It appears that the script that pulls in feeds from YouTube about new vids has stopped working and missed a load of mine. So here we go -

Enjoy! :)

This one was just a bit of fun. Next month I'll be doing more in depth reviews of the games.

Thanks mate.


As discussed, YT changed their RSS feed URLs. Anyone knows how to get to them now?

Yeah, managed to find a way to source the feed (though currently the script that embeds them seems to output huge videos by default, or is it just me?).


Looking for ukmarkh's vids and 8-bit battles channels, anyone's got these?

If you mean the video size then on my mobile they are exactly the width of the message block and fits nicely.

Haven't checked on my mobile, but on my PC the video above takes up the full width of the message block and the relevant height too, which is ridiculous...

I was laughing all the way through when I watched this.

The amount of times the cart didn't start, the sheer anger and frustration, and the clearly hate of the direct to cart ports.
Fantastic!

Great video; I'm so glad that you put Panza kick Boxing on there. The animation on that game is wonderfully smooth for an 8 bit machine.

Cheers , great video. Not familiar with the GX4000. Not sure if they had much of an impact down here ( Australia )
Great way to spend a quite Sunday arvo ( with a cold beer in my hand of course )  :D

They didn't, but they show up every now & again. I picked up my second one (my first one died) at a Gametraders store.

Doesn't surprise me , I honestly hadn't heard of them till my return to the scene ( about 3 weeks ago  :)  ).I moved onto the 8086 ect. Lets be honest though the 464 was a rank outsider to start with ( in Australia ). Everyone had one of those C64 things  ;) . If it wasn't for the fact that my father was an Englishman I probably wouldn't have been aware of Amstrad's existence.

P.s - Our neighbor bought into the C64 and Betamax ! , while we were Amstrad and VHS. I suspect he was onto something  :D
