And here's another clip of Seaman. A review by Classic Game Room this time. One of the best, if not THE best game review channels that ever landed on YouTube. And because Seaman deserves some more love...

@ThanosReXXX Oh look, it's @NEStalgia's favorite Youtube channel!

That video is actually how I first learned about Seaman. Crazy how old it is at this point. If I'm not mistaken, that woman at the beginning is Mark's wife now, and they have kids. Hopefully he won't eat them!

@ReaderRagfihs Haha, yeah... The guy's got a great radio voice, though. I now follow him on his new channel,
Tome Of Infinity, since the Classic Game Room is no more. His voice over videos are much better than the ones that he actually appears in, but in general, the quality has improved by leaps and bounds, since that Seaman video, which still looks kinda clumsy in certain areas.

Good call on that parrot game, by the way. It's just not a game for real men...

Just read an article on our sister site and oh my god the wiener waving contest is strong.

Like how much of an ego and fanboyism do you need to say "The game our platform had in development hell for 10 years that came out clunky and highly divisive is better than your game in hell for 6 years that came out average and that proves you're playing catch up".

Christ, faith in humanity plummeting.

@Knuckles-Fajita So, which games exactly is this d*** measuring contest about?
I'll take a guess on the Microsoft game, which will probably be Crackdown 3?

@ThanosReXXX I haven't been following Tome of Infinity, I'll have to check it out.

And while I agree the old Classic Game Room is a bit rough in certain aspects, it sort of has an amateurish charm to it, and it's not like there was much of a standard for this sort of stuff in the year 2000.

The old internet in general was a weird place. Young, exciting, and even a bit sketchy at times. I sort of miss it, to be honest. Though I certainly don't miss dial up speeds.

@ThanosReXXX Crackdown 3 vs Last Guardian. And how apparently the state TLG released in, divisive, is better than Crackdown 3's average and how that shows Xbox cant keep up.

Like alright, keep it in ya pants kids. XD

@ReaderRagfihs Agreed. We must be getting old or something...
As for Tome Of Infinity: just click on the YouTube logo in the Seaman video to go there. Mark has transferred all of his CGR videos to his new channel, so you've basically already found it.
EDIT:
Just in case you weren't aware of this either: after the closing of CGR, Mark went on alone under his YouTube name Lord Karnage and kept making videos, but all of these videos are now also under the banner of Tome Of Infinity, so might just have to do some catching up where watching his videos is concerned...

@Knuckles-Fajita Indeed. And then they say that Sony has no nasty fanboys...
When will the kids ever learn, huh?

@ThanosReXXX When they move out of their parents basements, end up in the real world, and realise, oh crap, my walled garden approach to what I like and dismissing everything else doesn't get me far.

You know, like the rest of us.

@Knuckles-Fajita Walled garden? Well, that's a very nice way of saying "blinders"...

@ThanosReXXX I did notice when the channel changed from Inecom Company to Lord Karnage to Tome of Infinity, never thought much of it though.

@ThanosReXXX I also remember when they stopped doing cgrundertow, I wasn't really saddened much by that one though.

@ReaderRagfihs No, me neither. That guy had anything BUT a good voice...
Did watch the final video, though, as part of the whole farewell to CGR series of videos.
It was appropriately weird...

@ThanosReXXX It was actually several different people who were in charge of those. Not that you'd watch more than one of them to find this out, though. I think there was one guy who I could tolerate, and the others were just bleh.

@ThanosReXXX: I haven't gotten around to the others yet. I had only intended to watch one of the aforementioned videos last night and ended up just watching the other three as well. XD

I've never done webcam roulette stuff since I'm one of those private types, but the amount of people that seemed to be high in those videos....

@ReaderRagfihs: I probably would have enjoyed that for a little while as a kid. The first game I recall playing that involved talking to something was one of the Nintendo games on the DS. They weren't always the best with commands.

I'm sitting here thinking "Well, Nintendo games on the DS doesn't narrow it down much" and then I realized you probably meant Nintendogs.

@ReaderRagfihs I've only ever known of three people: Mark, the other guy in the Seaman video, and the one with the annoying voice that did CGR Undertow. I basically only enjoyed Mark's videos, and still do.

@Blitzenexx The two videos I posted, aren't webcam videos, though. Nor did I ever watch or participate in webcam roulette myself, but in this case, I too found them quite entertaining to watch. But yeah, quite a few stoners in there...

As for that DS game, you've said it exactly right: you would have enjoyed that as a KID, but not as an adult, no sane person would or should, far as I'm concerned.

Fun fact: there were more games where you had to say things or even shout into the microphone of the DS, but in quite a few of them, you could also simply blow into the microphone instead of shout, because it ultimately had the same effect. Much like basically only having to wrist-flick a Wii remote to play Wii Sports tennis, instead of making the entire arm and body movement of an actual tennis player...

@ReaderRagfihs Of course, and I actually did, as well as with bowling, but shouting into a DS microphone was a bridge too far for me personally...
