Brian Parker of RetroZone has released a revised version of his NWC reproduction cartridge so that it now features a dipswicth like the original game. This means that the time now can be changed just like the original.

The game is flying off the shelf as faster than you can say NWC, I managed to buy one from the first batch and the second batch is nearly gone too, 4 left at the time of writing. However if you want to own an NWC cartridge but, like me, never will be able to afford an original one then this definately is your best option...

And no this isn't a paid advertisement but I'd like to see some support for the great work Brian does for us NES fans and I would hate to see him stop because of too little interest. Recently he has also released Sara Parker's Pool Challenge (Aka. Robert Byrne's Pool Challenge/CueStick) and a few homebrewn games including his own creation - Glider.

So why not visit RetroZone at www.retrousb.com

Please note that Airball is not completely sold out, there's roughly 70 boxes left to be assembled, but the clear cartridge cases used for the game is currently out of stock, more is on the way though.

Time for another NES clone added to the pirate section. A lot of the old reviews are missing because they need to be completely redone. But here is a brand new clone that hasn't been on the website earlier... so enjoy and maybe even click here.

For some strange reason the "homebrew" page took forever to load even though it worked great when testing on my internal webserver. But I've changed the XSL and PHP settings a little so that the page now loads a little faster... still not good enough though :-/

Well I decided to do a quick Glider spotlight and you can check it out here. Even though I have a problem with the graphics scheme chosen for this game I still recommend picking up a copy - it's quite well made.

Well this section wasn't supposed to go live until I had every NES rom floating around listed. But while there hasn't been many options to run NES code on a real NES prior to the release of the NES PowerPak, people have still been busy producing small bits and pieces of NES code.

The new page right now lists all the useful NES programs, games and demos, heck I've even tested every single of them using a PowerPak to see if the code actually works on a real NES.

Anyway click here to check out the new homebrew section. More stuff will be added later.

Jump the wagon, a new online auction site has opened recently and it's devoted 100% to video games. Why choose this one over ebay though you might ask? well there's no insertion fee for sellers! if that's not reason enough to try your luck on chasethechuckwagon.com then I don't know what is.

But either way, check out chasethechuckwagon.com as it has some pretty sweet NES stuff listed right now at very reasonable prices.

Finally I have another game spotlight ready, I promise it won't be months before the next one is ready. Anyway this time I've picked a game that you either love or really hate. Solar Jetman was at first a game I really hated but over time it has become one of my favourites mainly because of the difficulty level - this one is a true challenge!

So check out the spotlight and head off to your local secondhand shop or fleamarket to find a copy of the game and check it out :-)

Click here to read the spotlight.

Dr. Neo of the NeoFlash team has released a photo of their NeoMyth FC test setup as well as a picture of what the NeoMyth NES is supposed to look like.

So the NeoMyth will be released in both a Famicom (60pin) and NES (72pin) version and the realtime save feature is still on the agenda, something that surely will be a popular feature as well as the NES version of course will be working on both European and US NES consoles.

On a side note Dr. Neo also announced that the N64 NeoMyth project (finally) has reached a near complete state, something I personally have been waiting for for years. But as if that wasn't enough, also the NeoMyth SNES is almost ready for release.

Release dates are still somewhat unclear but the NeoMyth FC/NES should be available around August 2008. For more information please visit www.neoflash.com.
