I gave this a like. Not because I like that you got a claim but because I wanted to show some support, that’s so rude!

Understood. Thanks!

A while back I covered the original Family Pocket handheld which was pretty good. Now we have the follow up. Can it continue with the quality found in the original?

So, there aren’t many boxing games in the arcade and what ones there are are not that great. But just how bad is Taito’s Final Blow?

I’ve watched enough of your videos now that I read your posts in your voice within my head, haha. Great content as usually, last I watched was the Family Pocket 2.

Really enjoyed that mate, my youngest just watched it and asked if we can go to Japan! He’s walking around saying “Japan” in the style of the Street Fighter 2 Japan stage voice :joy:

I better start saving for when Super Mario world opens!

It’s an oldie today as we take a look at Venture. This video does not contain any home-brew remake such as those found on the Atari 8bit home computers, Atrai 5200 or Windows.

This time we are going to take a look at the new improved version of the X6. The old model was pretty awful. Fingers crossed this new model truly has been improved.

I don’t think I’ve played the other ports of it but the Coleco port of Venture is fun. I have to say the coleco is kind of fun under appreciated system, IMHO.

I had a lot of fun with the ColecoVision port.

Today we are going to take a look at the X12 PSP looking console from China. Is it twice as powerful as the X6 we looked at last week?

#256

Yes, finally after 262 shows of Battle of the Ports I’m getting on to the classic Pole Position. This game has so many ports and quite a few emulated versions which we won’t cover but even without those there’s still 16 versions to see right here. Enjoy.
