The lower part looks like cables. Upper part could be a switch or a key hole? Don't know.

I'm guessing this is supposed to be one of the traps as seen overhead..?

Anything with falling blocks (Tetris, Puyo Puyo, Dr. Mario, Puzzle Bobble and their many variants/clones)

Not even all of these are without violence...

Dr. Mario has you killing viruses with the pills, for example.

Also, Super Puzzle Fighter has your characters beating each other senseless whenever you bust gems.

I did recall seeing something about a Famicom modem in the past and a quick search quick search turned up this: Family Computer Network System

It doesn't appear to have been used for much, but that was at least released in some form... unlike: Teleplay Modem

I feel like the bigger, most important issue here is not that Windows had a flaw. It's that a government agency did the "wrong thing", which is what ultimately what led to this recent outbreak of ransomware (after its base code was stolen from said government agency). Had they done the "right thing" and reported the flaw they found, instead of sitting on and exploiting it... this flaw could have been corrected years ago.

But, by all means, keep arguing about which OS is best.

To me, it really depends on the game and the art style they chose. Typically, due to the low resolution, I think the games with simpler textures (from that era) tend to look better these days (especially if emulating at a higher resolution). Trying to cram too much detail into 320x240, 320x200, or similar resolution can lead to some really messy looking scenes, sometimes.

Low resolution suits 2D well since you typically have full control how your art will display and can craft it accordingly. In 3D, with your art being potentially viewable from any angle, scaling factor, and potential skewing or distortion... not so much.

I thought we had a thread here a while ago indicating that the mobile port of SoM was rubbish.  This will surely be derived from the same.

From the video, it looks like just the GB and SNES ROMs for SD1, 2, and 3.

So... another Virtual Console "collection", maybe? (They basically did this with Super Mario Bros. and Kirby in the past... so, not out of the realm of possibility).

I was gonna, but I decided not to, really I Wanna be the Guy the Movie the game is more fair than F-Zero X at least you don't have to literally fool the AI into letting you win, I made it halfway through IWBTG which is more than I can say for F-Zero.

I don't recall having too many issues with X. GX though... that was a different story.

Nevermind the fact that I would expect the Switch to carry on their Virtual Console service in some form.

One minor nitpick: "Ware Wolf" should be "Werewolf"... unless this something other than the classic horror creature, man/wolf hybrid lycanthrope. :beer:

You can also see it in action here, presented by the infamous Jonathan Branstetter.

Yep, that's exactly what I was thinking of. Just as janky-looking of a setup as I remembered.  :D

That reminds me that at one point they were working on an add-on that would allow the Turbo/PC Engine to interface with a PC, to provide a CD-ROM drive to said PC. As far as I recall, this was never released in any market, but it was interesting since it was not common at the time for a PC to have a CD-ROM drive yet.

I remember seeing images in an old gaming mag, long ago. (Maybe, EGM)?

Even before Earthbound, the Nintendo Power magazine had the character Nester in its comics... so... that possibly influenced some people to say "Ness".

It's fairly common for people to pronounce acronyms (where possible). I mean, do you pronounce NASA, spell it out, or say the mouthful of the actual full name? How about PETA? SWAT?

I really don't follow getting upset by this.  :huh:

Something more like this maybe..?

"This fan-made, free hack is not affiliated with nor endorsed by Nintendo."

The Android remake of Final Fantasy Adventure was pretty decent. Way more faithful to the original than the Sword of Mana "remake".

On the whole NES / SNES and what people called it thread.

My $0.02:

My friends and I would generally alternate, as far as I recall. Like, we would "play Nintendo", but when talking about the system itself, it was "The Ness".

As for the SNES, I seem to recall it was usually "Super Ness" (which then solidified calling the NES "Ness" even more). Maybe the occasional "Sness" here and there, but that was way less used in my circle.


I turned 40 this year... so not a "millennial" thing as some suggested.

I knew little to nothing of the Luke Cage character going in.

My wife and I both really enjoyed it. Myself, probably more so than Jessica Jones.


I will say for Daredevil, the one fight scene in the last season where it's like one continuous shot down the stairwell... was pretty fantastic. :thumbsup:

Blaster Master 2.

The 1st one is one of my favorite NES games. I even somewhat enjoyed the PS1 and the GBC ones. Never really played much of the WiiWare one, so I can't comment there... but, the Genesis one.. UGH.

For one, it's pretty sad/hilarious that the 8-bit NES soundtrack mops the floor with the 16-bit Genesis one.

I recall the MM2 GB music was discussed around here before.

Instead of muting the music altogether, dropping it around an octave made a huge difference (based on some examples floating around on YouTube). I'm not sure how feasible this is for an actual hack, but the music did sound much better / closer to probably what was originally intended... almost like this was some bug/issue that was never resolved before release.

Yeah, I was also questioning this "I've never seen/heard it, but I already know that I hate it" mentality. Can we at least wait to see how it goes before hopping on the QQ-Train? ::)
