    Inspired by the likes of DahrkDaiz, ATA and other great rom hackers of the mid-2000s, Frantik started work on Super Mario Unlimited with the hopes of creating his own asm-heavy Mario masterpiece. It took close to 7 years, but eventually the game was released to the world in late 2011. Overall the hack was well received and of AVGN fame. Despite the popularity, it was a little rough around the edges, most notably with some questionable choices near the end and a little too much of that infamous “Nintendo Hard”.
    In 2017 Frantik decided to go back and start adding a bit more polish, and Super Mario Unlimited - Deluxe was born. Everything good about the original has been made better, and everything bad has been removed, or at least cleaned up. This is the original vision Frantik had when he started 15 years ago!
    More info
    Super Mario Unlimited Deluxe is a traditional-style Mario hack with difficulty ramping up from beginner to expert. It is based on the Super Mario Bros engine, but has been completely reworked into a whole new adventure.
    Changes from the original game include:


      • 41 Original Levels!
      • Unlimited Lives!
      • New Power-up! The stopwatch lets Mario freeze his enemies
      • New Mechanics! Mario can super jump off enemies by holding A
      • New Collectable! Find all 32 Mario coins to unlock secrets
      • New Graphics and Music! A familiar mix of new and old

    New features and changes in this DELUXE version:


      • Save your progress with three save game slots
      • All new Bowser fight with new music
      • A “secret message” at the end of each world
      • Attempt counter aka lives counter
      • Mario coin count is displayed on screen
      • Indicator displayed for when a Mario coin has been picked up
      • Hidden power up blocks are now partially visible
      • Different end game text depending on how you play the game
      • Bowser’s castle expanded with a second route
      • World 6-5 expanded
      • Bonus hidden level added
      • “Speed runner mode” - Can you beat your personal record?
      • SecondQuest / “Hard Mode”
      • Many more tweaks, bug fixes and edits!

    A strategy guide with detailed information on all cheats and secrets, as well as cover art for use with NES Classic are also included in the archive.

    In 2019, Andrei Prykhodko (whiterandrek), a GSoC student, was working on support for the Red Comrades game series (Russian: Петька и Василий Иванович).
    Red Comrades is a 2D adventure game played from a third-person perspective. The game's protagonists are from Dmitri Furmanov's 1923 novel Chapaev: historical Russian military figure Vasiliy Chapayev, his aide Petka, and the machine gunner, Anka.
    After a long time in development, the ScummVM team is happy to announce support for the first two games in the series: Red Comrades 1: Save the Galaxy (Russian: Петька и Василий Иванович спасают галактику) and Red Comrades 2: For the Great Justice (Russian: Петька и Василий Иванович 2: Судный день).
    So break out your copies of the games and give them a try! Unfortunately, only the original Russian Windows versions are supported. The English versions for iOS and Android use a completely different engine.
    If you don’t own a copy, you can get the demo from our demos section. You will need a daily development build. As always, please submit the bug reports to our issue tracker.

    Microsoft’s budget-focused next-gen machine Xbox Series S is a fantastic piece of kit as an entry point into the next seven years of console gaming, but it turns out the cute little box is also extremely good for emulation.

    The fantastic emulation/console security YouTuber MVG (Modern Vintage Gamer) recently released a video covering the emulation possibilities of the new Microsoft machine for gamers who have access to the console’s Dev Mode.

    Dev Mode on Xbox Series S and Xbox Series X is the same as that available on Xbox One. For a small cost of $20, Microsoft will allow you to access a developer environment to install homebrew software on the system.

    With everything set up properly, Xbox Series S and X players can install the amazing emulation suite Retroarch and play games from most consoles you could ever care about: GameCube, Dreamcast (hell, yeah!), PSP, Nintendo Wii, PS1 and more.

    While there are some stutters and compatibility issues with certain games, MVG notes that the performance on most compatible titles is incredible, knocking out the Nvidia Shield TV as the best emulation box currently on the market.

    The PlayStation 5 has outsold its forebears at launch, making it the biggest debut since the original Sony console.

    The official PlayStation Twitter account thanked fans for their support and confirmed the milestone, although the company has yet to share official sales figures.

    "We want to thank gamers everywhere for making the PS5 launch our biggest console launch ever," the platform holder wrote.

    "Demand for PS5 is unprecedented, so we wanted to confirm that more PS5 inventory will be coming to retailers before the end of the year -- please stay in touch with you local retailers."

    PS5 launched almost two weeks ago on November 12th in North America, Japan, Australia, New Zealand, Singapore and South Korea, arriving in all other major markets -- except China -- on November 19.

    A new report has thrown the impact of scalpers and bots on PlayStation 5's launch into sharp relief.

    Business Insider spoke to groups who have secured large quantities of the new console and are reselling them at an inflated price.

    One UK-based group, CrepChiefNotify, told the site its 12 members had collectively purchased close to 2,472 PS5 units in recent weeks, plus "just under 1,000" when pre-orders first opened in September.

    Groups like this are usually competing with each other over high-price items, such as designer sneakers, as well as other products that have seen a dramatic increase in demand during the pandemic.

    "Our developer wrote some site monitor software, and we tracked the stock of the sites selling hot tubs," said Tom, a CrepChiefNotify manager, by way of example. "Every time they pinged into stock, we would notify our members to buy it all."

