The Official SEGA CD/MEGA CD thread! (assuming there hasn't been one yet)

Recommended Posts

Hey folks!

I remember even before it hit the market I used to dream about a system that could play Dragon's Lair-type interactive cartoon games. Then when the Sega CD came out and I bought Road Avenger, I was in HEAVEN!

This was the model I had, Model 2:

Sega-CD-Model2-Set.jpgAnd here is Model 1:

P1000848.jpg

Even before that, though.. I got to play this game with my second model system...

SEWER SHARK!

sewer-shark.png

Man, I really enjoyed this game.. I know a lot of people hated the deluge of FMV games for the system, but I enjoyed Sewer Shark and all its cheesy glory. I laughed out loud at some of Ghost's dialogue, especially when he was mad at you. "TURN AND BURN, DOGMEAT!!!" I know the layout of the tunnels was a bit repetitive but having to remember the right paths kept me on my toes. Endlessly quotable game!

 

An added bit of fun to start off our thread; a couple of bootup screens for both original models:

They were both followed by Sonic wagging his finger and sparks flying from it, then the "Se-Gaaaa" music refrain.

 

Share your pictures, videos and memories of when you got it, and what games you had!

Ah, the Sega CD Model 2 boot theme. It's one of those few tunes that always makes me feel good. :)

 

I got a Sega CD sometime when they were on their way out, just before they were put on liquidation, probably 1995 or 1996, I don't recall. Around that time I was mostly in the Nintendo camp, but thanks to working up a trade with a friend for a Sega Genesis console, it quickly got me thinking about the Sega CD. It had always been this pricey, premiere product that I never thought I'd get to experience, but perusing the Funco Land paper I realized it had become quite affordable. I ended up begging my parents into getting one for my birthday. They came through and picked up a used Model 2 from Funco Land along with Sewer Shark, Prince of Persia, Batman Returns, and Eternal Champions: Challenge From the Dark Side.

 

I have so many good memories from the first few days of owning it and that birthday definitely went down as being one of my personal best. Even though the PS1 and Saturn were out they were still mostly unknown to me. The Sega CD's boost in audio quality and things like full motion video still blew my mind. It was a great way to experience CD for the first time in a home system of mine and honestly I wouldn't have had it any other way. The games especially are what made it and some of those initial few are still some of my favorites, like Batman Returns and Eternal Champions (a HUGE boost over the Genesis version). I loved it and it ended up being one of my most played platforms from the mid-to-late '90s.

^ Oh man, Prince of Persia had some of the worst voice acting.. it was hilariously bad!

Here's some of the games I had:

THE ADVENTURES OF WILLY BEAMISH

Pretty hilarious point and click game where you control the actions of a kid who's trying to do avoid mischief and do good deeds. A bratty sister, bullies, a mischievous frog and various other characters make this harder to do than you'd think.

Adventures%20Of%20Willy%20Beamish,%20TheROAD AVENGER

One of my favorite Sega CD titles, this was actually a Japan-only arcade release back in the mid-80s. Absolutely brilliant Dragon's Lair-type interactive cartoon with you as a driving whiz getting revenge on a gang for killing your girlfriend. So incredibly fun!

road-avenger.png

FINAL FIGHT CD

What a brilliant translation of the arcade classic. Plus you can set the buttons to turbo--VERY helpful!

63978-Final_Fight_CD_(U)-1491070473.jpg

Others I had included:

PRINCE OF PERSIA (horrible)

SEGA ARCADE CLASSICS (Columns, Super Monaco GP, Golden Axe, others)

ECCO THE DOLPHIN (I could never get into this game)

FATAL FURY SPECIAL (not too bad; but no in-game narration that I remember)

MORTAL KOMBAT (decent graphics/sound but infuriatingly long loading times)

And..

NIGHT TRAP

Man, this was such great cheesy horror fun! I loved watching all the events that went on in all rooms of the house. I enjoyed watching the girls die. :)

"Use the traps, Control!"

Night_Trap_SegaCD_coverart.png

And I also liked this one, even if the controls were crummy:
HEART OF THE ALIEN

The sequel to OUT OF THIS WORLD/ANOTHER WORLD, this was dismissed by OOTW/AW creator Eric Chahi. But it was gloomy, violent and very much in keeping with the tone of the original. Some really gory deaths could befall the protagonist, who was the friend of Lester in the first game. I enjoyed it for what it was worth. And it had a great animated intro!

