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.

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.
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.
I have captured over 40 years worth of game play footage beginning with the Atari 2600 to Nintendo SNES to Genesis to Playstation and XBOX. But also handhelds, Macs, Windows PCs and mobile devices like iOS and Android. Here are all the secrets that you can use on your YouTube channel or in your next video stream!
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!
The Biggest gaming loser gets the dreaded Trophy of Shame in this competition between Metal Jesus, Drunken Master Paul and his wife Liz. We play a motorcycle racing game with the crappy Playstation Glove as well as the infamous Barbie’s Horse Adventures on the original XBOX.
Warning: This video contains swearing, drinking and references to Donkey Shows. It may not be suitable for young children. Although, let’s be honest: if they have access to the internet and YouTube, they’ve probably seen much worse 😉
Behind the Scenes: As you might imagine, we don’t plan out anything on these I HATE U episodes. Paul & Liz showed up knowing almost nothing about what was planned, so we setup 3 cameras and a laptop to capture the footage and then just press Record. What you see on screen is pretty much what happened. No second takes… no script. As you can imagine, 3 cameras capturing HD video and audio for about an hour creates a HUGE file to edit. All told with all the temp files, my Final Cut project was over 300GB!!
What makes these videos fun to produce is the green screen interview B-Roll that we shoot AFTER we played the games. Basically we ask each other “What were you thinking when Metal Jesus brought out the Barbie game?” “Why did you think you were going to win the motorcycle game?” etc… Those moments are nice to mix into the video because they help the flow of the video but also help cut down what was essentially 1 hour of gameplay to around 15 minutes of highlights. Also Liz was incredibly silly that night and gave me a TON of wacky footage to mix into the video.
As for the Jar Jar Jar… make sure and watch the previous I HATE U episode with John Hancock where we play the Star Wars Jar Jar board game…and then light it on fire! (linked here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7N0NNHMMeA8)
