Undersubbed! Super Derek

Welcome to the second installment of “Undersubbed!”. Here, I talk about YouTube channels that I feel are awesome and definitely deserve more love. Only rule: no more than 1,000 followers during the time that this is published. Hopefully it reaches far over 1,000 after this is published! Today’s entry is on a channel I found out about recently while watching The Game Quest, another awesome YouTube channel. The channel is Super Derek.

In this channel, Super Derek takes reviews and gives a collector’s perspective on it. He covers pretty much every aspect you’d want to know in a way that keeps the nostalgia almost palpable. It really adds a nice twist to the reviews that makes you want to marathon through them. Most of his reviews so far are of Super Nintendo rpgs similar to Earthbound. Reason being, his love of the genre really took off after he fell in love with Earthbound growing up. He has many other reviews on systems including the NES, N64 and Playstation.

The intro to that video sums it up perfectly. Speaking of intros, his is a really catchy one! He really puts the time and effort into the quality of his videos as they look and sound great. YouTube really needs more users that put the time into making professionally produced episodes. The channel also has a sweet tutorial on fixing an NES that’s giving you some trouble and a few collaborations with other well-known YouTubers.

Though the reviews are the real gem for me, I’m excited to see what else gets made in the future! This is a channel to sub to for sure. Here I’ll help you.
