Super Famicom Cart Reissue - Gourmet Sentai Bara Yarou

NintendoVia NCS: Gourmet Sentai Bara Yarou. This Super Famicom game from 1995 is something you probably haven't heard of, but it used to sell for $1,000 for a complete original copy. It's not quite the same thing as the packaging and cartridge are different, but the game is supposedly unchanged and excellent.

It should be about US $60 at most importers. It lacks the Nintendo seal of quality or whatever, but it exists and you can order it for delivery in January.

Dr. Demento, Punk, Shatner, with art by Drew Friedman

MusicOur pal Phil tipped us off to the dork tuducken that is Dr. Demento Covered in Punk. Drew "Old Jewish Comedians" Friedman drew the cover, and it's an album of mostly covers.

Highlights:
Joan Jett covers Rocky Horror
Shatner covers The Cramps
Weird Al covers The Ramones Shonen Knife covers Weird Al

You might be the audience for the whole album, but you're probably going to be very excited about something on this. As far as I know it's new material, and I'm dying to hear it. Your inner 13-year-old can hear it in full come January. It sounds completely bonkers but that seems like a compelling reason to get a copy.

Rolling Stone has an article about it, potentially making this the first time you went to Rolling Stone for music years this century.

Utilizing a draining battery mechanic in place of lives, Assault Android Cactus challenges you to think fast and keep the bullets flying, blending the gameplay of western styled arena shooters with aspects of Japanese style bullet hell as you charge head first through transforming stages, massive boss battles and an eclectic cast of characters on the way to saving the day."

Also available: Marvel's Guardians of the Galaxy: The Telltale Series - Episode 5, Super Lucky's Tale, Need For Speed Payback - Deluxe Edition, HITMAN - Game of the Year Edition, EA SPORTS FIFA 18 & NHL 18 Bundle, EA SPORTS FIFA 18 & NBA LIVE 18: The One Edition Bundle, America's Greatest Game Shows: Wheel of Fortune & Jeopardy!, World Of Tanks X Edition, and SONIC FORCES.
