Welcome to the weekend with Matt Chat 5, covering another of the all-time greatest retrogaming classics. This week I look at Acornsoft's Elite, the pioneering space-trading game that made such a huge impact in the mid 1980s on the BBC Micro and other platforms.
Welcome to the weekend with Matt Chat #4: M.U.L.E.! So, leave those multiple-use labor elements alone for awhile and check out my new YouTube video!

Hi, everyone. I hope you enjoy my first-ever effort to make a video! Matt Chat #1: Pool of Radiance. Please let me know what you think and feel free to give me tips or suggestions for future episodes. Just keep in mind that this is my first attempt at this, so be gentle. :)
Welcome to a very special The Goodnight Gamer - Episode 2, on the serious topic of Manbags, shot on the Flip camera.
Well, it's been quite some time since I've bothered doing any on camera work (2004 to be exact) and I was kind of itching to do something a bit different again, so I came up with the idea for "The Goodnight Gamer", where, late at night, after my family goes to sleep (and already in my "jammies"), I go downstairs and do quick 10 minute or less episodes covering all kinds of (mostly vintage) videogame and computer content, much like Armchair Arcade itself. This first episode breaks that rule by being much longer than 10 minutes (hence being broken down into four parts), but was necessary to provide the baseline tour of the "facility". The idea is to have fun and knock these out quick - in one take - with minimal editing and post processing from a cheap flash memory-based pocket camcorder. I'll of course refine the concept over time. Enjoy and I'd love to hear feedback (bad and good). Thanks! [Note: I had to use Revver this time due to exceeding 10 minutes, but I'll get it down for the next episode so it also fits YouTube]

I saw this blog posted on Digg and thought I'd put it up here for folks to wince at. It concerns a television show named "Life" that recently had a segment involving Prince of Persia.
Some days you just have to wonder how lame life must have been before the internet. I can't get enough of this video! Check it out and please let us know what you think!
Today I have a little treat for Amiga fans--100 Amiga Games in 10 Minutes by Laffer 35. Laffer has put together clips of 100 different Amiga games based on the top 100 list at Lemon Amiga. As Laffer suggests, if you don't like the techno soundtrack, feel free to play whatever you want in the background (preferably some classic Amiga mods or chiptunes!!) BTW, see the link above for the list of games used in the clip below. How many of these games do you remember?
NOTE: Link has been fixed. Now the music is 100% better! Don't you dare not listen to it. ;-P
