  • Hi all. Apologies for the lack of video content this month. I've been pre-occupied with family matters all month, trialling my daughter at a new school, and many of the other things that crop up during life. This video was supposed to be a "quick filler" video put out a couple of weeks back, but it has taken me more than 2 weeks to edit it down the 6 hours of footage, produce the subtitles, etc! Unfortunately the office is still an absolute state from it! But here we are! Anyway, I hope you are all well, and that the chaos in this video distracts you from the chaos in the world, if just for a while. Much love, Peter.

  • Hey Peter. To use the Strategic Commander in anything above Windows XP you will need the controller software I wrote quite a while ago. It's called Strategic Engine v1.3. Needs a bit of an overhaul but is still working in Windows 10. I also have the original Microsoft drivers if you need a copy. Just flick me a PM. Cheers, Phil.

  • well wioth the new lock down i think your going to have plenty of content, dam! i'd be happy if that was like cassette tapes of music but sadly its spectrum games but yessh, mind you there are plenty of uk ppl tht might want that one or need a lebel/tape upgrade, also i think LGR is safe for unboxing vids as well you've run out of camera space, run out of space for stuff and the assiant has broken the lighting, yep i think he's safe

  • (17:44) USPS Priority Mail one better than First Class. Sometimes First Class comes with Tracking, but usually that's extra, and you have to buy the packaging (through USPS or another store). Priority ships a day or so faster than First Class, Tracking and insurance is included, and USPS doesn't charge you for the box. When the shipping weight and cost of purchasing a box is figured in, Priority is sometimes less expensive than First Class. Regular Priority comes in two flavours, one of them being Flat Rate, but the two boxes look nearly identical and are easily confused. Priority Mail Express is the premium version. REMEMBER: During the Christmas shipping season, it doesn't matter how fricking large the box is, USPS _can and will_ entirely lose it while in their possession, in-transit, never to be seen again. They still owe me US$ 450.00 from 2019.

  • Am I the only one who came for the IR 7000 in the thumbnail and can't find it in the video? I love the channel and all, but I am not into almost hour long unboxing videos. I just wanted to see the IR 7000, as I still have mine from elementary school. Because I thought it was so cool I could never get rid of it. =/

  • @Nostalgia Nerd - When you go through those Electronic's Boutique catalogs... if there are any from the mid to late 90s, can you let me know if there is a game that advertises that it will "Blow your socks off"? I remember this from when I was younger... and there were a pair of argyle socks in some packages. Been trying to find out what the game was for quite a while now.

  • Problem with the Evercade was that you didn't know what system the game you are playing was from. Some collections used NES ROMs which were not necessarily a good version of the game. I believe they now say which version (System) the game is. I could be wrong (feel free to correct me)

    • I get annoyed with unboxing, I would so sort all the packaging into rubbish for the incinerator, card for recycle, card for reuse , ditto bubble wrap and plastic wrapping. I would also pre sort boxes into size, start with smallest so they can be stacked into the next one as you go along.
