Can someone explain what the gimmick was with the rainbow in the episode?

It's the logo for Ametalk, a popular late-night variety show. Arino had to finish by 9:30 in order to appear on it.

Ah, that must've been shot before the Game Center Geinen episode of Ametalk I watched the RAW of a couple days ago. Fun episode, too.

Arino said he didn't get excited about the Mario Maker live challenge because they didn't give him ice cream, so we'll see if they learned from their mistake or not.

The GCCX news was that the game store they filmed movie scenes at closed last December. They visited again, and the store staff gave them all their games and systems, including a Famicom modem.

The big announcement was that Yuuko Takeda, the usual segment narrator, is leaving Fuji TV, and thus, the show.

More once I get to work.

I feel like that's not as big of deal now that a season break is everyone taking a month off instead of Arino goes off to shoot another show for a while.

Interesting. LC(-GCCX) does ring a bell, IIRC he /they did a few episodes and Nintendo challenges translations some time ago.

I have no idea what they're going on about on the comments so I'll leave it at that. Gotta check out the episode, though.

e: I can't quite put my finger on as to why, but it feels like it's a bit harder to follow the the subs on that release. I get that they were trying to match the color on the original japanese text on the sub, but for me, the white text is a bit disorienting.

I think the subs are slightly too fast.

On GCCX Raws I also found that they've added the SA-GCCX subs to better quality raws for three episodes, which I at least didn't know about. Good to get some better quality for those subbed eps Here they are if anyone's interested: Gimmick, Tant-R, Super Mario Land.

About the Wizards & Warriors episode itself: I thought the "younger female staff member" gimmick got old pretty fast. They just kept repeating it over and over.

I thoroughly enjoyed this episode, including that part, though it may of course be grating to some in that it is a bit sexist, but that is Japan.

I have to second this, watching the HD version of Tant-R is like watching a whole new episode as well.

True, that and the "the show might be cancelled next season!" vibe has died down.

Hey, I know this is a long shot but does anyone remember the game center Arino went to that had a bunch of F-Zero AX machines? I'm going to be visiting Japan in two weeks and I was hoping to get to play them/maybe see some of the cool little spots that have been on the show.

I found this Google Map some time ago (might be listed in the first post of this discussion, or on the one on NeoGaf) with all (or most) of the TamaGe places from the first 12-15 seasons: https://www.google.com/maps/d/viewe...09099999989&z=2

The list is mostly in the order of episode airings – which episode was the F-Zero AX in?

When I went a few years ago, I found an AX standup cabinet in Akihabara, maybe at the Club Sega? Of course, it wasn't working, so I played Crazy Taxi instead. Take some pictures if you find a machine!

Keep your energy high with my Beast Power Rap

Does anyone have the LC-GCCX files Excitebike 3D and Super Metroid Part 3? None of the links here are getting them to me and I figured someone might could just toss them on a Dropbox or something.

Edit: The torrent for Super Metroid finished so the only one I need is Excitebike 3D.

Bonus edit: Excitebike 3D finally finished, so it looks like it only took like 3 days for a 126 MB file to download. If anyone needs either of them let me know.

Hamaguchi is definitely kept in the loop, as evidenced by Game Center DX. Here's the episode where he plays Breath of the Wild for Nintendo.

I would love to see some gcdx subs at some point (even if of poor quality), because I will say that even without really understanding what he is on about Hamaguchi has a delivery which makes it sound funny anyway.

Keep in mind, we're giving you a very narrow view of things. Hamaguchi does all sorts of things, too. I don't think he has any solo project as successful as GCCX (which in fairness, is more cult success than giant hit), he's not the Garfunkel of the duo by any stretch.

How much do you want it?

There are times in Tamage where people ask Arino where Hamaguchi is, or say Hamaguchi's catchphrase to him ("totta-do" which I've translated as "I caught it," "I done caught it," "catch of the day," etc. dangit Hamaguchi, please get a catchphrase that's easier to translate).
