Yet Another New Chain and the Gang Record

MusicI just found out that after "Best of Crime Rock" a couple of months ago and "Experimental Music" last week, Chain and the Gang also released Live at Third Main Records at some point in the last few weeks. On top of this front man Ian Svenonious is also releasing "Escape-Ism" this year.

The live record doesn't seem available from Third Man yet, but I saw it on Discogs, Amazon, and elsewhere for $12-$13. The song listing is pretty close to "Best of Crime Rock." It's missing "Nuff Said" and "Deathbead Confession,"

NYCC - Massive Transformers News Dump, New Toy Too

TransformersThursday was surprising. HasbroToyShop posted Transformers Titans Return Grotusque 3-figure Pack and it sold out rather quickly at $24.99. We were told Toys R Us may have more shortly.

TFormers and other sites posted news from New York Comic Con showcasing the Terrorcons in color, the combined Volcanicus Dinobot team, Rodimus Unicronus, as well as other new small toys - and a Predaking tease.

New Japanese Transformers Listings

TransformersVia BWTF.com: Toy News: Official images and listings for LG-EX Grand Maximus & Greatshot, or "You don't want that $400, do you?"

Greatshot is a Sixshot retool with a winged rhino mold. Really. The robot looks vastly different and it's beautiful, also $80ish. Grand Maximus is a decked out Fort Max redeco with the sword and even a Pretender shell. Maybe. This is unclear. It'll be closer to $240. Factor in shipping and import fees, and well, it's gonna be pricey if you go for these - neither are known to be planned for the USA.

New Hitchhiker's Guide Radio Shows Coming to BBC

MusicVia Sci-Fi Bulletein: More Hitchhiker's Guide for 2018. Despite spending the last decade and change dead for tax purposes, Douglas Adams managed to appear briefly in a series of radio dramas released in 2005 based on his final books. Additional books in his canon have been written by others, and now they're getting radio adaptations in 2018. Here's a quote with the stuff that matters:

"Across six episodes, Simon Jones will reprise his role as the main protagonist, the quintessentially English Arthur Dent, as he continues to travel through space and time following the destruction of Earth. Starring alongside Simon will be members of the classic radio, television and stage casts, including Geoff McGivern as Ford Prefect, Mark Wing-Davey as Zaphod Beeblebrox and Sandra Dickinson as Trillian, as well as special guest stars including Jane Horrocks as Fenchurch. Following in the footsteps of the late Peter Jones and William Franklyn, Douglas Adams' friend, co-author and former flatmate John Lloyd will step into the the voice of The Book."

New Mummy Demastered Game "Based" on 2017 Tom Cruise Movie

Video GamesVia many: The Mummy Demastered takes the word ŌMetroidvania' one step further. WayForward is talking up their adaptation of this year's big shared universe flop, The Mummy, which actually looks awesome. The 2D not-quite-Turrican seems to share a villain and colors with the movie, and little else.

With big bugs and monsters, it seems to have a lot in common with the wackier 8-bit and 16-bit adaptations of games in the NES, Super NES, and Genesis libraries - except this time, it might actually be really fantastic. WayForward gave us Contra 4 on the Nintendo DS, plus a lot of other really good retro-ish games.

New Games for the Xbox One

Xbox OneShinyXbox fans, it's time to try Shiny. Microsoft says:

"Left to fend for himself after mankind abandoned the doomed planet Aurora, robot Kramer 227 must find a way to harvest energy and rescue his robotic friends before Aurora crashes into its sun. In his journey, Kramer will probe the planet itself and overcome challenging obstacles, all while trying to conserve his limited life energy to power himself and his friends on their way to safety. Kramer will gather and share energy with his fellow robots, helping them escape dire situations and predicaments. He will have to jump and explore every platform in every corner of the 20 extensive levels to find all of his friends. Energy is running low on Aurora, so Kramer will have to collect batteries or use generators to recharge, as every action drains his power. Various power-ups collected along the way, such as jetpacks, energy spheres and temperature regulators, can help him on this crucial journey. Shiny is about saving lives, so it contains no blood or violence."

