Hehe, there were a few lines that got me laughing out loud. "A child wielding a power tool" and "and my own retardation." That one was pretty good Yahtzee, not that you'll ever give a shit about us saying this =P Oh and Sight Jacking, with the eye fapping off at the computer, hilarious stuff.

Also...very unexpected game choice, and don't do Riddick next week! Pick another game!

Quite average, but these "complete surprise" reviews now and then are a nice break from mainstream.

Were all the characters really that bad?

[/edit] I also liked that he actually spent almost the whole review talking about the bloody game rather than starting from an utterly arbitrary viewpoint, see Little Big Planet and/or H.A.W.X

Never even heard of this game?

Funny review, though. It does sound like it could have been a decent game, had it been handled right.

"It would have to fire white hot shurikens and still it would be better than Siren one"

Also I figured seeing as he's trying new things he could try Pokemon Platnium (Even if it is yet to be PAL released...bloody Americans...)

Do you do anything but *****? I swear you were something like the third comment last week saying it was bad.

I don't see why everyone has a panic-attack as soon as he reviews a game that isn't well known by everyone. Do none of Yahtzee's fans have imaginations?

Oh wait, Spyalt you have already answered that for me.

Pretty good episode. I stopped after a few chapters because
A: It stopped and started too much
B: I hated alot of the stealth sections set outside
C: It look up frig loads of hard-drive space.

Sight jacking always seemed useless to me because once you have jacked someones sight, figured where they are and tip toed the way there werent looking they have then changed positions completely and see you anyway.

It's amazing people haven't heard of this...it's pretty much the best survival horror game since Silent Hill 2.

In reply to these people who insist that 'this movie is godawful', are you sure that you're not just being tinted by an overwhelming desire to see clone #8454 reviewed? Seriously, I like the idea that he made an unexpected game choice - the mainstream tends to pick up a lot of shit along the way. I liked it, good work.

I don't agree. I think that Yahtzee does a good job trying to ensure that we get a sense of actually playing the game was like, and there's no way to get a game that everyone has played, anyway. Hell, he even stated in the beginning that this game came recommended to him by fans of the survival horror genre.
I thoroughly enjoyed this review, as I find I do most, or I wouldn't keep coming back. I like Yahtzee's jokes, especially when he pushes a boundary like racism or sexism, and I find that his review are quite well constructed as opposed to reviews that list the gameplay, graphics, story, in that order. I'm not saying those are always bad, I just like a review style that switches it up.

Yahtzee picked a good-looking game from off the mainstream which deserves to be applauded, not ridiculed by people who wouldn't recognize a good game if it came up and bit them in the bum. They also seem to need to learn proper english, God awful is TWO words!! Learn to speak before you humiliate yourself again.

You both have avatars from Japanese videogames.

So racism is your argument. Nice one mate.
I think he was suggesting that their criticisms are invalid because they are (presumably) otaku-esques who will fiercely defend anything Japanese-made to the death.

Not really racist... generalization, definitely.

How is it racist? It's the common denominator.
That does not make it not racist. Instead of challenging what was said or giving your reasons why you choose to disagree you instead made a pathetic and snide comment. It doesn't impress anyone.

Thankyou for being possibly the only person on this thread who disagrees with me and gives valid reasons why instead of flaming me.

Actually his argument is that you're biased towards Japanese games. I don't see any mention of racism
Care to prove that I'm biased towards them? No thought not, try harder next time.

What the hell is Siren Blood Curse?
Why haven't I ever heard of this game?
When did this game come out?
How did this game beat Riddick to the chopping block first?...Oh right, Riddick's not out yet.

This wasn't the best review but it was funny in one or two places and by funny I mean it made me crack a weak smile.

Survival horror is dead to me. Silent Hill 2 was one of the scariest and most immersive games I've ever played and the only game that has come close to since was Silent Hill: The Room, right up until the game pulled the dick move of "Now you must do all of the levels again".

All we have now are spring-loaded cats and gore with no attention to atmosphere, pacing, story or character development.

At least now developers seem to be getting zombie games right, ala "Dead Rising" and "Left 4 Dead".

Even if the review isn't 'funny', it still makes some good points.

