Classic YouTube Comments #2

I’ve been half-clicking with this explore’em’up game off and on for a couple of months, yet still not done a 5MA on it. The unskippable intro/cutscene section features Dracula himself delivering the wonderful cod-Shakespearean rhetorical question and answer “What is a man? A miserable little pile of secrets.” Great stuff, if unskippable, grr!

The above linked video of the scene also features the following rather amusing comment for those raised on the Nineties:


What a piece of work is a man!

      Ha! Mostly the worst I reckon, but that contrast makes the gems shine all the brighter.

      Didn’t want to reply until I’d had a chance to watch the whole thing on a decent screen. Absolutely fascinating stuff, cheers! Even the basic facts about the PS1 video mode used were interesting to me (256 pixels wide, eh? Like a Spectrum?). He spends a lot of time on the details of the Saturn port, which were equally interesting if less personally visceral, but there’s a great last hurrah covering modern-ish versions. Didn’t realise I was missing my FMV on the 360 version, d’oh!

      Appreciate the linkage, you know yr audience sir!

        Yeah retro showed me it one night, the difference between how the two consoles delivered visuals is crazy no wonder developers are happy with the current crop of x86 clones.
