Nice OP, I especially like the breakdown of the ADs. I was just telling a friend yesterday that Urakawa started out on the show giving some shaky advice, but by season 4 was Arino's go-to guy. Which of course culminated in one of the funniest punch lines ever in the Ninja Gaiden episode.

Haha, I may have to go to this. For the even they're having a bunch of people cosplaying as Kachou around Akihabara, and when fans find three of them and get a stamp from each, they go to the head office and get a Christmas card with a message from the staff.
Is the stamp thing because they are pretending to be office workers?

I would also sort of assume that the stamp thing is for pretty much the same reason that things like buy-ten-get-one cards at stores use them: a stamp is easy to use as much as you have to, it's a moderate pain in the rear end to fake, and unlike paper stamps you don't have to worry about whether you had enough of them printed or wasted money printing too many (worst-case scenario you send someone to get you more ink). Presumably the reason for hanko specifically is because that's the style of stamp Japanese people are used to, but you don't really need to dig too deep into cultural reasons for why they're using stamps (like "because they're office workers") - it's because stamps are pretty much an obvious and practical way to handle a promotion where you have to confirm checking in with a bunch of people.
Yeah I wasn't trying to be a jackass - the only time I've seen ink stamps was for verifying legal documents or scrapbooking. Therefore didn't know whether substituting stamps for autographs was specific to GCCX or a general trend.

My backlog of GCCX episodes has gotten embarassingly large. You guys are friggin amazing!
I made it up to Street Fighter and Castlevania 3. Street Fighter is definitely one of my favorite episodes now.

It would be pretty rad if the massive episode list could be split into seasons.

After reading the AD's bios I was curious to see what all the fuss over Inoko MAX was, but knowing he debuted in the 5th season didn't help at all.
Watch Umihare Kawase, Contra, and Bonanza Brothers immediately.

Thanks for the link, I can't believe there are only 3 unsubbed episodes out of the first 73! Pretty soon I will have seen more episodes of GCCX than MST3K.

MAN that Yuuyu Quiz was brutal. That's gotta be the biggest quiz team of the series.. right??? Arino, Toujima, Nakayama, Abe, Urakawa, Kibe, and the 2 other dudes I forget!!!

How do you play the downloaded videos on here? I tried Winzip and Windows Media Player and a bunch of other programs and none of them played anything. Is there a weird video player I need off the internet?

I am 100% convinced that it's her shtick and that she's absolutely fine with it and that she most likely suggested the shtick herself so she wouldn't feel awkward about being on air. And I also agree that it doesn't make it okay (or funny); watching it makes me uncomfortable as hell, but at least they are mercifully short sections of the show to get through.
It was kinda funny when she got stuck in that kid's ride... I think any adult would have gotten stuck in that thing.

And season eight is in the can. That ends the completely untranslated standard definition episodes and means that you can now watch 112 consecutive episodes of Game Center CX.

Enjoy Mendel Palace, brought to you by Nagoyan and checked by Hirayuki.

Thanks again for all the effort you guys! Very curious about the GCCX movie. I thought the kacho was usually pretty awkward around kids though.

Hey guys, what would be a good episode from the DVD to show someone who's never seen GCCX before? My aunt got the DVD for my birthday, and we're probably going to watch it together.
If she likes video games, Ninja Gaiden. If not, probably Battle Golfer Yui.

The Catch Copy game is my favorite segment. I really like Ring Ring Tactics, but watching the perfectly composed Takeda lose it repeatedly to Nakayama's overcomplicated explanations is just amazing.

I voted for Punch Out because it's one of my top five episodes, and I'm hoping for a Nakayama vs. InokoMAX revenge match. Even though he doesn't appear in the Japanese game, maybe they could blow the budget hiring AD Mike Tyson.
Suddenly, that man appears.

That was hilarious.
