    This reminds me: where would Ultramax fall under all this? …I mean, yeah, the whole thing is a joke, it's a C64 in console form and with very little RAM (I'll let you take a guess how that went). On...

    They probably thought it'd be faster and make things easier and it turned out to backfire.

    Eh, Master System looks better because of 15 colors per tile/sprite (seriously, that makes a huge difference), but it's still inferior to the NES PPU in several places (lower resolution, only two...

    Well, 5200 was meant to replace the 2600, and the 7800 was made after that tanked (7800 is compatible with 2600 games for a good reason).

    Honestly all this discussion shows is how bullshit the...

    Well, so far the prototypes we find seem to try to keep the ROM header date around the build date (rather than the release date as the documentation claims) so I believe that the general consensus...

    January 1980 sounds like somebody screwed up the date in a tool lol (1980-01-01 is the epoch date for DOS).

    You're all utterly wrong. Plane A is all the large chunks of black (yeah, same plane as foreground, it redraws on the fly), sprites are used for the finer parts (i.e. the silhouette).

    The ROM header implies October (with November 3 being the day the EPROMs were programmed). It's still not that much time, mind you. The 2P sprites are already based on the final ones, so that implies...

    Nope, Flash is a completely different beast and would require completely rewriting the decompression code and risk wearing the Flash even further. May as well get one of the existing standalone ROMs...

    I think shifted meant that Fonzie should give the game to Piko (not that he already did it).

    That said, if anybody else were to manage to pick it up, it's more likely Tulio.

    One common issue in all of those is that there are always "half-generation" consoles in the way, if we are defining by hardware. I guess the reason for defining generations the way we do is that...

    Oh yeah, about that… Master System wasn't the actual name of the console, it was Power Base (ugh!). Master System was the name of a bundle with the Power Base, two games and lightgun, Base System was...

    Both names are just as bad :​P But then again I think the question is more how much confusion they bring up… No matter how hard you look at it, they're nowhere near as bad as (again) XBOX One or New...

    And all of those are still better than XBOX One :​v (Microsoft really should have stuck to Scorpio…)

    It comes with the PC version. You need to install it and dig into the game files, mind (this is by design, not something that was overlooked).

    Why would it work if you press the wrong button? ¯\_(°_o)_/¯

    My guess is that it's more likely that it's loading new graphics (as the stage proper doesn't start until after the cutscene, while later stages start directly).
