Another true classic this week featuring two japanese exclusive mobile ports.

 

Great choice Mark.  :thumbsup:  :thumbsup:  :thumbsup:

 

Darius is a game that is really near & dear to me since I love playing it in the arcades. I spent so much money on playing it that I couldn't believe it when I actually ran out of money in my pockets and in my wallet!  :-D

 

Truly an amazing game it is. Thank you for sharing this with us Mark. I really enjoyed it for sure!  :)

Love Darius Gaiden Mark.

 

Such an excellent title that certainly will keep you busy for quite some time. Love how Windows 95 also received a port of it as well. 

 

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

Quite a fitting game for the Halloween season.  This week on Battle of the Ports we take a look at Wardner No Mori, also known as Pyros in the American arcades.

Hey Mark,

 

Another well done video my good man. Always love to see The Mega CD and love playing Final Fight CD with its excellent soundtrack remix. Thank you again kind sir!

If you're in the mood to keep with the Neo Geo ports, KoF '98 is one I've always wanted to see.

It's especially interesting since it's had release on 3 different pieces of arcade hardware (snk mvs, igs pgm 2, and taito type x).  It's also had some heavily upgraded console releases like the dreamcast port (called "kof 99" for whatever reason).  It's even possible some of these ports are so far from the source material that they really aren't even the same game, but I think it'd be neat to see them all compared.

Not sure if this has been asked but have you done a video on the Famicom and Famicom Disk System?

I had some time today to check out a couple of your Battle of the Ports videos (Salamander and Darius). Well, you have a new subscriber. You rule, and your videos rule too!

Awesome Mark.

 

The arcade version is my favorite. Games like this use to scare me growing up. The arcade version is my favorite out of all of them.

 

Thank you again Mark. Keep up the great work.  :)

Thanks for the updated video, I was wondering why the Amiga & ST ports of Mega Twins were missing before...

I will have to watch the updated video on Chiki Chiki Boys. This is one of my all time favorite Genesis/Mega Drive games, and the definition of a hidden gem.
