Mortal Kombat: Defenders of the Realm (The Animated Series) Intro
 
01:01
Mortal Kombat: Defenders of the Realm (or Mortal Kombat: The Animated Series) was a cartoon that acted as an alternate sequel to the first Mortal Kombat movie. The series ran for one season of 13 episodes in 1995. Being a Saturday morning cartoon, the violence was toned down considerably, but it's probably a bit more faithful than the Street Fighter cartoon. The series also marked the introduction of Quan Chi to the franchise.

Sonic the Hedgehog "SaTAM" Intro
 
01:04
This is the introduction to the "SatAM" Sonic the Hedgehog cartoon, named as such because it aired on Saturday mornings, and also to differentiate it from lighthearted The Adventures of Sonic the Hedgehog cartoon.

The Adventures of Super Mario Bros 3 Intro
 
00:32
This is the opening sequence for The Adventures of Super Mario Bros 3, the second Mario cartoon in the West. It lasted for only a short run of 13 episodes, before being succeeded by the Super Mario World segments in Captain N and the New Super Mario World.

Mega Man Cartoon Intro
 
01:00
Capcom and Ruby Spears teamed up in the mid 1990s to produce cartoons based on their popular properties, one of which was Mega Man. The series ran for 27 episodes across 2 seasons. It was actually quite popular at the time, but its a bit of a departure from the Japanese interpretation of the character.

Nintendo Entertainment System Ad 1987 #2 - Australia
 
00:45
This was an advertisement for the Nintendo Entertainment System which aired on television around the time of the system's launch in Australia in 1987, This is a variation of the "You cannot beat us" ad, which features a few more characters and game footage. The ad doesn't exactly make the games seem fun.

Sega Master System Rental Ad - Australia
 
01:02
This is an advertisement featured on rental VHS cassettes which highlighted the fact that Sega Master System games and consoles were available for rental. Previously, Ozisoft had sought to stomp out the rental market because they felt it harmed sales, but they quickly found that people liked to try before they buy, leading to them embracing the rental market. Features an interesting intepretation of "Final Strike" from the After Burner OST as background music.

Adventures of Sonic the Hedgehog Intro
 
01:01
Two Sonic the Hedgehog cartoons went to air around the same time in 1992 - The Adventures of Sonic the Hedgehog; a lighter, comedy focused series and the darker, more serious action oriented series Sonic the Hedgehog (known to fans as SatAM due to its original timeslot). I am in the minority that enjoy this more comedy oriented series because it fits in more with the way I interpreted Sonic when playing the games as a kid. It borrows a lot of classic animation tricks and gags from the golden age of animation. Unfortunately, the poor quality animation does grate a bit.

Intellivision Ad - Australia
 
00:59
This is an advertisement from Australian television advertising the Mattel Intellivision. Not exactly sure when this aired, but it was some time between 1979 and 1984.

Street Fighter Cartoon Intro
 
01:01
Capcom's merchandising machine was in full flight in the mid 1990s with a bunch of their popular franchises getting toys, comics and cartoon series. Leading the way was Street Fighter. The Street Fighter cartoon kind of follows the story of the movie, with Guile leading a crack team of martial artists named Street Fighter. It's odd going back and seeing how Guile was positioned as the de facto main character in the US interpretations of Street Fighter, while Ryu, who is generally positioned as the protagonist of the series, takes a back seat. The show ran for two seasons of about 13 episodes. You can get it on DVD now.

Aussie Rules Footy (NES)
 
16:12
Aussie Rules Footy is one of two officially licensed Australia-only releases for the Nintendo Entertainment System. It was developed and published by Beam Software. It was the first Australian Rules Football game developed for a home console. It doesn't have any AFL or AFLPA licenses, though. I actually did a lot better in this recording than I normally do, managing to win by about 10 points. Not bad for someone who hasn't played the game in nearly 20 years.

Mario Kart 64 Ad - Australia
 
00:30
This is an advertisement for Mario Kart 64 which aired on Australian television in the middle of 1997. It features comedian Tim Ferguson attempting a stunt involving driving a go-kart between two trains, but chickening out. It was part of a series of ads starring the comedian which promoted the system and its games prior to launch and during its first year of availability.