Namely: why jump through event hoops when the end result (getting shot) can be achieved organically (by getting shot by the cop earlier, during gameplay, rather than at the predetermined cut-scene point)? That is, indeed, a retarded design decision.

The phrase "Yes I was. I resent that, I used to be a Yahtzee fan but saw the light and changed" suggests you changed from being a fan to not being a fan. So yea, I interpreted because that's what people do when you make such a vague statement.

If he thinks the remake was bad, he should try the original.
Clearly Japanese people, ALL of them with distinct britannic accents on their english.
It was friggin hilarious. Siren at the end of the day, tho, is less survival horror, more survival puzzle game, and needs to be played as such. The story, when you piece it together, is one of the best I have seen in a game. No happy endings here.

This so called 'review' blew major piles off ass, every joke was worse than the last one. And again, yahtzee goes with his "Oooh...It's good, but it's still sucks!" momento for wich I wanna break his fucking skull. Silent Blood Curse isn't amazing, but it's a nice work on the horror gameplay, since this time you need to survive more than go gun crazy.

the whole second person perspective has been done many many times on many unsuccessful games, but one successful game i would like to note is geist, unfortunately for only the gamecube. if released on other consoles, im sure it would've done spanktastically well. but it wasnt, and they failed. it was a very good game though, the storyline forces you to become a poltergeist, hence the title. and you can posses a variety of things to do certain things. like possess anything from a mop and bucket to a series of explosive gas-canisters or humans. with some very nifty weapons and multiplayer gameplay.

I'd never heard of this game, and even though Yahtzee didn't think too highly of it I at least want to check it out now. Unfortunately it appears that us Americans don't get the luxury of a disc-based version and I'd have to buy a bunch of these episodes, as opposed to getting it off of Gamefly or a friend.. if a demo exists, I'll check that out.

To me, this week's ZP is all about the masturbating eyeball.

Spyalt said:

Humor, like taste in video games, is subjective. Just because you find the deconstruction of an unknown game to be unamusing because it isn't Halo or something doesn't mean someone else can't see the humor in it. Given that he's a reasonably successful presence and has done so at least partially through comedy, as evidenced by his awards [http://www.fullyramblomatic.com/], it seems to me that he would have a better idea than what is generally funny or what is not than either his guttersniping critics or his fanboys, both of whom are likely held in equal contempt. His opinions on fans are well-known, and I think that, like you, he'd appreciate a well-reasoned counter-argument more than a critic saying, in essence, "YOUR NOT FUNNY STFU." Then again, success in and of itself might not be the best barometer. George Lucas is relatively successful, and his recent success was due to him sodomizing his franchises.

Going by popularity and/or visibility, Yahtzee should review Naruto Shippuden Ultimate Ninja Fanboy Fapping Package 4 next.

Humor, like taste in video games, is subjective. Just because you find the deconstruction of an unknown game to be unamusing because it isn't Halo or something doesn't mean someone else can't see the humor in it. Given that he's a reasonably successful presence and has done so at least partially through comedy, as evidenced by his awards [http://www.fullyramblomatic.com/], it seems to me that he would have a better idea than what is generally funny or what is not than either his guttersniping critics or his fanboys, both of whom are likely held in equal contempt. His opinions on fans are well-known, and I think that, like you, he'd appreciate a well-reasoned counter-argument more than a critic saying, in essence, "YOUR NOT FUNNY STFU."

Thankyou for being only the second person on this thread to actually put foward valid arguments against me instead of flaming me. However I do resent your generalization which lumps me with leetspeakers and halo fanboys.

By "games everyone knows", one would assume you're referring to something highly mainstream, like Halo. It's entirely possible you agree with Yahtzee that Halo's generally shit, but a criticism of more than one line would have cleared that up immensely. While brevity is the soul of wit, being too brief can lean you towards the dreaded mire of leetspeak, which links me into saying that I'm aware you're not a leetspeaker the way littlerudi08043 is. I did, however, correct your spelling in spacing in the quote above. ;-)

Concerning the ad at the beginning:

Oh God! I wanted DDKR to get big, but not...not like this! Oh God, the pony! You killed the pony! We could have had both! Bamalam and ponies could have lived in harmony, but now it'll never be! Oh, God! What have you done?!

