Trans-America Ultra Quiz Playthrough!

Yesterday, Poe and I finally played Trans-America Ultra Quiz for the Japanese Famicom – the last time we played it was exactly one year before, and we did horribly. But this time I had some stuff that helped me cheat, so we set out to complete the game once and for all!

The stream was several hours long, but I’ve condensed it down into one smaller video here:

What an unexpected ending 😯 I look forward to playing the Super Famicom version on stream next year!

Thanks to everyone who stopped by the stream – you can see the full archive on Twitch here. I’ll have the full version up on YouTube later sometime too.

This highlight video was sort of an experiment – I often wonder if YouTube viewers wish we could condense everything down and how long the process would take. So if you have any thoughts, let me know!

    I can definitely see why some people might prefer a highlights video like that, but personally I prefer having the full stream available, and I doubt I’m the only one. So even if these highlight videos become a regular thing, please keep uploading the full streams as well!

      No worries, the full archives aren’t gonna go anywhere. Plus I like them up there for historical purposes, and the fact that if my computer dies the videos will still be available.

      Poe and I are just trying to come up with ways to generate more activity on the YouTubes, so this is a little experiment.

    I’d say if you want to compile certain moments and it’s not too much extra to also upload the full streams, that’s the best option. If you ask me, it’s either that, or just have the full streams. The whole thing (possibly along with a compilation) is better than only having parts.

      I agree – I don’t plan on ever ditching the full streams, I just want to test and see how well a condensed version might do outside the current viewership. When I see a YouTuber posting dozens of 20-minute things per day I pretty much have to accept that I’m never going to have time to watch everything, but whenever a single, shorter thing pops up I’m more likely to watch it all the way through and even comment/follow that person. So I wanted to see how long the condensing process would take me and see if it’s worth the effort.

      Hopefully that makes sense 😛
