    Technically, you were making fun of magic FROM Asia, not while you yourself was in Asia making fun of magic.

      . . .

      Also, the final boss’s first form is Kabuki Quantum Fighter?

      I studied abroad in Japan back in 2008. Should have totally made fun of magic while I was over there, just to stick it to the man. Don’t tell ME I can’t make fun of something, damn it!

  • saibot216

    I kept trying to turn up the brightness on my computer, but as it turns out the game is just dark as hell.

  • M_Appel

    Well, I suppose hiding guns and ammo in the bathroom is still a lot more reasonable than hiding them in the kitchen oven like some amaricans like to do it :P

  • Dkm

    Soo where and when is that last part(s) of Deadly Premonition ?? :D

          “Somebody else” is usually required when you engage in fucking.

            Not true, one can always go and fuck him / herself.

            But wouldn’t that create a time paradox?

          • http://twitter.com/CthuluSpy Herbert West

            Not if one clones himself. Then one can fuck himself in the present.

        • thehivemind33

          Ah, but if it’s the “somebody else” I’m thinking of, then I’m fine with it.
          http://www.youtube.com/user/supergreatfriend/
          Allow me to introduce you to Supergreatfriend. I found him via Spoony’s first Deadly Premonition video in fact, someone linked to him.
          Trust me, he’s a great LPer and definitely worth a sub. I’d have loved to watch Spoony play the game, but SGF playing it was just as good!

    Maybe the dark interior rooms really were fully illuminated, and you couldn’t tell because of the damned glasses. Either that, or the flashlight drained the batteries so fast because it was an extremely high powered bulb–but again, with the giant sunglasses it does crap for you.

  • http://twitter.com/Mattaphysics M. Chastain Bowers

    Seriously? What the fuck does this game have to do with that Ring movie? The game feels more like Enter the Matrix and Silent Hill 4: The Room had a rape baby.

    • http://www.facebook.com/orinbishop Orin Bishop

      Didn’t you hear? Legitimate rape prevents pregnancy.

    • Daniel McGregor

      Japan. Nuff said. ;)

    • Gabe Leibowitz

      The Virtual world Matrix stuff is from the original Japanese books that The Ring is based on, according to my friend who read them. I’m willing to guess that if that was taken a lot of other things were too.

      • http://stephunee.tumblr.com/ Stephanie

        You’re right, I’ve read the books and in the final book, it’s revealed that the events that took place in books 1 & 2 were actually the effects of a computer virus (the “Ring” virus) on a virtual reality program. However, the real world is not some desert wasteland, it’s basically identical to the virtual world because the whole point of the virtual world was to examine life, they wanted to see if life would evolve the same way it did in reality or something like that.

        It was interesting and kind of mind-blowing in the book, this game just made it so…awful… Honestly, other than the idea that the world we thought was real was actually a computer program, it doesn’t seem like the game took much else from the books.

  • http://sbkmulletman.deviantart.com/ sbkMulletMan

    Oh man, this one was a mind-trip! I friggin’ lost it in laughter at the return of the magician. And the whole “reloading/healing during the pause menu” thing is something that’s bothered me, even in some of my favorite games like Silent Hill. It’s good to see it so wonderfully parodied here.

    Man, this game and its developers clearly just didn’t give a shit about the quality of the final product. I’m surprised I didn’t see the EA logo pop up at any point. And speaking of loss of quality, looks like the dreaded Final Fantasy 13 is on its way. Whoah boy.

    And on a side note, I was wondering when those Sci-Fi channel sequels to Pumpkinhead were going to catch up to Spoony, heh heh.

    • doresh

      That pause menu anomaly is weird, but games that try to be realistic by having you search through your menu in real-time tend to get very annoying very quit, so I dunno how to fix that XD

  • C.B.

    Curses, Spoony! Your meddling with alternate realities has doomed your other self to the horror of FF13!

