This week, Zero Punctuation reviews Red Dead Redemption.
... he has a unique vocabulary library.
Yeah brilliant ! He invented that joke right ? We don't ear it every day on every website since the release of the game... right ? Green Spleen Submarine is pretty funny though.
But it seemed to me like he was just trying hard not to appear to like it. The controls feel a lot smoother compared with GTA 4, and I've yet to encounter any bugs more serious than a piano player sitting below his chair. Also, he blatantly didn't play Lost & Damned. I fucking crashed head-on into a truck, and I managed to stay on. Definite improvement over the shitty bike handling in the vanilla game.
Well I'm not saying he did play it or anything but I once flew about 2 miles when I hit something in TL&D. And lived. Took forever to find my bike again. And yeah, he tries his hardest to be as negative as possible in all situations not having to do with Portal and Prince of Persia. Also, if anyone can please tell me if there's any spoilers in this review. He occasionally does that.
Can't wait to see what they do in Green Spleen Submarine 2! lol Fucking epic review.
another brilliant review!
the best way to brighten your day? Watch a ZP review!
"Grand Theft Mammal".
...I really get the feeling Yahtzee didn't play more than an hour.
Well, if he got eaten by a mountain lion he at least made it to the Plains...
I saw a mountain Lion very early on in the game, the first time you ride up to fort mercer...
not necessarily, there are even cougars a.k.a. mountain lions in Hennigan's Stead.
sooo, he kinda liked it!
"Doors are not difficult technology" LMFAO.
Say what you will about Yahtzee.....He's hilarious. I thought Purple Monkey Dishwasher was a good game......The hours of riding your horses trying to get to a mission target (thing) was my biggest complaint though.......
that has got to be one of the most annying things in game ever, right after rideing the elevators in Mass Effect 1.
Well that's when people try to admire the scenery. It works if you try.
haha great review
Mountain lion .. rofl ..
Nice to see someone else liked the sailing in Wind Waker.
...and it's so funny because yesterday I prestiged the 1st time or maybe it's second...I don't know, anyway I unlocked the buffalo. I rode around to start the challenges for the second time. Shot the 5 rabbits and got 10 headshots, then was consumed with almost an immediate sense of boredom with the online play. I'm definitely going to finish this game sometime this year and I LOVE the fact that there is a lot to do. But like most sand box games regardless of how much I enjoy them, they are pretty limiting after a while and repetition is the order of the day. Thank god I'm only on the second mission and just got to Mexico. I've got to make sure I am playing RDR all summer :) and waiting for the coop.
but that illusion only lasts so much...then it just feels empty =( i haven't gotten that w RDR YET, but got it with GTAIV and Infamous =(
...but can still play that game off and on. I got that boredom feeling on GTA4 on my 1st play through when I got to a mission where you have to take out a gang at their hideout right around the time you kill that black dude and take his condo if I recall correctly. About 15 hours after I beat Fallout 3 I started to get that feeling only because the expansion were so glitched with my copy :(. I know I feel this way with RDR much sooner because I started free roam before SP and spent most of my time in multiplayer. I realized that many of the challenges are repeated in muliplayer and single player games and after learning that many challenges just give titles I got kind of bummed. So I already feel like I've done most of the stuff in RDR twice. Likewise I enjoy advancing in games to get new weapons and upgrades to feel stronger. However since I've gotten to 50 twice in MP I already know what I'll eventually get weapon and mount wise and now the SP feels somehow slow because I don't have my weapons of choice yet. I just got to Mexico. Also I asked a pal of mine to tell me the end and while the game isn't ruined for me because the story ends the way I expected I'm not ready to see the end.
Use your bonfir... don't spend half a day riding. I wuv this man
Most people dont seem to be aware you can do that lol.
only don't do it when im actually in the mood to waste hours in the plains =D otherwise, constantly
Because I knew he would like the game. Sure he is obligated to say what is bad about the game and magnify it x10 but he did have some good things to say about the game as well (like how he played it for hours due to immersion). Great review yahtzee. Keep doing what your doing.
he reviews are so true
although the game is great, over all its very pointless in a lot of aspects (unless you are following the challenges) and its definitely empty, but nonetheless a great game =)
the thing that I don't entirely get is why he expects any different from a R* game, they generally are well written and generally are good looking but they've never been much more than very enjoyable time-sinks, although personally, I've probably got a bit of a skewed viewpoint because 1. I loved the story and actually cared for John 2.I love westerns so this game was like a dream come true..... But it doesn't sound like he actually played it more than an hour or two at most, and he obviously didn't pay attention to any of the tutorials because he would've found out that there are different difficulty levels for aiming. Still, I really have to agree on the press x a bunch of times to run fast thing. It was kind neat when they had it in San Andreas because it's a fast paced game, but it's just such a bother now with GTA IV and RDR having it because they are much slower games naturally. I've always thought that the Uncharted games got it just right, not only does Nate's move set change as a result of what's going on (so he runs in a gunfight, crouches and creeps around in stealth, walks when he's relaxed etc.) but as an added bonus, you can fire off rounds when you run around going in and out of cover, which is something that was really lacking in GTA IV and RDR. A gunfight isn't anywhere near as visceral if you can't blind fire while running, sure it's inaccurate, but with proper enemy AI you could give yourself come cover-fire and send them cowering while going from cover to cover, rather than just letting everyone unload into you as you try to aim and fire at the same time as tapping x for dear life.
