Here's this Dutch MSX-freak called Alex Koedooder aka Hydragon, he's prolly the pinnacle of craziness when it comes to being enthusiastic. Running a daily stream at Twitch, he must be. MSX is his passion and he is sharing it with the world.

Streaming live from his living room, Hydragon started playing games on his MSX hardware since June this year. Every day, continues madness. He has been playing more than a hundred games already, and still going strong. All of this is what he calls "a challenge". Goal of this challenge is (for now) play every cartridge game live on stream! Done on real hardware, naturally.

While this might seem crazy, wait to you see him in action. You know, LIVE on your screen. Then you realize what real crazy looks like. And we love it. They don't call it Twitch for nutt'n, eh.

Now, for this month, this challenge has been halted to make room for everyday, XMAS Music and XMAS demo streams. It is the one and only MSX XMAS Stream. With currently 489 followers you can't be lonely during these holidays. Mr Hydragon promised 24 more hours of MSX-mas when he hits 500 followers. Top that, Santa!

Very great, and nice!

This is an MSX promotion, keeps the scene alive, stimulate and draw attention to people who won't aware of this scene & beautiful (Z80) system. It is an manner to promote the MSX! Many people grew up with it, but may forget about it.

See this as an wake up call, alongside all other MSX promotions on MRC. More to come, MSX is still alive!

You go Alex / Hydragon Evil Wink

Exactly I even motivated people to go up their addict and undust their MSX again.
And especfially MSX in US is quite unknown and yet is a great audience that experiences great times on the stream!
It's about sharing a passion, and that's simply what I love to do.
