2022 is an amazing year to be a retro gamer. Although the original hardware up to the fourth generation may be up to forty years old and beginning to falter, gamers continue to play and rent the classic games. The simplicity of the classic lineups from former rivals Nintendo and Sega holds up to this day.

The classic mini boom of 2017-2019 preceded a growing wave of new retro consoles seeking to replicate the experiences of those classic machines. Each had its own charms and each retro experience was unique. The variety of retro consoles, both plug-and-play and cartridge-based, quickly responded to the need for retro games.

11 Evercade shines with a rapidly growing library

Introduced in early 2020, the Blaze Evercade is a single-player handheld console that mimics the shape of a handheld console from the late 1990s. Its screen is an old-style LCD, which makes it harder to play games. faster games.

Similar in size and shape to cartridges in the Sega Game Gear, Evercade’s proprietary flash cartridges are licensed from companies like Atari, Bandai Namco and Jaleco. They also have amazing retro-themed indie collections. Its cartridge is future proof as the upcoming Evercade VS and Evercade EXP systems use the same media form factor and are compatible with their software.

ten Hyperkin’s RetroN 77 asks Did you play Atari today?

The faux wood finish of the Hyperkin RetroN 77 leaves no doubt as to the console it intends to imitate. Mimicking the distinctive woodgrain veneer of the Atari 2600, the RetroN 77 delivers a satisfying user experience as soon as it’s placed on the shelf.

The test of the RetroN 77 is how well it replicates the experience of playing its old games, and here the console shines. Rather than playing games directly from fifty-year-old cartridges, the RetroN 77 analyzes a game in a live memory state and emulates from that analysis. It’s a functional solution to a thorny problem in retro gaming.

9 Polymega shows its promise in retro gaming on CD-ROM

For a growing number of gamers, the “retro” label includes the fifth and even the sixth generation of consoles. The latest generation of console cartridge games is the N64 and the first two generations of PlayStation. The Polymega modular console allows gamers to play the games they grew up in without the fragility of 20-year-old consoles.

Polymega combines retro features for fifth and sixth generation consoles. With a custom controller combining the best of Saturn, N64, and PlayStation controllers into a single unit, PolyMega quickly outgrows its labor pains and becomes a powerhouse.

8 Super Retro-Cade’s corny name hides its emulation skill

Most retro consoles focus on replicating the home game console experience of the 1980s and 1990s. Super Retro-Cade by RetroBit takes a different track. Using its powerful processor to emulate arcade machines of the era, Super Retro-Cade focuses on arcade ports from titans like Irem, Capcom, Konami and Technos.

RELATED: 10 Best Console Games That Started In The Arcade

Super Retro-Cade is a little older than most dedicated emulation machines, but its licensed games and stable front end make it easy to love. Plus, its USB controller ports make it easy to find a fun controller that works well with it.

seven RetroPie is as good as your patience will make it

RetroPie is an operating system designed to work with the Raspberry Pi computer. RetroPie and its interface, EmulationStation, make the video game process as simple as finding the game in a menu, but its positioning as a retro console involves a few caveats.

Since RetroPie is a computer interface and not a “real” console, it will take time and willpower to get into the software and get it to work the way the owner wants. But for someone patient, it can be one of the most rewarding gaming experiences available.

6 Evercade VS takes the Evercade experience and moves it to TV

In 2021, Evercade expanded its offering by adding the standalone Evercade VS console. Although it runs on a similar operating system to the portable Evercade and uses the same cartridges, the VS has a faster processor. Equipped with 1080p video, it adds two more shoulder buttons to the controller.

RELATED: 10 Games That Were Saved By An Updated Re-release

Introduced with the Evercade VS, a range of arcade cartridges with a distinctive purple box dress. The controllers are crisp, responsive digital models. The selection of arcade games – including early hits from Data East, Technos, Atari and Jaleco – offers a bit for all fans of the 80s arcade scene. Evercade VS is a fantastic option for collectors.

5 Analogue’s Nintendo deals feature a trio of classic game consoles

Field-Programmable Gate Array technology allows gamers to experience classic gaming consoles exactly as they were originally intended. By precisely emulating hardware in a custom chip, hardware maker Analogue has created arguably the best modern versions of NES, Super NES, and Game Boy hardware.

The Super Nt Analog, among the three, is widely praised for its excellent fidelity to Super Nintendo/Super Famicom hardware. If the owner can afford the price of expensive analog hardware, their Nintendo offerings represent the best replica Nintendo hardware available.

4 Analogue Mega Sg provides a benchmark for Sega’s first 15 years of consoles

Analogue has made excellent FPGA-based reproductions of Nintendo’s hardware, providing perfect replicas for the Super NES, NES and Game Boy archives. They also create an all-in-one replica of Sega’s first Zilog Z80 and Motorola 68000 based gaming rigs, the Mega Sg.

RELATED: 10 Things You Didn’t Know About The Sega Genesis Dragon Ball Z Game

The Analog Mega Sg and its series of cartridge adapters offer incredible fidelity to the Genesis and Mega Drive. It also offers backwards compatibility with Sega’s three eight-bit game consoles: SG-1000, Mark III/Master System and Game Gear. The Mega Sg Analog is the pinnacle of Sega emulation fidelity.

