Biological Father Surprises Family To Thank Them For Adopting His Son | The Kelly Clarkson Show


– I wanna introduce you to
a family that went viral for a photoshoot celebrating
their youngest son’s adoption. What struck a chord with a lot of people was how multicultural the family is. Here to tell us about it is
the Jones-Baldwin family. Y’all, give it up for ’em! (audience cheering) Alright, well, welcome to the show! – [Keia] Thank you! – So, tell us, who is everyone here? – Okay, well, this gentleman beside me, this is my husband, Rick. Then, he’s holding our
two-year-old son, Princeton. We just recently adopted him. – Hey Princeton! – [Keia] And then we have Ayden. – [Kelly] Hey Ayden, you are so cute. – [Keia] He’s been with us for five years. He’s eight. And then we have the teenagers on the end, they’re 16, both of ’em. – [Kelly] Good luck! – [Keia] I know! (laughing) We have Zariyah, she’s
my biological daughter from a previous relationship,
and then we have Karleigh, and she’s been with us for awhile. (audience applauding) – Awesome! And just in
case everyone missed, this is Keia, obviously. Yeah, I was gonna say, I
don’t know if I said Keia in the beginning. – Yes, this is me. – So did y’all have some tacos backstage? – [Keia] We did. – Oh my gosh, I had the steak ones! – They were so good! – They were so good!
It melted in my mouth! (Keia laughing) I was like, this is not on the plan, Keia. – It’s not, not on my plan. – It’s not, but I do,
I love the photoshoot. Who’s idea was it to do it? You can walk around, Princeton. This is your show. (Keia chuckling) You wanna sit with me? You can come sit with me! (audience awing) – I have a three year
old, so I’m used to them feeling my mama energy! – [Keia] I know, right? – I have a three year old. (audience clapping) So who’s idea was it to do it? – It was our idea, it was my idea. – Yeah, it was my wife’s idea. We were pretty, everybody
was pretty excited about, you know, the adoption, and we wanted to do something special. She came up with the idea, we pretty much went over
the things that we wanted to go on our shirts. She reached out to one of my friends, and he made the shirts for us. – Oh, that’s so cool! Man, I love you guys. Princeton wasn’t your first
child to adopt, right? Was it Ayden, or was it, did you end up getting Karleigh first? – Karleigh came first, yes. – [Kelly] Okay. – But no, we didn’t think
about adoption initially because just having Zariyah
as a biological daughter and we couldn’t have
children the traditional way, I didn’t want to make it seem, you know, for it to be unfair, because I didn’t know
if I was gonna love them the way that I love Zariyah, and I just could not have that. And then when Karleigh came– – It’s really important that
you have that discussion with yourself before you do it, too. – You just never know,
and I didn’t want to, you know, have them feeling
any type of way in our house. And so Karleigh came in– – [Kelly] So how did Karleigh, yeah? – She changed everything,
my heart was like, oh my gosh, I do love,
I can love! Ya know? – That’s so awesome! Karleigh, you did that! – I did that! (audience applauding) – So, Zariyah, y’all were friends, right? – [Zariyah] Yeah. – Were y’all friends first,
and that’s how that happened? – Yeah, we were bestfriends. – [Kelly] Bestfriends, I love it! Now y’all are sisters! – Right. (laughing) – Well, how do you feel
when you’re adopted into the family? – Well, I was very, I felt
very loved, and stable where I was at. It was nice to know I had a family behind me that
was able to support me every step of my way.
As we said, me and Zary were bestfriends, and now we’re sisters, and couldn’t ask for
anything better than that. – [Kelly] So cool! (audience applauding) So Mike, you originally worked
with foster kids, right? – Yeah, I was just discussing
with them for a minute that I did work in a group
home for about a year and I learned so much from the experience and I felt like I didn’t
have as many tools because I was young and I came out of college, I had a graduates degree but not in this area of childcare or
anything of that nature. But what she told me which stuck with me was that, you know, really,
you just need someone that is love and cares about
the kids at the end of the day and that’s such an
important thing, ya know — – It really is! – Is to really care– – Man, that’s amazing! – Yeah– – Okay so– (audience laughing) – I love it! You keep running! You’re not gonna wanna do
that when you’re older, just keep doing it now! (audience laughing) – You originally didn’t
know Princeton was white? – [Keia] No – [Kelly] They don’t tell you that. – They don’t – Which I actually love.
‘Cause it doesn’t matter. – [Keia} Right. Yeah. – Because love is love. It doesn’t matter if it’s a gay couple. If
it’s a black or white couple an Indian couple. It doesn’t matter. (audience cheering) – [Keia] Yeah, no– – [Kelly] You just wanna be loved! – Yes, that’s right! And that was the only
qualification that we had. Just love. So, we didn’t
say, you know, send us any specific age, gender,
you know, or whatever, so, love. – I love it. Did it kinda
for your family, was that kind of a shock, though,
because you were like oh! – (imitating explosion) (laughing) – [Kelly] (laughing) Was it like, oh, well that’s different, but okay! – Yeah, it was! – [Kelly] Yeah, I imagine! – Did you unwrap, like
it came in a package, and you open it up and it was like– – It was like, oh! – Oh! – Turn it around, and surprise! – Oh my gosh, good luck, because you got a lot of energy! Don’t you fall! – Yeah, don’t fall off
that stage! (chuckling) – I like my money,
don’t sue me, Princeton! I worked hard for this! – Alright, well we’ll
find out how Keia and Rick made that discovery after the break, we’ll be right back y’all. (audience cheering) (upbeat music) (upbeat music) (clapping) – Alright, y’all, welcome back, I’m here with Mike Colter, who is famous for playing a super hero! (audience cheering) And I have a family of
real-life super heroes, the Jonas-Baldwin family! (audience cheering) – Three of their four children are adopted and they recently went viral for their photoshoot, celebrating the adoption of their youngest,
two-year-old, Princeton. So, we mentioned, you
didn’t know Princeton was was white. How did you find that out? – They called me to do
skin-to-skin with him. Which is like, you know,
you go to the hospital, and you put them on your chest, I know! And you bond with them, you know, so he was in the NICU– – And for people that don’t have babies, it’s a really important thing for babies, especially babies that
don’t have moms around, so that’s why they ask people, because that skin-to-skin, is like really developmental– – [Keia] Right, yes. – For them, in the early stages. – So I get there, and I’m excited, and my husband’s like,
“Don’t go to that hospital, ’cause I know you gonna
bring the baby home.” And I was like.. (Kelly and audience laughing) (Princeton cooing) – And I was like, “no I’m not!” – Yeah. – And so I get there, and I’m like ew, you know, there’s a
lot of babies in there, and I’m like, the black and brown babies, like, “which one am I
putting on my chest?” And she was like, “no,
that one over there.” And I was like, “the white baby?” (audience laughing) You know, and I was like, “okay, well, give him here!” And I just put him on my chest! (Princeton shouting) (everyone laughing) (audience cheering) – He was like, “ahhhhh!” – [Keia] Growlin’! And I put him up here, and it was just like, I
fell in love with him. And I was like, my husband
was right, I shouldn’t’ve came, because I’m
bringin’ him home, sorry. – Awe, you fell in love with him! – Yes, I did! – That’s hard to do! I
can’t, I don’t know how people do that skin-to-skin
and leave without them. – I know! Leave them up there! – Yeah. – I was up there every day! – Yeah. My husband is backstage right now, going, she is not allowed to ever do that. (audience laughing) She’s going to bring home all these kids. – Skin-to-skin equals adoption. Skin-to-skin, adoption. Skin-to-skin, adoption. – [Kelly] Straight there, straight there. So what’s it been like, Ayden, having a little baby brother? – It’s been great, he’s
smart, he’s intelligent, he’s very cute, and he gives
very great, grateful hugs. (Mike and audiences awing) – I love you! You are gonna be a little lady killer! Look it, he’s just so cute, oh my God! Okay, so you’ve had mixed
reactions from people about Princeton, right? – Yes. – How is that? How do you deal with that? – Well, you know, we get lots of stares. It’s rare, you know,
where we’re from, to see African American families
with Caucasian babies. – [Kelly] (giggling) He’s gone again. – So, we get a lot of
stares. I’ve had, you know, the police called on
me. Where I’ve had to– – What?! – Yes, where I’ve had
to show documentation that he’s my son, and– – Do you get mad at that?
