After an overwhelming victory in our poll, KOF '94 is now our game of the week! It's amazing that it took us this long to have a KOF game as the GotW really!
I don't need to say too much about this game - I think all of you know all about it! Come to our discussion thread to talk about it and reminisce about your memories of this classic game! We also have a video of the game in the thread with a new intro that Atomduck made for our Game of the Week feature - check it out!
I have changed the poll for next weeks GotW, so you can vote on what game we will cover. The voting will end on Saturday July the 5th and the winner will be featured next week. As Nightmare in the Dark and Twinklestar Sprites are such popular choices, I have kept just those two games as selections, so it will be interesting to see how the voting pans out over the course of the week!
Apparently Metal Slug 7 for the Nintendo DS is to be published by Ignition Entertainment in the US this Autumn (sorry I mean "Fall" for you US guys and gals! :). Quote from 1-Up:
"Truth be told, I have a pink DS and was embarrassed to play it in public. Now with Metal Slug 7 loaded, I have no qualms," quipped Ajay Chadha, president of Ignition Entertainment. "Needless to say, and in all seriousness, we are very excited to announce our partnership with SNK Playmore USA to give both core and casual gamers a whole new insight into the unique, all-action, eye-popping world that is Metal Slug."
I must admit that despite being a huge Slug fan, I don't hold much hope for this one I'm afraid, but I am still hoping to be pleasantly suprised as it may yet turn out to be great! I still wish they would give us a completely new Slug game for home consoles with all new sprites and gameplay additions, but I highly doubt it will ever happen.
Ruckage, one of our members, has made some excellent high resolution custom moves sheets for Neo Geo games. I have uploaded them into a gallery for people to download and print out. I highly recommend that you check them out!
So far there are moves sheets for both The Last Blade 2, and Garou: Mark of the Wolves. Many thanks to Ruckage for making them!
The King of Fighters '98 Ultimate Match for the PS2 is now finally out in Japan, and shipping from most retailers like Play-Asia. I will have the game pretty soon so I'll post a few impressions once I get it. I'm really looking foward to this one!
The Sunsoft Collection is also available now! It's a bit disappointing that it only includes two games (Waku Waku 7 and Galaxy Fight), so I'm not 100% sure it's worth it, but I should get to try it soon... again, I'll post my impressions of it once I do. I really hope WW7 includes the arranged soundtrack from the Sega Saturn version of the game as an option...
If you would like to vote on our next Game of the Week, you can do so by heading to our new webpoll. I've added a seperate poll to the one on the right which anyone (including non registered visitors) can vote on once a day. Whatever game is in the lead on Sunday will be our GotW for next week.
I'll try and put this poll in the sidebars next time, it's just I am having a bit of a problem in getting it to show up without making the rest of the page go fubar... for now, just go to the link below, until I fix it! :)
A new version of the software we use for the site is now out (or at least it's currently available in release candidate format right now), so we will be upgrading to this version of the software as soon as possible. I could very easily upgrade the site right now, but at the moment our themes will not work in the new version along with some of the mods we use for various things. Truth be told, due to new features that have been added we won't need a lot of those mods anymore, so the transfer should be fairly smooth and other additions will benefit all our visitors and make navigation/forum posting a better experience.
Can't really give an ETA on this but I am working on it, but it shouldn't be too long; I'm mainly waiting for a way to convert the old themes. Once I have this we should be good to go!
