@bad09 It will be compatible with the proper mics, we use the PS3 wireless mics on the existing PS4 Singstar but the USB ones work too.

@Krychek I was very disappointed with After Burner III when I got it at launch, but I quite enjoy it now. It has some nice scaling and rotation on the plane when it switches to third person view.
There was an FM-Towns port too which was slightly better, but the Mega-CD version had amazing arrangements of some of the After Burner II tunes.
Not sure why they changed the name, Strike Fighter is more G-LOC than After Burner.

'I recently compared After Burner across Mega CD, 32X, and Saturn, and while the Saturn version clearly wins, the Mega CD version is superior to the 32X game.'

It wasn't on Mega-CD, After Burner III is a port of Strike Fighter. In any case, it's not a good port and After Burner Complete on 32X wipes the floor with it.

Thanks for the link! The other two I need are V-V/Grind Stormer and Snow Bros. Snow Bros is another Ł150+ and V-V is creeping up there now. USA Grind Stormer is cheaper but suffers reliability problems due to low quality PCBs.

What I would like to know is this; when the ability to stream One games to another Windows device arrives, will it allow me to stream a game to my tablet, while the other half watches TV on the main screen? I'm guessing not, so I'd have to stop using the HDMI passthrough and OneGuide if I wanted to play while she watches her shit soaps.

How Super 3D Noah's Ark came to be reprinted on SNES in 2014

JodSUMO

4 years ago

'You see, Wisdom Tree's then-parent company Color Dreams was the only company that found a legal method of circumventing Nintendo's SNES "lockout chip." This required Super 3D Noah's Ark to be manufactured in odd-looking carts that needed an official Nintendo game to be plugged in on top of them in order to run.'

Color Dreams 'found' the legal method in pre-1994 two-cart Universal Adapters which use the CIC on one cart to run the game on the other.

Neo Geo X review

JodSUMO

5 years ago

Another inaccurate NGX article. The fifteen games that are coming do not come in one volume, there are five volumes with three games each. The first contains Sengoku, Metal Slug 2 and Top Hunter. A system update will also be on the card, hopefully fixing the emulation issues and adding Memory Card support.

Ninja Master's isn't an apostrophe error, its full title, 'Ninja Master's Scrolls of the Supreme Ninja Arts' is truncated. :)

HTC 8X review

Had the 8X for a couple of months now as an upgrade to my old LG Optimus 7. No complaints here. Very slick OS on lovely hardware. I didn't notice the improvement over 7.5 so much until I turned on my old phone after a few weeks on WP8.
I was considering the Lumia 920, but everyone I know with a WP8 Lumia has had problems with the handset regularly refusing to come out of stand-by and requiring a hard reset to make it turn on again. The WP7.5 Lumias are fine though.

@Sid-Nice Don't worry Sid, the Wii U version is up to the standard of the other HD versions. I recall some previews expressing concern over the Wii U version, but those concerns were based on early code. It holds its own against PS360.
The ONM review ... they're as entitled to their opinion as anyone else, but I don't agree with it :)

It's actually 'Ninja Master's', the full title is 'Ninja Master's Scrolls of the Supreme Ninja Arts'. /pedant

Looking forward to this, will go nicely with my AES, NGCD and NGPC.

A SNES version does exist, the Supaboy. I don't think it's officially licensed but it plays real cartridges from all regions, and is a lot cheaper than NGX.

There are also several MD handhelds, but they're all crap in one way or another, the main problem is terrible audio.
