    Yeah the TG-16 is an interesting case, because parallax was such a huge part of the 4th generation but the system lacks native support for it... On the other hand, games like Lords of Thunder,...

    The RCA Studio 2 has no redeeming qualities. I'm guessing it was the cheapest? The Channel F is better than it in every way, the Studio 2 has no advantages over the Channel F what so ever.

    Hardware capability wise, I would say the following are what set each generation apart from their predecessor.

    2nd gen: Programmable CPUs
    - RCA Studio II, Fairchild Channel F, Atari 2600,...

    Loggo makes a good point on the style of games, but I still feel like it was a bit of a unique situation where the 2600 was just so huge everyone else played by its rules.

    Hardware wise the IV, CV...

    Guardian isn't that far ahead of say... ResQ on the Mega Drive, and certainly worse than Geograph Seal on the X68000. If such an overly powerful computer is not a fair comparison, than SoulStar on...

    There is a clear progression in hardware through the years, with only a few outliers (that were weaker than they should be for whatever reason). Even within a generation, while later systems tended...

    Death Stranding seems to be the Shenmue of this gen (not counting Shenmue 3 :p). The same reasons people love and hate Shenmue apply to Death Stranding. It's a massive slow burn, the gameplay is...

    GBA's native resolution won't scale perfectly on that screen. I guess with a DPI that high it doesn't really matter, but it's still rather annoying.

    I recognized a lot of freely available background art in the trailer, and also some character art. If they want to change all of it, that's quite a bit.

    It's a shame commodore didn't make a proper console version of the C64. Depending on how you use it, it looks like it belongs to different generations. A game like Turrican 2 is clearly 3rd gen...

    It takes 10 seconds to download a RAW screenshot of a game like the lion king or mickey mania or thunder force 3 and see the obvious difference in resolution. If people can't be bothered to do that...

    The POKEY is really good, it just didn't get a chance to shine.

    I actually wonder how they're handling the Neo Geo soundtrack. Did they get Savaged Regime to adapt the soundtrack for the Neo, or did they just record the songs to then play back like the late gen...

    Bug fixing is my guess too, or trying to cram everything into the cart. Meanwhile, I don't remember if it was already posted, but here's a ridiculously badass song from the game:

    Demon Attack takes advantage of the fact that the Atari 2600s "screen" is a single line and just changes colors as it is drawing stuff, wonderful game (and port).



    The situation on the MSX is a...

    It can do proper 320x240 but only on the background and the background is then 1 color (with the foreground color chosen automatically based on hue and brightness). Wanna have a blue background with...

    The Colecovision version of Princess Quest is crazy impressive (more-so than the Intellivision version which is impressive in its own right).
    The game has a ridiculous amount of animated tiles, the...

    I'm really glad homebrewers are pushing the Intellivision crazy hard. I never imagined it could do what it does. The fact that it can smooth scroll is huge and really sets it apart from the...

    They've stated the game has placeholder graphics and sound :p.

    The background is a repeating sprite yes. The developer has a tech demo that was shown on a stream where they go way crazier with those, much farther than Jim Power and Brian the Lion (it looked...

    Came back to post in this thread just for that prototype too. I made a proper thread for it in Insert Coin.

    Looking pretty good, finally some proper use of the hardware.

    Looking forward to this, just listen to that music:

    You'd expect the C64 version to sound way better, but nope, the NES keeps up just fine.

    Castlevania Bloodlines even replaced specific stair walking animations with generic walking animations to save space (which is why the stair walking looks completely broken). It doesn't surprise me...

    The Mega Drive would have been a much better fit for the Megaman X series. It barely uses the graphics and sound hardware of the SNES.
    Totally the wrong platform for the game, it could have had more...
