YouTube is a place that’s full of all types of videos for gamers. From Let’s Plays to Walkthroughs, every type of gaming video exists on YouTube, and frankly it can get a little repetitive. Meet Andrew, better known as Beta64. Beta64 is a truly unique channel in that it’s all about the development of video games. Basically, this channel tells you how games came to be, for example, how Banjo-Kazooie was originally a pirate RPG or how Diddy Kong Racing was at first a real-time strategy game. He researches what steps the game’s creators went through in order to make famous titles like Super Mario World. He also tries to figure out why these steps were taken throughout the game’s development. Beta64 is a must watch for anyone interested in the behind the scenes of video games. I had the privilege to speak with Beta64 about what goes into his channel and how it came to be.
If you have never seen an episode of The Twilight Zone, then you cannot call yourself a true fan of television. The Twilight Zone is always among the top of any credible list of the best television shows in history. Created by Rod Serling, The Twilight Zone has 156 self contained stories that stick with an audience in a way no other show does. Some Twilight Zone episodes are great because of how creepy they are, while some episodes are great because of the powerful moral lessons they teach. While I recommend you watch the whole show, here are the best episodes of The Twilight Zone. Luckily they are all available on Amazon Prime and Hulu.

Archie has been featured in comics, television shows and there are even rumors about a potential Archie Broadway show. While all of these credentials are impressive, the biggest sign of Archie's legitimacy as a comic book are the crossovers. Crossovers have been a staple for comic books since Marvel launched their first major crossover event, "The Secret Wars." Crossovers are common in comic books, they're a way for superheroes to interact with one another in a way that was previously seen as impossible. Just like any other truly great comic book, Archie has his fair share of crossovers. Here are my personal top 3 Archie crossovers that you have to check out.
