Added DiffLines:

* MarketBasedTitle: The Fact Hunt episode "5 Games Renamed for REALLY Stupid Reasons" covers this, from Creator/GeorgeLucas forcing ''VideoGame/StarFox64'' to be retitled as ''Lylat Wars'' in Europe (due to ''Star Wing'', which was the European title for the prequel, sounding like ''Franchise/StarWars''), to Creator/{{Activision}}'s UK branch renaming the first ''VideoGame/TonyHawksProSkater'' to ''Tony Hawk's Skateboarding'' (because the execs there thought the Brits would mistake it for an ice skating game).

* SelfDeprecation: Larry tends to make fun of the fact a lot of his Fact Hunt videos have clickbaity titles, sometimes [[HypocrisyNod after making fun of someone else employing the same technique]].

** There are also two episodes dedicated to cheat codes and pass codes that contain swearing. The first one, "Top 5 Offensive Cheat Codes", focuses on codes that are deliberately put in by game programmers. The second one, "Top 5 Offensive Passcodes (That all Exist Purely by Chance!)", focuses on codes that are generated due to the games' password systems (as opposed to battery backups and save files) that coincidentally form curse words.



* EveryoneHasStandards: At the end of ''Film/{{Apaches}}'' there's a list of names of real children who died playing on farms, but Larry stops there as he's not sick enough to joke about that.



* ShoutOut: Boggle Flash ([[Film/FlashGordon1980 Ahhhhh!]])

* EpicFail: "5 Hilarious Idiotic Gaming Screw Ups" lists examples from developers, such as a cheat code for ''VideoGame/KeioFlyingSquadron'' unlocking the full game in the demo, and the DRM for ''Rainbow Six Vegas 2'''s digital version being so hard to fix, [[GoneHorriblyRight that not even a clean install could do anything]], with Ubisoft only able to fix it by ''using a pirated crack of the game'' as an official patch.

Two NewMedia enthusiasts investigate the various computer-game controversies, video-game ventures and digital disasters that you didn't even realize were a thing, with series such as "Games Yanks Can't Wank", a series about games that were only released in the United Kingdom on their beloved home computers and "Fact Hunt", a series that, of course, details various obscure facts about video games, old and new, as we say: But, hello you! This is the page on Guru Larry and Wez, and we welcome you to it!
