YouTube Time: Activision Anthology (PS2) – Beamrider (1983) – Nostalgic Notions

For my second Nostalgic Notions video, I made a valiant (yeah…”valiant,” haha) effort to save the Earth from a barrage of alien invaders in Beamrider. This scrolling shooter proved tricky for my old reflexes, but it was nonetheless interesting to take a look back at the beginnings of a genre that’s mostly gone out of fashion. I mean, what was the last modern scrolling shooter you played?

    That game looks incredibly hard! But I’m sure my husband would get a kick out of it!

      It’s certainly challenging! I can understand why it would had been popular among some players. I guess I’m not one of them. 🙂