3 Hyperkin delivers authentic experiences for a fraction of the cost

If spending FPGA money is too much for your budget, system-on-chip renders of Super Nintendo and Sega Genesis hardware offer an option to replace failing old machines. Representing budget hardware well, the Hyperkin SupaRetroN HD and MegaRetroN HD are excellent options.

The Hyperkin Mega and Supa RetroNs are high-fidelity system-on-chip reproductions of the original Genesis and Super NES hardware. Systems are true to their originals and can run multiple special chip titles, like Sega’s Virtual Race with its specialized SVP equipment.

1 The originals can always be the best

Many fans would say nothing compares to the feeling of clicking a cartridge in an original Nintendo entertainment system. Despite the fragility of the aging hardware, there’s no retro console like an original console.

The original NES “Toaster” is a delicate beast, with many parts that can be bent or otherwise damaged. One or two bent pins can prevent the notoriously finicky 10NES program from working, preventing legitimate cartridges from being played. Even with its flaws and problems, however, there is no place like home.

Since their inception, Achievements have given gamers an extra challenge when playing their favorite games. From playing the hardest difficulty to collecting all those pesky collectibles, there has always been a task to reward. And reward him; to be the holder of one of these rare and hard-earned achievements is something to brag about.



RELATED: The Hardest Video Game Achievements In History

2022 has brought its own challenges and, just like previous years, has offered extreme achievements to be won. It’s the creme de la creme for 2022 – achievements that aren’t for the faint of heart. If you find yourself among the few who have unlocked some of them, then brag about it, because you definitely deserve it.

GAME VIDEO OF THE DAY

9 Ultramarathon – Dying Light 2

The Ultramarathon achievement absolutely deserves its name. To unlock the achievement in Dying Light 2, you need to complete a total distance of 960km in your playtime. To put that into perspective, that distance is equivalent to running just under 23 standard marathons.

Although you spend the majority of your time traveling anyway, players report that it took them over 180 hours to unlock this achievement. Thankfully, the addition of New Game+ to Dying Light 2 gave players a reason to venture into the game after completing it. However, there’s still a big chance you’ll miss this one, even after another full game.

8 Pac-Master – Pac-Man Museum+

One of the most iconic arcade games of all time, next to Donkey Kong and Frogger, Pac-Man has always required skill to play successfully. Pac-Man Museum+ requires you to use this skill to complete all missions in 14 separate Pac-Man titles to unlock the Pac-Master achievement.

RELATED: Every Game In Pac-Man Museum+, Ranked

Having to set insanely high scores, clear a number of boards, and eat a lot of ghosts across multiple titles is a daunting task for even the most skilled Pac-Man player. It doesn’t help that users have reported severe input lag. Pac-Master is an achievement that only the most dedicated Pac-Man fans even have a chance to unlock.

seven First Rainbow Crown – Taiko No Tatsujin: The Drum Master!

Rhythm games aren’t the easiest for everyone. Taiko no Tatsujin is a rhythm game where you physically play a taiko drum along with the songs, similar to the cult classic Donkey Konga. However, the version for Xbox does not come with a taiko drum, so players must play on their controller or keyboard, which increases the difficulty.

In order to get their first Rainbow Crown, players must not only play a song perfectly, but also hit every beat with perfect timing. Hitting every note alone won’t net you a Rainbow Crown. This requirement of perfect synchronization with the beat is what makes directing so skill-based. Not everyone has a rhythm, and for those who lack it, this feat may be permanently out of reach.

6 School’s Out Forever – Danganronpa: Trigger Happy Havoc Anniversary Edition

Part murder mystery, part high school drama, part dating sim, Danganronpa is an interactive visual novel that’s truly offbeat. School’s Out Forever requires players to win every ending in the game’s school mode. It sounds easy, but it’s a long journey.

RELATED: Every Execution In Danganronpa: Trigger Happy Havoc, Ranked

To unlock school mode, players must first complete the Danganronpa story. An easy task. However, even to earn a School Mode ending, players must have completed all of each student’s report cards. Then, and only then, will you be able to unlock one of the 14 required endings. Requiring ridiculous time and dedication, School’s Out Forever is forever reserved for Danganronpa’s most loyal fans.

5 Journey of a Lifetime – WWE 2K22

After taking a year off, WWE returned and brought with it one of the toughest and most time-consuming achievements of the year in WWE 2K22. The Journey of a Lifetime achievement requires you to complete all Lifetime Challenges in MyFaction, a team building mode similar to MyTeam or FIFA Ultimate Team from other sports games.

MyFaction comes with a long list of challenges that must be completed for completion, including winning 500 matches and collecting a certain number of cards of each rarity. Not only does this take a huge amount of time, but a healthy dose of luck to earn the necessary rare cards.

4 Best of the Best – Sniper Elite 5

If there’s one thing the Sniper Elite series is known for – other than letting you shoot Hitler in the nuts – it’s its hard Authentic difficulty. The Best of the Best achievement tasks you with completing all missions in the game on this difficulty, which is no small feat.

Authentic in Sniper Elite is on a whole new level. Instead of being able to easily drop Nazis in the blink of an eye, you have to adjust your shots to account for wind and distance. Enemies are also much more aware of your presence and will spot you more easily.


