Did I hear correctly that the bombcast email changed? What is it now?

I'm looking for a late 80s/early 90s arcade brawler. It features a couple of kids on rollerskates as the main characters and they fight through a run-down urban environment. Racial stereotypes abound. I believe American Sammy had some involvement. Thanks for the help!

Thanks guys! The pre-order was up in March last year and it just took forever to ship. It was $490 shipped. This is the special edition; there is a regular retail edition that doesn't include Old Snake, and I think doesn't light up, but is otherwise the same.

Hey Bombers! If you're in the San Francisco Bay Area on Thursday night you should check out Ümloud, hosted by Tim Schafer! It's a big Rock Band party at the DNA Lounge in San Francisco and it benefits the Child's Play charity.

I'm putting this on the boards now because I have 5 codes for comp tickets to give away, and I thought the Giant Bomb community would be a great place to bring them! The tickets will get you in the doors, and from there you'll be able to participate in the raffles, silent auctions, game demos, and see all the awesome Rock Band 3 performances onstage, which is where my band, Supercollider will be!

It's a fun night that benefits Child's Play, and I want to give these tickets to some Bombers who will enjoy themselves. If you want a ticket code, and you can make it to the DNA Lounge in San Francisco for the show, send me a PM. The doors open at 7 and the show is adults only (because they serve booze at the bar.) I'll give out the codes first-PM-first-serve. and please only ask for a code if you can actually make it to the event. Even if you just want to know more about Ümloud you can PM me, or check out Umloud.org through your searchable web-browsing portal of choice.

See you there! \m/ >_< \m/

What are you supposed to do with Google maps on a system that doesn't leave your house?

I'm pretty sure it was Super Mario Bros.

Seriously: both! Microsoft and Sony both had their own strengths and their own lessons to learn this generation, and I think where they take that will be very interesting. Though the collection of Rock Band songs on my 360 is a pressing issue...

Plenty, and I think the rest of the year will be great for it. There'snot a lot I'm looking forward to until 2013, so it's a good time to go back.

I bought Wizorb because it was awesome and well-recommended (thanks, Patrick.) But most of the good ones have better versions on iOS or Steam.
