    Playing this back when it came out, I remember not doing too well until figuring out the whole "only kill bad monsters" mechanic, and then everything clicked and with that plus the item that...

    The Beeshu Striker was my Genesis pad of choice until the 6 button pads hit the market. It was a bit chunkier than an official pad, but in a good way (IMO). I loved that it also acted as an extension...

    RGB is all you need, well, if you happen to have a PVM or a Framemeister or some other uncommon in America piece of equipment to plug it into. It's great if you do, but most people don't. They want...

    I've still got my '89 model 1 Genesis. I also have a model 2 I bought used in the mid 90's because the model 1 wouldn't work with a copier I bought. Which is weird, because it worked fine with...

    The easy mode of Castle of Illusion is so easy I once literally beat it playing with my feet.

    I don't know about Europe but the FCC definitely required more shielding than whatever body regulates that sort of thing in Japan. Yet it seems US 32x carts didn't have this shielding.

    I'm surprised 32x had refurbs given how short its lifespan was.

    I don't ever recall seeing any Sega refurbs in stores, though, never knew that was a thing back in the day.

    Shinobi wasn't WWF's fault, it was actually a gimmick he'd used a bit in the indies well before that first pre-ECW stint with the WWF. I'm pretty sure he only used it once in the WWF.

    I was always disappointed that they never actually put out a Phantasy Star game for the SCD. Or the Saturn, for that matter. Or anything but those online spinoffs for any post Genesis systems.

    Retron 5 supports Everdrives? I thought it didn't (and given the way it works wouldn't expect it to).

    Sure they didn't know what the hell they were talking about, but at least they picked some good games, could have just as easily filled the show up with LJN's 8-bit junk, Acclaim's horrible WarZone,...

    It was supposed to be mail order exclusive, but I know for a fact that at one point it turned up in Toys R Us. I don't know if it made it to any other retailers, but I definitely remember being in...

    While there are exceptions, I always thought, in general, that the SMS had better graphics than the NES. I'm guessing it absolutely has something to do with better uses of color, as games just seemed...

    Rare made a lot of crap too, stuff Sega's lucky they never had on their system. Some of the LJN trainwrecks were developed by Rare.

    It's weird they didn't just include GG capability from the get go, since I'm sure whatever SMS emulator they ripped off runs GG games. Granted you need a PBC to even play SMS on an R5, but I'm sure a...

    No way, without the logo, the system looks way too plain. The Japanese version sort of makes up for it with the bigger 16BIT but the euro version makes it even worse by taking away the little bit of...

    I managed to catch that in the brief window before it got taken down, I liked it. I'd like if he or Dave did some more of these (and left them up).

    Given what he said about possible rental damage, TurboCD and PC games weren't very commonly rented compared to Sega CD. I think every rental store at the time carried a least some Sega CD, but even...

    I already made that mistake back in the 90's when I got one of those console copiers that played Genesis (and Super Nintendo) games off of floppies.
