    TTi was a separate corporation co-owned by Hudson and NEC. But this is kind of nitpicky and beside the point. One might also point out that TTi continued selling the Turbo Express, so technically...

    The Turbografx never did well in North America, but I always kind of figured that the (then-upcoming) Sega CD was the trigger that made NEC create TTi and have them exclusively market the Duo. The...

    The Naomi 2 isn't workable as a console. They wanted to keep the same architecture, but PowerVR was having issues with not progressing on time. So the Naomi 2 has the same GPU as the Dreamcast/Naomi,...

    Not sure what your point is supposed to be, but it would be extremely worse for our economy if we were to try to just move along and go back to normal business, and the death toll reaches seven...

    I could probably answer you in specifics if I spent all day digging into the provisions of the bill. I'm not doing that, but the information is out there. The figures given for each section of the...

    I'm pretty sure "the reason one [3dfx] is dead" was not yet a thing as of the time we're talking about. The death of 3dfx is usually blamed on their acquisition of a major manufacturing firm, making...

    The cash payments are estimated to add up to $300 billion. The $560 billion for "individuals" is a combined total with the expansion of unemployment benefits, estimated at $260 billion. There is no...

    Wasn't the Black Belt a little weaker? I don't recall seeing full details of the Black Belt GPU, but a lot of people thought the Black Belt GPU simply became the Voodoo Banshee. If not the same it...

    This song is like the epitome of "random 80s music". I never knew it had a video... This is easily one of the worst, weirdest, and "most 80s" music videos I've ever seen. It has a theme around aliens...

    I guess to coincide with Panzer Dragoon, Limited Run is also selling wireless digital Saturn controllers now. I'm not sure I want to use it for this game in particular, but seems worth getting....

    I think it's more that by that time, Zip drives were seen as old and outdated technology. It seemed weird to people to play up this thing that was formerly semi-popular on computers but people...

    All of the Mini consoles are just emulation machines. They happen to be much better than previous ones but they're the same category.

    Maybe, but that would be kind of a shame. It seems like half of the work with the MD Mini was just them getting up to speed on making and distributing an actual hardware product. Another Mini console...

    I'd be pretty surprised if they do a Mega CD Mini next. Who is clamoring for that? If you were going by the next most popular Sega system, the next thing should be either Saturn Mini if you're...

    Any place that sells food, not strictly just grocery stores, is exempt as "essential" business but they can't have a dining area. So the little food stands inside Target and Whole Foods are closed,...

    We here in Northern California were the first in the country to begin "shelter in place". I wish they'd have a different term for it, you're allowed to go outside. This isn't like Twelve Monkeys....

    That seems plausible actually. If it would be technically feasible at a reasonable price point, which some have said it's not.

    But that 6 is followed by the kanji for day? It's saying something something in 6 days. It's not the name of anything.

    My recollection from that time is a lot of games ran in DOS until 1997-98, but they weren't really advertised or perceived as DOS games for the last few years of that. It was easy to buy a "PC" game...

    Is there any known particular reason Sega went with Samsung for the SVP chip? I'm pretty sure it was very uncommon in the 90s for a Japanese company to use a Korean company's components in...

    If there had been more SVP games, would they have all been flat polygonal games like Virtua Racing? Or could the SVP potentially be used in other ways?

    I don't know much about the technical details of the SVP tbh, but if Virtua Racing is indicative I don't think it could do the game well enough.
