Has a similar feel to Solomon's Key which is another favorite of mine. A video of the gameplay is availabl...

WTB: Altered Beast (System16B)

Hi everyone,

I'm looking for an Altered Beast PCB. Any region is fine but would prefer a US seller. Anything will do, though.

Thanks for looking!

I would give uTorrent a try for simplicity. Just read the Network FAQs, specifically sections #6-9 which should get you going.

T-Mobile should be rolling out HSPA 7.2Mbps by 2010 throughout the US. Luckily I live in an area that should be part of this upgrade so I may be able take advantage of this when I tether G1 to my laptop.

So far I get about 1Mbps when I tether on the current 3G network.

Not completely on topic but a little related. Is there a way to disable the user pics?

I looked in my profile settings but couldn't find anything.

The Neo Geo and Sega Mega Drive have compatible pinouts but the connectors are not the same. You can get the connector to fit but it will be forced. MKL posted a perfect example of the difference in the connector. Neo Geo/Mega Drive Connector You don't need any external adapters to get RGB out of a ...

How many come per box? If someone wouldn't mind selling some of their extras I would really just want the R-Type, Gradius, and Darius ships. :D

That DoDonpachi Black Label DVD is tempting as well...

And now there is this:

I don't remember my exact score but it was around 90X,XXX on Hardest mode and a little more than that on Normal. These were all cleared games. I've never reached 1MiL before but I was always curious as well. The high-score board looks like it only supports 6-digits but I could never get the extra po...
