I'm not sure if it's just here in Denmark, but it seems that a lot of demo units have received new demo carts, being LEGO City Undercover.

It's not the full game, but a short demo with shortened cut scenes.

MEGAMAN 25TH ANNIVERSARY CUSTOM NES DECK
October 23rd, 2013 - 1:39 pm - Posted by Martin

Ryan Fitzpatrick, aka Platinumfungi, mailed me about a project of his and I have to be honest and say that my jaw dropped when I saw the pictures.

The artwork was done by Platinumfungi himself while CustomNESGuy did the paintjob on this custom NES which celebrates Mega Man's 25th anniversary.

If you think your fans would enjoy it, it would mean a lot to me if you could share it with them, thank you!

Done! I of course HAD to share this incredible work and if you'd like to see more pictures of the NES, then why not check out the photo gallery below

WHAT! WAIT, THE PAGE HAS CHANGED
October 14th, 2013 - 12:58 pm - Posted by Martin
Yeah it was time for an upgrade of the site, the script used for future updates is well under way, yesterdays update was made with that very script and I think it works quite well.
 
The new main page is now online. I had originally planned a new years launch along with some other changes, but I'd like to know what you think, so I can't wait! :-)
 
I know it's not a major overhaul, but there's still a lot of changes behind the scene... simplified PHP, new XML junk and more of thatboring stuff.
 
The most noticeable change probably is that the pages are now wider than earlier, which makes room for more info on pages like the N64 release list.
 
Anyway, let me know what you think and sorry about the ads, but that's what pays the bills. The ads makes around $100 per year, no that's not a lot, but just about enough to pay for the current hosting.

NES HOMEBREW IN THE WORKS: NIGHTTIME BASTARDS
October 8th, 2013 - 12:43 pm - Posted by Martin

A new and original NES game is in the works by One Bit Games, Nighttime Bastards.

Nighttime Bastards is the story of a heros fight for the presence of ligh in the nightmare world, Wakenes. The world is divided into nine section and in each of those you have to find the light while defeating the evil bastards. For some reason the game graphics reminds me of Spiritual Warfare by Wisdom Tree, but I'm sure this game has a more horrifying feel to it.

A cartridge version will be available in extremely limited quantities, a mere 10 pcs, so get ready to hit that preorder button!
