There's an "in the style of" article here about Yahtzee and Zero Punctuation, and I have to say it's pretty accurate. http://uncyclopedia....iki/Ben_Croshaw

Leaving aside the glaring factual errors that include "Yahtzee is fairly keen on mentioning how great Australia is" and "Great writers donít write like other writers", the article's main points seem to be that Zero Punctuation is a series that "no one cares bugger-all about", "no one but him gives a shit", and that Yahtzee does not live in an country "the rest of the world actually gives two shits about".

Compelling stuff!

Hmmm, lots of unnecessary cursing, no justification given over what, five pages?, of saying that Yahtz sucks, writing style gets tiring after two sentences . . .

Yeah, fits right in with most of the rest of unclyclopedia.

Just let 'em troll, at least noone posted the ED article

Edit: Which, by the by, has a nice summary of his games...

So is this "in the style of" how he writes or just his game reviews?

Just his zero punctuation reviews, except they kind of miss the point.

That is the only Uncyclopedia page worth reading, IMHOO.

I'm not taking sides, however. I'm still expecting GameDagame to be a flop and Uncyclopedia should be dead in a few months time.



PS: Welcome back Ninja Duck.




By the way, what IS the point of ZP? "Videogames from a goon's perspective"?

It's like one of Rocky's training montages. Only with games and cussing.

Don't forget:

uncyclopedia said:

video games there are released several weeks to several months after theyíre released everywhere else, and at nearly double the cost: $100 Australian dollars compared to just $60 American.


Have to love totally ignoring the concept of an exchange rate.

The article included Germany in the list of 'proper' countries. Since when did Germany becomes a better alternative to Australia? Germans are always complaining about censorship.

I don't know, I think those are mostly the helplessly paranoid.

We got censorship when it comes to demagoguery and defamation of the memory of the deceased. Then that recent Stop-sign thingy with which they intend to block off child pornography sites and publishing of illegal content in general.

People complain more about what the government is going to come up with next or how "illegal" will be defined in the near future, but so far you can't really say that they're going overboard or abusing their power.

Ach, mein Leben, that would make for a fine line taken out of context.
