This week, Ben "Yahtzee" Crowshaw reviews Popcap's "Peggle".

not a real embedded video lol

So, who else thinks that Zero Punctuation is the best thing to hit game reviewing since the arsecast?

Some of Yahtzee's previous projects:
6 Days a Sacrifice
Trilby's Notes
5 Days a Stranger
1213 Episodes 1 2 and 3
Adventures in the Galaxy of Fantabulous Wonderment

I love Zero Punctuation. Graham, is that you? Seriously, it sounds like graham! I think he gave up the arsecast, got himself a new identity and started doing this instead. He's just keeping it a secret from us! You'll see!

Blah - yet again someone forgot to make the pseudo-embedded movie open in a new window...

As to Yahtzee - if I were a woman I'd want to bear his children. :-D

Gun Battle Slap Fight 37!
The original pales in comparison :P

It probably wouldn't have existed if it weren't for the Arsecast, but I think Zero Punctuation is much better. Yahtzee also makes kick ass games, so I respect him big time.

He's certainly a shitload more diligent than me, that's for sure. And yes, the visuals combined with the dialogue elevate it a lot. I just wish that The Escapist would buy him more new games so it was consistently topical rather than every other week.

And anyhoo he sounds nothing like my voice. He sounds more like Dr Ashen's who did those reviews of crappy consoles. :P

Graham, my ears are simple things, they think you all sound similar :(
It's not a bad thing though, its like the best accent ever or something.

Ta'. It is particularly excellent for ordering a cup of tea and crumpets. ;)
