About

Certain footage in this video is included under the fair use exemption of U.S. Copyright Law. The un-censored version of the pilot, complete with gratuitous swearing, can be found here.

PortsCenter is a planned webseries that aims to look at interesting and unique ports of videogames in an informative and entertaining manner. Y'see, back before multi-format games were the norm, a game might come out on one or two systems (three, if we were lucky) and get ported to other systems much, much later, sometimes by a different team entirely.

Occasionally, a port will differ from its source material in some way. It might be a change for the better, or it could ruin the game forever. Who knows? Well, we do, obviously, because its these games that PortsCenter will be looking at.

Or at least, we hope that's what it'll be looking at. We have another twelve episodes planned out. We really want to make this show happen, and we hope you want to see it happen, too.

Thanks for giving our Kickstarter project a look.

Cheers,
- Team PortsCenter

PRAISE FOR PORTSCENTER

"All in all, Portscenter is fast-paced, informative – from both a technical and historical point of view – and has a fun sensibility that reminded me a lot of all those BBC history docs with Terry Jones. In short, the show doesn’t suck and I hope they get to make more." - Dino Andrade, voice actor ("World of Warcraft", "Batman: Arkham Asylum", "Brütal Legend")

"GamesWipe for people who know shit about games." - Oli Smith, writer of videogames and books ("Doctor Who: Evacuation Earth", "Doctor Who: Nuclear Time", "LittleBigPlanet Ultimate Official Handbook")

"...if the pilot episode is any indication then the series looks to be both entertaining and informative... if you like seeing fresh video game content on the web then this is a good endeavor to support." - SideQuesting.com

"we love it... a shameless rip off of [Charlie Brooker's ScreenWipe] but that's no bad thing." - CasuallyHardcore.com
