Here we go, the second crossover.

Edit: Just watched. Good job Graham you pegged Yahtzee very well towards the end.

Excellent work Graham.

This was probably one of the best of the recent ZPs

I also like Yahtzee's shout out to you at the end
"People confused by Graham Stark's appearance at the start of this video clearly don't watch Unskippable, and for that I pity them"

Outstanding Graham, i could not have been happier to hear of a fusion of ZP and unskippable. Must have bloody hard to do!

Anybody else notice the C64 image midway through Yahtzee's portion of ZP?

Coincidence?

Well played, all.

I knew you would do well with this. I mean heck you can sing the elements song and the states song.

Though everyone else on The Escapist's comments hated it. They can go die in a fire.

Yeah, I don't put much stock in the people that post comments on the Escapist's videos...just look at how many people get banned every. single. week. for doing the "zomg it r teh awexome!!!!1!! FIRST LOLROFLLOL" less than a minute after the videos go up.

sorry Graham but I don't think you did a good job on this one, it was mediocre, better then the crap Yahtzee clones you see up on YouTube but still not that great, though it was fun to see you the whole thing play out. Would have been better if you guys bantered a bit more but oh well.

I'm going to respectfully disagree. Graham hopped in, and did a respectable send up of Yahtzee's review style. He's never done anything like it before, he han't had years of practice at it, and he's not an angry british fellow living in Australia. Graham's bit was interesting and funny, and everyone on the escapist's biggest complaint about it seems to be that Graham isn't Yahtzee.

Well, duh.

It's just a gag - but its unfair and unrealistic to expect Graham to come out of the gate on this and one up Yahtzee at his own game. For what it's worth, I though G did a fantastic job with it, and as I said to him last night, he's not Yahtzee, but anyone who doesn't enjoy his send up is just being a dink.

Perhaps more future crossovers? Yahtzee somehow appearing in a LRR video, Phailhaus ala Whatever Thing's Hyut! episode.

Awsome, I loved it. Graham has a lot of hate for that game, huh? I also liked the section with the imps. Very fun :)

This...Would be awesome. Although between Game Damage and opening a bar, would Yahtzee have the time/interest to do this?

Still, it would be cool if this happened.

I have to say, it was really strange hearing Graham do ZP, it's pretty different from his usual style. I've watched only one other ZP video in my life so I can't really judge, but I'll agree with Matt on this one. Twas well done. I didn't enjoy it as much as LRR and Unskippable, but that's just because it's not my type of thing.

I agree with Matt on this one. I enjoyed both collaborations this week on the Escapist between Yahtzee and Graham. In fact, I think that Graham did a better job at Yahtzee's shtick than Yahtzee did at Paul and Graham's. (Unskippable felt a little more rapid and angry this week with the addition of Yahtzee. Whereas, Graham does a great job in maintaining the energy and spirit of Zero Punctuation's game deconstruction.) Yahtzee also seems to think Graham did a good job, with not only a plug for Unskippable at the end of the video, but also is obviously referencing LRR with the C64 image. I'm all for being critical, but I think it's props all around for this week.

This week has definitely added three new videos to my list of favorites.

Nice job, Graham. Although I think it needs to be pointed out that your inclusion of using "air quotes" is in direct conflict with the Zero Punctuation family name.

Also, I was unaware that you could "ing" "cunt" (if you know what I mean *nudge nudge*).

The reason I found it mediocre was because yes he was not Yahtzee but he tried to do it to much like Yahtzee, I personally wanted to see a Graham style review with Yahtzee being a jerk about the whole thing in the background. Just a Graham flavored imitation while good, is not great. But yeah you're right that considering he just jumped right into it I have to agree that it was well done.