I would get mad at that. – You know, we’ve tried
to just kinda push it to the side and just
choose to love regardless. – It’s almost like you’d
rather somebody just say something, like instead of, like, don’t stare at me, I
get that might be weird, but just say something– – Yeah, yeah, it’s just easier to say– – I didn’t steal this kid. – I know, I know! – There goes Ayden! Going after, y’all are going to be performers. It’s your stage, y’all, it’s your stage! – And I’m not the babysitter, ’cause I get that a lot, too. – [Kelly] Oh gosh, oh my gosh! – [Keia] Yeah, yeah. – [Kelly] People are rude! That’s like coming up to
ask if someone’s pregnant. Don’t do it! – [Mike] No, no. – Don’t do it! – [Mike] In all fairness,
so my wife is white, and so we have biracial kids
and she gets the same thing. And we have a white wife, and my kids, you know, they look, they’re black, so sometimes at the
airport and they are like questioning the kid a
couple years ago, the kid, she can’t talk at the time, they assume that she is the babysitter or something, and it’s awkward, it’s awkward– – [Kelly] That’s so weird, we’re such a multicultural.. America is
a melting pot of everyone. You see it everywhere here– – [Mike] Yeah, it’s annoying. – [Kelly] I love that about America. (audience clapping) – [Kelly] Yeah. This is what I love, too, you’re open to keeping in contact with all of the biological parents, right? – [Keia] Yes. – You’re open, I think that that’s a really cool thing. – [Keia] Yes, it has to be. You know, I think that
it’s really important to keep them connected, you know, to their birth families. I call
it my bonus families. I don’t want to ever put
my children in a position to where they’re questioning,
like, well why didn’t you, you know, uh uh. No. You know, I would rather them know, and especially that one. (audience laughing) – [Mike] He’ll burn out soon. – [Kelly] Alright, well, we
have one of the biological parents here today who
wanted to say thank you. Come on out, John! (audience cheering) – [Kelly] Thank you, how are you doing? – [John] I’m good, how are you? – [Kelly] Nice to see you! – [Keia] Oh my god! – [John] How you doing? (audience applauding) – It’s been awhile. – Oh my god! – [Kelly] I thought it’d be all smiles, and there’s tears, too, I’m so sorry! – No, oh my gosh, I’m so happy to see you. – What do you want to say
to the beautiful family? – I want to thank you Keia, and your family, for caring for Princeton and just everything– – No, thank you, you know, for the gift. – Oh, you’re welcome, at the time, I couldn’t, I was
seventeen, I just couldn’t, I wasn’t ready, and I’m
really really grateful for you guys. – [Kelly] Do you know how amazing that is? You are the greatest young man, to know that, man, this is more than I can handle right now, and you wanted to do something better for your child. (audience clapping) That’s the coolest.
Like, that’s a real man. That’s a real man, a real
woman that can do that. I think that it’s an amazing thing that you get to see this beautiful family that they’re with. Like, what a beautiful familey of mixed culture
and everybody’s invited, and it’s just a really nice thing. Is there anything that
you want to tell John? Have y’all met yet? – [Keia] Yes! – [Kelly] Okay! – Yep, John was right there with me, doing skin-to-skin. He
was there the very first parts and different things just led to, you know, the separation, but we got in contact with eachother
a couple weeks ago when the adoption was finalized because before then we couldn’t. – [John] Yeah. – [Kelly] Yeah. – And I told him, I was like, it’s time for you to meet your son and be aquatinted with him, but that’s it, this is our son. This is our son. (audience clapping) – I love that you just said, “our son.” Because what people don’t
realize, too, is that, I mean, I grew up with a
single mom, and it’s like, a village raises a kid.
Not just one person, not just two. A whole village
of people raises children, teachers, everybody– oh,
watch yourself, yeah I know. I love you, I just don’t want
you to die on my show, okay!

Sega GAME GEAR Buying Guide & Fun Games

Sega GAME GEAR Buying Guide & Fun Games


Metal Jesus: Metal Jesus here and I’m back
again with Kinsey. Kinsey: Hello and today we are going to be
talking about a buying guide for the Sega Game Gear. Metal Jesus: And you are perfect for this
video because you had one as a kid, right? Kinsey: Yep. That was pretty much my go to
hand held as a kid because it was color screen and I’m like, “Yeah, this is awesome.” Metal Jesus: Well and we’re going to be doing
this video because we get a lot of requests for it. I think there’s a lot of mystery around
the Game Gear. So we’re going to talk bout the hardware, what you need to look out for,
as well as the variants, the accessories and we’re going to recommend some games you get
day one. Let’s take a look. Kinsey: So first, we’re going to talk about
the hardware and the Game Gear is actually pretty special for the time because it was
back lit and color. Metal Jesus: Which is really important compared
to the original Game Boy, which was what, black and white or? Kinsey: Green. Metal Jesus: Green and yellow. Yeah, so Sega
was attempting to do some thing kind of forward thinking and bring color to the handheld.
