Keep at it man! It's so satisfying to beat... took me about a week when I first played through it.

The best Genesis OST for me next to Shinobi 3.

I've only beaten one Genesis game this year, which is shameful. I need to hit up an RPG soon, I think. Maybe a Shining game or Vermilion.

If you've never beaten Sword of Vermilion, I strongly recommend it. The atmosphere is tremendous, the OST is stupendous, and the bosses are horrendous:

I love his eye panning over to his other head, like he's making sure his other half is keeping up with the horrendous-ness :lol:

Damn! I do dig TFIV though. It has some balls to it, unlike 3, and the OST is fantastic. Always a good time blowing entire stages away with that CRAW.

Don't ever ask Yu Suzuki about Sword of Vermillion. For some reason he gets angry and deflects the question. Found that out the hard way a few years ago.

I've never played Sword of Vermillion before. I've been meaning to try it out some time. I hear it's a bit clunky and has aged quite a lot. It looks interesting though with all the different gameplay styles.

You are not the one to say this, apparently he considers it a fairly poor game that reflects poorly on him or something of the kind.

Still, I like Yu Suzuki a lot as a designer so I want to check it out sometime.

I own an Ever Mega Drive v2 and am always a fan of hardware, but I am loving Fusion these days for all things Sega. It does such a great job on Genesis, Sega CD, 32X, SMS, & GG.

Any one using a USB Sega Genesis controller? The Buffalo SNES controller is great and will be hard to match but I just feel wrong playing SEGA games with it :P. Any recommendations?

@mas, I'd recommend loading up Sega CD games in Fusion before you start spending a lot on the better games. It cost me $0 & took me 5 minutes or less to DL Snatcher and get it running on my first attempt. Then justify ponying up the cash if it's a game you really like. My Sega CD Collection wad mostly commons and it sold for a decent amount back in 2013. I'm scared to even look at Sega CD prices today. Just my 2 cents.

Also keep in mind Fusion can run real Sega CD games from your PC CD ROM tray if you want to save wear & tear on the new (to you) but fragile console while collecting actual games. You don't need a beefy computer. I have a 6 year old entry level Windows 7 machine that runs it great.
