    Also many said in this thread earlier if that is the case live with it, as sending to WMG for servicing is too risky as well.
    If I had to speculate on what this thing is, I'd look at what was available for online console gaming pre 6th gen consoles. Online co-op feels like a no brainer, online leaderboards too. As for dlc, I don't think he would ever dare do that, you can't fault him for trying to make the game an authentic mega drive game and he'd never stomach microtransactions in one. What does feel possible is unlocking content that is already on the cart by connecting it online, similar to what Sega were doing during the Dreamcast era. The big one people want to know is whether it can be updated via the mega wire. I honestly doubt it, fonzie seems to be uncertain himself if that's possible in that interview that was linked above. Frankly if it could be done I'd be terrified doing it, nobody wants a bricked cart right now.

    Do any of you guys buy homebrew games for other systems?
    Example NGdev... For Neo Geo... I'm on 4+ years waiting for that game as well.
    What's worse? Constant updates about nothing? Constant blaming of others? Or no updates?

    well, I see your point regarding firmware updates, however it largely depends on how it is implemented. I had a HP notebook where the bios update failed, but it would do a bunch of verified before writing overwriting it. in the end I only got a warning next bootup that bios flashing failed, but theoratically i could have tried it endlessly.

    Pre-crash "homebrew" is thriving. Cote Games is a French developer and publisher who make over the top box sets with all kinds of extras to accompany their impressive Intellivision games.

    Their communication is second to none, they are quick to ship, they are also a part of the community and are enthusiastic about what Watermelon would call "competitors'" releases.

    Pretty much all of the good and the polar opposite of all of the bad from Watermelon/Paprium.

    Well, Watermelon used to have a community around them and their own message board, in the above linked interview it was said, that it is because of how the internet turned and how much people started spamming and so on, but I think it is probably just a matter of better moderation really.


    Next to your good example, you have studios like
    LUEGOLU3GO STUDIOS that I pledged for their game Nogalious and then suddenly no communication whatsoever for a year. they froze the project for a year without telling anybody really. and now we wait for an update where this was announced since September.

    There are some groups that sketchy, but projects like Paprium was all red flags from the moment the Magical Gem system was announced.

    During the development and rolling pre-sales of Paprium, hundreds of games were and published by groups like Collectorvision, OPCode, Team Pixelboy, Atariage, Good Deal Games, 2600connection, PenguiNet, IntelligentVision, Intellivision Revolution, Elektronite, BBWW, Kai Magazine and Blue Sky Rangers.

    Why so? I thought it all went down when they got troublws with PayPal for the first time. I wasn't around and didn't know Watermelon when that was announced, I only heard about it and preordered it April 2017
