  1. Yup everything so expensive now just bought both the suffering games for $60 before they run up in value 😔 all I wanted to do was replay them and play the sequel for the first time ever

  2. If you're going to release a reissue of a retro cartridge why not release a loose version? Lots of people still collect loose and to me that would be a better option than CE. I don't want to pay extra for box, manual, etc. Anybody else?

  3. Totally wish I had that 8000$ special edition box that comes with the grandma ,fresh baked cookies for days..

  4. It is nice to see Rob man back on the show. He and Johnny always have the best conversations.

  5. Yeah, it's a fine done deal but in a sense it's kinda like revealing a new console like when Neo Geo came out or Turbo Grafx 16 came out of no where! Were waiting on a new console and game exploration in different concepts!

  6. Yup it sure does, mostly thanks to people like yourself, Metal Lindsay, John Liecock and other select deranged people on YT 🤣

  7. Absolutely right on almost everything guys, except emulation is complete trash! I would not recommend anyone try a game for the first time on emulation, ever. You would never know if you're getting an accurate representation of the original game or not. Regardless of the quality of the emulator there will always be compromises, and for anyone who takes gaming seriously you shouldn't have to deal with that. If you want to try some games out and don't want to spend any cash, burn yourself a disc or an use an everdrive like device for cart based games. Try it on original hardware before deciding if you want to drop the money on a nicer reproduction copy or the original if its in your budget.

  8. Not sure if that was a critique to Xenoblade Definitive Works collector’s edition but I actually liked that one a lot. The art book is huge with cutscene sketches, every outfit for every character and it was released for a bit more than $100 CAD by then (even though now you might have to pay $300-350 lol).

  9. Everything evolves. It's just the way of the world.

  10. Yeah Video Game Collecting does suck now. Because you have scumbags on this Platform such as MJR, Radical Reggie, John Hancock and lets not forget Petedorr. Who scam their audiences out of huge amounts of money when they can easily afford things themselves, inflate prices because they say its worth something or just simply do not deliver on Promises.

  11. Pc gaming and old hardware for computer same deal. Bigger names like ultima, wizardry, might and magic always costed a bit. However now most pc games are a blood bath. And the fakes.

  12. I also remember seeing old hardware and games in salvation army or good will. Those never see the floor of good wills now and immediately go on their auction site and it sucks! I had to sell my TG16 and a BUNCH of my old games when I was fresh out of college. It was a bad time for me financially and it wasn't like I was collecting, these were just things I had kept from my youth. I would love to be able to reclaim those games and systems back again but the prices are absolutely absurd which has lead me down the path of FPGA or modding the hardware I have left to play ROMs which has become a pretty satisfying hobby in it's own right.

    This whole thing reminds me of the comic book market in the 90s with all the variant covers and massive overprinted issues #1s. It feels like the bottom has to fall out at some point.

  13. I really doubt that one person paying over a million dollars on a game will inflate the price of said game overall. It's a very rare case.

  14. You know what really sucks..?

    John Hancock promising a video game museum.

  15. We have heritage action specifically to blame. Now YouTube content creators wont tell you to harass them but I will. Everyone should go to their channel and comment on every video "I hope you all die in a fire"

  16. This video looks more AngryConsoleGamer than anything else, but I agree

  17. I'm glad emulation gives average people a way to experience classic games.

  18. Let's give up collecting old games and look forward to new and upcoming games like Scarlet Nexus, Tales of Arise, The Legend of Heroes: Kuro no Kiseki, Shin Megami Tensei V, Monark, Forspoken, Granblue Fantasy: Relink, Project Re Fantasy, Shironeko New Project and Final Fantasy XVI.
