VideoGamer's very own Russian liaison, Max Saprykin, explains why he's never known the loving touch of a Nintendo 64 and why piracy is such a big part of Russian gaming.

Have any questions for our man from Moscow? Ask away in the comments section of this video.

Great video and I loved to see more on the DIY localisations for games given how bad the early Japanese -> English jobs were I can only imagine how fun the 'pirate edition' translations are.

Also that outro just kills it, 'Everything will be fine'!

Dear Video-so-called-Gamer,

I don't care for these videos, not one jot. Please return to disseminating press releases as soon as possible. I want to know if there's a new trailer for a Ubisoft game today, or if I can buy extra content for the £55 game I bought on release day.
