I'm just getting tired of seeing re-re-re-re-re-re-re-re-re-releases of games, that's all. Out of all the real Mario games, tell me one that didn't have innovation. Super Mario Brothers was one of the first classic platformers, (ignore lost levels for now), Super Mario 3 expanded upon it, Super Mar...

With that in mind, you think that an internet petition is going to encourage them to spend that kind of cash again?

Unless you've got $20,000,000 (conservative estimate) in cold, hard cash, there's no way Sega'd even think of making a new Shenmue game. The last two were money pits, and the new administration isn't in the mood for risks. An online petition won't do anything. Good luck anyway I suppose. I'd be more...

None of the mini-itx boards with embedded CPUs that are currently available would be able to run Chankast, so bear that in mind. The P4 ones might if you gave them a nice VGA card and a decent amount of RAM.

Well, as far as I'm aware there's no game servers still available for them, so not too well for online gaming. However if you want to develop on Dreamcast they're a lot faster than the serial cable for uploading code.

I just used a LCD and brought a old OHP from ebay (Over head projector) You know the one's your seen in school. Just grab a 15" LCD monitor and use that for the screen but you need 1 to be able to have the controller board moved so all the light can shine through the LCD I can vouch that this does ...

You're be implying that the 2 NES circuits have to interact with each other beyond the control input. They don't. Why use only one cartridge for two NES systems when you can use two? NES cartridges are cheap as hell, and anyway we're not talking a particularly practical project here. Even then the e...

(I'm going to assume you're talking about opening it up and sticking something inside, apologies if you're not) DO NOT go opening up a CRT TV. The current stored inside, even when not connected to mains, can and will kill you if you slip and touch a contact (which would be likely when you're messing...

the games were stored in large units with hundreds of game slots Please be more clear whether this is fact or guesswork. I personally think there was 1 n64 per room and and a pc which was the interface for the lodgenet system which dumped a rom o a flashcart to that room's n64 which then sent the v...

Interesting stuff (article here for those interested)... I'd be surprised if it was actually all that good at cooling, though.

Nintendo haven't made a press release with details about Revolution that I'm aware of. If you're going to claim such things, you do need to provide a link to prove it.

I guess we'll find out in a few days anyway, Revolution should be at E3.