3 Elden Ring – Elden Ring

It should come as no surprise that a game made by FromSoftware is home to some of the toughest achievements of the year. The titular achievement in Elden Ring serves no purpose other than unlocking all other achievements in the game.

RELATED: Elden Ring: Hardest Achievements To Obtain

While all of the other Elden Ring achievements come with their own set of challenges, you will need to overcome each of them to earn the Elden Ring achievement. This includes finding all legendary armaments, ash remains, sorceries, incantations, talismans, defeating numerous bosses, and unlocking every ending. Good luck.


2 Unstoppable – Trek to Yomi

Unstoppable in Trek To Yomi is unlocked by beating the game in Kensei mode, a mode where you die in one hit. On the plus side, every enemy also dies in a single hit. All enemies except bosses, which are of course the toughest fights in the game.

You will need to memorize the combat patterns and be an expert on all the enemies in the game, especially the bosses. There is no room for error, because one mistake will mean your death.

1 Super Go Outside – Stanley’s Parable: Ultra Deluxe

Stanley’s parable is full of achievements that are only there for troll players. This includes achievements like Engagement, which requires you to play the game for the duration of an entire Tuesday – every 24 hours.

Super Go Outside is unlocked by not playing the game for 10 years, so it’s not even available until 2032, at the earliest. Players started unlocking it in not-so-legitimate ways, prompting the developers to label them cheaters. If you want to unlock this as expected, you better set a reminder.

Although the story and side missions make up the bulk of the content of Grand Theft Auto games, players can engage in a plethora of other activities to occupy their time. After all, sometimes gamers need a break from all the chaos unfolding on screen.



RELATED: The Dumbest Things That Happened In The Franchise

These activities and pastimes, in the form of mini-games, provide players with a fun distraction when they crave something lighter. Whether it’s for an achievement/trophy or some other reward, participating in these awesome mini-games is rarely a waste of time. The following mini-games are some of the Grand Theft Auto the funniest (and addictive) entertainment in the franchise.

seven Bowling

In Grand Theft Auto 4, the Bowling minigame became notorious due to Roman Bellic’s annoying habit of bothering the protagonist with requests to hang out at Memory Lanes. This humorous irritation aside, bowling turns out to be a fun activity in grand theft auto 4.

The mechanics of the game are simple: players choose their starting position behind the line, take their shot, and can control the angle of the ball for a brief period before it crosses the red center marks. Unfortunately, bowling has been excluded from Auto grand theft 5so hopefully the minigame reappears in the next entry.

6 Tennis

Tennis is one of many sports that players can participate in throughout their GTA 5 and grand theft auto online. The minigame is unlocked at the start of the game after completing “Complications” as Franklin. Several courts are scattered across the city, although the most convenient location is behind Michael’s house.

RELATED: Grand Theft Auto 6: Characters That Need Shutting Down

Although not too complicated, tennis can take some practice. The fans have a choice of which shot they want to take and must constantly reposition themselves to stay ahead of the defense. It can be quite an addictive distraction, especially at higher difficulty levels.

5 Badlands Revenge II

Older fans who have spent a lot of time in the arcades may feel a bit nostalgic for games like Badlands Revenge II. This is a light western shooter where players have to send a series of enemies on rails. The minigame can only be played in grand theft auto online.

Accuracy is the name of the game in Badlands Revenge II. Like many real-life retro shooters, players must avoid hitting innocent civilians while aiming for the bad guys. A variety of health items, ammo drops, and bonuses also litter the environment. There are five stages in the game, each with their own antagonists and settings, although the central objective remains the same throughout.

4 Darts

Darts is a minigame that made its franchise debut in Grand Theft Auto 4although fans can also play it Auto grand theft 5. Darts are a simple way to pass the time on a date or activity with friends. Fans must reduce their score to zero as quickly as possible before their opponent does the same.

It’s an easy-to-understand game that offers just enough challenge to keep players interested for a short time.

3 casino games

Why not spend some of that ill-gotten money on a game of chance? Many Grand Theft Auto games have given players the opportunity to play, especially in GTA San Andreas. Games such as blackjack, roulette, slots, video poker and wheel of fortune, as well as interactive horse racing, have appeared in San Andreas.

RELATED: Grand Theft Auto 6: Side Activities The Open World Should Include

Although it’s not as exciting as winning real money, at least players can act like high rollers and throw away large sums of money when looking to pass the time. The rules of each game are quite simple to understand and can be a fun interlude before moving on to the next mission.

2 QUB3D

QUB3D is yet another arcade game that can be played in Grand Theft Auto 4 and grand theft auto online. It’s a mixture of PuyoPuyo and Tetris. Players are tasked with matching groups of four or more colored blocks before the box is filled. Fans only have a small window of time as blocks fall from the top of the screen.

Of course, block speed is increased as players level up. Fans can use a variety of special abilities to counter the increased difficulty and achieve the highest score. It’s a deceptively simple premise that’s more complex than it seems. There is no doubt that many fans struggled to achieve the highest QUB3D score in grand theft auto 4a requirement to achieve 100% completion.

1 Swimming pool

Billiards, especially the 8-Ball variant, can be played in grand theft auto san andreas and Grand Theft Auto 4. The rules are simple: fans must pocket all balls of a certain type (stripes or solids) and then pocket the 8-Ball. However, mastering Pool is complicated, as players often have to think several moves ahead to stay competitive.

