As for the music, he mentioned specifically when he stopped that he had been ripping them off.  Not much you can do about fair use in that context.  The songs weren't the targets of the parody, so I doubt he'd have a leg to stand on when the Aussie version of the RIAA came calling. 

As for the ads, you can place the blame for that squarely on the site that he works for.  I'd much rather the ads be on the back side of the video so I can kill it and go do something else than have to wait through them before I get to watch the video.

As with all things, there are always those where first = best.  I'll take the new, different versions over not having it all.

They could at least kill the intro entirely though - just go straight into the review.

Since none of you decided to update this last week, I didn't see it until now:

Age of Conan.

Fantastic. Same with the fun fact at the end:

"Ninja Gaiden was specifically designed by Japanese developers to appeal to Western audiences, and I'm not sure if that says more about them or us."

Go figure.

Oh, and consider this a bump, but I COMPLETELY agree that #4 is a VERY large reason as to why there's Star Wars crapola in my Soul Calibur (TWO words, people!) fighting game.

This week, Yahtzee hits the final frontier in search of a truly different MMO.

Instead, he finds Eve Online.

... and stomps into the ground with very big boots.
