Zilog and Moto Youtube channel
Post Posted: Wed Jun 24, 2020 2:58 am
Hi all, I'm Dave, and I run the youtube channel Zilog and Moto. My goal over the next 20 years or so, is to perform a weekly video review/playthrough of every English language SMS, Genesis/MD, Sega CD and 32X title. So far, I've done 69 episodes over the last year and a half, and of those episodes, 17 have been for SMS titles.

I would like to spread the world about these videos by coming here and sharing the links when they're produced and uploaded, which would be about one per month, as I switch between the platforms.

However, I also want to respect everyone's space, and if that would be considered spamming, I obviously don't want to do that.

If the consensus is that sort of thing would be welcomed, I'll post the links for the first 17, and then update when new videos are uploaded.

Thank you for your time, and have a nice day!

-Dave

Hello Dave,
That's cool, however note that our forums software is configured in a way preventing people from posting links until they have 3 messages posted, so you may have to make a few posts (even dummy ones here are ok) in order to get past that limit. Thanks for asking.

Totally understand, and thanks for the info. I've actually done a bit of research here on certain titles previously, and I've greatly appreciated the previous help.

And just to be clear, when I say "English Language", what I mean is every game released in the US and Euro territories, plus the 10 or so Brazilian exclusives that aren't in Portuguese. I have nothing against Japanese or Portuguese, but since I can't read those languages, I don't think I'd be able to do a fair review of them. So, right now, my list is looking like:

302 Master System
790 Genesis/MD
147 Sega CD
39 32X
1278 Total Games

At 1 per week, it's going to take another 24 years or so, so it's definitely not a short term project, but I've been having fun with it so far, and I've learned a lot.

And a link for the channel in case you're interested in any of the videos for the other Sega platforms:

Hopefully you enjoy, and admittedly, if you click on the Pro Wrestling video, I know it's a bit rough, it was the first one I did for this project, and I think things have gotten better since then. The next video will probably be in about 2.5 weeks, I've got two Genesis titles to cycle through before getting back to the Master System, but I'll come back and post that when it's uploaded.

Thank you very much for the kind words. And to everyone that clicked on a video or subscribed, I really appreciate it. I'm not working on this project to be famous, it's just a hobby, and I want my collection to mean something other than just be bunch of hunks of plastic on a bookshelf.

Also thanks to the site admins for allowing me to start this thread. Now if I can just get those guys over at Sega-16 to approve my login request. :)

Hi all, again, thanks for everyone that's checked out the channel, subscribed, or just watched a video or two. I've added a new Master System review, this time for Casino Games, which I had no idea was done by Compile. Probably should have reviewed Parlor Games first as it came out previous...oh well.

Hey, I've got another Master System review up. This week, it's the Taito Arcade port of Rastan. This was an interesting one, good in places and disappointing in others.

Hi everyone, I hope everyone's 2020 is slowly getting better. I'm back with another Master System based episode of Zilog and Moto, this time a look at Slap Shot!

Hi all, here's another Master System review. I'd planned on doing Asterix this week, but I had issues with my Power Base Converter, so had to delay that, and instead, pull out one that wouldn't take too long to go over, Marksman Shooting and Trap Shooting.

Hey, here's this month's Master System review. This one was actually recorded on an actual Master System (note the jailbars from Scart), due to me having issues with my Power Base Converter/Genesis (no idea what's wrong, but I think it's the Genesis, waiting on my other Genesis to get recapped).

Asterix is a great title, and if you haven't played it, you're missing out.

Hi everyone, hope your November is going well, as we get closer to Thanksgiving, well, in the US at least. Really hope that the holiday season will be a good one this year and that 2021 will be a better year for everyone. But before that time comes, I'll probably have at least one or two more reviews on the schedule.

This week, it's Astro Warrior. I was flat out amazed at how good this game is, for being a 1986 release and less than a megabit. I just can't wrap my head around how someone could look at this, and then 1942 on the NES and think, "Yeah, the NES is better." Could have used a few more stages, though.

Hey everyone, I hope everyone is able to begin to celebrate the holidays in some way. It's time for another video, this time about Rocky. Interesting idea for a game, and it does do a few things well.

Happy almost new year to everyone. I'm closing out 2020 on the channel with a look at another Euro Exclusive, this time the Tekmagic port of Pac-Mania. It...leaves a bit to be desired.

Perhaps we could cover a 2P game together someday, is there any Master System (or Game Gear) emulator with good netplay support?

I'm not opposed to it. I've only used emulators for the lightgun games, as I don't have a CRT anymore, so I'm not sure what kind of options Kega has, or maybe something through retroarch. Would require some experimenting.

And, with it being the beginning of the new year, here's the end of year wrap up video from Season 2. In this video, I put together my top 10 games from Season 2, and the history of the channel, and then the same thing for worst 10 games. I also give out some individual awards for the games I reviewed last year.

Note, there is some content in here that is about games from other Sega platforms, so if you're not interested in anything at all besides the Master System, I won't take offense to ignoring it. I'll be back in three weeks with my first Master System review of Season 3 (2021).
