    I have a proper, full-sized Mortal Kombat machine in my living room, but I will be the first in line to get the Arcade1Up version the moment it gets dolleyed off the truck. That lineup of new announcements is stellar (note Karate Champ has Burgertime, which should have been the marquee title of that set imo). At the last CES someone took a pic of what looks like an NBA Jam cab inside the Arcade1Up VIP room (see below). Rumors are that The Simpsons, X-Men, and Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: The Arcade Game will be included as well. People are expecting a slightly larger control deck to accommodate 4 players as the Rampage cab supports 3 and the formfactor is pushed well to its limits there. Some people have modded Rampage A1U cabs to play NBA Jam and have opted to add a USB port to the front of the unit to accept standard controllers, so that's a solution that might work too. Regardless, that one is definitely going in the collection when it hits. The trackball on the Golden Tee is a proper Happ unit. Expect it to last through the zombie apocalypse. I picked up 3 units to have in the game room, complete with risers, Rampage, Street Fighter 2, and Centipede. Arcade1Up sent replacement deck graphics and plexiglass covers within a few weeks free of charge (as the units were new, I didn't need to replace the graphics). I immediately replaced the ball top sticks on the SF2 cab with bat top because I'm not a heathen, but other than that they are all stock. I like them so much I might just go full-on crazy and line the other wall with a lot more of them. And if the rumors are true, I'm going to run out of space quickly. For people of a certain age, there's just something about walking into a room with upright arcade cabs. I am of that age.

    Fuck, now I know what's in the trailer. Just stop.

    Recently watched (and loved) Bodyguard, and as a result started Line of Duty last night. The first two episodes are incredible. I know I'm late to the party on this

    Add another voice for Russian Doll. Funny, dark, heart warming, cynical and optimistic all wrapped around some fun performances that manages to make the Groundhog Day formula work without feeling like a rip off. I also really enjoyed “You”. An utterly strange combination of Dexter and Mean Girls (as Carlos described it to me on Facebook and he was right). The main guy is a much clumsier Dexter like character but he’s creepy and strangely compelling. He’s also right more often than not about the things he’s saying so your equally repulsed by his actions but sort of rooting for him? Again, it’s fucking weird but it was far better than I thought it would be going in and we’ll worth your time.

    Placed my order for this today: https://www.retrousb.com/product_info.php?cPath=36&products_id=78 I debated getting a Hi-Def NES HDMI mod done but between the cost of the mod, the fee for installation and the fact that I would want to have it done with a top loader which I would have to buy, the cost would be nearly double the AVS NES which is an FPGA unit that’s highly regarded but a bit more limited than the Analogue NT. It’s also nowhere near the ridiculous cost. Ill post thoughts on it when it arrives at the end of the month. Here’s a review for those interested: Most of the mentioned issues have been taken care of via firmware now. Including adding an interpolation option and more. It’ll be wonderful to have a high quality vehicle to play my existing NES library and I’ll still have my front loader here which I may have RGB modded in the near future as that’s a relatively cheap board and a mod I think I can handle myself.

    Good comment-I think part of what's so notable about this is that it was announced/released on the same day, which almost never happens for something at this scale.

    Someone on blu-ray.com asked Arrow about that late last year, and their response was: And yeah, I've been wondering the same thing about anyone possibly getting Cameron to sign off on anything.

    I love, love, love Line of Duty. Don't read up on it, just watch all of it

    In the short preview that plays on AppleTV when you highlight a show, the GD aspect was made very apparent right off the bat.

    Well this is exciting news following Kino doing a UHD. Boutique UK label Second Sight revealed recently that they are working on a new Blu-ray of Dawn of the Dead and have just announced that they will also be releasing it on UHD! *looks sternly in Arrow's direction*

    Oh yes, please; a good quality copy of James Bond: Marble Staircase Shagger would do nicely.

    I've been wanting one of the niche labels to do a new scan of the Thomas Crown Affair remake as I think that's a cracking film with a very dated Blu-ray. An actual 4k release would be all the nicer if that's what Kino have next (but I'd still be perfectly happy with a new Blu). Kino ruled out Terminator some months ago saying another label had won a bid on it (wondering if Arrow got that too?).

    I preordered, but the demo isn't in my library, and even when I went online and found a link to it (the demo wasn't in my PSN Store, either) and "bought" it, it still doesn't show up in my library, despite having received my purchase receipts. I called Sony a couple of times, and they said they'd received a bunch of calls about the issue, but said they have nothing to do with it, and to contact Ubisoft. Of course, they have no telephone contact number and no live chat - just email communication. Whatever - it's disappointing because I'd love to tool around in the game for the weekend, but I know I'm buying the game, regardless.
