Re: Turbografx Mini/PC Engine Mini

I'm really interested in seeing how this particular machine does over here. Unlike most of the plug and play retro consoles so far, it doesn't have the same organic nostalgia base due to the fact that the original console wasn't widely available. But it does have a reputation amongst enthusiasts as...

Re: HdE's Totally Unoriginal Gaming Show

My latest review is up, and in it I take a look at Naxat Soft's 1988 pinball extravaganza ALIEN CRUSH. Which visually pays more than a little homage to the Alien movies. https://pbs.twimg.com/media/D8OtRQsXkAILJqk.jpg I still say they missed a trick by not doing a sequel and calling it 'James Camero...

I just hope they don't do what they always used to do on the Mega Games compilations, which was shoving World Cup Italia 90 (or Sega Soccer, later) in at every opportunity.
Hey - they had to get their mileage out of that one somehow!

Re: HdE's Totally Unoriginal Gaming Show

Had a real struggle getting the latest review together, but it's finally up on YouTube- and age restricted to boot, as the content for this one gets a bit heavy. This time, I look at Kaos Studios' HOMEFRONT - a first person shooter that's often remembered as being little better than mediocre. Howeve...

Re: HdE's Totally Unoriginal Gaming Show

I'm back with another video this week! Taking a look at another incarnation of R-Type this time - specifically the Sega Master System version. Check out the handsome devil in this thumbnail: https://pbs.twimg.com/media/D5feI5yXoAAseq0.jpg Here's a direct link to the review: https://youtu.be/qQPixUG1...

Re: HdE's Totally Unoriginal Gaming Show

Despite technology, work, and a billion other factors doing their damnedest to stop me, I've uploaded another video today. In this one, I take a look at the Atari 2600 version of JAWBREAKER, which differs quite a bit from the version of it that graced the Apple II and Atari 8 bit home computers (and...

Re: HdE's Totally Unoriginal Gaming Show

This week's video is live. And in it, I tackle my first review of a PC Engine game. It's Data East's OVERRIDE. And it's just a little bit different to your standard up-the-screen shooter. Want to know how? Well you'll have to watch the video! Only then can I bathe in sweet, sweet YouTube money and f...

New video is up! I tackle a big one this time, with a look at the Sega 32X version of Yu Suzuki's SPACE HARRIER. https://pbs.twimg.com/media/D2H5SiCXcAElKGl.jpg Direct link to video: https://youtu.be/9vVVjThl-qQ Super special thanks to Keiren Hawken for helping out on this one with some footage of t...

Re: HdE's Totally Unoriginal Gaming Show

Alright everyone? It's been an age since I last posted on here, thanks to my busy rockstar lifestyle (ahahaha!) but I'll poke my head back in just to let folks know that I've just started uploading the next batch of videos, in what I'm grandiosely calling Season Two of my YouTube gaming show. This s...

Re: Nintendo Switch Discussion

I do really like the game, but I find the CPU opposition very cheap in comparison to F-Zero or Wipeout. Even on the easiest difficulty, you practically have to complete three perfect laps boosting the entire time to come first, and if one of the CPU ships manages to give you a good rattle... forget...

Re: Nintendo Switch Discussion

Fast RMX - took me a while to get to grips with the speed must be my age :( - but it's a nice WipeOut clone. Stick with it! I picked it up not long after buying my Switch. I'd heard mixed reviews, which was off-putting, and it does truthfully take a while to get the hang of. But it really is good f...

Re: HdE's Totally Unoriginal Gaming Show

Heads up! I hope everyone has had a nice Xmas break (or survived it, at the very least!) I'm wrapping up 2018, and indeed, season one of my YouTube gaming show, with a look at Sega's Megadrive version of COLUMNS. And nobody is more surprised than me at the fact that I found enough stuff to talk abou...

Re: HdE's Totally Unoriginal Gaming Show

The latest video on the channel arrives a bit late thanks to technical difficulties (it was actually supposed to go up after another video - and both of them decided to act up during production. Oh joy!) BUT! Better late than never! And this one's a look back at SUPER R-TYPE on the Super Nintendo. h...

Re: HdE's Totally Unoriginal Gaming Show

YES! I love this game, it's so under rated and a big favourite of mine. It might be a Juno First clone but I played this one first, great memories. 😎 And THAT'S the kind of reaction I like to see my videos getting! I only discovered Beamrider fairly recently - last year, I think. But I've been itch...
