Well, Episode 4 will NOT be on the TRS-80. I'm still doing at least one on the TRS-80, but I couldn't get the proper time to do it right, so I decided to keep things simple and just focus on a single game on another platform just to get something done quickly. I filmed the host segments (in a different way, though it's obvious what I did and need to improve my technique (as usual)) and most of the in-game footage, so it should get done by this weekend after I cut it all together. The game itself is very difficult, but I hope to reach a point where I do at least one boss battle, because it would be a shame if I couldn't show one of them.

Yeah, it's definitely a step-up from the usual 7800 fare in terms of complexity, it's just a shame that it's so incredibly difficult. The SNK connection is interesting as well.

Ha, I didn't realize I last

Ha, I didn't realize I last mentioned this back at the end of April. How time gets aways from you! I attempted for the FINAL time yesterday to get to a boss battle in Midnight Mutants so I could show it in the episode, but I failed yet again, and this with a walkthrough. The issue with the game is NOT in the figuring out what's what, but in the execution. The action sequences are very difficult and somewhat clumsy, making progress very, very difficult regardless of knowing where to go and what to get. That will be reflected I think when I finally cut this sucker together. It will be nice getting this off the old hard drive and to start to release these videos again. I've certainly learned my lesson with counting on doing certain things within a game. Don't.
