Chuck Yeager's Fighter Combat
was set to be released on the Nintendo Entertainment System and was shopped out to several major publishers, though none were ever attached formally to the game. In May of 2010, the only known prototype of this game came up for open auction on Ebay and BeaglePuss, a member on NintendoAge, won the auction for the then
record price for a NES prototype of roughly $2,700.
After nearly 4 years in the making, MrMark0673 and his brother BeaglePuss
have put together a public release of the game, complete with cart, box, and manual, using all brand-new parts.
The ROM has been ever so slightly modified to remove some minor graphics glitching in the intro. Once the public release sells out, they will be releasing the ORIGINAL UNALTERED ROM for FREE for everyone to download and enjoy!

I had the true pleasure of getting to hang out last night with the crew from the upcoming documentary, It's Dangerous To Go Alone... The Movie
). The gang -- Joe, Matt and Dylan -- drove all the way down from Baltimore, Maryland to Durham, NC (and drove all the way back that same night!) to hang out and get some interview footage with me regarding some aspects of the film I'm not allowed (yet) to disclose. I'm really excited to see this film once it's done, and the line-up of people they've interviewed is vast and solid. Hats off to you guys and good luck with getting it finished up!
Here are a few pics of the crew :)