  • http://www.facebook.com/people/Mitchell-Bandes/100001750373297 Mitchell Bandes

    Wait, so this review was an excuse to jump into an alternate continuity where Spoony was previously unaware of the existence of FFXIII?

  • http://www.facebook.com/ChusterMerino Chuster M. Merino

    That fight sketch… pure Spoony-ness!

  • Lockgar

    O god, the Spoony Experiment. It is finally ending! All those plot holes, where simulation glitches. The Guardian…. He wasn’t a demon, he was a guard program. All of the costume look a-likes, they where restrictions on the programs memory so it was just a re-skin spoony model. The armageddon spell… END PROGRAM…. return 0;

    It all starting to fit together!

    You bastard.

    • http://www.facebook.com/people/Stephen-Martin/1596700226 Stephen Martin

      Oh great. Exactly what we need. Another origin story for Dr. Insano.

  • PeaTearGryfin

    The scariest part of this game is that as soon as the video ended, my phone rang. Kinda sad to see that Spoony still can’t get Beyond Thunderdome

    • Lockgar

      Well he is quite mad to the max.

      • http://twitter.com/KaijuZ Emil Petrunov

        Makes you want hack through your ankle in five minutes. Doesn’t it?

  • corey

    I know I made this point before but what I am surprised you didn’t say anything about the fact that the healing items in games like resident evil such as herbs, and sprays can fix any kind of injury there considering you often impaled or chewed up by monsters its funny that those can be fixed up by characters just slapping herbs on themselves.

    • doresh

      Don’t forget that all those healing items also seem to work as antidotes for all the nasty viruses the monsters tend to carry around. Makes you wonder why Racoon City had so many zombie problems.

    Burton, no! It’s too much! You’re scrambling his brain! He’s forgetting what they did to final Fantasy!

    I’m just soooooo glad Spoony didn’t play Willow Smiths “Whip my hair” in the final bossfight with Sadaco

    It’s probably been mentionned already, but her goofy grin, slow movement and complete acceptance over whatever weird shit is going on? Meg’s clearly stoned off her ass for the whole game.

    The Simco(or however you spell the magician names) part and the E3 scene were hilarious, great video.

  • magnusk_98

    This was pretty damn great and I love how Spoony already is preparing the audience for the FF-13 review. Production values also seemed very high for that final sequence.

    Damn, but I miss Miles. It was great seeing him again even in the Headless costume. I hope Spoony and him do some vlogs again soon, there are a lot of movies they could talk about together.

      I dunno, I’d like to see him do a review of House of the Dead, the written review is awesome, and voices could make it so much better.

  • alaterale

    Awesome! :) Yeah you do go through a lot of bathrooms in the game heheh. When you do restore power you have to go around and flick on all the switches, such a pain in the butt x.x The flashlight really is so useless in this game.

    I couldn’t believe how stupid that second to last boss was. I was just trying to dodge around and find a good starting point for the battle when I decided to try getting a few shots through the shelf thingy. Can’t believe they programmed such horrible AI for that boss hah

  • http://www.facebook.com/people/Steven-Black/100000380573698 Steven Black

    Oh God Faria flashbacks. Faria isn’t too bad a game as an NES Zelda clone goes, but it was one of the worst ones with the batteries for your flashlights always going out and you wandering around a cave structure longer than the one in Zelda II at the end, in the dark.

    The scariest thing in this game is that damn rictus grin on Meg’s face. She’s always smiling, no matter what. It makes her look of shock when Evil Guy transforms seem like an O-Face.

        Warrior Poet and False God of the Dunmer, from Elder Scrolls III Morrowind.I remember killing him, trapping his soul in Azuras Star, and binding him to my Daedric Dai-Katana. Also his thirty-six lessons are definitely an engaging read. The ending of the words is ALMSIVI

        thanks guys for the info. I never got into Elder Scroll; those type of game never interested me. Like Fallout.

