Review - John Robertson: The Dark Room

The Dark Room has been running consecutively for seven years now. If Robertson ever gets bored of killing people inside his little dark room, he could do anything from becoming a wrestling announcer to being the next Sith Lord. No rush though, the crowd is still enjoying being insulted and exterminated. To my surprise, I also found myself chanting dead-wishes to the undeserving players.

Funny Beeseness review