    The group used the same software to monitor retail sites for Xbox Series X|S and PS5 stock, as well as bots that could circumvent wait times, jump online queues and purchase consoles faster than a human being would be able to.

    "Bot developers have seen the demand rise for next-gen consoles," said Tom. "[They] have changed their focus from being sneaker-focused bots into multi-use bots for electronics too."

    Business Insider reports one individual reseller was charging $1,100 for the $500 disc-based PS5 and $900 for the $400 digital-only model. Meanwhile, groups like CrepChiefNotify charge anyway between $40 and $530 as a subscription to their service.

    PS5 launched on November 12 is key markets, and then the rest of the world on November 19.

    Celebrate Super Mario World 30th anniversary with Super Luigi World! Luigi steals the spotlight in this iconic platformer for the SNES. Play the original levels with the same classic gameplay, but this time you’re playing as Luigi!

    Features

    Luigi’s sprite from Super Mario All-Stars + Super Mario World
    Luigi is now Player 1 and Mario is Player 2
    All text now refers to Luigi, including:
    A modified title screen logo
    Savefile names
    Message boxes
    Boss clear texts
    The ending text after beating the game
    Credits
    The inspiration for Super Luigi World came from playing the second half of Super Mario Galaxy in the 3D All-Stars Collection. This spawned the idea of creating a Luigi-version of Super Mario World dedicated to Luigi-fans!

    It always felt off that the ending said “Mario’s adventure is over.” even if you beat the game as Luigi.

    Super Luigi World restores the balance as you can now play as Luigi in a 1 Player Game or force your younger siblings to play as Luigi’s red brother in 2 Player Game mode!

    What started as a seemingly easy beginner project quickly began to take more time than expected. It was a fun way to start getting into romhacking but most of all it granted a new appreciation for the effort this community puts into these projects!

    Please enjoy, Super Luigi World!

    Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War had a huge first week as a digital download in the UK.
    Download launch sales are up almost 39% compared with last year's Call of Duty: Modern Warfare release, according to the latest GSD download report.
    It follows a disappointing physical retail performance for the game. Black Ops Cold War sold 64% fewer copies at launch in a box compared with last year's Modern Warfare (GfK data), which meant that for the first time in 13 years the game failed to top the UK boxed charts.
    However, if we now add in digital downloads (as predicted earlier in the week), Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War would have comfortably been No.1, with Assassin's Creed Valhalla coming in at No.2.
    Despite the digital success, when combining digital and physical together, the new Call of Duty's sales are still down over 16% compared with last year's entry. It's worth remembering, of course, that a free-to-play Call of Duty battle royale game was released earlier this year, and it continues to be a big success, which may have impacted sales. In addition, PC data isn't included.
    Ubisoft's Assassin's Creed Valhalla is one of just a few new games that have been released in recent months that sold better as a physical release than a digital one. Even so, digital download sales for Valhalla are more than 200% higher than the last game in the franchise, 2018's Assassin's Creed Odyssey. In fact, the first week digital download sales alone for Valhalla are more than what digital and physical did combined for Odyssey. The Ubisoft game has been a phenomenal success, and its position as one of the main Xbox Series X/S launch title appears to have paid off.
    In fact, because of the launch of the new Xbox consoles, both Assassin's Creed Valhalla and Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War were downloaded most on Microsoft's consoles over PlayStation 4, which is not something we would see in a typical week considering the higher PS4 install base in the UK. 55% of Call of Duty's download sales were on Xbox, while almost 58% of Assassin's Creed's digital sales were on Microsoft's machines.
    One notable difference in the digital charts vs the physical charts is the absence of PS5 games. The PlayStation 5 has only just launched in the UK, and although PS5 physical games were available to buy last week, they were obviously unavailable to download. Even so, Spider-Man: Miles Morales was still the No.3 game in the digital download charts due to the PS4 version of the game. This version of the game narrowly sold more as a download than it did as a boxed release.
    The other PS4 exclusive last week -- Sackboy's Big Adventure -- didn't perform as well. The 3D platformer missed the Top 40 digital chart entirely, but expect it to fare better next week when it arrives on PS5.
    In terms of other new releases, Sega's Yakuza: Like A Dragon makes No.9, meanwhile the new XIII remake makes No.18. The XIII remake has been criticised in the media due to bugs and a move away from its comic book visual style. This appears to have inspired gamers to go and download the 2003 original, as that game actually returned to the charts and sold better than the remake -- it is currently in 16th place.

    This time around the authors came up with a project started ages ago by many groups, but never finished. Lord Oddeye and TheMajinZenki started working on it 4-5 years ago, but only now did it come to fruition, thanks to cybermind (a new member of the group).
    The game is an RTS by Nihon Falcom. It had plenty of different ports, but generally it could be said that the Mega Drive/Genesis version is the best, due to its great, funny campaign, and all the additional scenarios it offers to the players. In the main campaign the players will control Prince Al, who wants to be acknowledged by his father as a great ruler. On his quest, he’s going to meet many interesting characters and will engage in many battles against the forces of evil, but with some twists. Overall, the group considers this game to be very fun, and hopes the players will too!
    Once again, thanks to TheMajinZenki for his peerless translation work/translating the manual, Lord Oddeye for the invaluable help with the proofreading/testing the game multiple times and cybermind, as thanks to the hacking prowess of the new member this project was possible. Enjoy, see you next time!
