All you need to do is sign up on, they'll send you a confirmation e-mail, and then you can download.

Street Fighter 2: An Oral History

I came across this article a few days ago, and it's a really interesting read. Basically it's like a series of interviews with many of the people involved with Street Fighter 2. There are all sorts of stories shared about how the game was developed and gives a bit of insight into the people who were behind the development of the game.

It's well worth a read if you get the chance to sit down and need something to read.

Back In My Play's Look At The Omega CMVS (Consolized MVS)

Saw this posted over on Bordersdown's forums a bit earlier today.

Basically Youtube user Back In My Play has posted up a couple of videos with his hands on review of the Omega CMVS unit which is made by Arcadeworks.

It looks really lush, and it's designed to resemble an AES unit. Looking at their website it appears you can buy two models, one with a virtual memory card installed and one without.

It outputs either via RGB scart, composite or component and I believe the cost for each cable is an additional $15 each.

Looks really nice, and although I don't particularly need a CMVS (as I already have one back in the UK) it might be interesting to those out there who are still looking to dive into the world of MVS.

It's pretty pricey at about $500 but it looks like it's a quality piece of kit. Also it should be worth noting that like many people who own an MVS will tell you, it's a lot cheaper in the long run when you're paying for MVS carts as opposed to AES.
