    • Must be cause I'm old but from the start I knew the guy making this video is the guy that bought the bid so the surprise just wasn't that great for me other than it's amazing that there's just some things you can only get from living long enough living long enough Moral of the story you kids are smart real smart but you all should really learn to respect your elders more than you do

  • Just throw the new employee on the floor and let him learn from another employee. Seems a lot more practical and cost effective than putting them all on simulators of the exact same tasks. Japanese just want to incorporate video games everywhere.

  • Wow, now usually I see a video this long, I start to lose interest and go to another video but, I watch this from start to finish and what I have to say about this video is a amazing and crazy journey getting your hands on the rarest nds game and system from Tokyo Japan, getting your brother to bring it to United States soil. Contacting and German modder to mod a nds you just bought. Getting in touch with a friend who can read Japanese. Use the code for the first time and failed, try again on a different option, use the code again and finally access the game. What a crazy journey. You was nice enough to dump the rom so everybody can enjoy. In my book you get 10 out of 10 and a new subscriber. Brilliant