      Hooray Morrowind reference!

  • http://dumdoi.com/klarden/ Kain Klarden

    Actually the moment with Sadako’s mother paranormal abilities test was from the movie.
    Also, the entire concept of virtual reality and stuff is what the Ring novels turned out to be, enevtually. So it’s kinda canon to the novels. And the first japanese sequel Spiral. Fortunatelly, most people realised how stupid that sci-fi-ish horror was and later made a supernatural Ring 2, which was much better (even though still had pretty silly ending).
    Oh, and while you said you like the tape on the US Ring version more in the Sinister review video, i think japanese version with people crawling backwards on the volcano was a bit more disturbing. Also the guy pointing somewhere with a blanket on his head? That’s just so… wrong and creepy.

  • Atmos_Duality

    Random thoughts, part 2:

    Dammit! So they WERE breeding furries in the Dark World!
    A world filled with….bathrooms apparently. Good effort, but all the toilets in the universe can’t handle the load of shittiness this game has to offer.

    Wait…so Sadako created the Matrix? Makes sense. I’d try to escape from furville at all costs too.

    Meg’s facial expressions are priceless.
    She looks legitimately shit-slathering kookoo. Especially when the chief mutates into…whatever the fuck that’s supposed to be (hairless furry is my guess, based on the rest of the game)

    WHAT THE FUCK DOES THIS HAVE TO DO WITH RINGU??!!

    • doresh

      I think they were sorta inspired by the later sequels of the original Ring novel Oo

      • Atmos_Duality

        Either this game does an extremely poor job adapting those novels or they must really, really suck.

        • doresh

          I think it’s a little bit of both, seeing how the Ring movie sequels (be it Japanese or American) have pretty much nothing to do with the book’s sequels.

          It’s not Spoony. It’s just some kid trying to get attention, or get Spoony distanced from TGWTG by using his name. Watch the video he links. He says the same exact things in it that he tweets. Also, whoever it is that’s tweeting has a lot of trouble with spelling…

  • http://twitter.com/UndeadKusabi Cody Klein

    Jesus Christ this game is fucking awful!!! The animations are bad, the story is fucking awful and the only reason I stuck through it is because it was Spoony doing the videos- also, the conclusion to the Spoony Experiment arc. If it wasn’t for Spoony doing this, I would have went and watch goddamn paint dry and that is no hyperbole… I would have literally painted my room and watched it dry in a stupor of boredom and insanity.

    Now onto the dick-shit known as Final Fantasy 13 >_>

    So “Final Fantasy XIII” is up next, finally? Honestly I can’t wait because, as strange as it may sound.. I actually liked the game. Granted, it has flaws.. lots of flaws*, but I found it to be an overall enjoyable experience and the story actually kept me engaged… which is why I can’t wait to see Spoony rip it a new one.

    It’s always more fun to see these kind of reviews on stuff I like, such as Nostalgia Critic with “Independence Day” and Linkara with “Transformers: Generation 2.”

    * (The over use of cutscenes kept reminding me of a line from “Monty Python and the Holy Grail” — “Get on with it!”)

    • http://www.facebook.com/nasser.elusta Nasser Elusta

      I was expecting the next game review to be FF 13 right after he confirmed it at the end of his Ultima series. Beside that, I can’t wait for FF 13. I hope it is more than 3 parts and a mix between his FF X-2 review and FF 8 review.

      • LightningFarron19

        Well, it might be the other way around. FF13-2′s story made no sense whatsoever. It was all over the place. FF13′s story was more followable and we know that Spoony likes it when a story is more followable. Light-heartedness has nothing to do with Spoony’s decision for like FF10-2. It was the way the creator tried to tell the story differently that Spoony respected.

        • http://twitter.com/Karifean FME

          Too bad Spoony hates the way FF XIII told its story, going so far as to call it the worst way you can tell a story.

