Zero Punctuation

A link that’s been going around work for a bit is for an Escapist feature called Zero Punctuation. Essentially, it’s a weekly submission by a delightfully-accented man (British-born, Australian-resident) ranting and raving about various things.

This episode was too good not to share:

This episode is about the current console wars (which it describes with amazing accuracy and insight), and during the PS3 part it describes the fundamental experience of a Final Fantasy game as: “Like listening to the Star Wars soundtrack while huffing nitrous oxide and reading an Excel spreadsheet”

Which sounds about right to me. At least for the recent incarnations.

  1. Don’t cheat yourself. Watch all the video reviews available, especially the one of Psychonauts. Astounding. His astute-metaphor-per-minute ratio is astounding.

  2. Hmmm, I’ve got to check that out. I haven’t been following the Escapist as much lately, with their new format. I know it’s more normal, but I liked the whole faux magazine feel.

  3. That was awesome, thanks Mike!
