    Who the hell knows what the demographic for Sailing was, but the reaction throughout was hilarious.

    Presumably, this sailing interactive tutorial (I think that’s the most accurate description) would be cheaper and more convenient than enrolling in a sailing course or joining a club, but still, the idea that there would be a viable market for a product like this on a quasi-game system is ridiculous. Poorly conceived product, and less of a game than Plumbers Don’t Wear Ties (and that’s saying something).

    Nevertheless, hilarious video like usual. Cheers.

    This game is depressing.

    I couldn’t even get through this episode! I can only imagine how you had the will power to get through this … game?

    I remember that you briefly mentioned this one along with Flower of Robert Mapplethorpe in Nerd Zelda CD-I episode..

    There were books with the “Tell me why” that basically answers a lot of questions kids might have had back when.

    …not that I know of any kids that really used it, though I still have the volumes sitting on my shelf.

    It wasn’t nearly as interesting as that “game”, though.
