The perfect kind of game for him to review.
StanleyPain - 2014-05-23
Just FYI, for those who have not played/seen this game, the villain IS really called Skullface. This is not a Yahtzee joke.

The absolute worst that the fan-fearing, homogenized resonance chamber of a Japanese gaming industry has to offer.

I recently purchased Dark Souls 2. If bang for your buck is your measuring stick, then DS2 is the antithesis of this pay-to-play Demo. For I've already sunk 96 hours into the game and I haven't finished it yet. And I don't mean I haven't gotten 100% + all special achievements OCD gamer bullshit, I mean I have yet to reach the final level and kill the last boss.

no you're an echo chamber shut up (goes back to echo chamber)

if they feared their fans, they would've released a finished game.

infinite zest - 2014-05-23
YES! Yahtzee summed it up better than I could. I remember I got MGS the Japanese demo from a PSX magazine or something for like 7 dollars and it was rad. Also it was a demo. With other games on it because I got bored. Is this one really that short?
Riskbreaker - 2014-05-23
Is the video game "press" praising this thing? I guess so, but you don't need an obnoxious british hipster to tell you it's just a fucking demo.
StanleyPain - 2014-05-23
There's a lot of terms applicable to Yahtzee Crosshaw, but I don't think hipster is really one of them.

It's gotten lower ratings than nearly every previous Metal Gear. Reviews range from "It's OK if you like replaying stuff for a better score/rating" to "Oh, Kojima. Oh dear. Oh no."

oddeye - 2014-05-23
I honestly have no idea why anyone would like a metal gear solid game after the first. Unlike me, they are boring and shit.
poorwill - 2014-05-23
The first one sucked too.

oddeye - 2014-05-23
How do these games keep getting good reviews? I know there are shit-tons of payoffs and such but even ordinary folk rave about this hokey bullshit.

poorwill - 2014-05-24
Widespread undiagnosed mental illness.

CornOnTheCabre - 2014-05-23
As someone who got this game through Redbox and finished it that day, I have to say you can do a lot worse for 2 dollars.
Father Avalanche - 2014-05-24
Spot on.

Jet Bin Fever - 2014-05-23
I wish I lived in a world where shitty media and games don't make money and really good ones do. There's a bizarro Jet Bin Fever who is happily enjoying blockbuster movies and AAA videogames this Summer somewhere in the multiverse.
oddeye - 2014-05-23
Maybe all those big budget Michael Bay movies are so successful because the majority of the population finds them brilliant and fun and you are just unable to comprehend others finding joy where you can't, you stone hearted beast!

Jet Bin Fever - 2014-05-24
:( Your words wound me. Are you somehow implying that I'm NOT the arbiter of all taste and culture in our society? I'm shocked!

oddeye - 2014-05-25
Just clowning dude, I'm not cancelling my subscription to "Jet Bin Reviews" anytime soon.

Jet Bin Fever - 2014-05-25
Good, I was just about to do a several hour hundred-plus-part series on all the Doctor Who episodes and which ones I think are STUPID CRAP and which ones are awesome crap.

The problem here is that most game reviewers don't pay for the products they review. So the biggest problem with this game --that it's a goddamn demo -- is automatically negated for them. And they're too busy fapping to OMG OPEN WORLD GAMEPLAY to notice that the people who read their reviews actually pay money for these things.
oddeye - 2014-05-24
They also get paid a wage for reviewing the game and are usually sent all sorts of incentives like fancy figurines and shit. Plus they get bribed.

Didn't one fella that gave that awful Aliens: Colonial Marines turd a bad review get fired or some such over it?

EvilHomer - 2014-05-24
So I know absolutely nothing about this game aside from the review I just watched. Just how "open world" and "emergent" is this game? Because I am totally the sort of gamer who can get hours of pleasure out of arranging dead bodies into swastika patterns.
EvilHomer - 2014-05-24
Related point: Yahtzee is a very entertaining reviewer, but his priorities are absolute rubbish at times. He constantly rags on sandbox/ open-world gameplay, and seems to prefer games which hold his hand and keep him on rails, just so long as the rails remain "gamey" enough to distract him from the stupid plot.
