Humour: 3 First off, what really struck me about this article is that it was way too random to be funny. It just diverts from one thing to the next, namedropping random names of games for what seems to be no reason, and doesn't build any jokes up well at all. I'll give you some credit in that the emphasis triggers a bit of a smirk, but in itself the text doesn't generate anything. It also comes across a just someone hating on the game, rather than trying to satirise it (at all). You need to be a lot more subtle in your approach of the article, as being rash generally isn't funny.
Concept: 2 This basically follows of on the randomness and satirical comments from above. Now, while I'm definitely not all that aquainted with this particular game, I think I can safely say there isn't really all that much you can twist about it. I personally think you can't do much with it, which makes it a bad concept for an article. Game articles are like bad articles; they're extremely hit and miss.
Prose and formatting: 5 It's OK text-wise, there are a few spelling and grammar mistakes in there, although these might have been on purpose, I'm not all that sure. What really irritates me here is all the bold; emphasis is good in moderation, but not for a third of the entire article. Formatting of images and what-not seems fine, although there is too much whitespace for my liking.
Images: 4 They're decent, I suppose, and related to the article, but they don't really instill much humour into the article. The captions seem tired, and rather hate-filled as I explained above. On a slightly related note, since this is the closest category: That Jesus-(dis)approves template needs to go. that kind of thing completely wrecks an article from a non-cliché point of view.
Miscellaneous: 3.5 n/a
Final Score: 17.5 I didn't like this much, and didn't think it was all that funny. This was mostly due to two things: the concept, and the randomness. I don't think this has the potential to be worth carrying on with, but you can if you so choose.
