    Yeah quite a bit. According to the stats I’ve played over 6 days! Oh well, if I ever wonder where my life went at least I’ll know.

    I don't think they will touch the code for any game. It will be ancient code and it would require retesting. I can't see that happening, but would love to be proved wrong. Can you 'pull the score out' without changing the game code? Ballon fight has proper local multiplayer, so there is a point there... For games without local multiplayer (e.g. Zelda), they are going with 'pass the pad'. Both players see the game and you can switch who is controlling it.

    Can we talk about online multiplayer for old Nintendo games? On the face of it, quite an exciting prospect given how many great local multiplayer games they have. If this eventually comes to SNES games (Super Mario Kart), then we have a winner. I suspect that they are doing 'emulator level' multiplayer support so that they don't need to recode / recompile the games. This is like the old ZSNES emulator feature where one computer is the main player and the other computer is the second joypad. If this is the case, then sadly we don't get features like online leaderboards, because this would require a code change to the game. How well does this kind of multiplayer work? Is it laggy? My conspiracy is that they have tried to get this working for SNES / N64 / GC but they can't get it working at an acceptable performance level. So they have decided to release it only for NES games where the lag doesn't really matter.

    They are using the back catalogue to sell the subscription service. Starting small with NES to test the market. If it doesn’t sell, they will gradually add enough games until it is an irresistible prospect. They are going to want the vast majority of the user base on this service, otherwise they are restricting the player base for online games.

    Race A in the ‘72 Alpine is fantastic. Great for learning to drive without traction control. I think the penalty system is very fair and is better now than it has ever been. I’ve done 170 odd races and only very rarely have I been penalised when it wasn’t my fault.

    Good plan. Tsukuba might be worth a try in that little beast.

    So last week was not one of our best. But tonight’s going to be amazing right? Who’s with me?

    Had a quick go. Seems buggy. Has a weird 0% progress thing that fails each time I boot the game. And have had 2 other crashes plus other weirdness in about an hour. On the positive side, the Red Bull Junior is a delight around Tsukuba.
