...99.9% of [IAB`s] submissions appear on Digg first. In fact, in recent months this has become an even more frequent. I can`t remember the last *good* IAB link that I didn`t see on Digg a few days before. It seems to me that Fancylad (IAB`s owner?) just uses Digg now to find good links.

Look, I`m an old-time IAB fan. I`ve been visiting this site for years. It used to have a ton of potential. But recently it has become nothing more than a pirate, an idiotic joke of a link-dump site. I`m hoping this will change. I`m hoping IAB will return to its former potential. But when all it can do is rip off material made by other sites, my hopes diminish.

Last thought. If it really is okay to "shar[e]... what people find great" by reposting another person`s work without permission and making money by doing so, then maybe I should start a site called "I Am Bored 2". I`ll simply repost whatever IAB posts. I`ll even make my site look the same, and I`ll outdo IAB by making my vid-rips decent in quality. I`m sure the IAB creator/owner (FancyLad?) will be fine with that because I`ll make sure to include a blurry little IAB URL at the beginning of any picture/video/article I rip off from them. That blurry link will generate *huge* traffic for IAB, I`m sure. Lol!

IAB used to be a lot better than this. Like many sites, it got greedy and stupid. The sad thing is that IAB could have been Digg if its owner(s?) hadn`t become such a douchebag(s?). And let`s see, which site makes more money: IAB or Digg? Hmmm...!

IAB is like the RIAA. It`s greedy but some of its content is good.

99.9% of their submissions show up on Digg fir

KoalaMeatPie: "Just about every video can be traced back to it`s orignal source material, Like with this ZP Video, embeded inside is the website."

Koala, you obviously don`t understand what generates revenue for a site. Sites like the Escapist (and IAB, btw) get money through *advertising*. And they make more money through advertising when they get more web-traffic. When a site like IAB rips another site`s content (i.e. you`re watching another site`s content in IAB`s pooty little flash player, next to a huge advertisement that only makes money for IAB) you`re not helping the content`s producer make money. You`re only helping IAB. And that`s bullpoo.

If IAB went to the Escapist and asked permission to do this, that would be fine (if permission was given). If IAB used an embed code (some sites provide this) that would be fine. But ripping and reposting is total poo. It`s stealing, it`s wrong, and it`s pathetic (and it`s why Digg is so much better).

"This is the most annoying, worst, and LEAST ACCURATE review of any game I`ve ever seen! Nintendo haters are some of the lowest quality human beings in existence." And personally I think Nintendo fan boys can shove that kinda crap up their arse til it bleeds. If your balls have dropped, don`t buy a nintendo.

also, im under the impression that anyone who hates Wii or Nintendo is just an elitist PS/Xbox fan. just because Mario Galaxy doesn`t involve realistic war combat does NOT mean its a bad game. just because the Zelda games are suitable for children does not make them immature.

I agree though, fighting games aren`t my forte, but SSBB is utter crap.

jmk4422 - you obviously don`T understand how IAB works.

Just about every video can be traced back to it`s orignal source material, Like with this ZP Video, embeded inside is the website.

Those that are new and interested in the material can follow up and discover new things.

It`s a giant sharing side of what people find great, getting others intrested in it.

Otherwise, if it`s a news article or just a stand alone thing, such as the Gregorian UAV, it does not need a host, it`s fact, sharing intresting news, not a Click of fad.


IAB is a dump site, get used to it or shut up and get out.

Now this is a great example of what`s wrong with IAB. Ripping this video from Escapist is incredibly popular, and the creator of Zero Punctuation is on record saying how much such rips hurt him financially. We`re not talking about a big corporation here, or some random network-TV clip (where fair usage might apply). We`re talking about a smalltime guy getting screwed because sites like IAB feel it`s their right to rip-off another person`s work for their own site`s gain.

Stop it, IAB. Provide links to the original material; embed using their code if provided, etc. But STOP ripping other people`s work to show it here using your crappy, low-quality flash player.

I won`t touch a ps3 but I do own an xbox 360 elite. I can understand the unknown source of hatred for a console. I seem to have it for the ps3 & possibly the wii.

Ben "Yahtzee" is the man to go to every time a great game comes out.

The only games he has ever said were good are Portal and COD4. Which is true, but arguments from other games he has critisized, apply to COD4 (such as WTF happened to health meters?).

I don`t know why this is here...he has better reviews than the SSBB one.

I bought a Wii just so I could play all the old N64 games again. Then I found out all the old N64 games are not avalible to download. I effing hate Nintendo!

Zelda is pretty awesome though..

God damn, after listening to him my brain was still going fast, came to read the comments and read them as fast as I could without even realizing it >_<;;;! But yeah, my friend is "That guy" who lives for this game, then invites everyone else to play and kills everyone. He bitches when we try to play something else, but we do anyway. cod4 ftw.

This vid was pretty entertaining, though I can`t disagree more with what he said about how any buttonmasher can win. SSBB is set up so anyone can play and win and have fun if you have items on and cranked, but without items, it`s very much skill-based.

I have a Wii and Xbox. Console bias doesnt make sense to me. Wii sucks right now, though. Been tempted to pawn it off for more Xbox games.

i think that most people look at smash bros as a button masher, but no it`s got tons of strategy to it, witch is why you`d have to actually play it for a bit before you decide weather or not you like it

This game was created for Drunken Wii, which is like Wii, except the games are fun and challenging instead of lame, challenging, and for preteens.

Geez. I had JUST seen this two hours ago on The Escapist. You guys might as well post the link to Zero Punctuation.

Which is absolutely hilarious, so go visit it and watch all Yahtzee`s vids. You don`t know what you`re missing if you don`t.

I do agree with a lot of this vid. However, not to be a Brawl fanboy (unlike the hundreds of immature twelve-year-olds who lurk on this site or lie about their age to make an account; YOU KNOW WHO YOU ARE), but I would like to point out that this vid was made in the perspective of someone who is generally against the concept of multiplayer games and is new to the Smash Bros. scene.

I really enjoy the game, and think it`s awesome, but that doesn`t stop me from agreeing wholeheartedly with the bulk of this review. Hats off to Yahtzee for going against the flood of rabid "W00T FIEV STARZZZ!!1" reviews that other poeple are so keen to dish out in order to keep their rep intact.

I love Brawl. I love Zero Punctuation.
All is right.

He liked pointing out he didnt like other ppl and a lot of murdering.
I dont like the guy, he seems to try to hard in keeping his image of hating everyone. That in turn makes me hate him so much more than he hates me.
