  1. Considering picking up a Genesis soon as my next retro console re-acquisition. Anyone still play one now? What are your favorite Genesis games? As far as new games go, Piko Interactive is a good place to look, they get ahold of licenses of games that never had a chance to get released in the US (or at all) and finish them up and put them on carts to play on the real hardware. (Not just for Genesis, but this IS a genesis thread lol)
  2. Sonic the Hedgehog may have been a well known character before Sonic 2 hit the shelves, but Sonic 2 gave his series of games the momentum to continue all the way to this very day, made the Sega Genesis a must-own system for kids around the world, and set the blue blur up as the pinnacle of anthropomorphic protagonists with attitude. Game critic and Sonic enthusiast Marcus Stewart joins the show to argue for Sonic 2's inclusion among the best games period. Some people love Sonic the Hedgehog, while others find the series lacking. This week, we pit the two views head to head to see which comes out on top! Each week we will be tackling a video game, old or new, that at least one of us believes deserves to stand as one of the greatest games of all time. We'll dive into its history, development, and gameplay, while trying to argue for or against the game of the week. Sometimes we will be in harmonious agreement, other times we might be fighting a bitter battle to the very end. However each episode shakes out, we hope that everyone who listens will find the show entertaining and informative. Outro music: Sonic CD 'Take It All the Way' by Magellanic and PROTO·DOME (http://ocremix.org/remix/OCR02940) You can download or listen to the podcast over on Soundcloud, our hosting site, and iTunes. A YouTube version is (sometimes) available as well, so you can watch what we are talking about while we talk about it!

  4. Many thought the Nintendo-Sega rivalry was long dead, but this holiday season the specter of that old conflict will rise from the ashes. While Nintendo announced a new mini NES that will be hitting store shelves this holiday season, Sega has announced a Genesis mini-console as well as a portable Genesis. While many welcomed the news of a retro Nintendo box and threw money at their screens, some had a few valid complaints. Nintendo's miniature NES will be a digital only box, limited to 30 pre-installed titles with no slot to play physical copies of retro games. On top of that, it does not include an SD slot, access to the virtual console's digital library, and comes with only one controller. In comparison, Sega will be pre-installing 80 titles onto both the mini-console and the handheld. The console will even include a slot to play old Genesis titles that might not be included in the 80 game roster. Both the console and the handheld will have SD card slots, too. It will also come with two wireless Genesis controllers and support for the original controllers. However, it is notable that the console lacks an HDMI connection, which could prove frustrating by creating a small degree of input lag, and the wireless controllers rely on infrared technology which hasn't historically been kind to controllers. Sega's console manufacturing isn't quite what it used to be, so the console and handheld manufacturing are being handled by AtGames. AtGames is best known for dominating the Plug 'n Play niche of the gaming industry and is striving to bring the niche more credibility than it has had in the past. Below you can see the entire line-up of games for Sega's new-old consoles. Half are classics and half are labelled as "Sega Arcade/Puzzle games" and might be lesser known to those who haven't had extensive experience with the Genesis. Classics: Alex Kidd in the Enchanted Castle Alien Storm Altered Beast Arrow Flash Bonanza Bros. Chakan: The Forever Man Columns Columns III ComixZone Crack Down DecapAttack Dr. Robotnik’sMean Bean Machine ESWAT: City Under Siege Eternal Champions Fatal Labyrinth Flicky Gain Ground Golden Axe Golden Axe II Golden Axe III Jewel Master Kid Chameleon Mortal Kombat I Mortal Kombat II Mortal Kombat III Phantasy Star 2 Phantasy Star 3 Ristar Shadow Dancer: The Secret of Shinobi Shinobi III: Return of the Ninja Master Sonic & Knuckles Sonic Spinball Sonic the Hedgehog Sonic the Hedgehog II Sonic 3D Blast Sword of Varmilion The Ooze Vectorman Vectorman II Sega Arcade/Puzzle games: Adventure in the Park Cross the road Jack’s Pea Jewel Magic Curling 2010 Plumbing Contest Wall-Breaking Bubble Master Break a Fireline Mahjong Solitaire Warehouse Keeper Chess Memory Snake Air Hockey Spider Naval Power Mr. Balls Cannon Fight or Lose Bottle Taps Race Bomber Checker Hexagonos Whack-A-Wolf Mirror Mirror Panic Lift Black Sheep Flash Memory Brain Switch Mega Brain Switch Hidden Agenda Dominant Amber Hide and Seek Jura Formula Lost World Sudoku Meatloaf Rotation Mya Master Mind Skeleton Scale T-Rex Memory Match Yawning Triceratops Labelled as the Sega MegaDrive/Genesis Ultimate Retro Games Console - 25th Sonic the Hedgehog Anniversary Edition, the console and handheld both retail for about $65 and can currently be pre-ordered from select retailers. There are definite trade-offs between Nintendo and Sega's mini devices. Those looking for a prime nostalgia trip or interesting gift this holiday season now have to relive the old dilemma once again: Nintendo or Sega?

  6. Sega is releasing a free update via Steam to all of its Mega Drive and Genesis titles that creates a new virtual hub that collects over 50 classic titles in one digital room. The hub recreates an early 90s bedroom complete with dynamic time-of-day conditions, Sega-themed decorations, a CRT TV, and a shelf that holds all your Sega Mega Drive and Genesis titles. Not only that, but the hub update brings some long desired features to these classic titles. Sega's retro titles will feature spot-on emulation, local co-op for games that originally supported it, options for graphical enhancements, the ability to save any time, and full controller and keyboard support. The full list of supported games can be found on Sega's announcement, but some of the highlights are Golden Axe, Altered Beast, Ecco the Dolphin, Virtua Fighter 2, Shining Force, Gunstar Heroes, Phantasy Star II-IV, Sonic the Hedgehog 1-3, and many more. Perhaps most importantly, Sega will be integrating full Steam Workshop support to allow for open modding of its retro titles. Honestly, we can't wait to see what the modding community will do with support from Sega like this! The update hits this Thursday, April 28. View full article
