DOS Nostalgia - my new site!

Post by Anatoly » Fri Feb 06, 2009 2:59 am

I'm sorry if this will appear as shameless advertising, but believe me I'm really interested in some advice/feedback. :) Here's my new project:
http://www.dosnostalgia.com
Woke up this morning (a day off work, thank god) and just felt like I should finally start working on it. The idea has been in my head for years. Nothing interesting up there now, but most of today was spent recording footage off DOSBox. I've worked on the first episode and after a few hours of video editing I had to stop and watch a movie. Editing is a pain in the ass!
My question is, if any of you do video blogging/reviews, can you throw any hints my way to make my life a bit easier? I really would like to continue working on this and make it into something interesting, but I don't want a second job.

Oh, and one more thing for those of you who are, like me, still interested in DOS stuff: Anything you'd like to see on the site? Reviews, articles or something else?

Wow, great work so far. Good luck with this!
I was only introduced to Alley Cat within the last year, and I'm pretty fascinated by it being such an old yet charming game.

Yep, I remember Commander Keen, but I've always preferred Dangerous Dave 2 as id Software's best early work.

Brilliant review Anatoly :tup:

When I had Windows 98, I remember trying this game for DOS, sadly I didn't get any sound for some reason, so it was nice hearing a different version of the music and SFX on the Video.

Thanks for posting! :cool:

It's been a while since I've posted here, but I'm bumping this thread because I'm bringing DOS Nostalgia back.
There's already a couple of new videos and more on the way.
http://www.dosnostalgia.com
Here's a direct link to the youtube channel: http://www.youtube.com/user/dosnostalgic
Also, here's a new official facebook page, so now you can get updates and take part in polls that help me to determine which games to review next: http://www.facebook.com/dosnostalgia
And since this is turning into a post full of links, here's me on twitter: http://twitter.com/#!/dosnostalgic

Pardon the shameless advertising. :)
