I constantly find myself watching these Retro Computer and Console discussion and restoration videos. Since we do not have a general retro forum
like that this is the place

Restoring a Spectrum

8 Bit Guy - I love this guy! Here is his Commodore History series which I find really interesting. One more video is going to come out that covers the Amiga but I really like this history


He also has a couple of games that he has developed that cover alot of the old 8 bit machines from the US.

Planet X2, Planet X3 and Attack of the PETSCII Robots

AVGN is more comedy that actual reviews though. I have watched a couple of his videos though and got a chuckle.

This unknown computer is just so freaking Interesting!


after reading the comments I have found it is an STD Bus type computer - the 80s Arduino used in colleges and industrial applications. No idea what application this was for but everything in it is hand made.

Not technically a retro computer but the story of the ill fated Coleco Chameleon from Lady Decade is good

For years, an ongoing battle is fought by a group of Engineers to make a product that their industry thought impossible: a processor so cheap it could change the world. But to make it happen they would have to struggle in ways they could have never expected.

This an older history of the Commodore Amiga by Nostalgia Nerd. It has a bunch of good information and I love the accent of these documentaries :)

  • The Helper The Helper:
    I just saw a bunch of running and jumping past all the enemies look like it was scripted as he said I guess I should have watched the whole thing. I only got a couple of minutes in. You should post that video in the forum Tom

    Currently busy with making the run even better, so I'll post that new one once I'm done. Right now, I had to modify the emulator itself, the tools that makes this video, and some RAM address disassembling / reverse-engineering to get the right values, and such.
