    I agree it was most likely just for devs but if that did go into production you wouldn't need to load the entire game on it, just put a few MB of commonly used assets like a RAM cart. It also gives...

    500 MB was probably the smallest they could buy at the time. I remember buying a new hard drive in 1996, I wanted to replace a dead drive in my 386 and figured 200 MB would be more than enough. I was...

    It may look cool but it was crap, both the disks and the drives always had serious reliability problems. That's really what doomed the format. If it had been consistent it might have replaced the...

    You're probably right about it just being there for development but even in the 90s a hard drive was orders of magnitude faster than optical. The 2X CD-ROM in the Saturn has a 300 KB/sec transfer...

    Oh that's good to know, I only ever played the original. Got to see if I can track down a copy for my Wii U.

    LOL. You have a point there. At least in RPGs things change over time, your characters level up, or you gain new items and magic, or there's story progression etc. One of the issues with Pier Solar...

    It would have been surreal to see a Sega Pluto with extra RAM, modem, MPEG card and a hard drive released in 1996. Would have been about on par with a low end PC. The hard drive would have been...

    Even 8 years ago I wasn't sold on a beat 'em up as the best choice for an indie title. A turn-based RPG was a great idea because it was a genre that hadn't seen enough titles on the Genesis and...

    That's interesting about Burgertime, never played the Intellivision version, I agree on the NES it's a frustrating experience. I wonder how a wheel would work with fighting games? Moves that require...

    I'm sure it will be good for some games. I just can't see an entire console designed around such an unusual controller. It would be better as an accessory. Consoles have converged on similar...

    It looks at least a decade out of date. There were MP3 players like the Sansa Fuze that used a click wheel and screen back in 2008, not to mention the original iPod from 2001. When did a wheel become...

    Yeah I guess... I'm intrigued by the idea of a new console that isn't from the big 3, but I look at the controller and all I can think is that the novelty is going to wear off very fast. The...

    The very first game looks like a multiplayer Ecco. Other than that this is pretty underwhelming. What was the point of launching a new kind of console when the games are things we've already seen on...

    Either we are missing a big part of the story or the exchange rate values are way off. If Samsung had cost Sega $30 million, we'd have heard about it in the form of a lawsuit. Unless of course both...

    The CPU is a similar architecture to the Model 2. I recall one of the developers from Argonaut saying that Nintendo could have used full color displays even back then but I guess that would have cost...

    I've never heard of any arcade PCB that used a Samsung DSP (although now that I've said that I'm sure someone will have an example).

    There must be more to it. If the chips were defective that should be on Samsung not Sega.
    VR on the Genesis was a technical marvel even with all the limitations. Put it in the Nomad and you've got a...

    Even $15 is very high for one component, if it was $100 the game would never have been made.
  19. I agree with you that would have been way better.

    I agree with you that would have been way better.

    There's a lot to dislike about the 32X but the video hardware never struck me as the worst part. A framebuffer is relatively cheap and provides flexibility, it expands the limited MD color palette...

    Oh, good point. But without the MD hardware I imagine it would be difficult to do a 2D game with lots of action, like a sequel to Gunstar Heroes or bullet hell shooter. There was one guy on...

    The best hope for Democrats is that this is all a work. Biden will spend the next few months as Trump's punching bag, then he will fall ill and have to drop out, only to get replaced by Bernie at the...

    It's a lot of misinformation. The people who are dying of Coronavirus tend to have a lot of pre-existing conditions and an average age of 80. Yes that's bad if you or your grandmother fit that...
