NES Wheel of Infinite Fortune

I love stuff like this 🙂

Chris Beaumont has hacked the NES version of Wheel of Fortune for the Nintendo Entertainment System to replace the out-of-date questions with a more modern batch.

People have of course done this before for other titles on different platforms (updating teams in Pro Evolution Soccer 6 on the PS2, etc), and it makes so much sense if the game engine still holds up.

If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it (or rather… just update it).

NES30 bluetooth gamepad

I’m a sucker for most things NES-related as it’s the first games console I ever owned. I enjoy touchscreen gaming to an extent although it remains heavily dependent on the type of game and how effectively the developers have implemented the controls.

I might not have to worry about all that much longer… as I’ve ordered an NES30 bluetooth gamepad! There’s a pretty comprehensive review of the NES30 over at gameusagi.com. It looks great and if it enables me to play games on my iPad, Android Nexus 7 and the 5.5 inch iPhone 6 later on this year (!) then it’ll be well worth the investment.

Once it arrives I’ll do a review.
