The History of Mario Brothers arcade documentary
« on: September 22, 2018, 11:10:11 am »
Hello all, I just discovered this forum and wanted to share my arcade documentary series. I hope this is the right forum.

I've been a videogame player since 1978 but lost my hands and feet to pneumonia three years ago. I figured out a way to keep playing and also started this documentary series just a couple of months ago. I hope you enjoy them. Also, up on my channel is the history of Chase HQ, paperboy, jungle hunt and more.

Pretty cool man. 

So have you tried the xbox's new accessibility controller?  Just wondering if it's actually useful or not.

Thanks for the comments, I have not tried the new controller from Microsoft. Perhaps they will see my video and send me a free review copy.  :-)

That'd be nice.  From what a read you could theoretically make any kind of sensor to work as buttons/sticks so it'd be easy to customize to your needs.

I do pretty well with just a standard Xbox 360 controller. The only types of games I struggle with our first person shooters. As this means I can't play grand theft auto or red dead redemption. Perhaps this would rectify that.