Crying over.

Good episode, although I have never heard of the game.

Do you do anything but *****? I swear you were something like the third comment last week saying it was bad.

I don't see why everyone has a panic-attack as soon as he reviews a game that isn't well known by everyone. Do none of Yahtzee's fans have imaginations?

Oh wait, Spyalt you have already answered that for me.
Yes I was. I resent that, I used to be a Yahtzee fan but saw the light and changed.
If you don't like Yahtzee, then why are you even here? Why are you still posting and arguing in this thread?
Just become I am no longer a raving fanboy does not mean I dislike Yahtzee. Don't be so presumptous in future.
Spyalt you are a butthurt, Weeaboo ******. Quit being an internet tough guy, no one takes your opinions seriously so shut the fuck up. now GTFO my yahtzee board!

The little "Voting Time! GO GO GO" clip at the end made me think how much better Zero Punctuation intro\end credits would be with that funky theme instead of the generic metal one.

I know we've been through this before, but if you're going for the generic no-copyright-infringement-here intro maybe you could mix it up once in a while?

i loved the "so in short" word gag he uses. he used to do that a lot, but up until, probably the semi-spoonerism "wad of gore" from april fools day, those blue word screens were generally just really fast descriptions of what he was already saying, and not a word pun.

(by the way, i know there have been acceptions to this {like the university of california crest for "you see" (UC)}, but i couldn't pinpoint a specific review).

maybe i'm just nitpicking, but i always thought that was one of the funniest things about his vids. i haven't lost faith in his reviews (i don't always agree with his opinions on games, but hey, it's one more perspective to consider), but i know which ones i like more than others.

who'd have thought "video game review" could be a category of comedic entertainment in and of itself?

Have you ever considered the possibility that he is "actually reviewing" the games he is playing and not just trying to be funny? The word "review" is in the name of his episodes for a reason. I actually find him to be a better reviewer then many of the big reviewers like IGN or gamespot because he does not call every game made by rockstar the "next big leap" simply because it's made by rockstar. I would take Yahtzee's review over the IGN and gamespot reviews any day of the week (well almost).

Strangely enough the commentary about wasted but imaginative mechanics, totalitarian gameplay, utter contempt for characters, and eye gougingly frustrating children resonates in some respect with every japanese designed game I've played this console generation.

Maybe that's just terrible luck on my part but the thoroughness of the crap leads me to believe that good game design in Japan suffered a terribly excrucating death and from this point on the country be quarentined from the rest of the world lest we suffer another SSBB or Lost Odyssey.

Going by popularity and/or visibility, Yahtzee should review Naruto Shippuden Ultimate Ninja Fanboy Fapping Package 4 next.
Thankyou for being only the second person on this thread to actually put foward valid arguments against me instead of flaming me. However I do resent your generalization which lumps me with leetspeakers and halo fanboys.
to be frank, you kind of brought that on yourself. if there were more detail on yourself in your post than one subjective opinion and a rhetorical question, we might not see you as a well-rounded gamer with a taste in niche genres.

and in case you wanted to know, i'm not a gamer; i'm a musician who enjoys yahtzee's reviews more for his personality and his take on the world (and himself) than the games, so regardless of how big or how requested the game, i can find some kind of humour in his reviews. so your assumption of who watches these videos and why has just been proven, to an extent, false (and i quote: "Its not funny unless its major games that everyone knows."). personally, i think if you take his personal opinion 100% of the time, or just base everything you play solely on his (or anyone's) word without trying it yourself, then you're looking in the wrong place for information. look how many trolls have left angry posts in all caps screaming about how great the game is. everyone's allowed their opinions, and anyone who doesn't understand "personal taste" is missing the point.

plus this is a good forum. it's got some yahoos, and some trolls, and definitely some misinterpreted posts, but it's a well-knit community for an internet message board

"wotawshi woh bakkah guyjin"

ouch, I cringed a little at the pronunciation there, which I am sure was the point, but still ouch. Unhappily takes me back to the Far Cry 2 review.

Maybe accents and other languages (aside from German, which you seem okay with) are better left to their natives.

