Hello! Thank you for using yiff.party!

We hope you enjoy using it. yiff.party operates on a non-profit basis, and as such, all the server expenses are paid by our users. We don't want to run ads or infect you with crypto miners. We depend on users like you to keep the site running, and to preserve years and terabytes of amazing content—some of which is no longer available from its original creators!

Because of the nature of the site, many users are reluctant to donate. That's OK! yiff.party was created so everyone can enjoy the content we host without any restrictions or paywalls. But if you value the service we provide, and are able to, we—and our users—would be tremendously grateful if you considered making a donation.

Donation progress for October 2020

So far, approximately $400.00 has been raised out of our target of $400.00. We're about 100% of the way there! Please note: this tracker is updated manually—don't worry if your donation doesn't show up immediately!

yiff.party's server costs are due on the last day of each month. So, we need to meet this goal before 31 October!

How to donate?

At this time, yiff.party can only accept donations in numerous cryptocurrencies. Please select a currency below to display the relevant donation address.

Bitcoin (BTC)
Bitcoin Cash (BCH)

Why can't I donate through other means (eg. PayPal)?

Due to the nature of sites like yiff.party, it is very difficult to find payment processors who will accept clients like us. If we were to accept donations via PayPal, it wouldn't take more than a day for someone to submit an abuse report and get our account frozen. Until a viable way of accepting monetary donations becomes available, cryptocurrency will remain the only option.

There are many resources available on how to purchase crypto. For Bitcoin, check out bitcoin.org's page on buying Bitcoin for a list of methods. For beginner Bitcoin users, yiff.party recommends using an escrow service such as LocalBitcoins.

It's 3 am here as I type this...

Anyway, here's a followup of sorts to my Tiny Arcade Pac-Man video! It's Galaga, now requiring you to move and shoot at the same time! Does the small form factor make for a pleasant, novel experience? Sorta...well...yeah I don't know.

Next video update 2019-06-14T07:23:53+00:00

Hey there! I know I made that poll for voting on the next video topic a while back, but there's a small change in plans. I'll still be working on the script for the 3D System core video, but I've decided to actually complete the full collection by buying copies of the two remaining games, and they may not arrive from Japan until the end of the month, which also means I won't be able to release it by then. In the meantime, I might continue working on and releasing the Tiny Arcade Galaga video, since some work has already been done on it.

It's a bit of an hefty investment for two games actually, but the support from you guys definitely helps out, so thank you! :)

It's cool. Anyways that Twin Arcade video has my interest as I am really good at Galaga and I know the ins and outs of that game. I'm really curious how that version holds up.
Vote for the next video! 2019-06-03T00:35:58+00:00

It's time to v-v-v-v-vvvv-vote!

Wait that's not how that goes

Yup, it's that arbitrary time of year again, I have two upcoming video projects I'd like to tackle, so I've decided to take it to you guys to decide which one I should work on first!

The Tiny Arcade Galaga TOI episode will be a followup of sorts to my Tiny Arcade Pac-Man video, but this time with a different game. I wanted to see how the Tiny Arcade's controls would translate for a game such as Galaga compared to the more simple controls of Pac-Man. The unboxing footage has been recorded, but I'm still working on the script for it.

The Hyper Shot is another TOI subject, which is a Famicom controller released by Konami specifically for a few games that only had two buttons. How and why? Well that's what this video is about.

As for the Famicom 3D System, this was Nintendo's very first foray into 3D gaming in 1987 that never took off. In this core video, we're taking a look at ALL SEVEN Famicom games that utilized this 80s-future-looking visor and see whether they hold up. Needless to say, it's gonna be another big project.

Let me know which one you want to see worked on first in the poll below!

Sunsoft Wide Boy | Things of Interest 2019-05-28T18:20:39+00:00close

(Update: Video updated with additional color correction!)

