Metal Jesus here, and I’m back again, this time with an update to my channel that I’m really excited about, and that is I’m going to be adding closed captioning or transcriptions to many of my bigger videos. I’m gonna start with the Friday videos. But this is something I’ve been wanting to do for a while now, because, well, in my family, I actually have an aunt who is deaf. And also I know some people who are in the gaming community, especially here in Seattle, who are deaf. And so it’s something I’ve been wanting to do for a while, but bigger than that, actually, is that there are a lot of people who watch YouTube videos and my videos where perhaps English is not their first language. And so having the text transcribed down below accurately is a big bonus for them.

Metal Jesus: Metal Jesus here, and I am back with Kinsey.
Kinsey: Hello, and today we are going to be talking about a buyer’s guide for the original Xbox. So that’s accessories, hardware and some of our favorite games.
Metal Jesus: Let’s take a look. All right so let’s start with the hardware and again this is meant to be sort of a buying guide, in case you’re out at a garage sale, or a pawn shop and you just kind of want to know what to get into if you’ve never actually owned an original Xbox.
Kinsey: And this guy, is the original Xbox.
Metal Jesus: Yes.
Kinsey: It’s one of the first consoles that has an internal hard drive.
Metal Jesus: I believe it was a 10 GB drive, but you had like 8 GBs available to you, but actually it’s funny you just reminded me, is that I was watching a podcast where they were talking, it was the original creators of the Xbox, and one of the really interesting things is that it’s because they put a hard drive in here that games like Halo were even possible.
Kinsey: That’s crazy, yeah.
