Yeah it is steep for the physical versions, I stuck with the digital myself. Maybe I'll upgrade tiers down the line if possible, would be pretty crazy to get my name in the credits of an R-Type game!

Quick note to say how much I enjoyed the latest two videos - I'd never played either of the games (Homefront and Alien Crush - or even heard of the PC Engine!), but they were very enjoyable reviews, and made me want to.

I'm thinking about springing for a physical copy now - I had a bit of bonus pay come through on something yesterday afternoon, so I may have to nab it on PS4! Decisions decisions... pay out for juicy Kickstarter swag, or save money for survival in the inevitable wasteland setting of post Brexit Britain? Agh!

I did spot that one of the stretch goals was for a recreation of stage 3 from the original R-Type. Doesn't look like it'll happen, but how awesome would that be?

Cheers, Tordels! I'm happy to say the show's getting a LOT of positive reaction at the moment. I mean, that doesn't equate to views, necessarily, but people are enjoying what I'm doing and even sticking their hands in their pockets to finance production. So I must be doing something right.

Regarding the PC Engine, a few folks have mentioned to me after this last review that they didn't know it even existed. That's a real shame, as it was an absolutely awesome little console! It had a very interesting catalogue of games, too, including ports of some beloved arcade titles, and even a few notable Sega games.

If you fancy seeing a bit more of what it can do, be sure to check out my review of Override for it as well.

WOOHOO! I'm twenty videos old!

The latest review's gone out today in a bit of an experiment to see if I can snag more viewers by posting at the weekend. This time, I snag something cheap on the Nintendo Switch eShop and see if it's really as much of a bargain as it seemed. It's REFUNCT, a low-stress game about jumping and pushing buttons and things.

I checked out the channel and really liked the way it's presented. I also share the same sentiments on Homefront. It's great to see Atari and PC engine there too. Keep it up you got a new subscriber. (More Atari!)

Cheers! I'm always trying to refine these videos and make them the best they can be for you guys. My tribe may be small-ish, but you're worth it!

More Atari stuff is a dead cert. I'm BIG into the 2600, and I'm actually trying to swing something to bring Lynx games to the channel in the near future.

Heads up folks - got something a *bit* special planned for tonight's video.

This latest one represents a bit of a milestone. I sank more hours into it than I reasonably should have, because the nature of the hardware it's captured from, and a few other techie details, made it an extremely demanding video to edit.

The review was originally written WAY back, and intended to appear early on in the first run of reviews. But it turned out capturing a clean video signal from an N64 was near impossible. So I've had to get a bit creative witht he tools I have to hand.

Anyway, this review goes live tonight at 8:00PM as a YouTube Premiere. Read below the pic to see why that's a big deal:



So, why is it going up as a Premiere? Well, because it allows you the opportunity to watch it for the first time LIVE, with an interactive chat window! Yes... you can actually TALK TO ME! OR EACH OTHER! OR ANYONE ELSE WHO SHOWS UP! The wonders of modern technology, eh?

I'll be online at 7:50PM. If any of you fancy it, it'll be great to see you there. Standard rules apply: just basically be nice to each other and bring popcorn.

The video lasts approximately 10 minutes, and will be viewable as normal after the premiere.

ALART! ALART! A new vid-me-do has just gone live.

I've fired up the Gameboy capture kit for what I gather is a fairly rare look at the version of PANG that was released for it. There are plenty of videos on the North American release, which was retitled as 'Buster Bros' but this here is a jin-yoo-wine look at the game as it was packaged for Europe.

It's, uh... pretty much the same bar the title. But, you know how it is. Some people obssess over this stuff. ANYWAY. Here's a pretty picture:



And here's a link to the video:

Another fun one - I was a Pang arcade addict in the Student Union cafe, and came to it with excitement on portable as a dodgy GB Rom on my MP3 player emulator.  Without the two-player, I found it a bit dull, and without the physical GB controls very difficult to play at speed.

Wasn't aware of the history of the title - very interesting.

It's definitely not as smooth as other conversions of the game, whether you're emulating it or playing it on real hardware. I spent a bit of time with some other ports of this one as I was researching this video, and it's honestly kind of surprising that Hudson Soft couldn't quite nail down the fluidity of the controls. When you play another port, you almost IMMEDIATELY notice how much easier the handling is.

Glad you're enjoying the videos, Tordels!
