- During the course of this LP, between July 28 and August 5, NCS went to see his mom. During that travel, bad luck happened as he got there. He learned that his grandmother was in the hospital, then died on July 30 and thus decided to stay a bit longer. He arrived on August 5 and recorded episode 4 the same day. In this episode, he decided to openly tell his story. Most fans showed their respect and gave their sympathies to him.
- Because of the death of his grandmother, he couldn't record the long awaited Contra co-op with his mom. He later released videos of this trip on his BreakingNCS channel.
- Episode 5's title has a double meaning. First, it's French for "by plane" and, second, "Avion" is the Collossus fought in the episode. You can guess the rest since it's pretty straight forward!
- Episode 4 to 7 were badly encoded by NCS. He explains in episode 5's description that he encoded some Vlogs using a preset but forgot to change it back to the HD preset. Unfortunately, we assume that the source files were deleted since he didn't plan on re-uploading HD versions.
