Zenith may not have been the biggest name in computers in the 80’s, but the Z-171 is a pretty awesome machine. One of the first portable battery-powered PCs, as well as one of the first to utilize a backlit LCD display!

Arcade ports in the 80’s were very much hit and miss, often sacrificing extra graphics, sound, and controls. But rotary joysticks or not, Ikari Warriors for the PC is one manly good time.

Oh and yes, I am now a part of Retroware TV! Thanks to Pat, John, and the others there who have been in touch with me to make this happen. Check out their site for my retro-focused reviews in the future, as well as plenty of other fantastic retro gaming content!

Just to make one thing clear: videos are still going to be in the same places, just more places. Basically, it’s like how things are now, except with RWTV involved. Videos still go to Blip (and now RWTV) first, and then YouTube and everything soon after. Hooray for more exposure and such!
