If I see another "first post!" post, it's a ban. - Joe

See, I should have gone home from work 4 mins ago, but I thought "No, I'll watch the new Zero Punctuation".

That's how dedicated I am!

And I did make me chuckle. Good work... AGAIN... Yahtzee.

Oh and seen as its me, here's the unwarrented spam I seem to always post:

Peggle is a bit like ZP, an amusing timewaster for 5 minutes, or something you can watch endlessly over and over again all day because you seriously don't have anything better to do at work.

I don't see why it's so addictive either.
I really hate Prinnies. That F-ing "DOOD" can only be said a certain number of time dammit.

Good Work Yahtzee, though personally I didn't know what the hell this game is about.

I take it "monstrously" is being used in a slightly sarcastic context - I never even heard about it before now, in sharp contrast to other monstrously successful yet edgy games such as Bioshock or Great Giana Sisters.

Anyway, the hilarious exposition on casual gaming in general was great to watch. Cat trying to fly a kite indeed! The only video game I've ever seen anyone from my family play beyond the "heehee stroked the controller for 15 seconds but not for me sorry" stage is Brain Academy and only because (a) it makes nice beeping sounds when you get it right (b) saying things to that doctor Kawashima is awesome! and (c) the "I still have a 20 year old brain and will prove it" argument.

You obviously don't use Steam, MSN or any major feed for casual games. Casual games are way more popular than games like Bioshock, in part because you can start playing them for free. There was also an "Extreme" version of Peggle that came with a pre-order of Orange Box, where you got Valve-themed puzzles and Bjorn the Unicorn had a headcrab on his face.

Yahtzee you charismatic stallion. (Pardon bad spelling, but thats my latest most quoted phrase.)

Another Genius Review, we share it around the work place every week and all get laughs out of it.

I tried out Peggle after hearing the PC Gamer team rave about it during a podcast. After maybe five minutes, I wanted to shoot myself. After shooting the PC Gamer crew for going gaga over such a horrendous piece of crap. Stay away from Peggle.

Peggle haunts my dreams. I lost about two weeks to the game. There's just so much right about what Popcap does.

Anything with that many colors and that much cute that uses the drug dealer business model (the first taste is free!) has no soul. It has no soul because apparently it found a way to not only sell its soul, but to suck the souls from people playing it for hours on end funneling them into some abyss that looks like hell, if hell were decorated by circus clowns. They are the Stepford of gaming. They are evil inca...ooo look! Bookworm! I haven't played that in awhile.

10 quid says reviewing peggle is a not so subtle way of buying time while Yahtzee tries to come up with new and inventive ways to shit on Halo 3. It's going to be epic I'm sure. :D

You might think Peggle is a bad game, but you're wrong. The gopher tells me every five minutes it's _totally_ radical! Why would a gopher lie to you?

And apparently, I also have "mad skillz".

Good review, but forgot to mention that Popcap are a bunch of hypocrital, wanky criminals. Yes, criminals.

Any evidence of this criminality of which you speak? I mean I could call various people child molesters...but because I say it doesn't make it true unless I can back up what I say and they are indeed pederists.

Not saying you can't back it up mind you, just saying I'm more interested in seeing evidence of such than accusations.

I decided to try some "stuff" with some of my buds and the first thing I wanted to do when I got back to my dorm was to see what it would be like when I played Peggle while high. Turns out it was really amusing, especially once the orange pegs start blinking at you, and the unicorn pisses you off more than normally. Still, the game does get pretty old after a while, but it's a nice thing to bust out while waiting for a lecture to start...better than some crappy flash game. [Orisinal.com is the exception to this rule]

I was shuttering when i saw that Yathzee, had reviewed Peggle, imagining that he would make a good review of it, becoming a kind of mainstream-zombie. But thankfully he was forced to it, and didn't willingly do it.

Well, maybe 'criminal' is the wrong word. There's just an awful lot of IP infringement going on over there which isn't particularly legal. And they tend to rape the IP of small companies whom they know full well haven't the cash to fight back. Search for the history of Zuma in relation to Mitchell (a small Japanese developer who actually came up with the game before Popcap ripped it off.) Popcap also have a game that's a direct rip off of Guru Logic Champ, another little known Japanese GBA game. And there's plenty more instances. It really wouldn't surprise me if it transpired that Peggle had been released in Japan in 1995 under a different name and Popcap just ripped that off too.

As for being hypocrites, the boss of Popcap was in the news recently berating companies that made clones of Popcap games. Can you imagine!

I can't really back up the wankers comment, but there's enough evidence in the above to suggest it's true ;)

I knew that Yahtzee would never review Halo 3 this early, he's too good for those "mainstream" games. Another member thanks to Yahtzee ^.^

Once again Yahtzee, you manage to completely throw me for a loop by ending up reviewing games I least likely expect to be reviewed and then die laughing during the subsequent shitstorm you launch upon it.

