Bah, you youngsters and your "old" commercials; I'm surprised to have found this one in color.


EDIT: I'd forgotten Buster Douglas had a videogame. Dude was the first to beat Mike Tyson, did jack shit else, but the second Tyson hit the mat, developers were like "we need to make a game about this fucking legend!" What a waste.
Shit was still black and white even by the end of the 80s?

I remember being so hyped for Mad World. I still remember the first trailer, and was excited for what the former Clover Studios would bring to the gaming table. The 30 Second Ad barely got any play time on TV, but you mostly find it on TV(s) at a GameStop. I've seen the commercial a couples at home, late at night on adult_swim. Some times Comedy Central too.

Does Platinum do work for SEGA?

Not as much as they used to. They mainly become independent now. They're doing work for Bayonetta 3, that's more so for themselves and Nintendo. Sega still owns the character though. Other than Bayonetta 2, the last thing Sega related they did was Vanquish.

I would like to add another trailer:

When I saw this trailer, I was blown away by the fact that 1. THERE'S ANOTHER ZELDA GAME? and 2. HOLY SHIT, WII is so different!

While I couldn't get wii, I did get TP on my gamecube. It became of my most played and beloved gc games I had. I still have the same gamecube and the copy of the game. I can probably sell them for quite a price, but they are too special for me

I am never giving up my GameCube. I still have it and my Wii as a back up. Too many great games on both consoles.

Yep. Other greatness I have on my gc are: TLOR: Return of the king, MGS: Twin Snakes, Lego SW 1 & 2, Zelda Wind Waker, Timesplitters 2, Metroid Prime, and Smash Bros Melee. It's so weird that I've bough and sold PS4, XB360, XB1, and all the games, but Gamecube has never been removed from my posession.

I do wish I had more games on GC. I'm pretty sure I missed out on other greatness such as RE4, Mario Sunshine, and Fire Emblem: Path of Radiance
