Hi!

First of all... This is Dany, from Spain :)

I've searching on almost all Internet, looking for Video Reviews about 8 games bits consoles and computers. I found a few (lucky of me, I catched 1000 Bulletin Video Magazines and the Three volumes of How to beat videogames!)

But the thing that Im looking it's the kind of stuff that Bill made on his superb mini-reviews (as I said to him, they are no "mini" at all to me, neither on time or quality :D) for some Atari Games. Did you guys and girls could help me on my quest? :D I found some cool stuff on youtube, but Im an addict, I need a daily dose :)

Bill told me something about a regular Turbo Grafx releases of that kind, so, that could be a good star... Anyone knows something about it?

Greets and thanks!

I do still have the

I do still have the originals, I'm just in the process of moving to Portland, OR over the next few weeks. Once I move I'll have high speed Internet (finally!!), which will make things MUCH easier. :)

Yeah, they would have been

Yeah, they would have been brought over if Mat had them on our servers, but he hosted them on his old school servers, so they're no longer available to me. He just needs to put them in a place on our server where we can link to them.

those video's don't consume a lot of bandwidth

The videofiles are relatively small, Matt and I both used the WMV format and files are no more than 5Mb. Which is quite small when you compare it to some of the pictures and illustrations found on the web.

You can put your old video

You can put your old video files back, Mat, if you have them. Either point to something like "You Tube" or we can host them here. They'll have little impact on bandwidth since they're part of "past issues". All other previous content is now up, so we should have your stuff up too. We can also modify the old Website to link to the content too.

Due to bandwidth issues at

Due to bandwidth issues at the time, the older video files were hosted on my college account, which is not online anymore since I have graduated from college.

I have the video files on my computer and we are discussing how to effectively put video reviews on Armchair Arcade.

Rest assured, danytoon, that at some point we will have video reviews back on and end up producing new retro game video reviews. :)

Thanks for that url Bill, it

Thanks for that url Bill, it was twice useful, both for the video review, and the deep discover of the PCEngineFX, what a cool console! :D

Thanks both...

Any interest on 1000 Bulletin Video Magazine? It was a publication from the 80s with good reviews of games from all systems (computers only...)

Have also de "How to Beat Videogames" collections, with clues and strategies for a bunch of games from the 80s too...

I can share them by any method you prefer...

I did some retro video

I did some retro video reviews of GBC/GBA retro-compilation games back for the old classic site.

Mark did a couple too, if memory serves.

Donkey Kong GBC Video Review

The other video reviews I did are not online anymore.
