Hardware Review: 16Bit Pocket MD - An Unexpectedly Decent Portable Mega Drive

Added: 08.02.2019 12:00 | 2 views | 0 comments


Time to put that Sega Nomad into storage?
This year, Sega will release the , its own take on the retro console craze which Nintendo has done rather well out of in recent years with the and Classic Editions. However, it's not the first time that the SNES rival has been resurrected using modern technology; in fact, we've been seeing clones of the Mega Drive / Genesis for the past decade, the vast majority of which have been . Plagued by poor emulation, terrible controls and hopelessly inaccurate sound replication, these devices have been huge disappointments – and the ones which carry Sega's official blessing haven't been any better either, often exhibiting the same issues because they're based on largely the same 'system on a chip' tech.
When news hit our ears that Japanese company Columbus Circle – – was about to release its own portable Mega Drive clone, we had little reason to suspect it would change this sorrowful tradition. Nonetheless, we duly ordered one – mostly out of morbid curiosity – and we've been pleasantly surprised. Not only does the unit come with a good screen that really makes the pixels stand out (although viewing angles aren't brilliant and some games appear slightly stretched), it also has a fantastic rolling D-pad and a six button setup which means you can play games like Super Street Fighter II perfectly (in case you were wondering, it works fine with games like and , both of which have issues with the official six-button controller on original hardware). It's also comfortable to use for prolonged periods and is highly portable. Oh, and Mega Everdrive carts work on it, if you're into that kind of jazz.

From SNES to Switch.
Hercules is well and truly on his way to Nintendo Switch, as a remaster of the classic '90s platformer Gods is on its way to the console.
Fittingly called , this new release has been developed by Robot Riot Games and actually released on Steam towards the end of last year. The remaster presents the original title - developed by the Bitmap Brothers and released on systems like the SNES, Sega Mega Drive and more around 1991/92 - in a whole new look; you can actually play either with the original pixel graphics or in a "modern 3D mode with an extensive new soundtrack". You can see the visual differences in the images below.

Feature: What The Creator of Ecco The Dolphin Did Next

Added: 01.02.2019 14:00 | 2 views | 0 comments


"It is still 'us', the original Ecco the Dolphin team!".
Ed Annunziata's career spans all the way back to the early '90s, and includes titles such as Spider-Man, Chakan: The Forever Man, Cyborg Justice and Kolibri, all games that appeared on Sega hardware. However, his name is most closely associated with the groundbreaking , a 1992 Genesis / Mega Drive release which established a best-selling franchise.
Annunziata's connection with Ecco could be seen as both a blessing and a curse, because it has arguably placed the designer in the shadow of his most famous creation, despite the fact that he has been involved with many, many notable games since then.

Feature: Say Hello To Vixen 357, A Lost Mega Drive Classic That's Hitting The West This Year

Fire Emblem with mechs?
Masaya is a studio that is closely associated with the strategy RPG series , a franchise which went head-to-head with Nintendo's Fire Emblem in the '90s. However, the company – via Career Soft, one of its internal teams – had been dabbling in this genre for some time before that, releasing Elthlead (PC-8801, MSX2), Gaia no Monshou (PC-8801, PC Engine) and Gaiflame (PC Engine). Indeed, it would continue to explore this style of game even after Langrisser (Warsong in the west) had achieved critical and commercial notoriety, via the 1992 Mega Drive release Vixen 357.
, there's a pleasing sense of synchronicity to the fact that this mech-based epic is also going to get a second chance in 2019. – the same company that has revived forgotten gems like Beggar Prince, and – has announced that it will be releasing Vixen 357 in the west for the first time ever.
