    This guy's whole channel is worth a sub.

    I quite unfairly wrote this guy off at first, but his channel is quite impressive. He's got a hell of a lot of knowledge. Worth a subscribe.

    i don't know why but i really like listening to MVG talk about copy protection - something I hate but hearing about the homebrew and hacking scene from at least his perspective as someone who's written emulators is interesting.

    BitHead1000 (Jesse) self proclaims that his channel is the "the greatest video game program in the history of human civilization":

    https://www.youtube.com/user/BitHead1000/videos

    This guy has genuine comic talent (a matter of opinion maybe), is a favourite of The Last Gamer (Joel Hopkins) and from memory has a complete TurboGrafx collection and is going for a full NES set.

    Speaking of TurboGrafx/PC Engine, KidShoryuken's (Jim) latest game hunting video is on the PC Engine:

    Retro Game Hunting in Akihabara (PC Engine Edition)



    I hadn't planned to get any more retro consoles but will likely pickup a PC Engine Duo R/RX next time I go to Japan. I was just there in May but only had so much bag space and was focusing on 3DO (got a FZ-10, arcade sticks, various controllers and a ton of games) and various Nintendo stuff.

    Video triggered me hard. Every time I hear about source code or file loss I get shitty. Rant, rant, rant.

    And I know it wasn't intended, but there was a bit of a "we didn't have cloud and GitHub back then so how could we?" overtone to some of the comments. (I know for a fact that Mr MVG knows better than that - it was just the choice of words that made it sound that way).

    Hi, all of my consoles are originals (modified for hdmi/rgb) and re-capped where needed. For me the original hardware is part of the experience/fun, sometimes I enjoy that side as much as playing the games themselves.

    Will check out the reviews on the PC Engine Mini though (cheers), hopefully it's good.

    Yeah I had to stop watching that - the camera kept wandering past things that I physically needed to investigate more closely. It was hurting me :lol:

    I do like that LGR, proper nerdy but actually personable and entertaining at the same time - it's a fine line to walk.

    Client from LGR is definitely one of the few fellas on my short list of people I would buy a beer for.

    Between Retro Recipes with that Team17 A4000 with all the WORMS stuff on it, and Clint's mysterious Sierra external hard disk - I'm hoping some cool historical stuff is going to get released in the near future...

    I've been following (well I should really say punishing myself) for the past month or so with the going's on the at the Computer Reset Facebook group. The piles of stuff that is coming out of their which you suspect are at bargain basement prices makes you green with envy. :sick::shock: It's one of the rare times I actually wished I lived in America!

    The sheer amount of stuff in there is mind boggling and they quite literally have EVERYTHING. If it was sold in the US in the last 30+ years, it's somewhere in that pile! No exaggeration. And keep in mind LGR went there sometime after this first came about and you can still see the amount of the stuff that is there! It quite literally is a Retro Goldmine.

    The follow on effect which we can all benefit from in a way is that a lot of this stuff that would of otherwise been sitting their collecting more dust is filtering it's way onto eBay and other sites. Naturally there is a going to be a bit of price gouging from opportunists but the shear volume and variety of components I've seen appear in some of my regular searches has been great. Hopefully with more and more stuff appearing online it will help to keep the prices reasonable.
