Complete Original XBOX Collection – 884 Games – What the heck!?

An entire original XBOX collection was sold to Pink Gorilla Games in Seattle and Kelsey walks us through some of the more rare and expensive games as well as just some of the BEST games for the console! While filming this video, there was a very active karaoke bar in the same building, which is what you hear in the background. Normally I would just reshoot some of that, but I thought it was kind of funny…so we rolled with it!

BTW: The owner of the XBOX collection did not give us permission to disclose how much he was paid for the entire collection. Sorry!

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.
