This week, Zero Punctuation reviews British space Nazis and Killzone 3.
I thought Guerrilla Games was European.
It's Dutch. Like I am.
this guy is also Dutch: http://www.comicbookmovie.c...
Lunatic What does that have to do with anything? @above I thought he was Austrian? I know he is "Dutch" lol. I think I needed a "/s".
Yeah, they're dutch. But you have to have american-esque elements in game to appeal more in US, Europe doesn't give a damn so we have it like that. Is it me or this is weaker review than others? I love Zero Punctation but this was more bland and hardly as clever and accurate as previous. Before anyone calls me butthurt Killzone fanboy: I found Bulletstorm more enjoyable. Also he didn't mention my biggest gripe with this game. Ridiculously moronic storyline. @Perjoss: Yeah, I know, but he's often more spot-on than here. Bulletstorm review is way better than this one and it's only week older.
I'll just his Bulletstorm review right here http://n4g.com/news/717375/...
@ hay zero punctuation is very funny the first few times you watch him, after that you start to notice a pattern, his problem is he only seems to do 1 flavour of humour, almost as if he writes a normal review and then passes it through a zero punctuation filter or template, the reviews are all very similar.
this guy talks too much and too fast nice review tho
@zootang Did you watch the video? He seemed to think Killzone 3 was made by Americans.
If Ben only played with the Move for 10 minutes, he didn't take enough time to get used to it and figure out the perfect combo of control options. I always enjoy his reviews of games I loved the most. Like GOW3 and this.
I think the point is though if that you're not enjoying a control option within 10 minutes, then you probably won't at all. I'm not talking about skill level, learning how to use it effectively etc, as obviously that all comes with time. There's a difference between learning how to use something and ENJOYING how to use something, and in the gaming world, learning how to use a control option shouldn't be a chore. Also, will +bub anyone who can tell me how my earlier comment was trolling lol.
No review on the multiplayer? Anyways, theres quite a few things I've found wrong in the video, I won't explain them all, but the most obvious one was when he said that PS3 USERS SHOULD SHOOT WITH R2! Comon now, every PS3 game in existance (that I know of) uses r1 and L1 and aim and shoot. Kinda makes me think he loves xbox. /sigh Hes still funny though.
R2 is isn't even a trigger on the ps3 controller. Its a pedal. Triggers are concave. PS1 had R1 to shoot, PS2 had R1 to shoot, and PS3 has R1 to shoot. Unless the PS4 controller has a trigger button then that will be the shooting button. R1 button is the shooting button for playstation 3 shooters. PERIOD. And whats the point of even mentioned that R2 pedal should be for shooting when you can customize your controls to your liking. Its called flipping in kz3 control options menu. Flip R2 R1 Flip L2 L1 etc etc
Yahtzee thinks that games should be able to stand up on their single player component alone, so he never reviews multiplayer.
So did he review Halo 3?
Yes and he slated Halo 3 for that very reason. He said Reach stands up on its single player though.
It's just what he reviews a fair bit of his games on. Bioshock on PS3 used L2/R2 to fire and whatnot and I hated it tbh. L1/R1 for life!
he nio longer reviews as review his reviews are entertainment thats what hes paid for its expected his review will be like that as for his speech... its called zero punctuation for a reason
Red Dead Redemption doesn't (which makde me change weapon for the first 15 minutes), Bioshock 2 doesn't. They're both badly ported from X360. I never understood why on Earth I'd have to shoot with my middle, not index finger. Index is faster, more precise. People who invented guns got it right hundreds of years ago.
The patch for RDR rectified that. You can now shoot with L1/R1 combo.
Believe it or not my middle finger is a better trigger finger than my index, I always use it for games/paintball/airsoft etc :)
The middle finger has a slower response time than the index finger. But, I will agree that it feels awkward at first.
well, it's quite obvious you don't know him at all. He barely ever reviews Multiplayer and believes a game should be able to stand on it's single player alone. He's not a fanboy at all. He likes...Half life 2. SotC, res 4( I think) and a few more I don't remember...Amnesia the dark decent is another I think. Also Bulletstorms devs first game. Don't think he likes Bulletstorm though. Oh I agree aswell, L2 R2 suck imo. Shoulda copied the 360 or stuck with the Ps2 one. Still I find it odd how Guerilla games have somehow become a mascot for Sony these days. They've only made 1 great game imo. Which was Killzone 2. the other 9 vary between good and mediocre. Insomniac and Naughty Dog have a great track record with almost nothing but great games.
