Of Gods and human-wolf hybrids...
A couple of rather interesting MSU-1 audio enhancement patches released this week. The first is one of the most often requested patches ever since byuu released the chip itself, while the second will surely bring fond memories to Commodore Amiga and Atari ST owners. ActRaiser remains a unique work of art; it...
What a horrible night to have digital audio
Alas, poor Castlevania: Dracula X (Vampire's Kiss in Europe). Despite the best Konami efforts to snugly fit all the brilliance of the original PC Engine CD title Castlevania: Rondo of Blood inside a Super Nintendo cartridge it was just not meant to be; the fact it was a step down in the controls...
Shmups! We love them and we are not shy to admit it.The Super Nintendo always fell short to the lush number of shmup offerings present on the PC Engine, Mega Drive and even the NES / Famicom. Yet whisper Axelay in the wind and a wave of awe will overcome everyone. However, today's news is in regard to another classic Konami shmup, the early...
It's dangerous to go alone, take this Hi Fi soundtrack
The Satellaview is one of the Holy Grails of any Super Nintendo aficionado. This accessory allowed Japanese players to download exclusive games and even play exclusive sessions with live narration on scheduled broadcasts way back in 1995. As one might imagine, most of these sessions were a one...
Pantless Knight with Hi-Fi Audio
Capcom's Super Ghouls'n Ghosts will always be a polarising title. A masterpiece of game design with impressive usage of the Super Nintendo's graphical and sound capabilities produced one of the system's finest exclusive games, but also one that challenges players with not one but two complete (rather hard)...
It's on like hi-fi Donkey Kong!
Rare's phenomenal Donkey Kong Country was quite the game changer in late 1994, not only giving an extra edge to the Super Nintendo in the 16-bit console war but also becoming one of the most cherished games in the entire SNES library. Despite the fancy ACM graphics, one of they key features that still resonates with...
Rescue the cave babes to new sounds
It seems like it was only yesterday we were reminiscing about Data East's original cave man ninja duo, and now news of a MSU1 audio enhancement patch by Kurrono Kei has dropped like one of the game's many pterodactyls after a good bashing. The Super Nintendo version of Joe & Mac was released back in 1991, the...
Koopa Troopa's supremacy remains unaffected by aural changes
It is hard to believe that just recently Super Mario Kart turned 25 years old. Even more unbelievable, in just one month there will be a new SNES console with the game out at retail, so we can take on those cups all over again. Dedicated Super Nintendo and MSU1 fans (a byuu-developed...
MSU1 Magic turns Quintet into full orchestra
Like everyone else we love the whole SNES Mini thing, but with a total of 21 games we also had to accept that many big names would be missing in action. One of biggest third-party producers missing is Quintet, which is surprising considering its incredibly prolific output during the SNES years, which...
