What I choose to take away from this is that a fact I have held from childhood is still true

Luigi > Mario

On a side note, those Toads are REALLY lucky that Luigi loves them so much.

But yeah, Luigi...Luigi all the way.

You could have at least been clever about it.

I was all ready to type up an elaborate paragraph with carefully capitalized words that, if used as an acronym, would spell a certain word.

OT:
Nice to know SOMEONE at Nintendo actually cares about doing something interesting.

Also this is the most erotic thing I have ever watched. Make love to me Yahtzee.

But is it as good as New New New New New New Super Mario Bros?


Also, the Gamecube controller is still the best controller ever made.

That was so homoerotic, I'm surprised C-3PO didn't make a cameo appearance.

Anyways, nice to hear Nintendo is doing something reminiscent of sentient, intelligent activity.

Hm. Makes the game look like something I'd like to give a go. I hope it doesn't have a boss as annoying as Boolossus got around the last 5 Boos.

On the subject of the Wii U and controllers and developers, I just want to make one quick point.

So there you go, guys, Yahtzee actually enjoyed a Nintendo property. You may all go mind your misplaced socks now.

Those buttons are placed awkwardly, not sure if want...

OT: Luigi's Mansion 2, definitely on my "want" list now, I have never played the first one, but after getting a gamecube controller and some GC games for my Wii a few years back, my only though was "I wish I owned a gamecube as a kid for the godly controller" Instead limited to using the beautiful controller at a friends house for some Super Smash Bros Melee.

If I remember correctly didn't the first Luigi's mansion have fixed camera angles? (Haven't played this one yet) Games with fixed camera angles complement one circle pads correctly, so it's no surprise the game plays pretty well.

I did have quite an affection for the original Luigi's Mansion, I may have to consider getting this one, if only in part to boost my 3DS's meagre library. Also I agree, I've held for years that Luigi is more awesome than Mario.

Same way they always do. They'll conveniently ignore everything nice he's ever said in favour of their narrative of outrage.

The restraining order prevents it. But I've said too much.

Which is awesome, as long as you don't want to play any games where there's some sort of primary tablet function.

Large amounts of homoeroticism and actually praising a Nintendo game...?

Yahtzee's having a midlife crisis, I think.

Does it come bundeled with the WiiU? What happens to all those touchscreen-features then (in games that rely on them)?
I'm genuinely interested, since I don't own one and it seems kind of odd that there are two controllers for one console of which one just lacks a core feature (touchscreen).

Well now you're just making personal assumptions about my character, Yahtzee.

OT: I own a sharp and pointy 3DS (for my sins) and to be honest I didn't give this game much of a look, having never played the original. However, Yahtzee's glowing praise is not a regular occurrence so I might just give this game a little look-see.

That's just an Xbox 360 controller with the right analog stick and the face buttons swapped round. It's hardly evidence for Nintendo's innovation.

Wow I laughed my ass off that episode, it's been a long time since i laughed so hard at an episode of ZP. From the repeated dick and sex jokes, to the look on the raptors face as Mario condemned him to a bottomless pit. Man that was just great.

Also I liked Lugi's Mansion on the Gamecube.

"No" and "You can't play them" would be the most likely answers. And the controller is probably not even used in games that don't use the touch-screen at all. It is most likely like the "Classic Controller" for the Wii: Just a remodelled GameCube Controller. Except this time, they ripped off the rough design from the XBox instead of making a slighly larger SNES controller with two sticks below start and select (which was a good idea!)

The Wii U Pro controller looks pretty nice to me, but I've never minded any videogame controller except maybe the first Xbox controllers.

Luigi's Mansion 1 is pretty much a 3 hour tech demo for the Gamecube, so jumping into this one is probably a better idea, so if you want to get some more use for gamecube controllers get Windwaker, Mario Sunshine or the Pikmin games.

OT: I'm glad Yahtzee can stand not to be biased against Nintendo games, I guess if they don't have all the issues he has with them, (Playing as Mario or Link, being on the Wii or Wii U) he can praise them. Though I guess we already knew that with his love of Earthbound.

