Zero Punctuation

I may be coming to this party a little late - indeed, some people are probably already standing at the door with their coats and hats - but for the distinct possibility that you haven't experienced "Zero Punctuation" I have to blog about it.

"Zero Punctuation" is basically a series of video-based video game reviews helmed by a snarky British/Australian gamer with a rapier's wit and a penchant for talking really, really fast, whose pseudonym is Yahtzee. Seriously.

In a meta-video-slash-announcement that he was jumping ship to do reviews over at The Escapist Magazine, Yahtzee described releasing videos on YouTube, and I'm paraphrasing, as living on a deserted island and throwing bottled messages into a sea composed entirely of bottled messages. Sort of the like the Police song.

I think the analogy is brilliant, and that should give you an idea of what you should expect if you wander over to YouTube or The Escapist to check out the reviews.

Or, if you prefer, you can watch the review of The Orange Box below.
