I was thinking of old things and for reasons I'm not sure of I suddenly remembered this was something:
The game itself was/is a pretty big disappointment but, damn if that trailer didn't hype into trying to convince my father to get me a copy for the christmas of that year. thank god he got me Tie Fighter instead
A while back I played Zero Tolerance, which had a surprising amount of depth and clever shit going for it for being largely a Wolf3D style corridor shooter.
A thing that stood out was with one level where you're on s rooftop, and you get shot at, you look over, and the enemy is a sniper on another rooftop, represented by animated skybox tiles, where you're meant to crawl beneath a low wall.
They really made the very most they possibly could out of the renderer. Bullet holes on walls, animated bloodstains running down walls, smoldering corpses from... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
>>2925434 Zero Tolerance is an above average game, but what makes it worth playing is the sheer ambition that was put into making it, it's s very advanced and flashy for being a corridor shooter, and it's especially noteworthy because it does this on just the regular Genesis.
Also, I might have just been imagining things, but it felt like the enemy AI adapted to how well I was playing. A melee enemy would run up and sucker punch me, throwing me up in the air and landing on my ass, he would then stand behind... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
>>2925454 Wow, I assumed after learning about the system link co-op that it was one of those 'neat tech gimmick in a forgettable experience' sort of things. Reading this stuff makes me think otherwise, and really interests me in playing it sometime.
I just recently got a CD/32X combo unit, and am waiting for the model 1 32X patch cable to come in the mail (and then I gotta dig up a 3.5mm and some RCA for the cd audio out, but whatevs. Such a complex system fusion). In the meantime I've been downloading SCD games like a madman. Keio Flying Squadron really impressed me, and I'm not much of a shmup fan. Still feels good to not blow hundreds on a legit copy.
Planning on purchasing an everdrive MD (maybe a chinadrive to save on cash) and then really letting loose with genny/32X games and foreign region games (japanese CD games are priorities so I can get a little better voice acting).
I'm thinking I go chinadrive because of the not 100% support for foreign bios loading. I'm not convinced krikzz would give you a free upgrade or something once a perfect bios cart existed, so i'd rather ride the cheap model now and buy a good one once it was improved for cd bios loading.
Random anecdote: never played sensible soccer because fucking amiga emulation. Saw there's a Sega cd version and the footage online looks clean. Any reason I shouldn't play that version?
Before I forget, I've been playing a lot of Sonic to try and get a feel for what makes those games fun as well as just enjoying the games again. Tried to beat Sonic Spinball again but died quickly on second stage. I am amazed by visuals on the intermission pinball minigame. Seeing sonic's hands move when you press the flippers is super cool.
Finally bagged myself a Saturn and this game and hot damn I've been missing out. After I got past the initial "oh god what is happening" stage of figuring out how to play, I think I fell in love. Everything about this game is so unique and has that 90s Sega flavour in spades, from the satisfying sound effects when you fly through ring after ring to the gorgeous soundtrack. Really makes me yearn for when Sega were back in their prime. The saturn's draw distance leaves something to be desired but this is easily one of Sega's best.

I found out that nearly every Playstation, since the original, has backwards compatibility with the original games. I knew I could play PS games on my PS3, but I didn't know that EVERY PS system could do it.
I also found out that early revs of the PS3 could play PS2 games, in HD. now, I have something else to hunt down, on Ebay.