Here's a look at a not-so-well-known iteration of a pretty-well-known type of Game Boy accessory: the Wide Boy screen magnifier! (Not to be confused with similarly named Wide Boys)

As an experiment for a more casual-type video, I'm actually not the most comfortable with the length this video ended up being, even though I already cut out quite a bit of rambling and repetition from it. If there's any part of this video you found to be a bit repetitive and could be cut, do let me know. :)

(Feedback appreciated!) New TOI draft 2019-05-26T16:26:28+00:00close

Here's a draft for the next Things of Interest video on the Sunsoft Wide Boy screen magnifier! As TOI is a miniseries, I would like to try out different production styles for each episode, and this one in particular is an unscripted first impressions sort of video.

This section will be accompanied with further visual aids in the final render, but let me know what you think of the pacing and performance here. As an ESL speaker it is definitely a bit difficult for me to talk freely about a specific topic without occasionally stuttering or repeating myself, but I tried to cut that down as much as possible, and still want to see if an unscripted video is still a possible direction for some of the videos on my channel (as well as a way to train my English speaking. :P)

Your feedback is greatly appreciated, so let me know in this post or in the Discord server!

The history of my video capture woes 2019-05-23T13:57:07+00:00

DISCLAIMER: This post contains links to old archived videos of my channel. They may contain outdated information, and some older videos may also contain content that is considered offensive. Most of these videos were made when I was of a young age, and do not reflect the current quality of my videos or any of my views and opinions today.

Everyone probably has that one system that shaped their childhood or teenage years. My childhood systems are the Wii and DS, but the 3DS is probably the most important and influential system I've ever had so far, both to my teenage years and for my YouTube hobby.

Since I got my very first 3DS on July 11th, 2011 (I THINK that was the date), I've been being to make videos with it on my then barebones YouTube channel.

I've captured game footage before this though, and it was...bad. Holding a camera up to a TV looks and sounds substantially worse than sticking it in front of a 3DS screen and speakers.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sK7a4czLnKw

My first 3DS related video was released on July 14th, 2011 and was just the QR Code of my Mii and my friend code. My Mii has barely changed since then (and tbh probably isn't the most accurate representation of me but I've gotten too used to it).

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oyMO0EMtfSc

Also I'm pretty sure my 3DS friend list is already full so you probably don't need to try entering it, sorry

My first video that actually used footage from a 3DS is a gameplay video of Super Mario Bros. back when the 3DS Ambassador Program dropped:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HzjIkk9ye9s

I just balanced a small digital camera we had on a pencil sharpener as a support. I think I still have that camera, but it's probably buried in a closet somewhere with a dead battery I can't find the right charger for. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

At that point, I don't think I've even heard of the concept of capture cards yet. In 2011 they were still in the prototyping phase, and a few well-known YouTubers at that time (cobanermani456 comes to my mind just now) simply stuck HD cameras in front of 3DS screens to capture footage.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4gkTBERfb1M

So with my dingy little digital camera, I couldn't really do much with the setup. Of course, at that time I was just holding my 3DS in front of the camera resulting in some shaky screen images (often also angled so I could see the screen clearly and my reflection wouldn't show) This lasted ALL THE WAY until September 2012. Oof.

Around the end of 2011 I switched to a different camera which apparently made things worse because now my videos ended up in 240p. I have no idea what is up with that. That's also when Super Mario 3D Land came out which I played the hell out of and made some tips & tricks videos about (that was probably the niche of the early years of my channel if I had to describe that period.)

Check out this video for some sweet 240p-upscaled-to-480p goodness and the first semblance of game footage coupled with actual video editing.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IyGlFg4-vqw

Also at one point I tried capturing direct audio by using an aux cord but the headphone jack of the main computer I use for editing at the time was broken, so it didn't really end up well.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3m11-bBQvX4

By August 2012 I figured out a way to stabilize my 3DS footage: stacking 3DS game boxes and putting my 3DS on top. Over the years I've used different other items to hold my 3DS up like smartphone boxes and stuff, but 3DS cases are pretty reliable. I think at that point I've also internalized how many 3DS game boxes to stack up in my mind like they're a unit of measurement. You can see this in action in one of my first videos on Pushmo:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OReKOWTON7g

By now you've probably noticed the wacky wave effect you get when you put an LCD in front of a low res camera. That'll stick around for a long time.

