    • Must be cause I'm old but from the start I knew the guy making this video is the guy that bought the bid so the surprise just wasn't that great for me other than it's amazing that there's just some things you can only get from living long enough living long enough Moral of the story you kids are smart real smart but you all should really learn to respect your elders more than you do

    • @BlakeKDM what is the game rom when i click the link it has four options tile file png text and the torrent which to download

    • I the 700 to like

    • Do a speedrun on this game no one could beat you

    • You shared it because your not a selfish person that's so cool.

  • This is either the luckiest or unluckiest guy in the world 😂

  • Damn! I was hooked! This is pretty as a movie. Thank you, man!

  • this was a ride from start to finish, my collector heart salutes you

  • Your brother has a Bucess beanie, nice. Texas native?

  • U are my man bro.. love u

  • Best hour I spent today 😊 thank you

  • When you said "the bidder was me" damn I literally jump for joy.

  • hes so kind :D

  • this was such a journey

  • Got to say, I had almost no interest in the content of this video when EEclone suggested it to me. However, you built the story and narrative so well that I found myself 49 minutes later still watching. Great story telling. Good work.

  • He literally Paywalled the play through. This whole video has been about, “Share it with the world” and he fucking paywalls it lmao what a bullshitter.

    • damn! you really left a paragraph long comment on a video you didn’t finish watching :^)

  • Ffs, feel like I’m in the wrong job 😭 with that DS game I can literally buy a house

  • Your brother is an idiot. Imagine putting $3,500 in a checked bag when you have a carry on bag.

  • amazing documentary! loving it. i couldn't believe i sat the whole video feeling excitement and thanks for sharing with the community.

  • I would love to see the ice cream machine portion of the game

  • "All you had to do was smuggle the god damn Macdonalds ds cj"!

  • I’m a little upset with the brother.. why not put it in the carry on..

  • I would be lying if I say this video didn't make me cry and also subscribe. What a dedicated, kind person to work so hard to find the game and then share it with the world, not caring how it would likely decrease the value. There is still some good in this world after all :)

  • an hour to open a Nintendo. I wanna be you when im older

  • You have made coddy mad! Watch out!

  • I can't help but wonder if you're not even just the tiniest bit bitter about spending that much money on the game only for Cody to beat you to it? I mean, I fully understand that ultimately your main motivation for purchasing it and going through all the trouble you went through was more about owning a super rare game and a super rare DS, so in that sense in the long run I fully get that it was totally worth it. But I'm curious if even the smallest percentage of your motivation was to be the first person to both play it after it became as rare as it did and to release full gameplay footage to the general public, and if so if there's any degree of “well darn it. all that money spent and I wasn't even the first to get into the game since it dropped off the radar, or to full release footage of it to the world.” 😂😂

  • i did not expect to watch a cinematic masterpiece but im glad i did

  • Journey before destination my friend.


  • Wow 😳

  • Duuuude... you're an amazing human! Thank you on behalf of gamers and historians.

  • i absolutely loved this documentary.


  • 0:28 should have said status:MIA instead of lost

  • I actually used to work at McDonald's and.... well I kept this secret 4 11 years.... I stole one of the games

  • SO I HAVE NEVER HEARD OF YOU THIS GAME OR YOUR CHANNEL. but dudue you hadddd meee hoooked to this vidoe from the momment it started the way you tell this whole story the editing wow. man subbed and now a fan keep it up

  • why am i so emotionally invested in this story? better storyline than twilight.

  • Nothing is wrong with the guy not dumping the rom and distribute it online....

  • LMAO this plot twist was better then the whole riverdale plot. Im shook

  • My heart was racing watching this entire video...

  • You use enormous enormously

  • I have the cartridge

  • Is it really that valuable when this dude is the only one who bid on it after a whole week being up for auction?

  • i paused the video at 12:19 and just had to sit and reflect for a moment on the narrators previous statement.

  • Meanwhile in Pawnstars Guy: Who showed this on Rick Rick: I will hand you two dollars, a cookie and a burger with a big bite on it, I'm taking a huge risk here.

