It was a big week for homebrews over at RetroUSB
. On October 23rd, they released their annual 8Bit Xmas cart for 2014, as well as KHAN Games eagerly awaited port of Larry for the NES, abbreviatingly titled Larry and the Long Look for a Luscious Lover.
With 8Bit Xmas 2014
, you're getting a lot of features that haven't been seen in a long time. If you have a working ROB, you can have him dance to holiday music while you play. If it's a family event, as usual you can play 2 on 2 with the four score. Or for the first time ever, with two Power Pads you can have a 6 person multiplayer game of 3 on 3!
And then with Larry LLFLL
, Larry is back in all his pixelated glory with you to guide him in a quest for love. This game is equipped with flash memory, so you'll never lose your saved game! See how many NA references you can find as you play. But it comes with a warning: this game is intended for adult audiences only!
To top if all off, Bunny gave us some dancing ROBs to get you into the holiday mood way too early!
If you're near the Portland area, this is obviously where you should be this weekend. For those of us who couldn't make the trip, though, here is video coverage of last year to help us cope.
Interviews include talking with Rich from ThisOldGame.com about some Arcade games he made from scratch, DJ Switch about what it's like to provide the tunes to an entire convention, and a followup interview with Marc Ericksen on whether or not Mega Man's foot is broken. Highlights include the unveiling of the HDMI NES prototype from RetroUSB.com, a heated game competition at the Saturday Morning booth, and a group shot of all the NA'ers in attendence.
