I love this guy. Great stuff, he should write for IGN. I have no idea why, but I spend chuncks of my day reading crazy Amazon user reviews. Anybody else amused by this kind of stuff? :)

I personally prefer the angry comments on four year old anonymous reviews. Those are hilarious.

My favorite reviews are of the police and airport checkpoint toys, from Playskool.

judging by the first 2 games, i was going to say it looks like you found flores's alt. but he gave Halo 4 5 stars. no way in hell that was flores.

unless he did it to throw us off the trail...

Isn't this the same person that wrote a really bad and racist review and posted it here last week or earlier this week?

I think this is the guy who started a thread saying JRPG's will cease to exist and he was throwing in the towel when it came to console gaming.

My favorite was :

"Graphics are insane(Ever play Crysis 2 on the PC with ubersampling enabled?That is pretty much what this game is capable of.)

60 FPS-There a few times where im sure the game jumped to 70FPS but I can't be too sure of this one yet more testing is needed."

What the heck is ubersampling? And I am guessing Halo 4 in fact never jumps to 70 fps. I love this guy, I hope he starts posting here more often. Who doesn't love a good laugh. Happy holidays. :)

Have you read this person's review about Link to the Past? I think it's great

In reply to an earlier post on Nov 30, 2012, 5:59:04 AM PST
LOL, very nice. I need to find that Pikmin review over at Gamestop, the guy complained about gardening games being stupid. Thanks for the link. :)

I have to say that reviews for binders got a whole lot better after this election season.

5.0 out of 5 stars It's like Alex Rodriguez Actually Took Even More Steroids-That's How Jacked This Game Is!, April 1, 2014
Gilby Mitnick III Jr. (Mom's Basement) - See all my reviews
This review is from: MLB 14: The Show (Video Game)
Eses, if you really want to feel what it's like to be so full of roids that you're basically depressing your PS3 buttons right through the body of the controller, then play MLB 14, homes! You've never felt so powerfully jacked with any other baseball simulator before-I guarantee it, miha. Eat yer heart out A-Rod.

Even the Big Show can't compete with MLB 14: The Show because it's that breathtaking. Get this: You can actually press down the X button, and your Alex Rodriguez character will take a swing...on the batting circle!! Effin realistic, ese!! Press down the circle button, and A-Rod will actually, get this, smack the behind of another MLB player in order to "congratulate" him for chewing tobacco and spitting it on the astro turf. So darn breathtaking, miha! If you want to feel what it's like to cork your bat and bet on baseball, then play MBL 14 today, homes.

It's not every day that a game as exceptionally so-so as this rolls along, ese, so buy this game from Amazon immediately. Yes, the Obama administration may have totally failed to reach the six million mark for legitimate Obamacare sign-ups (because hardly anyone who signed up actually paid the required premiums), but who cares? You should only care about A-Rod and roids, miha!

Those are all pretty good. There is a subset of reviewers that only do joke reviews, or at least dabble in them. Even George Takei can be counted as part of that group, lol.

The best ones only review fake products so as to not impact the actual ratings at all.

For example:

Zenith Men's 96.0529.4035/51.M Defy Xtreme Tourbillon Titanium Chronograph Watch

And the first one review is a ton of spoilers for TLoU. AWESOME.

Condom reviews always produce a giggle.

A few years ago, Playmobil had security and police checkpoint toys. Those reviews were off the charts.

This toy would be a lot more realistic with about 350 people standing in line for an average of an hour. It still makes a nice set with the interrogation room.
