Amstrad CPC: A Beeping Anthology

In late 2008, the Yak booted up his Amstrad CPC for the first time in more than ten years. For some reason, he felt compelled to record himself playing games that are a quarter of a decade old and upload them to the internet. Why did he think this was a good idea? And what the hell is that beeping in the background? Find out the answer to none of these questions in this compilation of Harry Yack's earliest attempts at video game commentary.

So what's new for seasoned Yak-watchers? As well as the remastered Harrier Attack and Stunt Car Racer videos you've already seen on the YouTube Channel, there are new, never-before-seen edits of the Continental Circus and Sultan's Maze Bog Standard Reviews. Although they aren't all that different from the originals, I feel it's those small changes that often make the real difference. Best of all, there is no more beeping! Joy of joys.

Thanks to Kevin MacLeod of incompetech.com for the music in all reviews except Continental Circus.