I found the same loss of time when I first discovered Sudoku and it didn't even have pretty colors. I'd argue at least its helping my brain, but lets face it, adding up 9 numbers isn't exactly tough and you don't even need to be able to that, you could do it with a collection of any 9 symbols and it would all work the same.

Good review as always.

I preordered Team Fortress 2 through Steam and got Peggle Extreme, a 10-level free version. An hour later I bought the full version. I became its *****.

Only yesterday did my TF2 playtime finally surpass my Peggle time.

Peggle?

PEGGLE?!?!

What the fuck are the editors of Escapist smoking, making Yathzee reveiw a bloody casual game, and what's more, the simplest causal game out there!

Yeah, it's popular, but so's Solatire, and you really can't say anything about Solatire, since everybody's played it, so everybody knows what it is and what it's like.

That's the thing, reveiwing a game everybody's heard about is, well, dull, since everybody already knows what it's about and what it's like.

I mean, can't you reveiw something with some meat, something that you can actually talk about?

How about Ico?

Sly 2?

Resident Evil 0-4?

Hey, I hear there's this game called Halo 3, just came out, supposed to be pretty big, maybe somebody out there might have something to say about it, say, some Bristh born Aussie who likes to tear games a new one, even the good ones?

Honestly, hundreds of games already out there, and at least a few dozen worth buying coming out soon, so what the fuck is he doing reveiwing fucking PEGGLE?

YOU CAN DO BETTER!

Hmm Peggle eh? I believe I ignored that as I downloaded my preordered orange box about 5 minutes ago. If it's that much of a soul sucking doom game I may want to steer around it. Also guy who posted before me I think you're assuming he gets to pick the games he reviews and I don't believe that's the case. Also I would think people would want Halo 3 to sink into the populace a bit more before they go off talking about it, especially with it being such a big release.

Edit: Good job Jer you completely forgot to say "Good job Yahtzee clearly we are but ants in the face of your glorious magnificence." There we go. Alls well.

I'm morally certain that Yahtzee can review any game he likes; it's just he won't get paid for reviewing things he hasn't been asked to, and no matter how simple the animation is, it's still very time consuming to do, so he's not likely to be slipping in half a dozen extra reviews on top of the one with a paycheck and a deadline attached to it.

You probably never heard of this 'Peggle' game before because reviewing a game like this is a form of advertising.

You've seen it expertly ripped on, now you're curious, "What could that game really be like?" On top of that, you feel like you might be missing the joke, so you want to see and not be left out.

And thousands of new hits are steered toward that game.

Me personally, I've played too many addictive games that aren't any fun at all. You initially want to play it, then you just want to finish it, and then you just want to get it over with.

Over the past few years I've often just stopped playing games and taken them back to one of those trade-in places. I get to some retarded hit-the-red-pixel-when-it-flashes Boss Battle resurrected from a lame arcade machine from the 80's that was designed to eat quarters to continue, except I already paid for the game and the designer wasn't creative enough to do anything but copy what was done before, and I think to myself, "You know, I really don't care THAT deeply about saving the princess/dog/world/brain/etc." and then eject the offending disk.

Well these reviews are now starting to go downhill. Making fun of Peggle and casual games is like making fun of Britney Spears. Any no-talent hack can do it because the jokes write themselves, and in the end it's only as entertaining as repeatedly watching the same trainwreck. What's next week's review? Minesweeper and Windows' other included games?

So far Ben Croshaw has been a one-trick pony in his reviews, but at least up until now it has been a one hell of a clever and amusing trick. I hope he can recapture the magic in his next review or at least go in a different direction with them.

Is there a text version of all the episode of Zero Punctuation?

I can understand most of what the guy with the hat says but lowering his intake of crack wont hurt I presume. But seriously, he talks so fast that if I have trouble understanding a word or two I lose focus... but not interest ( it's weird I know ).

So anyone else know where to find some text version... or some video editing program that can slow the audio of the video in questions?

Article, sure.

Review, no.

And I hope to god you're not trying to get me to believe that Peggle is in any way a good game along the lines of Freecell.

If you didn't notice, Yathzee spent maybe 1/6 of his review actually reviewing his game, I'm not gonna call that an exact measurement, but it does show that, well, you don't really have much to talk about with Peggle.

Hell, there are free flash based porn games out there with more gameplay value than Peggle!

I'd be happy to spend the rest of this post bashing Peggle, but it really isn't all that bad, just really a lot more shallow than most other decent games, so I'll get on with what I'm actually mad about: Why, why, WHY is Yathzee made to review a damn casual game?!!?!

