    I'd still be shocked if S3&K came out of legal limbo. So expect spinball if anything. Maybe 3D blast if they really hate us.

    Really happy/surprised to see castle and world of illusion there. Maybe we can hope for Aladdin.

    Everyone says S3&K is in legal limbo, but we managed to get loads of S3&K stuff in Sonic Mania.

    There's more than ample plausible deniability that Mania is a legally distinct product. Especially if they weren't using any of the contested music. It's not like they've been holding back the best Sonic game for the hell of it.

    Mania featured (very close to original) remixes of music from both halves of Sonic 3+K.

    And if they wanted to be real lame about it, the PC soundtrack for em exists...

    For three whole levels. Only a minority of the 3&K soundtrack is in dispute. Although that dispute might extend to re-releases of the "same product" even with replacements.

    Sparkster for Genesis was great, what are you talking about dude.

    6sdMeys.png

    Seriously though, never cared for Sparkster. On the plus side it was better on the Genesis than the SNES.

    Sparkster had a lot of awesome stuff going for it. They expanded the one mech suit boss fight into a whole repeating mode with better design. The jetpack auto charges which lets you take off extremely quickly, meaning the bosses were designed to be faster and more vicious. The bosses themselves are pretty extremely creative and there's kind of a Contra design to them, which I enjoy. Instead of the game just becoming Battletoads hard as RKA does, there's a selectable difficulty with extra content in the harder modes, including essentially a ripped off Super Sonic mechanic. The easier mode is very doable for someone more into Marios or Sonics than Contras or Battletoads, which is smart for a cartoon game about a cute/ cool 90s mascot furry character.

    Oh and the style of the graphics is cooler imo. Sparkster himself looks way more professional and dangerous versus chubby and goofy from the first game.

    I want to be excited for that one, but I never played it. Just admired it from afar.

    Then I bought the cart off ebay in the early 2000s and never played it.

    Crossing my fingers for the SEGA Channel version of Mega Man: The Wily Wars, since that never got a real release in NA outside of that.

    Also pulling for Quackshot, since I have a friend who gushed over it, but I never got to play it.

    Now that we know Disney is on board, I'm really hoping for Quackshot. I guess it is just a matter of if they feel three Disney titles are too many. I just really like that Sega is putting in the leg work to get games we've not seen in these collections on it.

    If the US console is getting the US version of Contra: Hard Corps, no thanks. Throw that ROM in the garbage and burn it. Overtuned, unfair, America-hating piece of shit.

    The US version of Hard Corps is definitely harder than it should be, but it's still beatable. Trying to get some of the endings, though...I never accomplished that when I was a kid. Not sure if I could do it as an adult, but on the other hand I watched Vinny and Dan from Giant Bomb get all the endings. It took them 26 attempts, though, with each attempt including exhausting all of their continues.

    It'd be nice if they included the Japanese version.

    Castlevania was confirmed to do that for Japan, and I think all games with substantially different versions between regions, but I can't find anything confirming other regions will have that.

    My guess is it'll be easy to hack so you can just put a translated Japanese version on there.

    They fixed it with the Genesis Flashback HD 2018. Be sure to get the second version. It has the SD card slot on the side.

    By that standard the game selection is completely irrelevant.

    Which, it kind of is, but its not really worth bringing up when talking about what should or shouldn't be in.

    I just think the multi region stuff is so niche the only people who would care about it would be the same people likely to hack it.

    Technically so is basically every video game. Doesn't make some of them not overtuned, frustrating, bullshit. I'm not a 20 year old game QA tester with 8 hours a day to master a game. I don't wanna suffer through your masochistic torture ROM.

    I was at a Comic Con in Canada yesterday and saw a PS Classic for sale for $169.99. European SNES Classics were available at the same booth for $150. I got my PS Classic for $40.

    I really hope no one bites on that absurd price.

    So someone made a patch for Gradius III so that it runs with no slowdown thus making it impossible to beat run like a dream! Here's a video from a few days ago of it in action:



    There's an explanation of how it works in this Nintendolife article.
    Fast forward to 2019 and that issue is on its way to being fixed in a very clever way indeed. Vitor Valela is working on a hack to add SA1 chip support to the game, routing all the calculations that used to go to the SNES's CPU and PPU to the SA1 instead. Despite still needing to tackle several issues regarding stability and keeping a correct overall clock speed when the game is running, the initial work on this is already quite promising.

    The SA1 (or Super Accelerator 1) graced such games as Super Mario RPG: Legend of the Seven Stars, Kirby's Dreamland 3 and even Konami's very own Japanese exclusive Parodius 3: Jikkyou Oshaberi Parodius. It had several different uses within each game, but the fact that it had a clock speed of 10.74 MHz compared to the SNES's internal 3.58 MHz certainly helps to explain the technical wizardry Vilela is getting out of Gradius III.

    I tested it out today and can confirm it even runs on the default SNES Classic emulator with a little finagling. Very cool!
