    The Mega CD Disc Format specifications. Some of the contents confuse me though; I'm not sure whether I'm being dumb, or whether there are some typos or translation errors.

    The Mega/Sega CD's spec for compliant discs is weirdly conservative. I'm not sure of the reasoning behind it, especially as some of Sega's own games exceed it. The documentation says that it's to...

    Not that long usually unless the package is being opened, and that's slow even then unless you're buying something that either customs have to think over, or the paperwork isn't in order. That being...

    Those pictures! WTF? A one armed man with Parkinson's could solder better than that.

    Also, Panasonic didn't own the 3DO or get much, if any, of the licensing fees. It had to be sold at a profit which was why it was so expensive initially, and would have limited how much money and...

    Using dyes and phase changing materials that are designed to absorb specific wavelengths of light. Things which are not present in CD or DVD-ROM discs where the pits and lands are pressed into the...

    All I can say is that no CD that I've owned from new appears to have visibly deteriorated in an obvious way, and they're all kept in their cases in the house and not exposed to excess temperature or...

    If this exists, and that box isn't a mock-up, this could be the rarest game on a Sega console.

    That collector had a picture of Surgical Strike 32x too, didn't he? That was eventually found, so you...

    Never heard of this one at all. 20 minutes of FMV from the Firearm movie! A quick Google suggests the "movie" was only 35 minutes anyway.
  10. To be fair, those examples are all in the...

    To be fair, those examples are all in the cyberpunk genre (or perhaps proto-cyberpunk in Blade Runner's case) while Cobra is not, so it won't have the same atmosphere or aesthetics. I really do think...

    I'm sorry, $129 is the cheapest option for new pre-orders? After the total fiasco this has been so far, are they joking?

    I've been playing various versions of this lately. This one isn't great.

    I'd say it looks okay until you realise that the backgrounds in all the scenes are static images with video placed over...

    This has always been a game that I wanted to like more than I actually did. It's okay I guess, but I really don't like a couple of things that the review mentions: cheap hits/deaths, and how you can...

    IMO the best sim on the system. The developers managed to strike the right balance in terms of simplifying the game for the system while not making it feel too arcadey: the handling was simplified so...

    Genesis Plux GX doesn't emulate the 32X, so you'd be stuck with Picodrive on Retroarch.

    Been playing a bit of this and the later Windows version lately. It's okay but rather obtuse and lacking in story. The grind is really frustrating in the early part of the game too, artificially...

    As a side note, the price escalation of some strategy guides is even more insane than that of the games themselves. It seems that if a strategy guide isn't readily available, some sellers will slap...

    This is probably a silly question, but I'll ask it just in case: are the games you're trying from the same region as the Multimega?

    I've been waiting to see examples of this as I've seen it happen with other collectables (photo portfolios split, for example). I'm surprised that it doesn't seem to be happening as much as it could...

    To confuse matters further, the Japanese version appears to have been published by Enix. There's no Sega credit on the title screen, just Cyan, Sunsoft, and Enix.

    Nintendo are far from the only company to pull this type of crap unfortunately. Square Enix, for example, removed the PC version of The Last Remnant from sale completely when they released the more...

    I generally enjoy Daniel Ibbertson's videos, so this is a shame, but it's symptomatic of something I've seen in a lot of Youtube videos lately. There are too many videos which are a lot of...

    Wow, that's ridiculous. It'll be interesting to see how that goes. See, a lot of the other things they sell shares in, sports cars and the like, make good talking points. If you stand to make a...

    This might be one of those cases where you'll only find out how much it's worth by trying to auction it, or by just putting a price out there and seeing if anyone bites. Rare doesn't necessarily...

    Without someone who worked on the DVD actually saying it, that sounds like an unlikely reason for the change. Motion isn't generally too much of a problem on DVD as long as a DVD-9 is used, the...