The whole point to his videos is that he talks about games, and though it's mildly interesting to see what he does when given a game in which there really isn't much to talk about (and he does a decent job of it, too), I still would greatly prefer seeing his talents put to better use, reveiwing actual games that have things you can actually talk about!

Editors of the Escapist, I beseech thee: WHY?

The Peggle review is a disaster. Peggle is Ben's Ishtar ... or Gigli if you are too young for that. In the future, when Ben's wildly funny and insightful reviews become famous, we will look back on the Peggle review as the episode that never should have been.

Has Ben sold out? My instinct is to say that Ben has jumped the shark and is speeding down the road to "shittytown" as the man himself would put it. Yet it's clear that it was Escapist's idea to waste Ben's considerable talent on a highly simplistic no-depth game.

You can tell dear 'ol Yahtzee is not into it. He talks slower than his previous reviews. He drifts across different topics. He tells us there's not all that much to say. At least Ben's honest, and that's good for all of us.

Here's what happened. Some muckety-muck at Escapist played Peggle. The muck liked Peggle. Yay! Peggle is fun. Peggle is popluar. So Ben should review Peggle.

The road to shittytown is paved with good intentions and faulty logic. Listen up Escapist. Know your brand. Know your audience. Cater to your audience and you will succeed. Here's a lesson:

Yahtzee fans - sophisticated gamers looking for a sophisticated reviewer

Yahtzee - a sophisticated reviewer who can write sophisticated reviews

Peggle - simplistic game for simplistic gamers that does not benefit from a sophisticated review

Don't ask Ben to write weak reviews about simple games. That's a waste. It insults Ben's talents. It tells us that you folks at Escapist, or at least one of you anyway, does not know your market.

Using Yahtzee to write a review about Peggle is like telling Picasso to use an Etch-a-Sketch.

Ben's probably going to keep his mouth shut because he's swallowing a load of cash to do this. Listen to us, Escapist. Don't waste Ben on peon games. Keep this up and folks won't read the reviews. That means no website visits, no clickthroughs, no traffic.

Use Ben wisely. You'll be richer for it in the end.

The Peggle review is like a fart at the dinner table. It comes. It goes. Let us forget that it ever happened.

I tried playing Peggle once a while back. Fortunately I was smart enough to simply download the trial version. I must admit, I like games like this for the trial version. They let you play for an hour, but in reality as long as you don't quit the game you can play indefinitely.
Peggle is one of those games that somewhat irritated the hell out of me cause there seemed to be absolutlely no skill involved. I read reviews of people who managed to finish all the levels and clear the board of ALL the pegs, and I thought, "Why would you even attempt to do that?"
I also noticed that they used the music from "Joyful, Joyful" probably because it's in public domain, and they didn't want to pay someone to create something original.
Cutting corners, and bringing the addicted users back for another hit, that's how PopCap makes millions.

Trillions. Well, maybe billions. At the very least, it'd prove time travel is possible.
And it would have to be transported ever so carefully so as not to dislodge a single metal file.

I've noticed a lot of people posting here seem to thing his Review is some sort of harbinger of the Yahtzee apocalypse or something. I dunno, it wasn't my favorite or anything, but I enjoyed the exposition of the casual gaming industry, and I haven't detected the severe drop in quality that everyone seems to be talking about.

Oh well, maybe I'm just not critical enough. Next week I want Yahtzee to review Way of the Samurai so I'll feel a little bit less like I wasted days of my life maxing out every single type of sword.

Hmm, yeah I don't, and am pretty glad about that. I have a strong allergy to DRM. The only game I have which is connected to one of those detestable services is Halflife 2. Anyway, I didn't know you can play casual games for free initially. Nintendo better send me my money back for those casual games they developed and sold to me then :).

Anyway, the viewers shouting "one trick poney" and calling this a sell-out or lesser work should consider that the general framework of any animation series are always the same and thus are subject to the viewers becoming used to this framework. Only the content changes, and I do believe Yahtzee has been pretty varied in that area so far. Some might interpret this as boring, others might like it as the animation stays true to itself - cfr. the debate about whether or not the upcoming Fallout 3 is a real sequel to Fallout 1 and 2. It's all good for debate but, in no way can this be seen as one trick ponyism. Because if that were the case, then The Simpsons, South Park, Fairly Odd Parents, Happy Tree Friends, ... are all one trick ponies as well. Didn't stop them from being pretty successful.

Truth be told, I only needed to watch the animation once to get the message rather than twice previously. So either Yahtzee is slowing down or I'm getting used to the tempo and rhythm :).

The google search has left my soul desolate. I can now only pine to whatever gods may be that my eyes may be plucked from their sockets and my memories of that hideous moment erased.

