Man, who at Sega do I have to blow to get a Sonic game with the look and feel of the Sonic CD cut scenes.

I had a CDX... several actually. Gave my original one to my nephew and he broke it cuz he doesn't appreciate shit. I mean he was young at the time so I can't really be made at him, but he's grown now and still like that... Anyway, I bought another one and I am pretty sure I sold that one too because the thing that holds the door down broke and I used to have a rubber band around it. I know it was just sitting in the closet for years.

Anyway I felt like the shit when I got it. No one else I knew had one or had even heard of it (I had one cousin who had the original Sega CD megablocks building set system). Brought it to school and listened to The Fugees. Sonic CD was easily my favorite game. I bought Snatcher and some light guns but I couldn't really get into it.

Listened to Sonic CD (US releasee) in the car while today. Still love that OST, so many memories playing it back in the day. The Japanese one is great, but I don't have the fondness for them like I do for Spencer Nilsen's tracks.

One of the nice things about the recent re-release is that people don't have to choose between two legitimately good soundtracks, even though the theme song You Can Do Anything is tragically missing. I think the original soundtrack is better in almost every way, but the American tracks for Stardust Speedway and Metallic Madness are GREAT.

One thing that's really interesting is how the Japaneses MCD version always switches to the bad future mix for the Metal Sonic race, whereas the US MCD version maintains the good future mix if you've earned it. This matters a TON since the Japanese bad future mix is a perfect match for the race, and the US good future mix is also thrilling here, whereas the slower US bad future mix isn't. I'm told this nice localization was not translated over on the re-release. Score one for the MCD originals!

So this happened. Anyone got a link that will detail what to look for to confirm legit? I have no reason to believe it's fake I just want to be sure. The disc markings on the underside of the disc match legit.

No idea how to confirm legitimacy, but congrats! That's a great looking copy of one of my favourite games ever. Have you played it before? If not, I'm jealous, you're in for a treat.

No I haven't played it before. Should I wait until I get a CRT/PVM and use the light gun or does it matter.

I can take pictures of my copy if you're interested. I got my copy for $100. Sounds like you also got a good deal. What did you pay? I'm at the point in my sickness where $100 for a game can be a good deal

The game plays fine without a light gun. Enjoy!

I'd go for it. The shooting sequences are few and far between, 95% of the game is exploration/dialog, so you're not missing much by going full Pad vs Pad + Justifier.

And man, you're in for a great ride. Enjoy it, the graphics, atmosphere, and music are all top notch. And the voice acting is actually very good, especially if you put it in context of the year it was released!

The only way to be sure that it is legit is to send it to me for a close inspection. Will PM address.

The actual lightgun scenes are very limited. The screen is broken up into 9 boxes and you can only shoot a direct shot in each box. It's less clunky to just do it with the dpad, honestly.

Policenauts does have free aiming, though. That one's fun with a lightgun.

If I remember correctly, you'll get a chance very early in the game to do a practice shooting range. You can decide there if you'd rather wait until you get a light gun but it's only a small portion of the game anyway so I think it would be best to just use a DPAD.

Collectors' GAF, can you help me on this?
I'm trying to find out whether or not the Japanese vanilla Keio Yuugekitai comes with the raccoon card, on top of the obi and regular registration card. I'm sure the 'cardboard box' edition of the game includes that, but at the moment I'm more interested in the regular print.
Thanks in advance guys! ^_-

Every SegaCD game should auto-start from boot right? Just noticed my copy of Shining Force CD seems to require me to press start?

On a side note, how awesome is that opening narration retelling Shining Force 1's end events? Game just has amazing sound design.

Can't remember if I set it up myself, but all my JP games require to press Start to load, on my Japanese Mega CD 2.

I played through Road Avenger today. It is by far the best of the Renovation animated fmv games. I'm a little surprised at how much I liked it. It seems easier than the others I guess mostly because the patterns never change. The other games feel kind of cheap with the difficulty and not fun. It's probably my favorite fmv game on the system.

Next up is Snatcher.

It's a classic. Great animation, wild scenarios, simple but relatable story. I'd love an HD version somehow.

I mean, I liked everything else about Snatcher. It's just towards the end they were like "we have a half hour" and when you get to the end there's a 40 minute speech by the bad guy. Chill out a bit, Kojima. Narratives are better when a little is left to the imagination.

The thing that's holding me back from Policenauts is that I think I should improve my Japanese enough to play it without a translation and I want to get my PC98 working because I own it on that too.

Even though characters magically know every little detail about the world and the technology in it, I think Policenauts is better than Snatcher with the ending. Snatcher felt like it ended too quickly with a huge plot dump out of nowhere. The build up in Policenauts felt perfect.
