The Spoony Experiment

Has anyone else here seen this guy's reviews?  They're hilarious!  I especially like his FF8 and Phantasmagoria 2 reviews.

As far as snarky reviewers on the Internet goes, he's one of my favorites.  Phantasmagoria 2 was a lot of fun, I agree.  Probably one of his best video game reviews!  (Touch long, but he DID kind of play through the whole thing.)

He's got some other good stuff, too, not just video game reviews.  He had a hilarious review of the video Yor's World, but since the website was recently redone, I'm not sure if it's up yet.

Yeah - it's actually Yor: The Hunter from the Future.  He also did the show Knightmare and a couple of others.

I think he should release an iRiff - if he did, I'd definitely buy it.

I love this guy. His FF8 reviews are some of his best imo.

Right, right, I was thinking about that hella-catchy theme song.  Thanks for the correction!

Well, to be fair, he IS the man.

His review of The Thing is great I think I posted a link somewhere on here a year or so ago.

Liked the P2 review...haven't seen anything else by him, though.  That was a game I actually liked, but then, when I first played it I was NOT 17 and the only thing on my mind was, "So, they're in the bedroom and...oh.  Mom and Dad aren't around, are they?"

Don't know if he mentioned this about Yor, but it's actually shortened from a 3-hour miniseries that ran in Italy, apparently.  Don't know how much was commercials, but I can assume at least 45 minutes are cut out.  So, if you can imagine Yor even longer...

"Lost in the world of past, in the echo of ancient blast...YOR'S WORLD
There is a man from future, a man of mystery...YOR'S WORLD"

The rest I'm not sure of.  I could swear at some point the singer says, "The sun is always hungry, even in his pleasure dome."  ;D
