    Some dithering is OK, games were designed for that back in the day. With your art style I'm not sure it's necessary, your characters have kind of a plastic appearance so you could probably get away...

    I think it looks great. Like a comic book come to life. It's different from other SOR games, but so what? It's a new team, I'm happy they have the creative freedom to change things up.

    @Mauro I can't view your attachment but that's great. I've never said it's impossible to make a good game in BASIC but it does present some challenges you don't have with other languages. I started...

    If it's designed from the ground up with the MD palette limitations in mind it will be fine. All the 4th gen systems use 15 colors per sprite. So what's important is optimizing the rest of the...

    Yes except with the Teradrive it still has VGA out so you could use it with a computer monitor. Without that the options are more limited. If you have a Genesis, floppy drive, keyboard and printer...

    Wow I had no idea so many add-ons were planned from the beginning!

    That makes the MD look like it was intended to compete against home...

    That really gets to the crux of the situation doesn't it? A good game is a good game regardless of the hardware. That's why so many people still enjoy classic 8 and 16-bit titles today. But Fonzie...

    As I see it the main reason they built the PBC was because the Genesis started selling well in places like North America, where the SMS had not been very popular. So you had people who bought a...

    That's good to know, I wasn't aware of that. I wonder if a Super Gameboy-like adapter could have been possible? I want to say it couldn't work because it has to update the entire screen unlike the...

    Nintendo even said at one point (in an old issue of Nintendo Power) they had considered making the SNES backwards compatible but removed it for cost reasons. Considering by the time the SNES launched...

    Ah well... looks like those Chinese ninjas got him!

    I just hope this is all being worked into the story for Papirium. One of the later stages has you playing to save PayPal from bankruptcy and the...

    I can appreciate you're the one guy still in touch with Fonzie but his message is filled with more excuses... the warehouse wants to throw stuff away... economy is bad... ninjas are coming to get...

    Oh I didn't realize that, I thought it was being offered as a standalone. As an add-on yeah that isn't nearly as interesting to buy, even if I do find it technically impressive.

    I would have liked...

    I look at it kind of like going from the SMS to the Genesis to the 32X, there's still the base hardware in there somewhere but it's no longer needed for much.

    Either way I think it's cool, it's...

    No I had not but THANK YOU for telling me about it... it's like a split-screen Spin Master on the Genesis! Definitely gotta try this one :)

    I guess I missed the part on SMS R-Type, I thought the port was very good considering the hardware. The PCE port is much closer to the arcade but still has sprite dropouts and flicker at busy...

    That is the Achilles heel of the PCE, the games look really good in screenshots but as soon as stuff starts moving around it's often inferior to the Genesis. (I like the PCE too, but each system has...

    That is very close, I would not be surprised if it's running a lot of the same code considering the CPUs are the same. Seems to flicker more but it's hard to tell with the vector games since a lot of...

    Not that I know much about these systems but considering both the Vectrex and Star Wars arcade are powered by a single 6809 at 1.5 MHz (my understanding is that the arcade uses the second 6809 for...

    I think this is a better strategy and one I wish every company would adopt. Support your old hardware as long as you can and let the consumer decide when they want to upgrade. Either way they're...

    Bushnell is right. Arcades got very expensive, especially at a time when people already had consoles and computers at home. The high difficulty of most arcade games didn't help. They became the...

    Hmm... yes that's true PC gaming was growing by leaps and bounds in the 90s. Is there another source for this kind of information?



    That sounds right to me too. The one on one fighters were the...

    You know maybe I'm remembering it wrong, I looked at some numbers and the arcades were still bringing in decent money in 1995.
    See this article for example, there's a graph halfway down that shows...

    The port was not that good, hence why Sega was handing out copies of VF Remix only months later.
    You're right about hardcore gamers but they weren't that big of a group. By the mid '90s most people...

    Yup, color handhelds were available even in 1989, the only reason the Gameboy took off was because of its battery life and solid line-up of games. But by the late '90s rechargeable batteries were...