There are only three Nintendo properties I know that I'll actually enjoy, Luigi's Mansion titles, Mario Karting, and Smash Bros. I am glad to see Nintendo finally caught on, now if only they'd made the game ported to a platform I actually own. This further makes me debate a 3DS, but I keep back-pedaling in order to upgrade my PC or get a big deal on Steam...

Got Windwaker (loved it) and Mario Sunshine (yet to play it) and I might get the Pikmin games later.

Also, I wished Yahtzee would review Fire Emblem: Awakening, but its a little late for that, would have been interesting to see what he thought of it.

As far as I know, it doesn't come bundled. I think it's a seperate controller to buy, like the Classic Controller was with the Wii. And like the Classic Controller, I think it can mostly be used in games without a primary tablet function.

However, that's the thing. Since this controller (and the default tablet) have the standard array of buttons, games can be made without tablet functions, without sacrificing the overall quality of the control scheme. Yeah, the Pro Controller is optional, but it's not like the Wii, where the default only had 4 buttons and a D-Pad without any add-ons.

Proverbial Jon said:

I wasn' saying anything on the subject of innovation, just that the Wii U has a comfortable, almost gamecube-esque controller option. Which I seriously hope more Devs pick up on. They can make games that control as normal, but have off-TV capabilities for those using the Tablet.

Or maybe use the tablet in other ways, like jsut making it a menu screen, but give users of the Pro Controller a regular menu screen (or transparent overlay) to use.

Since he same number of butotns are standard, they won't be losing money on people who don't buy the pro conroller, since they can sill play it on the tablet, even if the game doesn't have tablet functions.

And wasn't the Gamecube using a controller with similar buttons? Minus the second and third shoulder buttons, of course. I mean, standard controllers haven't really stretched very far since the days of the Gamecube. The most radical additions have been increasing numbers of L and R.

Eh, I would like to play Luigi's mansion DM thought I am currently ...
Well lets say I was already 'sucked' into a really good game.

A game that is called Fire Emblem: Awakening.
And it is DAAAAMN good.
Hopefully Yahtzee can review it, but meh ... I'm enjoying it too much.

I just might get the new Luigi's Mansion if my wallet allows me to.

My guess is that he doesn't like the franchise much because of all the shit he got for not knowing who Marth is. While he's recently liked turn-based games, (and admitted so) the animu style, and cliched story might turn him off. Maybe he tried Sacred Stones with the ambassador program, but that's unlikely. Also Fire Emblem came out in PAL regions some days ago, but I'll guess he's going to review Dead Island: Riptide next week.

Maybe Nintendo saw those reviews and made 2013 the year of Luigi so they can sway Yahtzee over to his side, Nintendo will gain Yahtzee's trust and then... one night, while Yahtzee is asleep, Nintendo will knife him. After that they'll release New Super Mario Bros. 3,4,5,6,7,8 and make Link to the Past 3,4,5,6,7.

So what I'm saying is I hope Mario & Luigi: Dream Team will be an enjoyable game and I hope Yahtzee enjoys it.

I had a feeling this one would fly by Yahtzee's critical spectrum wearing a 'I survived' T-Shirt.
Not many people I've spoken to dislike it. And especially those who didn't even place the first one. They're surprised this is a sequel.

Edit: hit the wrong quote button that first time.

I honestly hope he does review it. I've already bought the game on release, beaten it a few times, and messed around with some DLC, but I would like to see his take on it since he normally hates JRPG's.

The game isn't perfect though, I know he would point out the dick move of an enemy spawning and moving the same turn.

I think I'm too tired because I seem to have missed all those erotic jokes in this video that everyone keeps talking about.

OT:
I was a bit skeptic before buying a 3ds but it has quite a lot of games now that I want to play and I'm pretty happy with it (though my hand really does hurt sometimes when using it for a while).

