    Curious to see if anyone knows about any Youtuber that has good retrospectives on CRPG's, or has done some on series like Wizardry and Might And Magic.

    Also, Civvie did a new video about an awful DOS FPS:

    How the hell did i not hear about that game before!?

    While i wish he would go more in-depth over the differences, Retro Core has a long running series about ports, first showing the original, talking about it and then going over the ports to compare, latest video was about Shadow Of The Beast, and damn, the difference between the Amiga and Atari ST versions was quite big!

    Also, didn't know there were two different versions for the Genesis/Mega Drive, i do recall playing the first version though and not liking it that much.

    For reviews, I enjoy Worth A Buy. Mack gives no-bullshit reviews. He spends the money and plays the shitty games so you don't have to. His picks are usually decent. He doesn't play many RPGs though.

    One very focused gaming channels is ICARUSLIV3S, a channel pretty much dedicated to classic DOOM, or to be more accurate, the mods, the guy makes a review of various mods and from time to time puts some large Twitch streams on Youtube and well, it's always fascinating how old games can have such dedicated and creative modders...which is why the latest video is about a Star Trek mod:

    Civvie 11 has done yet another video, this time on the Blood remaster, and since he loves Blood and the developer put a reference to him in an achievement, you can probably guess where this is going...he is dissapointed with the port, doesn't recommend it at all and tells people to wait for it to get patched or just play one of the old source ports:

    Research Indicates did one of the best Trespasser reviews/LPs. He hasn't done much since, except for some civil war and Crimson Skies gaming. But the Trespasser stuff was amazing.

    DJ Slopes is a guy that talks a lot about retro gaming, some computer stuff, failed Kickstarter games and projects(like the controller you play with your genitals which was indeed a thing someone tried to sell) and more, he even did a short documentary about the bad Kickstarter of the ZX Vega+ handheld, basically an attempt to make people pay for a handheld ZX Spectrum:

    Somewhat 8 to 32-bit console-focused, somewhat technical (he's got a great CRT TV repair video), but he's also got some great PC content, including one video explaining the proper aspect ratio for DOS games (this is a topic any DOS gamer would know, but he also criticizes how websites just put up direct screenshots from emulators without taking aspect ratio into consideration).

    DavidXNewton doesn't have a ton of subscribers, but he has some interesting stuff about PC gaming, including Epic before they went on to make Fortnite and EGS:

    Though he lately became focused on only playing DOOM maps and mods.

    He sounds like a tard. Finicky rules about spikes? You press the walk button and can go through them. You don't press that button and you get stabbed. Simple. Also who da fak is watching 51 minute videos of some ancient game?

    I never hear of it before but it does not seem so ancient. It is pretty modern, at least comparable with DMC5 and similars.

    There are newer games in the series but that one is from about 1989.
