Yeah, cause I do
know how to give constructive criticism. And I did mention, that it was my personal opinion. But what you do not seem to get, then let me be perfectly clear about it. I have personally and professionally nothing against his show at all. Frankly I think it is awesome that he is making this show, and basically his show as it is pretty virgin. In the sense, just because you have two "seasons" of a show. Does not make you a master. Hell, you can ask any one who has done it for a while. Would probably tell you: It is a hell of hard work. Ask LGR, James Rolfe, Yakumo-sama who has made the show Retro Core, which is now on its third "leg" with lots of specials, and heck even Sega Saturn only episodes, and what not. When he started, I was wary about that show, and if his humour would be as crazy. As his inspiration (Consolevania). Which he said to me "No WolverineDK , it won't be as crazy as that particular show". And the only video game related show I knew off, at the time was the Danish video game related show, named Troldspejlet (The Troll Mirror/The Magic Mirror) on Danmarks Radio (a Danish TV channel).
Where Jacob Stegelman is the host.
So I have always compared shows from Troldspejlet to the video game related shows I saw online. And in the heyday of the Danish show. It was the best I knew, now that has been taken over by RtC. But that is because Troldspejlet, has become a bit tainted/poppy. But a good episode from that show , would still be considered as a better show, than any crappy TV or online video game related shows, which I do not mention here.
Gemini000 is probably in the bottom of my "favourite" shows. But I like the show, because as he has mentioned so many times. And why I am not really mentioning it in my "complains", that he caters more for younger people. Than some of us old "farts" who has grown up with shows, that are classified as adult oriented shows. Such as RtC, AVGN and stuff like that does NOT put fingers between the curse words, like you know them
But a quality I like about Gemini000Â´s shows is he has a programmers approach which none of the other video game related shows I have seen over the years has as much. But on the technical scale: Well here we can all wiki most of the facts up, or check them out here on this great board known as vogons, and some of us has photographic/eidetic memory where I only use a trusted source as a security . Since I am not interested in talking bollocks, all the time. Does any one remember his episode about FX Fighter ? well let me tell you a thing a or two. I checked my own sources about the game (such as old forum threads, my own memory and what not) before I consulted wikipedia about it. Heck since Gemini000 has not reviewed a Gameboy game (which I actually would be surprised if that heavy metal haired fellow
did). Then I would actually ask him to check out the ASSEMbler forum about the tech in the GB). Cause wikipedia has time and time again removed a crucial piece of information about the REAL
CPU in the GB. Which is NOT a Z80, but a 8080 (or is that a re-edit of a 8086 ?) processor with a Z80 register, hence some GB developers uses Z80 assembler code. Since it has been quite controversial, so there I would rather say. Check other sources before checking wiki upon it.
So to any of the moderators. I hope this post goes through without so many notations about my grammar or other stuff. Cause I have been done for quite a while saying "this episode because he sucks XXX and he does not curse" and stuff like that.
