Konami have a lot of dormant stuff from the 80s and early 90s arcade scene, as do Namco. But none of that is really worth working up into something over just doing new IP really.

Very true.

In other news Cuphead is out on Mac (via Steam), and is on special this week! As a non-Xbone customer, this is a much cheaper option for me.

There’s a remaster of Gods coming out fairly soon, with very little fanfare. Looks like it’s of the ‘new visuals sitting on original game engine’ variety, so expect something very tough and a little bit clunky, but still pretty fun.

Sweet.

One of the best Mega Drive box artworks.

The colour palette and the way it looked was cool too I thought.

Shame it played like a pig.

Didn't really have to preorder... but I did anyway! :D Kinda like having a physical version when I can, very old fashioned.

In separate what-could-possibly-go-wrong showbiz news: "Monster Hunter" and "Mega Man" will be adapted into live-action movies in Hollywood!

Boy oh boy, can't wait! :roll:

Monster Hunter I knew about, and looks like trash already, but Mega Man is just another level of stupid. Pass.

Jordan Vogt-Roberts appears to be a genuine MGS fan and seems to treat the upcoming film like his ultimate passion project, which gives me hope, but I've mostly checked out of the Hollywood video game adaptation fanfare otherwise.

I'm a Flophouse Podcast fan, so maybe one of those two adaptations make the cut...

I can here the trailer voice over now:

"He was just a man but next summer watch him become MEGA!"

Starring Zac Efron as Megaman and Sir Anthony Hopkins as Dr Light and Sir Patrick Stewart as Dr Wily.

Actually maybe I should become a casting agent...

I hope the letters individually come zooming into the screen - M... E... G... A...

Then they slide together, we zoom out, and MAN slides in from the other side!

Then a one-liner from Sir Patrick Stewart, cut to black with "Coming Soon"... and we're done!

Awesome, we have a casting agent and trailer... this movie makin' bitnez be easy!

Hopkins/Stewart should be available. After all the former did Transformers and the latter played the poo in the emoji movie.

Don't really know where else to stick this, but stumbled across this on Amazon when I was looking at the Megadrive collection for PS4.

https://www.amazon.co.uk/SEGA-Console-M ... e+classics

I just don't understand why Sega never made a big thing about this (or any of the others they seem to have done in the past)

After all the fuss over the NES and SNES minis, it's baffling why nobody got excited about the EXACT SAME THING from Sega. Plus it's got a ton more games, and actually looks to me like it may even play original carts, too (although I can't find anything to confirm this either way).

EDIT: It does play original carts. Also, it appears that some of the games are 'original' shovel ware, but still over 30 proper games. And for cheaper than Sonic 3 on cartridge would probably set you back now.
