    Wow! I can't believe I didn't notice it before. I must be one of those hidden gems for the SNES. It's a pixelated platform game which tends to be my weakness :D

    Mate you need to do a review on this game for your YouTube channel - that looks awesome ;-)

    Did anyone play Global Gladiators on the Mega Drive?
    It was pretty sweet!

    I hired it once from the video store back in the 90s. I thought it was pretty good. I planned on buying it but it just sort of passed me by. Thanks for bringing it up again - I might fire up the old black box soon if I can find a copy on eBay :D

    I tried to play Dick Tracy last night on SMS. I failed miserably.

    On an emulator?

    I only had the NES version but also remember it being crazy difficult with terrible controls.

    Yes I played it on emulator. I played it on the console when I was a lad, but it was not easy at all - I still remember it being crazy difficult. It was on par with Operation Wolf in terms of difficulty.

    Still on the neo geo mate?

    I've dusted off my old power mac and have been playing Spectre 3d. Its amazing how many good mac games/free shareware existed.

    Still firing up the master system games?

    I MAY have one you can have.
    Let me have a look on the weekend.

    I bought one and a Mega drive years ago, never got the Megadrive to work and it's been disposed of, but I still (as far as I know) have the game. If I can find it, it's yours for free.

    Thanks mate I appreciate that, but the only problem for me is that my Mega Drive doesn't work anymore either :( I'm sure someone like @InFlames wouldn't mind it though - but I do appreciate the thought mate.

    Oh mate this Neo Geo Emu I'm using at the moment has some absolute gems on it. Do a google search for NeoRageX - it's got some beauties in there. I totally think that this emu is better than Mame in terms of getting the NeoGeo roms working.

    Yes mate Master System will be something I spend more time on. Lately I've been playing Fantasy Zone and Sonic 2 a lot - I just can't get enough of the classics. I watched one of your videos recently too - the Terminator review on NES :)

    Sonic 2! So timeless!

    Wish I had time to still do those reviews. They were so much fun to make.

    Downloaded Neorage X. Will get back to you with how it goes.

    No worries mate - it should come with a heap of pre-loaded games so no need to download any.

    The one thing about Sonic games that always confused me though was how the games were so different between ports. In other words, how come the Master System version and Mega Drive versions were never anything alike in terms of gameplay or even story - they were completely different.

    I really enjoy Medal of Honor and the old COD games.

    Nothing beats the originals. Those old MoH games that were about WWI and WWII are awesome. All these new modern warfare and black ops and online games don't hold a torch to the originals.
