A Video Welcome
I bought a Playstation Vita upon release, and it can also serve as a camcorder, which can be very handy. I uploaded a video to Youtube just last night, which was a video of me playing a ZX Spectrum game called Thru' The Wall, which is a Breakout clone. I just made another video earlier, which features myself this time. It doubles as a video welcome, and as an introduction to the Oregon Trail game. Let me explain. The first game in the "1,001 Video Games to Play Before You Die" book is 'The Oregon Trail', listed as 1971. While the first known version was released in 1971, the earliest copy which can be accessed was released in 1975. This can be accessed via Windows, by using "Command Prompt" and the Teletype feature. I try to explain this in the video. I will upload a video of myself explaining how to use Teltype and how to play the 1975 version of the Oregon Trail as soon as I can. I had some technical malfunction with my Vita, but anyway, here is my video. Enjoy.
