Devil's Third

This week, Zero Punctuation reviews Devil's Third.

Watch Video

Wowy that was one of the best ZPs in a while.

Of all the things you could have got caught up with, you chose this?

I think it's either he heard it was bad and wanted to see just how bad it could possibility be(now regretting that decision) or he wanted to blow off some steam and figured he'd pick a game he could actually get worked up about.

I like Yahtzee at his best when he's reviewing an absolutely terrible game. The Conduit, Ride to Hell Retribution, Clive Barker's Jericho, MindJack, Dark...

I know they aren't exactly a good thing for keeping the likelihood of his suicide down, but I'll be damned if they aren't hilarious.

Although, I do remember him saying that getting to slag off Clive Barker's Clive Barker's Jericho by Clive Barker was a "way to unwind", and that he "de-stresses" after things like the aftermath of his The Last of Us review by reviewing things like Ride to Hell Retribution...

ill be glad when the page with this week's episode actually works so i can watch it..

Hey, Dave Mustaine stuck with Mega...Oh i seeeee. Well he also turned born again christian too. Nothing to compete with a Russian working for SOD...Ohhhh...

I get the feeling he just reviewed this because of its infamy and he wanted an easy target.

I'd get mad at him for that but I'm baffled as to how he even got a copy of it. The damn thing is rare.

"Looking forward to reviewing non-Wii U games at some point" implies that such a review would not be next, and instead there would be Mario Party 10 or Mario Tennis: "Mega Mushroom Edition".

Oh, the New Year release drought.

Are you sure the "Third" part of Devil's Third isn't just a meta way of saying that this was the thrid revision of the game itself, assuming each revision kept adding more shit instead of balancing which shit needed the most polish so that it doesn't end up feeling like you're playing a very rare turd overall?

Other than that, "drowning in a Bukkake" would be the most unintentionally funny thing to hear about during a porn award show memoriam... :p

So that's the second review of not-the-wii-u-game-I-expected in a row (yes, i'm ignoring the top 5 video), and I'm losing hopes of seeing a xenoblade chronicles X review. Oh well, at least that was entertaining.

Well, the Wii U was noticeably absent from his Top 5 video, which you might call in itself a negative review.

That many people bought it or that many people collected copies and burned them? Though I guess I can't discount the possibility that whoever made the game knew it wasn't gonna sell much and didn't bother with a large initial run.

Odd that he wonders when he will get to do a non-Wii U review. Why is he limited to that at this time? Isn't the number of titles to review for PS4 and XB1 dwarfing WiiU?

Trying to bulk up my Wii U library before it the system goes belly up. ZombieU: worst thing you could write. I hear it is hard. No thanks. Now I have to check into this. Hope it is easy.

Wow, we already got a good candidate for the worse game of 2016 for Yatzee award already???

I hate when people post the exact words I wanted to type.

Um.... Yeah.

Well, second week of 2016 and we already have a candidate for bottom five. It's gonna be one of those.

I wonder if he considers this game bad enough to take ride to hell's life time achievement award in total abhorrence?

Wow. Sounds like a truly horrible game.

Since October, not really, unless you count ports of PC games and "remasters". And, looking at the release schedule, he's pretty much going to be playing catch-up and filler until February (Unless he decides to do Lego Avengers).

Well, I can write this game off as something I want to play. I haven't seen Yahtzee so thoroughly tear something to pieces in months.

I actually really want him to review Xenoblade Chronicles X now. There are so many things wrong with that game, and yet, despite all its problems, it's so FUN! Would love to see how Yahtzee finds it.

Thank you for the Video Review. From the sounds of it the game provided plenty of material to comment on.
*Yelling and explosions in the background*

Would this game be considered better than bullet sponges with cover mechanic GoW style? Maybe enhancing the game with the Wii U - micro shake the controller to activate angry mode would make for a more immersive experience : )

I feel this is one of those games that is so bad that I want to play it anyway type experiences.

So long story short, Yahtzee: "SOD this excretory excuse of a game."

So how many original members are still in Megadeth by now?

Going for the low-hanging fruit this week?

I would hope that because you are asking, you must already know. But although i appreciate the band and have read Mustaine's autobiography, i still am not aware of their remaining original lineup (a google search would easily make me look a smart ass, but am preferring an honest lifestyle thesedays). But then The Red Hot Chilli Peppers had the same problems, yet i couldn't claim to follow their staff turnover either. ;)

Am I the only person to suspect that the escapist is going bust? This site has not worked properly since Christmas

This game looks so amusingly bad I want it.

I actually liked this game, but it was a funny review anyways. Yeah this game is quite a mess plot wise and jumps all over the place, but for me that was half the fun-waiting to see what crazy shit would happen next.

Cool to see Yahtzee reviewings games he missed from last year, he hasn't done that in awhile. Wonder if he'll review Rainbow Six Siege or Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 5 this month as well?

Only in the U.S., it came out months earlier overseas, it's a lot cheaper on Amazon UK compared to Amazon US.

Fortunately for me I bought a copy on Ebay before the price jumped to over 100 dollars, I knew it would go up fast as Wii U games tend to do.

Technically it wouldn't qualify for the worst of 2016 list since it came out last year.

The two Daves(Mustaine and Ellefson) are the only two original members remaining(and even Ellefson left for a few years at one point).

Ah thankyou for the info! Apart from Chris Broderick's addition, i was mostly clueless. It sounds quite similar to RHCPs and Alice in Chains. A lot of tradegy follows such minds unfortunately.

Nope video still not working for UK PAID member time to cancel my membership I think.

You know, it's really heartbreaking for me as a NGII and NGB fan to see this game suck so bad. Valhalla Games was the old guard who was behind NGII and before. But I do know that this game has had a pretty nasty development cycle, getting passed around from publisher to publisher until it FINALLY released. And now...

*sigh* Oh well...

I'm pretty sure alot of people had the same exact words to be fair regarding this game! xD

OT: Yahtzee pretty wrecked this turd, and for good reason, it's just not a good game in my view based on what I read in reviews, and seen in videos. And considering all the "hype" there was for this game (Nintendo not publishing for NA, but later reversing their decision) it got attention for the wrong reasons.
