    Does this mean Zero Wing is getting a new physical release?

    I hope they don't run it into the ground, though with all of the fodder they've been shoveling out lately, maybe they're already heading that way.
    A Black Falcon: no, computer games and video games are NOT the same thing. Video games are on consoles, computer games are on PC. The two kinds of games are different, and have significantly different design styles, distribution methods, and game genre selections. Computer gaming and console (video) gaming are NOT the same thing."

    They also bought Lord of the Rings. All of it, not just games rights but ownership of the IP itself.

    There was a kickstarter for a documentary about the history of Toaplan last year. Apparently it was a success and the movie is currently in production.

    So apparently developer Bitwave Games announced an arcade release of Zero Wing and Out Zone for Steam. Apparently the developer is "looking into" including the Genesis intro in some fashion.

    I only have the Japanese Mega Drive cart, not the Euro version, so I don't get that infamous Engrish "all your base" intro. Such a shame. Still a sweet shoot 'em up though. I really dig it.
