As usual, our own Drummer tends to be the first one out of the gate. Here is a run down of what was put into the rom including some pics and a video.

** Get Tecmo Bowl 2012 **
Tecmo Super Bowl is the king around here but there are people who also not only love the original but put a lot of time and effort into modding it. Read more from the rom's creators.
The premise is the same this year, it's Tecmo Bowl (the one with 4 plays!), complete with the 32 teams of 2012 NFL Football. Ratings are not exactly that of original, but stay true to the spirit of the original. HP was carefully considered, along with a team-based ratings approach. Sometimes players have to take a downgrade a notch or two in order to not make them better than they are...some liberties had to be taken in order to try and keep as realistic of a balance as possible.
Hit the forums to download the game and read about the other hacks involved with this release.
The 4Play Team
Turd: Chief editor
Cam: Ratings Editor/Reviewer
Jstout: Lead assembly developer
Long time World Tecmo Federation vet "Arncoem" is able to overcome 2 early pool play losses to take down tourney organizer Brian "Bad Moon Rison" for the championship of the first NYC Tecmo tourney in a couple of years.
Here is Arncoem on the final game
He choose the matchup Green Bay vs Seattle. I then got to choose which team & took Green Bay.
It was a crazy game that Sterling Sharpe caught a 60 yard JJ when game was tied 7-7 w/ 30- seconds left.
I was able to get out of bounds after the Sterling Sharpe JJ & w/ 2 seconds left kicked a field goal that bounced off the goal post & in for the 3 point victory & the championship.

See original release here
Were you aware that Peyton Manning had his neck fused with a bone from his own hip, which is a bit more painful, than the usual cadaver bone so he could get back earlier? Crazy, huh.
In a similar notion, we decided to put out our rom before the start of the season in lieu of really checking every single player yet again, so we ended up with "Brandon Llyod" and "Black Charlie Whitehurst" and starting NFC Pro-Bowl Center Jason Witten. This updated release is aimed at fixing a lot of these little bugs and some minor ratings tweaks in order to pander to our fans. Along with the updates we've also included some other roms from the guys who chose accuracy over speed.
Other Included Roms
Buck and Rewhawl’s “Pure” and “Upgrade ROM”
QB Eagle’s 2011
Buck and Rewhawl’s Semi Pro
Here are some of the highlights of the fixes
Mixed up Passing Accuracy and Pass Control in the manual: PA = completions, PC = where the ball is going
Not only is Kerry Collins starting over Peyton, but Peyton has been renamed as "QB Colts" given his current up in the air status
We fixed all the stuff up above
Check out the readme for the gory details
Last but not least, let us know if we've still overlooked something in the following areas<p>
** Download Tecmo Super Bowl 2012 **
Happy 20th birthday, Tecmo Super Bowl!
All 32 teams
Current day rosters (sorry David Garrard)
Passing Accuracy now does something (this means original game John Elway realllllly sucked)
Ability to change the quarter length
Did you know it's been 20 years since the release of the the original Tecmo Super Bowl? We did!
We hope you enjoy this updated version of the game. You'll notice some new faces, some new teams, and a brand new look. You'll also notice that to celebrate we modeled a lot of guys after some of the Tecmo Greats out there. Here is an easy one given they play(ed) the same position on the same team: Ndamukong Suh is Jerry Ball! However, if you're going to Nose Tackle Dive, just make sure you don't do it against us.
If you don't agree with the way we've rated some players, and obviously you won't, you have two options.
Sign up in the forums and drop some knowledge in the thread. Most likely we're not going to tweak too much but at some point we probably will make some changes.
Check back sometime in the near future when we teach you how to change all those players on your own. Terrorize the defense with you at running back....or Tecmo Bo.
Also, we'll probably have quite a few more roms released towards the end of the week with some pretty mind blowing hacks. Long Live Tecmo.
