Pass Or Play with Russ Lyman

I recently had the opportunity to do a crossover project with Russ Lyman. Russ has a great channel on YouTube where he talks about DIY (Do it yourself) projects, as well as videos on video games new, and old. Along with reviews, trips to conventions, and other events,  as well as other pop culture stuff. Be sure to check him out! Anyway, I was fortunate enough to do a guest spot on his Pass Or Play series where I talked about Beach-Head II: The Dictator Strikes Back for the Commodore 64! Previously I did a long form review here on the blog, but it was fun to be able to work with Russ, and get out a condensed version. I hope you enjoy it, and I hope you’ll check out Russ Lyman’s other work!

  1. Whoa, the game was old enough to have been on a floppy disk (back when that adjective was an apt one). Anyway, it was cool that you got to do this collaboration! Looks like you had a lot of fun with it.

    1. It was a lot of fun! And that’s my childhood copy of the game in the video. It was also one of the earliest games to incorporate sound samples, which was mind blowing at the time. Hearing the Allies scream “MEDIC!” when shot, or hearing the Dictator taunt the hero with “YOU CAN’T HURT ME!” is something that holds up to this day. Thanks for checking it out! And I hope you’ll hit up Russ’ channel. He does good work.
