  1. To commemorate my 7th year anniversary on YouTube, this edition of QuickPlay is the longest video review I’ve done on the channel. This is a video review I’ve been wanting to make since I started my YouTube channel in May 2012. In 1996, I was introduced to Crash Bandicoot and it became one of my favorite video games of all time on the PlayStation. I bought all the games, the action figures, LCD handheld arcade games, magazines, strategy guides, T-shirts etc. I 100% completed both the original Crash Bandicoot and The N Sane Trilogy remake simultaneously on my channel as part of a challenge I set out for myself as a fan of the series. On Christmas Day 2001, I was “Shell Shocked” when I played M&M’s Shell Shocked on the PlayStation. Find out why in this Comparison Edition of QuickPlay. I reviewed M&M’s Shell Shocked (North American and European versions) on the PlayStation at the Starling Mall MBO Cinemas in Malaysia. I’ve provided all the fun facts and trivia about the game. This video review was a labor of love made by a fan as a tribute to Naughty Dog, Universal Interactive Studios, Sony Computer Entertainment, Boston Animation and Simon & Schuster Interactive. Please use the timestamps below to skip segments of the video although I recommend watching the review from start to finish. Do as you please.

  2. He's one of my heroes too. Rayman 2 The Great Escape was one of my favorite games on the Dreamcast and N64.

  4. Tommy Tallarico and I reviewed Earthworm Jim on both the SEGA Genesis and Super Nintendo during the Video Games Live World Tour in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. Tommy shares a bit of history about the inception of the creation and development of Earthworm Jim. We also share our distaste with the recent HD remake, Earthworm Jim HD. Earthworm Jim: Spending his days eating dirt and tunneling through the earth, Jim was a very ordinary worm. When one day, BAM, an ultra-high-tech-indestructible-super-space-cyber-suit falls on him and he's cast into the throes of super-heroism. Jim was mutated into the ultra highly intelligent (for a worm) crusader that we know today. Travelling through the galaxy launching cows and battling malevolent goldfish make up a normal day in Jim's life. Dang. This review segment was done entirely on the spot meaning there were no scripts or notes written. A new Earthworm Jim game on the upcoming Intellivision Amico and graphic novel were just announced recently.
  5. Trophies Unlocked during my Story Mode playthrough: Half Way There What’s Next? Blood In The Water - Spilling 10,000 pints of blood You don't get any trophies for re-playing the multiple choice chapters with a different character but you do get some additional rewards - Koins, crystals etc.
  6. Greetings everyone Mortal Kombat 11's Story Mode features alternate cinematics as well as alternate endings similar to Neteherrealm's previous game, Injustice 2. Here is the entire Story Mode put together as a full feature length movie, edited from my twitch.tv/TheElecPlay Livestream of the Story Mode for YouTube. I took the liberty of adding the alternate fights in the multiple choice chapters so you will see the chapter unfold from the perspective of a different character. You’ll also see the Alternate Endings at the end of the video. Refer to the timestamps to skip segments of the video.

  9. Got an email from one of my YouTube subscribers asking if I intend on making a compilation DVD of my Yakuza (Ryuu ga Gotoku) Real Life Locations Tour. My response (edited for the forum): While I am flattered that one person out there thinks that the videos I made is adequate enough to be on DVD, I'm not allowed to legally sell these videos nor do I intend to. The reason being is because I don't own the rights to the franchise. SEGA owns the intellectual property and I don't want to face legal issues. I made these videos as a fan and to preserve memories I had while in Tokyo. The Location Tour videos were made to pay tribute to one of my favorite video games of all time. I'm not here to sell a product. I'm just sharing my passion about this franchise with the world and possibly for those who are interested in travelling to Tokyo.
  10. Channel update: 702 current subscribers.
  11. Location Tour Highlights The Ryu ga Gotoku series is known for providing players a plethora of minigames and side activities. Ryu ga Gotoku 5 is the only game in the series to collaborate with BAGUS - an entertainment hub providing billiards, darts, karaoke and restaurants.ring hospitality and the highest quality of services for all customers.
  12. MK 11 Stress Test IMPRESSIONS (Tested from March 15th to 17th) Since MK Deception (2004) until the release of MK XL, the online netcode has been region locked (GameSpy servers) and I've been unable to play against my buddies or others online (PS2, XBOX, PS3, 360, PS4, XB1). For instance if I purchase the European version (R2 or R4) of MKX and my friend owns an Asian/US (R3/R1) version of MKX we can't play against each other unless one of us has that specific region. The matches will connect, the character select screen would appear and then the dreaded, "This session is no longer available." message pops and both players get a loss. I'm glad that this issue has finally been resolved since the release of INJ2. Unfortunately, I do get a few occasional dropouts with "The game session is no longer available." from time to time. If the connections have 1 bar or less, the game brings up the character select screen and then the message "The game session has ended." returning both players to the Search Session. I've played other fighting games like Street Fighter V, Tekken 7, Dead or Alive, SoulCalibur, Fighting EX Layer on the current generation systems and fighting games on past gen systems online. With one bar connections, matches were playable despite severe input lag with the other fighting game titles. It seems that with INJ2 and the MK11 beta, connections have to be greater than 3 bars for both players to sync into a match. I've tested the beta with both WiFi and wired connections and the matches were smooth for the most part. There were a few occasional hiccups here and there. I'd like to see an option where the player can adjust "Search Priority", "Connection Status", "Area" and toggle voice chat on/off right before searching for opponents. With HDR enabled on PS4 Pro, I noticed a slight input delay during a match with a near perfect connection on wired. I dropped a few basic combos and I couldn't pull off special moves as consistently as I could with HDR off. On the final day of the stress test I was in a match with a Skarlet player and the game froze. I waited for about a minute or two and the game booted back to the "Mortal Kombat 11 Online Beta Press the X Button" title screen. Upon pressing X, it said the stress test was over. Good games, Skarlet. Show less
