Wii Fit Week Eight!

16 Mar

Wow, week eight? It has been a pretty good run through Day One, Week One, Week Two, Week Three, Week Four, Week Five, Week Six and Week Seven! However, this week I didn’t work out, even when I had some time and I’m sure the five course beer dinner didn’t help me out much either. In any event, I promised I would update my readers weekly on my progress, and here it is:

I gained about a half pound this week :(

Zero Punctuation

From ZPs console war rundown

From ZP's console war rundown

As I mentioned yesterday, today I am going to talk about another foul mouthed video game reviewer that I watch as often as possible. This one is Zero Punctuation. Zero Punctuation is a British gentleman named Yahtzee currently residing in Australia. Unlike the AVGN, Yahtzee works nearly exclusively with current or brand new video games.

However, like the AVGN, he hates most of the games he reviews and curses like a sailor.  Yahtzee also doesn’t normally appear in his videos. He opts for a yellow background with near stick figures running around. As I’m sure you’ll figure out quickly, Yahtzee is always the character with the hat.

Yahtzee started on YouTube, but has been signed on by Escapist Magazine to exclusively review on their site. This means that nearly every Wednesday afternoon there will be a new Zero Punctuation Episode. I much prefer the weekly entries to AVGN’s sporadic release schedule.

Some of my favorite videos include the Super Smash Bros. Brawl, Army of Two and Guitar Hero III. Last weeks review of Soul Caliber IV was especially hilarious. Of course, I do not know what today’s will hold! (Those links are to videos)

Past the break I have posted a couple of Yahtzee’s episodes from YouTube prior to his signing on with Escapist. WordPress will not allow me to embed from Escapist Magazine’s site, so I cannot put most of his best videos below. Some are available on YouTube, but I do not wish to use illegal videos. Escapist owns the rights to the videos (and the ad revenue they bring in).

AGAIN, the language in these videos will be NSFW!

Angry Video Game Nerd

This is from AVGNs review of the Power Glove

This is from AVGN's review of the Power Glove

The Angry Video Game Nerd (formerly known as the Angry Nintendo Nerd) is a reviewer of classic old video games. What makes him angry is the fact that he doesn’t review good games. In fact, he exclusively reviews crappy old games.

He reviews them while drinking beer (normally Rolling Rock) and spewing obscenities. At times it seems he has a minimum curse word count that he must reach to publish his videos.

His antics are very humorous and include crappy special effects and at times guest stars (Like Batman and Joker in his recent videos). I am a huge fan of his theme song written by Kyle Justin (Older videos won’t have the theme song).

You can find all of his videos at his website. You may notice that the site is “CineMassacre” which is his main gig. Check out CineMassacre.com to see some varied non-Hollywood type movies. YouTube doesn’t have many of his videos but I found a couple and have posted them past the break. These WILL be NSFW, so watch wisely!
