Default Zero Punctuation

Basicly, an Australian based Englishman ripping up any video game that crosses his path in a review with 'zero punctation'

These are hilareous. Anyone viewing the thead has to click on the link. Yes - I know Guitar Hero III is old but in my opinion it's one of his best reviews

(A new vedio gets posted every wednesday.)

ENJOY!

Yahtzee is nothing short of a genius.

I have been watching it for about 6 months now. I basically bought Saints row 2 on the strength of his review. Recommend it to anyway who plays computer games (PC and console)

I always particularly enjoyed his CoD 4 review, but all of them are awesome. His Duke Nukem Forever review was pure gold.

The guy is a genius, and a funny one too.
my personal favorite line is:
"If you've been paying attention you will have noticed that this is pretty standard FPS fare, and if you haven't been paying attention:"
*CLAP CLAP*
"OI!"

pure gold.

for anyone who's interested my Mirror's Edge review was a Yahtzee channelling.
I tore that game to shreds.

On the subject of Rat Ogres:
But if we give them laser eyes and mounted guns, we'll have to bring in Clan Skryre, and everyone knows how much those limp-tailed snuff addicts overcharge.

I've always liked the ones about games that are over-rated

eg for Halo 3 he said:

"or maybe Microsoft was paying someone to stand behind them jabbing neadles of dopeamine into thier spinal columns every half hour"

The only thing funnier is an Englishman unable to use his own language. Spelling fails in your OP, SS.

That's what us aussies are like though. If something really deserves it, you give it to them with both barrels and damn the torpedoes.

Hey! Where'd ... Everybody ... go?

Spelling isn't my strong point, obviously. But the point was to spread the word about Yatzee even if it's grammaticly incorrect.

His review on Sims 3 was especially amusing, as he likened women to being completely evil.

something about controlling us with their emotions - and something about bleeding spam sandwiches... i'll let you go and watch it yourself.

I've been watching Zero Punctuation for probably a year now. I love it to death. He had the exact sentiments as I did on Condemned 1 and 2. Cheers to OP for having good taste.