I'm powerleveling Panne at this very moment because she is married to my PC (the only female character I had no immediate intentions of strangling with her own intestines) and I want the child to be not only a literal beast :D

The game isn't perfect but my gripes are a little different... due to my positioning I was only once fucked over by respawn (in chapter 13). My problem are the female characters... At this very moment I hate every one of them (haven't played past chapter 13 though) with the above exception. I just saw each and every one of them so many times in bad anime / manga and I don't even watch many animes to begin with (was forced once by a then girlfriend to sith through some). But at least the gameplay is quite solid and the possibilities are there for customisation.

I remember playing the first Luigi's Mansion when I was 7 and being too afraid to finish it. I finally played through it 2 years ago and loved it. This is now on my buy list.

Also, Yahtzee isn't the only one to make homoerotic jokes.

They're already making LTTP 2.

OT: Anyone else notice that the offshoot Mario games are the best ones? Luigi's Mansion, Mario & Luigi, Paper Mario(barring Sticker Star). All superior to the main series.

Also, was that a compliment towards Nintendo consoles in order to make a dig at the others for their social network components? Yahtzee, you sly devil.

Oh yeah, forgot about that, I have an American 3DS so I downloaded it via eShop.

Hope it comes up, but I presume next week will be (as ex275w pointed out) will be Dead Island, a game people will all too happily see him rip a new one.

Wait a minute... ONLINE MULTIPLAYER IN A NINTENDO GAME? One that isn't necessarily competitive? (see: Mario Kart and Smash Bros)

*SIGH* If only the 3DS wasn't so allegedly difficult to hold and demeaning to play on in a public setting as a 20-something-year-old, I would buy it for this game and Super Mario 3D Land (or Super Mario Bros. 3 in 3D, more like). Heck, I'd even sort-of want to get its Lego City, DKC Returns, Sonic Racing, Pokemon Mystery Dungeon, and Fire Emblem games!

Just to say, no matter what, do not let a character die. You will regret it. Not in gameplay, but you feel like shit later on, because you couldn't save that one little mage, and Nowi is now stuck being all alone because I failed to keep her husband alive and and and...

I promised myself I wouldn't do this...

Anyway, this was a pretty fun review. I figured he'd have some nice things to say about it, since his review of Luigi and Luigi: Luigi's Inside Story told us pretty well his opinion on the second of the two Mario Brothers.
Maybe Nintendo saw those reviews and made 2013 the year of Luigi so they can sway Yahtzee over to his side, Nintendo will gain Yahtzee's trust and then... one night, while Yahtzee is asleep, Nintendo will knife him. After that they'll release New Super Mario Bros. 3,4,5,6,7,8 and make Link to the Past 3,4,5,6,7.

So what I'm saying is I hope Mario & Luigi: Dream Team will be an enjoyable game and I hope Yahtzee enjoys it.
They'd make Link To The Past 3 before making Link To The Past 2? Impressive.
They're already making LTTP 2.
Wait what? Seriously?

Can I have a link to some info on that? If true, it entirely slipped my radar.

And strikes me as a bit odd. They haven't gone with numbering since the second NES game, and even then it had a different title in addition to the number.

...and ALTTP already has a direct sequel in Link's Awakening.

So yeah, I'd love to see a link to that, because you have just succeeded in baffling me.

I'm glad he liked it. I find the gameplay really refreshing (there's not much on the market like it) and as he said Luigi is a really charming character in this.

The multiplayer is fun too.

Happy at Yahtzee's reaction :p

I don't find the 3DS difficult to hold but then I have tiny hands so maybe its a big hand thing.

OT: Anyone else notice that the offshoot Mario games are the best ones? Luigi's Mansion, Mario & Luigi, Paper Mario(barring Sticker Star). All superior to the main series.

Also, was that a compliment towards Nintendo consoles in order to make a dig at the others for their social network components? Yahtzee, you sly devil.
I think we can all agree that the 3D Marios are always amazing to really good. Sadly they're always pushed in with the crap known as the NSMB series. But yeah Mario offshoots and the 3D Marios are always the best ones. I can agree that Mario 2D Platformers have been routinely shit to mediocre, though.

OT: I see Yahtzee hasn't got the uber-comfy 3DS XL. Seriously, the XL is the best feeling handheld I've ever held, mainly because I have massive man hands.

