I'm surprised Yahtzee didn't mention the one good game from Acclaim, namely Re-Volt. For anyone who doesn't know, it was a racing game about RC cars.

Shadow Man 1 was such a good fucking game that nobody played.

Also, anyone find it kind of sad that the turok thing didn’t work for acclaim but the dovakin thing worked for Bethesda?

I laughed my ass off at that courtroom scene. Dunno why but I find it hilarious

i got a super nintendo recently, Acclaim defined 'hit and miss'

1 week ago

1:20 That one was reserved for whatever would split off of acclaim. But no amount of cell splitting was going to help them survive.

You gonna do Fire Emblem: Three Houses?
Might finally explain the ancient riddle of "Who the hell is Marth" from the Super Smash Bros Review

Be fair, that still won’t answer that question. Though in all seriousness I would be interested to hear his opinion on Fire Emblem. On the one hand, he hates JRPGs and visual novel style dialogue. On the other hand, he’s frequently expressed enthusiasm for turn based strategy games. Honestly not sure how he’d feel about it, which makes things interesting.

can you please make a Retro Review on Legacy of Kain Defiance or the whole series? it's the best fkn game ever and still much playable due to its amazing dialogue and story and artstyle

1 week ago

have you done Ark: survival evolved yet? i can't find it if you did. :P

So very funny with the funny jokes and the imps and stuff! XD Oh, and nice N.W.A. and Grinch references! :D

The funny part is how many of acclaims ips were sold to Activision

He's actually not joking about the pigeons. Sweet Christ I didn't believe it. Bunch of loons ran that advertising department.

Outer Wilds was released on the Epic store earlier this year and I just discovered it. It's something special. Instead of shocking marketing, it seems to have just had... little marketing. Reward the creative game that didn't slaughter a goat to get attention and give it a review.

Yahtzee, why won't you do Divinity original sin 2?
