    There was also the Xbox version. It was included as a bonus in House of the Dead III that could be unlocked by finishing the game. That version was also based on the DC version, I think.

    If you factor in The Typing of the Dead, which is based on HOTD2 with heavily modified controls, I count five versions of that, not to mention English of the Dead for the Nintendo DS - I was surprised by how well a game originally running on the NAOMI board could be reproduced on this relatively underpowered handheld!

    I would also be interested in anything HoTD related. Besides Die Hard Arcade that was my favorite arcade game growing up.

    Podcast? Yakumo has a podcast? Battle of the Ports is a series of videos, in case you didn't know that.

    I will be on a podcast at the end of his month but not my Podcast :)

    This week's Battle of the Ports is from that wacky developer, Data East.

    Hehe, thanks. You'd be surprised how butt hurt many Mk fans are with my comments. Seems if you don't agree with them then you're instantli wrong.

    I've never found the combat of MK all that engaging either. The newer ones have made it a bit better but the earlier ones are a bit too basic and rough.

    Agreed. The last game to be released was really good but the earlier ones including that crap with DC characters are awful IMO.

    @Yakumo have you ever handled Crazi Taxi by any chance? Not sure if there are enough ports to justify that or not. I guess you have Arcade, Dreamcast, PS2, Gamecube, PC and Gameboy Advance. I could have missed it.

    I have thought about doing a crazy taxi but due to the music used in the Arcade and a Dreamcast versions the video would be hit with a copyright strike in no time.

    You could patch the game to use other tracks, or memu the music volume and add it in post.

    Beside, isn't criticism exempt from copyright claims? Or is it just not worth the hassle.

    I've heard from so many content creators who fell foul of supposed fair use rules - it seems that YouTube in particular considers itself exempt from such laws if there's a chance money can be made. The solution with any potential Crazy Taxi video would be to mute the music or replace this with something else, though not without strongly making a point that you had to switch out the original soundtrack.

    In Japan the term fair use doesn't exist. Shits like Nintendo can copyright strike you for just showing Mario on the NES. That's what happened to one of my videos. Showed about 20 seconds of Mario and Nintendo took a fit.
