Heh, I got banned from Bing Rewards because I was using a script to visit random sites and boost my points. No regerts, though... I sure as hell wasn't going to use it as my main search engine. They literally had to pay me to use Bing, and now that they won't, there's no point in using it.

What would you want specifically? I'd like access to Capcom vs. SNK 2, myself, but it was never available for the Xbox 360 so I'm not hopeful it'll appear here.

I see Pound is using Konami's old logo. Someone ought to, I guess.

Okay, credit where credit is due... it looks very good. The ColecoVision's higher resolution really sharpens up the graphics, making it look like the excellent Commodore 64 version.

Well, THAT was a surprise. The game runs really smoothly, which is great, but the sound effects lack punch, which is less great. The voice sounds pretty constipated, and it's got the same issue with sudden changes in tone that the sound samples from MAME had. Now I get why they left the voice out of other conversions.
