      Summoning Salt. Dude, your film making and story telling skills are on par with some of the best documentaries out there. I just finished watching your entire World Record Progression series over the last 4 days - Pure magic ! You're like the Ken Burns of the video game generation. Please don't stop, and oh, I'm now officially supporting you on Patreon.

    I just can't get into the newer versions of Mario Kart. They seem too gimmicky. 64 is still so solid to this day. I feel the same way about the last 2 Super Smash Bros games. SSB 64 was simple and to the point.

    These stories from the mid-90s are so sketchy. No proof, heard from person a, who heard it from person b, who heard it from person c and so on...the lore of classic games is awesome.

    I love that race track!! It is fun to play on in Mario Kart DS. It is even more fun if the computer in first place falls down to the part of the track below and they end up being last...
    Yes, the rails are missing in the Mario Kart DS version. Every last one of them, even with the boulders. That is why it is so funny watching everyone get hit by the boulders and tumble into the lake too XD
