Your retro youtube videos


Recommended Posts

I decided to have a go at something different, and made a list!

Cos that seems like a very “YouTube “ thing to do.

 

 

and a normal one too. The list of fighters I want to play is around 50 something, so I’m aiming for one a month now... maybe.

trying for chronological if I can.

Time to put up or shut up, after an entire series of putting 73% reviews on trial, what would I personally give 7/10 to?

 

Well here's one, The Incredible Crash Dummies on Master System.  I just hope I justify it well enough to avoid jail...

Decided to try a speed run, and super Mario world seems like a great place to start. I can definitely do better, there’s plenty of places for improvement. But just getting it done is good enough for now, the extra pressure of doing it all at once is real.

submitted it to speed run.com as well, hopefully it’s ok for them.

 

 

and here’s a few cock ups too

 

 

Got a few ideas for what do next too

Been a few weeks since I've posts as been rather busy, but latest retro videos include a look at Warp & Warp from Namco. It's the game Hudson borrow (ripped off) the concept for the Bomberman series from as the game has two areas of play and the second had a very familiar looking gameplay.

 

 

Next up got a longplay as Guy on the Sega Saturn version of Final Fight Revenge, which was a rather dated looking arcade game in 1999 when it released on ST-V. Still I really enjoy it and at it's core is a decent fighter, even if this is a bare bones arcade port not worth the price these day. Requires the 4MB also.

 

 

Finally not retro, but I suspect all the retro Bomberman fans here will get a kick out of this look at a few matches from the new Battle 64 Online game.

Got some special video today's, so who knew that Tokimeki Memorial ~Forever With You~ a Konami dating simulator actually included some rather nice bonus arcade shmup games. That turned out to be rather awesome, each version of the game has it's own mini-games to boot as well. Here's a look at the two included on the SEGA Saturn version:


The excellent shooter PSYTH which is the harder to unlock title, but a lot of fun to play:

 

The other title is Twinbee Time Attack which also appears in the PlayStation version it's a short boss ruch game with four bosses in total taken from the SNES and arcade game Detana!! TwinBee two are taken from each.

 

 

Finally if you are into your console wrestling games and are also fans of the Fire Pro Wrestling series, then checkout Blazing Tornado. It's a great little Saturn game that is still very cheap to pick up 2D old school wrestling at it's best:

i got a whole bunch again.

 

First up is GORF, which was a recommendation from one of my viewers. which was nice.

largely a space invaders/galaga/galaxian rip off. but quite nice.

 

continuing through Neo Geo fighters we get to World Heroes. With everybody's favorite russian (and everybodys favorite boney m song)

 

then the racing game Rally Bike... which i'm pretty sure is totally impossible.

Ah it’s me again.

got round to playing the second DigDug game, had no idea it was going to be totally different to the first.

 

And I decided to try and mix it up a bit and made another silly list video.

 

 

you won’t believe who’s at number 3 etc etc.

Had a fun weekend playing the worst of the three main Double Dragon games, Mega Drive port manages to make it even harder. Not a good game in the arcade, even the fixed up Japan arcade release can't say it, but it plays better. Here's the full playthrough on the Mega Drive, looks pretty decent, but the hit collision is just way off and don't work half the time.

 

 

Also 32X fans might want to see last week's video of some gameplay from the impressive, if shorten port of DOOM on the system.

 

 

Finally in some blog related content that all PS1 and PS2 owners might want to take a look at, had a look at the limited way of forcing PAL retail titles into 60Hz, some very interesting if flawed results: https://randomisedgaming.tumblr.com/post/632059947316805632/importplayer-light-for-ps1-how-to-fix-some-mod

Speaking of Bubble Bobble, excellent video by the way dumpster explaining how the mechanic work. I did a playthrough of Rainbow Island on the Mega Drive and did the same, pity you can't get to the hidden Island in normal mode as I found out later!

 

Epic longplay on the channel today with a full run on Super Mario Land on Game Boy, will in this case it was the Super Game Boy 2 on SNES. Still a classic and I did both runs, voice over as it's a Nintendo game.

I can't bring myself to sound interested or excited, and my microphone is shit.

These are brilliant, really cool to see some in-depth stuff about these old games. It’s basically the opposite of my stuffs!

 

and I guess while I’m here I’ll put my most recent vid in too.

With the PS3, PSP and PSVita stores on the road to being sunset, I've started picking up a number of digital only games. It really is a case of grab them before they are gone. Trust me when I say I don't think it will be much long before they are gone, already a number of titles have been pulled. One such game is the excellent PS3 port of Tekken 5 Dark Resurrection Online which was released in 2006, 14 years ago now. Man I'm really starting to feel old.

 

 

Another one is the excellent Minis version of Impossible Mission, which is based on the Wii and DS version. Never played the original C64 version, but I saw the changes done to this version. Overall really enjoyed it and finished it for the first time during this stream on my 3rd attempt.

 

 

Finally a look at the very good PSP remake of MediEvil, even if I can see why some fans didn't like some of the gameplay changes in this version. Always a bit fan of the series even if I haven't yet finished it need to set aside a weekend at some point to do so. The frame rate isn't the best mind in this version and I was using my original first printing version and my PSP3000. We also learned that the PSP doesn't output the game resolution correctly in TV mode.

I saw that Rod-Land is due to get an arcade archive release in the near future looking forward to that loved the Amiga version, just a shame it didn't include the 2nd and 3rd rounds.

 

Latest videos, included a updated look at Street Fighter Alpha 3 on the PSP, using the OSSC and Open Broadcast studio to get a full screen out of the picture as by default the component output on a PSP 3000 is tiny. We also figured out the default aspect it puts out to TV is in fact wrong and needs correcting.

 

One of our viewers did a nice video on the subject, so I'll link that here:

 

Also worth talking about is the excellent Super Stardust HD on PS3which is over 10 years old now, starting to scary me how quickly these games get old.

As we all know, it's Christmaster System and thus the beginning of the 12 days of Master System. I hope you were lucky enough to unwrap the world's greatest console this morning and if you did I can help.

 

Here then is part 1 of the 12 Master System games you should buy first.  Not always the best but a varied selection of 12 good, interesting games you can buy for a tenner or less each on ebay.

Hope no one minds me posting this here, but I'm doing a Twitch stream (my first ever!) to raise a little money for the British Red Cross. It's a 20 hour gaming challenge, though whether or not I make it that far remains to be seen.

 

I've mostly played modern stuff so far today (been going for nearly 90 mins so far), but there's lots of retro planned.

 

Anyway, my campaign page is here: https://tiltify.com/@david-claridge/lockdown-nerddown-operation-anti-loneliness

 

Please check me out and if you're able and willing, please donate. But you're also welcome to just watch.

 

If it's not cool me posting this, please let me know and I'll delete/edit the post. And if anyone knows if it's okay for me to make a thread in Discussion about this, please say as obviously I'd love the chance to raise as much as I can!

 

Thanks!
