One question - can you chainsaw people in the face? That'd be cool

Grammar and spelling correction are two of the other signs of being a pompous asshole.

Anyway. It's a very fun game. And co-op is awesome. Not awesome enough where I'd want to play with Asher, but still pretty awesome.

"children laugh at you at your pink shirt when you go and get your mail"

"Let's just move on before this review finds it self labeled exhibit A"

"I hate this review and I know you do to."

"the storyline never quit gets fleshed out"

I ignored the grammar mistakes, i'm lazy, i know.

Did you mean it should be

"children laugh at you at your pink shirt when you go and get your male"?

Maybe I'll fix some of those things later. Not the male thing though. KG's gayness has no place in the review.

Great review, it was a bit too 'Venom' at times. The link between giggling and wanking was too strained!

This review started strong, but kind of lost energy later. Like Venom trying to chase after an ice cream van.

That is a good family oriented review.

But only if you are part of the manson family.

edit: It helps if you spell the guy's name right.

I loved this review.

You might even say I loved it like a fat kid loves ice cream.

Actually, I think for a Resident Evil game there was a special edition controller shaped like a chainsaw.

That's a bit of a con... I guess you could use the Wii controller like a chainsaw.

Yeah you can't acutally use it like a chainsaw.

I think I already made a joke somewhere, sometime about a Lumberjack game for the Wii really tapping in to the lesbian gaming market.

Hehe, good review. I chuckled.

Still won't buy the game, though.
