Fair enough, I hadn't heard it pronounced that way.

What's with the hate on a longtime forum member (Satoshi Matrix)?


That would be ex-member due to screwing people over with trades by simply not sending for months, then ignoring them completely.

Even before that I was bugged by the fact that he blew in NES carts in every video I watched, often before even plugging them in. THis included into non toaster style NES that shouldn't 'need' it if they're clean. I calmly explained that blowing in carts was the actual problem, that the system and carts should be cleaned, and then things would be fine and should never blow in carts again. He argued that you 'always have to blow in them', ignoring all evidence to the contrary to the point of being an ass about it. So I was previously annoyed that anyone watching his videos will likely continue the bullshit of blowing in carts. Then he screwed people over on trades (at least 2, based off feedback total) and didn't care.

Anyway, video answered question sort of though. Back on track.

ERMAHGERD!! he didn't pause the vid and/or make an edit to go and professionally clean his currently nonworking NES game. Not part of the retro master race i guess.


I wouldn't be a huge fan of them for those reasons, but that would just cause me to not bother watching and if someone else watched them, fine. My reasons are as noted.

That makes more sense. I guess I missed all that drama somehow.

Yep, I actually did a trade with him in person when I was on vacation in Niagara Falls. Met him, shook his hand, chatted with him about retro games and everything. Then he screwed me over a few weeks later with a shipment of stuff I sent to him to save him on customs and receive things from companies who didn't ship to Canada. He finally paid me back after about a year and the moderators here on Racketboy put pressure on him. Can't believe he would do that to a "friend", I used to chat with him on messenger all the time. Guess you never really know....
