    The PC Engine sold over a million CD-ROMs before the Mega-CD even existed. It was so successful that even the Duo system was on the market before the Mega-CD.

    For ports of 8-bit games to 16-bit consoles, I prefer that the core gameplay remain intact and the same sized sprites and physical stage design used.

    Adding lots of new shading, color, detail,...

    I pledged for the rom version, but will buy a CIB version if enough progress is shown before the kickstarter ends.

    If one or two stages were already complete and it looked interesting and fun I'd...

    I understand that people who grew up with the PAL variant feel like it's "normal" and it is easier to develop for. But the Mega Drive was made for NTSC and regional hardware variants were only made...

    He's also infamous for being one of the biggest bullshitters in the history of the industry and most of his lies have been about performance of Playstation hardware.

    That doesn't mean that what he...

    Lots of devs bitd and later in hindsight make those kinds of claims.

    Some good articles explaining how it's only semantics have been posted on here in recent years. Both "emulation" and "fpga" have become buzz words that the average classic gaming enthusiast have been...

    The Mega SD is emulation, just high quality. Their advertising it as not being emulation is intentionally misleading.

    I had a friend who was hardcore into video games, but shunned the SMS while he had an NES.

    As soon as he got a Genesis he went out and bought a PBC and R-Type.

    Yeah, it was off to a great start and if it had more exclusive killer apps it would have continued strong for longer. I don't think that a more powerful Dreamcast launching the same time as PS2 would...

    You can get a custom controller adapter. I play 2D games using a Genesis pad.

    My rebuilt stock controller works as good as they can, which is enough to play 2D games well. But you have to adjust...

    When the SNES launched the Genesis was much cheaper. If it wasn't, it would have faired much worse.

    When the SNES launched the Genesis had a library of 100 - 200(?) games. If it didn't it would...

    There were no "third parties"/licensing bitd. Atari, Mattel and Coleco all tried to stop anyone else from publishing games for their hardware.

    The Genesis was cheaper than SNES. Launch prices don't mean anything when consoles fon't happen to launch at the same price.

    The timing that actually happened allowed Sega to gain steam and have a...

    Strider is very different from Final Fight.

    It's multi directional scrolling. Different type of collision, more layering. Different gameplay... its a different game.
