I hope he agrees !

Shooting dudes in the arse, back, head, knackers, feet, legs with slow motion, motion sensor controlled explosion-from-flame-capable arrows is a hell of a lot of fun, especially when they react accordingly in glorious 3D !

Two points of criticism. Nariko actually has two swords as far as I remember. She wasn't defenseless before using the Ring of Power... ehm... Heavenly Sword. This elegantly blends with my second point: the is three combat stances in the game (I think in the demo too?). Using only the Heavenly Sword is one of them. Using each stance at the right time against the right opponent at least delivers some depth... as far as I know more than God of War. With the right attack it is easy to dispose of the mentioned hat-bearers. Hardly any senseless button mashing, although the strategic aspect only really comes into play in Hell Mode... wonder where I've heard something like that before...

Barlog cannot sue another Playstation title, right? Hmm...

Cheers.

I had watched the zero punctuation demo awhile back and enjoyed the experience. Recently I just bought this game used for pretty cheap and played it all the way through and to my surprise actually enjoyed it. But something stood out that made me laugh out loud quite a bit. At the 3 minute mark of this video he mentions that Nariko cuts the rope of this huge column and crushes soldiers below "doing manly things such as arm wrestling and grunting". To my surprise I made it to the level eventually he played in the demo, and I bursted out laughing when to my surprise you cut the rope to this huge column and guys are actually below grunting and arm wrestling. Anyway I laughed...

Ok now I bored myself. Good Luck out there everyone.

a transcript to all of us who love yahtzee but sometimes he talks too fast for out slow brains.

And does anyone understand or know how to spell the reference to Nariko's hair O_O
the best I could come up with was "taechilatelly"

Edit: Thx for the spelling correction Tagliatelle = flat ribbion like pasta

Oh and for the RE 5 part

white as the "iven" snow is all I can make out, does anyone know???


Heavenly Sword and Other Stuff

At the end of July, a demo of the PS3 exclusive hacky slashy Maim-a-Thon, Heavenly Sword, by developers Ninja Theory, was released on the PS3 online market place thing. The game is luckily described as not merely a game but a martial arts drama in the guise of a game, But enough quoting from the Wikipedia page. Let?s see what the demo has to show for itself.

The game, sorry, martial arts drama is named after the weapon wield by the main character, extremely western looking woman with extremely Japanese sounding name du jour, Nariko. Although if you look closely you?ll notice that most of the time the heavenly sword is actually two swords, plural. Perhaps because developers felt they weren?t being enough like God of War.

Nariko certainly wears roughly the same amount of clothing as Kratos, in that she?s one protruding nail away from a Boris Vallejo painting. But after that the developers seem to go out of their way to defy the comparison. Kratos is possessed of no hair and a Y chromosome, Nariko has no Y chromosome and hair growing out about eight feet long, which flows jerkily behind her like a rope made out of dried tagliatelle. The whole effect does not so much as scream battle-hardened swords woman, as it does the phrase ?Try and pull this one off, Cosplayers.?

Anyway, the Heavenly Sword S demo uses the bold story-telling technique known as telling us ?Bugger all,? and throws us right into the game in medias res. We see Nariko standing on a cliff, looking down upon some prime river side property, soliloquizing some motivation concerning her father, and revenge, and how the place below her is full of evil dudes she intends to slit up. Of course at this point we only have her word for that. For all we know it?s actually a puppy obedience school with an unusually large security detail. But what the hell, ok.

Nariko then turns to some?thing, sitting vacantly nearby wearing cat ears and makeup apparently applied by a KISS fan with Parkinson?s disease, and relays to it her intention to slit up evil dudes. She then adds, with a totally straight face, ?We may need you to play Twing-Twang.? My first thought, when I heard that, was, ?I am so going to quote that out of context.? But on reflection it doesn?t make a whole lot of sense in context either. If the developers were hoping I would consider buying the full game to find out what Twing-Twang is, then mission fucking accomplished, I suppose. But I?m going to be very disappointed if it isn?t a cutsie euphemism for lesbian cunalingus. Yeah, I went there.

Moving on, our first taste of interactivity comes as we walk Nariko up to a support rope and press X when the game invites us to, at which point she starts running along it towards the compound. And the God of War comparisons return like a half brick to the skull, when the game has us do the whole button mashing reflex tester thing. I follow the games orders like a well trained west highland terrier and end up on a narrow rocky spire that despite its height and remoteness is judged strategically important enough to have an entire regiment standing on it. And so I have to stop mocking the game for pointless nitpicks and move on to the make or break part of a fighting game, the combat.

Nariko is swiftly surrounded on all sides, by about ten million guards, so I immediately leap into action and mash random buttons on the controller as fast as I can. I didn?t really have much of a strategy in mind but it seemed that Nariko was interpreting my button pressing as more of a helpful suggestion then an order anyway. She jumps around with her under dressed under nourished form, spinning all over the place like a bunch of coat hangers in a dryer. But the attacks feel laborious, and it seems to take a lot of blows to bring down each individual enemy. Especially when the guys with big hats show up who block nearly every move. Once or twice the game took control to show Nariko doing a quick fatality move on some poor twit. But the moments when she did this, didn?t seem to have any particular connection to the buttons I was mashing at the time. At this point the only drama in this martial arts drama was whether or not I was going to be able to finish off the crowd before my thumbs fell off.

Eventually I killed everyone on the big tall spire. And since Nariko wasn?t quite finished expressing her death wish, she then cut the support ropes that held up the big stone errection, and rode it down to the ground, where it collapsed upon a bunch of soldiers who were doing manly things, like arm wrestling and grunting. And if you?re seeing a sort of Freudian motif going on here, then rest assured you?re not the only one. Another armed horde falls upon Nariko and another less precarious battle takes place. And as soon as it?s over the demo ends. ... That?s all there is.

