Yes. Mine are. I picked them up for a few bucks each and now they're worth hundreds. An actual FM towns is much better if you actually want to play games.
>>
>>5202946

They're not worth it at all other than to say you own it.

Not much, especially C, which is too cumbersome to bother with nowadays. The unit is worth for triggering jelly fags on /vr/, though.

A feel bad for him. He doesn't even seem to like video games all that much but the views kept coming and people kept sending him shit so he couldn't really stop.

If you watch the Rental Reviews you can tell that he's a lot more enthusiastic and for once seems to know what he's talking about.

>>5204706
Good shit.

Obsure consoles:
Cassette Vision
Gakken TV Boy
Casio PV-1000
SG-1000 (to some)
Vectrex (slightly)
Hanimex HMG-7900

Nah son, the Laseractive is now decently well known as a curiosity in gaming history thanks to YouTube memers.

Not too many people know that NEC made a version of it with their own branding in Japan due to a dispute with Pioneer.
>>
>>5207707
Yeah, released after the 12th episode, because the ending is just Oolong wishing for a good pair of panties. Why the fuck do I remember this?

Some Black South Africans still adhere to a hunter-gatherer lifestyle.

Nothing was ever released. Not even the console.

True. They hunt Boere and "gather" their belongings.

No console is obscure then. If "memers" are what you think means known consoles.

Probably not retro, but i still wanted to mention Zeebo; it's such a weird machine... No one loved it, with the probable exception of proud, poor third worlders. Still, software houses like Electronic Arts, Activision, Namco, Capcom and id Software invested on it, due to its characteristics; the following videos are some game versions of famous titles, for the aforementioned Zeebo.

I got one a few years ago for pretty cheap as well, but it wouldn't properly play any LDs, just kept ejecting them (worked with CDs though) and didn't come with any PACs (but it did come with the Pioneer-branded MD controller).

To add all the games that came out for it? There's a pretty alright version of double dragon.

The guy makes a living making videos for youtube and even got to achieve his dream of going to Hollywood to make his own movie. There's no reason to feel bad for him. He seems like a cool guy to hang out with and talk about music with too.
