Your embedded video isn't working, "Playback on other websites has been disabled by the video owner."

Then why embed it? Should have just posted the link. Many prefer to watch without leaving the site.........

Bloody hell you guys are lazy. Just click the YT link!

 

@FunkySpectrum: Your commentary was bloody priceless. I was rolling with that bit about the Queen's throne and poetry recitals! :rolling:

 

Halo 2600 is a fun game. My best friend is a Halo fan and thought I was an idiot for buying it though. Never finished it due to the three lives not being enough later on when the enemies start dogpiling on you.

When you post a YouTube link the forum's software automatically converts it into an embedded video -

The way around it would be like this, but with just 13 posts I wouldn't expect Funkyspectrum to be that familiar with the forum software.

OK fair enough.....................still should have embedding enabled to watch here though imho, seeing a thumbnail that cannot be clicked on and played where it is embedded has always bugged me.  :roll:  :thumbsdown:

 

@Kosmic Stardust I'll be lazy as I damn well please  :P

Ironically when I use the mobile version of the site on my 3DS, it reformats the video as a link instead of embed. I'm trying to figure out how to type the embed tags so that doesn't happen.

One click, and it opens in a new tab. If the OP wants to make people watch it on youtube, so be it. I found his stream-of-consciousness style commentary absolutely hilarious so you are really missing out on some comedy gold if you refused to watch over something as simple as clicking the link in the embed window. :roll:

See I found the commentary the opposite.

thanks a lot mate i am glad someone enjoyed it and, yes, i did think people complaining about having to make the oh so tiresome 1/2 a second jaunt over to youtube to watch it was a bit strange :-/ 

Plenty more reviews coming, including another couple of 2600 reviews next week ! There'll be at least 1 review a day for the next week (from lots of different formats)

my stuff is the youtube equivalent of marmite. if you find angry joe funny or think pat contri is hands down hilarious you're probably not going to find much entertainment in what i do ;-)

for people with a more abstract and hard working sense of humour i like to think there's something worthwhile ! i don't script anything and just put in the game and do the commentaries live with no plan whatsoever i find it most enjoyable to make my videos that way ! some like them, some don't, you can't please everyone !

Let us know in this thread when you get more vids up. I rarely ever check my YT subs, too much junk to sift through...

i've got quite a few more vids up since you posted this, mate, i usually post a video at least every couple of days ! I am at the moment doing a playthrough of THE REALM OF NO (an atari adventure game) in which the viewers choose the outcome, go over to my channel and have a look at those videos ! I've also reviewed a few atari 2600 games since the HALO review, too. It's all on my channel ! Enjoy !
