I really hate the commodore … :/
July 26, 2011 at 3:57 pm
Hope the TMNT thing goes on. Especially with the games, playing with the toys in the old videos isn’t terribly interesting.
July 26, 2011 at 3:58 pm
this kind of game remember me one called Mech Warrior on the pc, the very first one. You needed a book as big as the bible to get the code to play it. It was like, go to page 567 and line E on the fifth row, and that took like 5 to 10 minutes to find. Damn…
I love all this focus on TMNT. Brings back so many memories. I posted this before, but I would love to see you guys get 4 people and play the “Teenage Mutant Ninja Turltes Arcade game. The NES version was cool, but the arcade version was great. The arcade version is available on “Teenage mutant ninja turtles: Battle Nexus” for the gamecube. It’s kind of a pain in the ass to unlock it, but totally worth it. 4 friends, a few beers, and some TMNT! What could be better!?
July 26, 2011 at 4:00 pm
“”= Quotation marks
Just thought you should know James. Love your work and appreciate it all!
July 26, 2011 at 4:01 pm
Commodore 64 was awesome. I had the one with the cassette tapes, I just had to write load and then press play. Then again I had to rewind, reset the timer to 000 and then fast forward to where the game would “start” (but those were copies)
July 26, 2011 at 4:02 pm
I love watching your videos! I don’t know if you just forgot, but you just needed to type “run” and press Return after loading the World Tour game.
July 26, 2011 at 4:04 pm
I hate DOS programs! I spent a whole hour just trying to get the thing started. I ended up quitting and destroying it. Good review though!
July 26, 2011 at 4:10 pm
Oh, God, the dilettantism! I’m afraid just some basic knowledge lacked to get the game run.
July 26, 2011 at 4:14 pm
Heh, Mike, you laugh hysterically at your own statements a bit too much.
July 26, 2011 at 4:20 pm
You forgot to type RUN after the “World Tour” game was finished loading.
You do have the power of the internet if you don’t know the commands to start those games.
July 26, 2011 at 4:23 pm
I have the exact same monitor that your using. Crazy! I used to play my N64 on it lol
July 26, 2011 at 4:27 pm
TomasK is right. Just type “run”
And do yourself a favor and pick up an epyx fast load cart.
Leave the cart plugged in and hit the commodore button and runstop at the same time. Games load much faster.
July 26, 2011 at 4:31 pm

I didn´t know that that paper was for commodor and I always wondered for what was that paper for when I was a little kid. Btw. I´m born in 1995 so I´m not familiar with commodor or any other things like that.
July 26, 2011 at 4:33 pm
The tape deck is just “Load”
It’ll ask you to press play on tape.
Hit play. Wait 5-10min. It’s SLOW.
Since it’s “Hero Turtles” it might be in PAL and not play right anyway.
July 26, 2011 at 4:37 pm
Love the nostalgia/video game kitsch. This stuff is cool, imo.
July 26, 2011 at 4:38 pm
JAMES! I saw in one earlier video that you own the whole Iron Maiden discography and are a huge fan. It would bee cool if you did a video where you went through the discography and commented on the CD’s!
July 26, 2011 at 4:52 pm
Nobody buying themselves peripheral for the C64 is ever doing themselves a ‘favor’, guy.
Do yourself a real ‘favor’ and throw that whole POS at somebody while you’re driving down the interstate.
It’s the only way to be sure.
July 26, 2011 at 5:06 pm
Ever play Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Manhattan Missions?
On DOS, I used to love it, and I still do! on Dos Box
July 26, 2011 at 5:10 pm
Do you have the C64 game based on the Masters of the Universe film?
Or that Death Wish III game where you can shoot people into red mush, and there are thugs going around beating grannies into red mush but sometimes the granny would overpower the thug and beat him into mush?
I also remember this game called Nosferatu the Vampyre. I could never get past the first level because the enemies are tiny killer spiders you can hardly make out because they’re the same colour as the background. The cover for it was scary and gave me nightmares.
