Yeah, really. I was waiting for his usual Wednesday update and was so happy to see SotC on there, especially considering he rarely gives out good reviews. He and I tend to agree on the good ones.

LOL. Oh that made my day. I like his reviews and glad he said he enjoyed this game.

Was about to start a new thread on this, then thought I'd better check first. Good work, thefoldarsoldar. Now I don't have to worry about being modded for posting links to objectionable content.

As usual, Yahtzee manages to grasp the heart of the game. The importance of variety, how the ponderousness of the Colossi really adds to the feeling of size, etc.

I was a little unhappy to see him discuss Ico. Makes him less likely to do a full review of it.

My only gripe with Zero Punctuation is that he hates good games. Like, 99.9% of great titles that I love he puts down.

Soulcalibur IV, Mass Effect, Starcraft, and Brawl are bad games? Look, pal, there are just some things that are objectively awesome, like kittens, breasts, ice cream, and money. You might think you're cool for putting down a triple-A title like Mass Effect, but you just come across as an elitist ass.

At least you're funny.

He's a critic. The games you happen to like aren't objectively perfect.

You just haven't caught on to his humour. Even the stuff he likes, he still find things about it to make fun of.

Yahtzee slams Silent Hill 2 pretty hard about bizarre key crafting, and it's his favorite game. Psychonauts gets some criticism as well.

The only other game I have that he's reviewed is Tomb Raider: Anniversary

He gives it the treatment it deserves.

Remember, too, that when he reviewed Psychonauts people weren't happy, because he liked it.

No one watches Zero Punctuation to hear him praise a game, so his general mantra is "Anything I don't mention was good". If he just gave great reviews to all the triple-A titles, he wouldn't have nearly as large a fanbase as he does.
