Shock! I bought a new console! OK, so it’s an old console, but it’s one I’ve wanted for absolutely ages. Someone on rllmuk was selling it with four games and some, uh, “backups”, for a not-to-be-missed price, and lo – it arrived this afternoon.
And it really is very nice. To look at, it’s like a giant Sega Saturn, and the interface is almost identical to the MegaCD. The joypad is like a big version of the NeoGeo Pocket stick on a CD32 pad. It’s ace.
So I played Metal Slug, Magician Lord (which has the worst animation of any game ever made), Samurai Spirits, Top Hunter and Last Resort.
