About You Can Play This

From Justin "Jew Wario" Carmical:

"I have been importing games since I first got my NES in 1989 (Funco Land, oh how we miss you) and I have been trying to get friends interested in these games for quite some time.

It wasn't until I started watching Lee's 'Still Gaming' that I thought to myself: man, I can do that! He really inspired me.

So I thought about what a good show would be for me to do, and I thought of my collection and all the games I think people would enjoy even though they're in Japanese. I try to stay away from games that require walkthroughs as I think the enjoyment is lost there.

I took games that interested me from the Japanese TV show "GameCenter CX" (as those were some of the classic Japanese games of the time) and did my first three videos and put them on the TGWTG site. People liked them, so I did more.

I liked how in the TV show 'Good Eats' Alton Brown introduces the dish at the beginning and he gets cut off as he says "Good Eats"... so I thought of doing that for my review openings.

My friend Jonathan Mann (a.k.a. Game Jew) allowed me to use the "Gates of Thunder" song as the "YCPT Quickies" song, and that has made me a happy panda indeed.

The theme song is "Funk Fujiyama" by "Kome Kome Club". It's a song about thought that the world has about Japan and how they are kind-of stuck in a niche that's undeserving.

"Everybody samurai, sushi, geisha."

I thought it would be very appropriate for the show since people have a stigma about Japanese games: that they're super-weird, unplayable, or just poor quality. I want to show that they're entertaining and often better than American games.

As to the show itself, I'm actually VERY surprised so many people like it. But it does make me happy that people look forward to it and that so many of my favorite reviewers like the show.

I would like to find some indy-musician who could make a theme song for me, but I feel a bit pretentious asking someone. If I could find an indy-Japanese artist to do a theme song, THAT would be AWESOME!"
