My Life With SEGA remembers it all in Flashback

This week on My Life With SEGA, AJ plays the SEGA Genesis classic Flashback: The Quest for Identity. Here’s a question: if it’s titled “Flashback”, why does it take place in the future? Anyway, here’s what AJ has to say about this week’s show:

This is largely considered one of the best cinematic platformers ever made, along with Prince of Persia and Another World. It had one of the most ambitious marketing campaigns I’ve ever seen, boldly exclaiming it’s “A CD-ROM game in a CARTRIDGE!”. My brother and I were amazed….back in 1993.

Is it a flashback worth having, or should we data-dump it like a fresh brownie?

    Genesis seems to always be better than SNES. Like you said, the cutscenes are slow on the SNES and it’s being censored is just ridiculous.

    This is why I like Wednesdays, so I can watch My Life with SEGA.

    @Dubba814 – Hehe! I’m glad you dig the show, bro. Another game that was censored was Robocop vs Terminator. Hot damn, it’s bloodier than a tampon. LOL!

    @Tanner – When I made this several months back, I hadn’t been able to replace it yet. Since then, I’ve picked up a CDX. I have Cliffhanger, Demolition Man, Battlecorps, Soulstar, Rise of the Dragon, Rebel Assault, Who Shot Johnny Rock?, Power Rangers….
