Wrestling With Gaming : I highly recommend visiting the website below for more info on the Famicom modem. I normally have a ton of sources for my videos and while I had several this go around, is by far the best one on this topic. I purposely left out some info that can only be found on the site so that people would go check it out. There's all kind of great info on there. Please give it a visit.

Cars Simplified : I had no idea such a thing existed! Interesting stuff. Really liking the channel.

Talon The Retro Gamer : Your channel is so underrated. You deserve a lot more subs, dude. Keep up the good work.

Satoshi Matrix : 3:19 Hey, there's my subbed Famicom modem commercial! Very kind of you to give me credit and not claim it as your own. I've previously had Brent Black (Brentalfloss) steal my stuff as his own and when I kindly asked him to credit me, he (and his fanbase) were assholes. So.......thank you for doing the right thing. Although I should point out that you misspelled Famicom as "Fammicom" in your title card. Aw well, we all make mistakes. Now looking back at my own commercial, I wish I hadn't used such obnoxious font. If I were to re-do it, I'd use something less garish. But anyway, awesome to see a doc on the Famicom modem. I loved your documentary on the Power Glove - it actually enticed me to go dig mine out and re-experience the badness all over again.

hey yo : That Mona Lisa commercial was awesome!

Jenovi : You know we've come a long ways when it would be considered ludicrous in this day and age for a athlete to be the spokesman for a home console or home console accessory that wasn't sports related. Crazy ad.

Useless Duck Company : I'm late to the party as youtube didn't notify me for some reason. Stupid youtube. Anyway good video I enjoyed it! My first experience with online console gaming was with my original xbox, and years before that I was playing quake 2 online using gamespy. It's interesting to see how that technology was already out years in advance.

Ezio Auditore : Whoa! I didn't know that the family com have a modem. But for stock checking? It's a game console for heavens sake. If this was launched say today, Nintendo will be scoffed at and there will be no sale at all. Also the company will be skinned and fried alive on social media. Though at least there's a lesson here about online gaming which is prevalent today. Again nice job and continue making these kinds of video. You rock. 😁💪

Milo Zabál : Man you're like a Gaming historian in steroids, your content is great! Didnt know you or your channel, but it was instant subscription. Keep up the good work.

Jan Patrician : Things like this explain why Nintendo was so slow to adapt internet capability in their consoles. Great video!

osgeld : one thing that popped out to me, buys a device meant to hook up your tv to your phone, returns device cause they could not figure out a way to connect it to both the tv and phone ... sounds like the typical adult in the 80's (and 90's)

Robby Frick : I've been watching your channel the past couple weeks and didn't realize how relatively new at this you are. I figured you have been at this for 5 years and had 500k subs: These documentaries are great and very well produced. Great job!

All I Wanted Was a Pepsi : I'm so happy I found your channel! Very well made videos and voiceovers. Great job. I subbed.

adamlee007 : Y does this seem better online solution than any Nintendo system since?!

ravager48 : I hope you'll talk about The Atari GameLine and Sega Channel somewhere down the line.

Thomas Pleacher : I had no idea this product even existed! What craziness.

srvfan42 : Your videos are always top-notch. I wish you much success in the near future.(:

ravager48 : I just stumbled upon your channel today! I'm glad I did.

Gokado Retro Reviews : if the historicnerd loves your content i needed to check you out for sure and he is right, got another sub!

kirby march barcena : The host only proves that wrestlers have also brawns and brains

Nathan Justice : wouldn't let me comment on the new video. Did you say you wrestled in Puerto Rico?

Kent Depamaylo : Just subscribed, you should do more of these gaming history documentaries.

Jake Thompson : History of the GameShark maybe????

George Watanabe : dang! I've watched all of the video game documentaries videos! What do I do now?

m e : Make more videos, dude! Love everything about your channel. You should consider making some mini-documentaries about wrestling as well. Certainly no shortage of crazy stuff to talk about there.

Razor Vermillion : I'm really loving these videos. Keep up the great work.

Mike Mitchell : Another great vid

Dan Dan : It's 2017 and Nintendo still can't find the optimal way to use their systems for online functionality.

fila1445 : welcome to the 80's where commercials were cringy af fashion horrible cars and music amazing and i wasn't even alive yet :/

Corey Trevor : All of your videos are new information for me, I never knew any of this! I was still using dial up until damn near 2008 😂😂

George Nelson : Wow thats insane about Atari. I never knew that

Ehrisaia O'Shannon-O'Keife : This was interesting, baby! thanks for this. ♥♡♡♡♡♥

Rainer Mist : Really interesting videos you got here. I just discovered your channel and immediately subscribed.

Stevinfinite : Great work as always. Next I'd like to see a doc on the Wii dildo. Please make it happen.

H. Celine : Fantastic as always

Drew Lewis : This is great info.

angbald : Just discovered your channel. Love it. Super informative videos. A+++ work sir. And I'm sure you get this all the time, but damn look just like Al Snow.

Andy Ng : Love your channel! It popped up as a suggested video and I binge watched all your gaming documentaries. Great job and I can't wait to see more!

tin pin : Wow, I had no idea this was a thing! Dial-up gambling, banking, and stocks (arguably gambling on its own) _on a Famicom_ of all things! Madness!

JozaeJA : Excellent documentary! I came to be educated on a Famicon peripheral I had no clue existed and educated I was. Much respect to your channel for uploading high-quality content, keep up the good work!

KGRAMR : Great video :-) I have a question...when will you release the Atari Jaguar video? I've been looking foward to it :-(

Burak Crystal : I love watching your videos. They're so well made and informative. Really hope you get more subs because you definitely deserve it

GetStainedAlready : the only reason this channel doesnt have more views is because of the 'Wrestling' part. I understand it was a past profession or hobby and you have a passion for it but its generally unrelated to the gaming videos. Also the alcohol element in the live stream title turns me off but thats just me. Great video like always!

DanoTheBull : Would love to see you do the 64DD. Great stuff BTW.

Brandon Roberts : great documentary

robert shelton : London vice is a great kayfabe name, were you a cm punk fan? Also what year did you retire? Any current faves and your all time favorite if you dont mind me asking

Jonny Sorensen : Good stuff man. Will watch some more of your videos on the weekend.

raafmaat : Man i love these kinda documentary style videos! i could watch them all day! probably kinda awkward to ask but do you know any other good channels that do documentary style videos regarding retro gaming? im subbed to you, Gaming Historian, Kim justice, and LGR , i could use a few more :D

石虎龙Ryan : Your videos are better than most documentaries ever. Seriously you do an amazing job. Simple, direct, easy to follow.

Richard slater : Awesome...but where's the Atari Jaguar documentary?????
