It took literally all day and all night to get it done, but here it is: Matt Chat 8: The Secret of Monkey Island. This one should be available in HD soon, but it's my understanding that it can take awhile for YouTube to post the option. This is the first time I've attempted to do a HD video, so bear with me. Hopefully, the options will appear after the video has finished processing.

Enjoy the video and please let me know what you think!

Awesome series

Matt,

I just wanted to give you some props for these. I've played about half the games you've reviewed, and for the ones that I played, your Matt Chats are spot on. That gave me the confidence to enjoy and appreciate the reviews for the games I missed. Great job for all and nice T Shirts! : )

Yeah LOVE those t-shirts!

They are NOT from our store are they? Where did you get them?

Encoding H.264 HD video can be really really time consuming even on a quad core. There are supposed to be GPU-assisted solutions out there now, or in the near future. I also know of a USB adapter that encodes HD video, from a company called Elgato, though it is Mac-only.

I'd love a GPU boost. I have a kickass GPU, so that'd be excellent. Please let me know if you hear anything more about that solution.

The T-shirts are from various places. Elizabeth finds many of them when she is out bargain hunting. I ordered the LOAD"*" one from somewhere on the web, but for the life of me I can't find it again. I remember that it was the only retro shirt they had at the time.

One good place to order from is thinkgeek. Lots of good shirts there. This place is good too. I have the Flynn shirt, but no use wearing it since people can't see the back. :)

Ah nice cover - although the arrangement is a bit to tame and too staccato for my liking... ;-) Nice find!
