There is an MMO Bomberman you can play for free

27 Feb

bombermine bomberman online multiplayer

Yes, you heard it right! You can play an online multiplayer version of Bomberman with thousands of other people in the same arena, for free!

Obviously it in not an official version of the game, but it looks so awesome that even Konami shared the link on their Twitter.

Bombermine (this is the name of the in-browser game) could not be the most polite version of Bomberman you can find, but for sure you’ve never played such a massive multiplyer while casting bombs! You can play it on the “official” website.

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.

The Yoshida-ryo dormitory and its retrogaming beauties

4 Feb

There is a place at the southern edge of Kyoto University’s Yoshida Campus in Kyoto; a century old building called Yoshida-ryo Dormitory. It was first built in 1913 and since then it houses student squatters for ridiculously low rent. No surprise, this place is rubbish and the poorly aged building needs some major restoration works. It’s also the filthiest and dustiest place you’ve probably ever seen. Obviously Kyoto University wants to demolish it and eventually build a new dormitory, but the tenants aren’t of the same mind.

So why are we talking about this shit? How can this be possibly video game related? Use your brain…students living in the same bohemian-like (more anarchy-like) dormitory for ages, generation after generation, since 1913. And we are talking about mainly Japanese students. C’mon, it’s easy! THIS PLACE IS FULL OF VIDEO GAMES LEFT BEHIND BY ALL THE PREVIOUS STUDENTS!

Let’s take a virtual tour! (some pics are taken from Roy Berman‘s article on CNN Travel, and some from this imagur album).

This is the "main" entrance to the building (where are the video games?)