          • LightningFarron19

            Personally, I would not say the worst way to tell a story. Try looking up Naruto (or even Bleach) some time and you will be more than convinced that there are worst ways to tell a story than FF XIII.

          • http://www.facebook.com/nasser.elusta Nasser Elusta

            I never played FF13 and the only FF game I played is FF1 on the psp. Is the story telling really as linear as the internet says it to be. Also I may never play it, not for the reputation, but for the gameplay. It intimitades me somehow.

    Wow. Just…fucking…wow. Spoony is so lazy and so against making new content that he broke a single review into two parts without even HIDING the fact that there was just supposed to be a commercial break instead of FOUR DAYS OF SPACE between them, just so he could produce less overall content and stretch out the time needed to put out a new review? Fuck you, Spoony.

      It’s not even a new thing that a 40 minute review is splitted in two.
      It sucks when there is a delay, but chill out man.

    Well that was lame and not funny. And completely undeserving of two separate parts. Seriously part 2 is like 17 minutes long. Why’d you even bother? I mean it’s not like you could cut the whole dalad jelly rant. Cause I mean that was just comedy gold.

    So next your doing FFXIII huh? And how many parts you gonna stretch that one out to? Fifteen? Think you could try to make at least 10 minutes of them funny? Or you just gonna nitpick the whole time while recycling gags that were only mildly funny when you first did them.

    (Sigh) This sounds harsh. I love your stuff man, I really do, and I hope you can get back to better stuff soon, but man was this one a yawner.

    Do I sense the return of… theblaghoe ?

    That would probably be the doctor’s friend’s brain from Raisen. I can’t believe I’m kinda remembering this… but as a reward for helping Sadako reincarnate herself she reincarnated the doctor’s son, and gave his friend immortality or something.

    Still can’t stand her CONSTANTLY SMILING face. Her smile is more sinister than Heath Ledger’s, and more inappropriate than something… inappropriate…

    I thought about it. The ending reminds me a lot of the tricks they pulled in dot.hack with a lot of white noise and screen shifting (which is also Matrix as well of course). In dot.hack it was symbolic of The World falling apart, and in a way FFXIII is like that (in that it makes the world of Final Fantasy fall apart with its linearity). But it does raise a lot of questions. Like maybe its time kompression and a great chance of Dr. Insano showing up sometime in the FFXIII review to try and fix it.

    I’m a bit curious as to whether he’s going to review XIII-2 on top of the first game. Probably yes, since he also did X-2, another direct sequel he liked better than the original.

    …At least, I assume he likes XIII-2 better than the original. It’s got the same sort of lighthearted, mildly self-aware tone as X-2, plus Tri-Ace helped develop it so Squenix couldn’t completely fuck it up.

    A really great Mr. Magician reference.

    There actually are jump scares in this game. The monsters in the bathroom stalls, those are supposed to be jump scares. That really is the developers trying to surprise and scare people. I know, I know, try to contain your excitement.

I’m not even sure if I died more than once when playing the ring as above.

      Plus The Ring has a such laughably bad translation that it adds some necessary humor to its blandness :p

  • http://www.facebook.com/edward.h.boff Edward H. Boff

    The only way this confused mess of a game makes any sense is that it’s not actually based on the films. From what is seen here, it looks like it takes its cues from the Koji Suzuki book series, which went in bizarre directions like this! You had the first book, which was a sort of ghost story, but with a load of sci-fi bullshit thrown in, then the second one went “no, it wasn’t a ghost, it was a DNA altering virus all along!”, then the third went “hah, you thought it was a ghost making a DNA virus, well actually it was all a computer simulation! What a Twist!”. Yeah, leaving this stuff out was the Ring movies’ startest moves.

    FFXIII Review NOW!!!!

  • LightningFarron19

    Well back then, japanese games had bad translations when it came to the english version. Even FF7 has some translation errors back in the day (I.E Aerith being spelled “Aeris” in the english version). Japan games back then were not very well known for the best translations. Most likely “Dalad Jelly” is “Salad Jelly” but the people translating it wrote it wrong. I don’t know how, but it happens for some apparent reason.