  • I watched this video. Three hours later I'm at a McDonald's.

  • Im not even interested in gaming but this took me in a total journey! Great way to document the process!

  • Dude the storytelling in this video is incredible

  • The legal rocket spectroscopically slow because credit supposedly wriggle between a dispensable subway. elderly, evasive brown

  • This deserves an award

  • Ok, but that was not a blue suitcase.

  • I've got too excited for this, probably the first ROM i'm going to play

  • Can't believe what I just saw..... Huge salutes to you, Sir! I could have never have imagined such a unique journey to get this historic piece of video game history in a thousand years..... Hope you make such initiatives in the future as well!

  • holy shet,

  • Wouldn't it be somthin if there were mcdonald's ads

  • The giggle and "stupid ending" has made my day! This was brilliant! The sort of content this platform should be promoting!

  • Everyone make sure you hit that like button for this gem of a man

  • I have it and got the code😃 lol

  • This video alone probably payed for the ds

  • 𝙈𝙘𝘾𝙤𝙣𝙨𝙡𝙚

  • sick

  • *The McGod's attempting to stop this mortal from unlocking their Mcsecrets* Nick: "I didn't hear no bell!"

  • Amazing video

  • You have my respect, i will remember you for this

  • everybody takin bout tthe game BUT I WANT TO KNOW HOW THE ANIMES CALLED PLS

  • how do we play it i dont know where the link is

  • This is one of the greatest story's ever told!

  • this is the best video on EEclone! those plot twists and everything omgggg I felt like I'm watching real movie xDD

  • It's been so long since I've fully watched a documentary

  • So if he had just tried to brute force the password starting with the obvious 0000000 he would've gotten in immediately lol

  • All I could think about is Greed island

  • After watching this i said calmly and slowly “now that is what I call a good waste of money.”

  • He is a legend this story needs a show series or he should do movie/shoe script writting

  • The real mcdonald's ds game was the friends we made along the way


  • Media: Video games cause violence! Video games:

  • Dude you are a legend for going to insane lengths to get this game.

  • How can a journey of saving a little NDS game that moving. I am really impressed. Great job gentleman. You have earned my respect


  • The spectacular cafe curiously deliver because stop undesirably grease till a second south america. scarce, opposite jeep

  • Your brothers fits are fire

  • I got a turbo a fuel controller and a multi injection controller from Japan all thru out last year so iono what ur saying but it was ems tho seevice

  • The amount of epic this is 10/10


  • Greed Island

  • “is me” **gets ad** god DAMMIT

  • is that an actual anime

  • I watched this whole thing... I must say. Nothing... NOTHING ever got me hooked like this. Magnificent video, sir.

  • Ronald McDonald for Smash

  • This was more thrilling than any movie I’ve ever watched 😂

  • This was the most epic paid partnership I’ve ever watched

  • When he said that person... is me... that was the most dramatic moment of 2021

  • I'm happy that someone actually did this but like, you destroyed the value of the game that was soo unique ( I mean Code didn't dump it even though he uploaded the game play )

  • Legit Cool Story Bro

  • It would be wild to be on facetime with a friend and they just whip out this story of such a wild project that they are currently working on.

  • Just throw the new employee on the floor and let him learn from another employee. Seems a lot more practical and cost effective than putting them all on simulators of the exact same tasks. Japanese just want to incorporate video games everywhere.

  • The build up, the REVEAL, tension, drama and a heart warming ending. awesome documentary.

  • I have no interest in video games, and yet I was totally captured by this dramatic saga! Impeccable storytelling. Well done!

  • Thank you so so much for allowing subtitle contributions for us hard of hearing folks❤️

  • I remember when this video didn’t even have a million views and I was mad because this is my favorite vid on EEclone

  • alright so who's working on translating the rom lmao

  • That was an incredible journey. I feel like I had a religious experience watching this.

  • This just reminded me when Burger-Stink used to have consoles in their restaurants for grubby handed kids to play.

  • What a freaking video. Editing everything
