Here's a well overdue Rumor Mill. Unfortunately, theserver problems didn't allow for a scheduled Rumor Mill lastWednesday, or even the Week In ReView last Sunday. Luckily,those problems are all in the past now, and we'll get upto speed with the regularly scheduled features on the site.The first rumor I can let you guys know is that the Rumor Mill may turn bi-weekly, or maybe I add in aTuesday feature called "The Rumor ReView" in which I willrevise all the Rumors that have been mentioned in theRumor Mills, and give an update on them. I'm trying to haveone feature for each of day of the week. I already haveanother one that I'll try to get going on Monday. As always,suggestions arewelcomed. On with the rumors...

This is not much of a Rumor, but rather an exclusivelook at another game that has been added to Raine. Maybeyou didn't know this, or maybe you don't even know aboutthis game, I know I hadn't heard of it before. The nameof the game is "Pon Poko Don". This game is a very colorfultwo player platform game. Well, just look at it yourself.Screen Shot 1

Screen Shot 9As you can see by looking at the last few shots, thisgame features a rotation layer, which should be a pain toemulate, but its already working. Kudos to Richard Bushand the Raine team on wonderful accomplishments over thepast year. Rumor has it that the next Raine release willhappen when they round off the number of games emulated.Do you need to guess what that number is?
Well, we all know about NeoCharity, the site thatdevoted itself to Neo Geo ROM dumping and sound fixes forthe last couple of months. There is a rumor that anothersimilar site will be setting shop. This site, will beknown as TurboCharity, and if you guessed right, you knowit's going to be about dumping Turbografx ROMs. Apparentlythere are over 150 Japanese HuCards that are still to bedumped. Look forward to that appearing fairly soon.
Well that's about I'll say in this edition, just wantedto get those Rumors out the door. I'll save some for nextWednesday. Remember, keep those suggestions coming fordaily features. I will take them all into consideration.Thanks for reading!
