Well, now we’ve torn it.

Yeah, you know this little thread of “I get an idea in my head that I want a game and then I can’t let it go…”

Well, I’ve been on ebay again and this time it’s a Mega-CD. I mean, the funny thing is that a trawl through eBay actually kind of leaves you with the very clear feeling of “man, there was a lot of bulllllllll-crap on the Mega-CD”. But nothing – not Jaguar XJ220, not Cobra Command, not the million copies of Thunderhawk that people still label as rare – can undermine the simple beauty of the Mega-CD. She’s just such… a beast! (Mark 1 that is…)

Honestly, this is the best advert i’ve ever seen for it because looking at it is all you really need to do. Don’t mention the games, the price, the basic underpowering. Just make people look at it and… drool.

    though it’s a shame it’s that japanese Mega Drive where they did the 16-bit lettering all big. that looks jank.

    well now you’ve made me look it up on ebay, and now I know there’s a saturn version, but no patches sadly. I’ve still never played so don’t know the hype, all I know is I want it hehe

    Haha is that the one in Portugal? Read it’s in Japanese but then for some reason I thought it was a pal one? Maybe I just figured that cos it was Portugal.

      By which I mean, I’m confused at to why it would be in Japanese if it was a Portugal release. I guess maybe the guy just imported it himself. But the thing I read saying it was only in Japanese might have been wrong too…

    I’ve just realized this post didn’t mention anything about snatcher, i went from looking up mega cd to snatcher then commented about that. I must be going mad, or somebody mentioned snatcher in another post not to long ago

      I did wonder what game you meant for a moment there! There is an unofficial sequel to Snatcher called Policenauts that has a fan translation as it never made its way to the west. Always wanted to check that out!