Anyway, this stuck around for a while as I pumped out some random NSMB2 videos and posted my first ever Let's Play of Super Mario 3D Land. In terms of video editing, 99% of the time I just uploaded the raw footage because the videos were fine without editing at the time.

I got a 3DS XL on around September 2012, but was still stacking it on top of game boxes and other stuff. It resulted in the screen placement never being consistent, but I was content with it at the time. Sometimes I also managed to capture both screens at once.

Then came everyone's favorite game, Paper Mario: Sticker Star. I keep saying the game's an integral part of some of my channel's very early growth, because I churned out quite a few GameXplain-like tip videos about it, such as how to get the Barrel sticker (you have to get it exclusively from Broozer enemies that show up in some airship enemy encounters). Arguably my biggest 'hit' at that point came when I beat Bowser without using Kersti:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DRhgj7sYKc0

This video is super grainy looking because I was recording my 3DS XL screen with my 3DS cameras. I have no idea if my regular camera was out of commission or something but it happened. A bunch of people liked it.

At this point I'm just super used to this method of recording 3DS footage now. It was certainly a lot easier to set up, record and post videos more regularly, but looking back, it didn't really make my channel stand out too much. There isn't really any incentive to watch a guy stick a small camera in front of a 3DS for video guides over a professional Let's Player using capture cards.

On March 28th 2013 I posted this video of some Luigi's Mansion: Dark Moon footage in 1080p! I believe this footage was recorded with a smartphone that belonged to my parents at that time. The high quality was able to get rid of the wavy patterns on-screen but I never adopted it, either because it was too much a hassle to set up or I wouldn't always get access to it that easily.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pPv1Usnq6Tg

I went back to my tried-and-true regular method and a bunch of people were asking me what I used to record footage. So I recorded this video with my 3DS:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=G_fnjIH7QQM

Yeah I set my camera (a PowerShot S95) on an iPhone box and my 3DS XL on a dictionary. Those were the items that just happened to have the perfect height. Sometimes in life you gotta improvise.

In May 2013 I uploaded some stereoscopic 3D videos of 3DS games. This required...yes, putting the 3DS XL in front of a 3DS with the 3D effect on. (It wasn't the other way around because the 3DS screen was smaller and more suitable for recording purposes). It sorta worked, but y'know, low quality and everything. It was a neat idea though seeing as not a lot of stereoscopic 3D videos of 3DS games existed at that time.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oIjkw02zMcA

I also tried direct audio recording again with another video!

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VoSAV2kokSQ

I have no idea how I managed to get this to work, seeing as I record footage in my own room then edit the footage on the home computer in my living room outside, but I guess the method was to record the direct audio through a notebook computer situated next to me, then taking that audio and combining it through the camera footage on my home computer. It was probably too much work for me at that time.

Alright, it's fast-forward time, you've seen me do this recording setup for far too long now. 3 years to be exact.

In 2014, after watching Chuggaaconroy's Let's Play of Kid Icarus: Uprising, I picked up the game and it included a 3DS stand! I then tried to incorporate it into my recording setup so I would no longer have to memorize what specific combination of everyday household items I can use to prop my 3DS up. Here's the first video using it:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oz6V9ugDiUE

And then that's just what I basically used for the next 3 years as well. If it ain't broke (?), don't fix it.

