Don't know if I can trust your everything.
I always wanted this but could never find it. so I bought a Japanese copy (+ cartridge adaptor) in a shop in Paris when on a French exchange under some mistaken belief I could learn Japanese to an extent to play it. I could not.
STREEETS OF RAGE STREETS OF RAGE OMHMGMGHOTMBTBB
good thing I have an emulator with every rom as back up :D
who really cares now - it's years past the date
loads of them are on the Xbox/PS3 online services, I think?
probably due to high traffic
i can't remember the games anymore
I literally dreamed of having every game at my disposal back then. Obviously this is just nostalgia now, but fucking hell.
but can't. It's the only suitable thing for this.
lists 915 games: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_Sega_Genesis_games
the categories on that site add up to 1459 - presumably some of them are listed under multiple categories (particularly 'action' and 'adventure') but I'd say that's a wide enough margin of error...
as best I can remember
The fact you can play on two entirely different levels from each other
Proceduley generated levels
WHAT A GAME!
there's the bit where you can just jam too
managed to track an updated version recently with 2013 teams. so, so good.
we were all like `wow this is like the coolest, most technologically modern thing EVER! It says 16 BIT on it!!!`.
Fast forward 19 years and every single game (the cartridges of which would've filled about 2 whole wardrobes) is now available on one page of internet. One page.
but if there is a Super Nintendo equivalent of this, that would be even better.
I've got all the best ones on an emulator at home but now I can play them at work
What a game.
Although it can't have every game EVER on it because I can't see Ayrton Senna's Super Monaco GP II on there. Sorry to burst the bubble lads. The dream is over :(
GO. GO. GO.
Final Lap. Final Lap.
You've done it! Congratulations. You've done it! Congratulations.
I always used to crash at the hairpin at Imola during the San Marino GP playing that game. I know that he actually died on a different part of the track but, y'know... :/
'Congratulations, you've done it!' in that voice, even to this day. No one ever gets the reference.
The way he says 'Congratulations' is quite melodic too, if I recall. Like he's singing a little tune. Can't quite transpose it but... you know what I mean.
Just found it: http://www.ssega.com/?p=161
They need to sort their listings out. It's a tad higgledy piggledy.
i was reading about super monaco gp the other day and saw that it was actually possible to beat g ceara. mind blown.
As I understand it from C&VG back in the day, MM96 was just a modified version. Might be there under that?
But yeah, it appear to not be there.
I was planning to get 8 people to cram around my keyboard and have a race together.
Not sure if it is on there, if it isn't then burn the site down.
Skidmarks is way harder than I remembered.
i'm finding a lot of latency on the controls in everything i play though, so im shit
Back to level par after the second though. I'll keep you posted.
now i just want to sit around all day playing mega drive games. keep humming the emerald hill zone (single player) music, so i think i know what i want to play first.
Toy Story, Lion King and Aladdin were all great.
Also, Golden Axe.
Rented that like four times from Global Video.
Also: Bubsy is a good platformer too, but wickedly difficult.
it's shit. Ignore me. My childhood has been pissed on.
Other great Disney platformers:
Castle of Illusion
Tailspin (2 player is great)
The music when you have to go on a zipwire is INCREDIBLE.
the golden age of platforming, amirite?
1990 to 1996
Sonic, Disney Platformers, Donkey Kong, Mario... fucking hell.
Just nostalgia-ed so hard :( So playing with my brothers, taking it in turns to play. The popcorn gun!
The ghost levels were HORRID.
Donald went INSANE <3
both castle and world of illusion were good too, the latter i would play co-op with my sister, would usually descend into us just stunning each other with our capes constantly, or her (mickey) leaving me (donald, blatantly better than mickey) behind unable to fit through a gap and refusing to help. hopefully the castle of illusion remake will be good.
i think mickey mania was also quite good, although i recall never completing it because of a bastard hard bit.
It feels like that came out relatively recently, whilst the idea of playing a Megadrive seems absolutely ancient.
Mildly related point: I had a SNES emulator running at my 30th and a young person who was in attendance remarked that it was 'well old-school - is this an N64 or something?'. The N64 still seems recent to me :(
also, don't worry about that version of A Bug's Life. That was an unlicensed port, wasn't actually meant to exist. It only came out officially on like PS1/N64 etc. They stopped making new Mega Drive games mostly around 96. In fact I'm surprised Toy Story was even on these systems, it came out around the PS1's launch.
JAMES POND 2: CODENAME ROBOCOD
such a good game and such a successful marketing device as i have enjoyed 7up ever since. drinking some right now actually.
I played the first Streets of Rage into the ground. Co-op with a friend; over and over and over.
In probably my biggest regret in life to date, I never played any of the sequels. Time to put it right. Squeal!
you are going to enjoy streets of rage 2 so very much
Addams Family. I used to play this over and over again as a kid. Don't think I ever beat it.
Let's do this.
Has to be Indiana Jones. Don't think we ever saw the third level.
With no idea of where to go
smash tv was hard too
there is some mention of it, but i've not looked into it properly.
gonna try and round up some people for some General Chaos at some point. Loved that game as a kid.
Also ROAD RASH!
but there's this
and this for DOS games http://www.xtdos.com/
since I found another emulator, need to complete it or go cold turkey...!
Is... anyone else... getting their thinly veileds to violently rock the chair side to side while you sit there and play Afterburner? ...no? Just asking for a friend...
No NHLPA Hockey '93. :-(
Virtua Racing graphics seem worse than I remember. Something to do with the on cartridge chip thing?
3 racing tracks, can't believe I fell for it.
you want to kiss them.
Check out 'Beyond Oasis', known as 'Story of Thor' in Europe. Cracking game, amazing soundtrack by the lad who did the 'Streets of Rage' music too.
What a time to discover this thread.
Where you were a helicopter (Apache iirc) pilot flying over the map doing missions, mostly involving shooting things into oblivion?
i can't remember the game though
this will annoy me now until the end of time
sometimes you used to have to winch down and pick up something as well? might've just been Apache?
There was a series of games based on different maps. I remember there was a San Francisco one where you had to shoot bombs off the Golden Gate bridge. Don't think it was called Apache but idk really.
See you in a week.
it doesn't as much as I thought it did.
Does anyone else remember this game? the art is still incredible.
and it rings a bell. looks like sleepwalker with football
I challenge anyone to complete this game- absolutely nails. Me and one of my friends completed it during a fieldtrip argentina- was only able to cause you could save on the emulation
