Rather enjoyable, but the lack of the usual toss-ins during the end credits kinda of spoiled it for me. It made me think that Yahtzee only authored the first part, and then had the Imps handle the selection and inclusion of the actual quips/analogies/etc.

But again, I'm willing to forgive if only because that was a refreshing change of pace.

Yahtzee, I don't need 5 minutes to contemplate how much of a tosser you are like the rest of us. Also the Red Steel 2 quip really isn't that good enough to be on this list. Especially not when the "Go watch my Mario Galaxy 1 review while I just sit here slapping myself" bit from his Mario Galaxy 2 review was funnier. See even in reviews I hate, he still manages to be funny.

Also a better Dead Rising 2 quote to use is "Oh okay, I'll just leave you inside that zombie's mouth for an or two while I go to find an ATM. Hang on there survivor, I forgot, did you say you wanted money or to be punched in the face by flaming boxing gloves because those I've got."
There was a better quote in the SMG2 review, in my opinion. It went: "This is something we used to call an expansion pack, in which Nintendo calls, KA-CHING!" That one had me rolling the first time I heard it.

Instead of watching clips clumsily edited together, I spent 5 minutes in silence contemplating whether Yahtzee's videos have simply dropped in quality or if the novelty of them is starting to wear off, and either way lamenting how I'm not as big a fan of a single source of free entertainment as I used to be.

Then I wondered what it would take for all his internet fans to unexpectedly and violently turn on him, like they did with MySpace.

Then I wondered what the hell I was doing and scoffed a couple of Quality Streets.

I was hoping to hear the Sims 3's chocolate cunnalingus machine quote =[

Also, if your back in the UK... MEET UP WITH REBECCA MAYES!

Okay, here's my analogy:

Saying Zero Punctuation is the best thing on Escapist is like saying sex is the best part of life or that orgasms are the best part of sex. It's all pretty bloody obvious, isn't it?

After seeing the ending, I remember why I don't read books: they're more boring than video games, and MUCH more boring than watching Zero Punctuation.

Picked up the funny quips and I salute you for that.Especially like the "War" ones with "I AM A MONSTER TRUCK THAT WALKS LIKE A MAN!",freaking hilarious.

Anyway,Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to you Mr.Croshaw and to everyone else on Escapist!

It's been a dry month anyway...

This would make for a fun little quiz though: What ZP snark belongs with which game?

Only one I think is missing is Just Cause 2's "why? beats the fuck out of me!". And wasn't that one about "pink shirt? oh no, shit's getting real!" this year too?

How dare you Yahtzee trying to have a week off? Your job includes playing video games! I bet I can guess what you're doing right now! If I had your job I would never take a day off and everyday I would be doing overtime, hell screw paying me just give me another game, food and a place to sleep!

Edit: Its like asking for a day off when your job is pleasing the vaginas of the supermodels we send you!

Hmm...so thats what it feels like to rant like Yahtzee...oops wait forgot the vagina joke, done!

/sarcasm

I will admit Im a bit disappointed he didn't get to review Fable 3 before the new year

Best clip show intro ever. I was honestly expecting that it would be just 5 minutes of watching that screen with no audio though, which would have also been funny.

I did not know he had the week off. So it was unexpected, but in a good way I suppose. I found it mildly amusing. Was really kinda looking forward to a review because I haven't heard of...well, anything coming out lately.
You should watch last year's episode. He almost literally told us to fuck off because he was on holiday. Then reminded us that its was summer in one last middle finger to his norther hemisphere fans.
