Post by: PixelTHING on October 20, 2014, 17:33:29 PM
Hi, guys!
I've recently started my own YouTube channel "It's a Pixel THING" where I do weekly videos about retrogaming (Amiga, DOS, Spectrum, etc) and video gaming industry analysis!

Check it out, if you have the time: https://www.youtube.com/user/ThePixelTHING (http://https)

Thank you very much!

I don't think I ever played the Amiga version - well, I can't remember it if I did, anyway.

But I played a lot on the Spectrum version. I loved that game. Super polished.

Hummm.. I believe that there was no spectrum version of this game.. Are you shure?

I've checked world of Spectrum's database and they have no record of it either, so maybe Sokurah has made mistake or he remembers another top down racer?

The Playstation 2 has a huge library of games and there are titles that, until now, still didn't have an HD remastered version or re-released on more modern consoles or computers.
Let's take a look at my top 6 still exclusive PS2 games!

Nice vid!  Downhill looks like a chance to, at least visually, experience a ride that otherwise could be your last!  R-Type looks fantastic!  That would fit in my arcade perfectly!  I've passed by Primal at the local used stores a few times, but may consider it now that I've seen more of the game.  I've read that 1080i isn't as sharp as 720p and that many users prefer it over 1080i.  Interlacing, after one realizes what's going on with the screen halving and updates to 'appear' higher res, can actually be a deflection to nerdy detail hogs or hardcore videophiles.   :113:

Spanish publisher ERBE Software fought, in late 80s, a huge battle against piracy drastically reducing the prices of original games. At a certain point, in 1985, created their own branch for software development to separate it from the main publishing business. So, TOPO Soft was born.
Let's take a look at how this all happened!

Game Over is an amazing action run and gun platformer that was a target of a huge controversy around its cover art by Luis Royo.
Let's take a look at this amazing story that helped selling lots of copies and placed Game Over as one of the most famous Spanish video games ever made.

This game was released in October of 1986. Two months earlier, in August, Metroid was made available in Japan for the Famicom Disk System. In September, and also for the Famicom Disk System, Akumajou Dracula aka Castlevania was, as well, released in Japan. So, unknowingly, The Sacred Armor of Antiriad gave birth to the metroidvania subgenre.
Let's take a look!

I enjoyed the DC video a lot Pixel, it always interests me to see what games people like the most.  Giga Wing was an underrated shmup for sure, it's nice to see it get some recognition.  If you ever get in the mood to collect Saturn imports, it has a huge number of excellent shmups as well.  It has some that are very cheap and some that are crazy expensive much like the Dreamcast, but some of the best ones aren't necessarily the highest priced.  I have a decent list of them in the Under-Appreciated Saturn Games thread if you ever want to take a look.

Many of you will certainly remember the tapes, disks and, more recently, CDs that started to come bundled with our favorite video game magazines, but do you recall when it all began?

Back in the 80s and early 90s, the hardware and software evolution and inovation were always side-to-side with arcades, and, it was in those obscure and dark places, that I would decide which title I would buy next for my ZX Spectrum or Amiga.
Let's take a look at my all time favorites!

wonderful stuff, I absolutely love the PC Engine, an all time favorite of mine, the gas thing I didn't discover the machine until I had a friend bring one around one day? I thought what the hell is this thing? the size of it, it can't be good right?..how wrong was I?, when I'd seen Shinobi and Out Run on it, I couldn't believe this was doing near arcade perfect releases, far better than any other machine at the time? and played for hours on end with it, until he was leaving, then I wasn't so happy..lol. the same friend also introduced me to the Neo Geo back in 1990 when they'd only arrived in Japan, I don't know how he managed to get one or from where, but I remember the machine costing him about 600pound and two games costing 200 pound each..

I then discovered the PC engine again with amazing thanks to a full purchased license key for Magic Engine on the PC and played all these extra games I never heard off or played before, so again many thanks for this great video.

Props for another excellent video. Sounds like this game had quite an impact 8)
I've never played or heard of it but a classic deserves its due so thanks for the insight. Wasn't aware of the Linux remake and that's all I use now so looked it up. Free to play on Steam so definitely going to give it a download and spin.

Another great video! I loved Crusader No Remorse back then and played it until my fingers bled. Never played Crusader No Regret but will have to find it now. Also, never played Diablo but remember it being everywhere back in the day.
What a great idea for a video. Some real gems in there I'd forgotten about :D

FlatOut was a title that I was really looking forward to grab back in 2004! Followed every step of the developing process and wasn’t disappointed when it was finally released!
Crashing and mashing cars has never been so much fun!

