The camera was the Sony A7S Mark II. Joe didn't like how it handled skin tones and after many tests came up with settings that would be suitable for the on-camera scenes for this epsiode, but they were still lacking. The camera was returned for a refund and a Canon 5D Mark IV was acquired. This was used to shoot the 3 cartridge insert scenes in 4K. The Canon has much better color and shoots slightly higher resolution than the Sony.

*As a result of this episode being in 4K, the entire project including all assets ended up being just under 3 TB when it was finished. The file uploaded to Youtube was 29GB and took 2 days to process into 4K. It is unlikely 4K will be used as a delivery method again any time soon, but it's great for acquisition.

*The majority of this episode was made back in October of 2015. Joe felt that he couldn't get into the games enough to give them a fair review and would likely piss off the fanbase as a result, so the episode was put on hold despite all of the gameplay being recorded and scripts being written. Then Christmas came and Dave got super busy at his job and needed some time off from Game Sack. So Joe reworked his scripts, got rid of one game (Wrestlemania Arcade on the Saturn), replaced it with Giant Gram 2000 on the Dreamcast, recorded more Fire ProWrestling S on the Saturn, reworked his existing scripts and wrote a fresh script for Giant Gram 2000.

*Joe's voice really did break while recording the voiceover for Elevator Action Returns. Recording resumed the next day. The ending that exists in the episode was originally made to show Dave that Joe also suffers from time to time when doing his voiceovers and Dave isn't the only one who has a difficult time occasionally. Dave thought it was funny and suggested it be used as an ending skit. The original ending skit that was shot and edited was removed and replaced. Maybe it will show up somewhere else someday. 0:26:29 12/20/15 WATCH EPISODE

*Doom 128 was not the intended ending for the episode. We originally shot a completely different scene involving sealed games but it was pretty cheesy. Maybe it will appear in a different episode or as a bonus on a DVD set someday. Fortunately Doom 128 was appropriate and was able to replace the original ending.

*Shot in Plano, Texas on the evening of September 20, 2014 just after the Retropalooza convention had ended for the day and only hours after we gave our first panel ever! This might explain why we look so tired.

*Shot in the Film-Tech screening room. This room can run 8mm, 16mm, 35mm and 70mm film in mono, stereo, surround, magnetic audio, unmarried prints, Dolby Digital, DTS, and SDDS sound formats via changeovers or platter. Also supported is DCP content via a Christie digital cinema projector. The speakers are QSC 4-way with bass shading so it sounds incredible as well. Game Sack refuses to use any other auditorium or screening room.

*Joe messed up and forgot to switch the power on for the shotgun mic so we had to use the backup on-camera mic from the Canon 6D for the audio since there was no time to reshoot or ADR the dialog.

It also has s-video added as well as RCA audio jacks on the back so that it is not necessary to use the DIN jack which is inconveniently mounted on the side of the console. Also a Genesis model 2 has its sound circuitry redone with a "Mega Amp" as well as the addition of s-video and RCA jacks on the back.

*First appearance of Joe and Dave's friend Bill who is a wizard at repairing and modifying electronics.

*This episode was shot over 3 different nights at Bill's and we had to make sure we kept wearing the same shirts. The night of replacing the Turbo Duo's capacitors and adding s-video approached 10 hours alone.

*Dave has a job where he must wake up early and Bill is a night owl so Dave could not attend. So in the episode it was decided to just leave Dave sitting back in the Game Sack studio the entire time for comic effect. Dave and Bill do know each other, however.

Wii - The Monkey King: The Legend Begins
*Side-by-side clips of the originals and remakes for every entry in this episode.

*Dave accidentally said "Monkey King: The Journey Begins" on the voiceover instead of "The Legend Begins". It was noticed during editing and Dave lives a half an hour away so it was just decided to leave it in. Cutting it out was tried but it didn't sound like a complete sentence.

*The ending skit was shot in May of 2008, long before Game Sack was even a twinkle in our eyes. It's otherwise known as a stand-alone skit called "Advanced Technology and You" and originally was made to come across as an old educational advertisement. The stilted acting was actually quite intentional and certain parts had to be redone because they weren't stilted/wooden enough if you can believe that.

*Virtua Racing (Genesis), Blackthorne (SNES), Bug (Saturn) and Zaxxon (Arcade) make brief appearances.

*We really had no idea what this episode was supposed to be about. The initial idea was "Failed IPs" but we felt that too many people wouldn't know what the term "IP" referred to. Then it kind of evolved into a "Whatever happened to" episode. The final title of "Games that Time Forgot" wasn't decided upon until editing had begun. We hope it makes sense!

*We lost the sound recorded from the shotgun microphone for the ending skit so we had to fall back to the on-camera mic sound. It works but it could have sounded much nicer.

*The first Really Bad Games episode was kind of fun because the games were awful in a way that you could practically laugh at them. Not this episode. With the exception of Revolution X and maybe some aspects of South Park 64 and No Escape the games here are just bad, period. Both Aero and Blaster Master 2 made Joe physically ill to play and edit (he's in charge of recording all Genesis footage since his console has s-video).

17 Controllers for the 32-bit era and Beyond Saturn - Space Harrier, After Burner *Very little game footage. There is a short segment in the middle called "Intermission".

*The "Intermission" segment was re-edited with different audio in 2012 to avoid a potential copyright issue after voluntarily removing it from the internet two months prior.  The new intermission features the same footage, but is now set to ragtime music and looks like old film footage which is run too fast.  The original segment ran at normal speed in full color with a song called, apropriately, "Intermission" by The Offspring.  Both ways worked well, but I think I like the new version a bit better anyway.
