    Frickin' love your stuff Ben :D

    But I thought Indigo Prophesy was called Fahrenheit in France? (or was that the US)

    yeah it was Farenheit, but people would recognonize it better with "Indigo Prophecy"

    I want to go to Paris to kick some ass! Sadly, I can't... But I got some studio mates going to Angouleme for a comics festival. Maybe they'll kick some ass there. B)

    Holy fish and chips! That is so awesome! Anyway, if you're planning on attending the festival, my crew will be at the 656 Comics table F39, Espace BD Alternative (Place New York), 37 Festival International de la Bande Dessinee, January 28 -31. Drop by and they'll hook you up with some goodies ;)

    Btw, I'm the dude who drew this...

    There's no Canada like French Canada. It's the best Canada in the land.

    The other Canada is an ass-hole Canada, if you lived there for a day you'd understand.

    French Canadians are a joke.

    If your Canadian I'm ashamed for us on your behalf. If not, screw you.

    Seeing Beary and Ben switch places like that for once was funny XD

    Great video, always nice to see the little guy's efforts.

    Although you did forget to list one of the greatest French games ever: Little Big Adventure.

    That was such a lol-moment right now:

    Just as he was saying: "This is what goes through your mind" the loading circle off the player popped up. :lol:
  • forteblast
    OK, so you pretty much nailed what we think of the French.
    But what do YOU think of Americans? That we're all mindless gun-toting cowboy rednecks? Huh? Huh?!?
    ... that's just Texas.

    Life wouldn't be fun if it weren't for silly stereotypes to tease each other with.

    Except for when people use those stereotypes to be just plain mean to people. Then they deserve to get their asses kicked.

    [color=#bd527b] There sure are allot of Conan uses lately. Did the movie just get old enough to pass into Public Domain or something?[/color]

    You are quickly becoming the king of mindfucks, Ben. Also... I had no idea you were that well endowed. :0

    Dude that Streets of Fury game is awesome, definitely a must download, I shit you not.

    Looking forward to your Elevator Action Returns vid, I have that game and it is really good.


    I'd like to personally thank the French for Out of this World (or Another World) and Flashback...my all time favorite old school games. :cheer:

    That mindfuck did a number on me, "laying in the corner"
  • Mobius
    Ah, Elevator Action! Played the hell out of that one in the arcades.

    Just don't dance half naked inside an elevator, please? :unsure:

    Games seem relly interesting, especially for such a low price.
    When most people think or talk french developers it´s Ubisoft, its nice of you show some indie stuff for a change.
    If you have the chance do something similar for the UK or other european countrys. Heck could be the idea for your 10. show to talk about stuff like that.
  • DokDicer
    So france is low-def?^^

    It;s amazing how you can really educate me about these indie games and still make me laugh a bunch. Sadly, do not own a 360, but I would love to check Streets of Fury out. Maybe if it reaches PSN.

    Soon available for the PC ;)
  • GaussRiemann
    I just looked up some of the old shooter games you mentioned, Benzaie. Looking at the year of release, it seems to have been quite a while since the last great western sidescolling shooter. ;-)
    I must say that from all these old games I only knew Xenon 2 before, but I never had an Amiga or Atari though, and the PC was not a good platform for these type of games back in the day.

    You really know how to combine informative and funny to same video and its amazing. Well Streets of Fury was not so impressive but those other two made me want to play them.

    Why are you so talented?

    Anyway thank you General Lafayette. Toki was the shit, glad that it's coming back. I'm immersed to my eyeballs in shooters, (not FPS) so I might give that first game a shot. Even though I can't really beat any of them but the new 1942.

    Hmm, nazis ban all games... I never thought of it that way. Nothing wrong with Probotector and Shadow Warriors though.

  • Apathetic One  - hahaa
    You mean your vagina, right?
  • ChibiRico  - Wow, all I can say is...
    La ligne ''Ils sont fous ces japonais'' me fait penser a Obélix. Et il y avait pas déja un jeu appeler Street of Fury sur SNES/SFanicom?

    Yeah, I have the balls to speack french, **** on that!
  • Anime109
    I 5 stared this as soon as i saw benzaie in his pants! Awesome vid =) Hope to see some more soon!
  • Le Baiser Salé  - Hi compatriot!
    Salutations fier compatriote!
    Pas mal...
    Mais les champignons sans la blanquette qui va avec, quelle honte!

    SUBTITLES IN BENZAIE STYLE*:

    Hi dear fellow!

    First time I comment a video, as I can assume it's the only one I entirely understood...We have the same references, and the same accent.

    A really great job with this one. Funny, and instructive.
    One day, I should think about buying a TV, that I can think about buying a Xbox then...

    Joe is such a fucking genius. Man I love that guy!

    A new Shooter in the style of the Cream of the '64 and Amiga?

    Yes, Project X, X-out, Blood Money, Xenon 2 Megablast, all of these were awesome games, even if I lacked the skill to get very far in them. But Blood Money title Theme on C64 was awesome.
  • Troop18546
    Wow, those games really do suck ass. I mean wow

    Ah... Another reason to love the French. I would love to see you review French films at some point, that would be great... starting with my fav action film... Banlieue 13.
