Hi everybody. My brothers and I have made a new Youtube channel called "Basement Brothers" and I am making a playlist for some in-depth reviews of games for the NEC PC-8801 under the name "PC-88 Paradise". Please come check us out since we are a new channel and we could use your support sharing, liking, subscribing and commenting.

The first video is a very long and detailed look at Ys 1 for PC-88.

(As you can see we currently have a number of arcade board footage videos up on our channel. Now that we've changed the channel name we are planning to do more in-depth videos with editing and narration like the Ys video.)

Thanks for your time and feedback!

I've finally got the second video up!

The game is Star Trader by Falcom. Please check it out. Your honest feedback will be greatly appreciated.

Please give it a like on youtube and share with your friends if you find it educational and/or entertaining! :)

Very nice and exhaustive review of a quite original game for its time. It reminds me of Spiral Wave on PCE, which also blends adventure, RPG and (decidedly crappy) shooting sequences a la Space Harrier. Japanese studios were rather fond of hybrid genres (Herzog, Langrisser...).

I personally prefer the X68000 "remake" of Star Trader, which has an amazing soundtrack. But your voice-over is priceless :mrgreen:

Hey guys. Sorry this video took so long for me to put together. It took me a while to learn to play this game, capture all the game footage, and edit it all together into a somewhat coherent video. It was fun to do a game that wasn't made by Falcom this time. I've got plenty more PC-88 games in my collection by Falcom and others that I'm still looking forward to covering in the future. Anyway, for now I'm dying to know how you guys like this game and my video!

Love your videos.

currently have the pc-8801 original model and the PC-8801FA. I guess the MC could be another one to get.