Small interlude: We got a new camera during 2014, which is actually the one camera I still use today in core videos! In October, during a small event I did called Sakurai Month, I gave it a whirl in recording 3DS footage with a Kid Icarus: Uprising video.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=V8ztcTzJ5QM

And it looked REALLY good! The downside is I had to use a tripod to stand the camera up, which took away a lot of space for me to sit and see the screen properly, plus I wasn't able to record the bottom screen due to size constraints, and (I'm not 100% sure if this was done for the KIU video, but) the audio recording on that camera is a bit crappy, so I had to use my regular digital camera alongside it just so I can get the best audio. Even now in my core videos, the voices for the off-screen footage is recorded with my smartphone voice recorder.

Improvise. Adapt. Overcome. (Should I like invest in a lavalier mic lol)

But other than that, I've just used the ol' trusty PowerShot S95 for the rest of my 3DS videos. Occasionally I do some editing to get both screens at a decent size such as for my Smash 3DS videos, but that's about it.

And yeah, I used this method all the way up to early 2017. By that time, I was finishing up my high school finals, and did some reorganization in the apartment. I've also started covering topics other than 3DS games, such as other Nintendo hardware like the Game Boy systems (and the Switch was on the horizon as well!) so I felt that the quality of those videos clashed a bit with videos where I stick a camera in front of a 3DS screen.

Still, I had a running LP series at the time (Rhythm Heaven Megamix), and I tried using the new camera I got to record some footage as well, but it just wasn't cutting it for me. I felt that using these high quality cameras to do more comprehensive videos like filming hardware shots and the like was a better idea than using it to just do what I did for the past 6 years.

And thus the idea of the core videos were born!

I also got a used Elgato Capture Card on October 2017, allowing me to grab footage from the Switch and even some older systems. But to think I was done covering the 3DS would be dead wrong, as there was still a lot of potential topics I wanted to cover for the 3DS, just in a more sophisticated manner instead of just pointing a camera at a screen.

This gave birth to ideas for videos such as 'How Super Mario 3D Land Saved The 3DS', but to make those videos a reality, I would either have to nab footage by other people from the Internet (which I generally try to avoid unless absolutely necessary), or use a homebrew-enabled New 3DS which had a method of recording gameplay footage to a PC application over Wi-Fi.

While that sounded reasonable, it wasn't the best solution, as the video was often very choppy and had a few visual artifacts depending on your connection speed. The best videos I could get out of it were around the 20-30fps range. You can see a sample of homebrew 3DS capturing in this tweet:

https://twitter.com/AkfamilyhomeAK/status/975561895448002561

But still, it was better than off-screen footage in my opinion, so I did my footage recording with homebrew and went on my merry way...

Then I learned that Katsukity, the sole provider of 3DS capture cards at that time (since Loopy had stopped orders) had a price drop.


I took the hit and grabbed a 2DS from their store with a capture card pre-installed for 300 USD. Compared to using homebrew, using capture cards allowed for me to capture both a higher resolution and framerate, as well as allowing for capturing DS games (which isn't possible with homebrew). To sort of alleviate the cost, I sold the 2DS I had at the time to a real life friend who coincidentally didn't have a 3DS and wanted to get into its game library.

And since then, I think it's served me really well! Of course, as of this post there's really only like two core videos that are DS/3DS-focused, but there are still plenty of topics I want to talk about. The recent Photo Dojo video is also possibly the first ever non-Nintendo YouTube video about Photo Dojo in which footage was recorded with a capture card!

It has its downsides, such as the direct audio capturing being a little wonky unless you use an audio cable (which would be a bit of a hassle with my current setup), but I feel like it will still be serving me for quite a few years to come.

Since then, Katsukity has gone bankrupt (sadly unsurprising given the REALLY niche market of their products), and there isn't really a new source of 3DS capture cards at this time. Hopefully the resale values for them won't skyrocket like crazy, but if you're dead set on getting one no matter the cost, aside from second-hand listings, Merki (the European distributor for 3DS capture cards) still have old 3DS XL capture cards in stock, but you'll have to ship your system to them, so the shipping costs might add up.

