I love that this game is getting the spotlight; if there's a follow up series where Ben and Jeff play the sequel in 2P mode, I'll be extremely happy.

I absolutely loved playing these games with my friends back in the day and didn't think I'd see it again! Haha! As someone else said, y'all playing Co-op in the sequel would be rad.

Man, I went to school for a semester in Takarasuka and near Nigawa Station there was this tiny little ramen place that was FANTASTIC. Pay $5 for a great bowl of ramen, and when you run out of noodles pay another $1 for another serving of noodles for your broth.

Alright Brad! Raw horse is my go-to at izakayas. A little shoyu and ginger is all you need.

What's the third new Jeff podcast Brad was talking about? I know of Ima Fix Wolves and All Systems Goku but I don't know what the third one is.

This video is about as long as it takes me to beat this game...

When will we see the Co-op for Adventures of the Mystical Ninja, or an Old Games where Jeff plays the four Mystical Ninja games for the SNES?

Yes Sherlock Holmes Consultant Detective is a board game with a big very detailed paper map of 'London' full of addresses and a newspaper that may contain relevant information to the case, witnesses you can ask things and a score of Sherlock Holmes to beat. It's playable by one or preferably multiple detectives thinking together.

I loved this game when I was younger. I don't remember any of the frustration, just the bizarre story.

This game was my first taste of Japan back in the day. It bamboozled me, but I had a great time.

Loving the fact that it's getting some screen time!

I feel like thai curry gets a bad rap because there are many more mediocre or bad thai restaurants than indian or japanese restaurants.

Even though I had not even heard of this game until this stream, I think I can pretty confidently tell Brad:

No, this was NOT an SNES launch game.

I knew about the Mr. Big part of "The Colors of Modern Rock" because I watch all the important streams on Twitch:

Tip for Ben, if it's wanted: the yellow dots on the map are doors. If you see a dot, but no room beyond it, you haven't been through that door yet.

(Getting the map item doesn't fill in the map in this game. It just gives you access to the map, that fills in as you explore)

This game is very obtuse. But I like it a lot! Thanks for sticking with it

@brad I too am a big fan of Jak and Daxter. It still holds up from the semi-recent Jak trilogy HD thing a while back.

I really love the way this game seamlessly transitions into different versions of the dungeon music the further you get into a dungeon.

God I want Jeff and Ben to be forced to do a Majora's Mask endurance run. Full mask run, all fairies, pure punishment.

Hey they might even come around on it
