I try not to be too liberal with the five stars, but man that sequence at the end earned it.
I hope Intro Sequence Theatre becomes a regular feature.
I was going to give the review four stars, but Pufferfish earns it five.

I did not see the second part of this video coming, and it hit me like a comedy freight train loaded to capacity with comedy.
Intro Sequence Theater just made my shitty morning worth it.
First thing I watched this morning, and boy was it gold.

Was I the only one not particularly impressed with Intro Sequence Theatre? Still, pufferfish.
I hope we haven't five starred him into a monster.
A nerdy, nerdy monster.
"Retard McSpackyPants" alone would fetch this an easy 5.
20 minutes. Out front. Puffer fish.

Dude, stop being a cheapass and buy yourself a self-washing gimp.

well done. well well fucking done. i was also enamored of "retard mcspackypants"
I continue to be baffled as to why anyone would play The Witcher, but I could never put my bewilderment in words as well as Yahtzee.
Yeah, the biggest complaint I have is having to run long distances coupled with ridiculous load times (20-30 seconds just to enter AND exit a one room hut).
But fuck fuck fuckity FUCK the swamp level and running by hordes of swamp monsters only to have FUCKING GODDAMN FUCK killer plant pop up and instantly kill you from a mile away with flying poisonous thorns.
I just finished the game, and its not bad...I have a "newer" PC, not a godhead gamer rig, and load times arent too bad with a dual core PC and 2 Gigs RAM. That swamp level increased my swearing capacity to new grandiose heights as well.
Shame. Failure. Ignominy. Swindon.
As usual, the video lasted twice as long for me because I kept backtracking to see what I'd just missed.
And before I forget, Intro Sequence Theater is the most awesome thing since awesome was invented.
This just keeps getting better...
5 for bewilderment upon finding out he was playing a mumorpurger
Five for the review, four for intro theater but I see a lot of potential there.
Nice to see him switch it up a bit.
I didn't think it was as funny as his other ones, but I do sort of love the witcher. Has anyone else tried the witcher? Other complaints aside, did playing it seem too complicated like Yahtzee suggests?
It definitely suffers from too many menus, but as far as rpgs go, I've seen far worse. I haven't run into an interface issue yet that led me to consult a manual or online website, which puts it above fallout 2 and bioshock.
The real issue is downtime. Everything takes just a little bit longer to load than it should, from opening inventories to loading areas. When you combine this with some poorly paced quests that involve traveling long distances it starts to wear on you a bit.
For me it was well worth fifty dollars, but I have friends that I wouldn't dream of recommending it to.
the witcher, in my opinion, is the best rpg i've played since vampire: bloodlines. it also shares alot of the problems vampire had, although the witcher didn't drop the ball as badly as troika did.
yeah, it's complicated, and honestly, i rarely bothered with the alchemy and shit, but it was an interesting narrative in a great setting with decent gameplay. that's all i really want in any game. hell, that's what made fallout good. (and no, i'm not one of "those" types)
that said, painkiller was the better game of the two presented here. god, i think i'll load it up right now.
Fallout 2 is one of my top ten favorite single player games, but the interface has serious issues. I spent several hours trying to figure out how to get into the abandoned base before I realized that you had to hold the button down over the cart for several seconds, drag it over to the satchel icon, then select an explosive and set the detonator timer.
The fact that I love something doesn't prevent me from acknowledging that it has flaws. This is what separates me from the rest of the internet.
baldr, in case you arn't in the know, fallout 1 and 2 has tax exempt status. no subject on the internet will gather a larger crowd of angry folks. rationality will not be a trait they have. fallout certainly had flaws, but i've learned to shut up about them in order to avoid piranha attacks. for examples, go look at any page of the NMA forums.
Fallout had no flaws and if you repeat that filthy lie I will cut you. And I'm perfectly rational, dammit.
Intro theater is great, overall he's funny, but that is a really terrible and short sighted review of a pretty great game.
...which may be why Yahtzee specified twice that it wasn't a review but merely 'First Impressions'

Wash the gimp.
I, too, have wondered why all dwarves are Scottish.
While, ordinarily, I interpret this guy's work as [accent style="funny"]This game is shite! Here's some words Yanks don't understand![/accent], I have to admit he's spot on this time. Witcher is a fantasy game made by and for 14 year-old boys with porn addictions. Plus, I'm going to be telling people I have to wash the gimp for days now.
"Kill X amount of creatures and come back to this spot" is mumorpurger in my book.
Not to be a humorless fag, but The Witcher is about as much an MMORPG as Knights of the Old Republic, which it pretty much emulates except with longer load times, boobs, and the nagging feeling that one-third of the whole thing was lost in translation that seems to come standard issue with Eastern European games. This all still makes it one of the better RPGs to come out in a while.
Now, to be a humorless fag, Intro Theater wasn't anything great. One man MST3k (meets Monty Python) shows usually aren't.
Plus I tried submitting the Drayd "seduction" scene, but I guess Chet nixed it for having rendered boobies =(
He gets better and better.