July 26, 2011 at 5:20 pm
Cool video guys! Maybe not as polished as a Nerd video but still cool.
And C64 hardware was always unreliable as fuck, especially the cassette tapes.
July 26, 2011 at 5:49 pm
Nice. The oldest computer I have is a 286 with 1MB of RAM. I do have a CGA card for it (the thing is ~34cm long, made mostly out of discrete logic chips) and a VGA card, so I can even play the old games that need the CGA as well as newer games that need VGA.
Kepa, that paper is for any dot-matrix printer, dasibally it allows you to print on a roll of paper instead of separate sheets, the holes are engaged by gears in the printer to move the paper. It also can be with alternating color lines, so it is easier to read big tables or long lists.
July 26, 2011 at 5:50 pm
i have a DOS system made by IBM in 1981 that works just needs a new disk drive
July 26, 2011 at 5:57 pm
I never knew that the NES TMNT game was ported to another system. I played that game for much as a kid and never made it past the building tops. I can’t imagine trying to play through the whole game on the Commodore 64 lol
July 26, 2011 at 5:59 pm
TMNT Manhattan Missions is amazing game. I play it very often , it’s easy game but is very entertaining . In my opinion one of the best TMNT PC games. I don’t like these Commodore games , the controls is pure joke.
July 26, 2011 at 6:04 pm
You have to press space button on keyboard to jump in Gryzor (Contra on C64). Contra is one of the best games on NES but on C64 it just sucks ass.
July 26, 2011 at 6:19 pm
This machine was hard to work back on those days! now imagine this on those days!
July 26, 2011 at 6:25 pm
Hi James, as always, a good and fun video, the only 8 bit piece of shit i first touched in my life was an Amstrad CPC from my cousin, when i was like 4 years old, and i instantly fell in love with those black and red pixels of death and those awesome game covers, it was the shit, and a real piece of shit!
I never would of thought any ninja turtles games would of came out for the Commodore 64.
July 26, 2011 at 6:26 pm
Yeah, Turtles 4 on Super Nintendo is the best Ninja Turtles game…(NEON KNIGHTriderS: Yes we all love Black Sabbath). The Manhattan Project is a close second. The Fall of the Foot Clan on Gameboy was basic, but that doesn’t mean it wasn’t good.
The only other time I’ve seen a game on a cassette was when The Nerd reviewed Transformers. I don’t understand how you could play a game on tape…probably because it’s one of the worst ideas ever.
While were waiting for the Commodore to work, let’s over analyze old printer paper & DOS…pretty funny.
July 26, 2011 at 6:29 pm
Did you hit the ‘play’ button on the cassette loader then type in: load?
At least I think that’s how I used to load the games with. I used to have a whole big bag full of Commodore 64 cassette games. They did not have a label written on it so it was like a big surprise which game it turned out to be. Mind you the loading took up to sometimes 2 hours or so.
July 26, 2011 at 6:34 pm
I remember when there wasn’t much else besides the Commodore, the Atari 2600 and some other computers that just didn’t have as many videogames available for them. There actually were a lot of really good games that not only played well, but actually functioned properly… these ones you’re trying to play are not some of them…
Anyone else notice that he says “parentheses” but its really quotes?
July 26, 2011 at 6:46 pm
I actually have Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles World Tour, but it was for DOS not the Commodore 64 although I’m sure it’s the same thing. I remember seeing this in a store when I was a kid and wanting it because I thought it was a Ninja Turtles game, but it really isn’t. Basically you get a picture of the turtles at Stonehenge or something like that then you can color it in on the computer. Of course this was before color printers so you would just get a colorless image if you tried to print it out. But I do remember you could print out the picture with a calendar of the month if you really wanted to. Oh and I think if you clicked on the name of the location on the pictured you’d get some history of the place too. Damn, educational games.
