Hideo Kojima’s Snatcher is often hailed as one of the best reasons to buy a Sega CD. A well-received sequel was released on the PlayStation and Saturn but never made it stateside, depriving fans of a great adventure game. Thankfully, it was finally fan-translated a few years back and we can now enjoy what Kojima himself considers the definitive version.

It’s limited due to the compromises made during the conversion to the home market, but it’s still a blast (ha!) to play. And it’s another reason to use your Justifier!

Junction

Junction

Junction is a game few people remember and even fewer actually played. Part of Micronet’s line up for the Genesis, it was a neat little puzzler that had players guiding a marble around a tiled stage. The complete lack of marketing – save for a print ad you can view in our scan archive – caused the game to die a quick retail death. It’s a good thing then, that we’re here to remind you of why you need to give this one a try!
