SonSon NES Cart Finally Finished

Been kinda busy with things, but I managed to finally finish the label for SonSon. I kind of messed up cutting it a bit, but whatever, it’s my copy so I don’t care. I used the classic Capcom label style, a-la GunSmoke and 1942. I do plan on making an alternate label using the later Capcom label version such as on DuckTales and Rescue Rangers. Of course, if you are interested in purchasing on one of these carts, shoot me a message or send me $35 through paypal to gdraudt@gmail.com with your shipping address. I’ll knock $10 off that price if you send me a donor cart. Message me for possible donors.

Gamesquad Squad

gsscircuit

Our Twitch account has been successfully set up and we’ve got a few good episodes under our belts at this point. Hopefully some of you stop by and chat with us while we play. We’re welcome to any requests. Actually I’d happily take requests. It’s a chance to me to play some games that I’ve always wanted to but never really had the motivation to make happen. Plus Max is usually drunk and says stupid shit.

Anyway, we don’t have any sort of schedule set up yet. Our personal lives aren’t neatly scheduled, so it’s difficult to set up a gaming schedule. We’re trying to work something out though.

Starting up Twitch Soon

Going to be streaming on Twitch in the near future. Monica, my wife, has never played Final Fantasy 6 before and she has been playing through 7 lately, and much to my delight, she has no idea why people like the game so much. She is an RPG fan, and does like Final Fantasy, but she never owned the original PSX. So I had her play 7 since she always asks about it and asks why people consider that to be the magnum opus by Square. I couldn’t answer her. I always thought the story was stupid and convoluted to the point of disinterest. I cannot relate with the Cloud at all, not to mention I hate his hair (sure that may be a little superficial, but it looks dumb) and everyone goes all emo on you all the time and whines and complains about everything.  Before everyone hates me for saying these things, understand that I do not dislike FF7, it’s just not as good as everyone says it is. It’s not even top 3 in the franchise.  She’s almost done with disc 1, but is getting bored already. She asked me which one was the best then, and again I couldn’t answer her. But I said if she wants a really good story, then she needs to play 6. Compared to FF6, FF7 is donkey piss.

Hyrule Warriors is coming out Friday, so I plan on streaming that with Max. So other than Final Fantasy 6 and Hyrule Warriors, anyone have any requests? There’s a lot of good games out there I haven’t played myself and figured this would be a good chance to give them a go.

D-Pad Hero

I actually finished making this cart awhile ago, but I only just recently put together the video for it. If it looks like the game is hard, it’s not. Well, it’s not particularly easy either, but I make it look hard. I’m completely awful at things that require quick hand coordination.

Devil World

Just finished another cart – Devil World. I’m not sure what to make of this game. It’s kind of like Pac-Man, but lacks a certain something that you can only get with Pac-Man. On the other hand, you can turn enemies into fried eggs by breathing fire at them after picking up a cross…

Willford Brimley Battle Playthrough

Yes I know you can already check out this video on the NES Reproductions page, but I’m posting it here for the sake of completeness.

Anyway, this is Maximilyn and myself playing through Wilford Brimley Battle – a ROM hack of River City Ransom for the NES.

 

StarFox Cosplay Help

A friend of mine and myself are planning on doing some cosplay as Falco and Fox from StarFox. We both have zero experience in this field and a relatively nonexistent budget. Hoping to get some help here. Specifically, if anyone might have an extra fox, or blue avian head gear. They don’t even have to be good. Actually, it would be even better if they look like crap, just as long as they remotely resemble the characters from StarFox.

Looking to Purchase Video Games

Plans have been set in motion.

The great buying has begun.

I want your games.

Consoles, games, controllers, etc. With box, without box.

Contact me with what you have and I might be interested in purchasing it.

Unboxing – My First Video

This is my fist and last unboxing video. It pretty much expresses the absurdity of this trend. Now before anyone goes pointing fingers, I am fully aware of the irony of me making this video. I consider myself a bit of a tech whore and a collector, so I’m poking fun at myself as much as other nerds out there.
