You need to promise me something.

Please for the love of Christ and all things holy, PLEASE KEEP YOUR DRAWINGS FOR YOUR SHOW.

I loved it because it is not every other cookie-cutter gaming show. It reflects your voice. You have my official endorsement. You can put that on the tin.

Yeah, I really like the drawings and bumps. Quite pleased about the bit about fleshlights.

I saw one that had a guy in front of a green screen, with a picture of all his junk behind him. Guess he only wanted to clean up the one time.

I think these are the important things that are bad about those kinds of videos. Standing in front of a wall of video games is common in those videos too, but some people who make good videos also do that.

Like here's my 4k resolution review of Sonic 3, here I am in frame, here's all my gaming stuff neatly arranged behind me. I don't get it. I don't know why that's necessary. I get into it briefly at the beginning of the episode when I complain about appearing on-camera.
Truly, Pewdiepie is the Hitchcock of our time.

This turned out exceptionally well.

Also, the next frog is obviously going to be Superfrog on the Amiga.

Honestly, a very calm string of cusses from a soft British voice is weirdly therapeutic.

I may recommend this video to trauma patients.
