This is just a friendly reminder about my Extra Life charity fundraising drive that is currently going on! Even if you are unable to attend the main event (more details to follow!) that starts on December 13, know that you can still donate money to the charity! All money donated goes to give kids toys and video games while they are in the hospital, and since this is the holiday season, I think this is an even more admirable goal! So, whether you can donate $1 or $100, please know that every bit you donate really helps!
My goal for this so far is pretty modest. If we can raise at least $100, I will be happy. For every $20 beyond the initial goal, I will play an extra hour of gaming for those that tune in (or watch later when it is eventually edited for YouTube). My initial plan is to play approximately 5 hours of video games starting at 7:15pm or so Pacific time on December 13, but depending on how much money we raise, I will continue playing (with short breaks) potentially indefinitely!
So, please help me make this a fun event for all that can attend and, more importantly, for the kids who this will help make a brighter Christmas season for! Donate if you can and please spread the word!
Here is the link you can use to donate. Just click “Support” and follow the instructions!:
Allahweh’s Holiday 2013 Extra Life Fundraising Marathon – December 13-XX, 2013

It has been a while since I last streamed this game, but I am still very much interested in finishing the Zelda Classic fan-game “The Legend of Zelda: Isle of the Winds.” The game is a tricky one and very challenging compared to officially-released 2D titles in the series, and though I do enjoy a good challenge, I admit that there are parts of this game that seem overly unintuitive. Of course, many games in the NES era were very much so, but still, I do get frustrated in this game a bit!
Nonetheless, in this video I seek out and clear the optional Dungeon B, which affords us the Mirror Shield (which is a good upgrade to have). Then, I set out to clear Dungeon 7, and though it is tricky and requires me looking up a couple quick videos from the game’s creator, I do manage to clear it too. I thought about seeking out the four super-optional dungeons that will yield extra health, but I do not think that will be worth it.
I plan to eventually release a “complete play” video of this game on YouTube, but for now, you can watch this segment right here:
The Legend of Zelda: Isle of the Winds (Segment 7) w/ Allahweh
I had been meaning to take part in some kind of charity event for a long while, but so far I had missed a bunch of opportunities. In fact, I had wanted to participate in the main Extra Life charity weekend (November 2), but missed it too. Thankfully, though, I discovered that you could raise money for Extra Life whenever you wanted, so I decided to just pick a weekend and go for it!
So, on December 13, 2013 starting at 7:15PM Pacific (10:15PM Eastern), I will be doing a live-streaming marathon (game or games are yet to be determined) in order to raise $100 for the local Blair E. Batson hospital. For a total of $100 or less, I will do at least five solid hours of gaming, however, for every $20 over my modest $100 goal, I will play at least one additional hour – potentially indefinitely! Of course, breaks may need to be taken here and there, but you get the idea!
You can actually start donating now, and that gives me a little less than one month to raise money. I really hope you can find it in your hearts to donate a little money to the charity. Plus, if I raise way more than $100 with enough notice before the actual event, I may let you guys decide exactly what I end up playing!
So, direct yourselves to this link here, support the hospital, and advertise it to your friends and networks!
This episode, which was recorded on November 15, 2013, sees Jeremy Stratton (@StratXGaming) back on the show to continue discussing affiliation, what we think is important in regards to networking and affiliation, discuss some of our less-palatable stories regarding affiliating or working with other networks, and then we get off on a tangent that leads to a discussion about “EverQuest Next” and “EverQuest Next: Landmark.”

This episode was live-streamed on the evening of November 12-13, 2013 and is the last episode of Series 1 (#1-19) of ‘The Retro Play Show!’
This episode is a full playthrough (though not much Chaos Emerald gathering!) of “Sonic 3 & Knuckles” (combining both games), both of which were released back in 1994 for the Sega Genesis. This coverage was specifically requested by my friend Adnan Ahmed, who wanted some fun nostalgia for his 25th birthday, and he joins me during the first half of the video (the “Sonic 3″ portion) to casually chat about this game and other retro memories of his. Unfortunately, his network connection was less than ideal, so the chat drops a couple times, but we persevered!

Every time United Kingdom native Alan Bradford puts up information on a relatively-unknown title for the Philips CD-i, I cannot resist checking out what all he has to show and talk about. Alan has put a lot of work in his Facebook group called The Philips CD-i Zone and it shows every time he posts something like this.
Alan’s latest “review” is of a special disc from 1993 called “Follow Your Dreams,” which essentially is a music CD with a special track that can be read by a CD-i player to play a little outdoors adventure game. The disc seems to have been produced by Marlboro, back in a time when a cigarette company promoting itself and sponsoring sporting events and the like was totally cool.
So, head on over to CD-i Zone to check out this latest review!
In this episode, recorded on November 7, 2013, Aristeia and I discuss what we think a proper review or preview article should consist of. Topics under consideration include demonstrating what the graphics and audio are actually like, talking about technical details, being honest about how much of the game was actually played (as well as prior experience with the genre itself), and we debate whether scores actually mean much at all.
