Mega Man 9 (ロックマン9 野望の復活!! Rokkuman 9: Yabō no Fukkatsu!! Rockman 9: The Ambition's Revival!!) is a platform game by Capcom. It is the latest game in the original Mega Man series, and the first numbered entry since 1996's Mega Man 8. Its existence was first hinted through the Australian OFLC ratings board, which listed the title on the site and classified it as multi-platform. The game is currently available for download on WiiWare and PlayStation Network and is scheduled to be released on Xbox Live Arcade.



Mega Man's creator Dr. Light is blamed for a robotic rapage and Dr. Wily himself has no apparent connection to it (even showing a video of Dr. Light declaring world domination and Wily refusing to follow him), announcing that he needs donations to complete the robots he created to combat those of Dr. Light. Mega Man must fight to prove his creator's innocence and expose Wily's true intentions.



Using Mega Man and Mega Man 2 as the main inspiration for the title, Mega Man lacks the Power Slide and Mega Buster featured in later games, although the game does feature items such as the Rush Coil, Rush Jet, and Beat. In a future add-on, Proto Man will be able to slide and charge up his buster.The game features several Challenges that require certain requirements to be met to be completed. Other features include a Time Attack mode and a shop where Mega Man can purchase items such as energy tanks, as well as bonus options such as removing his helmet.

FLYING LOTUS VIDEO - Parisian Goldfish


Directed by Eric Wareheim (Tim & Eric) in association with Warp Records and Warp Films. Music by Flying Lotus. Co Directed/ Animation by Devin Flynn. Co Directed/ Edited by Eric Fensler. For more info visit dancefloordale.com

Disclaimer: This video has Blinking/flashing lights and cartoon pornographic type images. Dont view this at work or if you are under 18.

The Video for Parisian Goldfish is dope, its not what I expected from Lotus but definitely fit the theme (Tim & Eric / Adult Swim) involvement is A nice touch. I love the fact that Flying Lotus doesn't just make music and rock shows, but he brings a whole brand or a whole theme of video's, artwork, promos all that are on some HobbyshopHero Iddish.... ... IF your not sure of what im getting at, click on the DESTROY link above..... The fact he ties his releases to entertaining and relevant marketing strategies is something I wish more artists would take advantage of. (it doesn't hurt he is surrounded by like minded talented individuals)
Peace to Lotus, He gets a lot of respect from US at THE HOBBYSHOP HERO - Another amazing producer I would recommend if you are a fan of Flying Lotus is my man, TAKE

The Nintendo Emulator for iPhone


  • Multitouch: Use the directional pad + A + B, or other combinations
  • Zapper Tap: Tap objects on the screen to shoot them
  • Full Screen: Enlarge your NES picture to the max possible
  • Save State: Save an instant snapshot of your game and come back to it later
  • Game Genie: Use Game Genie cheat codes
  • ... and many more

iPhone NES emulator 2.3.0 is available, so now you can play Mario anywhere you like, he..he.. Of course you need a jailbroken iPhone to install the iPhone NES emulator. Just in case you haven’t jailbreak your iPhone, you can use pwnage 2.0 if you got a Mac otherwise you can use this Windows Jailbreaker. Btw, you can download this NES Emulator for iPhone HERE.


When I first created THEHOBBYSHOPHERO - One of the 1st things I did was BURN a Hundred Data CD's full of NES/SNES/GENESIS/ETC EMULATORS & THOUSANDS of ROMS - I Packaged them nicely and included them in the orders I mailed out when people bought, JUNKPLANET & ALSO Project: REACH, I only did 1 run and decided I wanted to be more organized with my IDEAS, I mean..... my vision was large to begin with and I havent even scratched the surface of potential this has.