Now actually to be fair, the Atari Lynx did it first, but this was another answer to that
and for the most part, when this came out that was a huge selling point. Kinsey: Yeah, yeah. It was amazing. When I
first saw this at the store, I was like, “That’s the one I want.” Metal Jesus: Now some of the other things
I like about the Game Gear is that I think it’s really comfortable to hold. I like how
it’s wide, almost like a P-S-P, or something like that. It’s really comfortable even today. Kinsey: It’s really, really nice. Metal Jesus: Yeah. You know, on the original
Game Boy I’d have to go like this to platy stuff. So I definitely prefer that. Now as
far as collecting goes, one of the really great things about the Game Gear as well,
is that there are over 300 games made for it and if you get an adapter, you can also
play most Master System games with it because I thinks it’s similar technology, or similar… Kinsey: The Game Gear is basically a repackaged
Master System, so it’s basically the same tech, just in a cuter package. Metal Jesus: Yeah and a lot of people, especially
in North America, didn’t really get into collecting for the Master System. So this is an option
for people. Kinsey: Yeah. Metal Jesus: And most of the games are dirt
cheap. Kinsey: Yeah. Now I get really surprised when
I’m like, “Oh, that Game Gear game’s $25.” Metal Jesus: Right, right. Yeah to give you
an idea, the most expensive game, I think, is Panzer Dragoon Mini and that’s by far the
most expensive one. I think it’s like a hundred bucks. Kinsey: Yeah, it’s like a hundred bucks. Metal Jesus: Yeah, but these go down from
there and most of them are literally a dollar, five bucks, ten bucks, something like that. Kinsey: Yeah it’s basically the Panzer Dragoon
and Mortal Kombat 3 are the really expensive ones. Metal Jesus: Yeah there’s a couple of them,
but not many. So it’s very easy to collect for, which is what I like and actually that’s
what I do, is when I go out, if I see a Game Gear game, I don’t own, I’ll be like, “Sure,
why not.” Kinsey: $3, $1, yes. Metal Jesus: So that’s kind of some of the
positives. Now, there are some negatives and we talked about the screen and while Sega
was trying to do something really far advanced, the thing is that screen technology on a hand
held just sucked batteries. Kinsey: Yeah. Metal Jesus: And so, unfortunately, this will
cook through six AA batteries in no time. Kinsey: Yeah, when I was little, I tried to
take one on a road trip. There was a lot of gas station batteries I went through. Metal Jesus: That’s so funny. The other thing
about it is that unfortunately, some of the capacitors that were used in this fail a lot
and so it’s unusual to find a perfectly working Game Gear unfortunately. As a matter of fact,
my first Game Gear, the screen was funky, they had no sound. Kinsey: Got to wear headphones and lean it
weird and you’re like, “Alright, this I can now do.” Metal Jesus: Yeah. But one of the good things
is and some of you watching this may have noticed, that this is a little bit unusual,
this one right here. So this is modded and there’s a bunch of people out there who mod
these. As a matter of fact, a guy named Marco did this. He’s part of, I think, the AtariAge
Forum and actually what he did, is he replaced the screen on here with an LCD screen, super
bright, and it’s shockingly better. So we’ll actually compare them in a second here. He
also replaced a lot of the capacitors for the sound, which is really nice of him to
do that and it also has V-G-A out. Kinsey: That’s so awesome. Metal Jesus: Yes. So this is really cool.
So basically, if you use the brightness over here, you can either set it to be on the handheld
or you can send it out to your TV or your computer monitor. Kinsey: Oh, that’s awesome. Metal Jesus: It changes it completely. If
someone is going to start collecting Game Gear now, because the screen is kind of one
of the bummers, it’s really hard to go and buy one of these today and have to deal with
that screen. So getting a new screen on there is like it’s night and day. Kinsey: Yeah, it’s bringing new life to the
Game Gear, which is awesome because there’s great games for it. It get’s over looked a
lot. Metal Jesus: Yeah, definitely. Now there are
a lot of accessories, so let’s talk about that next. Alright, so we were talking about
the terrible battery life of the Game Gear, but there are other solutions, right? Kinsey: We can get you a one of a kind chick
magnet. You can wear this baby on your belt. Metal Jesus: When you first mentioned this
I was like, “What the hell are you talking about? Oh, right.” You seen a fanny pack. Kinsey: With my Game Gear fanny pack and my
Game Gear battery pack. I just need a Game Gear hat. Metal Jesus: I’m surprised you don’t have
one. Kinsey: I wish I did. Metal Jesus: But this is a rechargeable Game
Gear battery pack. It’s actually cool. Kinsey: Yeah and it really helps extend the
life of your battery and you’re not always going to get more AA’s. Metal Jesus: I know. Just to do this video
I sent Rebecca, my wife, to go to Target to buy a bunch of batteries just so we would
have them. It’s ridiculous, right? But so it’s nice that this is here and the other
thing too is that you can use a Genesis power adapter as well. Kinsey: Yeah, for the Genesis 2, I actually
did that a lot when I was little. I just sat by the wall and played my Game Gear. Metal Jesus: Yeah and so I think a lot of
people do that now, too. Even myself when I’m in my game here, I just use that. So it’s
not that big of a deal. So some other accessories are, of course, I forget what this is called. Kinsey: The Super Wide Gear. Metal Jesus: Super Wide Gear and it’s funky
too. It opens up like this, it hooks on the back. Honestly, I don’t fell like it needs
it that much, but it’s just one of those things that you had back then, right? Kinsey: I used it when I was little. I was
like, “This is awesome. Look at how big it is, yeah!” Metal Jesus: They should do this for other
stuff. Now that I’m thinking about it, I wonder if this hooked on the Vita or something, that’d
be hilarious. Kinsey: It’d be great. Metal Jesus: That’d be great. Another thing
is, we mentioned it earlier and that is you can play most Master System games on it because
the technology is very similar. All you need is a Master Gear converter. Kinsey: Yeah. Metal Jesus: Now what’s weird about this is
that this can be collectible or expensive, not super expensive, but this can cost you
more than the Game Gear itself, which is hilarious. Kinsey: Yeah. Metal Jesus: But, it’s pretty cool. You basically
pop the game in here, it attaches to the back, turn it on and you’re playing Master System
games. So it’s pretty awesome. Another accessory that a lot of people were kind of impressed
with was the TV tuner. Kinsey: Yeah, watch TV on your Game Gear. Metal Jesus: Color TV. But, of course, it’s
really useless today because it’s all broadcast in digital. Kinsey: Yeah and the rabbit ears won’t really
help you. Metal Jesus: Yeah won’t really help you, but
that’s pretty much for accessories, right? There’s a lot of bags and things like that. Kinsey: Yeah, there’s a link cable. Metal Jesus: Oh, right. Kinsey: Want to play a Game Gear with your
friends? Metal Jesus: That’s right, yeah. So that’s
the accessories, but now we probably want to talk about some of the variants of the
hardware, right? Because this is where it can be pretty exciting collecting for the
Game Gear. The Game Gear itself, the black one, is not very expensive. It’s like what,
15, 20 bucks? Kinsey: Yeah, but this is the one a lot of
people know of. So I don’t even know if a lot of people know it comes in other colors. Metal Jesus: Yeah, that’s true. So I showed
off in a pick ups video a little while ago, the yellow one. I know. A lot of people thought
this was fake or some sort of shell, but it actually was released in Japan. That’s where
this comes from. Kinsey: They get all the good colors. Metal Jesus: I know. But yeah I absolutely
love it. I think it’s beautiful. So there’s yellow, also blue. Kinsey: The blue one is probably one of the
more common colors. So little bit rarer than the black, but not much. Metal Jesus: It’s a nice color of blue though. Kinsey: Still awesome. Metal Jesus: Yeah and then you have, I think
one of the rarer ones, right? Kinsey: Yeah. Metal Jesus: It’s certainly collectible. Kinsey: There was also some special edition
ones released, as there is for most systems, but in Japan, for example, this one’s a Magic
Night Rayearth system, which if you’re an anime kid like I am, love it. Rayearth is
awesome. Metal Jesus: And now, did it come with a game? Kinsey: Mm hmm, and it came with a Rayearth
game as well. Metal Jesus: Same exact color as the system,
which is perfect. Kinsey: And it’s beautiful, it’s all matchy,
matchy and if you like Rayearth especially getting the game and the system together it’s…I
don’t know, it was magical when I saw it. Metal Jesus: And you have it in the box. I
was like, “Wow!” Kinsey: Yeah and the game’s really fun too,
especially if you like Rayearth, because it’s just an action game and it’s really fun. Metal Jesus: There’s also some other variants
too. There’s a Coca Cola one, which has another color red, which is really cool looking too.