Since Pool requires a fair amount of strategy and foresight, it’s one of the most interesting minigames in the game. Grand Theft Auto franchise. Any activity that takes a bit of time and patience to master is usually a worthwhile mini-game to include, especially for an open-world series like GTA.

Escape Academy Summer Game Fest hands-on preview https://vietcong-game.net/escape-academy-summer-game-fest-hands-on-preview/ Fri, 17 Jun 2022 22:00:00 +0000 https://vietcong-game.net/escape-academy-summer-game-fest-hands-on-preview/ I’ll raise my hand and say that before Summer Game Fest and my preview, I didn’t know much about Escape Academy.

I’ll raise my hand and say that before Summer Game Fest and my preview, I didn’t know much about Escape Academy. After playing it, it is now one of my most anticipated games.

The title was featured during iam8bit and Double Fine’s Day of the Dev’s stream and sees players take on the role of a college student, with the goal of becoming “the ultimate escapee”.

The game is developed by Coin Crew Games, who apart from having experience in making arcade games, also designed real-world escape rooms. The perfect pedigree for a game like this.

We were able to check out one of the Escape Academy challenges and you can read our full rundown below.

DUALSHOCKERS VIDEO OF THE DAY

Our preview kicks off in a maintenance room that slowly fills with water, and with limited clues, we’re tasked with escaping the room before drowning. While this situation probably won’t be found in a real-world escape room, it was the only liberties the preview took.

The title claims to be “one of the first video games to authentically capture the time pressure and mind-bending action of escape rooms and turn it into an immersive digital experience.” And other than the water, that’s exactly right.

As I was let go, I began my journey to find my way out of the room. In this case, there were a range of different floors, each with varying puzzles that led to a code word that should be put into a keypad. This would then unlock a door, allowing me to move up to the next level.

On the first floor, I was to find items, including a screwdriver and a hammer, that would help uncover clues to the all-important code word. I escaped the ground with literally two seconds on the clock. It was a real rush to solve the puzzle and ultimately beat the buzzer.

After my ascent, I solved puzzles involving a safe, switches, a camera, and more.

Each of the puzzles has been designed perfectly. They were tough enough for a couple to break my brains out, but never so obtuse that I wanted to give them up. The ones I struggled the most on were definitely mine, rather than game design and finally solving them felt good to me.

Each of the puzzles has been designed perfectly.

I have to admit, there was one puzzle that I got stuck on for a significant period of time. I tried entering a variety of words into the keyboard but nothing worked. Turns out I was incredibly stupid and the answer was staring me in the face the whole time.

It caused me to run out of time not once but twice. Luckily, there was no annoying screen play or big failure message and I was prompted to continue with more time. It was good. In the end, there was no major punishment for failure other than a lower grade at the end. I got a C which, all things considered, satisfied me.

My preview of Escape Academy was single-player, but the game can be played with a partner, and that’s where I think it will really shine for several reasons.

The game is chaotic, especially as the seconds tick by, and this level of chaos is sure to be a blast when playing with a partner. Along with that, the cooperative puzzle-solving elements will make things easier and more realistic, as no one escapes alone.

The game is chaotic…

As the answer was staring me in the face on the second or third floor, I could have done with a partner. I spent about 10 minutes trying to decipher the word “SLOW” on a wall. My brain didn’t click that the L was lowercase and wasn’t really an I (yes it really was) so I tried SIOW, WOIS and a range of other combinations. Having a partner would have inevitably spared me the rash.

What was interesting was that GamesBeat’s Mike Minotti also struggled to the same extent (sorry Mike), so maybe having a partner wouldn’t have helped.

What really struck me about Escape Academy was how authentic the game felt in a real-world escape room. The puzzles, the environments, the race against time. Everything worked.

There was never anything unfair and I never felt frustrated with the level design. It’s this, the multiplayer components and story potential that propelled Escape Academy to the top end of my most anticipated list. I can’t wait to see what other puzzles the developers have in store.

SANTA MONICA, California, June 15 (Reuters) – Legal arguments in a civil case against Bill Cosby ended on Wednesday, with his lawyer telling jurors they should not believe his accuser’s claim that the comedian sexually assaulted at the Playboy Mansion in 1975.

Cosby’s attorney, Jennifer Bonjean, says plaintiff Judy Huth “did not tell the truth about a number of important things” in her testimony that Cosby forced her to perform a sex act while she was 16 and he was 37. The actor and comedian denies the allegation.

A main issue raised by Bonjean is that Huth changed the date she said the alleged incident happened.

When Huth filed a lawsuit in December 2014, she said Cosby took her hand and masturbated with her in a bedroom at the mansion in 1974. Weeks before the trial, she said she s got the date wrong and now thinks it happened in 1975. .

“I don’t think you can believe anything Ms. Huth says outright,” Bonjean told the jury.

Bonjean argued that Huth and a friend who accompanied him to the mansion had made up a story together to get money from Cosby. The friend had also originally stated that the date was 1974.

Additionally, the two men both said they remember playing the Donkey Kong arcade game at the mansion that night, but that game didn’t exist until 1981. course of the trial. Huth said she used Donkey Kong as an example of the type of game she remembered playing.

Bonjean ended his closing remarks by showing a “Game Over” message common in arcade games on a screen in the courtroom.