Fantastic episode. I never owned or played an XBOX (any iteration, even to this day) but now I want one lol.
Some great looking exclusive titles there. Had no idea The Rock was the first person to own one. I remember the release for this was a month, almost to the day after the Gamecube in 2001. I was hooked on PS2 at the time and swore allegiance to the company/brand/machines and have to this day stuck by it but what a collection of insight into an amazing console.
Thanks for this video!! 8)

Your mancave is outstanding. Not counting all the stuff you threw out or sold, that's still one heck of a collection!

Yeah but my connection at work is by a different ISP (more reliable) and playing on PC there is possible whereas, not so much w/ my PS4 lol

That was a GREAT video. Made my day listening to all those details about the games and the companies behind them. Had no idea about the work conditions surrounding Metro. I have 2033 & Last Light but have never played them. Also have Alien Isolation, Dead Space 1/2 and The Suffering but they're still on the shelf waiting their turns. Don't even know if I can stomach playing Isolation. That atmosphere scares the sh*t outta me. Love it!

Silent Hill 2 was one of my favorites back in 2001. Dude's dead wife looked just like my live wife at the time and I remember when we played through we were both shocked at that. And Pyramid Head lol. That guy was... terrifying :p
But those nurses.. Dayum :D

I love those horror movies too. Actually had turned one off bc it was making me sick earlier then I saw your vid had been posted. Great stuff 8)

I don't think I ever played the Amiga version - well, I can't remember it if I did, anyway.

But I played a lot on the Spectrum version. I loved that game. Super polished.

I've checked world of Spectrum's database and they have no record of it either, so maybe Sokurah has made mistake or he remembers another top down racer?

Only 2 years too late (I never look in this thread) but I was referring to Myth and not Micro Machines. ;)

Interesting history. I bought the 1st game a week after it came out for the PS1 and still have it along with all my saves. Tomb Raider 2 is my all time favorite. The sharks were nicely done visually and in AI. Brought a whole new level of anxiety to gaming ;) A couple of games in there I hadn't heard of. Stopped playing around Angel of Darkness as that game looked like the rock bottom splat of a downward spiral. May have to check the rest of them out.

Some great finds. I was disappointed in SSX for PS3. Had high hopes when I ordered it but after playing for a couple days, tossed it in the pile and moved on. Just didn't have the great characteristics of the original 3 games on PS2.
May look around for Need For Speed Hot Pursuit bc of this video. Looked fun 8)

Yeah, and it's a shame. That was one of my favorite franchises but that abysmal iteration is really a tragic addition to what was once some epic gaming. Seemed like the dialogue was geared toward 10 year olds while the challenge in some of the upper levels could only be beaten by experts. But, I guess if I played long enough it could be second nature. Just couldn't tolerate it anymore lol.

Interesting about the tapes and piracy.

My first computer was the Commodore Vic-20 with a tape deck. Games were limited as it was often overshadowed by Commodore 64 and Atari 8 bit users.

The home computer video game based on Total Recall suffered quite a harsh development process and, recently, the rolling demo of the original scrapped ZX Spectrum version was retrieved and made playable for us to try.
Enjoy!

Very Nice!

Might be biased but Star Wars related video games and LucasArts games in general are always worth the time to play.

Thanks again for taking the time to make videos and share your experiences.

Very enjoyable video. As a gamer I sometimes forget to truly appreciate all the hard work that goes into the process to complete a game from drawing board to finished project.

10 years ago, the Colin McRae Rally franchise evolved into DiRT, alongside the advent of the 7th generation of consoles.
It’s the perfect time to recall that huge leap and, also, its origins!

I’ve been messing around with my QuickShot Maverick 1 and ended up discovering a new and far more enjoyable way of exploring certain games that I used to play with a traditional joystick back in my Amiga years.
So, here’s a list, with no specific order, of 26 Amiga titles that I’ve found to be more enjoyable when played with an arcadish style of controller like the Maverick 1!

I recently saw that joystick.  Apparently it can be modded to work with the Atari 7800.

By the end of 2000, one of the most satisfying off-road experiences passed completely under the radar of many fans of the genre.
Screamer 4x4 may be an untamed beast, but sure is an amazing ride!

For Halloween 2017, I take a look at Maldita Castilla, aka Cursed Castilla, this EXtended and limited PS4 physical release. Yeah, I know. It's a game for current gen systems, but it's a retro-looking game that must be played by everyone :)
It's not a review. It's a tribute to arcade times!
