The Raspberry Pi Ally is BACK!

Hi all,

I know that this has been a long time coming but the Raspberry Pi Ally is back in production.

Hot off of the release of the Raspberry Pi 3 we have a sleuth of new tutorials currently in production that will teach you how to get the very best out of your device!
Check the little preview for the series update below:

Don't be afraid to give any suggestions or comments on the video itself.

Shenmue live playthrough

Hey guys,

It's been a while since I've updated the site. Yeah ok I've been neglecting it a fair bit recently but just letting you guys know what I'm up to.

For the past week or so I have been doing a playthrough of the original Shenmue on Sega Dreamcast in order to celebrate the announcement of the Shenmue 3 Kickstarter.

If you haven't already seen it check it out here:

Banjo Guy Ollie

Hey guys,

I recently got acquainted with Banjo Guy Ollie from YouTube through a mutual Arcade and Retro forum that we both frequent.

I implore you to check out his videos on his YouTube channel. If you're a fan of Smooth McGroove then just imagine Smooth McGroove... but with Banjos!

Embedded below is his entire playlist but please do subscribe to his channel.

MrVestek - over and out!

Epic Free Nintento Pickup

So my friend Roy sends me a message when I'm away sunning myself in Turkey saying;

"Hey MrVestek, a friend of mine has a couple of boxes of old gaming stuff. Not sure what's in them, he has them in storage though and is thinking of throwing them in the skip. I've managed to rescue a few, do you want me to save one for you?".

"Sure!" I say!

Of course I want that box, but how much is it going to cost I wonder? Fear not... it was completely free.

There was some treasure to be found inside folks! Check out the video below for more.

A New Start! (A Personal Letter from Me to You)

*Cleveland Brown Voice*

Hey Ya'll!

So I know that it's been a looooong time. There have been a number of events in my personal life (I realise that I say that a lot but please bear with me) that have caused me to neglect my little corner of cyberspace (who calls it that anymore?!) lately.

Firstly, my engagement has ended. That's about all I'm going to say publicly on the matter but I'm sure you can imagine what kind of personal issues that has lead to.

Ask.fm Widget

Hey guys,

If you look over to the right hand side of the site you'll see that I've placed an Ask.fm widget there now.

Answering random questions from anonymous people is kind of fun! Ask me any question that you like and no matter what it is I'll strive to answer it, depending on my mood I'll either do a video reply or a text based reply.

Enjoy!

Kaizoku Con 2014!

Hey guys,

It's certainly been a while and I know that I'm completely neglecting this website. So much so that I know for a fact that you guys visit it and then immediately click away! (Thank you Google Analytics).

Anyway so I went to Kaizoku Con 2014 a few weeks ago and all I can say is that it was absolutely awesome! The organisers have done a fantastic job, especially for a convention's first year run.

New Guest Editor! (And some news about the Youtube Channel)

Hi All!

It was recently pointed out to me that I really don't do much with this website at the moment and they're right, who am I to argue?

The problem is finding the time between work and other projects that I have on the go to find the drive and the time to carry on with such projects as mrvestek.com and the Raspberry Pi Ally series on YouTube.

Fear not though as I have some plans in the works for YouTube.
