Love the de-de-de-de-de-demo derby as alwa-wa-wa-ways! Bummer about the dirty disc, but it was swiftly fixed.

45:56 Jeff on demos not loading: "I don't know if we've ever encountered this specific issue"

It literally happened in the PREVIOUS EPISODE!

Are these released out of order or are they that forgetful?

Andy House's name is all over these PlayStation demos. Assuming it's the same guy he's been in the trenches forever.

According to Wikipedia, he joined Sony Computer Corporation back in 1990 and transferred to SCEI's marketing and communications in 1995 for the launch of the Playstation.

New episode already? Early birthday present!

This wasn't quite as diesel as the earlier ear PS demo discs, but still great! Wish that audio/video hitching would've happened more during some of the videos.

My memories of that logitech wireless controller are that it was pretty dang great and that I only had to change the batteries in it like twice despite using it constantly, wonder what Jeff didn't like about it.

Also I can't wait until Jeff gets into Gundam, i'm not gonna demand/badger about it...but All Systems Gundam would be a pretty good name...

Here to voice my opinion that Auto Modellista was very arcade-y. Wasn't it actually an arcade game as well? Game would've been great if it weren't for the complete garbage arcade-y handling/gameplay.

Oddly enough, during this whole video I was sitting here messing with my PS2 organizing save files/memory cards and popped Auto Modellista in to check something.

Just like the new Jurassic Worlds and Ghostbusters, the new Star Wars are perfectly fine and serviceable modern blockbusters. But big fans of some of the greatest genre films of all time are inevitably going to be let down when the follow ups are just "perfectly fine". It shows the studio had nothing else in mind but safely making money. After coasting by on bland scripts written by committee for two movies with plots that barely hold together after the dozens of rewrites, people are starting to wake up off the high of Star Wars being back and realizing these movies are no more worth seeing than Skyscraper or The Meg.

Another vote here for the Logitech PS2 wireless controller being awesome.

Also, Christina Ricci was Wednesday Addams, Ben.

One of my coworkers is a Fullsail graduate from just a couple years ago. They're still doing the thing.

That thing being giving you good industry training for music production, video production, and video game programming/design/art/sound, but not giving you a real accredited degree, and being a little expensive.

Do you think Camp Woodward would accept a 32 year old man with no x-treeme sports skills, on the grounds that I want to flip into foam?

This was such a good Demo Derby. I’m not sure why, but it was. Very chill and Jeff was in full-on gaming historian mode.

OMG, Juiced, not sure it's good now, but when I was like 10 or something I loved Juiced, still have a PC retail copy. Had some really cool crew mechanics and stats from what I remember.

Say what you will about the state of boxing in 2018 -- The Knockout Kings/Fight Night games are some of my favorite games I played growing up. I even played the career mode in Fight Night Round 4 a couple of times through within the past 6 months. There's just something about the weight of the punches in that game when you really connect that make it feel so good.

I have Stolen on a shelf, but I've never played it. I think it's going to continue to sit on my shelf. I got it for $2 at a pawn shop about a year ago.
