Happy Birthday Super Street Fighter II (Mega Drive) !

28 years ago today, the first fighting game that emphasize more on combos was released in Japan.
It was also widely known as one of the biggest carts ever produced for both Super Famicom (30 MEG) and Sega Mega Drive (40 MEG).

Well, yeah. More often's not working too for most of people.



That's why it feels satisfying when it's working.
I tried asking it what it thinks the next Sega console would look like and came up with slightly twisted versions of Sega Saturns.

Weird it chose Saturn and not the more popular Genesis / Mega Drive.

Mega Drive Mini 2 Trivia - Star Mobile

Star Mobile is a conversion of a single-screen X68000 puzzle game by M.N.M Software (Mindware).
Originally completed in 1992 but never released or even announced—it's as deep a cut as can be.

Isn't Paperboy a Nintendo game? I know this because I remember that episode of Captain N: The Game Master.

Actually it's an arcade game.
Ported to many consoles including PC, NES, and Mega Drive.



Captain N has many characters from third party games (Mega Man, Castlevania) so it's no wonder if other third party game characters show up as long as the franchise owner allowed it.
