Wow. That's... special. At least they're instantly recognizable. It's amusing how they keep putting their "suckers" back in their mouths between questions. XD

My God.  It's almost as bad as Gabriel Knight 2.

You say that now but did that video include this?

I'll take a FMV werewolf over that any day.

Are you kidding? The head explosion is the best part of the game! Or at least, it elicits the best reaction from people.

I'm pretty sure Lamb just said that to be contrary, since Gabriel Knight 2 is Cesar's favorite computer game.

Also, words of wisdom from Mike Dawson:

"I'd better not touch this crate. I might get a splinter, or a spider bite."

"Fine! Just walk away! I hope the Boogeyman gets you!"

"This clown doesn't look very funny..."

He gets a few more zingers later on.

Be aware that the longplayer is woefully inept at the game and the videos really drag on for a long time while he putzes around. Of course, this could be another source of humor...

I do know, that in all honesty, Lamb does not like Gabriel Knight 2.  He is being honest about that!

Do you mean me or Lamb?  I think Lambo expressed himself quite graphically!

I loved GK1, and while it took a bit, GK2 grew on me as well. GK3... eh, the plot didn't seem to really start until the murders of the Prince's men. I wouldn't call it awful, but it certainly wasn't as good as the first one.

Now Ultima IX: Ascension on the other hand...

What if I told you Ultima IX: Ascencion is actually not that bad a game? :P

Sorry - I misread. I should have known - that sounds much more like something that Lamb would say than something you would say. :P

GK1 looks and feels great, and the talent (or whatever you attribute to Tim Curry) of the actors shines through.

GK2 had some solid writing which saves it for me, but ughhhhh those werewolves, how am I supposed to take those seriously?

GK3 fails in basically every way, even Tim Curry isn't chewing scenery with his typical enthusiasm.

I think we can all agree that they should have given Tim Curry a role more similar to this one:

Gabriel Knight 2 is the gameplay equivalent of individually plucking every single hair on one's entire body.
