It's not just what he says, but his use of those simple graphic animations is just spot-on.  He's got a great thing going here.

HAHA. I like how he says (referring to MoH: Airborn) "I only played the single player as usual so again maybe the multiplayer makes up for it but it would need to teleport whores into the bedroom before I started caring".

Classic!

This week's target (no pun intended) is Assassin's Creed.  Brilliant, as always.  Much funnier when I've actually played the game, unlike every review he's done since Peggle.

This was hilarious.  I don't know how he keeps doing it, but these just keep getting funnier.

On Sunday evening while we were all recovering from the Rock Band party on Saturday I mentioned Zero Punctuation and everyone looked at me with blank stares.  I loaded up one of his reviews just to provide an example, and after the first one everyone had me load up one more, then one more, then one more, until we had watched every single one.  And after repeat viewings I noticed many more subtle things I missed during the first go-round. 

My wife was laughing out loud during each and every review.  And now even she can't wait for new reviews to be posted.

That's just because you're not good enough.

I thought he was fair about it, even though the tutorial indicates the difference in modes has more to do with being subtle or suspicious. If you do anything with the right trigger you'll hear people comment about your actions.

Awesome, as always, and I completely agree.  I hit the same brick wall on Hard - the last set is fracking ridiculous, not even remotely close to the rest of the songs on the level, and light years harder than 'Hard' level in GH1 or GH2.  I quit trying to finish Hard mode weeks ago - the brilliance of the first game was that it kept you playing and got harder without frustrating you.  This game doesn't have the same magic.  Too bad, because the song list is pretty awesome.
