Created by the Evil Overlord himself, this thread can only mean we're all just a short time away from getting our AVS orders from RetroUSB. Here's what Dain had to say about this long awaited project...
"We've been working on this for years now, on and off... We have several other areas in the works, but they're not ready for primetime... We have new areas for clans, achievements, and contests, and some social-media-like features where you can follow and be followed, etc. Those will likely get finished up sometime this winter or as time permits... We are also adding the ability to self-submit scores for personal tracking (these would not be counted in the overall rankings) and we've toyed with the idea to allow for scores to be submitted on behalf of someone via a scoring judge. The sky is the limit here realistically, so it should be fun to see where this goes from here."
If you want to give your input on the scoreboard, come on over and join in on the conversation. Get in on the ground floor and let the developers know what you'd like to see!
That's right folks, years of waiting are about to come to fruition and this is the beginning of the end. Honestly, I'm so excited I'm not even sure what to put here! The packaging is beautiful, the clear case is fantastic, and it's going to come with a wireless controller.
To reserve your number, he's doing requests in four rounds. Round One you'll need to get out your other NES competition carts, because bunnyboy is taking orders based on previous numbers, going in this order of priority: NAHBWC, NANWC, NWC, and finally NCC.Round 2 starts now! You'll need one of the carts/items listed here: Gold Airball, Gold NCC, Glider Special Edition, Golden Ticket, SPPC Special Edition, or Special NESnake 2.Round 3 starts now! If you have any homebrew that was originally published in 2009 or earlier, post a picture in the thread (not a link) showing you playing the cart (NES with cart, tv, you all in the picture) and which number you want.
And it sounds like any unclaimed number will be open for anyone. Payment of $650 to be made through RetroUSB.com, so start saving that disposable income!
Here's what you'll be getting!
AVS in clear case with black buttons and gold label
Handmade traditional Japanese wood toolbox, big enough to hold AVS + gamepads + games
Hard cover AVS history book with photos from development
