OK, so I want to tell you something weird that happened in my life. And I think the statute of limitations is up. I used to work for a boring government agency. They weren't funded very well and they had lots of old junk laying around in closets and shelves. I remember one time I found a quaint digital camera that used 3½" floppys!

But one day I snoop around and I find the most random thing-- a Philips CDi. This was shortly after AVGN did his video, and I had just learned about these things. So yeah, I made off with it. It had been just sitting there collecting dust and they probably would have thrown it away anyways.

But I am still puzzled as to why the Feds would have such a thing in the first place. Any ideas?
Contraband? Maybe they took it off a drug dealer. Maybe you stole evidence.

I theorized that perhaps Philips conned the feds into buying CDis decades ago. Maybe they told them it could be used as a training tool or something. But I couldn't find any sort of accompanying software. It was just sitting there by itself.

I wouldn't put it pass them. Phillips were really desperate to make the CDi relevant back in the early 90's. They made a few pretentious infomercials that aired repeatedly on TV around that period.

wtf you babbling about? The game is a broken mess, or did you just play the campaigns?

I'm always amazed when I hear how much stuff cost back in the 80s/90s when minimum wage was 2-5 dollars.

They made a live action Tekken movie around the same time as the Chun-Li thing as well. Theres even a sequel.

Fake sequel. It was some spy thriller starring the guy who played the villain in the first movie and they just slapped the Tekken name on it. It's hilarious how weird it is.
