Oh man this is going to be great.

RIP Game Room, Long Live Game Room

Posted by KyleBsure

Sadly, I've really been looking forward to this.

Any word on the PS1, PS2 backwards compatibility patch that is obviously total bullsh*t but I keep hoping for it because I'm an asshat?

Game Room was such a crazy idea. Those videos were the best!

Fun fact… I'm pretty sure that Ninja Kun/Ninja Kid is the inspiration for Ninja Robot Haggle Man from Retro Game Challenge.

I hope this is as bad as Game Room.

The crowd in Exciting Hour is pretty great apart from Vader there is Superman in the top right edge and weirdly enough a dude with what looks like a Einstürzende Neubauten Shirt (a german industrial band).

Also the Acropolis Background in Bomb Jack is appropriate because the site was used as a ammo depot in the 17th century.

Where is my "Dan and Jeff play through the pantheon of wrestling video games" series of videos?

Make it happen.

$50 for all of these? Jeff either makes more money than God, or expenses everything everywhere at all times. Well, I guess he could have poor impulse control and shoddy money management skills too, but it's probably one of the first two.

This is Jeff's new Game Room, and it's glorious.

Jeff is known for spending a lot of money on the dumbest gaming-related shit. He bought a lifetime subscription to the Star Trek MMO without really playing the game, he bought literally every game that came out on Game Room (which probably says something about how he'll spend his money here). I think he also bought one of those dumb Playstation TVs, or whatever Sony called them, without using it. The list goes on and on and on.

@amyggen: Don't forget the time he dropped $100 on Gears of War weapon skins during a video.

...and if you have a good accountant (or are willing to dive into it yourself) you can write at least some of the dumb purchases off as work expenses...

@kylebsure:No word on that. I know PS Now is a big deal and moneymaker (beta prices are loopy since beta of course) but if they put a quite accurate and compatible PS1/PS2 emulator in the PS4 that took discs that would be like the largest warm hug to gamers in history of gaming. It's something I think modern day Sony can do, it's something I want them to do, it would make sense. Even if it was a one-time purchase for the emulator.

But I'm happy these exist, dangit. There's the chance of them taking the actual good Konami late 80's 90's arcade games they ported to the PS4. Expect two games a month.

So, is this the new Game Room then?

When I saw "Japanese arcade titles" I dumbly got my hopes up that there'd somehow be some really awesome old shooters or something in here.

Rygar and Wonder Boy are okay, I guess.

Given that Video-Games-Are-Jeff's-Job, I'm fairly confident that CBSi foots the bill for most of Jeff's at-work, work-related expenses. There HAVE been a few times, though, where Jeff has basically exclaimed, "My God, I spent my own money for this garbage!" ;)

EDIT: Such as this very video: "Yeah, I wouldn't pay $8 for this. Oh wait, I DID!"

I believe Jeff's said before that he expenses some of it, but not nearly as much as he probably should. He pays for a lot of stuff out of his own pocket.

I, uh...

I kinda really liked the PS2 Rygar.

Is this Sony Room Game?

Edited by racebelly

Crazy Climber is in my top 5 arcades games of all-time. Once you get the hang of the controls it's great.

If you hold down and both sticks while your in a window the pots will bounce off your head.

At least Jeff can turn a profit from selling skylanders.

I loved Mat Mania as a kid, played it all the time in the local laundromat!

Posted by tescovee

lol i want to watch and hear @dan play meatboy or vvvv

Posted by BlackLagoon

Someone should tell Jeff there's a whole section on US PSN with imported, untranslated Japanese PSOne games. Money Puzzle Exchanger (or rather Money Idol Exchanger) and one of those Crazy Climber sequels are amongst them.

The return of Game Room!

Posted by soupbones

Just for the record, Wonderboy is the O.G. - not that poser Higgins.

Bought all of these as well - only weak one in the pile is Crazy Climber (because of the controls). FYI, @jeff FYI: Wonderboy has a scan line option, where the others don't. I think. It's Japanese.

That's actually a brilliant idea for a series. Kinda reminds me of when Brad and Ryan went and played all the Olympic games.

Anyways, I second the idea!

Edited by djames216

Wow. I'd completely forgotten about Bombjack. I haven't played that since the 80s on the Speccy.

Oh man! I actually forgot that happened. Was it really 100$? Those were just supremely dumb. Perfect material to poke fun at for GB.

I believe I can see part of Popeye as well (look for the sailor suit and beefy forearm).

While that Ninja Kun game looks terrible Super Ninja Kun is one of the best non-Mario platformers on the SNES. More people should get to enjoy that game.

According to Dan's rigorous calculations, 6x8=48.

Money well spent, JEF (doing my part to get your name out there).

Giant Bomb could do a lot with some of the PS1 and PS2 classics on PSN.
