I believe it's some sort of racing game.

 

Although I did rediscover an old thread on Retro Gamer's forum where a guy was arguing passionately that it's not a racing game.  But then given his favourite racing game was "Total Drivin'" I'm not sure we should listen to him.

 

If you don't remember Total Drivin, it was the driving game equivalent of beige paint even in 1998 or so.

Eek 2006 is now over 12 years ago, seems like a lifetime ago now and in 2006 Team 17 did the PSP remake of Lemmings. Which we cover in a short look on the channel, a quality remake that includes a level editor and 36 all new levels, on top of all the original Amiga levels.

The 2nd bit of a marathon.

 

Leading up to the Euro launch of the Mega Drive Mini I play all 42 games over 4 bitesize parts in order to answer one question only "Which should you be playing when you get it?"

 

 

Yesterzine doesn't care if a game was good then, it cares if it's good now and there's some that have very much traveled in the wrong direction.

 

Part 2 covers Dynamite Headdy to Light Crusader.

Another gem of a PSP game that is only 10 years old, the third game in the LocoRoco series was a download only title that released with the PSP Go (In Japan). The fact download titles weren't standard for at this point meant it disappeared off the map for most people. Certainly worth it if you like it, you can get it for £4.99 in a bundle still on the store.

Going for a obscure Saturn port today with a playthrough of Whizz (first full recording I can find on Youtube) it's got some nice ideas, but it is very average. A few changes here and there would have greatly improved it as the platforming itself is solid. It's just the timer is unforgiving and takes out a lot of the fun. One game that looks great on the OSSC.

It's Friday so you know what time it is! (for the last 2 Fridays and next Friday anyway)

 

It's part 3 of the attempt to look at every game on the forthcoming Mega Drive Mini.

 

This video covers from Mega Man : The Wily Wars up until Space Harrier 2.

Having played the rather poor emulated Street Fighter 30th Anniversary last week, I decided to take a look at what I think is the best port of the original Street Fighter II The World Warrior which is on Sega Saturn. Puts the 30th version to shame, no sound lag, added slowdown and other unneeded changes.

Nice never actually seen the SSF2T port on the Amiga in action, but heard about how bad it was, the original port was one we all love to hate, I played it to death in 1992 and to my young eyes at the time it felt like the arcade at home. These days I know what a mess is it with exclusive moves, A.I. only moves and the frame rate terrible port and one Capcom later came to regret due to their lack of involvement. In Christmas 1992 I suspect many people had a copy of the Amiga version under the xmas tree.

 

Short video now with a look Pinball Kingdom: Fantastic Pinball on Sega Saturn, not the biggest game ever made, but fun while it lasts.

OK so a look and mini review I suppose of the unreleased Propeller Arena: Aviation Battle Championship on Sega Dreamcast, which was leaked onto the net some years ago. Not AM2, best game, arcade fans will enjoy it, but there were better games in the genre released on the system.

So on some great channel news we have now reached 2000 subscribers, didn't know if we would get this far, but over the moon:

 

Our first video since this milestone is a look at the North American only Dreamcast release of the Atari Anniversary release, it did get a PAL PS and PC release. Decent collection with some iconic games, Asteroids, Tempest, Warlords, Missile Command and Pong.

Went with a Sega Saturn classic this week as we hit the 2000 subscribers mark, Panzer Dragoon the original on Sega Saturn, here are full longplay using an OSSC an upscaled to 4K for the best YouTube video playback, still looks stunning even now 20+ years later.

 

 

Secondly, not true retro instead it's a new game on a retro system in this case The Mega Drive, this is the 2020 game Phantom Gear, early WIP version, but it's a demo and you can download it yourself if you want a look:

Now that ScummVM supports the classic 1997 point and click adventure Blade Runner, I dusted off my unused second hand copy and gave the thing a whirl, along with some discussion having never played it before last weekend:

I want to invest in some equipment for recording and streaming footage from consoles both new and old.
Can someone give me a good run down of what I should be investing in?
Setting up for newer systems is a no issue as stuff like the Elgato HD60 tends to cover all of them.
I want a set up that will allow me to capture footage from SNES, PS2, N64, GameCube etc to a not-shit standard without spending a fortune doing so.

Does this mean it would work on retropie?

Yes, I'm late to the party with my Blackpool Play Expo video...

 

1) A look at the nearly-completed Mao Mao Castle, a new 'old' game from Asobi.tech.
2) Like everyone else on YouTube, there's a bit of Gaming Muso's live set in this video.

3) A go on the ZX Spectrum Next, playing Baggers In Space, with the game's co-creator and former Ocean coder Jim Bagley.

4) A lot of Q&As I had with various online retrogaming people.

5) A look through that 'indoor market' of retrogaming.

If retropie support and run the latest version of ScummVM then yes, but don't use a retropie myself.

Capturing from old consoles isn't cheap as if you want the best quality you need RGB cables and something like a Open Source Scan Convertor or Framemiester. There are cheaper scalers on the market, but you will lose video quality. That said our old RGB scaler was around £30 and allowed you to capture decent footage, even if it did add a interpolation effect to everything. An umodded N64 will require a S-Video upscaler, the original Elgato Game Capture HD did retro consoles, but that has since been discounted and you had to buy an extra adapter as well.

With Halloween tomorrow, I felt it only fair to cover at least something spooky and went with the classic LucasArts comedy take on the horror genre with Zombies Ate My Neighbors or just Zombies as it was known here in the UK. First ten stages including the Day of the Tentacle bonus stage. Now if we could just get a modern re-release of it.

Only discovered this game fairly recently, I really liked it.
