Agreeable review. My complaints would have been the same (too much doing the same things, puzzle difficulty later on) but he liked it overall it seems.

Yeah, good review that also touches on stuff that I think we all agreed on, just Croteam didn't *coughboxonminescough*.

The thing about Yahtzee that his videos are rarely proper reviews, but intentionally over negative cartoons. On the other hand, he got a mostly serious-ish article series, called the Extra Punctuation. I really recommend these, because he often talks about game design, or elaborates on his actual thoughts regards the last game he played.

He also posts silly things like theories about how most games take place in the same universe... which are actually very well thought out! (And remind me of the early drafts of SSHDX's changed story that would reference that Serious Sam and Assassin's Creed takes place in the same universe. ).

Two of those articles are found here:

Unless when I use this nice blue color I totally didn't steal from Blizzard.

Zero Punctuation isn't a review, it's a critique if anything.

Great video and really hit the nail on the head regarding the few criticisms I had about the game. I mean, it is still one of my favorite games of 2014, but it also isn't perfect. I loved his commentary regarding the Messengers, absolutely perfect Solve a puzzle so you can solve a puzzle, lol. But overall it sounds like he actually enjoyed the game quite a bit.

P.S. I am sure Pan likes a cocksucking cowboy from time to time.

And guess what? This week's Extra Punctuation is about Talos.

Heh, that brought me here, but not much activity... didn't get the game, but interesting enough that I may check it out eventually.