If I didn't think it to be above Yahtzee's character to do such a thing (Har har), I would hazard a guess that "Spyalt" is a Yahtzee alt sent here to terrorize and humiliate his fans while at the same time trolling for praise to soothe his mild-mannered-alter-(mega)-ego . I can imagine him enjoying that.

Except there is a bit too much anger there I guess to be Yahtzee... oh well. Yahtzee on drugs?

I'm glad there wasn't a great deal of venom hurled at the sightjacking concept. Any time a designer takes a step out of the box like that, it's good for gaming as a whole (even if the execution of the idea ends up being a useless feature).

Also, why is everyone being so retarded? "You has japanese avatar, you have a dumb nick, you like stuff i don't like, so i will insult your comments" Yahtzee's videos do gather plenty of angry sex-less fanboys and what not, but this is going way over the top.

Hello Spyalt!

No I dont really have a good idea on why your posting in these forums, but Im going to take a good guess (seeing as this is my first post ;D).

While your entitled to your opinion on what you thought Yahtzee's review was like (however biased it might be), you are very negligent towards other peoples comments on this board, especially if they challenge you on your unfounded and clearly confusing remarks. Futhermore, it seems you havent quite grasped the concept on these, and have just replied back with no hint of wit and in a childlike matter which is the equivalent of "Im right, you wrong so nah".

The fact you cant even reply to some of the more intellectual remarks on your "oh so, top notch wit", shows you have no real purpose and havent even grasped the language and intellect in order to form a response to them.

Im guessing your going through a tough point in your life at the moment, but you need another outlet apart from taking it out on people in this forum, (or any forum for that matter). I cannot assume to know what your like in real life but from judging from your post you seem to not be a very nice person and possibly lacking in decent proper social skills. Just face it, your wrong, not everyone has the same tastes but one thing is true though, the only people that deserve to be flamed are people that flame others just for having an opinion.

Peace

the review was pretty good, the humour was there though it was not as good as some other reviews he has done but all in all I liked it.

Indeed. And sucky AI makes it worse. Like when the person you're supposed to escort is running ahead, then screaming complaining that someone should've told him about the gigantic monster that almost killed him.

This.
You both have avatars from Japanese videogames.

Silence.
So racism is your argument. Nice one mate.
I think he was suggesting that their criticisms are invalid because they are (presumably) otaku-esques who will fiercely defend anything Japanese-made to the death.

Not really racist... generalization, definitely.

Really? So my opinion is invalid because I chose a picture at random from my hard drive to represent myself on an online forum? What does that say about you being a bit to eager to discredit what the other side has to say?

While I may have quick-fired my original post off without coming up with supporting reasons as to what I was saying or really even what I was aiming at (for this, I apologize) I will clarify this now.

I thought the review in and of itself was godawful, mostly because it didn't seem like the Yahtzee I come here every Wednesday to in order to laugh at another one of his videos. The game overall seemed rather stupid, I'm not a huge fan of the whole 'exactly ONE solution to problem x', so I would probably not have enjoyed this game myself. But seeing as how I lack a PS3, I guess that problem is null anyway.

Otaku though, really? I would shoot myself before becoming anything remotely Otakuish.

Look at all the posts I have replied to on this thread. I have respondly poorly to those who have flamed me, and to those who have put foward valid argument I have thanked them for doing so and respected there opinions. So even though it makes me sound childish I am right and you all wrong.

Actually his argument is that you're biased towards Japanese games. I don't see any mention of racism
Care to prove that I'm biased towards them? No thought not, try harder next time.
Your av is from a Japanese game. Given that neither I nor he know you personally, all we have to go on is how you represent yourself on The Escapist. And you have chosen to represent yourself with something Japanese. Hence, logically, you are fond of them and thus have some bias. QED
I have never actually played a mega man game but I will know change my avatar just to make you happy.
Hello Spyalt!

No I dont really have a good idea on why your posting in these forums, but Im going to take a good guess (seeing as this is my first post ;D).

