Japan Experience Quasi-ReviewEditorial

Not sure if you should buy PGC's new video CD set? Jonny cuts through the hype to give you a straight answer.
As you may know, we just started selling a 2-CD video documentary that Billy and (MailMan) Mike Hrusecky made of Billy’s experience in Japan…Spaceworld, Akihabara, NCL Invasion, and of course, the Japanese GameCube Launch. Some of us staff have had the video for a few days, and I thought it would be a good idea if I gave a sort of review for it. Sure, I have a little bias, but I wasn’t in Japan for these events, and I’m a hardcore Nintendo fan, so I figure some of you might be able to relate to my opinion. I told Billy I would do it on one condition: that I could be honest. So don’t expect an overly gushy, drooling account of all the zany stuff that happens on the video…I’m more interested in being realistic, highlighting the best parts, and making note of some things that may not appeal to everyone. And of course, we hope that by giving you all a clearer picture of what’s on the video, some of you may get interested and decide to buy it.Read more...
