@shaanyboi Very well said; thanks for posting. Dovetails nicely with what Jeff said on the Bombcast about the site maintainer being derelict in his responsibility to the community, not the other way around.

Just saw Vinny's tweet about this and tried it out myself. This is awesome. I'm gonna keep practicing so I have this down for the next game that comes along with such a puzzle. (Also like your final note there.)

    The actor who's voicing the detective here seems to be the same actor who voiced the detective in Lucius II, which instantly sends the video to a very strange place for me.

    Re: Phenomena: I can't recall which edition it was (probably the First Fear PS rerelease or maybe the Wonderswan version), but one version of Clock Tower came with a survey card that would enter you in a drawing to win a VHS copy of Phenomena. (Also, the antagonist in Phenomena uses a spear to kill ,and one version of the first stage to the Playstation sequel to Clock Tower can bring you across a body impaled by a weapon that looks very similar to that spear.)

    (Also: re: Exorcist III: That hallway scene is so excellent. I'll put in a word for the uncut version of it, which does a terrific job of building tension, though the version usually linked might be better if you're just looking for the money shot. Exorcist III in general is actually worth a watch, if you've been scared away from Exorcist sequels by...well, every other Exorcist sequel. It doesn't follow tonally from the original Exorcist at all (which, despite all the pea-soup stuff etc., contains a great deal of quiet material about Karras losing his faith); it's better viewed as a gonzo "What If?" than a True Sequel. It has some really terrific horror moments, though, and isn't a bad story overall. Plus, it has this dream sequence set in heaven with a couple "WHAT???" cameos that are hilarious in retrospect - though really not out of place overall, since the whole thing's meant to be hallucinatory.)

    I haven't read all the comments yet, but before the thread gets locked, I just wanted to thank Jeff and the others for this straightforward take on the issue. I appreciate your support for those being targeted and for gaming being a place where everyone feels comfortable.
