MAME Arcade Cab Audio Commentary w/Drunken Master Paul

This was one of my first popular videos on YouTube…and I think it’s easy to see why: Drunken Master Paul and I are having a ton of fun tearing down and building back up an arcade cabinet that still gets used in my Game Room.

This video comprised of two full days of shooting and there was a ton of footage cut from the final video, but now you can get the behind the scenes audio commentary from both us of.

Please let me know what you think of these commentaries. Are you enjoying them? Thanks!

Prototype USA 64DD UPDATE – The Adventure Continues!!

Holy cow! This was way more complicated than I ever expected… oh…and did I mention that 3 more rare blue dev disks showed up after my last video!? Thankfully Tony from @Hard4Games flew from Detroit to Seattle to help me discover what is on my mystery blue disk, whether there was anything on the other 3 disks AND backup the firmware of the drive itself! It’s an epic tale full of mystery, intrigue and excitement!

Behind the Scenes w/ METAL JESUS ROCKS in Seattle! – H4G

Tony: Had an amazing time in Seattle with Metal Jesus Rocks! For those unaware, he had found an ultra-rare American N64 DD unit. It’s so rare that it’s the only one known to exist. He generously flew me out to shoot a video, show me around Seattle, and ultimately preserve the contents of his discovery. Amazing time. 10/10 would Seattle again!
