It Came From The Collection #7: Prince of Persia Warrior Within Pre-Order Artbook


EPISODE 07: Prince of Persia Warrior Within Pre-Order Artbook
If you were on board for the Prince’s darker, more emo turn, then this 2004 pre-order artbook is right up your alley. Let’s take a 4K look at some concept art and reminisce about the early-2000’s PC boxart unification (with special appearances by Half-Life 2 and Tribes Vengeance).

✨ 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. Follow the series on my channel and check out more of my collection on Instagram.

Let’s Talk About “Day One-itis & the Pre-Order Itch” with Fwends [Ep.004]

Episode 004: Day One-itis & the Pre-Order Itch where Rob & Shawn issue the edict: thou shall not pre-order games or buy on Day One… unless, ya know, you want to. Just do it for you and not because of an upsell or an ad. Well, this didn’t solve anything!

About Us and the Show
Age-old friend Rob and I haven’t recorded much together since the days of NfamousGamers back in 2009. The site is long gone now but our five episodes remain online, as does Rob’s guest spot on an early GameLuv PodShot episode.

That’s not to say we haven’t kept in touch. Across town and across the country we IM and chat pretty regularly but just finally decided to sync up in real-time to record a new (hopefully weekly) show. Based on Rob’s “Let’s Talk About it” videos, the new show will focus on a single topic each episode, frequently about gaming but anything is up for discussion. Right now you can find it on either of our YouTube channels (mine | his) but I’m going to eventually get it up on the podcast circuit so you can subscribe wherever you listen to shows.

There are Battletoads skins for Kinect Sports Rivals?!


Whoa, hey! When did Rare start acknowledging they created Battletoads in public again? It seems like all their work at Nintendo is very hush-hush from a marketing/PR standpoint and rarely gets mentioned by Microsoft anymore. But here we are, getting Battletoads branded outfits for Kinect Sports Rivals pre-orders.

Not being one who pre-orders or frequents GameStop, this e-mail I got this morning is the first I’d heard of it (the outfits are GameStop exclusives). So — ya know — Battletoads remake confirmed, right?
