This week, Yahtzee reaches out to touch Halo: Reach.
Alright, Oni sequel.... oh, he was kidding.
I think that joke at the very end of the credits was a case of Yahtzee not even trying to be funny there. 90% of GameTrailers' Halo hating trolls have made similar jokes.
Other than that, he pretty much summed up my opinions on Halo in general there. I never understood what the big deal about its multiplayer was.
This week, Yahtzee sees the Dead Rising [strike]too[/strike].
That was the funniest review in a while. I'd love to post quotes but this is a family friendly forum for all intents and purposes. Good stuff. Keep 'em comin', mate.
Looks like Yahtzee finally got around to shattering Spiderman: Shattered Dimension.
Hilarious! I loved the game and all, but most of his complaints are pretty valid.
What is Yahtzee's problem with Nolan North? He fits the role of Deadpool perfectly, well aside from Ryan Reynolds but that's another story.
Hey, a gargoyle from Blood: neat.
Yahtzee finds a Portal reference in the new Castlevania.
The reason I really like Yahtzee is because, he points out what seems like VERY obvious flaws in games, that for some reason developers keep making. I found this review funny, and yet I'm left to wonder...why do developers make these kind of odd ball choices? I don't know, maybe man was not ever meant to know such answers.
This week, Yahtzee finds himself in the employ of a Tripticaca and thus goes on a quest as an Enslaved...
...Oddysey to the West.
I still enjoyed the game, even with the linearity, connect-the-dot platforming and all.
If it was going to be a movie game at least they made you want to keep going to see what happens next without too much distraction getting in the way. It's when movie games try to stall things with horrible platforming, horrible grinding, or collectathons that I either give up on or resent them, but this game seems to know what it is and makes it a pretty decent rental with some replayability.
It really does need some sequel(s) which is why I paid full price and will buy the DLC, just because I like the characters (not so much Pigsy, but whatever.)
This week, Yahtzee endures a Fallout of the New Vegas variety.
Its funny, because it doesn't really give you an idea of the game, and yet he went over how it plays. What an odd review.
We need more games to crash on Yahtzee. I find it rather amusing to see that happen to him.
This week, Yahtzee unleashes his rage on Star Wars: The Force Unleashed II.
Yahtzee finds very little black in Call of Duty: Black Ops.
He brings up some good points, like why isn't the game more stealth? How can it be a deniable ops when everything is one big fire fight. Why isn't there a World War 3, so we can have new material to make games about? And so on and so forth.
Yahtzee phones it in today.
Much to everyone's surprise, he seems to actually like iPhone games. I guess it makes sense, the games are more about gameplay and trying new things. And Yahtzee does hate the same ol' same ol' that the industry has become.
I actually bought Cut the Rope last week, so I could entertain my niece for Thanksgiving. After trying out the free demo game, I was impressed enough to buy the whole game for a whopping dollar. Yahtzee says he was able to beat the whole game with 3 stars on every level within an hour, and I say that's BS, because a lot of those games are crazy hard, but he was probably exaggerating, like he likes to do.
I actually think the iOS is a great platform for games. iPhone 4, iPad, and the new iPod Touch all have some really advance tech inside, which can translate well in to gameplay. Gyroscopes, accelerometers, mics, multi touch screens, etc. It can do everything a DS can do plus a lot more.
There is also a ton of money to be made on the App store. When I was playing Cut the Rope, I looked in Game Center (Apple's "Xbox Live") and it says there are over 1.5 million people on the leader boards. At a $1 a pop that's $1 million for the developer and $500,000 for Apple. That's pretty nuts. And there might be even more people that don't use Game Center, so the number is probably higher.
Excuse me, I'm going to back into the closet and shout more obscenities about how Yahtzee is a complete hack.
Other than that, does anyone find the irony in Yahtzee liking Fruit Ninja when he made a jab about Raiden sword slashing watermelons in the MGS Rising trailer in his E3 '10 trailer? I know those are two different things but I just find it ironic that out of two games to feature a ninja slicing up fruit, he likes the one centered around it on the iPhone.
This week, Yahtzee engages with his fellow man in a rather fatal fashion in Assassin's Creed: Brotherhood.
