Analogue Super NT - HDMI Super NES Clone

NintendoThe makers of the very expensive, $450 Analogue NT have announced the much-cheaper Super NT, a 1080p Super NES clone of seemingly high quality. Unlike the Super NES Classic you can't find that has signs in every store announcing its non-availability, this includes no games for the price. If you have a pile of cartridges, this may be a viable option.

The good news is that it's much cheaper than their NES - the Super NT is $189.99. The bad news, no controller is included - but there are legacy ports to use your old, working controllers. Provided you didn't smash them to bits in the late 1990s. Is it worth the asking price? Maybe, maybe not.

New Hitchhiker's Guide Radio Shows Coming to BBC

MusicVia Sci-Fi Bulletein: More Hitchhiker's Guide for 2018. Despite spending the last decade and change dead for tax purposes, Douglas Adams managed to appear briefly in a series of radio dramas released in 2005 based on his final books. Additional books in his canon have been written by others, and now they're getting radio adaptations in 2018. Here's a quote with the stuff that matters:

"Across six episodes, Simon Jones will reprise his role as the main protagonist, the quintessentially English Arthur Dent, as he continues to travel through space and time following the destruction of Earth. Starring alongside Simon will be members of the classic radio, television and stage casts, including Geoff McGivern as Ford Prefect, Mark Wing-Davey as Zaphod Beeblebrox and Sandra Dickinson as Trillian, as well as special guest stars including Jane Horrocks as Fenchurch. Following in the footsteps of the late Peter Jones and William Franklyn, Douglas Adams' friend, co-author and former flatmate John Lloyd will step into the the voice of The Book."

New Mummy Demastered Game "Based" on 2017 Tom Cruise Movie

Video GamesVia many: The Mummy Demastered takes the word ‘Metroidvania' one step further. WayForward is talking up their adaptation of this year's big shared universe flop, The Mummy, which actually looks awesome. The 2D not-quite-Turrican seems to share a villain and colors with the movie, and little else.

With big bugs and monsters, it seems to have a lot in common with the wackier 8-bit and 16-bit adaptations of games in the NES, Super NES, and Genesis libraries - except this time, it might actually be really fantastic. WayForward gave us Contra 4 on the Nintendo DS, plus a lot of other really good retro-ish games.

New Games for the Xbox One

Xbox OneShinyXbox fans, it's time to try Shiny. Microsoft says:

"Left to fend for himself after mankind abandoned the doomed planet Aurora, robot Kramer 227 must find a way to harvest energy and rescue his robotic friends before Aurora crashes into its sun. In his journey, Kramer will probe the planet itself and overcome challenging obstacles, all while trying to conserve his limited life energy to power himself and his friends on their way to safety. Kramer will gather and share energy with his fellow robots, helping them escape dire situations and predicaments. He will have to jump and explore every platform in every corner of the 20 extensive levels to find all of his friends. Energy is running low on Aurora, so Kramer will have to collect batteries or use generators to recharge, as every action drains his power. Various power-ups collected along the way, such as jetpacks, energy spheres and temperature regulators, can help him on this crucial journey. Shiny is about saving lives, so it contains no blood or violence."

New Japanese Transformers Listings

TransformersVia BWTF.com: Toy News: Official images and listings for LG-EX Grand Maximus & Greatshot, or "You don't want that $400, do you?"

Greatshot is a Sixshot retool with a winged rhino mold. Really. The robot looks vastly different and it's beautiful, also $80ish. Grand Maximus is a decked out Fort Max redeco with the sword and even a Pretender shell. Maybe. This is unclear. It'll be closer to $240. Factor in shipping and import fees, and well, it's gonna be pricey if you go for these - neither are known to be planned for the USA.
