The talk about rapping and stuff comes from a stream Ryan did from his ustream account. It was basically Ryan rapping and singing various songs (folk versions of rap songs to start with), while Vinny played the guitar. Turns out, they are both pretty good. I tuned in a bit late, so i don't know how it started, but Ryan was holding a glass of wine, so i believe alcohol was involved. 
 
Of course, I can't prove anything.
 
EDIT: Cause Ryan apparently didn't archive it. (It was this one, ominously called Folk Rap

I'm still waiting for Microsoft to announce pricing details on additional floors for your GameRoom. I am going to guess 400 points for an additional three floors.

" Wheres Ryan? I mean I don't care who I get when it comes to Quick Looks. In fact Jeff and Vinny are my favourite team but I thought it was Jeff and Ryan for games room? "
I thought Brad was on a Gameroom QL once.

Wow...Starcraft 2 sounds sweet!

Here's a bit of fun: let's all imagine how much of a douchey loser you have to be to use a turbo controller on an old arcade game and sit there for however long it takes to glitch the game into giving you a high score.
 
EDIT: The beeping sound from asteroids is the exact same as my second UPS. I instinctively looked away from the screen towards my other desk every time it happened to check if my alarm clock still had power. Weird.

Gameroom is Jeff and one of the three

That jail break high-score-er is a douche 

Posted by Sarumarine

I love Jeff and Game Room videos. They're like the new a feature.

Posted by LeBart

Game Room quick looks are starting to look like mini-podcasts. That's awesome.

I remember playing Decathlon back in the day. I loved it and thought it was really cool that it actually required endurance and was hard work to play. Even as a kid, I thought that was cool.  Definitely going to buy this.
 
I also played a TON of Asteroids for the 2600, but I don't remember it having colored asteroids. I guess I'm remembering wrong? The music and sound effects are definitely the same though.

FFFFUUUUUUUUUUUU... . . .. .JAILBREAK!
Buying now. Oh man, shirtless Batman in a barrel is still awesome!  SHIRTLESS-BARREL BATMAN.
Also you should report that 1500 meters to Girl.

Posted by PLWolf

Awesome! 2600 Asteroids is the first game I flipped the score. Love that game to this day.

Decathalon, the 2600 joystick destroyer! 
 
Oh man I loved Frostbite too, never been so many 2600 games I used to have on game room.

Dude, thats how ppl got high scores, by gliching the game. I have personaly never seen anyone get a high score on an arcade machine without gliching or "cheating" in someway. Also, I'm pretty sure he didn't buy a turbo controller just to play Jail Break. And who is the bigger loser? The guy who cheats his way to the top score with ease or the guy that spends a long ass time learning the ins and outs of the game just to get a high score.
Posted by Shibbles

Oh my god, Decathlon is crazy. I want it.

Posted by CustardArmy

thank god for these game room QL, means i never have to boot that thing up every week.

What an endurance run...

Posted by phantomzxro

Does any one else use game room? It sounds like a cool idea until your paying 2 to 3 dollars on all these games when you can find a lot of these free online.

"That beep in asteroids made me look at the phone every single time. "


i hear you i could not play this game it sounds are all from house hold items. i would always think my phone is ringing or the microwave is done.    
Posted by MrMcgillicutty

Acoustic versions of rap songs can be really good if done right.
 

  As for Game Room: I wonder if Microsoft is trying to sweep this under the rug. I mean, they haven't gotten any new companies to emulate classic games.

Woah, the second that Asteroids came up...mad flashbacks.

@teekomeeko:
My sister's husband imported two turbo controllers from korea or some east asian country for track & field on XBLA.

Jeff knows what's up.  Rapping and guitar!  WE HAVE PROOF!

Gameroom - Starcraft II edition.  Awesome.

It had colored Asteroids.  The RF Switch on the 2600 had a Color and a Black and White setting, maybe you had yours set to B&W?

" Im quite surprised they haven't put out a Yar's Revenge or Zaxxon. I don't know if they put out Q-Bert or Mappy yet either. If not. They should.  I also remember this one game as a kid on the 2600 called Plaque Attack. Played that game for hours. "
Yar's Revenge was in Game Pack 1, you know?
Edited by buzz_clik

2600 Asteroids and Defender are two of the worst arcade conversions ever committed to cartridge.
 
EDIT: Good call with Blue Max, Vinny. And that kid in Jail Break sounds like a peacock.

Man... I wish that Microsoft had killed Game Room instead of 1 vs 100. I may not enjoy these crappy games but at least we are getting some fun QLs.

Posted by Nick

Wow I used to have Auto Racing lol, that brings back some memories.
Posted by dagas

That beeping sound in Asteroids reminds me of the Dreamcast VMU.

Posted by Kajaah117

You know Game Room is a failure when the top scorer for Asteroids apparently quit the game out of sheer boredom.

Posted by glanesb

Man, I went Ape-shit when Asteroids came out for Atari 2600. I remember sitting on the subway coming home from school and this Asian kid kept taking it out of his bookbag....gawking in delight. It was all the rage through gradeschool in NYC. He was talking with his friends and he put it down on the seat forgetting about it while his friends were telling the latest joke in Cantonese........the subway "DONG' singled the next stop. He collected his bookbag forgetting the ASTEROIDS BOX?!...HOLY SHIT I thought.....he got up and walked out the door........the door closed...I grabbed the game of life.....I thought about getting off the next stop and backtracking to where he got off..CANAL STREET Chinatown......I did not... Do I feel bad looking back?!?!?!  Sorry kid....I do not.

Still own everyone.

Game Room Quick Looks are my favorite.

Posted by Blkthorne

Should be some interesting quick looks for Pack 8, its been posted on the xbox forums that there is no arcade games to be found, only 2600/INTV games, sure hope Jeff enjoys 3D Tic-Tac-Toe.

Haha. You're fix of my statement is also true, but I think we can all agree Game Room needs to get some more publishers or more consoles to emulate in the next few weeks to stay alive.

The background noise sounds like Jaws is about to attack.

Posted by fynne

OMG.  Why is MS releasing all these lame 2600/Intellivision ports.  MAME makes this look like amateur hour.  I can't believe anyone (besides reviewers like Jeff) are buying this stuff.

Posted by glanesb

it's all about nostalgia...plain simple....bring us back to the days when we used our imaginations to fill in the pixels
