    The Game Gear should collect AA batteries

    Gunstar Heroes rips. I think that was the first game that I rented and then bought.

    I still wonder why Gunstar Super Heroes never left the GBA. It's a solid sequel even if it's waaay more anime.

    Not to mention Space Channel 5, ChuChu Rocket, Operation Espionage, Maken X, Gunbird 2, Bangai-O...

    Dreamcast easily has one of the wildest lineups ever.

    Funny, mine's always been hooked up since 96.

    Sonic Twitter's having another takeover day, and this one's a pretty solid goof:



    [Sonic characters answer a question from the Among Us twitter]

    Idris Elba says that Knuckles won’t be sexy in ‘SONIC THE HEDGEHOG 2’.

    “I wouldn't say he was sexy. I don't think I'm going for that. That's for sure.”

    how DARE you

    What Idris has failed to account for

    Is his own base sexuality

    Combined with Knuckles base sexuality

    Humor can be dissected as a frog can, but dies in the process.

    Is it multiplicative or exponential?

    He's just admitting he doesn't even have to try, that's all.

    Eh I'd say at worst that list dips to ok.

    edit: that being said you're gonna want to get some fan patches for the Adventure games. IIRC the PC ports are kinda shoddy.

    Really the best option is to play the original Dreamcast versions, even the original GC ports have some real issues.

    Almost works as “Pay more to get better games!” but you gotta switch All-Stars racing with Team Racing

    And Lost World should be brought down to Adventure Tier. Yeah I fuckin’ said it.

    Sonic wears... shoes, so that's why it has a leather base

    Also he's blue which means... suede

    The Shenmue one advertises itself as smelling of tobacco

    The cancelled English Dreamcast version of Shenmue II is now apparently out there, not sure how complete it is.

    EDIT: correcting myself, Shenmue II was released in the EU and this is the NA release so I'm guessing the game was already playable with English subtitles before this. This version might run in 60hz though if it was made for ntsc televisions.

    Matt McMuscles should write a book about how Sega has always been their own worst enemy. It's honestly impressive how long they've survived, given their penchant for shooting their own feet. Like, Sega's made a lot of great stuff over the years, and these days they've been doing pretty good as a publisher for other companies, it seems. But the more I learn about the 'behind the scenes' history of the company, the more dysfunctional it gets.

    Console Wars by Blake Harris is mostly this, but only goes up to the Saturn launch and from the Sega of America perspective. It also focuses on Nintendo in the same period.

    There's also no way Matt could write a book about anything, except maybe Godzilla.

    Ok we watched the Sonic film this evening as it popped up on Netflix. Having specifically checked for it a few days ago and finding nowt.

    Whilst it wasn't high art by any means it was much better than I anticipated/feared. I think Detective Pikachu was the better of the two but far less of a gulf between them than expected. A perfectly cromulent Sunday evening was had at any rate.

    I excitedly counted the number of times Sonic slammed into Robotnik's machine in the final showdown and was badly crestfallen when I hit nine.

    My favorite musical instrument is the air-raid siren.

    Especially in the Saturn "JRPGs aren't profitable" era when Bernie Stolar actively tried to kill the system when that was what it primarily had going for it.

    Thank god FF7 came out and made him look like a moron.
