Zero Punctuation - A different take on reviewing games

I think this guy is funny and a better reviewer than most commercial reviewers (as in, not bought and paid for by the developers). Check out some of his reviews. A new review is posted every Wednesday.

About Condemned 2: Bloodshot until about the mid-point...
forensics clever, combat visceral, atmosphere pant-wetting.
You seem like the kind of person who'll lie.
However... this sword doesn't lie.

I love Yathzee's reviews. There isn't any I don't like, and he does a great job tearing into games. My current favorite right now is the one where he publicly responds to the slew of hate e-mauils he got after his review of Super Smash Bros. Brawl. XD Needless to say, I check up every Wednesday for new reviews.

That makes two of us. I like that he doesn't sugarcoat things when criticizing games, nor does he give the numerical score so many reviewers do.

My favorite of his reviews have to be his "Army of Two" review and his review of "The World Ends With You". Those two make me laugh the hardest.
What is life? What if all it is is God playing a game of The Sims? Or even his own version of Final Fantasy? ~Me

I'm a devout follower of Yathzee.

All of his reviews are very funny, and he makes very good points. Plus, it gets just insane, and that's just hilarious. ^_^

My current favorites are:
Painkiller
E-mail response for Brawl
The Witcher
Alone in the Dark
-Adam Picard-
Blake? oh, like a coffee break!!
Poet? What is that? Is it tasty? Is it a popular new snack? Usagi, Stars 179

James: For some reason I'm seeing you in a nurse's uniform...
Steve: Thank you Jeff, that will be all. ... He's not here, is he? Oh God I've internalized him...
