    The Yakuza series is very popular in Japan. As in, most regular people are familiar with it, which is more than can be said for nearly all of the titles on that chart. It's essentially Sega's version...

    Yeah - not sure what the two previous replies were about :daze:

    The screws are under the label (as I think the OP knows). There aren't clips like on a smartphone. The OP is asking how to remove...

    That was a lot of text to show that you don't really know anything about Sega's current business :)

    Just the monthly reminder for Sega-16 that modern Sega does a lot more than Sonic games, such as...

    Coincidentally I just came across this video the other day:

    If you can't get past the first boss, it probably means you aren't fully understanding the controls. Master the teleport and parry until you can do them without thinking - they're the main things...

    Zetaman's been busy... Now he's uncovered remnants of the two lost forms of Seven Force:

    The names are Harpy Force and Nemesis Force.

    A new video from Zetaman - and a very interesting one, at that:

    I think this is VERY old text from the game - probably left over from an early revision. None of...

    Zetaman also updated the TCRF page for Alien Soldier with more recovered content, including cutscene graphics:

  9. Alien Soldier - Removed Contents Discovered in ROM

    I didn't see this posted here yet and figured some of you might not know about it.

    All credit goes to 'Zetaman' on Youtube for finding these. Check out his comments in the video descriptions for...

    I'm quoting what is probably the greatest post ever made on Sega-16.

    I wish there was a simple list of region-based difficulty changes. I'm always suspicious now playing any JP-developed Genesis game that the difficulty has been jacked up. :) Most likely I'm just no...

    Just pointing out that the arcade scene is still alive in Japan and has evolved beyond whatever people have nostalgia for. You seem to be under the impression that arcades are closing because they...

    None of that really applies to Japanese arcades, which evolved long ago to not be appealing to most foreigners. Most of the current arcade games are not really accessible to casual play. You have to...

    Thanks. OK, there's no way I have the time to read all of that, but already on the second page (er, I guess page 56) it's hilarious.

    A lot of people seem to be conflating the two, but this topic only directly affects sealed games (and most specifically, the most recognizable games - Zelda, Mario, etc.).

    A lot of people keep saying this, but as Karl Jobst says in the first comment to that video above, it doesn't make sense. Money laundering doesn't cause bubbles - it takes advantage of bubbles that...

    Could you give examples of why not to trust SegaRetro for publisher/developer info? I typically find it to be much more accurate than Wikipedia (which should definitely not be trusted).

    I think you've already got a good list of genres (missing a few, though). This kind of database is best served by broad categories. That's much easier for users to sort. As you say, if you separate...

    This looks great! Excellent work.

    I especially like the layout for the box art. It's nice to be able to browse through the covers like you would do back in the day at a store.

    It's 'just' a series of mid-frame palette swaps--changing the color palettes during active display. This will create CRAM dots on the screen if too many colors are changed at once, which is...

    That's a good point. It's interesting to consider the motivations of the producers, some of whom were also involved in developing games.

    Herzog Zwei was a very early release, though. In 1989/1990 almost everything was being localized aside from the really inaccessible titles since SOA hadn't yet established a strong development arm.