July 26, 2011 at 6:47 pm
If anyone wonders, the reason they had games on cassette tapes was that tapes were dirt cheap. Even back then, you could get a brand new game for something like 2 or 3 bucks. It probably sucked but still. Also they were compatible with standard music cassettes, you could even copy a game cassette in a standard stereo deck! And a 90 minute music cassette could hold a shitload of games. You wrote down the position on the tape ticker and fast forwarded to the game you wanted. So yeah, tapes sucked cause of load times and read errors, but they were a dirt cheap way to get games.
July 26, 2011 at 6:52 pm
Man, you suck so much at using C64, it hurts me to watch. Hint: the reason the second game doesn’t work is because you didn’t run it after loading it. And the backspace is the INS/DEL key.
July 26, 2011 at 6:53 pm
I had the same game, but not on NES or C64. I had it on the Amega 500. Was actually a good game if you played Donatello.
James, I seriously recommend you looking at Amega stuff.
July 26, 2011 at 6:57 pm
You were supposed to type in “RUN” after the 2nd game, James. The syntax error was from when you were trying to type shit with the controller plugged in.
July 26, 2011 at 7:02 pm
Hey Mike, I had a colouring book that didn’t work as a kid. All the pages were brown to prevent photocopying piracy…:)
PS. James you look like evil James with that leather jacket, sort of the anti nerd…just need an evil gotee.
Love the site.
July 26, 2011 at 7:05 pm
epic, I’d love to see more of these, fun to hear you two talk about games!
July 26, 2011 at 7:14 pm
i had that TMNT game on a tandy1000. it had more then just 1 button and was actually superior then the NES one. My brother had a copy of it about 20 years ago. We had the same piece of brown paper with the codes on it. But i recall after having the game for about 3 months the manual was lost and we couldn’t play the game anymore. By then my brother had copied out by hand about 25 of the codes prior to loosing the actual manual. so when we wanted to play we hope it would ask for one of the 25 codes we had. lol
July 26, 2011 at 7:25 pm
All you need to do for the tape game is….
1) Make sure that the tape is totally rewound.
2) Place tape in deck.
3) In the console, just type LOAD.
4) The console should then tell you to press play on the tape deck.
5) Tape will be loaded, hit the C (commodore key) to load the program to the screen.
Need more info let me know. You can email me off my website. http://www.silverdire.com
July 26, 2011 at 7:56 pm
Might be a dumb question but did you hit play on the deck?
July 26, 2011 at 7:58 pm
Hey James, nice job doing the Turtles games. I particularly love this episode because the Tutles Ultra game was the first game I ever owned when I was a little kid. I also owned a Ghostbusters 2 game on the computer made by Activision. It was actually really awesome! I always wished that when you reviewed your 3 part Ghostbusters series you talked about it. Here is the link to which game it is in case you ever decide to do another review like this one for Ghostbusters:
If memory serves me right, this game was actually unlicensed.
July 26, 2011 at 8:21 pm
The end reminds me of when my friends and I made games for the TI-83 in 8th grade…. we didn’t really pay much attention in algebra. My friend made this one game called “alchemy” where you try and build windmills to make gold… only problem is if you play too long the calculator runs out of memory and then your calculator crashes because it runs out of RAM. son of a beach!
July 26, 2011 at 8:24 pm
Never knew these existed
July 26, 2011 at 8:59 pm
What is that red box on the shelf above the commodore monitor at 10:21? I’d like to know.
I’m astonished that the Commodore 64 could play games like that. Gotta love how rigid and unforgiving those old computers were.
Play more Commodore games!
July 26, 2011 at 9:08 pm
Man, the Commodore version of the Ultra game looked SO SLOW and sounded strange compared to the NES one.
July 26, 2011 at 9:34 pm
I had the Commodore 64 port of the NES game when I was a kid. There was a certain point in the game where it would just freeze (on one of the overhead map screens) and you couldn’t go any further. Because of this bug I was never able to finish the game.
