It's a Pixel THING - Retrogaming Youtube Channel
« on: August 20, 2014, 07:14:45 am »
Hi, guys! I'm from Portugal, and I love retrogaming!

I grew up with the evolution of the arcades and home computers, back in mid 80s (europe), and this passion of mine began with my beloved Sinclair ZX Spectrum 128k +2A.
I've recently started my own YouTube channel "It's a Pixel THING" where I do weekly videos about retrogaming and video gaming industry analysis!

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

Thank you very much!  ;)

I used to own alien 3 for the Mega Drive, not the SNES. Will take a look when I get home.

Back in the day I used to play a lot the Amiga version, similar to the Genesis/MegaDrive, but the time limit was just a bit annoying and stressful..  :(

Thanks for the infernal machine flashback--it was fun to revisit that old gem--and you're right, it was a great game for its time!

I'll have to blow the dust off my copy of the emperor's tomb game now..
its better to not post and be thought a fool, then to whip out your keyboard and remove all doubt...

Hi, Generic Eric! My "safe zone" is Commodore Amiga, ZX Spectrum and PC games. Back in the 80s, only the more profitable arcade titles reached Portugal.
I could give it a try in the next challenge!  ;)

Many of you will remember the name Raffaele Cecco. He programmed amazing titles for the greatest 8-bit machines of the 80s.
When he finally embraced the 16-bit era, he did this:

From the creative mind of Simon Phipps, the designer of Rick Dangerous, came, in 1992, WolfChild, a frenetic action platformer with super detailed graphics and pretty cool music from Martin Iveson, creator of the original Tomb Raider musical score:

that's a great topic! My wife and I play the lego games, she is OBSESSED with them. I mean they are fun but if I don't stop playing we would just play all night every night.

Your production quality is really good. Can you share what sort of equipment and software you use to bring it al together?

Thanks for sharing that! I really appreciate it! :)
As for the equipment, it's a simple Core i3 PC with 8GB of RAM and lots of disk space, and Adobe Premiere to put it all together! The camera for the intros and pick ups video I make is a Pananonic Lumix GF6 ;)
Thanks for your comments!

Bugbear Entertainment, best known for its Flatout car racing franchise, started its successful career in video game development in March 2000. Nowadays the finnish company is working on the "Next Car Game" that will be available soon.. I hope!
This week's review is to the very first title that came from Bugbear's studios: Rally Trophy!

Targa, aka Rendering Ranger: R2, is simply one of the greatest hidden gems on video gaming history and one of the best Super Nintendo titles I've ever played! It's a mix of side-scrolling runínígun action and shmup highly inspired by Turrican and R-Type:

This was my first contact with the fictional universe of Middle Earth created by J. R. R. Tolkien, back in 1989, and was designed by late Mike Singleton (1951-2012), who is considered the father of home computer gaming.

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!

Ten days after its worldwide release on Youtube, Kung Fury has already more than 13 million views.. and counting!
Practicaly at the same time was made available on Steam, iTunes and Google Play the video game adaptation, just like it would happen in late 80s and early 90s!
Let's have a taste of Kung Fury the movie and Kung Fury: Streets Rage the video game!

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.

Iíve just discovered the 1992 MegaDrive/Genesis port of Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade, the action game, and I was positively impressed by this upgrade from the 1989 original home computer versions that Iíve played so much back then!
So, are you ready for some platforming action?...

While cleaning and reorganizing things on my renewed room, I was hugely struck by nostalgia when I was going through my collection. So many memories flashed right away through my mind, and I just sat and played some of my personal favorite video games on the systems that I have plugged in and ready to play.
Enjoy!

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 Ė aka Castlevania Ė was, as well, released in Japan. So, unknowingly, The Sacred Armor of Antiriad gave birth to the metroidvania subgenre.
Let's take a look!

16 years ago I stumbled, by accident, upon 1NSANE and simply couldnít resist to its amazing cover! And the sentence ďNo Limits, No Rules, No RoadsĒ instantly grabbed me!
By then, I was a huge fan of multiplayer over network, so playing 1NSANE with friends was a really fun thing to do!

The ZX Spectrum 128K was born in Spain, by the end of '85, and was in stores for just 6 months (more or less) being replaced by the (Amstrad) Sinclair ZX Spectrum 128K +2.
30 years have passed so quickly, so let's celebrate one of the most important machines in my gaming life!

FlatOut was a title that I was really looking forward to grab back in 2004! Followed every step of the developing process and wasnít disappointed when it was finally released!
Crashing and mashing cars has never been so much fun!
Enjoy this 4K review!

Just chiming in for a tip.  If you want your more recent videos to have the preview, just go back and edit your previous posts to use a https url.  Secure connections don't embed on this site.

Just tried it in my last post and it still doesn't work :(
It keeps telling me: "Embedding disabled, limit reached"
But now, in a new page, it will work again for around 25 posts with videos embeded ;)

Here's a test:

The time has come to review Baja: Edge of Control.
This is a game that practically no one played and the ones that did, ended up hating it! Baja is the perfect definition of an "hidden gem"!

Great video. Love the arcade and CPC versions. Hate the amiga/ST versions with a passion. Based on inflation the Amiga version (that I had) would cost £61 today.  Crikey!

Thank you so much for your feedback! :) The arcade and the 8-bit home versions are my favs! :) The Amiga could have been way better! No doubt ;)

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!

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

Iíve 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, hereís a list, with no specific order, of 26 Amiga titles that Iíve found to be more enjoyable when played with an arcadish style of controller like the Maverick 1!

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!

Just wanted to say thank you for being a cool youtuber and posting respectfully in one thread. There are "other" youtubers here that like to post a new thread every time they upload a video, and it becomes quite annoying and shilly to the point where it turns potential viewers away. I've now subscribed to your channel just for ediquette alone! Turns out your channel is pretty sweet!

Yeah, its clear this is a labor of love for you and not a "Hey ya'll, look at me!!!" kind of vanity project, which a lot of YouTube videos in general seem to be.