Heart_of_the_Alien_Coverart.png

And SONIC CD. Great gameplay, music, and everything-- but the bonus rounds were glitchy.

I have a model 2 attached to a model 1 Genesis and only played Sewer Shark a few times with a Master System controller because I don't have a Genesis one. I got it and a 32x, never tested it, on eBay years and years ago and never got around getting a proper controller or any of the games I wanted to try like Terminator on Sega CD. I need to replace the fuse properly and just get a stinking controller already.

I snapped this up when it came out, even though it was insanely expensive at the time:

SEGA CDX

It was small, portable, played Genesis and CD games and you could use it as a CD walkman!

320px-Multimega.jpg

I almost forgot, I had this incredibly awesome game:

LUNAR: THE SILVER STAR

I never played ETERNAL BLUE, but this one was a fantastic RPG in its own right. Marvelous humor too.

lunar-the-silver-star.png

And if you were going to save your game, you really needed this cartridge for added memory:

BackupRAM_MCD_US_Cart.jpg

And one more game I just remembered I had:

PRIZE FIGHTER

What a cool game of boxing, done completely in 1st person perspective.. totally interactive with quick clips of you connecting with your blows. Black and white FMV done very well, with Judo Gene LaBell as the ref. I cracked up when he would ask your opponent "What's your name?!" when he took a licking from you, and he would sometimes respond with non-English.

250px-Prize_Fighter_cover_art.jpg

I also had this interactive cartoon game:

TIME GAL

Not that great but the death scenes sure were funny. Like Road Avenger this was a Japan-only arcade game in the mid-80s.

Time%20Gal%20(U)%20(Front).jpg

And finally, all the Digital Pictures games had a second track that had a DP employee answer a ringing telephone and say "Good afternoon, Digital Pictures", and a creepy sound of people exclaiming "Number 9, Number 9, Number 9" backwards would be heard.

The first time I saw one was at my uncle's house...IIRC it was a model 1.

 

I remember being amazed at Prince of Persia, because I had never seen that kind of violence in a game before.

Batman Returns (racing-only mode) was just awesome in general.

I couldn't believe how real the graphics looked in Dracula...I still find them pretty impressive today, though the gameplay isn't great.

My brother and I played Streets of Rage on two-player for a while, and tried to play GoldenAxe, but we couldn't figure out how to play co-op mode instead of The Duel (turns out, you can't!)

 

I also fondly remember Out Run, but obviously that must have been a cartridge.

 

I don't remember if we played any other games that day.

 

 

Now I have a model 2 CD (with a model 1 Genny in it), I was just playing it a few weeks ago. It was having trouble with a couple of discs, I hope it's not clunking out on me.

I've had two model Ones for years that don't work right...only a few days ago I decided to take them out again and decide what to do with them. They both power up but the tray doesn't open, I think.

Shortly after I got them, I got a CDX which I use for playing most of my Genesis games now. I play Sonic CD from time to time.

I had problems with my Model 2; its connector where the Genesis slid onto the Sega CD would break and also the laser eye for the Sega CD would fail.

 

I also had:

DRAGON'S LAIR

Super grainy but otherwise pretty good rendition of the laserdisc classic.

dragons-lair.png

NHL '94

Great crowd noise in this one! IIRC there was no regular season progress in this game. Bummer.

NHL%20Hockey%20%2794%20%28USA%29.png

SPACE ACE

Visually decent port of the animated laserdisc arcade game. Unfortunately the controls weren't correct at many points in the game.

space-ace.png

SILPHEED

Beautiful 3D space shooter with great voice work throughout the gameplay. Those giant 3D asteroids tumbling past you.. cool for its time!

I liked ground zero, a fairly bad fmv shooting game. Played sonic CD, thought that was cool. Fahrenheit was pretty cool, supposed to also use the 32x but I never got that to work. Some other games I don't really remember. I was SNES all the way bitd, but segacd was the shiznite! If it wasn't for that I'd probably never gotten the genesis.

Wait.. So you have a Sega CD AND 32X, but don't have a Genesis controller? Seriously? :lolblue:

 

Why do you need to replace the fuse? Is there something wrong with your unit? If not, you don't need to replace the fuse.

 

^ Oh man, Prince of Persia had some of the worst voice acting.. it was hilariously bad!

