Huge December Unboxing | Nostalgia Nerd

Well, I hope you're enjoying the festive period, however you choose (or not choose) to celebrate it. Of course, Christmas seems to mostly be about materialism these days (nod to capitalism), so it seems appropriate that I've got a huge pile of donations to open for the holiday season. Some of these are viewer donations, others are from companies wishing for their products to be seen by all (although they tend to ask me first, so I can weed out anything which I don't like). LET THE UNBOXING BEGIN.
Thank you to all those who donated. If you wish to send something to me please email
Thank you also to Octav1us for helping me open this giant pile of things (AND FOR SCRATCHING MY DESK) -
You can grab a Pandora Box from and get $15 off using YXJTGF

If you believe I have forgotten to attribute anything in this video, please let me know, so I can add the source in. It takes time to make these videos and therefore it can be easy to forget things or make a mistake.

  • Thanks to everyone who donated this time around. Some fabulous items here, which I will either treasure or use to make a future video. Likely both. Apart from the DVDs obviously, which I'll use to make an archway of glory, leading into the studio.

  • Seriously, people need to grow up in the comments section. Men and women can be good friends together without there having to be some kind of romance in the middle, and I think these 2 are a great example of that. Any relationship that may develop between any 2 of the general UK youtuber gang is bwetween them 2 and should be respected... and those dirty comments are childish to say the least. I love the chemistry they have together, you can tell they really love each other in a good way, and you could see this also with Octav1us with Larry in that Spectrum Vega episode, which maybe they should have borrowed that sorry excuse of a console for opening these boxes, BTW!!

  • I hope the joystick on that 1/4 size Pacman game is not cheaply done - it's just that I remember seeing something on the cinemassacre site recently whereby a lot of these things - not just Pacman, but Missile Command, Galaga etc had some dodgy buttons, joysticks and trackballs...although to be fair, these things are not exclusively aimed at hardcore retro arcade gamers necessarily. Anyroad this video is absolutely amazing and hilarious and...I didn't know it was possible to donate anything to your HQ. I do have a ZX81 I got in 1983, and also it has a rubber keyboard membrane (Techtronics ? long time ago). The 16k ram pack up and died though. Also have got a power supply that is not yet connected to a plug. Very happy new year indeed to you and those close to you.

  • Not feeling the "chemistry" that people are mentioning here.......the whole thing is awkwardly forced and cringe-inducing and the girl seems genuinely offended at some points, and quite rightly so, while putting a brave face on it. Seeing a grown man acting like an 8 year old who doesn't know how to interact with the opposite sex, so just keeps saying "f***-off", isn't humour, it's kind of embarrassing all round. Add to this the poor camera angles so you can't really see any of the items properly, and the fact that about half of the 'donations' are tedious promotional stuff that is quickly brushed aside anyway. LGR / 8-Bit Guy this most certainly ain't.

    • @betamax80 yeah ofcourse PCMIDI like all dedicated mpus is supposed to accompany a soundcard and add a proper midi interface for that mt-32 goodness... the wavetable header can either add this to a system with a SBPRO for example or replace completely a bugged wt header like on some SB16s ... or run 2 wavetable boards in the same system :D the possibilities are endless LOL
