Howdy, howdy, howdy!

I often help out my friend to edit his Youtube videos and this week decided to give it a go myself! I'm not one to speaking in a presenting manner but i think it turned out alrights :)

If I get more time I might do similar videos on PS2 & PS3 games:

Feel free to check it out if you have 5 minutes:

Great video! I like how you physically place the games down on the desk and pile them up. That’s a nice scene transition idea. Simple and effective, and it proves that you actually have these games.

I must confess that I hadn't even heard of Zero Divide or Ronin Blade but they look like they were fun. And I've never played Hogs of War and always felt like I’d missed out.

Also... Croc’s World 3? Wow... What I find funny about that is the fact that Croc itself initially came about because the original plan for a Yoshi spin-off game fell apart when the studio behind Croc moved away from Nintendo, so they created an original character instead (thankfully, since the original Croc is one of my all-time favourite platformers). So I find it quite funny that in more recent times Croc has ended up a victim of a cheap Marioesque rip-off. That doesn't look like it retains any of the charm of the original Croc at all.

You don't have to be this shy, your video turned out great! It was really interesting for me - I've never heard about these games, so it was so cool to get to know more PS1 games! My first console was PS2 but I remember playing the PS1 of one of my friends as a kid, so I like to talk/think about this awesome little device! (I should buy one myself, that 'slim' version PSOne is so cute!)

I really liked the video and audio quality as well. It might be just me, but it felt you speak a little faster than I am used to (still could understand without problem, and I love your accent!), maybe you were excited?:D

I also loved to see not only gameplay about the mentioned games, but the actual physical copy of each of them! It was a good idea. :D

I subscribed to your channel, can't wait to watch a similar video about PS2 and PS3 hidden gems!:D

Thanks for the support guys :)

Dionysos - I didn't know that tid-bit for Croc but I've always felt Croc's aesthetic suited to be on t he N64 most of all - the bulky looking texture are very similar to Banjo & Mario 64. I'd have loved to see a Croc 3 instead of this drivel :P But with the recent revival of Crash & Spyro, you truly never know!!!

JigoKuu - Hehe yeah the dinky PSones are cute, sadly the only PS1 i have is the chunky original - Snagged it at a charity store for a good price though! As for the pace, I think it's because of the Frankenstein edit, and sometimes having a heavy inhale before line delivery - I'll work on that next time :)

I'm really going to have to give the PS2 a think, as I haven't has as much access to a PS2 in recent years due to the lack of backwards compatibility - I have an OG PS3 but it sounds like an airport whenever I use it so I'm fearful! Sort of hoping the PS5 takes note of how good Xbox has been handing backwards compatitbility and maybe let me make use of my PS2 titles again. But I'll probably do recording with my friend next week and have it edited for the following... I hopes :P

Yeah, it was originally a Yoshi game being planned for the N64 and was going to become the first 3D exploratory platforming game, but then Nintendo lost confidence in the idea for reasons unknown (maybe they wanted Mario to get a game like this before Yoshi, hence Super Mario 64). Argonaut Games parted ways with Nintendo and then took their ideas to Fox Interactive and looked into different consoles - the rest is history. They redesigned the main character and also decided to create the Gobbos because they figured that a princess or damsel in distress would be a bit odd with an animal protagonist.

I really would love a Croc remaster or remake in the style of the Crash and Spyro remakes. There's something truly special about Croc... The cheeky devils scared me to death as a kid, but the music blew my mind.

Something else I recently learned. Croc was voiced by Jonathan Aris. He's a British actor I've seen in a number of things such as Sherlock, Black Mirror, the recent Dracula series and so on, usually in supporting roles.

I would never in all my days have expected him to be Croc. :argor:


Sorry to derail this a bit, I just found an opportunity to briefly speak about Croc. I look forward to seeing your future videos in this style!

Haha, now I just envision Dracula saying "Wahoo!" as he takes his victim into his coffin - the level-outro jingle in full form as it happens :P

Oh it's a fantastic game, I know I have 100% the 1st game for certain but I don't think I've barely touched the 2nd to be honest. It seems to be much more of an open world adventure game than a standard level structure like the 1st game - Sort of like Kingsley's Adventure.
