Presented by "Guru Larry" (Larry Bundy Jr.) and co-written by Larry Bundy Jr and Wesley Lock (Wesley is also known as the second voice which occasionally appears on the show), the series was originally derived from their ScrewAttack Web TV series, Games Yanks Can't Wank, a show about games never released in America; both shows share a similar sense of presenting style and humour.
Each week, the series covers a different title from gaming history, informing viewers about its story and background in a comedic way. Games featured will regularly be those which, in the presenter's opinion, have been overlooked or undervalued since their original release, or quirky titles from gaming's past worthy of mention and reminding of, rather than the more obvious choices for retro features like on Pac-Man or Space Invaders. The segment runs for less than five minutes.
The show is also the world's first and only Retro Gaming TV series which has also gained a cult following online with fans all over the world.
The segment is also hosted on the pop culture review video site ThatGuyWithTheGlasses.com.
Notable episodes from the series include:
- Ep. 8 Mad Dog McCree - Arcade
- Ep. 13 Link: The Faces of Evil - Philips CD-i

- Ep. 19 Jet Set Radio - Dreamcast
