so if you weren’t already aware theAmazon fire stick is actually very capable little device in fact the 4kversion is actually more powerful than a lot of the Raspberry Pi options outthere and quite frankly it’s more affordable in most cases even though the4k version retails around $50 Amazon is pretty frequent about putting thesedevices on sales to help promote their services like Amazon Prime I think Ipaid $25 around Black Friday for my 4k version and the 1080p versions retailaround $35 and again those go on sale frequently as well so these are veryaffordable very nice powerful little devices that you can play retro games onbut today I’m going to be talking about a three part series that I’m redoingshowing you how to play your own games and install your own games on the Amazonfire stick but for today’s video we’re going to focus primarily on the beginnerlevel introduction for the fire stick and the at games legend ultimate arcadecabinet now for the beginners out there I know there’s a lot of you that maybearen’t technically proficient and adding your own roms and doing that type ofthing and maybe it’s a little you know intimidating to do that type of thing orperhaps you

top free games so if you absolutely don’t want to payfor any of these games there’s some awesome great gaming options that arefree of charged but I’ll let you explore this on your own and I’m going to backout a little bit and I’m going to show you some games just to give you a littleexample of what you can get out here just from the stock built-in app storeon the fire stick that I’ve already pre downloaded onto my fire stick to showyou just you know what we got to work with I’m gonna go back go to my homescreen and then we’ll try asphalt 8 airborne this is a very San FranciscoRush ish kind of racing game a lot of arcade action hey buttons gonna read my acceleratorjoysticks gonna move the trackball and the spinners do not work so keep that inmind but controlling this with the joystick is very simple even though thisis a terrible car and handles poorly it’s still fun little game but object ofthe game obviously you know go fast turn right and left not like NASCAR but smashother drivers see if I can actually catch up to this guy and I’m gonna hitthat guardrail because I don’t use brake okay look at that first place let me seeif I can crash into him get some arcade style action going boom and that’s whatwe’re looking for got another guy see if I can take himout catch up with in and there he goes very similar to like you know burnoutlegends or that type of thing but very fun little arcade game how theyrecommend this little this little racer free of charge nice little ramp here didI make it oh yeah I made it so well back out we’ll try something elseanother free game that I downloaded it is the pinball arcade everybody lovespinball virtual pinball is on everybody’s mind right now and thepinball arcade is here and the great thing about pinball arcade is it comeswith some free tables right out of the gate you also have access to some tablepacks and you can buy some to the store like that if you want to play more butright now we’re going to start with Last Action Hero I want to select that andjust kind of show you what you’re getting there now the control mapping onthis one’s a little weird but it’s very playable so my menu button is going tobe my start or my plunger and then my start and my rewind button for playerone over here are going to be my left and right flippers so I’m gonna hit menuto start it off and I can change my angle of view byhitting the Z button go through different viewpoints fire the plungerand I was not paying efficient try again now doing so hot keep keep staring atthe digital DMD up there trying to figure out what’s going on on thatinstead of staring at the bowl not the most exciting table ever butit’s still I mean how how do you deny playing something that’s cheesy 90sArnold Schwarzenegger I mean that’s just my childhood a nutshell but oh my goshhere I was calling the table boring and I got multi-ball coming right at me alright and that went straight down thechute and the multi ball did not last long let’s go ahead and check out somethingelse so the next game we’re gonna play that is free is the skateboard Party 2game very similar to the Tony Hawk franchise so if you ever played any ofthose games this will be very familiar to Joystiq is going to maneuver aroundand you’re going to be using your buttons to do various commands and I’llwalk you through those just go to free skate real quick and of course againwith a free game they’ve got paid upgrades they start you with the mostridiculous looking character because you’re like I don’t want this guy I wantsomebody else and then you realize that everybody else is pay to play or youknow pay play longer to be able to upgrade so we’re just going to startwith this guy because he’s free it old Fred I’m gonna hit motor city park so forward on the joystick moves forwardleft right very normal as you can tell very similar to Tony Hawk a scream Iollie button I believe yeah B is my flip trickssee if I remember what am i okay my Y button is gonna be my grabs and I’mtrying to member which one is for grinds it is my Z button as I fall on my facebut Tony Alex franchise was one of the one of the biggest parts of my childhoodgrowing up I’ve been a skateboarder for over 20 years so I absolutely loveskateboarding and skateboarding video games and I enjoy playing this eventhough it’s on arcade I enjoy the challenge of having unique controlschemes for games like this but again free game fun little skateboardingadventure game and it runs really smoothly on here if I can do any tricks and a smash but there you have it thatis the beginner level tutorial on how you can access the Amazon fire games andput them on your fire stick download them very simple process all you have todo is go to the menu find the game you want to play select it download it onceit downloads go in there and you’re ready to go all the games are a littlebit different as far as the control scheme so you kind of have to figurethings out but I have yet to find a game that does not play on the control stickvia the Bluetooth connection so hopefully that helps the beginners outthere and like I said I will be making a second video for the intermediate levelthat’ll show you how to play even more advanced arcade games and more gamesthat you’re probably familiar with and it’s a little a little more complicatedso that’s why I guess the intermediate ranking but that video will be comingout this weekend and then lastly I will be doing the advanced one where I’llshow you how to install retroarch onto the fire stick that way you canload up your own roms if you’re comfortable doing that and then playthem via the fire stick so I hope you enjoyed the video if it was helpful makesure you hit that like button share this video with your friends also if you’renew to this channel
