Retro Game Master just debuted in the US this summer on Kotaku, with weekly new  episodes and older fans might now the show as Game Center CX. I didn't even realize until recently, but Shinya is featured in the DS game "Retro Game Challenge". Shinya is also part of a comedy duo in Japan, where he got his real start in entertainment.

You can meet the Kacho ( like Section Chief) and be sure to refer to him like that when you meet him. Don't forget to say, "Kacho On!" his catchphrase before he tries to play a game.

I've really like the show since it's debut, it's fun to see someone struggle on old school video games that were a lot tuffer than today's games. Some didn't even have continues.

So catch him this Friday and you might end up on Japanese TV. I hope I can fight him at Taiko Drum Master!

I'll be covering the event, too.
