ζ + δ = ζ y? Wow! What a calculator!
It's so sad that this calculator and it's shite games are better than most mobile games designed to suck all of your cash down the drain for a bad game.
So what does it do actually the games look a bit boring ha ha ha ha
This is so depressing. Why is this garbage even made. There's a poor kid somewhere who got this as a birthday present and that thought won't let me sleep tonight
So, what's *really* your opinion of micro-transactions?
I thought Speedway looked pretty good
But can you write BOOBS on it?
Video ended followed by an ad for the Harry Potter phone game which I think is a hilarious juxtaposition
send it to The 8-Bit Guy and let him restore it!!! ^^
I've a pong console from these guys, the Videomaster Colourscore. I got it from my dad, who had gotten it as a Christmas present around the time it had been released. He said he gave it to me since then he knows it'll be taken good care of. My dad and I play on it occasionally, and it's a fun lil' console.
That doesn’t look like a vacuum display, it seems like the old bubble LED one. Oddly, you can find the 3-digit modules (calculators used 3-digit clustering) pop up on ebay nowadays, NOS.
who stays on an Ace and a 7?😕
5 AAs? When I was a boy, our videogames ran on gasoline and had 1x1 pixel screens
$1 Brickgame is better.
Pak-jack. Probably illegal gay porn, from Pakistan.
Shit....this makes Tiger games look good.
Seem to recall the same people doing a pong clone. Very cheap, quite cheerful.
1.2 million subscribers with videos like this!? Wow!!!
I remember growing up in the 90's and playing my dads old handheld soccer game that was just like that.
Oh boy you know you cheap when you get some IKEA batteries
lol I laughed at that
an escaped bear roaming freely on the street, is no laughing matter. it's quite deadly
I got the high score in calculator. 9999999999999999999
That Pontoon game seemed to play more like Baccarat, instead of Blackjack, because the jack(?) it got wasn't added to its final hand score (10's & face cards are worth 0 in Baccarat, however, the biggest score you can achieve is supposed to be only 9). Maybe it was a weird hybrid of the two games, hence the strange title of the game itself.
But will it run Doom?
This is the type of gadget that makes you wished you get the actual Mastermind board game, or a regular calculator instead for Christmas.
i am the operator with my pocket calculator*bweep bwoop BWOOOM*
by pressing down the special key, it plays a little melody*cue the terrifying noises this machine makes*
CALCULATOR: THE G A M E
I forgot you existed for a solid year
reminiscent of a Psion organiser 1 >_
Vacuum display? The redness would rather indicate a bubble-LED display, perhaps?
A potato would be more fun than this
(7:40) - Soft 18. Not 17.
Those look like Ikea batteries, but I could be wrong :P
"called blackjack these days"... yes, these recent days
*2 1 ?!?!?!*
That’s interesting, and i bet once gompai yoko saw an man playing with this calculator during a train trip,he came up with the idea of a game & watch series handheld, haha.
I feel like this was probably a prop used on Star Trek.
Which just exist to suck your money like a demonic ba[Headspace ad]sterd.
wtf youtube unsubbed me from you
Calculator is a game...for when you’ve completed a maths test 15 minutes before the end of the exam.
Another acton packed video.
Heh. I would've loved this back in school. Speedway was better than expected.
Brother has an old Gillette watch that uses a similar display
"Calculator's not a game." Maybe not the way _you_ play it.
Win ALL the money!! As long as there are no nines in it....
Say, I remember this guy. Didn't he fight Darth Vader or something?
Send it to Big Clive, he will fix the 9 button and while he's at it will probably replace the display with warm white LEDs.
Yay More Tat from Shatters Anus
Ad right before the end credits?Who are you, Larry Jr. Bundi?
I Like it.! Should be simple enough to fix. Reminds me of my Casio Watch Number-Invaders 1981
Hey! Vacuum screens are cool.
*tries to add 59 and 2* ” No we can't because the nine doesn't work. On the plus side...”Uh huh... I see what you did there.
It's basically the handlink all has in season 1 to 2 of quantum leap You should cosplay as al with it lolGet big Clive to gut it out and put in a 480nm blue laser in and keep the display working rewire calc mode to fire the blue laser to cheat at pool and snooker 🎱
You could pretend your Al from quantum leap with his handheld device
Stuart, why don't you use rechargeable batteries?
You can spell boobs with numbers, that’s a game lol
Can it run Doom?
Lol anyone who played the dreadfull hoverscooter level fom Battletoads knows that the dodging is easy in speedway.
Have to say, when the school started allowing us to have calculators in math class (would have been around 1977, when I was in 9th Grade), I would have loved this device. Sadly, I think much of the class decided their favorite pastime using them was probably typing in 58008 or 7734 :)
Those are old-fashioned LEDs. I had an (American) Football game that almost is similar to the racing game there.
Brain Drain is a great album.
Where did you get that because I want to get it
I'm uncomfortable with how hard it was for me not to try and ACTUALLY Dr. Ashen about what the gambler's fallacy is... I don't want to be that person...
For those wondering, the Gambler's Fallacy has to do with the fact random distribution is not bound to the probability curve... or is that the Gambler's Delusion? Are they different things? If they're different things I'm gonna look like such a butt.
like a DEMONIC BAS(ad plays)
The people of the past were desperate for every last crumb of entertainment they could get, weren't they?
This thing looks like the flight recorder from Alien 3.
we had a merlin.
Glad I missed that one...then and now!
Those missing segments are probably the ribbon cable or wire harness coming off the board and/or the display, fixable I think.
Not the GAME Enterprise, the space shooter, which is indeed rubbish.Don’t you love puns where the reader has to know about ancient games to get the joke?
I'm sure Spock had one of these!😉
That's rather impressive for the time, with Speedway being especially clever considering the limitations of the display. It would be really nice to get it working properly. I'm going to see if I can get one of these for my calculator and other tech collection.
Why would a LED display get broken? LCD always break, but LED?
cathode degrade? these old panels are PDP tech after all
Yeah...thanks QUANG... 😀
Did anyone else get an ad in the middle of Stuart savagely saying the word 'bastard'?
but can it run crysis
I suppose we'll have to replace the device before the 5 AA batteries.
Well today I at least learned not to take Ashens to Vegas with me.
"Hey videomaster whats 9 + 10?"*Videomaster:* "21""You stupid"
I try not to do that with my mobile games 😘
This is the Ashens I subscribed to 12 years ago! Love the tech content!
anybody else get a strategically placed ad that covered up the curse at the end?
Review of an Arduboy?
Stuart, if there's anyone that could fix that display and buttons to 100% functional again, it's Fran's Lab. You ought to head over to her channel and see if she wants to take a look.
Try n get hold of a 80s Psion organiser, they were ace
Send it to big clive!
Did everyone in the 80s know someone at school with the boxing game calculator?
You're welcome Stuart.
I want one!
Yeah but can it run DOOM?
"...more gameplay than a lot of mobile games, which just exist to suck all your cash like a demo... [INTERRUPTED BY ADD FOR MOBILE GAME] ...nic bastard"
Speedway is basically a prehistoric version of Subway Surfers :P
Well, that was crap.
Not great? It’s utter pants.
"ㅂㅂ8e888888" says the broken calculator portable game system. "Yeeeesss......." Says Mr. Ashen(s).
I want one.