This prompted a strong retort from Huth’s attorney, Nathan Goldberg.

“This is not a game,” he shouted at Bonjean during his final remarks to the jury. “Have respect for someone who has been sexually assaulted.”

Goldberg asked jurors to hold Cosby “fully responsible.” Huth is seeking damages for emotional distress she said she has suffered since 2014, when allegations against Cosby were rife in the news, and 2018 when he was sentenced to prison for sexual assault in Pennsylvania.

“Four years of misery. What’s that worth to someone? $1 million a year? $2 million a year?” Goldberg asked.

Jurors in the case, which is being tried in California Superior Court, are expected to begin deliberations Thursday after the judge provides instructions to the jury.

Cosby did not appear in person at the trial, but jurors viewed a roughly 10-minute video of Cosby answering questions from one of Huth’s attorneys during a 2015 deposition.

While Cosby said he did not remember Huth, he said the incident could not have happened because he would not have pursued sexual contact at that time with someone aged 15 year.

The civil trial in California comes 11 months after Cosby was released when Pennsylvania’s highest court overturned his sexual assault conviction in a separate case. Read more

Cosby, 84, is best known for his role as a doting husband and father on the 1980s TV comedy series ‘The Cosby Show’, which earned him the nickname ‘America’s Dad’.

But his family reputation was shattered after more than 50 women accused him of sexual assaults over nearly five decades.

The aerial combat genre can be a little intimidating; While some gamers enjoy immersing themselves in complex flight simulations and engaging in extremely realistic dogfights, others don’t often get into games that can’t be easily played on a standard controller.

Fortunately, while 2022 Top Gun: Maverick emphasizes realism, its imaginative, high-octane action sequences reminiscent of more traditional arcade titles. Of course, many modern games cater to those looking to recreate in detail the daring bombardment seen in the film’s third act, but there are plenty of interesting games too. Superior gun-esque experiences there for those without Maverick level aviation knowledge.

VIDEO OF THE DAY

Top Gun/Top Gun: The Second Mission


A screenshot from the NES game Top Gun: The Second Mission.

Notoriously clumsy and cumbersome, Superior gun on the NES has an overwhelmingly negative reputation among retro gamers. Still, one of the very few direct adaptations of the original 1986 film, it deserves a mention.

Both Superior gun and the following NES title Top Gun: The Second Mission, as inscrutable as they are, deserve credit as early entrants into the flight simulator genre. While still influenced by arcades, these games featured first-person views and tasked players with doing things like performing precise mid-air refuelings and adhering to strict parameters for landing planes on aircraft carriers.

after the burner

Wearing an undeniable Superior gun influence, the 1987 arcade hit after the burner saw arcade goers pilot a virtual F-14 Tomcat in a seated cabinet that moved and titled with gameplay. Incredibly fast and frenetic, after the burner was a perfect arcade companion to the classic Tom Cruise film, and it’s still worth playing three and a half decades after its debut.

Top Gun: Hard Lock

A handful of Superior gun games were released for PC and consoles throughout the 90s and 2000s, finally peaking in 2012 Top Gun: Hard Lock on Xbox 360 and PS3. Seemingly a sequel to the original a decade before Top Gun: Maverick, hard lock builds heavily on the over-the-top action of the original, requiring players to regularly perform impossible aerial maneuvers to lock down and down their aerial opponents.


Score a junk 54 on Metacritic, Top Gun: Hard Lock was forgotten almost immediately after its release, but, the last official Superior gun connection to the video game, loving fans of maverick might want to try this one.

thunder of war

A free-to-play PvP-focused combat simulation set during World War II, thunder of war may not seem quite suitable for fans of Superior gun. However, while it includes tank and naval combat, the dogfights are a huge draw for many fans of the game, and, with settings allowing players to let loose in arcade mode or tighten up their tactics in simulator mode. , it’s accessible for players of all skill levels.

Battlefield 4

Released in 2013, Battlefield 4 captivates with its massive 64-player PvP lobbies and in-depth gameplay that rewards teamwork and tactical approaches. Unfortunately, the series is currently being led by disastrous difficulties with the disappointing 2021 Battlefield 2042although it brought many longtime fans back to the nearly decade old Battlefield Payment.

More Battlefield players fear the game’s high ceiling planes, but skilled pilots are often essential to success in Battlefield 4. Those who want to reconstruct the Top Gun: Maverick the feeling can do this by dodging stinger missiles and gunning down enemies in hectic commotion BF4 multiplayer game.


HAWX by Tom Clancy

In the age of modern gaming, the Tom Clancy name is most often associated with multiplayer tactical shooters, but, in previous decades, publisher Ubisoft has allowed the brand to be applied to a wider variety of games. and genres. Loosely bound to Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon Games, HAWX was an action-packed dogfighting title that added light simulation elements to an otherwise arcade-influenced experience.

Reminiscence of praise often ace fight Games, HAWX developed into a full-fledged sub-series, with a sequel premiering in 2010. While far from Ubisoft’s most memorable release, it was an interesting seventh-gen offering from which Superior gun fans can get some mileage.

Project Winger

Developed by indie studio Sector D2 and published by Humble Games, Project Wingman is something of a low-budget take on the Ace Combat series. Arcadey and outlandish, the title is perfect for those who want the time between liftoff and engaging in combat to be as streamlined as possible.

