Here's the Story of RoboCop, the video game, based in the 1987 blockbuster movie. It went on becoming the most successful title from Ocean Software.

'You only get one life' - this must be the most realistic version then. :)

I remember the Ariston advert AND music...I had no idea the music was from a computer game.

The same C64 loading music was used in other ocean games too.

Nice video thanks.  We had the Spectrum version here too and when I saw the Ariston advert I immediately recognised the music and was shocked that they were using computer game music in a TV advert.

Two Portuguese in one thread.  Brilliant,  can you clear this up for me guys?  Why does spoken Portuguese sound Slavic in its pronunciation compared to other Latin languages?

My wife is Argentinan and the way they pronounce Spanish has a similar sound compared to other Spanish speakers too.

Not sure why... but is it hard to understand?
Thanks for watching and for your comment! ;)

No not hard to understand at all.  I just find it interesting how Portuguese is pronounced.

Good video,  thanks.

I find it odd that after having heard catalan I find it more closer to how we sound then actual Castilian, regarding Slavic I didn't even knew... got to check it out! :)

I see, you're talking regarding Portuguese English pronunciation. I've found an interesting link on the subject.

It's the general sound structure of the language... In both Portuguese and Russian there is a strong tonic accent with stressed vowel sounds having open and closed quality and the vowels in other syllables are quite reduced into different types of schwas, /%&$#?@!%&$#?@!%&$#?@!601;/ and /%&$#?@!%&$#?@!%&$#?@!592;/, or else even clipped off. In addition there are many soft consonants that are the same in both languages: for example, %&$#?@!%&$#?@!%&$#?@!643; %&$#?@!%&$#?@!%&$#?@!679; %&$#?@!%&$#?@!%&$#?@!658; %&$#?@!%&$#?@!%&$#?@!597; z v. Palatalized consonants are noticeably quite frequent. Actually the two languages are remarkably similar in sound. It's not surprising that speakers might have similar accents in English.

The sounds of Spanish are quite different: 5 mid-closed vowels with the same quality in each syllable. It's a syllable timed language with no syllable reduction giving it a staccato rhythm. Palatalized consonants are completely absent but weakened approximants like %&$#?@!%&$#?@!%&$#?@!946; ð %&$#?@!%&$#?@!%&$#?@!611; abound. Spanish actually mirrors modern Greek quite well, but sounds totally different than Portuguese.
