someone needs to do one of these to Guilty Gear since Sol Badguy is a walking Queen homage

My favorite part was the 8-bit "Don't Stop Me Now" at the end

I saw this awhile ago, but yeah it's brilliant. I've been a fan of Brentalfloss for awhile now, but never really watched Pat the NES Punk. Still pretty cool, though. :)

Wasn't bad, but I thought it was kind'a weak compared to Space Oddity. Though, that may be just because I'm more of a Bowie fan than a Queen fan.

Pretty creative. I enjoyed it.

One thing though (and I hope he doesn't read this); how is Pat The NES Punk popular? Are most of his fans children? He tries hard, but my god, does he fail. I can't watch his videos. Every single one is cringe-worthy; his terrible jokes, constant screaming, and ridiculously bad one-lines. He's the Gamepro of youtube gaming.

For the record, Bob, you're like NextGen or Gamefan.

Old games: Y U SO HARD?!

Seriously, what was the point? frustrating people?

To quote Egoraptor, "Lastability". If a game was too short or so easy that it could be beaten the afternoon you purchased it, people would probably get pretty pissed that they spent upwards of $60 for a game that didn't give them their money's worth. Also, in the case of Battletoads at least, the rental market in America was doing so well that they made the game significantly harder so that kids would have no choice but to either keep renting it or purchase it outright in order to beat it. That's how I see it anyway...

Also, this video really made me smile. I love both Brent and Pat so seeing them collaborate on something this awesome only adds to the greatness. I particularly loved Brent's "Not Bad" sign after Pat somehow hit the high note (especially since the last time Pat tried to sing Queen it was... well, less than stelar).
