well it was only a preliminary hack, basically somebody got Sonic 1 Genesis to run on 32X hardware and bypassed the Genesis somehow or something like that. It was not very stable if I remember correctly but he said the only reason he was doing it was to learn the system. I started out trying to prog...

that is the reason I gave up entirely on Sega Saturn, everything is either ultra rare or too expensive. I think I only had 20 or so games when I sold mine and gave up entirely.

HomeBrew on the 32X appears to be alive, I played 2 home brew games one was a port of Sonic the Hedgehog and the other was Wolfenstein and that one was actually pretty good.

I only ever had it for PC and 32X, to be honest I preferred the 32X version for one reason, I didn't have to fiddle with DOS and it's overly complicated command structure and I could never get doom to run on any version of Windows I ever tried it on always crashed. But We were poor I didn't get my f...

you can store them on an SD card and play them back now last I heard, but they are tied to the console they are purchased on. If you sell the Wii the only way to keep your VC games is to call Nintendo and disconnect the account tied to the system and then connect that account to the next console you...

this was *the* game that ate all my quarters as a kid right next to good old Mortal Kombat. I have it on my cell phone SNES, GC, had it on Saturn, and would kill to get an original arcade cabinet running this game. If I ever buy a Neo Geo this is the first game I am buying.