There’s a few others that people are looking out for so it’s awesome. Kinsey: So now we’re going to talk about some
games. These aren’t necessarily the rarest or the craziest, but these are the ones that
we think are really good to own or we just really enjoy. Metal Jesus: Absolutely. Kinsey: So on that note, I’m going to start
with The Lion King because it’s on everything, but this is me riding in the nostalgia train
for a little bit. The Lion King and also Bonker’s House of Wax, it’s awesome you guys. Don’t
judge me, but these basically were the games I played as a child and it doesn’t do it justice
when I play this on any other system. So this is always recommended by me and it’s not that
expensive. So I think it’s worth it and it really shows off the Game Gear’s capabilities. Metal Jesus: That’s cool. So a game I’m going
to recommend here is a game I was surprised that I really enjoyed. I don’t know if it’s
on any other system, I don’t care, but it’s called Devilish and I thought this would be
some sort of arcade action game. No, it’s actually like an Arkenoid clone, but it’s
got it’s own thing basically where you have the paddles and you’re knocking a ball back
and forth. The screen is heading down, but what’s really cool about this is that you
can reconfigure the paddle. So for instance, you have one paddle or two up above each other,
but then you can split them out. You can put one on it’s side. Plus you can control the
up and down so you can throw the upper paddle higher. I don’t know, it’s just like… Kinsey: It sounds complicated, but at the
same time I’m enthralled. It sounds awesome. Metal Jesus: See, the thing I like is that
Breakout and Arkenoid had been around for so long, that that’s kind of a tired game,
right? But I like games that try to do something new with it because I grew up with that. I
loved those games when they first came out. So Devilish on the Game Gear, pretty cool. Kinsey: It’s got a good name, too. Metal Jesus: It is. Kinsey: And actually on that same vein, Haley
Wars. It’s a vertical shooter. It’s super fun. But what it does a little bit differently
is that whenever you miss one of the ships or one of the asteroids or comets that’s coming
at you, if you miss it, it goes and it hits Earth and you have a gauge on the bottom that
says what percentage Earth is destroyed and if it gets to 100, that’s it. Metal Jesus: Yeah, it’s a surprisingly really
fun shooter. I was like, “I played this a lot.” Now, you’re holding two versions of
it here and I did this because I wanted to remind myself that one of the nice things
about the Game Gear is that it is region free. So often if you can’t find a copy of the North
American version, get the Japanese version. That’s exactly what I did here. You can play
either one, it’s pretty cool. So okay that was cool. Next up for me was a game, I was
a little surprised and that is Vampire Master of Darkness. Kinsey: Yes. Metal Jesus: It looks cheesy as hell. Kinsey: The story’s a little cheesy, but it’s
worth it. Metal Jesus: It’s cool. It’s basically a Castlevania
clone. They’re not even sugar coating it, it’s Castlevania, right? But I like it. For
one, I find it to be a little bit easier than Castlevania for some reason. To me that’s
a good thing because on a little screen it can be difficult. As a matter of fact, this
game on the original Game Gear screen I think is pretty difficult because it’s hard to see
bats and stuff. On my modded one it changes the game, it’s so much more playable. So,
yeah, highly recommended, this is a fun game. Kinsey: Nice. And then one I really wanted
to mention is Revenge of Drancon. What I really like about this game is that it’s super unassuming.
Most people probably walk by this because… Metal Jesus: It looks like a budget title. Kinsey: It looks like a budget, I don’t know,
generic, but, it’s Wonderboy. It’s so fun. It’s basically the arcade version of Wonderboy
and it’s wonderful. Metal Jesus: That’s weird that they changed
the name to something like that, though. Kinsey: I don’t even know how to say it, come
on. It looks super generic, but this is full of wonderful secrets. So if you see this,
you can get it. Metal Jesus: Awesome. Alright so next up for
me is a game called Dragon Crystal, speaking of games that look fairly generic. Now this
game, when I popped it in I was like, “This looks so familiar.” But that’s because it
also came out as Fatal Labyrinth, or at least very similar in style. So this is a maze like
dungeon crawler, top down. This is another game where I popped it in and I played it
for way longer than I expected to because it’s so easy, it’s so much fun. Essentially
you’re just cruising around in this maze, you’re slowly exposing parts of the dungeon
and combat’s fun. You basically just push up against the enemy, you don’t have to battle,
you don’t have to button mash, there’s really not much skill, which is perfect for a handheld
where you’re just trying to have some fun. But there’s armor upgrades and all that sort
of stuff so I enjoyed it quite a bit and this game is dirt cheap. Kinsey: Yeah. Alright and next I’m going to
talk about Legend of Illusion, Mickey Mouse. Metal Jesus: Nice. Kinsey: And this one’s awesome because this
is in the same series of Castles of Illusion, which everybody knows, but this one, I believe
it’s a sequel. It’s in the same series, but it’s…I think the story is a little bit more
interesting and it’s just not one that anyone played. Everybody knows Castle of Illusion,
but this one’s definitely worth it. Metal Jesus: Cool. So next up is a game that
I had never heard of until I got a Game Gear and that is Ax Battler: A Legend of Golden
Axe. So this is a total surprise. It’s basically…it reminds me of Zelda 2, where there’s an overhead
map and then it goes to a 2D exploration. I don’t know, I guess it’s a side thing for
Golden Axe. So I don’t know. It’s pretty cool, I enjoyed it quite a bit and it plays great. Kinsey: Great. Alright and we wanted to mention
a Sonic game. Metal Jesus: Yes. Kinsey: Because how can you talk about a Sega
system without talking about Sonic? Metal Jesus: And you and I were talking like,
“Well which one?” Because you almost picked Sonic Drift. Kinsey: I really like Sonic Drift and Sonic
Drift 2 is the only one that came out in the U.S., but it’s really good and I know everybody
hates it and I’m sorry. Metal Jesus: I just put you on the spot right
there. Like, “Dammit!” Kinsey: I know people don’t like it, but you
can play it on the Sonic Gems on the GameCube. So it’s awesome. Anyways, this is not Sonic
Drift. This is Sonic Triple Trouble and it’s in the same series as Sonic Chaos, it’s the
sequel. A lot of people also didn’t like this one because they thought it was too easy,
but part of me, if I’m sitting on the couch playing Sonic the Hedgehog on a handheld,
easy is fine with me because I really like flying through the levels. That’s when you
can go fast and not have to worry about it as much. Metal Jesus: Yeah I agree. Easy difficulty
is not an automatic turn off for me. I’m like, “No, no, no, that’s kind of cool.” Because
there’s plenty of other ones that are hard. So you can always play those ones too. Kinsey: Yeah. Exactly. Metal Jesus: Alright and then finally, one
of the more collectible and it’s really not even that expensive, but it’s Shining Force,
I’m going to have to say this here, The Sword of Hajhy, H-A-J-H-Y. Kinsey: Hajhy. Metal Jesus: Why? I don’t know, but this is
a fantastic game on the Game Gear. It’s actually one of the more highly rated ones too. Shining
Force games are really cool. They’re very similar to Fire Emblem, where they’re turn
based strategy games. Now I don’t believe this one has permadeath though. There’s a
lot to it. I enjoyed it quite a bit. Again, it’s a little bit more collectible so if you
find a copy, definitely check it out. Kinsey: So that’s our buying guide for the
Sega Game Gear and it’s a pretty rad system. Metal Jesus: I know, I love collecting for
it. I love going to expos and retro gaming stores and everyone else is ignoring it. They’re
looking at Nintendo and I just weasel right passed them, look for games I don’t own. It’s
like awesome. Kinsey: It’s great. Metal Jesus: Now the thing is, is that Hyperkin
has announced that they may add Game Gear support to the Retron 5. Kinsey: Yeah. Metal Jesus: I know, so cool. The Retron 5
is a clone system that supports a lot of different things and Game Gear was left out for some
reason. Kinsey: I know. It’s why I didn’t buy one.
