LGR – The Sims 4 Tiny Living Stuff Review

[jazzed-out jazz music] Finally, a stuff pack that’s precisely what I always wanted! The Sims 4 Tiny Living Stuff, where your sims are shrunk down to a fraction of the size due to a mishap involving a baseball and a broken window, and then — what? -It’s about tiny homes. -Aw man really? I guess that makes more sense, sigh. All right so yeah, the pack’s called Tiny Living Stuff, but instead of awesome shrunken adventures, it’s all about living

LGR – Wacky Wheels – DOS PC Game Review

[typing] “Super Mario Kart.” Not only is it the third-best selling Super Nintendo game of all time, but it’s almost entirely responsible for the kart racing video game genre. It was also a great showcase for the system’s Mode 7 graphics mode, which allowed for impressive 3D environments for a console at the time. Of course, if you were a PC gamer like me and wanted a similar kart racer, then screw you, man. That is, until 1994 with the

LGR – Reader Rabbit – DOS PC Game Review

[intro music] [typing] If you ask me, the most effective edutainment games are the ones that don’t simply entertain kids but feature a specific set of skills that can be developed by playing. Like the game we’re looking at here– eh, yeah… oh… If only I could play the game and learn to read, so I could let you know what this is called. But how do I know if I’m holding up the correct disk if I don’t already

LGR – Pizza Worm – DOS PC Game Review

[typing] You know, there’s just some foods that go together naturally, like they’re made for each other. Chips and dip. Bacon and eggs. Bread and butter. Pizza… and worms! Mmm, yes. Pizza Worm. This is a freeware game from 1994 developed by Sami Lehtinen from Finland and released under the name Zorlim Software.

[Oddly jazzy jazz music] [floppy drive noises] – Greetings and welcome to LGR Oddware. Where we’re taking a look at hardware and software, that is odd, forgotten, and obsolete. And this time it is the bafflingly named, Thermaltake X-Ray. Don’t know why it’s called that, as far as I know it has nothing to do with radiation. [Nervous chuckle] Let’s hope. But anyway, what it does is provide a cigarette lighter inside of a five and a quarter inch drive

Building a Better Windows 98 PC! The Megaluminum Monster

[jazzy jazz music] Greetings, and welcome to an LGR computer thing! Related to old computers, but this is not actually an old computer even though it has old components inside. This is what became known as the Lazy Green Giant, a Windows 98 Pentium III build that I put together last year: 2019. And this was based on an existing project PC that I’d used for LGR for, well, since the beginning really. I had always wanted to paint it,
