    The other two guys were just terrible, especially the one on the right. Yahtzee was hillarious, but he needs some facial expression for it to work on TV.

    meh.. I didn't think he was anywhere near as entertaining as he is on the web reviews...

    Maybe trying too hard to be Topgear for Gamers

    Those guys do a podcast for Australian Gamer. Yahtzee is in a lot of the recent ones, he lives with one of the guys that runs it in Brisbane or something.

    Looking forward to it.

    they'll get picked up in no time, especially considering yahtzee's popularity and the fact that it's a top gear clone of gaming. I thought yahtzee was trying a bit too hard. The guy in the middle was alright and the guy on the right just needs a bit more experience.

    I had to laugh at the Master Chief skit. Especially the bit when he was eating potato chips and just took a mouthful and shoved it against the helmet.

    not bad. yahtzee was funny, other two guys sucked.

    other than that, they need to stop talking over eachother as it's highly annoying to the viewer.

    'BeardyMcBeard', good one.

    Yahtzee has the humour, but needs more animation and expression.

    Yahtzee wasn't quite up to his usual level, but I guess he had to work off the other two. Sure does have potential, though the recurring skit things were a bit lame.

    It's like a phone sex worker. When you hear the voice it's all fine but when you see them actually doing it in person it's very uninspiring. With just words it works. Sometimes less is more.

    Yes, I'm comparing Yahtzee's reviews to phone sex. It's the only analogy that comes to mind.

    Skits are 100% not funny, show could do without it.

    When they just sit there and talk about games and rant, that's much more entertaining and more what gaming is about. Something i can relate too.

    Yahtzee is one of the funniest people i have ever seen :)

    This. The reviews are great but I just wasn't feeling it in the video. Although I've become a bit sick of his reviews too, and only watch the new ones every now and then rather than watching them the day they're upped.

    I actually quite liked it. It's clearly got room to grow into something quite good. Pretty polished for a pilot.

    Yes you might aswell call it Yatazee and the two other guys

    Three people doesnt work. You basically need to stick to two person format or two people are only allowed to be on the same camera

    You can still have 3 people. But you just balance the roles between each other, Quite similar to what top gear does for it's show

    The fat guy is fat and not suited to be on any form of video feed.

    Yahtzee is funnier in his skits, they keep talking over eachother and I dont think they gave a single game a good review in the entire show? and the glasses guy looks like he has greasy skin.

    I really hope Yahtzee doesn't dress like that in real life, jesus christ.
    Also, anyone that wears a fedora needs to be punched, psychosmiley included.

    oh also it doesn't even seem like they like eachother, the thing that makes topgear great is the chemistry between the presenters.

    He does. He was at the eGames expo and he was wearing a leather jacket and said fedora. And yes, I have a fedora, but I don't have it grafted to my skull. It's a quality hat, though for summer I need something along the lines of a panama hat...

    Can't say I liked the pilot, I didn't really like any of the hosts. Skits weren't funny either in my opinion.
