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).

EPISODE 06: Nintendo Wii Light up Target Giftcard + Teardown
I’ve had this Target giftcard since 2006 but it stopped lighting up several years ago. Looks like it’s time to tear it down and see what makes it tick… err, glow!

EPISODE 5: The Whole Spin on Sega CD Pamphlet (1992)

Want to READ about what makes the Sega CD so rad? Who needs screenshots or even marketing artwork when you’ve got prose!? It’s interstellar hyperbole in a pocket-sized pamphlet on this episode of It Came From The Collection.

Oops! My YouTube Channel might be gone for good

Oops! My YouTube Channel might be gone for good

If you were the kind of person to keep up with GameLuv on even a semi-regular basis, you might have noticed some disgusting gray YouTube thumbnails popping up across the site. Unfortunately, my YouTube account which I’ve had since 2006 has been terminated and it took nearly 2,000 videos down with it. How’d it happen? I’m still hopeful it’s a case of mistaken identity.

Last year my separate Delisted Games YouTube channel got hit with an infringement claim and was terminated. I then created a new, also separate account linked to my main YouTube channel to start rebuilding. After some time the sub-channel was logged out of my main account. I assume it was for security reasons because I hadn’t switched over to it for a few months and when I went to reconnect it a few weeks ago it must’ve tipped off the YouTube algorithm.

Possibly because both channels were named “Delisted Games”, the bot mismatched my totally-legit and still-active Delisted channel with the one that was banished in 2017. That kind of behavior is apparently a no-no in the YouTube EULA and so it dragged my main account down with it. That was a frantic and frightening thing to discover on a random Wednesday evening.

It’s been nearly a week since I sent YouTube my carefully measured appeal and I’m hoping the channel will be reinstated sometime soon. If not, the appeals will continue. If that still doesn’t work, well, I’ve got a lot of re-uploading to do… somewhere. DTube maybe? Until this shakes out please forgiven the gross gray thumbnails littering the site, and if you’d like to help me rebuild, follow along on the new Delisted channel. Even if I get my original channel back I’ll be actively using that one from now on for delisted work. I think a little decentralization is in order so 100% of my efforts aren’t totally lost again.

EPISODE 4: Game Boy Advance SP “Actual Size” Pamphlet

Somebody flattened my Game Boy Advance SP! No, wait, it’s just a flat, fold-out pamphlet printed “actual size” which is a brilliant marketing choice for several reasons. Check it out up close and personal and now in 4K resolution and with better-than-ever audio. Let me know what you think of the quality and production.