I don’t remember the thing where having a joystick plugged in disabled some of the keys. I thought that I just left the joystick plugged in all the time. (Although some games used joystick port one while others used port two, so you would sometimes have to switch.)
July 26, 2011 at 10:00 pm
You should get a hold of the MS-DOS Port of the NES Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles game, its literally unbeatable. There is a jump you cant make.
July 26, 2011 at 10:42 pm
I usually like your videos, but this is wasting other people’s time! You shold AT LEAST know the right syntax and commands for the C64. You could EASILY look that up on the net. This seemed a little tired. Quality over quantity!
July 26, 2011 at 10:52 pm
A t-shirt does exist! And I love these vids, always informs me of stuff I never knew about before! Keep it up
July 26, 2011 at 10:55 pm
First off what a great video though two of those games didn’t work.
I am really happy to hear Freddy Krueger my favorite horror movie killer is going to be in Mortal Kombat.
After seeing a couple of videos showing the Commodore 64 that I am kinda glad I never got it.
Bottom line if you have a good console with 64 in the title then go out to buy yourself an Nintendo 64.
July 26, 2011 at 11:06 pm
James, about C64… you have to understand that command, you used ‘load “*”,8,1′ because it means that you load all content (that’s the “*”) and “,1″ means you want run the first file. If the executable is not the first it won’t work, so I would suggest to you to use only ‘load “*”,8′ and then do ‘list’ after that you find the executable program file in the list of content (something like ’50 “name_of_file” PRG’), you can actually load the file as in ‘load “name_of_file” ,8,1′ . If you know what you do, C64 is very reliable… I got mine when I was 3years old, now, 20years later it still works as a charm and all disc are readable.
July 26, 2011 at 11:27 pm
Oww… That is a double quote, not a parenthesis… Goofs like that make my head hurt.
July 27, 2011 at 12:03 am
It’s hard to imagine that such drastic measures needed to be taken to boot up a game on consoles and computers of years gone by. Today’s kids are spoiled rotten with their near 100% easy-as-pie game loading.
July 27, 2011 at 12:13 am
” are actually quotations, not parentheses, haha. Not to sound like an asshole. But a it’s very common mistake. Anyways, I love watching these Turtle Tuesdays!
July 27, 2011 at 12:16 am
Oh my god. I remember Color a Dinosaur! For some reason, I chose that over Battleship on the NES.
Load “*”,8,1 UGGHH. LMAO!!!
I wonder if Donatello is Rocksteady’s nightmare in the C64 version.
July 27, 2011 at 1:18 am
Usually, after you load the program in memory, you should type “run” at the command prompt.
But, as Solitary says, it’s better to just load the executable program.
July 27, 2011 at 1:38 am
I really enjoy this videos =), great job James and Mike ;D
July 27, 2011 at 1:42 am
I forgot that the original TMNT game was ported to C64. I think I only saw it played like twice in my whole life. I will tell you that it makes you appreciate the NES version lol especially that crappy C64 music.
The world tour game I have never heard of. I was laughing so hard at the part where you guys were singing. lol
Great video James!
July 27, 2011 at 2:09 am
I used to play all kinds of stuff on my dad’s C64. The all time best game I ever played on it was Zorro. Talk about insane puzzle solving. ,8,1 was almost a mantra back then. I definitely need to find one of those t-shirts.
July 27, 2011 at 2:38 am
There is a build in tool to calibrate the tape drive. I just don’t remember which F button starts it up … o_O
July 27, 2011 at 3:23 am
Nice! All this computer talk reminds me of Ski Free on Windows 98.
July 27, 2011 at 3:58 am
C64 had the best version of Ghostbusters.
July 27, 2011 at 3:59 am
I love the fact that you guys made this video…. in fact I love most of the video’s you post… but I think you could have done 5-15 minutes of research on the internet to figure out why you couldn’t get the games to work.