But for creators who are starting out, if you want to make content using the 3DS, you can either go the homebrew capture route (if your 3DS is of the "New" variety) or just use a smartphone camera, since most can do at least 1080p nowadays. I mean, I got by with using a crappy camera for 6 years. :]

But anyway, hope this gave you a fun little insight into my history of struggling with capturing handheld footage! I think it's a nice example of equipment quality not being the most important thing for creators, even with simple tools and software, you can still make content that's pretty dang good. Even now, my setup is still evolving, and your support means I will be able to improve it through things such as better tripods and microphones, as well as more things of interest to cover, so I must thank you all once again!

If you have any further questions about footage capturing, don't hesitate to ask me. :)

Chance to cameo in my next core video! 2019-04-19T08:34:30+00:00close

As my last Patreon post detailed, my next core video will be about the DSiWare fighting game Photo Dojo. Last time I surveyed about preferred methods for appearing in that video as a character cameo, and a majority expressed interest while not owning a copy of the game themselves. Thus, here are the plans if you're interested in making an appearance:

Attached is a template for some of the Photo Dojo character poses. You are able to fill them up however you like (either as a photo or a drawing depending on preference) and they will be used as cameo character appearances in one section of the core video!

In addition, while this is optional, you can also send me links to audio recordings for these fighters if you wish. To save time, only sounds for ATTACKING and BEING HURT are needed. If you would like to give your character more lively, feel free to do so! (If you prefer to not submit audio, then the character will be mute.)

You can submit your photos either through the replies of this post (I'm not sure if they support embedding them though, so you'll need to supply a link), or in the #photo-dojo-submissions channel in my Discord server if you're in it!

Also, I will only be accepting a maximum of 5 submissions due to the in-game fighter limit plus some other needs for the video. In the case that more than 5 are submitted, I may not be able to use all submissions, so apologies in advance!

That's about it for now. $2+ patrons should hopefully hear more about the work in progress soon! Thank you again for the support. :)

I made a very high quality Photo Dojo character based on the main character from the first game I ever created when I was 14 called "Blocky Schootie". I didn't have much time but here is a very ugly recreation of my character: https://imgur.com/uInfRyq
Poll: Cameo in upcoming core video 2019-04-15T14:12:10+00:00

My next core video will be a look at Photo Dojo, a fighting game for the DSi (and 3DS) where you are able to take photos of yourself and others and put them in a fighting game!

In preparation it, I have been considering an idea where patrons are able to cameo in the video as in-game characters. Therefore, I would like to do a little surveying and ask for your opinions in the following poll below.

Do you have the Photo Dojo game, and are you interested in cameoing in the next video, either with your likeness (appearance + voice), or without it (possibly as a submitted character drawing)?

I will release more details soon once a majority of people have responded. Thanks in advance!

The making of Super Mario Odyssey Bloopers 2019-04-06T10:44:38+00:00

Heyo! If you haven't seen my April Fools special for this year, you can check it out at the link below:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-u0ElTm7cCs

For this year's video, I wanted to a small throwback to the Mario 64 bloopers of old, including those posted on my channel from 2009:

Back then, I made videos on a Windows XP netbook with Project64, Windows Movie Maker and HyperCam 2. I still have it to this day! Everyone loves to meme about these tools, but that really is the best tool for a stupid child trying to get into video-making like 2009 me. (I did graduate to Fraps and VideoStudio later on though.)

The idea for Mario Odyssey Bloopers came from this tweet I made in July 2018. That single tweet took me like half an hour to prepare correctly, but with that attempted once I felt it would be neat to make a full fledged blooper video for Mario Odyssey with 2009 tools.

https://twitter.com/akfamilyhomeak/status/1021794574040162304

My primary computer right now is a MacBook, so obviously I had to get Windows XP running on a virtual machine, as well as HyperCam 2. However, I wanted to use the unregistered variant which added the watermark we all know and love, and turns out the current official download for HyperCam 2 was made free for worldwide usage! I'm pretty sure I ended up digging up a copy of Unregistered HyperCam 2 from an old USB drive.

