piñatas, tears, and ashes...

I never thought I'd give a bad rating to a ZP review, but when it became apparent that the review was not Yahtzee garotting Suda 51 and then burning him in a pyre made of his own games, I found I could not abide.
This game was the worst thing I have played in years, and I simply cannot understand those who say otherwise, and many of them are on PoE.
Yahtzee has liked more games than he's disliked. His whole schtick is an illusion.
I like the "it's not a bad game; it's just mediocre" line he's broken out on at least two occasions now, probably more. A mediocre game _is_ a bad game.
uh, I'm pretty sure that's untrue, I'm sure he dislikes the vast majority of video games out there (reasonable, considering how much shit is out there).
i think he just tends to review the games that are generally considered to be rated over 8.0, probably because he doesn't want to be pinned down as another masochistic nerdball internet game reviewer who only analyzes games that are obviously shit, just so he can use the words "fucking terrible" alot.
it's really easy to tear apart bad games, which is why I can relate to how irritated he seems to get when people are like "DUDE STOP LIKING GAMES REVIEW SOLDIER OF FORTUNE PAYBACK"
Considering the definition of mediocre is "neither good or bad", I fail to see how that statement is valid. Are you one of those people who holds gaming to outrageous standards and thinks every new game should be perfectly constructed and completely groundbreaking?
I haven't played the game yet, but I felt this ZP was lacking.
His whole schtick has never been to hate games. It's been to review them while talking really fast along with silly pictures. It's great when he hates a game, but it also would get old fast if that's ALL he did.
He seems to make a big point of telling everyone that he always hates games all the time in a number of his reviews, so I'm willing to call it his schtick.
And you're taking the definition of mediocre way too literally, which I wasn't intending. Dead to Rights is, in my mind, the definition of a mediocre game. It's also really boring.

I have not ever played this game nor do I ever intend too. My stars are soley for the entertainment value of Zero Punctuation which I think has been steadily waning since Intro Movie Theatre. I threw in an extra star for "Silly Dragonballz hair" though.

Oh man, another well-written, funny actual game review. Clearly this indicates the next ZP will be four minutes of gay/dick/retard jokes again.
Completely disagree with the point around 3:00, but Yahtzee gets a pass for missing the point ADORABLY.

It made me laugh after a crummy day at work.
That's all I can ask for.

I have no idea what Brandston Pickle is, but if it's the Suda51 of condiments I'm definitely trying it.

I was looking forward to his take on this game for a while now
Glad to see Yahtzee didn't let me down and that now I may just well have to splurge for a Wii so I can play NMH.

Charlie Brooker and Yahtzee need to have a show where they sit around ranting.

5 for Earthbound.

Weird. At 3:29 the box reads "No More Hereos".
