BTB, delivering the best content in such style yet again. My hat is at a very jaunty angle after watching that video, loved it.
Thanks. I think we got something cool over here, not only is it showcasing great Atari games and hardware, but we're sharing the experience with others. This was great because they are big Nintendo guys.

I like to call a spade a spade, as you well know
And yes, it's true there are more YT channels/shots/whatever term is that cover things like 7800 DK being played, i'm literally spoilt for choice, but..
It's the very way in which YOU approach it, that draws me to your 7800 channel each and every time.
Who better to 'judge' the conversion on it's own merits than Nintendo guys?
These pair were like yourself, so down to earth, wicked sense of humour, not afraid to laugh at themselves, engage in a great bit of banter..
It all creates such a friendly and welcoming atmosphere.
Far too many people on YT want to use the medium to be a personal stage or soapbox, a means of self promotion, the games/hardware they look at either simply used as another means of having spotlight shone on them or why it's on Atari, of course it's the best version ever!!! and there will be no mention of what the Atari version is missing and why.
I see BTB as the YT seal of quality, up there with NSG, Ataricreep, Willie, Shinto podcasts etc.
Just promise me you guys will keep doing what your doing in 2017

Some of the licenses (Donkey Kong) were attained from Coleco after they got out of the video game business and filed for Chapter 11 in 1988 as well. That's why there's the initial Coleco Donkey Kong release for Atari 2600, and the 1988 reissue of 2600 Donkey Kong from Atari.

Yes, that is the story of the 2600-versions. But the 7800-titles weren't produced by Coleco. They were made by Atari Corporation. I think, that's another
right yea they were, after Atari got the home console rights for Donkey Kong through Coleco