    So, FF13 review next? If you want to know why there are sequels to that game, here you go:

    http://www.escapistmagazine.com/news/view/103997-Final-Fantasy-XIII-Producer-Wants-a-Sequel

    As for the game (FF13) itself, I was okay with it. I did enjoy it despite some blatant flaws and I don’t regret playing it. However, I will put my foot down on the direct sequel nonsense. Seriously, at least FF13 was followable, FF13-2 made no damn sense both story wise and lore wise.

    • doresh

      Actually, it’s supposed to be “Aerith”, but since there is no katakana for “th”, her name is written as “Aeris” – not the intented name, but somehow correct as well.

      • LightningFarron19

        That’s what I was saying. The translation was fudged up. Even if it was on purpose, the translators should have found it odd that her name ended with an “S”.

        • doresh

          We’re talking about a game were the protagonist is named after a conglomeration of floating water and the antagonist is named after a spiritual tree. Anything is possible!

          Plus it’s a Japanese game. Names ending with “s” are probably the least weird things they came across during localization. Heck, sometimes it’s hard enough to recognize actual English names in katakana XD

    • http://www.facebook.com/people/Mitchell-Bandes/100001750373297 Mitchell Bandes

      “As for the game (FF13) itself, I was okay with it. I did enjoy it

      wise.”

      You’ve got to be kidding. The sequel fixes many terrible story and gameplay flaws from the original. The whole L’cie nonsense, with its ridiculously vague terms and conditions, takes a backseat, and 13-2 is all the better for it. And the time travel concept is hardly difficult to wrap your mind around, with the media being saturated by Doctor Who and other similar fictional works.

      • LightningFarron19

        The story was all over the place, with stating a bunch of nonsense about “paradoxes and reincarnation”. The thing literally ended with the end of the world and a “to be continued”. So no, it was not better. Story wise, it was MUCH worse.

        • http://www.facebook.com/people/Mitchell-Bandes/100001750373297 Mitchell Bandes

          If you have a personal dislike for time travel plots, the concept of reincarnation, and bad endings that emotionally punch you in the gut, then that’s your problem. Personally, I enjoy all those things. Three great tastes that taste great together, and all that.

    The Guardian: Your plan is coming along nicely. I’m surprised that you didn’t kill Spoony when you had the chance.

    Sephiroth: Funny you could have done the same thing.

    The Guardian: Touche! Still….Spoony not knowing the difference between what’s real & what isn’t real, will make him unable to review Final Fantasy XIII, thus unable to stop The Meteor Spell.

    Sephiroth: You yourself said that we should not underestimate him. Spoony has endured Final Fantasy 8, Final Fantasy X & X2, & of course all the Ultima games, but that doesn’t mean the he’ll survive Final Fantasy XIII. By the time he’s done reviewing Final Fantasy XIII, his spirit will snap like a twig.

    Spoony has been dancing around the FF 13 game and it makes me wonder what is so bad about this one. He braved FF 8, 10, 10-2, and the Ultima 8 and 9. He endured Punkin Head, The Thing, the Adventures of Bayou Billy, And E T and all other horrible games. All so bad in their own right. He bit the bullet for some bad FMVs like Microcosm, Make my Videos, and Seward Shark. So I wander what so sinister about FF XIII. He never dance around those earlier games games and put them off like a chore that will get you radiation poisoning and summoning a demon from the abyss that want to eat your soul there after and thing open a gate to a nether world to destroy this one. Something is up something must be bad about FF XIII. Ultima 9 sh!t on his childhood. could it be that FF series did the same? Or is it something else. He hint that the game is an Eldritch Lore that no one should READ!!!

