-->* I think conservatives in America have been HoistByTheirOwnPetard. They just kept knocking down any chance of gun legislation and effectively forced America to accept that a massacre is something it's just gonna have to put up with now and again. And then they wonder why no one seems to care about taking revenge for 9/11 anymore!

* His ''VideoGame/{{Wolfenstein}}'' review, done entirely in limerick form. ** And later, in his review of WolfensteinTheNewOrder, he genuinely appreciated how much the game was a SurprisinglyImprovedSequel to the last game, especially with how he praises all the characters - compared to the 2009 Wolfenstein, where he openly said [[EightDeadlyWords he didn't care what'll happen to the characters]], he pretty much says ALL of the characters in ''The New Order'' were complex characters with all sorts of development, from [[LoveToHate how the Nazis were absolute monsters that the player is WELL motivated to take down]], to even how [[TheHero B.J. Blazkowicz]] was a TragicHero [[IronWoobie constantly on a hairpin's edge from plummeting down a]] DespairEventHorizon... And then, even though he did the limerick for the last game because it was just too boring to review the standard way, [[CallBack he concludes this review with one last little ditty]]:

-->I think it's safe to say that all bets were right the fuck off when it came to ''The Phantom Pain''. Even more than they usually are with Creator/HideoKojima [...] Because of course Konami recently decided that they're going to take everything they've built over the years as a game developer, arrange it nicely in front of them, and then pick up a big hammer and smash and smash and smash and smash and smash! "Sorry we had to cancel ''Videogame/SilentHills,'' but we kind of lost our interest in it around the same time we lost our ''FUCKING MINDS!!!'' Here, have a pachinko machine instead! We like pachinko machines, because it's nice to have something around with some fucking balls! Also, fuck off, Creator/HideoKojima, you're too reliably bankable for our liking! We'd much rather stick our feet up our arse and bounce down the stairs making burbling noises with our lips!"

* His ''[[http://www.escapistmagazine.com/articles/view/columns/extra-punctuation/7473-Extra-Punctuation-Videogames-as-Art Extra Punctuation]]'' on RogerEbert's claims of the validity of video games as artwork, in which he gives a respectful, rational and highly intelligent breakdown of the argument that proves to be one of the most sober and thoughtful takes of the issue found anywhere on the internet. Doubles as a PetTheDog moment.

* The veritable conga-line of political TakeThat's from the Enemy Front & VideoGame/ValiantHearts opening sequence: -->* The days of straight-faced, ripped-from-the-headlines, right-wing wish-fulfillment giving Johnny Terrorist what-for in the dusty ruins of Suicide Bomber University are waning, maybe because the house of cards that is stability in the Middle East just refuses to stay up no matter how many times we ''set fire to it''. -->* Or perhaps there's a growing sense that our personal safety is less at risk from jabbering extremists inspired by 72 virgins and more from frustrated white loners inspired by one virgin, namely ''himself''. -->* I think conservatives in America have been HoistByTheirOwnPetard. They just kept knocking down any chance of gun legislation and effectively forced America to accept that a massacre is something it's just gonna have to put up with now and again. And then they wonder why no one seems to care about taking revenge for 9/11 anymore!

Added DiffLines:
* Yahtzee calling out Nintendo for not including a gay relationship option in TomodachiLife: -->Tomodachi Life encourages you to populate it with the Miis of real life friends and family, and to disallow same sex relationships it tacitly denies that they exist in reality, or at least assume that no gay person or friend of a gay person could possibly be playing it, [[SarcasmMode because they're all off playing their special gay games for gay people that come in pink boxes adorned with chest hair]].