Well now you're just making personal assumptions about my character, Yahtzee.

OT: I own a sharp and pointy 3DS (for my sins) and to be honest I didn't give this game much of a look, having never played the original. However, Yahtzee's glowing praise is not a regular occurrence so I might just give this game a little look-see.

Enlong said:


That's just an Xbox 360 controller with the right analog stick and the face buttons swapped round. It's hardly evidence for Nintendo's innovation.
And the 360 controller is just a dualshock 2... and the dualshock is just an SNES controller with thumbsticks and and two extra shoulder buttons.


With that said though, I'm not that fond of the WiiU pro controller. The placement of the right analog stick was a really bad idea.

I have this theory that Yahtzee actually is homosexual, and he's only pretending to be pretending to be gay tongue-in-cheek style to throw us off the scent.

I'm on to you, Yahtzee!
o.o





.
Y'know, I actually enjoyed Luigi's Mansion on the Gamecube, so this might be fun. Too bad I don't have a 3DS and would never buy a piece of hardware for just one thing. If anything, this review made me want to break the Gamecube out of storage.

Just a message to those who like Mario more than Luigi.

Luigi was always my favorite, and I'm the older brother and wasn't forced to play as player 2. Kinda surprised by the review and laughed a few times. And for some reason Luigi and the homoerotic jokes work really well. But that's natural. Dat mustache.

Enlong said:

It actually looks quite good. Here's a 14 minute gameplay video.
It should be playable at E3 and release by the end of the year iirc.

Well, I gotta admit the 3DS' original design was pretty terrible, if they had just smoothed out the corners and made it matte instead of plastic it would have been really good.

...huh.

I wonder if it's gonna keep the number title in the end. I hope not. It should a least have a subtitle to go with it.

Anyway, I wonder where it can even go as a direc sequel. I mean, in the end of A Link To The Past, Ganon's dead (not sealed, dead), the world's been wished back to peace, and Link put the Master Sword back in its seal. What is left, one wonders?

Well, Reggie said it's an entirely new story, so i'm guessing Link'll have some new evil to fight. Either that or they'll choose to retcon the first game's story entirely.

Yahtzee, if you want a 3DS that doesn't dig into your hands, for the love of god, get an XL; I love my XL. Bigger screen than the standard 3DS all my sisters have, nicely rounded corners, and a better battery life.

OT: I may have to put this on my Christmas wish-list; any game Yahtzee has actually liked is a game I usually end up enjoying, myself. It was Yahtzees praise of XCOM that got me to buy that, after all, and perked my interest in Spec Ops: The Line. Picked up Fire Emblem: Awakening today, though, and I would be curious what his opinion of it would be; I'm liking it so far.

Oh wait, there is no confirmed title for the game yet. So it'll probably have a new title, just like each game since the first.

I figure it's likely to be similar to Spirit Tracks; a "sequel" that takes place in the same world, but generations later.

I think his hate for most Nintendo titles came from his absolute LOATHING of the Wii. I can think of 2 titles that he liked on it, Mario Galaxy and I think No More Heroes, even though others still got rave reviews from this very site, he just couldn't stand the Wii.

This episode needed more blowjob jokes. I feel like it was just a little under the amount necessary.

I never played the GameCube version, but I have been having a really good time with this. It's kind of like a nice, low-impact sort of point-and-click adventure game. It's a great game to play when I'm in the mood for something like that. Plus it gives me an excuse other than Fire Emblem to use my 3DS.

If the 3DS is going to be Nintendo's go-to platform for resurrecting their dead franchises, then come on Big N, Startropics 3. Look, it even has a 3 at the end! You can make it big and bold on the cover to signify it's both the third game and on the 3DS on that same clever way everyone does!

I did have quite an affection for the original Luigi's Mansion, I may have to consider getting this one, if only in part to boost my 3DS's meagre library. Also I agree, I've held for years that Luigi is more awesome than Mario.
If you liked the original you'll like this one. That's the only reason I bought it and I have it next to me right now.

