Resident Evil 2 Remake!!!!!!!!

I think it's called E3. Might be something worth checking out if you have time.

[Hacker gets Super NES games running on unmodified NES]

At this point, we're used to modern computers being able to perform near-perfect emulation of older gaming hardware via software trickery. The latest project from Tom "Tom7" Murphy, though, seems poised to coin its own definition for "reverse emulation" by running a playable Super NES game on actual unmodified NES hardware.

Murphy breaks down this wizardry in a pair of detailed videos laying out his tinkering process. Though the NES hardware itself is untouched, the cartridge running this reverse emulation is a heavily customized circuit board (ordered from China for about $10), with a compact, multi-core Raspberry Pi 3 attached to handle the actual Super NES emulation.

Not very practical but I love reading about this types of projects. Some of these games he emulates are really trippy.

Retro Gaming and Hardware / Atari VCS Pre-sell crashes Indiegogo

[Atari's Retro Console Launches Pre-Orders, Quickly Crashes Indiegogo]

We finally have more details on what this thing can do and apparently more people are hyped up about it than we expected. On Wednesday afternoon, Indiegogo was struggling to keep up with the influx of traffic...

...The VCS runs on the Ubuntu OS (Linux), includes a Radeon R7 processor, a 32 GB hard drive, 4 GB of DDR4 RAM, and expandable storage. It connects to the internet and will support streaming video and online multiplayer games. Voice control is handled by four front-facing mics and two new controllers (one retro, one modern) connect via Bluetooth.

This piece of kit is starting to sound really nice. I can see why there is such a high demand for it. This might be more flexible to mod than an NES or SNES Classic.

Now this is something I can get behind. SNK is making a mini version of the Neo Geo MVS arcade cabinet called the Neo Geo Mini and comes with 40 preloaded games.

No date or price announced yet but this thing is looking mighty sweet.  ;D

I saw Kinikko likes to knit and that's pretty cool. I personally really enjoy music, so I tend to collect headphones. I have quite a few in my collection and always take time to listen to them. I just wish it wasn't so expensive, lol. But I really love to nerd out on audio. And if there's one thing that I like to collect more than games, it's music.

Do any of you have hobbies that are just as big, or bigger, than your gaming hobby?

General Discussion / Favorite Video Game Soundtracks

I think every board needs to have a topic like this. I've been listening a lot to the Katamari Damacy OST (always brings a smile to my face, it's so weird!) and the Castlevania: Symphony of the Night OST. The SotN soundtrack is just so amazing, it's one of those soundtracks where I hear a song and pretty much know exactly what level I'm in.

General Discussion / Cobra Kai - Youtube Red Show

If you're a fan of the '80's Karate Kid trilogy, you'll absolutely love this show. Wow, this show is an absolute pleasure to watch. What I love about it is that it doesn't try to be like those older karate kid films. It's a well done continuation of the main characters and where they are now in life. I highly, highly recommend this show.

caveat - you do need a Youtube Red subscription to watch beyond episode 2. However, you can sign up for a free 7 day trial and binge it. Or if you have a Google Music subscription you get Youtube Red included.

Anybody getting one or even heard of this? This does not use software emulation like most clones and it isn't NOS of original hardware in a new chassis. It uses a special chip that can be tuned to run like the chips that were used back in the original system. So you can use your carts with it and play them on an HDTV with accuracy.

Anyone watch this yet? Saw it opening weekend and thought it was a really solid movie with very few flaws. Not sure if it matches the hype but it gets close. Michael B. Jordan really drives this movie to greatness.

I seriously hope there's a sequel.

Anybody else familiar with this series? It's a sub-series of Digital Foundry (who have some great technical videos.) What's great is that it's not just a nostalgia video, it actually goes back and dissects the technological techniques used to make these older games. I love it and I recommend any other retro fans check it out.

The latest episode is on Panzer Dragoon for the Sega Saturn.
