Here's a (relatively) short video of the cancelled game "Hero", by Splash Damage. I can't find any traces of this game on the internet, but it is very interesting. It is multiplayer only so there is not really much to it.

A long time ago, I was in a summer program that went on for a few weeks. I enjoyed it, and one of the years, I met a leader who enjoyed Metal Slug. Fortunately, that same year, i was in the group that got to go to an arcade. He and I played some co-op Metal Slug, and let me tell you, it was really fun. Once we were done, I asked him what his favorite and least favorite were, and he said that 3 was his favorite and 4 was his least favorite. I don't remember why, but I eventually met a different person on Discord who also loved Metal Slug and said the same games were her favorite and least favorite.

This is part of the reason why I touched on MS3 last year as well, was my friend telling me to talk about it. I didn't think it was a half-bad idea, and I enjoyed playing through it, aside from the final level dragging on forever.

So, with having had played Metal Slug 4, what are my opinions on it?

I thought it was alright, having had played through...

Looking for interest in possible UK OG meetup..

Once Covid's been kicked down......

With the amount of lockdowns in the UK and worldwide we all need something to look forward too. Which is why I'm asking for interest in doing a possible OG meetup sometime late in 2020 or 2021. This is all depending on how fast a cure is found.

I'm thinking some sort of meetup with music, food, booze (for over 18's..) and screens hooked up with games to play etc. And possibly (if we can get consent from developers) to show of some developer builds and allow users to play.

The only issue here is I'm out in the middle of nowhere which is why I've made a poll for locations in the UK that users would be interested in. All will have train/bus links.

Depending on the location and amounts I'll let users know. It may have a small entry fee but this is only so we know and I'll list venue locations on the two top voted areas.

Numbers likely would be limited to around 100 users but depending on how many request, and depending on how much to rent we...

Would have been included with some Game Boy Color development kit to show off the different color capabilities of the GBC. I wish I could say there is more, but sadly this is the only piece of the GBC development kit I found in the files for Asteroids.

Review Knuckles Chaotix Review

This is an old review to fill up the empty space where I don't have anything to post. Please note that the writing may be more janky for that reason.

Chaotix (or Knuckles' Chaotix in the west) is a very unique Sonic game, but yet, I have a reason to not like it. Why, you might wonder, knowing that I enjoy sonic myself. There are two reasons, and I'll get to those when it comes time for me to explain the gameplay.

Graphically, this game looks AMAZING. It is beautiful for a 32X game, especially since most of them were either not very good games that were ported over from 16bit, games that just had no effort put into them, or Doom. Some games looked nice, like After Burner Complete or Space Harrier, but mostly games just didn't look that good. I mean, I've played darxide, and that's the worst game on the 32X, but maybe I'll get into that another day. Anyways, this game is ABSOLUTELY BEAUTIFUL, and if you were to look at it, you'd agree. The framerate is very smooth, and the sprites...
