Lugbzurg continues his quest to locate The Four Elements of F.P.S. Design before Jeff destroys the Earth by giving it a good ol' whack with da Moon. There's no rush, though, due to traveling back in time to when the elements were more attainable. Of course, he tackles this imperative mission in the only way he knows how, which is to... review videogames, for some reason. Also included are additional versions of Serious Sam; The First and Second Encounters!
Lugbzurg returns for... AN ADVENTURE!? INSIDE A REVIEW!? In a serious comeback, Lugbzurg has gotta retrieve these four (4) ancient mystical runes via time-travel in order to defeat an evil AI that was once presumed a one-off joke. And it seems the only way to save the world is to... review videogames for some reason. Naturally, Serious Sam is the way to go!
Lugbzurg indulges on cheese crackers di- I mean... legos, embedded with his childhood and imagination as he reviews the "other" first videogame he ever purchased in one of the smallest open-world games out there.

This game's been getting a lot of attention lately. Lugbzurg dashes into the Sonic series with the first videogame he ever purchased. But when he starts to lose his sanity, the review may only be able to progress if only it becomes a team effort.

Here I have a go at dubbing over how Sonic came to be a vigilante fugitive.
NOTE: The voice of "Control" was digitally-edited to have a lower pitch.

Here, I make something of an attempt dubbing over the beginning of one the coolest platformers of all time.
NOTE: The voice(s?) of the cop(s?) was/were (all) digitally-edited to have a lower pitch.

Lugbzurg aspires to be cool somehow, and the quickest way to do that appears to be reviewing a children's game from the beloved edutainment developer, Humongous Entertainment.
"Who were those cool cameos at the end?" Well, if you somehow found me before you found them... somehow, go check out PeanutButterGamer and BrutalMoose on YouTube!
Feel free to watch the Walkthough I sto- secured from Mr. Eight-Three-One!
To elaborate on what was said in the credits, I normally use Fraps or LoiLo to record my own gameplay footage. However, neither of them would work on the game for reasons I do not understand. So I procured some of the best possible complete gameplay footage I could find, which was from "Mr. 831" over here. He's a big fan of Humongous Entertainment, and his playthrough seemed to be in the highest quality, set in one take, and even showed off the mouse controls in Level 2, so he seemed like a perfect fit! I did find out that Bandicam was compatible with the game, but I didn't want to buy ANOTHER piece of recording software for just one video, so some of the zoomed in shots you see in the review are from that, as I was still able to use the trial version, which leaves behind a watermark at the top of the screen. This is the first time I've ever had to borrow footage for the bulk of a review. I do try to record my own footage as often as I can.

Lugbzurg indulges on his childhood obsession as he looks over his first shooter and proceeds to geek out over one of Disney's long-dormant intellectual properties.

In this episode, Lugbzurg finds the best possible excuse ever conceived by mankind to wear the old Frogger 2: Swampy's Revenge shirt he made when he was a kid. Also, he finally reviews the sequel to a game he's actually reviewed previously for once.

Interdimensional super terrorist, Doctor Eggman, launches an all-out assault upon a civilian cityscape. Within moments, world-renound public hero #1 (and part-time vigilante on the side), Sonic the Hedgehog blasts through his forces, annihilating a squadron of cutting-edge killer androids. One cocky one-liner later, and he's got their attention. Sonic keeps the fight on them up until the Guardian Units of Nations quickly arrive on the scene, allowing him to leave the forces to the chaos, luring the bulk of the badniks outside the city in a global high-speed chase... but not before the metropolitan landscape that was once home to hundreds of thousands of people is devastated in destruction from the act of terror. Cutting his losses, the fastest thing alive takes the fight across the hemisphere to an entirely different time zone. The androids are on his tail, but Sonic won't have any of that! He quickly manages to lose them again, but this metallic army prepares an ambush that the Blue Blur may be ill-prepared for. He charges through a secret underground passageway and zips around the edge of the storm to meet them. Sonic attempts to launch a sneak attack, but the badniks are ready for him, gunning him down on sight. Sonic drops to the ground, and one startling question wakes in his mind: "Are there... too many to kill them all...?" But there's no time to waste. Sonic the Hedgehog takes the chance... along with all of his impossible odds.
This is the kind of Sonic the Hedgehog experience I came to know and love growing up. Action, Adventure, Adrenaline, Exhilaration, Thrills, Complexity, Seriousness. It was cool, edgy, and dripping with attitude. But something changed roughly around 2010. Something's missing. And we want to get it back. We want... TRUE SONIC SPIRIT.

I'm giving another shot at voice-acting here, with a few additional visual edit efforts and some bits of added humor slipped right in.
NOTE: The voices of The Narrator, Klungo, and Mumbo-Jumbo were all digitally-edited to have a lower pitch.

As of April 21st, 2017, I can now hold my physical Kickstarter Backer Edition copy in my hand! I backed at the "Help shape the game!" tier, and joined Playtonic in design meetings via Skype, where I got to work on one of the chambers in the IcyMetric Palace, located in the game's second level, Glitterglaze Glacier. You'll know it when you see it. There's a sign in there that literally has my name on it! (There should also be a pagie waiting for you down there!)

Christmas and Breakout! What do these two things have in common!? Well, they both involve mostly cube...ish-shaped things being torn apart. Witness the untold tale of uncannily-tied youthful origins that indulged in moving a paddle back and forth to break some bricks, featuring Lugbzurg... and Ragnamune!? (Also featuring a cameo appearance by Snow Snow Man!)
Want some more Christmas presents? Have some more Breakout reviews by other entertaining critics! (It's kind of obscure... so it doesn't get reviewed very often. Let us give the gift of Breakout!)

It was November when I initially posted this (back on YouTube); the month of videogames! A time when the biggest videogame releases are unleashed upon the world! But let's take a moment to look back upon a classic that could use more love. But is it truly deserving of that love? Just how much does Frogger hold up today? Ehh... let's find out!
