Synology Announces New Solid State Line and Massive All Flash NAS!

Yes, I'm a few days late on this, but that's not important. What is important is that Synology has released a new SATA and M.2 NVME line of storage as well as a new line of flash based enbterprice storage. While we are super interested in the storage, the Xeon powered Flashstation 3600 looks ready to handle just about anything.... if your wallet can handle it!

Kickstarter for The Wonderful 101 Remastered

While I normally don't agree with crowdfunding from established companies and publishers, for this I can make an exception. While they already smashed through their modest goal almost 10x over, this remaster of the Wii U classic is a few dollars away from a PS4 release (strech goal was hit as I typed this) and is already landing on the Switch physically and Steam. There are a few other stretch goals that have yet to be announced. Also one of the rewards is to be "Blocked on Twitter by Kamiya", which can be obtained for free by asking him a stupid question on twitter...or confusing him for someone else on Twitter.... Or asking for a follow up of a game he mail while at another company..... or thanking him on a game he didn't work on.... or just about anything!

Either way, many people did not get to play this gem on the Wii U since people hated the Wii U without trying it and this is a great way to rectify that mistake.

Jim Power Kickstarter

NES version

While not many of you may know this, but there is a Jim Power Kickstarter for release on the NES, Genesis, SNES, Amiga CD-32 and TG-16 CD! While the Snes, Amiga and PC-Engine versions already exist, the Genesis version never was completed, the CD-32 gets the PC-Engine soundtrack, the TG-16 CD was a Japan exclusive and the NES is a brand new port!

As of this post, the game is a bit more that $300 away from it's goal!

Terraonion's MegaSD Lets You Play Sega CD Games Without A Sega CD!

Terraonion, makers of pricey but really awesome flash devices for the Neo-Geo and TG-16/PC Engine have just released their latest device and it's VERY awesome indeed. The simply named "Mega SD" allows you to play Sega Genesis/Mega Drive, Sega/Mega CD, Master System and 32X rom files. Even more mind-bending, CD games DO NOT require the Sega CD add-on. That means if you have JUST a Genesis then you can play Sega CD games. 32X games do require a 32X unit. Also, from online reports, it seems CD emulation is broken with the 32X at the moment, so no 32X CD games yet.

The "Mega SD" can be purchased from Terraonion's site
