It Came From The Collection #15: Club Turbo Catalogs

 

EPISODE 15
I loved receiving these Club Duo catalogs in the mail back in the 90’s and nowadays it serves as a snapshot of what was happening between NEC and TTi between 1992 and 1993, and how the companies displayed their software lineup to the U.S. audience. Let’s flip through three volumes and see how things evolved. Bonus! There’s a pair of Macross games that were planned for release outside of Japan that never actually happened, thanks to Harmony Gold.

✨ About the Show 
In hopes of bringing something a little more unique to YouTube I started ‘It Came From The Collection‘ to chronicle the gaming ephemera I’ve amassed over the years: flyers and pamphlets, pre-order tchotchkes, toys, posters, and all kinds of marketing paperwork.

PlayStation “Serious Butt” Commercial ‘U R Not (red)e’ 📺

When the original PlayStation launched in the U.S. the attitude was 1000% off the charts. Everything was a spastic montage of oversaturated, blown out, footage of people in “extreme” situations and taglines meant to “challenge the players”. In this one we’re told the good news and the bad news about these early PlayStation titles and if you’re quick enough you can even grab a few cheat codes.

📺 About the Show 📺
It Came From The Collection -TV- is a supplemental series to my hands-on videos. These clips, commercials, and programs go live every Saturday morning to recapture the spirit of the legendary cartoon lineups and laser-focused marketing aimed at young minds. I’ve tried to clean up the picture and sound, and render them at 1080p for a more viewable presentation. ICFTC -TV- ! Part of a nutritious breakfast!
