You know it saddens me that SEGA has never matched the quality / quantity / fun that they generated back in the 8-16 bit era.

    I can think of tons of great Genesis games...Only a few standout Dreamcast games come to mind...But to each their own.

    With the Dreamcast, being able to play emulators on it without any mods was a real treat.

    Same here GoldLeader, I can rattle off a list of two or three dozen awesome "must play" Genesis games off the top of my head, but when I think of the Dreamcast there's... Sonic Adventure and The House of the Dead 2? I guess the Dreamcast never really resonated with me, though I'm sure that there's tons of good games on it that I just don't know about. The Saturn I always thought was pretty neat, but too expensive for my budget these days.

Dammit....even with the admitted embarrassing amount of time I spend here I STILL manage to totally miss some drama? Well, I better step up my game!

    Son of a Biscuit Eater! I've already got too much to buy! ... Solid line up! I have most of them for sure. Surprised there's no Crash Bandicoot, Castlevania, or Spyro.

    Solid line up, but probably passing on it (have some of the titles physically digitally on the PS3... no need to buy them again)

    I was kinda "meh" on the game selection. There are some good picks in the lot but (as GoldLeader pointed out) the lack of Crash Bandicoot, Spyro, Castlevania: Symphony of the Night, and Tomb Raider really kill it for me. That's alright though, I'd rather play on original hardware with the real discs anyway. =)

Confession time for no particular reason. 3 games I have never liked that seemed pretty popular or much loved by others. 1. Mr. Do's Castle 2. Mappy 3. Chu Chu Rocket. I have tried them all on several occasions, different versions where possible but they do nothing for me. I love Colecovision and just about any version of the original Mr. Do! but none of the spin offs (Neo Mr. Do! / Mr. Do's Castle etc)

    I loved using the Mappy car in RidgeRacer on PS1 because there's nothing like an underdog to go and win the races.

    You're wrong and you smell funny. Mappy is one of the all-time classics.

    Think I've got Mappy on a couple plug n plays, because Namco loves putting it on them. But I've never really liked it that much. Don't think I've ever played any version of Mr. Do or Chu Chu whatever.

    And it's on Cleopatra Records no less...I always thought of them as a mostly Goth label, but they do other things.

    A strange game. The only winning move is not to play.

    How about a nice game of Atari vs Intellivision?

    She was so beautiful and amazing in Superman as was Christopher Reeve. What a great movie to see on the big screen as a kid. I want to remember her the way she was in that movie. She brought such light & joy to so many of us. May she rest in peace.

    Ok, on a random note I forgot she was in Amityville Horror. That movie was such a great watch too.

    We dump on Hollywood for not recognizing unconventional women, but Margot Kidder was a really interesting choice for Lois Lane. Quirky, squeaky voice, not traditionally beautiful.

    Shelley Duvall comes to mind, too. Unfortunately she's not doing well. https://www.usatoday.com/story/life/tv/2016/11/17/shining-actress-shelley-duvall-tells-dr-phil-shes-mentally-ill/94031976/

RIP Tab Hunter :( Throwing on MST3K S06 E14 in tribute. http://www.mst3kinfo.com/?p=26336 Tab Hunter, the chiseled 1950s heartthrob who starred in dozens of films, including “Damn Yankees,” died at his California home on July 8. He was 86. MSTies will recall he played evil mastermind Stayczek in the movie in episode 614- SAN FRANCISCO INTERNATIONAL. The Hollywood reporter has the story. https://www.hollywoodreporter.com/news/tab-hunter-dead-damn-yankees-star-was-86-1057871

    I honestly thought he was long dead, but I remember this article from a few years ago ... "What’s admirable about Hunter is that, against his long-standing instinct for the quiet life, he is filling out an important part of gay history, when the studios controlled their charges and the celluloid closet was firmly locked shut.

    I first saw him on the big screen in Lust in the Dust as a kid. At the time I wasn't quite sure what I was getting myself into. Later on I saw Polyester and loved him in that. He seemed to be a professional and so very handsome when he was younger. RIP Tab