OT: Yeah, Luigi is actually pretty adorable in this one, which helps you sympathize with him. He's still accident prone too, and you kind of feel bad when he gets hurt.
The controls will piss you off a bit though.

Yahtzee has said lots of good things about Nintendo in the past. He's had nothing but praise for the Gamecube and has said that Metroid Prime, various Paper Marios, Mario Sunshine, Mario Galaxy, Wind Waker and even Twilight Princess were all good games. Stop being so surprised that he liked one of their games.

It's an innovation of laziness and theft, that's what it is. As for Defiance, the show's good, the game's sort of 'meh' as I heard it. I enjoyed Luigi's Mansion on the Gamecube and Luigi didn't come off as a wuss, but putting on a brave face for the challenge he had. So how did Yahtzee approve of this game and give the other Mario games crap?

Seriously, he tends to ***** around a lot about overused IPs but in general he never actually calls the games bad. Most of the times, it's actually very valid criticism filled with vitriol for comedy's sake. It's just that fanboys get their panties in a twist for even the tiniest opposing comment as if nintendo can't go wrong. Makes them fail to realize that yahtzee rarely calls the games bad.


Still, them fanboys are a bit on a high right now. I hope he reviews Fire Emblem next week to get them back to earth again.

Because the X-Box controller looks nothing like a GameCube controller? There is only so many standard designs for a controller that are functional. The GameCube/Xbox share the same basic format.

well there's a few periods of time between LttP and OoS/OoA, and between OoS/OoA and LA that aren't filled in.(after LA there is a huge timeskip but LttP/Oo?/LA link DOES make it to wherever he's going)

immediately after LttP link assists around hyrule and runs errands for the triforce (leading to him getting warped to holodrum and labrynna), and there's the short period of time after the oracle games where LA's backstory mentions him attempting to fight ganon again before setting off on the boat.

and then there's the fact that vaati is still alive in that timeline, it's possible that he manages to escape the four sword, and if the ending of LttP is to be trusted, Fi's Master Sword is never used again in that timeline (not counting the ones from the oracle games, since they are just regular swords made by ordinary smiths) so it would give us a legendary sword to use. (there's also Dethyl, the wind fish's nightmare, the final boss of LA is specifically stated to draw from link's memories, and dethyl's final form is the only creature that LttP link has never seen AT ALL, but it does look pretty similar to some of vaati's forms)


my theory is that it's either just after LttP and we deal with vaati breaking free, or just after the oracle games and ganon frees vaati, prompting link to find another way of killing ganon and starting LA

it's unlikely to be during the timeskip between LA and LoZ because during that time period, the royal family was actively using the triforce to keep the peace

Well... Pleasantly surprised indeed. I think I may finally let you off the hook for Uprising, Croshaw. I honestly thought you were gonna gloss over this without doing a review because you didn't hate it enough, like you did for Sonic Colors.

But yeah, now that you weren't a totally unreasonable prick to my March-released, 3DS-based pick for GotY. Different game in a different March in a different year, but the principle still stands. Same 3DS though. Haven't gotten an XL yet.

(And before anyone jumps on me, Portal 2 was my pick for 2011.)

Yeah, Luigi's Mansion is just a big old ball of crystalized fun. It even helped get my non-video game playing girlfriend into video games (well, after playing Jak and Daxter a whole bunch), so nevermind that "casual gaming has to be stupid mini games" cliche. Hopefully by this time next year, the Wii U has some games as good as the library the 3DS has right now.

Yahtzee liked a Nintendo game? Why are people acting like this some great revelation? He actually likes quite a few things Nintendo has done, if you've been paying attention. In fact, what I like about this review is that it's a kind of culmination of the pleasant attitude he's had toward not only Nintendo, but the Mario franchise itself.

Look, Yahtzee doesn't hate the Wii (and Wii U) because he hates Nintendo; he hates them because he thinks they're gimmicky and stupid. Yahtzee doesn't hate Smash Bros. because he hates Nintendo; he hates Smash Bros. because he thinks fighting games are shallow and uninteresting, Smash Bros. especially so. Yahtzee doesn't hate Super Mario games; he just feels they've become staid, overused nostalgia traps, however competently made. He doesn't hate Zelda games, only the new ones that don't add very much (he actually liked Wind Waker and kind of liked Twilight Princess). I could go on.