I heard it was going to have all these different systems and I was like, “Game Gear, Game Gear,
Game Gear.” Metal Jesus: It supports Game Boy and Game
Boy Advance. It’s perfect just for Game Gear. I know. I actually reached out to them to
see if they could give me some more information. They didn’t, but I will update this video
in the description and also in the annotations as news comes available. So I’m crossing my
fingers for that. Kinsey: Me too. Metal Jesus: I know. Well hey, thanks for
coming on the channel. Kinsey: Of course. Metal Jesus: Now where can people find you
on the interwebs? Kinsey: I am on Twitter @KinsZilla, K-I-N-S-Z-I-L-L-A. Metal Jesus: And you have a YouTube channel? Kinsey: I have a YouTube channel, three videos
and two that matter. Metal Jesus: Two that matter and the third
one is? Kinsey: Just gameplay from the Witcher when
I had a weird mountain bug, there were mountains in the city. Metal Jesus: Oh really? Kinsey: Yeah, it was too funny not to share. Metal Jesus: Well and you’ve done an unboxing
video. I remember that. That’s awesome. Alright, you can find me @MetalJesusRocks, Twitter,
YouTube, Facebook, all that sort of stuff. Alright guys, thanks very much for watching,
thanks for subscribing and take care. Alright, now that I have the Sega Game Gear
buying guide under my belt, I’m curious, what other buying guides would you like to see
me do? I have some ideas. There’s some good stuff out there. You know what needs to be
done, a P-S-P buying guide needs to be done. That’s a pretty good one because there’s like
three different models, tons of good games.

Penn & Teller Give a Lesson in Misdirection Using a Vanishing Chicken


-Ladies and gentlemen,
Penn and Teller! Oh, my goodness!
[ Cheers and applause ] Nice to see you, buddy. Pleasure to see you. -Thank you again.
Welcome back to the show. First of all, I want
to congratulate you on — you guys have
the longest-running headlining act in Las Vegas.
-In history. -In history.
-Not just now. The longest-running headliners
in history of Las Vegas. -Congratulations.
That’s just amazing. -And we just signed for another
four years, so until 2022. -At the Rio?
-We intend to die in office. [ Laughter ]
That’s our plan. -Oh, man.
I can’t believe — I love that. Now let’s talk about
the fifth season, “Penn and Teller: Fool Us.” Explain the show to the people
if they haven’t seen the show. It’s a good premise. -Greatest magicians
in the world. And we’re into the fifth season,
it really is the world. We get people from all over. They come on,
and they do a magic trick that they think can fool us,
and if they fool us, they come out and play with us
in Vegas at our theater, the conveniently named
Penn & Teller Theater. And if they don’t,
they go away crying. [ Laughter ]
-Yeah, exactly, yeah. -This season,
we’re also bringing back — which is not thrilling us — We’re bringing back people
who fooled us before. Fan favorites to come back on
and try to fool us again. -Fool you again.
-Yeah. -Okay.
Now you always bring a cool thing
or do something amazing, some type of illusion or trick, and so you’re
doing something tonight. I never know what it is. -We didn’t let you in
on the rehearsal. -No, I never know.
All right good. What do I do?
-Stand right over there. You watch it right there.
-Okay. -You know, there’s a word —
misdirection — that’s used by laypeople a lot. It’s a magical term.
It’s a term of art. And the way laypeople use it
is wrong. Because laypeople often use it
as a synonym for distraction. Like, “Hey!
Look over there!” do something sneaky here,
and then you look back, and the trick is done. That doesn’t fool anyone.
-Mm-hmm. -The way we use
the word misdirection is kind of a curating
of attention, giving the audience a story
they can tell themselves that lets them not really know
they were distracted. And we’re gonna do a trick
right now using misdirection. I’m gonna tell you what it is. The trick is
The Vanishing Chicken. There’s a chicken in there.
We’re gonna make it disappear. Now, when I say “Give you
a story to tell yourself,” it’s not some jive-ass story
like this is Clucky McCluckface, and this is the chicken-coop
rocket ship to Mars. No, a real story,
which is you know it’s a vanishing chicken.
I’ve told you that. -Yes.
-You know we’re Penn and Teller. You know we do magic tricks. So as soon as I
cover up this chicken, you’re telling yourself
what you’re gonna do. You’re telling yourself a story. You’re making yourself
a promise. ‘Cause you’re
promising yourself right now that at no time
will you allow your attenti– [ Cymbals crashing ] [ Laughter ] -[ Laughing ] Oh, my goodness. -Misdirection.
-Yeah. -Now, Jimmy, I want to see
how well this works. Can we have the house lights up
so I can see people? Yeah, just want to see —
Show of hands. How many of you saw
the gorilla with the cymbals? Should be everyone! It’s a goddamn gorilla
with cymbals! [ Laughter ]
Should be all of you! -Yes, yeah.
-Now some set of that, how many of you saw Teller
walk out here, cop the chicken, and split? That’s almost everyone, too. Now here’s where
the misdirection comes in. How many of you,
during all of that, saw us sneak the gorilla
into the cage? [ Audience “Oohs” ]
How many people saw that? Because that’s misdirection.
-What? -Oh, my gosh.
[ Cheers and applause ] ♪♪ -That’s Georgie Bernasek.
Georgie Bernasek. -Are you kidding me? Oh, my gosh!
That is — -Only we would take the showgirl
and put her in a gorilla outfit. -In a gorilla outfit.
Unbelievable right there! Penn and Teller!
[ Cheers and applause ] How did you do that? “Penn and Teller: Fool Us”
premieres Monday at 8:00 p.m., on the CW.
You guys are the best. We’ll be right back!
How?!

