I wasn't a huge fan of this one, but I don't know (or care) about Silent Hill, so I'm not really the target audience.  Still funny, though.

I find I'm getting more of my reviews from Zero Punctuation.

I hate when games (and gamers) confuse "OMG LOOK BOOBIES" with maturity. Not to say that b00bies are bad, or that they should not be ogled, but that it's fucking childish, ESPECIALLY when the boobies are polygons.

Well, it is also an 'intro' review, as for whatever reason he couldn't get past the first chapter (apparently).

Never in my wildest dreams did I expect to see Captain Planet show up in a review. I was wrong. biggrin

And CoD should be interesting, as he doesn't play multiplayer in those types of games.
