PS3 Buying Guide & Favorite Games

Looking to buy a Sony Playstation 3 (PS3)? This is the Buying Guide for you! We cover the three different PS3 models, accessories and we list some of our favorite games to get you started! Oh yeah…and we even talk about the PS3 Move controller… 😉

BEHIND THE SCENES: For this video it was important to cover all three models of PS3 and thankfully Kelsey and PinkGorillaGames had two of them that they let us borrow. Those backwards compatible ones easily go for $140+ now. Plus we had a ton of fun just picking out the games we would recommend! Although…when Kelsey showed up with some HD Remasters… I don’t think she fully understood just how many of them I had! So we had some fun with that…

Also…Kelsey was stoked to have purchased a Playstation shirt just the week before and we made sure to get that in the thumbnail. Enjoy!

Hanging out in John Hancock’s Game Room of Doom

John Hancock: Apologize for the tilted camera. This video was made to thank MetalJesusRocks for having me on as a guest, and for being one of the best retrogaming channels in the Northwest. MJR is a very genuine person, off the camera, and I have enjoyed being friends with him. I have been a guest on his channel for several videos, and look forward to being a guest on his channel even more. If you have not checked out his channel, the link is below, as well as a link to the videos i have been featured in. MJR also shares some lesser known information about how he joined Sierra and how we met.

RGB and Modern Gaming Setups – MY LIFE IN GAMING

My Life in Gaming: In this follow up episode to the “RGB and the Framemeister 101 :: Getting the Best Picture from Retro Consoles” episode, Coury and Try answer some of the most common questions they got in that video.

Questions like “What connection do you use for each console?”, “Does the big SCART connector fit into that little connection on the front of the XRGB Framemeister” and “How do you have all this integrated into your setup?” will be answered in this episode.

If you’re new to the whole RGB thing, check out the first video right here: http://youtu.be/43dzrCAfU3A

SCART Definition from RetroRGB.com: Said simply, RGB is the best possible video output you can get from classic game consoles. The image is sharper, the colors are more defined and it’s overall a much clearer picture. The best way I can describe RGB vs some of the other methods of playing classic game systems is this: It’s just like looking through a clean window vs. a dirty one. In many cases, it’s that big of a difference.

Star Wars + Mario Kart: Star Kart – the best damn thing I’ve seen in a while!

The Kart Awakens! This video took Dark Pixel Digital a year to make, and I know you guys will enjoy it!

Dark Pixel: Mario Kart and Star Wars just go together so perfectly now! We didn’t even realize it before, but now we can’t live without it. This game needs to be made! The world of Super Mario Brothers and The Force need to be combined! Mario Parkour was nice, but Super Mario Star Wars is an absolute necessity! Speaking of Mario Bros Parkour… a Sequel may soon be coming out!