To obtain the game footage, I obviously first recorded it with my capture card (in crisp 480p no less), but getting it to work in Windows Movie Maker proved to be a bit of a problem. It wouldn't accept MP4s, and even using converters to convert it into AVI and WMV files didn't work either. I could play them in an XP version of VLC media player, but Windows Movie Maker would refuse them.

My final solution ended up being uploading the captured footage to Streamable, accessing Streamable from my XP virtual machine THEN recording the video stream with Unregistered HyperCam 2. As an unintentional downside (or benefit?) it couldn't directly access my system audio, so it captured crappy speaker audio instead which is what you heard in the final product.

Revisiting Windows Movie Maker was certainly fun. You have a video track (audio + video), a second audio track for background music or sound effects, and a overlay layer for floating text. That's it. To overlay something on top of a video that wasn't text, you'd have to capture that frame and edit it in Paint or something. That's what I tried to do with Toadette holding the Super Crown, but it proved to be a bit too time-consuming with XP Paint. (You also can't insert blank spaces between clips, but you can sidestep that by using a black picture.)

Windows Movie Maker also ended up cutting all my captured video footage into multiple 5-20 second chunks for some reason. I have no idea if that's what it's normally supposed to do or it's because my captured footage was too long for it to handle, but that was weird.

Also my virtual machine didn't like the concept of me running Windows Movie Maker at all so my screen preview looked like this the entire time.

There were multiple staple elements of Super Mario 64 bloopers from the early days that I wanted to incorporate into my video (obvious exception for some offensive jokes/terms that were more prevalent in the early days of the Internet and are better left in the past):

  • Unregistered HyperCam 2 (duh)
  • Mario soundbites (Yes that includes 'mama-******', I had to)
  • Scatman (Scatman's World was chosen over Ski-Ba-Bop-Ba-Dop-Bop because I feel it's a bit underrated)
  • Wacky Movie Maker transitions
  • A cut to Mario Kart footage on Royal Raceway (why did you block off the castle Nintendo)

I suppose the only other major element from Mario 64 bloopers I couldn't include are the use of Gameshark codes, because, you know, I don't have a hacked Switch.

Anyway, that's about it! I really tried to capture the feeling that this whole video was written in 2009. (stuff like the editor's note joke came by on a whim, I was actually thinking of how to obscure the text bubbles while keeping a good camera angle when I just said screw it) I hope you enjoyed watching all that nonsense though!

And fun fact for the uninitiated, the intro to the video is my very first YouTube intro from 2009. Help it's been 10 years.

(Less sad fun fact: 10% of the stuff you see in this video was added in outside of Windows Movie Maker. It was possible to make the entire thing in Windows Movie Maker but I made a few small tweaks, such as fixing mistakes where I accidentally used Registered HyperCam 2 as well as adding in a higher quality version of the intro.)

Anyway, going off on a side tangent to talk a little bit 'bout the future! Near the end of April, I'll be clearing off my final college projects for the semester. Until then, I've been dabbling a bit in video scripts when I have the time. In addition, I've been invited by a certain group to do voice-over narration for a game history video, so if all goes well, hopefully you'll be seeing that soon as well!

If you have other questions about working with Windows Movie Maker in 2019 or the production of Super Mario Odyssey Bloopers in general, feel free to ask in the comments! With that said, catch you guys later, and thank you all once again for your support! :)

"game history video" my mind goes right to Did You Know Gaming? Regardless, the process you went through to make the video was fascinating, I was wondering how much of the video was genuinely made in WMM (turns out more than I was expecting). Great work!

I need your suggestions... 2019-03-19T08:53:16+00:00close

First of all, shhhh, don't tell anyone.

