. And while being emotive and interesting to listen to is generally important for a Let's Player, Pcull is notable for going
above and beyond. He has an
bombastic narration style, full of
wildly vacillating voices and accents
, and his fairly deep natural voice. Add to that a tendency to
ramble at length about whatever comes to mind while he's playing the game

One of Us: Mentions this page itself by name in his finale. Diddy Kong Racing Performance Anxiety: The Let's Play curse hits him hard in Super Mario 64.
