Should You Buy a GameCube in 2017?

The Nintendo Gamecube is turning 16 this year. First released in 2001, it wasn't one of Nintendo's best selling consoles, but it has definitely earned a large following since. However, with the Nintendo Switch coming out soon and being rumoured to have Gamecube games on it's Virtual Console, it has to be asked: Is there still any reason to go out and buy a Gamecube (or even a Gamecube-compatible Wii) in 2017?

Is it even worth it to own a Nintendo Gamecube in 2017?

Thus, on today's episode, we're going to give you three reasons why to still buy a Gamecube, then counter each reason to show why you may want to pass on the little lunchbox. Is now a good time to get one, or would you be better off getting a Switch? Does it have a good enough library to still warrant a purchase? Find out on today's episode!

The BEST Pokémon Bootleg? Pokémon Green for NES! | SWPG

Bootleg games are unlicensed video games that are sold as if they were official parts of the series they aim to knockoff. They range from simple rom hacks to full fledged productions, but they tend to have a very low quality. In fact, many are hardly playable, if at all. Most seem to originate from China, Russia, or Mexico, and usually end up having little if anything to do with their source material.

Pokémon Green for the Nintendo Entertainment System (well, Famicom), is a bootleg meant to capitalize on the Game Boy game of the same name. Unlike most bootlegs, though, this one seems to be quite good. Is it truly worth your time? Does it have anything to actually do with Pokémon? And is it playable without knowledge of Japanese? Find out on today's Stuff We Play Gaiden review!

Donkey Kong 5: The Journey of Over Time and Space? | SWPG

Donkey Kong Country was first released in 1994 and is still beloved by many to this day. However, as a result of this massive popularity, bootlegs have been made in recent years, with most coming from China. This is one of those bootlegs.

Donkey Kong 5: The Journey of Over Time and Space is a Game Boy Color game that aims to bring the DKC experience to the handhelds, except not really. Besides, Donkey Kong Land already did that. It's a unique game that initially seems to want to try something new for Donkey Kong, but will it succeed at this Is this game any good? Can it hold a candle to Rare's Super Nintendo offerings? Find out on today's Stuff We Play Gaiden review!

Well, as we all know the real YouTube money lies with poorly researched theory videos. It might not be as good as something along the lines of Sans is Ness or Pokémon being rebooted, but this should do the trick and make me millions.

I'll remember all of you when we reach the top.


04-03-2017, 12:46 PM

New video out today, on what may be the worst Pokémon Bootleg ever made!

Pokémon Adventure: The WORST Pokémon Bootleg?

The Game Boy and Game Boy Color were popular among bootleggers. The massive popularity of these platforms led to many unofficial games to be created for them. Pokémon Adventure is one such game.

Not to be confused with the Pokémon Adventures manga, this game is based off an existing bootleg based off Sonic the Hedgehog, Pokémon Adventure seeks to bring a fast-paced adventure to the Game Boy Color. However, does it succeed at this? Is this game worth playing at all? Find out in today's Stuff We Play Gaiden review!

New discussion video out today on what truly defines a terrible game console!

What Makes a Terrible Game Console? | SWPG

While all game consoles have their respective pros and cons, some have gone down in history as the absolute worst. However, is this scorn deserved? What truly defines a gaming console as terrible?

In today's video, we seek to answer these questions. We take a look at platforms such as the Sega 32X, Nintendo Virtual Boy, 3DO, and Phillips 3Di and decide whether they're truly terrible, or merely just poorly remembered. In the process, we'll go over what truly defines a gaming platform as being great or terrible.

Why Sonic Forces Will Be Great!

Sonic Forces is a game that a lot of Sonic fans have become skeptical of. From it's return to the Sonic Generations play style to it's setting to, seemingly most damning of all, it's ability to create and play as your own character, most Sonic fans seem to be turning away from this game and focusing on the also upcoming (and also excellent looking) Sonic Mania. However, for many of the same reasons some people are turning away from it, we think that Sonic Forces looks like a lot of fun and will actually be a great game! Thus, today on SWPG, we're going over why Sonic Forces WILL be worth your time and money.

Featuring two often overlooked Sonic characters with vastly different play styles, S Factor seeks out to forge an identity of its own as a game. But does this rom hack succeed?

Desert Bus is part of the unreleased Sega CD game Penn and Teller's Smoke and Mirrors, and has the player drive a bus through the desert from Tucson, Arizona to Las Vegas, Nevada in real time.

But are there some redeeming qualities to this odd, unreleased game from the 90s? Find out on today's Halloween review as James and Rawman review Desert Bus.

Let's talk about YouTube demonetization. This widespread issue has been affecting YouTubers big and small, with its impact being harshest on those that use the platform either to make a living or to supplement their income. Not much is known about the bot that flags videos as "not suitable for advertisers", its own algorithm and how it affects the regular YouTube algorithm, or what makes it go off, thus James and Rawman performed an experiment to test it. If a channel that has been demonetized before uploads a video of a blank wall, will that still be flagged as offensive? Thus, on today's video, we go over how we tested the bot, the results of our experiment, questions we have to those in charge at YouTube, and some ways we think the platform could be improved.
