Posted by Bruno B on May 3, 2022 at 9:15 PM Comments comments (0)

 More game news , recently funded on Kickstarter the game Shadow Gangs is coming to Dreamcast in Q3 2022 . Once again  Wave Game Studios of Norwich are on the case with the publishing rights. I was curious about this title as it plays like a Shinobi game and has wonderful hi rez graphics. It already released on Steam and current platforms in 2020 and 2021 .


But here Dreamcast owners will be able to get a nice physical release of the game by the end of the year, JKM Corp the developers are also including some bug fixes and upgrades to the gameplay as well. So the Dreamcast version will be the definative one to play. 

But if you can't wait you can grab a digital copy on Steam,Switch,Xbox One/S/X, PS4 and PS5 via backward compatability. 

Here at KITG we will be doing a review of the game on Dreamcast when it launches.

Posted by Bruno B on May 3, 2022 at 8:55 PM Comments comments (0)

   Hi All, Yes Bruno here with some more game news , Currently putting together a review of a few New Dreamcast games from indie developers, and all published by UK based publishers Wave Game Studios in Norwich.

I have currently been playing these games and will give a overview of the games and what I thought of them very shortly. 

The games in Question are Senile Team's Intrepid IZZY ,  Retro Sumas's Xenocider , which is the first fully fledged 3D action game for Dreamcast in twenty years. And finally a lower key title, but still fun in the crazy named Yeah Yeah Beebiss II . This game is from Independant game dev John Riggs and it's theme is one to bring a smile to any Jiangshi style  Hong Kong Cinema's fans face.


Won't be long now , I will update as soon as the feature is live. 





A colourful platformer from SENILE TEAM, Intrepid IZZY is sure to bring a smile to your face.




Around five years in the making, Xenocider is one of the most exciting releases on Dreamcast in years



Yeah Yeah BeeBiss II has a very retro look from the 8 bit era , but is so much fun.



A Legend Passess- Kenneth Tsang

Posted by THE SNAKE on May 2, 2022 at 9:00 AM Comments comments (0)


              It's always sad when news of the passing of someone and once again the world has lost another legendary actor who came to fame in Hong Kong Cinema. 

Kenneth Tsang has been one of the msot prolific actors of his generation in Hong Kong Cinema. From playing opposite Chow Yun Fat in the Better Tomorrow Films and Jackie Chan in Police Story 3 and Rush Hour 2 . 

His career started in 1955 with a film named The Feud at the age of sixteen. Since then he has given stellar performances in well over a hundred films. He even played a Villian in the James Bond Film Tomorrow Never Dies. 

Mr Tsang conitnued to work up to his death.

He had just returned from Singapore and had gone into Quarantine in Hong Kong for Covid 19 . He started to have chest pains ( common with Covid 19)  He also suffered from Hyper Tension which he took medication for. 

On the morning of 27th April 2022 the health authorities had visited to give him a PCR test and his family found him dead, he was 87.

It seems tragic that his death was so sudden.

Our respects go out to his family and the memory of Kenneth Tsang.

The Passing of two legends

Posted by THE SNAKE on February 27, 2022 at 9:30 AM Comments comments (0)


 Hi All

It seems I fill this news stream with sad news more then good of late. The Martial art and Film world have lost another two legends .





Sadly on January 30th the Martial art world lost one Robert Wall (Bob), star of Enter the Dragon, Bob Wall was taught Martial arts under the late Gordon Dovasola, a Hawaiian Okinawan Karate exponenet as well as the late  Joe Lewis and his friend Chck Norris, attaining a 9th Degree Black Belt under Chuck. Bob Wall also set up the World Black Belt Inc soceity. 


From teaching the arts to starring in films Bob Wall was a champion for the Martial arts world, of course his standout film was Enter the Dragon  where he played the legendary Ohara charcter opposite Bruce Lee. 

A sad loss to the Martial arts world, he will be sadly missed , he was 82 years of age.


Then on 21st February the sad news of the passing of Hong Kong film director Chor Yuen, who had started his film career in the 1950's , he directed some 120 films and wrote and starred in many others. From greats like ''Bloodshed in the Valley of Love -1957 to Killer Clans-1976 and 1982's Heroes Shed No Tears. 





Many will know him from his role in Jackie Chan's Police Story where he played the antagonist Chu Tao aka Tom Koo. In fact he starred in four films with Jackie in total. 

A prolific director and screen writer, Chor Yuen passed away at age 87.

XBOX celebrates 20 years with 76 new backward compatable titles

Posted by Bruno B on November 16, 2021 at 9:35 PM Comments comments (0)

 Hi all, Bruno B here with another dose of gaming news. XBOX celebrated 20 years of Xbox on Monday 15th November with a special half hour show announcing a whopping 76 new backward compatable titles available to play on your Xbox One / One S / One X / Series S, and Series X.

Included are a mix of OG Xbox and Xbox 360 titles, bringing the 360 titles playable to over four hundred titles now.  Among these games where some real gems like Timespitters Future Perfect and its sequel, three games from the Dead or Alive fighting series, Max Payne 1/2/3, and a few titles from Sega's back catalogue including Binary Domain, OTOGI 1 & 2, and GunValkyrie.

The list is extensive and though it does contain some games that where released digital only on the 360, its still a impressive list, especially for those with a collection of OG Xbox titles. Whether all of these titles will be able to be purchased via the storefront is unknown at present, so it may be better to track down a original disc to  be able to play the game. 

But you can bet your bottom dollar that the savvy people on ebay and second hand games sellers like CEX will be reviewing there prices on some of these games as their now available to a new audience. 

Sad news is that it seems that might be it for the backward compatable program, as licensing some of these old games is quite dificult as some of these IPs have changed hands since they launched and the biggest titles to suffer are games with Licensed cars, sports peronalites and Movie or TV licensed product..

Yes many are still wishing for the likes of PGR, Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Ralisport challenge to re appear but it looks like these games are relegated to being played via the original disc on original hardware only. 

Also Xbox have released a series of new controllers in various finishes with the XBOX 20th logo on to commemorate the twenty years, these come in wired DUKE versions and Series S/X wirelesss versions. 

I will be back shorlty with more gaming content going live on site, and also where be covering the Game Awards from the comfort of our armchair on the 9th December.


This BrunoB signing of.