To be Honest, I dont have A IPHONE, I really dont like owning A Cellphone, but I definatly Dub this as Hobbyshop WORTHY. I still have those Emulators & ROMS if anyone is interested, they are pretty much available all over now, but if you wanna skip the search and have me Shoot em over, SEND an EMAIL to (ILOVEDUTCHMASSIVE@GMAIL.COM) and Titled the email. (8bitEmulators) and please Subscribe to this Blog or RSS FEED and tell a friend or 32 of em =)



I know how the WEB can be and how links can disappear and how some tutorials and some files work for one person but not another, or some info works for this computer but not the next, So I tried to post a few different sources and methods about this topic. I hope some of it helps. - THEHobbyshopHERO
  1. All you need is a Jailbroken iPod touch and a Wi-fi connection.
  2. First, install the NES emulator found in Installer.app
  3. Then, tap on installer.app, tap on Sources, tap on Edit (top right of screen), then tap on Add (top right of screen).
  4. Enter the following after http://
  5. markmon.mine.nu:90/iphone/repo/repo.plist
  6. Then go back to Install and install Bigboss' NES Roms package (found in the Games section).
  7. Then tap on NES on your homescreen. You will now have approx seventy ROMs (Mario, Zelda etc) ready to play, complete with game save feature.

This really has to be the easiest way to get ROMs onto your touch.




NES.app v1.8.0 - Nes Emulator for iPhone

Nervegas has released a new version of his Nes Emulator for the iPhone:

NES.app uses the popular InfoNES emulation core to mimic the 6502 processor in a Nintendo Entertainment System, allowing you to play ROM dumps of games designed for the NES console. ROM dumps are files containing the dumped instruction code from a physical cartridge. In many cases, you are legally entitled to posess a ROM dump of any game that you presently own. ROM images for NES are widely available online, or with the appropriate hardware, you can dump them yourself directly from the cartridge.

NES.app started as a fork based on the same original code as iPhoneNES, but has been completely rewritten to run very fast, and with many additional features such as sound, game genie, saved games, and full screen support.
Download Here

And already, our society of A.D.D. has swiftly moved on to bigger and better things
I introduce to you the SNES.APP hahah, be sure to check
back next week for the Playstation3.APP

(this is my 2nd time posting this, for some reason this post was completely deleted from the system, I wonder if kanye or his reps are trying to stop this track from being spread, If that is the case. send me a email next time sucka's)

Kanye West, Kanye West, Kanye West
, Say it 3 times loud and s
ee what happens? ..................................................
Anything? yea me neither. Kinda the same reaction I had after MTV VMA's. Now, Im all for Expression of self, and if you wanna belt it out on stage or on a recording when singing isnt your primary (or even secondary, maybe not even top 10) Talent, by all means. Do you, Go for Gold. But this AutoTune T. Pain Effect is out of control. I was surprised to see Mr West So lowkey during the VMA's, Overall. Im Feeling the track, The Vibe. Etc, Not sure if im excited about this being his 1st single, “
Love Lockdown, off the fourth album that is reportedly being titled, 808’s and Heartbreaks. I guess After Graduation theres not really any other way to continue the whole "College" theme, unless He drops "The Masters Degree". Cover art for the “Love Lockdown” has been made available while we are still waiting on the single to hit iTunes. The tentative album release date for 808’s and Heartbreaks is December 16th, 2008. via kanYelive.

Im Still A Kanye Fan, Even if he is smashing camera's or getting his Roger Zap on. Id rather the general population that gets exposed to "CLEARCHANNEL / VIACOM" Music Hear Kanye West then....DJ KHALED. PERIOD.

testing testing... KanyeWest "Love Lockdown mp3" Download 1,2,3.

THE HOBBYSHOP HERO endorses THE WATCHMEN and cannot wait for the movie to hit the big screen's, but this post isnt about promoting upcoming SciFi / Fantasy Movies... This post isnt really about anything... Just a little fun with LEGO'S, I wanted to bring some Balance to this fantasic Blogazine and since we recently shined light on the LEGO Artillery, I Figured you needed a little Ying to my Yang, so here is the Brighter side of the LEGO world.
This entire post is the result of Surfing GIZMODO (The Gadget Guide) so enjoy the iddish
that I found Interesting.

