This game is adorable, but it's full of traditional Adventure Game Bullshit. Also, shout out to Gextra Life.

the frights are never over

i'm so glad this transitioned into a "vinny surfs the internet" segment and then a "booting up an unrelated game" segment all in one video

I know this isn't Dan's thing, but a little more effort would go a long way. Maybe it's just me, but when someone in the video is so completely checked out, it really sours the mood of the whole thing.

Gutted they didn't try to check out the classic Space Jam site while they were mucking about in the browser. I do love, however, how quickly Jeff was sucked into the awesomocity of Total Distortion.

The original Universal Monsters films are fantastic in my opinion. The fact they do so much without having things to "go off of" amazes me even now.

@spunkyhepanda YUP! In the history of Giant Bomb I've found that when one or two people nearly refuse to try it makes the video worse. I feel this wasn't really a thing at Giant Bomb until...3-4 years ago. Seems like it has happened several times in the last few years...wonder why...

@ilserpente: didn’t Abby actually say she thought it was extremely boring?

I said this in the chat at the time but a video example of Citizen Kane is how GTA3 was this groundbreaking shift from GTA2 but by today’s standards it’s nothing special.

@nthnmllr: In FILM school. Subject matter aside, it is a very significant movie on a technical and production level.

Yes, which is why I said I disagree with her, and Citizen Kane is dope.

This game is actually pretty good. It's well produced and I completed it as a child without a guide. The puzzles aren't that illogical, you usually just spent a bit more time poking around. I also don't remember the look being *that* bad. Maybe something with new mouse compatibility? I'd love to see the team come back and have another shake at this if they could figure out what was going on there. Steven Spielberg helped make it. It has to be good, right?

@nthnmllr: film school, dawg. I only took two film classes in college and had to watch it in both. Film majors basically watch the same 10 movies over and over again.

Anyone that has worked in retail can relate to Clerks in some way. Clerks is great.

Man, my my family had a Gateway, and windows sound recorder with the provided mic and roller coaster tycoon were the two most amazing things on the planet as a kid.

Abby's squint looked like she was trying to hold in a fart for a lot of the stream so I pretended that was the case and it made me laugh.

Also, I'm team Dan when it comes to Kevin Smith movies being lame and obnoxious levels of quirk.

These unrelated comments out of the way, I really likes this one, more Jeff in vids!

Did anybody play the Are You Afraid of the Dark FMV game (The Tale of Orpheo's Curse)? I had it and really enjoyed it. It was pretty creepy in parts as I recall. I beat it as a kid, so it's probably not TOO hard. I just did a quick Google search and found a walkthrough that I don't think has anybody talking over it: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OhV6edawinU.

Great idea to upscale everything, thanks Jeff.

Another fun playdate of a...rather bad game.
