PlayStation Underground was the best. I was kinda sad that Dan & Drew were making fun of it so much in the first five minutes, but they really came around to appreciate it for what it was at the time.

This is gonna be Diesel? Great! Always thought Big Kev got a bad rap.

PC Gamer had the best demo discs back in the day, with weird, secret filled menus but these were essential back when we didn't have easy ways of seeing game videos and demos.

Does this PSU disc also have a hidden korn music video on it like mine does?

The debut of a Demo Derby draws me to dancing! Like so: http://i.imgur.com/c7xQmjf.gif

Man, Playstation.com had it going on for wicked-awesome late-90s merchandise.

Not once during the 90's did I ever refer to anything as "Diesel".

Omega Boost is rad. That is all.

It's gonna be Big Daddy Cool? Can't wait.

I had Evil Zone when I was a kid. It was straight diesel.

I may be going deaf or something but does the GT2 translator sound like the translator from the gamescom mgs5 trailer?

Oh god Dan just claimed Five Guys has a better burger than In-N-Out, his heel turn is complete.

TWO HOURS OF DEMO DERBY?! Excellent. I too have fond memories with the Jampacks. It's crazy how in-depth they got, footage like that didn't exist anywhere before these. It was like G4 before G4 crashed and burned.

And man, I want that Crash Bandicoot pullover jacket. And I'm loving the Drew/Dan football chat.

Holy Christ, I distinctly remember playing the Tiny Tank demo from this Underground disk when I was 5...

Diesel as fuuuuuck, yo.

I kind of wish Jeff was in on a couple of these videos too. I'd love to hear his insight on some of this stuff.

Ape Escape is a great series which should really get a new main series game.

Ape Escape and Ape Escape 2 are rippin' diesel man!

:diesel

I hope Drew does Dragula karaoke on camera at some point. Maybe even together with fancy lads Dan and Danny.

Oh man. Omega Boost looks legit amazing. Will have to track down a copy.

Also, I kick myself frequently when I think about all the cool Parappa and Lammy swag I could have bought.

Oh my god, you guys. This site is so fucking diesel now.

Oh man I loved omega boost!! the box art is real bad though.

Edit: wow that "R you okay?" brought back a flood of memories

Dan And Drew are the best!

Edited by Homelessbird

I had a friend who, around 2009, unironically referred to things as "cock diesel" for an unknown reason.

He is now, no joke, a movie star.

Hilarious

How do they not realize they're trying 3.2 codes on the 3.3 issue? It was clearly marked, and having the codes on the same issue doesn't even make sense (granted, these were weird...). Oh, well.

Also they didn't recognize Andrew House in the creditz?

Edited by MachoFantastico

Man I miss these sorts of demo discs. This era of Playstation was amazing.

I went to E3 in 1999. PS2 was there, but, wasn't playable.

Edited by makkuwata

Dan actually played some Pac-Man 2 but seems to have blocked it from his memory.

He did not care for it very much.

That ugly ass Project WormHole: How To Make a Game menu looks like it's straight out of Space Giraffe.

This is actually fascinating.

What the fuck am I doing.

Posted by Tirion

This is great. Seeing everything on the disc and not only the demos really are like opening a time capsule.

Posted by Oscar__Explosion

They need to find that kid that won the playstation truck for the day.

Edited by goliath553

The Combination of Dan with Drew Is like mixing a fine scotch with Coke Zero (the result of which still tastes good). I'll let you figure out who each beverage represents.

Edited by Oscar__Explosion

@warpig87: I love you so much for that image.

Edited by Roger_Klotz

That Playstation truck is pretty diesel bro.
