  • game preservation never fails to make me tear up man. the history of gaming and the internet are very much intertwined, and i definitely miss the days companies were less tapped into our online communities. software engineers ripping and posting iso's so people of any class or culture could experience them, translators posting translations of foreign games online (or making translation subtitles/patches) so those experiences could be genuinely shared across cultures, detail-obsessed completionists who wrote up full game walkthroughs longer than any Hudson News shelf novel, modding communities fixing, upscaling and porting games to keep them healthy and alive... at its core, the gaming community has always been communal. and i'd give anything to be able to get that freedom to share back. thanks from the bottom of my old-gamer heart for being a true gamer and dumping this rare piece of history online.

  • Honestly I feel sad that the collectors that had the fir a while that collected it because it was not anywhere but in a few games copies and then this guy comes along and gives it to the world. Yeah there are not very many physical copies but there must have been the feeling that not very many people have it and now anyone can have it.

    • @Xeinafa yeah but I do feel that the people that had the game before were not giving it out for a reason and that would be to keep it special to the people that actually do own it

  • Man after watching this video it would be cool if you made a long video about ds capture cards. You can not believe how hard I’ve been trying to play my new 3ds xl on a big screen, I would stream it to a pc with snickerstream but it would have lag, I would also try to stream through my phone by recording the screen of the ds but that wouldn’t work perfectly either. I feel that the only real way to play my ds on the big screen is with a capture card but no matter how hard I try it’s close to impossible to find affordable capture cards for ds systems especially the newer models. Now that I think about it I don’t know why I’m typing this(your probably not gonna read it) but I just really wanna full fill my life long dream of play my new 3ds xl games on a tv, and for some reason after seeing this video I really think you can be able to help me and the ds community achieve that dream.

  • You should learn Japanese, my man. You keep travelling there, you have multiple Japanese friends and most of all, you found all these historical(ly bizarre) things from Japan. You gotta have some knowledge about the Japanese language before booking your next last minute flight to Japan! So go! I'm starting myself, and lemme tell ya, it's an amazing thing! I've been learning German for about a year now, that was fantastic to learn so much about their culture and learning about sentence structure, and I'll just say, as you may know, Japanese is hard, but it's a challenge I know you'll be capable to take. You're absolutely awesome, my dude. But come on, learn Japanese ya dingus.