As most voice acting was back then, unfortunately. Fortunately, the game itself was pretty sweet.

I used a Genesis power adapter I had lying around that blew the fuse. I used a Master System power adapter and wire for a bridge to test to make sure it was the fuse. I haven't messed with it since because I never got around getting a replacement fuse or controller.

 

The auction was cheap but just had the core systems without any power adapters, cables, or controllers. It came with one Genesis game and Sewer Shark. This was like over ten years ago and I just got preoccupied with other systems that interested me that I had a lot games for. I'll get a fuse and one of those GN6 controllers sometime this week or next year.

The SEGA CD was exciting to me, for some reason, when it debuted. I had friends who were not impressed by it, but I was taken in by it despite my disinterest in FMV and its color limits. I think you had to be there for the whole ride to really appreciate the SCD. Towards the end, I appreciated that Genesis games would also be on CD with enhancements and the CD version cost $5 less than the cart. Today I am very nostalgic about SCD, even it's boot up music. I have a Genny 2 ontop model 1 CD.

 

I was just playing Pitfall Mayan CD and Jurassic Park CD recently. The sound quality of Pitfall is very good, probably the best of all versions and this version has more levels and great music. And I find Jurassic to be an interesting but somewhat failed experiment by Sega of America to do an adventure game using their new CD tech. The death scene sounds are startling , hearing yourself being eaten or trampled. I still don't understand why none of the SEGA Jurassic games have the film music though. Missed opportunity there.

 

Other faves are Robo Aleste, Batman Returns, Spider-Man, Eternal Champions, and I still enjoy NHL 94 with its organ music. I own about 40 games.

I cannot stand Sonic CD. It's like the levels were put together with a random generator.

 

I also did not enjoy Sonic CD. I hated the soundtrack. It wasn't until recently that I discovered that the Japanese version had a different soundtrack - one much more suited to the game.

 

My favorite games on the system are Working Designs ports. Lunar 1 and 2, Popful Mail, Vay, Heimdall. All really good games. Also, Shining Force CD has an amazing soundtrack and is a lot of fun.

 

But I've always been a JRPG fanatic, especially tactical JRPGs, so I've naturally gravitated towards anything Shining Force. The modern equivalent (which is really better all around) is the Disgaea series on PS2, P3, and PS4.

Last night I felt compelled to play more SCD, so I play Space Ace. I swear the timing is off, you need to press your selected movement almost ahead of time. I wonder if HDTV lag is causing this.

 

Also played Batman Returns, both driving and platforms. Driving game as hard as always. I cranked the sound system up nice and loud. I actually enjoyed platforming more than I remembered. Give got to the 2nd fight with Penguin, where he drops a steel Boulder at you then hovers while sending spinning blades.

I remember being amazed at Prince of Persia, because I had never seen that kind of violence in a game before.

That's the first time I ever heard someone naming PoP as a game where any kind of violence happen.

I guess it has gruesome scenes for the time :D

I got a Mega-CD recently, tho, I had heard of it for a long time. This thread could help me choosing games ^^

Not PoP, but I arelady have it on the PC-Engine CD and of course on computer...

Most likely.

 

I always play Dragon's Lair that way anyway (on Windows PC), just keep mashing a button until something good happens >_<

 

That's the first time I ever heard someone naming PoP as a game where any kind of violence happen.

There's a bit more violence in this version than some of the other ports. You leave a nice bloody mess when you land on spikes. I wouldn't see Mortal Kombat 2 on the SNES for at least another couple of years, so the goriest game I had seen up to that point was probably Abadox.

 

Not sure the violence makes it worth playing, though =) When I finally beat the game, it was the NES version...and I may have accidentally hit the emulator's "rewind" button once or twice... ¬_¬

Oh, if there was a NEversion this it was more likely tned down.

The PC version have the "spike blood death"

I looked a bit, and hte Mega-CD version seems to add blood for the "soldier" death, tho, as in the DOS version they have red pants, it's hard to tell if they bleed at death or if that's just a pixel mess :

 

Anywa they are all hard to play versions. The SNES one might be the easiest, with a 2 hours challenge and passwords to restart levels (the password store your time).

Either way, Sega CD was the first time I had seen PoP.

Nah, the SNES version has a longer time limit because they added a ton of extra rooms. It takes probably twice as long just to get the sword at the beginning of the game.
