Happy The Secret of Monkey Island - YouTube Review

Hi, guys, I thought you might want to see my new Matt Chat: The Secret of Monkey Island. It's one of my favorite games of all time, and I know I'm not alone in that!

I chose to show the original EGA version, though we all know the later versions (particularly the Amiga's, ahem) looked much nicer. Ron himself told me that the EGA version was first, though, so I went with it for authenticity's sake.

At any rate, please enjoy the video and let me know what you think.
P.S. It's available in HD as well, so be sure to click that option if you want to see the video in much higher resolution.

I agree on the 'tad too short' comment, but maybe I just miss to see Herman Toothrot Maybe it's an idea to include just a single screen of the VGA version in your next review for comparison Other than that it's a nice review Matt

Yarrr matey! Jolly Roger would be proud
Good review, a bit short and looks like cut in the middle of something, but on the other hand this could be a great reason for those who didn't play to try it out.
Shocking ending, lol

Pretty good. You've got an enthusiasm and likeability that comes trough in a very good way.

A small nitpick tho, is that breaking up the review by talking about all of these other projects you're doing, is perhaps not the ideal way to make the video flow smoothly.

You may want to do all that stuff at the beginning or the end, in future vid's.

Looking forward to more stuff! 'Twould be interesting to see you unleash the darkness and fury of Shadow of the Beast next, to be sure!