Many aerial combat in Project Wingman feels straight out of Top Gun: Maverick and, for those with a strong stomach, the game is compatible with VR headsets. Project Wingman might not be the most polished dogfighting title available, but it sure can get the pulse racing.

DCS World

Digital combat simulator— more commonly known as DCS World– is a longtime standard bearer for the military flight sim genre. Incredibly intricate and intricate, DCS World requires players to have at least occasional familiarity with real-world avionics, and it’s much more about mastering small details than blasting enemy planes out of the sky.

Therefore, DCS World is not easy to recommend; it’s really the kind of game aimed only at hardcore simulator fans. That said, it may be the perfect experience for those who have strayed from Top Gun: Maverick feeling like the film would have been enhanced by more in-depth and accurate depictions of modern military aircraft.

IL-2 Sturmovik

Launched in 2001, IL-2 Sturmovik reigns supreme as one of the most in-depth military flight simulators ever released. Focusing primarily on the legendary battles of World War II, the game requires patience, practice, and not insignificant skill. More for WWII enthusiasts than casual gamers, IL-2 Sturmovik will delight enthusiasts while repelling less knowledgeable gamers.


A little like thunder of war, IL-2 Sturmovik sticks mainly to World War II aircraft, although it includes a few early jet aircraft designs that defined aviation advancements in the late 1940s and early 1950s.

Ace Combat 7: Unknown Sky

With the first entry in 1995, the ace fight has become the archetypal franchise most closely associated with the aerial combat genre. Injecting just enough realism to maintain immersion, 2019 Ace Combat 7: Unknown Sky is a seamlessly accessible experience that delights fans new and old.

In truth, it may take newcomers a bit of time to overcome the game’s learning curve, but it delivers an experience that’s ultimately as satisfying as it is elegant. Although it is unlikely that there is a Superior gun-branded standalone video game anytime soon, Ace Combat 7: Unknown Sky plays this role perfectly.

Brouhaha over Birchwood Road closure heats up – Twin Cities https://vietcong-game.net/brouhaha-over-birchwood-road-closure-heats-up-twin-cities/ Sun, 12 Jun 2022 03:07:13 +0000 https://vietcong-game.net/brouhaha-over-birchwood-road-closure-heats-up-twin-cities/ When Washington County construction crews closed a section of Wildwood Road in Mahtomedi this spring, drivers immediately began looking for alternate routes.

When Washington County construction crews closed a section of Wildwood Road in Mahtomedi this spring, drivers immediately began looking for alternate routes.

The officially designated detour sends drivers on Interstate 694, Minnesota Highway 36 and the Hilton Trail, but a more direct route, which drivers soon discovered, is Birchwood Road in Birchwood, with a population of 875. just south of White Bear Lake.

“Our little road instantly became the new highway,” Birchwood Mayor Mary Wingfield said. “Traffic was crushing, virtually non-stop. We had people disobeying stop signs, crossing a double yellow line and doing 50 in a 25 mph zone.

A cyclist was cut and ejected from his bike, and there were “a few near hits” involving children, she said. “It was just chaos.”

COUNCIL VOTED TO CLOSURE THE ROAD

Birchwood Town Council met on May 10 and voted to close the road. Barricades and “road closed” signs were erected later in the week.

“It was going to be a long summer if we had a caravan of vehicles driving through our town all day,” Wingfield said. “It was just a matter of safety trump convenience – nothing more than that. It’s not a thoroughfare. It’s a residential street. We’re allowed to do that, and it was in our interest in doing so.

A few days after the road was closed, Birchwood officials called a special meeting and voted to allow the eastbound lane of the 7 a.m. to 9 a.m. road and the westbound lane of 2 p.m. h 30 to 4:30 p.m. to welcome the school. traffic during the school year.

“But that ended up being more problematic for us because people were getting mixed signals,” Wingfield said.

Accommodation for school traffic ended on Thursday, which was the last day of school for public schools in Mahtomedi.

Mahtomedi officials criticized Birchwood Town Council’s decision to close the road, saying it had “created havoc” and “essentially locked down” Mahtomedi residents.

“We are extremely disappointed with the lack of notice we have received regarding Birchwood’s decision, and your inability to engage or even discuss the proposed closure with Mahtomedi prior to the unexpected road closure,” wrote Mayor Jud Marshall in a May 17 letter. “Your action does a disservice to the residents of both towns…and creates significant hardship for the residents of Mahtomedi who live near the closure.”

The closure, he said in an interview Friday, has hurt local businesses and restaurants and made it difficult for emergency responders to enter Birchwood and serve residents of both towns.

VERY DEBATED ON SOCIAL NETWORKS

The road closure was hotly debated on social media. Some of those upset with the decision have called Wingfield home. Others moved the barricades while driving in the area — an action Wingfield says is illegal and could result in a $300 fine.

One person threw a bag of sand, used to hold up the sign, into a nearby tree, she said. Thursday night, someone robbed one of the barricades.

“The backlash has been incredible,” Wingfield said. “You would think we killed someone’s firstborn, and yet that’s what we’re trying to avoid. We don’t want to see anyone get hurt. Why there is this enormous hustle and bustle is beyond us. Is this the new reality where if something goes wrong with you, you throw a tantrum? »

On Tuesday morning, a young man got out of the front passenger seat of a silver SUV and moved the barricade so the SUV could pass. Several other cars – heading in each direction – quickly followed suit.

