He has never been so happy about a game. 

The closest I remember him being happy about something was when he was reviewing the Orange Box. He noted he had nothing bad to say about Portal, he actually liked it, but since that's not entertaining he quickly changed subjects.

Heh, I figured that one would be ripe for the picking.  I don't agree with his assessment that the swinging mechanic is stiff and doesn't work well, but his other complaints are all pretty much valid.

And the "Lesser-known Spiderman Villain" Yahtzee reviews InFamous this week. Shockingly, he seems to actually like it.

Yeesh, what is it about inFamous that makes people like it?  I like it, and some of the glitches annoy the hell out of me still.  Yahtzee seemed to like it, and he's paid to find things not to like about games and make fun of it.

It's an open-world game and things blow up quite nicely. Oh, and it's fun being evil. biggrin

I also love Yahtzee's other blurb about how your powers in InFamous actually give a good reason as to why you can't swim.

And up this week - Yahtzee takes on E3 and makes you ponder the following:

Quote
"Sonic All-Stars Racing! First thought - why the fuck does Sonic the Hedgehog need a car? Second thought - why the fuck does Sonic the Hedgehog still need to exist?"

And you'll also hear the strangest ending music you'll ever hear in ZP.

Agreed. The game itself is a ton of fun, and what flaws it has aren't that bad.

Maybe he secretly doesn't like the Ghostbusters movie.

Or his nostalgia for it clouds his judgment. It's a fun movie, always has been, and is a classic. But it's a campy funny flick at its core - it isn't high art.

He slams RFG a bit, but I view his reviews as more of an entertainment rather than something truly objective. His comments regarding Saints Row 2, which he said he liked very much, made me go watch that review again. He doesn't say that much positive about the game, but compared to how he rips others, it does seem like he almost fawned over SR2.
