Ah well, if you have a new Spectrum, is it worth doing an extended episode that covers the 8-bit 2000ad games? I really enjoyed listening to the history of them on the recent Thrillcast - would be great to see them in action (unless the YouTube version of the Thrillcast showed gameplay).

I'll probably not be doing anything quite like that, as those sorts of videos can be VERY time consuming. And, for the time being, I've got to think carefully about how I split my time between doing these video reviews and lettering comics. But if there's demand for 2000AD themed content, I can certainly scribble that in the ol' notebook!

As for this comment:

Btw: I bought and played SUBSURFACE CIRCULAR On the basis  of the review upthread. It was great... And what an ending!

You have NO IDEA what a shot in the arm this is to read! You're actually the first person to tell me they've bought anything off the basis of one of my reviews. And that's made all the sweeter by the fact that the Subsurface Circular review has been a source of major angst in the past. To date, it's one of my least popular, and earned a slew of early insta-dislikes from people who couldn't deal with the fact that I was suddenly uploading gaming content.

Glad to hear you enjoyed the game - it's certainly something different! And if you enjoyed that, there's an upcoming review scheduled for later in this block of videos that I think you might like...

New video is up!

In this one (which was an absolute PIG to edit together and kept getting pushed all over the place thanks to my busy rock star lifestyle of late) I look at Arc System Works' conversion fo Irem's VIGILANTE for the Sega Master System.

Last week was a pretty big week for my little video game show. Not going to say much as to why, because I'm a bit scared I'll jinx things. Suffice to say, after a LOT of hard work, things may finally be about to pay off.

For now though, I'll just share the latest video. Which is a review of BURGERTIME for the NES.



Here's a direct link to the review:

New review is up today. In this one, I look at the follow up to a game a reviewed way, way back. QUARANTINE CIRCULAR, by Mike Bithell, plays with the same format as his previous Subsurface Circular, daring to tweak a few very minor things in the process. It's an interesting beast.

New video thingy on the YouTube wotsit!

I managed to pull off a few insane technical tricks to bring some Commodore 64 content to the show. Behold... SUPER BREAD BOX!



This is a really fun version of a game you might have seen elsewhere, that ANYBODY can enjoy regardless of whether they own a C64 or not. Details are in a pinned post under the review itself on YouTube. Which you can find here: https://youtu.be/ZSda4KJcyBM


Just a quick note as well, for anyone around these parts who's been following and enjoying the videos up until now:

This video marks the midway point in the third season. I'll be taking a hiatus from the show for now as I need to work out a better strategy to keep it going.

I recently set up a Patreon page for the show in efforts to secure a little regular return for making it. Quite a bit of effort goes into making each video, and this step helps me to justify continuing to make new ones.

Sadly, YouTube as a platform seems determined to saw the legs off small ventures like mine, and I've seen evidence recently that my videos are being actively suppressed. So what I'll do for the remainder of this season is release new videos to my patrons as they're completed and stockpile them until I'm ready to put out one video a week for public view on YouTube. Then I'll be in a position to see if I'm satisfying their godawful algorithms or not. 

This stuff always feels like one long, ever evolving experiment. So let's see where it goes, I guess.

I have risen from my slumber!
(With a splitting headache. But that's by the by.)

Anyhoo, hope everyone's doing okay. Got something fresh to share here. My plan was to stockpile new videos so that I could maintain a regular release schedule next year, but seeing as the UK's in lockdown and I figure folks might appreciate having something to watch... NEW VIDEO! And this one's a genuine thing of wonder. It's a look at one man's attempt to de-make the ultra gnarly DEAD SPACE for, of all things, the ZX Spectrum!



You can watch the review via this link:
https://youtu.be/EhptNL5V_Vg

Some bonus info, which might be of interest:

This game is available as a legit free download from the developer. I'll leave you to do the Googling, but it's easy enough to find.

"But I don't have a ZX Spectrum!" you may cry, "They're ancient and knackered old computers, and nobody has them anymore, right?"

Well, even if you don't have one, you can still play this. I played the game for review purposes on my swanky ZX Spectrum Next, but the footage is captured from a Raspberry Pi running an emulator. There's no difference in performance at all. So, there you go... a possible solution for anyone looking for something fun to kill a few hours with in lockdown.

Enjoy!
