Zero Punctuation
« on: November 25, 2007, 03:15:16 pm »
I'm surprised we don't have a thread about this most magnificent of reviews yet:

Zero Punctuation is a game review published by the Escapist Magazine, featuring Ben "Yahtzee" Croshaw. The content isn't always entirely SFW, but it's damn funny and worth a watch.

My favourite one so far has been the Medal of Honor one; which is your favourite and why?

Uroboros occasionally sends me this guy's reviews and they're brilliantly worded and executed.

I liked most of them, he looks at the aspects of games most people ignore or don't even realise. I found it funny when he reviewed Tomb Raider Anniversary and decided not to mention female breasts through the review, lol.

Yahtzee is great.
I think my favorite may be tomb raider but I'll go look again.
Yeah, [Kishmond] came back from Africa, but the ponies have him now.

i love this guy...he just tells the truth in a way

did you know he made 1213 and 5,6 and 7 days?(those freeware games)

my favorite review has to be MoH because he pretty much explains america in 1 minute

Quote from: Krakow sam
That quote is actualy very witty, Celdur. I suggest you use that in your signature.

I'm in watching Zero Punctuation every week my favourite I dunno MoH was good but I can't help agreeing 100% when he got stuck into how long we have to wait for the release of Nintendo Games in Aus during the Paper Mario Game. Also seeing I had the game and the exact same opinions. Although is Psychonauts review was good even if he was nice tot he game I'm pissed that he got me squeezing a pencil in between my fingers when I actually own the game.

I should probably get round to finishing 7 days.....


But that bit at the end is freaky!

I don't get it, I did that part as hard as I could and it only hurt a little.
