In tetrapods the Hox genes are organized in 13 paralogous groups organized in four clusters (HoxA-HoxD) resulting from the two rounds of genome duplication early in vertebrate evolution. Not every paralogous group is represented in each cluster (though minimally twice in total) due to frequent gene loss during evolution. Typically genes from the same paralogy group are expressed in similar domains and act redundantly in specifying axial identity, something which severely confounds mutant analysis which usually has to resort to full paralogy knockouts (see for instance [27, 28]).

The Hox13 paralogous genes are the final Hox genes to become activated in the tail bud in the temporal collinear sequence of Hox geneactivation that occurs during development (mouse Hox clusters shown). In the outgrowing tail bud Wnt3a provides a growth stimulatingsignal while Cyp26 counteracts a growth suppressing Retinoic acid (RA) signal emanating from the somites. Hox13 genes have beensuggested to terminate tail bud outgrowth by suppressing Wnt3a and Cyp26 activity [6]. In the mouse four paralogous Hox13 genes areexpressed strongly in the tail bud (approximate cumulative expression domain indicated). In the snake only Hoxc13 has comparableexpression whereas Hoxa13 and Hoxd13 are only weakly and transiently expressed thereby providing a mechanism for prolonged tailbudoutgrowth in the snake [5]. Hoxb13 has not been characterized in the snake but since this gene exists as a pseudogene in the lizard (Anoliscarolinensis) (JMW unpublished observations) it is possible that a functional Hoxb13 ortholog also has disappeared from the snake genome.

Limbs develop in a competence region of the lateral plate mesoderm (LPM) in response to a signal from the somites, possibly retinoic acid [49]. The Hox genes are popularly believed to be involved in the positioning of the limbs along the axis at the position of the shoulder girdle and at the position of Hox9 anterior boundaries in the LPM. The loss of limbs in snakes has originally been attributed to the homogenization of the Hox codes along the axis resulting in an overpatterning of the Hox code determining their original position [46]. First, it needs to be remarked that the existence of such a Hox code for limb positioning is doubtful. A correlation between the expression of combinations of Hox genes and the positioning of the limbs exists in somitic mesoderm and LPM but if and how Hox genes are actively involved in determining the axial positions for limb bud formation remains extremely elusive. Hox9 genes were considered a candidate signal determining the positioning of limb buds in the lateral plate [50], it has now been shown that combined loss of function, although surprisingly affecting forelimb autopod development (see below), does not affect their position along the axis [27]. In addition, in lizards, the sequence to limb reduction evolves via consecutively smaller limbs, which however develop at approximately stable positions at the neck-trunk transition and around the cloaca. Even in completely limbless lizards such as the Slowworm (Anguis fragilis), remnant limb buds still develop at the expected anterior and posterior positions [51]. The only evidence possibly indicating a limb reduction mechanism operating through alteration of positional information along the axis either via Hox codes or via a downstream interpretation was reported for the corn snake [4]. First, it was observed that, whereas the somitic mesoderm and the LPM in mouse typically have different Hox codes with the anterior boundaries for the Hox expression being offset (see for instance reference [43]), in the corn snake they have coinciding anterior boundaries. Second, the forelimb marker Tbx5, which normally in mouse becomes restricted to a forelimb domain during development, is expressed in an atypical pattern throughout the LPM of the trunk in the corn snake despite a regionalization of the LPM by Hox expression domains. However, because the Hox codes in somitic mesoderm and LPM and the upstream signals governing Tbx5 expression and their possible connection to Hox expression are not well understood it is very difficult to interpret these results.

For instance, the accelerated pace of the somitogenesis clock in snakes results in the formation of more but also smaller sized somites [38]. Although it will be challenging to obtain sufficient material to investigate all the components of the somitogenesis pathway in other elongated species, comparison of somite size may give a good indication of their relative clock speeds [38]. Embryos of the slow worm (Anguis fragilis) compared to the green lizard (Lacerta viridis) do indeed develop more and smaller somites indicating a corresponding frequency increase in the somitogenesis clock (Raynaud, 1994 from reference [38]).

Whereas snakes display elongation in trunk and tail regions (see also main text on the different snake ecotypes), caecilians have an elongatedtrunk while possessing an extremely short tail comprising several vertebrae only. Another striking example of disproportional bodyelongation is the lizard Takydromus sexlineatus, which has evolved a tail many times the length of the trunk, which has remained essentiallynormal. The behavior of trunk and tail elongation as independent evolutionary modules suggests different developmental mechanisms behindthese two processes.

Over a decade before the name Tony Hawk first began to become synonymous with skateboarding videogames, Electronic Arts was innovating on the NES with the impressively diverse Skate or Die. The game, presented in a manner similar to Epyx's popular California Games, came to the Commodore 64 and the NES. Skate or Die brought gamers several different skateboarding events including downhill races, freestyle ramp competitions and a joust match fought in a drained swimming pool. Then, Skate or Die 2 came along and trumped its predecessor in many ways, offering a full storyline adventure in addition to the standalone skating events as well as adding in the "Double Trouble" half pipe, a massive structure that spanned two full game screens and let you pull off highly stylish (for the time) vert skating tricks. Skateboarding continues to be a sport explored in new and unique ways in video gaming today, with EA recently revisiting the concept with Skate and Tony Hawk's series adding the new Ride peripheral, but Skate or Die got it all going.

It may be hard to believe, but at one point Zombies were a greatly underrepresented class of brain-dead enemy in videogames. Thankfully, Zombie Nation arrived in the latter days of the NES to smash the zombie barrier. The protagonist of this peculiar game is the disembodied noggin of a samurai, who packs some serious cranial power. It goes down something like this: an extra-terrestrial force named Darc Seed has zombie-fied the world, oh and there's some kind of stolen sword involved or something. You take direct control of the samurai's giant head in a sort of side-scrolling shooter that's too deliberately loony not to check out. Zombie Nation pushes the NES graphical capabilities more than any other shooter on the system, with lots of moving enemies, building destruction and a steady stream of pixilated chaos. Brazenly over-the-top, Zombie Nation is one of the few NES titles that doesn't take itself seriously.

Out of all of the games on the list, Journey to Silius might have one of the most interesting histories. Created by Sunsoft, which was at the top of its game in the late 1980s with classic release after classic release, Journey to Silius was originally supposed to be a licensed Terminator game. Evidence of this is all over the place, from the enemies to some of the music. But when Sunsoft had the license stripped at the last minute, it made due with what it had, and with limited editing, Journey to Silius was released. Thankfully, Sunsoft didn't throw this game into the dumpster after losing the Terminator license, because Journey to Silius is one of those seldom-played but everyone-should-play-it NES gems. Its fast-paced 2D action style made it a game preferred by those with quick reflexes, and its arsenal of weaponry, which can be chosen from a Mega Man-like menu, gave the gameplay variety, with certain weapons working best against certain enemies and bosses. Journey to Silius wasn't experienced by many gamers in its time, but it has more than earned its place on our Top 100 for its smooth gameplay alone. 350c69d7ab