For this year's April Fools, I'm planning on revisiting my roots and creating a 2009-style bloopers video for Super Mario Odyssey, complete with Unregistered Hypercam 2 and Windows Movie Maker! It will be similar in style to my old YouTube videos from that year as well as an expanded concept of the above tweet I made a while back.

With that said, I'm looking for suggestions to any potential storyline or story elements to add into it! It can be completely nonsensical (it is a Mario blooper video after all), so let me know any ideas you would like to see added! References to old SM64 content (such as Scatman John songs or other content creators) are also appreciated!

In addition to replying to this post, you can also discuss and suggest ideas in the #patron-lounge channel of my Discord channel if you are in it.

See you guys (hopefully) near April Fools! ;)

IMPORTANT: Endslate patron names 2019-02-06T10:12:33+00:00

Hey, patrons! As you may have already known one of the Patreon perks is getting your name included in the endscreen at the end of my videos. I would like to announce a small change to how patron names will be presented.

Currently, patron names are based on their current name on the Patreon website at the time of a video's creation. However, as patrons change names occasionally, it becomes a bit harder for me to keep track of new names. Therefore I'd like to implement some new measures in finalizing consistent patron names.

For existing patrons, **you may let me know what name you would prefer on the endscreen by leaving it in the comments of this post**. You can also let me know your preferred name through other means such as the Discord server. If you do not respond by the name the next core video has completed production, your current username on the Patreon website as of that time will be used instead.

Your preferred name will be placed on the endscreen regardless of your future name changes on Discord and Patreon, unless you directly request that your name be changed through private message.

For new patrons, their default name on the endscreen will be their Patreon username at the time of signing up, unless they specify a new preferred name through the above methods.

Hopefully this hasn't been too confusing for you! Thanks once again for your continued support, and please look forward to the next core video. :)

Happy (almost) February!

The sad news is that unfortunately I wasn't able to meet the original planned deadline I set for the Game Boy Camera video. I sincerely apologize for this, the past weeks have only just given me the rare opportunity to record the footage I need.

The good news is that all the essential camera and software footage has been captured! And in silky smooth 60 fra--

*checks camera*

-- dynamic fps up to 50! Sorry, I'm still trying to figure out the camera I've been using for 5 years for some reason. Still, this is a decent enough upgrade!

Here's a small gag to tide you over to when I have more progress on voice recording and editing!

So here it is! My casual ramble about my thoughts on the core video projects I've released this year. I've released this in audio form first as I'll be a bit busy within the next 2 days to do more editing on it, and it's fairly late at night right now as I'm typing this.

That being said, I hope you can excuse my weird rambling! Just think of it as a podcast or something. *sigh* This is why I would never do livestreams for things like this.

Have a wonderful new year!

Even 7 years after its release, the Nintendo 3DS is still alive! (For better or worse.) To celebrate its longevity, let's take a look at its rocky beginnings and how Nintendo's biggest star eventually came to avert its fate. Special thanks to A Blob for providing the footage for the Super Mario Galaxy 2 Beginner's DVD as well as helping with the script!

Full early draft of my next core video! 2018-11-16T11:30:49+00:00close

The full early draft of my next core video, 'How Super Mario 3D Land Saved the 3DS', is now finally available to watch! Yes, with the old voice and footage recordings. I will be re-editing this from the beginning to include updated footage plus changes to the script since then.

Some of the jokes and segments may not be in the final product, so if you want to, feel free to compare this to the final product once it's done.

Akfamilyhome's WarioWare D.I.Y. Covers Vol. 2 - Early Access! 2018-11-07T11:15:52+00:00

Yes, here it is! The final version of my second D.I.Y. cover album is now available early for all Patreon patrons!