It?s difficult to tell with a demo this short, but somehow I don?t feel that the that Heavenly SwordS is going to light the world on fire or be the kind of exclusive title the PS3 needs right now. It?s difficult to have faith in a developer that feels the optimum amount of game play time for a demo is barely enough to boil an egg. It?s so short that I?m left with nothing else to say about it.

So let?s talk about the Resident Evil 5 trailer instead. The video depicts a white as the driven snow main character from a previous Resident Evil game, in this case Chris Redfield (who has apparently been making an income on the side smuggling cantaloupe melons in his upper arms), entering an obviously foreign and tangibly dirty peasant village, and getting attacked by a scythe and pitchfork wielding mob of bewitched locals. And if this sounds familiar to you then you?ve probably played Resident Evil 4. Which also began with a white as the driven snow main character from a previous Resident Evil game entering an obviously foreign and tangibly dirty etc etc.

I wasn?t really expecting them to deviate too much a format that has proved wildly successful, but Jesus Christ guys, you could at least try to mix it up. Judging by the game play shown in the trailer that too hasn?t changed much, and their still maintaining the fine Resident Evil tradition of dialogue written by a twelve year old ADD sufferer locked in a room with a pile of Buffy the Vampire slayer comic books. But I?ve danced around the major issue long enough, so let?s talk about the hot spicy racism.

Capcom has rather shot themselves in the foot by having the peasants this time around being African, thus prompting the inevitable demented honking from the politically correct. In an admittedly weak defense of Capcom, Resident Evil 4 wasn?t any less racist really, what with all the Spaniard murdering and characters unironically using the expression ?Ay yai yai.? But poverty stricken Africans are a somewhat different kettle of fish to greasy mainland Europeans. Still the games are after all made by the Japanese, and everyone knows what a bunch of xenophobic dicks they are.

Part of me feels that, from an artistic stand point, there may be some merit in RE 5, because the point of a horror game is to be unnerving, and forcing a player to do something distasteful as well as frightening is a rather ground breaking method of doing that. But then again, this is Resident Evil, the series that brought us a squeaky voiced midget Napoleon, and if there?s sophisticated in an idea of theirs, it?s probably a total accident. There tends to be a knee jerk reaction toward perceived racism in these days, regardless of intent or irony. And I don?t think we need to start worrying about RE 5 until they break out the fried chicken.

The Japanese are not xenophobic dicks and you deserve to die... OK, not really.

I have some Japanese friends and I must say this much. They have the world's most overrated video gaming ego. How can I say this? I've yet to lose to one that I willingly went up against. Did I enjoy it? What do you think.

I find that the animations make the videos that much better to be honest.
And I know some Chinese kids who accept their heritage as gaming masters and put all their victories down to it. I feel better knowing that they most definatly have tiny cocks.

I decided to watch this again after the Ninja Gaiden 2 review and I have to say that Yahtzee's voice sounds incredibly different. I also didn't find this as funny as I used to which is a real shame but I suppose that Yahtzee's raised his own bar since this was made.

Compared with many other video games, not really. Compared with actual literature, it's really pretty bad. This of course implies that most games come off even worse, so I guess what I'm saying is that most games are very poorly written.

Pretty much EVERY game these days is poorly written. I mean, a lot of them are either adapted from films (giving you very little to work with) or stolen from mythology (and regurgitating the Iliad along with lakes of blood does not a story make, as God of War so gorily points out), and the ones that have actually GOT a creative and brilliant storyline generally play like sacks of spanners. It's a rare game indeed that manages to mesh story and gameplay together without it becoming a horrible mess.

"We may need you to play Twing-Twang" hehehe love that part...One of the first Zero Punctuation videos I've seen..while admittedly not as good as his newer videos, ITS STILL YAHTZEE!! the same guy who has entertained us for hours on end with his fast pace talking and stick figures! So, while this is amoung my less favorite videos of his, I still like it, of course, it could break both my knees and shoot me in the face and I'd still like it more than the majority of game reviewers. -.-

And to think they gave Chris a African partner to dumb down the supposed "Racism" I agree with Yahtzee, RE4 = RE5 in the "racism" department.

The Japanese are not xenophobic dicks and you deserve to die... OK, not really.

I have some Japanese friends and I must say this much. They have the world's most overrated video gaming ego. How can I say this? I've yet to lose to one that I willingly went up against. Did I enjoy it? What do you think.
japanese are xenophobic dicks, stop your childish unconditional admiration for their popculture and really put them under the microscope, they totally are xenophobic, and dicks to foreigners. anyways the point of my bitching is related to this exactly, in yhatzee's video right after he says this, the next frame has written "(IRONY)", but i dont see the irony?

Three words. Absolute Top Class. Sprayed my alptop with coffee while watching this and nearly drowned on it. Well in!

After watching all the videos I've decided to start from the beginning. And might I say...Yahtzee didn't talk nearly as fast as he does now.

Pretty funny how tame this episode is compared to the more recent ones. Here, Yahtzee mentioning cunnilingus warrants a 'yeah I went there', whereas as recently as his Split/Second Velocity review he jokes about a hypothetical rich man getting his thrills from making poverty striken pregnant women try to eat each others' fetuses as nonchalantly as he would comment on the weather.

Not that I mind, of course. All in good taste, no?

Man, his voice has changed over the years.
I'd say it's at least partially due to a change of microphone but yeah, he sounded a lot less confident back then.
