    Computer Chronicles have found their way into my recommendations recently. No complaints, there's a lot of fun watching there.

    Saving a bunch of videos in this thread to my 'watch later' playlist so I can bung them on the telly later.

    I’m a subscriber. The entire channel is worthwhile. Checks a lot of boxes for me as a creative. High production value too. Love it. Interviews with guys like Akiman (SF2 artist) are really informative and give you a glimpse of a sometimes melancholic life of an artist.

    Atari ST buffs, new video from The Joy of Sticks


    Disclaimer: Probably not that interesting for anyone not an ST fan

    I thought there was an ST thread somewhere here but couldn't find it in search for the life of me..

    I don't mind joy of sticks, guy is worse at games than me which is refreshing for a youtuber most of them have godlike skills :)

    So we have a new conversion of a KOF game for the DC - what next?

    Loads of Atomiswave games getting ported to DC. Excellent news for arcade fans who can't afford the eye watering price of that kit, or don't have the space for it.

    Sick, so many memories, mainly with the original Daytona arcade head-to-head though. That red skeleton leaping down on top of the track reminds me more recently of the dinosaurs in Forza Horizon 3 - Hot Wheels DLC.

    It's bananas how much amazing IP SEGA is sitting on that they really need to either port or release a proper sequel.

    Shinobi, Skies of Arcadia, Golden Axe, a million racing games. List goes on and on.

    I really hope they pull it together in 2021.

    I wish every company would do one of these. Nintendo are notoriously cagey about their past, and it sucks.

    My favourite bit of that video was a momentary mention of the Sega SC-3000. A system and a time in my life that had a lot of personal importance for me.

    My favorite bit is when he talks about why there was no project with the code name "uranus" and goes over a few theories. As a westerner i'm pretty sure i could tell him why :)

    Not retro computing related but this popped up on my feed the other night at random. Can't help but admire the spectacular end result of the restoration!

    It's also interesting to see what techniques other retro hobbyist's apply in their restorations.