This album features 11 tracks from A Cruel Angel's Thesis from Neon Genesis Evangelion to The Legend from Deltarune. Plus, there's some new bonus content as well:

- Two bonus mini covers that you may or may not have heard before: "Your Best Friend - Undertale" and "Tutorial - Cuphead"

- Two unfinished cover drafts of "Athletic Theme - Super Mario Bros. 3" and "Still Alive - Portal" (That Mario 3 one dates back to 2013. I dunno what happened to it)

- And of course, MIO files for all the covers (even the bonus ones!) so you can import them into your own WarioWare D.I.Y. save file to tinker with!

The above link is the download for the final version of the album, so you can safely place it in your MP3 player of choice to listen whenever you want. And compared to the previous Patreon-exclusive version, some volume balancing improvements have been made to other covers.

Enjoy!

(The actual) new sneak peek at my new core video! 2018-06-08T14:35:39+00:00close

My next core video is all about the hoaxes and fake leaks of Pablo Belmonte that fooled (most of) the Internet in its early years! This sneak peek contains the full segment to the Nintendo On, the speculated VR successor to the GameCube.

A big ol' update 2018-06-06T15:42:41+00:00

Heyo! My ped...*ahem*...I mean, Patreon-exclusive Discord server is now available to ALL patrons! So now in addition to getting early access to videos, $1+ patrons can now also join in the Discord server and chat with me as well as other fellow patrons! You can also join server-exclusive activities, like participating in a live chat during the upcoming Nintendo E3 2018 presentation! I hope this place can get more lively someday down the road! :)

For all future new patrons, as long as your account is linked up to Discord, you should automatically receive an instant invite to the server.

New video! 2018-05-09T18:53:22+00:00close

Well, it's not exactly 'new' per se, since I'm still brainstorming ideas for core videos, but I've re-edited and put together some of my Mario Odyssey Twitter videos into a new montage compilation! I guess you could say it's a new style of video for this channel. I'll be giving it the finishing touches to go public soon, but you can catch an early look at it right now.

Oh, and uh, major spoilers for Super Mario Odyssey, obviously. You've been warned!

What exactly did you mean by "major spoilers"? I thought that you were going to show end/post-game stuff.

Some of the stuff in this video is from the post-game. There isn't any from the end-game though. :P
Core video scripts: Pack 1 2018-04-12T15:41:24+00:00

Have you ever wanted to *read* my videos instead?

No?

Uhhhhh...

Well, anyway, I've decided to release a pack containing my original core video scripts for all $1+ patrons! These are the scripts originally written for all of the core videos currently on my channel as of this post, as well as a special unused script for a review of the FC Pocket Bootleg that I never got around to completing! (It was intended to be the second core video. If I ever do resume it, I'll probably start it from scratch.)

There are some minor differences in these scripts than the final product, so have fun comparing them! I hope you can gain some insight from these production materials. :)

More upcoming videos and plans 2018-04-09T01:25:18+00:00

As of this post, all of my patrons currently have access to the Discord server where I post YouTube updates. In the case that there are new patrons who don't, however, here's my list of upcoming video plans I've shared recently!

Untitled Nintendo Labo Variety Kit video

A video on the Nintendo Labo Variety Kit will be made once it comes out! It will most likely be a review. Labo is the kind of thing that people still on the fence about buying one wouldn't be sure until they try it out themselves, so I'm hoping I could make a video that shows the things you can do with it and whether or not it's worth the value.

Untitled Game Boy Camera retrospective

I've decided to take a look at the Game Boy Camera since I now own physical versions of both the US and Japanese releases! I know that there are already GB Camera videos out there so I want to go a bit more in-depth with this one and covering more small details and (if possible) the history of its conception!

2018 Core Video Year In Review

This year's core video year in review will also take the form of a video, uploaded at the end of the year!

I'm taking a break from videos at the moment since I have a list of college projects to get done before the end of April, but I hope I can get back to doing them this summer!

All HK game stores sell imports. We'll get them just like any other video game, probably

Where will you import Labo from?
