Can you imagine if Nintendo's primary team released a mainline Mario game like Sonic 06? Shigsy would have their thumbs.

SUper Monkey Ball on the Gamecube is amazing, not least because you get really fun monkey themed versions of pool, bowling and golf on top of the already steller main games and monkey target. It was a perfect match for that controller too.


All stars racing is a lot of fun but with a big flaw in that the 'all stars' are all shite.

If the Sega megadrive was released maybe just a year later things could have been very different, from what I gathered years ago nintendo were close to finalizing the super nintendo design and build but once the megadrive appeared they realized it needed some serious upgrades to compete hence stuff like the inbuilt scaling capabilities and the good sound chip. I am a big SEGA fan myself but have come to enjoy nintendo and all it's output. My big issue now with nintendo is that apart form the original Wii it has done bugger all of interest for about 10 years now and for gods sake does it need some new ideas for games, mario and zelda should be fucked off to history by now.

A lot of SNES games were plagued by slowdown, whereas megadrive games were often much smoother and faster. The SNES had all those colours and snazzy graphics effects and most people seem to prefer the sound on the SNES, but then you listen to Streets of Rage 2 and it blows everything else out of the water.

And the story was based on a dolphin that fell in love with a woman who tossed him off.

Pfft look at you lot talking about Sega like you think you know the score. I bet none of you ever played on a Saturn.

If ever a game qualified as a singularly astounding, unique and emotionally resonant piece of interactive art it's Panzer Dragoon Saga, so less of this talk of Sega being no more than 'high-quality trash' lads.

Sega provided a platform for the purest essence of distilled gaming perfection in the Saturn era, but the problem is no cunt bought it because the only thing that speaks to you is monkeys running around in plastic balls. FUCK YOU ALL

It's not called Super Monkey Ball it's called Monkeyrama.

Sorry

Compare the play in this https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qZfNrJXTeCA

To this : https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IqhIDYkeQvA

It's the most complex shmup in turns of mechanics/scoring and until the very recently released PS4 version was the only one you could have on a home system, apart from mame.

I can rarely reach stage 3 on 1 credit, yet mame says I've spent 18 hours playing it.

I just tried Vectorman again there, and it's pushing my shit in. Gonna skip to the sequel. I'm playing a Mega Drive collection on the 360, and should probably just bring my arcade stick into the bedroom, as the 360 controller is awful to go back to.

You know what? A lot of these games seem a lot harder cause of the 4:3 ratio, too. Vectorman is a great example - you only have a relatively small area showing on screen, which makes dodging and prediction an awful lot trickier.

I must play Sonic Spinball again. Never been much of a Sonic fan, but this compilation lets you rank games, and I gave that one 5 stars last time I played it. High score: 16692500
