Kaisercade: The Last Reviewer on EARTH! Episode #0 – Deleted Scenes Special

The debut episode of Kaisercade is here and he is opening up the show with a Deleted Scenes Special?  Yup, indeed I am.  Hi, I’m James T. Kaiser and welcome to the 0th episode of Kaisercade.  What is Kaisercade? Well, it is a show about games just like that of something that you used to see on G4 but with a much cheaper budget. What can you expect from it? You can expect reviews, cheats, video game media, and more!

What’s in this episode other than cheap host segments? There’s a review for Endorlight for the PC, some cheat segments, and lastly a Video Game Media segment on a Virtua Fighter VHS released by Shonen Jump/V-Jump… No! They weren’t cut from future episodes because they were crudmeat! Watch the show to find out why, in this exciting(?) episode of Kaisercade: The Last Reviewer of EARTH!… Oh yeah!  This show also takes place in the deep future.

The More You Know: Cassette Vision

So only one channel on Earth (and presumably other planets too) is allowed to ask a question about games that starts with “Did you know…..?” Where is that rule written down? To heck with that and so I’m bringing out a new episode of The More You Know Gaming! This time lets take a look at the Cassette Vision as well as the CV Junior and Super CV. All made by Epoch, who should get a lot more credit than it does. Epoch is kind of like the Oswald the Lucky Rabbit of gaming. They had so many firsts in the industry. Including the first LCD and LED games in Japan and the first cart based systems. The also invented card readers and motion control games, all before Nintendo, who ends up getting all the fame. Doesn’t it just burn you? Well as you’ll see in the video, the Cassette Vision held its own against the Big N for a while, but eventually gave up and moved on to greener pastures, but left behind one legacy that still to this day, hasn’t been forgotten. What is it? Check the video to find out!