How Flash Games Changed The Internet

How Flash Games Changed The Internet


In the very beginning, there was nothing. In terms of finding entertainment online,
there was always a roadblock or three when in the “finding entertainment” business because it was damn near impossible to find
sufficient entertainment for your young self. There’s only so many hours in the day and
you can’t spend all of it playing on your PSDS2 Lite XL because that’s bad! And could give you several cancers of the
brain that would surely render you a vegetable and you don’t want that do you? So in the midst of all of these troubles,
you have to look to that massive behemoth in your living room also known as your PC,
but there’s two immediately 2 problems with your PC. First problem is that you have no way to play
the latest and greatest games that were available on the PC Games for Windows catalog, you might as well use your PC to cook your
dinner at that rate. And the second and most important problem of all… you’re broke. Good luck trying to convince your parents
to get you Disney’s Extreme Skate Adventure for the PS2… that’s too violent! With all those choices out of the window you
have to seek other methods of playing your favourite video games, and there’s no better
alternative to the PC than the new invention by Bill Jobs called the intelligent phone.
Speaking of phones… Hey! Hey you.. You there watching in the safety of your own
dwelling place. Are you bored of playing the same stupid game
of Glow Hockey over and over again and are looking for something brand new for your eyes
and fingers to feast on? No? Well have I got some NEWS for you!! RAAAAID SHADOW LEGENDS. 2019 has a new banger of an R.P.G that’s
stormed YouTube and the internet and is up there with the biggest PC and console titles. Gadzooks brother, that must mean it’s bloody
expensive! WRONG. It’s absolutely free!!! Storylines, giant boss fights, player vs player
and hundreds of champions to collect and customize like look at this specimen!!! You don’t need to worry about waiting times
because the game has a download base of 10 MILLION PLAYERS worldwide in just 6 months. You don’t need to take my word for it look
at the reviews, it has almost a perfect score on the play store. With 300k reviews!!! Look at the graphics on this thing, my phone
can’t even handle how GOOOD this looks. HARK! There’s a new Faction Wars feature right
here!!! Uh… but what about me? No need to worry, you literally get paid to
continue playing the game with REWARDS for the first 90 days in the game. So what are you waiting for? Get it nooooooooooooow. Check out the links in the description to
get 50,000 silver and a free EPIC champion to start your journey. Good luck and I’ll
see you there. But before the phone, there was another smart
invention that filled the lives of young kids for many a year, giving children a reason
to stick it out until the end of the school day is near so that they can escape into a
world with absolutely no rules. Apart from the many site blocking tools that
were put in place by the school council to prevent your innocent eyes from getting permanently
STAINED. Yes that’s right I most certainly am talking
about- ♫ Flash games were the dog’s bollocks. These games were the perfect time killer and
they provided hours of entertainment for absolutely no extra cost. All you needed was yourself and a browser. Preferably Internet Explorer because back
then Google Chrome was a super dodgy virus software from the future that would eat up
all of your resources and shit them out in the form of Chrome extensions. Before you had the privilege to play a flash
game, you had to go through initiation to prove that your 5 year old self was indeed
an epic gamer. How do you prove yourself? Well… Yes that’s right, before you could join
the big leagues in the world wide web, you had to prove that you had the brains and the
brawns to tackle the games over in league 1. 3D Pinball Space Cadet edition is Windows’s
version of the classic Pinball game for PC published by Maxis before EA could get their
dutty hands on them. In 1995 the game was released for Windows
and Mac and unlike the version that was widely known as the definitive Windows version (which was released in the same year), This version of Pinball had THREE DIFFERENT TABLES. More customisation than modern AAA games at
no extra cost and you could do several different quests like escaping the Bermuda Triangle,
rescuing a damsel in distress and SLAYING A DRAGON. This thing was MIND-BLOWING at the time. You want to get promoted to the Premier League
of flash games? Well, you deaf, dumb and blind kid, first you have to master the art of Pinball
and become a Pinball Wizard. But surely there has to be a twist? Well in
fact there was a slight twist in that the version that people played on the Windows
edition of the game wasn’t actually the full version of the game. Yes, you ended up getting Activision’d and
all the cool features that were in the original version of the game are nowhere to be found! But not to worry, with a high score of 103,214,325,
you are now ready to join the ranks of the elite, where you will be inducted into the
school of procrastination and losing your innocence slowly and steadily. But before you get to finding where these
so called Browser Games are, you need to know what you’re dealing with here, so as I’ve
done in all of my previous videos, I’ll provide some CONTEXT to the world of browser
gaming. Browser gaming has been a thing for a very
long time now, and while the concept of it is losing favour in the rest of the gaming
world, it’s a highly influential concept that has rightfully sealed its place in the
national board of gamer knowledge… limited. The beauty of a browser game is the fact that
it could literally be played absolutely anywhere unless you’re on an old android or iOS device… but those didn’t exist back in the day. And spanned a massive variety of video game
genres and gameplay types. You could have a single player game or a multiplayer
game or an MMORPGLGBTBLT game. You could also play browser games on any operating
system that you want, just as long as you have access to the browser in question. As a child, we were SPOILED for choice for
what game you could play. You could be having a great old time playing the original Bejeweled
and the next thing you know you could be brutally torturing a mannequin- It all started in 1995… Toy Story had just
been released and showed that there was a market for computer animated projects, Quebec
tried to pull a Scotland and escape from Canada but they weren’t having any of that and
Ebay had just started giving people the opportunity to sell their used goods… online! One plucky company who went by the name of
FutureWave Software were looking to challenge Macromedia who at the time were the big dogs
of the industry. FutureWave modified their already existing software by adding the ability
to animate frame by frame. They named this creation FutureSplash Animator and released
it for PCs and for Macs. When this dropped the entire industry had their minds blown. To hide the embarrassment from being beaten
to the punch by an inferior company, Macromedia bought the entire company one year later and
the animation editor was renamed to Macromedia Flash, successfully washing away the efforts
of FutureWave software as their name was deprecated forever… which kinda sucks if I’m honest
because FutureSplash sounds so much better than just… Flash. In a twisted run of karma,
Macromedia was then eaten up by Adobe and their efforts were swept away in the wind
as Macromedia Flash was renamed to Adobe Flash. Which was then renamed to Adobe Animate. Continuing
the never ending circle but we’re getting too ahead of ourselves here. Back in the 90s,
a new language was created by the overlords at Macromedia called ActionScript, which was
a programming language released at the same time as Macromedia Flash. These tools allowed
developers to start making games for browsers… but wait there’s more! The Sun no shut your MOUTH I’m not talking about you. *sigh* Sun Microsystems launched a site that went
by the name of HotJava which people could use to run games and applets that could run
on any browser that also ran Java. Now the foundations were SET and you could now GAME!!
