Kim Justice

Hey there! I'm Kim Justice. I make documentaries about old computer and video games, mostly with a European slant - it's all about the ZX Spectrum, the Commodore Amiga, the C64, plenty of great companies like Ocean Software, rises and falls, tales of technological and bureaucratic disaster...all sorts! And of course, there's the Sega Mega Drive and most certainly not the Genesis! I also do lots of game reviews for most any system under the sun...if you want to hear about what's old and retro, then visit my channel below...


Dreamcast Guy

I review all the latest games, do a Top 10 every Thursday, and just talk about how great gaming is!

Lazy Game Reviews

Opinionated reviews, commentary, and snark on games and more.

Retro PC games, The Sims, Oddware, thrifting!

‚óŹ SCHEDULE:
Mondays: more relaxed videos on whatever (shorter game reviews, LGR Plays, unusual topics)
Fridays: usually more substantive videos on stuff (Reviews, Oddware, Tech Tales, LGR Thrifts)

"Laziness is a state of mind, not necessarily a lack of action."


Nostalgia Nerd

I'm Nostalgia Nerd... I have an addiction to Nostalgia. I talk about software, hardware, games, toys, programmes, magazines and other things from the 70s, 80s and 90s, with a dry wit/humour (some say). The channel's main focus is computer related items from the 80s & 90s.

I aim to publish at least 1 video per week, sometimes several. I don't have a schedule... I just whack one out when I feel like it (filth).

Feel free to visit my website, other social accounts or just sit here and stare... I really don't mind, just make sure you're decent.

Retro Revisited

Retro Revisited channel is the home of several retro gaming focused videos hosted by Simon Reed, and they're usually one of the following:

Retro News Round-Up: A monthly summary on all the latest retro gaming news
Retro Revisited: Retrospectives on a range of titles and systems
The Gaming Book Club: Short and concise (hopefully!) reviews on books focused on gaming 
Top 5s: Pretty self explanatory this one, but I try to look at areas of gaming not often discussed

They make at least one video every month, so be sure to subscribe if you want to know exactly when new content is posted.

The Drisk

At the moment I am attempting to tell the history of video games from the beginning right until the present day. 

On reading video game histories I have always been frustrated by many of the systems I and my friends grew up with in the UK not being mentioned or at best being only given a foot note. The reason is of course many of these publications are American in origin and so of course over there these systems were little known about. Also a lot of these books didn't cover everything I felt they should with many great games and developers being missed out. Therefore I have contemplated on doing my own video game history for many years as whilst not being the best person to do the task I could at least try and offer something different to what is out there. Originally I was going to do a print on demand book with mind to just print it for me and have it sat on the shelf which would expensive to do but kind of cool. But when I saw retro videos on You Tube I realised I could do a Video book on You Tube and then at least a few others could enjoy it as well.

Ahoy - RetroAhoy

As authorities on the history of the medium go, people don’t get much more compelling than this deliciously-voiced guide to gaming’s past.

Recent uploads of his ‘RetroAhoy’ series provide epic narrations on the stories behind Doom, Syndicate and Dizzy among others. But that’s not all. His feature-length documentary Nuclear Fruit is an almost Adam Curtis esque exploration of the Cold War’s influence on video games. And it’s available absolutely free.