“It’s Whac-A-Mole,” Wingfield said, referring to the arcade game. “Someone will come out and put it back in place, then they will move it again. No wonder people get upset when they think it’s open, but it’s not.

SPECIAL MEETING

Birchwood Town Council is holding a special meeting at 7 p.m. Monday at Birchwood Town Hall “to consider alternatives to the existing road closure”, according to the agenda posted online. Among the options currently being considered: temporary speed bumps, making part of the roadway one-way, lowering the speed limit to 20 mph and installing a weight limit for the roadway.

“What we have now is not usable for the summer,” she said. “It’s only a temporary palliative.”

The $5.9 million construction project on Wildwood Road, also known as Washington County Road 12, is expected to be completed in October.

The project, which stretches from Century Avenue to Stillwater Boulevard, includes: pavement replacement, new signage and striping; improved pedestrian crossings; a traffic light at Wedgewood Drive and an off-road multi-use trail on part of Wildwood Road. The project will also include the addition of dedicated left-turn lanes at major intersections.

Birchwood officials called for increased law enforcement “both at the barricade and in the town to flood the area and inform the public that compliance is mandatory,” Wingfield said. “We didn’t have that. Consequently, there was only jumble. There has been no uniform conformity, so there is basically anarchy.

The Washington County Sheriff’s Office has received about 15 calls for service since May 13 related to concerns about the construction project; two quotes have been written that relate directly to driving around closures/ignoring signage.

Sheriff Dan Starry said his office has partnered with the county’s Department of Public Works to increase patrols in the area.

“We understand the concerns of residents, city leaders and adjacent neighborhoods regarding the closure and increased traffic volume,” Starry said. “We will continue to increase patrols for the duration of this construction project and urge all motorists to practice safe driving practices and obey all posted speed limits.”

“IT WAS FRUSTRATING”

Kellie Cardinal, who lives on Birchwood Road, said she hopes the council reverses its decision to close the entire road.

Cardinal is a general contractor who has an office at home. She said the detour adds about 15 to 20 minutes to her return trip, which she sometimes does three or four times a day.

“With gas prices, it’s just super expensive,” said Cardinal, who drives a Dodge Ram 1500. “It’s frustrating. is not open.

Birchwood’s decision “to unilaterally cut off public streets and access to local pharmacies and grocery stores is outrageous,” said Mahtomedi resident Emmett Coleman. “This makes construction disruption significantly more difficult for the wider community.”

But White Bear Township residents Lanny and Peggy Smaagard, who cycled through the area on Tuesday, said they hoped the road would remain closed to traffic.

“It’s unfortunate, but it makes sense,” Lanny said. “If you open it up to cars, trucks will come through, and nobody wants that. It’s such a narrow road. I can see why people are upset, but Birchwood has a right to do that.

NASA has released a retro arcade game about the Nancy Grace Roman Telescope https://vietcong-game.net/nasa-has-released-a-retro-arcade-game-about-the-nancy-grace-roman-telescope/ Fri, 10 Jun 2022 04:07:38 +0000 https://vietcong-game.net/nasa-has-released-a-retro-arcade-game-about-the-nancy-grace-roman-telescope/ Prices and availability of offers may change after posting.

NASA has released a browser game intended to spark interest in the Nancy Grace Roman Telescope. creative title The Roman Space Observer Gamethe retro arcade game of Communication NALA probably isn’t an accurate simulation of what it’s like to use NASA’s sensitive science equipment. Still, it’s a pretty fun distraction.

“You have been given observing time on the Nancy Grace Roman Space Telescope,” reads the opening screen, after players choose between English or Spanish. “You only have one minute to catch as many astrophysical objects and phenomena as possible.”

Similar to Atari Classic Asteroids, celestial objects move across the screen at varying speeds. However, instead of dodging or shooting at them, players must use their arrow keys to chase these objects. Once you’ve placed Roman Space Observer’s sensors on an object, you must quickly press the spacebar to capture it and rack up points.

The most common objects are orange and pink spirals, which are said to signify galaxies and are worth seven points each. Other targets include the Yellow Hexagonal Webb Telescope (75 points), White Star Supernovae (15 points), Blue Ringed Exoplanets (10 points), Green Rogue Exoplanets (25 points) and Dark Dark Matter (40 points) ) and black holes (50 points).

The Roman Space Observer Game is a pretty nice little game, and certainly better than some other promotional video game companies have made. I found the hardest object to catch was the Webb telescope, which flew across my screen like it was looking for a gold medal. Meanwhile, the hardest objects to spot were dark matter and black holes, which barely appeared against the dark starry background. You basically have to keep an eye out for disappearing stars to find them.

You can play The Roman Space Observer Game here.

The Nancy Grace Roman Space Telescope is an observatory slated for launch in the next few years. Although its primary mirror is the same size as the Hubble Space Telescope mirror, measuring 7.9 feet in diameter, its field of view is 100 times larger.

“Roman’s gigantic field of view will allow the mission to create infrared images about 200 times larger than the Hubble Space Telescope can provide while revealing the same level of detail.” writes NASA. “The spacecraft is expected to collect far more data than any other NASA astrophysics mission before it.”

