    First, thanks to @Gahars for showing this to me.

    The guys at RedLetterMedia (known for their Plinkett Reviews and Half in the Bag) have started doing a game review segment called "Gamestation 2.0". It features Rich Evans (he plays Plinkett in Half in the Bag) reviewing recent games with a nice dose of RedLetterMedia humor.

    These all have some language in them (as expected) so just a fair warning.

    Here's the first one (Arkham City)

    Here's the second one (Skyward Sword), on BlipTV

    They're all rather funny and the game reviews themselves are also pretty good.

    EDIT: I got the guy who played Captain America confused with Rich Evans. Wow.

    This may just be me but I find the humour really bland. The reviews are decent though...

    It's really oddball humor. Not everyone will like it. It's not as upfront funny as, say, Zero Punctuation, but some of the stuff really made me laugh.

    Game Station 2.0*

    Gamestation is the store, which I thought this thread was about.

    Edit: It's still not called 'Gamestation' though :

    Yeah that was good to watch, the comedy sketches weren't too long to divert from the actual game review.

    Meh, agreed with gifi. But good reviews though.

    I've enjoyed Red Letter Media's videos for a while now, and it's always nice to see them branch out into something new.

    Seriously, the insight and commentary they've provided for films with the Plinkett reviews and Half in the Bag brought to the realm of video games? Count me in.