Hold on one second… There we go… Among the earliest websites to run Java programming
was a site fittingly named ClassicGames dot com. This site hosted games such as Chess,
Freecell, Checkers, you know, the classic kind. And it was the largest collection of
Java games on the internet. And it was multiplayer! As far back as 1997 you could game against
other people and assert your dominance over them as you move in for a checkma- FUU- Companies saw the rapid growth of ClassicGames
dot com, growing from 50,000 members to 60,000 in less than a month! This made Classic Games
one big fat dollar sign and the first company to pounce on them were YAHOO! Who bought the
game site and renamed it to Yahoo Games, effectively wiping the name recognition of Classic Games
dot com. Meanwhile Microsoft wanted a little piece of the pie and bought a small website
which went by the name of The Village. Problem with the Village though was that after Microsoft
got their hands on it, you had to download more than 3 MB OF DATA to be able to play
the game, that’s DIABOLICAL. Can’t believe you’d do that Bill! Children in Africa could’ve
eaten that data. In order to access the village, you needed to have Internet Explorer on your
computer because only Internet Explorer could do it. From this website though, we got our
first “banger” series of Flash games… BEJEWELED, which has now gone on to sell over
75 million copies, so PopCap have only Bill to thank for that one. The arguable GODFATHER of Flash, who has stayed
loyal to the medium pretty much ever since its inception, is Tom Fulp. Animators and
flash game devs probably perked up upon mention of that name, but I’m sure the rest of you
“n o r m i e s” aren’t aware of just who he is so for the uninitiated: in 1996,
Tom Fulp developed 2 games for a website he created as a devotee to a set of hardware
named Neo Geo. After making a separate site with the intention to host browser games,
he began using Macromedia Flash in 1998, combining the two websites he created to make a new
site known as Newgrounds. Newgrounds would become a powerhouse on the internet as most
people’s exposure to “edgy” content from the internet came from the site: the
Numa Numa Dance was uploaded onto Newgrounds first before YouTube and other sites began
to pop up that also had the intention of allowing for user uploaded content, such as Kongregate
and Armor Games for example. In 2001, Miniclip was created by two legends in the Blighty
using 40,000 pounds of their own funds. Now it’s a BILLION DOLLAR COMPANY. As far back
as 2008, the company was valued at around 900 million pounds. Basically like buying
Bitcoin in 2012 and selling it before it all went to hell. At the inception of the flash
gaming industry, developers who made such games went for a business model in which the
games they make were free demos to full games that would come out later: games such as Clash
n Slash for example. The rapid explosion of Flash games in itself was due to the fast
spread of information in the early 2000s using sites such as AIM and email. You could send
a couple of links to some SWF files across the world wide web and they’d just zoooom
across to your big BAWKS, it was GREAT. So now your brain’s been filled with the
KNOWLEDGE, it’s time for you to venture into the vast landscape of the world wide
web. But first you gotta pick a website. For people as young as I was when I was playing
Flash games, there was absolutely NO way for anyone to access a website that even remotely
had the term “game” or even synonyms similar to the term “game” because the school
had everything on lockdown. You try and access just one site? FBI OPEN UP!!! So as students, we were all given laptops.
Nowadays you have schools buying iPhone 11 Pros for their youngest students, but we were
laptop children. Not the amazing super rigs that you have to shell out your right bollock
for, but those tiny ones that you had to leave on overnight to just log into your account.
When we had those lessons in the computer labs, you’d always see a group of people
playing Line Rider at one corner of the room, the class clown in tow, drawing the biggest
willy he can ever conjure up and discretely showing it to the class while the teacher
is speaking. Anyway, I’d be attempting to access Friv so I can play the newest version
fo Super Mario Bros Flash and actually complete it this time instead of dying at the same
POIIIINT- But shock and horror, to the surprise of a
grand total of no one, the site is blocked! And now you can never play the game in class!
But wait, your tech savvy friend has just given you a link to another website that can
download the full game! Looks a bit weird, where’s the dot com? Why’s it a set of
numbers? Oh well, better get downloading! Oh look the file says Super_Mario_Bros_Flash.exe!
This is downloading really fast, thanks frie- And now you’re a clown for listening to
that kid in class because you’ve just loaded your laptop with that trojan. When you’re at home though on the family
desktop, it’s a whole different story because the entire internet is now open to you and
at your disposal to explore, giving you plenty of choices of flash games to play and have
lots of fun with. The games that were available to you were so vast: you wanted to play a
game of Copter? Well you’ve got it; most early flash games were essentially reskins
of already existing games such as Super Mario, Pac-Man and Frogger for example. The arguable
golden age of gaming with Flash started at around 2004, and throughout the noughties,
different animators and developers came out of the woodwork to create various forms of
art that people still play and enjoy to this day, for example: you just discovered a brand
new website called albinoblacksheep and there’s a game on it called the Scary Maze Game! It
looks relatively normal, it’s just a blue pathway leading to a red box and you have
to guide your mouse to it! And it looks like the last level is a bit more tricky, the borders
are extremely thin… not to worry, just look a little closer, you can do it! Almost there!
(jumpscare) And this would become the basis for many scare pranks and shock sites that
plagued the internet from 2004-2010, and also showed that there really were no rules on
the internet at that time as Flash games were highly controversial. In the late 1990s and
the early 200s, real-world events were used regularly in order to get people playing the
game. One of the most famous examples of this is the infamous McDonald’s Videogame, in
which you play a CEO of McDonald’s and you commit various acts of corruption to keep
the company afloat, such as bribing public officials to allow you to demolish villages
and clear rain forests for example. Naturally, Maccy D’s were not pleased and a new game
was created called Burger Tycoon, which is exactly the same but without any mention of
the Golden Arches. In more extreme examples, you had flash game devs creating games making
fun of various shootings in America and trivialising them in the form of RPG flash games: of course
the media would not be too happy about those ones owing to the fact that they were extremely
easy to access as they were free and online. As the whole concept of Flash and browser
gaming evolved, you started to see more games and projects being made that turn into massive
franchises, such as Bloons for example, turning from a simple game of a monkey throwing a
pin at balloons to a large money making tower defence behemoth. You can’t mention the
growth of flash gaming online without mentioning the effect of StickPage, a website dedicated
to hosting animations and games that all revolved around stick people: Stick War being an extremely
popular example, and the Henry Stickmin franchise of games pioneering the whole concept of choose-your-own-adventure
and including various different pop culture references and humour that still holds up
to this day. Can’t forget about the Fancy Pants franchise as well, going from a simple
game you’d find on the second page of Miniclip to having an Xbox Live adaptation of the original
game and a sequel to boot. Animators used Pivot to practice their fight choreography
and uploaded these to websites such as Newgrounds and Stickpage with death metal blaring through
the speakers and now your parents are running downstairs because you’re blasting music
at 3 AM in the morning. Not all browser and flash games were stuck in the realm of 2D
as well: while you had the oddballs like classic Plants vs Zombies and games like the Thing
Thing franchise, early developers used Shockwave to their advantage with games such as On the
Run becoming extremely popular and a personal rage game for me because I used to be unable
to get past the very first section without being NUTTED by the black car. Nowadays I
speedrun in, ain’t no problem with that. Before the age of Adblock, using Internet
Explorer also introduced me to various other games such as Adventure Quest, because that
game couldn’t stop leaving the sidebar of every bloody website that I ever visited.