While your entitled to your opinion on what you thought Yahtzee's review was like (however biased it might be), you are very negligent towards other peoples comments on this board, especially if they challenge you on your unfounded and clearly confusing remarks. Futhermore, it seems you havent quite grasped the concept on these, and have just replied back with no hint of wit and in a childlike matter which is the equivalent of "Im right, you wrong so nah".

The fact you cant even reply to some of the more intellectual remarks on your "oh so, top notch wit", shows you have no real purpose and havent even grasped the language and intellect in order to form a response to them.

Im guessing your going through a tough point in your life at the moment, but you need another outlet apart from taking it out on people in this forum, (or any forum for that matter). I cannot assume to know what your like in real life but from judging from your post you seem to not be a very nice person and possibly lacking in decent proper social skills. Just face it, your wrong, not everyone has the same tastes but one thing is true though, the only people that deserve to be flamed are people that flame others just for having an opinion.

Peace
you, young sir, have expertly summarized my own opinion.

EDIT- I also hope you die in a fire

I would like to mention one particular game with a second person feature with which everyone here should be familiar: Psychonaughts. The Clairvoyance ability allowed you to see through the eyes of your target, and it was nearly a requirement during one boss-fight to use it while fighting.

Hm. While oridnarily I try to avoid these pointless flamewars, I think this needs to be mentioned. Ironically, it was you who asked the question 'what has happened to the Escapist' earlier.

Your own words are exactly what has 'happened.' The fact that you thanked people for not outright flaming you for your opinions does not make it any better when you proceed to summarily dismiss their counterarguments without any support for your own position. So, you're polite. You're still not actually talking.

And make no mistake: what you are doing is standing in a room and shouting your opinion at the top of your lungs. That is not 'discourse'. That is not 'debate'. That is not 'discussion'. And that-- exactly that-- is what has been wrong with the Escapist lately.

You are technically no better than littlerudi, you just are a bit (well, OK, a lot) less obnoxious in how you state your opinion. You want to stop the culture in these forums from souring? Discuss things. Or failing that, use the phrase "we'll have to agree to disagree", but don't mindlessly keep repeating your opinion just because you feel some sort of pathological desire to assert your authority about a subjective (for God's sake) topic. It makes you look immature, and again to use your own words- gives me the right to ignore anything that comes out of your mouth ever again.

And that would be a shame, because you seem to have a brain, and are active, and generally those are the types of people I like to see posting in these forums.

Incidentally, I was playing this game at the same time I was watching this. (Just went on the pc to read up on gamefaqs.)

I cant say I disagree with the gist of Yahtzee's points. The sight jack thing is nifty, but it makes your screen all choppy as a "telepathic migraine" effect. I hate moving around while doing it so I only use it to pinpoint enemies when im in a safe place.

I think the enemies couldve had a honorable mention for creeping me the f*ck out! Weve all seen the spider walk thing in the exorcist but damn, it gets to me everytime. I remember sight jacking one and wondering why their vision was upside down...

I like the story, but its kind of hard to understand. In fact, I needed a plot analysis from gamefaqs to really understand whats going on. If I didnt look it up i'd call it a mish mash of flashbacks with different outcomes everytime. Very confusing. Hanuda probably isnt a very big place since every character in the cast visit every location at least once, causing you to explore the same levels many times.

I was WONDERING when you were going to review this! Right on!

In the first Siren game my friend was playing and got stuck on the level with the seventy-year-old man with the shotgun, not because we kept dying, but because WE HAD NO IDEA WHAT THE HELL THE GAME WANTED US TO DO. Siren was good in THEORY, but it's execution was like watching a one-legged man trying to run a three-legged race. Awkward, and ultimately, disappointing. I ended up handing the game over to a friend so I could make some room on my memory card for Silent Hill 3 (which of course then reminded me how much I fucking HATE SILENT HILL CONTROLS. Up = Forward is FAIL).

I was somewhat excited for the new Siren, considering none of the other sequels have even seen the light of DAY in Canada/the U.S., and especially since the voice acting in the first one was OMG BRITISH and therefore fifty times less annoying and pathetic than it would've been with American voice actors, but because I was hoping they'd improved.

Apparently, not.

Thank you Yahtzee, for reviewing a game that probably SHOULD get more attention, even if it does fall flat on its face most of the time.