And even if he did hate Nintendo, there is ZERO evidence to suggest that he hates them as a company more than Microsoft or Sony (quite the reverse, actually). I just wish fanboys on either side would just shut up bitching about things so much. A large part of why I can't take the video game industry seriously is the fans.

On a related note, I definitely agree that Mario spinoff games are much more appealing than the mainstream titles these days. They're quirkier, more creative, got more personality, bolder art styles, better humour, more story...Hey, Nintendo, when 2nd party companies are doing Mario Bros. better than you, you're doing it wrong.

Yahtzee's having a midlife crisis, I think.
Or perhaps he's just afraid of getting burned by the PS4, NextBox, and women, so the alternatives are starting to appeal to him :D

And honestly, the way things are looking, Nintendo may be my console of choice this gen. At least they still care about making game FUN. Also, great vid! I always felt bad sacrificing yoshi for double jumps. Not bad enough to stop doing it, but still felt guilty.

Completely agree with the Gamecube controller, the only controller my hands love hugging. It's a shame the Gamecube didn't get more love though I reckon that's because it was competing against a giant with an amazing library.

And funnily enough I didn't want to buy the 3DS because it's so thin and sharp.

You know...I'm really thinking that I should sell my Vita for a 3DS XL. I can play Zero Escape on the 3DS now, I really don't need portable Ninja Gaiden games, and I can sacrifice what Golden adds to Persona 4 in order to have Luigi's Mansion, Fire Emblem, Etrian Odyssey, SMT games, etc. Not to mention that I wouldn't need to re-purchase my regular DS library in order to play them on the 3DS. I think I'm ready to pull the trigger on this.

"I think I see how the Nintendo flowchart works. Question 1: Are you an entirely original property? If yes, sod off!"

I'll take that as a confession that you're too lazy to go onto the 3DS' eShop then Yahtzee.

It amazes me how even when he reviews a Nintendo game he actually likes, he still manages to say something stupid that blows his credibility.

Look, Yahtzee doesn't hate the Wii (and Wii U) because he hates Nintendo; he hates them because he thinks they're gimmicky and stupid.
Only because he's proven time and again that he can't work them properly for whatever strange reason. I've had a Wii since Day 1 and can only count two or three times the controls were a problem. His complaints w/ holding the 3DS does not help to convince me either.

I can admi that Nintendo hasn't made a lot of new franchises in a while, but they're not opposed to new properties coming down he 3rd party pipe.

Which is why I'm glad for the Pro Controller, as it means that 3rd parties who don't want to deal with the tablet or wiimote don't need to.

Well that was disappointing. I was expecting a pun.

I guess you could say I was dealt a...

*puts on sunglasses, and crosses legs*

stiff hand.

YEEEAAAAAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!

(and yes, it does somewhat work, maybe not the best pun, but it was the best I could come up with in the short time I had).

Eh, I would like to play Luigi's mansion DM thought I am currently ...
Well lets say I was already 'sucked' into a really good game.

A game that is called Fire Emblem: Awakening.
And it is DAAAAMN good.
Hopefully Yahtzee can review it, but meh ... I'm enjoying it too much.

I just might get the new Luigi's Mansion if my wallet allows me to.
And while I agree with Yahtzee needing to review it, because if he got past the anime characters I feel like he'd really enjoy the gameplay, I can say that I finally beat it, and so I am free for a few more games now.

Just to say, no matter what, do not let a character die. You will regret it. Not in gameplay, but you feel like shit later on, because you couldn't save that one little mage, and Nowi is now stuck being all alone because I failed to keep her husband alive and and and...

I promised myself I wouldn't do this...

