Here is a quick update with a cool sprite donation and some news.

Sprite Rips – Makron’s giant pack of Pretty Soldier Sailor Moon (arcade) sprites has been updated. This pack includes things that don’t even appear when you play the game so it’s worth the download if you plan to make a fan game or are just a fan of the Sailor Scouts.

Game Index – Streets of Rage 3 was added. Minor adjustments were made to the Sega company page. One minor goal I have for early 2011 is to have Game Index pages for certain series that I really like (Final Fight, SoR, Golden Axe) and those that don’t get much attention on English-speaking sites (Rushing Beat, Crime Fighters) before I start the Series Index (a new version of the old Saga section) later in the year. I’ll try to get at add at least one game to the index in every mini-update.

Breakin’ News

Item 1: Bionic Commando: Re-Armed is on sale for only $4.99 on Playstation Network. I gladly paid that much at K-Mart for my replacement copy of the NES cart over ten years ago so I’d say that getting an incredibly solid remake on a current-gen system is a steal. It’s more than a remake… it’s an adventure. If you’re even thinking about getting it, just get it now.

It was also announced that Hudson’s Turbografx-16 games will finally start hitting North American Playstation store. Check out the Destructoid story right here. New Adventure Island, Bonk’s Adventure and Bomberman ’94 will be in the first batch. It’s good to see some more old-school games hitting the network.

Item 2: Just in case you haven’t heard the good news…

… Mike Haggar is back.

Item 3: I just found out about the following man thanks to the creative double-threat known as Dynamowolf. I’m only learning about him now because I’m a shut-in even on the internet. Most of you will know his work already:

YouTube: WizzyWhipitWonderful

Yes, that’s a remix in the glorious style of a mid-90’s CPS-2 arcade game and it’s the work of Wizzy. He’s back on YouTube with new material that’s specifically designed to give eargasms to anyone who misses that raw sound you miss from X-Men:CotA and Marvel Super Heroes before Capcom’s BGM’s started getting all lounge-jazzy on us. Nothing against that but it doesn’t mix with fighting for most of us. He has a ton of work posted already so go through the catalog to hear some great remixes of various Capcom tracks including a few surprises. Be sure to subscribe and drop a note to let him know that you like what he’s layin’ down.

That’s enough for today. Have a good weekend!