I hate shooting with R2.
yeah, im never going to understand that one, R1 is by far the most natural position for your index finger to rest on. Its right there, with no movement needed. Its like what the x button is to the thumb, the R1 button is the index finger. When they use R2, its infuriating, and is stupid. The R2 and L2 buttons have always been secondary, and require either an extending motion of your index finger, or you can use your middle finger to use those buttons, but they should definitely not be used for primary functions. Another reason why madden pissed me off, was using the L2 and R2 as primary function buttons, god dammit. And no, dont tell me triggers help, because its still a strained motion with your fingers, unlike using r1 being more natural.
Pure hate for the game for the sake of it . so it doesn't like move because he is too lazy to calibrate it ? couldn't he look for the boutons , and how they are used in the freaking tutorial ? Also shooting with R1 is better .
there's always one isn't there... mate, you're not supposed to take his reviews seriously, 99% of the time he speaks negatively about pretty much everything, its funny, i guess...
Someone's a bit sensitive about their British heritage I see...
I got a bit pissey over the one he did for Halo3 and wrongfully called his type of take as not all at funny, but now i'm less daft with the over protective thing, it's easy to see he's definitely good at what he does .I can understand why some might take offense to this but killzone is an easy target anyway
I really can't get into this guy's stuff. It feels like he's trying to be one of these commentators that uses his humour to articulate the common complaints of his audience (i.e. Charlie Brooker) but it's so obvious he's just looking for things to complain about. To do this kind of thing you really need to be complaining about things that you genuinely find annoying, even if you overplay just how annoying you find them for the sake of comedy. When you're just picking things to complain about that neither you nor your audience really are bothered by you just come off as a hack. Disclaimer - While I'm a PS3 owner I don't own and probably will never own Killzone 3. It's just not my kind of game and I neither know nor care if it's any good.
I liked the game. Didn't play the multiplayer because I dont have enough time for it, but the campign took me 3:45 hours to beat.
I freaking love Yahtzee. His "reviews" are hilarious. They're not suppose to be taken seriously and that's why I enjoy them so much.
Yes they are, and he has specified that himself several times. It's just that you don't have to be as sceptical as he is.
I love the way he's stuck up with details. It's so damn true. Best reviewer I know about, but I do think KZ3 is an excellent game.
1) Guerilla Games is a Dutch company, not an American company. Sony isn't an American company either. 2) I don't know of a single PS3 other than Bioshock that uses R2 for shooting. Every single other game I've ever played has used R1.
Many many people, even in the industry are completely ignorant of the fact that the standard for shooters on the PS3 is R1/L1 for aim/shoot, even in the company I worked for. Yahtzee is just another ignorant hater that jumps on the bandwagon of ignorant gamers/journalists. He got many many things wrong in this review. It's doubly embarrassing for him because he prides himself on being so intelligent and honest yet he can't get simple facts right.
First of all I am surprised he let KZ3 off so easy. I was sure he was going to tear it to shreds like he did Fable 3 and BS. However he didn't seem to attack it as much as he usually does. Also pardom my ignorance but are you guys saying that you shoot with R2 in KZ3? Because that is wrong. You shoot with R1 like other shooters. If not then pardon me and ignore this sentence.
us guys? I believe that yahtzee was saying that kz3 should have R2 as the trigger button, and everyone on here is saying that he is wrong, and R1 is the right button on the ps3 to use as a fire button for shooters.
Yahtzee got a few things wrong in this review. 1. GG is a Dutch company not an American company. 2. The British didn't save the Americans, the Americans saved the British. (Shows how much of an idiot he is for saying otherwise) 3. Well actually I think there is no three as he was right about us being owned by China. Although Russia is evil so I suppose you could count that. While he did make some good points about the game including the door breaking a few seconds later, I gotta say it is still a fun game worth buying. Still though, aside from the controls being better in KZ3 I think I preferred KZ2 better. Heck, even the hit detection was better in the prequel. Also next time GG really needs to get rid of the assault rifle on the Marksman.
I'm pretty sure Yahtzee didn't ONCE mention that GG was an American developer. He's highlighting the fact that the ISA is a predominantly American force, which it is. Dutch developer or not, American's fight the British in the game.
Does he like ANY game?? :) Very funny when he's explaining the cover system where you rest your chin on the cover, lol!
