Well, this week things are back to normal, and thatmeans a Rumor ReView is in place for today, and what aday it has been. A lot of updates already, the new screenshots are flying in like crazy (some games have morethan one!), and anticupid got ahead of me and publishedhis Rumor ReView at the EV Board. He does quite a good job,but I must do a ReView here officially. Maybe I shouldhire him, don't you think? Well, lets cut the chase andget to the games.Let's see, what has been cooking here for a while.We have some burned Rumors that I will discard as nothappening since they have been with us for a whileand they don't seem to be coming true anytime soon:Snes9X Cheat finder

Namco 3D Board Emu
Nemu64 not faster than UltraHLE
Nofrendo 1.0"Unusual Raine Games" will eventually happen, but Iwill discard it, since it willbe a while until it happens, and it makes no sense tokeep mentioning it every week.
There are still some others that I still have faiththat will come true pretty soon or that I get updatesevery once in a while. For example, what seems to be themost popular Rumor is the Dynamic Recompilationi basedWilliams Emu. Many people would like to play Mortal Kombatand NBA Jam on their machines, and this could possibly makeit a reality. I haven't heard anything new about it, otherthan that there may be two of them! Other pending rumors are the Ricardo Bitencourt unknown emu.
Now, getting into the confirmed arena, I would consider the"Pit Fighter" and "Hydra" rumor to be confirmed, consideringthe source that got me the pics. They may be consideredpending since they are not in MAME yet, but believe me,it's a definite go.
Also, the "Time Soldiers" rumor got confirmed in today'sMAME WIP update where you can see some pics of the game in action along with pics from another hot game, "Sky Soldier".
Well that's all for now. I've been pretty much settlednow, with updates resuming their regular fashion. So expecta good Rumor Mill tomorrow, as some of my birds have alreadygathered at my window with their reports. Thanks for reading!