Analogue Super NT - HDMI Super NES Clone

NintendoThe makers of the very expensive, $450 Analogue NT have announced the much-cheaper Super NT, a 1080p Super NES clone of seemingly high quality. Unlike the Super NES Classic you can't find that has signs in every store announcing its non-availability, this includes no games for the price. If you have a pile of cartridges, this may be a viable option.

The good news is that it's much cheaper than their NES - the Super NT is $189.99. The bad news, no controller is included - but there are legacy ports to use your old, working controllers. Provided you didn't smash them to bits in the late 1990s. Is it worth the asking price? Maybe, maybe not.

Xbox OneDungeons 3Xbox fans, it's time to try Dungeons 3. Microsoft says:

"At last, the Dungeon Lord has successfully united the forces of evil and established his dark empire. Time for the next step in his most diabolical quest: expansion! Through enticing the dark elf priestess Thalya from the fluffy clutches of the surface world to become his chief lieutenant, the Dungeon Lord has found a way to direct his campaign of conquest from the confines of his underground lair. With Thalya on the front line, and the united forces of evil to support her, players will have to use every trick in the book to best those do-gooders of the overworld, once and for all! Unleash your dark side by creating a unique underground dungeon from a huge array of rooms, traps and structures. Raise the most terrifying army the world has ever seen, by choosing from despicable creatures such as orcs, succubae, zombies and much, much more. Then, once you have built your forces, emerge from the darkness and guide your army to the light of the overworld, where you will corrupt the land and dispatch anything even vaguely heroic, cute or unicorn-shaped. And in a first for the Dungeons series, experience randomly generated levels, so that no two sessions are alike - never-ending fun for any evil conqueror!"

Super NT to Include New Super Turrican, Old Super Turrican

NintendoSuper TurricanVia many: Analogue's Super Nt comes with two SNES games, including a 'Director's Cut', the other game being the standard version of Super Turrican.

The Super NT is the fancy-pants high-end HDMI Super NES clone coming early next year, potentially a good substitute for the Nintendo mini console if you a) have cartridges still and b) can't find the new mini console. Why is this Turrican thing interesting, though? One, you get a fake box (but no cartridge) for the built-in games. Two, it was developed for Nintendo's Virtual Console service - but Nintendo rejected it on account of not being a legitimate "vintage" game, which was a requirement at the time. Their loss!

New Games for the Xbox One

Xbox OneThe Mummy DemasteredXbox fans, it's time to try The Mummy Demastered. Microsoft says:

" A powerful ancient evil has arisen, and the war to save humanity has begun! The Mummy Demastered throws you into a 16-bit-inspired battle against the undead in a 2D, nonlinear, action-packed adventure. As an elite agent in the monster-hunting Prodigium organization, you must use a variety of weapons, upgrades, and magical artifacts to defend mankind against the supernatural hordes of Princess Ahmanet. Your Prodigium teammates are already on the scene, but HQ lost contact with them hours ago; only by exploring tombs, forests, abandoned tunnels, and the cursed streets of London will you discover the fate of your allies. But beware - Ahmanet commands legions of zombies, insects, plague-ridden vermin, and worse... and if you're not careful, you'll be the next soul in Ahmanet's thrall."

Also available: RUGBY 18 Day One Edition, Just Dance 2018, The Inner World Š The Last Wind Monk, Rapala Fishing: Pro Series, We Sing Pop, Deer Hunter: Reloaded, Van Helsing: Double Pack, Real Farm, and ACA NEOGEO ROBO ARMY.

Jim Broadbent Cast as New Marvin Voice

MusicWhile not music, this is pretty close. RadioTimes says Jim Broadbent, Lenny Henry and Ed Byrne cast in new The HitchhikerÕs Guide to the Galaxy radio series. That's a pretty big deal.

Marvin's voice has almost always (or has always) been Stephen Moore, who has retired and apparently won't do it again. A pity.
