This week Zero Punctuation explores the USS Kill Beast Buffet and reviews Dead Space.
for me he's getting like bukaku, used to be funny but now its boring.
I find him very funny, but you cant take him serious. He often takes small issues and make them a hundred times worse than they are.
I find his reviews to be funny, sharp, and refined as hell. He has the sharpest wit of ANYONE in the gaming industry, and he dispatches any game--no matter how high profile--with an equally foul mouth. This must disturb the naive, but I love what this guy does, and I am never disappointed by what I hear from him.
i own dead space but can't get around to playing it yet with fable 2 and fallout 3 also in my possession and I bet it won't get much easier to find time once gears 2 drops.
and yet Gordon Freeman is also a mute, just like Isaac.. hmmm
He was funny when he reviewed what he wanted to, when he wanted to. He feels like now he sold out, and just does it for a paycheck. The moment they dropped the hand picked intro songs that fit with the game with some schlock rock guitar intro, I knew this series was becoming quickly corporatized and homogenized. Still, good for a chuckle.
Not much you can do about the intro issue. Eventually someone would've gotten on his case for unauthorized use of the songs.
my personal opinion about Dead Space? the game's too boring... but the boss battles are kinda cool and the graphics are great!
I loved Dead Space. Definitely one of my fav games for this year, but Yahtzee is always good for a cheap chuckle.
that the game is over-praised for being the scariest game when in actuality it just got *some* well placed boo-moments, and not really that frightening overall. Secondly, he's correct when he says that Issac completely lacks characterization. But other than that, the game is very entertaining and fun, I love the dismemberment system.
Ugh. It's like the MicroMachines guy from the '80's except with an obnoxious accent to boot. I don't see anything 'witty' so much as a contest of "how many random similes can I shoot off in a minute that may or may not apply to anything in the game." And yeah like someone said, Gordon Freeman never talked either. Hopefully speedy gonzales here follows suit.
Just watched it and that wasn't remotely funny at all. It's more like an EMO rant than anything else and most of all, I got little to no substantive information about the game. Well, that's an issues with almost all editorial reviewing this gen anyways. Seems like the demographic for this guy's reviews is the GTA4 online fanatics - immature teenagers that chuckle uncontrollably every time their Sports education teacher says "Pass your ball to her" in gym class.
