An excellent attempt but failed to execute properly... into an empty Olympic pool.

Still, best explanation for regening health in the last year.

I hoped you'd do this one this week, and I was not disappointed. Absolutely brilliant!

I remember a game like this that was called Stubbz The Zombie. That game was great, this one, eh.

Oh my god! If the bugs were worked out of the gameplay mechanics by a competent studio, I could see this turning into a really fun Deadpool-like game. Seriously, the gimmick is sort of funny and works perfectly for his character while making use if his immortality.... And now I want it made. lol

Man I'd like to watch this video right now
But apparently so does everyone else on the PLANET has the same idea.
Bees, my God!
How they managed to fail so hard at implementing such an interesting concept leaves me absolutely...

Over-enthusiastically acknowledging the mention of an obscure oldschool game I've played!!! (decap attack)

Never even heard of this game until now. Well gotta give the development team credit for trying to do something original. Pity it was just poorly executed.

Yes, Neverdead has moments of extreme irritation and frustration associated with certain mechanics i.e. getting decapitated by a slight breeze. Despite that though, I did find the game entertaining enough to stick it out to the end. Not a great game, but something definitely worth playing.

WTF WHY NO MASSEFFECT 3?

anyone who pays attention to his show would know that games release much later in Australia than they do pretty much everywhere else.

This game still sounds as great as it sounded at last year's E3. I want to play it, I think I the "porly executed" part might actually be in a minority as opposed to the "fun, creative and funny" part. I'm even more curious to find that out now, hope I'm not wrong about it.

And even then, it's about 2-4 weeks between release and review, depending on how busy Yahtzee is. Portal 2 had to wait 3 weeks and there was massive buzz about that.

Never heard of this game before today, and I'll probably forget about it by tomorrow. Geez, it's a slow start to the new year in terms of games.

In addition, anyone who pays attention to his show would know that he does episodes one or two weeks in advance of them actually being uploaded, what with playing the game, scripting, animating, and recording.

As Mass Effect 3 came out yesterday in the states -

And doesn't come out until the 8th in Australia, there is no possible way that Yahtzee would have been able to do an episode on it. In fact, there's probably a good chance he won't do Mass Effect 3 next week either.

EDIT: Oh right, on topic: Very amusing. I had forgotten about this game, which did sound like it had an amusing and unique gimmick for once. Too bad it was executed so badly. Poor or frustrating gameplay is something that will really turn me off of a game.