For example, I was trying to get Burn:Cycle to work on my Windows 7 desktop…. tried Dosbox, but couldn’t do it for the life of me… then I looked online and saw that the only way to get it to work was to run a virtual machine running windows 95 or 98…. for some reason I could not get that to work so I did the next best thing and installed Windows 98 in an old laptop from 2000 I had lying around.
Anyway, the point is I got it to work and it only took me 5 minutes of research , a little less than an hour to get the OS and necessary drivers installed and 10 minutes to search for the disc(It wasn’t in its case… had to search through a few stacks of cd’s).
Once again, I watched almost everything you’ve posted for the last 3 years, I check the site every day for new things and I even watched the OA’s videos(which I think you and Mike are hilarious in, Matt & Lee are ok…. but don’t get me started on “Susie”(whom I’m sure would be much funnier without that horrible, horrible fake accent that makes me want to kill))
So please, do a little research(or read some of the posts that tell you what you did wrong) and maybe next Turtle Tuesday we can see how hilariously awful the other games are and maybe we can see more C6 games in future AVGN’s….anyway, the alcohol is making me ramble…. keep up the good work!!
July 27, 2011 at 4:01 am
July 27, 2011 at 5:18 am
Do yourself a favour and get a Competition Pro Joystick, James
July 27, 2011 at 5:49 am
After you put in the LOAD command, sometimes it will just load the disk to memory. At the next READY prompt, just type RUN and press enter.
I grew up with a Commodore. Check out Project Firestart, that’s a pretty badass game. There’s also Jet Boot Jack, Fearless Fred, Time Tunnel, Grandma’s House, Forbidden Forest, Caverns of Khafka; and Potty Pigeon is a funny concept. So there are some decent C64 games, and also many that would make for good AVGN material.
July 27, 2011 at 7:12 am
If it says Syntax error, you entered the wrong command.
It’s been a while but I can remember that much
July 27, 2011 at 7:22 am
James/Mike, for the cassettes do this
“Press play on tape.”
Anything in quotation is what the C64 will ‘write’ back
July 27, 2011 at 7:33 am
If Load”*”,8,1 doesn’t work… then you can get the ‘list’ of the content by typing the following.
LOAD”$”,8 (Then press enter)
now type the word LIST
It will list a bunch of files on the disk. Try to find the title of the game in some form. It might be TMNTWT or TMNT_World.
Then use the title in your load statement, but with only ,8 … like this.
LOAD”TMNTWT”,8 (then press enter)
If it asks for more… type RUN
July 27, 2011 at 7:48 am
Man, if we are talking C64 games…. check out.
Bozo’s Night Out (I always thought this was Bozo the Clown trying to get home from work. But it’s really just some bozo guy trying to get home from a bar after drinking more each night)
Who Framed Roger Rabbit (it’s worse than NES)
Double Dragon (Worst one ever)
Most others I remember are ports from other systems or arcade (dig dug, donkey kong, jungle hunt….)
July 27, 2011 at 7:49 am
I had the World Tour one for DOS when I was a kid. It’s not even a game. You literally just wait for it to load pictures of the turtles in different locations around the world. Then you fill in the colors kind of like Mario Paint. Can’t believe I remember that shit now. Awesome. Thanks James, lol!
July 27, 2011 at 8:53 am
For the last two games, you would need to type “RUN” and press return for the game to start :).
July 27, 2011 at 9:15 am
Nice vid James and Mike. But wouldn’t it have been even better if you guys did 5 minutes of research first on how to get the games to work?
Now it just comes of as lazy.
July 27, 2011 at 9:48 am
Let Me help You James and Mike. Theres a channel called Cubex55 they have the alot, i mean alot of games uploaded you name it they got it. Just search Tmnt and you will see all the Ninja turtles game. Just little info. ^_^
it’s on youtube BTW!
