Asus R2H UMPC - What if Homer Simpson created a Tablet?

The dark ages of mobile technology were tough. We knew we wanted portability and convenience but the monolithic tech firms of the time were slow to deliver and left the door open for much needed competition from Apple, Samsung and Google to give us what we wanted. The Asus R2H is a relic from that period before the dawn. It is, the tablet Homer Simpson might have built.

I like in the last video he was stating the "homer tablet" would have run worse on vista. Idiot.
Did anyone who bitches about vista EVER use it in any serious capacity?
The only reason Vista sucked was because people still wanted the printer and scanner they payed $200 for in 1999 to work!
if you had all new hardware and software, vista was actually a better experience than 95, 2000 and XP before it, and 8, 8.1 and 10 has been since. SURE, it wasn't Windows 98 or WIndows 7.. But not much is. (for the record I like windows 10, aside from the fact I get it working perfectly, and then a fucking update will happen and ruin the whole thing so I have to start again to make it work)

ALSO:
WHAT THE ACTUAL FUCK IS IT WITH PEOPLE HAVING WALL DISPLAYS OF CONSOLES/GAMES/COMPUTERS IN THE BACKGROUND OF VIDEOS???
I MEAN, WHY???
WE GET IT.. YOU OWN THINGS MILLIONS OF FUCKING OTHER PEOPLE DO AS WELL... CONGRATULATIONS??? I GUESS??
They have nothing to do with the topic at hand.
GET TO THE MONEY!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Today I'm going to be talking about GTA 2 on PC! But behind me is my entire PC,PS1,2,3.4,NES,SNES,N64,GC,Wii,WiiU,SMS,SMD,SS,DC,XB,360,XBO, NEO FUCKING GEO.... turbografx..... NOKIA N GAGE collection!!!!!

WHY? :olol:

In fact. That could be the mantra for any gaming youtube video :rofl:
Hank Azaria not playing Apu on the Simpsons will make the role as irrelevant as the Simpsons has been as a series since 1999!

Cancelled $60million GTA Rival: This Is Vegas - Game History Secrets

Today on Game History Secrets we talk about secret history behind GTA's Cancelled Rival: This Is Vegas. In development by Surreal Software for the PlayStation 3 (PS3) and Xbox 360, This Is Vegas was an open-world GTA styled game that was ultimately cancelled due to troubles with Unreal Engine 3. The game was originally set to be published by Midway Games, but due to bankruptcy, Midway was forced to sell a majority of its assets to Warner Bros., including This Is Vegas and developer Surreal Software, in 2009. Warner Bros. officially cancelled the project in August 2010.



Sony DualShock 4 Back Button Attachment Review vs Xbox Elite Controller Series 2

A new controller add-on for Dualshock 4 is out, rivalling the back button functionality of the Xbox One's Elite 'Series 2' controller. The cost is lower, and makes use of hardware you already own - but there are some stipulations that go with each. Will Judd and Tom Morgan discuss the pros and cons of each.



Is this $50 CPU 10 times faster than a PS3?

It is often said that to emulate a console you need a system that is 10-20 times more powerful than the console. The PS3 was a top of the line system back on its day, is a $50 CPU in 2020 able to emulate it using the rpcs3 ps3 emulator? While many of the rpcs3 games are still not compatible some of the tests show... interesting results



The Worlds Most Powerful 128MB Card....

Hello and Welcome to another Budget Builds Episode where today we'll be taking a look a the Nvidia Geforce 9500GT, one of the rarest cards i have had to get my hands on with the elusive 128MB Variant.

So before you jump to the comments (Which some of you probably have) there was indeed a release of the 9500GT with only 128MB of RAM, i know insane. It was released in certain regions of Europe, and Russia. With most coming from low end brands a few of us will recognise.

But that's only the start of the story, so join me as we take a deep dive into this card, and find out just how well 128MB of VRAM Holds up.

The Game Chasers - For the Love of Boxes

In this Game Chasers mini-chode, Chris finds one of his most sought after gaming items. Watch as his face lights up on this amazing find!



