    Reviews by Australian man who talks really fast, swears, and animates with limbless people. In short, brilliant. This is the first one.

    Likewise.

    Also, if you're into adventure games and haven't already checked out his 5 Days a Stranger, do so. It be good.

    He. Is. Awesome.

    @thom
    He's actually not Australian. I believe he's British living in Australia (I only point this out because he points it out several times).

    I love his reviewing style, only caught onto him a few months ago. Reminds me of a guy who used to talk similarly for stuff on BBC2 and, I think, radio before that. Any Brits know who I'm talking about? Not remembering is itching my brain...

    He's somewhere between Vitor Lewis-Smith and Charlie Brooker with his delivery.

    Here's his pre-escapist review of Fable, it's brilliant (and why we love him so much here at Lionhead towers).

    Victor Lewis-Smith! That's him. Thank you for relieving the itching so quickly Flabyo.

    Synthsapien: Do you mean Charlie Brooker? He does tv reviewing, not video games though.

    He did a bit on Torchwood that still make me cry laughing.

    He's very funny, but I seem to disagree with him at least half the time.
    If you like his reviews it's also worth watching an episode or two of Consolevania. You should also watch that if you find Scottish people as entertaining as I do.

    @ Orsonwellseyes - Flaybo got it spot on with VLS. Charlie Brooker is the slower version :)

    @fro - are you sure they're all Scottish? One refers to himself as 'Scotch' which is a drink. The people of Scotland are SCOTS.

    If there's anyone I'd like to have do a residency on here, t'would be Yahtzee.

    He did webcomics and stuff

    I'm fairly sure he uses a compressor to speed up his speech, but yeah, the guy is brilliant. I'm glad he gets paid for this, now...

    Riiiight - British, not Australian.

    All I know is he says "pants on their heads retarded" a LOT.

    Welp, all illusions of productivity in the workplace today have now been sucked into YouTube hell.....

    I knew this sounded familiar. Andrenavarro <a href="http://freakangels.com/whitechapel/comments.php?DiscussionID=1739&page=1#Item_3">posted about this</a> nearly two weeks ago.

    Funny stuff, too.

    I'm seconding the "check out the "Chzo Mythos" games" notion. Really wonderful, terrifying stuff.

    Oh my God. That is awesome.

    He doesn't. In his "Uncharted" review, he films himself talking for about fifteen seconds. He actually talks this fast.

    And yes, he's absolutely brilliant.

    I'm having a time out until I can learn some manners.
    I wish this guy would fuck off, if only because of the fans. And ranting is fucking tiring.

    Funny how he never takes his own criticism into account when designing his own games.