Sidenote (TheHobbyshopHERO) is A Grammar Free Zone. Enjoy the Chaos.


Made out of 2,588 Lego bricks, the Mac Pro was designed in Lego Digital Designer 2.0 for the MacMod Challenge 2008. The Hackintosh is a plain PC with a Core 2 Quad Q6600 2.4Ghz CPU running Mac OS X, while the Mac Mini is a Core Duo 1.66Ghz.
Steve Jobs MiniFig on his throne!


While Surfing GIZMODO I came Across this post, Dug A Little further and found the step by step creation by Keith Brogan. So all the Text that post in GREEN Below is Word from Word copy N Pasted from Keith himself. I must say, Kudos Keith, this is definitely Some HobbyshopHero Freshness!

Awesome Lego Mario Model Built Using NextEngine 3D Scanner

This is awesome. A Lego and 3D fanatic took a small Mario figurine, scanned it into a computer using the NextEngine 3D Scanner and used the data to create a near-perfect replica in Lego bricks, just much larger. Click the small picture for a much bigger version, and go check out the source to see the step-by-step process including screenshots of the 3D model he created. Awesome! - Gizmodo

I recently built this Lego model of Mario using a NextEngine 3D scanner, modo and big pile of Lego. Hope you like it! Cheers, Keith
I scanned a Mario action figure using the excellent NextEngine scanner...
The resultant mesh in the scanning application...
Imported into modo as OBJ and scaled to the size of the
model I wanted to build (75cm). I used the bend tool to bend his
arms closer to his body so the Lego model would be structurally stronger...
In a new layer I created a large array of Lego sized cubes
which were approximatley the shape of the Mario mesh...
Using Solid Drill>Stencil, I was able to select only the cubes which intersected the Mario mesh...
The building begins...

Completed Lego model in all its 75cm glory...

FOREIGN EXCHANGE (FreeDownload) The New Single "DAYKEEPER" featuring Muhsinah

DOWNLOAD the new single "DAYKEEPER" (feat. Muhsinah)


If you havent seen the L.I.A.B. Viral Video's you gotta head over to the F.E. Youtube Channel.
and check out the 3 posted so far.

Four years after the release of their critically acclaimed debut "Connected,"
The Foreign Exchange returns with their sophomore set, "Leave It All Behind."
Consisting of singer/songwriter Phonte and producer Nicolay, The Foreign Exchange came together via the online hip-hop community Okayplayer.com in 2002. After trading files through Instant Messenger for over a year, Nicolay (living in his native Holland at the time) and Phonte (a Raleigh, NC resident) completed their debut album before they ever met each other in person. The album, "Connected," was released in 2004 to positive reviews, and was praised by legendary DJ's such as Jazzy Jeff, King Britt, and DJ Spinna for its inventive mix of hip-hop, R&B, and electronica.

"Leave It All Behind" finds The Foreign Exchange much closer in geography (Nicolay has since become a resident of Wilmington, NC), but located much further from their hip-hop origins. The duo's second full-length is a dark, multilayered affair that features Phonte showcasing his abilities as an exceptional lead and harmony vocalist, while Nicolay extends his musical palette to include sprinklings of jazz, downtempo, and house. The lush, Darien Brockington-assisted "Take Off the Blues" picks up where Connected's sleeper hit "Come Around" left off, while the complex polyrhythms and dreamy synthesizers of "Sweeter Than You" are described by Phonte as "swing jazz for the next century." Marc Mac (of legendary UK production team 4hero), also contributes a string arrangement to the duo's glorious cover of Stevie Wonder's oft-forgotten 1991 gem, "If She Breaks Your Heart." In addition to appearances from longtime FE affiliates Darien Brockington and Yahzarah, the album also features guest shots from producer/keyboardist Zo! and vocalist Muhsinah.