I had have the European Version of the game (Here in Italy). It was the same NES game, but with lesser levels and without extra weapons (no shurikens). It was really really bad!
July 27, 2011 at 10:36 am
The heck was that for some kind of controller for the C64?
Living in Norway I have NEVER seen that piece of shit
We had a sturdy, hardplastic black/red joystick with 2 buttons that could take a beating like a mofo.
July 27, 2011 at 10:40 am
-”I do know that a coloring book would work.”
July 27, 2011 at 10:43 am
I saw you had the cassette running before executing the proper command so you propably just botched up the loading process.
Rewind the game
Type LOAD and press enter (or was it return in C64)
It will tell you to press Play so do so. After few seconds it will tell you what game it tries to load, and then continues for loooong time. Sometimes the game autostarts after loading, sometimes you have to write RUN to start the game.
July 27, 2011 at 11:35 am
Quotation marks and parentheses are not the same thing.
July 27, 2011 at 11:54 am
You should use this command instead. The commodore will store the last memory location used in memory when you use the command your using. Generally this may cause the subsequent games not to work after you enter the command the first time. Either that or shut it off and turn it back on then try the command again.
Dont forget the colon.
July 27, 2011 at 11:58 am
james, james, james,… “*”,8,1 is load first program on disk, but some games the boot program isn’t the first program. I don’t know what the code may be but it would have been something like (LOAD “turtles”,8) as for the tape drive command i’m not sure what it might be. but you could try directoring the tape (LOAD “$”) p.s. directoring a disk is (LOAD “$”,8
July 27, 2011 at 12:25 pm
Trying to get into C64? Come to SlayRadio.org and we may be able to help.
Maybe you should do more research on the Load commands (c64 wiki) and do a proper Nerd episode, but it can wait until after the movie.
July 27, 2011 at 12:43 pm
@evets90 – On Jame’s tape deck the play button is the 2nd button from the left. Looks like he has one of the newer models – The 1530 C2N. There was also a 1531 model which was black.
It’s kinda hard to see with the image blurring when I try to pause the video but I’m 100% sure that is the model.
Again if anyone has any other questions about the tape deck’s operation please feel free to email me. My email form is on my website:
July 27, 2011 at 2:09 pm
Again, the poor controls is due to that weird controller you had for the C64 and using one for another system later.
Here in Europe we had a great, sturdy controller with 2 buttons that’s probably still today known for almost surviving a nuclear explosion.
You could NOT buy that white piece of shit here.
Then again, in Europe ( more spesific : Norway ), if you tried selling crap like that, you would come nowhere.
We know what we buy and check what we buy.
Get the REAL controller and THEN do a review, ’cause the controls are great with the REAL controller you didn’t get because the US tries to save money all over
July 27, 2011 at 3:31 pm
hey when you put in the load code just saying ” arent parenthases ( these are the ” are quotation marks… just sayin
July 27, 2011 at 4:39 pm
he video was great. It was freaking hilarious. Loved the part when Mike was talking about how you should have say this code to play xbox games and stuff. Laughed my ass off! Someone better make this code a t-shirt!!
July 27, 2011 at 5:24 pm
Mike annoys the shit out of me for trying so hard. Had to mute my sound at 8:30.
July 27, 2011 at 5:37 pm
Fun little trick for the Ultra TMNT game, you can stick to the wall by jumping against a wall and holding down. So many ways to screw with it. Using this trick, you can very easily skip over Bebop and kill Rocksteady first. However, if he’s dead, he doesn’t kidnap April, who remains just standing in front of the door, wounding you if you touch her.
In the dam stage, you can only die by the insta-kill seaweed or the timer. The electric kelp can take you to zero health, but you don’t actually die until the start of the next stage.
Unfortunately, I could never get past the overworld stage after that. There were multiple places you can get inescapably stuck and one point where the game would freeze that I never figured out a way past.
