    I enjoyed the SMB2 video, but I have to wonder if he was using the keyboard or playing with one hand during most of the example video. How could a "gamer" be that bad?

    I don't know how I would be playing with a keyboard on an NES, so no, I am actually that bad. I guess I'm not a true "gamer" since every gamer is automatically pro at SMB2j their first playthrough

    As for the PCFX.... Sure, I'll review it! I will just need to own one first and that is the current problem.

    I haven't posted in this thread before, but I like the reviews a lot. I came across them on youtube and bookmarked them awhile ago, I didn't realize that they were posted here already. No idea how I missed them here for so long.

    Correct, still no partnership. Each time I apply I get rejected within an hour or two, always for the same reason: "Insufficient original content" or something like that.

    They're at least allowing me to post some ads here and there, which resulted in a few pennies rolling my way so far. Whoopty-doo.

    I really don't care, I'm having fun making the videos, the show's getting more and more popular and I'm meeting awesome people (and amazingly entertaining trolls). So I've no complaints!

    Jesus really? how much original content do they need?

    Do they mean that:
    1. you need more original videos (e.g. more videos), or
    2. you need more original content in your original videos

    Regardless, I'd think given your videos count, and the length and qualities of your videos, you'd be a shoe in.

    I was surprised lately when halfblindgamer was made a youtube partner and not you. Don't get me wrong, I love halfblindgamer's stuff (especially his CD-i stuff), but you've put out more videos lately by a margin.

    I really don't know what they're referring to, as there is no clarification as to what that means.

    I make a point to follow the rules and every single one of my videos are created entirely by me. I don't know how much more original they can get. And it can't be quantity, as I know partners with far less videos than me and who upload less frequently. And it's not viewer or sub count, I'm way beyond what many partners were when they got accepted. If you look at any listed requirements for the program, I surpass them all quite a bit.

    I've talked to several people who have entered into the partnership program with channels very similar to mine, and we all went through the same steps. Some channels get accepted with no problem, some like mine seem to get rejected endlessly with only an extremely vague reason.

    I've stopped applying altogether, as I see no point anymore. All this for what, custom thumbnails, a sub button and a banner on my front page? I just don't care enough to hassle with it.

    That's too bad. Having ads disables youtube's native html5 player, forcing the use of flash.

    I've watched it eariler the everdrive flashcart is very useful.I got one last year from tototek,since i gave up on waiting for stoneagegamer to get more of them.Though LGR forgets to mention the everdrive can double as a converter to play import sega-cd games.

    LGR is now youtube partner.

    Enjoyed your reviews since well "Ah the Sega CD"

    I know your more of a PC gamer but I like when u get into actual console hardware reviews every once in a while.

    If you could give a shoutout sometime to ReaXan from Digitpress next time you do a console hardware review that would be awesome!

    Best Wishes

    I wish hed give JRPG's a shot, but his background in 80's computer games I guess made him be raised on certain types of games. Oh well. I loved his Sega CD, System Shock reviews and the 3DO one too.

    I didn't realize phreakindee was LGR...

    I never miss any of your LGR Thrifts videos and generally watch most of your videos.

    sorry for the bump but wanted to pay my 5 year respects to the guy.

    Its unbelievable how huge his channel has become. I am very happy for him. He is like the guru for DOS and retro computer related gaming stuff it seems.

    Check him out if you havent already.
