A few friends have received the MEGASD today on the mail, and it looks like the news are not that great. People are complaining about the sound on the system. To this moment I have two people that mentioned no sound on all SEGA CD games, and one reported no sound on SEGA Genesis games, plus Mega Drive games do not load. It looks like the TerraOnion MEGA SD is off to a bad start. One of these friends said he does not recommend the MEGA SD to anyone, it’s been a hassle to him to make the thing work properly. I have never seen people complain about the Everdrive, and this is supposed to be better.
I have not purchased one, because it is quite expensive and I rather get my third Commodore Amiga computer on my collection than this and they would be pretty much the same price, LOL!
In all seriousness, I will keep an eye on this development and report it right here for you!
There is nothing like sit down, relax and see some of your favorite YouTubers from the classic gaming scene review a new retro console that we still can’t get our hands on! Let’s get real, we are not big enough (yet!) to receive some of these review units ourselves when they are about to be released, so we have to rely on our trustworthy YouTube gaming celebrities to know what’s the deal on some new toy that’s coming along!
The actual SEGA Genesis Mini will be released to the public on September 19th, 2019, and it’s being expected to be at least to the level of Nintendo’s NES and SNES mini consoles, so, now that some units are out in the able hands of journalists and YouTubers, what’s the buzz around the unit?
What everyone was waiting for finally is here. An excellent solution for people that want to enjoy SEGA CD on real SEGA Genesis / Mega Drive consoles, without the need of the clunky and defective-prone SEGA CD unit from SEGA.
Terraonion just announced their MEGA SD FPGA cartridge, that allows for you to do just that. Slip a few SEGA CD ISOs inside the MEGA SD cartridge via a microSD card, and put the MEGA SD on your SEGA Genesis and you are ready to go!
While Michael Jackson had a close relationship with Sega, appearing in Space Channel 5 and starring in Michael Jackson’s Moonwalker, there have long been stories of his involvement in the Sonic the Hedgehog 3 soundtrack.
Back in 2009, Kotaku reported that the rumor had been confirmed by Jackson’s composer and musical director Brad Buxer, who said Jackson’s uncredited compositions ended up in the final soundtrack.
A New MasterGear 4.2 for Windows and Linux was released today, and this version fixes several bugs in the replay feature and adds remaining replay time display.
MasterGear (MG) is a program that emulates 8bit SEGA videogames on your computer. It runs games made for SEGA MasterSystem (Mark3 in Japan) and GameGear, as well as their predecessors: SG1000, SC3000, SF7000, and Mark2. MG will also help hobbyists who still write software for these systems to debug their works without using rare and costly development hardware.
