Hackers find that F-Zero AX is fully playable within F-Zero GX on GameCube

f-zero ax gx

F-Zero GX is a masterpiece for the GameCube, a great collaboration between SEGA and Nintendo (and the first one, right after SEGA became a third party developer) that leaded to an awesome racing game. The game had also its counterpart in the arcades, indeed there was (and still is, but it is ridiculously rare to find) a cabinet version called F-Zero AX. The two games can exchange save data via GameCube memory cards in order to unlock some extra stuff, but recently, some hackers found that the two versions of the game have something else in common.

People at The Cutting Room Floor, a site dedicated to unearthing and researching unused and cut content from video games (from debug menus, to unused music, graphics, enemies, or levels, many games have content never meant to be seen by anybody but the developers), recently discovered that F-Zero GX contains the full version of F-Zero AX, and everybody can access the game through an Action Replay disc.

The unused content was a difficult find, as it was hidden for almost a decade (the GX version was released back in 2003). AX is unlockable in both PAL and NTSC version of the game, but obviously it is a bit buggy and contains some instances of Japanese text.

These are the two codes needed to unlock the arcade game in your GameCube version:

NTSC:

Resident Evil 1.5 Gameplay | Elza Walker

19 Feb

After our post about the release of an early build of Resident Evil 1.5 and the previous video about the Leon campaign, here we go with a second one! This time we tried the Elza Walker campaign. We use the word tried instead of played because…oh well…watch the video.

Resident Evil 1.5 Gameplay | Leon S. Kennedy

18 Feb

As we already told you here, a build of the long-waited Resident Evil 1.5 leaked, so the guys behind the so-called restoration project have released a playable build of the game. We have played it a bit today, so enjoy our gameplay video for the Leon S. Kennedy campaign.

Yes, there are a lot of doors we didn’t open…why? Because most of them lead to a game crash or to major gameplay issues.

Why we didn’t use the knife to fight the baboons? Because if you press the button for that you can just open the debug menu, so we just enjoyed our death.

A video for Elza Walker gameplay is coming soon, so stay tuned.

**UPDATE 19 Feb 2013**

Here we go with Elza

Resident Evil 1.5 leaked!

18 Feb

resident evil 1.5 leaked build

Sometimes miracles just happen! And this is the case, because finally, after 17 years, Resident Evil 1.5 leaked on the net!

Resident Evil 2 began development in 1996 shortly after the original game and was originally scheduled for a March 1997 release. However, as the game was approaching its release date, the developers were dissatisfied with the resulting product. Rather than releasing a game they were unhappy with, the developers took the risk of developing the game again from scratch. Resident Evil 1.5 is the name given to that famous scrapped version, and now you can actually play it (sort of).

Basically this is what happened. A team of hackers obtained an incomplete build of the legendary scrapped version of Resident Evil 2, and are working to finish it. However, it seems like a build of their restoration project leaked to someone in the Resident Evil community, who then proceeded to try and sell it around. Due to this, the team have released the same build. That is not the current build on which they’re working on, but still, for now it’s better than nothing.

For now enjoy the trailer released by MrBZork (the guy behind the restoration project), starring Elza Walker (the main character) and Leon Kennedy facing some infected baboons.

If you want to try this build on your modified PS1 or on your favourite emulator you can download it here. But remember that is not representative of the current state of development of the non-profit restoration fan-project.

Now you can use the Wii U Controller on PC games

5 Feb

We always love people making an improper use of licensed hardware, especially when it’s not about cracking or piracy, but just opening a new world of possibilities. And this is the case of this guy, Chris Manning, transforming the Wii U game pad into something you can use on a PC.

This video also shows how you can re-map the pad in order to make it works with lot of stuff on your PC, like DirectInput games and emulators (including Dolphin and most Steam games).

We know that you’re wondering about the touchscreen and all the cool stuff you’d like to do with it on your PC. Chris also said that a touchscreen support in on the work, and you’ll be able to use the pad as a graphical tablet or similar stuff very soon.

For now, you can download all the stuff you need to make it works here.

Keep it up Chris (and watch your back from Nintendo)
