Required gamer viewing: The history of M2’s Japanese retro-port empire
The story of one studio, dedicated to preserving Japan's best console, arcade games.
...
Produced by My Life In Gaming, a video channel known for a laser focus on retro gaming, the M2 Complete Works documentary (embedded below) is a sweeping, decades-long look at a game studio renowned among dedicated gaming fans.

Remember when there was all that drama about biased games journalism?

https://kotaku.com/top-streamers-said-t ... 1834898693
Top Twitch streamers can make $50,000 per hour streaming new video games, the Wall Street Journal said in a weekend report. Kotaku spoke with industry sources who confirmed the report, adding that $50,000 per hour wasn’t even the highest figure they’d seen.
