Since James is busy with the movie, it looks like Mike stole his popularity :P He's the new videogame nerd! But not an angry one.

 

Nice review!

Nice review!

 

Goin' Quackers looks a lot like Crash Bandicoot. It's the same style of 3D platform game, and the 4 levels where you collect toys to unlock time trial levels and pieces of bosses reminds me of the crystals, relics and gems you had to collect in CB.

Apparently, searching "Jaguar Red screen of Death" on google leads me to a Wikipedia page that also mentions the Jaguar's RSoD. It says that it comes up when there's an incompability with the game or the game fails to load, so maybe is software problem, and not hardware problem.

Woah! Big text. Didn't read it all, but I will do it in another time. Anyway, congratulations on your marriage! I hope you have lots of little nerdies to review old (actual) videogames in a near future and make movies about it!

There are better ways to prevent piracy and protect the copyright, rather than just censoring and opressing people like nort korea or china is doing. It's as easy as talk and reach an agreement between both parts. If both parts doesn't reach one, we call an intermediator to decide for them, without crossing any limits.

In this case, the gobernment did what he wanted without even asking first or talking. And that's how the conflict started. SOPA, PIPA, NDAA (not copyright related, but also opressive), all those laws threat our liberty and opress the inocents. Those laws doesn't protect the copyright laws, they just opress everyone, even the authors of content. It can't be like this. It must be stopped before your fanbase decrease and your projects become lost because of those laws that makes no sense.

For freedom!

I guess this is some kind of patience test. That, or maybe an uncomplete game. It's like some kind of alpha stage release. It's like... you rescue the princess, so a normal person would turn off the console claiming he completed the game, but also added some kind of secret ending to tell the people that persist trying to find an end that the game has already ended... But you must be persistent to discover that the end of the game is in that exact random spot... I don't know what were they up to when they did that. It has no sense, unless you have a manual that explains what happens or what are you doing. And the flickering is because there are too many sprites in the screen and the NES can't handle them. As I said, looks more like an alpha release, like that cheetah man game you reviewed.

Hey James,

I discovered your Nerd episodes in youtube a few months ago. And I must say that, every episode of your nerd series leaves a smile in my face. They are fun and enjoyable.

Well, I must admit I'm not what I call a "true" gamer. I'm a young one and the first videoconsole I played was a SNES. Yeah, a 16 bit console, when I had about 3 years old. Back then I didn't even know what was I supposed to do, rather than smash the pad's buttons, but, whatever. Then, a few years later, when I was about 5, I had my very own videoconsole. And I can always say, my first videoconsole was an 8-bit videoconsole, because I got a Game Boy.

I never had the chance to experience the gameplay that an Atari 2600 or a NES could give to you, but even if so, your videos bring me back memories from my childhood, when I used to play 8-bit games on my Game Boy, or 16-bit in my parent's SNES, and watching VHS of videogame reviews before going to bed. That means a lot for any gamer.

I also had many other videoconsoles like a Saturn, a Nintendo 64, all playstations but... that's another story.

I'm glad you're still with your nerd episodes, and I hope you're doing well with the movie. I'd like to help, but I can't do anything. I also have a friend who is into video editing, but he can't help either for many reasons. So, all I can do is wish you the best with your project. We'll be here waiting for 6 or 10 or 100 years if necessary. Keep the good work up!

Regards,

Aaron