The release of the NES Classic Edition six years ago ushered in an era of blissful reverie filled with nostalgia for veteran gamers and retro enthusiasts alike. Many thought that Nintendo would continually surprise its fans with new generations of mini consoles, but the initial expectations were unfortunately short-lived. After the introduction of the SNES Classic and the fiasco Sony suffered in its attempt at PlayStation Classic, Sega saw the opportunity to reveal the Genesis Mini just months before the pandemic hit. Fast forward to 2022, and the Japanese company has announced the Mega Drive Mini 2 and several games that will be installed with the system.


Inspired by the positive reception of the Genesis Mini and Game Gear Micro, which was exclusive to Japan, Sega ultimately decided to continue building on the unprecedented success of its mini consoles. Due to chip shortages and inflation that became a crushing obstacle at the height of the pandemic, the company opted to focus solely on the Japanese market, despite the fact that the original hardware is faring much better. In Occident.

What is the Mega Drive Mini 2?

Apart from Sega’s decision to practically combine two retro systems into one, as the successor to the Genesis Mini, Mega Drive Mini 2 has undergone some hardware changes. Although visibly smaller than the first version, the console is more powerful, benefiting from an improved card performance, increased memory and two sound sources. In keeping with the wide selection of games, users will be able to choose between FM and PSG sounds. The issue with the MODE button has also been resolved, allowing players to adjust the functionality of the button to their liking.


Like its predecessor, the upcoming mini console will be powered by a micro USB cable while outputting 720p resolution via HDMI. While the interface will feature familiar quick save slots and couch co-op, Sega’s second iteration of the Miniature Genesis will only feature a single controller. Fortunately, Mega Drive Mini 2’s masterful design and impeccable attention to detail ensure that the original USB controllers remain compatible with the device alongside new and old cosmetic add-ons.

While there’s no indication when or if the Mega Drive Mini 2 will eventually be released as the Sega Genesis 2 in North America, gamers interested in purchasing the system can look to select Japanese retailers for it. ‘import. Since the number of units available is limited, the rarity is likely to hurt the upgraded version of the original Genesis Mini. Even if Sega decides to expand the console’s availability in an international market, fans can expect to see an overhaul of the current game lineup, as a number of titles would not make the transition overseas in due to potential licensing issues and regional exclusivity.


Every game confirmed for the Mega Drive Mini 2

During the official reveal, Sega revealed that 50 games would be preloaded with Mega Drive Mini 2, some of which were only released in Japan. The fact that the system will house both Mega Drive and Mega-CD titles is perhaps the most shocking aspect, especially since the Sega CD was something of an obscure add-on that didn’t appeal to many. attention at the time. In addition to the addition of several unique entries, the available games are likely to display a 50:50 aspect ratio.

Of the 11 titles announced, sonic the hedgehog makes its appearance in its CD format. The rest of the Mega-CD range includes Silpheeda space-themed shooter with pre-rendered polygons and backgrounds.

Meanwhile, Popful Mail added more variety to the action-packed Sega CD entries with its platform design and RPG elements.


One of the first two-player arcade games, Bonanza Brothers, was included in the Mega Drive portion of the reveal. Alongside a popular first-person RPG, shine in the darkness, Thunder Force IV also made the cut, delighting fans with NEO GEO shooters and graphics left, right, and center. The arcade entrance powered by SVP, Virtual racesurprised players almost as much as Magic Tarurutoa side-scrolling platformer from the creators of Pokemon, whose grand debut was first captured on the Famicom (NES) and Game Boy. However, undoubtedly the most exciting part of the announcement was the special port of Fantastic areaa multi-directional arcade shooter previously unavailable on both featured platforms.

Following Sega’s promise to deliver multiple releases in 2022, the reveal of the Mega Drive Mini 2 comes four years after the 2018 reveal of the first Mega Drive Mini, also known as the Sega Genesis Mini in North America. At an initial cost of $79.99, the first Mega Drive Mini was only half the size of the original Sega Genesis, but included 42 selectable games with replica full-size USB controllers. It was released in September 2019 to overwhelmingly positive reviews, with critics praising its stable emulation, great selection of classics, and true-to-original design.


Originally released in 1988, the Sega Genesis was Sega’s third console and the 16-bit successor to its 1985 console, the Master System. Although underperforming in Japan due to Nintendo’s SNES and NEC’s TurboGrafx-16, the console enjoyed major success in North America, Europe and Brazil, selling 30.75 million units worldwide. . This is partly due to several factors, including its large library of arcade game ports, advertising aimed primarily at young people, and the huge success of the ever-popular sonic the hedgehog series, which awaits a new release in 2022.

Over time, the Genesis has become a favorite of many collectors, due to its still relatively cheap price and cult classics such as the atmospheric Ecco the dolphin and the very strange Moonwalker by Michael Jackson. However, gamers can also sigh in relief, as many of these classics are now available to play digitally on the Nintendo Switch. Surprisingly, while the Genesis would be replaced by the commercially unsuccessful Sega Saturn in 1994, it is still a resounding success in Brazil, selling an incredible 150,000 units per year as of 2016.

It is currently unknown if the Mega Drive Mini 2 will be released outside of Japan.