The strange thing is you do get used to playing the game with one button after time. It requires the faintest of taps to attack instead of jump, but we gamers adapt and conquer. This game meant a lot to me as a kid, because while my friends all had Nintendos, I had a C64. It did wonders for my console envy and gave us some common ground to talk about.
July 27, 2011 at 5:42 pm
Probably a stupid question but, why do you say paraphrases when it looks like you typed a quotation mark?. Don’t wanna be an asshole but I’m just kinda curious. either way i agree there should totally be a t-shirt with that code on it. Also i don’t blame you for not reviewing ET. I’m stupid and actually downloaded an Atari emulator on my computer and got a few of the more famous Atari games for it, in rom form of course. Anyway long story short ET was the only rom that worked properly, and i died a little inside.
July 27, 2011 at 5:46 pm
I dunno…I like AVGN, but I can’t help that this episode is about poking cheap shots to what was for its time a great (and relatively cheap) computer system and also one of the milestones in gaming history,
No arrow keys? Those were rare on computer systems of the time. Should we mock the NES for not having 10 buttons and analogue controllers? etc
July 27, 2011 at 6:21 pm
You know whats funny James, When you had to type the code in to start the first game lol i remember the exact words for the code in the Dracula nerd video just goes to show how much i love the vids that i would say the exact digest out
July 27, 2011 at 6:25 pm
my nickname says it
To load a game from tape, all you gotta do is hold SHIFT and press RUN/STOP.
(yeah, rewind it before).
INST/DEL is BACKSPACE on C64.
The C64 is pretty time consuming getting used to (especially the cursor keys) but once you got the hang…bam! This thing kicks fucking ass! Dunno why your keyboard doesn’t work while joystick is attached, doesn’t happen on any of my C64, unless there is a stuck key on joystick.
Try Winter Games on the C64. It has all games, they’re done way better than the NES version and…
you can SKIP the intro!
btw Hot Dog is NOT Ski Jump.
@Johnny Lunder: I bet you mean that Competition Pro Joystick. I have three of them. Yeah, they’re built to last, forget everything else.

Hey, you said all the middle buttons don’t work for some reason, maybe those button are for if you don’t have a controller, like they are up, down, left, right and the button. That could also mean if the controller is plugged in, maybe you could type in the missing letters with that controller!

OMG! Bring back so many memories! This was my first ever “console” if you can call it that
July 27, 2011 at 7:44 pm
James! You should use a Commodore 64 emulator to play those other 2 games. Here’s one for Mac: http://www.infinite-loop.at/Power64/
It’s time you change your anti-emulator position anyway. ;d

WOW, Just WOW.
I was born in ’72. You come across as the little dumb shit that would hang around at my house and talk about Mario Bros being cool. Then I would Load up Test Drive or Ace of Aces on the C64 and blow your mind.
To quote you yourself (and Mike)
“Game doesn’t work” NO, You don’t seem to know the first thing about a computer.
I should make a video of me Googling Cinemassacre.com and when the site comes up, I’ll just put the arrow over it and hit the space bar and say,
“Stupid site doesn’t work. It’s days are over.”
Yeah that’s you. Unless you’re fucking with us, which is a distinct possibility.
Duhhhhhhhhh, I put the tape in ….Duhhhhhhhhhhhh
July 27, 2011 at 9:05 pm
I Hate to double post but they just called the computer the “Keyboard”

Can you please just review or speak about anything having to do with a game for a living. I’ll be yer biggest fan…I swear. I just like hearing you talk about games good and bad. You should become a full time game reviewer. LMAO….of course…that is my destiny for you…I think you;d be perfect..and there is no defacto game reviewer…but i think you look at it intelligently enough..and you could be the first. Retro and new.
A Video Game On A Cassette Tape? HA Imagine like your sister back in the 80′s made a Mix Tape out of it with My Little Pony and Rainbow Bright Music. Back than I’d be pissed lmao! Than again I was born in the 90′s.
