Twinkle Star Sprites

I got pretty excited this morning when I read the news that the Neo-Geo game Twinkle Star Sprites was just released on Steam. The game is a competitive, vertical shoot 'em up. As you shoot down chains of enemies on your side of the screen, the player on the other side of the screen has to deal with an increased difficulty level. The graphics are super cute and the gameplay is addictive. But the Neo-Geo arcade cartridge goes for $300 and the Neo-Geo home version goes for as much as a used car. So this PC version seemed like a steal. While I haven't been able to try it out, my hopes were dashed when I looked into the development of the port, which was done by a company called DotEmu. This group has a pretty bad track record for porting Neo-Geo games to PC. Maybe this will be the exception to the rule?

    Last year, Takara made an amazing Transformer out of a pun, mashing up the big bad guy, Megatron, with Sega's 16-bit Mega Drive. And while it was nowhere near as punny, they followed it up with a Playstation-based Optimus Prime. But they stopped there.

    Sanrio had a booth at NYCC but it was pretty much empty. There were a few pieces under glass, such as their collaboration with Chocolate Skateboards, but didn't have anything for sale.
