  1. Shmups, you ask?? M.U.S.H.A. Truxton Lightening Force By the way, there's a guy on ebay doing perfect repro's of Genesis carts and he doesn't use the crappy, thicker, Chinese knockoff boards. https://www.ebay.com/sch/m.html?_ssn=foreverfroggy1111&_sop=10 (I'm not affiliated with them in any way, shape, or form)
  2. I don't always use Internet Explorer... but when I do, it's to download a different browser.

      It's funny cuz it's true!

      I don't always use Chrome browser, but when I do it's, oh, like 99.99999999% of the time.  I guess MS Edge wasn't too bad, and they're changing it over to being based on Chromium open source browser.

      Pffft! Dinosaur! I stopped using IE as soon as Microsoft dropped it from Windows 10. Been using Edge ever since ... for downloading other browsers. Get with the times.

  3. Sega CD's being dumped on ebay like no tomorrow in anticipation of the Mega SD....

    1. Flojomojo


      Be sure to dump them on your hard drive, too!

  4. Trouble in Vaporware-land, Castlemania says the 'upcoming' Sega-Retrobit Nomad may not be a 'reality' until Fall 2020.

      * The Genesis

      That would be my dream system. I wouldn't doubt that someday we'll have it too.

      ain't that right? would be awesome

  5. I play the Sega CD using the Fusion emulator (for those who don't know, the Fusion emulator plays Genesis, Sega CD, and 32X ROM's). For the Sega CD, if you like shooters then Lords of Thunder, Robo Aleste, Keio Flying Squadron, and Android Assault are awesome. Sonic CD is very good and Snatcher is great for those who like to spend time on a futuristic adventure/novel. In terms of sports titles, the Sega CD can't compare to the Genesis. It's got a few good fighting games like Final Fight. Batman Returns is excellent. RPG's like Lunar 1 & 2 and Shining Force are great.
  6. You can download Sega CD ROMS as zip files. Check it out.
  7. Hoping for a Genesis version of the SNES FC 16 Go or Supaboy handhelds that I love using so much.

    1. DragonGrafx-16


      Well, there's the new Nomad if that thing is actually going to be sold.

    2. Jin


      I'm sure hoping for one too! Retro-Bit is working on a a remake of the Sega Nomad, but who knows if it'll ever actually come to market.

  8. Video Game Critic's review of Philips CD-i console durability: most older cd players are susceptilble to read problems after heavy use, but fortunately, CD-i systems are not prone to heavy use.

      Every Apple Pippin in existence is probably still in showroom condition.

      Hell, It's barely prone to light use!

  9. I whipped up a little pic of some of my Genny collection....
  10. I'd be thankful to just see Sega/Retrobit's resurrection of the Sega Nomad become a reality. Nintendo, as we know, is a totally different animal.
  11. Looks like the Youtube video converters are no longer functional - it's like freaking hell freezing over.

    1. adam242


      Which one do you use? I like https://ytmp3.cc/ and it seems just fine.

    2. chuckwalla


      Thanks, i'll check it out. Was using https://www.onlinevideoconverter.com/youtube-converter and https://www.clipconverter.cc/ - getting virus alerts on both. I'm using Norton 360 anti-virus.

      Maybe it's The Eagles

  12. A guy on ebay has an interesting mod on it. Tempted to buy it, especially for the Turbografx games.
  13. Atari 8-bit Donkey Kong My favorite DK Level 1 101,100
  14. For those who don't know, Sega & Retro-Bit are coming out with controllers for the Genesis and Saturn soon - can't wait Hopefully the new Nomad portable will be coming out soon too. http://retro-bit.com/sega-collaboration
  15. Just restored two OEM CX-40 joysticks to perfect working order...here's a good link https://vintagegamingandmore.com/atari-joystick-repair/.