July 27, 2011 at 9:55 pm
Holy crap, I forgot World Tour existed. I had that on Windows 95, and don’t worry you didn’t really miss anything. It really is just a coloring book with predictably lame puns (“Leaning tower of PIZZA, lol). No more, no less. But being only four or five years old at the time, it didn’t really need to be anything else.
July 27, 2011 at 10:42 pm
Hey Razzy, shut the heck up you retarded troll. No one cares about your preciously obsolete Commodore.
July 27, 2011 at 10:49 pm
You know what’s bullshit? That this vid won’t play on an iphone. Instead I have to buy this fucking app! Ok really tho I know apple can suck a cock for not allowing flash but sites need to get with it and add a lil extra support. I’m sure it’s a good vid
July 27, 2011 at 10:54 pm
Emulators are the way go man. I prefer the physical game but emulators are nicer; they don’t mess up, you don’t have to worry about not getting them started, and they record your gameplay for you.
I use my xbox 360 controller and my gamecube controller when i play them so i’m not hunched over a keyboard.
July 27, 2011 at 11:01 pm
@ Razzy, fuck you! get the fuck out of here troll. if you dont like their videos don’t leave stupid comments. and james did not call the computer a “keyboard”, he was actually referring to the keyboard, moron
July 27, 2011 at 11:44 pm
I had the Hyperstone Heist instead of the Turtles in Time one. It was shorter & they went cheap with it by making a level where you just fight the first three bosses again (just after you fought the third stage one, who’s an asshole by the way). The music was still great & you get a little extra ending where it shows Shredder fall to his “death” and the Hyperstone break. I’ve been using DOSBOX to play some of my older games & some abandonware, as they call it. I’d like to see James try out some DOS games and more Commodore 64 ones, since I guess it’s kind of unknown territory for him, and for me when it comes to the Commodore 64.
July 27, 2011 at 11:56 pm
Probably had an issue with the keyboard because of the Genesis controller.
I didn’t have those games, but that ol C64 brings back lots of great memories.
I think you should have brought in a guest that knows the C64 well.
Also the disks being old could have disks that went bad.
July 28, 2011 at 12:07 am
Might want to calm down there a little bit and stop taking the Internet so seriously.
July 28, 2011 at 12:22 am
Hearing mike just freak out about the Commodore 64 paper is freaking funny!.mike sounds realkly excited LOOLOLO!.
July 28, 2011 at 1:00 am
I think the games probably worked but you just didn’t know enough about the C64 to get them to work. But hey I’m not complaining about it, who could blame you, it’s hard to remember the commands for a almost 30 year old computer
July 28, 2011 at 1:05 am
Love all the turtle videos!!!
July 28, 2011 at 1:36 am
You’re 39 years old and you have nothing better to do then troll you’re so cool.
I’m pretty sure Razzy needs to chill out.
July 28, 2011 at 1:37 am
Guessing you couldnt get the last one to work, damn. Guess ya just have to play around with the machine, but nice video like to see more stuff like this!
July 28, 2011 at 2:04 am
is it just me when i picture james as dr. frankenstein and mike as fritz? if james said “eating shit is cool”, would mike make a hearty casserole out of it? good video btw; punctuation aside, it brought back many fond memories of commodore 64
July 28, 2011 at 3:11 am
Actually, the World Tour game *did* work. You got it to load: the screen says “Ready.” It just didn’t auto-run, like the other game.
All you had to do was type “RUN” and it would’ve worked.
“It’s old …”
July 28, 2011 at 3:18 am
Also, the cassette command is just
“,1″ is the cassette drive.
“,8″ is the disk drive.
To load games off the disk drive, you COULD technically just type
But for some reason, typing
makes it load faster. Or something. At least, that’s what I was told when I was a kid. I’m sure it’s not true.
So basically, barring that the cassette tape is ruined beyond repair, you could have gotten all three games to work.
