A Very Different Bioshock Review
I love sarcasm. It is such a guilty pleasure. Which is why I tend to enjoy most British humor (or is that humour?), even if my American friends don’t get it most of the time. The closest thing we’ve got to dry sarcastic British wit here in the states is comedian Lewis Black.
God bless his angry little heart.
With that said, it is seldom that we get treated to game reviews that border on mere lunacy. The Escapist’s Zero Punctuation provides a much needed breath of fresh air to that medium – a comedy roast of games, if you will, where the game (or gamers) get the sharp pointed end of the stick. This week, ZP’s Yahtzee throws a knuckle ball of a video/audio review for the highly acclaimed video game, Bioshock. You know, the game every popular internet site seems to be giving flawless 10/10 scores on? Even the crickets living under my house have heard of Bioshock. Those noisy bastages…
Anyway, if you aren’t afraid of a lunatic brit’ serving a wee bit o’ sarcasm, sprinkling a little naughty language, flaming the main course to a zesty char, clubbing baby seals along the way, and the best… torturing us with Ringo Starr’s singing – all crammed into our ear at 200 wpm – then you must check out Zero Punctuation’s Review of Bioshock. If at the end of watching this you aren’t laughing, GET yourself some punctuation.