Quite average, but these "complete surprise" reviews now and then are a nice break from mainstream.

Were all the characters really that bad?
In the original Forbidden Siren, the second level requires you, a cop, to have some schoolgirl assitant of yours follow you around like a retarded puppy. She never stops whining, and more often than not would jump in front of me when I went to shoot a Shibito (Japanese zombies). I actually wasted a level to shoot her so I could relieve my hate-induced stress. -_-; SERIOUSLY. BAD. CHARACTER DESIGN.

On the bright side, it was much easier listening to British voices than American ones. They actually suited the Japanese characters better - the enunciation and general flow of the language was more similar from British-English to Japanese than American-English to Japanese.

How is it racist? It's the common denominator.
That does not make it not racist. Instead of challenging what was said or giving your reasons why you choose to disagree you instead made a pathetic and snide comment. It doesn't impress anyone.
How long have you been on the internet?

This is how it works: Review about game genre is negative, genre fan has a sad, other genre fan quotes cause he has a sad too.

That's it. Don't try to pin "racism" on it to try to get people suspended or something.

"OMIGAWD! HE SAID IT WAS A GAME FROM JAPAN! HE MUST BE RACIST!"
Just reread my prior post because it still beats you argument.

Good review. Too bad such a promising game turned out to be bad. I played the first Siren game, it had me legitimately frightened (as long as there wasn't anyone speaking. God, the voice acting was terrible...).

Loved the giant eyeball at the computer gag. Didn't even know Chzo had a computer.

*Sigh* When will he learn? Its not funny unless its major games that everyone knows.
Have you ever considered the possibility that he is "actually reviewing" the games he is playing and not just trying to be funny? The word "review" is in the name of his episodes for a reason. I actually find him to be a better reviewer then many of the big reviewers like IGN or gamespot because he does not call every game made by rockstar the "next big leap" simply because it's made by rockstar. I would take Yahtzee's review over the IGN and gamespot reviews any day of the week (well almost).
This post and your name give me the right to take everything you say as ignorant babble and I shall treat it as such.
And why is that?
As I said your name and the fact that you considered taking Yahtzee's review over one of IGN's or gamespot's.
So what are you saying? That liking his reviews more makes me stupid? Why? Why can't i like his reviews more then the ones at IGN and gamespot if a desire to do so?

I also mean what i said in my other reply, that the big magazines give most high-profile games way too high scores. GTA 4 and Crysis for example were overrated to death. If you don't agree then there is nothing wrong at that, everybody can have there own opinions. But i would like you stop throwing insults at me (or anybody else for that matter) simply for not agreeing or sharing your view on things.

I've been wondering whether this game was something I should be interested in. Thank you for confirming my suspicion that is it not.

Also, anencephalic infants wouldn't necessarily be my preference if they were still alive. That'd be really creepy... actually headless babies might make a great premise for a horror game. God idea.

I don't think he disputed the fact that it was a ps3 exclusive, and I'm pretty sure he didn't dispute the fact that it came out in 2008.

Just messing with you, by the way. Don't get upset because I'm amused by a typo.

Definately not his best, but it's difficult when you only have so much material to work with.

I've never really considered Yahtzee to be the one to take overly seriously.
He's an entertainer.
Yes, it's true that his reviews to deserve some merit, but they're not meant to be groundbreaking for the review content.
It's just supposed to make you chuckle.
Anyone who takes them to heart needs to fuck off.

Yeah, his personality of being a walking/talking dick, who's in dire need of getting a sock shoved down his throat. Yahtzee is going down the tubes as fast as the economy gets buttfucked, all his jokes are getting bland and stupid (I could find more entertaiment by looking at roadkill,) if there are people who still see him as a'comedy genius' and 'reviwer' then they deserve to be shot in the face. Also there are some good Japanese games out there, sure they aren't perfect, but they're atleast fun.

I belive the problem is how he acts/presents his reviews, wich make people take it seriously. Also on how he always claims that he's a pro reviewer, plus I woulden't even consider him as an entertainer since he bassicly fails at that as well.

Less funny than other ZP videos? Sure. But i enjoy ZP a lot more when he honestly reviews something rather than just a relentless bash-a-thon of the game/genre/console which he's been prone to doing recently.

