    Oh hey, looks like I got the first review That s gotta be the first time that s happened.Anyway, I really find myself wishing for half stars again, cause this is a fairly solid three and a half star book But, given my love for Yahtzee, I felt I should round up It s a loyalty thing It was a fun read, with plenty of smirks and one or two genuine laughs, but none of the full out guffaws I m used to from his work with The Escapist, and definitely not as much as comedic virtuosos

    Yahtzee is one of my favorite game critics, not just because his Zero Punctuation series is hilarious but because he s generally spot on with his criticisms, especially where storytelling is concerned, because he understands when it works and when it doesn t Unfortunately, not all of his own advice makes it into his first published novel, and the results are a bit disappointing This is by no means a bad book it s frequently funny and full of clever and original ideas but it doe

    For a debut novel, and a genre that I seldom read, I thought Yahtzee did exceptionally well The book is at its core a parody of MMORPG s, aka World of Warcraft mainly Many jokes are in there for gamers and lovers of linguistics alike The narrator and main character, Jim, is an undead guy which somewhat throws a spanner in the works however Throughout the novel various entities try to have him killed, and Jim s goal is to stay dea...

    The only thing that carries over from Yahtzee s video game reviews is his unfailing cynicism While that works well for him as a critic, it does him little favors as a novelist The protagonist is essentially Yahtzee s internet persona thrown into a fantasy world, and his never ending stream of complaints and pessimism about the book world only serve to make him impossible to like as a reader If I ve learned anything about writing through my years as a reader, it s that you should ne

    This is reallyof a two and a half, but I m being generous on the grounds of great idea, iffy execution This would ve made a spectacular short story or novella the idea here is fresh, taking your typical swords and sorcery novel and turning it on its head in several ways, from the choice of protagonist an undead minion to the framing device it s ...

    After two lazy fat jokes in the first three chapters, I decided not to finish this one This disappoints me I love Croshaw s video game reviews, but this lacks the clever wit that those have As far as I can recall, the humor in his reviews have never been lazy as these bits I had passed on from life, from the world of struggles and hardship and big fat women with annoying laughs, and entered a glorious new existence of utter peace, joy, and love I might have been surrounded by stupid pe

    This book is Simon Peg Nick Frost meets World of Warcraft I can t remember if I got this in the same ebook bundle as Jam or a different one, but I chose Jam of this one to read first because it sounded like I d enjoyI never played WoW or any of its ancestors or any progeny As of this writing never even played Diablo or any of its clones So Jam seemedup my ally especially after I confirmed it wasof a spiritual successor to Mogworld than a Sequel One of the programmers in This book is Simo

    This was an audiobook I picked partly because Audible had a sale and partly out of curiosity to see how badly someone who s mostly known for making fun of video games online would fare as an attempted novelist And it s pretty much what I d expected The quailty of the prose isn t anything to write home about and the first person narration is loaded with metaphors t...

    I ll start off by stating outright, I m a Yahtzee fan boy I find him hilarious and his Zero Punctuation has been a little gem in my week for years.I was totally surprised when I heard Yahtzee had a book being published and evenstunned when I heard it was good I d searched around whenever I was in a book store hoping to pick up his novel and add it to my ever growing list of books to read The long and the short is I eventually decided to order it as it was never available This Book wa I ll st

    This was probablylike 3.5, but it could have easily been a 5 if the author had either integrated the game aspects earlier andthoroughly, or left it out entirely, and made it a straight fantasy this would have been even better in opinion As it stood, the game elements were confusing, and pulled you away from the story as it progressed.Another downgrade, for me, was the ick factor The 3 main characters are risen dead, and as the story goes on, they start to fall apart andooze I This was probably
