The official Retro Core / Battle of the Ports thread


#181

Possibly the very first arcade game to ever have a celebrity endorsement. this is Teddy Boy Blues.


#182

Chinese Knock Offs - RS-07 Retro Arcade - Full unboxing and truthful review - 4K


#183

What happens when Sega obtains a license but have no game? Dynamite Deka is what.


#184

Live stream from 8pm to 9pm went out earlier on. Why not pop on by to catch the recorded text chat and video?


#185

A classic with a surprising amount of good ports. This week we look at Pang! on Battle of the Ports.
Note that the SFC / SNES version is Super Pang!, Not regular Pang! so it’s not featured on this video.


#186

Ah, didn’t realize that Super Pang isn’t the same game. What is the difference?


#187

Just different areas mostly.


#188

I like when you cover a game like this with lots of levels. You can immediately see how much you enjoyed each port by how far into the game you get in the clips from each one. :slight_smile:


#189

I’d play each one longer if I didn’t have to go to work :slight_smile:


#190

The Saturn trial and beta VS the final


#191

Cool!


#192

Is this what SNK should have released instead of the Neo Geo mini?


#193

This week on Battle of the Ports is one of the very few wrestling games I actually like - Muscle Bomber from Capcom!


#194

I never even heard of the FM Towns before. It looks really capable from this footage.


#195

The FM Towns is by Fujitsu and a very power system. Far more powerful than the SFC, MD or any Western computer of the time. It’s not as powerful as the sharp X68000 though. I like to think of it as a baby X68000. I actually picked up a FM Towns last week.


#196

Sega were always a company for coming up with crazy ideas. Baku Baku Animal is just one of them. This week on Battle Of The Ports.


#197

This time we are taking a look at the second Pow Kiddy product known as the Q3. This is a Famicom / NES in the shape of a Game Boy but wait, this is better than the typical cheap clones out there.

Would you believe it. Sony go and publicise the all new PlayStation Mini Classics but forgot all about their PS4 console. … Oh, Wait… It’s not official, as if you couldn’t tell (^_^)

Another Atari classic on this Weeks’s Battle of the Ports.

I put up a new Life in Japan video the other day. This one features some lovely areas such as Kokura Castle plus a visit to a gamers’ bar and Taito Station.

Something that’s actually really nice for once.

Over the many years of making Retro Core there is one game title that is requested time and time again. that game is Tetris. Tetris would be a very trick show to produce due to the many clones and versions but one day I will get around to it. For now though please enjoy the excellent Tetris Plus.

Athena, one of the most talked about female Gods. Surly a game based upon her must be good. Right?

I’ve just reviewed an 8BitDo Arcade Joystick that’s compatible with the Switch. I had no idea 8BitDo even made a stick.

Pink elephants, women’s err… well let’s just say in japan culture is very different. Pr.Li.Ru.La on this week’s Battle of the Ports.
