Thought I'd wrap up Friday by giving you a homebrew to try this weekend. "Beats of Rage" is based on the 16-bit Genesis game Streets of Rage, Sega's then answer to Final Fight. Off topic - I remember Sega trying to pass off this game as having more moves than Final Fight when it was really just slightly different sprites when you button-pound: still pointing the LAME finger at ya! Ok back to this -- it's S.O.R. remastered completely with the graphics come from NeoGeo's King of Fighters (a Street Fighter 2 clone most of us have long blocked out). The project is extremely polished and the gameplay is totally solid retro bliss - and best of all it's a sweet, free download for choice of PC, Dreamcast, PSP, PS2, XBOX & more consoles! Check out screenshots and download it here PSP + 360 builds are apparently also in the works - check out the forums to see their other projects and updates
