    Seriously this guy is a good reviewer so I wanted to give him a shout out here.

    He has a laid back and humerous style of reviewing and good production values compared to all the AVGN clones.

    Yeah, this guy has some good reviews. His VIC-20 review is good, as well as his RealSports review. He also reviewed a few DOS games too.

    At first I didn't want to watch this. I hadn't realized that there are TONS of wannabe "reviewers" out there. Most of the people are just peopl that have a bunch of games and want to show off and talk about them but this guy is pretty decent. I like the fact that he talks about some lesser known stuff and has a decent knowlege of them and even goes into emulation and how that is for whatever. Good stuff, I subscribed.

    There's really nothing special about that - it's pretty much the standard for "Let's Play" type stuff, everybody does it now. People playing on real equipment are in the minority now.

    Hasty edit: This is not a sign of disapproval for this particular rev'r; of my two favorite funny Youtube reviewers, one (Rob aka xoxak) uses original systems and I assume expensive video equipment, while the other (DeceasedCrab) uses emulation. Most of the others whose videos I check now and then use emulation (besides Twiddle, who records off his 360 for his Raiden Fighters Aces reviews).

    Ugh, that Kings of the Beach review is just awful. It's an underrated game with some potentially funny flaws, but he chose to ignore all that and focus on the "i'm bad at volleyball IRL, i have no friends, look how hard it is to spike, look at the crazy graphics on the box" aspect.

    It's not hard AT ALL to get the controls down. It's like someone reviewing a Mario game and saying "oh god those bullet bills are just impossible, look how crazy everything is"

    He doesn't use emulation but he points out whether there is emulation for it and if there is he points out anything worth noting like as if the sound doesn't work properly with emulation or if it's possible to put a game on a disc and play it on the system and what to use if you want to find out. Nothing major but I just like the fact that emulation actually exist in his world.

    I agree that the Kings of the Beach review wasn't that great. However, I have enjoyed several of his previous videos. It's mostly his dry humor, where he sounds a little apathetic but still has good timing with his comments that I appreciate. I hope he keeps posting new stuff.

    Yeah that Kings of the Beach got a bit "angry". I like how he compared the two versions though.

    He sounded a little under the weather in his latest video and the beach theme didn't quite work as well as it could have. It was funny seeing him start digging in the sand for a game and I wish he would have carried that bit further. Finding cool stuff in sand is always funny to me because it goes back to that Pete and Pete episode where they find a car burried in the sand.

    Compared to all the 35 year old basement cases putting their nerdy voice over a game (which, to me, wrecks the fun) this guy is a genius.
