The image of Jeff hunched over a Vectex in the background of the vid is insanely Godlike.

Never change, Big Jeffrey.

Have a Vectrex stream! And not some dumb emulator stuff. Just point a dang camera at it!

The miracle berry stuff was totally on a Whiskey Media Happy Hour, right? The Tested guys played with some.

Gotta love those smooth vector graphics! I am the proud owner of a vectrex(its like 6 years older than me :D) and also VERY proud owner of a numbered vector pilot cart, fucking nr.500 out of 500. Its probably the only rare videogame thing I own despite having a huge collection. So lucky I just happened to have bought the last copy from the developer, Its a really awesome vectrex 'port' of time pilot. Maybe even the best game on vectrex.

Beserk and Scramble are pretty awesome as well on the vectrex. And Kristof Tuts, developer of vector pilot is currently working on a amazing(!!!) looking port of moonpatrol.

I'm personally still looking for Fortress of Narzod and Star Trek (or whatever they called it here in europe) complete for a reasonable price. Any of the weird peripherals would be awesome to own as well, theres this really spacy pen that turns your vectrex in a touchscreen and man..... I just love the whole vibe of that machine, those graphics , screen overlays and that constant buzzing sound it emits, just lovely! All heil the vectrex.

Am I the only one who noticed Dan has the gif of Kevin Nash lawn-darting Rey Mysterio into a trailer looping on his monitor?

Probably just me.

I also noticed that. The wrestling desk is looking good!

Had no idea this Mailbag would have a good chunk of video dedicated Jason chugging different sauces, which was great.

It makes me smile seeing Dan and Jason praise Mr. Bones on the Sega Saturn. I wonder what kind of demo Mr. Bones would have since that game has numerous levels with a different gameplay styles. For instance, one level transition has you go from a platforming level to guitar rhythm level. Not kidding.

Damn, Jason! I love Sweet Baby Ray's too, but that was... let's go with "brave".

I'm surprised Brad went for it. I think Dan's Dan-ness is starting to become contagious.

I'm glad people aren't working in the background as they slam a bottle of bbq sauce to help pour it into a man's mouth so he can consume the entire bottle in one sitting for five dollars.

Giant bomb is the best!

Also, RIP Jason

I remember this! Really fucked with Norm, as he was blindfolded while trying stuff. Trying to find the video.

@amyggen:Damn, I know that happened and I still didn't realize. It never even occurred to me since the UPF set looks so similar to me.

That Vectrex ::swoon:: Makes me want to get one for my cube at work. Damn expensive on Ebay, though. Not surprising.

Wonder if anyone makes a nice vector monitor I could hook up to a rPi...

Lol I saw it immediately, Super excited when Jeff was setting up the Vectrex. (I have one that's alive and kicking. Beautiful self contained machine.) But seeing @danryckert is watching one of the best moments of NWO's take over of WCW. It was when there were still some wrestlers trying to resist the NWO but ultimately get beaten down. The part where El Rey Mysterio looked like he was going to get the dropped on Kevin Nash but ended up getting destroyed was when I hated and loved the NWO the most.

Fun Fact: in middle school my friend drank an entire bottle of BBQ sauce in one sitting. Then she felt super sick/ had horrible stomach pain a couple days later. Turns out almost instantly gave her a stomach ulcer. Have fun, Jason!