Multiplayer 3D browser games like Team Tanks and Armagetron also provided entertainment
for everyone after a long school day. Flash games were a godsend for young gamers out
there as they provided thousands and thousands of free online games that were of varying
degrees of quality but WHO CARED! Licensed tie-in games were also actually good at the
time, with Cartoon Network’s game library blowing all the competition out of the water
with their games. Flash games continued evolving through games such as Happy Wheels beginning
to do numbers on YouTube and people flocking to that game for some gory fun, but in recent
years, the whole concept of flash games seemed to be dead in the water. With the rise of mobile gaming in the 2010s
and more children getting access to smart phones at a younger age, Flash games seem
to be dying, and that can be pinpointed all the way back to the release of the very first
iPhone. Yes, Steve Jobs was the catalyst for change in this industry, as the original iPhone
did not support Flash, a notion that was seen as GHASTLY to the general public and people’s
pitchforks were raised. In response to this, Steve went on to say that Flash falls short
when it comes to the future of mobile, stating that “the mobile era is about low power
devices, touch interfaces and open web standards.” None of these really apply to Flash as it
was now seen as a big security risk. Because of all of these points, Flash has started
to deprecate itself forever from the internet. Browsers like Chrome by default refuse to
play Flash content without you going into the settings to give them permission, and
it all reached the point of no return when Adobe announced that Flash would be discontinued
in 2020, ending an entire era of gaming for kids online… until recently. The mobile
machines shall not get their victory as various large projects are now underway to preserve
and archive as many flash games as possible after Adobe’s announcement, one of the most
notable being the Flashpoint project, with the main goal of becoming a hub for all the
lost and forgotten-to-be Flash games to nest in, in the hopes that people would remember
the fun times they had way back in the noughties playing the Impossible Quiz and cursing themselves
for using a skip before the final question. Sites such as Newgrounds and albinoblacksheep
uploading classic animations to YouTube and switching the video player on their site to
HTML5 which would allow the content to still be played without it being lost forever. As
well as this, games written in other formats that aren’t Flash gained a lot of notoriety
in the latter part of this decade, with the io domain becoming an extremely popular hub
for games like agario and slitherio, written in C++ and HTML respectively. Browser gaming
has evolved beyond young teenagers using Shockwave Flash to create their 4 frame game and has
become a huge marketplace for people using powerful engines like Unity and Unreal to
create fully fledged independent games that they sell on marketplaces such as itch.io. Developers have come a long way from making
simple Flash games and they’ve turned into moderately sizeable franchises that you’d
find on marketplaces like the former Xbox Live Arcade and Steam for example. None of
this would have been possible without the large influence and rapid growth of that small
program, FutureWave Splash over 2 decades ago and shows that flash games did indeed
change everything… on the internet at least. Thank you guys for watching this video, I
hope you enjoy this retrospective into the whole world of Flash gaming and how it’s

Game and fish is catching people lying to get a hunting license


GOOD AFTERNOON. BUT THEY )RE NOT GETTING AWAY WITH IT. GAME AND FISH HAS CAUGHT AND CHARGED DOZENS OF PEOPLE SO FAR THIS YEAR…AND THEIR WORK IS FAR FROM DONE. NEWS 13 )S FRANCESCA WASHINGTON IS IN THE NEWSPLEX TO EXPLAIN. KIM GAME AND FISH SAYS PEOPLE ARE TRYING TO PLAY THE SYSTEM. AND PEOPLE I SPOKE WITH TODAY SAY LOCAL HUNTERS ARE THE ONES WHO SUFFER. HUNTING SEASON IS WELL UNDERWAY… 16:57 this year I put in for seven to nine hunts, I drew one 17:03 ANY SEASONED HUNTER WILL TELL YOU, WITH HUNTERS FROM IN AND OUT OF STATE VYING FOR A LIMITED NUMBER OF BIG GAME LICENSES, IT )S A COMPETITIVE PROCESS. 17:15 out of state hunters definitely do take a big amount of our tags 17:20 AND FRAUDULENT ACTIVITY HAS MADE IT EVEN HARDER.. THAT )S BECAUSE SOME OUT OF STATE HUNTERS ARE LYING SO THAT THEY CAN GET AN IN STATE HUNTING LICENSE. it )s better for the residents because it is cheaper they offer packages for hunting small game and fish they offer in a package for out of staters it does cost more 17:55 FOR EXAMPLE A NEW MEXICO RESIDENT PAYS 90 DOLLARS FOR A BULL ELK, OUT OF STATERS PAY 548 DOLLARS. FOR A BIG HORN SHEEP, RESIDENTS PAY 160 DOLLARS, NON RESIDENTS PAY 3-THOUSAND 1 HUNDRED 78 DOLLARS. NEW MEXICO GAME AND FISH OFFICIALS SAY THEY HAD MORE THAT 400 SUSPICIOUS LICENSE APPLICATIONS THIS YEAR. 12:12 after the draw is complete our officers go through everybody who received a drAw tag and look through those to make sure everybody is doing what they say they )re doing 12:21 AND INVESTIGATORS FOUND 45 CLEAR CASES OF FRAUD. THEY )VE FILED CHARGES IN ALL OF THEM. THEY SAY THERE ARE ALWAYS CLEAR RED FLAGS. 11:39 so if you apply for a license saying that you )re a resident but don )t have a drivers license from New Mexico or may have an address that seems a little bit suspicious using a work address instead of a home address 11:48 LOCAL HUNTERS SAY ITS A FRUSTRATING SITUATION . 18:05 that )s fraud that is fraud so that )s going to be something I definitely don )t approve I feel like the state needs to crack down more on that 18:15 IN ORDER TO APPLY FOR A RESIDENT LICENSE YOU HAVE TO LIVE IN NEW MEXICO FOR AT LEAST 90 DAYS. GAME AND FISH JUST PRESSED CHARGES AGAINST A MAN WHO WAS TRANSFERRED HERE AS PART OF HIS JOB..HAD HE WAITED THE REQUIRED 90 DAYS HE WOULDN )T BE IN TROUBLE RIGHT NOW. BACK TO YOU. OKAY FRANCESCA. APPLYING FOR A RESIDENT LICENSE WHEN YOU LIVE OUT OF STATE IS A MISDEMEANOR CHARGE, BUT YOU CAN ALSO LOSE YOUR HUNTING PRIVILEGES FOR UP TO 3 YEARS.

Order of War review

Order of War review


Order of War for the PC review Here’s something you don’t see every day, Square Enix making a World War II strategy game which covers real historical events and not a role playing game which involves pointy eared characters in some fantasy land. Order of War focuses on the end of World War II and is set in the 40s as you push back the German Axis from France or play as the German army trying to repel the Red Army from the East. A couple of years back Company of Heroes did a good job of telling this story so how does this RTS shape up? Well it turns out that Square Enix seem to have made a rather good game. In typical RTS style you point and click your way around the map, swooping round the objectives as you command your soldiers, tanks and artillery to push forward and hold ground. You can also call in air strikes and bombing runs when the situation allows it and of course have to play to the strengths of the resources you’ve been given. For example, foot soldiers can launch surprise attacks on artillery by moving through the trees or can entrench themselves for better protection. I’m not very good at RTS games but it’s good to see the game also caters for players like me. In the early stages each level is divided up into smaller objectives and you’re shown exactly what to do. Your commander even sends in more troops if you’re running low. And if you need some thinking time you can pause the game and still give orders to your troops to get the upper hand. You can watch the action from above or zoom right in, and at the touch of a button the game goes into cinematic mode where you can see the fight in great detail. A nice touch indeed. The music is also excellent although the accents of your commanders can be a little over-the-top at times. With the single player campaigns and online and skirmish modes, there’s plenty to keep you occupied. If you’re a World War II boffin and you like your strategy games, then this one’s definitely worth a look. Order of War gets an excellent 8 out of 10.
