That's... unexpected.
IIRC it was on the Mandy's list but with his speed and preferences (rarely touch hidden gems) it was unlikely to happen.

the english translation in dungeon cleaners/planet alcatraz is complete dogshit if compared to the original. it doesn't have any of its bite, but russian prison jargon is exceptionally hard to translate (and impenetrable to most native rus speakers that haven't been in the joint)

edit - watched it, quite a bit of missing content in ENG version

My favourite intro in a game:


That said, Goblin has declined considerably since then and turned into a mostly pointless vatnik. Sad.

This guy deserves more views and subscribers.

Strange, didn't received any videos from him since Shadow Company only to find out my sub was missing...
Have both SC and 9th Company installed now, played a bit and they are fine but it's hard to come back.

edit
MMO/RPG (and some old classics as a bonus) expert? about old fossil by modern standards

I had a very idealistic and positive thoughts about the Internet before Facebook and smartphones opened the floodgates. I thought that finally we are getting rid of the top-down content policing of media and the average consumer will appreciate originality. Constraints will be lifted and people will learn to pick higher quality content.

This has happened to some degree, but I didn't realize that the vast majority of people actually enjoy being told what to consume and prefer familiarity and click-bait over more subtle forms of expression.

'Twas never so save in the projects of delusional sylicon valley techies and their fellow travelers overstuffed with the dreams of decentralisation and jolly rhizoma. Finite human "subject" needs their roots and stable framework to act from. Evershifting horizons and the chaos of fluid images sliding upon the flat glacis of cyberspace lead not to free self-creation, an expressivist utopia, but rather to collapse into amorphous mush, into excrement wherefrom a skilled alchemist may perhaps draw gold but if so then not on account of will and work of said excrement. Indeed the unmoored excrrment hapilly embraces whatever ideology proffered them as the source of some stability.

Eeehhh... from that "worst influences" i expected something about how many games rely on established gameplay theory without any changes that tend to make them very formulaic by following what everything else does, but this video is really just about some indie devs working on early access and/or episodic games changing their lore to get youtubers show their games or because youtubers guessed some reveal, twist or whatever they wanted to have, which IMO is way far from "worst influence" on modern games and not even restricted to games (which even the guy in that video seems to acknowledge by having a clip by GRRM near the end about the topic).

This guy looks at old and flash games as well as doing some vids about tel*vision. He has a good retrospective about the flashgame Super Fancy Pants and an interview with the developer.