Btw, nice review, though I would advise The Escapist against having Yahtzee do any more casual games. We already know the formula, almost fun, very addictive, doesn't cost a fortune. The review is summed up in the genre, we really don't need to hear exactly what we already knew even if it is funnier this way.

I did a double take while watching this week's review. The image used for the "University of Smartarse" is my fucking office. For serious. I work on the second floor way on the right hand side of that building. It's the University Center (aka Doak Campbell Stadium) at Florida State University. Hurray for accidental shout-outs.

I agree with most of the sentiment that is floating about. The Escapist did a bad thing by commissioning Yahtzee to err... "Review" Peggle. He himself said he was "thrown when [The Escapist Magazine] asked me to review Peggle."

His heart and soul were not in this one. Kudos Yahtzee, for still making me laugh.
No Kudos to The Escapist Magazine however. Ask HIM what he wants to review... He'll be much funnier that way.

Just my $0.02

Huh. A curious thing I've noted: all of Yahtzee's recent reviews have ended with a note about or a reference to human reproduction in some way. That includes Console Rundown, BioShock, Tomb Raider, Manhunt, and now Peggle. I wonder if it's intentional.

Regardless, I look forward to this Wednesday.

Seriously, that review was bad.
I don't want to flame Yahtzee, cause I can tell he is doing his best, but when he says after a minute that thats about it, he really isnt kidding. Seriously, Peggle? This is not the kind of review I like to see. BioShock's review was great because he found so many different things to say about the game, from is graphical effects to gameplay elements to System Shock 2. Peggle has .. almost nothing.
Please, please, please, pick something else next time thats more complex, like World of WarCrack or Supreme Commander, any of the Orange Box games.

I hope the editor learned something from this: Don't make your journalists (aka narcissistic pricks) review things against their will because it shows in the quality (or lack of quality, rather).

Also, the Popcap plugging could've been a little more subtle. I know their PR machine works around the clock, but enough already!

For the record though, I liked this review. Why? Because it's different. It's kinda funny to see Yahtzee work when he doesn't want to, which makes this video unique, and his comments about casual gaming are pretty thoughtful and worth remembering. I think he did very good with what he had.

That's not to say every video should be like this though, cause then it would no longer be unique.

Dragon Quest IV: Chapters of the Chosen
Need For Speed: Underground
The NHL Series
Any bloody PopCap game

Seriously I bought the "Pop Cap Hits" disc for PS2 recently and I'm an Astro Pop fan!

As for the review you can't help but understand why he spent more time talking about the company and not the game. I did a review based on the web version on another site didn't really have much to say about it to be honest.

It is arguably one of the better ways to waste time when you don't feel like doing anything else(or something you are SUPPOSED to do) and I even played the sequel "Peggle Nights" and enjoyed that trial as well.

Do I plan on buying the games? Yep and especially considering that a DS version of Peggle comes out next year I'm really jazzed for that to see how it works out. My guess is its going to be a little harder because its a smaller screen but I can only hope and pray that they put that game in in another "Pop Cap Hits" disc in the future.

Good review altogether though

I'm pretty sure Bigfish is bigger than PopCap. Most game sites mention or redirect to BigFish & they pretty much have every 2D flash game ever made, & just when you think you'd found one they're missing, it shows up a few days latter. They also have 5 buildings in Seattle, if that means anything. Why are almost all game companies in Washington? I could go on a tour of them if I wanted.

I tried Peggle. After 5 seconds I was already bored to tears & switched to Aveyond, whis is listed as a casual game but is too much like Secret of Mana/Zelda/Chrono Trigger/Final Fantasy to be listed as such.

Peggle is now on XBL, but to support the evil team (with more money) or not? hmmm lol

Holy smokes, Yahtzee almost sounds like he's on weed speed-wise here compared to his most recent videos.

Apparently I go to school at the University of Smartarse. Glad to see that Yahtzee's a 'Noles fan.

Holy thread necro batman.
Is necro batman a zombie?
Batman isn't a zombie! He's our lord and savior who rose from the dead along with Jesus to fight off those rocket-launcher-wielding ninjas! Just like the Bible says!

BATMAN DIED FOR YOUR SINS

Gotta love these early reviews. I always go back and watch a couple of them whenever I'm bored on this site.

New stuffs great too though.

Episodes like this, while basic, show cased what ZP is all about. Nothing really negative could be said this week because there isn't much to the actual game. When Yahtzee has something meatier, he can highlight every flaw, to show no game is perfect. Here, all he can do is talk. Still funny though.

It's funny because my mom can whip my..butt at almost any video-game we play. And I am pretty good at games. She is a hardcore gamer geek and thus, so am I.
I guess I can't really say "and thus" as though it was inevitable, both my sister's wound up as hardcore divas instead so I guess I was the only one to inherit that awesomeness. At leased I don't really have to share my games now.
