Kelsey owns two retro gaming stores in the Seattle area and deals with fake and reproduction Nintendo games all the time. In this video she gives you some of her best tips and tricks for determining if a Nintendo game cartridge is real…or FAKE! This video is a must watch for any serious game collector who wants to spot fake Nintendo games!
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!
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!
In this episode we take a look at some facts, secrets, and history of Luigi. Luigi is was by Nintendo veteran Shigeru Miyamoto, and is portrayed as the fraternal twin brother of Mario. Luigi first appeared in the 1983 game Mario Bros, and reprised his role in Super Mario Bros, Super Mario Bros 3, and Super Mario World onward. The first game where he was available as a primary character was Super Mario Bros 2. Originally developed as a palette swap of Mario with a green color scheme instead of red, Luigi has since developed a personality and style of his own.
Metal Jesus & Kelsey share their TIPS & TRICKS for haggling at retro game stores, expos, garage sales & craigslist. Their years of game collecting AND store ownership offer a unique perspective on getting the best deal AND being respectful to the other party.
Garage sales are typically the easiest
Be nice & respectful
Know what is popular & what isn’t
Retail store prices have business expenses added
Slow selling games are sometimes easier to haggle with
Buy in bulk if possible
Politely point out cosmetic flaws
Engage seller in conversation
Flaws may already be factored into the price
Trading games sometimes is more valuable than cash!

I just want to say one thing: The path down which Metal Jesus Rocks wants to lead us is empty and bleak. For practical reasons, I have to confine my discussion to areas that have received insufficient public attention or in which I have something new to say. What I’m saying is this: Metal Jesus Rocks likes to argue that he can change his self-centered ways. Even if there were a faint glimmer of truth in that argument, it would be extremely faint. The truth is that whenever I highlight the threat of snippy Maoism in a letter such as this, Metal Jesus Rocks issues a standard response. First, he denies the threat itself. Then, he condemns those who describe him as a disrespectful fraudster. This is basically Metal Jesus Rocks’s way of encouraging humorless wallies to see themselves as victims and, therefore, live by alibis rather than by honest effort. Let me end by appealing to our collective sense of humanity: Metal Jesus Rocks and his associates are wolves in sheep’s clothing who will strip the world of conversation, friendship, and love in the coming days.
