Still working, but here’s another long video that you’ll want to watch for purely non-ironic reasons. It’s the laserdisc version of Capcom Game Syndrome, a 1989 release that’s basically a video walkthrough of Ghouls ‘n Ghosts, Strider and Forgotten Worlds.
This is actually the first time I’ve seen the arcade version of Strider all the way through to the end. I played the Genesis port extensively and it’s kind of fun to play spot-the-difference between the two titles. I have to say that outside of the pauses in between scenes, Sega did a pretty tremendous job fitting this game into 8 megabits. I do miss the multilingual voiced cutscenes, though.