Game Sack Console Crunch #1

Here's something new I'd like to try, taking a nod from Cinemassacre who does similar things to great success with AVGN seasons. I want to offer more of these types of videos in the future with console episodes and other themes episodes, while keeping them at or around the 3 hours or so. What would you like to see? Or do you hate this idea with every fiber of your being?



Game Sack Console Crunch #2

Here is the second batch of compiled console review episodes. Some definite classic in this batch!



I Bought A $100 Core i7 Macbook Pro... Big Mistake?

12c / 24t for $110 - New VALUE King?

This is the grand daddy of Value Xeons right now, the 12 core play - the 2678 v3, which makes it a very interesting CPU, mainly because it wasn't a retail release, though is identical to the 2680 v3, except for one thing... it supports DDR3! Which means it can be coupled with cheap ECC Reg memory on (what is considered) decent X99 third party motherboards.

Overall it's the Jack of all trades, great solid all round CPU



$65 Thrift Store Game Console Lot! Do they Work? Was it Worth It?

So recently I stopped by a local thrift store near me hoping to find some retro games or consoles and to my surprise, I was able to pick up a few original Xbox's, Nintendo DSI’s two PS1 and much more for $65!

Does any of this stuff still work? Was it worth it? Let's find out.

Daggerfall | Bethesda's Monstrosity

Elder scrolls: Daggerfall is the king of RPGs in terms of sheer scale and freedom. The scale that was achievable only through the power of procedural generation. But procedural generation of anything has its drawbacks and when this game was released, all of these techniques were new and scary. As with most Bethesda games, this one had bugs, but it's one thing to have bugs, it's another to have Daggerfall amounts of bugs. Does it ruin the experience? Let's find out in this video essay.

Ranking the 32 Capcom CPS1 Arcade Games from Worst to Best | Kim Justice

Today we countdown the games of Capcom's legendary arcade board, the CPS1. Obviously this list includes the likes of Street Fighter II, Final Fight and Ghouls 'n' Ghosts, but there's some other obscurities you might not know that are well worth seeking out!



Ranking the 38 Capcom CPS2 Arcade Games from Worst to Best | Kim Justice

Wizards and Warriors retrospective: Knight in the woods | NES Works #069

We're in the final stretch of the year here with a collaboration by two companies that each made their debut earlier in 1987. This is the first of many times we'll see Rare and Acclaim work together, and in this case the studio puts its programming wizardry to work to create a technically impressive (if somewhat gangly) action platformer that would evidently do well enough to inspire a short-lived franchise. Even if it's not much to look at these days.

Potato Hunter S01 Ep.02 - Never Look Past a Dirty Computer

10 MORE Obscure and Bad Computer Arcade Game Ports | Kim Justice

We've got more rather obscure ports from the arcades to the microcomputers today! This mostly C64-centric selection ranges from a couple of NES classics to some nasty American titles, a strange and unnecessary Spectrum conversion and the worst attempt at a racing game ever



Mega Man retrospective: Rock of all trades | NES Works #070

NES Works 1987 ends as it began: With a cool game by Capcom.

But let's be real. Mega Man is much cooler than Trojan. There's a reason one series had dozens of sequels and spinoffs and the other... didn't. Capcom's first wholly original creation for NES is one of the most inventive and highly polished games on NES to date, period. With a free stage select sequence, alternate special weapons, and imaginative bosses, Mega Man stands out as a brilliant capper to an incredible year for the NES. And just think: The franchise will only get better from here, as we'll see in NES Works 1989. In, uh, a few years.

The Evolution of NES Fandom: An Overview | NES Works Gaiden #11

By patron request of Brian Larsen, here's something a little different: Rather than look at a single game, this episode takes a wider view of NES culture and fandom, and how fans of the platform have kept the NES alive and vibrant 25 years after its retirement. From the rise of emulation to modern clone platforms, NES devotees continue to make NES accessible and surprising, as this cursory overview explains.

Edit: Some quick Googling found his inactive journeyman's license with the state of Connecticut and his last known address.

Double edit: If Realtor.com is to be believed, his last known address is a condo that was built in 1989 ... the same year as his infamous appearance in Nintendo Power!