Y'know the two conditions that would have lead me to buying the 3DS were a new Fire Emblem game that was actually good, a port of Disgaea 2, and hopefully the release of a successor to Grasshopper Manufacturer's "Contact." I'm curious about the new Fire Emblem and would like to see a Yahtzee review of it though. I've been a fan of Fire Emblem for a long time. Especially the GBA title simply labeled "Fire Emblem." Aside from The Walking Dead's Clementine, Nino is the only child in gaming i wouldn't shoot in the face the moment i saw her.

Yes, I also once got told off for making up swear words by my mum and not just swearing.

I knew I was watching too many ShackTac ARMA 2 videos when I start hearing the clinky running sounds when walking outside. Also going to buy dinner at night after watching all the episodes of DayZ Ahead.

Luigi is also famous for this

I would love it if there were this big reveal that E. Gadd turns out to be this monstrous villain.
Think about it, he enslaves all the ghosts with horrid mind control power, but when they liberate themselves (and never actually harm anyone, as they keep to themselves in the mansion) E. Gadd kidnaps Luigi and forces him to imprison all the ghosts in an itty-bitty living space.
E. Gadd, worst super villain Nintendo has ever known.

Aww now how can Nintendo fanboys accuse him of just being biased against Nintendo when he eventually gives Zelda:Another One a bad review
What are you talking about?

He's given many Nintendo games good reviews before. He's even mentioned that he's a big fan of the Paper Mario series. Having a bias isn't the same thing as automatic rejection and even we retarded "Nintendo fanboys" know that.

In fact, by assuming that he'll dislike the next Zelda game without knowing anything about it, you are the one painted him as a biased reviewer incapable of judging Nintendo positively regardless of what they release. Are you saying that there's no way he'll like the next Zelda even if it turns out to be really good?

It was a joke based on his SSBB, Kid Icarus and many other reviews where a good chunk of the comments are just accusing him of not liking Nintendo by Nintendo fanboys who honestly can't fathom why someone would dislike a game they like unless they're just biased against it.

Obviously not because it was a joke. The fact that I said the next Zelda would just be called Another One probably should have been the hint for that.

Wow Yahtzee, you must really be hurting for a Tripple A survival horror experience. I doubt LMDM really scratched that particular itch.

One: Not everyone who disagrees with him is a fanboy. He can still hate on the game and have stupid reasons to hate it. Like being unable to work the controls, something I refuse to believe not even he can have a decent defense for anymore when he bitches about games I've played for control that don't exist. Not to mention critiques that are just petty.

And two: I've said this countless times in regards to the Kid Icarus review, especially after he went on a tirade in Extra Punctuation about he has this so-called journalistic integrity. You don't get integrity by calling the people who actually like the game "twats" about a minute in. Nor do you for generalizing every single detractor of yours as a "fanboy." That's called "arrogant."

Anyway no I don't think he's biased anymore. I do however think he's pretentious and doesn't do his research considering, again, he makes a joke about how Nintendo doesn't make any original IPs that much anymore yet if he'd go into the eShop, he'd see they made the Pushmo series, the Dillon's Rolling Western series, Sakura Samurai and HarmoKnight to name a few examples.

Well, it was only inevitable to finally realize that they've milked Mario so much his teets are raw. Luigi, toadstool and the Princess should get some decent spinoffs now that Mario needs some time to heal up.

I shall harness the energy of this artificial singularity to power my mighty battle cruisers and rule the galaxy!


Anyways, the fact that Nintendo made a game that does not come with an attachment to whatever is almost astounding or maybe they made the Australia-only "vacuum" attachment.

I...

I was expecting to walk in here with a pathetically lengthly explanation of why Luigi's Mansion is a good game and defending it from Yahtzee.

I'm surprised. .. it sounds like he likes it. A Nintendo game. Wow.

Crisis averted. And now I have the befit of always sexualizing Luigi in my mind. That mustachioed one sure can suck!
.. No... no.. that other mustachioed one.

Maybe luigi is the future of the mario franchise.
Perhaps it might. Like Yahtzee said, he's the only character allowed to have any spec of personality. And he seems more like a complete character on the grand scheme. I really hope Nintendo gets what we like about him and don't run this opportunity into the ground like they did before.
