From Minecraft to Youtube with Cyber-Seniors, A Look Behind the Scenes

The documentary Cyber-Seniors is getting special sneak previews at film festivals around the world, and at the Victoria Film Festival, it screened February 11 and the 15th. And on May 2, it will be making its theatrical premiere.

For the young actress turned director, Saffron Cassaday, this film marks her debut.

When Saffron’s sister, Macaulee, and grandfather were diagnosed with cancer during production, that did not bring making this film to halt. Their journey is also chronicled. Having started two years ago, the teaching program called Cyber-Seniors was well underway. When medical issues only showed how effective online communication works for two very close family members, the ties that bind are expressed online too.

JTM Games Collection – 150+ And Counting! (Update)

Here at JTM Games, hardcore gaming isn’t just a term; it’s a lifestyle. With my recent acquisition of the hard-to-find titles in Calling and Madworld  for the Nintendo Wii, I am happy to announce that the collection is now made up of more that 150+ games from different systems, eras, genres in gaming.

As it stands, the systems currently owned are:

  • Sony Playstation
  • Sony PS3
  • Sony PSP
  • Microsoft Xbox 360
  • Customized PC Rig
  • Onlive Service
  • Nintendo Wii
  • Nintendo Game Boy
  • Nintendo Game Boy Advanced
  • Nintendo Game Boy Color
  • Sega Dreamcast

Consoles Owned in the Past

  • Sony Playstation 2
  • Microsoft Xbox
  • Nintendo Gamecube
  • Nintendo Entertainment System (NES)
  • Nintendo Famicom (Japanese NES)
  • Sega Mega Drive
  • Sega Game Gear
  • Gametap Service
  • Neo Geo Pocket Color
  • Various Game & Watch collections

Attached is a video tour of my game collection which can be found in the JTM Games official Youtube channel. I decided to not show my other games in the video because many of my old PS1/Dreamcast/PS2 games are missing their cases; as well, almost 20% of my game collection is through the Playstation Network, Xbox Live, Steam and other digital distribution sites.

*(Update) I made the video before I got my Nintendo Wii and its games. Will do Wii game video reviews on my youtube channel soon. Keep it locked!

In celebration, I have decided to produce a number of video reviews on the Youtube channel focusing on modern and classic games. I am looking to begin production on gaming-themed shows (comedy and whatnot) dedicated to hardcore gamers like yourselves. I hope you’ll look forward to, and enjoy the next few months of JTM Games. It’s an exciting time to be a hardcore gamer!
