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!