What helps make his style is the profound sense of arrogance that he brings to it.

Obviously it won't be everyone's cup of tea.
No one entertainer is going to please the masses.
But that doesn't mean that he's any less of one for it.

Just read through his threads and see all the people who have enjoyed his videos.
Dispensing bile as a response to bile is only adding to the mess.

I don't know why but I get the feeling yahtzee needs to take a break, forget about games and come back in a month or so fully rejuvenated and as sarcastic as possible!

yeash a ton of people are getting susupended, just lighten up and do your research on the game he reviewed before you watch it and you'll get the jokes.

I loved his revew on hawxs last week it just needed abit more out of the blue, a shot in the ass humor, like the "NOT A RACIST" photo from the 50 cent videogame he review from a few weeks ago.

Also I figured seeing as he's trying new things he could try Pokemon Platnium (Even if it is yet to be PAL released...bloody Americans...)
I'd put a vote for that.It would be fun to see Yahtzee obliterate my childhood favorite.

That was an f'd up review Yahtzee.

... and I freakin' loved it. Laughed my ass off at a few points.
Your avatar leaping in with the coathanger at the end is priceless.
Wrong, but priceless.

Why do so many people feel the need to comment that they haven't heard of the game? It was released on psn first but I'm fairy sure it was later released at a budget price, it's not that obscure.

I quite liked the game, but most of yahtzee's criticisms are valid, but it wasn't his funniest.

Oh wow for once i agree with yahtzee.

Its a nice that for once he actually reviews a bad game instead of a good game that he sucks at playing.

Awesome review, Yahtzee, and pretty spot on.

And as I said in an earlier comment about a ZP that I didn't care for, this had the unpredictable humor that I love to see in these reviews. The leprosy joke: I had to stop for a second and rewind just to confirm that yes, Yahtzee did in fact say what I think he just said. And the abortion joke.

Gratzi, you have just made my day a tiny bit better. Only a tiny bit, because it was pretty awesome to start with.

I have to agree, the ONLY good survival-horror game I ever played was the Penumbra series, after that scary video games don't even affect me anymore.

I love that at around 4:15 he almost starts to laugh when he says that the girl frees herself, made me chuckle.

I tested this at Sony last year, hated it.

It's REALLY annoying when you're required to successfully protect a character that the game will later kill off anyway. A similar writing offense is for the game to follow a boss fight you just won with a cutscene of the boss kicking your ass, especially when losing said boss fight results in a game over. It's like playing D&D with an atrocious hack for a DM.

He doesn't MAKE people do anything - there will always be those who adopt the opinions of others in lieu of forming their own, and Mr. Croshaw has certainly made his opinions known in a very quotable way.

I don't agree with all of his reviews, either, but at least I have the good sense not to to say that Yahtzee's fans should be "shot in the face".

I have never read the comments on a ZP video before. And now I understand why I instinctively shyed away from it.

Jesus h christ, fanboys and anti-fanboys scare the crap out of me.

Also, since my sister's laptop has decided that it hates me and all I stand for I have to wait until I get home to watch this video. And yes, it's a game I've never heard of, because I don't have a PS3, and neither do any of my friends. I'll still watch it and enjoy it. I don't think there's anything wrong with picking a game that isn't as well known as others. As a reviewer, isn't that his perogative?

I think it is just hilarious that people are mad when he reviews something and they don't like it. A review is an oppinion! If you disagree with Yahtzee time and again that is okay!

This.
You both have avatars from Japanese videogames.

Silence.
That has nothing to do with anything, sir.
So? :3

Pokemon is from Japan too, btw...
Yet again you bring up the avatar thing, what is that how you see how valid an argument is or something?

