So this is his next "Skylanders moment" isn't it in terms of insane money spending sprees? I wish I was able to do crazy shit like that out of the blue...or maybe not.

Being on the sidelines watching the insanity is probably more preferable, right? Personally, I hope this really happens.

@Colourful_Hippie: It is absolutely preferable to watch from the outside. When you're inside, it's nice for a while, but you eventually find yourself with an empty wallet and an even emptier soul.

Magical Chase will make it happen. I hope they do this so much. The TG-16 was my only system growing up and it never gets love.

#6 Edited by Indiana_Jenkins (387 posts) -

I'm hoping against hope that CBSi will expense this or that a sealed copy of Magical Chase is worth a fortune. I want all of them to go. And with no trade show to distract them...

Old/obscure video games, capsule toys, airsoft assault rifles, Brad "anime editor" Shoemaker, antiques roadshow appraisal of Magical Chase, Storage Wars style wheeling and dealing, reckless spending, giant three liter beers, and beef bowls all happening in a 48 hour, sleep deprived Japanese adventure in Tokyo.

The greatest smash and grab in history.

Plus, they could bring back the drink tasting segment.

New country = New Drinks

Was that you who made that call or were you the Megan's Law guy?

@Indiana_Jenkins I know they wouldn't do it because of the tech that's needed but end of day livestreams of just nonsense would be the best!

Oh my God, this made me laugh way more than it should have. Anywho, I love Jeff's terrible ideas but I don't think there's any guarantees this one will actually happen. Also, I would love to play an arcade game called Jeff's Tokyo Raid.

Jeff, what do you think about Megan's Law?

I don't even know what is going on in here.

RAID RAID RAID

Can someone Photoshop Jeff into the promo art for The Raid Redemption

#17 Posted by Aegon (5484 posts) -

I somehow was distracted during the magical chase talk on the podcast. Can someone tell me when they started talking about it?

#18 Posted by RenMcKormack (1074 posts) -

I HAVE A SOLUTION

Its done supermarket sweep style

All the guys go

they have 3k in NCIS money each. Or they have to wear like CBS Sports jackets (there's your ad money BOOM)

Vinny,Drew and SOME INTERN follow them around with cameras

at the end of the time the users judge who got "the most" out of their money in Japan.

Jeff's Tokyo panty raid?
#22 Posted by Seppli (10251 posts) -

'The Raid' has to happen, but I have to insist on a livestreamed 'Soapland' detour.

#23 Edited by familyphotoshoot (653 posts) -

I wonder how much more useless crap Jeff will have to buy and pack away in his garage before he realizes that it's not going to make him happier.

Isn't it a little early in the day to be that harsh on people?
#25 Posted by Brodehouse (9841 posts) -

I spent 800 bucks on old games this summer.

I'm sure I'll feel better about it 10 years from now.

More Giant Bomb Travelogues, yes please.

#29 Posted by WalkerTR77 (1356 posts) -

I'm imagining frenetic footage of Jeff hitting the streets of Tokyo HARD intercut with Ryan at his computer, laconically trawling ebay SMASH CUT back to Jeff sprinting around with fistfuls of cash in hand and a duffle bag full of utter nonsense.

The difference is Jeff can finance the Raid with that 5000+ dollar game. I financed it with basically an entire paycheque. And I don't think I have anything worth more than a hundred bucks. I think my (open) boxed copy of Chrono Trigger might be the best I got. Or maybe some sealed SMT games.

This Tokyo raid will make this quirky site with interesting personalities into the best site of all time with the most insanely awesome crew ever. They will have secured all our premium memberships till the end of times. Dare I say it, it will go down as the dumbest (in a good way) thing game journalists have ever done on video.

Really? I have no trouble with that at all.

But yeah, for now I'll settle for a rating on that Magic Chase game. The perceived value of that blew my mind.

You guys really shouldn't be encouraging Jeff's addictions like this.

Yeah I was the penultimate caller that Happy Hour, and called in claiming to be Jeff's parole officer.

He's not wrong.

#35 Posted by ImmortalSaiyan (4676 posts) -

I really want to see this come to fruition. It is happens and ends up being sub only content I will buy a sub so I can watch it. It is just such a crazy idea it would be potentially fantastically entertaining to watch.

#36 Posted by fox01313 (5069 posts) -

Will be interesting to see, would have been better to think up all this space madness earlier in the year to try to tie it to a GB/Gamespot trip to Japan for TGS coverage this year then Jeff & the crew could have stayed a day or two more for whatever hijinks they want.

The fact that this is being talked about AFTER TGS makes it even more perfect and desperate..like a man with nothing left to lose.

That dude is a man on a mission now, there's nothing stopping him....besides the first step to overcoming addiction is to admit you have the problem and succumbing to it...wait what
#39 Posted by Piqued_Interest (63 posts) -

Needs to happen.

When he mentioned it on the podcast I imagined the 8-4 folks walking into their office in the morning to find a passed out Jeff sleeping amidst piles of TG-16 games.

#40 Edited by Laurentech (127 posts) -

This could potentially be the best thing to happen on GB in quite a while. <3

#41 Posted by punkxblaze (2971 posts) -

So who wants to make a River City Ransom clone called Jeff's Tokyo Raid.

#42 Posted by ArbitraryWater (11613 posts) -

I really want to see this happen, and not just because the resulting live stream where they play a bunch of bad Turbografix games will be stupidly entertaining.

#43 Posted by Sweep (8841 posts) -

I have this weird image of Jeff running around Tokyo like some surreal episode of Supermarket Sweep.

I'm so glad this is the first response in the thread.

This raid needs to happen, be it from dirty CBSi money, Jeff's own pocket or a Kickstarter. It sounds like the best idea ever.

#45 Posted by amardilo (118 posts) -

I would really like to see Jeff and the rest of the GB crew go to Tokyo and get some games as well as the other stuff they could get up to over there (maybe make some more videos with 8-4).

Going to Tokyo and buying up a bunch of crazy games is actually something I've wanted to do myself for a while but right now I don't have the funds to do it (flight, hotel and spending money on games all builds up to what would be a very expensive trip) and even if I did I wouldn't know where to start or what places to go in Tokyo to get some cool retro games.

If they do go through with it I hope they record it and share tips on what to do and where to go.

#46 Posted by supamon (1333 posts) -

Really hope this comes to actual fruition and it is all filmed on camera. It would rival Drew's North Korea trip!

#47 Posted by Colourful_Hippie (4337 posts) -

@Sweep: The same music needs to be playing when Jeff does that.

That show is so awesomely bad. I forgot it even existed.

#49 Posted by talljack (64 posts) -

I'm going to Tokyo in January. Crossing my fingers to see this raid with my own eyes. Or at least the aftermath for some hot tips on shopping.
