ok, some people might not have heard of Yahtzee or Zero Punctuation, or The Escapist Magazine at all, so here is a link to the Assasszin's Creed Brotherhood review:

http://www.escapistmagazine.co...ns-Creed-Brotherhood (http://www.escapistmagazine.com/videos/view/zero-punctuation/2519-Assassins-Creed-Brotherhood)

also know that he has a review for the first two chapters as well, along with many other games, i tend to agree with him on alot of things, so enjoy, and tell me what you think of his review

very similar actually, it depends on what part of australia you are in, some parts even have some french, but the "aussie" version of english is very dominant, think of it as the southern slang of the british dialects

Nope, it's an English accent. Although when he talks fast it sometimes sounds American.

Australian accents are really annoying.

Well he can be funny but that's all he is, fun entertainment. As a serious critic? Naah as the bashing is just his gimmick and can't be taken seriously.

And he's born in England and now lives in Australia.

Why are you guys so bothered if he's british or not? What do you think he might have a big nose or something, so you cant enjoy the humor?...

I think he's pretty funny tbh and think his voice would make a better sarcastic shawn.

Are you insinuating that people from the UK all have big noses and as such, can not possibly understand humour?

Incidentally I am British and happen to have quite a big nose... Nevertheless, the British nose tends to be average-sized. Racist! http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/51.gif

Anyway, we Brits have a great sense of humour. Come on, we invented cricket and then fooled people into thinking it was a sport! *gasps* oh the hilarity

It says under the video:


Yahtzee is a British-born, currently Australian-based writer and gamer with a sweet hat and a chip on his shoulder. When he isn't talking very fast into a headset mic he also designs freeware adventure games and has a novel coming out soon. His personal site is www.fullyramblomatic.com (http://www.fullyramblomatic.com).

Honestly, I find American humour to be somewhat... lacking. It's too heavily focused on lead, punchline. I prefer the wit of Monty Python and modern English (and British) comedians.

He's got a good sense of humour though.

Also, I'm from right next door to Australia.

And Yahtzee is British-born but lives in Australia. His accent is more awesome when living there because he's keeping it in favour of starting to sound like an Aussie. Which would mean a far less awesome accent than he currently has.

If you're going to turn this into an arguement over America's contribution during the war, you chose the wrong thread to do it in, especially since I'm keeping my eye on this thread.

If you think the US "saved the world" or even the UK for that matter, forom speaking German, you're sadly mistaken. By the time the US joined the war in Europe the germans had already invaded the USSR, and were well on the way to losing the war in Africa. Granted, US involvement probably speeded up Nazi germany's defeat, but without a doubt it was already well on the way to ruin.

You seem to forget that the US was the only country involved in either World War that was practically immune from damage due to it's distance from any theatre of warfare... I don't remember seeing any pictures of Washington DC in ruin, or New York. So don't insult me by suggesting that we were helpless and doomed to failure without your so called support.

The "honor of your country"? Don't make me laugh.

^^^ This.


Plus, if you're so keen on taking credit for America's actions in WW2, tell me: why didn't you just DEMONSTRATE the power of an A-bomb to the Japanese, rather than using it to slaughter two cities full of innocent civilians?

The war started in 1939, the US didn't really get involved until 1942... that's three years.

ok ok ok, im sorry i brought it up, also, i dont stereotype the british with anything besides being british, i never said america was perfect, god knows we arent, i never said "amercia saved the world" simply that we helped, i'd also like to point out that THE BRITISH BURNED DOWN THE WHITEHOUSE and 911, there's your "cities in ruin" personally, i'd rather live in the UK, or itally, than america, but i dont have the money to make such a dramatic move, so oh well, i never insinuated that america was better, there was a time that we were better than we are now, but that time is long past, and now we're kinda coasting, but that's enough of this "who's better" and all this war crap, it's over, americans get a ftw, but america itself, im not so sure about that, let's stop talking about it, i'd really hate for this thread to be shut down because it's become unconstructive, i apologize for bringing it up

back to the topic; yahtzee is really great, i do feel sorry that he gets the short end of the stick when it comes to game releases, but he takes it in stride, so good for him, personally, i wish i was his neighbor, no telling what kind of antics he gets up to

I rather like Yahtzees highly critical reviewing style; if a game impresses him then you know it must be pretty bloody good. Although sometimes it's hard to tell whether or not he likes a game.

you are terrible at math.

World War 2 started in September of 1939. America joined in December of 1941. that is just over 2 years. But nearly that the whole time we were supplying the Soviets and UK with all sorts of supplies.

this whole argument is utterly ******ed though. Who won ww2? the allies. who did the most work? who gives a ****, its useless argument that equates to people living vicariously through the past actions of others. Its a ****ing match and its pointless.

Technically, I didn't mention months, so '39 to '42 is three years. Also, i'm aware the US declared war in December '41, but they didn't practically get involved in Europe until '43.

I'm not arguing about the war now, just the dates :P
