Yahtzee's rules for the top 5 are that he has to PLAY the game in the year it came out, not necessarily do a full review of it. He put Steel Battallion: Heavy Armour in his bottom 5 back in 2012, and only briefly glanced upon itAptspire said:Well, I can't say I'm too surprised that the new Rock Band game isn't particularly appealing, even with the 'solo' feature. Seems like those games rely on "technique" and the solo doesn't have much.
Can't you just put a giant "Spoiler alert" before a ZP Undertale article? I mean, you've technically talked about it in Extra Punctuation. Right now, it doesn't seem like Undertale will be allowed in the Top 5 (it hasn't been reviewed yet.)
(Before saying I'm off-topic, please look at the last 5 seconds of the video, thanks)
Give me a reason why that isn't spoiler-iffic. The art style, music, and combat system are not valid reasons, because I don't care for any of those very much.gillnavisingh said:But seriously though - BUY UNDERTALE. IT'S SO GOOD!
Yahtzee himself indicates that the writing is excellent, and it even got him to tear up a bit at the end of the true ending. If the game's story, complex characters, humour and clever subversions of gaming tropes doesn't sway you, then maybe you'd like the fact that this game plays you more than you play it because it knows what actions you're liable to take one way or another.SlumlordThanatos said:
I thought he said in his Extra Puncuation this week he can't do a full review, because there's basically a massive game coming out every week for the rest of the year and UnderTale really doesn't have enough meat on it. Its all of two hours long and is basically alright.LordTerminal said:Did Yahtzee just hint at an Undertale review? Okay maybe now I'm a little tempted by this....
