Overclocked Remix AND YTMND of the Week AND A Bonus!

Ooooooh...I don't know which computer game brings back more memories for me...The Secret of Monkey Island, King's Quest VI: Heir Today, Gone Tomorrow; or The 7th Guest. One of the latter's themes being the star of this week's remix. The 7th Guest may not have the greatest acting*, but it has some AWESOME puzzles, especially for those who not only love a thinking man's game but also like supernatural/horror elements.

Speaking of horror elements...

Earth to Burger King and their ad execs: THAT is how most people would react to waking up with your stupid (and not to mention UBER-CREEPY) King.

There's a bonus? Oh yeah...happened to find this posted in the LJ Frasier community this morning...

If you're a fan of the said show AND/OR Star Trek: Voyager...drop everything you're doing AND click on the above link now!! Even though Frasier's title character is not featured, the skit *really* cooks...and even has an appearance from Eddie to boot for all you animal lovers. :)

Fair warning: The sound is a little out of sync with the video, but not enough to ruin what is quite the little sci-fi/comedy gem. :D

* - One of the greatest examples coming to mind being one of the characters hanging out in the game room, and when you solve the puzzle where you have to place eight queen pieces on a chessboard without them able to legally take out another, the character utters in a voice similar to Gavin McLeod's AND an acting style not unlike William Shatner's...

"They got...THE. BOY!!!" (insert a rather ghoulish woman's scream here)

Also worth mentioning is how, to this day, I swear that the man who does the voice of Stauf (the evil toymaker and villain of The 7th Guest/The 11th Hour series) appears in the middle of Sting's "Saint Augustine In Hell", on Ten Summoner's Tales. Either play a little T7G, or heck, just listen to this week's featured OC Remix (snippets of Stauf's voice are in there...especially at the end), and then listen to "Saint Augustine..."...try telling me that "BREAK'S OVER!!!" middle section doesn't sound like Stauf getting his jollies. Seriously, I dare you to tell me that.