EA Sports World Cup 98 Ad - Australia
 
00:30
This is an advertisement for World Cup 98 which aired on Australian television during the tournament. Other than the shots featuring Mark Viduka and the Classification Board rating, you could conclude that it's just an ad recycled from America.
Let's Play International Cricket (NES)
 
09:32
This is my first Let's Play video, a two parter involving a 10 over game of International Cricket on the NES. International Cricket is one of a few Australian exclusives on the system, so I thought I'd take the opportunity to show everybody what the game is about. In the first part, I'm controlling the batting team, Australia. Witness as I humiliate myself and cop a hat trick at the end of the innings. Stay tuned for part 2 where I attempt to bowl England out. Part Two - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kFPSfGT5YVA

This is an advertisement for the Sega Mega Drive and Mega CD which aired on Australian television in 1994. It is an early CG ad which depicts a world called The Net, where these character wage a war against gamers' thirst for more software or some crap like that. There is at least three of these ads. This one shows off Thunderhawk, Sonic the Hedgehog 3 and NBA Jam.

X-Men (Genesis / Mega Drive) - Retro Gaming Theatre
 
05:04
This video is from X-Men for the Sega Genesis and Mega Drive, released by Sega in 1993. The game isn't the prettiest one around, but it was a heck of a lot better than the other home console X-Men games released before. This video takes you through the first part of the Savage Lands, including the boss fight with Juggernaut which ends really awkwardly this time. We were also a bit lazy today and recorded this from an emulator rather than the real hardware - we're not happy with how it turned out, so we might end up redoing this one at a later time. Game: X-Men Year: 1993 System: Sega Genesis / Mega Drive Developer: Western Technologies, Inc. Publisher: Sega

Sega Mega Drive / Genesis: The Next Level Ad #2 1994 - Australia
 
01:15
This is an advertisement which aired on Australian television in 1994. It is part of a series of advertisements Sega Ozisoft ran during the year relating to a virtual Sega world. This one promotes Ren and Stimpy: Stimpy's Invention and Virtua Racing, and features a tip for Sonic the Hedgehog 3. I believe there is at least two more of these.

Nintendo 64 Clear Purple Controller Bundle Ad - Australia
 
00:28
This is an advertisement for the Nintendo 64 Clear Purple Controller Bundle which aired in the middle of 1998 in Australia. For the standard Nintendo 64 price, you'd get an extra limited edition clear purple pad. The ad also features a number of Player's Choice games like Super Mario 64, Mario Kart 64 and GoldenEye 007. GoldenEye 007 is blurred and bleeped out in the ad - I assume this is due to restrictions on when MA15+ rated games could be advertised.

Atari 7800 Rap Ad - Australia

This is an advertisement for the Atari 7800 which aired in Australia in 1990. It features a rather embarassing rap number dubbed over a montage of 7800 software. No mention of the 32-in-1 cart which came standard with all machines down here, though

Tekken 2 (PSX) - Retro Gaming Theatre
 
07:58
Tekken 2 was one of the biggest hits on the original PlayStation - a fantastic sequel to Namco's popular 3D fighter. This video features me playing through as Law, abusing the cheap flip kick to cover up for my lack of skill. We actually had a bit of trouble with this episode with regards to maintaining the audio syncing - we need to get better capture equipment. I ended up recording about 8 playtests, and this was the best one. Game: Tekken 2 Platform: PlayStation Year: 1997 Developer: Namco Publisher: Namco Format: PAL
Dragon's Lair Cartoon Intro
 
00:49
This is the introductory sequence from the Dragon's Lair Saturday morning cartoon which aired for 13 episodes on ABC in 1984-85. The series was developed by Ruby Spears and was based on the hit arcade game of the same name. The series chronicles the further adventures of Dirk the Daring, his horse Bertram, his squire Timothy and the lovely Princess Daphne. Of course, being developed for TV, it doesn't have the same lush level of animation as the video game. Warner Bros. made the series available on DVD via on-demand manufacturing in 2011.

Shane Warne Cricket (Mega Drive / Genesis) - Retro Gaming Theatre
 
07:47
Ah, video game cricket. It's an alien concept to most of the video game playing world, but us Commonwealth types seem to dig it. Shane Warne's Cricket is the Australian version of Brian Lara Cricket '96. The games are fundementally the same barring the title screen and the use of Australian state-based domestic teams rather than the British county teams. The thing about this game is that it's painfully dull to watch, so we restricted our video to just a handful of overs. I'm controlling the bowling team, which I don't particularly like doing in this game, so we might do a batting team video later on.