    • LightningFarron19

      Personally, it was not that bad. It was okay in my book, but it’s just that he’s building up to the whole “Armageddon spell” which is going to seemingly end the Spoony Experiment. He started his career with FF8 and he is finishing with FF13. All will come full circle.

      As for the Eldritch Lore, the reason being is in two points:

      1. Spoony’s being over-dramatic

      2. The story is about the bad guys trying to force the godd guys to summon Ragnorok and kill millions of poeple with it in the homeworld of Cocoon. That in turn will summon the “Maker” or god of that world and start everything anew. He’s just making a comparison of the story to the Eldritch Lore which is used to end everything.

      • http://www.facebook.com/nasser.elusta Nasser Elusta

        I really hope it doesn’t end the Spoonyone, I hope he coninues after FF13. I discovered him when “The Thing” game video was a couple of week old and stayed loyal after that. He really change my view of the gaming community and informed quite alot on D&D and the such/

    • http://www.giantbomb.com/profile/cornbredx/ CornBRED-X

      It’s not really bad, per say, just takes a long long long time to get going and is really boring. That is just my opinion though.

    • marabackman

      If I remember correctly he did talk about having a bad first impression of the game at whatever con it was, comparing it unfavourably to the new Guild Wars. Maybe he’ll surprise us by giving different feedback than we expect?

  • Merost

    Allright, plans for a FF13 review. How about one 5min video each month, but 1000 Tweets with unfunny jokes every day? Oh and every 2-3 days one Tweet about how you are “working your ass off” or about how your “harddrive crashed and lost all date / feeling terribly ill / orea is ill”.

      Or then you just quit watching and don’t have to care about it anymore. Much better than wallowing in resentment.

        • marabackman

            I still want him to finish the “To Boldly Flee” commentary.

          • marabackman

            Same here, though I’m not too bothered if he spends his time on something else. I’m willing to cut Spoony some slack, not only because of his health problems, but also because even simple video-editing can take a long time. I’ve filmed sporting events and some other shorter video projects, where the editing takes its time even if the program works as it’s supposed to.

    (also, if I may get nit-picky for a moment, that was Sadako’s mother they were experimenting on in that clip from ‘Ringu’, not Sadako herself, although she was the one who killed that guy at the end of the scene.)

    The sad thing is this game actually has more to do with the plot of the original novels than the movies.

    • marabackman

      Just read the summary on wikipedia. “WTF” does not cover how weird it eventually got. I think I’ll stick to the film-versions…

    I love the Ring reviews :D AThey’re among the best I’ve seen from Spoony

    I’m very excited for the FF X-III review, especially as he has put out some of his best work recently. But I’m also dreading it… I don’t want the experiment to end after that review. And it seem like it’s building up to that :S

  • labeth

    Wow, this game was quite the pile of ass.

    As someone mentioned above, there was a whole Matrixy plot to the third book in the Ring series, Loop, so there is literally no excuse for this garbled, cobbled together piece of garbage. Loop was the weakest of the trilogy and it was nowhere even approaching this incoherent and stupid.

    Glad to see the interface gags back– I missed those! Totally excellent review.

  • zenithl

    When I heard your free inventory/reload action rant, I immediately thought about one of the few horror games that tried to steer away from this formula. Namely, Alone in the Dark (2008) widely regarded as one of the worst game of all time. (One quite innovative thing about that game is that you manipulate your inventory in your coat pockets in real time.)

      Stalker SOC did it earlier, I think. That was released in 2007.

    I just keep watching this video just for the parts where the chief explains his evil plan. That is the single worst piece of voice acting i have ever seen. It’s just amazing this exists and that anyone in the English speaking world would have approved this.

