I thought that it would be great to compile Pixel THING's Episodes 55 and 56 into one, now that 2016 E3 is just around the corner.
So, if you missed those, here you have my 1-hour-long E3 20 Year Retrospective with some of the greatest announcements ever on the history of video gaming!
Enjoy!

2016 celebrates the 25th birthday of the title that made me proud of owning an Amiga! Turrican 2 - The Final Fight, was the perfect home arcade experience that I was after with stunning graphics and an overwhelming soundtrack!
Let’s take a look!

Same here, broken thumbnail images.
Even copying the link and visiting it directly is broken. Maybe Google User Content links are only visible to the content owner?

That's what I'm wondering, but I believe his original thumbnails were hosted the same way. Maybe they made a change that was not retroactive?

Good thoughts; or maybe there's a "share with others" button, or you need an upgraded account...

Cool, looking forward to the new season!

I don't have any tips, just speculations, but always happy to report what I see ASAP if you want to do some testing in open forum or PMs.

Quick search turned up this commentary from 2015, not sure if it's useful to you or different from what you're already doing:

I used to be able to right click and "copy image url" and then use this url in other websites or discussion boards to share pictures on those sites. Now my site says that I "cannot use that file type". But I cannot figure out what file type Google Photos is using, since there is no .jpg or anything at the end of the url?

How can I continue to use my photos here on other sites or forums?

answer wrote:
It does look as if Google wishes its users to share images via link, however, you can still embed images and obtain a URI including the extension by going to Picasa Web Albums (https://picasaweb.google.com), find the image, and copy the link from Embed image field that appears on the right-hand panel (on desktop). I haven't come across any issues with images thus linked, at least so far.

16 years ago I stumbled, by accident, upon 1NSANE and simply couldn’t resist to its amazing cover! And the sentence “No Limits, No Rules, No Roads” instantly grabbed me!
By then, I was a huge fan of multiplayer over network, so playing 1NSANE with friends was a really fun thing to do!

The ZX Spectrum 128K was born in Spain, by the end of '85, and was in stores for just 6 months (more or less) being replaced by the (Amstrad) Sinclair ZX Spectrum 128K +2.
30 years have passed so quickly, so let's celebrate one of the most important machines in my gaming life!

Fastastic! The ZX is still one of the most mindblowing systems looking at retro computing. I didn't have one back in the day, but it's such an amazing achievement and affected the games industry so hugely.
