Some people here may know  that I run the YouTube Channel, Retro Core which is host to the weekly show, Battle of the Ports, now up to it's 133rd show!!  Each week a new video is uploaded that takes a look at an arcade game then all it's home ports.

 

This week we are taking a look at Side Arms Hyper Dyne

 

Last week Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom was featured

 

Not only is the Retro Core Channle host to Battle of the Ports but also the Retro Core show that sometimes goes around stores in Japan as well as the real Retro Core show which is now in to it's fifth season.

 

 

I hope the Retro Core Channel has something for you to enjoy!

Yeah, thanks for making the Battle of the Ports videos cause I've been watching them.  I like "Let's Compare..." gaming videos so these are a nice addition to them.

I second that. And I like the descriptions included in the Retro Core videos.

Well done as usual Mark. You always outdo yourself on your Battle of the Ports videos every time you post them. I love the arcade version of Continental Circus the most with my father after school. Some truly awesome moments in my life. :) 

 

Thank you again Mark. See you with more of your works! :)

Nice choice Mark with Terra Diver.

Thank you as always Mark. Keep up the great work.  :)

Last week the PlayStation fanboys were upset that Soukyugurentai wasn't as good as the saturn port.  Well, this week I think they'll be happy :)

Hey Mark,

 

What can I say? You really know how to outdo yourself kind sir. :)

 

Such a wonder title Ray Storm is. Everything about it for its time was outstanding. Makes you wish that we can go back in time to experience the true joy when titles like this one were the latest and greatest on what the industry had developed for us!  :)

 

Thank you as always Mark. Keep up the great work!  :)

I've got a great one coming up for this Saturdays show.   Just filmed 4 ports of it with a few more to video tomorrow :)   the hint is that this game is kind of related to Double Dragon but it's not be Technos nor is it a fighting game.

It's time to head back to the Mid 80's with what I think is the best animated laser disc game ever, Road Blaster!