To go completely back onto topic. I played this game and I thought the dumbest part was the ending and the boss fight. Its like fighting a big spider while on LSD, not to mention the subtlety gets completely trashed in the 10th or so chapter. I mean once he started swinging a katana around I know it had departed horror completely. Though still a good game and a great review.

again not really a review...funny (leper joke cracked me up)...but a rant at best...he spoiled part of the plot (also funny)for jebus sake...told us there was a path in the woods we need to find and then you get killed (scary for some but still another spoiler)...i could go on...i love the series...i think yahtzee is brilliant...but these are not reviews...did he even say if he liked it as much a silent hill 4 or whatever

Agreed, I just don't find alot of humor in this (a chuckel one or two maybe.) Some people do yes, but it's annoying when they go on this protection of yahtzee calling him some sort of humor God and reviewer, wich he ain't and never was/will be. Plus I kinda have a feeling that he hasn't even played the original Siren on the PS2, wich by far was HORRENDESLY bad, and practically impossible to pass without a walktrough. Just because he mentioned it, doesn't mean he played it. The only thing I'd agree with him, was the voice acting, wich was badly translated from the Japanese. The othere things he said sucked can be countered by bringing the Siren for the PS2.

Yet another survival-horror game.

It's not that Yahtzee is trying to play all the FPSurvorror he can, it's that IT'S THE ONLY BLOODY THING GAME COMPANIES WILL PUMP OUT FOR A QUICK BUCK NOWADAYS.

That and Madden.

On another note... just who is that dude who's headshot keeps appearing in all his reviews lately? Is that someone in particular?

In my honest opinion, no game has made horror/psychological thriller GOOD. I might even go as far as to say that no film has made psychological horror/thrillers good ever, either.

If there is something i dislike more than coming home to find a hobo rubbing his balls all over my bed, it's the japanese influence on a game. Yes, their stock characters, clichees and TERRIBLE TERRIBLE dialog writing/voice acting is what made me have to FORCE myself through Silent Hill 2, damn well trying to enjoy the story and get immersed, but i failed immensively. Maybe if i had played it when i came out, i would actually have enjoyed it, but that's probably because i was 10 at the time.

You all just wait until i can cough up the dough to keep a dev team afloat, and release an immersive psychological horror game that will redefine the genre and piss on your dead cat.

yes, this is what we should assume is going to happen. that, or nobody will buy it because people generally don't support the good games (a lá grim fandango).

bye.

Didn't like this one. A year old game I had never heard of, and it was apparently a meritless piece of trash. Since this is where I come for reviews I'd rather see newer stuff so I can get an idea of what to avoid.

Anyone think Yahtzee reads what we write?
I think his comment about fans from the T-shirt ad says it all, and I actually agree with him, not to mention that he's got his own forum that he moderates.

The ZP threads are generally a front for concentrated stupid in these forums.

On-topic, I enjoyed this review. Not his best, but far from his worst.

Name one game that has done horror right?

Seeing as how you don't think Grim Fandango was one of the best games ever, i'm half expecting you to bring up some shitty asshat game like Dead Space, so congratulations for proving to me that some people actually shouldn't be allowed to partake in popular votes.

Cheers!

p.s. I think even you can agree that Grim Fandango was several steps above for example NHL 1999 in the great order of things, but people will rather stick with safe, familiar immensively product placed and sold out games, than to try something that's a little off. I think that's sad, that's all.

Calling Grim Fandango a 'ze best game ever' has as much solid ground as calling Uwe Boll a movie genius, because there's no such thing as a perfect game, get it trough your heads. Grim Fandago suffered from two annoyings things; one being the fucking controls, two that this game was mostly based on grabbing every object you have and using it in hopes it'll work. I'm sorry, but that doesn' make the game great, it makes it irrataiting and just based on dumb luck, because you'll never think of using any of the objects you have, because it's logically stupid. Like drinking gold made liquir to get a metal detector, or say using balloons filled with strange liquid to destroy a machien. You woulden't think of this, because again, it's illogical. If I want a real puzzle based game I'll play Siberia, but Grim Fandango just makes you relay on dumb luck, that's not a puzzle game, that's just embarrasing.

Second I could bring alot of games, but I'll choose games like Penumbra wich tried to focus more on horror rather than combat. You had to hide from the monsters, rather than killing 'em, all the stuff you used had a point/reason of doing it, the game didn't even relay on jump scares like say Dead Space, but it had abit of this mental fuckery later on, wich actually was really good. But what made it really fun to play is that, you know your up against some weird creatures, or something like that.