    • alaterale

      Pretty comparable to House of the Dead 2 in terms of awful voice acting heh

        oh if you thought that is bad oh shit then I can only guess that neither have ever heard of a game called chaos wars in fact just take a look http://www.youtube.com/watch?NR=1&v=M7mmon05PwQ&feature=endscreen

  • DrForrester

    My god this game was a steamy hunk of shit. Gotta love that awkward time of gaming in the third dimension. As far as the Dreamcast goes I want to at least stick up for the fact that it had some great fighting games, both originals and ports. I can’t even begin to imagine how many hours my friend and I spent playing Power Stone 1 and 2 on his DC

  • http://talesofbrim.com/ subaqueousReach

    I was actually kind of disappointed by this review. It didn’t seem to
    have the flare to it that Spoony usually has, like when he reviewed “The
    Thing”, that is probably my favorite review of his. It almost felt as
    though he was forcing his jokes to be funny(like how he went on and on
    about Dallad Jelly). Everyone has an off day once in a while though and
    this is just my opinion =/

    • MediaGold

      I think this review is back to classic form for Spoony. One of his best, IMHO.

      • ShipoftheLine

        Yes / no. Its a step in the right direction, but it is indeed a bit forced. Heres what I wrote in the first part about it:

        First: Im REALLY grateful about Spoony doing finally a game review again, I really missed those.

        But I also have some critism: Am I the only one who thought this video was a bit “forced”? That he took too much time with single jokes? For example the endless discussion of the “Dalad Jelly”, yeah we get it its funny, but come one “S” and “D” are right next to each other on the keyboard. There you have it.

        Im saying that a lot of the enjoyment of Spoonys old videos came from how “natural” they were, it was really just Spoony playing a game an pointing out funny stuff. In the old videos Spoony would have fired a quick cuckle at the “Dalad Jelley” and moved on.

        So Spoony, MANY THANKS for bringing back the game reviews, but you dont have to “overproduce”. Just do your thing!

  • superhyperduck

    the shotgun could have been a .410 gauge those have low recoil compared to a 12 gauge. And maybe all she could find were carbon zinc batteries. Maybe its a high drain flashlight that needs more current to show full brightness and it drains quickly when you put in the crappy carbon zinc batteries. Wow I’m really obnoxious aren’t I?

    • Techee44

      Well, you’re certainly putting more thought into this than the gamemakers.

  • http://twitter.com/Omega_Tengu Mr. Tengu

    Enjoyed it just two things that Irked me:
    1-The game is based on the book not the movie, so the game doesn’t have to match the movies aesthetics.
    2-It uses the non-american meaning of Jelly, of which you call Jell-o. Americans call Jam, “Jelly” and Jelly, “Jell-o”.

    • wizzbang

      The movie was based on the book too. Also, if this has nothing to do with the film, why does it include FMV taken directly from “Ringu”?

    Not finished, but when he comments on the number of Bathrooms; all I can think of is Rocko’s Modern Life where his house needs to be rebuilt and the guy he hires specializes in bathrooms. “My Kitchen is a Bathroom!

    That FMV was Sadako’s mother, which is from Ringu, I believe.

  • IHeart28

    Realy nice conclusion to the first part! The ending, although awesome, makes me feel that Spoony’s adventure within whatever he’s in ony just began. FFXIII, the end is nigh, he warned us this wold come but we still aren’t ready for it. Can’t wait for the FFXIII review!

    Wow, the Chief’s rambling villain monologue was hilarious. He talks so fast, yet sounds so bored. I also love Meg’s non-reaction both to his entrance and his subsequent mutation. Both times she still has that dumb, perky smile. Another thing. The Chief, when he came in, was walking like a drunken marionette missing some strings. That entire scene was just flat-out hilariously embarrassing, with its bad voice acting, breathless, monotone line delivery, inappropriate facial expressions, and bad character movements. This one scene could perfectly encapsulate and summarize all that is wrong with the non-gameplay aspects of The Ring: Terror’s Realm.

    The strangest part about this game, and i just found this out, is that the original Japanese version still uses those crappy English voices, only it’s accompanied with Japanese subtitles. And the translation does not quite match the spoken dialogue.
