I've added various stuff to the NES homebrew section, including the ROM City Rampage game (originally Grand Theftendo) that is available in the Wii and PC (Steam) versions of Retro City Rampage.

The ROM is not available for download here...

The N64 proto section has received a small update with various prototypes seen online. I have a larger update planned for later, but at least this is some new to look at :-)

The N64 demo (Not For Resale) cart section has received a minor update, removing carts that weren't actual demo releases, and I've added a scan of the Donkey Kong 64 NFR cart.

ED64PLUS REVIEW
February 10th, 2013 - 4:56 pm - Posted by Martin

Sorry for the lack of updates lately, but the past few weeks brought an experience I really wish would've stayed a nightmare and not a real life experience...

Well it turns out that today, one month ago, I began reviewing something called ED64plus - an N64 gadget out of china. I finally managed to complete the review today and if you're curious to know more about the ED64plus, then why not click below :-)

NEW FAMICOM FLASH CART - EVERDRIVE N8
February 6th, 2013 - 3:58 am - Posted by Martin

Krikzz, famous for the various retro gaming Everdrive flash (RAM) carts, has once again been developing a new product, this time around for the Famicom (NES) - called Everdrive N8.



Everdrive N8 supports Famicom and Twin Famicom systems as well as the NES, an adapter is required through. It's capable of running iNES and FDS ROM images, with automatic side flipping for FDS images. For the cheaters out there, GameGenie support is also available.

It automaticly saves to the microSD cart, meaning there's no need to push reset after a game has been played. Software (firmware/mappers) is upgradeable from microSD.
 
The Everdrive N8 uses a powerful Cyclone II FPGA as the heart of the system. It has 4mbit of memory for both PRG (program) and CHR (characters) which is more than enough for every NES/Famicom game out there. 
 
A pretty interesting device which I'll hopefully be able to review here sometime this year (no funds for a purchase right now) and hopefully an NES version will see the light of day soon.
 
Everdrive N8 can be ordered directly from RetroGate, Krikzz own shop, if you're in Europe. Americans would be better off ordering from Stone Age Gamer I believe, due to possible customs taxes if ordering from RetroGate.
 
The price tag is $109 for a standard model without USB port, only the bare PCB is available from RetroGate - no plastic casing is available sadly.
 
SUPERMAN 64 EARLY PROTO DUMP FUNDRAISER
February 4th, 2013 - 3:05 am - Posted by Martin

I recently acquired an early prototype of the legendary Superman 64 which is quite different from the released version. 

Right now there's a fundraiser out there to get it released, if you're interested why not chip in a few bugs.
