  1. Hey Guys, Fall Out Games in Arizona has posted a picture online of their new HDMI consoles. This could be a Game Changer. For future tourneys if these turn out to work and are cheap. As we all know collecting and storing CRT’s is a big issue and most new esports spaces are all HD. I’m getting a Gens shipped up to me ASAP for testing. I’m pretty excited. Fall Out Games has been helping me out with the Doc from the very beginning. Their manager Scott D. Has been a huge help in making the doc and providing me with games and consoles for the King of 94 Tournaments. Kof94 1 would have not happened with out Scott’s last minute help getting me all the original hardware (7 gens and 7 snes) Air freighted from AZ to Toronto just in time for game day. They have made affordable NES and SNES consoles in the past but not in HD. I begged them to make an HD Gens last time i was in Phoenix, have my prayers been answered????? What’s your guys thoughts on going HD? EDIT: I JUST GOT WORD THAT THE GENS WILL RETAIL FOR $30!!!!

    Doc Update :)

    Hey Players! Its been a while but I finally have some news about Pixelated Heroes release. A few weeks ago I was approached by a start-up streaming service (in Silicon Valley) about doing an online Aviation News show (much like Philip DeFranco on Youtube). As we were in talks I mentioned Pixelated Heroes and I sent them the screener we have seen in Vegas and they loved it. My original goal was to get PH on a major streaming service and to be honest I have been so busy at work that it fell by the wayside. I burnt myself out getting the film ready for Vegas and needed a break, that's why I have been away from the community. But know I'm reset and ready to start a new game lol. The new company submitted me their offer to stream Pixelated Heroes yesterday, It is not a lot of money and by no means covers the production cost. But what they are offering that no one else would do, is to take my 4 Terabytes of extra footage and make it into enough small videos to make years worth of content to stream regularly. I believe this is the best for everyone, as a lot of you spent your time helping me out and I would hate for the footage to be lost on a hard drive on my shelf (there is a lot of cool stuff and stories). Including full interviews with the producers and programmers. So basically, they will stream the finished full-length Pixelated Heroes on their new site. Then produce smaller videos from my footage and release them on a regular basis. All of this will be on a custom page so its all in one area. And who knows maybe we will do a sequel! I will for sure let you guys know more about the company and our plan once the deal is signed. But for now, keep your sticks on the ice. Cheers, Mikey

    Doc Update :)

    Hi Aqualizard! I will answer all of your questions as soon as I have more info and a deal in place bud. But in short My movie will stand and they will produce new content with the raw footage. DVD's are still up in the air at this point as it will most likely lose money and it may be better to have all the content Online instead.
  4. Hey Guys, Well, the film is coming along very good. We are a little bit under budget and a little bit ahead of schedule. The editor and I have spent the last week turning the rough cut into our first Fine cut. That means the film is in a state now where there is nothing really missing and it's in the order we think is the most logical/entertaining. We have some cool animations and "cutaways" that were made by local artists up here and really gives the story a lot of humor. We have 8-bit animation, 3d style diorama sets, and some classic cartoon animation. Also, we have 4 versions of the Sega theme made to put throughout the film (think of the sad version of "America, f**k Ya" in Team America. My question is a need some footage ripped from NHL 2003. It's some specific shots and I'm wondering if anyone here has the tech to do it. Send me an email mikeymcbryan@gmail.com if someone can help out. I need only a few seconds of it. Anyhow, I hope everone is enjoying summer and the playoffs. I'll update more as the film progresses. Cheers, Mikey
  5. Hi Guys, I have made contact and planning to interview Amory Wong the Lead programmer for the SNES version of NHL '94. So once again I'm asking you guys if there is any questions you want me to ask. It my not make the final cut of the film, but at least it mite get into the Special Features on the Bluray/DVD. So what would you like to know? Cheers, Mikey PS; The questions you guys had for Jim Simmons was a huge help to me
  6. Hey Guys i'm working on writing the story right now. Its going great! I was just thinking of what things are you guys are looking forward to seeing in this film?

    Open NHL'94

    The access to competitive NHL '94 has to involve or it will die out. Emulators and desktop/laptop are dying as well. I haven't played a single game of NHL '94 online. So I'm no expert on that process but until you can play NHL '94 on a tablet or phone (with a USB controller or keyboard) you will, of course, see a decline. I have tons of experience with network television and there biggest threat and what will kill them, in the end, is streaming services (NETFLIX). In a way, NHL94.com has the same problem. What worked for to play 94 five to ten years ago is becoming obsolete. There are thousands of people out there that want to play NHL '94 but the access is limited as you have to have computer knowledge to play. If this game was on the PlayStation network and playable though modern consoles, you would have almost unlimited competition and the talent of players would be insane. So the answer might be as simple as to convince EA Sports to re-release the game online. A simple www.change.org might be all that it takes to get the puck rolling. This might sound stupid at first but at least this is a free option. It's not the game that's dying its the medium at which its played on. Resist, M

    Open NHL'94

    I think premium is right. The only thing I would add is the ability to host the game in the cloud. So you play with a browser (not with an emulator). Then you get rid of lag and it would be easy to connect online, even play with your phone (if you wanted to). NHL '94 game server that can host online tourneys and keep track of players stats automatically, just like any game that is made new today. So then aqua is also right... build the exact clone (or use the normal code as much as possible) and make it work on a modern engine to run it on a server. The game is so small and straight forward compared to today's online games.

    Buying Original Genesis Hardware

    I buy all my stuff from Fall Out Games in Pheonix AZ. Even tho it's crazy far away from me, its the cheapest and best quality. It's where I got all the systems for KO94 (7 Gens / 7 Snes) and all the cables and controllers all pre-tested. Scott Doss who is a manager there is a huge NHL'94 fan and has been helping me out with the doc from the early days. http://www.falloutgames.net/
  12. "Given the dates, my guess is that that was a game for Sony since Park Place was out of the EA fold by then and had been signed by Sony for a bunch of titles for the early PlayStation. A disaster, that's another story." From Michael Brooks
  13. Interesting I never came across any info on this game when I was reaching Park Place Productions. I sent out some feelers to my contacts to see if they have any more info.
  14. Hey Guys, I'm back in the editing suite this month. (had to take Jan/Feb off due to the editors schedule). I'm Just throwing this out there. I have a list of NHL '94 and NHLPA '93 gameplay shots I need for the film. Mostly 5 to 10 seconds of specific in-game events. For an example "Gretzky's head bleeding" and "Glass Breaking" kind of shots. I was hoping someone on the Fourm here could help out. The footage can be dumped with the use of an emulator and in as high resolution as possible. I can provide a shot list and the timeline I will need them by is about 4 weeks. As payment, I can offer you something very very special a signed copy of NHL '94 by Mark Lesser also IMDB Credit and your name in the movies credits. If anyone can help with this just let me know in the thread or email me at mikeymcbryan@gmail.com Cheers, Mikey
