English translation patch for "Jung Rhythm" (SEGA Saturn) is Out Now!









Quote
Derek Pascarella : I'm thrilled to announce the v1.0 release of our English translation patch for Altron Corporation's 1998 game "Jung Rhythm" on the SEGA Saturn!
Who's ready for a colorful, bizarre, 32-bit song-and-dance adventure?
So, what's "Jung Rhythm" all about? I'm so glad you asked!
The game puts players in the shoes of Vanilla Essence, a young girl obsessed with the Earth-loving, eco-conscious rockstar, Chorking.
Similar to the well-known "PaRappa the Rapper" on PlayStation, our protagonist must sing and dance her way to victory!
But this game is hard! There's no two ways about it; timing your button presses to the beat can be a real challenge.
It gets easier with practice though, so don't give up! There's even a "TRAINING" mode accessible from the main menu to help ...

"Virtua Fighter 5 Ultimate Showdown action figure Jacky Bryant" will be released by Storm Collectibles



Quote
The eldest son of the Bryant family, Jacky is a racer and Sarah's older brother.
Those on the Indy racing circuit call him the Blue Flash.
He usually maintains his cool in every situation but could barely contain his anger against J6, the mysterious organization that was after his sister, Sarah.
He was goaded into entering the Fourth World Fighting Tournament, but then had to deal with the disappearance of Vanessa Lewis, who had been guarding his sister.
J6 was behind everything, and unless the organization itself was destroyed, there would be no end to Jacky and Sarah's troubles.
With this new realization, Jacky was determined to put an end to J6.

The Original Version Of Columns For The HP-UX Has Just Been Found









Quote
Most people will probably know of Columns from Sega's versions of the game — which have since been reissued across various compilations and mini consoles — but the title actually has an interesting history that predates those releases.
It was originally designed by Jay Geersten for the HP-UX operating system while working at Hewlett Packard in 1989, who later gave his source code to various other developers to produce additional versions for MS-DOS, Atari ST, Macintosh, and Windows 3.x.
In the past, Geersten's original HP-UX version of the game was considered to be lost media, but yesterday, the video game collector @TrevgauntletNeu announced that they had found the original title and had managed to get it working in MAME. They've since shared ...
