Homebrew Chat / New MSX Homebrew - Endurance
« on: May 24, 2020, 19:19:10 PM »
Fabio Ritter has announced the release of his new racing game for the MSX. Endurance is a racing game heavily inspired by 1983 Activision’s Enduro for the Atari 2600, but with some nice additions that make it more interesting and fun to play.


Endurance offers two game modes. On the enhanced mode, other than the original race-against-time gameplay, your car can get damaged as it hits the other racers. You will be able to fix it if you manage to drive over the wrenches that will show up on the road. Using the same premise, you have a Nitro and Foglights powerups showing up on the road as well.

The game is now available for pre-order and the first units will start shipping in approximately 30 days and it is available in three different options:
  • Deluxe Edition – Comes in a box, cartridge bed, plastic cover, Konami-style case for the cartridge, cartridge featuring a premium board with golden contacts and large label
  • Standard Edition – Box, cartridge bed and cartridge case Patola brand
  • Digital Edition – Available for purchase now, but it will only be available for download after 30-60 days

All the interested can contact Fabio via endurancemsx[at]gmail[dot]com for further details.

In Hydra thieves are trying to steal the treasures from a museum, these artifacts contain secrets to a weapon and it is your job to stop them. The player is issued an experimental speedboat to navigate the rivers in order to retrieve the treasures from checkpoints. There are nine levels of rivers and oceans, while playing the game the player can collect money bags for extra cash and crystals for extra fuel. The obstacles are gun embankments, enemy crafts and other nuisances which will slow you down and you can loose your cargo which will float down stream that you will have to go and collect. At the end of each level the player then drops off the cargo and can then buy upgrades from a shop to improve the Hydra speedboat.

Retro News & Chat / The History of the NeoGeo
« on: May 17, 2020, 23:54:45 PM »
Wrestling With Gaming brings us the history of the NeoGeo.  To many gamers in the 90s, The Neo Geo AES was the ultimate home console. While many other consoles claimed to bring an arcade experience home, they did so by downgrading graphics, sound, and other compromises. The Neo Geo on the other hand, brought truly perfect Neo Geo MVS arcade games to the home with ZERO compromises. If you owned a Neo Geo AES console you got to play actual 1:1 arcade games at home. But this level of quality came at a steep cost with the console's Gold Bundle coming in at over $600 for just the console, controllers, and one game. Individual games were also extremely expensive, averaging $200 or more each. This is the story of how SNK brought its highly successful arcade games to the home with one of the most expensive consoles of all time and after becoming one of the biggest names in gaming in the 90s, lost everything and yet somehow rose from its ashes.
